(79) Attack, attack! + links

By Sati. Friday, May 17, 2013

  • I LOVE YOU HBO!!!!
  • But seriously, what a shame the person holding a camera didn't faint during the second gif moment. The camera would get lower...had I been there that would totally happen.
  • Why did he put on a robe? That's sexist. Talisa is naked the whole scene and Robb was not. That was just a terrible injustice done to me.
  • I hate Talisa. She is just too damn lucky.
  • Let me take a moment to remember what I was going to write. Those gifs above are quite distracting. 
  • Oh, yes. You would think that my favorite book moment would translate into my favorite TV series moment? Well, no luck there. But I have big hopes for the final scene of the season even though it will most likely be insanely frightening.
  • I've been listening to the closing music to the latest episode, which was Rains of Castamere, on repeat for most of the week. Why do I do those things to myself?
  • Game of Thrones facebook recaps are the funniest part of my week.
  • If I read one more post claiming Purple Wedding is this season I'm going to punch the wall.
  • Apparently no one was cast as Jinglebell. Are you kidding me? I want to hear the bells!
  • So freaking excited about Stephen Dillane finally being in next episode. Please God let the leeches scene happen. 
  •  This gif on the right is one of the best things ever.
  • There's going to be two week hiatus between Episode 8 and Episode 9. During that time I'll give season 3 recap treatment to the reason for the hiatus and the best episode of the series (and not just GoT) - Blackwater.
  • Lately I've been discussing the event Episode 9 will revolve around with a bunch of people and it's just fascinating because a lot of us, me included, actually added some disturbing images in our memory. It's like when people claimed they saw Rosemary's baby in the crib. This is such an amazingly written, atmospheric chapter. I think the whole of Game of Thrones relies on how they will handle that. This is the biggest thing to happen and one that some of us were waiting for years. Not because we want it to happen. But because in all of our masochism, we want to be paralyzed with fear and heartbreak. And because it will make for fucking incredible sequence.
  • I know I was supposed to publish my Iron Man 3 review this week but I've been learning criminal procedure this whole week and I'm exhausted. The only reason I'm even writing this post now is so I could have Richard Madden's ass on my blog.
  • I don't really care about this year's Cannes festival but both Florence Welch and Lana Del Rey are there which is wonderful. 
  • Nicole Kidman looked incredible on the premiere. So cool Christoph Waltz is in the jury as well.
  • I don't want to see The Great Gatsby but all of those Old Sport memes make me think this may be a truly hilarious unintentional comedy. I'll probably catch it on DVD, though, since I don't feel like wasting my money and time on that now.
  • I really hope I will defend my dissertation by the time June is over because my head is now in chronic pain. I just want it to be over and never have to look at this place again. Also I need to attach the copy of my diploma to my bar exam application and I need it before July. What's worse is that I need to include my CV. What the hell am I supposed to write there? Proud Jaime and Brienne shipper?
  • The new trailer for Pacific Rim is absolutely spectacular.
  • Last three episodes of Elementary were great. That picture of Natalie Dormer as Irene Adler is just breathtaking. She did such a tremendous job in the finale - she is now my favorite Irene Adler. There was an amazing twist in the finale, one that I see a lot of people have trouble with, but I absolutely loved it.
  • Yesterday series finale of The Office happened. It's actually one of my favorite shows, well up until the point Carrel left, but James Spader was hilarious in season 8. I caught up with the recent episodes this week and I absolutely loved that montage Jim showed Pam while we saw him talk with Dwight and Dwight finally realized he loves Angela. Angela shouting to Dwight "who the f---k drives like that?!" and him saying he loves her was jut incredible. The finale itself was quite sweet but it wasn't the greatest. Stay tuned for the very special Farewell to The Office post tomorrow.
  • The Big Bang Theory finale was really fun. Raj can finally talk to women without booze!
  • Gustav has a new, summer haircut:

    • I lost count of how many Lammies Fogs has won...is it 8? Anyways everyone should head over there and congratulate him on his much deserved wins. Let's just put a veil of silence on the answer to the question how many Lammies Cinematic Corner won, shall we?
    • But the biggest event in the blogosphere for me was obviously the fact that my favorite movie blog - Two Dollar Cinema - celebrated its second birthday! YEY!!
    • Brittani made an awesome list of bad guys that she loves. Her number 1 would be my number 1 as well. Oh, Tywin. I should hate you for what you are about to do... so how come I love you so much?
    • Eric chose his 10 favorite tracks by the band I love - The National
    • Josh, Keith, Ruth and Rorschach Reviews made posts about The Great Gatsby. Courtney wrote a piece with her defense of the movie.
    • Chris reviews terrific Winter's Bone
    • In celebration of Mother's Day Stephanie shared the list of 12 memorable movie moms
    • Katy and ckckred shared their picks for Top 10 favorite The Office episodes. Katy also shared her favorite The Office moments.

    1. I wish you'd reconsider seeing Gatsby on the big screen. I've certainly made it abundantly clear that I'm a huge fan, although I may be the only one :)

      ...and your dog may be the most precious thing ever <3

      1. Things are just so hectic with my dissertation right now, even I wanted to I'm just so exhausted. If it wasn't for Game of Thrones my life would be bleak darkness right now :)


        Thank you! He knows it, he behaves like a celebrity :P

    2. That dude has a nice butt, he must work out.

      Did Natalie Dormer really paint that? If she did... she's good.

      I'm following the stuff at Cannes. The Met Gala red carpet is just small potatoes compared to the red carpet at Cannes... I want to have a film played at Cannes. Wear a nice suit and wear a new pair of Vans or something similar w/ whatever actress I'm working with by my side as I will let her soak up the spotlight.

