Shot through the heart

See this? This is targeted advertising, my friend. Knowing your audience. Stay tuned for my review within hours of the opening showing.

The Kid, Rabbit and myself are all keenly awaiting the release of this film. That advertising looks truly awesome. Obviously following in the trends of the Brian Kinney school of advertising.

*Sigh*

In the meantime:

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'cos I have been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I'm loving angels instead ...

May Robbie be with you, Brother. Amen.

Bodhi said...

Rockin' out with my Robbie out, Brother. Word.

The geekboy has Friday off, and is already planning an X-Men outing.

Michael said...

And vous?

I'm not usually one to RUSH OUT into the hoi polloi, but I think I'm gonna. I mean, even the Geekboy has to admit that the gay subtext is, well, not so subtextual as it is blatant.

Plus, Hugh Jackman. Could he look or be named any better?

freakgirl said...

I'll have to ask him about the gay subtext. He tends to poo-poo that sort of thing, until I forced him to REALLY watch the scenes between Lex and Clark on Smallville with an open mind. heh.

I have never seen an X-Men movie. I may tag along, though. I love the look of Angel, and Famke Jansen (how do you spell her name?) is certainly easy on the eyes. Plus, attending X-Men movies might be part of my Wifely Contract of Responsibilities.

The movie ROCKS!!! I'm glad they put Angel in there, but honestly, it's all about Hank McCoy as the Beast. There is enough fan-boy stuff to keep you hard and the action sequences are what the other two movies should have always had. Maiming and destruction, death and chaos. Let loose the dogs of war!

savante said...

Can't wait either. Opens tonight and I'm gonna be waiting outside like a freaking fanboy.

Dammit I can't wait either! But I'd have to wait after all--I'm ona trip till next monday! Wanted to watch the midnight showing tonight but I guess jeopardising a planeload of passengers with a pilot who's only had 2 hours of sleep isn't worth it...

Michael said...

....until I forced him to REALLY watch the scenes between Lex and Clark on Smallville with an open mind. Ha! And muah! God, sometimes I just wanna club you over the head and drag you back to my cave, Freakgirl.

Beau, you've already seen it?! I loved the other two actually, but more maiming and destruction, done right, is music to my ears. So it sounds like the tone, sans Singer, has changed a bit.

"Like" a freaking fanboy, Paul? It's time you owned it, darling.

Wingedman, you keep those skies safe. Meanwhile, I'll be over here ogling mutants.

Bodhi said...

And speaking of Robbie - I told you about this months ago anyway, but His Robbie-ness tour has now been confirmed for Aussie Stadium here in Sydney on 9 December 2006.

Thought you would like to know Mikey. You know, so you can book your QANTAS flight and all. Of course I note the aforemention news with my usual strong sense of calm and dignified decorum. Excuse me one moment ...
