    Let's take a closer look at "Us" trailer

    The trailer for Jordan Peele's Us was just released, in time to freak everyone out during Christmas. This is a very rare situation where I didn't read spoilers and didn't read the script so it's really fun to try to figure out what is happening.

    Aquaman

    (spoilers!)

    When James Wan, acclaimed and successful director mostly known for his horror films, was asked which movie he wanted to make - The Flash or Aquaman - he decided on Aquaman because the character is "an underdog". And Wan was right - the character was ridiculed for a very long time, with jokes at his expense, appearing most notably in South Park and The Big Bang Theory, becoming the most famous thing about the character.

    Well....who's laughing now?

  • First of all we need to talk about this ---->
  • Actually instead of talking about it since a picture says it all, let me share my favorite comments from reddit/movies thread about this mess:
  • Will Smith looks like he gives sensual massages to lonely housewives.
  • I want my money back already.
  • Every day we stray further from the Lord’s light. Jesus Fucking Christ.
  • This picture gets worse the longer you look at it.
  • The trailer "SHOW US THE GENIE YOU FUCKS" shows genie "FUCK NO GO BACK".
  • Jesus Christ what is happening.
  • This shit look ass.
  • Jasmine and Aladdin look like hostages.
  • This is going to hunt down and suck every last dick.
  • Yep. Well said.

  • Since I'm back at work I haven't seen much this week but Assassination Nation was really great! It's in my top 10 of the year at the moment. Really great story and fantastic lead in Odessa Young. I would really recommend it, the story is very relevant in this moment in time too.

  • Avengers: Endgame trailer is out. It's a cool trailer with really epic music. I kinda wish the trailers for this was just the title card. If there was ever a franchise with enough goodwill and hype to pull it off and still have everyone go see the movie anyways, it's this one.

    Forgotten, underrated and underseen erotic thrillers from the 90's

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, December 2, 2018 26 Comments

    One thing I don't think I talk enough about is just how much I love the 90's. Granted, I was just a kid back then but I loved everything about it - the music - remember, you could turn on MTV or VH1 and there were actual music videos there? - the clothes, the spectacular hair and the movies that were released back then.

    One very distinctive kind of movies we got from the 90's were (mostly) female-led thrillers, usually featuring wild sex scenes, a lot of casual nudity and truly disturbing subject matter. In other words three things we don't see often, if at all, in American movies these days.
