Episode 3.6: "I Do"

In the episode "I Do," Kate marries Nathan Fillion's character, who is a Miami Dade Police Officer. However, he has no idea that she's a fugitive (later an international fugitive) and has completely lied to him. Meanwhile, in present Island time, Kate, Sawyer and Jack have been kidnapped by the Others. Kate and Sawyer are held in the old Dharma Initiative's Polar Bear cages, and after many head games and fishbiscuits, have sex in them. Good times.

Nathan Fillion is an actor well known to Joss Whedon fans. He's Captain Hammer in the Doctor Horrible webshow, Mal Reynolds in Serenity and some evil mysoginistic priest in the final season of Buffy. The two pictures I chose are from comic books of two of those shows, created by Adam Huges and Gene Ha. There's also part of the movie poster from Caged Heat, an infamous chick prison movie from the '70's.

Movies Movies Movies

Went nuts during my "vacation" and saw a bunch of movies. Like to hear it, hear it goes....

Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton's):
Wow, I don't care what anybody says, this movie is incredible. Yes, it doesn't follow the books at all, but I think it's faithful to the core material. Visually, it's incredible. The final scene with the Jabberwocky--with Christopher Lee's Voice, no less, talking to the Vorpal Sword is great--real mythological. I also thought that Tweedledum and Tweedledee were hilarious..just funny silly characters all around. Johnny Depp makes another heavily-makeupped and prosthetics appearance. I agree with one kid I heard say that Johnny Depp doesn't want anyone to think he's a pretty boy so he puts all this shit over his face and body to disguise himself.

Inglourious Basterds:
Great flick, another one for Tarantino. Brutal, bloody, but clever. Brad Pitt made me forget he's Brad Pitt. It had Tarantino's signature 20 minute verbal diarrhea scenes, but the rest of the flick is so good, that it didn't matter. I found myself saying the name "Hugo Stiglitz" the next day at work for no apparent reason. The Boston accent on Donny is hilarious--try saying "Fraulein Von Hammersmark" with a Southie accent, and you'll see what I mean. If not, call me and I'll do it for you. I can see why the actor who played the main Nazi won an Academy Award--and don't worry, he got what was coming to him in the movie....

Yeah, I know, but it was free on Showtime On Demand and I wanted to see what the fuss was all about. What a mistake. This was a freakin' average movie. It was awful to watch. Pale teen angst from 24-year-olds. The angst was really annoying. I'm glad I hated this flick because I'm not a 13-year-old girl. Oh, the Showtime On Demand menu had such incredible pieces of cinematic kick-assmanship like The Devil Wears Nada, The Hills Have Thighs and my personal favorite, Slutty Busty and Bad. Chew on those for a while.

The Surrogates:
Okay. Pretty much every other Sci-Fi movie. Go see Gamer instead, it's pretty much interchangeable.

Law-Abiding Citizen:
Not bad, made you hate the justice system. Gerard Butler does a good job, you didn't see the ending coming. Ingenious inventions, waiting to see who'd die next and how. I probably would have liked it better as a book instead.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
Really good flick, improves on the original movies. They really keep getting better as they go along--one more to go!! The only drawback is you really have to read the books first in order to get all the nuances and details. Suggested, but not entirely necessary.
