weewarrior: (Are you thinking what I'm thinking?)
I've had my troubles with the show from the beginning, both viscerally and on a level of ... human presentation? but I can honestly say it's been a long, long time since a show has made my physically nauseous. Good job, TPTB?
weewarrior: (Are you thinking what I'm thinking?)
This is literally a work in progress since I've been stuck at the eve of one specific battle for months now, and have read two other books in the mean time. Brief spoilers, mostly of a historical nature, and some remarks about characters )

A little on the long side, and I really wish Nolan would get over his obsession with spoilers ), but otherwise, impressive. Also: Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy ftw!
weewarrior: (enthralling!)
It comes back, again and again, like a bad penny. (Does that bad penny idiom exist in English languages? Is it still in use? Random aside, sorry.) So, as I have new shows:

Comment with one of my fandoms, and I'll reply with:

01. The first character I first fell in love with
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't
04. The character I love that everyone else hates
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer
06. The character I would shag anytime
07. The character I'd want to be like
08. The character I'd slap
09. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

Please, hit me.

It was actually good this week despite the somewhat spoilery spoiler ). I think it was a combination of that character ), what that other character did ), and that third character's asset ). Oh, and the boys as spoilers ).
weewarrior: (there's dirty movies on tv!)
In outrageously sucky quality here.

Mildly spoilery observations, exclamation points and one case of capslock under the cut:
Bigfoot? Is he real, too? )
weewarrior: (waiting for the perfect moment)
Short VD primer: I started watching this as background noise for doing my laundry and for a long time my interest stayed on that level, although I very quickly learned to appreciate the great number of interesting and often quite powerful female characters both human and supernatural. Roughly around Episode 9, the show started bringing in new and interesting characters and several storylines that jumped and twisted and intertwined in unpredictable and largely entertaining ways and some time later I realized I'm no longer ironically turned on by its bad boy image watching this for cheap kicks but actually enjoying it on its own merits. It even changed my opinion of Ian Somerhalder's acting skills, although that admittedly took a while.

I do like almost all characters; the ones I care most about are Alaric, Anna, Bonnie, Caroline and Elena, but I'm proud to say that after 21 episodes, I've even managed to distinguish Matt, Tyler and Jeremy. This, I assure you, was no mean feat.
Some notes about last week's episode under the cut:

I do believe in killing the messenger. You know why? Because it sends a message. )

I literally can't decide whether I find this awesomely cheesy or cheesily horrible. I do know one thing, though, whoever decided photoshopping needed to be the go-to skill for TV promotional producers deserves to be showered in dung.

ETA: In contrast, I'm pretty sure I love the preview for this week's new Fringe episode.

Once again, spoilers for all aired episodes.
You know how the show loves its parallel structures, right? )

More or less an attempt to explain Jacob's bottle analogy. Spoilers for aired episodes )

weewarrior: (Prepared for everything)
I can't resist...

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?', 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?', 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

I promise I'll answer them this time?
weewarrior: (It's all very painful.)
Why on earth am I still watching this show? The storylines are pedestrian, full of clich├ęs and often painfully stupid, the characters make cardboards look lively and the PTB apparently thought the compelling element to copy of Lost is glacial pacing instead of an intriguing mythology and innovative storytelling techniques. There is precisely one character I like and she is apparently about to be hit by a potentially spoilery speculation. ) Seriously, not even Norrington is worth sitting through this.
