It’s been a while, but I managed to drag myself to the cinema (not to see Prometheus, unfortunately, because I’ve promised the Certain Someone that I’d wait). I had a rather dark yet disney-esque experience with Snow White and the Huntsman.
If you’re familiar with Tumblr, The Avengers and a certain God of Mischief, you might have noticed the insane amount of fangirls flocking to “Loki’s Army”. Tom Hiddleston has gotten quite the following, and I believe there are very good reasons for that. So, to really get to the bottom of this, I decided to view everything he’s ever been in, as I am wont to do whenever I “discover” a new actor. Luckily for me, I had already seen most of it, except a certain movie that is not at all about genetically modified sharks.
Movie: Shame (2011)
When Tiger Woods has it, it’s a joke, but sex addiction is no laughing matter in Shame, a Steve McQueen movie that needs Michael Fassbender’s tortured face to work. The man is one of the most interesting actors working right now. That’s why it’s such a shame the camera man always seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong moment.
This week I put on my francophile hat to watch Polisse, a cop movie about ordinary cops who have to deal with pedophiles on a regular basis. We get to know these people rather well after a few poor editing choices, but the movie just doesn’t leave enough of an impression. I gave it a 4 on viewing, but it hasn’t aged well in my mind, so it’s a dice roll 3 for Polisse.
