Ok had to post for a number of reasons. One I've not posted for waaaaay too long, two to say THIS is how you do Catwoman right!!!!

Absolutely LOVED the Dark Knight Rises, spectacular end to a great trilogy, further chat and of course spoilers under the cut.

Loved the film, thought JGL was amazing and was totally not surprised by the reveal at the end, in fact both Hubby and I twigged early on that they were doing a Batman Beyond/Batman of the future set up. Which led to great worrying as my son does not handle death of characters well and Batman is his favourite superhero alongside Captain America so yeah that was not good, cue explosion and a little face crumbling and sobs being heard throughout the cinema for a good ten minutes. Then of course I didn't help when Alfred was standing crying at the Wayne's grave about how he 'let them down' and I started with the sobbing and hubby desperately whispering 'You're not helping' but anyway we then saw the cafe scene son calmed down, I calmed down and we saw JGL become new Batman and cue sons cheers of how now he can save Gotham and Batman/Catwoman can save the rest of the world.

But yes brilliantly film, wish we could have had an appearance by Tom Hardy as rest of the crew from Inception were there. both female leads were fantastic, if the reveal was a little James Bondy!! the cinematography was outstanding, the scope of the film fantastic, the characters were real and flawed and awesome and I even kind of tolerated Bale.

Fantastic move, would highly recommend.

In other news, thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] veritas_st I am now addicted to Teen Wolf. I managed to get through the first season on sheer force of will and due to the love of Stiles who now owns my soul and of course Derek/Stiles (Come on it's me, you think I'm going to fall in love and not have a ship!!!)

But second season has been surprisingly good, it has character development, a great cast that just keep getting better and unlike my old boyfriend that I still have a massive crush on (Supernatural) it doesn't kill off all the ladies. AWESOME

So any of the lovely people on flist TW fans?

*raises hand*

Thanks again to Verity, she got me involved in yet, another, fandom that I didn't have time for. Suits and Teen Wolf are my new obsessions!

I only knew the movies from the 80s, so it was easy to follow her fics with just seeing the gifs of Stiles/Derek. HOT much?!? I got so hooked on her relationship between the boys that I had to find out for myself. I didn't go back to S1, but I've been watching the past 5 episodes of S2 and it's great. Plus, I'm stalking everyone on Twitter. They are so very present, it's not even funny. The show runners for both Suits and TW are always tweeting comments and giving away information. It's a blast. Not to mention the cast is always tweeting pics and comments with the fans.

Turns out a really good friend of mine is one of the Executive Producers of TW! He, my husband and I started working at MTV at the same time. I left to have babies. My husband went to be an EP at VH1, and Tony became President of MTV. Ha!

I love the fact that Dylan (who actually grew up in the town next to me!) and Tyler know about the STEREK ship and are pushing for it in S3! I'm sure you've seen their Teen Choice Awards promo on the boat? It's BRILLIANT! *hugs them*

This time we just might actually get our fandom ship as CANON!! ♥

PS: I haven't seen DKR, and now I might wait until it's out on DVD. But I adore Ann Hathaway and she's looking amazing in that Catsuit. I think I have a ladycrush on her. Is it possible to be jealous of someone's outfit AND be slightly turned on by it at the same time? TMI???

"wish we could have had an appearance by Tom Hardy as rest of the crew from Inception were there"

-- you do know Tom Hardy was Bane, right? and although he was rather unrecognizable there is one scene where we see his real face (flashback to the prison, when he's beaten up by his fellow inmates) ^^
