Usually I try not to give in to Internet memes or anything that might be described as “viral.”
But I freely confess that I am not immune to the Adam Driver cat. Especially not after (finally) seeing Adam Driver as Kylo Ren in the new Star Wars movie. I felt an overwhelming sense of relief that the movie is actually good. Sorry George Lucas, but the last three movies were the worst-written, worst-directed pieces of shite I could possibly have imagined. And this is someone who LOVES Star Wars talking. I saw the original when I was twelve. When the giant spaceship loomed overhead in the first scene, I instinctively ducked! I was in love with Han Solo! I bought a vinyl record of the John Williams soundtrack, with the dorky music from the canteen! I stood in line for hours in the mall to see The Empire Strikes Back!
Thank gods they stripped George Lucas of creative control this time around. How could such a storytelling genius completely lose his mojo? Is it the result of too much success, of being in a bubble where nobody has the courage to tell you that you’re headed for crapville?
In any case, I loved the movie. And I adored the actor who looks like that cat named Kylo Ren.
erm not sure i find him sexy myself but he certainly acted well! good character and hopefully we’ll see more of him! I wasn’t sure about this one, a bit of story repeat from the old ones but i guess predictably. But it was a nice change from just action action action, though of course SW is about action!
I love the movies 🙂
On the note of big cats 🙂 this one is purring nicely too 😀 (though in fairness puppy eyes is a much better description)- this is where the Richard II is happening:
http://www.bam.org/theater/2016/richard-ii It’s at the BAM, hopefully you’re dates coincides, i really can’t recommend him and the play enough! Must see 🙂
Yes, it was something of a remake of the first SW movie, but it recombined those elements in a good way, I thought. Very much a crowd-pleaser for the fans who loved the original.
As for Adam Driver, I first saw him in Lena Dunham’s “Girls” and thought he was very sexy. It helps that he has a great body. Usually I don’t go for the young ones, but he’s just mesmerizing. I like his unhandsome looks. He has a nose like Pete Townshend whom I also love, LOL.
So heartbreaking about the BAM, we will be there on the 24th but are seeing Crucible that night! And then it’s not playing Friday, and then we leave! Might have to see whether a return trip is possible, later in the Spring. Thanks for the link.
That is one cool looking cat! Hubby and I were very pleasantly surprised at the recent Star Wars film. Laughed all the way through. Well, almost all the way. One part gutted me.
Oh, I think I might know which part you mean… me too.
We need a “love” button. Funny and good.
Thanks Ellen! I can’t stop looking at that cat 🙂 I want him!
Reminds me a bit of this – http://sarahjessicaparkerlookslikeahorse.com/ 🙂
Yep, it’s that big honker of a nose in both cases 🙂
