Un autre rec post mastoc rédigé pour la communauté [livejournal.com profile] amour_de_fans

Je ne suis pas sûre que ce soit tout à fait une rec parce que je n'imagine pas que vous soyez passées à côté, disons que c'est plutôt à la fois un chant d'amour, des bouts de réflexion désordonnés et une espèce de tentative de discussion mais dont je n'ai pas vraiment formulé les problématiques (je vous promets que ce sera intéressant quand même, restez avec moi).



C'est l'histoire de moi dans une salle de cinéma, juste avant que ne soit projeté Age of Ultron, face à la bande annonce de Mad Max: Fury Road sur fond de "Dies Irae". Les yeux scintillants, je me tourne vers ma comparse et décrète: "Ça a l'air DÉBILE, je vais aller le voir EN COURANT, je vais CAMPER DEVANT LA SALLE en attendant que ça sorte!!!" Je suis suis fan inconditionnelle (et fine connaisseuse) de films d'action des années 80-90, et de grandes fresques de série B (Riddick je t'aime), ce film a l'air déjà taillé pour moi. Et après la séance, il s'est finalement avéré que le meilleur moment de Avengers: Age of Ultron pour moi a été la bande-annonce de Mad Max: Fury Road.

C'est l'histoire d'un hold-up cinématographique par un papy australien à moitié cinglé, qui a aussi réalisé un des meilleurs films d'animation au monde (ceux qui disent que Happy Feet n'a rien à voir thématiquement avec Mad Max n'ont pas vraiment vu Happy Feet. C'est peut-être un post pour une autre fois, mais Happy Feet est une comédie musicale avec des pingouins, mais aussi un film de science-fiction, une odyssée épique, et une fable écolo, avec des beaux mouvements de caméra maîtrisés qui trahissent le vrai bon réalisateur derrière -- et pas juste un enchaînement de plans caméra fixes dans lesquels des bestioles hystériques qui parlent ne font que s'agiter, à la Madagascar).

C'est l'histoire d'un chef-d'œuvre, mais aussi d'une impossibilité. C'est l'histoire d'un genre qui se meurt, de Hollywood qui fait constamment de la merde avec son pillage nostalgique et sa course à la licence, et d'un renouveau au singulier, qui ne changera sans doute pas la donne et qui nous rappelle surtout ce qu'on a perdu. Ou peut-être est-ce effectivement une pousse verte porteuse d'espoir dans un grand désert radioactif et stérile. Allez savoir.

C'est l'histoire d'un personnage féminin, héroïne d'un film d'action post-apo, chose tristement inimaginable de nos jours, planquée en scred sous une grosse licence avec un nom d'homme.

C'est l'histoire de quelques crétins misogynes sur Internet, qui se plaignent justement de la trop grande "féminisation", à leur goût, du film de dudebros qu'ils attendaient, alors que le film n'est même pas encore sorti. L'info est relayée et fait tache d'huile, et voilà que des femmes qui n'avaient aucune intention d'aller voir Mad Max s'y intéressent soudain. Puis c'est l'histoire d'interminables articles et débats sur internet occultant presque la qualité du film en lui-même, oui Mad Max est féministe, non Mad Max n'est pas féministe, Mad Max est un peu féministe mais pas trop, si, non, on s'en fout.

Enfin, c'est l'histoire de moi, encore, de retour dans une salle obscure, nerveuse comme jamais, m'attendant à tout moment à être déçue, et d'une déception qui n'arrive miraculeusement pas. Moi qui m'en prends plein la tête, avec de vraies belles explosions même que j'avais oublié comment ça faisait, moi qui avais failli annuler mon abonnement à la carte UGC tellement 2014 avait été vide en bons films et qui ne croyais plus du tout au cinéma. Moi, à nouveau cinéphile, les larmes aux yeux quand a défilé le générique de fin.

Je ne vais pas recommencer ici toute la discussion sur Mad Max et le féminisme, je trouve qu'il y a eu déjà suffisamment d'encre qui a coulé sur le sujet (ceci dit, si ça vous intéresse quand même ou que vous êtes passées à côté je vous mettrais quelques liens d'articles dessus que j'ai trouvés intéressants à la fin de ce post), j'aimerais plutôt qu'on discute, si vous le voulez bien, de pourquoi Mad Max est ressorti à ce point dans le paysage filmique cette année.

Ooooh this is good stuff -- this is EXACTLY the kind of eroticism and sensuality I like (bonus points for the woman in power, hell yes), Tom Burke is delicious in it (especially with that kind of lighting dear god, and might I add, his full frontal is VERY NICE), wow wow wow, FIVE STARS

Title: We Can't Stop
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sevenswells
Artist/Song: "We Can't Stop" by Bastille (Miley Cyrus cover)
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Summary: Sherlock, John and Mary make my heart bleed. Although this vid is more about Sherlock and his relationship to John that's bound to change since John is marrying Mary; so it's sort of slashy and sort of angsty idek leave me alone
Rating: Gen
Spoilers: This is pretty much all of the Sign of Three that I crammed into one fanvid, it's even in chronological order
Notes: I sort of slap-dashed this fanvid together because I really, really wanted to make a fanvid about this glorious episode and I really, really wanted to use this particular Bastille gem with it
Made with Windows Live Movie Maker, it was the first time I used it and it was very limited so the editing is a bit basic -- but still, the song matches completely

Okay so long-ass Empty Hearse review, let's get this over with.

