Random rant @self

May 5th, 2009 (05:51 pm)

Okay, so this is officially the end of the world as we know it. If you had told me a year ago that I would be making a Harry Potter icon, I would have laughed and been offended, almost.

It isn't funny anymore, though.

I blame it all on The Order of the Phoenix; it was a damn good movie in a series I don't have much passion for. And ever since I saw it twice, and decided to finally give Harry Potter an actual chance... it's been getting worse.

*screams silently*

Some things haven't changed; I still hate Harry as a character, most of the time. He's like this... Harry Sue. And I don't much care for Ron and Hermione, although Emma Watson is getting prettier and prettier each year... Of course, when Harry started to get angsty in the 5th movie, I had to like him a lot more, right?

Anyway, I'm really starting to like the world of Harry Potter. And I like the Weasley twins. And Sirius& Lupin (major canon-pairing there, really... OTP...). And the Malfoys (although Draco is made of stupid, and that's such a shame). And Snape; he is love - although at times also made of resentful stupid, no idea why... And as you can see from the icon, I think Luna is beyond cute! The way she talks, as if she's completely out of it somehow... but not. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.

Ok, so this post has no point, really... other than me berating myself for jumping to this wagon I swore I would avoid at all costs. (And okay, the first two books are pretty silly too. Loved the third - although it's far from perfect. Started the fourth a while ago... and am all hyped about the next movie hitting cinemas in a couple of months.)

Oh my god save me... why couldn't X-Men Origins: Wolverine be any better?! I would have much more preferred falling into an obsession with that fandom...again... *shakes head at self*

*waves Sirius/Lupin banner like a white flag* :p Can’t be helped.

Why couldn't X-Men Origins: Wolverine be any better?!

Because there was not enough Remy. *shakes fist at* Srsly, a whole 120 minutes of Remy vs Logan fighting would have made my year… wouldn’t have been particularly canon-compliant (heh, like that seems to matter to them?!) but I think I could have forgiven them…maybe…

(can I ask why you didn’t like it?)

Milo - Don't mess... Don't meddle...

You know, I didn't really dig the actor who was chosen to play Remy. But that wasn't the biggest issue.

I disliked the movie because the plot was a little jumpy. Sure, I did give it 3 and a half stars... but altogether, I was disappointed. There were a lot of characters, but none of them was give time to actually BE there - other than Wolvie and Creed.

Like Dominic Monaghan's character, and Gambit... and Cyclops! OMG WTF was that all about... I was expecting something nice Scott-related (I'm a Cyclops fangirl), but he isn't really even from that time, that's NOT how he and Professor met, and... In general, what I am thinking as the real X-Men storyline wasn't what they showed in that movie. They made their own version, and didn't make justice with it.

Lol, so, no: no great love from me to the makers of the movie. I hope the Origins with Magneto will be better if they ever get it done...

LMAO; hopefully that made a little sense...?
