I ‘studied’ this play for A -Level English but that was over 35 yrs ago, so when it was announced that this would be Tom’s return to the Shakespearean stage, I was a little nonplussed. I didn’t remember anything in detail, about the play other than the obnoxious soldier, pushy ambitious mother and it ‘didn’t end well’. Also that I, like many, had visualized Coriolanus as an older man.
I watched the Fiennes version in the months before the performance and also re-read the text. My god, it’s easier to understand Shakespeare with those extra years under my belt. I saw it with my husband and in the end, my Shakespeare adoring niece who lives in London. The intention was to take my 14yr daughter, but she can be emotional at violence, gore etc so she bailed & was treated to a tour of London with a friend who knows all the best places and dim sum in China town.

Oh this film - seen it three times now and I love it (in a different way to the first which is still really fine) I have a feeling this was a Joss penned scene (one of the last to be filmed) And funny enough when I was watching Henry IV Pt1 last night as Hal appears chastised before the King, Tom does the almost exact same footstep as he approaches - just as if he is standing to attention.
I think Chris Hemsworth does an excellent job too - it's rather a shame he is overshadowed by the media Loki attention. There's much to be said for the Thor & Loki dynamic being greater than the sum of the parts. I shall more than likely be making more wallpapers. Next up a few Agents of Shield Icons I think.
I can hardly wait. I booked for tomorrow night instead of tonight (don't ask me why) so we're off to see it then. I am so looking forward to this and have only seen two trailers. I've avoided all the extra TV spots, behind the scenes, extra scenes etc etc as best I can, so there is some film left to see anew. I have a good feeling about this one. But I do know I am easy to please so there is that. I shall probably see it once more on my own after the shock wears off.
Secondly my short trip to London was super fun. The weather held out and both 'events' were fabulous. I only wish I had time for more.( So what happened at Marvel Meet the FilmMakers )
And then with J to the London Film Festival Cult Gala to see( Only Lovers Left Alive )
And if that wasn't enough this weekend I was in Birmingham for Hallowhedon 5 - A fun time was had by all. I'm going to save that for another post but in the meantime here's a teaser or two
I am just sifting through the remaining photos and I will be back with a post.

So we've had 3 episodes of A.o.S in the UK now. I've seen a bit of criticism and praise too, but I am loving the show. It's not 100% whedonesque but I never expected that. This is primarily a Marvel show and is aimed at family audience. As such I'm finding that it's a lot of fun and highly entertaining. Not everything has to be/ or should be dark/deep/disturbing. I have a whole list of shows that already fill that quota and this makes a refreshing change.
We all watch it together on Friday night and it's a good reason to make a huge bowl of popcorn and have a glass or three to celebrate the start of the weekend. It's a great way to do that. Ellie thinks Melinda May is beyond awesome too.

After they had all eaten their way through a zillion pancakes on Sunday morning they departed (bless 'em) and I was left to catch up on Panels and stuff going down over at SDCC.
BLOODY HELL. So this happened in Hall H Talk about an entrance.
This isn't the full speech but it's easy to find more vids on Youtube.
In summary - I'm going to have to medicate heavily for the Coriolanus gig because, boy does the dude love the stage (and it loves him right back too)
I also had a groovy time watching Nathan and Alan at a NerdHQ conversation and there's tons more to enjoy over the next few days.
Wow, don't want to do that again for a while. I see obsessive24 got hers too :D
So yeah, that's great and I think I need to go and sit in a dark room for while.

We're in London this summer for a short while and I have a Prom, The Globe and now Dan Radcliffe's new play booked up. Yess I have a credit card and a new purpose in life. Next stop the Donmar where Coriolanus tickets will be exchanged for first born children. Wish me
No one is allowed to book tickets until I have mine 'kay?
In other news I need to update the LJ layout - it's wintry and although we did have snow this week, perhaps if I change it we may get a taste of spring.
