Suicide Squad

   I saw the film Thursday night, and well, I was just kinda "meh" about it. Now, I don't think it was quite the mess that the critics touted it to be, but it definitely wasn't outstanding. Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Will Smith were beyond amazing in their respective roles, but everyone else just fell kinda flat. The last hour was probably the best. As for the Joker, I sincerely hope that Jared Leto is on a sabbatical to Antartica or something and is unable to film the sequel bc he was just awful, nails on chalkboard awful.

  Maybe I'm biased and spoiled, as a Marvel fan. Most of their films follow a set pattern, with resolution at the end. Also, Civil War was rich in character development and introduction. SS, not so much. Some article say that Suicide Squad was shortchanged by Batman vs Superman. IDK, as I haven't seen that film and really have no desire to. I will watch Wonder Woman and will have to decide about the Justice League project.  Guess my loyalties to the MCU run a little too deep. 'sigh'

Civil War

          I have two tix in my possession for Cap 3, at our local mom n pop cinema, tomorrow night. I seriously cannot wait. 'bouces excitedly' And, I took Friday off from work. 'Cuz you know I will probably be incoherant afterwards. LOL

        FYI, if you don't see the movie for a few days, don't worry about spoilers. I'm not even going to post a reaction, as I'm so disgusted by the level of inconsideration of others who've seen it already. Why these people couldn't post this stuff privately, I'll never know. But, I guess that shows the level of maturity when it comes to some fans. 'sighs'

:(

  Haven't posted much, as RL continues to get drearier and drearier. 'sigh'

  I'm still waiting to see Civil War, as the press tour has begun in earnest. Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan have been bringing the pretty with their respective photo spreads. Foreign release dates have been announced, as well as cast appearances. Stateside, Chris is supposed to have a new CW clip at the MTV movie awards(might have to miss the Fear the Walking Dead premiere that night), and the Team Cap cast will be on Jimmy Kimmel the following night. So, the wait is almost over. :)

 I did not see Batman vs Superman. I may if I can find a decent copy on the Net or just wait and Red Box it. Most of the ppl on here, Tumblr, and Twitter were unanimous in saying that Diana stole the show and the rest was just plain boring. So I can wait. I remember that I was excited about Fantastic Four, which was pannned by everyone, critics and fans alike. I finally watched it last month and totally agree.

Finally, The Walking Dead wraps up tomorrow night with a 90 minute show. Basically, Negan's coming, and he will change the group forever. If you read the comics or couldn't avoid  spoilers this week, you know that death will happen, courtesy of Lucille. I have not listened to the leaked audio clip that AMC is freaking out over, but I read an alleged transcipt. (If you look hard enough, there may be a copy floating somewhere, as nothing truly disappears from the Internet). You really don't know who it will be, but the dialogue was gut wrenching to read. I'm very anxious about this episode. I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan, his voice and old Hollywood looks. But, this might be a little bit more than I bargained for. LOL

Team Cap!!!!!!

Well, this was a life ruiner.  Watched it 2X already in two hours. 'sigh' One last thing, not digging Spider Fetus, at all. I can forgive Tony or the others for taking that shield but not this kid.  Nope!

Civil War stuff


 New article out today, from Comicbook.com. Seems that viewers of early screenings of CACW are raving about the film, praising the continuity from the The Winter Soldier til now,  Spidey's intro, the fast pace action etc. But, then the article goes on to say that the third act of the movie is like an "emotional horror movie".  WTF???!!! As much as I desperately want to to see CW, it's things like this gives me so much anxiety. 'sigh'

Random fannish things


 I watched the X-Files finale last night. And, after a pretty good buildup over the last few eps, I was kinda underwhelmed and bored. I won't drop any spoilers but it just didn't feel like a finale but more of a Part 1 type ep. 'sigh'

As for shows that didn't disappoint, The Walking Dead hit it out of the freaking park Sunday night. I'm sure if you've been on Twitter or Tumblr, you're spoiled as hell, but it was an amazing ep. Not just for shippers, but everyday fans of the show.would enjoy it too. I feel like this ep was just a respite though, as Neegan looms in the future.

Lots of Civil War goodies are dropping, as the press tour begins today. The cast is supposed to be on ET tonight, with a rumored trailer. Also, the April Empire issue is full of stills, interviews, and vague details that are guaranteed to thrill and plague Cap/Marvel fans til May.

Marvel is a life ruiner!



So, I had good intentions to watch the Super Bowl and cheer on the SO's Carolina Panthers. Then, the following happened, and it all went to hell.

I haven't been the same since. Bucky!!!!!!!! 'sobs'
I saw on Twitter where Marvel and Coke will be featuring footage of Civil War as part of the new promo. It will probably be some of the part of the trailer released in November, not new footage. I won't argue with it, but I do hope that it's got Bucky or Sam in it, at least. Gotta feeling that Stark will be front and center, though. 'sigh'

And what's up with putting the Hulk on a Coke can instead of Bucky, for the new promotion???!!! Bucky's like a main in the damn thing. Bruce isn't even slated to appear. I don't buy that crap about Hulk being more well known. Bucky Barnes/TWS merchandise is almost non-existant, and what does exist is overpriced and hard to find because of the high demand. Fans are thirsty for it. Marvel needs to step up and produce the merch. 'grumbles' Besides, I noticed, this past Christmas, that Iron Man and Hulk toys didn't sell in my Walmart and local deparment stores. Captain America and Thor merch flew off the shelf. Kinda shows who the fans really like. But, then that's similar to the Rey vs. Kylo debacle from Star Wars. But then I just don't have enough time to waste ranting about that stupidity. 'sips tea'

Jan. 23rd, 2016

It's been awhile since I last posted. Life just moves so fast, ya know? We had a minor ice/snow thingy, from Jonas. Yesterday was a little dicey, as I had to work. Admin staff were on a 2 hour delay, so I got to the office at 10 a.m. But, sleet began falling heavily about 11 so I left ,as I have 30 minute commute. I'm a Southern girl, and we do not know how to drive in this mess. LOL But, I got home safely, with o problems. We're in the melting stage today.

Not much to tell fandom wise. Agent Carter returned this past week. I don't feel that it is as good as last season, but I was pretty satisfied. Angie isn't on the show anymore, which is disappointing. But, I liked Peggy's new LI, a cute nerd who seems to have gotten killed but I'm not sure. Peggy was definitely interested. The Marvel aspect came in with the aforementioned connections to Dr. Strange, with Dark Matter. The SO and I thought that it looked more like the stuff from Thor 2, but whatever. There were more mentions of the Black Widow program and the pre-Hydra baddies. I'm pretty excited about it, on the whole.

More rumors about deaths in Civil War which make me more nervous. I enjoyed the 75th Anniversary Captain America special, that aired Tuesday night. I just feel like there might have been some foreshadowing. 'sigh' Seb Stan posted on his IG that he may cutting the Hair soon. So, I guess reshoots may already be filmed. I'm not sure when Infinity War filming starts. He has a recurring role on a Showtime series booked, but I've read that since it's set in the 70's, Seb could keep the shag. Anyways, I can't wait til I can see the film.

Trailer overload


 Ok, so I'm trying extemely hard not to watch the Cap 3 trailer too many times, before I go see Star Wars next month. Yeah, I'm failing miserably. 'sigh' At this rate, my views of the trailer will equal my viewings of the TWS. As for that number, we just won't talk about that. 'shrugs' LOL
