Nothing will stand in our way. I will finish, what you started
She gives great advice
She can think of many ways to get out of something she doesn’t want to do – like synchronised swimming
She always has a Plan B to get out of said thing she doesn’t wanna do
She’s comfortable with who she is
She teaches valuable lessons
She is the MASTER of sarcasm
And she believes it to be the right way to be
She believes in telling the truth
The whole truth
And nothing but the truth
She always gives 100% to anything she’s involved in
She will not be patronised by anyone
She’ll teach you about the right and wrong way to raise your voice
And she says what everyone is thinking
She has encourages her family
But underneath all the crazy she has feelings
Even if she hates them
and she cares about her family, in her own way
So watch Bob’s Burgers, you can learn a lot from Louise!
My best and worst enemy is myself when watching horror, I always try to be the one to predict what’s going to happen and I’m usually right and rightly dissapointed. (This might be that my Film Degree has left me with the voice in my head over analysing every frame, use of colour, dialogue that could hint at anything…yawn I know but it’s both a gift and curse)
Horror, in the movies at least, for me has been lacking that old school really scare you and freak you out kinda vibe. I get myself worked up and I’m like all ready to love the film and then when the ‘horror’ is revealed it almost becomes a comedy *cough* Insidious *cough*. (I’m sorry but if you didn’t find that film hilarious, there’s something wrong with you).
Anyway, so when I saw the trailer for The Visit I was like…ok this looks like it could creep me out. They aren’t relying on the very over used ‘ghost girl’ thing or any kind of ‘haunted house’ thing LET’S WATCH THIS.
For me The Visit, from the get go, was pretty good. I liked the muted colours, the framing, the script was well written which became apparent at the end, the little clues (or what I thought were clues) and it was building some sort of weird tensions that, until the end, I though twas a bit mediocre and predictable… BOY WAS I WRONG.
It genuinely had my face all gasping and, especially the end twenty minutes, where truly unpredictable and quite frankly disturbing and disgusting.
I’m not saying it’s the best Horror film ever, but I couldn’t see what was going to happen and then even when it did it got so fucked up that I was left a bit speechless. This film plays on you predicting it, it leads you in all kinds of directions that you don’t even come close to the truth…at least not until it’s too late. Plus it’s creepy as hell anyway.
AND THEY DIDN’T EVEN USE ANY OF THE BEST SCENES IN THE TRAILERS WHICH WAS AAAMMMAAAZZINNG
Go watch, go watch it now…and don’t get in the oven.
Ok, so like a lot of people I’m a big fan of Sherlock Holmes! What’s not to love? He’s unpredictable, unorthodox and who doesn’t fall in love with his stand-offish demeanor? Swooooon. What we get with Sherlock is about as close to a realistic superhero as we’re going to get. Well in a universe without mutant powers, extreme technology and aliens (before you comic geeks start throwing jibes my way). His mind works in ways that the average person’s doesn’t and he doesn’t have any of the poxy feelings dragging him down either (well, not really anyway). So how exciting is the next few years going to be for us Sherlock fans? Pretty damn exciting! and here is why…
We’ve had 2 amazing depictions of Sherlock in recent years, with Robert Downey Jr sporting the pipe and hat in Sherlock Holmes (2009) and again in 2011 with the it’s not that bad follow up Game of Shadows
(Side note: Is Jude Law’s pout so big it should get it’s own fan fiction?)
Not only does Downey Jr give us a sassy, sexy Sherlock but one that is a bit more connected to his emotions. Only a bit though. And now he’s rumored to be in line for yet ANOTHER Sherlock film. With no release date announced this is still pretty much internet hype but hype we will.
Then, of course, we’ve got the answer all TV lovers and Cumberbatch enthusiasts prayers with the BBC’s 3 seasons of Sherlock (watch it on Netflix, you won’t be sorry!)
And both Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have apparently finished up shooting on the 4th season airing on Christmas Day 2015! Cumberbatch’s Sherlock is even more egotistical and sassy and set in modern-day London it feels as though this character is actually locked up in Baker Street at the moment. A girl can dream.
With these two equally satisfying Sherlocks you’d think we wouldn’t need another one right? Well, who knew that Ian McKellen would throw into question everything I’ve known about Sherlock up until now!
That’s right people, it’s really happening. Ian McKellen is playing Sherlock Holmes and oh my god doesn’t it look great?! I didn’t even know until the teaser for Mr.Holmes was released earlier today (watch it here) that I even needed another portrayal of the detective but my gosh…I’m ready to have my mind blown once again! Not only is it one of my favorite actors playing one of my favorite characters (commence girly screaming) BUT it’s a look into how Sherlock would cope with losing his ‘super power’, his mind (commence even louder girly screaming).
For Sherlock fans everywhere, the next couple of years might just be enough to make our lives! Excitement level is reaching dangerous levels!
