She's adooooorable. Also Canadian and I suddenly need more Thalia/Luke in my life.

Anthony Stewart Head to replace Pierce Brosnan as Chiron in Sea of Monsters

I figured some of the adult leads were going to get recast, given that SoM probably has a smaller budget than TLT and didn't do that well at the box office, but I don't care about this one because it's Giles as a centaur guys.

Now all we need is Eliza Dushku as Circe or something and we'll have the Joss Whedon Collection nearly complete.
greenconverses: (pjo: annabeth hilarious face)
So, uh, casting's moving forward with Sea of Monsters for like reals this time? (MISSI PYLE, WHAT)

I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I love the cast and I'm excited to see them together again. On the other hand, this movie terrifies me because HOW WILL THEY WRITE AROUND THE FIRST MOVIE and it's so werd because the fandom is in its usual activity coma post-new-book-release phase.

I'm hideously behind on NaNo, so I'll be happy if I end up getting 20,000 by the end of the month.

Days: 13 and 14
Fandom: Crazy, Stupid, Love
Characters: Hannah and Jacob
Prompt: Nothing prompted this but my DVD of Crazy, Stupid, Love and all the pictures of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone I reblog constantly.
Spoilers: If you have seen the movie, I wouldn't recommend reading this because it will spoil you significantly.
Word Count: 1,266

Jacob Palmer is not someone who does awkward. )
greenconverses: (easy a: todd and olive)
Title: Say Anything
Fandom: Easy A
Subject: Olive/Todd
Warnings: Slightly spoilery back cover.
Notes: Mostly '80s music with some random ABBA and early '90s slipping in two for my favorite teen comedy couple ever. I love this movie, and I love Olive/Todd. WHERE IS THIS FANDOM HIDING


Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. )

Oh my god, you guys Tron: Legacy was so fucking bad, you have no idea. Just - no. Don't bother. Save yourself the agony and stay home for this one. Maybe if the entire movie had been lightcycle battles, it wouldn't have sucked so bad because that was pretty much the only awesome part about it.

Except for the music. That was kind of epic. Daft Punk, you win everything.

Got back from seeing Voyage of the Dawn Treader and I wasn't terribly impressed. I mean, the movie wasn't terrible or anything, but it just... lacked the magic of the first two? I don't know. It just didn't capture me the way The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe did or make me want to immediately go re-watch it like Prince Caspian did.

Long, spoilerish thoughts under the cut )

Also, can I mention how much I absolutely loathe 3D movies? STOP MAKING MOVIES IN 3D IF THEY DON'T NEED TO BE. Narnia in 3D is absolutely fucking pointless just like Tangled was.
greenconverses: (actors: megan fox)
Joining the chorus of HOMG TANGLED WAS AWESOME that I've been seeing on my f-list. I love a good princess movie - and Rapunzel was a fabulous princess!

This also serves as a yes, I'm alive post. I've just been so busy and my life fairly uninteresting that I haven't been posting
greenconverses: (hunger games: katniss/peeta 2)
Confession: I could really not give a flying fuck about who they cast in The Hunger Games movie so long as it's not fucking Kaya Scodelario.

I just wish they would do it already so fandom can stop with all the fucking weekly ~fan cast~ posts and move on to bitching about something else.
greenconverses: (titanic: i like my men)
You guys. You have to see Inception sometime this summer. Like now would be good.

It's one of those movies you talk about for like a hour afterward and you still can't get over how good it was. The acting's awesome, the special effects are sweet, and it's just great. It's also a total mind fuck, but in the absolutely best way possible.

Plus, Joseph Gordan-Levitt is fucking hot in those suits. Also, Leo DiCaprio. Enough said there.

brb, finding the the movie score. Hans Zimmer, you fucking genius...

eta: Beware of spoilers in the comments.

