2020.10.16 16:03 JAMESFAULKNERSS Why Should You Be Excited for Matt Reeves’ Batman?

Have you seen the trailer? If not, then what are you waiting for?
Matt Reeves’ creative endeavor looks promising, and the recent set photos have revealed that the actors are working ever so hard to nail their respective roles.
📷
The set photos are trending on the internet and if you had by any chance got a peek of that, you would have noticed that the actors are unrecognizable and especially Colin Farrell, whom you wouldn’t even notice if he walks past you like this on the road.
Although we didn’t see much of Zoe Kravitz in the Batman trailer that came out during DC FanDome last month, we did get glimpses of her agility and sparkling eyes.
Now, in the set photos that have come out from Liverpool, England, we can see Zoe Kravitz in full Selina Kyle mode.
In one iconic photo, she is standing alongside Colin Farrell and Robert Pattinson. If you notice her outfit, it looks almost identical to what Anne Hathaway was wearing in that airport scene of the film The Dark Knight Rises, where she is looking to flee from Gotham. Selina Kyle’s new iteration Zoe Kravitz will probably wear that same outfit in one or two scenes. The outfit, as we can see in the photo, includes a shiny black trench coat, matching bow headpiece, edgy fishnets, and lace-up knee-high boots.
Although comparisons between Hathaway and Kravitz will be unfair to both of them, it must be conceded that the latter is leaving no stone unturned in leaving a mark with that iconic character.
However, what went against her is the fact she is standing alongside Colin Farrell, who is looking…well, let’s just say he is taking this role very seriously. The True Detective actor will be seen as Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin) in the 2022 tentpole.
Dressed in a classic Penguin attire from the comics, his weight, scars on the face, and retreated hairline made the actor look as if he has been Oswald Cobblepot all his life. Colin Farrell is the one who has made fans super excited ever since the time the trailer was unveiled.
We have seen enough of Robert Pattinson in the trailer, and some critics have even issued their judgment on him (which will not be discussed here). In the set photos, we see him in daylight as Bruce Wayne, wearing a nice overcoat. He didn’t have a lot of dialogues in the trailer except the question he asks The Riddler in the final seconds of the trailer.
It has been less than two months since the release of The Batman trailer, but it had already surpassed 23 million views on YouTube. In the comments section, you can see how eagerly fans are waiting to see Matt Reeves’ film. However, the production team is currently scuffling with the coronavirus pandemic, and they already have suffered two delays in 2020. One of them came in March, and the other when Robert Pattinson was tested positive.
However, it looks like all is well right now as the shooting has resumed in full force after Robert Pattinson came out clear from his quarantine period.
Like every other film these days, Matt Reeves’ The Batman has also been delayed, and its release date is currently slated on March the 4th, 2022.
Don’t get your hopes high even for March 2022; there is a high probability that film will be delayed further. Meanwhile, you can look at the set photos.

