  • So, some fame whoring dipshit put up a video that is spliced clips from Endgame containing major spoilers. I haven't watched it but of course I accidentally stumbled onto some already.

    10 best performances in Quentin Tarantino's films

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, April 16, 2019 , , , , , , , 18 Comments

    I recently rewatched almost all of Tarantino's films - other than Death Proof because seeing it once was enough - and I decided to finally rank my favorite performances in his films. It wasn't easy and a lot of great ones - like Lucy Liu's O-Ren Ishii - didn't make the cut - but it was also lots of fun to go back and appreciate that amazing work. So here we go:

  • We have first teaser for new Star Wars. Episode 9's title is Rise of the Skywalker and the footage is pretty good but the real HYPE is that Palpatine is back. He was the most fun part of the prequels. J.J. Abrams is amazing. Rian TrollEdgeLord left this franchise basically a bag of feces on fire and now J.J. managed to make people excited again. Amazing.

    Visual Parallels: A Simple Favour + Gone Girl

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, April 7, 2019 , , 28 Comments

    David Fincher's Gone Girl is one of my all time favorite movies. And then last year we had the unexpected pleasure of witnessing Paul Feig's wickedly delightful A Simple Favour. These films have many similar elements so it was very easy to come up with that pair for Visual Parallels. We have a cunning, beautiful woman who decides to make a life for her husband difficult, we have a sweet, naive character who unknowingly helps her with her plot, we have a disturbing murder sequence and we have worrisome past of our cunning villain revealed.

  • Avengers: Endgame tickets went on sale and pretty much broke the internet. There is also new TV spot. Oh God, the hype levels now! I got my ticket for Friday 26th. Please just don't kill Thor.
  • Meanwhile Hemsworth is out there, uploading stuff like this on his instagram.
  • I think he wants people to actually die before they get to see the movie, there is no other explanation for this filth.
  • It was Robert Downey Jr.'s 54th (!) birthday yesterday and Chris and Tessa recorded a sweet birthday message.
  • Here's brilliant artwork depicting Angelina Jolie as Sersi, one of The Eternals. I really like the idea of Marvel casting a woman in their 40's to led a franchise so hopefully this is the part she is actually up for. Also having read a bit about the character it would be so cool if she played Sersi because she is giving me some serious 90's, wild, hedonistic and crazy Angelina vibes.

    Screaming Sunday: 10 best horror films since 2010

    We are witnessing a wonderful time for horror movies. It seems like every year there are several that cause a lot of excitement and end up being very worthy inclusions to the "best of" horror genre. With Us, a movie which I thought was executed wonderfully but the writing was mediocre, getting a lot of attention I thought I'd list the 10 best horror films released since 2010. Here we go:

  • We have a release date for Deadwood movie! May 31!
  • The fuck? I thought this guy had more class than his fanbase, but clearly not. He sounds unhinged and so, so simple. WB should take his producer credits away from upcoming movies, he keeps giving them bad name and still makes money off them. 
  • Here's new poster for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. It says "May" right there. I tweeted Netflix if that means they also drop it in May and they didn't answer me. This is my hell.
  • Update: For once my country came through and we are getting the movie in cinemas on May 10! YEY! I'm so gonna be there having inappropriate reactions.
  • Also this is Zac's next project. Why is it animation again?! Hiding this face from the audience is a crime!

    Us

    (spoilers!)

    When I first saw Get Out I liked it a lot but it oddly didn't make a huge impression on me. Howeve,r recently I rewatched the film again and then again and upon subsequent viewings my mind was blown by how clever and intricate the script is. Every moment, every shot, every line has a purpose and pretty much everything that happens in the movie obeys the logic of the universe the film is set in. It's one of the most brilliant scripts I've ever seen unfold on the sceen. The more you think about Get Out, the more you like it. Unfortunately, it's the opposite with Us.

  • Yes, it is Thursday but I'm seeing Us tomorrow evening so I will probably be too tired/scared to do anything after it, so enjoy early RF!
  • Here is absolutely awful first poster for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. What the hell? How do you release THIS as the first poster? Pitt looks like he died and someone stuffed him and DiCaprio looks like he is posing for a bunch of 20 year old models he is about to choose from and bring to his yacht.
