35 best shots of 2017

By s. Sunday, January 28, 2018 , , , , , , , 36 Comments

Before I publish my entire Best and Worst of 2017 list - and that's gonna be next Sunday - there is still one more separate list to publish. Most of these shots are pretty self explanatory but if I had additional thoughts or explanation I added that. Here are my choices for 35 best shots of 2017:

    10 best performances in 2017

    By s. Sunday, January 21, 2018 , , , , , , 22 Comments

    Every year I think I celebrate most aspects of my favorite movies of the year properly. After all, my final list has so many categories and there's plenty of love (and hate, I think I need to create some new categories for Baby Driver this year) there. But I always felt if there is one thing I could write more about it's the outstanding performances. I always only write about winners in each of the four categories and that's not enough. So this year, for the first time ever, I decided to put all of my 20 nominees together  and choose top 10 performances out of those. And deciding between the top 2 was an absolute nightmare.

    10 best scenes in 2017

    Here we go! It's time to start my best of lists. I i still have few movies left to see before I finish my epic Best and Worst list - I think there are nearly 70 categories there this year,  including The Post and Phantom Thread, but since it's almost the time for Academy Award nominations and most bloggers are publishing their best of 2017 lists already, I decided to start with mine too, especially that I doubt any of the films I have left to watch from 2017 could get into top 10 here.

    (322) "Little pig boy comes from the dirt" + links

  • I'm gonna stick with RF format I introduced last week. First we talk about everything else and at the end it's time to fangirl hard. That way we always end on a joyful note before the weekend. And if someone accidentally stumbles on this website and just sees the front page, there is gonna be much less disturbing stuff right there for everyone to see and my boos to find out and inevitably sue me.
  • So here we go. Have a drink, smoke some weed or just....brace yourselves. This is a wild one, guys.
  • Just when I thought I cannot possibly love Sam Rockwell more he dropped an F bomb on live television.

    Miss Sloane & Molly's Game

    By s. Wednesday, January 17, 2018 , , , , , , , , , , , , 24 Comments

    "Depression and anger gave way to blinding rage at my powerlessness over the unfair whims of men"

    This month I saw two movies where the lead role was played by Jessica Chastain - terrific Miss Sloane and entertaining Molly's Game. Chastain was Golden Globe nominated for both, missed the Oscar nomination last year and who knows if she makes it next week. I decided to do a double post feature on them, because while it's Molly's Game that is getting attention right now it's a shame Miss Sloane, a much better movie, didn't get the spotlight last year.

    (321) The Disaster Franco + links

  • I think Mettel and Sonia started something here. This should be how we begin and end every RF. In our heads. Otherwise the government will shut me down. 
  • (do you guys like the new header? oh, I loved working on it)
  • Now, we all know I usually start with the happy portion and then gradually, bullet point by bullet point, I drag you all into stupid celebrity gossip, my shitty film reviews and horrific darkness of how terrible the people in the industry can be. Since that last portion is incredibly long this week, I decided to actually open with that, so we begin with the awful and then gradually progress towards me talking about how beautiful and amazing Oscar Isaac is. Imagine falling into the toilet from Trainspotting and emerging on the other side. And there is an angel there waiting for you with a song.
  • Man, do I know how to sell the garbage I write, huh?
