Six Packs and Sex
Forewarning: This is a picture-heavy and sexually-suggestive post.
As you can guess from the title, this post is about the movies I've watched recently with hubby dearest. Yeah... now he's hubby dearest. The blockbuster season (by the way, the season starts earlier every year, doesn't it?) has officially started with the release of 300: Rise of an Empire and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Both are sequels to smash hits, although 300: Rise of an Empire isn't really a sequel if you know the story.
Hubby and I first watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier last Thursday, opening day. The day before, it only received three out of five stars in The Straits Times review. I trust The Straits Times movie reviews. The reviewers and I usually share the same opinions about movies. Since it only got three stars, I didn't expect the story to be like The Avengers or even Iron Man 3. Thor 2 was a disappointment, but I closed one eye to that for the delicious Chris Hemsworth.
When Steve Rogers aka Captain America came on screen, first thing I thought was his body looked so fake. I'm not into those beefcake, muscular, bodybuilding body types. So I thought Chris Evans swallowed too much steroids to get that body shape. He didn't look like this in The Avengers.

Hubby on the other hand, thought his body was a motivation. I doubt hubby dearest will ever achieve that inspired body in my lifetime. Anyway, the movie was alright. Captain America was my least favourite Marvel superhero, because he was too straight. He's down there in the list with Superman. I loved Black Widow though. Watching Scarlett Johansson in that tight bodysuit and kicking butts was worth the price ticket. She sure has a dangerously bootilicious pair of humps!
The more exciting movie which I watched was 300: Rise of an Empire. No matter what critics said about the original 300, I liked the movie. Not every movie must be smart. Once in awhile, I like to watch soft porn. All that half-naked men with Fabio-like bodies running around in a feature film, that's like watching soft porn. Besides, the effects were great, the soundtrack was great and the battle scenes were vicious. It's testosterone through and through. I like!
It's sequel, or not really a sequel, amped the blood and violence. The naval battle scenes were the best I've seen. My only disappointment was that Sullivan Stapleton aka Themistocles was no Gerard Butler aka Leonidas. I haven't even heard of Sullivan Stapleton and I had to google his name even now. Granted, Themistocles was no Spartan (he was Athenian) and he was more politician than warrior. But Gerard Butler had that man-ness about him. Maybe it was his thick Scottish accent.

Even in the super-duper intense and hot in the crotch sex scene with Artemisia (Eva Green), he didn't do it for me. It was Artemisia who I wished I was fucking! And that Botticelli boobs! Don't be surprised. I already know deep down I'm bisexual.
Themistocles and Artemisia negotiating a truce (seriously!)
Eva Green was awesome in the movie. She WAS 300: Rise of an Empire! She was vicious, manipulative, commanding and of course sex on legs. This was a part she was born to play! Angelina Jolie is still my number one girl but I don't mind having both of them together in bed. What? I never said I was a nice girl.
Vicious Eva Green as Artemisia
The result of watching these two macho movies? The sex afterwards. It's not how Artemisia would have done it, but at least I'm having it. Three nights in a row! More please!

Back to Work, the Oscars and Benedict
After sixteen weeks of maternity leave, I was back at work today. It was hectic and crazy, but I was mentally prepared for it. Although my Chinese co-teacher was on holiday for two weeks, life at work was still manageable.
I was so busy trying to meet the time-table and getting the class back into my system, that I didn't really have the chance to sit down and rest. I didn't realise that till I started feeling the aches on my knees when I got home and rested on the sofa. I think I'm getting old.
It just so happened that today was also Oscars day. Normally, if I missed the live telecast, I'd be able to catch the repeat, or I could even catch some live reporting on the internet, via eonline.com. But today, forget about it. Even when I got home, there was no chance for me to just sit down and watch the television. My children were going to catch my attention one way or another, so I'd only get frustrated if I tried to watch the Oscars.
Still, congratulations to the winners, although I've yet to watch any of the their movies. "Gravity"? Missed that in the cinema. "American Hustle"? Missed that too. "12 Years A Slave"? Was it even in the cinemas? I read that Benedict Cumberbatch was in it. I know. For a supposed "cumberbitch", I should know that.
Talking about Benedict Cumberbatch, I missed Sherlock's Season 3 debut on AXN last Thursday night. Although I managed to catch the repeat on Sunday, I really couldn't enjoy the show with all the ruckus my children were making that day. It was awfully frustrating!
Oh Benedict... Isn't he a hottie? *drool*
I was sleepy by 8pm, but I'm forcing to stay up till midnight. I thought if I were to sleep in early this week, my body clock would be messed up again the new term starts next week. With evening classes twice a week, do you think I could sleep in early? Don't think so.
