Week 2. I am still at the anger phase about my King dying. Actually depression, bargaining and denial are happening to me too. But there shall never be acceptance. As God is my witness, there shall be none.
So Thrones is getting a panel on Comic Con this year again and D&D won't be there. That's too bad, I was hoping someone is gonna ring that bell and yell "shame!" at them throughout that thing.
Liam Cunningham and Carice van Houten will be there. Stephen is not gonna be there.
He is still in his cave.
Distancing himself from that shit.
Martin is doing the same. Not in his cave but a mansion both by the money earned from our tears.
Why, George? Why out of so many writers in the world you had to chose these ones?
I had so much fun adding some of those. If this mess gets any Emmy nominations for writing I'm gonna laugh my ass off.
Iain Glen is gonna be on CC too, but not SD one, Tampa one. This is great. I don't think he was there before and I bet every single female who gets to that microphone is gonna beg him to call her 'Khaleesi'.
I actually had a dream last week that I met GoT cast and Michelle Fairley was busy taking pictures with cast mates but Iain and Emilia took pictures with me.
God, I'm messed up.
BOOK SPOILERS It''s really mesmerizing how they are trolling people with that whole 'Kit is not coming back' thing. I believe some of the actors are genuinely clueless about the theories. It's also possible that given how D&D love to shit all over the source material they will actually not bring him back. Hey, just look what they did with Winterfell this year. These people are dangerous. END OF BOOK SPOILERS
I just hope someone took Stephen out for a drink. Good Lord, after 3 years they finally let him play in the Sun and this is what happens. These fucks.
I know I was supposed to review Spy but I had really awful week at work again and I'm exhausted. Few times I actually passed out on the bed right after coming home.
The person I work with this month (each month I get two different people who assign me stuff to do) has been super mean to me. Seriously it's like the rendition of Miranda Priestly asking
Andie if she fell and smack her little head on the pavement (implying
she is a moron) all month long.
You know, my dog's hairdresser earns more than me and I am a law graduate. I don't think I'm gonna try any harder at this job. No respect, no trying hard is my motto.
So I did the
only thing I could do.
I took a day off today.
That's right no more going to Satan's butthole my office this week.
While I've been having a shit week, Gustav was enjoying his and got a haircut today. He also has a new girlfriend. Her name is Luna.
My dog has better love life than I do.
No wait. My dog has better life, period, than I do.
I saw Jurassic World and I legit cared more about CGI dinosaurs than people in this movie. Those poor guys were just chillin' on that meadow and that hybrid dino killed them! It was so sad. The film was actually pretty scary for children, I think. I'm still baffled how it earned so much money.
Pratt was good but his character was so cliched. Howard was lovely, I wish she was the one given badass stuff to do. I liked her running in these heels. Girl power! The kiss between her and Chris was super cute but overall the film was forgettable. I need to get my hair color to be like hers. Mine is more 'angry carrot' right now.
I saw Dark Places this week. It was a very faithful adaptation, which after seeing the crap show that was season 5 of Thrones I really appreciated. In spite of being miscast Theron was really excellent. The movie needed better production design and bigger scale but it wasn't a disaster. It's worth seeing if you like Theron and Flynn's books.
I also saw Identity Thief. It was so-so. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't really anywhere near Melissa's other comedies. But I did love her performance - it was so heartfelt and she had incredible moment during the dinner scene.
I'm not sure what Legend is but I will sure as shit see it ----->
Hannibal got canceled and people are disgruntled. I find it very
amusing - it was a miracle the show went on as long as it did on NBC. And
honestly, it's probably the most overrated series on TV now - last year
the atrocious acting of Michael Pitt and the finale that just kept
bringing dead people back to life, this year there is barely any plot just
Dancy walking around having his bizarre visions. Add to that Gillian
Anderson, looking like she is heavily sedated (how is she getting
praised for her performance?) and it's truly no wonder there was so
little audience tuning in. Memory palace? Abigail showing up to have her
throat slit again? Will 'forgiving' Hannibal? It's just so stupid.
Apparently the fans of the show are actually calling Netflix begging them to pick up the show...
I'm not here to judge.
I don't much care, give how Armitage is only gonna be in few episodes and that's it.
Oh him and Dancy are gonna be on Comic Con too.
I'll tell you what is a good show - Penny Dreadful. It took me several
months but I finally caught up (seriously if I manage to find one day
I'm not tired enough/have the time to watch anything these days it's a
miracle - I started watching Daredevil back when it premiered and I am
still on episode 6 and it's not because I don't like the show - I really do - but I work 8h a day, study for 2h, play with Gustav whenever I can and collapse and nap for several hours so it's really hard to watch anything other than 1 honest trailer and few scenes with Stephen per evening).
The show is so well written, it actually keeps getting better and better. The performances are so good, the music and the production design are wonderful.
It's also fucking edgy as hell - they killed a newborn, ripped out his heart and put it inside a doll.
The first season's antagonist was kinda weak but season 2 has witches and the main one is played by Helen McCrory who is seriously killing it in everything I saw her in, she is also excellent on Peaky Blinders.
Can Stephen please get on either of those shows?
I haven't seen the premiere of True Detective yet, but surely this can't be as bad as people are saying...yes?
