The following contains spoilers from chuckySeason 2 finale.

On this crazy little show called chuckywe’ve seen the killer doll dish out electrocutions, beheadings, explosions and a myriad of stabbings… but we still weren’t ready for that disgusting, gory outing in Wednesday’s crazy finale!

As we learned at the top of the episode, Chucky swapped bodies with Dr. Mixter seconds before the doll was shot in the face by Andy. Since the doc had a brand new doll hidden in a safe, another switcheroo meant that Charles Lee Ray was back inside another Good Guy doll, and ready for revenge on Lexy, Jake, and Devon. Unfortunately for Lexy’s mother, Michelle, she encountered the pointy end of the maniac doll’s new chainsaw and was literally split in two.

When Tiffany came to pick up the Belle doll from Caroline, she was on her former lover’s BS. With the gun now in Lexy’s possession, Tiff let the girl go after him, effectively ending Chucky’s reign of terror for good.

Ha! Barely.

Lexy hacked the doll’s face as revenge for her mother’s murder, but when Tiffany fled the scene, she discovered that Belle was just another Chucky doll in drag (!), and the monstrous Charles lived again.

Needless to say we had a lot questions for designer Don Mancini after this delightful gut-filled season. Below, he talks to TVLine about blasting Devon Sawa, how exactly you cut a character in half, the always-playing Jennifer Tilly, what’s in store for GG (fka Glen/Glenda) and much more.

TVLINE | Poor Devon Sawa can’t take a break from this series! If there is a season 3 do you have any ideas how to bring it back just to keep killing it?
DON MANCINI | We never know! Stay tuned. That’s all I can say officially, but we love it. He’s a great actor and a great guy. I certainly like working with him even though Chucky apparently hates him if you follow their feud on Twitter. Will he continue to be the Jessica Lange of our franchise? I love bringing actors back into different roles and I’ve done that with other actors. As a writer, I like to write things to specific actors. It’s a lot of fun, so fingers crossed.

TVLINE | There have been so many amazing kills this season, including Lexy’s mom in that finale. Do you have a favorite death scene from Season 2?
I think it would be that one and Devon Sawa exploding, à la, Brian De Palma the fury. Nadine’s was the most shocking, and in a way the simplest. We knew it was going to have a big effect on the fanbase, especially since the culprit was Good Chucky there. So that in itself was fun to plan and execute, but when I was a kid I was a huge Brian De Palma fan. I loved the fury – I still to like the fury – and I have already paid homage to it in child’s play 2. We blasted Chucky the exact same way and showed different angles. It was fun doing that with Devon Sawa, and I think it went really well. And also, Barbara Woods, who plays Michelle, her chainsaw… it was pretty brutal!

TVLINE | What happens in the filming of a death like that of Father Bryce or Michelle? How many people does it take on set to create such complex scenes?
It’s very complicated and it affects several departments. In the case of these murders, these two actors had to make full casts of them. So, for that, we rely on this guy named François Dagenais, who does these effects for us from Toronto. He had also worked on Hannibal and String zero. He is brilliant. Then there’s the component of: What are you doing to those bodies? Whether you’re blowing them up or slicing them in half, we bring in our special effects specialist, Jeff Skochko, and he’s amazing. He was involved in both murders. There are [also] some visual effects.

Sometimes the work is devolved to certain units. Devon Sawa’s explosion, I actually have to direct this. It was just a coincidence, the way the schedules worked on both seasons. Towards the end, we have a second simultaneous unit that I lead, so I have to lead the Devon Sawa dummy detonation. It was literally the last thing we did in the whole show. It was around 4:30 a.m. on our last night. We need a town!

The most important thing, or as important as everything else: the actor himself has to make it work and really sell it, and I think both have done that. All actors do. It’s always such a weird thing to ask an actor to go, “Give me a good death.” For some people it’s fun and easy, and for others it’s hard and sometimes puts them in a weird state of mind. It may be harder than it looks.