Dammit Pixar, why must you always make me cry?
greenconverses: (narnia: edmund)
As [ profile] mysticfushia said, "Here is your goddamn narnia trailer please fangirl over this in front of your roomies so they realize what a nerd you really are."


greenconverses: (httyd: hiccup and toothless)
8 Alexandra Daddario
6 Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games
31 How To Train Your Dragon


'Could you be a little less...' 'You just gestured to all of me!' )
greenconverses: (narnia: peter)
How to Train Your Dragon = cutest fucking movie of 2010. I would go cuddle with this movie if I could, it is that damn cute. Hiccup and Toothless = ♥

It also has a fantastic score which is MASSIVE BONUS POINTS for me because there is nothing I adore more than a fantastic score. I love this track in particular. And this one too!

If you need a movie to go to over Easter weekend, definitely pick this one.

So. Just finished watching Up for the first time.

My GOD THE FIRST TWENTY MINUTES. TEARS STREAMING DOWN MY FACE CONSTANTLY. If there hadn't been two other people in the room with me, I probably would've burst into literal sobs during at least three scenes of the movie. I don't think I've cried this hard during a ever. And I cry during a lot of movies.

What is it about Pixar movies? There's always at least one scene in every one of their movies that makes me cry. I cry practically on cue at the end of Wall-e. It's ridiculously pathetic.

"John Scalzi Rates SciFi Movies by Their EXPLOSIONS" seems highly appropriate.

This one is my favorite:

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Yes, The Empire Strikes Back was the best-written and directed of the original trilogy, but on the explosion front, it was, shall we say, underwhelming. (TIE fighters? An Imperial walker? A power generator? Weak sauce.) Not so with Jedi, which blows up Jabba's yacht, a shield installation, Imperial cruisers, dozens upon dozens of fighter ships, yet another Death Star, and -- critically -- at least one Ewok. Really, this is a high point, if not the high point, in science-fiction exploderation. The explosion-special-effects people should get an Oscar -- THAT EXPLODES.

And this reminds me, I need to watch Independence Day sometime this weekend, even though I'm sure FX will be playing it nonstop.

I haven't been dooming and glooming about the movie like a lot of people in fandom have, but I have had my worries. This article makes it sound encouraging though.

In Columbus' movie, Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) is a boarding school kid sent to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods. From there he has adventures with gods and creatures of Greek myth in the present day. This is not a spoof, mind you: Columbus takes his gods very seriously.

"Percy Jackson's a very serious movie," Columbus said. "It's comedic, but it's only comedic in a way that an Indiana Jones movie can be comedic. So I think in terms of comparing it to something like Clash of the Titans, it is more of an Indiana Jones-meets-Greek-mythology [movie], as opposed to a pure period-piece Greek myth, Clash of the Titans."

Columbus has taken some liberties with the source material: Maybe not every sequence from the book is in the movie, but maybe he came up with some better ideas. "Just some of the creatures have been changed," Columbus said. "We have sort of a breathtaking hydra sequence that replaces a sequence that used to take place at the Seattle [St. Louis] Arch. Our version of Hades is a little different. There are other changes here and there. Camp Half-Blood is a lot more dangerous, a lot more serious than it was in the book."


I believe in Chris Columbus. He did an excellent job translating the first two Harry Potters to the screen, and even though PJO doesn't have quite the rabid fanbase to make him do the same, as long as he captures the spirit of the books and doesn't make it completely stupid a la "Eragon" (which wasn't that hard, considering the source material), I'm okay with it. Besides, "The Lightning Thief" has an awesome adult cast, so here's hoping.

Supposedly the teaser trailer is coming out with Half-Blood Prince (double squee!), so I'm going to reserve screaming about how they ruined the book until I see that.
greenconverses: (Transformers)
All right, so I know the f-list has probably been waiting for me to post this...





In which I continue to flail and capslock like the fangirl I am )

Why don't I have a Transformers tag? Ugh.
greenconverses: (gun pr0n)
Finally saw Star Trek. FUCKING LOVED IT. I WAS GRINNING LIKE A LOON THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MOVIE. Need an icon of Chris Pine and/or the entire cast soon.

Also saw Angels & Demons today. Decent, but forgettable I think. Like the cinematography and excellent acting on all sides. Can never go wrong with an Ewan McGregor movie. Also had way too many flashbacks to my Catholic school days while watching.

Going to bed now...
