Life update and movies

People, guess what?

I’m turning 30 soon (days!). 30! Looking back I have not done all that bad, not great, but not that bad either.

I’m currently employed in an office role that pays more than most of the people in my organisation, I’m married, owns a place with 3 bedrooms (and a mortgage), have 2 cats, is in reasonable health (overweight, but working on it), and while I don’t have any hobbies, I’m doing over 200 minutes of exercise a week so that’s my fricking hobby time. Life is pretty damn OK.

Things I forgot to blog about:

Saw Looper and Dredd, both films were interesting; in the sense it really felt like a peak into a bigger, wider world.

Looper was one of those films that I liked while watching, but the more I think about it the more I get annoyed at the plot holes, the glaring gender issues, and the waste of really good ideas. I just – look, the cast was awesome, the plot is interesting, but the plot holes and gender issues within the film really got to me.

Dredd - I really enjoyed this film, really, really enjoyed it. I had forgotten what a short action film can accomplish, when done well. I really liked it, and I loved the female characters in this; I love how Anderson was competent, that Mama was so insane. I didn’t love the film, but liked enough that I’m definitely getting this on DVD.

Otherwise, reading a tonne of Avengers fics, yes, still reading it.

OK, way last minute than it ought to be, but: would it be OK if I quoted this entry and linked to it from the One Week One Band tumblr? http://naanima.livejournal.com/300409.html

I was actually just going to chop out a couple of my own comments and reblog those, without referring to the original entry or the rest of the discussion at all. But I think it's... fairly?... likely that I'll end up saying something in general about how the 4th wall works with various RPF fandoms. It won't be a primarily fandom audience, though, and it's a pretty old discussion, so if you don't want me to link it I'll just summarize some of the ideas and not attribute.

Oh and: happy birthday! XD
