(293) Can God photoshop my life? + links

  • Oh my God. Oh my God this whole video.
  • Well. since you're in good mood now after watching it, I hereby announce that the website and my charming presence in the blogosphere is going on semi-hiatus. I have been running this shit show for 6 years or so and never did this happen in the whole history of this website, but adulting sucks and comes with consequences. That means I'm unfortunately going to be on your websites MUCH less with my wise and super appropriate comments and the only posts here for the next couple of weeks are going to be RFs. I just have too much going on now, the work is insane lately - keep in mind I have a full time job that has nothing to do with movies and is emotionally and - clearly - mentally draining. I wish I could say that this is because I'm hardcore dating (lol) or I'm pregnant (double lol) but no, it's really just because of work. If it slows down, I'll have the time but it's not slowing down at all and it's been like that for several months now. I am exhausted and I really can't keep going like this.

  • So I finally gifed the above from Hugh's last appearance on Jimmy's show back when he was promoting Logan and they played that game where Hugh had to lip read what Jimmy is saying.

    Alien: Covenant

    By Sati. Tuesday, June 13, 2017 , , , , , , , 14 Comments
    (spoilers!)

    We need to stop giving the benefit of a doubt to Ridley Scott.

    While the man deserves respect for his two masterpieces - Alien and Blade Runner Scott has now taken the turn that makes it very clear his Alien prequels aren't a thing of passion and certainly not necessity. Why is Scott at 79 years of age set on damaging his masterpiece? (Alien is forever tainted by the existence of the Covenant now). I'm saying this because there is no way anyone can tell me this rehashed, mangled product is the intended movie. This is reactionary.

  •  I gifed the above (it's from The Prestige) because clearly I have no regard for my safety, health and life. And I put the above gif on tumblr because clearly my recklessness applies to those poor thousands of people following me there.

    Wonder Woman

    By Sati. Monday, June 5, 2017 , , , , , , 28 Comments
    75 years. That's how long Wonder Woman had to wait for her own movie. 14 years. That's how long the director Patty Jenkins had to wait to do her next film. But now it's finally their time. And with that all the women should cheer - we finally have a CBM movie where it's a woman who is leading, not following.

    And it's wonderful. They should be very proud. We all should be considering the opening weekend box office.

  • (6 comments on last one, what the fuck is going on here? I write this smut down for y'all)
  • As early as Monday this week Hugh apparently decided his fangirls are in too much control of their mental capabilities (which if you read at least one of my posts you KNOW to be a wrong assumption to make) and he posted the above.
  • Sweet Jesus one of those days he will tweet something, I will see it and I will just stop living.

    Medicine in the Movies: The Fountain

    By Sati. Saturday, May 27, 2017 , , , 12 Comments


    Charlene's (mostly) Classic Movie Reviews is hosting a Medicine in the Movies blogathon. The task was to write about a movie where there is some relation to medicine. I decided to focus on Darren Aronosfky'sThe Fountain which is such a beautiful and very underrated movie. The film takes place in the 16th century, in 2005, and in 2500. In the past a conquistador fights in a religious war for his Queen. In the future a man and a tree travel up the sky to reach a dying star. And in the present day storyline a doctor is searching for a cure to save his wife who is dying of brain cancer.

    Ed Harris' performances: 1992 - 2001

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 23, 2017 20 Comments
    It's finally time for the second out of four of my posts about all the performances of the great Ed Harris. Last month I wrote, among others, about his big screen debut, first leading role, first performance in major Oscar race contender and his great work in Glengarry Glen Ross (which was last movie featured in last post) (years: 1978 - 1992)

    Now it's an even more exciting - and most successful - time in his career to focus on - his first, second and third Oscar nomination, his most well known role to date and a whole variety of characters he portrayed - from politicians and cops through psychopaths and generals to priests and alcoholic painters. There is nothing this man can't do.

  • I have been gifing Logan like a crazy person. The above, I decided, is the most beautiful moment in the movie. And ironically he is putting clothes ON in it.
  • (to be fair there was this long slow shot of his chest right before that. I just made noises while typing that sentence.)
  • It's my avatar on every message board I post on. It's insanely distracting.
  • I gifed the glasses of ovaries doom.
  • I gifed the swearing.
  • I gifed this sad shit.
  • I cannot stop. I'm even taking requests. I'm like a porn peddler.

    Visual Parallels: Logan + Mad Max: Fury Road

    By Sati. Wednesday, May 17, 2017 , , 28 Comments

    It's almost too perfect. Mad Max: Fury Road is my favorite movie from 2015 while Logan is my favorite in 2017. I do realize it's May but in my experience we only get one masterpiece per year. And Logan is that masterpiece. It's not just well done and beautifully acted film with wonderfully crafted story at the center of it, but it also truly stays with you. Just like Fury Road did.
