A legit category that will surprise absolutely no one: Film posters featuring Tom Hardy’s back.
i need to rewatch star trek nemesis. i saw it in theatres. even at the age of twelve, having seen perhaps three episodes of ST:TNG in my entire life, i still knew that it was painfully, painfully terrible.
cyberrubis asked: the fact that you didn't mention before that you saw Locke in London left me flabbergasted! I do understand that your priority lied with your unconditional love for Tilda/TomHiddles and goth lyfe~ But omission of Tom Hardy feels like a betrayal towards your poor ol' Inception fandom, RIGHT? Please rectify it by showering us, mere peasants who don't have chance to see it yet, with your tender thoughts on the film, PLEASE *Hiddles eyes* (coz i know you dislike puppies)
well, tbh locke hasn’t had much lasting impact on me, other than confirming my belief that tom hardy is an unbelievably talented actor. it’s quite a “small” film: basically personal/family drama about an ordinary guy, told entirely through phone calls he makes while driving his car across england one night. the whole thing takes place inside tom hardy’s car and it’s very gripping, but there’s not really much to say other than that he’s very good? it’s best to go in knowing as little as possible about the actual storyline because the entire point of the movie is the way small aspects of his life reveal themselves during the phone conversations. it includes voices from tom holland, olivia colman, andrew scott (AKA moriarty from bbc sherlock) and ruth wilson, if that’s any help.
Locke review that notes something essential to Tom Hardy’s superb acting skill (and related to being able to move every part of your face independently):
Not many actors can carry a movie for 84 minutes entirely on their own, and even fewer could do so in a way that leaves a lasting impression.
Hardy manages to assure that we are on his side from the get-go, regardless of the grave mistake he’s made. His face registers several emotionsat once while his tear-stained eyes tellingly convey sorrow, rage, and despair.
While the actor has headlined his fair share of box office bait, most notably The Dark Knight Rises, some of his most riveting work has been in more stripped down projects like Nicolas Winding Refn’s Bronson. Locke cements (no pun intended) Hardy’s status as one of Hollywood’s most promising talents. // review@GeekNation
*quietly weeps, aka my default state when reblogging tom hardy and/or pining for Locke*
i saw this movie at the london film festival last week, and tom hardy was BEYOND AMAZING. it’s really not the kind of film i’d ordinarily see, but wow. wow.
The first .gif I’ve ever bothered to make and it’s dedicated to Tom Hardy’s hypnotic eyebrows.
this showed up on my dash right after that tumblr post that’s all “If you die suspiciously, the police checks your internet history,” and all i could think is IF I DIE SUSPICIOUSLY, MY CAUSE OF DEATH WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BE TOM HARDY
coincidentally, your entire internet history will also be tom hardy
