Ed Harris' performances: 1992 - 2001

By Sati. Tuesday, May 23, 2017 15 Comments
It's finally time for the second out of four of my posts about all the performances of the great Ed Harris. Last month I wrote, among others, about his big screen debut, first leading role, first performance in major Oscar race contender and his great work in Glengarry Glen Ross (which was last movie featured in last post) (years: 1978 - 1992)

Now it's an even more exciting - and most successful - time in his career to focus on - his first, second and third Oscar nomination, his most well known role to date and a whole variety of characters he portrayed - from politicians and cops through psychopaths and generals to priests and alcoholic painters. There is nothing this man can't do.

  • I have been gifing Logan like a crazy person. The above, I decided, is the most beautiful moment in the movie. And ironically he is putting clothes ON in it.
  • (to be fair there was this long slow shot of his chest right before that. I just made noises while typing that sentence.)
  • It's my avatar on every message board I post on. It's insanely distracting.
  • I gifed the glasses of ovaries doom.
  • I gifed the swearing.
  • I gifed this sad shit.
  • I cannot stop. I'm even taking requests. I'm like a porn peddler.

    Visual Parallels: Logan + Mad Max: Fury Road

    By Sati. Wednesday, May 17, 2017 , , 27 Comments

    It's almost too perfect. Mad Max: Fury Road is my favorite movie from 2015 while Logan is my favorite in 2017. I do realize it's May but in my experience we only get one masterpiece per year. And Logan is that masterpiece. It's not just well done and beautifully acted film with wonderfully crafted story at the center of it, but it also truly stays with you. Just like Fury Road did.

But still on Friday it takes a lot of time to prepare the post to publish. I have been editing this motherfucker for 5h now and every time I think I'm done something new shows up on my twitter feed and I need to change it. No more. I don't care what happens. I'm publishing).

    Logan. Our Wolverine.

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 2, 2017 , , 16 Comments

    The strong, silent type. He wasn’t in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do.

    I always loved Tony Soparno's rants about the archetype of a true man. Someone who simply does the things an honorable man should do, no matter what. Someone who has his own, unspoken code and follows it.

    And I can't help but think that Tony Soprano would have loved Logan.

    We spent so many years with Logan but not until James Mangold's magnificent film which I have not been able to stop thinking for almost two months now, did we really get to see him in all of his glory. In all of his strong, silent type glory. The ultimate hero, but the hero who feels so very human. In Logan you could take his claws away and it wouldn't change much. In Logan we get to see a hero which is not made extraordinary because of his powers, his claws, or the adamantium covering his bones. We get to see that it is something else that made him so very special.

  • This has been a lovely week with so many boos doing so many beautiful things. Boo kangaroo, Jason boo and Tommy boo all did something awesome this week...oh, how blessed we are, truly. 
  • However today I have seen something truly horrific.
  • It's like I'm seeing him in Les Miserables dive into the sewage again.
  • On Saturday before my vacation was over (on the upside it is 5-day long weekend in Poland starting tomorrow. On the downside I had to actually take a day off on Tuesday because my employer didn't figure out that since Monday and Wednesday are days off it would be decent to give us the day off on Tuesday) I decided to treat myself and watch The Wolverine again.

    Dolores Claiborne

    By Sati. Monday, April 24, 2017 , , , , , , , 24 Comments
    The story goes that when Stephen King came to visit the set of Misery he was so impressed with Kathy Bates that he wrote the character of Dolores just for her. The book was quickly adapted into a wonderful film, with Bates in a lead role, the film that is sadly very underrated and didn't get the acclaim it deserves. Unlike most of King's work, Dolores Claiborne is not a horror film dealing with supernatural. However, the themes featured in the film - of domestic violence, abuse, growing old and dying are universally horrific.

  • (Checking out the videos on that instagram is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Trust me. The side effect is that you are going to be insanely distracted...from all of...this perfection. And for a long time...so maybe watch the videos on Friday evening and then lie down for the rest of the weekend.)

