No, YOU listened to a sad song because Mousa Dembele is officially gone.
Ramble of the Day
A couple of weeks ago, I was at the movies and saw a trailer for the movie Arctic, starring Mads Mikkelsen. It’s about a man who is stranded in the arctic after a plane crash and has to decide to either stay in a camp or go outside in order to survive and save a young woman.
It looks a little scary, and that makes me want to watch it. The other day, I saw someone tweet an article about this movie, but it wasn’t a review or anything like that. Apparently, there’s another Mads Mikkelsen movie involving him getting stuck in the snow and having to save a woman. It’s called Polar.
Marissa Martinelli at Slate went to the effort to differentiate them. In one, he’s a serial killer! In one, he has a beard and he doesn’t in the other! Vanessa Hudgens is in one of them! I didn’t go back and read the article, so I have no idea what happens in which movie! For all I know, I could be describing one movie and not both!
The fun thing is that both of them come out within a week of each other. Polar’s on Netflix on January 25, and Arctic hits theaters on February 1. Maybe I’ll watch them back-to-back one day, like I watched A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding and The Princess Switch back-to-back before Christmas. (They are also essentially the same film, and one of them also has Vanessa Hudgens in it.)
I’ll definitely report back if I do this, or at least tweet about this.
tl;dr: Is Mads Mikkelsen being typecast?
