Most of us know that Marvel has their movies lined up for the next 50 years. Ok, that may be an exaggeration, but sometimes it feels like it. With the success of their Marvel Universe on the big screen the studio has been ruling San Diego Comic Con this year. Most of the cast was on hand Day 3 for the panel, including newcomer characters Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Ultron, and Thanos. But before these actors will be burned into our brains as these super heroes and villains, I thought we’d take a walk down memory lane and remember what they’ve done B.M. (before Marvel).
I’m going to keep this super brief because by this time if you haven’t heard and/or seen the Oscar selfie… well… you really have no excuse. Even Meryl Streep, who has never tweeted before, knew what was up. So, I’ll just leave you with my favourite gif of the night.
I feel Bradley Cooper’s pain. Pretty much how I feel every time I’m explaining technology to older relatives.
Bradley Cooper: You need to turn it sideways… Here gimme, I’ll do it… FFS just gimme the phone. There we go!
Overall, I’d give the show 8/10.
Ellen was funny and I thought she carried the show well. No real shockers in terms of who got what awards. I wasn’t surprised that American Hustle got zip. The movie was all hype, not enough substance. Acceptance speeches were nice. I kinda liked Cate Blanchet’s jab at Hollywood about the lack of leading female roles in this modern day. I could’ve done without the blatant product placement… *ahem* I’m looking at you Samsung. I liked the inclusion of actually performing the nominated songs. I seem to remember they hadn’t been doing that. But then I guess when both U2 and Pharrell are nominated how could you not have them do a performance? Of course the show ran long… over 3 hours! As much as I like watching Chris Evans introduce a montage of action heroes and see all my favourite movies, it was a waste of time. But I enjoyed Pink’s tribute to The Wizard of Oz. She killed it. And the pizza moment was funny at the time, but in hindsight I feel strange thinking that celebrities eating pizza was laugh-worthy…. because it’s really not… o.o Anyways, it was better than last year.
Now that the Globes are over and we look towards the Oscars I thought I’d share a movie mashup I came across a few weeks ago. The music is from one of my favourite bands, Metric (even if it is from a Twilight soundtrack :P) and is an awesome summary of good and bad films that were released in 2010. ^^
It’s Golden Globes day! Fun fact: Keep saying ‘golden’ and ‘globes’ for a few minutes and it loses all meaning. It even starts to sound rather ridiculous. 😛 I’m excited to see what’s going to go down tonight. I suppose that was the purpose for those network execs (or whoever it was) for bringing Ricky Gervais back to host. He turned the whole event into a reality show. Testing waters and pushing buttons. The media on their toes to capture the reactions. Sure it was kinda mean (like that shot at Mel Gibson lol), but for the rest of us down right entertaining. XD I was with Ricky and thought there was no way they’d ask him back, yet here he is! lol I love it. Here’s some highlights from last year in case you missed it. I mean, I don’t want to hype it up too much, but you probably don’t want to miss it this year either. You never know what will happen. 😛
I guess I should mention something about the nominees… Hm, I honestly don’t care that much who wins. I guess I’ll humour myself (let’s face it, I’m the only one reading this lol) and go through some of the categories.
