Poor Nicholas Hoult. Both of his big movies, Jack the Giant Killer and Warm Bodies, have been pushed back to 2013. I was especially looking forward to Warm Bodies, because Jonathan Levine’s track record is incredible so far: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, The Wackness, and 50/50. Ah well. Maybe I’ll just have to do a Skins UK rewatch.
Saw The Decoy Bride last night. It’s…not great. Probably worth it if you love David Tennant and Kelly MacDonald like I do, but in general it is a pretty generic romantic comedy.
RDJ’s wife gave birth to a baby boy yesterday! I’m getting to an age where guys being cute with their kids is sexier than almost anything else, so this is pretty exciting news. Who feels the same way?
The River premiered! I’ve been hearing about it since last summer, so it’s about goddamned time. I always have really high hopes for genre shows, because they’re so hard to get right, especially on network TV. I have to say, I was a little iffy on it during the first half, but then they got me with that fucking creepy doll tree in the second.
I can tell that a few of the characters are going to get on my nerves, but otherwise I’m in. DVR season pass is set.
To be fair, this did have a pretty good shot at maintaining my viewership because of my lover Joe Anderson. So pretty. But when will someone let him be British?!
Total Film has woken Michael Fassbender up. When he strides into the London hotel suite where we’re waiting for him he admits jovially that he just “dropped off next door”…
No surprise. The 34-year-old Irishman has been busy jetting around the globe (“Toronto, New York, then back here, then New York again and then Paris…” he reels off when we ask why he’s pooped) promoting two awards botherers; stark (in every way) sex addict treatise Shame from Steve McQueen, and David Cronenberg’s psycho-sexual period drama A Dangerous Method….
I looooooooove Midnight in Paris. It’s just…wonderful and lovely and magic. It’s also filled with great performances like Allison Pill and Tom Hiddleston as Zelda & F Scott, Kathy Bates as Gertrude Stein, Adrien Brody as Dali, and Corey Stoll as Hemingway. Now, all of these were played exactly how I imagine these mythical creatures to be, but maybe none moreso than Hemingway, who was an arrogant misogynist dickhead but also compelling and mischievous - I’d totally hit it.
That look Matt Czuchry gave after the nature of Will & Alicia’s relationship was questioned? Some of the best acting on the show this season, no joke. Cary barely had any lines this episode but he was still so, so good.
