*rubs hands together* Now I have to decide which fandoms to use...
So if we were to still meetup for the movie on June 14, where should we do that?
Where do you think we should meet? (Select as many as apply)
I hope we can narrow something down by the end of 2012. :)
I really liked it!
It is not unproblematic, but when is a superhero movie ever unproblematic, even The Avengers. So don't look to me for well-thought-out meta analysis on what they did right and wrong vis-a-vis the comics or serious issues. I'm not fannishly built that way - I'm looking forward to my friends who ARE built that way to make those posts, to which I will probably respond oh-so-thoughtfully: 'THIS.'
Before my big list of likes/dislikes, let me describe my opinion process:
Reboot? WHY. I may boycott this --> Hmm, Spectacular Spider-Man (the toon) is starting to sell me on Peter/Gwen coming first, and it IS canon --> I write two Peter/Gwen SSM fics and I can multi-ship Peter with either Gwen or MJ --> Emma Stone is in it? As GWEN, not MJ? Her Easy A character is such an MJ, but okay --> After seeing the Social Network, I can see Andrew Garfield's appeal --> COMIC-CON HAPPENS AND ANDREW GARFIELD STEALS MY HEART --> Tumblr gifsets and video clips make me fall for Emma/Andrew --> People at advance screenings being very positive --> Finding out from an f-lister about how the secret!ID plot is handled --> I have to see this opening day!
( Now for the not-very-meta, but definitely spoilery, thoughtsCollapse )
What were your thoughts? Link me to your reviews/meta/posts. I didn't come out of the film with any decent plot bunnies, but you may be seeing fic from me this summer...
Is it time to plan a Man of Steel premiere week meetup for next June? I know some people (me) need about a year's notice to plan trips.
Maybe someone else is already doing this and I missed it?
Anyway, if no one else is planning it already, I guess I volunteer to organize. :) Give me suggestions for a location range, date, time, etc.
All comers, not just the 2007-2008 group, whoever is interested, please comment. Pass it along to those who may have left LJ. I'll try to start PM-ing people who I think might be interested that I don't hear from as well.
