"The Crown" delivers its best season yet and introduces the new generation to Lady Diana

By s. Monday, November 16, 2020 , , 4 Comments
The hugely anticipated season 4 of The Crown is finally here and it's yet another series from Netflix that is so good I actually watched all 10 episodes of it in a row. It's the show's best season yet and it's about to catapult it to new level of popularity for the obvious reason - it introduces the iconic Princess Diana.

Welcome to Arrakis in the first trailer for Denis Villeneuve's "Dune"

By s. Wednesday, September 9, 2020 , , 12 Comments

After months and months of waiting today is the finally the day. This is not the first footage many of us has seen - Warner Bros. cleverly added a very impressive teaser to Tenet but foolishly didn't release the teaser online so a lot of people's first look at the movie was camrip footage. But now the proper trailer has been released.

  • You guys simply have to see Capone. I tweeted two clips (1,2) from this thing - there are no words to express how ridiculous this movie gets. Hardy reaches Cage's levels in this. It's truly a must see for his performance.

    Saturday TV Special: What We Do in the Shadows

    By s. Saturday, May 9, 2020 , 14 Comments
    Plot: A look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of three vampires, who've lived together for over 100 years, on Staten Island.
    Structure: Every episode focuses on another issue our adorable vampires must face - trying to find food (ideally virgins), dealing with their living conditions (and avoiding a disliked roommate who happens to be an energy vampire), organizing a vampire orgy, dealing with animal control, trying to make sense of zoning committees, fighting with werewolves, and many, many others.
    Verdict: This is easily way, way funnier than the movie. While the film was very amusing and clever, this series never fails to deliver the lough out laughs and is so incredibly witty. Also the characters are very likable in spite of being blood - or energy - thirsty vampires, which is quite an accomplishment.

  • Here we go with special RF. The website is still on hiatus, RF will be monthly now, at best. I find it extremely difficult to focus on anything these days so I have no posts in draft and I couldn't even manage to read many of your posts this week.
  • First of all, and that is the most important thing and pretty much the main reason I decided to write anything today - Happy Birthday to the hottest, the greatest, the one and only Ben Mendelsohn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Under normal circumstances there would be a huge post but I can't even bring myself to write that now. But I hope he is safe, healthy and having a great day!

  • The Coronavirus situation is now extremely serious. Even though we only have 58 cases so far, the cinemas and schools here in Poland are closed. They called off the exams I was supposed to start in 11 days and have been studying for for a year. A YEAR. And 10h per day over the last 3 weeks. Just few more days and I'd be almost confident I'll pass. But now? I am furious. 
  • I decided to put the website on hiatus. I don't know when the new date for my exams will be but I have nothing in draft, I have so much studying to do for God knows how much longer and now I have to go back to work because I sent request to cancel my leave since who knows when the exams will take place. So I don't know when I'll be back posting things. I'm just so tired. I can't deal with drafting posts and reading and commenting on people's websites about movies right now. I'll still be on twitter and letterboxd but not much.

  • Due to the virus, new Bond movie release has been pushed to Thanksgiving. This is insane because it came completely out of nowhere - Daniel Craig is hosting SNL tomorrow and he was supposed to be on Fallon's show yesterday (apparently they called the talk show appearance off and had to get Seth Meyers instead). This can create domino effect with all the other movies moving too. I hope they deal with this scary situation soon, we already have a case in Poland.

  • 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 s. Sunday, February 9, 2020 , , , , , , , 16 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.

    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!

    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:

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 s. Tuesday, January 7, 2020 , 25 Comments
    (slight spoilers for the entire season)


    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.
