Richard Armitage:Into The Storm Reviews + Mustang Yearnings + Gary,Into The Storm + John Proctor in The Crucible + Thorin in The Hobbit:Battle of the 5 Armies

Above and below - Gary Fuller, Into The Storm. An exciting thrill ride of a film!
Filming of  Into The Storm
ah shucks, mam...
Maybe someday, in the distant future, the special effects technology in "Into the Storm" will look fake and make audiences snicker. But today, it's hard to imagine any movie ever topping this one's depiction of killer tornadoes laying waste to the Midwest.Short of sweeping the entire audience up into a holographic tornado, while high winds blow the other spectators around, nothing will lay a glove on "Into the Storm" as the ultimate weather disaster extravaganza.Perhaps the best measure of the story's effectiveness is that, given the choice between heightened spectacle and human life, the audience's emotional impulse is always toward human life. Except in the case of the cameraman who gets sucked into the gasoline vortex - that's just too good to resist - whenever someone is holding on for dear life, we hope they maintain their grip. We believe just enough to make "Into the Storm" more riveting.
Hold on Gary...
Meanwhile on other side of pond, Proctor's Crucible continues to sell out..

Hi RiCrAr,

That tie Richard is wearing in the piccy looks like my old school tie - not been rummaging through my drawers I hope Richard (if only!!!!!)

Seriously though, looking forward to the release of Into the Storm over here in England, although it looks like we will be getting a taste of extreme weather over here in blighty too, as the remnants of Hurrican Bertha is likely to hit our shores at the weekend. Maybe Bertha's a Richard Armitage fan and plans to sweep him off his feet? I guess we can expect a bit more than a few leaves blowing around, as Richard recently described the British weather, maybe he shouldn't have tempted fate. Who fancies hunkering (with the hunk) until the storm has passed over!!!!Me, me, me!

"a few leaves blowing around" Lol I missed that remark. Richard did struggle through the aftermath of hurricane Sandy with the rest of us on the MidAtlantic seaboard. NYC and this area were without power for 48hrs, which feels more like 48months when you're living in almost total darkness and eating only the cold food in your refrig before it becomes tainted.

Reminds me of men and womens polarized attitudes toward being physically ill. Most of them become bedridden, helpless when they catch the flu, while the average female who has given birth considers tolerable anything less than excruciating pain;)

Hunkering down with our fav hunk wld definitely assuage any type of pain. Don't get blown away by Bertha! ;D
