Oh, actually Simon, I wasn’t referring to that specifically. I think them changing it from the squid monster made TOTAL sense. I was actually talking about him cutting out THIS SCENE which is, perhaps, the entire POINT OF THE WHOLE THING.
They missed an opportunity to needlessly get Henry Cavill shirtless again. A RARE MISS HOLLYWOOD.
At least Catwoman was campy and badass though.
Mr. Freeze was just garbage town.
I would argue that Watchmen wasn’t BAD, but I might lose that argument. If not for how gloriously they managed to fuck up the ending… which… god, just why? What the point was in changing that, I will never understand. But again, it had merits to it. Similar commentary I would give this movie, honestly.
You combine this proposal instead performed by Star Wars characters covered in glitter and basically you’ve created the trifecta of guilty-pleasures-I-cannot-let-go-of-no-matter-how-much-they-hurt-me-emotionally-and-socially.
That makes me sad, also, but you know what makes me even more sad?
I can’t. Stop. Watching it.
::recalls days of Star Wars forum role playing in high school::
Yeah, no, that probably is my boyfriend, actually.
Friday. Time to get down.
Oooohhh yeah. Lea Michele is just sitting around waiting to pounce. Don’t think she has the right sass for Elphie. She’d be a better Glinda, honestly.
Are Idina and Kristen completely off the table? Because they are perfect and they’re all I want.
FYI this was the day I was an extra.
Just, you know. Thought I should brag about that.
Or Brett Ratner, let’s be real.
Not sure why I wrote “assignment” there. Totally meant to say “excitement”? Which makes a shit ton more sense?
This is what I get for staying up until 4 AM perfecting my blue meth recipe.
FUCKING NERD ALERT LIKE WHOA Y’ALL:
God, I feel all alone in the world. I think Disney buying Star Wars was a brilliant move, particularly on the heels of The Avengers being really fucking good when it had no business being so, on paper.
And JJ is sort of perfect for Star Wars? He’s really good at humanizing characters and making them relatable. He took a series I was never particularly fond of (Star Trek) and modernized it and made me LOVE it?
If there is something a sequel of Star Wars would absolutely require, it would be making me actually giving a shit about the characters in that universe again, which the prequels OBVIOUSLY failed miserably at. It would also need some modernizing, much in the same way Star Trek did. Star Wars fans, largely, are a lot of adults who grew up loving them and want to see the story grow with them. Targeting the stories to kids DOESN’T FLY clearly, so I’m really optimistic that JJ will do this, being a fan himself.
I just feel so lonely in my geeky as fuck assignment. I feel 12 all over again.
Is this going to be one of those “whipping boy” kind of things? Does SOMEBODY get to have sex FOR Cameron, on her behalf? Where does someone get an application for something like that……..
Not gonna lie… when that story hit yesterday on Deadspin, my FIRST instinct was to come here to talk about it. And I don’t comment, like, at all anymore, but I know VG is the place to go for fucked up scandal talk. Te’o brought me out of retirement.
SO. I want to know why the media is covering for this dude, because THAT’S WHAT IT SEEMS LIKE TO ME.
A HOAX my ass. He was tricked? So when his father told ESPN the magazine that she visited him in Hawaii… was HE lying to his dad or was his dad lying to ESPN? And when Lennay’s brother (ALSO FAKE PERSON) called Te’o to tell him that she had passed away (NEVER HAPPENED) was this the person running the fake Twitter account or was Te’o lying about a phone call AND a brother? How about how he claimed to send flowers to her funeral? Did he lie about sending them? Did he send them? Were they returned?!
No, fuck this guy, he was lying for publicity and he got it. And now, in light of his publicity being based on LIES LIES LIES he’s getting even MORE publicity.
Wow, this makes me feel old? Videogum old.
Where am I?!
