Question of the Week: What’s your current cinematic obsession?

ob·ses·sion
əbˈseSHən/

  • the state of being obsessed with someone or something.
  • an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.

Ok this is not just another excuse to talk about Toby Stephens… as if I needed one, ahah. Seriously though, my weekly question is usually inspired by something that’s been on my mind. Well, I think you all know what or specifically who that is 😉

TobyTumblr
My long-lifeless tumblr’s been set ablaze again

Men like Toby ought to come with a warning label similar to those cigarette boxes: Dangerous, highly-addictive content. Proceed with caution. I have a bit of an obsessive streak in me. I don’t drink nor do drugs, seems that my *drug* of choice is British actors 😛

Surely I’m not the only one, I mean tumblr is pretty much filled with obsessive people, ahah. It doesn’t have to be a person, it can be a TV show/movie/game, whatever. I know Sati’s been engrossed with Game of Thrones and Keith with the noir classic Casablanca. It doesn’t happen very often for me, well not THIS intense anyway, so when that happens I sort of relish in it. Fortunately with Toby, he’s covered pretty much every medium, theater, TV, movies and radio, and he’s a delight to watch as well as listen to. It’s funny how a new-found crush/craze adds an extra spring in your step, which helps me cope with this dreadful faux-Spring weather (complete with SNOW people!!).


So fess up folks, what/who are you obsessing about right now? And what started it all?

  1. I don’t think I’m obsessed but lately (last couple of years or months), I’ve been watching a lot of Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, Jennifer Lawrence and Domhnall Gleeson. I love them! They’re my new generation of favorite actors.

    1. I’m usually like that too, I *juggle* Hiddles, Benedict, Armitage, etc. but w/ Toby it seems far more intense than usual. Kind of like what happened w/ Gregory Peck a few years back, it was like lightning, mwahahaha!

  2. Hey, Ruth! You know my obsession – Richard Armitage!! He is my CURRENT obsession, but I admit I’ve had others.People, places, and things. That’s my blog site. And I totally agree with what you said about obsessions, or whatever you call them, adding a spring to your step. I love being “obsessed”! Makes life so much more interesting!! And Toby Stephens, well, he’s a really good place to start. 😀

    1. Hi Marie! As you know I love Richard too, but the crazy thing is now that I’m crushing on Toby, I actually been watching Robin Hood to gawk at Prince John instead of Guy!! It’s always fun to see them both doing a scene together tho, esp that ‘Do you love me Gisborne?’ scene 😉

  3. Ted S.

    Ha ha, you sure love Toby Ruth, maybe his agent or reps will see your posts about him and have him stop by the site and say hello. 🙂

    I can’t say I have any obsession when it comes to actors or any famous people. But I always watch the Bond films, even the bad ones, every month. Well since I don’t currently have my home theater set up, I haven’t watched a Bond flick in a while. I refuse to watch Bond on a small screen. LOL.

    1. Yeah, but can you blame me? Ahah well he’s said he doesn’t read anything online so I doubt he’d have a clue about my wee blog. Seriously tho, if I won the lottery I’d do a movie and hire him, I mean his talents need to be seen. There are far too many lesser actors getting far more work than him, it’s infuriating!

      You always watch Bond films every month? Hey I forgot if you ever bought the Bond box set, if so I’d like to borrow Die Another Day. Yes I know, it’s a horrible movie but I’d watch it just for Toby! 😉

      1. Ted S.

        Oh yeah, I’d always pop in a Bond flick once or even twice a month, I’ve watched Skyfall like 15 times or more already. No I didn’t buy the Bond box set because I already owned most of them before the box set came out, I now have every Bond films except Dr. No. I don’t know why I’m in no hurry to watch that one. It wasn’t a bad but I just never got into it like the other Bond flicks and the only scene I like is the famous bikini scene, ha ha. And yes I do have Die Another Day, even though it’s an atrocious film, I only watch it for the action sequences and it’s one of the nicest BDs transfer that I own. Let me know when you want to burrow it, I’ve never watched the behind the scenes stuff on the disc though. Since it’s such a bad film, I don’t care about the behind the scenes stuff.

