Saw this recently - managed to catch it as it left cinemas in the UK. Absolutely loved it. Jennifer Kent's direction was superb and the overbearing use of silence was just inspired. Also of note, the two leads: Essie Davis is just fantastic - conveying all the emotions that she does. If that performance isn't award… »
They seriously could have just looped those few seconds of that footage for the entire trailer and it would've been better than anything ever. »
When she throws a punch, she doesn't always connect. When she jumps off of something, she doesn't always land on two feet. She's a much more rougher and realistic kind of crime fighter.»
I agree - Routh has been knocking it out of the park with Ray Palmer/Atom. I was very happy to see him 'bounce back' from Superman Returns with his performance in Arrow. I'm not sure how much traction he'd get from a series of his own, however, he already feels a little too integrated into the Arrow-verse for me and a »
The PASTY BARM. Native to my home town of Bolton, England. Basically a Pasty (meat, potato, enveloped in pastry), in a barm cake. While it may look like the most beige food on the face of the planet, it tastes freaking delicious and goes down a reet* treat on a winter's day. »
Reasons: Many and varied:
1. You think video game glitches are scary? What happens when one of these ultra real, hard light characters start going all Fallout New Vegas? I'd lose my ever-loving shit.
2. "My likeness was used in a holonovel: how my 'holoclone' was used in sordid programs" by Dan Entwistle, … »
Victor Doomachev will write a horrible review of it on his blog, setting off the chain of events that will lead to a thrilling video-reply face off between the FF and Doom on YouTube. »
The Doctor is a terrific character - it could be that he's the one more likely to score any kind of redemption arc. I mean, he's done terrible things but they were mostly to terrible people. Considering what Whitehall did to his wife (easily one of the most disturbingly excellent things this show has done), I'm quite… »
I always thought Eddie Marsan would make a good Winston. Partly because he's awesome, partly because he's who I imagine when reading the book. Paul Bettany wouldn't be a bad shout either.
+1 for Greengrass, too. »
"Daniel, can you open this for me please?" May just be the best dialogue rug-pull I've read since "I did it thirty-five minutes ago".
Also: shooting the fourth witch without a warning. Brilliant. »
I'd like it to finish on television, personally. I can't imagine how they would make a theatrical finale to a series that would've run for six or seven series that would - presumably - need to be welcoming enough for newcomers as well as contain the key story threads that would've sustained the series (and its fans)… »
As much as I enjoyed Frank Grillo's Crossbones in Cap 2, I'm not sure he could carry off the big bad in Cap 3. I hope I'm wrong, of course.
Also: props to Grillo for making The Purge: Anarchy halfway watchable - though that movie did make me realise that Grillo would make an awesome Punisher... »
This is going to get gross pretty quickly:
I was on the phone to my dad when all of a sudden I was interrupted by another call - the call... of nature. Instead of doing the reasonable thing and hanging up so I could attend to this emerging situation, I instead decided to place my brand new smartphone between my head… »
Come on now. I like a little bit of sarcasm every now and then, but you know they've made a few of them already: »
