SQUEEZED INTO THE DAY

Before I end the day with a bit of Joel, I managed to squeeze in a bit of Henry!

Henry - 1

Henry - 2

There’s always room for Henry!

So….
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The Chronicles of Riddick
Cold Light of Day

Now I just need to choose which Joel film I’m in the mood for to end the day.
That could take the rest of the evening!!
I think I will flip a coin between ‘Easy Money’ and ‘In Your Veins’

Night Y’all

TYPICAL!!

Typical!!

I get myself dressed in scruffs and ready to do some SERIOUS gardening and then it goes and rains!!

Oh well, looks like a quick tidy up and then the afternoon on the sofa with Joel Kinnaman …… I mean me curled up on the sofa with some Joel movies!!
I couldn’t be that lucky!

What to choose?
What am I in the mood for?

Lead down the wrong path Joel in ‘Easy Money 1, 2 and 3’?

I made the wrong decision Joel in ‘Lola Versus’?

I will watch this movie just for the incredible but vicious 3 minute fight scene with Ryan Reynolds in ‘Safe House’?

or how about I’m a backstabber and a coward and deserve everything I get Joel in ‘The Darkest Hour’.

or how about my favourite one so far, naive and head over heels in love Joel in ‘In Your Veins’

Decisions, decisions.
I just wish Netflix would hurry up and air the last series of The Killing!!!

Or I could go crazy and give Joel a break and pick one of my other 1030 movies!!
It might just take the rest of the afternoon to make a decision.

Right where’s the chocolate and the beer?

 

 

HE’S A DANGEROUS GUY….

I am unashamedly going to gush now.
I think you can probably guess about who.

I now have a Bluray release date for Robocop.
9th June.
83 days and counting.

83 days!!! That’s so far away.
I am just going to have to make do with Youtube for while.
Clips like this…..

Robocop…. he’s a dangerous guy, you don’t wanna mess with him.
Skinhead Joel with the wingnut ears is so cute!!!

This obsession started on February 7th.
I was blown away with the reboot of Robocop.
They haven’t re-made the original movie, they have re-told it.
They have kept the important elements of what makes Robocop.
Only this time around they have gone into the ethics of doing it.
What makes us human.
Alex Murphy struggles to keep his humanity and ultimately, his family.

I came away from that film thinking, this new guy, Joel Kinnaman, is a bit interesting.
That’s how it starts.
A bit of IMDB info and filmography and I find myself watching the TV series that got him noticed in the US.

Steven Holder
The Killing.
Steven Holder makes me laugh….

Steven Holder is a little boy lost but he’s good at his job.
That TV series leads to his movie roles.

Except I have a minor problem.
Joel Kinnaman is beautifully bilingual.
Swedish Mother and American Father.
He grew up in Sweden and that is where he started his acting career.

Two of his best roles so far have been in Swedish films.
Easy Money (Snabba Cash) is the film that got him noticed in Hollywood.
A film that thankfully, is available on DVD with good English subtitles.

Easy_Money_06

It’s about a young man living a double life and getting caught up in events he can’t control and is totally unprepared for.

In Your Veins ( I Skuggan Av Varmen) is a very hard hitting film about a young woman, struggling to keep her life together as a heroin user.
She meets and falls in love with Eric (Joel) a police officer.
Eric is very naive and has a very shielded view of life and for a while she manages to keep her secret from him.
However, things ultimately get revealed but by that time, it’s too late. They have well and truly bonded.
Eric ultimately ends up finding things out that explain why she does what she does.

I think this film has been my favourite so far!
Unfortunately, the subtitles weren’t brilliant.
They were good enough to allow me to follow the film however.
I just really want to get hold of a DVD copy with properly translated Subs like Snabba Cash!!
Unfortunately that will probably never happen!!

So, since February 7th I have seen….
The entire series of The Killing so far, with the final 6 episodes due on Netflix later this year.
I’ve seen Robocop 4 times with the Bluray out in June.
I own Lola Versus, The Darkest Hour and Easy Money (Snabba Cash)
I have managed to watch, In Your Veins (I Skuggan Av Varmen), Easy Money 2 (Snabba Cash 2) and Johan Falk: Spelets Regler (Johan Falk: Rules of the Game)
And I have seen an episode of Arn The Knight Templar on American Netflix.

I have three films in post production to look out for over the next year and ‘hopefully’ after the success of Robocop, if the Bluray does as well, they may announce a Robocop 2!!
I can but hope.

There are no end of videos available on Youtube with Joel being interviewed and he is just adorable.
He is obviously very new to all the attention.
He has puppy dog eyes and an adorably sheepish smile.

Joel 04

I am well and truly smitten. Can you tell?
And now that I have got that out of my system, I can concentrate on a few chores before I relax and prepare myself for work again tomorrow.
