  • (Here's me and Gustav serving you Xmas chic if you haven't seen it on my twitter yet)
  • I just can't with 2016. Is there anyone out there who is going to tell me this year isn't cursed? Princess Leia goes to hospital practically on Christmas Eve, dies few days afterwards and her mother passes away while planning her funeral. George Michael whose Last Christmas has been playing around Christmas Time since the 80's dies on Christmas Day. And now I read the worlds oldest panda died too. It's too much.

    2016 is officially the worst year ever. Not only a whole bunch of awful and tragic stuff happened but with the exception of The Witch every single movie I was waiting for and had its very own header on this website sucked. The Revenant. Suicide Squad. And now this.

  • What the fuck HFPA. I can kinda see (though I cannot understand or forgive) how Ed Harris wasn't nominated (one category for supporting actors from all TV things) but Anthony Hopkins? What the hell do you have to be on to watch Westworld and not nominate him? This is just a disgrace.

    Westworld 1x10 The Bicameral Mind

    By s. Tuesday, December 6, 2016 15 Comments
    Well bravo, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. I practically live on the subreddit for that show and I can tell you that from what I have seen not a single person predicted the ending of Westworld's season finale. Hell, I made some guesses and I was spectacularly wrong.

    For 9 weeks people had 7 days between each episode and they used that time to form theories, look for clues, assume where it was all going. And while we predicted the reveal that the man with the charisma of a wash cloth (no offense but seriously what the hell?) will turn into Ed never-take-off-that-tuxedo-sir Harris, we hardly predicted anything else.

    This week largely focused on Dolores and Bernard. Despite me having some massive issues with characterization of William I'd say this was my favorite episode so far. The last 20 minutes of it were pure brilliance in every single possible way.

  •  Fuckin' tumblr is ageist as hell. Rodrigo Santoro gets naked and handcuffed to bed and the gifs are everywhere. But the above are the only ones of MiB from this episode I could find. Not that he got naked and handcuffed to bed. I'm just saying, what the hell are you people gifing? The scene I am about to whine about has nothing to do with the above, but fuck it, I'm leaving this as it is.

    Westworld 1x08 Trace Decay

    By s. Tuesday, November 22, 2016 12 Comments

    This week in Westworld things were a little less depressing than last week when we got the ultimate episode of doom and gloom. Unfortunately, the writing leaves a lot to be desired this week and I ain't talking about the two dumb technicians. Dumb is possible to explain. You know what is not possible to explain? Big ass maze showing up in the field for no reason with Ed Harris standing there probably looking at it (we're not even sure), mesmerized, also for no comprehensible reason. I gave it a chance assuming that it is me who is stupid but after asking on reddit and getting no satisfactory answer I'm gonna assume that what is stupid here is the writing for this one particular sequence.

    But let's start with everything else:

    So first of all kids, don't watch this show drunk. I am currently on my holidays but I didn't know the Americans turned their clocks back or whatever so instead of 2 AM the episode aired on 3 AM my time. By that time I was smashed. I still watched it but man did I not got anything. Fortunately I blocked out that dead dog shot. Unfortunately I still had to see it upon rewatching.

  • Westworld ratings dropped again. What the hell? This episode had Dolores shooting these guys and Ed Harris and Anthony Hopkins in one scene together and less than 2 mln people watched it. For shame, USA.
  • We are halfway through this season and HBO still hasn't announced the second one. HBO get your shit together, order more and advertise it everywhere. I am doing a better job promoting that show than the network does.

    Westworld 1x05 Contrapasso

    By s. Monday, October 31, 2016 6 Comments
    Last night's episode of Westworld is hailed as the best one yet by majority of the reviewers but since I am shallow as hell I did like the pure old Western fun and the jail break sequence of last week a little more than Contrapasso. That said this episode took us perhaps the furthest down the park and ironically we didn't spend a moment in the main town of Sweetwater.

