Yesterday I went to the Motor City Comic Con with my sis and her new ~male friend~ oooooohhhhh. Was gonna get an autograph from Betsy Russell but I forgot my DVD case and I didn't want to pay $30 for a signed picture of her busting out of a tanktop (SORRY, TOTALLY WOULD HAVE BEEN WORTH IT FOR COSTAS, THO, NOM NOM NOM). So instead I bought two Resident Evil shirts (one Umbrella Corps and one green herb that is going to be mistaken for pot) and saw some cosplay (there was an RE group including Hunk, some storm troopers of course, some Star Fleet, Rita from Power Rangers, and a tween dressed as Ciel in drag) And then while I was trying to buy Robo Geisha, Ichi The Killer, and the Gantz live action movie, I had an interesting exchange with the booth owner.

At first I thought he was just staring at my boobs, but then he asked, "You a Trigun fan?" and I realized, oh right, that's where the Trigun logo on my shirt is. So of course I said, "Oh yeah, I love Trigun," to which he replied, "How much?"

Which was like...uhhhhhhh what?? We started talking about the lately released movie and he showed me they had a bootleg. Then he gave me a discount on the movies I was already buying and gave me the movie for free! Haven't watched it yet so I dunno if it's a handcam or something (it didn't even have box art, lol) but I'll probably get a real version if it comes out here anyway. But still, it was rather unexpected! Gotta wear my Trigun shirt more often!?

After the con we went to see THOR. I enjoyed it (especially enjoyed the mancandy) and especially liked Loki, like the rest of LJ. Noms. But there was something about it that seemed a little... juvenile? Not like fart jokes but like the writers had no idea what to do with certain parts. And the ending pissed me off.


And speaking of juvenile afterwards TK and I came home and watched Green Hornet <3 It was actually pretty interesting to hear from Rogen and...the other writer, whoever that was, talk about how they wanted to make a hero movie that was all about insecurity and jealousy, traits normally reserved for villains (Loki??). Also appreciated how they recognized that in most hero movies the female characters are unimportant except to be saved and the romances are underdeveloped and unnecessary (Jane!?) and that's why they wanted heros that had no idea what to do if not for Lenore. Interesting to see the two movies back to back, that's for sure.

Omg, Green Hornet. OH MY GOD, GREEN HORNET!!!

Someone on my Flist say you have seen it. I'm still not sure of what I just watched, except that I spent the entire time laughing my ass off or squealing or maybe swearing a few times. I'm usually not a Seth Rogen girl but he was such a little asshole, for some reason I loved the dumb goober. And Kato was like, omg, orgasmic. Please to be casting him in every movie from now on, kthnx.

It was all just so bizarre and stupid and damn entertaining. To speak nothing of the BLATANT HOMOEROTIC SUBTEXT. And not even in that "Eames kicks Arthur's chair, darling," kind of way, I mean in the Britt bends Kato over the foosball table and Kato punches him in the balls to get him off kind of way. JFC people. I took my BROTHER and my MALE FRIEND to this movie!

And once TK and I got home I had this horrible thought, that what I really watched was one 90 minute "gay is gross and that's why we're inviting you to laugh at it" joke. And ugh I really don't like that thought. I'd kind of like to find an interview where it's addressed...?

Ok one of you has to have seen it. What did you think??
