Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... steaming it up with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Paul Bettany.

Posting that little picture of Jamie Lannister earlier today made this inevitable - once I've gazed upon the indefatigable jawline of Nikolaj, there can be no other.


I've only seen Wimbledon once and all I really remember from it is the sexual tension - perhaps entirely projected by me - between these two fellas. But I mean it's not like I had to work very hard if it was my projection since somebody was shooting these scenes to purposefully plant such seeds.

I mean, come on. Just go at it, you two! 

This reminds me that I haven't written anything about Headhunters, the really terrific Norwegian thriller with a very scary Nikolaj that's actually going to get a little release here in the States next month - I didn't think it was getting a release here and had gotten impatient with wanting to see it (it came out over yonder way back in August, and has been garnering enthusiasm ever since) so I downloaded it and watched it last month, but then I got all caught up in the Trousers and never found the time to write a review.

And now I've waited too long and my recollections are murky. But I did like it very much, I remember finding it very thrilling (a good thing for a thriller to be) - there's an especially memorable scary slash disgusting scene involving an outhouse - so you should definitely seek it out when you can. (I know, it was the outhouse thing that won you over.) Here, let me try this:

Perhaps these pictures of Nikolaj in a locker-room
in the film will convince you betetr than the outhouse thing?

I've seen this during its release in New Zealand and you won't be disappointed. Some very clever plot twists.

Keep an eye out for some production humour - The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is playing on a tv in the background during a scene.

Don't miss "AMSTERDAM", a top-10 of TV Series cancelled too early (1 don't get yer hopes up). Nevertheless, FANTASTIC!
