For folks who've already seen Iron Man 3 or don't plan on seeing it, here's a very funny short on "How It Should Have Ended." Spoilers!

The 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Miserables. Thought I was moving the movie version up in my queue. Lighting is awesome and the cast was great. Anyway, I loved it and now I'm looking forward to the movie even more.

The downside is that I'm singing the songs constantly--a problem because I don't know all the words yet and my husband finds it annoying. I know some of the songs because I grew up singing them, but the rest is new to me.

Watched The Illusionist again.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Faith, if you liked the 2009 outing, this one is even better. It is a ball for anyone - and, speaking as a lifelong Trek nerd, for the fans, it's a *gift*. It's worth seeing on the big screen!

I did like the first reboot. Thought it quite imaginative and reached beyond the Trekker fan base. Speaking of which, if you haven't seen this video yet, I highly recommend it. I don't usually repost links to commercials because...well...they're commercials, but this "Spock vs. Spock" spot is a hoot:

Hahaha! (And also another reference in the ad.)
