Legion Chapter 3 Recap and Preview for Next Week

Legion Chapter 3 recap and preview for next week

It’s time to do more memory work. Because of Amy’s capture, Melanie doesn’t believe they have time to be methodical. She wants to start with the big events – the things that scare him the most. Ptonomy thinks he has found the memory he couldn’t access from the kitchen. Though he is hesitant, David agrees to start there. In his mind, he explains that he and Philly dated for about 10 months. They fought a lot; he isn’t sure which fight this was specifically. David recognizes it when the bread box pops open. He is embarrassed, casts his eyes down as the contents of the kitchen explode around him. Melanie was right: he’s not just a telepath, but he is telekinetic. In order to learn how to use it, she needs to find the triggers, and requires to see what happened right before this fight.

David and Lenny were laying on the ground, getting high off of vapor (purchased with curios stolen from Dr. Poole), when Philly comes home with cake for a dinner party they are having tonight. Lenny tears into the cake, and Philly unplugs the frog vaporizer, which sends Lenny over the edge. The girls fight, and Ptonomy freezes the scene. “You were a junkie,” Melanie murmurs. “You got caught and you felt trapped.” Returning to the kitchen scene, Ptonomy tries to start the scene up, but says David is resisting again. David insists he isn’t. The potato devil comes out, looking dark and scary. David is the only one who can see it, but Melanie feels it when a door slams in her face. Ptonomy recognizes that something is wrong. David only remembers fear. Suddenly, the three of them are inside a yellow room. This is real. David teleported the three of them out of the memory cube, back into the main building.

Sydney finds David in the woods and they chat. She was raised in the city by an academic mother and several fathers who were all intimidated by mom. David is embarrassed, but he admits that sometimes he feels like he still has Sydney’s long hair or different center of balance. He admits he had to pee while he was her, but insists that he “didn’t touch it or look at it any more than I had to.” She teases him that she jacked off while in his body (she didn’t). She isn’t bothered by it. She has come to think of it as not her body. “I’ve been a Chinese man, a 300-pound woman, a 5-year-old girl, but every time, I’m still me.” David admits he liked being her – he liked that he could hold her hand.

Cary is hooking up electrodes to David, and injects him with a dye to better track his brainwaves. Sydney waits with Cary in the observation room. He instructs David to think of something stressful. He thinks back to a childhood Halloween. He and Amy are trick or treating with their dog, King. King gets away from them, and David goes looking. He ducks under a fence and creeps into a yard fearfully. Set back a ways is a barn or a storage building, with a larger-than-life illustration of the boy from “The World’s Angriest Boy in the World.” The painting steps off the wall and rushes towards young David.

Back in the lab, Cary asks if everything is ok. David says it is, but then Lenny is sitting with him, and the two converse. No one else can see her, and Cary is confused because the speech center of David’s brain is lit up, but he is not talking. David tells his dead friend that he isn’t sick; he has powers. Lenny points out that he isn’t as safe here as he thinks he is and that Melanie’s “secrets have secrets.” Lenny morphs into Amy, crying, saying they are hurting her. The room starts to shake; equipment breaks. Cary is worried that David is heading up. Sydney runs into the room as David levitates out of his chair. The two of them are sucked into some kind of wormhole.

We are now with Amy and the division leader, who presses Amy, convinced that she knows David was never really sick, but had powers. Sydney and David are there, “ghost-like” in the corner. Amy swears he hasn’t called, that she is not a tough person and isn’t trying to hide anything. The Eye sees the vision of David and Sydney and reaches for them. They disappear.

LEGION -- "Chapter 3" – Season 1, Episode 3 (Airs Wednesday, February 22, 10:00 pm/ep) -- Pictured: Dan Stevens as David Haller. CR: Michelle Faye/FX

David and Sydney end up in the lake at Summerland. “If you learn to control that you will be a world-class badass,” Sydney compliments him. They rush past the curious onlookers back into the building, where they meet with Melanie, Ptonomy, and Cary. After describing The Eye to Melanie, she becomes concerned and insists they are not to go back. “But if I can take Sydney there, maybe I can bring Amy back,” David suggests. Melanie refuses, believing that next time they will be waiting for him. They will either kill him or let him go, follow him to Summerland, and kill everyone here. Melanie admits she knew The Eye, before the divisions, back when he was Walter. She and her husband filled Summerland with people like David, powered people, but Walter wanted to hurt people. She returns to the situation at hand, completely flummoxed by David’s power, how his mind is defending itself. She worries that she can’t do what she needs to do to train him; that she may be making things worse. David is certain she is giving up on him, but she is not. She wants to sedate him in the hopes of gaining unfettered access to his mind.

