I Command You, Shake That Money-Maker!  
I'd like to give much gratitude and thanks to those who gave their birthday wishes to me yesterday. This entire week I've been semi-stressing over college work, since I've been preparing myself to give a presentation, assignments to finish along with studying for exams. It was such a wonderful thing to wake up to on a Monday morning, considering that I hadn't mentioned it prior. So thank you, everyone.

In other news, I just recently watched the full-length trailer of Marie Antoinette, starring Kristen Dunst. I know there's been some conflicting opinions about the mixture of that specific time period and somewhat altering and modernizing the elements, however I'm quite looking forward to the film. True, it's not a documentary-like era film that we've been familiar with. It's supposedly based upon The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette, in which there are details describing the sudden change with placing a young girl in a position that she was entirely unprepared for. It may not be as sophisicated or politically/historically accurate as some other historical films have been, but I see this as a stylish interpretation meant to be fun, interesting, and overall unique in telling the story of the Queen of France not intended to be completely serious at all.

So yeah, there is my thoughts on that. Plus, the costumes and settings are simply gorgeous.

Here's my simple, and very brief, reaction from last night's Heroes: Holy. Fuck. Can this show get any better with the suspense and character developments and discoveries? Claire was amazing and rocked hardcore in the end (I want to hug the girl, poor thing). Niki is just awesome all-around, and I love her evil alter ego going all badass on that thuggish asshole. Terminator!Hiro from the future was TOO COOL for words. Peter is such a cutie. Mohinder, dude, love you to bits but if you didn't believe in your father's work why did you pursue Nathan in a public place about being in danger? Anyway, Claire's father still of the creepy, the black dude still mysteriously evil.

So, um, conclusion? Love this show! Waiting until next week is going to kill me. But then again, I say that after every episode. Heh. Yeah, that was just a tad over the brief reaction, but still. I'll hopefully have a fuller description and review somewhere after this week, along with the other episodic reviews that I still have to write up.

Niki rocks it hardcore. I will never understand why she is so hated.

I've read comments and opinions from others stating that they thought her superpower/ability was too "weird" (that reasoning alone makes me go WTF?), or that they thought she was a bad example of a parent to Micah because of her decisions. While I understand the decisions part, I really can't comprehend the hatred towards her. Give it time for the character developments to actually, you know, develop! Seriously.

Niki is just plain awesome, no question about that. Especially after last night's episode.

Yeah really its not that far into the series. I personally am not that keen on Hiro even though everyone seems to love him. LOL. Hes funny but definetly not a fav of mine. I think Micah understands a lot more than the fans are giving him credit for though. Just have to wait and see I guess.

Yes last nights was awesome. I love how this show gets better every week. very rarely do shows do that.

p.s. I want to see Marie Antoinette btw. I like Kirsten Dunst though.. soo.

Micah definitely has more to him than meets the eye. Of course he's a boy genius, but I have a theory that he's fully aware of what's going on. Or he could possibly have a power of his own that we don't know about....

I love Kristen Dunst, too. Marie Antoinette is on my list of Must See films.

It's such an addictive series. Once you get sucked in, there's no turning back. :)
