(356) HERo + links

  • First trailer for Captain Marvel is here, along with the poster. It's really good but they are gonna need to really knock this out of the park. After all, she is gonna appear out of nowhere in this franchise.
  • I do love that moment where "HER" turns into "HERO". My God, I hope this literally killed some incels when they were watching this.
  • There's a cat on the poster and I need that cat to be in next Avengers and interact with Thor.

    Screaming Sunday - Mandy

    By Sati. Sunday, September 16, 2018 , , , , , , 8 Comments
    Movie rating - 84/100
    Plot: A psychodelic tale of a quiet logger named Red (Nicolas Cage) who lives a life of serenity with his wife Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), in their dream cabin in the woods. But when the leader of a deranged cult (Linus Roache, who played Batman's dad in Batman Begins and I cannot stop being shocked by it after seeing Mandy) becomes enamored with Red's wife, he and his people terrorize the couple, leaving Red spiraling into madness.The psychodelic goes full grindhouse as Red, armed with a battle axe and any drugs he can find, goes on a violent rampage, enacting his revenge on the cult in the most gruesome ways.
    The heroes: Nicolas Cage forging a battle axe as he is wearing sunglasses and a T-shirt.

    The Nun

    By Sati. Sunday, September 9, 2018 , , , , , , 13 Comments

    (spoilers!)

    The Nun is the fifth entry in The Conjuring universe and unfortunately it's the biggest disappointment in it yet. While not quite awful as the first Annabelle movie, the film is disjointed, boring and makes very little sense. In truth the only people who should pray for forgiveness here are director Corin Hardy and whoever did the rewrites on the promising script.

  • So...I turned 29 this week. 
  • I am a year away from moving into the woods and becoming a crazy old lady. 
  • As opposed to just 'crazy' and 'lady'.
  • Speaking of crazy, Brie Larson tweeted something is coming that will 'break the internet'.
  • Well, naturally people assumed it was going to be trailer for Captain Marvel. Nope. We got the usual EW cover and promo stills. 
  • Woman, calm down and tweet accordingly.
  • Where is her neck on this cover?
  • And why does she look like she is about to take a dump?
  • The photos are nice but I am not a fan of this chick. Look at this. Someone said she is the kind of a girl who when asked where the toilet is at the party replies with "I have a boyfriend" and that is so true. I wish Marvel chose someone likable particularly since this girl is about to show up out of nowhere and make the heroes we know look weak.

    Sharp Objects 1x08 Milk

    By Sati. Wednesday, August 29, 2018 , 8 Comments

    "A child weaned on poison considers harm a comfort.”

    A crucial line from the novel didn't make it into the last episode of Sharp Objects, a finale that mostly delivered and majorly surprised. And thus all of Gillian Flynn's books have been adapted (and yes, what as shame it is we didn't get Dark Places adaptation that was worthy of the novel). I've gotta say that as wonderful as Fincher's Gone Girl was Jean-Marc Vallée really did wonders here, even though you still wish for more of the scenes from the book were featured on screen.

    Sharp Objects 1x07 Falling

    By Sati. Tuesday, August 21, 2018 , 10 Comments

    (spoiler-free!)

    The penultimate, stunning episode of Sharp Objects set the stage for finale particularly for the confrontation between Camille, now barely hanging on, having lost everything with only her desire to deliver justice and protect Amma remaining, and Adora, who we all saw for the monster she truly is, in ways that book readers might not have expected.

    Sharp Objects 1x06 Cherry

    By Sati. Wednesday, August 15, 2018 , 10 Comments

    (spoiler-free!)

    Two episodes left and the things on Sharp Objects are figuratively and literally spinning out of control with our protagonist losing her grip on reality and responsible or sane behavior more and more the longer she stays in the town and the closer she gets to her sister. This episode brought a fan favorite scene - the party Camille attends with Amma. And as all the previous episodes, it did source material justice.
