(144) Well, this is not gonna be appropriate. At all.*

By Sati. Friday, August 15, 2014
* there are going to be many puns in this post. It's just a happy coincidence of the very unique movie/photos/news items combination that happened this week 
* I'm not going to address the painful news - to any movie fan - we got this week. So many of you wrote thoughtful and meaningful posts about that. RF is a place of joy and pure fangirlism where you get to catch up on some latest news and marvel at my rapid collapse of sanity and the climb on the geek mountain. This is a place of happiness. And today - of even more blatant than usual dick innuendos.
 
  • oh...my...God. Are, are you kidding?
  • I saw 44 Inch Chest. I understood maybe 70% of the movie but ooh my God. look at him in that suit. That's like...art. I mean...porn.
  • It was kinda a cool movie - Ray Winstone's wife cheated on him so his gangster friends kidnapped her lover and put him a wardrobe and discuss what to do with him. The whole movie is set in one house and it also features Ian McShane, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson. It was quite surreal at times but the actors were fantastic.
  • There was also so much swearing. Also Stephen said stuff like '69' and a whole lot of F-word variations. Yet again my survival is baffling.
  • At one point he was the sexy chauffeur. I can't even. I can't.
  • There was this really funny scene in which Tom Wilkinson was describing Winstone's dreams to Stephen and Stephen's bafflement was so precious. 
  • Tonight I'm gonna be watching Savage Grace, which I heard is no good but it features Dillane's full frontal nudity. And I had a long and hard week.
  • One more time, let's give it up for Chris Pratt:
  • Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately we don't have any new Leo, Interrupted photos this week but oh, oh, we have this:
  •  There's more:
  •  That's a long shotgun. 
  • ....
  • Fine, fine. Let's class it up. A bit.
  • I finally started watching Orange is the New Black. It's pretty good, but I thought it was going to be a bit funnier. It's still a very clever show and the characters are so vivid. My favorites are Red, Morello and Crazy Eyes. Alex kinda pisses me off, I guess it's because the actress usually plays those pretentious types and I associate this with her. And the main chick is kinda...meh, but she has her moments. I always feel so bad for Jason Biggs's characters. I think his situation here beats dating Cristina Ricci in Anything Else. Bitches everywhere, man.
  • Check out new EW cover featuring Amy and Nick Dunne's wedding picture. It's nice but what the hell did they do to Rosamund's teeth? It's like with Ross in that Friends episode he left the whitening gel for too long. Hopefully we'll get a new poster soon, please just one good poster for this movie. That's all I want.
  • EW also released another, quite horrific version of this photo along with a new look at Matthew and Anne Hathaway in Interstellar.
  •  I'm rewatching Sex and the City (yes, along with Ally McBeal and Shameless). It's the best. Also isn't Steve the cutest? Miranda is kinda a bitch. I mean she is a cool character on her own but when she is in a relationship....I hate when women emasculate men and don't let them be romantic or sweet or supportive. Miranda is the kind of a person who would go on 10 minute rant that she is a successful strong woman if a man bought her flowers because how dare he do something like that. I just don't get that kind of behavior. Women can be successful and strong and still let their men spoil them. They don't exclusively have to be vicious bitches who hate spooning. Who the fuck hates spooning?
  • Anyways Samantha is always the best:
  • I was going to see Noah this weekend but then the weekend got away from me. I may catch it this week, because I plan on watching at least one movie per week (which doesn't include Stephen, to maintain some pretense of sanity, oh who am I kidding?), I do most of my studying at work so basically after 8h of work and studying (seriously I don't even stop when I eat) I just come home and collapse in front of the screen while Gustav jumps on me and demands more food.
  • I have so much to catch up on including 2 months worth of Conan episodes. I should probably stop sleeping altogether. Yet again.
  • I finished Dark Places. Overall it's a great book, terrific atmosphere but the final reveals and the finale...let's say one of the reveals was cool but the answer to the whole mystery felt like deus ex machina and it was a let down. Also the whole finale was a bit cliche - you know - heroine is hiding, bad guys chase her. But overall the book was definitely worth reading. I'm already midway Sharp Objects and it's so disturbing. Gillian Flynn is really a fascinating writer.
  • I haven't written about American Horror Story upcoming new season Freak Show for a while and there are so many exciting news there - Neil Patrick Harris is rumoured to be in the show, Wes Bentley joined the cast and John Carrol Lynch is playing the killer clown. Also Jyoti Amge, the world's smallest woman (2 ft 0.6 in) has joined the cast. Here she is with Jessica Lange, who looks stinkingly young here. Except for the hands. I'm not gonna sit here and pretend they are not scary.
  • Fisti reviews Guardians of the Galaxy and he tells the Avengers to suck it. Chris Evans is coming to grab you, man.
  • Brittani catches us up on True Blood. Apparently Jason is tied up in a dungeon. What else is new?
  • Angela wrote a beautiful review for Under the Skin
  • Ruth reviews Zodiac
  • m.brown writes about Philadelphia
  • Irene reviews The Hunt
  • Alex wrote a beautiful post after hearing of Robin Williams' passing
  • So apparently Chris Evans likes to do this thing. Enter tumblr:

