I suppose I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon watching Thor rescue someone who isn’t Tom Hiddleston.
(The movie is EXTRACTION, on Netflix. So far pretty standard; I have tea and a cooling cherry tart.)
I’ve noticed this before, but Thor has some very nice forearms.
And we have a murder by pitchfork/garden rake. Okay, movie. I’m sold.
I mean, I’m not cheap, but I can be had. Forearms, nice blue eyes, and a pitchfork murder? I’m on board.
Obligatory shirtless scene. I haven’t felt this obliged by a movie since PACIFIC RIM started its first robot battle.
“If you want to live you have to trust me.”
So far, we’re ticking all the boxes. All we’re missing is a time-traveling, homicidal robot!
Although I have to admit hearing Thor yell “FUCK OFF” in Aussie while driving at high speed is absolutely my cuppa.
Cue John Wick gun-fu. I have to go make dinner soon, but I’ll be back.
The kid lost his bulletproof vest (I sense a plot point) and Thor actually had to reload. Okay, I’m still in…
…but dinner has to be made. Sigh.
Fettuccine arrabbiata and cherry tart consumed, a glass of Syrah to the good, we’re ready for the last hour and a half of EXTRACTION.
Thor’s really been working on his parkour. He wants to prove to Hawkeye that he doesn’t NEED to fly to get the job done.
Clint just nods and rolls his eyes.
It’s really a shame Randeep Hooda doesn’t get more box-office play. He more than holds his own in every scene he’s in.
Knife fight interrupted by scooter!
Movie, you truly know the way to my heart, especially after a glass or two of Syrah.
Then the movie hits Thor with a small blue car.
I may have started cackling and yelling “OH CRAP!” so loudly the dogs are Concerned.
Thor, undeterred, hits Randeep Hooda with a bus.
I’m glad I broke for dinner. This movie, like most, is ever so much better with wine.
Ingenue Kid: “You hit him with a truck.”
Thor, clinging grimly to tasseled steering wheel: “…yep.”
“Okay, kid, we’re gonna jump on three.”
“One, two…” *shove*
I am cackling nonstop now.
So far, Randeep Hooda is stealing every damn scene in this movie he’s allowed to even get near.
PUT HIM IN MORE MOVIES.
@kasshelfant Well played, my friend. Well played indeed.
@lilithsaintcrow Watching a BBC documentary on the "Great Fire of London In Real Time."
Fifteen minutes in, and the bakery is lit.
@mwlucas I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.