2020.10.12 20:42 jonisantucho Oscar Watch - Post Venice/TIFF/NYFF Edition

Several months ago, right after the last Academy Awards, I posted a long, long, long list of possible contenders that had prospects to fight for the next Oscars. It was a time of hope, of looking forward, and of positivity.
Then, COVID-19 happened.
And now, we find ourselves in a year that may change the movie industry forever, with the lack of safety of theaters in times of a pandemic accelerating the switch of mainstream audiences to streaming and VOD. These are times where some people are beginning to wonder, even after they pushed the eligibility date for two more months, why the Academy doesn’t cancel next year’s Oscars. And in this rocky terrain, we lost many contenders. Fire up the Hunger Games cannons, because these are some casualties of the season (so far).
Launched to 2021: Annette, Benedetta, Deep Water, Dune, In the Heights, King Richard, Last Night in Soho, Memoria, Nightmare Alley, Passing, Red, White and Water, Raya and the Last Dragon, The Last Duel, The Power of the Dog, Tick, Tick… Boom!, West Side Story.
Unknown status / missing in action: After Yang, Blonde, Breaking News in Yuba County, C’mon C’mon, Next Goal Wins, Stillwater, The French Dispatch, The Humans, The Tragedy of Macbeth, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Those Who Wish Me Dead.
But even if this year isn’t as loaded with clear awards candidates, there are plenty of movies that are already drawing buzz for an Oscar season that started brewing a month ago, with the kickoff of the Venice Film Festival, and will go on for six and a half more months, when the Academy Awards take place on April 25, 2021. It’s gonna be a long, weird and rocky season, which is gonna be great to see in terms of the narratives that are coming up.
-Ammonite (trailer): When people were betting on the likelier contenders of this year, many people pointed in the direction of Francis Lee’s period drama, with previous Best Actress winner Kate Winslet and constant nominee Saoirse Ronan. Going into the premiere at Toronto, people had their eyes set in this queer romance between a paleontologist and a young wife in the coasts of England during the 19th century. But then, some things happened. First, Winslet started her promotion of the movie by talking about her regret for working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski that sounded unconvincing to the ominous Film Twitter. Then, another queer period drama, Mona Fastvold’s The World to Come, started to take the attention away at Venice. And finally, the movie premiered. The reaction? Cold. Critics came out mixed with the movie, with many of them comparing it negatively to last year’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and saying that it’s too dull and alienating. Does that mean that all is lost? Not exactly. While the movie (which, considering the genre, really needs critics' support to get into the Best Picture category) has been dismissed, the acting by Winslet and Ronan has been received positively. Now that so many other contenders have been dropping out of the year, they might get some room to campaign from a (social) distance.
-Another Round (trailer): Speaking of TIFF premieres, a film that had a better time at the Canadian festival was the reunion between director Thomas Vinterberg and star Mads Mikkelsen, who reunited years after making the stirring drama The Hunt (not the one with Betty Gilpin carrying a bad political satire, the one about a Danish teacher wrongly accused of sexual abuse). This time, the material is lighter, being a dramedy about four teachers who decide to test out a theory about how people can live and work a little better if they increase the level of alcohol in their blood. Critics really liked the way the movie dealt with alcoholism, and Toronto audiences made it a runner up for the People’s Choice Award of the festival. In a year without so much exposure from other festivals, this Cannes 2020 selection could make a candidate for the Best International Film category.
-Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (trailer): Surprise, new Borat film! While Sacha Baron Cohen made headlines several times this year because of stunts that people assumed were about a second season of Who is America?, the Internet was shocked when, in early September, it was confirmed that it was actually a very niiiiice return from the journalist character that made him famous, shot during quarantine. In a matter of weeks after the reveal, the sequel got sold to Amazon Prime and got a release date for October 23. Why so soon? Well, apparently the movie, which got him in trouble with Rudy Giuliani and other people, is about Borat taking his daughter on a road trip to give her as a bride to VP Mike Pence. Even if this movie doesn’t manage to achieve the feats of the 2006 movie (which got a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, let’s remember), it will help Baron Cohen’s image a lot, because it will come a week after his big Oscar play.
-Cherry: While everybody knows them mostly because of their contributions to the MCU, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and actor Tom Holland are trying to branch out together. Now Apple has bought into their efforts, paying more than 40 million dollars to acquire their new crime drama, about the life of former Army medic Nico Walker, who started robbing banks after his days in Iraq left him with PTSD and a pill addiction. Will Holland manage this time to escape from the shadow of “oh, jeez, Mr. Stark” Spider-Man before Chaos Walking or the Uncharted movie come out? That’s a question for another day.
-Da 5 Bloods (trailer): Talk about timing. Merely days after the country was mobilized by the police brutality that continues to divide the United States, Spike Lee premiered his new war drama on Netflix. In a vibrant, disjointed but passionate portrait of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam to search for their fallen leader and some treasure, Lee struck gold yet again with his usual fans, even though the moving of the Oscar ceremony threatened to make it harder to remind Academy voters about this movie. However, with an astounding performance from Delroy Lindo (who is confirmed to be campaigned in the Best Actor category) and a supporting turn from Chadwick Boseman which got reframed with the news of his bravery in life and death, this has what it takes to fight for a spot in the Best Picture lineup.
-Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (trailer): When it became clear that quarantine wasn’t gonna be a breeze, the first movie in consideration wise enough to move a little further ahead in the calendar was this adaptation of the hit West End production about a gay British teenager who dreams of becoming a drag queen and get his family and schoolmates to accept his sexuality. With a release date on February 26, 20th Century Studios (man, it’s weird to not use Fox in that name) hopes to strike gold, with a cast that mixes young unknowns, familiar names (Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and my boy Ralph Ineson) and the previously nominated legend that is Richard E. Grant (who is playing a former drag queen named Loco Chanelle), now taking advantage of the move of other musicals like Annette, In The Heights and West Side Story. I mean, this has at the very least some Golden Globes nods in the bag.
-French Exit: Before its premiere as the closing film of the NYFF, many pundits were expecting this surreal comedy to be somewhat of a comeback for past Best Actress nominee Michelle Pfeiffer, who here plays a close to penniless widow who moves to Paris with her son (Lucas Hedges) and cat, who also happens to be her reincarnated husband (Tracy Letts). However, the first reactions for the film adaptation of the Patrick deWitt novel were all over the place, with some people feeling cold by the execution of the weirdness and others being won over. Still, everybody had good things to say about Michelle Pfeiffer’s performance, but after the mixed reception to the rest of Azazel Jacobs’ film she really would need a lot of critics support to get anywhere near the Best Actress category. With a release date on February 12, it seems that Sony Pictures Classics is skipping the critics awards, and the distributor has a couple of big competitors above this one.
-Good Joe Bell: Every year, there are movies with big stars that go to festivals full of hope for praises and awards. Some of them work and go on, others don’t and get forgotten about. Mark Wahlberg tried to remind people that he occasionally is a good actor with a true life drama where he plays a father who decides to walk across America to raise awareness about bullying after his son, tormented for being gay, commits suicide. The film by Reinaldo Marcus Green premiered at TIFF, and the reaction was… not great. Some critics defended it, but most saw it as a flawed, baity product starring a man with a history of hate. Still, it got bought by a distributor: Solstice Studios, a new player in the game which just released its first movie, Unhinged (yup, the one about Russell Crowe road raging). While they paid 20 million dollars for Good Joe Bell, it’s clear that this won’t get near the Oscar telecast.
-Hillbilly Elegy: While many movies this year have some level of anticipation, Film Twitter is bracing for this movie in the “is this gonna be the next Green Book?” way. Ron Howard’s adaptation of J.D. Vance’s memoir about his low income life in a poor rural community in Ohio has many fearing about the overuse of tropes involving what’s called white trash porn, but rarely, Netflix has kept silent about this release. Even though it has Oscar bridesmaids Glenn Close (7 nominations) and Amy Adams (6 nominations), the streamer has not even released a photo of the movie, which supposedly will come out in November. And if you want another bad omen, take a look at the lower levels of this list by a familiar voice.
-I’m Thinking of Ending Things (trailer): Speaking of Netflix, did you know that there is a new Charlie Kaufman there, right now? While his adaptation of the dark novel by Iain Reid, seemingly about a woman (Jessie Buckley) who is taken by her boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to meet his parents (Toni Collette and David Thewlis), got the usual reception of confusion and praise that follows his movies, the release was followed for what befalls most of the Netflix original movies: a couple of days in the Top 10, and then it fell into the void. While Buckley and Plemons deliver great work in this demented, melancholic story, it’s hard to see this movie getting anything else than a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for Charlie. And that’s a long shot.
-I’m Your Woman: Following the little seen but critically acclaimed Miss Stevens and Fast Color, Julia Hart started 2020 with a Disney+ adaptation of the YA book Stargirl, and now she follows it with a drama for Amazon that will have its world premiere as the opening film of the AFI fest on October 15. In this movie, Rachel Brosnahan hopes to translate her TV success with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to the big screen, playing a woman in the ‘70s that has to go on the run with her kid due to her husband’s crimes.
-Judas and the Black Messiah (trailer): Even if this doesn’t end up winning any awards, it has a real shot at being the best trailer of 2020. Formerly titled Jesus Was My Homeboy, this biographical drama by Shaka King tells the tale of two men: Fred Hampton (Kaluuya), an activist and Black Panther leader, and William O’Neal (Stanfield), the FBI agent sent to infiltrate the party and arrest him. While the trailer for this movie promised a release “only in theaters”, we shall see if Warner Bros backs down from that fight.
