tellitslant: (potter - bella - burn baby burn)
So after standing in line for a truly hilarious amount of time yesterday (we, um, got in line for the 7pm Imax show and just shuffled up until we were head of the line for our show, at 10, which was delayed but had 3D unlike the previous showing, so I am on very little sleep and lots of leftover jellybeans), guess which movie I REALLY REALLY want to talk about now?

OMG THERE IS A GET SMART TRAILER OUT OMG OMG YAY.

I am sooo excited about the Get Smart movie, seriously, because I LOVE GET SMART and this role has just been waiting for Steve Carell. He looks disturbingly perfect in the trailer, though I think they need to give Anne Hathaway that Agent 99 bob before she's exactly right. ;) Alan Arkin as Chief is great too. YAY GET SMART.

*cough*

So about that other movie... the short version is, I loved it. The slightly longer version is, I loved it, with one major exception. The looong version is behind the cut for movie-spoilers, and contains mild spoilers for Book Six as well as unfounded and possibly disproved-by-this-movie spec for Book Seven. )I found it quite captivating for most of the film, which is a feat considering the suger/caffeine/booze/general squee fuelling me by that time, heh.

Helena Bonham-Carter is like unto a god of creepified sexiness. Ditto Jason Isaacs. As usual, I find myself wanting to close my eyes and listen to Alan Rickman read the phone book.

...I really am about halfway to talking myself into seeing it again here. (In fairness, it's damn hot out. Again. And air-conditioning is good. Quick, convince me otherwise or I may see it again...)
