I saw this movie that Marvel made about pecs

May 13, 2011

I went to see this Thor thing all the nerds are talking about.

In conclusion, while Marvel may not be able to make a compelling romance plotline to save their life (I’m not convinced they’re actually trying either. At least not beyond feeding our collective expectation to see the superhero “get the girl” in the end.), as long as they keep feeding my eyeballs the highest-quality beefcakes, dreamboats and stone foxes clad in shimmering CGI, I will keep forking over my nerd dollars.

I have no idea what to expect from Avengers next summer, but I suspect I am going to require a very cold shower after watching it.

(Interestingly enough, the Marvel movie initiative has not yet led me to read a single Marvel comic. I guess I did watch an episode and a half of that Iron Man cartoon, but that was mostly because I liked how it looked like it was made in Illustrator, plus it came on right after The Last Airbender. Now if a fraction of the effort put into male fanservice was applied to pandering to the female fanbase…)

Marathoned Let the Right One In this week. Very consuming book. Don’t love it like the movie. Very fun in a crazy-making kind of way though.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

GR3D – Hazmat – The Drome – GripReality inc (c) 2009.

My pal Louis Silverstein just launched GR3D, the new website for his production company, GripReality Inc. This man is seriously talented, to the extent that kind of makes me ill with rampant jealousy. All sorts of beautiful camerawork, hillarious commercials, weird shit video stuff here, and tons more, including some videos and recordings of the younger Silverstein, Nolan’s band, Jolly Chimp. How did those two win in the gene pool so much?

never has unbridled passion been so aloof.

Okay I will not rag on this movie any further because I know I would have eaten it up if I were still thirteen. Still, I couldn’t help thinking that I would rather watch the high school movie that the heroine’s highly social, quirky, and generally upbeat group of friends were living out while she was busy having scowling anemic eyesex.
But I guess that would just be Buffy.
