I'VE JUST SEEN THE AVENGERS MOVIE. WHO WANTS TO TOUCH ME?

I SAID

WHO WANTS TO FUCKING TOUCH ME?

Allow me to summarise my feelings.

Waking up this morning:


In the queue to watch The Avengers:


While watching The Avengers:


After watching The Avengers:


It is the best movie I have ever seen on a cinema screen.

I have actually had to take a break 40 minutes into this movie because I'm sorry but wet Josh Hartnett and wet Gackt wrestling in mud

Guys

Wet Josh Hartnett and wet Gackt wrestling in mud

Oh, and Ron Perlman and Kevin McKidd are bad guys in it, and Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore are also in it.

And did I mention

WET

JOSH

HARNETT

AND

WET

GACKT

WRESTLING

MUD

Jesus Christ someone air out the flat because I am not just done, I am overdone, I am cremated

HNNNNNNGH

ERIK LENSHERR, CHARLES XAVIER, GET INSIDE OF ME. OR EACH OTHER. OR BOTH. ANY OF THOSE OPTIONS IS ACCEPTABLE.

P.S. I am totally with the Tumblrite who said Michael Fassbender's next movie should just be "Michael Fassbender wears nice suits and kills Nazis". I know I would watch it.

Although watching him kill Nazis while wearing his 300 "outfit" (I hesitate to call it actual clothing) would also hold a certain appeal.

ETA: A SPOILER - It's for one of the slashiest parts in the film and I would advise against clicking pre-movie watching because omg it's worth not being spoiled for. )

GUYS.

TOM HIDDLESTON (Loki in the new Thor movie) IS MY GOOD OMENS CROWLEY.

He is the Crowley that has sat in my head whenever I've read that book. To a tee. He could not be more perfect if you slapped yellow contacts on him and put him in snakeskin boots. At least, presumably they would be boots.



IT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF FRIGHTENING. I feel a bit like I accidentally dreamed him up.

And he's intelligent, and ohgodthevoicethevoiceohgod.



P.S. Thor is fucking amazing. It's like someone mated a Shakespeare play with a computer made of solid gold and the baby gestated in a Norse god. Probably Loki. With a cast of people who are all pretty-and-talented or just-talented. Nommmmmm.

This is a long, weird post. Just warning you all. Grab a cup of tea and a biscuit <3.

First off, a rec for one of the best things ever, and the inspiration for this post:

Harbor by [personal profile] irisbleufic; John/Sherlock, R/light NC17; sequel to Drowning Man, which was also fabulous.

This is the best story I have read in months. Possibly years. Your mileage may vary, everyone has different tastes, but I have never been happier with the use of emotion in a fic that I can recall - as I said, definitely not in months, and possibly not in years. And I read and adore (and I do mean adore) a lot of fic.

But there's a very real reason for this one, and it's weird and bizarre but true; it's because it's how I imagine (excepting for the specific circumstances, I'm scarcely a war veteran Doctor or a sociopathic consultant detective) my love story will finally go, should it happen, because I've almost been there before, with tensions lining up just right - unfortunately, it's yet to happen with someone I'm both attracted to and love as a person rather than an idea. It's that feeling of tensions lining up that [personal profile] irisbleufic absolutely nails, spot on. I hope someday I find the Sherlock to my John, or the John to my Sherlock.

Bizarrely, and completely unintentionally, that story just gave me a boost in my faith in love and eventually finding it, at a time when I've rarely needed it more. It's something where I can't really thank the author enough - or at all, because again, it was unintentional! Just a side-effect, one of those curious ones acting as proof that art and prose is always worthwhile because you can never, ever predict the effect one image or one set of words will have on each indivdual member of an audience.

~ ~ ~ Wavy lines time, it's a flashback to my not-quite-romances! )

So, yes; the long ramble and whole point to the post is this; sometimes I get a little lonely, and I wonder if I'll ever fall in love. If I'll ever know that feeling of wanting to be with someone, and knowing they want to be with me, and waiting for one of us to find the moment to act on it, and this time it not end in my realising I'm basically straight/am not in love with them, just desperately attracted to them/missing out on the chance to act.

And this fic gives me hope, really, really, silly hope, that someday all the waiting will be worthwhile. Benedict Cumberbatch is about nine years older than me, Martin Freeman about 14 ;), and if I have to wait nine years for my John or fourteen years for my Sherlock - well, damnit, it'll be worth the wait <3. Hell, I'm even looking forward to it again.

FUCK. YES.

[my mum took me, my sis, my l'il brother and herself to see it tonight at 8.50pm as a cheer-up surprise for us all :D, and for all that I'm up at 6am and planned on having an early night tonight, I REGRET NOTHING. Or, indeed, JE NE REGRETTE RIEN)

Dear Christopher Nolan,

You may not be my type, but right now I need you inside me.

(Also, damn Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I remember having a crush on you when I was little and you have grown up FINE. You may join in on the being inside me shenanigans. In fact, I encourage it.)

FILM. OF. THE. DECADE.

Guys, seriously, you know how everyone's going on about this film? If you haven't seen it, make time to. It's not world-changing cinema but good God it's the best crafted thing I've seen in years. There were moments where my jaw was literally hanging open. I am awed by how perfectly pulled off the film was. There are some brief moments of repetition but they work inside the dreamscape and the whole sequence revolving around Joseph G-L's character in the middle of the movie is absolutely stunning.

I refuse to say anything more about it because I walked into that movie not knowing the plot and having a movie that respects you as an audience without deliberately confusing you to the point of not knowing what's going on is a blessing everyone should enjoy. It was so, so, so good.

I won't be fandoming this one. It's just. It's in a class of its own.

ETA: Spoilers in the comments to this post.

GO WATCH ROBIN HOOD. NOW.

No, seriously, I mean it. Do not read my review until you've seen the movie. I want you to go see it with all your current thoughts and feelings about the movie, all your hesitance, all your wariness. I want you to go in not expecting to feel about this movie the way I do now.

I mean it. Watch the movie, THEN feel free to click this. Oh man, it isn't so much a review as a recap of everything I remember about the movie. Spoilers ahoy. )
