Pilgrimage…………amazing

I had the opportunity to see the film Pilgrimage at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City yesterday, my daughter tagged along…..I must say, after seeing the trailer, (something I rarely do as I like to go in “cold” to a film I am looking forward to seeing), I was thrilled with the entire experience…

First, the film was not what I expected for a “Historical fiction” set in 1290AD, it was so very  much better….Albeit a bit dark, very violent (as were the times) with torture scenes that made me cringe, I very much loved this film…It was well written, beautifully filmed, had exceptional acting and an amazing soundtrack to boot..

Tom Holland was very good in his role as the youngest Monk on this journey..Richard Armitage was incredibly sinister, but yet again made you “feel for him” despite the fact he was……well, no spoilers (and may I add twas nice to see him in armour and handling a sword again)..He never disappoints in any character he takes on, and he didn’t here as well, just amazing..

Jon Bernthal, with nay but one word in the entire film, conveyed through his facial expression, eyes and body language what the character was feeling every step of the way…Very well done by this actor whom I’ve followed since Walking Dead…..

We had a treat after the viewing, a Q and A with some of the cast, the writer and the director of the film, Tom Holland and Richard Armitage were not present..I’d no idea that was to happen, they answered questions asked by the audience for about 10 minutes….They did hang around after out in the foyer for pictures and the chit chat, which was really sweet…

All in all, without giving away any spoilers, this film was dark, intense, gorey in parts, violent, but all so well done..I cringed at times, was awestruck by scenery and soundtrack, shocked and saddened….

Pilgrimage is definitely a must see film for Armitage fans, this man, this actor never ceases to amaze me in any venue I am blessed to see him in, television, stage, or big screen…..You may be surprised at what you see, but you, if you are like me, will love him for it and enjoy watching him do what he does best..Oh, I almost forgot, my daughter loved the film as well, she was very impressed….

Pilgrimage will be released to theaters on August 11, 2017, and yes, I will go see it again and pre-order the DVD as soon as I can……

So, about this Oceans Eight thing…..

First off, anytime Mr. Armitage is on the screen or stage, I’ll plant myself in a seat to watch, sometimes this happens several times, as was with The Hobbit…..I was never a big fan of the “Oceans” movies with the men folk, but this is different and although I am not a huge fan of all female leads in this roundup, there some beautiful dogs and of course there’s Mr. Armitage, so a ticket I will buy..Hopefully the film will be good and his role a bit more than just a cameo..And yes I will buy the DVD when available and fast forward to his part, yes I do that if the film itself is lagging………………..sorry to say..

That being said, I am still hoping and praying to see some of the completed projects that are somewhere in limbo, ie., Urban Grimshaw, Brain on fire  (yes I know Netflix picked it up), Pilgrimage, Sleepwalker and I still have my fingers and toes crossed that he lands the role of Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts franchise….Apparently he is still being considered along with, some say the favorite, Jared Harris, son of Richard Harris, although Jared is 20 years older than the character….Guess we shall see….I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed anyway for that one.

Then there is “I could be on the stage sometime this year” thingy he threw out there in an interview, guess we may hear more at some point, but I’m guessing that one will be in England, at least that what the current buzz is….Again in a waiting pattern we fans are ….

Sometimes its hard being a fan of this man, we find ourselves in droughts for so long, a picture sends everyone into a tizzy, and god forbid there be a selfie or a tweet that can sometimes cause twitter to stop twittering…

So until then, the pictures, interviews, tweets and selfies will keep us going until the next project becomes available that will get our butts in a theater seat to watch our guy on the big screen…Until then, enjoy…..

“I’m gonna be back on stage next year, possibly.” #RichardArmitage

Back on stage eh?

Armitage Agonistes

At the very end – some talk about Ocean’s 8, and then . . .

Damn – can he just hint at which city, so I can start a travel fund?

Thanks again to @mooseturnds, who has found all these interviews. nd they seem to just keep coming. Big push for BS on I-Tunes. Also interesting that he’s the only cast member promoting it right now.
