14/365: I loved Tulip in the comics and I love her being play by Ruth Negga on TV. I haven't loved a trigger happy badass on tv since Fiona from Burn Notice.
I'll post the rest of my catch up days tomorrow.
So privileged to have had the chance to watch a screening of the movie "Loving" directed by the incredible Jeff Nichols, featuring moving performances from both Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga. Surely will be down for some Oscars love #LovingFilm
"A bunch of Academy Award front-runners, including Emma Stone, Matthew McConaughey, Natalie Portman, Taraji P. Henson, Amy Adams and Chris Pine, have a message ahead of next week's inauguration of Donald Trump: "I Will Survive."
And we're back! Thanks for waiting!
______________________________________________ #10. Preacher:
Preacher was a bit of a sleeper hit for me. I am a casual fan of the comic so I didnt expect the show to grip me as much as it has. The show has serioud comedy chops but also stands on its own as an effective emotional drama and sort of a horror show too...and a bit of a western? The shows use of religion is brilliant and obviously an integral part of the source material, but instead of treating it like complete sci fi, Preacher finds a middle ground where you dont quite know whats going on, and in that ambiguity, Preacher thrives. The shows first season is slow, due mainly to it taking place before the meat of the comics actually begins, but its stellar cast pulls through to make every episode and emotional arc compelling. Ruth Negga especially shines here, fresh off of Agents of Shield, she has made her home as Tulip O'hare and its a match made in heaven. She is witty, funny and often terrifying. To back her up is Joe Gilgun who plays the role of Cassady the irish vampire. He plays this role too well. Every scene with him is pure magic and honestly is tje best part of the show. Dominic Cooper does a solid job as Jesse Custer but ultimately is the weaker link in an otherwise fabulous chain. This show may give AMC a new comic book seried that rivals TWD in time. Preacher is some heavily r rated, atheistic yet faithful fun that promises an even more exciting second season.
