(382) Once upon a time... + links

By sati (harlequinade) Thursday, March 21, 2019 15 Comments
  • Yes, it is Thursday but I'm seeing Us tomorrow evening so I will probably be too tired/scared to do anything after it, so enjoy early RF!
  • Here is absolutely awful first poster for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. What the hell? How do you release THIS as the first poster? Pitt looks like he died and someone stuffed him and DiCaprio looks like he is posing for a bunch of 20 year old models he is about to choose from and bring to his yacht.

    The first trailer for Ari Aster's Midsommar is here!

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, March 5, 2019 , , 18 Comments
    Yey! Midsommar is my most anticipated movie of the year. I consider Aster's previous movie Hereditary one of the most unique horror movies of last few years. I read Midsommar script last fall and absolutely loved it and I just cannot wait to see the story play out on screen. I'm already very surprised - in a great way - by all the pastel colors in the marketing

    Mt. Rushmore of Movies - 4 dumbest films I watched for Zac Efron

    By sati (harlequinade) Wednesday, February 27, 2019 16 Comments

    There's a wonderful tradition over at the most entertaining blog out there - Mario's TwoDollarCinema - where our dear Mario hosts Mt. Rushmore blogathon for President's Day.

    In a shocking twist, in the years past I honored my favorite men - both real and fictional. And in an even more shocking twist this year is not gonna be an exception.

  • Hello, my dearest people! Yes, it is Thursday but since shockingly I'm going out tomorrow (I do have a social life once every few months) and since the attendance on last RF wasn't great (come on, people!) I'm dropping the new one early to give you a chance to process it before my Best of 2018 list drops of Sunday.
  • Wheeew, there's a lot to process this week.
  • Captain Marvel's social media reactions are here and they are glowing! And here's an absolutely brilliant promo highlighting the clear standout - the cat!

    10 films WITHOUT romantic subplot to enjoy on Valentine's Day

    By sati (harlequinade) Wednesday, February 13, 2019 , , , , , , , , , , 38 Comments

    Today is Galentine's Day, the day during which we celebrate our beloved female friends. But tomorrow is the dreaded Valentine's Day. There's plenty of romantic films out there, hell, romance is featured in one way or another in most movies so I figured, as a bitter spinster (Jason Momoa is already taken, so why bother?), I'll bring you the list of films you can safely enjoy without the risk of accidentally watching moronic proposals in the work place, romantic chases on the airport, weddings, babies and all of that cute crap.

    The most wonderful time of the year is finally here! It's when I get to share my love for the greatest things in movies from last year. Just like in 2017, I'm starting with best scenes of the year. Unfortunately I didn't see all the films I planned - Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse, Destroyer, Vox Lux and I didn't finish the one I don't want to watch but have to - Roma, so here we go, this is the list of the best scenes out of 77 2018 releases I watched.

    Sundance festival, where often times some of the most exciting movies of the year premiere, is happening right now. I was reading reviews of the films that were shown there this week and few of those sound really exciting. The best part? We only have to wait 2 days for one of those!:

    The Favourite

    By sati (harlequinade) Wednesday, January 16, 2019 , , , , , , , , , , 30 Comments

    Yorgos Lanthimos' movies are not everyone's cup of tea. They are bizarre, shocking and more often than not, very unpleasant. While they always provide a great material for actors to deliver astounding performances I was thrilled to find out The Favourite is the most accessible of his movies. And that turned out to be a correct assessment - though also strange, this film is more a dark comedy than a crazy ride like The Lobster or The Killing of the Sacred Deer.

    Just like last year I decided to make a list of my upcoming anticipated movies. Granted, a lot of films that I anticipated last year sucked (The Nun...) but number one turned out to be awesome, so fingers crossed for this year too.

  • Well I'm back to work now but at least until Wednesday I managed to watch a lot of movies and TV series. And now it's back to going to bed at 10 PM and waiting for the weekend to actually watch something.
