misura: WC - Neal writing on window (Default)
Having rewatched Ant-Man about five more times during the past week, it seems safe to say that I have developped a certain fannish fondness for it. I blame Hank Pym; Scott is a likeable enough hero, but Hank Pym is just the kind of arrogant, manipulative jerk-with-maybe-a-heart-of-gold that I tend to get attached to. (I don't think he shows up in Civil War, but hopefully he'll be in the next Ant-Man movie?)

I also rewatched Guardians of the Galaxy, which was still fun, and Jurassic World, for uh Chris Pratt related reasons? (The dinos weren't bad, either, but, look, sometimes I'm just in the mood to watch a movie because it's got a hot lead actor/actress?)

Book-wise, I finally figured out how to add my Lord Peter Wimsey books on Librarything (they didn't have an obvious ISBN on the cover, and of course it would never do to simply add another edition; that is not how you which is, of course, to say: I Librarything! I resisted the temptation to rate them all four-out-of-five stars, committing myself to a reread at some point. (It may have been ten years since my last one.)

Currently in the early pages of Elizabeth Bear's Carnival, after bouncing off of both Sharon Green's Silver Princess, Golden Knight (which did not live up to my nostalgic memory) and Jacqueline Koyanagi's Ascension (which did not live up to my possibly overly high expectations, and which I might give another try at a later date).
