dangermousie: (BW: KANK by SRKFanatic)
First off, a fic rec. Let Go is an amazing X-Men: The Last Stand fic by [livejournal.com profile] babel. It's Scott and Emma Frost-centric (no not that way), sharp and romantic and clever all at once and it's good enough that I'd love it even if I didn't know anything about the fandom. Why are you still here? Go read it. And leave her feedback.

And now a bunch of picspams united only by their prettiness. First off, a Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna picspam. This Indian flick about two married couples living in New York who find themselves torn when Dev (Shahrukh Khan) and Maya (Rani Mukehrji) fall in love with each other despite their marital status is going to kill me with the anticipation.

KANK. You angst so pretty, baby! )

And because you can never have enough, more Hayden Christensen picspam.



The Prettiness Hurts My Heart, Precious )

Today's hotter than hot picspam of the day is of James Marsden, best known for playing Cyclops in the X-Men movies. I have to confess that JM is one of the very few actors with whom I couldn't care less about their acting abilities or lack thereof because the hormones override anything else. I would be happy to watch a whole movie with them just making like a tree and standing still so I could ogle (others include Olivier Martinez, Tom Welling and Orlando Bloom). So, without further ado:

A little less formally attired:



A cornucopia of gorgeousness )

Husband and I just watched X-Men, the Last Stand, and though I am probably the last person on my f-list to watch this, it's still probably a good idea to cut this so I will.

First off, have to mention that all I know about X-men are from the three movies and the knowledge gleaned from Husband and Best Friend who are both a bit of X-Men fans.

Overall, I liked it a lot, though like the other two X-Men movies it reminded me of nothing else as much as a complicated, two-hour season finale for some fabulous show that I haven't watched. Because by its very nature, unlike Batman or Spiderman or Superman, X-Men deals with a world full of various superhero characters, none of them gets a huge scope in the movies. You get tantalizing glimpses and all that, but you didn't get much of anyone in this movie except Magneto and Wolverine, and not too much even of them. I don't mind that (after all, it's based on years and years of comics), it actually makes me more interested in the world created and the characters and leaves more scope for the imagination, but it certainly gives the thing a different vibe.

Anyhow, looooong write-up behind the cut. Largely Jean/Wolverine/Scott centric.

I am so emo. Give me leather! )

dangermousie: (Anime: Sanzo by ssjbento)
Watched a few more Saiyuki eps, which continue to be very good (I like it better than GetBackers, though I like GB). The hilarious ep with Lirin trying to take out 'baldy Sanzo' with three henchmen who make 3 stooges seem competent was priceless, and I liked the one with Homura (sp?) as I want to find out about the guys' previous lives (here is a phrase you only hear in anime), and I loved Sanzo denying a god (big surprise). But I liked the previous one the best, as I generally prefer more serious ones, as it satisfies my angst craving, and the artwork gets creative. The episode with Sanzo trapped in the spirit realm by that demon general who is trying to take over his mind by finding weaknesses was quite quite excellent, and not just because we get Sanzo issues, which is something quite rare because he is never ever into showing them. I liked the demonstration that it does bother him, what he does for a living. It's pretty significant the demon hooks up on the whole 'you are a man of god yet your hands are covered in blood' issue as a breaking point for him. The image of his hands covered in blood, and going back to his childhood and his master and failing to save him are definitely the guy's breaking point. No wonder in the flashback he picks that gun because he can always put a bullet through his head. And I do love that bit in the flashback where the master tells child Sanzo that he came and found him and stretched out his hand because he heard his voice, and maybe someday this will happen to Sanzo. Because this of course reminded me of the fact that this is how Sanzo rescued Goku (a priestly pay it forward? Hmmm), but it also this is how Goku rescues Sanzo: it's Goku's hands that pull Sanzo out and it's Goku's voice that brings him back. I find it pretty telling that a lot of things annoy Goku, but only one thing terrifies him: losing Sanzo. I would be all about the slash for those two, except for the father/son vibes which make it severely ick.

And this brings me to a related point. Which is, who was on crack and how much of it, when they designed the credits? Because with ep 27, the opening credits change. And we get what Husband referred to as 'history of pop music' with the boys sauntering around like models in modern clothing (okaaaaay, though weird), interspersed with s&m shots of the guys in various states of disarray all chained up and restrained. Repeatedly. Ummmm. Ummmmm. Ummmmmm. WHY? Not that it isn't pretty or what not, but this show itself it pretty vanilla when it comes to that. Heck, there ISN'T any sex on this show. I also don't think Sanzo halls out his BDSM gear at every rest-stop. It's pretty bizarre. And how about the closing credits, which show the four characters in slashy poses with any possible combo. I am not into slash for this show, mainly because everyone is too screwed up to get it on with ANYONE, but good Lord, I can see why people slash it.

And talking of cute guys who angst, I've been seeing X-Men posters around town. Surely I can't be the only one to prefer Cyclops to Wolverine. Heck, I don't find Wolverine appealing at all. If he cut out his smoking, took a regular shower, got a shave and a haircut, and a bit better manners, maybe. At least Cyclops is angsty AND clean-shaven, proving you can be both at the same time.
