Finally got around to watching this movie. I forgot how long it was, but daaaaaaaaaaamn it seemed like it took forever to watch that.

However, I won't lie: I enjoyed it. Not because it was the best movie in the history of forever, but because it was the first time in a long time a movie has had me completely entranced, waiting to find out what was going to happen next.

The funny thing about it is the only reason I decided to watch it is because people keep referencing it, and I wanted to be "in" on the joke, lol. It was worth it, however.

Pros: Visually beautiful, interesting plot, excellent score.

Cons: Could have developed the characters a bit more/given them more backstory, reasons for doing/being what they do/how they came to be able to do it - but this isn't so distracting, though.

I didn't walk away from it shipping anything, but I am glad it didn't get bogged down with some shitty romance between main male/female character like I suspected it would from early on.

1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?

Me and 2.0 watched the latest DC Comics animated feature last night (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths). It. Was. Awesome. I think I liked it better than Superman Batman: Public Enemies! Definitely one of the best ones they have come out with. Also, they are going to have Batman: Under The Hood coming out - and I am already there! Seriously, I loved that arc. I hope they include "Death in the Family" prominently in it, because that would make it all the better.

Finally, my baby has a character crush! We were watching this movie, and talking about Owlman's (Batman's evil counterpart) character design, which she thought was ugly. Cue another redesigned character, and her exact words were "Wow, but he is handsome!"

Which character?


I just tilted my head to the side and looked at her face. She was really into him, lol. I mean, there was a romance in this movie involving Martian Manhunter and another character, and there was a kissing scene. Instead of the "ew, kissing that's gross I don't want to look" thing she usually says, she goes "nooooooo don't kiss her!!!". By then, I'm just sort of silently lolling in the background at it all. It's funny that - out of all the characters to crush on - it's him.

As for me, I was too busy drooling over President Deathstroke and the evil Captain Marvel counterpart.

Not only have I finished Season 5 of House, I've also managed to catch myself up to the current episode! Schway, as Terry McGinnis would say. I will say that season 5 was kinda disappointing in comparison to the previous seasons, mainly because it focused a lot on Thirteen and I couldn't really connect with her (or Taub, though I didn't mind Kutner at all. Just my luck... sigh). However, the last few episodes of that season were awesome, and the first episode of season 6 was as well.

So far, this season is alright. I wish that the old team was together, but it's alright though. I still don't ship much of anything. I think I'm tired of shipping, especially when the pairings I do like never seem to become canon.Spoilers and I can now address everything I've seen in the wanks about this series )

I finished watching House Season 4 two days ago (I'm actually halfway through Season 5). It was alright. I've discovered that I'm not a huge fan of change, at least not after something I like has been established. This season shook everything up, and while it was exciting at first, I quickly tired of it.

I didn't really like any of the new characters with the exception of Amber. I would have loved it if she had stayed and one of the others had went. Still, the last two episodes of the season were awesome - and I don't think I would have found it so if I didn't care for the character who bit the big one. I still don't ship much of anything in this show, sadly.

Also, I am feeling much better now!

Two posts from me in one day woo hoo!

Finished watching the last episode of season 1 of House today. I love this show, House is such an ass. I still don't ship anyone in the show, though.

Chase and Foreman can be asses as well. I like Foreman but I'm kind of undecided on Chase right now (as I am on Cuddy). Wilson is cool, though, and Cameron is as well. I like the dynamics of each character's relationship with House. All in all, I'm keeping an open mind and not letting all the wank about the series color my opinions on the characters.

Now, for the Princess and the Frog.

I went to see this on my birthday, but I was so sick that I couldn't enjoy it as much as I would have liked. I was happy to find that there were no highly offensive stereotypes of black folk in the movie. The plot itself was so very rushed that I found myself wanting more, though.

The music was alright - I think the best song was the villain's song. I found Prince Naveen to be my favorite character out of all of them, but I tend to like characters who redeem themselves anyway. It is funny that the character I had the most mixed emotions on on would end up my favorite. All in all, I give it a B-. Better than Hunchback, not as good as Hercules. Kiddo loved it a lot, though.

So, I finally got the chance to watch the anime "Cowboy Bebop". Don't worry - there are no major spoilers in this in case you haven't seen it.

First of all, it's not in a genre I prefer. In fact, the genres and tropes it falls under/exhibits are ones I usually actively avoid (Space, Destroyed Earth, etc.) - but since it's in the crime genre I dove right in. I mainly watched this out of desperation for something new to watch, when usually I would pass it by. Very rarely do I find something outside of my preferred genres that I like, and this show was a prime example of why I usually stick to those genres.

Overall, I didn't like it - but considering that it's not a genre I like, I'm really not that surprised. It really did nothing for me. It had its LOLtastical moments, but I felt underwhelmed by the storyline and the ending. I think had the Spike/Vicious animosity been addressed in all the episodes, i.e having each case connected to it, I might have liked it more. I do love the music, however.

It's funny, though. I took a peek at the fan fiction section, and Spike/Faye seems to be the most popular pairing. I saw more potential in Jet/Faye, personally.
