    Kiddo will you please write a song/poem about Bear Gryllis’ butt-ring proposal?
    pwettty pweeese?

    • blue marie says:

      Because of your comment I clicked on the link, I will never forgive you.

      • Kiddo says:

        Thanks for taking a hit for the team. *Throws both jam and jelly at blue marie*
        I will not look. I think Jaderu might just be issuing potato revenge, the very worst kind of revenge there is.

      • mimif says:

        I’m giggling because poor blue marie always clicks on the link. And Kiddo is the songwriter/poet around here, a veritable Joni Mitchell if you will. Come on, Kiddo, give it a shot. blue marie will sing it for you.

      • Jaderu says:

        I really am shocked and hurt that you thought this was just a ruse to get blue marie to click out of some spiteful tater vengeance. I truly am touched by your eloquent prose and jingle writin’ skills. I was going to ask you to write a nice little opening monologue for my celebratory Cloomuddingle luncheon, but now I’m just *sniff* going to get Franco. I hope you’re happy. He’s going to make me take selfies. I just know it. *sob*

    • Kiddo says:

      He got waved in paradise and pulled out a poopy rock!
      (sung to Big Yellow Taxi).

      ETA: What’s this about the FRANCO? !

      I got nothing DONE today, nothing. Saturday will hate me.

      ETA further: @ mimif, I am writing songs as Joni Mitchell Swift. Please, nothing is as poignant as a spark and twigs and yelling at twigs. SO, Good day……


      • mimif says:

        Dying at poopy rock.

        Songs are like tattoos
        You know I’ve been to sea, FRA-NCO
        Crown and Royal me
        Or let me hav-er-ing away…

        Hey (baby) Blue
        Here is a Saturday for you
        Post on a thread
        Underneath the muumuu
        An empty space to bedazzle…

        *Omg what’s happening to me. Requesting french fries & Pinot ASAP!

      • Kiddo says:

        Haha. See, you’re a bit of a Swift-Joni Mitchell writer yourself.

  2. Lilacflowers says:

    But he is so pretty.

    • 'P'enny says:

      Lol pretty true, when u read about this film it seemed very unoriginal. But I enjoyed mann’s Miami vice 😜 so I will see it on download.

    • jammypants says:

      so very pretty

    • Mia4S says:

      Meh, I don’t know. He’s got a FANTASTIC body, but the face?…meh. It doesn’t help that I find him really unimpressive as an actor. He was OK in Rush but again…Meh.

      • alex_r says:

        His eyes are too small for his face. Looks a but odd to me, like JLaw’s face.

      • Greata says:

        Have to agree, he is a weak actor, even in Rush, Daniel Brühl stole the movie away from him. He lacks a certain gravitas. Maybe he night be better at character actor type roles.

      • Kate says:

        I didn’t even think he was very good in Rush. The bits where he was being a charming party boy were fine, nothing amazing but adequate, but I didn’t buy it for a second when he was meant to be all depressed.

        Not to mention he had the much showier, louder, more instantly likeable part, but Daniel Bruhl still completely eclipsed him right from his first moments on screen.

    • Josa says:

      He is pretty, oh so pretty. His bodybuilder body, not my taste.

    • Isadora says:

      Very pretty! But I was distracted by the music in the trailer. That’s Antony and the Johnsons, right? God, I love them, never knew they did a cover of that song.

      I don’t care about the film, but if it’s just an hour of slo-mo gun fights, Chris Hemsworth and Antony, then I’m fine.

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Isadora, OMG those *are* Anthony and the Johnsons! And I was toying with commenting on the music being the best part of the trailer – and thinking that the voice sounded veeery familiar – but then got distracted by the sheer tragedy that this trailer is 😀 LUURVE Anthony and the Johnsons, such awesome music weirdos.

  3. Nuzzybear says:

    I think Blackhat looks great, but I have information security on the brain.

  4. InvaderTak says:

    Can’t be worse than snow white.

    • Jaderu says:

      Bite your tongue!!! Or fingers…
      Dopey’s performance was ate up with method, Oscar worthy realness!

      Edit: Perhaps you meant the Kristen Stewart abomination that 2012 burped out and not the ’38 classic? I apologize about the finger thing.
      My review of Dopey’s performance however, still stands.

      • InvaderTak says:

        Yes indeed, I was refering to Snow White and the Huntsman. Laziness on my part for not typing the whole title but in fairness, it is undeserving of such considerations.

        Agree about Dopey though.

    • Isadora says:

      Ah, come on… the costumes in SWATH were very pretty, Charlize Theron was great and the rest… yeah, that was painful. But hey, it had Lily Cole in it! *lol*

  5. lunchcoma says:

    Why do people insist on making movies about hackers? Watching someone hack is simply not very interesting, which means all kinds of nonsense needs to be grafted onto the movie to make it watchable. Why not just make a heist film if you want your movie to be about sneaky clever people?

    • venus velvet says:

      Are keyboard sound effects still being used, or is that officially outdated yet?

    • Hello Kitty says:

      Th only hacking movie I would watch is a Hackers sequel with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Lee Miller reprising their roles. Why are we getting this turd instead? Although I do have a soft spot for Leehom Wang (Asian detective in the trailer). He’s a pop singer and actor in Taiwan. I like it when Asian actors break into Hollywood.

