verushka70: Veronica smiles smugly before giving the finger (Veronica Mars movie)
So I finally watched Suicide Squad on my HBO-only cable& internet subscription.

So...

verushka70: Veronica gives the finger to an asshole (lipstick flip-off)
I should've gone to bed like half an hour ago. I have to be at work at 6:30am. But I thought I'd catch Elementary.

Which continues to disappoint. I haven't even been keeping up with it this season. I watched the premiere of S5 and then it was catch as catch can -- if I caught it, I watched it; if not, oh well.

The introduction of yet another sidekick this season was pretty meh; it's become a show formula now. Whatevs. (I was glad to see Nelsan Ellis as Shinwell because I hadn't seen him since True Blood. Crossover with Lucifer so he can be together again with Kevin Alejandro/Det. Douchebag (as Lucifer calls him)? Heh, I haven't even looked for that fic, but I bet it exists!)

ANYHOO... my disappointment tonight boils down to the inevitable biological destiny writers can't seem to help imposing on the most kickass female characters.

(So help me deity/ies, if they do that to Jessica Jones, I WILL FUCKING SCREAM AND THROW THINGS)

Well, I was looking for something else and stumbled on Esperanza's posts (http://www.livejournal.com/~cesperanza/2005/12/21/) about Brokeback Mountain, which I have seen. So you might want to read her stuff a bit before you read my response.

I felt the need to comment on her posts, because there was such cogent thought -- and outrage -- behind them. But it turned into much more than a comment, and it focused on a lot of things Esperanza never said, just things that have irritated me about the promotion of Brokeback, and the entertainment buzz about it, so here it is...

Trying to make this brief (after 2am...ha! Going for broke!).

I understand the outrage of "is this still where we're at?" -- I actually do. Because, on the brink of 2006, and in Chicago, I'm going, "No, we're not there -- not us in Chicago."

But at the same time, I think that, unfortunately, YES, in many parts of this country, that IS where we're still at: "Hey, should we go beat those two queer cowboys to death with firewood, or should we just go get some beers?" "Nah, let's get some beers first." (spit)
