You know you’re a Law and Order: Special Victims Unit addict when…

lincoln-movie-poster

You’re watching Lincoln and you recognize one of the actors as having been on an episode of Law & Order: SVU.

Not only that but I could describe EXACTLY what episode he was on and what happened on it.

Who am I talking about?

Joseph Cross

And the sad thing is that I haven’t seen him in ANYTHING else, JUST SVU.

It’s the episode where the father dies so the mother becomes all OCD protective of her kids, homeschooling them and only feeding them nutritious things even though they should be out socializing and living like kids. The younger son ends up being killed by the older son (Joseph Cross) in order to spare him from the foster care system but the gun jams when he tries to kill himself. His mother has filled both of them with the horrible lies about the outside world. They eventual end up running away but being caught later by Benson and Stabler.

He plays the roll of John Hay from Illinois.

And for those of you who haven’t seen the film yet. It is AMAZING!

Both Daniel Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones did an AMAZING job bringing the Lincoln story to life!

It’s like I LIVED through the Civil War while I was watching the film. Every actor and actress in the film was just magnificent!

Except maybe Joseph Gordon-Levitt…he had maybe 5 lines in the movie? Kind of didn’t fit? He fits more in the future (Inception & Looper) rather than Civil War times in my opinion. Just saying.

*SLIGHT SPOILER*

BUT you do get to see Daniel Day-Lewis give a good slap to his son (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in one scene. It wouldn’t be a Daniel Day-Lewis movie without it! It was amazing! TOTALLY made my day.

I couldn’t find a clip of it but this video should do for now.

And it really doesn’t matter if you don’t like historical films or not, this is one of those movies you DO NOT want to pass up. It has that same finesse that The King’s Speech has, it entraps you and makes you invested in the film. Even I began to wonder how it would end, even though obviously I knew that the Confederacy would surrender and the 13th Amendment would be passed, still I was on the edge of my seat till the very last second. It was more than just believable, it was as if I was fighting WITH the Union for equality! It really was intense.

It was a good way to spend my Saturday afternoon and I don’t regret it for a second.

I give Lincoln all the thumbs I have up! Go watch it! (And SVU).

Merry Christmas! Santa left another Blake Griffin commercial under the tree!

And once again Blake Griffin travels back in time, this time to 1999.

I kind of look forward to these commercials.

Funny how the first young Blake kind of looked like him with the curly hair and whiter face but the other ones don’t look like him.

Am I the only one who thinks so?

Haha. It was funny none the less.

Enjoy.

Contract the Rainbow

So we were watching the Timberwolves vs Thunder game yesterday when this commercial came on.

Contract the Rainbow, Taste the Rainbow!

Pretty cute right? Which got us talking about other priceless Skittles commercials when Mark showed me one I had never seen before.

You HAVE TO WATCH IT! IT IS HILARIOUS!

which reminded me of this moment from The Office:

Ah~ just priceless TV.

And just because I was talking about Christmas, I’ll leave with this;

Enjoy!

Time traveling hamsters? Really?

Time traveling hamsters really?

If I wasn’t embarrassed before I sure as hell am now.

I rather lie and say that I eat dog rather than admit to being from a race that created this kind of monstrosity.

Gross.

Miracle Whip has done it again!

They’ve turned the Scarlet Letter into…a Miracle Whip commercial?

Really?

Really??

I’m still sticking with Mayo.

Why is there a Top Gear America?

That is just wrong.

If I wanted to watch a bunch of dorky American dudes talking out of their asses about cars they don’t know jack shit about I would just go…just about anywhere.

If I wanted to hear a racer, actor and analyst about cars I might as well go ask Arie from The Bachelorette because I think even HE could tell me more about cars than these three knuckleheads.

Yes there has been a rising popularity in automobiles among our youth but we already have the original Top Gear as well as new shows like Counting Cars and American Choppers and what not. Do we REALLY need an AMERICAN Top Gear? Why does America have to ruin existing shows?

I hope all three of them get tractor foot!

(It’s an inside joke for those of you who have seen Here Comes Honey Boo Boo).

Die American Top Gear Die!
