(301) Unforgettable indeed + links

By Sati. Friday, August 18, 2017 6 Comments
  • I know every week I say this is gonna be short and yet I manage to ramble on for so long you guys all need therapy after reading it but this week it's really gonna be short. I'm exhausted since work is crazy, I'm still not OK after what happened at the vet recently and I'm all together a mess. I really think I may have a breakdown soon so it would be nice if nothing else that depresses me happens. Also - and more importantly - Hugh has not gone to the beach this week so there is no new material to perv about.
  • Yep, my tweets have gone poetic again.
  • Here he is being adorable again.
  • And again.
  • Yes, I did rewatch Deception before posting my recent post.
  • I HAVE SEEN THAT THING FIVE TIMES NOW.
  • buy anyways...

    Against the Crowd Blogathon 2017

    By Sati. Tuesday, August 15, 2017 30 Comments

    The last time I participated in Dell's  and KG's Against the Crowd blogathon was 2015 and what do you know, another Edgar Wright movie was my choice back then. The next time he makes a movie I am not seeing it. And if any of you tells me to, I'll punch you in the face.

    WARNING: if you like Baby Driver, Arrival, Amy Adams, Michelle Williams and quality film criticism and are offended by violent sexual imagery, inappropriate jokes and insane ramblings - don't proceed further.

    (Probably endless) list of things I love about Logan, part 3

    (part 1) (part 2)

    136. Logan growling in his sleep, waking up and seeing Laura there, watching him. It's a blessing she wasn't anywhere near him since we all know what happens to women when Logan wakes up near them.

    Dunkirk

    By Sati. Sunday, July 30, 2017 , , , , , , , , 25 Comments

    (spoilers!)

    Every Christopher Nolan's movie is an event. In the world were practically every big, spectacular movie out there is a part of a franchise, Nolan is one of the few who still manages to do something unique. And while Dunkirk is yet another huge movie event that surprises, it surprises in more than one way. Nolan often works with complex stories and world building- the magnificent magic tricks he pulls on the audience throughout The Prestige with the film's multiple twists and misdirections, the complex way to unlock the film's mystery rooted in the infliction of protagonist of Memento, the layered world of dreams in Inception - here the story is simple. Soldiers are in need of rescue. Other soldiers and ordinary people are trying to help them. Meanwhile the enemy is trying to kill them all.

    (Probably endless) list of things I love about Logan, part 1

    By Sati. Sunday, July 16, 2017 , , 24 Comments

    6 days ago it has been exactly 4 months since I saw Logan for the very first time. Since that moment I saw the movie 4 more times including once with director's commentary (I have never ever watched anything with commentary before but for this movie I made an exception and it's really a great one - James Mangold shares so much in it and I will cite some of the things I learned from there here). It's July and Logan remains my favorite movie of the year and seeing how it's already in my top 10 of all time - yes, all time - I cannot imagine anything dethroning it.

    So once more, inspired by Alex's brilliant series, - here are the things I loved about James Mangold's masterpiece.

    (296) The Revenge of the Hole + links

    By Sati. Friday, July 14, 2017 22 Comments
  • For the second time ever we almost didn't have new RF here this week. I had my PC unhooked for 3 days due to my apartment being renovated. But mostly I just felt shitty and didn't have enough of sense of humor and whimsy to turn my life - which I have in a sense a jellyfish has a life - into jokes like I usually do. Not only was my PC unhooked but it's also summer cleanse time so I literally couldn't do anything I like to do or that distracts me. I need to be distracted. All the time. 
  • When I'm not it's not a pretty picture.
  • Think of a combo between Jack Black in Tropic Thunder after the bat stole his heroin, Renton in Transpotting during detox and RDJ in Zodiac answering "no" with bland expression on his face after Jake Gyllenhaal asks him if he is OK.
  • But I did get a bit of a boost when I discovered, as my PC got set up yesterday (and I legit screamed when I saw my boo boo folder again, how I missed it!), that I actually had something in draft saved up from my weekend perving so I just worked from there.
  • This is shorter than usual. But by no means less filthy.

    "Prisoners" is still so very stupid

    By Sati. Tuesday, July 4, 2017 , , 14 Comments

    (yes, the website is still on hiatus, but my upcoming RF bulletpoint for Prisoners turned into 20-paragraph long rant so yes, we're doing this today)

    There is one thing that fascinates me more than what seems like almost universal love for Denis Villeneuve's 2013's assault on brain cells entitled Prisoners and that is the amount of holes in the story of this film. I can only think of two truly atrocious scripts in the recent memory that dragged otherwise promising and well executed films to the bottom of 'what the fuck?' stupidity - this and Interstellar. And this one may actually be dumber than Matthew McConaughey floating around book shelves in space and coding a watch so that Jessica Eureka Chastain solves physics stuff in the future or past or whenever.

    No, wait. Nope. Nothing is dumber that that.

    I have recently sat through this awfully paced but beautifully shot movie for the third time just to hear Hugh Jackman yell the word "fuck" and look handsome. Don't judge me. At least it allows me to give movies second chances. Or in this film's case second (in March) and third (last Saturday) chance. And in this case proving to me that my initial reaction to it was right on the money.

  • You know that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep witnesses the dress that was made specifically for her character and she pursues her lips in extreme disapproval? The Greatest Showman trailer - or to be more specific the reactions to that trailer from everyone on this planet who is not so horny for Hugh it clouds all judgment and it's like whatever, if he sat on the crapper for 2 hours and sang "What a Feeling" we would still love it - are that dress. And in that laborious and lovely analogy I'm Meryl Streep. Because I'm thinking come December I'm gonna have to grab a shield and a sword and metaphorically No Man's Land the haters while someone ferociously screams "CRAZY GIRL! NO!' in the background.

  • 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.

    Alien: Covenant

    By Sati. Tuesday, June 13, 2017 , , , , , , , 26 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.

    Wonder Woman

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Logan. Our Wolverine.

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 2, 2017 , , 16 Comments

    The strong, silent type. He wasn’t in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do.

    I always loved Tony Soparno's rants about the archetype of a true man. Someone who simply does the things an honorable man should do, no matter what. Someone who has his own, unspoken code and follows it.

    And I can't help but think that Tony Soprano would have loved Logan.

    We spent so many years with Logan but not until James Mangold's magnificent film which I have not been able to stop thinking for almost two months now, did we really get to see him in all of his glory. In all of his strong, silent type glory. The ultimate hero, but the hero who feels so very human. In Logan you could take his claws away and it wouldn't change much. In Logan we get to see a hero which is not made extraordinary because of his powers, his claws, or the adamantium covering his bones. We get to see that it is something else that made him so very special.