    1. Well, since guys like to do that to women and often get slapped in the face. I think it's only fair for guys to finally touch each other to show women that they're not really jerks. I guess Chris Evans likes man-boobies.

      Samantha was always my favorite character of that show. The less we talk about the films, the better.

      1. I liked the first SATC movie but the second one was such a disaster :/

    2. John Carrol Lynch is playing a killer clown? Holy shit, I'm so pumped for that show now. Thanks so much for the link and the comment, I really appreciate it!

    3. Thanks for the link love Sati! Fun RF as always, esp all your fan-girling w/ Dillane. Methinks you'd enjoy Savage Grace, well surely all the Dillane scenes :D

      Mwahahaha, I did see Idris' pics on tumblr, I LOVE his tweet about that. He's got a sense of humor and man is he HOT or what!

      That Gone Girl cover is beautiful in a very creepy way. Heh, I hate it when they whiten people's teeth to the point that they look like a freakin' alien!

      Ahah so Chris Evans is into man boobs... apparently :)

      1. You're welcome! I'm gonna see it tonight, I got so hooked with SATC rewatch it was 4am before I finished the last season so the day escaped me :)

        His sense of humour is awesome :P

        It's insane. What's wrong with human teeth?:D

        He is definitely into that :P

    4. Thank you very much for the link, even though I veered way off course in that post.

      As for this RF? Awesome as always. I think we may have a record for dick-talk, though the unfortunate 'angry wiener' discussion from months back may have it beat. '

      And damn it, Pratt is the man.

    5. I think you're doing a pretty singularly good job of getting me psyched for Gone Girl and Interstellar!
      I just recently finished Orange is the New Black and Morella and Red are still my favourite characters. If it helps Taylor Schilling's character improves quite a lot in the second season.Great post once again :)

      Thank you so much for the link Sati. It means a lot!

      1. Gone Girl is gonna be amazing, as for Interstellar I'm not sure but I bet Zimmer's score and McConaughey are going to be enough to make it worthwhile.

        Oh that's good to know, Piper is kinda annoying at the moment, I'm on 2x02

        You're welcome, loved the review!

    6. ...can I offer up my left boob to Chris Evans?

      Stephen Dillane full frontal nudity. I'm curious, I hope you gif that. lol

      I like that Gone Girl poster, I already want to slap Amy in it!

      Idris Elba seems hilarious on Twitter, and the title to that article was hilarious.

      Thank you for the link! :)

        Oh I saw some screencaps of that already, it's extremely impressive :)

        Amy does look unhinged in that one, I'm loving it.

        You're welcome! :)

    7. First, thanks again for the link!

      You need to just sit down and watch Noah already! I mush know your thoughts...I MUST!!!
      Chris Pratt is giving me life right now. I'm pretty determined to become him now. Like...seriously.
      I really like 44 Inch Chest, mostly because I have a weird crush on Winstone...but he's on fire there so...yeah...love it.
      I need Gone Girl in my life right now.

      1. You're welcome!

        Haha, I'm probably gonna hate it, you know? Hopefully Aronofsky made it into a good movie.