        1. Oooh you do have Die Another Day, cool! Well maybe we can meet up next week? Again, I’ll fast forward thru most of it, I really only want to watch Toby being a smarmy Bond baddie. He’s still fun to watch no matter how bad the film, and it’s just hilarious to think he’s supposed to be Korean!!

          1. Ted S.

            Yeah let me know what day and I’ll bring it. I actually didn’t mind the concept of a bad guy switching identity, they actually took elements from Moonraker the novel and incorporated into this film. In the book, Drax went under the knife to make himself look like a different person so he can destroy London. But Die Another Die just botched the cool concept and became a silly cartoonish trash.

            1. Well the thing is, they should’ve did something even if it’s small like a gesture or something that ties in Col Moon to Gustav. I mean fine, we can suspend our disbelief that such a genetic mutation technology exist but there’s a complete disconnect between the two that I blame it on lazy writing. I forgot if Gustav ever spoke Korean at all in the movie? I think they should’ve had him speaking Korean once or twice to Zao or something. I mean, Toby could speak Hindi in a Bollywood movie, surely he could learn to speak Korean for a couple of sentences!

              1. Ted S.

                Oh I agree, the film’s script was just lazy and sloppy and it didn’t help that they hired Lee Tamohari to direct. Apparently he was the one who came up with the ideas of having Bond surfing and the ridiculous wind surfing scene later in the film. Gustuv spoke maybe one line in Korean when he talked to Zao, I think it happened towards the climatic action scenes.

    Hi, Ruth:

    I wouldn’t call it an “obsession”. Though, I have found a promising stream of entertaining series and mini-series from both sides of the pond.

    From the UK, we have an extremely well written and executed tale, The Bletchley Circle . Which focuses on a group of women who helped break codes, chief among them, the Enigma code during WWII. And how they endure during late 1940s, early 1950s Cold War England. While being hamstrung by The Official Secrets Act and silent about their pasts.

    High marks for the ladies in attendance. As diverse as they are equal parts smart, clever and sometimes beguiling. Details are given proper care and attention as they deduce patterns in crime! Rape and murder in the first season. Chemical Warfare testing on unwitting troops and the Black Market in the second.

    ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is doing an admirable job of picking up where The Winter Soldier left off. With Bill Paxton being tailor made as Coulson’s old partner, Training officer for agent Brant and HYDRA agent, Garrett. With a bit more “Whiz Bang” and DethLok getting some well earned mystery. As well as back story next week on Garrett turning Brant to the dark side.

    FX;s Fargo is taking its time, but the plot thickens. With Billy Bob Thornton’s nameless killer and Martin Freeman’s harried Lester. The young woman playing Mollie is definitely the smartest cop in the Bendjemi police department. Showing lots of style and grace. Along with moxie as she connects the dots.

    1. Ted S.

      Jack, I wasn’t that interest in F/X’s Fargo but after watching the first episode, I’m hooked. Now I can’t wait till Tuesday for the new episode, ha ha. It’s totally different plot from the film version but somehow they kept the same style and I love it!

      1. jackdeth72

        Hi, Ted:

        The object of the FX Fargo project was to keep the flavor and atmosphere. Along with quirky characters who had nothing to do with the Coen brothers’ original. In this they excel!

        The woman playing Mollie used to work in IT, comedy and voice overs. Her first real shot in front of cameras in Fargo shows huge potential! Also like Adam Goldberg fella and his silent partner.

    2. Hi Kevin! Well you are far too wise to be obsessing on something like me, ahah. Oh The Bletchley Circle sounds similar to an older BBC series Cambridge Spies which centers on a group of students who’s spying for the KGB during the Cold War, but the series is more about the characters’ lives not so much the spying activities.

