 And SO MANY THINGS but mostly: They got Natasha right! And Falcon right! And Fury! 

(And the many, many acts of heroism by minor, non super powered characters).

 I kind of want to try writing a long isn piece with Sarah from Labyrinth as a grown up and Jareth, in which they do have some kind of relationship but it is On Her Own Terms, because I saw Labyrinth for the first time in memory recently (1) and I now watch the final scene and Chilly Down when ever I need to get through Something Difficult.

(1) My dad, whose memory I trust because we share the ridiculous elephantine conversational recapture memory with random trauma blanks, and my sister, who is similar, both inform me that I did watch Labyrinth several times as a tiny!Inigo, and possibly also as a teen!Inigo. It probably got lost because of aforementioned trauma blanks, which is why I still keep my paper diaries, because sometimes they remind me that I actually read this Vonnegut I am reading now ten years ago, and it just got eaten by my brain. 

(That or I actually made a stupid deal with the Kindly Folk as a child or teenager. We cannot rule that out, guys)

Cut, because I doubt I can review it without spoilers. Oh, and you have to accept that there's a character named Zorg, and that I'm half in love with him.

I can't do this without overusing superlatives. Just watch it and then discuss it with me.

So I just wrote an essay. Admittedly its not so good, and it's too short to be a proper essay, but there's one semi decent paragraph there and that's a good thing. And it means that I have *finally* written something about TITN, which is a mountain I was waiting to climb. Off course I'm now procrastinating from the next essay by updating my LJ.

Will review Betty Blue, probably on pseudo-bohemian-loser.blogspot.com, later today, when I have more to say than this: beautiful, circular, haunting, tragic film which is exceptionally well acted. I was slightly infuriated (okay, I was infuriated) by a friend saying that Dalle isn't terribly good in it. 

An Hamlet essay awaits.
