    Screaming Sunday - Bone Tomahawk

    By Sati. Sunday, November 1, 2015 , , 21 Comments
    Movie rating - 85/100
    Plot:  In the Old West, a sheriff (Kurt Russell), his deputy (Richard Jenkins), a gunslinger (Matthew Fox),and a cowboy (Patrick Wilson) embark on a mission to rescue three people from a savage group of cave dwellers.
    The heroes: Our brave rescue party of four (whoever gets that reference gets the rest of my Halloween candy).
    The antagonists: The cannibalistic tribe of Indians, who are not only outnumbering our heroes but are also completely ruthless and have some sort of bone stuck in their throats so they can emit the call that is seriously creepy as fuck.
    Best scene: The whole film is a string of best scenes, really.
    Oh-oh something's not right line: You have no chance against any number of them.
    What makes it so great? I am strangely not big a fan of western ever though my second favorite show of all time (Deadwood) and one of my all time favorite westerns (The Assassination of Jesse James) come from this genre. But I am a huge fan of horror. So when, as soon as this movie hit VOD, there were many raves and positive reviews for this and I saw it stars Richard Jenkins, an actor who simply never fails, I decided to watch it and what a good decision it was.

    The film is a perfect blend of western and horror - it spends 3/4 of its running time following the western formula - letting us get familiar with the feel of the film, the location, the pace and most of all get used to and really like the main four heroes, who with no regard for the safety of their own, go on perhaps suicide mission to rescue the people taken by the enemy. There are no doubts whether they should go - they just go, which already makes us admire them for their bravery.

    American Horror Story 5x03 Mommy / 5x04 Devil's Night

    By Sati. Thursday, October 29, 2015 4 Comments
    Yeah, so this is awkward - I didn't have the time to recap the episode last Thursday and then I kinda forgot to recap it. But I warned you it may happen. So we are doing the double feature today.

    Last week's episode unfortunately showed us more of Alex. Is there anyone watching who actually cares about this arc? Anyways it turns out Alex loves her abducted son way more than her husband - whom she wants to divorce - and daughter - whom she throws the most epic side eye since Catelyn Tully. So Alex goes to Hotel and after being teased by Naomi Campbell's ghost (by the way don't you badmouth Zara) she runs into Holden and takes him home, because oh well what could possibly go wrong?

    Crimson Peak

    By Sati. Tuesday, October 27, 2015 , , , , , , , 14 Comments

    Before I discuss the many problems Crimson Peak unfortunately has, let's just get this out of the way - this is the finest haunted house in cinema since Alejandro Amenabar directed The Others, back in 2001. The house in Crimson Peak is a true marvel - beautifully designed, meticulously planned and definitely worth seeing on the big screen. As advertised, this is the house that breathes and bleeds - the wind sounds like wailing, the red clay spilling through wooden boards looks like blood. This house is truly magnificent and one of the strongest things in the movie.

  • Tom Hardy became a father again! His wife Charlotte gave birth to their child yesterday. While searching for the news I found this pic of Tom and his first son.
  • There are no words.
  • I was supposed to see Crimson Peak today but I was too exhausted to go to cinema. I'm just so tired. I've been falling asleep at 10 pm lately. I came to work at 7.20 today and finished working around 14:40. It's madness.
  • I finally sat down and watched Far From the Madding Crowd last weekend. I'm creating the dumbest character of the year category in my annual awards just for the main chick.
  • JFC this movie. First some sheep committed mass suicide by jumping off the cliff. Then I think a dog got shot, but it was out of frame so I can always pretend it didn't happen. Then that main bitch gets a lamb from this guy and he proposes and she says no. Then Michael Sheen proposes and the bitch says no. And previously in the movie she sent him a valentine but when it is pointed out to her by the lamb guy that she led the poor guy on she fires him. But then some sheeps' stomachs start exploding - or something - so she rides after the lamb guy because only he can help her. Then some gigolo soldier arrives and waves a sword - literally - at her in the woods and she marries him. He is of course a douche and gets her in debt and impregnates some plot device played as usual by Juno Temple and then plot device and its baby die and then he is pronounced dead after he allegedly drowns so poor Sheen proposes again and just as she maybe kind of will graciously agree the dead husband comes back and Sheen shoots him so he is sent to jail and the one left who gave her a lamb is leaving her but - poor guy - she catches on to him and they make out.

    My God.

    Visual Parallels: A Single Man + The Hours

    By Sati. Tuesday, October 20, 2015 , , 20 Comments
    Stephen Daldry's The Hours and Tom Ford's A Single Man are both beautiful movies dealing with the subject of loneliness. The first follows three women, each living in different time, but each of them hopelessly stuck in their lives. The second shows a day of a man who lost his lover and is set on killing himself.

    American Horror Story 5x02 Chutes and Ladders

    By Sati. Thursday, October 15, 2015 4 Comments

    This week at the Hotel we got to truly suffer trough the introduction and the following scenes featuring Finn Wittrock's character, we got to learn a little bit about Countess Elizabeth and we got a truly awesome black and white flashback which was so incredibly brutal I'm almost sure it would not be allowed to air in color.

    We opened with Sally being sadistic to that raped dude and sewing him into the mattress. Then one of the Swedish tourists died after vamp kid fed on her and Iris and Liz Taylor along with the maid got rid of her body. Iris comes over to Elizabeth's room because she wants to speak with Donovan but he hides from her. Elizabeth tells him she wants to go out but he wants to stay in and watch House of Cards. So Elizabeth goes out on her own.
