  1. I've watched this movie multiple times this month because I really love it. The first 10 minutes surprised me too, but that's because I expected the movie to center around Lupita's character, Miss Caroline. I didn't realize the movie was actually David's story. I thought the first 10 minutes were needed for David's story arc, so I didn't mind (although the movie would have been even better had it centered entirely around Miss Caroline). Lupita was great, as were the children. I thoroughly enjoyed that the children in the movie didn't get the Hollywood treatment. I don't know why children
  2. *whispering* After thinking about it, imma need to ETA my earlier ETA and rescind my kudos to the writers due to INconsistency. How long does it take for someone to turn to turn after they've been infected? It seemed to take Carter and Amy a long time to turn, but the people Winston bit turned almost immediately. The lady in the cabin with Lila turned overnight. They need to establish a time frame and stick with it. What kills a viral and are the rules different when they're just infected vs. after they turn? I mean, Clarke and his soldiers killed Winston and the people he bit wit
  3. I just re-watched episode 9, and two things stood out to me. Someone mentioned this upthread but, the first time around, I missed when the soldier in Bolivia told Lear that the locals told them to kill Fanning. Of course Lear, in his arrogance and his God Complex and his selfish agenda, ignored them. Nevermind that they had probably experienced virals before and knew exactly what to do. The most poignant line in the whole finale was when Amy said something along the lines of how Lear and company had so many chances to turn back, but they never did. The second interesting thing was Shauna
  4. ...aka, when you tie yourself forever to a man who you know is in love with another woman and you're actually surprised that you make each other miserable. It's another episode of Smart Women, Dumb Choices. Yep. You know, that part really didn't surprise me. It seemed in keeping with his backstory. In the flashbacks, Carter seemed like someone who was empathetic towards other people, but surprisingly gullible and easily manipulated when it came to his own life. When he was running around biting people, I was thinking that he's definitely a follower, not a leader. Agreed.
  5. This was a great episode. I was genuinely shocked by the security guy who turned out to be a viral. Dumb mustache dude! See, arrogance is as dangerous as a loaded gun. Amy was killing me the whole show. I was so scared for her. When she was riding her bike down that tunnel all stressed and indecisive and stopped to go talk to and hug her mama while Brad was pouring out his heart to her? Lordt! I was a mess. I was thinking there were only two options, but my Amy found a third option! I can't wait to see where they go with this now that the virals are out and Lacey is on the way! The s
  6. I've got to agree with you on this one. She was waaay too calm. I kept waiting for her to freak out at some point, but no. She could have been buying carrots at the grocery store for all the emotion she showed. It was quite jarring. Her whole performance was very underwhelming.
  7. EXACTLY. Between Lear and Fanning, Elizabeth probably chose death just to escape both those arrogant azzholes. ....and it wasn't until l watched this episode that I realized i could read minds too. When Nichole shut off Elizabeth's machines and scurried out of that room she was thinking, "Yeah I feel bad for y'all, but I remember what happened with Carter. If this bish turn viral, I ain't gone be locked up a room with her!
  8. Brad and Amy made me cry this week when they were talking about grieving. Poor kid. It must have been so scary for her to have to run from and fight that maniac and face that she might turn into that same thing. That's a lot for anybody to process, especially a child. I was struck this week by how everyone (except Amy and maybe Lila) was both right and wrong. There are very few unqualified heroes and villains in this situation. Brad may legitimately care about Amy, but he is the guy who kidnapped her. Amy was right about that. A nice kidnapper is still a kidnapper. Lear and Sykes may have
  9. I.Loved.This^^^^. Oh, Fanning just KNEW he was dropping a bombshell on Lear, only to have Lear basically tell him, 'Oh, that? Yeah, I know. Liz told me. No biggie'. It was delicious. Me too! I want this so bad. I also want Lacey to survive a long time. She's such an interesting character. Yep. Agree with this as well.
  10. This. I found the backstories of Babcock AND Carter to be severely lacking. Yes, they both would have gotten serious jail time, probably even an unfair amount of time, but the death sentence? Naw. I just can't buy it. Plus, the fact that Shauna and her mother looked the same age in her flashbacks kept taking me out of the moment. I really wish they'd have used a younger actress. As for Carter, I really felt like they cheaped out on his backstory. It's like they were afraid to give him an actual reason to be on death row other than making him the poor widdle victim. Puh-lease. There are p
  11. Same. I actually said out loud, "Ummm, Sweetie, that's a vampire". When a show has me talking back to the characters, I know that I am fully engaged.
  12. Daryl is a grown-azz old man. If he doesn't want a leadership position, he can just not take it. Daryl is a grown-azz old man. It's inappropriate to even mention him as a potential romantic partner for Lydia, a girl young enough to be paired with a teenaged Henry.
  13. IA that it won't win, but, for me, that's not what's most important. The biggest significance of any Best Picture noms for BP is that it means that Danai and Lu will appear on the red carpet. I mean, all that other stuff (precedent, opportunity, etc) is great. Wonderful, but I just want to see Danai and Lu Sorry, not sorry.
  14. Eh. If not Star Trek, then another opportunity will come along. I'm not worried about Danai's career. As for the show, I'm okay if Danai signs up for one or more of movies to finish out Rick and Michonne's arc, but as for continuing to be a regular on TWD? That's the last thing I'd want for her.
