    Man of Steel

    By s. Thursday, June 27, 2013 , , , , , , , 37 Comments

    In the immortal words of legendary Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshal - "Awful bloody movie". I was left with a number of reflections other than this one as soon as the end credits of the new Superman movie Man of Steel came up on screen -  how the hell can a movie with Henry Cavill 1. shirtless 2. in a tight suit be so dull? How in the world Adams and Cavill had zero chemistry? Why did they make Diane Lane look like a homeless person? But among those questions there was also one request - don't ever let Zack Snyder direct a movie again.

    Performances I Love: Stephen Dillane in The Hours

    By s. Wednesday, June 26, 2013 , 20 Comments
    Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel I can't go through another one of these terrible times and I shant recover this time. I begin to hear voices and can't concentrate so I am doing what seems to be the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I know that I am spoiling your life and without me you could work and you will, I know. You see I can't even write this properly. What I want to say is that I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. Everything is gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can't go on spoiling your life any longer. I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been. Virginia

  • First of all - happy summer solstice everyone! As usual I'm going to celebrate it and I'm going to my friend's cabin in the woods for the weekend, so there will be no posts for two days and if the cabin is filled with scary crap like in the movie I'm probably not coming back.

    Richard Madden Appreciation

    Hey, remember 3 weeks ago when Robb was still alive and we still had hope? If his storyline taught us anything it's: never bang a nurse. And if you absolutely have to - for the love of God, don't marry her.

    Seriously, though, today on the occasion of Richard Madden's 27th birthday I've been continuing my frantic art making for tumblr meme and I realized it's unbelievable how much I'm going to miss him and his on-screen mother Michelle Fairley on the show. Though because of the writers ridiculous bias towards Daenerys, Robb and Catelyn didn't get enough of screen time, it's mostly because of Madden and Fairley that it was impossible not to want good things to happen for the Starks.

  • I'm still disgusted about the finale of Game of Thrones. How the hell can you call an episode Mhysa and not feature Mother Merciless in it? And if you don't know the book - for the love of God, don't google that phrase. I cannot believe I have to wait another season for this. But her eyes were the most terrible thing. Her eyes saw him, and they hated. What pisses me off the most is that the track Mhysa would actually be perfect for the scene - fuck me, there is even this little gong in the end of it! Let me show you my expression during Dany surfing on slaves ending by using one of he many priceless "Edmure is horrified" gifs ------------------------------------------------------------------->

    Game of Thrones 3x10 Mhysa

    By s. Monday, June 10, 2013 , 34 Comments
    They've made a huge mistake. That is the first thought I had after seeing the finale to season 3 of Game of Thrones. I usually defend the writers but I don't know what they were thinking - Mhysa contains some of the worst decisions they have made in the show so far. To illustrate how much of a wasted opportunity that finale was - before seeing it, I'd say season 3 is the best season of the show so far. After seeing it, season 1 still holds that honor.

    Unusual. That is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about Stoker. The film is unlike anything I've seen recently - the director Chan-wook Park has very unusual, vivid style and his movies always feel like stepping in a very weird and creepy dream. Stoker is his English language debut and the film blends between usual Park's style and this new component which is the story that is much more approachable than any other told in Park's movies yet at the same time it's very hard to understand what drives the characters and guess what lies ahead.

  • It is my great pleasure to announce that as of today I'm officially a law school graduate with the master's degree. I defended my dissertation today and got an A. An A! Me getting an A during law school is as rare as a unicorn crapping rainbows.
  • For the love of God If you watch Game of Thrones and don't know what happens in recent episode/haven't seen it yet leave this blog now.
  • Ladies and gentlemen, let's weep.
  • “Nothing will happen to you. Nothing. I could not stand it. They took Ned, and your sweet brothers. Sansa is married, Arya is lost, my father’s dead … if anything befell you, I would go mad, Robb. You are all I have left. You are all the north has left.”

    Game of Thrones 3x09 The Rains of Castamere

    It is here. The dreaded and anticipated Red Wedding has happened and we are left with all our anger and grief. I'd be at loss to think of a sequence that I consider more cruel or more shocking. George R.R. Martin books were filled with prophecies and signs written in a way that as I reached that chapter I still didn't know what will happen. And then everything fell into place.
