(433) Hiatus + links

By sati (harlequinade) Friday, March 13, 2020 23 Comments
  • The Coronavirus situation is now extremely serious. Even though we only have 58 cases so far, the cinemas and schools here in Poland are closed. They called off the exams I was supposed to start in 11 days and have been studying for for a year. A YEAR. And 10h per day over the last 3 weeks. Just few more days and I'd be almost confident I'll pass. But now? I am furious. 
  • I decided to put the website on hiatus. I don't know when the new date for my exams will be but I have nothing in draft, I have so much studying to do for God knows how much longer and now I have to go back to work because I sent request to cancel my leave since who knows when the exams will take place. So I don't know when I'll be back posting things. I'm just so tired. I can't deal with drafting posts and reading and commenting on people's websites about movies right now. I'll still be on twitter and letterboxd but not much.

  • Due to the virus, new Bond movie release has been pushed to Thanksgiving. This is insane because it came completely out of nowhere - Daniel Craig is hosting SNL tomorrow and he was supposed to be on Fallon's show yesterday (apparently they called the talk show appearance off and had to get Seth Meyers instead). This can create domino effect with all the other movies moving too. I hope they deal with this scary situation soon, we already have a case in Poland.

  • Well good news is that WB is already doing some promo things for Wonder Woman 1984 so that's a good sign. Maybe the marketing for this movie won't be terrible. Meanwhile, Sonic easily dethroned BoP in its second box office week. It's disgraceful how they botched that release and it won't be forgotten.

    Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, February 9, 2020 , , , , , , , 16 Comments

    I love Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel and I think they are both wonderful movies about terrific heroines. However, I cannot fully connect with them because, while they kick ass, they are so very noble and kind. Diana grew up on a paradise island, surrounded only by loving and supportive women, and Carol doesn’t fully remember her past, which explains why they aren't pissed off. Because if they knew what we know and experience what we do, they'd be very, very angry.

  • So remember how 2 months ago I rewatched In Secret and my sinuses blew up? So, uh, funny story...
  • 10 days of antibiotics and I now think there is definitely a link between my health and thirst. But on the upside I saw plenty of movies this week.

    There were so many wonderfully shot movies in 2019, making my cinematography line up was a bit of a nightmare. It was easier with this list, seeing how many choices I could include. And 2 weeks from now, my final best and worst of 2019 list will be published, this time with record 66 categories!

  • Adam Driver was so funny hosting SNL. I loved his monologue and the opening bit was kinda ballsy. The science guy and Slow sketches were freaking hilarious.