-Let Them All Talk: While we’re on the subject of Warner Bros, we have to mention what’s happening with HBO Max. While the start of the streaming service hasn’t been good (I mean, there are still people confused about that name) and it lead to some people assume will cause many firings, it has begun to make some buzzed titles on TV, like Close Enough, Raised by Wolves and the remains of the DC Universe failed streaming service. Now, to make a mark in the movie business, the streamer has a new Steven Soderbergh movie, a comedy that stars Meryl Streep as a celebrated author that takes her friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) and her nephew (Lucas Hedges) in a cruise to find fun and come to terms with the past, while he flirts with a literary agent (Gemma Chan). While it doesn’t have a date yet, it’s confirmed to release in 2020, and at least we know that it can’t be worse than The Laundromat.
-Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: While the expectations for the next film adaptation of an August Wilson acclaimed play were already high, the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman made this Netflix release one of the most anticipated movies of the season, considering this is his final movie. While past Supporting Actress winner Viola Davis takes the lead playing blues singer Ma Rainey in this tale of a heated recording session with her bandmates, her agent and her producer in 1927, Chadwick Boseman has a turn as the trumpeter Levee that was already being considered for awards, and now has even more people waiting to see. The thing is that one of the biggest competitions for Boseman this year will be Boseman himself, for his already acclaimed supporting turn on Da 5 Bloods, also released by Netflix. While the streamer will have to decide which of Chadwick’s performances will get the bigger campaign, this film by director George C. Wolfe has a cushy date set for December 18, and Viola is gunning hard for this movie to win.
-Mank (trailer): As you may have noticed by now, Netflix has a lot of plates spinning around this season, and this is the big one. After befriending the service with House of Cards and Mindhunter, David Fincher is going black and white to tackle a script by his late father Jack, about the making of the classic of classics, Citizen Kane. More specifically, the making of the script, with previous Oscar winner Gary Oldman playing the lead role of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, while accompanied by Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Tuppence Middleton, Charles Dance and Tom Burke. After watching the first trailer of his satire of 1930’s Hollywood (that will release on streaming on December 4), it’s clear that this is gonna be catnip to old Academy voters, and it would be really hard for this to miss the Best Picture line up. Unless it’s a complete cinematic disaster, Mank is bank.
-Minari (trailer): While the last edition of Sundance took place in January, quarantine makes you feel like it took place two years ago. This year, the big winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition was a dramedy by Lee Isaac Chung, about a Korean family in the ‘80s who suddenly gets moved by their father (Steven Yeun) to Arkansas, to start a farm. Even though the reviews have been great, distributor A24 hasn’t really had a big, Oscar nominated hit for the last couple of years, and the COVID-19 crisis made them delay all their releases. But when we were ready to write this off, a new trailer for the movie came out, confirming that it’s in the game of this awards season. Maybe the pandemic will be of help to A24, considering that one of the reasons they haven’t had success is that they divided their attention into too many releases, and ended up getting not much. This time, they are betting all on Lee who, even if this doesn’t go anywhere, also has a new gig coming up as the director of the live action remake of Your Name.
-News of the World (sneak peek): So much of this year has felt like a game of chicken between a virus and movie studios. While many movies chose to skip this year altogether, Universal remains firm (for now) with its plans to open a wide movie on Christmas Day, with a Western that reunites Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks in an enticing premise. In this drama based on Paulette Jiles’ novel, Hanks plays a traveling newsreader in the aftermath of the American Civil War, who is tasked with reuniting an orphaned girl with her living relatives. While the first sneak peek of the movie looks promising, the future is still in the air.
-Nomadland (trailer): While the world burns around Hollywood, Searchlight is betting big on Chloe Zhao’s new film. Using the strategy of taking the spotlight while the rest of the contenders is uncertain about how or when to be released, the indie drama began its journey at Venice, with critics raving about the story of a woman (two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand) who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. At the end of the fest, the movie won the coveted Golden Lion. To put that into perspective, the last three winners of the award were past Best Picture nominees The Shape of Water, Roma and Joker, with The Shape of Water (also distributed by Searchlight) also winning the big prize. After drawing critical acclaim following its virtual showing on TIFF and NYFF, Nomadland seems like the first lock in the Best Picture line up. Still, there are obstacles ahead. Will Zhao break the disappointment of the last few years, when deserving candidates for Best Director got blocked by the likes of Adam McKay and Todd Phillips? And will McDormand manage to get near a third Oscar, following a recent win for Three Billboards in Ebbing, Missouri? Time will tell.
-On the Rocks (trailer): While she hasn’t been near the Oscars for a while, Sofia Coppola is still a name that draws attention. This time, she opened the NYFF with a dramedy about a young mother (Rashida Jones) who reunites with her playboy father (Bill Murray, also reuniting with Sofia after Lost in Translation) on an adventure through New York to find out if her husband (Marlon Wayans) is cheating on her. The consensus seems to be that, while light and not near her best work, it’s still a fun and breezy movie, with a very good turn by Murray. While many would assume that this A24 production will disappear into the abyss when it releases on Apple TV+ on October 23, the dropping out of many candidates gives the movie a chance to, at least, fight for some Golden Globes.
-One Night in Miami (sneak peek): Following her recent Oscar and Emmy wins for If Beale Street Could Talk and Watchmen, Regina King is still striking hard, and this time, she’s doing it as a director. For her big screen debut as a filmmaker, she chose to adapt Kemp Powers’ play that dramatizes a real meeting on February 25, 1964, when Muhammad Ali (Eli Goree) followed an iconic win with a hangout session with Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge). Opening at Venice, the film received glowing reviews, with many praising King (even though some said that the movie doesn’t fully translate the play to the film medium) and the actors’ performances, especially Ben-Adir and Odom Jr. (who, it should be said, also wrote an original song for the end credits of the movie, which could help his Oscar chances). Amazon Prime is hoping that this is their big contender this year, with plans of a theatrical release on Christmas and a streaming release on January 15. Judging by the praise this got at festival season, it has a chance to go a long way.
-Over the Moon (trailer): In a year with not that many contenders for Best Animated Feature, Netflix is betting on a musical adventure directed by the legendary Glen Keane, a classic Disney animator who recently won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for co-directing Dear Basketball. While our expectations were lowered by the first trailer for the movie, centered around a Chinese girl who builds a rocket ship and blasts off to the Moon in hopes of meeting a legendary Goddess, it’s still safe to assume that it has a shot at being nominated for something. Netflix also hopes that you like its big candidate for Best Original Song, which really, really sounds like a Disney ballad.
-Pieces of a Woman: While this year doesn’t have the amount of surprise contenders that a regular Oscar season usually has, we still have some movies that sneaked through festival season. The first one was the new, somber drama by Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó, known for the doggy uprising pic White God, and the not-so-well-received sci-fi Jupiter’s Moon. This time, we follow a woman (Vanessa Kirby) whose life is torn apart after a home birth at the hands of a flustered midwife (Molly Parker) ends in tragedy, and then leads to a court battle that also makes her confront her husband (Shia LaBeouf) and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn). While the movie had mixed reactions, Kirby had plenty of raves in her direction, particularly concerning her performance during a 25-minute birth sequence that is said to be brutal. That brutality paid off, though, because Kirby ended up winning Best Actress at Venice, and Netflix bought the movie, which also has Martin Scorsese as an executive producer. If the Academy wants to crown a new face in the scene, Kirby is the one who will be targeted, following her acclaimed turn in The Crown and her supporting roles in blockbusters like Mission Impossible: Fallout and Hobbs & Shaw.
-Promising Young Woman (trailer): When theaters started to close because of the pandemic, Universal started the push of their movies going straight to VOD, with titles including Trolls World Tour and Never Rarely Sometimes Always. However, there was a title that was supposed to premiere in April, and then suddenly disappeared from existence. It was the directorial debut of actress Emerald Fennell, who wrote a black comedy with touches of a thriller, centered on a woman in her thirties (Carey Mulligan) whose bright future was derailed by a traumatic event, and who’s now looking for revenge. While the reaction to its premiere at Sundance wasn’t enough to consider a Best Picture run, the twisted performance by Mulligan earned her the best praise since the last time she was nominated for an Oscar, a decade ago for An Education. Now, Focus Features is planning to open the movie at Christmas, and are positioning Carey for a run at Best Actress.
-Rebecca (trailer): When the news came out saying that Ben Wheatley would adapt Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller novel for Netflix, many were shocked. Some people considered the chance that this was an awards play by the cult director, who is doing the same work that earned Alfred Hitchcock his only Best Picture win. But seeing the trailer for this new version, with Lily James playing the newly married young woman who finds herself battling the shadow of her husband's (Armie Hammer) dead first wife Rebecca, we have to wonder if there’s a point to the existence of this remake. We will find out if there’s any awards chances for this movie on October 21, when it releases on streaming. Let’s hope that Kristin Scott Thomas has something to play with as Mrs. Danvers.
-Respect (trailer): Every year, there’s one or two actors who announce to the world “I want an Oscar” and campaign like their lives depended on it. Last time, it was Taron Egerton (accompanied by Elton John, who actually ended up winning another Oscar). This year, it is the turn of Jennifer Hudson, who is playing Aretha Franklin in a biopic directed by first timer Liesl Tommy, and who’s hoping that this attempt at awards ends up more like Dreamgirls than like Cats. She has been doing announcement trailers (a year in advance), quarantine tributes, award show tributes, and every possible thing to get the industry to notice that she’s playing Aretha. Hey, Rami Malek and Renee Zellweger did it in the last few years, why can’t she. With a release date of January 15, Hudson wants that gold.
