The Avengers in Fifteen Minutes


Got a new feature here: the LJ "like" function, which seems to work more like Tumblr's reblog than stealing my stuff, so I tentatively endorse this; it's not the problem I have with people jacking entire entries and reposting them as their own work.

ETA: Apparently the new LJ repost function is bringing in some (very angry) complaints, so we're going to have to reverse that endorsement. I'm leaving the Twitter/Facebook/G+ options on since no one seems to have any problems with those. If you are seeing this entry and do not wish to see this entry I am very sorry and have done what I can to prevent it from happening again.

This one ran long. Given the movie in question, I don't think anyone will really mind. Don't know what, if anything, I might do next, except that I will soldier through the ~thrilling conclusion~ of Breaking Dawn or die trying.

Chairing some guys to death, please holdCollapse )

Stuttgart State Opera, Cleveland, Germany

I actually am from Stuttgart, Germany, and was like, DAFUUUUUQ, that is NOT my city!!! lol. So this made me LOL (as did this whole thing :D :D :D)

Heh, thanks. Apparently you can actually see a Cleveland bus (what are they called, DART or BART or something?) being thrown around. I mean, I get it, the movie was expensive enough as it was without hauling the production to the actual location overseas, but... yeah.

As a nerd I cannot stop laughing. Hysterical!

This was hilarious to a ridiculous degree....I loved every second of it, and it makes me want to go watch Avengers AGAIN (3rd time) and it makes me want to join this comm and watch all the movies you've subjected to this wonderful treatment. Simply outstanding. And I have to note, not only are you funny, but you also seem to be a genuinely nice person to have not lost it at all the "How DARE you defile my sacred precious LJ!!" comments, when you didn't even do any defiling.
At any rate, I hope you do another one soon!

Yeah--we actually had the "most Germans can speak (at least some) English" discussion over on my personal journal back when the movie first came out, in addition to people pointing out that the Asgardians have this Allspeak business where everyone can understand everyone anyway. I mostly wanted to use that to segue into the idea that his "free you from freedom" logic is kind of strange no matter which language you hear it in. That's really interesting about the East Germany aspect, though.

For what it's worth, I was a French/Spanish major, and we were required to take a foreign language in high school. But yeah, in the U.S., at least, people sometimes seem to take pride in insisting on speaking only English, which I don't get. I would actually figure that people in Europe would learn multiple languages just because they're more likely to encounter them, or even have multiple national languages. I guess my thought wasn't so much "How would the Germans understand him?" as "Why would Loki think speaking in English was more useful than German (with subtitles for us)?" when the real answer is, "Because it's a movie, and they want the audience to be able to hear a monologue in their own language" (English, or dubbed for overseas, whichever) "and also, you are overthinking this, self."

As someone who has all but abandoned LJ for tumblr with the exception of you and fandomsecrets, THIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND HILARIOUS.

I really, really love this M15M having been a longtime fan of your stuff and having found you back in the day through Prisoner of Azkaban in 15 minutes.

But I really think this was was great because The Avengers is already a pretty funny movie and those are much harder to parody than movies that take themselves very seriously, and the entirety of the Internet has been making jokes about this movie for two months now but you still found new jokes and your own hilarious observations to make about it. It's a bravura performance of comedy.

(I was legitimately howling at your choice to make the Chitauri hardcore Whedon fans, because I like many of Whedon's things but it annoys me when even my own friends worship at his altar like he's dome kind of god. And I'm glad that the Whedonites who have commented here have enjoyed it and understand your brand of "affectionate snark" as you put it.)

Aw, thank you. Well, there's a reason Prometheus took me four days and this one took six weeks, I'll put it that way.

I also have no idea what in the world I could do to follow this up.
