What a week! Sorry if my blog has taken a pounding recently. School holidays are always a tough time for me, because my part time job opens up, meaning that my days off from one job are swallowed up by the second. On top of that, I am starting a new acting job tonight, meaning that I have technically worked three different jobs in one week. The acting job is for a Murder Mystery company. Me and this company I work for, Candlelight Theatre, tour venues and as our audience eats their dinner, we provide them with a murder mystery event that ties in with their meal. For those who haven’t attended one before, me and my co-stars essentially go there as guests, but improvise our way through several arguments, confrontations and revelations, climaxing in one of our deaths. The guests have to try and figure out who did the murder. I start tonight and am beyond excited. Hopefully next Fantasy Acting Round I will let you know how it went.

However, the reason I am telling you this is to explain why my blog has had an empty week. I had no time to get to the cinema and my other reviews fell to pieces around me. On top of this, I have decided to take a week off to build up my backlog. Therefore, if I go missing, I will be back. And I already have a few pieces ready to go out, including a review of new DVD release, The Edge of Seventeen, a Star Trek movie and I better get around to Walking Dead’s finale too. Stay tuned for that. As for now, let’s dive into a very upsetting third round of the Fantasy Acting League, which sees two stars score maximum points and send one player soaring into an unbelievable league. The rest of us have our work cut out for us.

P.S: I missed some points last week, so Samuel L. Jackson and Toni Colette will have three points each added to their score.

Round Analysis

CINEMA PARROT DISCO! Forty points? Really? I mean… c’mon. The rest of us were casually playing, poking fun at each other when Vinnieh skipped ahead, charming, cheeky smile on his face. We all wagged our fingers playfully, tutting, knowing that even though he was ahead, we were all having fun. It was all to play for and that was half the f… Nope, big bully CPD marches in, slaps Vinnieh in the back of the head, kicks poor old me for having the cheek of being second and storms so far in the head, I am assuming she is taking a nap with her comfortable head start. The rest of us are snivelling and running back to our mothers. Sadly, WordPress states I cannot exclude her from the league for sheer dickbaggery, so we must suffer her.

No… I don’t remember me in this film either.

This is all down to Mr. L. Jackson absolutely dominating the league. Sure, he was great in Kong, but thanks to some delayed points from last month and a documentary where he provided the narration (actor speak for do a day’s work and pick up a fat paycheck). Fifteen points in one area is a massive help for anyone and it really made CPD soar ahead, especially coupled with Brie Larson’s twin movie run (it’s a shame Empire magazine put some of Kong’s shortcomings down to her and Tom Hiddlestone). Zoe Zermatten slipped into second though with a strong lead. She might be quite far behind Cinema Parrot Disco, but right now, she could be our only hope.

    • I was actually kind of regretting choosing him – he only has one more movie this year with a definite release date. But he does unexpectedly pop up in stuff all the time! 🙂
