Hmmmm.

Well, not as good as I was hoping, not as awful as it might have been? There were awesome things about it, like the gender balance and MELINDA MAY and many subversions of gendered tropes and ♥MELINDA MAY♥, but some things just felt really…off. To me.

 I'm tentatively supposed to go see Captain America with friends on the 25th or 26th or something.

...

I don't know if I can wait that long. 8|a I might just sneak in and see it on opening day by myself like a loser, and then see it again later, because even if it's not super-special-awesome-amazing I doubt I wouldn't like it enough to hang out with friends and catch a second go. And I would get to bask in Steve Rogers being Steve Rogers all over my screen just a few days earlier. :D

Also, Chris Evans being Steve Rogers. I didn't really know anything about Chris Evans until he was cast as Steve except that he was also Johnny Storm, and wtf kind of sloppy internal continuity was that? 8| But then I started reading interviews about his initial reluctance and multiple-times-refusal of the role and the anxiety and sensitivity and really just his down-to-earth personality, and the more I did the more I liked him, and the more I felt that he was the right kind of person to play the part.
 
I've been avoiding spoilers and clips, but I did see the trailer, and seeing him in action--peeking over the shield making 0_o eyes at Peggy Carter after she shot at him, all the other soldiers diving away from the grenade and Steve, of course, of course, being the one to fling himself on top of it--only reinforced that feeling.
 
PLEASE TO BE BEING A GREAT STEVE ROGERS, CHRIS EVANS. ;A; Please to be being a great movie, Captain America. ...Or at least a good superhero movie. :|a
 
...Also, please to continue being the cutest star-struck fanboy over RDJ, Chris Evans. It is THE most adorable thing.

“He’s so great. I can’t say enough about him, I really can’t. I didn’t know what to expect going in to work with him. He’s so talented and he’s got so much charisma and persona. I can honestly say, of all the movie stars I’ve worked with, he’s the one that when he comes on set, you really feel like, ‘Man — this guy’s a movie star!’ You just feel it. When he comes in a room he just owns the oxygen.”

“I had to do a scene with him the other day where I was just nervous, it was just me and him, and I was just terrified. It’s Robert Downey Jr.! And he’s just, you know, every little take he gives you a fist bump, a little thumbs up, and it just changes your whole day. It probably means nothing in his mind but I go back to my trailer, like, giddy. He really is something else.”
--Chris Evans on Robert Downey, Jr. (Avengers)

/dead of cute

I can’t wait to see how this translates on screen. I think it’s potentially a really interesting change to the dynamic from the comics, that Steve is so much younger than Tony in the movies. From their personalities—Steve being such a down-to-earth working class boy and Tony being so high-profile and literally brilliant and an uber-charismatic celebrity and very aware of it—I wouldn’t be surprised if Steve was dazzled by Tony, while being irritated with him at the same time for being high-maintenance and also an arrogant dick. XD
 
In another news, I finally powered through the five-hour 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice last night (conked out at around 4 AM, WORTH IT), and then I woke up in the morning and there was a 27,000 word Charles/Erik P&P AU on my flist. :D :D :D Three cheers for Serendipity~!

Oh holy god. I should so be working on a project, I've get a headache and backache from sleep-deprivation, but instead I am FREAKING DYING over the awesome that is THIS bad-quality, leaked Iron Man 2 trailer.

GO. WATCH IT.

And...

*whimpers* Why isn't this out right now? I mean, seriously! I will be dead of anticipation by May 7, 2010!

I love the pretty action shots of the second half, but the first half just stole my heart right away. Or, well, I guess Tony just stole the whole thing back, since other fandoms/people/things have been chipping away at it since he stole it in the first movie two years ago. *g* Really, how inconvenient! I've already been re-reading my favorite comics fics this week, both Marvel and DCU, I will have nothing to sustain me!

But okay, the first half the trailer. The utter endearing snark of Tony, he is so priceless, "Sir! I'm going to have to ask you to exit the donut!" "I told you I don't want to join your little secret boyband" "I'm not sure you're not a figment of my imagination." OMG, I'M D-E-D DED! And then the...trial or whatever it was! I'm pretty impressed they're actually addressing that issue so well, it looks SO EXCELLENT, god there is no end to my squee!

I...am kind of disconcerted by Don Cheadle as Rhodey, I have to admit. I kind of lol at the poor people who are going to show up to the movie not knowing there's been an actor change and who won't be able to connect the characters. They're (obviously!) very different, physically, and from what little we saw of Cheadle it looked like he was playing Rhodey a bit differently from Terrence Howard.

...But OMG WAR MACHINE!!! :DDDDDD
