So this is the hill on which the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy wants to die on.

Good riddance.

Sharp Objects 1x03 Fix

By s. Sunday, July 29, 2018 , 8 Comments

Last episode of Sharp Objects showed quite a bit of Camille's cryptic and painful past and gave more depth - disturbing, weird and freaky depth - to both Camille's step sister, Amma and her cold mother, Adora. We also got some progress in Camille's investigation as she proves to be a more capable and relentless seeker of the truth than the city's police chief.

"Aquaman" - trailer breakdown

Yes, I know it's Thursday and by that time of the week you usually get very poorly written Sharp Objects recaps here on the Corner, but considering that Aquaman trailer dropped on Saturday and I have seen it about 1000 times already just be glad that I'm still alive (to the four people who actually read the recaps - I'll post it on Sunday).

God help us, I have thoughts about the trailer so here we go.

Sharp Objects 1x02 Dirt

By s. Wednesday, July 18, 2018 , 12 Comments


The second episode of Sharp Objects is spookier and even better than the series' premiere. There are truly hard to watch scenes, especially detective Willis talking to the coroner about the recent murder victim and Camille's flashbacks of her painful memories. As all of this is going on the central relationship between Camille and her mother Adora grows even more tense.

*crying noise*
*excited dolphin sounds*

Look at this beauty.

This is a confirmation that the release date - December 21 - stays. Mary Poppins recently moved but WB must really have confidence in Aquaman since they are sticking to the original date.

Also we have set reports - 1,2,3. So please go and read them as I fill the tub with ice and lie in it for a while.

(the first trailer for the movie is going to be shown at Comic Con this Saturday and will be released online immediately after)

Sharp Objects 1x01 Vanish

By s. Tuesday, July 10, 2018 , 21 Comments


Sharp Objects is my favorite book by Gillian Flynn. I read all of her published novels while awaiting the movie adaptation of Gone Girl four years ago and this novel was by far the best read out of the things she has written. Flynn is extremely gifted when it comes to creating complex, dark female characters, not just the protagonists but the supporting women in her novels too. It's such a unique thing when for years it was only the men who had the right to be damaged and fight their demons and when women were expected to be perfect and pristine.

The story follows beautiful, smart and very damaged Camille Preaker (Amy Adams). Camille comes from a small town -Wind Gap in Missouri. She left the town eight years ago but now her editor sends her back there to write a story. A year ago a corpse of a young girl was found and now another girl is missing. Camille reluctantly agrees to take the assignment and goes back and as she does, so do the demons she has been battling her entire life.
