Lee Pace, 10 years later: hey
Me: GOOD NEWS EVERYONE I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE MOVIE AND IT INVOLVES ALIENS INVADING IN AFRICA.
(*I have since learned that District 9 is not exactly like this. I just always assumed it was.)
Because oh my GOD this is just. like. everything I want ever in a Rugged Action Hero movie, including a side of my favorite topes like waking up in a prison cell in a wild and lawless refugee zone, and lady-protecting (of a lady who is a badass in her own right, capable of getting the upper hand on an attempted rapist and machine gunning him to death)*. This guy has hit like nine home runs so far in the Roles I Want All My Fave Actors To Play series -- I need him to slap on a cowboy hat and maybe don a doctor's coat and then he will have done basically everything. Also I could use a solid m/m ship in light of learning he's not straight, but we all know how picky I am about that (NO TWO MEN HAVE EVER BEEN GOOD ENOUGH SINCE KLAINE, etc.), so I am more than happy to keep picking up het kissing scenes while I wait.
*AND ALSO. The REACTION I had to them locking eyes in the underground danger bunker! Like the shipping radar was already fired up and happy because DANGER + HUGGING, and then all of a sudden it got sparky and I got very "WELL THEN."
Honestly there are like six actors in the world I would willingly watch be THIS grimy and filthy for an entire movie. Good work.
