|06:07 am - this and that|
I'm considering a migration to WordPress. I am still learning about the system, especially things like privacy levels, but it's there, even if there's not much there there yet.
Saw V for Vendetta & X-Men III, liked them both ok. I need to go back and re-read the V graphic novel now, to refresh my memory before I can comment cogently. X-Men III didn't move me much one way or the other, although I've definitely come around to liking Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Logan was always one of my favorites in the comic back in the day. Kelsey Grammer as the Beast was indeed inspired.

welcome back you! :) Good to read you here.
I really enjoy using word press. It's not as simple as blogger in many respects but I feel like I own it more than when I use blogger. If that makes any sense. I've been using it in light of a project related to my "job" and it's been quite good. I'm also working with the permissions, outside just the basic password protections.
I really enjoyed V, feeling happy that someone actually wrote language into the dialogue beyond "Run!!!" and "GO GO GO GO GO" which seems to be the meat of most action movies of late. I was surprised by my enjoyment of Portman. I felt the dictator figure was the weak point but overall the Shakespearean story elements kept me going!
I was disappointed in X3. It just felt like they thought people were into it for the CGI and forgot that we like the soap opera of comics more than just the action. I love Jackman as Logan! I have to say that I think Halle Berry sucks the life out of every scene she is in. I won't go on and on but I just find her to be a body.
Anyway! I'm about to leave town for a week after being down and out and wanted to pop in and fill up space in your journal to say 'Yay you!"
