    Ed Harris' performances: 1992 - 2001

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 23, 2017 18 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 , , 27 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.

  • Sir, can you stop being adorable for 5 seconds so I can catch my breath?

  • (I don't know if you guys know how much time these posts take to write but I start them on Saturday and have them in draft entire week and every time I see something to add, I do that. But still on Friday it takes a lot of time to prepare the post to publish. I have been editing this motherfucker for 5h now and every time I think I'm done something new shows up on my twitter feed and I need to change it. No more. I don't care what happens. I'm publishing).

    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.

    (285) Don't toy with us, boo kangaroo + links

    By Sati. Friday, April 28, 2017 18 Comments
  • This has been a lovely week with so many boos doing so many beautiful things. Boo kangaroo, Jason boo and Tommy boo all did something awesome this week...oh, how blessed we are, truly. 
  • However today I have seen something truly horrific.
  • It's like I'm seeing him in Les Miserables dive into the sewage again.
  • On Saturday before my vacation was over (on the upside it is 5-day long weekend in Poland starting tomorrow. On the downside I had to actually take a day off on Tuesday because my employer didn't figure out that since Monday and Wednesday are days off it would be decent to give us the day off on Tuesday) I decided to treat myself and watch The Wolverine again.

    Dolores Claiborne

    By Sati. Monday, April 24, 2017 , , , , , , , 24 Comments
    The story goes that when Stephen King came to visit the set of Misery he was so impressed with Kathy Bates that he wrote the character of Dolores just for her. The book was quickly adapted into a wonderful film, with Bates in a lead role, the film that is sadly very underrated and didn't get the acclaim it deserves. Unlike most of King's work, Dolores Claiborne is not a horror film dealing with supernatural. However, the themes featured in the film - of domestic violence, abuse, growing old and dying are universally horrific.

    A post shared by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on
  • I think we were using the world 'adorable' wrong before applying it ONLY to Hugh.
  • (Checking out the videos on that instagram is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Trust me. The side effect is that you are going to be insanely distracted...from all of...this perfection. And for a long time...so maybe watch the videos on Friday evening and then lie down for the rest of the weekend.)
  • Also welcome to the world where Girls is finally over! The evil has been defeated! Rejoice! Rejoice!!!
  • So I did another triple Hugh (this sounds like a sex thing...which it kinda is) feature on Saturday.
