There is no bitch like Patrick Bateman. Before American Psycho was released to cinemas, the only psychopath that people knew in entertainment or popular culture was Hannibal Lecter, but while Hannibal’s brilliance was on display and through another character’s eyes, Patrick showed the cutthroat (almost literally) character as handsome on the outside and despicable on the inside. It’s spawned skincare and a damn musical.
As this isn’t a psychology blog, we’re going to deter away from the ‘inside’ part and talk about the handsome, yuppie outside.
Come on, you gotta appreciate that segway.
The Morning Routine scene is probably the most well known, and the 80s “all excess, all consumerism” banner on full display, as you’ll very much see below, so I thought it would be fun to look at that routine that – and I’m not making this up – many men have emulated over the years. It’s movies, it’s beauty, it’s fun. Bloody fun!
Tomorrow at 8am, along with many others, I will see Avengers: Endgame. This is the end and my head has been on constant Charlie Day, Always Sunny Conspiracy mode for the past year but hooo boy has it been amped up in the last few days.
I thought it’s best time to
rant oh god I don’t want to see it anymore this has been part of my life for ten years and can’t everyone be happy just god be happy talk about some theories I have and who I think might live or, ugh, die in this last Avengers movie.
Even though I saw those first leaked set pictures from a while ago, any theories pertaining to it will be down the very bottom in white text you must highlight to see [like this! Hi!]. Other than theories pertaining to that, this post won’t have any spoilers; this is just my ramblings from what I know from the comics and have been and what have stuck out to me from previous movies, like I did on this post.
Some mood music before we begin-
Venom came out on Thursday and I have been so excited to see it. I love Venom in cartoons and the comics, so I thought I’d talk about the movie, what I liked, some things I didn’t really like so much, but mostly pointing to the fact I love Eddie and Venom together.
(Spoilers will be white text you can highlight if you want to see!)
Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped this week and if you think I stayed up late to watch it premiere on YouTube you are absolutely right because that’s what I did. I love the Avengers, the actors portraying them, and I respect the Russo brothers ever since they directed possibly one of my favourite movies of all time, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Kevin Feige is somehow not insane from the amount of stuff he does. I collect the toys, I went to the Marvel Exhibit when it was here and when I have time, I chill out and read some comics. This is what I love, some people don’t get it, but that’s fine because while I’m the most grumpy, possibly cynical person you might meet, it fills me with excitement and joy.
So getting over a trailer might sound ridiculous, but it really isn’t any different from a Star Wars fan getting excited about the next episode, your country making it into the World Cup or a Selena Quintanilla fan happy that MAC paid tribute to the late singer with a collection dedicated to her.
But I have questions. I’m excited, I’m full of dread, I’m curious and I have questions.. and some theories to some questions out there.
I want to preface this by saying that these questions are just the-day-afterwards freak out questions that popped into my brain and some of the links in the questions and theories are up for debate as it’s Fort Knox when it comes to info. Also, I haven’t read all of the comics so there might be a lot I’ve missed.
