Snowpiercer was a beautiful movie. It really captured humanity for good and ill throughout and summed it up nicely in the end with my boy Ed Harris. The population control issue gave a real cold reasoning to everything despite how cruel it was. The reveal that these ppl fighting back were just a bunch of ******* cannibals sick of their treatment really capped it off. I was disgusted in everyone by then. The story really mirrored civilization today or really any period imo. Plus I'm thinking they're about to bring the pedophile angle with him abducting kids but to just literally make them manual cogs in the machine was just so sick
The stupid decision to blow open the door (even if the ice age was over and ppl could survive outside now) which resulted in the train wreck was the perfect ending. Of course we humans would make that choice after being faced with the truth and all that hopelessness. That Wilford didn't even give a **** in the end just kept hammering home that message. Then with only 2 survivors shown (maybe more survived the wreck) it kinda just gave that false hope for humanity's next step in the world.
The fight scenes and performances by Evans, Hurt, Spencer, Harris, Bell, Swinton, and Kang-Ho were all great and really drove the plot.
That Penny Dreadful finale was great. Got me really thinking about what will happen next season. Splitting some of these ppl up will make it interesting for when they all reunite. At this point I think it's time everybody knows Ethan is a werewolf and most especially that Frankenstein has been creating monster immortals.
The scene with Lily and Dorian had me
Leaking all that blood while dancing. Continuing to mock Frankenstein
Him being lost and puzzled.
Would've liked to see Clear leave with Vanessa. If only they knew more about one another. This fool though leaves off to the arctic like anybody else could've went with him. Son on a ship by himself
The way he killed the couple was well deserved. I don't think he should've spared the blind girl. She's rotten to the core.
The showdown was easily the best part of the finale. Makes sense it ended midway through and looking at the few difference scenes it seems they all happened simultaneously in a few minutes. Otherwise I can't make sense of the fat guy being yoked up for so long while Frankenstein and Malcolm were being tortured and Vanessa having that lengthy discussion and battle.
They did a great depiction of Lucifer through dialog with his offer to Vanessa. That's what he does, offer you what you think you want for your soul. The whole daydream was on point and tempting. Vanessa rebuking it only made sense.
Ethan giving himself up in the end was some weak **** though.

Is that show any good?
And man where did she go wrong in her career.. Why wasn't she in the dark knight?
The show is great. Check out the 2 seasons before the 3rd next week.
I think during that time she was still with Tom and the church didn't want her to do the movie or maybe she just didn't want to. I don't think she was ever going to skyrocket with her career but looking at her library work you'd expect more work in general whether it's tv or film. So while I don't think she'd be A-list she should at least be a bit more in demand than she is now. She's taken breaks and I guess chosen to slow down her career to be a mom.
I could almost compare how her career has gone to Josh Hartnett except I'm not aware of her being offered several huge roles and passing on them.
