Today is my precious cinnamon roll Tom Hiddleston‘s 35th birthday! So naturally, instead of writing my recap of The 100, I’m here fangirling.

Tom has had a busy few years, and the list speaks for itself. In celebration of his birthday, monumental talent, and astonishingly perfect face, let’s take a look at what he has coming to screens near you.

It’s no secret that I love Tom Hiddleston. We’re obviously meant for each other.  I’ve been crushing on him since Return to Cranford (that’s right, I’m a pre-Thor Tom hipster), and I haven’t looked back since.

Tom has quite a few exciting projects coming up, including the long-awaited gothic romance Crimson Peak, the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The LightHigh Rise, and The Night Manager (co-starring Hugh Laurie). He will also begin filming for Kong: Skull Island soon, and I can’t say I’ve ever looked forward to anything starring a giant gorilla until now.

At any rate, no matter where he is filming, what he is promoting, or what premiere he is attending, Tom always finds a way to melt my heart or make me squee (usually both at the same time).

Hollywood loves a remake. They really do. Sometimes, these movies turn out better than the originals did. But most of the time, I find myself cringing. Take the news of the remake of the classic 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, for example.

No joke, ^this^ was me. Don’t get me wrong, I love Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, but how can you possibly replace Yul Brynner in a black cowboy hat?

That’s right, you can’t.

(Before anyone comments, yes, I am aware that The Magnificent Seven is itself a remake of Seven Samurai. Am I a hypocrite? A little, because Yul.)

At any rate, I could talk for days about the original films that I far prefer to their remakes, but I have narrowed it down to five.