    • Misstee says:

      Plus Hackers rarely look like they work part time for the SAS at weekends….

    • Grace says:

      Hear, hear

  6. Intro Outro says:

    Ooops, was expecting more from Blackhat. Maybe the trailer doesn’t do it justice?

    • Grace says:

      It’s not the trailer but the premise, or the premise we see from the trailer, does it not sound like things that have been done times and times before? And it has a 007 vibe too…

      • Intro Outro says:

        *sighs* IKR? And Chris really looks quite uncomfortable and probably is indeed miscast.. I guess I was trying to find an excuse for CHemboy, I quite like him as a person. Oh well.. Here’s hoping that Heart of the Sea with awesome Murphy and Gleeson will turn out better than this =(

  7. Val says:

    Glad to hear Kimye was booed. Making the designer wait for HIS own show?!! Seriously who the f are you?!

  8. Charlie says:

    Some of those anti-vaccination celebrities are surprising. I mean, you expect Kristin Cavallari to be an idiot, but Mayim Bialik? And the most idiotic statement comes from Bill Maher.

    I’m so happy I live in a country where vacinating your kids is compulsory. I think we’re actually the first country to make it compulsory.

    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      I clicked on this link in fear of finding someone I admire on the list and now I am hugely disappointed in Bialik. Her stance on this is more dangerous and damaging than Jenny McCarthy’s because everyone knows McCarthy is an idiot and only another idiot would treat her words as wisdom but when someone like Bialik – with P.hd, known as the smart and knowledgeable one, says she’s anti-vaccination, people might think there must be something about this and follow her lead.

    • Courtney says:

      I know I’m going to get flamed for this, and just note my kid is up to date on his vaccines, but I have no problem with non-vaxxers. We can all think of tons of stuff that was once considered safe that now we know wasn’t (smoking comes to mind first). I don’t blame mamas for going with their gut.

      • 'P'enny says:

        – but, for example, take in consideration the amount of kids that have suffered with measles in the UK because of the scare against being immunised. If your child went blind or seriously brain damaged because the kids as his school didn’t vaccinate you may not be quite so ‘understanding’

        oh and how did this conversation get into this thread?

      • Charlie says:

        There is something called herd immunity. Them not vaccinating their kids puts every kid at risk.

  9. sesame says:

    Chris Hemsworth as a genius Ivy League-type hacker?
    …er, sure, I believe. Hard to understand the plot from the boring and generic trailer.

  10. lisa2 says:

    I know it is just my bias but he doesn’t fit the part of the hacker to me. I just don’t see it. And it seems like from the trailer that they had one movie in mind then they got Chris for the role and changed it to try and make it an action film instead of some intense drama of trying to catch the hacker.

    I won’t be seeing it at a theater. I agree with one of the posters Chris has a good body.. hot in fact; but something about his face when he is not Thor doesn’t do anything for me. and besides that I don’t like the way he walks.. that is a thing for me.

  11. aquarius64 says:

    I can wait until Netflix or Red Box for this one. This was done years ago, and it was called “Swordfish”. Sadly this part looks like a cash grab for Chris, but I partly can’t blame him. He’s got three little mouths to feed and Elsa’s not bringing home the bacon with her blog.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Didn’t he earn 37 million last year? You can buy a whole pig farm with that. I am a Loki (ahem) girl and don’t fancy Chris, but he’s a good looking man who is fine in parts that suit him. Like Ben Affleck in fact. Outside the comfort zone, not so good.

  12. Josefa says:

    I like Chris. I don’t find him completely incompetent as an actor, he’s quite charismatic imo. He made Thor, who is the epitome of the alpha male testosterone filled macho man, pretty relatable. He’s an insanely good looking man who does his job well enough, but he isn’t excellent by any means.

    He’s awfully miscast here, though.

  13. 'P'enny says:

    oh dear, i couldn’t see the clip until i got home, and now i have, and I couldn’t get to the end. It was bad, very very bad. 🙁 poor Chris, he seems miscast and what’s with the american accent? good grief. it may survive a box-office dive, because Mann may pull something watchable over an hour and half, but that film trailer needs serious work. i wouldn’t even download it now, on the strength of that! it’s like Agents of Shield – awful!

  14. Hi there, its good post about media print, we all be familiar with media is a fantastic source
    of facts.

  15. derpshooter says:

    I had to watch the trailer on mute b/c my girls are beside me…but it looks like Hemsworth is Hollywood’s idea of a brogrammer. I like him as a actor, but Imma havta pass on this if that’s the case.

  16. derpshooter says:

    All of those people on Pajiba’s anti-vaxxer “Murderer’s Row” are people I consider stupid. Not uneducated, not unintelligent (in certain areas) necessarily. But generally stupid. Except maybe Mayim Byalik, b/c I just don’t know too much about her. Why would anyone want to follow in Rob Schneider’s footsteps?

  17. Alicia says:

    Ok I will be honest, movie looks LAME but Chris Hemsworth looks GOOD SOOOO GOOD
    I love him more than anythinhg, he is my dream man…. but even though that, I think I would probably stab my eyes with sharp pencils before sitting there for two hours watching that crap, I can use thar time to watch a picture of him or an interview
