I am on a roll; another Marvel movie seen on opening weekend. And Captain America is quite awesome!
I think they did very well in keeping the main continuity version of Steve's personality even while the story/atmosphere is more influenced by the Ultimate universe comics.
And mmm, Howard Stark is almost as fun as Tony Stark. Am a little "worried", in a fandom-ish sense, at Howard's fondness for Steve in the end; could bring up some uncomfortable 'like-father, like-son' romance stories.

You would think, that being out of school would mean I had more free time to read and play and write. You would think, but instead I've been kept busy looking for a 'real' job and doing lots of house cleaning and babysitting in the meantime. Virtual spring cleaning too, cleared out one e-mail from 650 messages to 60.

Have still managed to have the time to see both "Thor" and "X-men: First Class" their opening weekends and was pleasantly surprised that both were better than I was expecting.

And I want this so bad:    http://cubiclebot.com/computers/get-your-own-steampunk-laptop/  . Gorgeous.

Went with Dad to see 'Paul' for his birthday, and we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Seth Rogen was much better as the voice of Paul than he was in his acting role in 'The Green Hornet'.

They finally fixed the projector on Monday, and I finally got to see Tangled! It was my first 3D movie, and I really don't get what the fuss is all about. The added depth for outside scenery and the detail is impressive, but when the characters are moving they look jerky, like those little hologram cards. The movie itself was beautiful and fun and I love it.

Another movie that I love, is Megamind. I had only a passing interest in it when I first saw a trailer for it, but browsing on DevianArt I saw some art and read some journals that had me interested. So last night I took Dad to see it before it left the town theater, and it is awesome and funny and touching all at once.

Nothing tops how my week started! On Sunday we went to the Star Trek display at the Aerospace Museum! Sadly, they didn't allow photography, after I went to all the trouble of borrowing a camera. But it was awesome anyway. There were information plaques and costumes and props AND... Not only the set piece of a hallway from TNG, but a reconstruction of TOS' bridge where I got my picture taken in the Captain's chair!

Monday I scrambled to complete my Mass Media project and finished with ten minutes to spare to catch the bus. When I got home I started baking for...

The breakfast potluck in my archery class on Tuesday. We were so busy eating and talking with everyone that we didn't even shoot.

Thank goodness my teachers are sensible and gave us Wednesday off even though the school system didn't (we were the only school in our county that wasn't off for the whole week. Why?). Grannie and Papa came up to visit me and we went to see Tangled; I've never seen a movie on opening day and I'd been planning on this for a month. BUT, the stupid digital projector wouldn't work! They were kind enough to give us two ticket passes to make it up, but still very frustrating.

Thursday was Thanksgiving. Family and great food, what more could I want?

Friday we ran errands in the morning, moved furniture in the afternoon, went and put up the grandparent's lights and ran more errands in the evening.

Today we are relaxing and doing house chores, and then this evening we are going to a Christmas program done by three generations of the family that owns half our neighborhood.

I went to one at the local movie theater last night, anyway. Although, neither was actually Rocky Horror. "The Princess Bride" at 6:00, a twenty minute break getting chocolate from the candy store two blocks away, and then "Jurassic Park". The audience for "Jurassic" was only a little bit bigger, but there was a lot more excited energy for it, and even a few people in costume - Doctor Grant, Doctor Malcolm and John Hammond. I hope they show the original Star Wars someday, I'm sure it would be four times as fun.
Got home late, had a quick shower and fell into bed, then had to get up early this morning to go to the airport to fetch Sister home from visiting her boyfriend in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm actually posting this from my iTouch, using Sac International's free wi-fi.

Oh my god, that was great! My first convention and it was awesome. We went first thing to one of the panel rooms to see and hear about "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and sat through the panel for a television show called "Happy Town" that ended with a screening of the first episode. Its a suspense mystery kinda show, not usually my thing, but it was pretty good. Got to see a segment from "The Prince of Persia" as well as from "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".
Then we hit the floor, and it was packed. I had to hold onto Dad's sleeve so as to not get separated. Lots of cosplayers, but either we or they were heading somewhere so I only got a few pictures. We both enjoyed Stylin Online's booth though we ended up only buying the official Wonder-Con shirt. My favorites were six booths of cardboard boxes full of used comicbook paperbacks, in really good condition at half the new price, and twice I had so many that the vendor gave me half off of that for a few. And just before we left we found the table giving away the Iron Man 2 poster with Scarlett Johansson.

Movie de la semaine: Tim Burton's Batman. I know what I'm doing this weekend!

After being closed for roughly six years, a local movie theater has reopened and started showing no-longer-in-theaters movies. One of the flavors this weekend is the Errol Flynn 'Robin Hood' that was partly filmed in a local park. Its weirdly set up, like the seating for two modern theaters stacked together (really, really high up!), a screen only a third in size, and an itty bitty stage too. A small audience tonight, only twenty-five or so, but it was a lot of fun and the movie has aged well.

"Da~ad! Why didn't you tell me that 'Wolfman' was a period piece?!"

"Haven't you seen the trailer?"

"When would I have?" (Actually, why wasn't this in front of 'Sherlock Holmes'?)

"... It's a period piece."

"Then I want to go with you to see it."

I decided that since I'm getting back into comicbooks, I should try some of the movies that I had passed on before. I actually saw 'Spider-Man' in the theater, but I remember hating it so much I was leery to try it again. Instead I watched 'Spider-Man 2' for the first time today with my Dad because I had heard good things about Alfred Molina's performance as Doc Ock... and that really is the only reason to watch it, in my opinion. Mary-Jane is really a jerk, and just like Lois Lane in the first 'Superman', it makes me wonder what the hero sees in her. And, does Tobey ever change his expression?

The grandparents took our family and one of the aunts to see 'Sherlock Holmes' this afternoon. I had fun and really liked it. Papa liked that for the most part he could understand what was going on just by the action, so it didn't matter that he can't hear very well. Mom complained that it was too dark, as in "I can't see!", to which I said "Atmosphere!". Dad muttered a little about the sequel hook, but I said "Well if it bothers you so much, just think of it as a Mythology Gag. That's what I'm doing."

I want Holmes's wardrobe.

The 'Iron Man 2' trailer looked awesome! But, Tony, weren't you talking about turning over a new leaf? 'Cause it sure looks an awful lot like the old one, just focusing on Iron Man's adventures instead of Stark Industries business. Or is that just a public persona?

Know what's awesome? Seeing 'The Wizard of Oz', in High-Definition, on the big screen, for its 70th Anniversary (a month late, but still). That's what's awesome!
