That’s just super

3

As hard I made it for you to guess the theme here, it’s superman. I’ve never been a huge fan of the tale. I like my superheroes, like I like my food- hot, spicy with a hint of saucy. Iron-Man RDJ fits the bill perfectly with the playboy, your-opinion-is-irrelevant attitude

.

I am a MARVEL girl, for real. When I was born, the doctors said ‘She’s a marvel this one, you are the luckiest parents alive.’ I also like the Marvel comics. X-Men ftw. My biggest dream as a kid was to be Rogue especially when I started watching X-Men Evolution. She was the brooding face of my earliest blog and continues to be my favorite comic-book character for reasons that probably extend beyond her wardrobe.

Like I said, probably.

Which brings us to Man of Steel or does it? Well before we get to that, I just have like a small subset of the million things I have to say, that I have to list.

Best Lois ever- Erica Durance

Pitbull on a pantleg

Best Lois & Clark ever- Teri Hatcher & Dean Cain

They have Chemistry and Dean Cain is just chilled out and funny and doesn’t spend all his time brooding in a barn.

Hottest Superman or blur or whatever- Tom Welling Hands down

That’s not from Smallville, it’s from when he was an Abercrombie model, but so cute and hot. It can’t be easy to be both those things at the same time.

But here’s a ranking  if you wanna see the contenders or if you’re one of those people who finds Daniel Craig attractive.

Man of Steel- the real story

So my best friend calls me when the movie was still in production and is like ‘OMG WE HAVE TO GO FOR IT!’ and I’m like sure, but why so much enthusiasm, shouldn’t you attempt to curb it and then well:

1.She tells me Henry Cavill is superman. I’m like who is that?

She tells me Henry Cavill is superman. I'm like who is that?

2. After I Google Henry Cavill

3. She tells me Amy Adams is playing Lois Lane

It takes me a while to get over that one.

4. It takes me a while to get over that one 

She tells me Amy Adams is playing Lois Lane

5. We debate what the casting director was thinking and question his/her better judgement about the Amy Adams decision

6. I start watching the movie and Henry Cavill comes on screen

7. We can’t help ourselves as we watch the culmination of manly perfection despite his terrible acting

low how big he is with sush

8. Amy Adams comes on screen

9. Amy Adams has lines.

10. Then Jonathan Kent has to go and die.

11. Every time Henry went off screen

12. When I realize the guy who plays the good(mostly) Dr.Emil Hamilton on Smallville is playing the Dr’s assistant- Officer Sekowsy, in the movie

omg the mil from smallville is the fake emil s assitant in this movie thatss so fucked up

13. My friend when I point this fact out to her

14. Amy Adams and the sexy new supes start making out almost as randomly as Ron and Hermione in the last Harry Potter movie

15. I find out that they’re planning on making this a trilogy

say what now

16. Henry Cavill comes back on screen yelling and flying and seemingly devoid of any actual lines

tell me i m pretty

17. Amy Adams starts talking again

no i dont wanna hear it

18. I remember the trilogy thing and ask God WHY they do such things

they will never elanrTHESE GUYS WILL NEVER LEARN. A HOT GUY DOES NOT A MOVIE MAKE.BUT IT DOES MAKE A LOT OF TV SHOWS. THE CW NETWORK IS A TESTAMENT TO THAT.

19. I start praying for mercy and that by some miracle Christopher Nolan will MAKE more Batman movies and not lend a producer credit to “meh”inducers like this movie and start muttering in frustration

why cant you just make more batman

20. Finally, I go to seek solace in galleries of Tom Welling

me at TW

5 Terrible Lessons We Learned from Superman Movies

Hello Judd Nelson

My name is Vee and I’m an addict, a sitcom addict that is. Too bad there aren’t support groups for things that are actually important. This week I came to a rather horrifying realization…the skinnier I get, the skinnier my skinny jeans get. How that works is beyond me! I also received some bad news from my alter ego Princess Mariska Baklava, I am pop-culturally challenged. As a side-effect of my obsessive relationship with TV shows and sitcoms in particular, I hardly ever watch movies, unless Robert Downey Jr is in them or maybe if I’m feeling generous, I catch intriguing, edge-of-your seat thrillers like Wreck It Ralph (which I only indulged because 30 rock star Jack McBrayer voiced one of the characters).

In every show there are always references to old movies and characters from dark ages( also known as the time before I was born). Each time those references are made I laugh, either prompted by the laugh track on the show or gut instinct( usually happens when I’m watching Psych), but the fact that I don’t actually get it makes my soul die a little.

  1. I haven’t seen The Breakfast Club, but I know that the end has everyone on a field and the guy in the modified trench coat pumps his fist into the air, possibly with soul-touching soundtrack playing in the background to solidify the emotion.
  2. I have never watched a Michael Douglas movie, but from what I could make of the references off shows I have gotten he wasn’t a very nice man in the movies.
  3. The only Tom Cruise movie I have ever seen is the Mission Impossible where he sprints vertically on the Burj Al Arab, ( is that MI 3 or 4?). On a slightly related note I’ve always been curious was he always a Scientologist or is that just something he decided to try halfway through his career?
  4. The only performances of Brad Pitt that I have ever witnessed were his cameo on FRIENDS and the first quarter of the Benjamin Button movie, I feel asleep even before he slept with the girl in that barn(I remember the scene from the trailer).
  5. I only watched Pulp Fiction a year ago and until I did I always figured the movie would have had something to do with OJ(not Simpson, the source of Vitamin C) and book-writing.
  6. I just watched the new Star Trek movie coupla days ago and that was when a friend told me that William Shatner became famous because of Star Trek. I always thought it was cause of Sh*& my dad says.
  7. I also realized that the words a guy would most love to hear from a girl’s mouth are “If I were a lesbian”. I happen to have a slight crush on Zoe Saldana, but can you blame me ?

  9. I have not seen Moulin Rouge. Yes I know that makes me a pariah of sorts, but I dislike unhappy endings (if you know what I mean). What’s even worse, I watched the movie Australia, shot in Australia starring that wonderful Australian Hugh Jackman…and boy did that movie SUCK.
  10. I haven’t seen ET or any notable Steven Spielberg movie that wasn’t animated. In my head ET looks like Alf.
  11. I don’t think I’ve actually seen the entire Titanic movie. I’ve definitely seen the end and the beginning, whether I’ve seen the middle or not I’m really not sure. All I remember clearly about it are Leonardo dies and there’s that scene where they do this :

    This

    This

  12. As a result of this serious reflection I came to the conclusion that I need to upload, update, revamp, overhaul and restructure my pop-culture database in order to be a TV writer. So I’m going to go watch The Breakfast club, because I need to know what the deal is with Judd Nelson and nostril flaring.

Anybody else out there who is pop-culturally challenged as I am and is willing to study with/coach me?
