(336) I *could* be worse + links

By Sati. Saturday, April 28, 2018 32 Comments
  • Welcome to new RF. Yes, it is Saturday. But I went to cinema in the evening yesterday so we have a 16h delay this week. 
  • This spot for Infinity War is honestly better than the film. God, what a disappointment.
  • It was funny and a huge accomplishment, I suppose, but I did not find it epic or emotional at all. The CGI in that big moment was horrendous. If you are comparing this movie to Fury Road or saying it's better than Logan you need Jesus asap.

  • I bet for the last few weeks you were thinking "how can I go on living when Sati is no longer doing inappropriate and lengthy livetweets and then featuring them in RF"?
  • My dear readers, your suffering ends today.
  • But first let's start at the bottom before we get to the top.

    A Quiet Place

    It seems like it's a new tradition in movie world to lavish an undeserved praise all over at least one horror movie a year. As great as The VVitch was it's not exactly the scariest movie since The Exorcist which some of the reviewers were claiming. Then we had It Comes the Night, which is usually winning polls for "what is the worst instance of false marketing in the last few years?" these days. And this year it's A Quiet Place.

    Visual Parallels: Wonder Woman + Captain America: The First Avenger

    By Sati. Monday, April 9, 2018 , , 27 Comments

    Both Wonder Woman ad Captain America are the most idealistic heroes in their respective universes, DCEU and MCU. Heroic, noble, compassionate and always ready to fight for the innocent in peril. While Captain America: The First Avenger is a relatively modest movie comparing to other films in MCU, Wonder Woman is so far DCEU's crowning - or only - achievement.

    Annihilation

    You dig in places till your fingers bleed 
    Spread the infection, where you spill your seed 
    I can't remember what she came here for 
    I can't remember much of anything anymore 
     She's gone, she's gone, she's gone away 
    She's gone, she's gone, she's gone away 
    Away...*

    Alex's Garland's wonderful new science fiction film Annihilation made headlines this year for quite strange reasons. The studio, Paramount - as in the studio that gave Daren Aronofsky 30 million dollars to make a movie based on a script he wrote after he, presumably, dropped acid and his eyes locked on the copy of the Bible on his bookstand - didn't have much faith in the movie. In the result, they sold the distribution rights for most of the markets to Netflix, forcing people like me to watch it at home instead of on the big cinema screen. The move proved to be misguided - the film opened to great reviews and made 3/4 of its budget in US theatrical distribution only.
