Wonder Woman movie thoughts

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Totally non-spoilery review coming up! 1. Totally awesome. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen. Gal Gadot was amazing. 11/10 would watch again. 2. Surely I was not the only one to walk out of the theater thinking, ‘Was that Remus Lupin?’ And yes, yes it was. David Thewlis (Sir Patrick in Wonder Woman) also […]

A Very Important List

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

I love reading the wikipedia pages of comic book characters, because they present the most wild storylines in such a matter-of-fact way. And so… some Wonder Woman info gleaned from wikipedia, presented entirely without context: 1. Wonder Woman was capable of bench pressing 15,000 pounds. 2. Wonder Woman’s Amazon training gave her limited telepathy, profound […]

You know what’s great about Wonder Woman’s superhero name? Truth in advertising. *Wonder Woman: is she a wonder? yes! is she a woman? also yes! a+ name, 100% score *Batman: is he a bat? no! is he a man? yes. 50% score. *Superman: is he super? a matter of debate. is he a man? not […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, April 28th, 2017

tell all the truth (but tell it slant), by susiecarter “It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often? Doesn’t help as much […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, August 26th, 2016

versus, by Unpretty Because I am ALL ABOUT Team Justice League calling each other on the phone and heckling Bruce about things. Also, this fic has a duckling in it. “Wonder Woman!” Superman said into his phone, an answer and a greeting. “Batman found a baby bird. No, a literal baby bird this time. Yeah. […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, September 11th, 2015

When I first saw this fic, I mostly started it because I was intensely curious how 17000 words of G-rated Darcy Lewis/Bruce Wayne soulmate fic (that included Age of Ultron spoilers!) could possibly play out. And I’m glad I did! (Full disclosure: I probably would have rated this fic a T.) Like a Flower Growing […]

movie review: The Dark Knight Rises

Friday, February 1st, 2013

I mostly knew that this movie was part 3 of 3 (or more, whatever), but I didn’t figure not seeing part 2 would make much difference. Turns out it sort of did? Though I actually think that not knowing what people were talking about made me enjoy the movie more than I would have otherwise. […]

Batman movie spoilers from wikipedia

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (I have not) OR READ THE WIKIPEDIA PAGE (I have) So…. There were really only two factors on the ‘yes, I should see this movie’ side of things (Selina Kyle and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Blake, a cop), so I read the wikipedia entry […]

Fic Rec ‘O the Day

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

(My pre-Yuletide fic rec. I’m attempting to get this, along with a couple other projects, all tidied up before true Yuletide madness hits.) Scions, by winterlive An AU version of DCU comics — Tim is Robin, Kon is Lex’s son and heir. They’re both rising business stars who tangle over a biotech acquisition (which happens […]
