I'm Scott, I live in Indianapolis and wish I lived elsewhere.
I post pictures from movies and tv shows I like and complain about things I don't like. Also, sports.
Talk to me.
My re-watch of Justified has been making me think about this somewhat. Hollywood has never really given a shit about making films, and especially tv shows feel like they’re actually in the spot they’re supposed to be taking place. Nine times out of ten it just feels like they show a skyline of a certain city and you’re just supposed to not notice/care or just accept it.
This has gotten better over the years now that so many shows and films actually film on location in the city or state that it’s taking place.
Justified does a masterful job at this (outside of the obvious California mountains). I have quite a bit of family in the South(I don’t really consider Lexington to be the South, but Harlan definitely would be), so maybe I just notice when they get things right, that I may not notice in shows set in other regions, but Justified captures a ton of things that I’m sure most of the audience never notices which are I had only seen people in the South do until I watched Justified. The tiny mannerisms, what people wear, and very specific pronunciations(or mispronunciations) of words are so well done, it’s impressive every single time I re-watch the show.
I hope more shows continue to put this kind of attention to detail in their writing/acting, even if 90% of the country wouldn’t care or notice it.
I’m pretty mad at Duncan Jones for making the Warcraft movie over that planned Ian Fleming biopic.
True Detective and Justified in January.
House of Cards in February.
Everyone stay away from me.
For a month so loaded with good tv premieres, January is a complete dead zone for movie releases.
People on Twitter have already seen Wolf of Wall Street.
I can’t wait 3 weeks.
