|LiveJournal: When Yelling About It On Twitter Just Isn't Enough Yelling

Angela, Zolac no Miko
Real quick, two things I need to flail about with fannish enthusiasm.
One: I've already flailed about this on we_love_dick, but I really can't enjoy this in enough places, honestly. Some of you may be aware of my ongoing campaign, No Really, Someone Needs To Cast Matt Bomer As Live-Action Nightwing Already? Well, regonym brought this to my attention today: apparently, MATT BOMER REALLY REALLY AGREES.
...Whyyyyyyyyyy isn't this real life yet? T_T
Two: I WATCHED PUNCTURE I REALLY LIKED IT YOU SHOULD ALL WATCH PUNCTURE I NEED SOMEONE TO FLAIL AT.
Okay so I bought this movie for like 49¢, I'd never heard of it, it got really mixed reviews, I wasn't expecting much, but CHRIS EVANS, so I figured it was worth some pocket change. It's based on a true story; Chris Evans plays Mike Weiss, a bearded, tattooed, often-shirtless, drug-addict, fashion-impaired, asshole, train wreck, idiot-savant small-time lawyer. He and his partner take up the case of a nurse who got an infection accidentally poking herself with a needle, and they get embroiled in this whole David-and-Goliath thing with scary powerful lawyers and government and medical supply company conspiracy. The story was excellent.
Chris Evans' performance KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE FREAKING PARK.
I fell instantly and madly in love with Mike. That asshole. He is like a Mike Ross who didn't end up under Harvey Specter's protective wing. He is like Tony Stark if he weren't rich and if he were a genius lawyer instead of a genius engineer. In the pantheon of Adorable Fuckheads he is the adorablest fuckhead since Harry Lockhart. HE IS SUCH AN ASSHOLE and he's so smart and so fucked up and sad and UGH I FUCKING LOVE HIM I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU.
I must warn that the movie features VERY HEAVY DRUG USE, like, pills, smoking, snorting, needles, LOTS AND LOTS OF ALL OF THE ABOVE. But you should see it. Because Mike Weiss IS AMAZING and I just. I need someone to watch this movie so I have someone to love him with me and I have someone to flail at, there is so much flailing I want to do but SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.
DO RECOMMEND, especially if you are already a Chris Evans fan. If you aren't, you will become one. Here have some incentive.
HE HAS A BEARD. AND MANPAIN.
JUST LOOK AT THIS ASSHOLE. As far as I can tell he really hates wearing shirts. The ones he does wear are VERY BRIGHT and clash with his also VERY BRIGHT ties. Also he is covered in tattoos, my favorite is the one that trails up his spine. ♥
...WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT PLEEEEEEAAAASE.
