It’s acted to absolute perfection by Dan Stevens as the vet-cum-villain. He’s the rising star I teased at the start, and he’s a knockout. He’ll be familiar to fans of “Downton Abbey,” in which he played Matthew Crawley. Here he cuts a darker figure, by turns sexy and scary. He’s in almost every scene. He carries the movie, start to finish. “The Guest” rises and falls on your interest in his face as the camera creeps in for close-up after close-up, looking for storm clouds in his piercing blue eyes, for a serpent in his sly smile. And he meets it with a direct gaze and preternatural self-assurance.
There’s a paragraph in the article that says Adam Wingard didn’t put as much attention to casting the host family than he did Dan and I respectfully disagree because Maika and Brendan were amazing and played off Dan really well
I am beyond tired and frankly overwhelmed
I’m working on five different stories for five different things, three of which are school requirements (of which one is due this Sunday). I can’t blame anyone else but myself. I shouldn’t have pitched a story to a news site that was half-formed and barely reported and I shouldn’t have overestimated my ability to juggle my last semester with a full time internship
On top of that I’m applying to two very competitive internships/fellowships soon. One is a three month internship but will almost guarantee me a job in one of the largest business news organizations in the world and the other is a year long fellowship that will also practically guarantee me a job in one of the biggest wire services in the planet
I’m not the best at time management. And I get cranky when I’m tired
"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"
"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"
"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"
"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."
"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"
With Brown gone that leaves only around half of the original regulars left.
