movie rewatch: Live Free or Die Hard

Monday, July 9th, 2018

For a movie that came out in 2007, the tech and plot hold up surprisingly well in 2018. (I mean, in the sense that I had no idea what computers were capable of in 2007, and I still don’t today.) And it completes my 4th of July movie viewing! 1. The same actress who played […]

Movie Review: Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Best Moments: 1. Benji yelling at Ethan on his screen, even though Ethan can’t hear him. (“Go to the extraction point!”) 2. Ethan dumping the team in a fit of pique, and the three of them sitting around drinking and talking. (Just saying, that is not what I think of as the hallmark of a […]

Some thoughts from the day, for whatever they’re worth. 1. Some nice multifandom recs over at umbrellashade. (Plus, great name!) “And under the umbrella’s shade we will meet.” 2. Still getting a happy feeling every time I scroll past the link to National Pastime, by dsudis, on my April page. (A Live Free or Die […]

I was just talking with starandrea about my last post, and I told her that it was sort of a lie that I had never thought about slashing people in “Live Free or Die Hard,” because I watch movies now with an eye towards fanfic, and I like to read fanfic about relationships — het, […]

New year, new fandom

Monday, December 31st, 2007

It’s not 2008 yet where I live, but in some places it is, so here we go. I was over at Speranza’s livejournal the other day, and found her links to her Yuletide stories.
