I'm a bit tired, but I can't sleep.
Just like I'm stuck without inspiration or willpower.
Can it be monday please? Now?
okay then, copypaste of what was going to be a vlog. Not to waste your RSS feeds, eh?
"My first vlog. I thought it might be worth giving a try. Now, I’ve been wondering what I’d make this first one about. I’ve been thinking what accent to use. But I thought it might be more honest if I use my own australo-americo-belgian accent. This way, I can talk about whatever and not think about the accent.
I’m ripping of loads of people like this, but no-one will notice if I call it homage, right?
My favorite actors. This one is even more difficult than my favorite movies. You see, when picking a favorite movie, you only have to consider how much you enjoyed it or which one you want to see the most right now, or whatever. Favorite actors don’t work that way.
So, I came up with criteria:
I have to enjoy watching him (or her).
He (or she) has to be diverse in his or her way of acting.
Then limit that list to five, because I could still name too many actors.
Now, in no particular order, here they are.
Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Dame Judi Dench and Kevin Spacey.
I was going to just enter “random stuff here” on my script-thing, because I didn’t know what to say. But then it came back to me. For your information, this stuff came to me yesterday, as I was falling asleep.
Basically, there’s one thing 2of these actors have something in common:
They’ve never played a villain (3 if you don’t think the Cable Guy had a villain).
I think Johnny Depp would play an amazing Evil Overlord. Judi Dench would be astounding as an evil, but very sensible, calm and british empress-witch-queen-whatever.
Because, ya gotta give, Gary Oldman as Dracula was amazing (also one of the few non gay vampires (*cough cough*). Wow. Acornfilmsrippof, anyone. ANYWAY.
Kevin Spacey as SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER Kaiser Söze.
But how about Johnny Depp as a sadistic serial killer? (oh... wait... rofl :p) (how many of those HAS he played? 2? 3?)
Seriously though. Johnny Depp is charming, but I want to see him play evil OPENLY.
I’m still convinced that the only people who have fun are evil and chaotic neutral characters. (DEADPOOOOL :D!)
Jack Sparrow, Deadpool, most serial killers, Jafar, Oogie Boogie, Hans Gruber, The Joker...
It’s the evil ones that know how to have fun. The good guys are full of despair, try to have fun but fail, or are just angsty in general.
Good => Boring
Evil => Fun
Light => Predictable
Dark => Awesome
I’m good at derailing topics, aren’t I?
There’s something else about those 5 Actors(/-rice).
You could say that one of them doesn’t fit in there. But then I point out, annoying little twerp that I am, that not a single one of them “just fits” in there.
Jim Carrey is the only Stand up Comedian in there.
Judi Dench is the only woman
Kevin Spacey is the only one who regularly plays people without hair. (It’s a long shot. I know. Shut up)
Gary Oldman is the only one that makes most people go “huh? Whuzzat?” (Sirius Black. Idjut)
Johnny Depp is the only one who has an island. Or, acting capabilities considered, the only one who was known as a movie-breaker, dooming every movie he was in to become a flop until he did pirates.
But there are different criteria on which you can choose your favorite actors. For example, which ones would survive a zombie-apocalypse!
(I’ve seen yesterday that Bill Murray wouldn’t. He’s very bad at practical jokes, after all).
Lemme just name those, then:
... Err... I’m seeing a pattern here.
I wonder if you’ve heard of it, but Stallone is making a new action flick: “The Expendables.”
You know, you could condemn him for his silliness, being as old as my grandparents, scold him for the fact that he’s still filming after he’s broken his neck.
But then you can start revering him. The above actors, for one, are ALL IN IT! (why revere Stallone for that? He brought them together. Yeah, I should’ve mentioned that >.<)
That movie will rule.
Other actors that would survive the zombie apocalypse, or at least go out really badass:
Morgan Freeman/Clint Eastwood (They’re joined at the hip anyway)
Keanu Reeves (Zombies don’t attack each other anyway)
Pretty much every wild and dangerous animal living in Australia. Like:
Here’s a question for you: would you survive the zombie apocalypse? If you’re honest with yourself? Of course not.
But it’s nice to pretend you would."
