Of Claws and Phasers

I’m going to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine on Sunday morning. It’s gotten decidedly mixed reviews, but at the very least there promises to be several scenes with a shirtless Hugh Jackman.

I’ll see Star Trek next weekend. I’ve promised myself that I’ll watch it as if it’s filmed fanfic so I don’t ruin the experience for anyone else by shouting “J.J. Abrams, you bastard! I hope the bloody smoke monster gets you!” at every opportunity.

I actually scared a co-worker a few weeks ago when I started rattling off all the possible violations of canon in the film based on spoilers. He sort of backed away, and said, “I love Star Trek, but not that much.” I’m such an uber-geek that sometimes I frighten the other geeks with my fervor.

And, of course, I’ll write reviews of both films and post them for your reading pleasure.