      1. I'd watch the spin-off of him working out. I'll pay to see that :P

        Haha, well they implied her character did, although she only does copies of original stuff :P

        Yeah the dresses are truly stunning. MET Gala was crazy this year.

    3. I am stuck in horrible traffic. Horrible.

      This post has prevented some pretty serious road rage. Thanks so much!
      And don't worry about it... I know some other blogs that didn't win any Lammys. ( Congratz to Fogs, though?)

      1. You're welcome! Glad my posts are keeping people from rage, I myself should be angry about many things but I'm using The Dude philosophy. "I can't worry about this stuff, life goes on".

        Yes, the fact you didn't win the funniest writer or even got nominated undermines the whole thing for me.

    4. So basically, Game of Thrones is socially acceptable porn? (Better late or never, huh? :D)

      1. When it comes to female nudity? Absolutely. Two completely naked chicks last episode.

        When it comes to guys? No :( I had to wait 3 years to see Jaime and Robb's butts. And no full frontal.

        That's just...wrong :P

    5. I need to start watching Game of Thrones ;). But after the Doctor Who finale tomorrow I'll probably have time... and after watching The Great Gatsby (yes, I will... haven't read the book).

    7. I fell out of tough with The Office when Steve Carell left, but I did like the finale last night. A perfectly decent way to end that show. And yeah, that Pacific Rim trailer roooocks.

      1. I really liked Michael showed up - that ending scene was perfect.

        It's awesome, the CGI looks amazing and Idris's Apocalypse speech is so badass!

    8. Well that Game of Thrones gif set has peeked my interest quite a bit... :)
      Congrats on the nominations and thank you for linking my Office post. There were a few things I would've liked to change with the series finale, but all the characters ended up going where I thought they would.. I was very happy! I look forward to reading your post!

      1. I'm glad! You should really catch up on the show, things are about to get crazy :)

        I was glad everyone got a happy ending, it was so awesome to see Michael being so happy and Dwight and Angela dancing was so sweet.

    9. Thanks for the link! Hey I have a feeling you might actually enjoy Gatsby, don't write it out completely yet :D

      Oh boy, Robb-sessed are we? Well I don't blame you!! "...what a shame the person holding a camera didn't faint during the second gif moment." I know, right?? WOW, he's got to be a REALLY straight guy ahah. Gustav is just so precious, cute Summer haircut!

      Btw, a girl on Twitter whom I just started connecting with has a photo of her stroking RA's stubbly cheek. Sent you a tweet. Prepare to swoon.

      1. I got a headache just from watching the trailer, so I don't think I will enjoy the movie :)

        This show desperately needs more nudity. Robb nudity :P

        I saw it, amazing! I would totally never let go of him :)

    10. Lol, as usual LOVE the gifs :)

      Interested to hear what you think about Iron Man 3, looking forward to the review. As happy as I was for Fogs I wish they could've spread the love out a little bit more (I know I voted for you for "Funniest Writer" among other things)

      Thanks for the Linkage,

      1. I liked it, but the third act was kinda weak, I should publish it next week, the review is almost done.

        I'm glad Mettel got the best blogathon at least, she really deserved it.

        You're welcome!

    11. Moment of silence to celebrate Robb's ass.





      This week has been super slow.. even though the Lammy's were on full speed they got really... boring at one point due to one man winning all the awards but I guess this is how Leonardo DiCaprio feels when everybody around him are winning the Oscar.

      PS: I'm scared for episode 9... I don't know if I should read the book first and then see it or.. it doesn't really matter at this point.

      1. Let me join you in that celebration.




        :)

        Haha, yeah it's like most of us are Leo. Poor Leo :(

        The chapter is beautifully written...in a horrible and brutal way. I think you won't get to that part before the episode, it's 3/4 in the third book but it's one of the better chapters in whole story.

    13. Naked gifs of Richard Madden!! YES!!! Oh yeah, and thanks for the link! I had fun writing that post. There's a TWO week hiatus now? Somebody really hates me. I haven't got around to watching the Big Bang Theory finale yet, but I'm glad Raj is finally over that stupid "can't talk to girls" crap. That was never funny to me.

      1. Yeah, it was such a weird plot device it was fun at first but then it got boring. I cannot believe they kept him unable to talk to chicks for 6 seasons!

    14. Oh wait, I read that wrong. The break between episodes 8 and 9 isn't longer. Okay, I admit it. I came back to look at more naked Richard Madden.

      1. He should always be naked :P It's cruel they only show his butt now... :(

    15. It was 8, yes. ;) Thanks for spreading the news :D

      Meanwhile, good luck with your dissertation. School sucks, I hope you get done with it asap. :(

      1. I cannot wait for all of this to be over. But then it's 3 years of legal training but to completely honest I'll take all those exams over that fucking dissertation.

      1. Yeah I'll probably laugh at that movie, it looks pretty but I just hate that when directors try to wrap half-assed movies into pretty visual side.

        Thank you! :)

    18. Thanks so much for the link! I REALLY appreciate it. Well this is your night, right? Funny how now anytime I hear of Game of Thrones my mind moves to you. If you aren't the biggest fan.... :) Enjoy it tonight.

    19. Sati, you're killing me, I'm in the office, and you are throwing naked Rob Stark at me at 4 pm? I love you :D He looks amazing!
      That football match Jon Snow moment is priceless!
      I saw The Great Gatsby and it is really ok, I don't know why people bitch about it! Leo looks absolutely dreamy! Mulligan is annoying and underwhelming!
      Elementary is one of my favorite shows right now! I didn't see the Moriarty switch, it's really cool, but I still don't think we have met the real him!

      1. He is so hot, I really wish we saw a lot of him naked, it would at least be a justification for the whole Talisa subplot :P

        I think it would be really cool if she was really a Moriarty. She is a bit young but I like the idea of woman taking that role :)
