Tom Hardy, Locke

Movie Review: Locke (2014)

32LOCKEMAIN1504A

Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) gets into his car after a day at work and begins driving north toward London.  It’s about an hour and a quarter drive.  During that drive, which is the entirety of the movie, Locke will have a series of phone conversations that will change his entire life. Continue reading

First Photo From the Set of Ant-Man

Ant-Man, Paul Rudd
Director Peyton Reed started filming Ant-Man yesterday and we already have our first picture from the set.  There’s nothing too dramatic as Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is looking beat-up and ratty, probably pre-ant.

The original Ant-Man, Hank Pym, will be played by Michael Douglas and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne (why did they change it from Janet?), will be played by Evangeline Lilly.  Also returning to the MCU will be Mad Men’s John Slattery who will be playing Howard Stark (I’m supposing in a flashback to Pym’s days).  Slattery last played Tony’s dad in Iron Man 2.  The official synopsis is below.  This one has a lot of skepticism to overcome.  Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

R.I.P. Don Pardo (1918 – 2014); SNL Will Never Sound the Same

300px-SNL1980s

It’s unsettling how true it is that deaths come in threes.  Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall and now legendary TV voice Don Pardo have all left us in a week.  Pardo was the voice of Saturday Night Live for every season but one, continuing with the show long after he’d retired from NBC.  I can’t hear anyone else introducing the guest host.  It doesn’t seem right.  Full obituary from The Wrap below.

Robin Williams

Robin Williams Tribute Art by Jeff Victor

Robin Williams

Jeff Victor has done this wonderful piece on the late Robin Williams and prints can be bought at his website (link below) with part of the proceeds going to St. Jude’s.

“My tribute to the illustrious career of Robin Williams. Obviously, there are many, many more movies that could be included in this piece, but I tried to represent as many highlights as I could. This particular Evolution was quite emotional to draw. Williams’ work was so meaningful to me, and a big part of my childhood. His death is a loss for us all. I’m not very eloquent at eulogizing, so hopefully my art will speak for itself and remind you of the joy you felt watching his films.

“I am selling this piece as a print here, and for every copy I sell, I am donating $5.00 to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a charity Williams was very passionate about.”
