i also kinda think ishmael is sorta hot... and starbuck.. and in my imagination, queequeg's tattoos are pretty sexy.. just drop me off on the boat and i'll hang with them all.  but i may have mistakenly read the book during some formative adolescent years. 

 

and.. Brom Bones from sleepy hollow.. cause he was so BAD. 

 

and the robert jordan from FWTBT, cause a man who can blow things up is always sorta sexy. 

 

 

 



I have SO been looking for a way to get DH to stop suggesting Brom as a name for the newbie. I may have just been able to convince him with your "so BAD".


Mooner from Elsewhere, by Will Shetterly.


nooooo... i think i have to say, bad meaning le sigh = good.  i think brom would be a fantastic name!  team hubby and Baby Brom!

Severus Snape.  Yep.  His kind of dark aloofness is just so appealing--LOL.

Seriously, he makes me weak in the knees.  Not so much his character in the books, but in the films!  Wow.  Alan Rickman is HOT!

It seems as though they are strong feelings about Snape.  If I were to have a poll, it would go something like this:

 

1...Book or movie: ICK! ICK! ICK!

2...Book, no,  but Alan Rickman as Snape? YES, OH MY YES!

3...Book and movie: HOT! HOT! HOT!

 

What fun!

You might like "Truly, Madly, Deeply".  It's a sweet, small movie.

Love it! 

 

Dare I say it?  I hope he's not nominated for an Oscar for Snape. Nominate him for something a little more substantial, heaven knows he deserves it.  But not for Snape.

Agreed.  Even though I love Alan Rickman, and love his Snape, it doesn't come even close to some of his better roles.  "Truly, Madly, Deeply" and his Sheriff of Nottingham were great examples.  Part of it for me is that I've always been just a tad bit disappointed in the Potter movies as opposed to the books.

 

Edited to add: read the article.  I forgot about Galaxy Quest :)

I imagine that if I had never read the books (several times each...) and had nothing to compare them to, I would have found the movie series (nearly) as compelling as a stand alone, and such wouldn't have been so disappointed. then again, during several of the movies I remember thinking "I hope everyone in this theater has read the books, because otherwise that made NO sense!" I would like to see Rickman nominated for this AND for future "meatier" roles. As that article put it, Rickman is about the only hope for an acting nomination for the HP series.

Mostly I felt like when they edited the story to fit into the allotted time, they chose parts and dropped others and I wouldn't have done it that way.  "Half-Blood Prince" was really bad this way, dropping so much of the Prince's writing that occupied so much of Harry's time in the book.  "Phoenix" was incomprehensible as movie, but that book annoyed me.  The editor needed to throttle Rowling on that one, but still I kept reading it!  I couldn't pull away!  And the ending I had worked so hard to get to (it's amazing what we *will* read with toddlers running amok and baby at the breast, when we set our minds to it) and the ending was so disappointing.  I felt robbed.

 

Hm.

 

I am seriously, way, way offtopic.gif  So sorry, everyone!

Oooh, great point!  After seeing Silence of the Lambs I came out of the theater shocked and thoroughly intrigued by Hannibal.  I was just shaken by the whole movie, but I loved it, too.  Then I dreamed about Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal that night, feeling sorry for him and enthralled by him and that was disturbing!  I simply couldn't get the movie out of my head for days, so what did I do?  I went and read the book!   Thus cementing him thoroughly in my head.  I mean he was in there,  for weeks after.

What is it about complicated, damaged men that we find so appealing in literature?  Maybe it's residual from our adolescence where the rebels won our attention over the smart and stable geeky types.  (The same ones who, 10 years later won our hearts after we had ditched the rebels as hopeless, self-absorbed boys.)  

 

Ooh, ooh, Caleb/James dean from East of Eden.  Did I remember the character's name correctly? It's been a couple of decades.   All is a-swoon when I see James Dean on screen.  (I did read the book, I promise!)

Sheepish.gif Right! I dated those rebel types in highschool. My sister met this kid and told me I would marry him. A silent VERY geeky kind. I met him the first time and informed her she was VERY WRONG.,. annnnd four years later here him and I are :)

Mainly I wanted to quote this just because it looked cool.  Oh, dear, an HP forum?  My daughter finally let me start reading #2.  I told her about the dementors in #3, and she grumped because I wouldn't read that to her straight away.  So, I was relieved when she agreed to #2 first.  And there it was: Snape as sallow-skinned, hook nosed, thin man in black robes.  Just like I remembered:  Homer Simpson's boss!  (What was his name anyhow?)  

 

So much more fun for this ex-thespian (is there even such a thing as an "ex"- thespian?) to read aloud than silently to myself.

So I,m not the first one to have that image in my head.  Except my Burns-Snape has the black hair.

 

Oh, wait, is that supposed to be Voldemort?

Yes, it's Voldemort, or actually, Montymort. But I figure it fits anyway.
