So Saturday was amazing--met up with a bunch of Sherlock fans over at the Way Station--where I have never been, but always wanted to try out. Apparently it's less of a Doctor Who bar and more steampunk bar with a TARDIS bathroom. But it gets more press from the bathroom than anything steampunk. Anyway, I had a great time and hello to new people from that day! I hope I don't scare any of you away. Thanks to [ profile] apis_cerana for organizing it. It was fantastic from start to finish.

If anyone wants to learn more about me, there is a sticky post on my journal, and also my page. Have at 'em!

I got a virus or something from something I ate and was laid out most of Sunday for it. But then towards the nighttime I trekked over to [ profile] splits_thesky's place and we made Memorial Day into MIB weekend. We watched the first two movies, then some of the special features and then went to see MIB3 the next day. We were so well-versed in everything MIB that we were pretty excited. BUT ALSO they threw in some things about the lore from this companion book I have from the first movie and akfhjdskalfas. And every time I was like, "BUT NO, THIS IS WRONG DON'T SAY THAT," they'd say something that made sense with the other movies/cartoon/book again. And for as much as people were excited that they were shooting the movie in the Bronx, there was ONE LOCATION that I recognized ("Cosmic Lanes" because I only pass that place every day on the way to work). Everything else was like, Queens, the street outside the Apple SoHo temporary store, random Hollywood backlot from Simone and other movies, etc. The diner might've been the Pelham Bay Diner, but I haven't been inside so I couldn't say for sure.

Anyway, I loooove that movie. And it so made up for the second one. I enjoyed the second one. But this one felt more like a MIB movie. :3 I just wish Will Smith had done the song for it, because I love Pitbull in theory, but wtf is that track.

And then today I went to see Battleship with my sister. I like Michael Bay movies, generally. I'll always defend him because I like explosions and dumb action sometimes! But I was really bored during this one. I did enjoy the fact that the bombs were legit pegs that landed on the boat and that they had to resort to using a grid to fight the aliens. And bringing in the veterans. But the stakes weren't there, it was only their ship out there, I didn't care about any of the subplot characters (or the leads which might've been because I don't care for Kitsch or ASkars like the internet does), "dumb shit" (my nickname for the blonde kid with the frog) actually made it through, and the stinger scene was lame. Also I zoned out during two battle scenes, one of which was the final one so it felt like: "BOMBS ASLODE! ...Okay, medal time!" which would've given me whiplash if I wasn't slouched halfway down my seat wondering why this movie wasn't over a half-hour ago.

Funnily, I was wondering to myself why anyone cares about Kitsch (I assume it's because of FNL, but everyone from that show I cannot stand in future endeavors, so...), and The Covenant popped into my mind. And I was thinking, "Wow, that movie was such a bomb. I wonder what happened to those dudes from that movie. They were so poised to be action stars and NO ONE CARED. It was like, only Steven Strait got a maybe-ish career." Then I got home. Look up The Covenant. Some of the other dudes were Sebastian Stan, Chace Crawford and Taylor Kitsch. LOL WHOOPS. I mean, we got a nice Bucky out of Stan, but I honestly don't care for any of those dudes. I'm going to go have a Chris Evans marathon to cleanse my palette, now that I own, you know, even more of his movies than I did already.

Definitely! I am always up for meetups with like-minded people.

I was just thinking about Taylor Kitsch. Every time I see I picture of him, I think, 'who is that?' Then I realize it's him. I can't figure out why I can't recognize him; it's like he looks totally different to me in every picture.

He will always be on my bad side for accepting Gambit in Wolverine. I'll never see that movie, so maybe he was decent, idk. But he's always just .... there. I can't think of a role he played that was actually remarkable.