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | Following the shooting and Glen’s coma, Glen and Glenda’s souls were put back inside the Glen doll [voiced by Billy Boyd]. Does Lachlan Watson [who plays Glen/Glenda] really gone for good, and now that the new GG has left for England, what can you say about his future in the series?
I like Lachlan. I loved working with them and would like to work with them more in the future. I also like working with Billy Boyd. It was great to have him back for this scene as GG. The characters/now the character of Glen, Glen/Glenda and now GG are very important to me. I wanted to set up a situation at the end of the season where we could think, “Oh, there’s more to say here in this ongoing family saga.” If we get a season 3, I hope to dig deeper into this story.

TVLINE | Tiffany and Chucky have had quite the relationship over the years. In the finale, she lets Lexy chop him into pieces. Do they love each other more or do they just want them to die at this point? And how fun is it to play with that dynamic?
It’s great to play with that dynamic. I think like in any passionate relationship, there are ups and downs. I think so, there is a part of them that still loves each other. Tiffany, even in Season 1 for a while, she’s been doing her bidding a bit. I think she’s the most vulnerable in this relationship, because she’s the one who usually took all the shit, and so it was interesting to put her on the offensive against him. It’s great fun to play with that dynamic and evolve it in different ways, and use it as a metaphor for any romantic relationship that has its ups and downs. But with them, there is collateral damage… a lot collateral damage!

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | Watching Jennifer Tilly on this show is an absolute delight. Seems like she’s always ready to poke fun at herself, including that “What would Jennifer do?” final line. When you and the writers are working, do you stop and think, “Is this too far? Should we check with Jen? or is she still totally gone?
She is generally ready for anything and often pushes me to go even further. When I was writing Seed of Chucky, we originally planned to make the character of Jennifer Tilly much more problematic, much less traditionally likable on the first draft. But the studio kind of said, “That’s the main role, we have to make her a little more likable.” But she’s pretty much ready for anything. On Seed of Chucky, something she objected to, there’s a moment when Jennifer vomits into her purse – which is a manifestation of her morning sickness, although she doesn’t know it yet – and she was reluctant to do so. do, as I understand. An actor wants to maintain her glamor quotient or whatever, but in the end she let me convince her. I just had to assure him it wasn’t going to be messy. She has just vomited very discreetly and like a lady in her purse. I think what really sold her was that we had a purse with her face on it, so even Jennifer knew, “OK, that’s kind of funny.” [Laughs]

TVLINE | I would be remiss if I didn’t ask about Kyle and Andy. They both survived near-fatal encounters with Chucky yet again, but they didn’t show up in the finale. At the end of 207, it seems they believe Chucky is finally done for. Is it possible that they… leave at sunset and live the rest of their lives in blissful ignorance?
What would you like as a fan? Do you want them back or do you want them up at sunset?

Chucky season 2 finaleTVLINE | It’s tricky because if they come back, they could potentially be killed, and I don’t know if I want that! But you do such a good job of balancing the storylines between classic characters and newbies. How hard is it to do that when you have decades of legacy to contend with?
It’s hard, but that’s also part of the fun. This is what TV media is. It’s juggling various characters and relationships, and lighting some fuses early on to burn and blow later in the season. As a storyteller, I really enjoy doing that, so that’s part of what you’re talking about. It’s tough, but it’s our job, and I have a terrific team of writers and fellow directors to help me pull it off.

TVLINE | Considering everything she’s been through, I loved the ending with Nica seeking revenge on Tiffany. What can you tease about Nica’s future journey?
She declared war on Tiffany. Since she’s a good sportswoman, she says, “OK, I’ll give you a head start because I love your child. They helped me get out of your prison, but I’m still going to torture you and kill you. I always intended to put Nica in the wringer for a while so she could come out on the other side a bigger and more surprising badass than ever. And I like the idea of ​​doing that with a disabled character, and setting it up that way. And his disability isn’t going to stop him for an inch or a moment.

‘Quordle’ today: See every ‘Quordle’ answer and advice for November 20 https://dhinc.org/quordle-today-see-every-quordle-answer-and-advice-for-november-20/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 04:05:55 +0000 https://dhinc.org/quordle-today-see-every-quordle-answer-and-advice-for-november-20/

Sunday Quordes are, all things considered, the most relaxing Quordes of all. For most of us, Sunday is the time when we are furthest from the work week, and Sunday comes with a rich tradition of lounging at home, slowly reading the newspaper and doing riddles. An extra hard puzzle can be an added bonus, but it can also add frustration to an otherwise enjoyable day.