        You should check out 44 Inch Chest if only to know who Stephen is!

    8. Happy you're watching OITNB! Those are some of my favourite characters too, and in season two you'll know more about them, it's great. I also like Sophia and Caputo; I think in the end it's impossible not to love them all, at one point.

      Piper really is a bit of a bore in general, but I think she's supposed to be that way because other characters frequently point that out... Still, idk what it is with weak main characters these days.

      1. The characters are really great and quite likable except for those crazy Christian chicks. I'm also not a fan of the one who banged that sweet guard and got pregnant.

        That's true, the supporting ones are usually so much more interesting.

    9. Those Interstellar picture are quite boring. They're definitely trying to keep that movie under wraps until November.

      By the grace of book gods, I have not come across any Gone Girl spoilers....I need to find a copy, FAST.

      Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda were incredibly frustrating; some of the guys they dated were creeps but the guys who were normal, the girls still treated them like shit. Samantha was the best.

      1. They are but I agree they are just trying not to spoil things :)

        The book is just excellent, I think it may already be one of my all time favorites.

        Samantha was fair and appreciative at least. These 3 could be so awful to men and then they wondered why the universe was unkind to them. Ugh.

        Delete
      2. I agree; Samantha never really judged a book by its over unless the sex was unsatisfying; but she was into at least trying things out with people. If a guy was an inch off their ideal height, Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda would just drop 'em.

        Delete
      3. Charlotte especially, what an entitled bitch. And she was a horrible mother, throwing a hissy fit at her small children because they stained her pants, ugh, so terrible.

        Delete
    10. I must find out what you think about Noah. I liked it very much especially the fact that it is questioning the whole thing about believing in God and if he is just or not. In the movie whatsoever, he doesn't seem just AT ALL, so why should people follow him? You will find out after you watch it.

      1. I hope I'll like it, Aronofsky did direct my all time favorite movie - Black Swan, but I am so against the Catholic Church and all of that this story is just not this appealing to me. It's their gospel after all.

      2. Don't count so much on that. In some countries the movie projections were banned, so...

        Delete
      3. Well if they changed it and there are no homophobic messages I may like it. I heard something of movie condemning people who eat meat and I do eat meat so...well, who knows, once I find 3h of time we'll see :)

    11. Oh my gosh ... that Idris Elba photo and tweet is hilarious. So that's how you get a lot of Twitter followers, huh?

      You have convinced me to read Sharp Objects. I did like Gone Girl. Also, I enjoyed your comments on 44 Inch Chest. It really did have some terrific moments.

      Finally, thanks for the link!

    12. unfortunately the stain of the the satc movies made me forget the love i had for the show especially the first couple of seasons.

    13. Great rambler! I'm so excited for Freak Show, hopefully it will be better than the mess that was Coven.

      The supporting characters on OITNB are much better than Piper I feel :/

      I like all of the Sex and the City women, but Samantha was by far the best. Whenever Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte would act so terribly to men, and then wonder why their lives were so unfair, I got really annoyed.

      I cannot WAIT to see your TGWTDT post!!

      1. Oh Coven was so badly written. It was fun but good God that script was all over the place.

        So much better! She is just so....weird. And not in a good way. The way she treats her boyfriend is so awful.

        They were such bitches at times. Guys were so kind to them and they would whine about it. Especially Miranda. Ugh.

        Oh thank you! It will be up in a couple of hours.

    14. Wow, that's quite the cast in 44 Inch Chest. Right now I'm at the point where I will watch Ian McShane in everything -- I'm going to chalk that up to my current Deadwood obsession, hah.

      That Idris Elba tweet is hilarious. That guy is too cool.

      Glad you're digging Orange Is the New Black! Alex gets on my nerves, too, but I'm a big fan of the rest of the cast. I think the second season is even better.

      1. Deadwood is the best! It's my all time favorite show and McShane is such a fantastic actor.

        He is so, so cool! :)

        I'm still on 2x03 but it's promising!

    15. Why have I never heard of 44 Inch Chest? It sounds great!

      The Interstellar hype is killing me! I hope the letdown isn't severe.
