So a lot of things have been happening since I last updated this blog. I put it on the backburner because things like school and… well pretty much just school, ended up kicking my ass, taking my lunch money, and telling me that I better never talk to the pretty cheerleaders again. But the blog has always been in the back of my mind. I’ve even broken it out a few times to talk about interesting news, but then decided that my humble opinions were not worthy of the interblags. But now I have to show you something.
Last night, after much mental and physical preparation (practicing my groans of disgust), I set out to see the now infamous X-Men Wolverine: Origins. Between the leaked footage of the work-in-progress footage, and the perpetual torrent of negative reviews, the chances that I’d enjoy this movie looked bleak. To be honest, I was backing on the hopes that this film would pull what I’ve termed a “Step Brothers”– that is, that I would go in with such low, low expectations that I would be fantastically blown away by what is otherwise just a pretty okay film.
And this is pretty much what happened. Sort of. (Warning, spoilers after the jump)
I know, I know. It’s been like, a month and a half, or more, whatever, since you last heard from me.
I know I haven’t been keeping up on the latest, (Is Watchmen even still in Theaters?) or providing any new reviews or suggestions or anything.
And I know this must be terribly frustrating for you, but imagine how I feel. Remembering, every day, that I made a promise that I am continuously and without just excuse breaking.
I could tell you that college is beating me down, I could tell you that I’m too busy, I could tell you I have nothing to review, or I could tell you that my moonlighting as a vigilante has been keeping me too busy. Really, only a few of those are true.
But I will tell you that I’m working on it, and I’m trying to make some time for you, because you REALLY ARE that important.
But in the meantime, I can leave you with this, in the hopes that perhaps you will feel a little better about me.
See? Can you even be mad now?
When I was first told about Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, I was skeptical. A musical about an evil super villain? I mean. Okay. Supervillains are awesome. And musicals can be okay (although I still can’t believe I was lucky enough to see Evil Dead: The Musical, which was absolutely amazing). I had heard one or two songs from the soundtrack before and found it easily to write off and forget about.
But leave it Peter to show me the error of my ways and force me to sit down and watch it.