    Ed Harris' performances: 1978 - 1992

    By Sati. Monday, April 17, 2017 22 Comments
    Ed Harris has been giving us wonderful performances in films and television for more than 40 years. It kills me that most of them go unnoticed, in spite of him being a familiar face to so many movie fans because of his appearances in films like The Hours, Truman Show, A Beautiful Mind or Apollo 13. That's why, as I am getting close to having seen all of his movies, I decided to write about each and every single one of his performances he gave since his movie debut (excluding his voice performances). It was not always easy to find those films, sometimes I only had youtube or video ripped from VHS to go by, but somehow I managed to find them all.

    I will focus on his roles since his feature film debut but also include the ones in TV movies and TV series. That's altogether - in 39 years - 76 performances and that's not including his stage work.

    In this first (out of 4) post I will look at the years 1978 - 1992 and 20 performances Ed Harris gave during that time from his very first role on the big screen that was just one minute long through him playing medieval performers, astronauts, abusive husbands, ordinary guys meeting underwater aliens and frustrated working men.

    The Best (and Worst) of 2016

    By Sati. Monday, April 10, 2017 35 Comments
    Best movie: The Handmaiden
    (2. Hell or High Water 3. The Nice Guys 4. The Conjuring 2 5. The Witch 6. The Neon Demon 7. Manchester by the Sea 8. Hidden Figures 9. Eddie the Eagle 10. Jackie)

    There was only one movie that got 10/10 from me last year and that was the magical Handmaiden. Filled with twists and turns, it's a movie that has everything - great, gripping story, wonderful performances, beautiful visual side, terrific score and characters you care about. If you haven't seen it yet, do. It will enchant you.

  • This is gonna be short(er) RF because I am exhausted. I have my 5 days off for Easter soon but when I woke up today half dead and then had another charming day where by the 9 AM I was fantasizing of raging fire starting in my office and annihilating it all, myself included, I figured I need to take a day off tomorrow too. So RF on Thursday your time this week and since it's usually Friday that brings gossip and news this is mostly gonna be focused on...well, the usual. 
  • What is up with the few comments lately? I sat my ass down and wrote, awful and half-baked Ghost in the Shell review and only 3 of you guys wrote something. Guys, come on. Encourage me to write more. Otherwise this entire blog is gonna be just something that will be evidence in the court of law when Ed Harris and/or Hugh Jackman inevitably sue me.

    Ghost in the Shell

    By Sati. Tuesday, April 4, 2017 , , , , , , , , , 12 Comments
     (spoilers !!!)

    The studio executives these days are becoming progressively dumber. I think we can all agree that the lead role in this movie went to Scarlett Johansson because the studio thought it needed star power to make the movie successful. Unless international box office saves it, Ghost in the Shell is a bomb. Scarlett, who is largely the most profitable actress on the planet due to her involvement in Marvel cinematic universe (where she really doesn't do much) is not the person who people go to see in the movies. I really, really love it that's it's Melissa McCarthy who is probably the biggest draw out of female actresses right now.

  • Happy Friday! Here's Hugh dubsmashing to Katy Perry. 
  • I just want to say to my dear readers before they read this RF...may God have mercy on your souls. There are two themes this week. First one is: Hugh Jackman is such a gift to humanity and we are not worthy of him. Second is: most men other than him deserve to be whacked in a dick with a tennis racket. I'll explain the latter later on in the post. The former needs no explanation.

    When few seconds into Logan I saw the character I've only seen in toned down, PG-13 scenes tear people apart in violent and bloody fashion, I knew I was in for something refreshing. When I was reminded of Fury Road during the sequence where Logan is trying to drive through the fence, I knew I was in for something great. But when during one sequence while I still haven't composed myself after I cried I suddenly started laughing, I knew I was witnessing something really special.

  • Oh my God you guys. I was almost killed by imdb trivia page and google search this week.
  • I was checking out trivia on some of the Ed's movies I have left to watch. I was reading about Swing Shift and this is what I read "In an early scene, Ed Harris, clad only in a towel wrapped around his waist, plops down on a chair. For a split second his genitals are fully exposed. This scene somehow evaded the censors (and in a PG rated film) and in the first video release, the scene is intact. The scene has now disappeared from later releases."
