  1. “Thor, you are no longer Thor. She is Thor now and you shall be Snortblat.”: Our Favorite Comments Of The Week

    Thou are hurting his feelings!

    This week, all of the Internet's favorite white dudes were replaced with a more diverse and representative cast of characters. Let's see if they notice! We know you all did, so let's take a look at some of the best stuff you said.

  2. UK Bans Jaguar Ad, Citing Tom Hiddleston’s Devastating Smile Irresponsible Driving

    Should we not tell them about Top Gear?

    Jaguar says that Brits play the best villains, but apparently their latest ad campaign is just a bit too villainous for the actual British population. Driving recklessly? Quoting Shakespeare? This will not stand!

  3. Sympathetic Characters: Gender Bias, Villains, & Orphan Black

    Essay

    [Editor's Note: There are no spoilers for BBC America's Orphan Black in this post, some adult language, and lots of good points.] Recently, my husband and I burned through S1 of Orphan Black, which, as promised by virtually the entire internet, was awesome. But in all the praise I’d seen for it, a line from one review in particular stuck in my mind. The reviewer noted that, although the protagonist, Sarah, is an unlikeable character, her grifter skills make her perfectly suited to unravelling the mystery in which she finds herself. And as this was a positive review, I kept that quote in mind when we started watching, sort of by way of prewarning myself: you maybe won’t like Sarah, but that’s OK. But here’s the thing: I fucking loved Sarah. I mean, I get what the reviewer was trying to say, in that she’s not always a sympathetic character, but that’s not the same as her actually being unlikeable. And the more I watched, the more I found myself thinking: why is this quality, the idea of likeability, considered so important for women, but so optional for men – not just in real life, but in narrative?

  5. Love Eternal for the Only Lovers Left Alive

    Review

    As regular readers are no doubt aware, I tend not to fangirl about things. Sure, I get excited about the odd property and its conversion into piles of cold hard Hollywood cash, but I'm generally not one for jumping up and down and squealing in delight. Nothing against it; it’s just not my style. But imagine my surprise and elation when I first heard about Only Lovers Left Alive, a new Jim Jarmusch art-house ditty about nothing other than a sophisticated set of vampires, starring a host of my favorite contemporary actors, top billed by Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston. Words could not express my anticipation. For months I nibbled on teaser posters and the occasional leaked GIF, judiciously avoiding the trailer until I just couldn’t take it anymore and caved. I was not disappointed.

  6. Will You Watch a 2.5 Minute Car Commercial to Hear Tom Hiddleston Recite Shakespeare?

    i'll just leave this here

    That is the question that Jaguar is asking with its latest installment in its dubiously connected but totally Tumblr ready ad campaign that pairs Great Britain with great villains. Let us know in the comments if their gamble paid off. Previously in Tom Hiddleston

  7. Be Still My Heart: Tom Hiddleston Quotes Shakespeare, Is Delicious

    Shakespeare and Loki? Together? Jaguar knows what nerds like.

    I don't really care about cars, so the whole "Jaguar" part of this new Jaguar ad is fairly irrelevant for me. The car has some stiff competition though---Tom Hiddleston blowing things up, wearing a suit, and reciting Shakespeare like it ain't no thang.

  8. Tumblr Reviews Tom Hiddleston’s The Pirate Fairy: An Affectionate Parody

    Why Tom Hiddleston followed up a string of successful indies and Hollywood blockbusters with a supporting role in the direct-to-DVD Disney movie The Pirate Fairy is a mystery for the ages. Was it the paycheck? The opportunity to sing in a Disney movie? Is he literally just that happy to do any kind of movie whatsoever? Can we expect infomercials next? What we do know is that if Hiddleston's in it, Tumblr's freaking out over it. I say that with affection, not derision. But, like many Tumblr users (no, you cannot know my username), I carry around with me at all times a strong love of self-derision and satire*. To that end, here's the Official The Mary Sue Review of The Pirate Fairy...as written by Tumblr. Or, well, "Tumblr." *In fact, Tumblr loves satire so much that it sometimes takes satirical news stories a little too much to heart.

  10. Tom Hiddleston Is Having the Time of His Life Playing a Pirate In This Direct-to-DVD Disney Movie [VIDEO]

    And All Was Right With the World

    I've no particular interest in seeing The Pirate Fairy—direct-to-DVD Disney movies aren't really my thing, y'know?—but 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage of Tom Hiddleston voicing a young Captain Hook?... Yeah, I might be up for that. Calling it: So many cute little kids are going to develop their first innocent crushes on Hiddleston's character here. They'll grow up. They'll find Tumblr. His reign will never end. (via: Jezebel) Previously in The Pirate Fairy
