Happy birthday Cillian

A good friend of mine asked me to participate in Cillian blogathon. I haven’t seen a lot of his movies but i feel he always gives a good performance. My favorite performance of his is in Peacock,which is also one of his least known films. And it wasn’t just because he played 2 different characters(Although i do generally respect actors who play more than 1 role in a movie or tv show). There was just something wonderfully nuanced about his performance of both characters, yet they were still clearly defined. All the actors in the movie were on there A game, but Cillian still stuck out. He truly carries the movie, and gives one of the best lead performances i’ve seen in a while. Peacock is worth watching just for Cillians performance alone.

    I haven’t seen this one, but I do love Cillian heaps! He usually steals the show in every movie he appears in.

    Loving the banner 😉

    Nice write up my matey,


    • Well it was made by an expert 🙂

      Oh did you ever get around to seeing my Cera post?

      • Custard says:

        I did my friend, did I not comment? Sorry I have had a shocker of a couple of days…

        • If you did the comment didn’t go through. And yeah i know you haven’t had a great couple of days, but it seems like things are getting back to normal for you 🙂

          • Custard says:

            Ah sorry matey. Hows tricks now after graduation?

            I must say that that banner looks cool there. Even if i do say so myself.

            If you want me to change it at all, then giz us a shout

            • Its ok. I was just really happy to see someone besides me defending Cera 🙂

              And the banner should be good. If i want any changes i will tell you.

              And by “tricks” i am assuming you mean life in general(I’m not familiar with that expression)?

              It feels good to have graduated, especially with all the trouble i had my last semester.

              • Custard says:

                Yeah tricks is a southern english phrase…meaning life in general (think it comes from turning tricks in prostitution though)

                I am glad you are doing well. I know nothing of your problems matey I am sorry….

      • Ronan says:

        Nice banner work Custard. Works well Julian, very sharp. Like the tagline as well. Goldie-locks would approve 😉