      I’ve sort of given up on Agents of SHIELD as it got kind of boring after about 4 episodes, but I might pick it up again. Nice to see it tying nicely w/ The Winter Soldier!

      I saw one episode of Fargo, very amusing to see Freeman w/ a Minnesotan accent, ahah.

      1. jackdeth72

        Hi, Ruth:

        Cambridge Spies focused nicely on Kim Philby and the slow infiltration of British Intelligence and Foreign Offices. And The Bletchley Circle is equally character driven and much more refreshingly from the women’s point of view. It’s on PBS Sunday nights (10pm, est). And well worth a look.

        Would also add BBC/America’s Orphan Black . For its female lead, Tatiana Maslany playing three different, yet distinct characters. Cloned at a nursery decades ago and coming together in the present day. Exceptional stuff!

        1. Oh you have seen Cambridge Spies then? Toby played Kim Philby and he’s terrific. I actually ordered the dvd, hope to watch ’em all next week.

          I love the idea of The Bletchley Circle, that’s cool that it’s on PBS, thanks for letting me know about that.

          I did see a bit of Orphan Black, not as interested in that one I’m afraid.

      1. Ha..ha.. SHIELD-less! Too funny Michael. Well I might pick up that show again as my hubby n I used to watch that before we got bored w/ it. Wish they had a more capable actor as agent Ward. I mean he’s gorgeous to look at but oh so boring!

        1. Ward’s gotten a bit more interesting (next show supposed to explain him more), but he’s staid compared to the likes of Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, and now John Garrett (Bill Paxton).

          1. Wow Bill Paxton’s now joined the show? Cool! I like him, he’s been off the radar of sort lately. And yeah I agree the women seems to fare better in Whedon’s series, I quite like that Chloe character in Agents of SHIELD.

    3. Agents of Shield has certainly been getting better,cause its start was shaky to say the least. I felt like it was languishing for a while,but the last few episodes it has really picked up

      1. jackdeth72

        Hi, Julian:

        The first episodes were a bit clunky. With a lot to introduce and get a feel for withing a 48 minute story window. Multiple agents, locations, heroes and villains took up than first thought. Especially is one character is a VTOL capable mating of a Boeing 767 and a Lockheed C-5 heavy lift cargo plane.

        Now “the Bus” is becoming as familiar as Whedon’s Firefly class transport, ‘Serenity’. It’s also cool to see “Lola” hover car brought to life from the old 1960s Jack Kirby comics.

  5. Television-wise, I’m pretty excited about Arrow. Some of season one was a bit powder-puff, but season two has taken things up a notch. Game of Thrones? I’m in.

    In the world of cinema, I’m all over absolutely anything the Coen brothers do. Very eager to see what Gareth Evans does with Godzilla this summer, and I’ve become a big fan of Dane DaHaan recently. And, of course, Jennifer Lawrence.

    None of those are quintessential “obsessions”, but I reckon I’ve got one certain fascination. Although it might sound quite quaint, I’d say, most of all, I’m obsessed with cinema and writing about films. So much so that it occasionally upends exam study plans…

    Adam.

    1. Hi Adam, if you like Arrow then you must see The Machine which stars Caity Lotz. That’s the show that got me hooked on Toby.

      I’m not a huge fan of the Coens myself but I know they have a huge fan base. I’m curious about Godzilla as well, esp since I like Aaron Johnson, another Brit crush on mine.

      Hey, obsessing about cinema is why I had this blog in the first place 😉

        1. Yes do so! Cinema is definitely infectious, especially when you’ve got such great actors. Hail the underrated ones, they’re far more interesting than the movie stars!

