Title: Excalibur
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Characters/Pairings: Arthur Pendragon (with Excalibur)
Content Notes: This one's a pencil sketch. My choice of object was inspired by this gif set on Tumblr. I had to make up certain parts of the sword for both perspective drawings, and found this YouTube vid really helpful as a starting point: How to draw a sword in perspective.

— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Today's question: Do you post any of your writing anonymously? (Goodness knows I do.)

Thor: Ragnarok     HD720p 94MB   HD1080p 171MB
Comic-Con trailer for this psychedelic, Australian-Kiwi action comedy. This time Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok - the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization - the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger - the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)! Many of the cast members return, additions are Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge and Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster. Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows).
Pleased to spot that Waititi cast Rachel House from his previous movie.

Justice League     HD720p 161MB   HD1080p 294MB
Four minute Comic-Con trailer for DC Comics' desperate attempt to catch-up with Marvel's Avengers, directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, 300, Sucker Punch). Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), to face an even greater enemy. Together, the two work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes - Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) - it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
J.K. Simmons, Amy Adams, Connie Nielsen, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Joe Morton, Billy Crudup, Ciarán Hinds, Kiersey Clemons, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg and Henry Cavill are listed as cast member, if the running time permits.

Wonderstruck     HD720p 16MB
First (almost) music-only trailer for the latest movie directed by Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven, Carol, Velvet Goldmine), based on the novel from Brian Selznick (Hugo). Ben and Rose are children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress (Julianne Moore) whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry. Michelle Williams has a small role.
Was not as well received at Cannes as Haynes' previous movies.

Proud Mary     HD720p 75MB
Action movie about a hit woman (Taraji P. Henson) working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad. Billy Brown, Danny Glover, Neal McDonough and Xander Berkeley are also part of the cast. Directed by Babak Najafi (London Has Fallen, Easy Money II).
It's starting to get crowded in the cool hitman genre.

Goon: Last of the Enforcer     HD720p 79MB
Trailer from Canada for the sequel. It's a new day for the Halifax Highlanders. A pro lockout has reunited old teammates and brought a crew of new players to the bench; notably missing from the line-up, however, is everyone’s favourite enforcer and heart of the team, Doug “The Thug” Glatt (Sean William Scott). Sidelined after one too many hits and now married with a baby on the way, he's hanging up his skates and settling into life as an insurance salesman. But when his nemesis Anders Cain (Wyatt Russell) is made captain of the Highlanders and new ownership threatens to tear his team apart, Doug is compelled back into action. Jay Baruchel, Elisha Cuthbert, Alison Pill, Marc-André Grondin, Kim Coates, Callum Keith Rennie, T.J. Miller and Liev Schreiber are also part of the cast. Baruchel also directs.
Reviews from Canada aren't too kind. It's apparently also even more brutal than the first one.

Summer Pictures, 2017

I know, I know, summer still has a bit of life on in it yet. But I thought y'all might enjoy a few pictures of how my summer is going! It's pretty busy here and I haven't been able to really leave the city, save for some weekend day trips, however, it's still been fun! (And also a reminder of this country's nightmarish history.)

Anyway, play on!

Sorry for the length ... )

Anyway, that's my summer so far. Hope you enjoyed this picspam! Have a good night!

And what's your plan of attack for this final week of the month?
