Avengers: Endgame

(spoilers!)

Once upon a time comic book films were rare and mostly not very good. Once upon a time Robert Downey Jr. was unhirable. Once upon a time the idea that the movie based on a comic book will earn rave reviews and score nominations for major awards was unthinkable.

And then MCU happened.

  • (RF on Thursday again because tomorrow at that time of the day I'll be watching Endgame!)
  • The above is footage of me watching that Brienne scene from the latest Game of Thrones episode. I haven't been a fan of the show for years but THAT was lovely.

  • So, some fame whoring dipshit put up a video that is spliced clips from Endgame containing major spoilers. I haven't watched it but of course I accidentally stumbled onto some already.

    10 best performances in Quentin Tarantino's films

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, April 16, 2019 , , , , , , , 28 Comments

    I recently rewatched almost all of Tarantino's films - other than Death Proof because seeing it once was enough - and I decided to finally rank my favorite performances in his films. It wasn't easy and a lot of great ones - like Lucy Liu's O-Ren Ishii - didn't make the cut - but it was also lots of fun to go back and appreciate that amazing work. So here we go:

  • We have first teaser for new Star Wars. Episode 9's title is Rise of the Skywalker and the footage is pretty good but the real HYPE is that Palpatine is back. He was the most fun part of the prequels. J.J. Abrams is amazing. Rian TrollEdgeLord left this franchise basically a bag of feces on fire and now J.J. managed to make people excited again. Amazing.

    Visual Parallels: A Simple Favour + Gone Girl

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, April 7, 2019 , , 36 Comments

    David Fincher's Gone Girl is one of my all time favorite movies. And then last year we had the unexpected pleasure of witnessing Paul Feig's wickedly delightful A Simple Favour. These films have many similar elements so it was very easy to come up with that pair for Visual Parallels. We have a cunning, beautiful woman who decides to make a life for her husband difficult, we have a sweet, naive character who unknowingly helps her with her plot, we have a disturbing murder sequence and we have worrisome past of our cunning villain revealed.

    (384) Waiting for Endgame + links

  • Avengers: Endgame tickets went on sale and pretty much broke the internet. There is also new TV spot. Oh God, the hype levels now! I got my ticket for Friday 26th. Please just don't kill Thor.
  • Meanwhile Hemsworth is out there, uploading stuff like this on his instagram.
  • I think he wants people to actually die before they get to see the movie, there is no other explanation for this filth.
  • It was Robert Downey Jr.'s 54th (!) birthday yesterday and Chris and Tessa recorded a sweet birthday message.
  • Here's brilliant artwork depicting Angelina Jolie as Sersi, one of The Eternals. I really like the idea of Marvel casting a woman in their 40's to led a franchise so hopefully this is the part she is actually up for. Also having read a bit about the character it would be so cool if she played Sersi because she is giving me some serious 90's, wild, hedonistic and crazy Angelina vibes.