That night, both David and Sydney are awaken by nightmares. Sydney finds David sitting alone in the bathroom, and he admits to her that he used to be a junkie. He was high all the time, lied to people, stole. He doesn’t want Sydney to come on his mind trip in the morning, because he worries it will change how she feels about him. “Do you love me?” Sydney questions. “You know I do.” “Then there is nothing else to say,” she says simply. David considers this. Then: “Everyone keeps saying I’m sane. But what if they are wrong?”

LEGION -- "Chapter 3" – Season 1, Episode 3 (Airs Wednesday, February 22, 10:00 pm/ep) -- Pictured: (l-r) Dan Stevens as David Haller, Rachel Keller as Syd Barrett. CR: Michelle Faye/FX

In the morning, our group gathers again in the comfortable yellow room. Melanie injects David with a sedative and they all journey into David’s brain. David is not there with Melanie, Sydney, and Ptonomy. Instead, it is young David, the part of his mind that is awake. Melanie tells Sydney that her powers don’t work here, and she can touch him. Sydney gives little David a big hug, then they continue.

The scene the group encounters is David breaking into Dr. Poole’s office, stealing trinkets and drug samples. The room starts to shake and Sydney is scared. She sees memory-David eating the recordings and freaks; more so when no one else sees this blip. The walls crack open and hands reach through. Sydney insists that they have to go. Melanie can’t seem to see what Syd sees, but she trusts her and tells Ptonomy to get them out of there. He can’t. Young David races from the room and Sydney follows. They run past memory-David getting high, fighting with Philly, having sex. She finally reaches little David and they keep running. Down the hall, a door slams, and the kid from the book has come to life again, and is chasing them down the hall. He looks like Hitler in this iteration. Sydney follows little David into a crawlspace, his “safe space.” They scoot along, but are running out of time. Now it isn’t the cartoony Hitler following them, but the potato man. “You have to wake up right now! I can’t help you!” Sydney screams.

In the yellow room, Sydney wakes with a start. Everyone else is still out, and all she can do to wake them is hit the chair. Ptonomy finally wakes, but Melanie is still under. So is David.

LEGION -- "Chapter 3" – Season 1, Episode 3 (Airs Wednesday, February 22, 10:00 pm/ep) -- Pictured: (l-r) Jeremie Harris as Ptonomy Wallace, Rachel Keller as Syd Barrett. CR: Michelle Faye/FX

In the mind space, Melanie goes upstairs. She sees a couple of people, David’s parents, I assume. They seem to look right at her. She continues, and follows a whimpering sound coming from David’s closet. She finds the book, “The World’s Angriest Boy in the World,” and flips through the harrowing story. Suddenly the thin volume slams shut on her hand, crushing it. The potato man is behind her. She wakes up screaming, clutching her hand in pain – but her hand is fine. Ptonomy calms her, promising it is just a memory, it can’t hurt her. Sydney, however, isn’t so sure these are just memories.

This Week In Trailers: Mean Dreams, Betting on Zero, Jawbone, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High Aka Vol. 2

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we see that Chet has moved on from bullying Wyatt to just killing people, take another lap around that Herbalife doc, marvel at Ray Winstone, and then extol the perverted virtues of Lloyd Kaufman.

Mean Dreams Trailer

Soft spot.

It’s right there in my heart for Bill Paxton. The guy has been a touchstone through the years as I’ve seen him go from Weird Science, to Aliens, to True Lies, Frailty, Big Love, and on it goes. He’s endured and this trailer shows you why: he can chew up scenery like no one else. He can be comedic relief or the heavy and he’s bringing something strong here. This may not get any large scale attention but if this trailer can be believed this could be a small gem to seek out and watch the man at work.

Jawbone Trailer

Don’t really have strong feelings about the sport of boxing.

Yeah, Rocky, Creed, all that, but I could not care less about the sport of boxing than I am about the people who inhabit its orbit. Director Thomas Q. Napper smartly focuses less on the pugilistic activities in the ring and gives us, instead, more time with Ray Winstone. It really is about a man’s struggles and this is just under the radar enough where this is not going to be saved by high profile talent alone; it will need to win on its own merits.

Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High Aka Vol. 2 Trailer (NSFW)

God bless Lloyd Kaufman.

