I’ve already seen it, but I’m on a strict press embargo. So I can’t tell you that it’s kinda awesome. Oh man.
Anyway, until they shut me down, I’ve got passes to the Baltimore area screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel! What’s it about? Well, it’s Wes Anderson, so the basic premise is just a place-holder for random acts of coolness, but here goes the synopsis anyway:
Okay fine, so it’s really Karen Gillian, but we’ve all known and loved her as Doctor Who‘s companion Amy Pond. So that’s what I’m going with. Ignoring reality!
I’ve got high hopes for this film, because it’s a fannish double-play. Who fans have Gillian, and BSG fans get Katie Sackhoff. Two treats in one! As for the story, here’s the synopsis for Oculus from IMDb:
A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.
Plus, there’s the damn creepy poster. Very Escher, IMHO.
Okay, enjoy the stills from the film! Are you psyched?
I was thinking yesterday about fandom gatekeepers and straight white fanboys with chips on their shoulders and how much they suck, and while as female fans it’s immensely satisfying to lay the smack down with proof of our nerd cred, I think it’s important to also emphasise that…
#SomethingThatStartsWithI = insomnia. Passed out at the gym, so napped the afternoon away… and now? Too weirdly awake for sleep. #fmsphotoaday @fatmumslim
#OnMyMind - having to leave my furbabies for the 300 Rise of an Empire screening. I just got back home a few hours ago. But right now they’re so happy to see me, I can play dress up with #MannyMiniGato. He likes #XbyTrollbeads. #fmsphotoaday @fatmumslim
