  1. Oh man, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks like the hottest of messes so far, but I am still going to see it, if for no other reason than James McAvoy’s Professor X looking like this:

    The 70s were not kind to anyone, were they?

    • Seriously, if they don’t include Dazzler in this I am going to scream forever.

    • I have a question about James McAvoy. Has he ever been in a good movie? I have seen him in a bunch of movies and they’ve all been TERRIBLE. I still like him because duh, he’s cute and charming and has a good accent, but I wish I could watch him a movie that doesn’t make me want to die (looking at you, Becoming Jane).

      • YEAH. I have been wondering this for a long time. People lose their shit over James McAvoy and I’m always like why? What good roles has he done?

      • He has been in some crap, I grant you. But:

        I really like Wanted. It may not be good, but I like it overall. It’s fun, and pre-badass anxiety Wesley is the character I identify with most, ever. I also liked Last King of Scotland, even if it was problematic in parts and a difficult watch. I also liked X-Men: First Class even though it makes NO SENSE. The Last Station has Helen Mirren and Christohper Plummer so even if it sucks, I love it because those two are THE BEST EVER. Some people really liked Trance. I was not one of them, but I don’t think it was terrible.

        Also, Arthur Christmas was ADORABLE. AND the neverwhere radio play is great.

        • So I missed my window to listen to Neverwhere when they had it streaming. Anyone know of any place else to get it?

          • Listen, friend. I wish not to steer you ILL. I shall guide you in this quest, as the EAGLE guides the hearts and minds of all who see it. In wandering DOWN this path, we must be careful to avoid misstep. LOAD.

        • I sort of enjoyed watching Trance until it got super ridiculous midway through, but it was one of those movies that I liked less and less the more I thought about it after. The fact that there were certain characters you were supposed to root for at the end was absurd because they were all awful.

      • Last King of Scotland was alright

      • I liked Penelope and you know what? I’m not

  2. i feel like people don’t talk enough about how bill hader’s alan alda impression is the best thing.

  3. This 4th season of AD has been so blown up (mainly by third parties) that it’s diminishing any returns prematurely. A portion of the charm when the initial series ran was that it was for us – the fans who were there all along. That’s why the in-jokes resonated during that time. That was the charm. It was for us, and for that, it was bound for cancellation. This hype from a goshdarn slew of blogs and major media outlets, to my eye, almost defeats the purpose.

    It sounds like they have a perfect counter-strategy to this, with the non-linear structure and the focus being less on story and more on character. During the initial run, I almost foolishly forced AD on some friends and the response was nearly unanimous: “I have no idea what’s going on.” I think anticipating that, along with the time between the finale and now, led them to take this choice.

    I’ve read as little as my curiosity allows me about this, so forgive me if I’m getting something wrong.

  4. So, I don’t know what happened to me, but I just figured out that Bill Hader is leaving SNL. I’m super bummed. I didn’t watch all of SNL but I saw the Stefon skit and I was like “that’s weird. Maybe he isn’t doing Stefon anymore” and then I see the super cut and I was like What?!?!?!? Anyway, I’m rambling, but I don’t know how to handle this info.
