Tom Hiddleston (649)

1 Name: Anon : 2017-03-01 15:14 ID:JdqnTY+R

Thread to talk about the actor...oh fuck it. You know what to do

640 Name: NewAnon : 2017-06-20 23:06 ID:a5CbPO7S

>>637 Which blinds are you referring to? I've seen the ones dealing with his love life, all those affairs with Mia and cheating on Olsen then cheating on Taylor with Olsen, etc etc. Are these blinds talking about him professionally/ how he is as a person? What do they say?

641 Name: Heynon : 2017-06-21 01:25 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>640 I'll try to pull together some links tomorrow. Various trash about how he comes off in person.

642 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-06-21 23:31 ID:Efyef8Wk

>>641 I'm interested too Heynon, what's out there that's plausible beyond the usual 'X yelled at an assistant on set' or 'X is secretly gay' blind items.

643 Name: Heynon : 2017-06-22 02:41 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>640, >>642 Sorry for the delay; work ate my brain today. And plausibility will be a challenge!

644 Name: Heynon : 2017-06-22 02:46 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>639 Based on Google results, a lot of people also have asked if film stars have to audition or not. The only non-crowd-sourced answer I found was this - that it's more likely to be a meeting with the director:

It would be fascinating to know why some actors were chosen over him. What is it about Fassy that made him the first choice for Adam? Or Cumberbatch for CP - especially since Del Toro rewrote the part for Tom when he took it over?

645 Name: Sosorry : 2017-06-22 03:09 ID:36tT7wtT

>>644 I have no evidence to support this, but I think that it's just about an actor's current visibility in the industry, and who you know in the industry. Cumberbatch is Sherlock across the globe on tv, plus he was coming off of the Oscar winning 12 years a Slave and his casting/performance in The Imitation Game. Fassy was golden globe nominated for Shame, he had a wicked turn in the period piece A Dangerous Method playing Carl Jung, and he had at least been cast as Magneto. Charlie Hunam is not a period actor at all IMO, and he was badly miscast in CP, but he knew del Toro from filming Pacific Rim and he is kind of visible on tv from years starring on Sons of Anarchy. I think that the producers just go down a list of who they perceive as being visible to audiences and who therefore might be bankable, theoretically. Teen boys identify Tom the second they see him onscreen b/c of Loki, but they're not going to follow their favorite villain into other genres of film, sadly. Even die hard TH fans don't go out to the theatre to all of his films. I think that this is all BS, b/c only Leo DiCaprio, and D Washington can open a movie guaranteed. Everyone else is hit and miss, even J Lawrence. TH is a fave of mine, but some think that Fassy had more natural approach as an actor onscreen, and that Tom is more calculated, analytical, and theatrical, and therefore better suited to stage work, at present.

646 Name: Sosorry : 2017-06-23 18:13 ID:tW8pBDat

Tom still seems to be in London recording audio for Early Man. He mentioned in a video interview following the story that he was taking a break from acting, that all of the rest of 2017 was already booked in his calendar. Maybe he just meant Early Man recording and IW and Thor 3 re shoots?
>>636 Someone mentioned that the Silent Night film could be the neo noir thriller that Tom was heard discussing in the park with his manager.

647 Name: Heynon : 2017-06-24 02:31 ID:vcHuIQwy

>>646 The theories on the extremely clever one's Tumblr are that he's probably been shooting IW as well as finishing up EM. Those, coupled with the D23 and/or SDCC cons, and T:R publicity, could theoretically fill up most of his calendar. Especially if Loki is also in Avengers 4, which starts shooting later this summer. But for all we really know, he could be hiding out and working on the Next Great British Screenplay.

648 Name: Whatsinaname : 2017-06-24 04:50 ID:Efyef8Wk

>>647 Don't forget about the UNICEF documentary. The rumors of him and Louise keep popping up, though without evidence.

649 Name: huh : 2017-06-24 05:44 ID:+oJ1aeiW

>>648 I read somewhere the doc got taken down from the production company's website. Anybody know about this?

The Louise rumors, I've only seen on Town Bike and they're all based on Tom bringing her and some other Unicef buddies to an awards show months ago. Like you said, without evidence, but that's Town Bike for ya. eye roll

Star Wars VII (15)

1 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-12-18 18:55 ID:oeQA1TPC

Star Wars thread.
talk about the new movie and stuff.

