I'm not quite sure how it began-- but it did-- my inexplainable infatuation with the Robin character from Batman. I think it's manifestation completely amused myself and the people who know me, which is probably why I just can't seem to stop. Keep in mind that this isn't some obsession where I have to collect every Robin paraphernalia known to man's existance. Not quite. I wouldn't mind having a gazillion Robin objects to happily roll around in, but I don't quite have the budget for it, sadly.
Instead, I'm just locked onto the fact that I want to marry the Boy Wonder.
Oh how I wished this could be a real film. Some of the acting is a bit on the bad side, but overall, I think the short "trailer" is rather impressive with an interesting premise. I would prefer that the other DC heroes stayed out of it because I fail to see the importance of the Justice League in a Robin film... Superman, maybe... but Wonderwoman too??
Needless to say, the whole thing just makes me drooly and I think someone who has a soul should give these people the money to make a full-length feature film.
If they did, I would pay enough to see the movie as many times to help pay for that film budget back. I SWEAR!
I know I'm a little late on this uptake since this fanfilm has been around for quite some time garnering raving reviews and even controversies; but it never hurts to mention something that has to be considered epic again!
San Diego Comic-Con 2007, much like it's previous years, was huge with too many people nerding all over the place.
This year, I was a half a regular attendee, and then I had one foot in the "professional" side of things. I was with my good friend, Christy Lijewski (creator of Next Exit and RE:Play), for the most part, accompanying her to her panels, signings, and talking to different comic book publishers. Needless to say, it was very interesting for me!
Unfortunately, despite attending the convention for all four days, I managed to miss most of the people I had wanted to see. I definetely made it a point to say hello to David Mack and Stuart Sayger. I also found Aimee Major and she drew adorable cats for me. I also picked up Mack's The Shy Creatures book, which is all together delightful to own.
I kept my eye out for people I knew from the Bendis Board but never found any of them. I don't know too many of them, really, and many of them do not know me for I fail to be active on the forums anymore. It's been years since I saw Pat Loika or Taki Soma though and I do miss them.
I didn't really get to attend a lot of panels. I attempted to get into the "Avatar: The Last Airbender" panel, but failed miserably as the room filled up quickly. I hate standing in line... and I stood in line for that one, too! My friends and I got into the Futurama panel, which was a lot of fun as a lot of the voice actors were present for it. Futurama fans can look forward to new movies coming soon.
I missed the Live Art party on Friday, but I did get to attend another great party on Saturday night-- though the details of that party should be kept a secret among us. Yes. It was that awesome. Sorry... no dirty stories about myself here! Only about other people.
Overall, the convention wasn't too bad. Even though Saturday sold out, the crowd wasn't as bad I expected. The convention did an amazing job controlling the crowd and I am very appreciative of it. It was exhausting having to be there for all four days and I wished I had done more and seen more people-- but that's always seem to be the general feeling that Comic-con always leave me with.
We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