-Soul (trailer): Disney may be the studio that suffered the biggest hit because of the pandemic. Their parks are a loss, most of their big productions had to stop because of quarantine, and theaters in many parts of the world are closed. After the failure of Tenet for Warner Bros. and the experiment of the mouse house of charging people 30 dollars to see Mulan (which didn’t work at all), many wondered if Disney was gonna delay the new production by Pixar, written and directed by Pete Docter, who brought Oscar gold to his home with Up and Inside Out. The movie, which centers on a teacher (Jamie Foxx) who dreams of becoming a jazz musician and, just as he’s about to get his big break, ends up getting into an accident that separates his soul from his body, had a lot of promise, but the speculation of lost money was also a concern. Finally, Disney decided to release the movie on Christmas, but only on Disney Plus, causing another failure for theaters, but assuring that Disney at least can get more subscribers to its streaming service. And the movie? Well, it just premiered at the London Film Festival, and the critics are saying it’s Pixar at its best, with praises going from the look, to the script by co-director Kemp Powers (who also wrote the play of One Night in Miami, so he has many chances for a nod), to the score by Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste. That means that it’s already a top contender to win Best Animated Feature, and this may not be the only category in which the movie is gonna get nominated.
-Supernova (trailer): If there’s a theme this year in terms of Oscar contenders, it might be dementia. One of the examples of this is a small road movie directed by Hairy Macqueen, which premiered to good reviews at the San Sebastian festival. This drama centers on a trip taken by Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci), partners for 20 years, who travel across England reuniting with friends and family, because Tusker was diagnosed with early onset dementia. While usually the big awards role is usually the one of the person who suffers the illnesses, some reviewers are calling Firth’s work as the supporting companion some of the best of his career. With Bleecker Street buying the rights for a US release, this is a little film that could still make some moves.
-Tenet (trailer): For the first five months of quarantine, the big narrative in the world of film was “Christopher Nolan is gonna save cinemas”. But after postponing the release of the mind bending actioner for months on end, creating big demands and expectations to theater owners, and finally releasing as the sacrificial lamb of Hollywood, Warner Bros ended up seeing the opposite effect. Even though Tom Cruise loved to be back at the movies, critics didn’t share enough excitement to make a spy movie that goes backwards worth the possibility of dying of coronavirus. The audiences didn’t show up as much, and those who did attend, mostly complained about the sound mixing and the plot. After all the sacrifice, it’s highly unlikely that Tenet goes beyond technical awards. Let’s start the “Travis Scott for Best Original Song” campaign now, before it’s too late.
-The Boys in the Band (trailer): The Ryan Murphy blank check for Netflix has been interesting to follow. On the one hand, we have his new TV shows, which go from not existing (The Politician), to alternate movie history that doesn’t know how alternate history works (Hollywood), to a challenge of how much TV will you stomach if Sarah Paulson and other middle aged actresses are campy in it (Ratched). And now, we are seeing his producing hand over the movie side, which starts with the new film adaptation of the cult play from 1968, which was already a movie in 1970 and recently jumped to Broadway in 2018. The cast from the recent Broadway production (which includes Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells) stars in Joe Mantello’s movie, telling the story of a group of gay friends in pre-Stonewall New York who reunite for a birthday party and end up revealing a lot of open wounds. While this movie got good reviews from critics, it kinda disappeared without a sound after beginning to stream on Netflix at the end of September. Unless the service wants to campaign for Golden Globes, this film is lost in the algorithm.
-The Devil All the Time (trailer): Another September release on Netflix was the new psychological thriller by Antonio Campos (Simon Killer, Christine) who didn’t manage to continue his streak of intense and terrifying character dramas with his messy adaptation of the dark novel by Donald Ray Pollock. Wasting a cast that includes Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Bill Skarsgard, Jason Clarke and Riley Keough, this twisted period piece managed to stay for a while in the Top 10, but the reactions from critics were mixed, and audiences were busy asking what was happening with Pattinson’s Southern accent (which with The King makes two years in a row, baby). The many prognosticators who had hopes for an awards play moved on a while ago.
-The Father (trailer): It’s safe to say at this point that Anthony Hopkins is a lock for a Best Actor nomination at the next Oscars. After its premiere in Sundance, every prognosticator pointed in his direction, and for the next few months he swept praise for his harrowing portrayal of an old man grappling with his age as he develops dementia, causing pain to his beleaguered daughter (recent winner Olivia Colman, who also got praised). Sony Pictures Classics will make Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his acclaimed play its big contender of the season, using Hopkins (who this year got a nom for The Two Popes) as a starter to also get Colman, Zeller and the movie nominated.
-The Human Voice (trailer): And speaking of Sony Pictures Classics, it’s almost safe to say that they have another Oscar in the bag this year. That’s because they just bought Pedro Almodóvar’s short film, his English-speaking debut that is an adaptation of the play by Jean Cocteau. In his version (that was acclaimed by critics after premiering in Venice), Tilda Swinton plays the woman waiting at the end of a phone, expecting to hear from his ex-lover who abandoned her. Considering how the competition for Best Live Action Short Film has become somewhat lacking in the last few years (I mean, have you seen Skin), this should be an easy award to win, especially considering how beloved Almodóvar is in the Academy, which nominated him this year for the great Pain and Glory.
-The Life Ahead: While we’re talking about legends, it’s time to talk about Sophia Loren. 16 years after her last leading role in a movie, the Italian icon returns with a drama that was bought by Netflix, who plans to campaign for her as Best Actress and for the movie in the Best International Film category. Directed by Edoardo Ponti (who is also Sophia’s son), this movie centers on a Holocaust survivor who takes in a 12-year-old boy who recently robbed her, in a contemporary adaptation of Romain Gary’s novel The Life Before Us. Netflix has set a date for November 13 to release this movie, and the campaign seems to be about the narrative of seeing Loren winning another Oscar 60 years after she won her first one for Two Women, by Vittorio De Sica.
-The Midnight Sky: Based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight, this collaboration between George Clooney and Netflix is once again making us ask one thing. Are we gonna get the director Clooney of Good Night and Good Luck, or are we gonna get the director Clooney of Leatherheads, The Ides of March, The Monuments Men and Suburbicon? Let’s hope he breaks his streak of blandness with this sci-fi story, which makes us think a little bit of Gravity: A lonely scientist in the Arctic (Clooney) races to stop a group of astronauts led by Felicity Jones from returning to a devastated Earth. With a release set for December, we have to hope that this is more than some Top 10 filler that will evaporate from existence in a week’s time.
-The Prom: In probably the biggest blank check of the Ryan Murphy deal with Netflix, this musical he’ll direct is based on the Tony-nominated show about a group of Broadway losers (Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and James “boo” Corden) who try to find a viral story to get back in the spotlight, and end up going to a town in Indiana to help a lesbian high school student who has been banned from bringing her girlfriend to the prom. While it’s clear that this December 11 release is gonna sweep the Golden Globes, the emptiness of this year compared to others could clear the way for some Oscar nominations, including Meryl and the obligatory original song added to a preexisting musical for easy clout.
-The Trial of the Chicago 7 (trailer): When it was announced that Paramount was selling Aaron Sorkin’s new movie to Netflix, some people saw it as a studio dumping a failed awards vehicle to be forgotten. However, the excuse that Sorkin wanted to release this movie before the US presidential elections seems to be true, because critics really enjoyed his old school courtroom drama, centered around the trial on counter cultural activists in the late ‘60s. Everybody praised uniformly the huge cast, that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, William Hurt, Michael Keaton and Mark Rylance, which guarantees a SAG awards nomination (but makes it difficult to decide which actors will actually get nominated for Oscars). With a reaction that brings to mind the days of A Few Good Men and is the best reception he got since his Oscar winning script for The Social Network, the film faces a couple of hurdles. First of all, it got positioned as the frontrunner in the Best Picture race by some people, which instantly puts a target on its back. Then, we have to consider that the movie releases on Netflix this Friday, October 16, which makes it the first big contender this year to face the world, and which in these times of lockdown will probably make the reception to Marriage Story and The Irishman from last year look like a walk in the park. I mean, there are some people who aren’t swayed by Sorkin, and for good reason.
-The United States vs. Billie Holiday: While Paramount was quick to hand The Trial of the Chicago 7 to Netflix, there’s another movie that the studio kept to play in the upcoming awards season. This biographical drama follows the life of another famous musician, Billie Holiday (Andra Day), and we see the journey of her career in jazz as she is targeted by the Federal Department of Narcotics with an undercover sting operation led by Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher (Trevante Rhodes), with whom she had a tumultuous affair. While the movie counts with a screenplay credit by Pulitzer winner Suzan-Lori Parks, the big question mark is the film’s director, Lee Daniels, who hit it big with Precious and then had results that were disastrous (The Paperboy) or financially successful, but not awards-wise (Lee Daniels’ The Butler). However, Paramount trusts in this movie, and with a release date on February 12, they want to make a splash.
-Wolfwalkers (trailer): While the attempts by Apple TV+ to establish themselves as a player in the TV world go from trainwrecks (See) to forgettable (The Morning Show) to eventually great (see Ted Lasso, everybody, this is not a joke), their plans to make a name in the film business have something to do with this year’s Oscars. While Cherry can come or go, they have a solid contender for the Best Feature Documentary with Boys State, but their big dog this year is the new movie by Cartoon Saloon, an Irish studio responsible for the acclaimed The Secret of Kells, The Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner, all of which were nominated for Best Animated Feature. This time, Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart direct a story about a young apprentice hunter who journeys with her father to Ireland to help wipe out the last wolf pack. But everything changes when she befriends a free-spirited girl from a mysterious tribe rumored to transform into wolves by night. After getting critically acclaimed following its premiere at TIFF, this is a surefire contender for this year’s Best Animated Feature category, and Apple is gonna parade it before its streaming release on December 11. Also, while you watch that, you could watch a couple of episodes of Ted Lasso, too. It’s a really good show, it’s all I’m saying.
Anyways, that’s all the news from the last few months of festivals. No matter what happens next, this is gonna be a long, long, long race.

