The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Flaunt your optimism!


Star Trek Into Darkness in the cover of F*** magazine.


Also Simon Pegg talks about the villain John Harrison… and subtly disses Loki. LOL.

It’s been fun seeing people try to figure out who he is playing and all the time it just being a very simple answer. John Harrison is indicative of a thing going on in society today, which is the enemy within. Not…a multi-horned alien or another country or whatever. It’s the idea that the threat can be one of us and can come from inside.

Two sequels to Independence Day? The hell, Emmerich? And the names! ID Forever Part 1 and ID Forever Part II. They made me LOL. So, 20 years later the aliens come back because of a “distress call sent by the first wave of aliens”. A distress call? I thought the novelization said the whole species was in that mothership. Guess it’s time for retcon! Oh well.

Escape from New York gets a remake and it will possibly have a Brit playing Snake Plissken! It’s either Jason Statham or Tom Hardy now! And while I am used to see Statham in this kind of movie, I wouldn’t mind Hardy here.

Sherlock series 3 started filming and I might cry. Hey, Benedict Cumberbatch in Bristol near a bonfire and Amanda Abbington! Huh, Amanda being there makes me think John Watson is totally getting married. That or Amanda is Watson’s sister, Harry.



OMG it’s been a while since I talk about The Avengers but finally the box is here and it’s glorious. Even better than the movies, is all those extras! I want Thor’s ID, and Iron Man’s blueprints, and skinny Steve Roger’s picture and some much more! Some lucky bastard got it already and took pictures of all its content. There’s also talk about shawarma.

Another glorious thing is Tom Hiddleston’s photoshot and interview for Flaunt Magazine. I can’t. A person shoudln’t fangirl that much. Can’t be healthy. Specially because this mofo doesn’t only look good, but have words of wisdom to share~

I am an optimist. I choose to be. There is a lot of darkness in the world, there is a lot of pain and you can either choose to see that or you can choose to see the joy. If you try to respong positively to the world, you’ll spend your time better.


Let’s talk about Young Avengers! After the first five issues, we get a one-shot with Speed (Wiccan’s “spiritual” brother) and Prodigy from Uncanny X-Men. BTW, Young Avengers #3 was awesome and practically angst free! Good job, Gillen! Also, apparently I’m now smitten with McKelvie’s style. It grew on me… like fungus!

Here’s also a new Kick-Ass 2 trailer that showcases Hit-Girl~

OMG, DC is doing a documentary focusing on their villains called Necessary Evil… and it’s narrated by Sir Christopher Lee. Yeah, I’m totally watching that one.

  1. Good to hear positive reviews about Pacific Rim.

    If it’s true, I think Hiddleston would fit in well in a Muppet movie.

    I don’t watch the show, but I saw that Once Upon a Time is getting a Wonderland spinoff, and that actor Michael Socha (This is England tv, Being Human UK) is part of the cast.

    I wonder what will be added to the Iron Man 3 China version.

      @Diandra Rodriguez, I really really want Hiddles in the Muppet sequel. I truly do!
      Also, yes! Good thing there’s so much piracy in China that I may actually manage to watch this Iron Man 3 version online~

      @Diandra Rodriguez, I heard it’s only added scenes with Fan Bingbing. She is a big name in China, after all. It sounds iffy, especially on WHY they decided not to apply for co-production status.
