Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘This Is The End’ trailer
The apocalypse! Seth Rogen! Emma Watson with an axe! Hee!

Best Line:
"Hermione just stole all our s##t."

‘The Apparition’ (2012) clip:
A girl is scared in the laundry room and so nails the door shut only to find out she’s nailed herself in with something creepy. This film looks good.

‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ Quotes:

“You actually said that? Out loud?”

‘Promise of Blood’ Quotes:
“Words like “omen” and “bad tidings” were being spoken by men far too educated to take such things seriously.”

“Your unwavering support brings tears to my eyes.”

“Eat your good faith, worm!”

Bear Grylls ate an enormous live grub. Then he squeezed the guts out of a hairy caterpillar, char grilled it over a coke can and ate it. Delightful.

Coming in the autumn: reviews of ‘Dracula’, ‘Arrow’ season 2 and ‘Elementary’ season 2.

Honeycomb chocolate = yum.

Elementary 1x24 + Revenge 2x22 Reviewed

Holmes was played by ‘Irene Adler’ who is a bit young to be a criminal mastermind. ‘Irene’ was a creation to study Holmes and he seems to have got over his great love being a lie pretty quickly.

Holmes is a jackass. Watson and ‘Irene’ aka Moriarty have a stare down. Watson is not impressed by her at all. At least this Moriarty isn’t screaming and overacting like Andrew Scott did in ‘Sherlock’. Moriarty has a plan involving Macedonia, Greece, an assassination and a currency bid.

Moriarty’s reach is very long, Holmes stomps around screaming, people die and Moriarty gloats but is defeated via her love for Holmes. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of her. This was good. After their victory Watson and Holmes stare at bees.

Best Lines:
“I’m saying I’m better.”

“Let me win.”

“You’re not afraid of me.”

“Spirit of the Dam-Busters and all that.”

“You just point and shoot. Repeatedly.”

Truth Part 2
Conrad plays the hero. Jack snots. Daniel is a jackass as he throws Aiden under a bus for the bombing. Daniel is like scabies. Victoria won’t stop being awful. Declan’s dying yet still looks good. Pa Porter never taught his sons about birth control. Conrad rants. Aiden is arrested. Conrad makes a big reveal about the Initiative. Conrad is gross.

Declan dies of a ruptured artery, Jack blames Conrad overlooking the part he himself played in getting the moron killed. Aiden is freed and Nolan is arrested. It is Nolan and not Aiden who is branded the disciple of David Clarke. Didn't see that coming.

I think I will watch season 3 after all. Charlotte looks up a website called Teenage Mommy, Aiden and Daniel have a confrontation and Daniel may have killed Aiden. Nolan has unintentionally dug himself a hole and then a video of Padma surfaces to dig said hole even deeper.

Conrad is elected, Patrick shows up and Emily reveals herself to Jack. This was good but it is ridiculous that Emily has Jack, Aiden, Daniel and Nolan dancing at her whims.

Best Lines:
“We are the first responders.”

“There is no Initiative my dear.”

“The hellcat I married raises her déclassé head.”

“Your little paranoid delusion.”

“That of your three children, the two that you decided to acknowledge want nothing to do with you.”

“I’m Amanda Clarke.”

Book Review: The Caretaker of Lorne Field

The Caretaker of Lorne Field by Dave Zeltserman
Jack Durkin is the latest in his line to have weeded Lorne Field. It is a sacred trust long borne by his family to destroy the monsters that grow there. But his shrew wife and sneering elder son refuse to believe and mock him. Plus the new generation of townsfolk do not want to believe and mock him.

The proud old before his time Jack is worn down by the ungrateful bastards who keep trying to convince him he is psychotic whilst he knows if he stops weeding for just one day the world is doomed. This was good, a nice chilling tale.

Best Lines:
“Doesn’t surprise me. They always seemed a bit inbred over there.”

“They don’t grow there. That’s just where they choose to come out of the ground.”
