A Little Amazed, A Little Harried, And More Than A Little Heartbroken...  
This weekend just blurred by! I can't remember very much from Thursday on. And I'm terribly far behind on everything, but I will say this:

As to the rumors of two deaths by the season finale...
Most of us are thinking it to be Chloe and Davis, especially due to the huge rumors of Doomsday playing a huge part in the what-has-to-be cliffie for the season. Me, I think Chloe would be too obvious. And since it's the season finale, why couldn't they kill Clark, guys? I mean, it's not like they can't play off the fact that it's been months when they come back in September. And that gives Lois and the rest of the cast enough time to deal with what has happened, although it can't be EPIC the way the original is. I'm not sure where my money is right now, although I can see Davis Bloome being the best contender. And I'm in denial that they would take Tess. I'll be homicidally pissed if they take Tess.

And the rest of the spoilers I've been seeing are amazing! Not sure just how they're going to handle the Clois, but she'd better be right in the midst of the finale. There's not any good reason that she shouldn't be. And you get the most mileage out of his having been gone. But then again, look at what happened the last time I tried to figure out what they were up to. I came up with a better plausible storyline than they did. Here's hoping it's as good as it could be with the TC2 running the season next year instead of the PS3. :D

ETA (for the above): I stand corrected! XD So those two losses will take. ...hmmm... Okay, I think I'll be forced to agree with the rest of fandom. But I like my idea better. *crosses arms and pouts*

And then we went to see Watchmen on Saturday night. It's been years since I read the trade and I still remembered some of the details, but the pure gorgeousness on the images kept me pretty breathless throughout.

And the sense of history that you get is amazing, especially in that you can see all the work that went into Dr. Manhattan there on screen. And the way you slowly understood what was going on in the opening credits as the story went on. The uber-nerd in me wants to know all of it, the entire back story behind the original 'Minutemen'. I don't feel like I got to know them well enough, but then again, they could fit much more in with it being an almost three hour movie. I really loved Dan, but since he's Clark with Bruce's money and gadgets. But although, the story was amazing, the film is still on my mind.

Despite it being a superhero film, this wasn't mindless brain-candy for me the way some are. There's a lot of things, serious and grim things, going on in that film and I really want to stew over it before doing a more in-depth review. And I want to add that no one should have to go through a viewing of that film with an eight-year-old girl sitting next to her, especially with the graphic subject matter in that film! I felt like such a creep sitting next to her while the Comedian/Sally scene was going on, the child-killer, any scene with Rorschach's mother, the graphic death scenes, and the Daniel/Laurie scence in Archimedes. No child under the age of sixteen should see that film, but I know that sounds very old-school of me. Forgive me if I'm still protective. I'll have to go see it again at a late showing so I feel less weird. But the film was first-rate.

And I have to just have a moment here to have a little sendoff to one of my favorite shows, although they've done some pretty lousy out-of-character things to their cast this year. A bittersweet goodbye to The L Word after six seasons. Some of the storylines from this season were just barely believable, but they did manage to get the long-awaited Shane and Jenny pairing in there, despite Ilene's twisting their story for the sake of drama. We deserved better and so did they. That said, Jenny Schecter, I shall miss you madly. You were the girl I was best able to identify with and you were never understood as well as you should have been. Thank God for Shane. Rest in peace, darling. I can't imagine my Sunday nights without you and Shane.





And last but not least, I have ditzyfish to thank for this video of twenty-two-year-old Margot on Dick Cavett! Head over to RV and check it out!

why couldn't they kill Clark, guys?

Because they said the deaths would stick - there's no coming back.

People are saying Lois is expendable?

I agree. Especially if Chloe is married to Jimmy. Jimmy doesn't have a wife in the Superman Era. So either Chloe dies or she moves away and leaves Jimmy. It would really make sense if Chloe died though. Not to sound Anti, lol! Just the story of Superman would make sense. Maybe her death is what jumpstarts Clark into putting on the red cape, or fly for that matter.

LOL! Do they realize how much they don't make any sense when they say that? Lois Lane doesn't have a place on a show about Superman. Okay?! Right. Don't quit yer day job Chlarkers.

*rolls eyes* Dammit. The Chloisers really need to grow up. It's gotten beyond ridiculous now. Now is the time for Lois to be 'officially' in his life. The writers would be suicidal if they killed her off now. Lois is not expendable in any way, shape, or form. What will it take to get that through their brains? Chloe is and has always been an amalgam of the comics Lois and Lana (the reporter and confidant/the best friend with the unrequited crush), but that doesn't make Lois obsolete.

...damn, this show's fans make me wish so hard for canon.

Hmmm, I'm planning on seeing Watchmen tomorrow and I'm getting more and more interested as I read all the reviews. I've never read the graphic novel (and actually have no desire to do so (and apparently this means I'm not a true comic book fan...what?)) but I get the feeling it's not going to be what I expect. I also didn't realize how long it was... hmm, I shall stock up on lollies at the supermarket before I go. (Stupid high-priced movie food *grr*)

And I think eight is a bit too young to see stuff like that, what were her parents thinking? (although I used to watch graphic horror movies when I was as young as nine and it didn't bother me so I can't really talk)

And two deaths in Smallville? I really hope it's not Chloe, I like her- even though it seems likely what with her not being canon and the Legion being all "Who's Chloe?"

You'll have to tell me what you thought of Watchmen, lady! I didn't feel the almost-three hours at all, but then again, I didn't feel the length of SR or Titanic. *shrugs* I really hope you enjoy it. It really is one of those films that stick in your mind.

When you see the film, it'll be easier to understand why the kid next to me bothered me so much. It's a pretty disturbing film.

I'm pretty sure we'll be losing her and Davis, just from the rumor mill, but I'm actually not to happy about it myself. Even as OOC as she's been on and off all season, I'll really miss her if she goes.

No child under the age of sixteen should see that film,

Agreed! Way to graphic and violent for any child under 17! An amazing film. I want to see it again, this time in IMAX!

As for the Smallville spoilers, I'm not going to speculate on deaths on the show. The show has been so depressing since November...!! I'm focusing on the Clois spoilers and how Clark and Lois will interact. ANY spoiler about them brings a smile to my face!! :D:D

When I saw it on Saturday, there were at least two little kids in the theater. Little kids - toddlers!! I was disgusted with both the parents for bringing them and the theater for letting them in.

There were parts I couldn't handle - let alone a baby. People need to get their heads examined!!!

Mouth drops open in shock!! And they stayed through the entire movie!!??

That's terrible!! It's rated R.... !!! People??!! Unbelievable..!!
Lois: Heirs :: Lois :: Grumpykalalanekent on March 11th, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
Yep. They actually left after we did. And Mom and Dad let her sit next to Mom, but Mom has hanging on Dad the whole time. I felt so bad because I wanted to warn her not to look at some parts and couldn't make myself do it. I just want to throttle her parents.

People thought that this was going to be a fluffy little superhero flick, which is just stupid because you could see it was more than that from the preview! And I'm right there with you. I loved it, but it disturbed me in a huge way. I think Alan Moore did an excellent job yet again of forcing us to think, but all it will give a child is nightmares. If you have a child and want to see this film, GET A BABYSITTER! *smacks the stupid people*
