  • Well good news is that WB is already doing some promo things for Wonder Woman 1984 so that's a good sign. Maybe the marketing for this movie won't be terrible. Meanwhile, Sonic easily dethroned BoP in its second box office week. It's disgraceful how they botched that release and it won't be forgotten.

    Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

    By sati (harlequinade) Sunday, February 9, 2020 , , , , , , , 14 Comments


    I love Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel and I think they are both wonderful movies about terrific heroines. However, I cannot fully connect with them because, while they kick ass, they are so very noble and kind. Diana grew up on a paradise island, surrounded only by loving and supportive women, and Carol doesn’t fully remember her past, which explains why they aren't pissed off. Because if they knew what we know and experience what we do, they'd be very, very angry.

  • So remember how 2 months ago I rewatched In Secret and my sinuses blew up? So, uh, funny story...
  • 10 days of antibiotics and I now think there is definitely a link between my health and thirst. But on the upside I saw plenty of movies this week.

    There were so many wonderfully shot movies in 2019, making my cinematography line up was a bit of a nightmare. It was easier with this list, seeing how many choices I could include. And 2 weeks from now, my final best and worst of 2019 list will be published, this time with record 66 categories!

  • Adam Driver was so funny hosting SNL. I loved his monologue and the opening bit was kinda ballsy. The science guy and Slow sketches were freaking hilarious.

    10 Best Scenes in 2019

    By sati (harlequinade) Monday, January 27, 2020 , , , , , , , , , , 28 Comments

    2019 gave us so many good scenes. I could easily make a list of at least 50, but the traditional format has always been and will remain 10. But it was so hard to choose the ranking. However number 1? Well, that easily won. So here we go:

    10 Best Performances in 2019

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, January 14, 2020 , , , , , , , , , , 27 Comments
    Here we are again, the most wonderful time of the year when we get to celebrate the best movies and performances we saw over the last 12 months. Usually I start my lists with the best scenes, but I still haven't watched 1917 and I think it may have a shot at that, so this year we begin with the best performances.

  • I choose to believe this is McGregor's punishment for having an affair. The outfit I mean. Good God, what even is that. 
  • Meanwhile, WB's marketing for Birds of Prey has been an absolute disaster. I lost faith that their upcoming releases will be hits, they are just such an inept studio. Wonder Woman 1984 will hopefully do well thanks to that amazing trailer but honestly I just resent that studio for giving so much marketing to incel bait Joker but not advertising first R rated female led CBM with equal enthusiasm and resources.

    The Witcher (season 1)

    By sati (harlequinade) Tuesday, January 7, 2020 , 25 Comments
    (slight spoilers for the entire season)

    Fuck.

    That's the word that is uttered in hilarious ways at multiple points of the series by Geralt of Rivia, its protagonist. But that's also the word that should be on the minds of the audience - Netflix's new show, which is already breaking records, is a baffling mess that has huge potential but the first season of it is an embarrassing fiasco, filled with awful visuals and even worse storytelling. Yet in the world where trash like Joker made a billion dollars, it's not in the least surprising something that is so poorly made became a hit.

  • First trailer for A Quiet Place part 2. This looks fun and hopefully isn't as silly as the first movie. I still cannot believe they made a child...on purpose...during the SILENT Apocalypse.