6 Name: Couch Potato : 2015-12-31 17:09 ID:Lmovnwdz

Everything supposed to be impressive and epic felt stupid and overblown in the way basically everything in modern movies supposed to be impressive and epic feels stupid and overblown. The concept of the planet superweapon drawing from the star, the way all the action scenes were shot, the lightsaber fight choreography, etc.
But I guess thats more an issue with modern movies in general than this particular one.

7 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-08 17:11 ID:JCjeM1FU

Does Captain Phasma take off her mask/helmet in the film? From what I heard she's just some old lady.

8 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-12 18:06 ID:A0h9VuZR

The Rebels carved out a slice of the galaxy and became the Republic. The remains of the Empire (or only part, who knows) rebranded as the First Order and a new rebellion starts up because the Republic doesn't want to get involved in killing another dictator.

Also I think the entire purpose of the stormtrooper yelling traitor was to show that Finn isn't an amateur at fighting with melee weapons. Rey's got no excuse though beyond that damn good with the force.

Wasn't a great movie (holy shit, the second half is pretty dumb), but it felt refreshing to see a new star wars that felt like an original trilogy film rather than the prequels.

Google Gwendoline Christie and see, she's not old but she's not in her twenties anymore.

9 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-13 02:50 ID:iIKOVBEe


But does she take off her helmet in the film or not? I've already seen pix of the actress and from what I remember her hair was white or gray.

12 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-01-30 01:47 ID:Heaven

So I was thinking about it a bit, and I wonder now: would we think so highly of this movie if the sequels had been good? What if the bar had been set higher? Of course it wasn't.

I'd like to hear from someone who hadn't bothered with the sequels at all or someone who saw this one first. We're going to have to find someone who has been a in a coma, or prison, or marooned for a long time I think.

13 Name: Darth Kenobi : 2016-03-16 02:27 ID:GQbdsMN7

Do you mean episodes 1 through 3? Technicly they would be considered prequels rather than sequels. But yeah, episode 2 blew chunks.

14 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-05-19 16:01 ID:hK2+K30M

The Republic in TFA is the NEW Republic, formed by the rebel leadership after the defeat of the Empire. The impression I get is that it largely demilitarized, although military might was needed to defeat the Empire the New Republic leaders seemed to think military intervention was no longer justified after that point. Unfortunately, this attitude allowed the First Order (a specific group formed from the Imperial remnant) to grow and become powerful. By the time of TFA the galaxy seems to have these two competing groups, the New Republic and the First Order, both of which could be considered "legitimate" governments (though they may not see each other as such).

The Resistance is basically a private military organization funded by certain members of the Republic leadership, while maintaining plausible deniability. They're the ones who take direct military action against the First Order when the official military of the New Republic is unwilling to.

15 Name: Darth Palooka : 2017-05-08 15:04 ID:p9sWjovY

Captain Phasma does not remove her helmet in the film, a real disappointment. Han Solo should have pulled her helmet off in classic Scooby Doo fashion while saying "Let's see who this joker really is!"

Uwe Boll really is going to fight his critics (8)

1 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-29 03:32 ID:dfw2z02h

When I first heard of this I thought it would turn out to be a hoax or he'd give some excuse to chicken out, but I guess I was wrong.

>Four matches are currently scheduled for September 23 and one match planned earlier in Spain for a total of five opponents. Boll is ready to take on even more people willing to fight, and his challenge remains on the table.
>There are some critics who chickened out and didn't follow through with their challenges. The following 5 challengers have been picked by our selection committee to represent some of Uwe Boll's harshest critics. These particular challengers are prepared to box Dr. Boll on September 23rd, 2006, in Vancouver, where they will finally get the opportunity to try to inflict some pain on the man they claim has done it to them for years.
>Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka from Lee's Summit, Missouri, Webmaster /CEO for Something Awful, Jeff Sneider from Los Angeles, California, Journalist for Ain't It Cool News, Chris Alexander from Toronto, Ontario, Journalist / Radio Announcer for Rue Morgue, Nelson Chance Minter from Fredrick, Maryland, Website Critic.

