(419) NOPE + links

  • Brand new, stunning poster for Birds of Prey. Character posters. New trailer premiered last night at the Con in Brazil at the panel attended by the cast, but it wasn't released online yet. Rumor has it it will be this month.
  • The award season is upon us with Golden Globe nominations coming on Monday. So far AFI announced their choices (absolutely awful, Game of Thrones is there but Barry isn't, Joker? OUATIH?!) and The Irishman won best film from NY film critics.
  • Stephen Graham has joined the cast of Venom 2
  • Trailer for Black Widow. Let's not pay attention to the awful one in the main role. Rachel Weisz! Florence Pugh! and of course Daddy Hopper! That CGI near the end looks extremely dodgy but other than that and the accents that's a good trailer.

    Screaming Sunday - Doctor Sleep

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, November 17, 2019 , , 14 Comments
    Rating 71/100
    Plot:  Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers as he tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
    The heroes: Grown up Danny Torrance and a capable little girl named Abra.
    The antagonists: Child murderers led by Rose the Hat, played by amazing Rebecca Ferguson.
    What makes it so great? While I didn't like this movie as much as a lot of people did, this is definitely the most competently made Stephen King's adaption in 2019. In the Tall Grass was awful, Pet Semetery was dumb as hell and, while very entertaining, It: Chapter Two is a chaotic mess. But this right here is a proper movie, with decent script, character work and editing.

  • John Legend is People's Sexiest Man Alive. Are they even aware Jason Momoa walks this Earth?!

    (spoilers!)

    I wasn't going to write a review for this because 1. the last thing I want is insecure "men" who identify with the lead character writing nonsense in my comment section 2. this movie doesn't actually deserve my - or anyone's - words, but this is entirely too long for my letterboxd so here we go. Call me a c*nt, you ain't getting published, honey.

  • Scorsese is bitching about MCU again. First his comments made sense but now as he expands on them, not only does he say things that are just plain incorrect but also he sounds petty and batshit. Obviously these films go through test screenings, his do too. The studio spends so much money on them they wanna make sure they earn them back. It's a movie business after all. And what the hell is he talking about no risks? The Lighthouse is out there in theaters, a black and white film starring two actors, which is seemingly impossible to understand without subtitles. Parasite is making insane money. The risky films are out there. It's audiences who choose to go see MCU flicks, it's not about what is there to choose from, it's about the choice people make. I don't understand why Scorsese is talking about this at all. Is there really nothing else he could be doing?

  • Full trailer for The Witcher was released and oh boy. The worst thing by far is how pristine and brand new everything looks. The props, the interiors, the armor, none of it looks lived in. You are painfully aware this is just all fake and it's actors performing on sets. Cavill is a disaster, he does OK when he is supporting but this? And they blew all the money on him so the rest of the actors are total no names. Uffff.