    Westworld 1x04 Dissonance Theory

    By s. Tuesday, October 25, 2016 7 Comments
    This is my favorite episode so far. The show took it easy on the whole mindfuck aspect of it this week and focused on good old fun. I sincerely hope you all watched it on Sunday instead of The Walking Gorefest.

    Soooo damn much happened in this episode that instead of going through it scene by scene I'll just split this recap into what happened in each storyline. My least favorite scenes were Dolores' and though they were all intriguing perhaps her arc is just not as thrilling as whatever is going on with Man in Black and Maeve. Anyways Dolores is having another conversation with Bernard and he tells her of the game - the maze. He tells her that if she can get to the center of it, she can be free.

    New episode of Westworld was definitely the most confusing one yet. I sit here, feeling dumb, waiting till someone responds to my questions on reddit or our board.

    We open with another one of the secret chats between Dolores and Bernard. Bernard has a gift for her - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He asks Dolores to read several passages and wants to know what she thinks about them. He also tells her he used to read this book to his son. We then see Dolores wake up and start her daily loop.

    Welcome to the nightmare.

    This week we were made privy to another secret of Westworld - turns out Bernard is having private chats with Dolores. His voice also wakes her up and guides her and in the last scenes of the episode we see Dolores find a gun - a gun that is most likely capable of shooting guests.

    And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, 
    Which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey
    Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
    And in the taste confounds the appetite.
    Therefore love moderately. Long love doth so.
    Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow. 

    - Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, scene 6
    It seems that after some trouble (trouble thy name is Vinyl) HBO finally landed their next great hit - the first episode of Westrworld premiered to 3,3 mln audience last Sunday. Will it continue to have such a big audience? I'm not sure. While watching the fantastic premiere I was often reminded of another disturbing big budget HBO show - Carnivale. Because of huge cost and not big viewership the visionary series was cancelled after merely two seasons. Westworld's first episode sparked so many theories and ideas after only one episode I have never seen anything like it when it comes to HBO show. Hopefully the audience chooses to engage in this mysterious, puzzling narrative instead of finding it too complex for their liking.

  • Prince George should just rule this planet. Have you seen this? It's amazing! Also how big is Charlotte already? And the dress and the shoes! That moment with Kate descending the stairs, though - Jesus, I can barely walk in heels like on the normal sidewalk and she is walking down the stairs and carrying a child.
  • And yesterday they played with bunnies, bubbles and balloons! Adorable alert! YEY!
  • Meanwhile George's aunt cannot afford Adele. You'd think Adele would play anyway, it's pretty nice publicity to play at Douchess' sister wedding for free.
  • Speaking of Adele, here's Emily Blunt looking like thinner Adele on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter.  She also said some garbage about her least favorite word being 'likable'. OK then. The Girl on the Train opens here next week and in spite of the shameless 'here's new JLaw embrace her' promo of this Haley Bennett person and the laughable appearance of Blunt who is supposed to be playing an alcoholic trainwreck I may actually go see it. Unless that dreadful Kanye song that was featured in the trailer is in the movie. Then fuck off, you'll get none of my money.

  • Bad news - J-boo is in Tokyo to shoot The Outsider which means 1. we didn't get Harrison/J-boo selfie 2. his part in Blade Runner 2 must be crazy short because he was there for like 10 days most of which was spent on climbing in the gym and photographing stuff
  • I saw Lonely Hearts over the weekend. In spite of it not getting wide American release which is usually a red flag it was actually a decent movie. Like, I didn't just fast forward to Jared's scenes. Yeah, it reeked of B-talent behind the camera trying to do something with A-list actors (well somewhat) but failing but comparing to some of the stuff Jared made (*coughs* Highway *cough and spits blood* Alexander) this was watchable. Jared - awful mustache and horrible hair in this combo - played a dude who would prey on lonely women and steal their money. Then he run into Salma Hayek's character who was a total psycho and they fell in love and she basically pushed him over the edge and they started killing people together. And Travolta and Gandolfini played the cops hunting them. Jared was very good in the role but reading about actual people it's a shame they didn't deepen the subject. Hayek was miscast as hell but she gave a pretty good performance.