As many times as I’ve seen the guy on TV or at Comic-Con, the man never relents and never purports to be anything other than what he is and that is he’s a great salesman. I am sorry/not sorry that I first came upon his brand of filmmaking was when I was 12 or 13 and discovered The Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke ‘Em High. These movies still hold up for what they are because they’re so unabashedly ridiculous and schlocky and absurd that it makes complete sense a 12 year-old buy would find these entertaining. Fast forward 30 years and here we are, same as it ever was. I don’t need to explain what you’ll find here because you already know: crazy gore and a whole lot of indecency. Just the way I like it.

 

Betting on Zero Teaser

Yeah, I talked about this one already some months ago.

I’m bringing this one up again because I’m fascinated by the story. You have a billionaire who is hellbent on making his opinion known about a business he believes is a pyramid scheme. Really, that’s it but the trailer again shows that the context here isn’t just about some well-heeled dudes battling it out in the boardroom, it’s about people who serve, and served, as the business’ backbone and what destruction it has wrought in its wake. Some may not find this really engaging but, again, when it comes to guys with dollars to throw around and want to make a fight very public, I’m all for listening about what’s up a billionaire’s craw so bad.

Daily Dialogue theme next week: Elevator

Join the Daily Dialogue crew: 3,201 consecutive days and counting.

The Daily Dialogue theme for next week: Elevator.

“The characters you meet. Something happens to men in elevators. Must be the change of altitude. The blood rushes to their head or something.”

Think about it. A lot of memorable movie scenes take place in an elevator. It’s often a strange nexus point between characters. Complete strangers. Acquaintances. They know each other well. Or not. Generally features awkward conversation.

Let’s see if we can come up with 7 good examples of elevator movie dialogue.

What to do:

  • Copy/paste dialogue from IMDb Quotes or some other transcript source.
  • Copy/paste the URL of an accompanying video from YouTube or some other video source.
  • Any trivia about the movie which you think would be of interest to readers, we always welcome that.

I’d also ask you to think about why the dialogue is notable. Is there anything about the dialogue which provides some takeaway related to the craft of writing? If so, feel free to share your Dialogue On Dialogue

Consecutive days of Daily Dialogue posts: 3,201.

Be a part of the proud Daily Dialogue tradition, post a suggestion in a RESPONSE, and have your name emblazoned on a blog post which will forever hold a hallowed spot in the Go Into The Story archives!

Daily Dialogue theme next week: Period Piece

Join the Daily Dialogue crew: 3,194 consecutive days and counting.

The Daily Dialogue theme for next week: Period Piece, suggested by @etom212.

“I have come here with no expectations, only to profess, that my heart is, and always will be, yours.”

Period Piece: “A story set in or strongly reminiscent of an earlier historical period.” Given that historical dramas have proven to be quite popular the last several years, this is a great theme.

When writing a period piece, we have to be mindful of the influence of local cultures on our characters’ dialogue.

Let’s come up with 7 great examples of dialogue in period piece movies.

What to do:

  • Copy/paste dialogue from IMDb Quotes or some other transcript source.
  • Copy/paste the URL of an accompanying video from YouTube or some other video source.
  • Any trivia about the movie which you think would be of interest to readers, we always welcome that.

This Week In Trailers: American Anarchist, Lost in France, A New High, Chef’s Table, Wild Mouse

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we have hope for addicts making their way up a very big hill, we get the bands back together, get fired and try to murder the boss, speak with the guy who helped teens everywhere blow stuff up good, see the softer side of chefs, and kick our drug habit by walking up a big hill.

Wild Mouse Trailer

It doesn’t relent.

Huge fan of the opening salvo and everything about this narrative. Director Josef Hader has put together a deeply dark comedy that feels comfortably placed in the space just to the left of movies occupied by many kill-your-old-boss comedies like Horrible Bosses. This feels like the boss could be bumped off at any moment and that there are some deeper issues at play here. It’s meaty, hilarious, wickedly on point with its sensibility, and there is a lot to unpack with our protagonist as he struggles through his life. You can’t place this one neatly in a box and that’s a good thing.

Lost in France Trailer

Two disparate thoughts:

  1. I’m such a fan of bands coming back together now that were from the mid 90’s (read here: Belly, Lush, Letters to Cleo) and seeing one of them multiple times last year (Belly, who I’m hoping will take me on during their next tour as Chris Gorman’s gum tech) I can say without an ounce of irony they re-changed my life all over again. So, while I wait in agony for The Sundays to come back (seriously, someone get Harriet Wheeler on the horn to find out what’s up) I’m all in when it comes to bands around this time taking a victory lap.
  2. I really want T2 Trainspotting to be good. It showed me a different side of Scotland, it’s all about these characters reconnecting after 20 years and, besides, that accent is bananas.

