A Throne for Avengers And Damn I Wish I Could Draw

I know it’s been sorta official for a while now, but Tumblr has exploded with Avengers gifs, pictures, quotes, etc. More specifically, it has exploded years worth of Tom Hiddleston paraphernalia, all of which I (no regrets) have been hoarding in my own personal Tom library. I mean, he’s no Chris Hemsworth, who I find just adoring by the way. Still, the man is quite charming, and he is just a brilliant actor.

Anyway, this is a sip of what I have stored away.

Aren’t they both just so lovely? I fan-girled and bought posters of both of them…anyway. You know I didn’t actually fall completely for Tom until I read this:

“TOM HIDDLESTON: Mark Ruffalo’s son. I kind of dedicate my performance to his son, his ten-year old, because he was on set a lot.  Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, the producer, they were enormously supportive on set.  They were very complimentary when they liked something that I was doing.  I would do a take, and they would say, “Awesome.  You got it.  Let’s — “  And Kevin Feige would be like, “God, that was great.  Let’s move on.”  And you get on with the day.  The days that Mark’s son was there, he was like, “Awesome job, Tom. We got it.  Let’s move on.”  Kevin would say the same thing, and then Mark’s son would say, “Oh, my God!  Tom!  That was incredible!  That was the most awesome thing I have ever seen!”  And I’m like, “I am doing this for you.”  And, you know, there were days when Mark would come in with him just to watch, because he wanted to watch.  He’d be like, “I’m sorry.  We’re here again.  He just loves you.”  And then you realize that that’s the power that these films can have.

It’s such a beautiful thing.  It’s a really amazing privilege.”

Isn’t that just melt worthy? Well, whatever, I think it is. I also stumbled across some Game of Thrones junk.

I’m sorry. You can smash my face into the bathroom mirror later, if you like. But first, some art that I admire.

I just love Deviantart artists. That last one, oh how I love her stuff…more or less the Labyrinth stuff. It’s a fetish, I’ll admit it. Here’s the fanfic (which is surprisingly hilarious and totally M rated) that accompanies the picture. It’s very well written.

Link: The T-Shirt Incident

You might wanna check out the pictures first, just so you know where the plot is coming from.

And I would just like to mention, that this whole Wonder Woman/Batman thing in the animated Justice League series…it’s totally legit. I mean, can we just take a moment and observe that sly expression on her face? She just kissed him, after he went frantic over trying to rescue her from a pile of rubble. Does that not scream potential relationship?

Shut up. I know I’m lame. Anyway, ignore the large expanse of white space up there. I was too lazy to edit the screen capture of my desktop. I also don’t understand the weird text after my Tom rant. Let’s just pretend I’m perfect.

Ha! I learned how to fix it! Ten points to…you know, I don’t care to admit what House I’ve been sorted into on Pottermore.

It’s What It Is: Movie Review on Devil

I remember wanting to see this movie so badly when it first came out…I think it had something to do with the goth phase I went through. Anyway, I finally got to see it (I know, I know, two years late), and while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t really all that great either. Here’s a small synopsis:

Five strangers trapped in an elevator realize that one of them is the Devil in this thriller from director John E. Dowdle (Quarantine) and screenwriter Brian Nelson (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night). The first installment of “The Night Chronicles,” a film series in which up-and-coming filmmakers bring to life stories conceived by M. Night Shyamalan, Devil opens to find five Philadelphia office workers filing into the elevator of an inner-city office building. But a typical day at the office takes a sudden detour into terror when the elevator becomes stuck between floors, and the passengers discover that the Devil does exist, and he’s standing right before them. As emergency workers work frantically to free them, secrets are revealed and the passengers realize their only hope for survival is to confront their darkest sins in front of the others.
(Jason Buchanan, Rovi)

Thank you, Rotten Tomatoes. I didn’t really care for the characters, they were pretty boring and there were a lot of relationships left sorta unresolved. I did, however, enjoy the intro and ending narration. I also thought the confrontation scene with the devil was cool-the way they portrayed him was something along the lines of “Yeah, I’m a bad-ass immortal being. Deal with it”.

Oh, and on a Katie-note, I loathed the soundtrack. I think that was the most unoriginal part of the movie, in my opinion anyway. I’d probably only give the movie a 5/10.

On another note, has anyone noticed this?

If so…

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME? I mean, NPH as Nightwing? Jensen Ackles (that’s right, one of the J^2) as Red Hood? Two amazing actors as two of the Robins? I don’t think this movie could be any more awesome. The movie, by the way, is Batman: Under the Red Hood.

Slainte, viewers~
