And it's slowly dawned on me this morning that I could have set the alarm for half and hour later.
shallowness: HP films' Minerva reads the Daily Prophet (Minerva reads)
I went to see Beauty and the Beast (2016) with baggage - I saw the original movie at an impressionable age, adore it and used to have a Belle icon on my lj (I had an OUAT!Belle icon too, for that matter). It felt as though most of the rest of the audience hadn't been born when the first film came out, although I'm sure they grew up with it, or Emma Watson as Belle.

To cheer myself up (because of a cloud that has been blown away, but I thought making myself laugh would be a good thing) I've been rewatching selected episodes of Community over the past week. It’s something I’ve been planning to do since seeing The Martian, actually, and it was fun, because there were things I’d forgotten (many of the tags, some of the darkness) and I’ve been chuckling about various things and seeing representations of dalmations everywhere and then that Childish Gambino song where he’s doing a falsetto was playing when I was out having a coffee...

The episodes i watched were:Read more... )

I scoffed too when they said Logan was the Wolverine movie ‘the fans’ have been waiting for – hasn’t Jackman dutifully said that before all the previous movies, which I’ve seen? Wolverine: Origins was a mistake and The Wolverine was dull, and I didn’t rewatch either before going to see this film. Yes, I saw the trailer, but I couldn’t believe that the film would live up to it, didn’t want to believe the star ratings for the reviews, although I knew I’d go to see it. But…it’s good. It’s easily the best Wolverine standalone film, it captures and references a lot of what made the character the breakout star of the movie franchise from when he was introduced, and makes the most of its 15 certificate, though I have no idea what timeline it fits in, mind!

I hope my next post will be a review of Logan.

I half-intended to post a long overdue linkspam yesterday afternoon, but got sucked into watching a repeat of the final parts of the 1983 adaptation of Mansfield Park. Read more... )

TV catch-up

shallowness: Five panels featuring pictures of different female characters based on my interests at the time. (shallowness heroines)
Suits 6.15 Quid Pro Quo

My immediate thought after watching this ep on catch-up was: I don’t have any coherent thoughts about this…

But I’ll try! Read more... )
shallowness: John Reese and Zoe Morgan looking at a screen (POI Zoe and John at work)
Over twenty months ago, I was happily watching the start of season 3 of PoI as it aired on the telly, when it went on a break and I didn’t realise it had come back until after too many episodes had been shown for me to catch up. I decided to buy the DVD, which I eventually did and I started rewatching the show over Christmas. I then had a month and a half where I didn’t have access to the DVDs, but that has been resolved and I’ve now rewatched the first eight episodes of the season. From here on in, it’ll be all new to me, give or take a couple of spoilers – it’s amusing that five (or one of its channels) is now on to airing the fifth season.

Also, I saw Hidden Figures over the weekend, I was thoroughly entertained and rated the script highly for what it managed to do. Great to see Taraji P. Henson lap up the role.

And now for some fic recs, all Suits (with the disclaimer that I have limited knowledge of canon, so I have no idea what's canon, fanon etc).

I watched this one live.

So, I seem to have settled down to this season even though some of the things that irritated me are still around. I suppose that I like eye-rolling (as well as being invested in certain characters), for I didn't seriously contemplate watching SS-GB over this, although I might catch up with that yet.

And then there was a double-bill of B99 to watch.

The continuity announcer said the show was on 'half term' - but I'm now confused as to whether that means a week off or more. After the last two weeks, I wish E4 had held back airing the season until it could air it in full uniterrupted.

By the by, The Lego Batman Movie is the Batman movie we need right now – it’s very, very funny.

But the trailer for the next episode of Agents of SHIELD just makes me want them to get all this out of their system soon.

I then caught up with Suits 6.12 The Painting
