  1. Wait, the Ben Barnes version isn't considered the last word on the matter? The gender-swap is interesting, but I'm more interested in whether the other roles will also be gender-swapped (I mean, I assume they will be, but definite word would be nice).
  2. I started laughing hardly a minute into part 13 and didn't stop until the last 20 minutes. Then started again in the last five.
  3. Initial responses are coming in on Twitter and they sound grim.
  4. Someone somewhere pointed out that Four Quartets shows up in the background of the Audrey scene. And now we know that episode 17 is titled "The Past Dictates the Future." Which makes me think about the opening of "Burnt Norton," of course: And then, a little later: All of which is suggestive, at least.
  5. Vulture has the trailer, which includes a bit of Sufjan Stevens' "Mystery of Love." EDIT: Embedding
  6. Audrey's back, and some viewers aren't happy about it. Case in point. I dunno, perhaps it's because Audrey's return was promised from the start but put off so much that it could never bear the weight of expectations, but there seems to be a bit of discontent floating around. I don't buy it. For one thing, I think the character is a thoroughly natural development of what we saw previously. For another, her husband is almost literally the freaking worst, so she seemed less shrewish here than reasonably incensed. Anyway. The show is definitely settled into a more traditionally Twin Peaks rhythm at this point, including a wonderful scene featuring Sarah Palmer and another featuring Ben Horne and Frank Truman. And the Audrey scene. Oh, and a lovely scene with Carl Rodd, who's another one of these characters that has become unexpectedly central in certain ways. The "don't sell your blood" scene should probably be filed with the other examples of good-goodness as opposed to ironic or subverted goodness in the Lynch canon. I halfway expected Dougie to go away in this episode, since the title was "Let's Rock," but now I'm back to thinking we're going to have him with us until episode 16 or 17. Which, honestly, I'm pretty happy with.
  7. Yeah, I'm getting a little weary of the triple-Chris shtick. It's cool to see someone less typical in this kind of role.
  8. Between this and the Salinger biopic, Hoult seems to be developing a very particular niche.
  9. Well, I mean at least giving Spock secret siblings is totally consistent with the way the series has always worked.
  10. Ok.... Not sure how I feel about the shoot-first thematics implied here, but whatever.
  11. I would watch a movie centered on Bubble.
  12. This is a very, very mixed bag. Gorgeous, and definitely a movie to be seen in 3D. But the plot, once it starts resolving, is inelegantly handled and the leads are both terribly lovely but almost entirely without personality. Not a movie I can imagine playing well on home viewing.
  13. I'm visiting friends this weekend and decided to pitch a visit to the movies. The movie I pitched was definitely Valerian.
