tellitslant: amanda tapping being a dorkface at the camera (nicole - wow)
Excuse me while I squee like whoa.

Nicole Kidman cast as Mrs. Coulter.

It's kind of sad that I don't have my own copy of The Golden Compass, but I think I may be stealing [livejournal.com profile] selkies' tonight.

Hmm, apparently Paul Bettany is up for Lord Asriel... I'm not as squeeful over that, but he could do, yes.

ETA: IMDB says that Pullman wanted Kidman and wants Jason Isaacs for Asriel and Samuel L. Jackson as Lee Scorsby. Hells yes. ("Get these motherfucking bears off my motherfucking balloon!" ...sorry, wrong movie.)

omg three weeks to Comic-Con. *squees a little*

Anyways. If Margot Kidder had had a cameo, my Superman experience would have been complete. )

And, um, looking up Margot Kidder to see what she's doing now has brought me the vaguely disturbing discovery that she was in an ep of The L Word. Um. *blink*

...in which Jean Grey takes a page out of Willow Rosenberg's book, several fights from the comics are re-envisioned, and surprisingly enough, Storm is the best-written character. )

I did have several moments of pure fangirl squee, and if you did not stay after the credits then OMGWTF it'll probably be up on YouTube shortly but, awesome. Still, it suffered from, well, lack of depth. It was way too short for what it tried to encapsulate and while it set up several awesome moments, it didn't deliver on them. I enjoyed it, but I didn't particularly like it, especially not as a comics fangirl. Basically, it feels amateur - loads of potential, but not enough followthrough. It should have been better - and longer, given its scope. (ps Ian McKellen was so fantastically camp I think the screen was flaming. So much love.)

Props to the filmmakers for never actually using the phrase "The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants," although I possibly would have given a lot to hear Ian McKellen say it.

In other news, I may have accidentally bought "City of Death" and "Pyramids of Mars." I figure I ought to at least show willing to purchase some of the stuff I download. Karma, you know.

I will possibly have more to say tomorrow. Right now I am going to bed.
