Questions )
rubykatewriting: (Mal: Done)
* I like the overall arc of Gilmore girls this season, i.e., I was finally able to catch up on all the episodes since the end of January. Seeing them all back to back like that, in one continuous thread, really showed off how well DR is doing. I like that he is actually wrapping up storylines that have been lingering since season one, specifically Lorelai and Christopher. Granted, I ship them - have since "Christopher Returns." However, we finally had a conclusion to their storyline. Somehow I doubt it would have been as neatly done in ASP's hands, simply because she hasn't been able to make a clear choice since mid-way through season two. It's always this back and forth. Then there is Emily. She will always be a bitch, a product of her upbringing and generation, but she's no longer stagnating in this pool of bitchery. There's movement, something approaching progression. Richard's heart attack was just as difficult to sit through as I knew it would be, but I so loved that scene with all four of my beloved Gilmores as they strolled the hospital hallways. It illustrated why I adored them from the word go, even with all the baggage so clearly evident in the pilot episode. I'll conclude my fannish love by saying that I also adore the trajectory of the RoryLogan relationship, and I loved watching Lane and Zack prepare, with massive amounts of grumbling and panicking, for their boys. Oh, and Mrs. Kim, you will always rock hard in my heart. (I can't go near the Anna/April/Luke custody storyline without seeing massive amounts of rageful red, so I'll save myself [and you] by not mentioning it any further.)

* 30 Rock is the most consistently funny and smartest show on network television. I cannot wait until it comes back, which according to my DVR, is this Thursday. I'm enjoying Andy Barker, PI well enough, but it is no 30 Rock.

* Slither is disgusting but oh so funny. Gunn so ably captured all that is fantastic about a good, scary monster movie while putting his own stamp on things. (He named the high school after Fred Ward's character in Tremors, people! One word: AWESOME.) I should also note that Gunn really writes some fantastic females. I loved Tania Saulnier and Elizabeth Banks, especially Banks. She was so fucking kickass as Starla. Plus, Nathan curses up a fucking storm, thereby putting it into automatic classic territory. (I'm shallow, yo.) But then I checked out the extras, all of them (a sure sign I love the film, if I'm checking out even the technical shit), and Nathan is AFUCKINGDORABLE, with his little-boy-like, "You scared the shit out of me!" Seriously, when does Drive start? I need my weekly fix of one Mr. Fillion, thanks. Another thing, the juxtaposition of Gregg Henry in this versus his polished role as Logan's pops on GG is pretty fangirl-inspiring, but then he had me at, "Move the fuck out of the way cocksucker!"

* The Lookout was decent, but not the immediate classic the critics are hailing it to be. JGL was fantastic of course. And pretty. So fucking pretty. It's funny. When he's half-naked (at one point, he wakes up in shorts and no shirt) he looks more solid, but dressed, he looks so fragile, as if I could take him over my knee and break him in half, all vengeful giant like.

* Upon second viewing (went to see it with Mom), Premonition is still as good and affecting, and knowing how it ends, I was able to sit back and pick up all the clues, but then one of the first scenes gives it away. It really reinforced that the "premonitions" are just the McGuffin of the piece.

* I find Paul Walker immensely more attractive when he handles his business like he did in Running Scared. He was capable and BELIEVABLE. (My world is all-askew.) He fucking rocked that part like I haven't seen him rock a part since Joy Ride. He was so gritty and worn around the edges (which makes TONS of sense once you realize what's really going down). Then he starred opposite Vera Farmiga, who played his kickass, take-no-names wife, and I just about died of happiness.

* Brothers & Sisters, how is it you make me laugh fucking out loud one minute, only to have me in tears the next? In short, how you so awesome?

I had other thoughts, but as I predicted, since I didn't write them down, they've fluttered away as so much else has over the last week. Dude, whatever this was I got this time kicked my ass, and then handed my kicked ass back to me, laughing.

Today is Katt's birthday so we're having chili-dogs and chips followed by strawberry cake with ice cream. God, I love hot dogs, but chili dogs OWN MY SOUL. Seriously. The only thing missing is the onions. It really isn't a chili dog without onions. Lots of them. However, we’re a close little office, so I’ll make do without.
rubykatewriting: (Matthew Rhys: One Sexy Bastard)
cammy, among others over at TWoP, posted some tidbits from the Brothers & Sisters panel at the Paley Festival. I loved this one from dear Matthew:

"Someone asked how Matthew masters his American accent, and he basically said he tries his hardest to sound like the other brothers. But he said he sometimes messes up and once the director (may have been Ken Olin, can’t remember) yelled "cut" and said something like, "Try not to sound like you’re from Middle Earth." That got a lot of laughs. There were quite a few questions directed at Matthew Rhys, which I hardly minded since we rarely get to hear his real accent - it’s quite remarkable how he can hide it."

HEE! And I know this makes me a complete geeky fangirl, but I love it when the cast seems to get along so well. It gives me the warm fuzzies.

ETA: Oh! 2MuchTV's account is pretty close to awesome.

A few things )

Overall, a pretty terrific episode and they totally got me with Alexi Murdoch's Orange Sky. I LOVE that song.
rubykatewriting: (Kevin & Scotty: KISS!)
[livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight did an awesome job pimping Brothers & Sisters. You should go read it and watch the show because God knows, we need more people to SQUEE and FLAIL over Kevin's AWESOMENESS with.

Come on, it's got Greg Berlanti going for it! (He took over after some behind-the-scenes shitola between Marti Noxon and the network.) While it hasn't quite mastered Everwood's stunning ability to make me cry and awww and miraculously love every character each week, it's improving, slowly but surely. Plus, Everwood never had Matthew Rhys.

Dearest Kevin,

I would greatly appreciate it if there was more HOT OPEN MOUTHED BOYKISSING (tm [livejournal.com profile] romanticalgirl) and less open-mouth-insert-foot when you interact with Scotty. I tell you this with great affection. Really. You are just about the only Walker (aside from Paige but she's a Walker-Whedon, so I thank Joe for that) I don't feel an overwhelming urge to beat about the head and neck in any given episode. Even with your open-mouth-insert-foot issues.

Thanks ever so much,
rubykate

Brothers & Sisters )

Pardon my CW bitterness. It's been a-brewin' since the WB days... )

Kidnapped! )


Annnnd...two worlds are colliding. My fave cutefunny actor Steve Zahn (Oh, Sammy! I would so let you back in the house, bud. Really.) and my fave hotintense actor Christian Bale are working on a new film together. (Scroll about a little over halfway down the page to bask in the scruffy hotness.) How I have not heard of this before today? Are my secret fears correct? Am I, in fact, living under a rock?

I am totally loving Brothers & Sisters. Family Portrait )

In other news, I made this pumpkin turkey chilli today and it was so yummy. Thick and hearty and completely at odds with the sudden warm up weather-wise. But since I don't think it's stopped raining for more than two hours all day, I pretended it was not just dreary and soaking but nippy too.
