Utena: With Sword

Okay, I may be regretting my mockery of the USAicans. Just a little...

And just as I predicted yesterday, my delight at seeing The Dark Knight before all the other countries is now slightly less delightful in the absence of fanworks to squee over.

I mean, not so much so that I get less enjoyment at LOLing at the poor peeps that haven't seen it, but still... Less schadenfreude-y. I want ficcish fallout!

That said, the pre-release hype is providing plenty of entertainment of it's own accord. I mean, there's already Dark Knight wank despite the whole not-being-out-yet thing.

Basically, there have been a whole 8 negative reviews so far. Out of the 100 listed, and umpteen more around the net. And over at Rotten Tomatoes, the people responsible for these reviews are getting a whole lotta abuse thrown at them. And, despite the fact I disagree with the vast majority of what the bad reviews say, I feel the urge to slap these fans upside of the head and tell them to stop being such stereotypical fanbrats.

On the subject of Dark Knight hype, RandomGuy has a new Marvel vs DC video on that very subject. And it is the greatest thing I have even seen (since the Dark Knight, anyway). I laughed so hard I cried. It's also spoiler-free, so your poor saps still waiting can have some entertainment to fill your time.

And to take a random jump into an entirely different fandom, since it's all over my flist (and MSN and killing teh intarwebz), I have to mention Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

I didn't mention it when it first act came out because 1) I had other things on my mind, and 2) ...though I thought it was cute and had some funny lines, I didn't actually think it was great. Good, but not great.

But the second act came out today, and now we're talking. Me likey, me likey indeed.

...I still have the urge to know if Dr Horrible and Dr Evil ever met, though.