    1. What?? Then you probably should watch clips of Toby, who knows you might get as obsessed as me now, especially him as Rochester in Jane Eyre 😉

      1. I think my lack of inspiration is due to a chest cold. I feel like a turnip. What I’ve been watching lately is baseball! Go Nationals.
        The movies I’ve seen are depressing ones. I think I need a cluster of comedies to pull me out of my slump.;)

        1. Hey, just search for the BBC show Vexed on youtube. It’s sooo hilarious, similar to Moonlighting w/ Bruce Willis where the two very-different people are paired up together. It’s really a lot of fun and guaranteed to lighten up your mood 😉

    1. Very interesting Drew! Now, what if Tye and Emma were to star in a Disney movie? That’d be fun for you wouldn’t it? I’m curious as to what extent is your *obsession* with those three 😉

  6. My Boardwalk Empire obsession is kind of seasonal when the show is on but I’m already getting excited for the final season! I’m crazing on Trip To Italy at the moment along with Game Of Thrones.

    1. Hey, my colleague just told me he’s started watching Boardwalk Empire. I wish I had time to watch more series, that sounds like something I’d enjoy. I actually listened to Michael Shannon’s interview on NPR about his character on that show.

      Oh is Trip To Italy the British film w/ Steve Coogan? I missed that on the local film fest, but I wanted to see The Trip first. Oh you’re on GoT too? I’m still waiting on someone who watches Black Sails so we can chat about Captain Flint 😉

      1. You should definitely watch Boardwalk if you get chance. It has everything great sets, performances, music, gripping plots! It’s just brilliant!

        Yeah Trip to Italy is Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. It’s very funny especially their Dark Knight Rises impressions. It would be good if you could see The Trip first though which is also very funny!

        I haven’t read Game Of Thrones but I’m hooked on this season. I’ve heard a bit about Black Sails too but haven’t started it yet. Might give it a watch in the next few weeks though 🙂

        1. Yeah I think I will try to get to BE at some point, you’ve definitely sold me on it 🙂

          Oh cool, I think The Trip is on Netflix streaming, I should get on that soon. I know I’ll probably love GoT tho I’m not fond of all the violence and sex, same w/ Black Sails, I probably fast forward a lot of that stuff. If only they could make these shows without ’em but seems that everything on cable is like that nowadays.

  7. I’d have to second Sati’s obsession with Game of Thrones. That’s just a wonderful series. Although, I have been keeping in line with my age old obsession with DeNiro. I’ve revisited a couple of his older movies (and more still to revisit) and I’ve also got a few new ones under my belt with yet more to come on that front too.

    1. You’re lucky that you have tons of people to talk to about that show. I feel so lonely in my obsession for Toby as most people either have no idea who he is or don’t share my erm, passion 😉

      You are very loyal to DeNiro which is cool. I seem so fickle compared to you, ahah. But I think my crushing on Toby might not be temporary, he’s so immensely talented that I hope to enjoy his work for years to come.

      1. Haha! Don’t worry Ruth. If people don’t know who Toby is yet, they soon will, I’m sure. 🙂

        As for DeNiro, I reckon I’ll go to my death bed considering him the greatest and always my favourite. He has been since I was about 13/14 years old.

        1. Well it’s a double-edged sword really. On one hand I want EVERYONE to know and love Toby but then if an actor becomes so famous and overexposed, I lost interest. I feel that way about Fassbender, I was a big fan before he suddenly become so well-known, or GB too in a way tho I mostly lost interest as he constantly pick bad roles.

          Hey, that is an actor worthy of your lifetime adulation, I mean DeNiro is a living legend!

  8. It’s bizarre, but I don’t think I have anything at the moment. Sure I enjoyed House of Cards, but I’m no where near obsessing over it. Same with Game of Thrones, but I wouldn’t call it obsession. Just a lot of … passion, ha! How uninspiring!

    1. Wow, nothing at all Jaina? That is bizarre! I think I’ve always been preoccupied w/ something/someone, though this one w/ Toby feels more erm, severe than usual.

        1. Yes, don’t you notice? 😉 I mean everything I don’t usually find appealing seems so attractive when Toby’s involved. That’s a sign of an affliction, no?

          Well I guess that’s good then, it really take a lot out of you when you’re crushing on someone, at least that’s that way w/ me.

