(259) Save yourselves, TWD fans + links

By Sati. Friday, October 28, 2016
  • So I almost shat myself when that stuff above happened in the promo for next episode. We are getting our very own Heat moment in Westworld - Hopkins and Harris in one scene at last!
  • Evan Rachel Wood hyped that episode and I have a feeling some mind blowing stuff goes on in it. I am so fucking glad I'm on my vacation right now (Day 2 of 19 so far!) so I can watch it live on Sunday at 3 AM. This show is everything!
  • Today HBO submitted 7 actors for Golden Globes consideration 
  • So The Walking Dead returned this week and it airs at the same time as Westworld. The Walking Dead got 17 million viewers and it knocked Westworld audience below 2 million. Why don't you people love yourselves? There is a wonderful show on TV and you watch this misery gorefest shitfest! Come on! WATCH WESTWORLD FOR FUCK'S SAKE!
  •  Game of Thrones treated its fans awfully by trolling Lady Stoneheart fans for years (which is my reason for no longer looking forward to the show, I probably won't even watch it week by week. And judging from the leaks I read about the show appears to be dumber than usual this year. One thing to say here - LOL. Cannot wait for those claiming it's amazing have a meltdown over it) but that was just a portion of their fanbase. The Walking Dead has literally shat on everyone. First of all it's just disgusting that they circled the promotion of two seasons around gruesome deaths of characters. They even had a showing of that premiere on the cemetery. What the fuck? Actual real people are buried there. Second of all, their treatment of the actors who played the victims. So instead of killing them off last season these two guys were forced to lie and pretend they don't know who dies. And finally this premiere was just so bad. Everyone figured out who will die because hardcore fans noticed which actors weren't there for majority of shooting. So it just felt exploitative as fuck. Which is disgusting. The characters and their fans deserved better than this. But that this ridiculous cliffhanger/ratings grab worked is even more disgusting. I was going to watch the show for JDM but damn, that show is just so bad I cannot bring myself to watch it.
  • Fortunately I saw a lot of people declare they are giving up on that one because the show just went too far with their trolling and disrespect for the fans. Save yourselves. Come to Westworld fandom. We have batshit theories and awesome show for you to watch.
  • So Gone Baby Gone was on TV on Saturday and since not much was going on where I live - which is my Westworld board and reddit for Westworld - I was like hey, let's watch it. Oh God. I did not like that movie 10 years ago when it was all the rage and I did not like it now. It's wonderfully directed but there is this one moment which is just fucking embarrassing where Casey Affleck figures the whole thing out in the pub and there are those expositions flashbacks of the scenes he wasn't in just to let the audience understand the whole thing. It was so bad. The film has great acting but fuck me, is that story dumb. Couldn't Morgan Freeman just adopt some kid? And that awful ending where they give the kid back to her mother's because she is her mother. Really? Why is this movie so acclaimed?
  •  I also saw Apollo 13 for the very first time.
  • Like I saw all of it. Took me two days but this is the first time I saw complete movie actually focusing on it and not kinda watching it on TV with one eye since...I don't remember.
  • It really hit me that Gravity and Argo borrowed so much from that flick. Gravity even has the exact same sequence where the rescue pod or whatever that thing is called is falling towards the Earth.
  • And seriously we need to address this - holy shit did Ed Harris look insanely handsome in this.
  • He is so attractive but he shares Fassbender's 'looks at least 20 years older than he is/my God why didn't you moisturize' issue. That movie was 20 years ago, but he looks 50 years older on Westworld right now. The guy is 66 yet if they tell us that Man in Black is fucking 90 years old, honestly I'll buy it.
  • I think Fassbender will age even worse. What is happening with these men, you guys?! Can't J-boo split his genes and like shower them with those?
  • No wonder he was Oscar nominated for this, that was a wonderful performance. I was surprised the actress who played Hanks' wife was nominated too, I swear some of those female supporting nominations are just odd to me.
  •  I also saw Bad Moms which was very funny. Kathryn Hahn was as usual spectacular and played such a funny character. Mila Kunis was a little tough to buy as a mother of such big kids but she was also very funny in this film.
  • Light on gossip this week since I usually read all the gossip sites at work and I have been on my vacation since Wednesday. So I really have no gossip for ya this week other than actual movie news which is...
  • ...Viola Davis' snot is officially being campaigned in Best Supporting Actress category for Award season. So we need to prepare ourselves for her getting up there and having another preachy and "important" speech and everyone giving her a standing ovation. And what's worse? Portman is gonna have two Oscars now. 
  • Ocean's Eight started shooting. I hope that dog is gonna be in the movie. Also Cate Blanchett's clothes is what is getting me excited for it.
  • I am 100% certain this movie will not be getting the backlash treatment Ghostbusters did. First of all while Ocean's trilogy is well known it isn't a classic like "Ghostbusters". Second of all, apparently instead of a reboot this is a spin-off with Bullock's playing Danny Ocean's sister. And finally I don't know why but I have a feeling no one will be trashing Cate Blanchett or Sandra Bullock as much as Leslie Jones. It's because they are more famous. Take a look at everything that is going on - someone with 10 twitter followers posts they were harassed, nothing. Someone with 10,000? Shitstorm. The more famous the actress, the less balls the trolls have.