Whether Quordle is a little too difficult today, you’ve come to the right place for hints. There are not just clues here, but the whole Quordle the solution. Scroll to the bottom of this page, and there it is. But are you sure you need all four answers? Maybe you just need a strategy guide. Either way, scroll down and you’ll get what you need.

What is Quordle?

Quordle is a five-letter word game similar to wordle, except that each guess applies letters to four words at the same time. You get nine guesses instead of six for correctly guessing all four words. Looks like playing four wordle games at the same time, and that’s basically what it is. But it’s not as intimidating as it sounds.

East Quordle more difficult than Wordle?

Yes, but not diabolically.

Where does Quordle comes from?

In the middle of the wordle boom of late 2021 and early 2022, when everyone was learning to love free, in-browser, once-a-day guessing games, creator Freddie Meyer says he was inspired by one of first big wordle variants, Dordle — the one where you essentially play two Words immediately. He took things up a notch and released Quordle on January 30. Meyer’s creation was covered in The Guardian six days later, and now, according to Meyer, it attracts millions of daily users. Today, Meyer earns a modest income from Patreon, where dedicated Quordle fans can donate to keep their favorite puzzle game running.

How is Quordle pronounced?

“Kwordle.” It should rhyme with “Wordle” and certainly shouldn’t be pronounced exactly like “quail”.

East Quordle strategy different from wordle?

Yes and no.

Your starting strategy should be the same as with wordle. In fact, if you have a favorite wordle opening word, there’s no reason to change that here. We suggest something vowel-rich, with common letters like C, R, and N. But you do.

After your first guess, however, you’ll notice things spiraling out of control if you play Quordle exactly like wordle.

What should I do in Quordle that I don’t do in wordle?

solve a wordle The puzzle can be boiled down to a series of single letter change variations. If you narrowed it down to “-IGHT”, you can guess “MIGHT” “NIGHT” “LIGHT” and “SIGHT” and one of them will probably be the answer – although this is also a famous way to end up losing wordle, especially if you play in “hard mode”. In Quordlehowever, this type of single-letter winnowing is a death trap, and it hints at the important strategic difference between wordle and Quordle: In Quordleyou can’t afford to waste guesses unless you eliminate as many letters as possible at all times.

Guessing a completely random word you already know isn’t the answer, just to eliminate three or four possible letters you haven’t tried yet is considered a desperate and irreversible move. wordle. In Quordlehowever, it is a normal part of the player’s set of strategic tools.

Is there a way to get the answer faster?

In my experience Quordle can be a slow game, sometimes dragging longer than it takes to play wordle four times. But a kind of brutal guesswork approach can speed things up. The following strategy also works with wordle if you just want the solution, and don’t care about having as few guesses as possible:

Try starting with a series of words that put all the vowels (including Y) on the board, along with other common letters. We had luck with the three words: “NOTES”, “ACRID” and “LUMPY”. YouTuber DougMansLand suggests four words: “CANOE”, “SKIRT”, “PLUMB” and “FUDGY”.

Most of the alphabet is now eliminated and you will only have the chance to make one or two wrong guesses if you use this strategy. But in most cases, you’ll have all the information you need to guess the remaining words without any mistakes.

If the strategy doesn’t help and you’re still confused, here are some tips:

Are there double or triple letters in the today Quordle words?

Two words have letters appearing twice.

Are there any rare letters used today Quordle like Q or Z?

No.

what today Quordle the words start with ?

W, F, C and B.

What are the answers for today Quordle?

Are you sure you want to know?

There is still time to turn back.

OK, you asked for it. The answers are:

  1. SHOUT

  2. CELLO

  3. DEVIL

  4. BULKY

10 Video Game Characters You Didn’t Know Were Inspired By Real People https://dhinc.org/10-video-game-characters-you-didnt-know-were-inspired-by-real-people/ Sat, 29 Oct 2022 08:03:06 +0000 https://dhinc.org/10-video-game-characters-you-didnt-know-were-inspired-by-real-people/

Although video games are becoming a more mature and singular medium year by year, like all art forms, they are often a form of inspiration and homage, where artists use existing material as reference to create something new.

