(139) Man of my dreams. This man may kill me.* + links
|By Sati.||Friday, July 11, 2014||Rambling Friday|
*a chilling line from new Gone Girl trailer, as well as the perfect description of my Fridays with movies featuring Stephen.
I'm gonna be watching Deja Vu tonight. This is what, apparently, happens in it:
I just...I just.... *noises*
Can you sense them? The inappropriate drunken live tweets that are coming tonight? Oh, yes.
He's a bit young in this one, though. 40? I like Stephen the most at 50.
Fine. Season 4 finale.
Oh, what? He's like extremely fine wine, that's what I'm saying.
Men are such bastards. They just get better looking. I'm gonna be like, decomposed and eaten by dogs when I'm 58. For a decade. Or two. Hell, three, if things at work won't slow down.
All of this aside (though it is essentially true), never ever forgive the Stephen wears a coat during sex scene moment.
Man, I hope Martin hauls ass, releases the new book before season 6 and Stannis kills some of the Boltons in Winds of Winter. But then again there is a good chance it won't be on TV because you know, Missandai and Grey Worm romance! Super crucial! I also hope Stoneheart ends up on the Iron Throne just to troll D&D.
Also apparently this happened. These hacks didn't shoot it. Ladies, we should seriously riot, am I right? !I'm not into him but I will, as a sign of solidarity.
There's this cool making of CGI on Thrones video which was obviously made into a gifset by someone. I feel you should see my tags because I don't think you realize just how far gone I am:
I had a very tiring week. This is now two shit weeks in a row. 'There will be less cases during holidays'. Well lucky me that less doesn't mean more complicated. Oh, wait, it does. This is seriously me Monday to Friday getting home from work ------------------>
I literally walk into the office and sit in silence for several minutes because of the pile on my desk, not even knowing what to do first.
....and it is a heatwave right now - God, I hate summer - so it was really awful.
But I got to see a movie this week, which actually didn't feature Stephen in any capacity, so that's a miracle and more on that later.
Let me get this straight - Lena Headey (who for the record did give my favorite female performance this year on GoT) got nominated this year for what wasn't even her best work in the show (season 2) but last year Michelle Fairley didn't get in for one of the finest performances I've seen in my life? What the fuck?
Only the Emmys can nominate a show 20 times in 1 year and omit the person who deserved the nomination the most. Pedro was perfect.
But I'm so so happy for Ramin Djawadi's score getting nominated for the first time (what the fuck with that too?!). His work is one of the 3 consistently superb things on the show (other two being Fairley's acting and Dillane's hotness)
When I saw this - "Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series – David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (“The Children”)" - I laughed for 5 minutes. Yes, they're such good writers! No glaring holes, no horrible omissions, no elf children with fireworks! Seriously, there were FOUR Tysha mentions.
Super happy for Angela Bassett being nominated - she was the best thing about last AHS, William H. Macy for Shameless, Gary Cole for Veep, and Idris and Matt. Why is Michael Sheen always snubbed everywhere? Emmy Rossum too.
Game of Thrones Comic Con panel was announced and Gwendoline and Pedro will be there! Nikolaj is scheduled to appear too, I predict some awesome exchanges between him and Gwen.
This is what Mads Mikkelsen did this week:
Hot guys surrounded by smoke are like a thing lately.
As great as the new Gone Girl trailer is and as much as I like the casting of Ben Affleck in this movie, this is just hysterical and very accurate.
My gifset which is hugely unpopular so far is something I'm proud of. Because fuck you, distorted effects and the color of blood and I finally learned how to make words look pretty on gifs.
Other than this trailer all the other ones I saw this week were shit - why are people calling Unbroken a sure thing in the Oscar race? It looks awful. Then there is this trailer for Wild which looks pretty bad too. Then there was Exodus trailer. So Disney is trying to rewrite famous fairytales to earn more cash and releases shit movies and now there is a trend to dig into religion too? It's Scott. I don't have any faith in him left after *vomits* Counsellor.
Lena Headey is vacationing with someone I'd equal parts want to 1. be 2. hug 3. be adopted by - Michelle Fairley (here they are, hugging) and also Conleth Hill who plays Varys and Sibel Kekillii who was Shae in Ibiza. They are all being super lovely and taking pictures as well as partying with mortal people not GoT gods like themselves aka fans of the show SPOILER Let's hope Lena gets her rumors straight this time. Though if they fucking make stone hearts together I'm gonna explode. Fingers crossed that the reason for everyone being there together is also because Michelle is not really out of the cast and her and Lena are catching up before big promo tour in s5. END OF SPOILER
I wish Stephen vacationed in Ibiza.
Check out adorable pictures of Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix on the set of new Woody Alllen's movie.
Speaking of pictures, my God, DiCaprio really let himself go, didn't he?
Colin Farrell is rumored to be in True Detective season 2. I did not see this coming, as he is Irish. I though it's gonna be all Americans in the main roles again
I started watching Vikings. It's pretty good so far. All I can say after 3 episodes - Lagertha, you are banging the wrong brother, girl.
So the movie that I finally saw is Under the Skin. I will review it sometime this month and I'm doing my artwork for entire review this time, not just the coloring but a lot of photoshop fun time, here's a little taste:
Now I just have to vent about one thing. You know how I can watch any shit, terrible shit but when it comes to animals and babies I break? Seriously, I've seen autopsies of grown ups and I was fine, but boom I read about a child crying because his/hers parents are getting divorced and I can't take it. So get this - there is a scene in the movie where the dog goes into water, it is implied he is drowning, mother goes after him and then the father and they leave the baby alone on the beach. They drown and then in another scene we see the baby at night closer to the shore, still crying and screaming and being terrified and at one point trying to stand up and failing and looking so lost. 15 seconds that moment took. 15 seconds and it was just horrific.
I had to fucking pause that movie for 5 minutes then. It was so distressing. The idea of that poor child being frightened because the parents weren't there was just too much. You know he was going to die there, scared and alone.
I hope someone hugged the baby for a long time after that scene was made.
I thought the movie was very good but this scene took from it - in the book the same idea - that these aliens have no empathy - here they just walked past the baby and left it - didn't need such drastic measures. Well, in the book they did castrate men. Grown men. But a crying baby left to die to get you to understand that? I'm still distressed. Not to mention it's kinda made it impossible for me to feel for Johansson's character, unlike in the book.
Seriously that was so awful to witness.
Stephen better be all kinds of shirtless in that movie I'm about to see.
