Well, i must be old, because the one thing i wanted more of was Han and Leia.  Shit, i could have watched a whole movie of them talking about their relationship.

What i dislike about this movie is that i am surrounded by people who are deeply invested in their childhood memories of the original trilogy and have intense feelings about it.  This makes appreciating the movie extremely complicated because i have to separate my own feelings about the original movies from my feelings about this mass of fannish children and their expectations.  I can't review it as a movie that stands on its own merits because it's tied in a bow topped by a cultural Gordian knot and, quite frankly, i blame you all for this.  As that great American William Shatner once said, "Get a life, will you people?"

On the other hand, the movie was crafted as a continuation of a previously set story, and it is impossible to assess it without taking that into consideration.

In sum, fuck you, i'm doing it my way.

omg spoilers )

[livejournal.com profile] el_muchacho's theory is that, once they've gotten the fan service out of the way, they will now focus on making awesome new stuff.  Given Abrams's Star Trek movies, i am not holding my breath.  Was it better than the prequels?  Sure.  If that's your bar, maybe you need to take a long look in the mirror.

So, until recently, one of your online social circles was plagued by a complete fucktard, one that made you miss the last fucktard who wasn't that bad but who nonetheless left several years ago after receiving a lot of abuse due to being a fucktard, and then in another online social circle, you find the first guy, so you give him another chance, and, well, he's still a fucktard, and even his friends tell him, "Dude, you act like a fucktard."

And by "you", i mean "me".  Anyway, i'm tired of fucktards.  The content that i'm seeing on Google Plus reminds me a lot of good Usenet discussions, and by "a lot" i mean "sometimes it's fucking exhausting to keep up with the crap."  It doesn't have the softness of Facebook that's primarily fueled by your high school classmates and your family.  And it's even higher in nerdrage quotient than LiveJournal's peak, and it's perhaps similar in quality to Twitter but has much larger caliber because there's actually room to expand commentary.  So of course we are waiting for Google to fuck it all up because they're very eager to get on with winning the "next Microsoft" title belt.

Fucktards... why did it have to be fucktards?

There was a time when nerds who conceived outlandishly embarrassing ideas wouldn't be given the time of day by prospective mates.  These days, they're married and breeding.  I can't tell if this is good or bad.

<[livejournal.com profile] arian1> "Grant Morrison is among the writers who.ve pitched to Warner Brothers for a Superman movie. His is an approach that pretends Superman Returns never happened. Which probably works just fine, truth be told. Apparently Geoff Johns has also submitted a pitch. It is nice that Warner Brothers is actually /talking/ to the people who write comics."
<[livejournal.com profile] ronebofh> arian: grant morrison is a choad.
<[livejournal.com profile] palecur> Grant Morrison Superman?
<palecur> "My pitch is this: 'Superman' is not actually an alien but a 3-dimensional cross-section of the Kryptonian oversoul, a hyperconsciousness that exists transcending time and our 'normal' universe. Also everyone takes a lot of drugs and fucks a lot, all the time."
<palecur> There, give me lots of money.
<rone> palecur: not Morrisonian enough
<Arian> but that was a good try
<palecur> I think I got all the major tropes.
<Arian> I'm holding out for Garth Ennis' Superman
<rone> palecur: you hsould've thrown in 'hermaphrodite' in there
<palecur> damn, you're right. And not nearly enough chaos magick references
<palecur> Garth Ennis Superman: "Superman totally pokes a 'ole in this bloke's bonce, see, wif 'is finger, roight, then 'e pulls down 'is, loike, super trousers and gives the poor bastard a right proper skullfucking, see?" [Drains pint glass, throws up on script, passes out]
<rone> "Because Superman is a wee bollix."
<palecur> Warren Ellis Superman: "Superman and Lex Luthor are in it together, generating fear and hate. Hate and fear. It makes the population easier to control, and mold, and guide in a direction more to their liking. Global warming? Luthor's using Kryptonian technology to accelerate climate change, making a hot, swampy Earth that's more hospitable for his reptoid masters. Superman is just a force-grown biological abomination made of combined reptoid and human DNA -- the reason his skin is so tough is because there's scales underneath it. Why do you think he's 'solar powered'? His reptoid heritage makes him crave the sun." [searches venue for hidden recording devices]
<palecur> "Also, Lois Lane injects saline solution into her labia in a prolonged scene that has nothing to do with the plot."
<Arian> hahaha
<Arian> Ok sooo...Superman by Joss Whedon
<Arian> Go
<palecur> "Superman fights a skinny barefoot chick, played by Summer Glau. She throws him against a building and debris falls off, impaling Jimmy Olsen."
<palecur> next
<Arian> hahahaha
<Arian> Superman, by Alan Moore
<palecur> i think for Alan Moore a mathematical interpolation of Warren Ellis and Grant Morrison will suffice
<Arian> Superman by Todd McFarlane
<palecur> eugh
<Arian> hahah
<rone> Todd McFarlane's Spawnerman.
