So Wynand viciousnarcissus and I went on a mini movie blitz because Redbox is the devil, and I’ve only got five things to say.

  1. I still can’t get over B.C.’s non-Euclidean Pleistocene-Era face, but he makes a good neuroatypical WWII-era mathemetician inventor, and since he’s an actor and not a bloody supermodel, I respect that (The Imitation Game)
  2. I mean, if I gotta get murdered by you, at least look sexy while you’re doing it. There’s nothing worse than getting passively murdered except, I guess, getting murdered in the first place (No Good Deed)
  3. It has really gotten to the point where I develop automatic affection for people with impeccable routines and living spaces. You’re beautiful. Let Me live with you and iron your shirts and dust your baseboards. Also, Denzel makes a stellar Roland Deschain I’m so in love (The Equalizer)
  4. and this is why I don’t need to fuck with temporal anything, you keep your goddamn voodoo-TARDIS violin case to yourself bro, I got enough problems (Predestination)
  5. this man got no goddamn right to be that adorable and no I’m not fucking crying, there’s just a singularity in My eye, also HELLO, T R I A D (The Theory of Everything)
