(321) The Disaster Franco + links

  • I think Mettel and Sonia started something here. This should be how we begin and end every RF. In our heads. Otherwise the government will shut me down. 
  • (do you guys like the new header? oh, I loved working on it)
  • Now, we all know I usually start with the happy portion and then gradually, bullet point by bullet point, I drag you all into stupid celebrity gossip, my shitty film reviews and horrific darkness of how terrible the people in the industry can be. Since that last portion is incredibly long this week, I decided to actually open with that, so we begin with the awful and then gradually progress towards me talking about how beautiful and amazing Oscar Isaac is. Imagine falling into the toilet from Trainspotting and emerging on the other side. And there is an angel there waiting for you with a song.
  • Man, do I know how to sell the garbage I write, huh?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    (spoilers!!!)

    Rian Johnson has really accomplished something incredible in the newest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi. Something different. Something unique. In that he made Star Wars movie that is so boring even if you paid me money I'd not sit through it again. I'm not sure what is more baffling - that a film from the director of Looper is so poorly made or that a Star Wars film is such a poor spectacle.

    10 more great uses of songs in movie/TV series trailers

    By Sati. Wednesday, December 13, 2017 , , 14 Comments
    Last week we looked at 10 trailers which used songs to great effect. Since I don't wanna trash The Snowman joylessly in a review of it and would rather just whine about it in RF BUT I also want to have at least some content around here, let's look at 10 more:

  • I'm continuing my insane quest. On Friday (and on Wednesday) I rewatched The Wolf of Wall Street (livetweet - 1,2,3) which is one of my favorite films of all time. The script of that thing is amazing. The film is so funny, obviously the ludes scene had me on the floor laughing but the confrontation in the parking lot with Jon and Jonah is just insane and my pick for the second funniest scene in the film. Oh my God, the emperor of Fucksville came down from Fucksvlle to give me a pass!

    10 great uses of songs in movie/TV series trailers

    By Sati. Wednesday, December 6, 2017 , , 12 Comments
    This is just off the top of my head and by no meants "Greatest of all Time" kind of list because there are just way too many examples like that to choose from. One of the things I love about trailers is when they use the music to great effect (such as the recent Rampage trailer with awesome use of Smashing Pumpkins' song). We're not talking about the epic trailer music or a well known theme from another film used to great effect (Requiem for a Dream music used in The Two Towers trailer), but just a skillful use of song. Here are some of the examples that came to mind:
