10:50 pm - Combining the two gives you Steampunk X-Men, which I am sure exists in fanfic form somewhere
It has been a good weekend for events organised at the last minute over FaceBook.

On Saturday, Allen said he had a ticket to Circus Oz's steampunk night available, so I got to go see that, which was rather fun. Also fun were all the nifty steampunk costumes in the audience. I wonder if someone has posted some of them online somewhere - anyone know of any links.

My outfit was a little mediocre, since I found out about it like two hours before I had to leave, but there you go.

And after circus funs I went with Allen and a group of his friends to an afterparty whatsit at The Alchemist. They had mulled pear cider, mmmm.

And as noted on twitter, I missed the last tram home and ended up having 1.30am post-alcohol dumplings. Which are now officially the best dumplings.

Then today I was with Geoff and Tristan (well, Geoff was late because of the evils of Melbourne's trains and missed the start of the movie) and we went to finally get around to seeing X-Men First Class. Which was decently fun, though there is a lot there I could nitpick. I ended up giggling over Magneto's very obvious Irish accent in the big climactic scene, because... yeah.

And that was my busy, FaceBook organised weekend. Here, have a link to a long new trailer/PV for the new FMA movie. Apparently it opened in Japan this weekend, too.
Current Mood: busybusy

It was like, I was trying to enjoy the big emotional (and somewhat homoerotic) climax of the popcorn drama movie I was watching, and all I could focus on was critical accent failure.

Lots of Germanys have an Ireland, IDK.

I was just delighted because it's my specific accent. Kerry person on my screen!

That is a point. Most Australian actors I know of either use fakes, or go the ridiculously ocker exaggerations.

(I'd heard there was accent slippage, but I hadn't expect it to be so damned blatant.)

The funny thing is, I also saw the X-Men movie yesterday. I know only the bare basics about the comic book, but from the cartoons I watched as a kid, I kept wondering why Scott's brother was around long before he was born. My favorite part was the Hugh Jackman cameo.

I've always been more of a DC person than a Marvel person. But I was amused by that cameo, even if other people's reviews had spoiled me for it.

Yeah, I'm the same. I went through a huge Batman phase a few years ago, and as a result have more useless Batman trivia than I care to admit.
