Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Disappointing.

While Julianne Moore is delicious as the Big Bad, it almost feels like a retread of the first one. And that had the element of surprise on its side. Read more... )

But DAMN, Pedro Pascal is fucking hot.

IT

It's good and the kids are great. It reminds me of the cast of Super 8 and Stranger Things, that their chemistry made the whole thing so much better. Although I kinda wish it was a mini-series, instead of a movie, because I'd rather spend time with this set of kids than the ones in the Tim Curry-led show.

Limitless

I'm starting a rewatch of Limitless, and seriously, I'm still super-pissed that they cancelled this show. It was a fun procedural with an entertaining lead in Jake McDorman. I can't believe they didn't give it a 2nd season at the very least!

Raiders of the Lost Ark

While I appreciate the rakish sexiness of Han Solo, I think that nothing can compare to peak Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones.

Gane of Thrones

I hope Cersei dies a most horrible death, the worst death ever in Games of Thrones.

Harry Potter & Dumbledore

They've been showing the Harry Potter movies on repeat for the past week. I've seen Sorceror's Stone to Order of the Phoenix. You know what I've noticed? Dumbledore was more benign when he was played by Richard Harris. Maybe, Prisoner of Azkaban was a darker book than the first two but the moment Michael Gambon appeared, Professor Dumbledore seemed like the manipulative asshole that I (and some segment of readers) think he is.

I mean, Richard Harris probably played the Professor as someone you wouldn't expect to put Harry in trouble with the endgame of killing him in the end. There was that air of plausible deniability in his portrayal; Michael Gambon was shockingly dark and his beard, full of secrets.

Baby Driver

It's an entertaining movie, and Ansel Elgort was a serviceable lead. I wonder what would have happened if Edgar Wright got a more charismatic actor for Baby.

Spiderman Homecoming

I really really like it. It's the best Spiderman movie since Spiderman 2, and probably part of the reason why is that it features the best villain we've seen in the MCU (I just realized that Michael Keaton was the lead in Birdman *wink wink*). The main reasons why is that Tom Holland is the best Spiderman/Peter Parker like ever, and the story/movie lets him be the kid that he really is. It also reminds me of Ant-Man because it's really a small movie, masquerading as a blockbuster -- the story and conflict is localized, the concerns (especially Peter's) are not about the fate of the world/universe but are serious all the same.

Count of Monte Cristo

I'm currently watching and I'm always pleasantly surprised to be reminded that Henry Cavill was in this. He was such a baby in this, but even then, his wide, beaming smile is recognizable.

I don't know if I read it somewhere or it's just that I really really want it, but if Wonder Woman 2 is not going to be set in the present, I want it to be Diana's adventures with Steve's band of three plus Etta. Also, I don't need to see Etta on Paradies Island (although that would be amazing), I just want her in the fray with Diana at one point and then showing off one of those Amazon spin attacks: "Your mother taught me a little something."

I'm currently watching Doom on HBO. I just realized that The Kid is now Leonard on Grantchester.

Ben Platt - For Forever (from Dear Evan Hansen)



I didn't know the story of Dear Evan Hansen before I heard this (Thank you, Stephen Colbert!) so listening to this song I thought Evan had a crush on whoever the friend he's talking about. I totally relate but Google tells me I'm wrong and it's about Evan lying about being friends with another character (Whatever, it still sounds like an unrequited love song to me, like On My Own). I desperately want to watch Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen.

What, I'm not crying; you're crying.

Captain America Fic Rec

This was great; it's a genius idea of marrying the Ghost Army with Captain America. I kinda love the idea that Captain America himself is an urban legend to scare the Germans.

I was looking at pictures of the Disney Princesses. I just realized that all of them are the lead characters in their own movie...except Jasmine.

Read it

I was just reading through posts when I started reading this. It's about a grandmother who mistakenly summons a demon and mistakes him for her grandson Todd. It's fucking great.

Sense8 Season 2

I just binged watched it and the long hiatus was worth it. It's better in so many ways than the first season. I was one of those people who was not really enamored with the show, and joked that I only stay for the clusterfucks (sorrynotsorry) but I'm glad I gave it another chance.

I think that the Wachowski excel at world-building -- I mean, look at The Matrix and Jupiter Ascending -- so it's fascinating what they cooked up for us in the 2nd season. Read more... )
