Tag: This Means War

AN ODD SORT OF DAY

I woke up this morning to the start of my second week of annual leave.
I had a good tidy up and then relaxed a bit before the local paper’s photographer came over.
They turned up early!! just as I was getting changed and didn’t have time for any makeup and I’m pretty sure my curls were wild.

Will our photo make it to the local rag on Thursday?
Who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Anyway, after that I had all good intentions of getting cracking with some ironing but after a trip to Mum’s to check on the fish I just couldn’t get going in that department and we ended up watching ‘This Means War’ with Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon.
That film just tickles me silly. I find myself chuckling all the way through and the three alternate endings just has me in hysterics!

Anyway, after that Ian was home and it was time for dinner.
While I did that I watched ‘Lola Versus’ with Greta Gerwig and Joel Kinnaman.
I don’t know why I torture myself with this movie.
It has it’s funny moments and of course it has Joel Kinnaman but Lola just drives me to distraction.
This is a woman who is reaching 30 but has done nothing with her life.
She even manages to scare Luke (Joel Kinnaman) away and make mistake after mistake before becoming happy with herself and then…….
Then she makes the biggest mistake of her life by rejecting Luke when he realises what a mistake he’s made by letting her go.
Hellooo!!
6 foot 4 of absolute cuteness and puppy dog eyes incarnate wants you to be his for life and you say……
‘I just need to do me for a while’.

WHAT AN IDIOT!

Anyway, time for some Star Trek…. Re-boot style.

DISH OF THE WEEK #47 – TOM HARDY

Time for another Brit.

This Dish has been bubbling on the back burner for quite some time.
It wasn’t until I saw him in ‘This Means War’ that he really hit the right spot with me.

He’s an actor that likes to transform himself for his roles.
He actually beefs up quite nicely but I like him best when he looks like this.

Tom Hardy 1

Tom Hardy.

He didn’t really come to my attention until his recent performances in This Means War with Chris Pine and also The Dark Knight Rises with Christian Bale.
However, in The Dark Knight Rises, you never get to see his face. This seems to be a theme with my Dish of the Weeks over the last year. Dredd has a lot to answer for!!

Tom Hardy 2

He’s very good at transforming himself physically.
This is how he looked for the film ‘Warrior’ that I still haven’t seen.

Tom Hardy 3

Compare that to the first thing I ever saw him in.
Star Trek – Nemesis

Tom Hardy 4

I think I am happy now that he has beefed up a little.
I am really looking forward to seeing him as the new Mad Max!!
