(285) Don't toy with us, boo kangaroo + links

By s. Friday, April 28, 2017 18 Comments
  • 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 s. Monday, April 24, 2017 , , , , , , , 25 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.

    A post shared by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on
  • I think we were using the world 'adorable' wrong before applying it ONLY to Hugh.
  • (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 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 s. 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.

  • *(this isn't just a reference to the new Thor trailer....but I trust you, dear readers, have been reading this series long enough to realize this as soon as you saw this title).
  • Last week was a relatively short RF. Well, make some coffee, people. Or have a shot of vodka. Or inject heroin in your eyeballs or whatever it is you do to endure this stupidity.
  • Cause this is gonna be as long as it is gonna be pervy. I'm not a Catholic so....forgive me for all of this kinky shit on Good Friday if you are.

    The Best (and Worst) of 2016

    By s. Monday, April 10, 2017 37 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 s. 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.
