Jumper - 1st impressions. No spoilers.
One Star Wars geek girl moment:

Whenever David [Hayden's character] says "My dad", it was subtitled in Dutch to "M'n Vader" which at a quick glance could almost be "I'm Vader." *g*

Hopefully I'll get a new Millie icon soon. That shot of her in the snow at the end of the movie was so beautiful.

I'll probably give a more indepth review later. It was an OK movie, and it helped that I turned off the inner hype switch before stepping into the cinema. So I enjoyed the show for what it's worth. Which really wasn't as bad as the critics are apparently saying. Despite being a fan of Hayden, I have to admit that Jamie Bell totally stole the show.

"The parts were greater than the sum" would probably be the best description, I think.

I've created a Jumper tag. I think it's earned one.

I'm still debating whether I want to see this film or not. Advice?

Wait...you watched the movie in Dutch?

I feel like I'm missing something... ;)

See it. Just don't expect anything too fantastic. Go with an open mind. Even better, expect the worst - you'll appreciate it better.

Not really. :P Just the subtitles.

How can I see the Dutch version? It sounds like it would be more fun. LOL.

I think you'll need to wait for the DVD version and even then, they don't always dub over with the Dutch audio, just leave in the subtitles. English is taught in the Netherlands and there are very few people born in the last fifty years who don't speak/understand it fluently.

Actually, I don't think European DVDs even work here in the States. *le sigh* I suppose I'll be stuck with the English version, and optional Spanish or French subtitles. Not the same thing at all... ;)

How dare you insult Iroh in such a manner?!

LOL. That's Iroh and his nephew Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender. veriond got me hooked on that show. It's made of awesome, actually. And you can watch all the episodes online here or here. :)

As it turns out, I have a tea icon of sorts.

A new fandom, right? Mmm... I think I may just check it out since it comes so highly recommended. :P

Well, make sure you have lots of time on your hands. Or space out your viewings, of course. But if you're like me, you'll end up doing a marathon. ;)

I have a feeling that you'll like the Fire Nation characters. There's a great prevalence of dark and twisted family relationships there. ;)

LOL that Dutch subtitle is so funny and I too would geek out. Why did you watch it in Dutch?

Actually my geeky moments were these:
1. anytime David got electrocuted all I could think was how his convulsions on the floor looked like Luke getting hit with the Emperor's lighting. LOL
2. Mace Windu gets back at Anakin.

No, I didn't watch it in Dutch. It was just subtitled in that language. :D

Word. Heck, the Lightning Rod even had a lightsabre hilt. :P

Mace Windu gets back at Anakin.

:D I forget - did he actually throw David out of the window?

Oh. Why the Dutch subtitles though?

I don't think he threw him out a window but he sure beat on him a lot!
