It's time for Tarantino to go away

By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, July 30, 2019 , 17 Comments
After suffering through Tarantino's new movie, Once Upon a Time in...Hollywood, an excruciatingly boring trainwreck with editing from hell, I wasn't going to write a review  (and neither is that post one, I only scribbled few words on letterboxd). Tarantino has some of the most rabid, misogynistic fanboys out there and the last thing I want is to have a bunch of incels in my comments section. So on that note - if you wanna call me a cunt, that isn't going to get published here, honey. Maybe it won't happen as they are currently busy harassing Shannon Lee, who was uncomfortable with the portrayal of her father. Apparently that "bitch" "didn't get it".

    10 best scenes in Stranger Things 3

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, July 21, 2019 , 17 Comments
    Recently I made list where I chose 10 best scenes in Stranger Things from season 1 and season 2. It was actually even harder to choose 10 scenes just from season 3. This is my favorite season so far and I just keep reweatching it. The wait for season 4 is already really excruciating, so let's take a look at some of the best moments again:

  • 399th RF!
  • Just in case you missed my epic post from earlier this week. Yes, I am very proud of it. 
  • Comic Con is happening right now. Here's new It: Chapter Two poster, the trailer got its separate post because it was so dope.
  • Tom Cruise showed up and the crowd went wild. He was there to present the first trailer for Top Gun sequel. Oh God when did Ed Harris age so much? Especially that Cruise didn't age at all and there's like only 10 years of age difference between them.
  • The trailer for Cats is out and it's fucking nightmare fuel. Oh my God!
  •  David Benioff and DB Weiss chickened out and dropped out of Game of Thrones panel that is supposed to happen today. My God, I have never seen a show face such a (deserved) hate. The shame will follow these two no matter what, they are completely fucked. And the actors are probably going to have to deal with their mess today. 
  • Emmy nominations are out and they are garbage. How out of touch are they? Pretty much everyone out there considers the final season of Thrones to be an absolute embarrassment and they give it over 30 nominations? I cannot believe Gwendoline Christie and Alfie Allen are finally nominated and it's for this tragique season. I'm so glad about Emilia Clarke, though. It's remarkable how much she managed to do with so very little. But where the fuck are the nominations for Deadwood? It's also unbelievable how everyone keeps snubbing Eliza Scanlen for Sharp Objects left and right. TV awards are really dumber than movie ones.

    Pennywise returns in brand new trailer for "It: Chapter Two"!

    Finally! Comic Con is happening right now in San Diego and even though WB doesn't have a panel this year, the cast of It: Chapter Two was there last night and participated in Conan O'Brien's special show. They also showed 3 scenes and a trailer, which just dropped online:

    Top 5: Male characters I love the most

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, July 16, 2019 , , , , , 35 Comments
    Because I'm bored and I'm shallow I decided to make a list today. Going through all of my crushes would be impossible so I decided to narrow things down. Today, my lovely readers who I judge only a little bit for reading this website to begin with, we are not going to focus on the actors I love. No, we are going to focus on the characters I love (that also happen to be played by the actors I love).

    The Beach Bum

    By sati (harlequinade) Monday, July 15, 2019 , , , , , , 8 Comments
    There are some actors who suit the part they are playing so well you cannot possibly imagine anyone else doing that. It's the case with Jeff Bridges as the Dude. Samuel. L Jackson as Jules Winnfield. Keanu Reeves as Neo. And now Matthew McConaughey's Moondog.

    McConaughey, who had his career comeback a while back, had less luck in the last few years appearing in a bunch of movies that were either unsuccessful, underseen or complete box office and critical flops. Just few months ago we watched him in utterly insane Serenity, but even there you gotta admit while the film was an incomprehensible disaster McConauyghey's entertaining performance still made it a lot of fun to watch.

  • Comic Con is next week and we are getting new trailer for It: Chapter 2. Meanwhile, here are the new images.
  • Man, Spider-Man: Far From Home was LAME. Homecoming is one of the worst movies in MCU but this was even worse. It would be the worst one yet but that Edward Norton atrocity exists. End credits scenes were better than the movie itself. I ain't paying for Spider-Man flick next time. 
  • But Hellboy was even worse than this. How the hell did people involved in this did not realize that they were making absolute turd? There's this CGI involving Ian McShane near the end of the movie that is so bad I almost want to recommend this mess to you guys so you see it with your own eyes. 
  • Enjoy this pure video.
  • Midsommar is out there ending shitty relationships.
  • This is brilliant!

    Midsommar

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, July 7, 2019 , , , , , , , , 18 Comments
    (spoilers!)

    Last year Hereditary profoundly scared some and infuriated the others, but one thing cannot be denied - it definitely got people talking. Now its director, Ari Aster, is back with another nightmare and unlike Jordan Peele and his frankly embarrassing script for Us, he avoids sophomore slump. While Hereditary may be a more entertaining and accessible movie, Midsommar feels like a movie made by someone who is more sure of their skill. There were some parts of Hereditary that I felt didn't fit the movie in a natural way and took me out of it, but Midsommar doesn't have that problem. It's a more mature movie.

Here are my thoughts on this season:

  • Everyone say thank you to Netflix for no comments on your new posts and shorter RF. I've done nothing yesterday because they dropped Stranger Things on what is a working day for me (I hope you had a happy 4th of July, you lucky bastards in America) so I had a whole one afternoon and evening less to do things and work on RF.

    After rewatching the entire series last week, just in time for season 3 which arrives the day after tomorrow, I decided to comply the list of 10 best moments on the show so far. It wasn't easy as this series has so many fantastic sequences but somehow, I managed. Here we go!:

    Rising Stars: Florence Pugh

    By sati (harlequinade) Monday, July 1, 2019 17 Comments
    Ever since watching Lady Macbeth last year I have been a huge fan of Florence Pugh. Along with Eliza Scanlen she is, for me, the most exciting and talented young actress out there - and how wonderful that they will share the screen very soon in Little Women.

    Florence was born in 1996. She grew up in Oxford in a creative family, one of four children. Her dad owns a handful of restaurants in the city, her mother was a dancer and her older brother, Toby Sebastian, who is also an actor played the Dornish prince on Game of Thrones.