Overall that episode left me very conflicted, especially after the Caitlin Moran Debacle; the references to the fans and the fandom didn't feel respectful or an homage but rather dismissive and mocking IMO. Which -- not cool. Or maybe it would have been fine if the creators of the show hadn't repeatedly called the fangirls delusional after playing fast and loose with queer baiting, screaming NO HOMO at the top of their lungs and if there hadn't been Morangate. Also it would actually make a change if the fan viewpoint wasn't constantly played for laughs. Dude, you're fanboys yourselves. Don't think you're better than us, some fics are leagues above this episode, come the fuck on.
There's also a horrible thought that crossed my mind: it's that the treatment of the fans within this episode maybe actually gave Caitlin Moran inspiration and sort of enabled her to do what she did. I'm not saying Gatiss is responsible for what happened, but when you start to make fun of the fans like that I guess increases the odds of something like that happening.
Anyway, my theory is that so far in each season of Sherlock, there's two very good if not brilliant episodes, and then there's always one that's a bit rubbish if not complete crap (The Blind Banker in season 1 and Hounds of the Baskerville in season 2). After watching The Sign of Three, I think The Empty Hearse might very well be the rubbish one. Which is a shame, really, because The Empty House is one of the most iconic Sherlock Holmes stories from canon and, again, most fics that revolved around Sherlock's return during the hiatus were more solid plot-wise and more satisfying emotion-wise. So personal message to Mofftiss: don't mock the fans if you can't do better than them, guys. Try to write good stories. That's what we do.

Let's do the rest in bullet points, since I can't be arsed to write up a proper review:

You left me in the dark )

Hmmm it seems I'm a bit grumpy today so it shows in my review which appears more negative than I intended. I didn't hate that episode all that much, really; it's just that as a season opener for a show that's been on hiatus for TWO YEARS, it felt a bit like a letdown.
Luckily, The Sign of Three set everything right again for me and I think it skyrocketed to first place as my favourite Sherlock episode of all three seasons (even the mystery was good! Well done, show, well done!).

Now I need fics, angsty fanvids and angsty songs to make some angsty fanvids myself. Yeah.

Nevermind The Empty Hearse, wasn't The Sign of Three AN AWESOME EPISODE OR WHAT?????????

OH MY GOD THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT!!!
sevenswells: (Sherlock and security blanket WIN)
I've just watched the Empty Hearse, I need a bit of time to regroup and work out how I precisely felt about it.

Overall, liked it. I think it could have been better, but still, fairly decent writing and mostly good episode.

I need to watch it again and then write more about my feelings.

Just one thing I've decided tho: ANTHEA IS OUR COULSON. That is all.

There's an offline campaign to Save The Hour: the fans are sending postcards to the BBC from all over the world, and I'm participating! They must all arrive on the 4th of March, or one day before or after.
Here's my contribution (with my crappy handwriting):

savethehour postcard

I'll send a couple of postcards more (I made my roommates write them so that they'll think it comes from different persons, I'll also post them from different postboxes in Paris, I'm positively machiavellian haaaaaHAHAHA ahem) but this one was the prettiest, plus there's a lion in it (get it? Get it??)

And don’t forget about the petition guys! Just a few signatures to go before hitting the 15,000 mark! http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/the-bbc-please-commission-a-third-series-of-the-hour-savethehour

You guise, 00Q is a BABY FANDOM.
IT'S ADORABLE.
I was (more or less) there when it was born and now I'm watching it grow with motherly pride. The fans are calling themselves "00Qties" or are hashtagging everything with "#00Qpioneers4satan" (after an inside joke between friends on tumblr apparently) and they're all very cute and enthusiastic and there are more and more fics on AO3 everyday and NOTHING HURTS.

