this weekend i:

1. drove three hundred and forty miles round-trip to see an advance screening of the golden compass with rk.

2. did not kill myself or anyone else during said three hundred and forty miles (most of which i drove at night)! have therefore awarded myself many kudos for surviving my first solo roadtrip, complete with missed exits, refueling stops, and DRIVING IN SAN FRANCISCO. AT NIGHT.

3. mostly.

THINGS WHICH WERE AWESOME: a)PANSERBJØRNE!!!! b)PANSERBJØRNE DESTROYING CHURCHES!!! c)the girl who played lyra who should have been grubbier but was frankly v.good!

THINGS WHICH WERE GOOD: d)nicole kidman (not quite as good as claudia black would have been)! e)daniel craig (not quite as good as captain von trapp would have been)! (tris, the vidding tech is out there. WE CAN MAKE THIS A REALITY!!!) f)the general prettiness and the subtle depictions of other-ness of lyra's world!

THINGS WHICH WERE OKAY BUT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER: g)ian mckellen (who i thought was patrick stewart) as iorek. they needed someone norwegian, not british. and ian mckellen's voice is just too fancy to play a PANSERBJØRNE. h)whoever pantalaimon's voice actor was. i)nicole kidman's hair color. EYEBROW MATCHING IS STILL IN STYLE, GUYS. j)that pan only went through three or four variations in shape through the whole film. cat, ferret-colored ermine, bird, and mouse. didn't pan have a wider range of variation? like...ermine-colored ermine.

THINGS WHICH COMPLETELY SUCKED, WHICH I AM STILL MAD ABOUT AND UTTERLY CONFUSED BY: k)THE COMPLETE REFUSAL TO FILM AND SHOW THE ENTIRE LAST CHAPTER AND A HALF OF THE BOOK! way to totally throw off the the arcs in book two and also totally ruin my otherwise gleeful viewing experience, guys! WHAT. THE. FUCK. I WANTED ASRIEL. "I DID NOT SEND FOR YOU!" AUGH!!

4. prince. caspian. trailer. i am pretty sure tris and i injured each other while clutching in absolute mindless glee and lust. they should have shown it again after the movie finished. oh.

5. is the prince caspian trailer up on the net yet?

6. i could kill for some more of those eggrolls, tris.

7. awwwww.
