Tom Hiddleston isn't evil here; he's the guy who tries to warn the newbie off. Like that creepy dead guy at the beginning of Pet Sematary.
The awesome thing is, knowing Channing Tatum, if you were to do this as a short film, he'd probably be game for it.
Point well taken, but (unless he's stated otherwise) bear in mind that Kloves may have had to follow orders from either the directors or the studio, and--speaking as a semi-pro writer who's worked on adapting a novel for film--some of those adaptations (books 4 through 7 in particular) were really, really difficult (length, condensing 10 hours of story into 2 hours of movie). I give him major points for not screwing up the series overall--almost unspeakably difficult given the massive competing economic forces at work.
SO MUCH WIN to deitybox and jillheather.
Great article on Lynch. Interesting how TV's been able to make some progress with sex scenes ("Girls," "Catastrophe," "The Americans") while film still seems stuck.
That is a fox.
There were three other people in the original painting.
The fox ate them.
By this, I do not mean "the real-life fox, while posing, ate three real-life models." NO. THE PAINTING-FOX ATE THE PAINTING PEOPLE. AND NOW IT'S COMING FOR US. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, MALLORY. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. ALL HAIL FAT PAINTING-FOX AND PLEASE DO NOT EAT ME.
I have ADD-Inattentive (coupled with anxiety), and I wasn't properly diagnosed until age 32, so this very much resonated with me. Thank you for writing it; it takes a lot of courage to open yourself up like that.
That's pretty awesome. I would think it was awesome even if I didn't have depression/ADD, even if I didn't have a former girlfriend with rheumatoid arthritis, 2 really good friends with Crohn's, a best friend who was legally blind...shut up, gregm, this is not about you.
(And co-sign to God needing wolf drawings.)
Thank you both for creating the hashtag (I followed the tumblr obsessively) and for writing this. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. It's bizarre-slash-horrifying how men could be so threatened by a simple, truthful hashtag.
Only own 4 (Infinite Jest for the win!) But i've read 25. Including ATLAS SHRUGGED. Dear God, why did I do that?
