Lately I've been distracted by... a Paddy Considine interview, a Wolverine t-shirt, movie barcodes, Game of Thrones, and more!

I get distracted very easily. When I'm writing a review, researching an article, or I'm supposed to be working, things catch my eye and tempt me away from what I should be doing. Most of the time, these distractions are interesting and movie-related so I decided I would start making a note of them and then write up a post every once in a while. That way, my distractions are actually being put to good use on my blog... unless I get distracted while writing up the post about my distractions, that might cause some sort of paradox! Anyway, I'll worry about that later. Here's what I've been distracted by lately:

Paddy Considine is an inspirational wonder, here he talks about being recently diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome:

Mmm Threadless, a place that earns lots of my pennies by constantly showing off great t-shirt designs. This one is of Wolverine going through the metal detector at the airport:

I know I should be throwing lots of hatred at Abduction for being just a Bourne-imitating, post-Twilight Taylor Lautner vehicle, but the supporting cast includes some of my favourite actors: Jason Isaacs, Alfred Molina, Michael Nyqvist and Sigourney Weaver!

This site compresses each frame of a movie and arranges them into a movie barcode:
Here's one for Jaws...

The Guardian has an interview with director Luc Besson:

Total Film looks at some of the best long takes in movies:

I watched the first episode of Game of Thrones this week. I want a wolf pup! I also get the feeling I'm going to become very confused with all the different houses, so Screen Rant's Infographic should help:

Empire takes a look at the best finishing moves in movies:


  1. Likewise a little guilty for actually wanting to watch Abduction. John Singleton has that way about him. Similar guilt surrounded Four Brothers...which is great fun in a contemporary Lee Marvin "way to go slugger" kinda way.

  2. I also caught the first episode of Game of Thrones, it was fantastic, and true to the original source. It's going to be another winner for HBO.