2020.10.12 15:26 JAMESFAULKNERSS The Batman Postponed To March 2022

The Batman is again pushed back to the 2022 release. It is an upcoming Matt Reeves movie with a new Caped Crusader as Robert Pattinson.
📷The Batman is an upcoming superhero movie based on the DC Comics of the same name. Matt Reeves is the director of the film, and Peter Craig writes the screenplay. Pattinson is in the movie as Bruce Wayne or the Batman along with other actors like Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz, Barry Keoghan, Andy Serkis, Jayme Lawson, and Colin Farrell. And fans are impatiently waiting to watch the Reeve’s kind of Batman, but due to many challenges and circumstances, Warner Bros. has to push the releasing date back by several months.
The Batman is set during the hero’s second year of fighting crimes and which follows the corruption of Gotham City, a riddle obsessed serial killer, and faces the Riddler.
Originally the movie was being developed by Ben Affleck who later stepped down from direction in 2017 and stuck to the writing, producing, and acting of the film after that Reeves took over the directorial part and reworked on the story of the younger Batman. In 2019, Affleck left the project entirely, and Pattinson is then cast as the new Batman for the film.
The shooting of the movie started in London, England in January 2020 but the shoot was delayed due to the global pandemic COVID-19. The filming resumed in early September, but the team again had to halt it because as few days Pattinson was tested COVID-19 positive. However, the shooting continued after two weeks with Robert returning safely.
Now Warner Bros. has decided to release the most anticipated movie, The Batman on 4 March 2022 instead of the October release in 2021.
The delay by the team and the production makes sense as during this challenging time the crew has to work accordingly. While most countries are frightened that the cold will hit in the health crisis might become deadlier. And knowing the chances, the shooting of the movie might again shut down with no clear timeline. Warner Bros. also would plan it more strategically by forcing the matter not making the original target date. Hence, it is essential to reschedule the slate to have the luxury of picking the prime slots.
Meanwhile, superhero movies offer different excitement to the public, and hence the franchise can expect a big box office haul despite the delay. It is also good to note that Pattinson and Reeves’ The Batman is releasing three-week before the release of Doctor Strange of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The above are some latest updates regarding the movie The Batman. I hope you liked the article.

2020.10.09 03:55 undertheweathert I’m really confused and sad in my relationship and need help

This is my first post ever so I’m sorry if I get something wrong but here we go
This is all over maybe a 3 or 4 month period
So I (17m) have been with my girlfriend (17f) for a bit over a year and we’ve had ups and downs but have Been able to talk about it and I love our relationship. But lately it’s been really weird and has made me feel upset. It started when she had told me her childhood crush was Ralph Macchio from the original karate kid and that’s fine. She said she still finds him attractive even now and that’s fine as well. But after that she asked me if Ralph Macchio could be her “hall pass” I said it’s fine as I didn’t want to seem so jealous or overbearing but it did make me feel a little upset. Which I could tell she knew because of the way she talked after asking me. But she didn’t address it but after that she asked if we could watch the original karate kid together the 3rd one which is cheesy (we have been seeing each other once a week) and that’s what really got me. I overthink things easily so in my head it’s like “why does she want to watch the cheesy karate kid?” “Is she imagining herself with him?” “does she fantasize about it?” But I agreed to nonetheless. We watched maybe half of it and then just stopped. And cuddled and talked.
The next thing is she started watching Harry Potter and got really into it. Making her Halloween costume about it and reading the books after all the movies which is great she can love Harry Potter as much as she wants. I mean I love Harry Potter and even suggested we do Harry Potter couple costumes. But she ignored me saying that And it began again. She said she thinks Draco malfoy is really attractive and her and her friends talk about them and the characters they think are attractive and joke around about it. I of course didn’t enjoy hearing it. But didn’t tell her right away. But after a bit of it I confronted her later and said I don’t really enjoy that she calls other people attractive. That it makes me upset and feel weird hearing it. But that I understand her and her friends talk about boys and she’s gonna like other people and find them attractive and that it’s a celebrity so it shouldn’t matter. But that’s how it makes me feel. And her response was that it shouldn’t matter and she’s not gonna apologize for thinking they are attractive cause they are celebrities she’ll never meet. That she’s with me for a reason and loves me and only me. And I told her thank you for talking to me about it though i was still left feeling confused about it.
A few days pass and we are doing fine doing okay. But then we have another talk. She starts it by saying things feel weird between us and asked if I felt the same and I said yes. She said things feel really routine and that she has no excitement or nervousness with me though she doesn’t want it to seem like she doesn’t enjoy hanging out. She said things don’t feel fresh and new like they used too. I told her I still feel excitement with her and love being with her and hanging out but I understand how things feel routine considering we are in a pandemic and can’t go on a lot of dates still living with our parents neither of us able to drive but we still get to see each other every week which I love and cherish and look forward to and personally don’t care if all we do is cuddle and watch a movie every time cause I love being with her. But she seemed like she just didn’t know. So I told her I understand and get if she wants to take a break from things and that I get she’s going through things and I love her and am here for her and she said thank you Since that she hasn’t given me a lot of words of affirmation. The “good morning luv bug❤️” went to just morning and the same with the goodnight texts. I mean we used to be all lovey dovey with each other at times. We used to talk about how much we love each other and how we can’t wait to lose our virginity together and that we love each other. But She’s really vague with her texts and takes a while to respond. And I feel like she ignores me a lot now. We haven’t sexted or been sexual in a long time since all this stuff. I found myself looking to see if she was active on Instagram or snap while still leaving me on delivered and she would go active and get off for a bit go active again and then go off and then text me and be off for a while after doing the same thing. And I feel like she will go on her phone texting everyone else she’s talking to and doing everything on her phone but text me until she knows she’s gonna put the phone down. And this started gradually at first at the start of it all and I’ve confronted her before but she said she doesn’t ignore me and is just busy and has things to do which we both work on weekends and are in school but we are in fall break so we don’t have school right now. She would leave me on read and I asked her about it and she said it’s only when she’s in school and opens it after joining her class call and just forgets to respond. But that hurt just a little. She doesn’t leave me on read really after that but I see she will be active in her phone and leave me on delivered for a bit talking to whoever or doing whatever. I feel like I’m not put first ever. Whether I’m the first one she texts in the morning or first to text out of the shower or first she thinks about. I just feel neglected a bit I guess. And one time I left her on read by accident cause I opened her message and my dad came in and talked to me. And she pointed it out so I told her and she seemed fine. But she used to leave me on read sometimes. she still leaves me on delivered for a while whether on her phone or not. And I think she knows I’m not in the best place but just doesn’t check up on me. I want to be open with her but it’s a problem I have being closed in. And I check on her all the time seeing how she’s doing. We aren’t lovey dovey now unless I instigate something kinda forcing her to say something whether it’s calling me cute or saying she loves me. Other than on time I got my first haircut after starting quarantine and she said she liked it. And I tried to be a little sexual one time and she just kinda brushed it off. And again I overthink I don’t know what she’s been doing really if she fantasizes about other people or if she is even cheating on me. But I don’t think she’s cheating or don’t want to. She really doesn’t seem like she would and we’ve talked about how bad it would be if one us did and have talked about it. And there’s so many things saying she wouldn’t or maybe I just want to hope she wouldn’t to fullest of my ability. But I don’t know.
She then started watching twilight. She talked about how much she loves it which is great. She can love twilight. But then she started talking about Robert Pattinson which I guess was her crush now. She talked about how she is all for team Edward and all that. She’s posts about him and talks about it with her friends. She watched all of the twilight movies and she told me she’s had dreams about her being Bella from twilight with him and dreams about him. Which I just hated hearing but I didn’t tell her. And thoughts start to rush in my head about how she probably fantasizes about him all the time and wishes she could be with him and would leave me in a heartbeat for him. I asked her if she wanted to come over the start of the next week and she said yes so we planned to see each other and I planned a bit of a date which was hard to get together which was yesterday we had our date. We went to a farm with a pumpkin patch and corn maze and all sorts of different activities and hung out there for a while before going to my place and talking relaxing for a bit before she would go home. But on the ride there I saw her lock screen is Robert Pattinson and not me anymore but I’m still her wallpaper and I think she noticed that I was upset from it cause she asked if I was okay but I just said yes. She also showed me a bracelet that said Edward with hearts all over it which is Robert Pattinson character In twilight. Which she just seemed so happy about and I don’t know I didn’t enjoy it. Which I also think she knew. She seemed really occupied while we were on our date she always kept her phone close texting people and it seemed like something else was on her mind. she hung out with her friends a bit ago and went on her phone maybe 3 times to text me during that. But she was just texting her friends and all that. Like she felt like she had to keep up with and wanted to but I don’t feel like she feels that way for me. And I don’t really know who she talks to I don’t know all her friends. So I didn’t like that. But at one point we were cuddling and she went onto TikTok and we were just browsing. But some guys tiktok came up which was just these two shirtless guys dancing who were all muscly and she was about to like it giggling like it was a joke and I said “You’re really going to do that” Then she didn’t. But then she decided to look up some other guy like that on tiktok saying “Let’s see how he is doing” She didn’t follow him but still knew his name and all that. And my head just started to rush with thoughts and I felt really overwhelmed about everything going on in this post so I hugged her and started crying. And I was just hugging her and she put her phone down and asked if I was okay and I said yes but I’m crying so she of course knew I was just by my voice and she was just holding me playing with my hair and I said I’m sorry and kept hugging her while trying to wipe my tears. But after that I said I’m good and she didn’t ask about it and just went back on her phone texting whoever and we cuddled and I played a game and she watched me play sometimes and would be on her phone. Texting her friends chat. Then she left. And when she did I went to my room and started crying after saying bye. I texted her I love her and she said the same back. And I wanted to talk to her about how I was feeling but I didn’t know cause I don’t want to be annoying or overbearing.
So I decided to talk to a friend finally telling someone all this and that friend said I should talk to her but leave the celebrity crush out cause it’s just a celebrity crush but it just feels like so much.
I don’t know what to do or how to confront her. But I know I want to and today it’s been kinda the same thing. Vague bland text that are far apart. So I just don’t know what to do so I need help. In all honesty I’m just scared. I’m absolutely terrified of losing her and that’s just it.... I’m scared Thank you if you read all this it does mean a lot :,)