We've discussed it with [livejournal.com profile] berylia, and the reason we think 00Q is a ship that took off so quickly is that right now almost every major fandom is on hiatus. Most of us fangirls are waiting for season 3 of Sherlock, and Teen Wolf , the next Avengers movie and Iron Man 3, and I don't know where they're up to in Supernatural but I'm guessing it must also be on hiatus since, when I look at the people reblogging 00Q stuff on Tumblr, most of the usernames have to do with the aforementioned fandoms. So Skyfall had in fact the right timing to make us fall in love with the pairing, I don't think it was calculated, but well done, and I hope that they're going to take that into account for the next Bond movie, especially since there are rumours that Mr Cumberbatch might be the next Bond villain (personal wishlist: I hope Benedict plays a highly intelligent criminal mastermind that targets Q himself and then Bond has to save his darling from evil!Benny's clutches, IT WOULD BE SUPER AWESOME)

We went to see Skyfall again yesterday, then we watched my DVD of Brideshead Revisited (I LOVED it, it was actually a very good film even though it broke my heart a bit) and now I feel I'm becoming dangerously obsessed with Ben Whishaw, which is really unfair, because I have enough British actors ruining my life already. I learned on Tumblr that Whishaw also played Andrew Scott's gay lover onstage and that fucked me up a bit more and the image in my head alone makes me want to curl up on the floor and start crying.
So at 2 in the morning yesterday I watched interviews of him and completely melted because he's so fucking kawaii and looks so horribly shy and intimidated in front of cameras when he's not acting:



In real life apparently, he's dating Bright Star's music composer Mark Bradshaw AND THEY LOOK REALLY ADORABLE TOGETHER:



SO. FUCKING. KAWAII.

I've heard Skyfall opens in the US starting tomorrow, GO SEE IT, American people from my f-list, you need it in your life!

Billet Skyfall

So awesome. So awesome.

Today was the day of my birthday *party* (yes because I celebrate my birthday twice in a week that's just how I roll) and we went to see Skyfall in the morning.

sevenswells: (WTF (Big Bang Theory))
Once upon a time, I swore to [livejournal.com profile] berylia that I would absolutely NOT go see the new James Bond movie.

"The first one was crap," said I, "the second one was SUPER crap, so I'm drawing a line in the fucking sand here, this stops now do you hear me, there's NO WAY IN HELL I'm going to see that third one, I'm not STUPID, okay."
"Oh," said the wench in return, "but did you know that the lovely, lovely Ben Whishaw is going to play Bond's new Q wearing hipster glasses and that there's already fic about a Bond/Q pairing, and there's even a name for that ship, it's called "00Q", isn't that cute...?"
"askjfhfsdgfdkulifdkjhsfdhj," said I with foam around my mouth.

So! I haven't even seen the movie yet but I've accepted my fate, and I'm already drawing porn. Sketch, James Bond/Q with Daniel Craig as Bond and Ben Whishaw as Q, NC-17 and not worksafe, it has been inspired by this gif I've found on tumblr (careful, not safe for work either), I'll post a cleaned-up version later.

Hold your breath and count to ten )

TOO MANY FEELS
TOO MANY FEELS IN ONE EPISODE
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THESE FEELS ARE DOING

It's like those characters being in a law firm is just a pretext for EVERYONE PUTTING THEIR EMOTIONS ON TRIAL AND TESTIFYING ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS IN COURT

IT'S LIKE...

A GIANT METAPHORICAL LAWSUIT AGAINST CARING AND IT'S A LOST CAUSE BUT SOMEHOW CARING IS GOING TO WIN

PEARSON HARDMAN VS. CARING

Mystrade!

Does anyone have good Mystrade recs for me? I've already read At Least There's the Football which was splendid, A Reliable Man which has to be the greatest characterization of Mycroft in the fandom ever, and Puppet On A String which is unbearably good but has left me very frustrated because it's a WIP and I'm gasping for more.

Please give me Mystrade recs, F-list, pleaaaaaase!

P.S.: And here's a beautiful Mystrade fanvid, btw: Those Things You Do by duchesscloverly on Tumblr

Spoilers under the cut!

RIGHT IN THE FEELS )

God this is just like The Administration! Not that Mike is Warrick (hahaha, I don't think Warrick would be too pleased with the comparison), but Harvey and Donna have the same relationship as Toreth and Sarah, it's so amazing. (by the way, if you haven't read The Administration by Manna Francis yet, you're missing out. See my rec post about it)
sevenswells: (John Watson proportionately more good)
Sarah Lund:




John Watson:




50% stupid jumpers, 50% nerves of steel, 100% badasses. I want a crossover like CRAZY °0°
(so, yeah, Forbrydelsen is goooooood shit, plus there's Mads Mikkelsen's older brother in it, hello eye candy)

Ciao bello

I'm in New Zealand trying to fight jet lag by watching the first episode of Julian Fellowes's Titanic TV series (thanks to the ever adorable [livejournal.com profile] evildrem) and I'm finding this guy



INSANELY attractive. I don't even understand why, he's not exactly my type, but every time he's onscreen I find it difficult to concentrate on the dialogue . Plus I have a weakness for serious, dependable elder brothers who take care of their younger brothers, you know I have.

PLEASE do not die, Gorgeous Italian Hunk. I couldn't care less about your brother so far, but after only two scenes with you I think it would pain me very much to see you drown.
sevenswells: (INCREDIBLY GAY Lelouch (Code Geass))
Finally (FINALLY!!!!) saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows yesterday with [livejournal.com profile] berylia and [livejournal.com profile] miiaah.

I'm not sure this is coherent enough to call it a "review", but there you have it )