Glasgow had quite the impact on music in the mid-90’s and Niall McCann’s documentary that explores these upstarts that made some waves looks like a gem. The trailer, instead of shoving the musical importance of these people in front of us, takes a different angle by doing what’s most interesting: letting these people talk and letting them put into context of what it means to come back and revisiting their passions now that they’re older. It’s not sad, it’s emboldening and it’s touching.

American Anarchist Trailer

Quite a departure from Finding Vivian Maier.

I’ve never cracked the cover of The Anarchist Cookbook but I remember hearing a lot about it as a suburban youth. Director Charlie Siskel seems to be taking an interesting look at the manual that launched the careers of many violent scofflaws. The trailer deftly bridges the gap between the kid who wrote the book and the man who now reflects on what that book’s existence did to the world it was unleashed into. There are moments of incredible clarity and moments you feel the emotional impact of what it means to have a straight line lead back to you for something that negatively impacted so many lives. Responsible or not, the net effect is effective here.

Chef’s Table Trailer

Sumptuous.

There’s just something about exploring the lives and stories of the people who create and appreciate food, its essence. An award winning series, it’s easy to see why this is the case as this trailer explores the lives of gourmands and delves into the stories of how they grew into this profession. There aren’t many ways to show how highfalutin food is produced but when you wrap their creations around their individual stories, contextualizing their obsessions, it becomes irresistibly tantalizing.

A New High Trailer

Addiction is a wretched thing.

There’s not much to director Samuel Miron and Stephen Scott Scarpulla’s story about personal redemption in the face of hardcore drug addiction but these are the kinds of stories that are inspiring in one of the most human ways possible. With the rise of opioid drug abuse, these are the narratives that will never go away and this documentary at least feels like it has something honest to say. The trailer doesn’t redefine the genre but it’s the stories of people grappling with their darkest demons that make this wildly engaging.

Nota bene: If you have any suggestions of trailers to possibly be included in this column, even have a trailer of your own to pitch, please let me know by sending me a note at Christopher_Stipp@yahoo.com or look me up via Twitter at @Stipp

New Details on Black Panther’s South Korea Chase Scene Revealed

Last week, Marvel Studios officially announced the production of Marvel’s Black Panther had begun and that production would set up shop in both Atlanta and South Korea. Though the description for the film seemed to indicate a primarily Wakandan-set feature, the film will have a big action scene set in South Korea’s Busan, including landmarks such as the Gwangalli beach, Gwangan Bridge, and the Jagalchi fish market.

“The shoot, which will involve some 150 cars and more than 700 people, is a car chase scene with the protagonist and the villain,” local production service company Mr. Romance Film said. “It will also involve helicopter(s) and guns (firing blanks) and may cause noise as well as traffic restrictions.”

Eidos Montreal Reportedly Developing Guardians of the Galaxy Video Game

Last week came the official reveal that Marvel Entertainment had signed a deal with publisher Square Enix and developers Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal to create several games based around key properties, with an Avengers-centric game as the first up to bat.

Now, in a report from Eurogamer on the status of their other franchises, comes word that Eidos Montreal is already working on the second game from the agreement and it will be based on none other than Guardians of the Galaxy. It remains to be seen what this game will be, but given previous confirmation that no further news on the Avengers video game would come until 2018, we can expect to be waiting a while for official word on it.

A different Guardians of the Galaxy video game is in development from developer Telltale Games as well, but given the episodic and player-choice driven nature of their titles, we can expect the two titles to be quite different.

This Week in Disney History

hollywood-pictures-intro-hd-1992_dvd.original

This week in 1989 Disney officially launched their moderately budgeted film label Hollywood Pictures, which has been entirely defunct since 2007. The division with a sphinx logo performed poorly from its inception, releasing a string of flops that made some coin the term, “If it’s the sphinx, it stinks.” Hollywood Pictures did generate several notable hits, including The Sixth SenseThe Hand That Rocks the Cradle, Encino ManTombstoneWhile You Were SleepingCrimson Tide and The Rock

Disney’s Pixar Animation Studios was founded on this day in 1986!

In 1941 the film Fantasia had its Hollywood premiere, and in 1959 Buena Vista premiered Disney’s animated feature Sleeping Beauty at the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles.

