You guys. There are lady BFFS. In a comic book movie. WHAT IS GOING ON. Oh and at least one of them appears to be awesome.

I actually started reading Thor recently, just to see what the craic was. It's good! Of course, I don't actually give a damn about Thor in the slightest, but I love everyone else, especially Loki and Volstagg.

I spent the weekend in Derbyshire with a bunch of runners. I used to say runners were all lightweights. They are only MOSTLY lightweights. Sometimes they are sneaky and get everyone else drunk and make them spill who they have crushes on and then say they can do something about that and ARGH. Also, Derbyshire is MADE OF MUD. PAST MY ANKLES. I seriously had to use the powerwasher to clean my trainers.

Release the Drop Bears!

Oh my God how have I lived without Nextwave in my life until now? Also anyone ever saying anything nice about Cap is getting this:

So. Many. Comics. I'm reading Ms. Marvel right now because the guy who wrote it did the Sinister Spider-Man miniseries that I loved. I've been rly rly pleased with it so far! It actually did a good job of Civil War (and the fact that the only convincing Pro-Reg argument I've ever seen was made by DEADPOOL tells you everything you need to know about Civil War. I love Wade and that's why I abuse him) and I love the entire supporting cast. Who are mostly also ladies!

I've also been reading a bunch of Fred Van Lente comics because I loved his Taskmaster miniseries. Seriously, if they erase the Apache main characters from the film version of Cowboys and Aliens I am going to pitch a fucking fit. GO READ COWBOYS AND ALIENS. IT'S GOOD.

Also I wrote some Haven fic for yuletide.

I don't even care that Doctor Who was bad. I haven't lol'd so hard in ages. MILLIONS OF MASTERS AND DOCTORDONNA :DDDDDDDDDDD

Also, if you like comics please read this.


My life is awesome.

Tonight in training we learned how to do this

to the other person when you're both going for a high ball. I love football :D

We won our football match yesterday! Still not entirely sure what happened there. We've never actually won a match before.

Smokin' Aces is the kind of film that's more fun when you imagine the actors are playng the characters you associate them with, rather than the characters in the film. Keamy from Lost and new Kirk kill Daredevil! Richard from Lost kills Jack. God, I love that bit. Random guys from gangsters films are FBI agents! Deadpool cries really prettily!

Speaking of Ryan Reynolds, he is fast becoming my favourite person ever. This is what he had to say about making a Deadpool film:

"Look, I'm into any role in which I get to kick Captain America in the nuts,"

There's so much to do with a movie like this, so much you can do, and I'm just trying to figure out a way to structure all of those things around kicking Captain America in the nuts.

Joe Kelly interview


Now that Deadpool is popping up and he's all popular, I've been asked to do a couple things, and I think it'll happen.



I read so many comics this weekend

I love Dark Avengers. They're sort of like if Marvel did Secret Six (although as much as I love Bendis, he's no Gail Simone). Daredevil Noir is like NOIRNOIRNOIRNOIRNOIRNOIRNOIRNOIR which, you know, it would have to be. Deadpool Suicide Kings looks pretty awesome, but the highlight was this from Thunderbolts:

You guys must be sick of football by now

Yesterday I went to the park with my dad to get a bit of sneaky practice in, and found half the team doing the same thing. So, impromptu dad-led practice!

The thing I most looked forward to about playing football rather than hurling was no more broken fingers from bad blocking! Yay!

damnit )

I'm not very good at the high catch. I didn't post this yesterday because I didn't think you'd believe me :( Also, I was too busy getting a hold of a leaked film >:)

More Deadpool

Big version here.

Hey, does anyone know some good things to get my fitness up? I just played football for 2 1/2 hours and I was knackered by the end. Well, by the middle, really. Note: I hate running.


Okay so I saw Watchmen again

shadowkitty: side_of_zen (C:)
I know, but my bf loves superhero movies, despite never reading comics. He has agreed to read Watchmen now, though!

Things which are a bad idea:

  • Seeing Watchmen with someone who has just talked to his father for the first time ever (srsly, the guy called up to complain about his ex-wife, who he has not seen for twenty-five years. Who the fuck does that?)

  • Seeing Watchmen with an epic Alexander the Great fanboy.

Anyway, look what I noticed the second time!

hugebigfuckoff picture )

Oh Zach Snyder. I hate you a little less now.

Afterwards I asked my bf what he thought of it: *blank look* *loooooooong pause* "I think that went over my head a bit."

Except he keeps singing Hallelujah at really inappropriate times >:(


Protip: get drunk before seeing Watchmen

I genuinely do not have the mental distance to be able to tell if that was a good film or not. The comic is too big an influence on me. It was a pretty decent adaptation, even though Zach Synder does this thing with slo-mo and close ups that makes sex and violence more graphic and I really hate it. Seriously, if you cut that shit out you could have fit the corner people in. Someone earlier was saying there was too much blood before the climax and too little blood during and I totally agree.

So we had a bit of alcohol before seeing it. We would have had some more during the film only the checkout lady decided I didn't look 18 and would let me buy anything. I'm twenty fucking five, lady! I think the entire audience hated us because we burst out laughing whenever there was a mysterious hobo in the back of the shot, and basically every single time Jeffrey Dean Morgan was on sceen. Seriously, it must have been fucking distracting. Eventually they all joined in, just in time. You guys lied to me! The sex scene is a work of comic genius! I fucking cried laughing. I will never again be able to listen to Hallelujah without laughing.


It's just me, isn't it?

The bit in Lost where spoiler ) reminded me so much of these two pages of the Secret Six mini series.

oh, ragdoll )


Football kicked my ass

I am so tired. So very tired. And I can't kick pass out of my hand properly. I keep hitting the ceiling. It only needs to go about four feet high, self :(

Is anyone up for going to see Watchmen on Tuesday night at the Finchley road Vue?

Finally (yay disjointed posts) holy shit look at Deadpool. Yes please :9


World, what is wrong with you?

There is one thing that horrifies me more than the Frank 'whores whores whores' Miller Batman script.

It was going to be directed by Darren Aronofsky. Jesus fucking Christ, why don't you just cut out the middle man and tap directly into my nightmares?

BRB dropping a nuke.

I've been reading Ultimate Spider-Man and watching Sarah Connor Chronicles. They are both made of awesome. But who would win in a fight, Sarah Connor or Ultimate Aunt May?


shadowkitty: *fwoomph* (Deadpool)
Except to ask who the fuck is that and why is his face too big for his head?

Anyway, I read New Avengers. I've been avoiding it, because I hate Captain America. No, I really do. He sucks. I really enjoyed it! And Secret Invasion, which I was expecting to hate. Isn't Ms Marvel awesome? I never read anything with her in it before. And Jessica Drew! I hope actual!Jessica gets a spot on an Avengers team now. And Jessica Jones. To tell the truth I only read it for her.

These are my two favourite pages from anything ever. Five years later, and i still burst out laughing whenever I read them.

context: Deadpool is recovering from a massive brain injury )


Shit load of comics for you!

I love Daredevil. Have done for years, when [ profile] buzzylittleb threw a copy at my head (I get introduced to the best stuff like that).

Okay, Matt Murdock was blinded as a child by some freaky chemicals that enhanced all his other senses. Now he's a lawyer who fights crime!

It started with Stan Lee, of course. The art in the first four issues was done by Joe Orlando, who got a mention in Watchmen. Basically it's really cute and funny. In 2001 Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale did their own version of this origin story in Daredevil:Yellow. If the art looks familiar, that's because it is.

Lots of pictures )
