adventures in geekdom

The blog of a twentysomething who is finally unleashing her inner geek after stifling it for the majority of her adolescence.

Gotye never sounded so truthful.

*EDIT: Yes, I know referred to Han Solo as “Hans.” IT’S BEEN A LONG WEEK, OKAY? xD

I finally watched Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and all of the critics who wrote up great reviews when it first opened in theaters were right: I’m definitely kicking myself for not having seen this movie in theaters when I had the chance. I’m sure it would’ve looked AMAZING on the big screen. Still, it was a wonderful movie that was so visually delicious I could’ve eaten it up. I’d heard that some people weren’t into the ending — that it wasn’t very realistic — but I thought both Scott and Ramona had learned what they needed (for example, “Scott has gained the power of SELF-RESPECT!”) in order to have a stable and successful relationship with each other. Sometimes endings can be sweet and realistic, though it’s usually a difficult feat to pull off in general. I honestly with more movies were made like this, because it had me within the first five minutes.

Oh, and I want the soundtrack. Really bad. iTunes account, Y U NO FULL OF MONEY??

Also, I have now seen both Episode IV: A New Hope and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. So far I love R2-D2 more than everyone else, which usually happens to me while watching movies. For example, when watching The Boyfriend’s favorite movie, Alien, I honestly only cared if the cat made it out alive. No, Sigourney Weaver, I don’t care if you make it out alive. But that cat of yours had better survive or I will cut someone. I also may or may not continually laugh out loud at how constantly hilarious C-3PO and R2-D2’s friendship is.

Hans Han/Leia are absolutely killing me — it hurts so good. There’s multiple reasons why I love them more than Anakin/Padme, the main one being that the latter pairing drove me crazy with their sappy puppy-eyes and very awkward and staged interaction; at least, that’s how it came off to me. Sadly, their “relationship” was a big reason why I had trouble enjoying the prequel movies, however, I must take this opportunity to thank Ewan McGregor for making it all worth it. Ah well, I’m loving the original trilogy so far and I’m still glad I watched all of the movies in order.

College has started up again, and while procrastination is always fun I’m not going to try and stick to a posting schedule this semester. Just think of it as getting extra-long blog posts, instead of mini-updates. I wish those of you who are also back in school a successful semester/year/etc., and I hope those of you who are still on vacation or out of school altogether suffer miserably for your crimes are enjoying yourselves!

See you soon! :)
