It's springtime
Spring - luna_ann
I have been sick on and off since my last entry so I'm sorry to have been absent. D&V, plus fever, plus hot and cold rushes. Joy! This has also interrupted my gym sessions because if I can barely manage going to work, I'm not going to the gym. Back on track now and hoping to stay there. Getting sick so often is frustrating because I couldn't plan for anything. Overtime? Nope. A meal out with friends? Nope. Cinema? Only if I take a whole box of tissues and prayed my throat didn't get too dry (which is how I saw Zootropolis aka Zootopia and The Jungle Book). I loved them both by the way.

I've also seen Civil War, I Saw The Light and Miles Ahead, feel free to ask my opinion.

Recently rediscovered the album Tiger Bay by Saint Etienne. Originally released in 1994 (*sob*), the version I have is the 1996 re-issue, which I bought in 2004. The re-issue includes the band's biggest commercial hit He's On The Phone. The song embedded below perfectly captures springtime for me.

I felt awful for Bucky. While I always thought he'd been wronged, in this movie he was much more humanized (instead of just on killing machine mode) and so I empathized with him more.

I liked Ant-Man and Spidey in the movie...it needed some levity with so much heartbreak and sadness.

Scott was great as the everyman (his geeking out over Steve and the others was adorable). It was really nice to see a young Peter Parker.

It was really nice to see a young Peter Parker. Agreed. I wasn't sure how I was going to like yet another new casting of Spidey, but I loved him and I think he's the truest-to-character casting of Spidey yet. He was awesome.

Fandom's reaction to him reminds me of the reaction to Ruffalo as Bruce Banner in Avengers: from "Ugh... they recast Bruce Banner, who is this dude" to "OMG MARK RUFFALO IS AMAZING". Now it's gone from "Ugh, they recast Spidey AGAIN" to "Spider-Man was one of the best bits of the movie".


I, however, have loved Mark Ruffalo since 13 Going on 30 so I was always on board with his casting ♥

Oh, I know there were people who were behind his casting, but you know the majority ranged from "meh" to "BOOO".
