is it just me, or does Captain Jack Harkness act signifigantly less energetic and sexual on Torchwood... hmmm.... maybe its the distinct lack of Doctor ._.;


so i get online to read some web comics and manga and other such nerdness. i sign in, boot up, blah blah blah. and i go to read ctrl+alt+del and what do i see? A NEW DESIGN!!
realy caught me off guard, and my first instinct was similar to amny when introduced to unexpected newness: rejection.
ah rejection. thorn in my side that you are.
then about thirty seconds pass. and i like it. congratulations to tim and everybody working on the series and website. it looks fantastic. and might i say, it was about damn time.

star trekin it

so. i watched the latest Star Trek flick. yeah. im not a trekkie, but my uncle made me watch it. im not much of a reviewer either, but im gonna try and offer my hand at this. my own interpretation. it was good. far better then i had imagined. the scripting was top notch, cinimatography fantastic, acting doesnt even need to be spoken for, special effects so well done that i barely noticed. i loved the nods back to the old series and sorta inside jokes (and im also glad there was no red shirt type jokes) and also, all the jokes in the movie didnt make me want to soak my eyes or ears in hydrocloric acid: intelligent and funny. horray. good job jj abrams.
but then i see it. i see my big complaint. and it happens early on, stabbing my pupils with its intrucive sharp edge: those lighting effects. my GOD calm down on the lighting effects, especially for lights out of frame. the worst being douring some dialog among our heroes on the bridge. theyre just talking. thats it. talking. but for some reason, all those lighting effects made me want to run in circles for how energetic they made me feel. i was getting seriously irritated. i dont think you could go 10 seconds on the bridge of the enterprise without one of these "special effects" rearing its ugly ugly head.
now, there were some scenes where they worked, and worked well. these sequances were called "action scenes." but to see these douring dialog, it did nothing but detract from the on screen character interactions.
so if you make a second ST film JJ, i beg of you: tone down the lights my friend.

how i would have done it

How I Would Have Done... X-Men 3
(or, 5 things that killed the movie.)

. I'm no director or movie person of any kind, but this is how i would have done the X-Men movies. least the first 2 alone, they're fine (just minor picky shite... mostly with Sabertooth and Logan not having known each other. Logan not knowing him, OK, i could understand that... amnesia from his berserker rages.... but creed? no, creed would have known him.) No... I would have done 3 over.
1. Leave Jean dead. Simple. I know that, because it's a movie for not just fans, but for the movie going audience, they cant leave loose ends, but i say, screw it. loose ends can make or break a movie. so leave her dead, bring her back either at the end of the 3rd movie, or during the 4th movie.
2. Scott leaves the school. Jean is dead, so lets focus on Scott (Cyclops). Flesh him out more, and have him leave the school to sort f, soul search. He did it fairly often in the books, so why not here? this is also where i would bring up how he had to raise his brother by himself, and they lived in an orphanage and all that. He HAD controll of his powers, untill he got hit on the head in the fight. And you could also bring in his brother, and that relationship.... where they practically fist fight to the death.
3. a new villian. Don't get me wrong, i love magneto... although, why cant Ian Macellan do a German accent? i know he does it. he did it in another Brian Singer film, "apt pupil", so why not here? anyway. new villian. teh X-Men universe has so many to choose from, so why not one of them? id say, bring apocolypse. turn this into a two part type of film. where hes exterminating people by the hundreds in his genetic cleansing. then when it seems all hope is lost, bring in Pheonix.
4. Play down Wolverine. i know hes the big money maker here for Marvel, but seriously... what the heck people? too damn much. tone it down, let other Muties grab the spotlight. Colossus alone could have used more screen time. and why the world did they have Kitty falling for ice man anyway?
5. Bring in Gambit. Two simple reasons here: Bring in tension between rogue, gambit, and iceman. they did this anyway with kitty pryde, which i see as a waste of the characters. and secondly... bring in gambit because we all wanted him! hes not hard to do, just a lot of research and practice on the actors part. not hard.