Nerds get a chance to take out their ire on a person who ruined their childhood memories. Uwe Boll's a pretty beefy guy, so I can see some of them getting beat up thanks to sheer weight difference. I have to wonder if Lowtax is going to pull something completely ridiculous for the event.

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-29 10:55 ID:f8cKEHsi

> I have to wonder if Lowtax is going to pull something completely ridiculous for the event.

I so hope he is.

3 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-09 20:23 ID:ZvzfXfyE

if Lowtax is participating in this, he's definitely going to do something ridiculous

4 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-09 20:34 ID:i5+bGynw

So, is this going to be televised somewhere, or probably streadmed on the net?

Also, someone will be happy after this fight. Either the SA goons because lowtax beat boll up, or a ton of guys from other forums, because lowtax got beaten up.

5 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-10 00:11 ID:dfw2z02h

He won his first fight, against some no name critic. He's pretty fit. Lowtax will be part of the main event on the 23rd. The challengers are going to have to do some serious training if they want to do more than a joke appearance.

6 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-09-11 12:29 ID:HMlzLPrk

Lowtax should just appear naked, you know, come in wearing this bathrobe type thing boxers sometimes wear and nothing else. He could then throw it away with one swift motion and beat Boll up while he's to shocked to move.

America's Got Talent! WHAT A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT! (8)

1 Name: TokyoJapan22 : 2006-08-18 05:35 ID:M0907WXd

This show was BullShit! Why the Hell would a singer win $1,000,000 when there was a guy risking his life! This is FUCKED UP! Singers join American Idol and People with EXTRAORDINARY TALENT join this show AND WHEN THEY SPLIT INTO GROUPS, ONE GROUP WAS FILLED WITH COLORS WHILE THE OTHER GROUP WAS ALL WHITE! Doesn't that send a message to America that the media or NBC could be racist or just plain stupid. WHo here agrees with me!

A movie about 4 people who know how to cheat on each other.

Natalie Portman still sucks at acting.

INSTANT REVIEW: Limits Of Control (2009) (3/5)

Beautiful cinematography is the real highlight of a film that is slow with an insubstantial story.

468 Name: Couch Potato : 2016-09-22 17:40 ID:5h2qMXsR


Basically Brave New World with film tropes from Logan's Run to Pleasantville. Secret appearance by Taylor Swift!

INSTANT REVIEW: Citizen X (1995) (3/5)

It's a serial killer investigation with light gore set in the Soviet Union. I'm sold on that specific combination, but it's not actually very good. You can safely skip it despite the artificially high score.

It's nice to see some genuinely interesting sci-fi, but there's a whole subplot I just don't understand. Like, ethically. I enjoyed the ride anyway.

INSTANT REVIEW: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) (4/5)

Not a rehash, which is nice. Stunning visuals. It's really too bad George Lucas didn't sell out sooner. Destroy your copies of the prequels to increase the chances that they'll become apocryphal in the distant future.

apocryphal isn't the word I'm thinking of. A myth?

Guinea Pig (5)

1 Name: Kail : 2006-08-03 05:58 ID:cHL9qdah

I have an idea for a movie that I'm going to do when I'm older. Many of you know about the Guinea Pig films from the 80's, and if you don't then go look it up. Well there is an ongoing trend in America with American remakes of Japanese horror films, and I was thinking of taking this trend in a different direction with a not a movie remake of Guinea Pig, but a movie basing the horror of the Guinea Pig series around the hype it generated. I mean when I first read about these movies, they didn't sound so scary, but when I read things about Tsutomu Miyazaki killing little girls and Charlie Sheen reporting these to the FBI, I was scared by it. Thats what I want the audience to feel. I dunno, thats just an idea I have. If I can't work with this idea maybe I'll just make a documentary about them.

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-03 06:47 ID:FCUw1i1Q

re-makes mostly suck.
good luck tho

3 Name: Couch Potato : 2006-08-12 21:14 ID:zPhflCVs

I dunno how much cult/fame did the Guinea Pig movies create, since I only found out about them today, and they're pretty old now. Good luck with finding information about it, i think it might be pretty hard.

And besides, I wanna make movies too, good luck to ya ^_____^
