Preacher is the latest comic book to get a on screen adaptation, starring Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, and Joseph Gilgun (none of who speak with their native accents).

"Jesus, what kind of preacher are you?" - mild spoilery reviewCollapse )

Random fact: my friend who has a history of randomly meeting actors in real life and never recognizing them, watched this pilot with me. I pointed out to her that Dominic Cooper was that guy she once met whom she was convinced was a waiter just saying he was an actor. She still didn't recognize him.

Oh come on!

I'm super disappointed there won't be any more episodes. I still have so many questions!

Thus concludes the Captain America trilogy. The final installment, directed by the Russo Brothers stars literally everyone from the Marvel movies, minus Thor and Bruce Banner. Plus we get Black Panther and Spider-Man. Apologies for the long review. The movie itself was really, REALLY long.

I guess I'll just be posting these as I lead up to watching the movie.

Is it weird that I knew the answers to all the questions except for the Chris Evans one? I don't even know how all these random facts came into my head. If I only I could learn materials for my licensing exam as easily as I know actor facts.

Watch some Avengers play Musical Beers on the Tonight Show. The final round never fails to make me laugh. Also, I get the feeling Scarlett Johanssen would have killed at this game had she been there.

I figured I should catch up on the last couple of Marvel movies I'd missed to prep myself for Captain America 3: Civil War. And judging by the reviews of Cap 3, it sounds like that was a wise choice since that movie's got a bundle of characters from Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.

Age of Ultron, spoilers!Collapse )

Ant-Man, spoilers!Collapse )

One thing I wanted to try and do as I start to say a protracted goodbye to New York was to see more shows here. So it was my great luck that a production of The Crucible is currently running here, starring Ben Whishaw, Saiorse Ronan, Sophie Okonedo, and Ciaran Hinds. I saw it last night with a friend and it was great!

This UK-US-CA tri-partnership TV series starring British Stephen Mangan and American Michael Weston (with swapped hair dos!) and Canadian Rebecca Liddiard tells the story of Harry Houdini & Arthur Conan Doyle, crime fighters!

But seriously. It's really that.

This is mainly for aelfgyfu_mead who wishes somehow she could just watch Foggy and avoid literally everything else. We can all assume Foggy is a good friend and a patient person. So below the cut are more stand out moments for him. I'm pretty sure I did this in proper chronological order.

Spoilers for Season 2Collapse )

Apparently I'm not done thinking about this show. I can't really help it as I try to rework my fic to account for all the new canon that got dumped down on us.

Below are some of my own personal wishes for season 3. Most of it is about relationships rather than plot. The show can do whatever plot but it'd be great if they can work in my relationship wishlist.
