All the Comic-Con stuff is keeping me distracted, and I'm no longer in the habit of blogging after my hiatus, but today is Friday so I've got to pull myself together!
First, I want to just say a quick word on the Thor movie because the stills that have been released and everything I've seen so far makes me scream with joy in fangirl-esque fashion. Guys. LADIES. If you haven't seen the Thor in the Rain still yet, and Chris Hemsworth's rippling muscles, you are missing out. It isn't even that Chris Hemsworth is nice to look at, either, though he is. It's that there is no way, no possible way, that this movie would be good if he hadn't bulked up (hulked up?) the way he has.
Thor MUST be muscled. His greatest aspect as a god, as a hero, is his strength (although you and I both know that there are other aspects, and if you DON'T know about my thoughts in that regard, you can find them here!). Head over to GeekaChicas to read more of my thoughts on the movie and see the last three released pictures all in one place. PLUS a little comparative work of my own! (There is behind the scenes footage and my commentary on it here, as well. Hit the play button if it just swirls away and it will load.)
Now, I can go on about this all day (much in the same fashion as I might be able to go on all day about Icelandic), but believe me when I tell you that I'm watching this movie like a hawk. I also may or may not be secretly hoping for goats to show up in the film, even just in passing, but that's probably too much to ask...
That uhm, was less quick than I thought it was going to be. In fact, it seems like an entire blogpost of its own. SO, let me just stop here-- Next week, Tuesday, I promise to be back uh, relatively on-topic (if there is a real on-topic for this blog) with some more Helen-related conversation. Or let me put it this way-- if I'm not, then this does not bode well for my finishing up revisions on Helen, and you should all shame me.
Have a great weekend!
