…Or as I like to call it, one hot sepia-toned mess. This movie is what happens when a director is so enthralled with his rad CGI concept he kicks plot, dialogue, characterization, and common sense to the curb. Oh, and thanks for making Henry Cavill look a decade older than he actually is, when he’s supposed to be playing a decade younger. What’s the point in watching this dreck if I can’t even enjoy the hot man lead actor?
One good thing about the movie: the last scene was kind of cool. Other than that, don’t waste your time. Sorry Henry–better luck with Superman.
Joshua Jackson: I know how ‘Fringe’ ends by Rick Porter
“Fringe” will have its biggest Comic-Con stage ever on Sunday (July 15) when the cast and producers greet fans in the San Diego Convention Center’s massive Hall H. And it’s likely just about all those fans will want to know about the show’s ending.
They can ask series star Joshua Jackson — because he says he knows where “Fringe’s” final season is headed.
“My show being what it is, I can’t tell you, but we have a really distinct … and very cool wrapping up of the entire series,” Jackson tells The Hollywood Reporter in a pre-Comic-Con roundtable with several other actors.
That’s something of a surprise, as in the past the “Fringe” powers that be tended to keep story details secret, even from the cast. Jackson says showrunner J.H. Wyman “has been kind of shockingly forthcoming, because our show is usually pretty impenetrable. But this is the last year, and I guess it’s a new leaf. He was like, ‘I want everybody engaged. I want everybody to know exactly what they’re doing.'”
Well, well, well, did you know that Joshua Jackson runs this show? That what he wants (for everybody to be “engaged…to know exactly what they’re doing”) is the key to the entire series? We’ll bet J.J. Abrams didn’t know it either.
God, we wish we knew how to write fluff.
Or even read it.
EDITED TO ADD: Anna Torv knows how it ends too, which leads us to believe that all the stars do. Probably because the writing-producing staff wants them to be “engaged.” Read Anna Torv’s interview
…The writer of this article, for one. ‘Cuz, you know, if DOWNTON ABBEY wins one or two or a dozen, that’s one or two or a dozen fewer for good ole Ammurican shows:
Emmys 2012: How ‘Downton Abbey’ might affect the drama races
by Rick Porter
When the Emmy nominations are announced on July 19, you’ll probably see quite a few repeat nominees. It’s what the Emmys does, to a large extent, and as discussed previously, it’s unlikely that any new shows not named “Homeland” will get a bucketful of nominations.
There is one returning show, however, that has the potential to shake up several races: “Downton Abbey.” PBS’ British import is moving from the movie/miniseries field to the drama series categories this year, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the show come close to matching the 11 nominations it received in 2011.
If “Downton” scores a big nomination haul, though, that means other shows and performers might get left out in the cold.
Do you suppose this guy knows he’s a chickenshit moron? Or does he just think he’s chickenshit? Cuz morons never seem to catch on that the point of this article is absurd because of course the caliber of the competition dictates who or what wins. That’s the %$#@! point.
