It was on my TV about two hours ago, and I learnt then that they’re coming back with a song called Skydive! If you haven’t heard it already, check it out!
O -Town - Skydive
Loving this song right now, so glad these guys have decided to come back (even if, probably to some people, “they’re just the latest to jump on the reunion wagon”).
O-Town: Then & Now
(I think I prefer them more “now”, although I was crazy about them “then”)
Rediscovering O-Town like the derpy teenager I was back when I first heard them!!
And, I remember most of the words - even to songs I haven’t heard in 12 years!
WHY, when I’m listening to a piece of music from The Monuments Men, do I think of Tom Builder? And WHY do I then proceed to the relevant tag here on Tumblr? And WHY am I currently blubbering like a baby over him all over again?
Damn you, Rufus Sewell. Damn you & your brilliant acting talent!
A fine example of a man ageing both gracefully & beautifully.
Yep, can definitely see the sibling connection they were trying to subtly go for with these two characters. I’ve never seen it before, though, because they’re rarely seen side by side in the film.
So, is Barts a pseudonym? It must be. As, I suppose, Adam & Jack actually are. If they’re both about 5000 years old that is. I can’t imagine they were their birth names…and, is Jack the older sibling, or is Adam? Must be Adam, for he is the one from whom all others are made. Well, no, he was maybe turned first and then turned his siblings. Doesn’t mean Adam is the eldest of the three (there is their sister, Vadoma, as well) though.
Sorry, this is the writer peeking out in me. I might have to explore these thoughts a little more some other time…
I’ve already bought a brand new copy on the Amazon marketplace for £5 (it was selling through the main Amazon page for nearly £16, so that’s quite the bargain), but thanks for the offer anyway! :)
I don’t actually mind it being a graphic novel more than an art-book actually, as it sounds like it’ll be useful in understanding the film a little more. Like how I never realised, until now, that Jack & Adam are supposed to be brothers. It’s never ventured in the film in a way that it’s obvious. It’s underlying, but remembering scenes now it’s more obvious. Like the anger Adam feels upon realising Jack has died at the hands of Abraham, when he looks down in the coffin that bears him. That’s when his efforts to claim America for the vampires ramps up & he tries to make it personal with Abe. But, the way Adam treats Jack in their first scene together, it’s always made me think that Jack was nothing more than a lackey sent up north due to some insubordinance, whilst Adam ‘lived it up’ in his plantation house in the South with loyal & obedient Vadoma. And it makes more sense why Henry includes Jack with Vadoma & Adam in that slideshow - in order of ranking as well. There are no others shown on-screen in that scene, except those three. That one family. And, of course, there are those similarities between the two actors that allow for that sibling connection to be made. They look somewhat similar, what with the curly dark hair; enough so that they might just pass for brothers.
(Rambling again - well, no, I’m enthusing a little too much again.)
Okay, so I start following the Aaron Tveit tag again, because I’m getting back into Graceland (having had work mess up my original viewing schedule on season 1), and I find that the Americans on the tag have already seen about 6 eps of season 2!! That’s not fair! I’ve only just watched E7 of S1 today!! And, OMG!! It’s all starting to come out of the woodwork now! What I’ve allowed myself to see of Season 2, whilst avoiding spoilers, looks more intense than what S1 is playing out to be right now (for me at least). I’m not sure I’ll cope with more teary-eyed Aaron on my TV screen!
This is one of those times I wish I was an American, or at least in America. They get the seasons of the good shows before us (in England)!
*slow clap* You should take a glimpse at the art book if you can get it or download it. It gives a touch more characterization. He’s a fun character to play with; he’s like clay that you can mold a story around since he’s not given much of his own.Art book? I never thought about there being an art book, although it looks more like a graphic novel from what I’ve seen. I always love to have the art books of my favourite films, so this will be another to add to my collection.
The full line-up of Marvel films through 2019.
EDIT: Damn, it’s fan made. I was so excited too. I will stab a bitch for an Inhumans movie.
I know the film ended with that ambiguous ending for Henry, with him sitting at a bar centuries’ later and asking the man next to him the same thing he had asked Abraham all those centuries before, but what would have made it even better was an end-of-credits scene. Back at the still-smoking wreckage of the bridge & the train and everything is silent & still, as the camera zooms in to focus on the carriage that landed on Adam, when suddenly a wounded right hand bursts through the rubble. On the fourth finger is that familiar ring. Then, blackness.
Even if there is never a sequel, it would have made for a greater end scene for Adam than the one he got. Like I’ve said over & over again, it just seemed too lazy in my opinion. Too quick & easy. Especially without that subtext at the end, although we do have to question why Henry is looking for a new “disciple”.
I’m sitting here, listening to the ALVH soundtrack, and can’t help but think that I was lying the other day when I said John Murdoch is my favourite Rufus Sewell character. Adam is, if I’m honest. I mean, yes, in Dark City we are given a glimpse of naked Rufus just after a bath, and John has his good points. But, Adam is a vampire. And vampires are often quite seductive beings. Those who are still relatively human at least. There are the occasional ones that resemble something more extra-terrestrial, but let’s forget them. I’m going to continue under the break, as it turns out I have quite a bit to say on the matter, again, and I don’t suppose a lot of my followers will want a long essay purely about Adam on their dashboards.
