Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown

What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]
Saturday Double-Feature

Wolverine...well, Hugh Jackman had his shirt off, and Liev Schriber devoured the scenery. That's about all I have to say about that.

Star Trek. I am pleased. Send more Bones. Also, it was nice to see that J.J. Abrams attempted to avoid tokenism in the casting; I saw Starfleet members of pretty much all races and even a mixture of ages, which was nice. A little more body-shape diversity would have been nice. I will probably go see it again in the theater once more on my own and will make sure my local family see it.

I miss having my clan around me for these sorts of movies.

Also, I need a good Bones icon, for my only two Star Trek icons are this one and one of Spock Prime labeled "Bitch, please."


Yeah, when I saw the shooting guy in Wolverine, I said, "hey, he's got John Woo mutant powers!," and I don't think the couple I was with got it. The movie was pure mindless violent entertainment, but I wasn't expecting anything else, so, hey. And, yeah, Hugh. ;-)

I'll catch Star Trek today, most likely, though I promised I'd go to one of my students' senior recital at 2, so I guess I'll catch an evening show....and then I can talk about it with you.

I'm not getting as much writing done as I'd hoped, although I *am* revising a story an editor accepted but wanted some changes in, so that's something, I guess....

Urban did a great job. I was very pleased overall with the film. :)

I enjoyed the heck out of this movie. Tons of Action Kirk (tm)! Oodles of Conflicted Spock (tm)! Ladlefulls of Bitchy McCoy(tm)!

Did I mention how many times Kirk hangs off the edge of things?
Did I mention how many times Kirk gets pummeled almost to unconsciousness?
Did I mention how many times Kirk.... oh, sorry. He *is* cute, dammit.

Side note: WTF with Uhura/Spock?

Now that I've seen the movie, I agree; WTF Spock/Uhura? Guess the reboot steals the first prime-time, TV-fiction cross-racial kiss from Kirk and Uhura, huh?

Apparently - Dad said to Mom that part of the reason Kirk was giving the two of them that look was that he was supposed to get one of those kisses.

I am willing to go with Spock/Uhura right now and see what happens, but like everyone else there's a lot of WTF for me in it.
