Don't get me wrong, the movie had some AWESOME scenes but goddamn. Why would they take 3 unknown prisoners on a CIA plane with bags on their heads when they know that Bane wears a mask ("They work for the mercenary, the masked man." "Bane?"? Why wouldn't you check their goddamned faces first? I realize this is a nitpick but it's just a precursor to the other parts of the movie that all add up to an inability to suspend disbelief. This movie was such a clusterfuck. submitted by tawndy [link] [1 comment]
Warning: full spoilers for the episode follow.
As always, tonight's Bates Motel was packed. Tall dark and Sheriff demonstrates that he is, in fact, the man; Emma and Norman momentarily step into the third act of a 1980's John Hughes-directed adolescent coming-of-age film; Norma selects a very Norma moment to play true confessions; and Bradley and Dylan take one more step towards official canoodling. In the midst of all that, there is one thing we all want to know: Did Norman pop his killer cherry?
Forgive the crass phrasing, I suppose I'm still swept-up in the winter dance setting. It's interesting though, that sort of surrealistic high-school dance sequence did set us up for our protagonist to have a life-defining moment, a triumphant entrance into maturity, so it was sick, but in some ways perfect, to have this be the night that Norman makes his first unprovoked kill. Yes, teens often loose things the night of the big dance, but it's not often the last vestiges of their tenuous hold on sanity. Oh, Norman