            1. Ahah yes even THAT! I just asked my pal Ted I’d borrow his Bluray just so I can gawk at Toby’s cut-glass cheekbones as Gustav Graves 😛

                1. Ahah, well initially I thought no way would I rewatch that abominable thing masquerading as a Bond movie!! But I still don’t mind watching Toby utter even the most preposterous lines. I think even he himself was appalled but hey, a young actor’s gotta work and he thought it could be his big break. In any case, yeah I told you it’s serious 😀

  9. Right now, I have too many. Aside from my usual obsessions towards Jena Malone & Scarlett Johansson who both are my favorite actresses. I guess I’m obsessed with The Raid films plus the films of Francois Ozon, Carlos Reygadas, Jean Vigo, and Michael Cimino as they’re current Auteurs subjects. I tend to live in my own head a lot.

    1. I always wondered why Jena Malone isn’t more famous, she’s beautiful and talented. Are you referring to The Raid movie that’s set in Indonesia?

      As for “I tend to live in my own head a lot” well I’m that way too it seems.

    1. Hi Abbi! Well he’s dreamy isn’t he? He also has voice to die for! But I feel that he’s getting a bit too famous to hold my interest. Don’t ask me why, I’m weird that way, ahah.

  10. I’m really obsessed with short films at the moment! It started when I found a bunch of avant garde shorts on Youtube, and then it spiralled out of control. Oh and Game of Thrones, but that’s an obsession that I’ve been dealing with for years!

    1. Hi Anna, oh short films? That’s interesting but a lot of short films are awesome! Ahah well GoT seems to be a lot of ppl’s obsession these days, but hey the nice thing is you have a lot of friends to share it with.

  11. I’ve been really digging modern foreign films lately. I started with a couple of films by Johnnie To (including last year’s incredible Drug War), and in the last week I caught up with Incendies and 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days. The latter two blew me away. I have the A Prophet DVD sitting at home as well. Can’t wait to get to that.

    1. There are tons of great foreign films aren’t they? I caught a few during the film fest, too. Oh A Prophet seems intense but I’ve heard great things about it.

    2. Ted S.

      Please see A Prophet Eric, it’s a great thriller. And unfortunately Hollywood is remaking it so see the original before it gets Hollywoodnized the general audiences.

  12. Game of Thrones and Stephen Dillane. And when HBO tears the focus away from brothel and dragons for approx. 3 minutes an episode…I’m having good Sunday 😛

    1. That’s great that you’re in love with an older man. I don’t know how old Dillane is but I’m sure he’s much older than you, right? I’ve always loved guys who’re a bit older than me, Toby’s 6 yrs older and Timothy is like 30+ years older than me, ahah.

      1. He’s 58 🙂 He does look pretty much like he did 10 years ago, though, which is a lucky break given how his character on GoT is 35. I don’t really care about person’s age, never did. It’s not something one has control over and it’s not something that should matter that much (within legal limits obviously).

        1. I completely agree!! I think attraction defies age as for me it’s not just about a handsome face and a hot bod. There are surely lots of other better looking actors in GoT than Dillane, but yet you’re still attracted to him the most. Just like in Black Sails Toby’s the oldest actor surrounded by ripped young actors but they all seem so boring to me compared to him. It doesn’t mean I don’t like any young actors tho, I find Aaron Johnson immensely sexy and he’s like 15 yrs younger than me! 😉

          1. That’s the thing – I do consider him best looking by my standards, the conventional standards are so boring and plain. There is charisma to him, that most other actors don’t have. His eyes just have such depth in them and his voice…well that’s amazing too 🙂 He plays a character that is said to be uncharismatic but the way he just carries himself has more charisma than any beautiful speeches other characters make. There’s also such sadness to his character and ambiguity – much like with my favorite female character in GoT, Catelyn, they have weaknesses and doubts but they do the right thing in spite of that. That’s very admirable in more important way than just pure heroism and grand redemption arc the story has for many fan favorites.

