So this has been possibly the best weekend for movies ever. First, I saw Tron: Legacy on Saturday. Then on Sunday morning, I went to go see Tangled with my 3-year old cousin and her mom and my family. I normally don't fangirl over animated Disney movies as a general rule, but Tangled is possibly the most adorable, amazing thing since sliced bread! Flynn reminds me of Remy LeBeau (amusing, since Disney owns both of them, now) and Rapunzel reminds me of my GF's character Dyre. It was like a gigantic ball of amazingly adorable cuteness. And Tron: Legacy just stroked all the right fangirl nerdy sides of me in just the right ways.
I don't know what to fangirl over more!
Flynn and Rapunzel are just the cutest, derpiest couple ever, but Kevin and Qorra tooootally remind me exactly of Dorjan and Dyre and make me want to ship them so very hard! They're not canon, but by God, they're my fanon!
On a side note, it's strange, but I sort of ended up feeling a little sorry for C.L.U in the end of the movie. o_O He obviously had seriously corrupted programming or something, but I really got the feeling he was like a poor, neglected child trying to impress his father and do really really well at what he thought would make Kevin proud of him, especially when he said something to the point of asking why Kevin chose Sam over him. He was still a little psychopath. But it was a bit of a sympathetic psychopathy.
And for the record SPOILER ALERT! but I so think that Tron isn't dead. Some of the guys in the theater were talking about his outcome in the movie as if they thought he drowned, but Hell no! His diodes reactivated themselves! He's not dead, he's gotta come back! Threequel, pls, Disney!!! I want Tron to come back and show how badass he is! I was wanting to see him do more good things. After all, he IS the title character, after all.
I wasn't surprised in the least when Kevin realized it was him, either. I'd read the speculation that he was before I saw it, sure, but the instant I heard him talk to Sam in the beginning, I was like "THAT WAS BOXLEITNER'S VOICE! FUCK YES! THAT'S TRON!" My sister and I spent the rest of the movie chanting "FIX'IMFIX'IMFIX'IM!!!!!!!" for the rest of the movie when he started pulling badass ninja moves on screen. >_> "ANTIVIRUS HIM!!! OAO" "Malware Bytes is an amazing thing!!!" "XD;;;" We were at least quiet enough to keep from bugging people around us. We know better then to ruin other peoples' movie-going. :>
Long story short, I recommend both of these movies to eeeeveryone who hasn't seen them yet! They're awesome! Now the only movie I have to see this holiday season is Narnia before I'll have all my movies watched. Missed Guardians of Gahoole when it came out, but I can always watch it on netflix or something.
Mostly, I just wanted to get rid of my previous journal, since it's been there for months. Nothing more to see here, really. La de dah.
