  • I saw IM3, finally. Too much GOOP but aside from that Downey was amazingly charming.
    Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

    • I love Chances Are.
      A lot of movies I loved as a tween star Ryan O'Neal - Chances Are, Love Story, Irreconcilable Differences. I don't really know what to do with that.

      • Ryan O'Neal is a fascinating person who was once a great screen presence who also happens to be a total fucking monster in real life. And I enjoyed all those movies, too!

        • OMG, I just can't with Ryan o'Neal. When I see an article about him I'm all "What has he done again?" Still can't hate the movies he's in, though.

          • I saw Much Ado About Nothing yesterday. It was very enjoyable, a lark of a movie. Much Ado is not my favorite Shakespeare and the success of its performance has everything to do with the chemistry between Beatrice and Benedick IMO. Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof didn't have a ton of heat but there was an intimacy that made them convincing enough. Gorgeous production design and Nathan Fillion basically stole the show. It almost feels wrong to watch a Joss production without Joss's words but Shakespeare is a decent stand-in .

            • Joss treats Fred and Wesley like they have the greatest chemistry on earth. It baffles.

              • I keep wavering over whether to even try seeing that. In favor: Nathan Fillion stealing the show. Against: Fred/Wesley redux. I like Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof, too; it's a shame.

                • We saw Man of Steel tonight. I think I'm so enamored with balance of snark and action in Marvel Comics movies that DC Comics movies and their purely functional dialogue are now too joyless and one-note for me? (With the exception of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...and maybe RED, which I didn't see but hear had a few funnies.) Batman and Superman might be the world's least humorous heroes to begin with, so I would've forgiven the screenwriter if he tried to compensate a little bit. I did enjoy it, though! The casting was great and Henry Cavill is beauteous. They really played up the ways in which growing up as a little boy with weirdo powers could suck.

                  • Laa just summed up why DC Comics sucks and Marvel is The Best. Seriously, I can't with DC and their super tedious characters. They never have any fun.

                    • Yes! I was impressed, though, that they created a nerdy, likable, conflicted Clark. The use of flashback is great. We get glimpses of when he was learning to be strong, so the character we're following now is not frustratingly naive as many previous Supes tend to be. Still, the three or four lines intended for chuckles were groan-worthy. It's not funny-related, but there's an out-of-character twist at the end that I liked, mainly because I'm in favor of anything that can (believably) make Superman more interesting. Even though I understand comic nerds' love of canon...srsly. Why reject a good explanation of a character trait that was previously just boring fact? (spoiler link)

                      • I sort of see the Cumberbatch appeal after Star Trek! Still lurve Spock.

                        • Mr. Issie went to go see it a few weeks ago and he's totally given in to the Cumberbatch love. Like, I would not be surprised to see a few Cumberbitches sites on our browsing history. We started Sherlock because he was so into BC and he floves it. I like it okay, it's clever and well done, but it's not ZOMG my favorite ever. He marathoned both seasons in a day, but I could only sit through the first season before I needed a break.

                            Blasphemy!

                            I still haven't watched Star Trek. Must do soon.

                            • I don't get the Cumberbatch thing at all. He's funny looking and bland and I liked Ricardo Montalban better in that role.

                              • vanessa, we just saw Star Trek today, and mr.o agrees with you.

                                As for me, I was all about the Cumberbatch in this one. I have a super hard time rooting *against* him, which meant I was pretty conflicted most of the movie. It was good, though.
