Methinks Someone Is Into Comic Books

And that someone is Megan Fox. She may be playing the fabulous Jennifer Walters in the new She-Hulk movie (awesome). She’s also set to play Aspen in the Fathom movie (more awesome). She’s currently filming in the Jonah Hex movie (squee). And then there’s her ongoing role in the Transformers movies…

This is one of many reasons why she is so insanely hot.


Zac Efron, Why Must You Be So Hot? And I Can’t Believe I Just Wrote That

In Celebrities, Film on April 11, 2009 at 1:57 pm

17 Again receives an average of 6.2/10 from Rotten Tomatoes.

I’d just like to make some things clear: 1) I HAVE NEVER WATCHED HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL AND I NEVER, EVER, WILL. 2) I think Zac Efron is so very pretty. 3) Admitting to #2 makes me feel compelled to commit seppuku.

So… Ugh- I am actually having a hard time writing this. My brain knows it’s wrong.

I went to see the film yesterday with my friends (I couldn’t muster up enough courage to go alone) and at the end, I was asked why I wanted to see it/why was I cringing so badly now that the lights were back on. I physically could not finish the sentence: “I like Zac Efron.”

It came out sorta like this: “I like Zac Efra-Eflo-Efruuhh- Zac Efuck it, I can’t even say it right.”

Anyway, I am literally twitching as I write this so I’ll make it quick: I liked the movie, I will be buying the DVD, I would recommend going to watch it. That is all. Leave me alone. No, I am not going to watch it again. I won’t!

This Is Turning Out Suspiciously Like DC’s ‘Darkest Night’ Series…

But who the fuck cares- it’s Captain America! The Steve Rogers version! The best version! Though in all honestly, all the black would suggest something like an evil clone or dark magic, a lot of typical Marvel fan torture and then Steve Rogers appearing deus ex machina style in the last two issues or something, giving Iron Man a heart attack and causing a few volumes of angst for the newly resurrected Cap.

You know it will happen.

But seriously, Marvel, what the fuck, you cannot just give us a fucking star and a date– even DC’s done better than that! Everyone knows what that star means, so there’s no mystery, and everyone knows that July is 87 days away and no, I’m not counting, shut up, so all this is going to do is drive me up the wall  while waiting. But I won’t mind because any Steve Rogers is better than no Steve Rogers.

Also, a little more effort with the art wouldn’t have been a bad thing.

As If I Didn’t Love Robert Downey Jr. Enough…

Go look at the new Sherlock Holmes movie poster. He’s so awesome.

Uggh, Give Me A Minute To Compose Myself

Geoff Johns, my personal Jesus, has a new blog. Flash: Rebirth #1 was released yesterday/today, bringing Barry Allen, my favourite Flash (tied with his grandson), back into mainstream continuity like Johns did for Hal Jordan, my favourite Green Lantern. At this point, I would take a bullet for this man.

I am actually torn- do I wait for the graphic novel? Or do I get my ass to Covent Garden every month from now till August to buy single issues? I’m chronically lazy, of course, and entirely too busy from now till August to get my ass anywhere that requires an hour long tube journey, so I’ll probably read it on the Internet and pre-order the graphic novel. Because I only ever buy graphic novels, but this– I could totally break that rule for this storyline. I’d buy the graphic novel regardless of owning the single issues anyway, but still… Argh. Indecision.

Sorry about that. I just- it’s Hal Jordan. I. LOVE. HAL. JORDAN. I am unrepentant, I am maniacal. I love that fictional man. And Chris Pine. AUYSJHSDGAGV. VERY MUCH YES. I don’t give a damn about acting ability, and DC is never going to get it right anyway- so I’ll just enjoy the hotness. Chris Pine is just sooooo pretty…

Don’t look at me like that. I’m a 17-year-old girl. I’m allowed to just scream and flail like that in the middle of the night because Chris Pine may be playing Hal-freaking-Jordan. OMG, this is amazing. I hope it’s true.

Found that completely by accident, as well- literally straight after I posted the last entry. I’m quite lucky. Or unlucky, as I am likely to obsess now.

Also: who is freaking stoked about the Star Trek movie? MEMEMEME. I’ve never managed to sit through an entire episode of Star Trek. But I’m going to force myself to watch at least one before the movie comes out. Something good.