            1. “….the conventional standards are so boring and plain” That’s exactly it! I don’t think ppl who see Toby would see him as drop dead gorgeous (I mean compared to say, Richard Armitage). He’s actually shorter than most guys I’m crushing on (under 6 feet) and I’ve never been attracted to a red-head before, but like you said, it’s the charisma, the expressive eyes, etc.

              Man now I’m curious to see more of Dillane’s work. I’ve recognized him in a few things and I totally see what you are saying. I think an actor that can make ANY character magnetic regardless of how it’s written, whether he’s supposed to be unlikable or evil, is a sign that he’s got charisma.

              Sounds like his character is complex, meaning he can’t be pigeonholed into hero or villain, which I think is the best character. I love flawed characters as their journey is more interesting to follow.

              1. You should see The Hours! His performance there is so beautiful – he plays my favorite movie husband. If I had a husband like that I wouldn’t need anything else, not even GoT 🙂

                1. Oh he’s in The Hours? Ahah, fave movie husband eh? He..he.. well I hope one day you’d find a husband like him, tho speaking from experience I think no matter how great one’s hubby is, I think I’d still be crushing on actors 😀

  13. Hey Ruthie. I didn’t know you were obsessed with Toby Stephens. (Shows how much I neglect your site.) I’ve always associated him with this high profile ( at the time) Bollywood movie he did called “Mangal Pandey: The Rising”. Glad to see him back on TV again.

    My current obsession is the wrapping up of the current TV Season. 😛

    1. Well it’s just the last couple of weeks that this feverish mania begun for me after being a casual fan for some time. I’ve been watching clips of Mangal Pandey, I LOVE his character in it and the story about Indian revolution is quite compelling, but that movie is tough to find here.

      I wish I had more time for TV these days but I’m hoping to catch Black Sails as soon as it’s out on iTunes, well naturally 😉

    1. I find myself rewatching episodes of Vexed too, starring Toby of course, so I totally understand how that feels if you like a show so much you want to rewatch it over and over again.

  14. I love this question, Ruth, and actually mulled it over to see if I could come up with a good answer, but I sadly still got nothing. I certainly go through certain times of certain obsessions, but right now, none that are too pressing, really. Maybe musicals, perhaps? I dunno, if I can think of something good, I’ll return. 😉

    1. Hey Chris! I guess you should consider yourself lucky then, it’s actually quite exhausting sometimes when you’re obsessing over something, ahah. Do come back when you can think of something, interesting that you answered musicals… as in film musicals or theater?

      1. Film musicals. Been watching them more lately, and I’ve noticed all my recent DVD purchases (on the rare occasion I actually buy DVD) have been musicals. Not sure if I’d call it an obsession just yet, tho. 😛

  15. Can I be obsessed over the whole Summer movie season? What will be a hit? What will be a flop? Predicting the Top 10 hits. I love it all. Godzilla, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy and Maleficent have my curiosity piqued.

    1. Hey you can obsess over whatever you want Mark 😀 I’m excited for a couple of movies this Summer but I’m not as feverishly excited as last year when Man of Steel came out, tho later I wasn’t as fond of the movie. Are you not excited for X-Men: Days of Future Past? I can’t wait for that one!

        1. Tough to beat Cillian’s gorgeous eyes but i think Toby has a lot of other qualities 😉 I love his wavy hair n cut-glass cheekbones!

  16. Haven’t been really obsessing over much movie related lately. It’s more tech related for about the last week. Don’t know if you read the news about the Oneplus One phone that will be released in June, but that is one I have been reading about a lot the last week. It looks awesome with amazing specs for just 299 euros. Waiting for the reviews, but it might be my next phone. Another thing is the Moto 360 smartwatch, which really looks good.

    Just came up with one movie related things: The Raid 2. It won’t be out here for a couple of months so I’ve been searching if it would be available in countries near me (except UK), so I could drive there to see it. Unfortunately it isn’t playing anywhere yet.