      1. I watch all the episodes in 1-4 seasons then sorta and episode here and there but really stretching something like this over 2 hours and months between seasons is just awful :/

    2. The Walking Dead is getting so ridiculous. Even Game of Thrones at their worst never matches the stupidity of that show. I miss Darabont.

      Hopefully Westworld gains some viewers now that some "quit" TWD.

      Thanks for the link!

      1. Yeah I really hope a lot of people tune in today! That show deserves awesome ratings.

    3. You don't think Emma Stone has a chance? I heard Annette Bening has been getting talked up a lot too. I'm sure Viola is great, but I'm still rooting for Michelle Williams for MBtS.

      1. Well Portman reviews are so ridiculous it's practically Blanchett for Blue Jasmine all over again and she swept all the awards

    4. I'm glad you saw Apollo 13. It's in my top 10 favorite films. I love that film. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it was full of tension. I totally agree that Gravity took a lot from this film. Rightfully so.

      You're so right about Walking Dead versus Westworld. I have no idea why people are hanging on to this awful show. It's just so terrible and is probably the worst show on tv right now. Westworld is so wonderful. Seriously people switch to Westworld. 7 seasons is enough pain.

      1. Yeah it was so tense! And they really made all of those guys so likable, you truly wanted them to be all tight. Also it helps Hanks played the lead, it's impossible not to root for his characters!

        So glad you like Westworld! It's just such an intriguing show

    5. I'm still crossing fingers that our Oscar winning ladies are Stone and Williams, and I strongly feel it could happen that way. Stone's film is locked in to practically sweep the Oscars, winning BP, Director and a slew of techs, and her reviews are strong enough to validate her winning as well. And Williams was the absolute locked in frontrunner in Supporting until Viola stepped in, and I feel like the critics will favor her over Davis so she could gain momentum there.

      But...Portman/Davis is not out of the question, TBH.

      Apollo 13 is such a great movie. Yet another reason that the hate heaped upon Howard is so unfair. I get that he has an Oscar no one thinks is warranted, but his filmography is actually pretty impressive.

      I need to start watching Westworld!

      1. With OscarsSoWhite thing I see no scenario in which Davis will lose this one. We are still probably gonna hear how racist the Academy is just because a musical with white people wins over Fences.

        Westworld wipes the floor with GoT. I'm so sorry I have got you into this miseryfest :lol:

    7. Gah, Apollo 13 has been on my watch list for so long now, I really need to see it. I'm so behind on Westworld now it hurts! I mean, I'm like 2 episodes behind, but I don't even have a good excuse. Looking forward to reading your WW posts when I'm caught up though!

    8. I'll give Westworld a chance eventually but I'm still invested in TWD. Not quite ready to toss it aside.
