(162) America, fuck no + links

By Sati. Thursday, December 18, 2014 1 Comment so far

  •  This is gonna be more scattered than usual. Kinda like my brain - I had so many difficult cases to think over this week. One day it actually took me 10 hours to come up with one solution. This is the hardest month in my job yet and add to that Christmas one is surprised why this is the only post this week, right? I have seen 0 movies since last Saturday.

    The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Nominations

    By Sati. Thursday, December 11, 2014 , 22 Comments
    Rosamund Pike, Best Actress in Drama - Gone Girl and Mark Ruffalo, Best Supporting Actor - Foxcatcher
     What did we learn today?

    We learned that if your heart is pure (kind of) and you are rooting for the movie (that you haven't even seen yet) and it has your darling Fluffalo in it, amazing things can happen.

    Foxcatcher which wasn't even present in most of critics' top 10 and nominations (while Boyhood triumphed, that sound you hear is me vomiting) got a big boost this week with Steve Carell getting both SAG and GG nominations and the film getting Best Picture nomination as well as the inclusion among AFI's top 10 11 of the year. But it did come with a price - apparently where it triumphed, Gone Girl was absent.

    But let's focus on what's important - Mark Ruffalo is a double SAG and Golden Globe nominee this year. Oh, yeah!

    Screaming Sunday - The Babadook

    By Sati. Sunday, December 7, 2014 , 21 Comments
    Movie rating - 80/100
    Plot:  A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son's fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.
    The heroes: The mother and her son. Or perhaps just her son?
    The antagonists: The mysterious Babadook
    Best scene: It's hard to choose just one in the film so consistent but I'd choose the scene where Amelia gets the book back...with certain creepy additions to it.
    Oh-oh something's not right line: Don't let him in.
    What makes it so great? This film is easily one of the best and smartest horror films of the last few years - it's not quite as entertaining as Orphan or The Conjuring but it's very psychologically complex, brilliantly acted and executed. The film's best element is the script which much like for example Black Swan is showing the events almost completely from subjective perspective leaving a lot of room for theories and interpretations.

    (160) Distress call + links

    By Sati. Friday, December 5, 2014 40 Comments
  • Sweet Jesus. The Supporting Actors THR roundtable will be a laugh riot.
  • No, no, bear with me here - imagine Mark in his Detective Toschi get up, all that curls, that sweet teddy bear look, being in despair, sending e-mails to people, probably hiding in the corner somewhere, because Fincher is being Fincher.  Perhaps also waving an upside down Avengers flag as a distress call to RDJ? This is priceless. I love this.
  • Can I hold him, please?

    Stephen Dillane Appreciation

    By Sati. Sunday, November 30, 2014 16 Comments
    Stephen Dillane
    November 30, 1956 (London, England, UK)

    I have to phrase this perfectly: I'm just not convinced that the attention we give to creating what we think of as a character isn't actually quite often the means by which an actor overcomes his own terror of standing there onstage and creating a mask to hide behind.

  • I rewatched Avengers and Now You See Me, for obvious reasons. God, I just love Mark's character in the latter, he is so freaking hot. I really hope they do make a sequel to this one. Look at him go with that gun! And that pout in the first one. Oh, Jesus.
