The other night my roommates and I tried to watch Bronson (mostly for Tom Hardy.) I kinda liked it and wanted to finish, but it didn't make it past the "half-hour test" for the others -- to artsy and WAY too violent. I'll get back to it when I can.

So instead I convinced them to watch Four Brothers with me. Four Brothers! That's another one I came to via fandom. There was a lot of crossover writers with The Outsiders fandom back in 2007 when I was obsessed with S.E. Hinton, so when I finished reading everything in The Outsiders section on ff.net (YEAH. THAT OBSESSED) I wandered over to Four Brothers.

Rewatching it, I realized how badly it fails the Bechdel test, but it did inspire me to dig up this one fix-it I never finished.

I forgot the rules of finding decent fic on ff.net -- you start by finding one good writer and looking at who they favorite and who favorites them and start branching out. Normally it takes a really long time before you explore one entire bundle. (And only go through the actual fandom page if you're empty-handed and desperate.)

And now I'm browsing through a Four Brothers bundle. Let's be honest -- it hits the "brothers who will do anything for each other" AND "families of choice" buttons. (It is only now, while I'm in a canon with a very blatant family of choice, do I realize how many Inception fics stapled "Family of Choice" onto the Inception team. It's arguable, I guess, but their connection was far looser than some fics made them out to be. Huh.) Any day now I'll have to check what all the actors have done in the last few years.