2020.10.06 05:09 MatrixExplained Matrix 4 is now debuting on Dec. 22, 2021!!!! NEXT YEAR!!

The Batman” — starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader — had been scheduled for Oct. 1, 2021. It’s now set to open on March 4, 2022. As reported earlier on Monday, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic “Dune” is no longer premiering on Dec. 18 and will instead move to Oct. 1, 2021 on the date previously held by “The Batman.”
Other significant shifts include the Lana Wachowski-directed “Matrix 4” bowing several months earlier than expected. The upcoming sci-fi thriller — which sees the return of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss — had been set to open on April 1, 2022 and is now debuting on Dec. 22, 2021.

2020.09.29 14:43 Shop_Difficult Katherine Heigl

Ok so I see a lot of misconduct in this sub about Katherine Heigl and what happened and I am here to set the record straight. Ok about the Knocked Up movie I mean she wasn't wrong the movie was sexist, but people read way to much into that. In an interview she said 98% of the time she loved working there, but 2% she did not like what she was giving. And yes she came about it the wrong way, yes it was rude and petty but was she wrong? No. And the Grey's Anatomy thing, ok so I think we can all agree Izzie's storyline in season 4 sucked, like that was just bad writing. I mean she was a surgeon and was operating on deers? And she did not take her name of an Emmy award, but off of consideration. Sometimes actors agents put their names for awards and only 5 get chosen out of 100s of applicant I mean since she won one the year before, it wold make sense to put her name again. It was a small thing and she did not think anyone would notice, so when they did she just said the truth. And straightly after that she apologized profusely and tried to make amends. I think Katherine is just a very outspoken person with a big mouth.
And can we talk about how many male actors dissed their shows. Robert Pattinson dissed twilight on twitter, but he was "funny and relatable" Johnny Depp was accused of abusing his wife, but he got multi million dollar deals. ( i am not fully up to date with the Johnny Depp thing so sorry if the info is incorrect) And Robert Downey Jr. Like come on.
And the whole "hard to work with" " her co stars hate her" thing are lies. Justin Chambers himself talked about how much he loved her. He siad that she had a big mouth, but an even bigger heart. She was close to Kate Walsh. Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, TR Knight, and Patrick Dempsey. When she was on Roswell Majandra Delfino one of her co stars called her, her best friend. She was also close to Adam Rodriguez.( he was on criminal minds, and was also in Roswell.) Even Seth Rogen talked about how great of a person she is. Judd Apatow also came to her defense. Patrick Wilson defended her. And she was even on Suits just last year and seemed to get along with the cast. She also was not fired her contract was all the way to season 7, but she had just adopted her daughter and wanted to spend some time withe her. So she ended her contract early. And the shooting she was never suppose t come back to die. I have no idea where people got that from.
In conclusion I think Katherine Just spoke her mind and people took it way out of proportion. And the cat litter commercials everyone seems to bring up is part of an organization she helps, which is where they help animals. She seems like a very good person who is just very vocal and outspoken.
Tell me what you think.

