Last weekend, I went to see Wonder Woman. It was a very good movie, but I honestly didn't see it as some ground breaking masterpiece - which I didn't dare to say on Tumblr because they would've ripped my head off. It was a very good, very well filmed movie and Gal Gadot and Chris Pine had amazing chemistry, I ship Wondertrev like whoa. BTW, I have to buy the novelization because that part's even more heartbreaking there! Apparently, Chris Pine signed a multiple movie deal, so I'm curious what they'll do with his character in the future.

It's official! Chris Pine joined Wonder Woman as Colonel Steve Trevor, Gal Gadot's love interest and Justice League liaison! Source. YES! YES! YES! DC, NOW you have my attention. NOW I cannot wait for WW! OMG, gimme!

Looks amazing! I really love it when Chris Pine plays heroes going against all the odds and winning. And the fact that it's based on a true story? Fantastic! And I already like the main 'ship!

I'm not sure if this movie's for me, love triangles are SO not my thing, but it's sci-fi and it features Chris Pine, so... *hands*

Chris Pine is in talks to play Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's (Gal Gadot's) love interest in DC movies! Link. How awesome is that? I mean, I was already interested in WW because of Gal Gadot, she was fantastic in Fast and Furious, but now? Now I'm over the moon! How awesome will it be to see Chris Pine and Gal Gadot as lovers? *dolphin noises* Please, gods of Hollywood, make it happen!

Went to see the new Jack Ryan movie with the twins today. And it's really good. I liked it as much as Jack Reacher or The Bourne Legacy, which means a lot. It had just the right amount of smarts and action - there were several great and tense, edge-of-the-seat moments. Also, I'm a huge fan of Chris Pine, so... Keira Knightley was pretty cool too and even though I'm not the biggest fan of Kevin Costner, his Harper was great, especially his fondness of Jack Ryan.

I actually feel like reading some of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan books, now that I can imagine him as Chris Pine *_* I usually read books that have been turned into movies only when I actually like the actor playing the main character. And I really, really, REALLY like Chris Pine.

I would give this movie 8/10 or 4/5. It was worth seeing in the cinema. We had to choose between this and Robocop and I'm now glad we chose Jack Ryan.

Trailers seen: 300: The Rise of the Empire, Non-Stop, Need for Speed, The Monument Men. Out of those, only Non-Stop with Liam Neeson made me actually want to go and see it in the cinema. The rest - eh.

Wow. Just... wow. After a slow beginning, the movie gets going and never stops, not for a minute. Once Frank and Will took their locomotive and started chasing the runaway train, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Talk about suspense! When they ran into the curve at more than the advisable speed, my heart was racing like crazy! Awesome!

And the characters. What I loved about Denzel Washington's Frank was, that he never judged Chris Pine's Will, not even when Will told him about the restraining order his wife had against him. Frank advised, he cautioned, but he never, ever judged. That was awesome. And Rosario Dawson's Connie - wow! What a woman! And hey, that was Fusco from PoI! And Ned was also awesome, such a cowboy character. Wonderful!

I'm so glad I have got the movie on DVD! I will have to show it to my mom, she will love it!

Great movie, I don't care what people say. And I still maintain that Benedict Cumberbatch was the best part of it. He was fantastic. He exuded so much menace, it was really, really scary! My favorite scene in the whole movie was the Khan vs. the Klingons fight. Wow, just WOW! I watched it like ten times in a row \o/

Regarding the character of Kirk, you can see that he really needed to grow up. He got the Enterprise at the end of the first movie, because a) the fleet was basically decimated and b) it was a PR stunt - he was the hero who saved Earth, after all. But Pike was right, he really wasn't up to it yet, he needed to grow up first. He was a good man who risked everything for his friends, but he wasn't mature enough yet. Throughout this movie, you could see him weighing his options more than once: what would the old me do vs. what would the wisest course of action be. Together with Pike he lost his training wheels.

The funniest thing? McCoy's awful flirting with Carol Marcus. LOL!

Also, whoever was responsible for the Czech dub should be fired on spot. Benedict's dub sounds like a castrate, so high-pitched. Terrible!

Oh, Chris Pine and his wonderful voice, so cuddly, giving me warm fuzzies... *happy sigh* And Hugh Jackman as the Australian Easter Bunny! Gosh, I have never heard him speak with his real accent. Sweet! And I wouldn't have even recognized Jude Law as Pitch Black!

I felt incredibly sorry for Jack Frost, that no one could see him, that no one believed in him even though he was giving children so much joy. The fact that he and Pitch Black were basically in the very same situation, they just handled it differently: Pitch started hating the whole world while Jack never stopped giving joy. And yet, I felt sorry for both of them.

And that's the reason why I think the ending should have been different. Because Pitch was punished for his deeds - but he didn't learn his lesson. He ended up locked away again. And to be honest, I felt sorry for him again. Because, yeah, he went about it in a totally wrong way, but he just wanted people to believe in him and he wanted the Guardians to feel what it was like to stop existing for the children. I think they should've made him learn his lesson - but at the same time, the Guardians should've recognized the need for the Boogeyman...

First trailer for Chris Pine's Jack Ryan, directed by Kenneth Branagh. I hope this becomes a hit. Chris Pine deserves it.

I really need to get Surrender Dorothy on DVD. And the #1 reason?