This week Disney released The Three Caballeros in 1945, Those Calloways in 1965, Down and Out in Beverly Hills in 1986 (the first R-rated Disney Studios film), Outrageous Fortune in 1987, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey in 1993, White Squall in 1996, Deep Rising in 1998 and The Count of Monte Cristo in 2002.

Each week we highlight an underappreciated Disney classic! This week we’re going way way back to 1954 for the Disney’s first major live-action epic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, adapted from the famous Jules Verne book of the same name. Hearty seaman Ned Land (Kirk Douglas) and two men of science (Paul Lukas and Peter Lorre) survive a shipwreck and are taken aboard the advanced submarine The Nautilus, run by the fanatical Captain Nemo. Their adventures are captured in gorgeous CinemaScope on amazing sets (it was the most expensive film ever made at the time), and despite a few hokey musical numbers this remains a lot of fun even by today’s standards. Check out the Trailers From Hell commentary below!

This Week In Trailers: Here’s to Life!, After the Storm, Donald Cried, Fittest On Earth: A Decade of Fitness, Kiki

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we wonder at a one-hit wonder and ponder what could have been and is, visit our old stomping grounds to find a piece of our past in all its cringe worthy glory, try to get out of a personal rut, ask ourselves “How much ya bench?” over and over again, and marvel at personal expression.

Donald Cried Trailer

Strong like bull.

One of the things that I appreciate about the debut from director Kristopher Avedisian is just how awkward it is. Kind of like Just Friends when the idea was that a guy goes back home to win the affections of a girl, this is the unholy, 2nd earth opposite of that but it looks just as funny (yes, I’m comfortable enough in my own skin to say I enjoy that Ryan Reynolds charmer). There’s obviously a thing between our protagonist and his unintentionally lecherous buddy but it’s a lot less Chuck & Buck and a lot more plain old wackiness that is in play here. I heartily approve.

After the Storm Trailer

Serious.

Get your attention focused on the latest from director Hirokazu Koreeda. Koreeda is just flat-out amazing at what he does and that’s telling emotionally gripping stories that necessitate nothing more than well-thought out ideas, a solid script, and actors who know what they need to deliver. It’s deceptively simple looking but if you’ve ever seen Like Father, Like Son, Our Little Sister, or Nobody Knows you can appreciate that Koreeda is a champ at this kind of thing. This trailer has a little bit of sweetness, a little bit of depression, and a whole lot of emotion that is devoid of anything coming close to maudlin. The piano soundtrack is a bit much but nothing has touched me quite like this trailer did. And, after it lingered for a while, I just loved it that much more.

Kiki Trailer

Paris Is Burning redux.

One of the more powerful ways to begin a trailer, hearing the personal story of someone who did not find acceptance at home for expressing how they felt inside was a good angle to come in at with this. Director Sara Jordenö has some heavy lifting to do in explaining what it is that we’re doing here and, more importantly, why we should care about what is happening before our eyes. I sure didn’t know this was a thing, a movement, something that seems to be well-known by those in the know, but the more I watched what this all means to these individuals it’s easy to see why this outlet provides solace to so many.

Fittest On Earth: A Decade of Fitness Trailer

It’s a commercial for CrossFit, just so you know.

One of the things I love about doing P90X erryday is how addicting it is. I wasn’t ever really interested in doing squats, burpees, push-ups, and pull-ups until I wanted to yak but once you start feeling and seeing a difference in yourself, you start to get greedy. You want more of that. Nowhere is that axiom better shown than in the documentary directed by Heber Cannon, Marston Sawyers, Ian Wittenber, and Mariah Moore. These athletes are entirely insane and seem driven by something that the normal world just wouldn’t be able to comprehend. I don’t know why it’s so mesmerizing to watch people push themselves until their bodies give out but in an age when anyone can be a celebrity there are still those who rise to the top purely because they are the best at what they do. Again, it might be one long advertisement for CrossFit but this is wild.

Here’s to Life! Trailer

I just love these kinds of stories.

As someone who has lived in Arizona for over 20 years (geez, that’s a sobering fact) I think I’m required to own a copy of The Refresments’ Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy somewhere in my CD collection at all times. The Refreshments were one of those couple hit wonders and even were able to land the King of the Hill theme before they eventually went the way of bands you sometimes think to yourself “Whatever happened to…” Thing is, though, frontman Roger Clyne has been a consistent feature act in this part of the country and this documentary from director Taylor Morden seems to afford us the opportunity to get a postmortem on what it was that happened within this band. I don’t think there’s anything mind blowing that will be coming out of this one but if these kinds of stories are up your alley it could be a great diversion.
