So, the Musketeers is on the BBC, 4 eps in to a 10 ep season. It's occasionally silly and somewhat formulaic, but it's also got a wonderfully diverse cast, tackles slavery in the 3rd episode, has two awesome, interesting female characters (who, I think completely failed the Bechdel test. GDI). And Peter Capaldi playing the ancestor to modern-day Malcolm Tucker.

Actually in general, (excepting D'artagnan, who is a bit of a blank character anyway) the acting is all pretty damn good. Capaldi, obvs. But Tom Burke's Athos is gorgeously conflicted and hates everything. Milady is great as the manipulative, secretive, possibly-not-completely-evil reason for Athos' manpain. The king is perfect and weak and petty and awful. I enjoyed Aramis' angsty turn last ep. It's still early days yet, but we've got the Porthos centric ep coming up, and then I'm hoping for a longer arc to round out the season, who knows.

ANYWAY. The reason for this post - beyond an attempt to enable people into the fandom (Everyone is ridiculously shippy. EVERYONE. Without the writing being Godawful slashbait.) - THE REASON is that it looks GREAT. And it's not just the filming (a lot on location, which really makes the difference, but even the sets look good). It's also the CLOTHES. I'd like to make a follow up Milady/Constance post, and one for the aristo's as well, but for now - the Musketeers:

I mentioned Deborah's style in one of my recaps. Basically it's colourful and insane office wear. I kind of love it even while I think most of her choices are hideous. She definitely pulls it off, and the quirky, in your face-ness suits her personality.


I do wonder whether this'll be interesting to anyone other than me... )

I've been reading bits of Jane Austen fic recently, and then I found this wonderful thing.

And then I decided I needed to watch all the adaps I haven't yet seen. Mostly it's all the Emmas, but there was a P&P before Ehle and Firth, and a recent Sense and Sensibility. Also I'm going to give the 1999 Mansfield Park a go because wiki says they changed all the things. (I despise Mansfield Park.)

And now, an awesome women being happy gif party!
(All yanked from dollsome's totally impromptu festival of awesome ladies.)

I blame tv for giving my unrealistic expectations in life.
I'm going to be twenty four in a month. That's only one more year of being in my early twenties.
I painted my nails a glittery red.

... These things may, or may not be related.



My festivid recs are up at nemo_recs, part two of 'toast' is going to be my yuletide recs, but it'll take me a while to work through all the fics I have bookmarked.



The Fall

Did I already rec this movie? The plot isn't perfect, it has loopholes that may drive you up the wall depending on how much that kind of thing annoys you.* However, the characters are good and the interaction between the leads is PERFECT. I've been thinking recently, 'precocious child' and 'surly teen' are two stock characters that need to fucking die. That said, the young girl in this is the RIGHT WAY TO SHOW CHILD CHARACTERS. Admittedly a lot of it is natural and adlibbed (for example the 'morphin3' bit was her own reading mistake that was then written in.) But in general, she's so perfect you want to hug her.

Anyway the main reason to watch this movie though, is that it is UTTERLY. COMPLETELY. ENTIRELY. GORGEOUS. The set pieces, the locations, the clothing, the EVERYTHING. MOST GORGEOUS MOVIE EVER.

* -- I've been thinking about how fandom people and non-fandom people critique/analyse movies. They're slightly arbitrary categories, but I do think there are differences re: plot based analysis, or theme based analysis. I didn't post about this before did I? I know I wrote a whole lot of stuff, but I don't think I ever got into a sense making post. I shall have to revisit.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Dominic Cooper, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Whishaw, Rupert Friend, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hardy ...

I post A LOT. I feel like I should be apologising? But, like, I won't be offended if I get de-friended or filtered. Hell, I won't even know if I'm getting filtered, so um, No, not apologising. I do have a warning in my (HAHA HIDDEN) profile. (Also I get far too much amusement out of the HAHA HIDDEN-ness. /am loser)

Right, so I read strive seek find yield by waldorph. (I love STXI fic that really thinks about the future, and incorporates all these awesome things about changing gender norms and society etc. it makes me wriggle with glee.)

Anyway, then then I had this urge to stare at pretty people in pretty suits... Because IDEK, my mind, it can be weirdly specific sometimes.

You know what? Can we have a story about a bunch of lesbians, with this one token gay male relationship, like a brother of one of the leads, or an ex-boyfriend from before she came out. And the brother's/ex's partner really hates her, for no apparent reason, and is all bitchy etc. and guess what?! The guys want a baby! And they want to use one of the lesbian's wombs to do so! And they want it right away and it's all weirdly sudden and no one seems to deal with emotional repercussions!

Let's do that, instead of, oh. THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Or hey, radical idea? LET'S NOT DO IT AT ALL.

In other words: The Broken Hearts Club = QAF except with Timothy Olyphant in. )

Perfect Getaway. (Total spoilers! and picspams) )

DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU... )



P.S.

I'm watching Air Force One whilst making this. BLOODY FUCK this movie is so hilarious. GARY OLDMAN RUSSIAN CRAZY TERRORIST FTMFW. I fucking hate Hans Solo what's his name. This movie is such a Blockbuster cliche. They're all so intent and hilarious. Glenn Close is cracking me up and hey Cavill the cylon is part of the American goverment...whaddyaknow.

Gah I'm sorry, I'm rooting for the sneaky fucking Russians...ALL THE WAY. GARY OLDMAN FTMFW.


P.P.S

In case anyone was wondering I didn't pick them randomly, it's a six degrees thing. Bale and Oldman in Batman, Oldman and Ryder in Dracula, Ryder and Jolie in Girl, Interrupted. SEE? I HAS A PLAN.

Here is my picspam for [livejournal.com profile] whedonland showcasing the Adelle/Dominic love from the first few episodes in Season 1 Dollhouse, (in random order).

Not really much of a theme going on here and it's a bit more macro-ey than picspam-ey if that matters.
