God, I haven't updated in who knows how long...
But anyway, I just saw Iron Man 2.
I fucking loved it!
First, RDJ was impeccable as ever as Tony Stark. I adored Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer; he's so cute in a nerdy kind of way. And Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury = fucking badass! Oh, yeah, and Mickey Rourke was pretty cool as Whiplash. There were lots of funny moments too, and the easter eggs pointing to Captain America and Thor ad the Avengers were totally squee-worthy.
Unfortunately, Scarlett Jo was rather meh as Black Widow, even hough she was really hot, and kicked ass rather well and Don Cheadle was somewhat weak as Rhodey. I guess it could be attributed to the fact that Black widow didn't exactly get that much to do, and I'm still not totally over the whole Rhodey recasting thing, so I'm not going to be too harsh. Also, there were more than a few moments that felt a bit clunky, and could've been left out of the final cut of things.
But all in all, this was a great and fun superhero movie, and I can't wait to see the all-encompassing universe surrounding it.
I've hit the big 2-0 now.
I'm just one year away from being old enough to buy alcohol.
I'm 20 years old now. I don't know how to feel about that. I really don't.
I'll admit that I'm not that much into Star Trek, but I was totally fired up for the movie. I finally saw it today with my dad (who's a Trekkie himself), and we both loved it. It was awesome, fast-paced, fun and all around great. I loved Zachary Quinto as Spock, he was awesomeness. And Chris Pine was so like Captain Kirk in the original series. Anton Yelchin was especially adorable as Chekov, but there just wasn't enough of Simon Pegg as Scotty, though he sure was funny in every scene he was in.
Now I might as well start watching the show...
So I watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine today, in the theater, and TBH, I actually liked it. I don't think it's the best of the X-Men movies, but it was certainly fun and enjoyable. I loved Taylor as Gambit (sexy-ness), Ryan as Deadpool (his lack of screentime was made up for by his badassery) and Liev as Sabertooth. I'm also hoping for more Emma Frost in the future movies; I like her.
I've also recently started reading the Avengers comics in preparation for the awesome epicness that's going to be coming out soon. I've also been reading The Ultimates, which is pretty fun, even if some things kinda annoy me in it (like Hank Pym's characterization). They are NEVER going to let him live down that incident where he hit Janet, huh?
On another note, I've been feeling sick. I'm pretty sure it's not the swine flu, though.
You and I are FUCKING DONE PROFESSIONALY!!
WHY COULDN'T THEY JUST USE CLAIRE'S BLOOD TO HEAL UP NATHAN?! WHY?!?!?!?!
