(99) Let's make sure every woman who sees Desolation of Smaug has medics waiting for her outside + links

By Sati. Saturday, October 5, 2013
  •  Everyone is losing their shit over Gravity. I'm definitely seeing it next weekend. Hell, I'd see it this weekend but I have high fever and I vomited 3 times today. I don't think Sandra Bullock spinning in space would help with that.
  • Today's post may actually be even less coherent than usual (if it's even possible) because my sinus infection has started manifesting in few new and exciting ways. I'm gonna have to do my least favorite thing on Monday. Go see a doctor. I wouldn't go but I really don't want to end up like Will Graham.
  • Interestingly, Gustav also got sick. He is all better now but at one point this week it was probably 3 AM, I was enjoying Mads in Casino Royale and then BAM! I heard a noise. First I thought it was just my ovaries exploding again but I figured maybe that's not it. So I left the room and that noise tuned out to be Gustav's diarrhea hitting the floor in several places in the apartment. I was the one to clean this up and that put me out of the mood to do anything, even watching the rest of the movie and staring lovingly at this. I'm actually so glad I have this sinus thing and can't smell a thing. I couldn't believe that a little Yorkie can poop this much.
  • On the bright side of the week, it turned out that I have a good taste. Or shall I say yet another proof of my good taste was presented. Practically all of my crushes are on Empire's 100 sexiest men list. Idris is there, Fassy is there, hell even Richard Armitage snack into the fist 20. Clooney's there, Henry Cavill, Lee Pace. The only thing is - why the hell is Mikkelsen on 25th place?  TWENTY FIFTH?!
  • I don't want to sound over dramatic but it's fairly clear God himself took his time to shape that man. No, this is not over dramatic. His name literally means gift from God
  • Ah, thank you Lord.
  • The lovely Adam Scott showed up on Conan this week to promote his new movie. It went hilarious as usual.
  •  New trailer for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug showed up online and it already looks like more fun than the first one. Richard Armitage. Lee Pace. Benedict Cumberbatch's voice. I sincerely hope they will station several ambulances in front of cinemas when this gets released.
  • Let's talk about American Horror Story: Coven. There was some sort of press screening this week and the response was very enthusiastic. Ryan Murphy revealed that this season's monsters are Minotaur and a serial killer called The Axeman. We also got this really cool promo for next week's premiere. Everyone is so excited about Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates but I just cannot wait to see Angela Bassett. She looks badass!
  • Some new photos of Jean Dujardin in Monuments Men showed up. He is literally the only reason I'm going to see this movie.
  • And finally Bryan Fuller, who should be proclaimed Saint for what he is doing for his show's fanbase, revealed freaky teaser poster for Hannibal season 2 AND the the first photo from the premiere episode! Oh, yeah! Hannibal looks freaked out. Shit will get serious, people!

      1. Thank you! I should be healthy soon, I always have health problems around October when the weather fucks up. Gustav is all right now, he is the healthiest creature in our household :)

        Yeah I hope it will be awesome!
        You're welcome! :)

      Gravity has been on my must-see list for like two years. I'm going to see it Monday and cannot wait! :D
      Angela Bassett is one of my queens - she is amazing!

    4. There were times in Gravity that even I felt dizzy seeing Sandra Bullock spinning so much! And I was perfectly healthy. Hope you get well soon.

      American Horror Story looks to have quite a cast there. Kathy Bates is born for evil roles! She just creeps me out.

      1. I thought so, it looked pretty hard to watch in trailer alone :)

        She is going to be so awesome in this role!

    5. LOL at the sound of your ovaries exploding. Mads can do that. I'm still annoyed that my theater had The Hunt for 4 days then go rid of it. I loved Gravity, which is surprising because I didn't give a shit about it until I heard everyone raving. At least it lives up to the hype. Thanks for the link! I hope you feel better soon, and I'm sorry Gustav got sick on you.

      1. He sure can :) What? Damn! I think American distributor is really screwing this movie's chances - with the proper campaign this would got a lot of award love.

        I really hope I'll see Gravity this weekend, the reviews got me so psyched!

    6. Mads really is... uhm... yes, I see what you meant with the ovary explosion-thing.

      Hope you feel better soon + I absolutely love these posts. Just saying.

    7. Thanks for the link Sati! Oh no, sorry to hear you have a fever. Yeah better not see Gravity until you're well though it didn't make me nauseous like Parkland did w/ all the shaky cam stuff.

      The Hobbit 2 trailer is just epic!!! LOVE seeing Richard and Lee getting more screen time, too much eye candy in this film! Oh I love that Conan vid w/ Adam Scott, it was hilarious!

      Speaking of epic, LOVE your Links post, as always!

      2. So how are you feeling today Sati? Better I hope.

        So what's the best Adam Scott film, I don't think I've seen any of his films where he's got a prominent role. Is Friends with Kids any good?

      3. A little better, but I'm in the middle of looking for a job so it's not helping :)

        I haven't seen this one, I only know him from Parks and Recreation and he is great on that :)

    8. I watched 'Gravity' yesterday and I would say that it was not bad. I would recommend it, but it is not like something I will remember for a very long time.
      Oh and, I just love your blog Sati!

    10. Hope your sinus infection is better!

      Look forward to your thoughts on Gravity.

      By the way, there have been whispers that Jean Dujardin could be a potential Best Supporting Actor contender. ;)

      1. Thank you!

        I did read it but I'm a bit skeptical - his part doesn't look big and there is such strong competition this year :(

    11. Hope you're feeling better, as is Gustav! I think this post only needs a picture of Idris and that's pretty much your most complete post ;)

      Thank you for the link as always and everyone loves a pug gif!

    12. "I heard a noise. First I thought it was just my ovaries exploding again"
      hahahhaa!

      Gravity comes out in the UK early November - ughh.

      Monuments Men looks so crap. Dujardin better be worth it.