Chris Pine playing a sweet gay man. He's fantastic in this role. People who say he's a bad actor should really watch him in this part!

And suddenly I feel like watching Blind Dating again. Another movie where he's a cutie pie! He has the most beautiful smile... *_*

Re-watched ST 2009 again. Wonderful, truly wonderful. I love JJ Abrams' style - it is the man who brought us Fringe, after all!

My favorite bits?

* The sequence that starts with McCoy bringing Kirk on board of the Enterprise. HILARIOUS and epic at the same time. Kirk's allergic reaction. McCoy's pursuit of him! And then Kirk being all smart and getting Pike to sound Red Alert and raise the shields which saved everybody's life.

* Kirk and Old!Spock meeting Scotty! Again, so cool and HILARIOUS! Simon Pegg's always funny but here he outdid himself!

I can't wait to get my hands on the new movie and watch Benedict do his thing again. He's breathtaking there *_*

DeForest Kelley vs. Karl Urban as Star Trek's Leonard 'Bones' McCoy! What a perfect choice, wasn't it?

I also got my hands on the Star Trek Into Darkness novel by Alan Dean Foster and so far, I'm loving it. The snark between Kirk and Bones while they run through the red forest is hilarious!

And you know what? Since the 2009 movie, when I read the ST:TOS tie-ins - very good books, BTW - I see the present actors in the roles, not the old ones. Because, as wonderful and intriguing as the old show was - and it really was the best ST - the acting was atrocious, especially William Shatner's. Chris Pine is so much better!

My reaction? Benedict, BENEDICT, BENEDICT, BENEDICT, BENEDICT!!! OH MY GOD, HE NAILED IT! Purrfection pure. Gosh... Whenever he was on-screen, I looked pretty much like this: ♥_____♥

Jim, I'm a doctor, not a ...! )

I would give it 9/10. Loved it! And I want to see it again next week, if possible! \o/

There's a wonderful, wonderful interview with Zachary Quinto for the OUT magazine in which he talks about Chris Pine. And only about him. About Chris' house and the color of his eyes and it's WONDERFUL, did I mention that already?

What kind of a friend is Chris? What does he mean to you?

He is fiercely intelligent. He is endlessly curious about himself and the world around him. He is really compassionate. He is really reliable. Authentic. Loyal. Enormously talented. I have been very lucky to work with people by and large whom I would love to spend time with outside of work. The cast of Star Trek—and Chris in particular—really rank at the top of that list, because we all experienced something so profound and transformed as a result of that together. And to watch what Chris has done with that has really inspired me. I’m grateful to be his friend.

Aww... Just, aww... I just adore their friendship!

Over the years, Pine and Quinto’s off-screen friendship has helped them establish an on-screen rapport — the two met before they were cast in “Star Trek,” at an event writer-producer Norman Lear organized to showcase his copy of the Declaration of Independence.

“I remember feeling, as I got to know Chris more, so impressed by his intelligence, which isn’t always the case with such a traditional leading man,” Quinto said. “I remember being pleasantly, not surprised, but …”

“You thought I was just a dumb blond,” Pine interrupted.

LOL, Chris! Bless him. Yes, I'm a Kirk/Bones shipper but it seems like those fics, the really good ones, are pretty much tapped out these days. I guess I might give a try to Kirk/Spock in the end after all... I think the actors make me love their characters even more :)

Oh... My!

Star Trek Into Darkness is premiering today in Sydney and Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban are there to promote the movie, together with JJ Abrams. And this is them goofing around on a beach. I just adore the bit where Zach is taking pictures of Chris and Karl. Also, Chris Pine looks AH-mazing!

OMG, have you see these? Especially Benedict Cumberbatch's pic looks AMAZING!



Kirk and Spock cut! )


Wow! Just... wow! I predict that Benedict will own the movie. His presence is like... *hands* Just fantastic. And he looks so mysterious and dangerous in the pic *dolphin noises*

Well, I tagged it as "films on DVD" but I actually didn't watch it on DVD. I do own it, but as I found out today, the DVD doesn't work. So, I watched the file I downloaded some time ago. I hope I get a refund without needing to send it back to the UK, it wouldn't be worth it...

Now, about the movie. Gosh, The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement is totally ridiculous, over the top, nonsensical and whimsical - yet I loved, LOVED all the bits with Anne Hathaway and Chris Pine. Gosh, they had SMOKING chemistry! I loved Mia and Nicholas so much that I actually went searching for fics! Unfortunately, I found only 5 on AO3! HOW?! I mean, I don't read het fics but, gosh, I would gobble these with a spoon! Mia and Nicholas were sweet and funny and hot and... purrfect! It's been some time since I was this smitten with an official het pairing. I want to coo at them like a demented bird *happy sigh*

And besides these two, I liked Andrew best. "Now I just need to tell mummy." LOL. He was so sweet and good and lovely. And I bet he and Mia will make great friends...

Conclusion: A ridiculous movie. Totally saved by Anne Hathaway and Chris Pine and hilarious one-liners like "I look like a moose. I have antlers!" or "Should I shoo him? Or should I shoo him? Just tell me who I should shoo and I'll shoo."

BUT HOW CAN THERE BE ALMOST NO FICS?! Explain this injustice to me!