    1. Ahah, I don’t think I’ve ever obsessed over a piece of tech before, you sound like my hubby! 😀

      Oh you love The Raid eh? That’s cool that an Indo movie has become such a big hit internationally. I still haven’t seen even the first one as it’s too violent for me. It’s cool that it was shot in my hometown tho.

      1. Men and their tech toys 😉

        It is very violent indeed but it’s such an amazing film that I jest can’t wait for the second one!

  17. Another Game of Thrones watcher here. And i’ve been anxious to see Nyongo in more roles,so i guess that might count here.

    Oh also this post inspired me to see if Deborah has any new stuff coming out,which lead me to a trailer for a flick she has coming out. From what i saw it seems like she is going to have a prominent role,so obviously this film is now top priority for me 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv5B55b243M

    1. I love Nyong’O too, tho I feel that her rise to fame seems awfully quick. I hope she doesn’t get burned out and that she uses the opportunity well.

      Glad to see you’re still loyal to Deborah 😉

  18. You really hit on it with me my friend! Casablanca is such a brilliant movie. I also have a permanent obsession with Bogart movies in general. I also sometime obsess over French cinema. A while back I did a week long look at French cinema similar to this week’s Casablanca thing. It was fun even though practically no one checked it out! LOL

    1. Hey Keith! I’d love to see you feature other Bogart’s films. I feel like I should watch more of his films as he’s my late dad’s favorite.

        1. Sounds good to me! Silly me but I don’t have any of Bogart films in my Blindspot, ah well but I can still try to catch up on ’em, esp the ones w/ his longtime wife Lauren Bacall.

  19. No real obsession at the moment but I go through my phases. I like to do mini festivals occasionally, be it Marvel movies, Nolan, kitchen sink drama etc. Works for me!

  20. My obsessions have really fallen to the wayside. All of my favorite shows are ending or have ended – The Walking Dead, Bates Motel, Once Upon A Time, House of Cards. If I gave Netflix I proper go, I’m sure I’d be obsessed with a show on there. Doctor Who is probably the closest thing that I have to obsess about, but I’m stuck on the David Tennant years. 😛

    1. Just saw that this was a cinematic obsession – definitely The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent – anything with Shailene Woodley. Sorry for the double comment! 🙂

    2. Hey it can be any kind obsession really, doesnt hv to be movies only. Maybe u shouls give Black Sails a watch? Toby is so sexy as Capt Flint 😉 Speaking of Dr Who I might meet Matt Smith this wknd at Mpls Comic con. I do like David Tennant a lot too, wish he’s coming as well.

      Woodley ia adorable isnt she? I’m looking fwd to her new film too.

      1. I’ll definitely try to give Black Sails a watch – I need something new. Have a great time at the convention and meeting Matt Smith (if you get the chance!). I think I would die if I saw him, and I know I would if I saw Tennant in person. 😛

        1. I’ve heard great things about Black Sails, esp Toby as Cap Flint. Let me know after u see it Katy. Ahah well I think I’d be geeking out if I see Tennant too!

  21. I suppose I’m obsessed with awarding movies, since I’ve been doing my newly-named CinSpec Awards ballots weekly for over a year. 😀 I’m always thinking about the major films I need to see before posting them. At this point, I can’t wait to finish them!

      1. Teehee yeah I do lol! I know right?! It’s madness! Just to have a little of that talent it\s mindblowing, but that much? LOVE IT!

  22. Shameless US, oh my f–king God!!!!! It’s been some time since I was so obsessed with a TV show– or anything for that matter. Such an epic show. 😀 But yes, British actors are awesome too — just not enough to be that addictive for me haha.

    1. Ahah I just read your post about Shameless! I can totally relate as I feel that way about Toby right now. You’re not addicted to British actors eh? Well consider yourself lucky!! 😉

  23. I’d say I’m actually more obsessed with TV at the moment to be honest. I’ve worked my way through Breaking Bad, House of Cards, True Detective, The Walking Dead, and I’m currently up to date with Game of Thrones and now I’m going through Homeland as well, which is excellent!
