  • So do I win the Internet this week or what?
  • We are going to start with the best part first because just look at this cover --->
  • That's right. Aquaman marketing is finally happening big time and I have never in my life been less productive than this week.
  • That cover is amazing and Amber Heard is seriously so pretty I may be looking at her here more than at Jason.
  • Look at this. The marketing department is trying to off me BEFORE I ACTUALLY SEE THE GODDAMN TRAILER.
  • Tomorrow is gonna be the greatest day for me since.....I don't know when. There's gonna be a panel during Comic Con and the cast and oh captain, my captain! James Wan are also gonna do Conan's show which will air on Sunday.

    Sharp Objects 1x02 Dirt

    By Sati. Wednesday, July 18, 2018 , 10 Comments

    (spoiler-free!)

    The second episode of Sharp Objects is spookier and even better than the series' premiere. There are truly hard to watch scenes, especially detective Willis talking to the coroner about the recent murder victim and Camille's flashbacks of her painful memories. As all of this is going on the central relationship between Camille and her mother Adora grows even more tense.

    Jason Momoa is Aquaman in the stunning first poster for the film!

    *crying noise*
    *excited dolphin sounds*
    *shouting*

    Look at this beauty.

    This is a confirmation that the release date - December 21 - stays. Mary Poppins recently moved but WB must really have confidence in Aquaman since they are sticking to the original date.

    Also we have set reports - 1,2,3. So please go and read them as I fill the tub with ice and lie in it for a while.

    (the first trailer for the movie is going to be shown at Comic Con this Saturday and will be released online immediately after)

  • Trailer for Life Itself including Oscar Isaac in absolutely nightmarish Vincent Vega co-splay. People keep raving about the script for that thing so hopefully it's good. 
  • Also look at that dog. Oscar is actually the second most adorable thing in that gif.

    Sharp Objects 1x01 Vanish

    By Sati. Tuesday, July 10, 2018 , 16 Comments

    (spoiler-free!)

    Sharp Objects is my favorite book by Gillian Flynn. I read all of her published novels while awaiting the movie adaptation of Gone Girl four years ago and this novel was by far the best read out of the things she has written. Flynn is extremely gifted when it comes to creating complex, dark female characters, not just the protagonists but the supporting women in her novels too. It's such a unique thing when for years it was only the men who had the right to be damaged and fight their demons and when women were expected to be perfect and pristine.

    The story follows beautiful, smart and very damaged Camille Preaker (Amy Adams). Camille comes from a small town -Wind Gap in Missouri. She left the town eight years ago but now her editor sends her back there to write a story. A year ago a corpse of a young girl was found and now another girl is missing. Camille reluctantly agrees to take the assignment and goes back and as she does, so do the demons she has been battling her entire life.

  • I'll keep it brief today since it seems everyone, including the readers (ekhem, 7 comments last week, ekhem! I slave and I perv and for what?!) are on vacation.

    (344) The Wasp slayed + links

    By Sati. Friday, June 29, 2018 20 Comments
  • Evangeline Lily slayed. She actually majorly slayed as she is getting standout notices in Ant-Man and the Wasp reviews. I cannot believe it's 5 more weeks before I see the movie.

    Season 2 of Westworld is a huge disappointment

    By Sati. Wednesday, June 27, 2018 , 8 Comments

    With the largely negative reactions to the finale and the ratings dropping throughout the entire season, people keep comparing what happened to Westworld with what happened to True Detective - great first season, disappointing second season. I actually liked season 2 of True Detective (Rachel McAdams' amazing performance in particular) so this one was an even bigger drop in quality for me. The truth is that this season of Westworld was a massive let down.

    (343) Never Enough! + links

    By Sati. Friday, June 22, 2018 22 Comments
  • Since this RF is as usual going to be filled with hot dudes I'm delighted that Gal Gadot shared stunning picture of herself in costume from Wonder Woman 1984 so at least I have something for my straight male readers to enjoy this week.
  • And that's Mario.
  • His pants probably flew off when he saw this.
  • So after Solo's disastrous box office performance Disney is putting all the spin offs on hold...except for Rian Johnson's trilogy. If they are trying to put everyone off this franchise they are doing an exceptional job. 
  • What on Earth are Carell and Zemeckis doing? The story is very cool but that execution seems like way too much, not to mention that animation looks creepy as hell. The trailer is beyond corny and that has gotta be the worst use of music in trailer in months, at least since that terrible use of Believer in Murder in the Orient Express. It's so goddamn on the nose I actually cringed. Reddit had a field day with this trailer:

    Screaming Sunday - Hereditary

    By Sati. Sunday, June 17, 2018 , , 14 Comments
    Movie rating - 81/100
    Plot:  When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.
    The heroes: Graham family, trying to figure out just what the hell is happening.
    The antagonists: Among others the sound Charlie makes which you will not be able to unhear.
    Best scene: It involves a car.
    Oh-oh something's not right line: Who is going to take care of me when you die?
    What makes it so great? There are multiple scenes where something frightening is on the screen but there is no 'look!' signal from the director. No loud music. No zoom. Nothing that would happen in 9 out of 10 other horror films out there to draw your attention to the nightmarish element of the shot.

  • Did you miss me?
  • Yes, the marketing for Aquaman is finally here. And that right there is the finest journalism since TMZ wrote about Jason pumping gas. And yes, we are going to spend a lot of room in this RF on it. But let's start with something else.

    The impressive first trailer for Luca Guadagnino's "Suspiria" is here

    By Sati. Monday, June 4, 2018 , , 22 Comments
    Luca Guadagnino, who bored me half to death last year with the tale of a peach and Armie Hammer's relentless Oscar thirst is back and this time he made something that may actually interest me - a remake of the classic horror film Suspiria.
