shallowness: Five panels featuring pictures of different female characters based on my interests at the time. (Default)
On Tuesday, in the middle of all the horrible news, it was announced that Joss Whedon will be taking over directing duties on Justice League from Zach Snyder for tragic reasons. Obviously, one hopes that this helps a grieving family heal.

Wonder Woman (please be good! Not that I saw the show or read the comics, but as a woman who goes to see comic book movies, we're due one about a superheroine that's good) is occupying my brain more. But apparently the news about the merchandise isn't great.


Anyway, I’m watching Smallville season 5 for the first time on DVD. (I’ve been spoiled for a few big things on the show over the years. And the next DVD boxset I will go through will be a better show, but I’m watching it with much nostalgia for my experiences of the fandom for the first year or two. Quick recap: CHLOE.)

The colour palate is very striking, coming off the greys of metal, glass, stone and shadows of Person of Interest. I’m also rewatching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies right now, which has the blues and greys of the sea and brown and black of the ships, so the warm, bright, sun-kissed hues of Smallville, where everyone’s outfits are colour-coded, jumped out at me.

shallowness: Beautiful blue alien in front of colourful background (Zhaan Farscape wonders I've seen)
I watched a fair chunk of the Eurovision song contest last night, from Armenia to Cyprus, which is more than I've done for a while. I used to love it, but it got too big and thus too gruelling. I have caught glimpses of it since last posting in 2012 but gone are the days when I could sit through all the performances and the voting.

Trailers: a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean: this is the last one, honest which featured intriguing beasties and not enough Barbossa, but I think I’m bound to see it anyway. There was also a trailer for Spider-Man vs. Iron Man that left me underwhelmed, but conversely, I think I want to see Baby Driver (Edgar Wright mashes up The Fast and the Furious and Drive?) now.
shallowness: Jadzia smiling eyes closed text reads 'Hee!' (DS9 Jadzia is amused)
I caught up on the first two episodes for various reasons and watched the third live.

Next on the DVD pile is season 5 of Smallville. I know - I rewatched the season 4 finale the other daym which can be summed up by the punctuation marks '!?' and mostly not in a good way.
