Visual Parallels: Take Shelter + The Hunt

By s. Wednesday, November 27, 2013 , , 17 Comments
Take Shelter and The Hunt don't have much in common at the first glance. But when you start looking closely similarities arise - both stories center around a man, who despite having a family and people who love him, is utterly alone with his problems. In case of Curtis, the hero of Take Shelter, he is suspecting that he is becoming mentally ill. Lucas, the protagonist of The Hunt, on the other hand has been accused of molesting a little girl in his village.

Mads Mikkelsen Appreciation

By s. Friday, November 22, 2013 24 Comments
Mads Mikkelsen
November 22, 1965 (Østerbro, Copenhagen, Denmark)

I take my work enormously seriously. When I do something it has to feel right. Everything has to be right. I’m not ambitious about my career, but I am ambitious with each job. I can be fairly annoying to work with. No compromises. Let’s put it this way: compromises are from hell

A summary? Pussy Palace, undies and George Clooney. My God, that sounds erotic.

American Horror Story: Coven - 3x06 The Axeman Cometh

By s. Thursday, November 14, 2013 4 Comments
This week's Coven brought in quite the cinematic episode. It was very focused and almost felt like a separate movie, with few scenes connected to the main story line. We open in 1919 where we meet the Axeman (Danny Huston) - New Orleans's equivalent of the Zodiac killer. The Axeman killed 8 people and wrote to the newspaper that he won't kill anyone who has jazz music playing in their house.

Angelina Jolie is pure perfection as Maleficent in the film's first trailer.

(I know I'm probably the last one to post it, but in my defense I was making the above graphic)

It's finally here. The long awaited first trailer for Disney's Maleficent. People are really excited for this one, especially for one awesome reason - Angelina Jolie. Not only was she absent from the big screen for a while now, but it's pretty damn rare that someone is literally the only right choice for a certain character. And there is no one in the world more perfect for the role of evil witch Maleficent than Jolie.

American Horror Story: Coven - 3x05 Burn, Witch, Burn!

By s. Thursday, November 7, 2013 6 Comments
This week in American Horror Story we got to see witch burning, a good old fashioned chainsaw to zombie's head action and another episode of Spalding's little corpse/starlet slapstick adventure. It was, just as it sounds, really fun.

MettelRay has started another fun blogathon - this time she is posting a list of emotions and participants can share movie scenes that caused them to have those emotions. Yesterday she posted awkwardness and fear. Instead of giving 3 examples for each, I'll give 5 examples for fear.
