Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] john_amend_all:

1. Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.
2. Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and — you guessed it — list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)
3. I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.
4. Bravo! Have a cookie.

The next time this comes up I think I’m not going to do it the john_amend_all way, because it’s really hard. I ended up just giving up on one of them. Anyway, my fandoms were:

Doctor Who
John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme
Legends of Tomorrow
Phantom 2040

The results were:

You know, I’m starting to suspect there are only, like, fifty poems on that site or something. “I have a Bird in Spring” came up twice! Still, no Robert Service for once.

I saw two films in the last week, and enjoyed one of them a lot more than the other. MASSIVE SPOILERS for both.

Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice )

Zootropolis )

Well, some of these got a bit away from me. One of them ended up a double drabble…

(Feel free to suggest some more; this was fun.)

Keep meaning to say -- shortly after seeing Muppets Most Wanted I saw two reviews claiming it wasn't as good as the last one. They are wrong.

The Muppets was good, but it was kind of "Hey, remember the Muppets? You liked the Muppets, didn't you? Okay, here's all the things you liked about the Muppets. Remember now?"

Muppets Most Wanted, IMO, was more "Okay, we know you like the Muppets. Now here they are doing something different."

Just realised I've got out of the habit of doing a write-up of films I've watched. So here's a quick comment on the last three films I saw at the cinema. All contain spoilers.

Iron Man 3 )

Star Trek Into Darkness )

Man of Steel )

(Contains very mild spoilers for Muppets Most Wanted; nothing you wouldn't pick up from the basics of the pre-publicity so far.)

So I've just learnt that back when The Muppets was still a vague idea Jason Segel had for a film called The Greatest Muppet Movie Of All Time!, Ain't It Cool got hold of a script. And one of the concepts that didn't make it into the film we eventually saw was "Ms. Piggy ends up in jail. In the cell next to her is Charles Grodin, still incarcerated after The Great Muppet Caper."

Now I can think of two reasons that scene didn't make it in. 1) The whole "Piggy in jail" storyline, whatever it involved, was apparently abandoned and 2) Nicky Holiday was arrested in London, so why would he be in jail in Hollywood? (Or Paris, if this scene was before they got the gang back together.)

Muppets Most Wanted is going to be set in London. And it involves Kermit being mistaken for a criminal.

That was, well, amazing.

Or, as it's apparently known in this country, Avengers Assemble (although they apparently didn't make that decision early enough to make an actual Avengers Assemble logo, or even borrow Marvel UK's one, so they just bashed it out in a metal-effect font and called it a title screen.)

Apart from that niggle (and a couple of other niggles), awesome!

Having missed X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern, a quick check of my local listings confims that I've missed Captain America: The First Avenger as well...

(Unlike the previous one, the title and default frame give it away...)

So ... movieverse Prof X is still British, but Moria Mactaggart is now an American CIA agent?

The phrase "What the flip?" springs to mind...

I'm not usually a fan of romantic comedies, but there's something about this one that interests me...

Hey, I saw this on Monday, and never posted a review!
I say thee SPOILERS! )

Cool, it's got the Ultimates' "This-is-what-a-WWII-superhero-would-actually-wear" costume, which was probably the best thing in Ultimates! And it looks like it doesn't have Ultimates' "A-WWII-superhero-would-actually-be-kind--of-a-jerk" thing.
