The Walking Dead Season 4 Preview

After three awesome seasons it’s sure that this is one of the best shows on TV. The next season of  The Walking dead is set to premiere in October. It’s feels like a long time doesn’t it??

From the look of the trailer there is going to be a lot more action, lot more walkers and definitely a lot more thrills and scares. There are new characters, the protection of the prison seems to be failing and someone is letting walkers (a.k.a Zombies) into the cell blocks.

They seem to be showing a lot of Daryl Dixon in the trailer. I really hope that the same will be true for the show. Everyone in the cast is really good but for me Norman Reedus is the best!!

Enjoy the trailer!!

Sunday Song#5

Song: Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins from the album “…But Seriously”(1989).

This is one of my dad’s all time favorite songs. I grew up listening to Phills Collins, Queen, Pink Floyd, etc. Dad used turn the the TV to an english music channel in the mornings and we used to listen to these artists and others everyday while we got ready for work or school (in mycase).

Various Faces Of Hannibal Lecter

As far as disturbing characters go, Hannibal Lecter deserves a definite spot on the Top 5.  No one can forget the face with the mesh mask over the mouth(to keep him from tearing people up with his mouth).  Silence of the lambs came out in 1991, the year I was born, and it was only in 2006 that I watched it for the first time  and absolutely loved the movie. Since then I have watched all the movies  in the series(except manhunter) and have read all the novels.

The first season of Hannibal, the new TV series, is what made me write this post.

Lecter,_Hannibal

For those of you who don’t know, Dr.Hannibal Lecter  is brilliant psychiatrist who is also a cannibalistic serial killer. He only became a main character in the novels in the third book, till then he only had a small part.

The same can’t be said for the movies. Anthony Hopkins did absolutely brilliant performance as Lecter in Silence of the lambs making sure that he became a main character from the start itself.

Remember this line from Dr.Lecter?
“A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”

In all four different actors have played the role of Dr.Lecter-
Brian Cox( Manhunter),
Anothny Hopkins(Silence of the lams, Red Dragon, Hannibal),
Gaspard Ulliel ( Hannibal Rising) and
Mads Mikkelsen ( Hannibal: TV series) .
Even though the character is the same each actor does it a little different, as expected.

Anothny Hopkins is so far the best in portraying Lecter. Mads Mikkelsen comes second as far as I can tell. He does good job of acting but his version of Lecter lacks the creepy undertone. That might be because the first season didn’t show much about Hannibal’s side of story instead focusing more on Will Graham.

The first season of the new show finished last week and I thought it was  good but the pace was a little slow . Probably a 3 out of 5 rating from my side. There isn’t that many disturbing scenes from Lecter as I thought there would be.  Even though the show is called Hannibal the part I liked the most was Hugh Dancy as Will Graham. Will wait for the second and I hope they pick up the pace.

 

Three Current Favorites On TV

I read a couple of blogs today where people wrote of favorites. Favorites movies, music, etc. So I thought I’ll join the club and write about the my three favorite guys on television right now. These guys have remained my favorites for some years now and will probably remain so for some more years. Continue reading to see the names and what I found to be the best character they portrayed. mash

So without further ado, here’s the guys :

1. Norman Reedus
Character: Daryl Dixon
Show: The Walking Dead

I liked watching Boondock Saints, I know it’s a terrible movie but I just couldn’t stop watching. The plot is so ridiculous in it and even though it’s supposed to be an action movie it felt more like a comedy or spoof.Even so I did like Norman Reedus in the movie and he’s the reason why I started watching The Walking Dead. It turned out to be the best show I’ve seen, other than Friends. The show wouldn’t be the same without Daryl Dixon. Who would thought a character like that would create such a big fan base. Credit for that goes to Reedus for doing a terrific job of bringing to life the zombie a** kicking, crossbow-wielding bad a**. Eagerly waiting for the next season of the show.

2. Tyler Hoechlin
Character: Derek Hale
Show: Teen Wolf

Okay, so this guy’s acting like a werewolf/tough guy is great but whether he can do other roles is left to be seen. I haven’t seen him in any other movie or tv show so I can’t tell how good he can act in a-normal-person role. Good actor or not this guy makes my list on looks alone. 😉

3. Matt Bomer
Character: Neil Caffery
Show: White Collar

You have probably seen the show or seen him on Magic Mike or in Glee, and there’s no lack of talent he can act, dance and sing. Being the art thief turned CI on White Collar is what I believe his best acting. I haven’t seen him in any other movie or show than those mentioned above. But judging from White Collar we will probably be seeing more from him in years to come.

 

Feel free to let me, and everyone else who are reading, know who your favorites are.

Sunday Song

This is literally the first song I’ve heard of Coldplay. Can you believe that!
I always used to change the channel if their songs come on TV because somehow I never liked any of them. Then I heard this song and for some reason I didn’t change the channel . I liked it from the first second it started playing and it’s still on my playlist today. I have listened to five or six of there songs after coming across Paradise but only liked two songs so far : Every Teardrop is a waterfall and Viva La Vida.

If you think that there is any song by Coldplay that I should definitely listen to, then let me know.

This is one of the songs that help me get through my bad mood. As some you may have read in my previous post I have some reasons to be in a bad mood. It’s getting better. I recover fast, thank god!

Who Knew!!

One of the best cartoons and of  THE best series on TV. Who would have thought they were related!  Thanks mainly to Jim Parsons, my favorite in the show, this show is simply awesome. I don’t think anyone could have made a better Sheldon Cooper than him.  I initially started watching from Season 5 but loved it so much that I made it a point not to miss the reruns. Since I quit my job I have been spending a little extra time in front of the TV but thanks to shows likes these TV is still entertaining.