2020.09.28 23:58 eiggteen Not even an unpopular opinion, just one that consistently brushed under the rug

Most young women aren’t attracted to older men.
I don’t know why the contrary is proposed to men.
I (now 20f) was 16 - young and near my peak - and still I was never drawn to older men (at 16, ‘old’ for me was over 19).
Nothing changed when I got to 18. The chemistry was just never there with older guys (at 18, old for me was now 23+). I was an 18 year old girl - pretty picky and immature - but they seemed boring to me.
Although, now that I’m 20 and not as immature - I’m aware that (in general) 23-38 isn’t old at all, far from it. But dating wise, I’d still considered 26+ to be too ‘old’ for me
Even in my teens (16-18), the only significantly older guy I could fantasise about was Robert Pattinson. Even then, I would fantasise him as a 17-19 year old (Cedric Diggory), and not his actual age (his actual age being 30; he’s still hot don’t get it twisted lol).
At 18, the (non-existent) chemistry with older men is nowhere near the same compared to guys who were my age or near (18-23). Tbh, maybe it was me.
But at 18, being with guys around my age was so exciting. There was always this undeniable flirtatious and cheeky aura - a slight sexual tension maybe. No matter how much I tried to hide it. Even with friends. There was always this playful energy and connection. And I still have the same feelings now that I’m 20
But when with older men, there was nothing. nothing lol. It was like clumpy, half-dried paint. Again, it could simply be me.
I think men around my age emit this playful and cheeky aura without downplaying their masculinity. Reason being that the connection with men around my age is more fluid.
Playful and masculine. The two traits go quite well hand in hand, it’s super charming.
This is obviously applicable to both sexes, but there this strong emphasis (usually emphasised by single guys I think) that young women are naturally drawn to men in their 40-70s.
I’ve never understood why I would be attracted to some that old, let alone want a long term relationship. I want kids lol.
And really, this only applies to the very small % of extremely rich old men; even then - most women want a quiet and private life, so many won’t be attracted to the idea of getting with a extravagantly rich man who is 20-40 years older.
Most respectable rich men get married pretty young - in their 20s/30s - and are usually quite happy with their marriage. They usually have a long-lasting marriage and a few kids by 50. So they have no reason to desperately tag onto every 16-30 year old girl/woman they come across.
An old rich man with no spouse and inconsistent relationships - scavenging for 16-30 year old women - screams midlife crisis to most women. That in itself is a red flag.
As a man begins to age, it that playful aura warps into a creepy and bland aura. It’s not always accurate and true; the man may be a playful, loving dad with a happy family. But he’ll be perceived as boring and creepy - without context - at face value; hence why so many 16-20 year old girls/women are quick to write older men off as creepy.
It’s life, the same will happen to me. All of us. It’s probably already happened. But we accept it, why can’t most men?
Of course some women will be drawn to older men, but that’s similar how some men are drawn to older women.
I feel like this topic completely excludes women’s point of view (ew I sound like a feminist lol, but it’s true). I say this simply because so many other women agreed with me when discussing this.
But if you look into the male perspective of this, you find the polar opposite. They’re all truly convinced that most 18-30 year old women are most sexually attracted to 40-70 year olds.
Well .... they’re all okay with it until you ask them:
‘would you let your 18 year old daughter date a 40 year old?’ lol.
Then it was like a hall full of stutters aha.
Anyways , give me your opinion. Anyone.
Disagree or agree idc

2020.09.18 13:52 nextzero182 I watch a horror movie every day, here's everything I watched in August

