A little while ago, Mariko of GamerWife wrote a post on her geeky confessions. I thought I’d join in on the fun and share some of my own. While I try not to be embarrassed about my likes/dislikes/opinions, there are some things that I just prefer to keep quite about so I don’t receive a lecture from other well-meaning fans.
Try to be understanding. 🙂
My Geeky Confessions
I Love “Bad” Prequels/Sequels
Seriously, my love for movies like Prometheus, Terminator Salvation, and, even to some extent, the Star Wars prequels knows no bounds. People are always ragging on these movies, but I enjoy them in spite of their faults. Prometheus, especially, is one of my favorite movies to watch, and I don’t care a bit about plot holes. For me, it’s all about Elizabeth Shaw kicking alien butt (and Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba looking pretty, of course).
I Don’t Read Epic Fantasy (Including Game of Thrones)
In junior high and high school, pretty much all the fantasy books I read fell into the “Epic Fantasy” subgenre. I read Lord of the Rings a ton of times, the Wheel of Time series, and Terry Brooks’ stuff too. I burnt out on it all by the time I reached college. Now, I can’t stomach anything with a heavy dose of sword and sorcery and a high page count. I tried to read Game of Thrones, but I couldn’t do it (even though I do like some of George R. R. Martin’s other books).
I Don’t Care for the Marvel Cinematic Universe
People go gaga for The Avengers, Captain America, and the rest, but I just can’t get into them. While I like some of the comics (Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Widow, for instance), I just don’t care for the loud, huge action scenes of the movies and the fact that you have to see all of the films to know what’s going on.
I Like Rose Tyler
I haven’t come across many others who actually like Rose, but she’s been my second favorite companion of New Who (Donna being my top fave). I shipped her and the Doctor hardcore during their seasons together, and truthfully, it was a combination of their romance and David Tennant’s charm that got me hooked on Who in the first place.
Do you have any geeky confessions?
