    Mt. Rushmore of Movies - 4 most epic Sam Rockwell dancing scenes

    By s. Wednesday, February 21, 2018 28 Comments
    One of my favorite people on this planet and someone I love so much that I won't murder him for losing Frost/Nixon bluray BEFORE he even watched it, m.brown is hosting his, apparently, annual Mt. Rushmore of Movies blogathon.

  • watched Cloverfield Paradox. That was terrible. The only good thing about this film is all the puns people made about the funniest The IT Crowd episode - "I'm disabled. ARM DISABLED". This was not only a horrible movie, it absolutely wrecked the entire franchise. I mean it is so fucking stupid that it manages to ruin all the previous AND upcoming movies.
  • Why are there monsters? Because they messed up something in space. 
  • Why are there several dimensions? Because they messed up something in space. 
  • Why is any of this stuff happening? Because they messed up something in space. 
  • Why is Sam Rockwell so hot? Because they messed up something in space. 
  • Why can't m.brown find his Frost/Nixon DVD? Because they messed up something in space. 
  • There is actual scene in this trash where a scientist says that if they do the thing which they did they will unleash aliens, monsters and beasts from under the sea. So they basically explain the 'rules' of the franchise in one extremely dumb, extremely lazy exposition-filled moment. 
  • The whole thing was almost unbearable to watch and it's only February but it's definitely going to be a strong contender for the worst movie of 2018.
  • Also wasting Gugu and Elizabeth like this should be punishable. Honestly the entire cast was so underused in this pile of garbage. 
  • Whenever I see Chris O'Dowd in anything I immediately have to follow that up with the full rewatch of The IT Crowd. It's just too funny. So that's what I've been doing this week. Also I'm sick and I don't really have the strength to do anything, so this is gonna be very short RF.

    Sam Rockwell's performance in "Jesse James" is some kind of a miracle

    By s. Sunday, February 11, 2018 , 19 Comments

    "There is this thing Sam Rockwell does...." is something that you can say about his every performance. How hilariously his eyes widen when he is displeased as someone is singing terribly during audition in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind or when his kid walks in the bedroom killing any hope of him getting to have sex with his wife in Poltergeist. The stutter, which actually happened accidentally in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. His occasionally high pitched voice he uses with such funny effect, for example in Frost/Nixon as shocked and appalled he quotes what Nixon just said "Daddy, you're the finest man I know?!". The way he grabs women by their clothes and pulls them into a kiss (Laggies/Welcome to Collinwood).  Or how he jumps down a small flight of stairs in Matchstick Men.

    And the dancing. Always the dancing.

  • Oh yeah. I REALLY liked that Mission Impossible 6 promo. Henry Cavill straight up stole that trailer from Cruise. That said, I was watching that trailer on my phone when it dropped at like 2 AM and I laughed out loud at the ending of it. How sure are we Tom Cruise didn't die during one of those crazy ass stunts and the wackos didn't bring him back, Chef in South Park style?
  • I mean, my God!
  • That trailer is so dope. The editing is amazing and I've been listening to that Imagine Dragons' song the whole week. With the exception of that awful Murder on the Orient Express promo their music is always so well used in trailers.

  • This is a footage from THR actors roundtable. I'll get to that in a moment, but let's just point out that every week this man is getting more and more adorable. 
  • I think I need to write a will at this point.
