    Sharp Objects 1x08 Milk

    By s. Wednesday, August 29, 2018 , 8 Comments

    "A child weaned on poison considers harm a comfort.”

    A crucial line from the novel didn't make it into the last episode of Sharp Objects, a finale that mostly delivered and majorly surprised. And thus all of Gillian Flynn's books have been adapted (and yes, what as shame it is we didn't get Dark Places adaptation that was worthy of the novel). I've gotta say that as wonderful as Fincher's Gone Girl was Jean-Marc Vallée really did wonders here, even though you still wish for more of the scenes from the book were featured on screen.

    Sharp Objects 1x07 Falling

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


    The penultimate, stunning episode of Sharp Objects set the stage for finale particularly for the confrontation between Camille, now barely hanging on, having lost everything with only her desire to deliver justice and protect Amma remaining, and Adora, who we all saw for the monster she truly is, in ways that book readers might not have expected.

    Sharp Objects 1x06 Cherry

    Two episodes left and the things on Sharp Objects are figuratively and literally spinning out of control with our protagonist losing her grip on reality and responsible or sane behavior more and more the longer she stays in the town and the closer she gets to her sister. This episode brought a fan favorite scene - the party Camille attends with Amma. And as all the previous episodes, it did source material justice.

  • I give you the dumbest thing the Academy has ever done. This is a disgrace. Not only is it clearly just to give Black Panther something, because God forbid give it anything else, but honestly...this is the Academy Awards not freaking MTV Movie Awards.

    Sharp Objects 1x05 Closer

    By s. Tuesday, August 7, 2018 , 13 Comments

    This week in Sharp Objects we saw the event that was only mentioned in passing in the book, here expanded to the entire episode. And what a fantastic idea that was. Calhoun Day, Adora's pride and joy, provided a riveting look into the inhabitants of the town and the biggest dose of humor in the show yet.But there was so much heartbreak too.

    Sharp Objects 1x04 Ripe

    By s. Sunday, August 5, 2018 , 8 Comments

    If Sharp Objects is like an acid trip, this last episode was the peak of it, so far. Halfway through the season we are deep into Wind Gap dysfunctional ways, stuck there with Camille. And with each episode we find out more and more painful things about her.

  • (I have been providing quality content like insane over the last few days and so little interest in last RF?! You guys should be out there spamming the comment section with how awesome Aquaman trailer is and how it changed your lives for the better!)
  • First of all, spectacular poster for Apostle. This is from the director of The Raid movies, starring Dan Stevens and Michael Sheen and that poster is splendid. The word "Netflix" is a huge warning sign, obviously but hopefully, somehow, this will be good.
  • For my rant about James Gunn and Guardians of the Garbage - click here. I wasn't even planning on writing a s separate post about this. I was working on RF draft and suddenly I had 12 bullet points on that mess so I was like well OK, this needs to be a separate post.
  • So again, Sharp Objects recap is coming on Sunday.

    I think a man needs to be a man. To hold a woman the way she wants to be held. Just do whatever your woman wants, and you'll be fine.
