  • (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.)
  • Also welcome to the world where Girls is finally over! The evil has been defeated! Rejoice! Rejoice!!!
  • So I did another triple Hugh (this sounds like a sex thing...which it kinda is) feature on Saturday.

    Ed Harris' performances: 1978 - 1992

    By Sati. Monday, April 17, 2017 20 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.
  • Seriously I'm such a nice person who routinely tweets awesome stuff to brighten people's days. Here are the pictures of boo kangaroo I tweeted this week:

    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.

  • Yep. I cannot even use spaces in tweets right anymore.
  • 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.

  • Secondly, I do hope you're about to enjoy the sickest most fun part of any RF - the pervy opening paragraphs 80% of it - because the dark forces (Sony and WB) are gathering (about to take a shit on) and are coming for our favorite things (rebooting the movies we love).

    Logan

    (spoilers!!!)

    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.

I knew the second these guys started running around behind the producers of Blah Blah Land that something was up and I actually thought maybe they read it wrong but what transpired...oh, man.

  • Second of all after last week's RF five separate women with what is clearly a great taste in men were outraged and sad I have not shared the much discussed screenshots of Ed Harris's everything in the post. You guys. Come on. The one standard I have here is not to *actually* share any dick pics.

  • 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."
  • After I regained consciousness I did the only thing I could do.

  • I had a nice week - I am staying home for the most of it. I have a cold. I actually went to work on Monday, then in the evening as I was watching The Way Back and Ed Harris was eating a dead animal with his bare hands I probably should have guessed the fact I was sweating and had a fever during that meant I had a cold. 
  • But I have a fever and sweat during all of his films so there really was no way of knowing.
  • Anyways, since Tuesday I was home which is nice because I cannot remember the last time I had time off work.
  • The biggest story this week is what Nicole Kidman wore to SAG awards. Look, parrots and this weird fabric thing on the chest aside, this is a gorgeous dress. And those parrots wouldn't even be bad. But the hair! This would look lovely with red hair yet Nicole continues to have that awful piss color. And this terrible hairstyle - this looks like something one has going on on their head before cleaning the toilet, not attending the awards.

    The Handmaiden

    By Sati. Tuesday, January 31, 2017 , , , , , , , , 21 Comments
    The Handmaiden is based on the novel "Fingersmith" by Sarah Waters The novel is set in London during the 19th century, but the film is set in Korea in the 1930s, under Japanese colonial rule. The pickpocket Sook-Hee (Tae-ri Kim) is hired by the Japanese heiress Lady Hideko to be her personal servant. Hideko is supported by her Uncle Kouzuki and the gold-digger "Count Fujiwara", who is indeed son of peasants, wants to marry her to steal her inheritance. Sook-Hee is a small-time thief of the ring of the conman "Count Fujiwara" and is sent to help him in the confidence game. But soon Hideko and Sook-Hee get close to each other and become lovers.

     I saw this movie while knowing very little about it, all I knew is that there is a conspiracy against the heiress and the girl who is pretending to be her maid falls in love with her. The twist before part 2 (the film is divided into 3 parts) really took me off guard which is very rare, but I knew the movie was fantastic long before then.

    The Academy actually did something right this year! Twice!

    By Sati. Tuesday, January 24, 2017 26 Comments
    The Oscars have done a number of terrible things today - including awarding two nominations to Passengers -  but it doesn't matter.

    I had only two Oscar dreams today. And they both came true.

    Bravo, Academy. Bravo for finally not awarding the mediocrity personified Amy Adams for doing nothing for yet another time in her career. Still, it would have been better if her terrible movie didn't score 8 (undeserved) nominations nor that the nomination for Best Actress went to Meryl Streep for her silly little Globes tirade (no one actually thinks it's just because of the performance, right?) but her missing out is glorious. Of course I cannot truly enjoy it because I keep seeing people whining about this 'snub'. How many times did someone get snubbed because of this basic blandness getting in? 2? 3? 4? 5?

  • OK guys, the next time you see a movie, before recommending it to me you really need to take a moment. If it has Ed Harris, no matter what it is (unless he kills a dog in it), go ahead. Tell me about it, I will see it. I will perv while livetweeting it. I will have a great time. But in every other case take a moment and ponder the following - 'will Sati like this? Like, really like this? Or will she watch it and find herself in need of hate-tweeting about it for at least 3 days with the addition of Ron Swanson 'this is my hell' gif'?

Oh and what I'm saying is 'treat' to get him to look at the camera. Which seems like a stupid thing to do when he is eating a gigantic pig ear.

    (269) Black Mirror + links

    By Sati. Friday, January 6, 2017 18 Comments
  •  I watched almost all episodes of Black Mirror this week. It's a truly outstanding series. I'm gonna try to make a quick post where I rank all the episodes soon but number 1 would be a hard choice between Shut up and Dance and San Junipero. I really think if San Junipero (starring Mackenzie Davis and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) was a movie people would go nuts for it. I'm thinking about doing Visual Parallels with this episode but I don't know when I get to it. I also really liked White Christmas but does Jon Hamm always play assholes? I never saw him play anyone likable. The series is so cool because other than some small Easter eggs the episodes aren't connected at all so you can watch them in whatever order you want. And the cast they assembled in the show is really amazing.