And that’s never been more true in video games than with their characters, which have historically tended to draw inspiration from reality – most often, from the world of Hollywood.

Yet those influences aren’t always immediately clear, because of course that inspiration was molded and shaped into something else throughout the creative process.

As such, you probably don’t know that these 10 iconic and unforgettable video game characters were all inspired by real, flesh-and-blood human beings, be they actors, musicians, martial artists, daredevils. or maybe even a historical figure. .

In some cases, the comparison becomes impossible to hide once you become aware of it, while in others the influence is not strictly physical, but relates more subtly to mannerisms, personality traits and pure attitude.

Whatever the basis, these video game characters all owe something to real life characters, who had no direct involvement in the game itself…

It’s no secret that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima love films and drew considerable influence from them throughout his career.

And while you’ll surely know that Metal Gear Solid’s protagonist, Solid Snake, was inspired by Kurt Russell’s character, Snake Plissken, from John Carpenter’s iconic film, Escape from New York, Kojima became a little less obvious when of the design of one of the most important characters of Metal Gear Solid 3.

For years many fans have noticed that Big Boss mentor and apparently Soviet renegade The Boss looks like Cate Blanchett, although in 2014 Kojima confirmed on Twitter that Blanchett was not the inspiration at all. On the contrary, The Boss was based on the English actress Charlotte Rampling in her youth.

Given Rampling’s striking looks and piercing gaze, it’s easy to see why Kojima found her so perfect as the basis for such a tough and piercing character, even if it’s a much more subtle choice than use Kurt Russell/Snake Plissken as a model for Solid Snake. .

The creator of SAS Rogue Heroes on the Peaky Blinders comparison https://dhinc.org/the-creator-of-sas-rogue-heroes-on-the-peaky-blinders-comparison/ Wed, 26 Oct 2022 09:12:53 +0000 https://dhinc.org/the-creator-of-sas-rogue-heroes-on-the-peaky-blinders-comparison/

The creator and screenwriter of SAS Rogue Heroes, a new BBC drama that traces the formation of the Special Air Service during World War II, has drawn a comparison to another of his works.

When Steven Knight was asked about the parallels between the characters on his upcoming series and those on Peaky Blinders during a recent Q&A, he said the two shows seemed to have similar “themes.”

“There seems to be some sort of theme with Peaky and that, where it’s a group of men who are probably not the easiest people to fit into mainstream society,” he explained. . “I think all the people who are the heroes in all of this, if there hadn’t been a war, they would have ended up in prison and would have been in trouble because they weren’t equipped for a normal society. .

“There’s a beautiful quote from Rudyard Kipling. It says, ‘For it’s Tommy this, and Tommy that, and throw him out, bully! But he’s ‘Savior of’ his country’ when the guns start to shoot.’

“In other words, people who get kicked out of clubs and restaurants and get into terrible trouble in peace, when war comes, they’re needed. I think that’s really interesting. Maybe being that people watching this who feel like they’re outcast and not good for society and not fitting in might be thinking, ‘Well, I could be a hero.'”

The cast of SAS Rogue Heroes.

Sex Education’s Connor Swindells, who stars in the series alongside Jack O’Connell (Skins, ’71, The North Water) and Alfie Allen (Game of Thones, Whitehouse Farm, Jojo Rabbit) also spoke about the brutal filming conditions .

“We also did a lot of daytime stuff for the night, which was the most difficult because the night in the [Sahara] the desert is normally extremely cold, so we would be wearing tons and tons of layers, but we were shooting at noon in the heat,” Swindells explained. “And they were unbearably hot and your rifle gets heavier and heavier and heavier, shot after shot. after taking. It was a fight.”

But he also said there was a lot to enjoy during their time in Morocco: “I have fond memories of us bombing it through the Sahara Desert in the Jeeps. You couldn’t see the camera. There was no supporting artist anywhere. It was just us in the cars bombing it, living like the characters. Those are my fondest memories of it all.
