First of all, TWO TOM HARDY’S. I’m not a fan of movies glorifying real life criminals, but hell, The Kray Twins have been done many times before so it’s a moot argument at this point and anyway, it’s DOUBLE TOM HARDY.
This also reminds me of the time Tom joined Twitter randomly and spent hours posting names and hashtagging #legend after it. That was all he posted. Eventually he deleted his Twitter and then he came back again (to promote his wildlife documentary, which I sort of half-watched because I’m a dedicated fan and sort of rage-quit halfway through because I hate people who talk over other people and that was basically what Tom was doing but ANYWAY) and then he deleted again when he realised that he was subjecting himself to online terror. Smart man.
Tom’s around a lot this year, right? Same as last year. I think I did a post on Locke. I also watched The Drop which in all fairness was kind of…uh…not great but I did really like Tom in it (I feel like I say that a lot about his movies but I’m confident that if I ever watched Minotaur, I would hate it and hate Tom in it. As it stands, I’ve only ever watched five minutes of it in Turkish (I have no idea why it was in Turkish either!!) and I wisely just moved on very quickly.)
Tom was also in Child 44 but that bombed and I’m not surprised either. The book was decent enough but it does kind of read like it was written specifically to be turned into a movie where all of the actors are non-Russians speaking in horrible fake-Russian accents. Also the sequel? TERRIBLE. The third book, I couldn’t even get past the beginning. So hopefully they won’t be making any more of those, lol.
Tom is also going to be in Mad Max: Fury Road, a franchise which I’ve seen maybe fifteen minutes of. I don’t really like dystopian settings or post-apocalyptica (or whatever you call it) but just this once, I will put my dislike aside because it’s Tom Hardy.
I was going to include a better picture but the one below is hilarious and contextually appropriate, lol.
