I was among the lucky ones to have X-Men Origins: Wolverine open in theatres last night. So here's the review.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is hitting cinemas around the globe, but will it live up to the standard set by Bryan Singer, or end up in the dumps with Brett Ratner’s X3?
 
Being a fan of the franchise I was really looking forward to another film, but after X-Men 3: The Last Stand I’ve learned to keep my expectations as low as possible, and I actually managed to enter the cinema without any big expectations.

I am surprised by the amount of negativity for this film, but I think the level of expectations has a lot to do with that; personally I just went to see a movie. And I had fun. There were a few small things that bothered me, some interactions, and maybe not enough time with one or two characters, and one scene featuring a sink that seems to have been put in for cheap laughs; they really could have left that scene out of the film.

There were worries about the inclusion of so many characters in the film, but I never felt that took anything away from the story, there’s really only one or two characters I felt got pushed aside. It was actually nice to see some new faces and learn something new about the familiar characters. This is helped a lot by the strong cast, the inclusion of so many characters could have easily have been overwhelming or just plain bad if the actors didn’t put their all into the few scenes they had. I found everyone’s effort to be top notch, and many new characters endeared themselves to me despite their short screen-time

Any continuity worries I had with regards to the X-Men films were snuffed out, save maybe one or two, but that’s nothing another movie or your imagination won’t take care off.

If nothing else you’re getting a good action kick, but I can’t help but hope that there would be an unrated, slightly bloodier, version when it comes out on DVD and BluRay, as some of the more violent scenes reminded you this is a PG-13 movie.
It’s hard to compare it to the previous films in the franchise, but one thing I can say for sure, it’s much better than X3. Considering all the aspects I will say that X2 still holds the top spot, but where Wolverine lands in comparison to the first X-Men movie is hard to say, go see it and make up your own mind.

4/5

Hugh Jackman on Late Night With Conan O'Brien )

Pictures of Hugh Jackman from Italian Vanity Fair.
WARNING: Ovaries may explode )

Hugh will be in the January edition of Empire as well. That's for the Wolverine movie though. Might have to shell out the money for the overpriced import and get that one. Unless any of the Brits on my flist would be willing to help me out? I will pay you!

Oh, and the first official Trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be attached to The Day the Earth Stood Still on December 12. They say it won't be released online until a few weeks later, but I'm hoping they won't wait to long.

It's been a while, so figured I'd do a Dean-picspam.

 A new image of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine has appeared online. It is believed to have come from the upcoming issue of Empire magazine, which also includes interviews with Jackman himself and director Gavin Hood.

My review of Red Sky at Morning.

The crowds have spoken, and based on the poll I figure I'll alternate between bulletpoint reviews and the long ones I did last year. Choiche of style basically boils down to how much I like the episode and/or how much time I actually have to write it.

And now it's finally time for my short review of the season opener.

I have a lot more in my head about this episode. But with the computer trouble and the new one airing tonight I figured this was the best way to go. Am looking forward to it.

Last episode before another hiatus. On the up side, when they come back they’ll go on till the finale.

It’s taken a while to write this review, but I needed some time to collect my thoughts.

After seing the picture of Dean in this quizz I went on a little hunt, and found a bunch of pics from 'Croatoan' that I haven't seen before. Check behing the cut for the goodies.
Dial-uppers be warned!

There are pictures from Ten Inch Hero up on their official site.

Two pictures... on is Jensen for sure, the other about 98% sure.

And a pic of Sean Patrick Flanery too!
Awwww. )

When my parents started this whole thing about wanting to move to a smaller apartement I figured they would take their time, and maybe I'd have a chance to start looking for one of my own before we actually had to leave the house. Seems I was way to optimistic. I've been honest with my parents, said I'm not happy with the situation, but I understand that they want something smaller. 
They put in on a bid on a place, it was a very nice flat, but they got outbid and left it alone. They've contacted the realtor so he can get started on the process of selling the house. As much as I love my parents, even in this house I sometimes feel that we're living to close, a little apartment won't help matters. It's also, that I've been moving back and forth from London for the last 3 years, I was finally looking forward to some stability, not having to think of moving for another year. And I'm uprooted again. I'm so tired of packing up my life and moving around. 
I feel like I can't fully relax here anymore, because I keep waiting to hear my parents tell me it's time to start packing again.
Just feeling a bit hopeless right now, only time will tell.

On the upside. I sent an application via post to Nordisk Film about a moth ago. So yesterday I checked the e-mail I set up for work purposes, and there was a mail from them asking me to send my CV via e-mail, so I would be easier to distribute in between the departments. This got my hopes up a little bit, hopefully there might be something for me there. It's in Oslo though, so I'd have to move, but to be honest since that would be moving to my own place I'd be happy. The more I think about it Oslo isn't a bad place to end up, I really didn't want to initially as I'm not to fond of Oslo, but I have friends there, and it's much easier to come home here to visit my family and friends than any of the other places. Cross your fingers for me?

[personal profile] beluga stopped by here yesterday, was very nice. We sat talking for a while, ended up watching an episode of 'Psych', followed by 'Supernatural: Faith', and the first two episodes of season 3 of 'House M.D.'.
On a side note: I've discovere that 'Psych' used a location that's been used in 'Supernatural'. I can provide photographic evidence if you wish.

Okay, and now for a little project I'm working on. Pimping norwegian artists. Behind the cut are three music videos from YouTube, featuring different Norwegian artists. Have a listen and look and see what you think. We all like finding new music don't we?

In here )

I'll keep posting vids like this every once in a while, have collected quite a few. Not all bands I like, but that doesn't mean you guys won't like 'em. Hope you find something that tickles your fancy.
