(275) God bless blind 80's MPAA + links

By Sati. Friday, February 17, 2017 14 Comments
  • Oh my God you guys. I was almost killed by imdb trivia page and google search this week.
  • I was checking out trivia on some of the Ed's movies I have left to watch. I was reading about Swing Shift and this is what I read "In an early scene, Ed Harris, clad only in a towel wrapped around his waist, plops down on a chair. For a split second his genitals are fully exposed. This scene somehow evaded the censors (and in a PG rated film) and in the first video release, the scene is intact. The scene has now disappeared from later releases."
  • After I regained consciousness I did the only thing I could do.

  •  The Beguiled trailer dropped and it is magic. I really hope it is good. It's such a hot premise, I told my mother about this one because she is so in love with Colin Farrell and she so wants to see it.

    (273) Can sequin parrots survive underwater? + links

  • I had a nice week - I am staying home for the most of it. I have a cold. I actually went to work on Monday, then in the evening as I was watching The Way Back and Ed Harris was eating a dead animal with his bare hands I probably should have guessed the fact I was sweating and had a fever during that meant I had a cold. 
  • But I have a fever and sweat during all of his films so there really was no way of knowing.
  • Anyways, since Tuesday I was home which is nice because I cannot remember the last time I had time off work.
  • The biggest story this week is what Nicole Kidman wore to SAG awards. Look, parrots and this weird fabric thing on the chest aside, this is a gorgeous dress. And those parrots wouldn't even be bad. But the hair! This would look lovely with red hair yet Nicole continues to have that awful piss color. And this terrible hairstyle - this looks like something one has going on on their head before cleaning the toilet, not attending the awards.

    The Handmaiden

    By Sati. Tuesday, January 31, 2017 , , , , , , , , 20 Comments
    The Handmaiden is based on the novel "Fingersmith" by Sarah Waters The novel is set in London during the 19th century, but the film is set in Korea in the 1930s, under Japanese colonial rule. The pickpocket Sook-Hee (Tae-ri Kim) is hired by the Japanese heiress Lady Hideko to be her personal servant. Hideko is supported by her Uncle Kouzuki and the gold-digger "Count Fujiwara", who is indeed son of peasants, wants to marry her to steal her inheritance. Sook-Hee is a small-time thief of the ring of the conman "Count Fujiwara" and is sent to help him in the confidence game. But soon Hideko and Sook-Hee get close to each other and become lovers.

     I saw this movie while knowing very little about it, all I knew is that there is a conspiracy against the heiress and the girl who is pretending to be her maid falls in love with her. The twist before part 2 (the film is divided into 3 parts) really took me off guard which is very rare, but I knew the movie was fantastic long before then.

  •  I'm just gonna preface this by saying The Handmaiden makes the acting, the technical side, the story and the emotional impact of each and every one of Oscar movies this year look the last Transfomers movie-level of awful.

    The Academy actually did something right this year! Twice!

    By Sati. Tuesday, January 24, 2017 26 Comments
    The Oscars have done a number of terrible things today - including awarding two nominations to Passengers -  but it doesn't matter.

    I had only two Oscar dreams today. And they both came true.

    Bravo, Academy. Bravo for finally not awarding the mediocrity personified Amy Adams for doing nothing for yet another time in her career. Still, it would have been better if her terrible movie didn't score 8 (undeserved) nominations nor that the nomination for Best Actress went to Meryl Streep for her silly little Globes tirade (no one actually thinks it's just because of the performance, right?) but her missing out is glorious. Of course I cannot truly enjoy it because I keep seeing people whining about this 'snub'. How many times did someone get snubbed because of this basic blandness getting in? 2? 3? 4? 5?

  • OK guys, the next time you see a movie, before recommending it to me you really need to take a moment. If it has Ed Harris, no matter what it is (unless he kills a dog in it), go ahead. Tell me about it, I will see it. I will perv while livetweeting it. I will have a great time. But in every other case take a moment and ponder the following - 'will Sati like this? Like, really like this? Or will she watch it and find herself in need of hate-tweeting about it for at least 3 days with the addition of Ron Swanson 'this is my hell' gif'?

  •  Guess who is 5 years old today? And backed by a popular demand - and by that I mean m.brown - yes, it's my voice on that video. This is why I don't do podcasts. Oh and what I'm saying is 'treat' to get him to look at the camera. Which seems like a stupid thing to do when he is eating a gigantic pig ear.
  • I fear one of those days Batfleck is going to snap and none of us is going to survive to tell the tale.

    (269) Black Mirror + links

    By Sati. Friday, January 6, 2017 18 Comments
  •  I watched almost all episodes of Black Mirror this week. It's a truly outstanding series. I'm gonna try to make a quick post where I rank all the episodes soon but number 1 would be a hard choice between Shut up and Dance and San Junipero. I really think if San Junipero (starring Mackenzie Davis and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) was a movie people would go nuts for it. I'm thinking about doing Visual Parallels with this episode but I don't know when I get to it. I also really liked White Christmas but does Jon Hamm always play assholes? I never saw him play anyone likable. The series is so cool because other than some small Easter eggs the episodes aren't connected at all so you can watch them in whatever order you want. And the cast they assembled in the show is really amazing.

  • (Here's me and Gustav serving you Xmas chic if you haven't seen it on my twitter yet)
  • I just can't with 2016. Is there anyone out there who is going to tell me this year isn't cursed? Princess Leia goes to hospital practically on Christmas Eve, dies few days afterwards and her mother passes away while planning her funeral. George Michael whose Last Christmas has been playing around Christmas Time since the 80's dies on Christmas Day. And now I read the worlds oldest panda died too. It's too much.

    Nocturnal Animals

     (spoilers!)
    2016 is officially the worst year ever. Not only a whole bunch of awful and tragic stuff happened but with the exception of The Witch every single movie I was waiting for and had its very own header on this website sucked. The Revenant. Suicide Squad. And now this.
