And I actually kind of hated Thor. Its only redeeming quality was Hiddles, and he is one hell of a redeeming quality.
Write a Leslie Howard biopic for Tom Hiddleston to star in.
I’m 1000% convinced that Grandma Hiddles had a torrid affair with Leslie Howard and you can’t prove me wrong.
Yes, there was a brief period when I tried very hard to be a part of the Thor fandom because ex-BFF was so into it he began to identify as a Jotunn. And I was able to succeed because Hiddles. And Loki actually being a somewhat interesting character.
Now ex-BFF is out of my life, and I’m back to considering what I first thought of the whole franchise when I first watched it: what a stupid fucking movie. It just needs to be an hour and a half of Tom Hiddleston talking and crying.
A big part of it is that I really, really, really like Norse mythology. Like you know the actual gods and goddesses that my Nordic ancestors worshipped. I drew quite heavily on Norse mythology when I was writing Masters of the World (particularly relating to Ragnarok), and I want to keep those themes when I go back to working on it. Watching Thor completely bastardize these powerful myths, all I could think was holy shit, now I know what cultural appropriation feels like.
Plus all the CGI abuse, general mindlessness, cliched love plots, etc. etc. means ugh idgaf.
with weird Tommy Wiseau hair.
Maybe I’ll just watch the scenes with Hiddles because really. I could watch him just touch his neck for three hours straight.
I write a screenplay for a movie starring Tom Hiddleston and I have to re-write a few things to get the character right.
Tom: “I’ve never worked with a screenwriter who needed to play with my hair for five hours to figure out my character.”
Me: “Shhhhhhhh no talking just touching.”
preferably while sitting in his lap.
because actors sometimes do book narrations and the result is amazing (for reals, the only person allowed to narrate Lolita is Jeremy Irons. Now and forever. If you have never heard this amazement, you need to go buy a copy. NOW)
I was contemplating how awesome actors + books can be when I realized I though OMG THAT IS SO SOMETHING HIDDLES WOULD DO
I asked mom if Hiddles had anything, and she searched and said no.
Hiddles reads the Prose Edda omfg.
So, fanchildren, which book would a hiddleston narration of make you akfhs;hs;aghak;ghs;h;g?
if Flight were going to be made into a movie, I kind of want Tom Hiddleston to be Yuri Gagarin.
I know, I know that Tom is tall and skinny and Yuri is short and thick but COME ON. Hiddles has the all-important huge, toothy smile.
Anyway, Yuri has one big scene in Flight (although he does make a minor appearance or two beforehand) but it’s the one scene that’s supposed to tear into your chest and rip out your still-beating heart and then stomp all over it. Whoever does Yuri has to be able to @w@ like a mofo and nobody, NOBODY can @w@ like Hiddles.
am I crazy or amirite?