(2019) The Lighthouse 9.5/10
The visuals are jaw-dropping; almost every single frame of this film is photographic. The soundtrack is stripped down to just these haunting sounds of fog horns and piss buckets. The package everything is delivered in, from an artistic standpoint, is so memorable. The performances by Pattinson and Dafoe are both some of the best I’ve seen this entire year and really, the decade…possibly of all time. They deliver this brilliant script’s dialogue with such passion, humor and intensity. The story in this film is shrouded in mystery but the clues and tools needed to decipher it do exist and with a re-watch, finding them felt so rewarding.
(2007) Zodiac 9/10
This is one of my favorite Fincher movies and for anyone familiar with his stellar catalogue, that’s a bold claim. It feels so real and lived-in. The cast is absolutely stacked but so complimentary. It’s not the most violent film, it’s much more story driven but the moments of violence feel fucking powerful. The horror in this film isn’t about the serial killer, it’s really about obsession and Gyllenhaal absolutely nails his performance to bring that aspect home. Despite this film’s high praise by critics and regular assholes like myself, it is a slow-burn. It’s long and tedious and that aspect, which I love, could easily turn someone off.
(1981) Raiders of the Lost Ark 9/10
Raiders of the Lost Arc is such an important movie to me. It helped open my eyes to darker content as a child, for better or worse. It also introduced me to one of my favorite characters of all time, Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford doesn’t play a superhero in this movie, he’s very flawed and mortal. Yet, somehow he always seems to prevail, despite dire circumstances. Everything that could ever be said about this film has been said, I’m just here to show my appreciation.
(2014) Spring 8.5/10
This movie is wonderful, raw, natural and intriguing. It’s not over-acted or overthought in any way. It’s fucked up and complicated. This felt like an homage to Possession but the love story aspect really shines through. It feels helpless and hopeful at the same time. Benson’s script is amazing. The influences are impossible not to see but the dialogue is incredibly natural. The reactions are the same. I’ve always said that films shot in idyllic landscapes are a blank canvas for horror. There’s so much beautiful contrast.
(2007) Timecrimes 8.5/10
I loved this movie when I first saw it but upon rewatching it, I can’t help but stress its influence in the time-loop horror sub-genre. Sure films like Primer definitely helped pave the way but Timecrimes really manages to focus less on the science fiction and more on the horrifying consequences that come with time travel. I really enjoyed Karra Elajalde’s performance, his character’s physical and mental degradation throughout the film is really a high point to me. Almost all of these films on paper would seem predictable in concept but Timecrimes is just another one that manages to pull you in despite that. A part of me knew exactly how this was going to play out but a bigger part of me was too engrossed to be sure.
(2018) Gwen 8.5/10
This movie is an atmospheric slow burn down to the T so if that’s a sub-genre you generally don’t enjoy, this isn’t going to be something to change your mind. With that being said, it’s an incredibly heartbreaking story that, while exists in the folk-horror genre, subverts any and all expectations. The characters are real and suffering in this sort of beautiful but also incredibly bleak, barren landscape. Eleanor Worthington-Cox and Maxine Peaks carry the entire film. The story itself, while simple, yet powerful, is unwoven tediously, evoking all sorts of dread. I don’t think- scratch that, I know everyone is not going to like this movie. The plot is way too stripped down for mainstream appeal. If you find yourself empathizing with the characters and become personally involved in the period and setting, it can be an emotional watch.
(2005) Constantine 8.5/10
I was pretty surprised at the semi-mixed reaction to this film before I learned it was a comic book adaptation. Listen, I’ve obviously never even heard about this comic but let me just say, as a standalone movie, it’s fucking awesome. It’s basically Keanu Reeves battling his way through hell, murking demons and basically just being badass as shit. I love the entire cast, Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf, etc. A true standout to me too was Tilda Swinton who plays the vague gendered Gabriel. The special effects, even 15 years later, are still fucking awesome. There’s a ton of CGI which isn’t always my favorite but it’s quality CGI that stands the test of time. I really loved this movie, I’d recommend it to anyone.
(2020) Relic 8/10
Robyn Nevin is fantastic here and all the supporting roles are great but not only does this woman make the movie, she is the movie. Her dialogue, her delivery and her body language, at least to me, are a huge chunk of the entire plot. I just found this movie to be gentle until it isn’t, which makes for the most tense moments. It’s a very claustrophobic film; I think it does justice to a very serious and frightening illness.
(1986) The Little Shop of Horrors 8/10
Okay to keep things real, I’ve never been a big musical dude but this movie is fun as hell. Rick Moranis is as goofy as ever and good god…the practical effects are mind-blowing. You’re watching this giant plant movie and it just melts your brain thinking about how it was accomplished. I had to look it up and after finding out it took sped-up footage, vocal matching with said footage and 60 men to operate this giant…puppet(?), I couldn’t be more impressed.
(2020) Palm Springs 8/10
It doesn’t take long to catch on that, while this is a romantic comedy, it’s also a sci-fi horror film and a specific subset of sci-fi that makes me anxious. So in some regards, at least to genre placement, there’s my bias. The movie is seriously a treat though. It’s a new spin on an old formula and it’s genuinely funny, suspenseful and endearing. Even if you disagree that it shouldn’t be discussed in the horror circles, you won’t regret watching it.
(1979) Nosferatu the Vampire 8/10
This film not only embodies and celebrates the original in terms of structure as well as substance, but in its restrained filmmaking methods; its ability to let shots live without intervention. It’s atmospheric, well-trimmed and just an all-around, exceptional film. Klaus Kinsi as Nosferatu is perfect; I loved the makeup design. His character is so out in the open that the shots have to be perfect in order to avoid the sillier pitfalls of films in the same vein attempting to achieve the same results. It still contains small doses of the eras beloved campiness, which I can appreciate to some degree, as it feels balanced within context. Dracula’s takeover of the town is anything but some violent, typical horror spectacle. Rather, Werner Herzog decides to portray it in a fever-dream-like fashion, elevated by the very minimal but well-used soundtrack.
(2009) The House of the Devil 8/10
Modern horror is no stranger to throwback aesthetics from earlier decades but in 2009, that wasn’t the case. Not only did this movie pioneer that but it did it so successfully. My absolute favorite aspect of this film is the retro feel. It captured 70’s horror so incredibly well. Ti West is a talented filmmaker and this is one of my favorites by him. It’s a slow burn but so sinister and despite many complaining that the payoff wasn’t worth the wait, I have to disagree. Also, the suspense during the build-up was my favorite part. The violence, especially early on, while limited, is so powerful and raw. It really set an uneasy tone for the rest of the runtime.
(1989) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 8/10
You know, this movie was the least memorable of the trilogy to me and I think that holds up, to a degree. I like this movie a lot though, fuck it, I love this movie. It’s the least horror focused but still has at least one intense body-horror moment. I don’t think too many people talk about how brave this movie is though; it tackles one of the most divisive topics, religion and does so in such a thrilling fashion. Indy is still Indy here, he’s fucking badass; his character and dialogue excel in this entry immensely. Not just dialogue but this film contains some of the best action choreography of the entire series, something that almost seems unfairly diminished through repetition. This movie is fucking awesome.
(1984) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom 8/10
This is probably the most influential horror movie of my entire childhood. The first time I watched it I had to shut it off at the heart scene and I think it took a few more tries to even make it through the whole thing. Unlike Scream, watching this decades later didn’t really totally eliminate that. I think it’s a scary movie and a really dark turn in the trilogy. There are quirky aspects of it character wise that are kind of goofy but playful. Overall though, goddamn dude, these set pieces are amazing. I love this movie and I’m totally biased but there are so many iconic moments during it. Harrison Ford is also jacked to shit and just at an all-time fuck-shit-up mode. His greedy and gritty character compliments the plot incredibly well.
(1984) The Terminator 8/10
This movie, simply put, is badass as shit. Everything you could ever need to know about it is established in the very first scene. I’m aware the series kind of progresses into more action focused territory with the sequels but the original will always be a horror movie to me. The pacing, the unstoppable force that is Arnold, it’s all thrilling as shit. Sure, there’s a few instances of 80’s special effects that have aged like milk, mostly with the final scene but for the most part, the effects look dope still. Cameron hasn’t missed in his entire career in my opinion and this film is a benchmark in multi-genre spanning, epic, cinematic movies. I love it.
(2009) The Loved Ones 7.5/10
This is the film that got me into Sean Byrne and it’s really something special. It reminds of almost a modern day interpretation of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, if the dinner scene was the entire film. It’s a non-thinker, fun horror movie in a purest sense. Byrne seems aware of that and the story and pacing all cater to it so well. Robin McLeavy plays one of the most unlikable villains to date and that alone is a ticket for investment in this film. It would seem almost playful to a horror veteran but the sadistic and incestuous nature of her writing is something to behold. This is a popcorn movie but a great one at that.
(1973) The Crazies 7/10
There’s some silly and overly-eccentric characters, per Romero’s usual style but I actually enjoyed this one a lot. I’m not even speaking directly about the remake but this film inspired a lot of modern horror films and concepts. There’s this great scene with this old lady knitting that I just adore. The innocent and violent clash in such an effective way. Obviously the horror aspects in that scene, as well as the virus itself are very fictional. The government response though, seems almost plausible, considering how they’re currently handling Covid-19. The miscommunication within government agencies in this film is both satisfying and frustratingly accurate.
(2019) I Trapped the Devil 7/10
This one is a bit of a slow-burn but I felt the tension from beginning to end so none of it felt like a blind investment. It had the potential to be another, cookie-cutter, pretentious statement but what I found it to be was simply a well-crafted horror film. While this film doesn’t shoot for the moon, it executes a well-trimmed, concise story and I’d fully recommend it to anyone interested in satanic horror.
(1935) The Black Room 7/10
This is another Universal horror film starring Karloff, directed by Roy Neill. It presents itself with the usual, tight-knit flair you may have come to expect but it somehow has seen much less recognition than any of the major monster movies. I really liked this movie. Despite the predictable nature, I found the short run-time to be refreshing and the performances were great. It was also a really cleanly produced. I suspect that’s due to the lack of need for special effects but nevertheless, it’s a high point. Definitely check this one out. It feels warms and slightly gothic; overall, it’s just a very well-executed movie.
(2004) The Day After Tomorrow 6/10
This may be due to the unrealistic science fiction needed to drive these plots, but I can’t decide if Emmerich takes his own work seriously. These films are undoubtedly brilliant visual spectacles at times and pretty goddamn entertaining but also a breeding ground for vapid characters. However, his films also seem to have actual political and social commentary. In the case of this film, it’s the world’s most on-the-nose message about climate change. I’m not even sure how much of a criticism that is but take it for what you will. The intense scenes in this movie are legitimately intense and even watching this 16 years after it was released, the CGI is pretty great. New York city is a fun sandbox for disaster porn and I had a great time watching it.
(2014) The Possession of Michael King 6/10
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The “Possession of” movies are a mixed bag and despite this one in particular being really low-budget, they did a great job at creating scary visuals. I loved the psychological torment, specifically this idea with flies that’s legitimately creepy as fuck. They take it to a level where I think right at the end it dips off into the ridiculous but not in a way that’s awful, just not to my personal tastes.
(2019) Sweetheart 6/10
Sweetheart is a fairly well-made survival horror film that starts out well but unfortunately fades into mediocrity. While the first half is actually more of a methodical portion of the film, it’s strangely the second act that feels like a chore to watch at times. There’s some talent to look out for here but it seems underdeveloped on this project. With that being said, it’s still really entertaining for the most part, just treat it more as a popcorn movie rather than something to really sink your teeth into.
(2013) Boar 6/10
Yeah I don’t even really know what to say. It’s a killer boar movie. It’s fun, the gore is pretty great and it’s well-paced. I don’t really feel inspired to write a novel about it but it’s worth a watch.
(2014) Digging up the Marrow 6/10
I’m not surprised to hear people complaining about this film because it’s by no means perfect. However, I am surprised to hear so many people targeting Adam Green’s ego as being the shining flaw in this movie. I have no bias towards the guy, I’m a casual fan but I do think that people mistook the meta-aspects of this story to be simply for self-service. With that being said, I like this movie. I don’t love it but the build-up was pretty intense, carried by an always somewhat unhinged Ray Wise. I’m glad they didn’t show a ton right away or really, at all, because it would have been even cheesier. This is a fun movie though that’s really not meant to be taken all that seriously. The creature design is cool and it’s just an easily digestible popcorn flick. I would have re-wrote the ending a bit to be less convoluted and abrupt (paradoxical almost, I know) but I can still recommend this one.
(2015) The Vatican Tapes 6/10
I didn’t have high hopes for this one, exorcism movies are just so oversaturated. With that being said, I was pleasantly surprised. The horror of it all, the culmination or whatever, is exactly what you’d expect and if that seems like a spoiler, it’s more of a statement on the sub-genre itself. It’s the build-up and basically entire first half that impressed me. I truly felt like the events that conspire could happen to anyone. This was by no means a waste of time, despite how many times this story has been done.
(2014) The Last Showing 5.5/10
Robert Englund lends his talents to a b-movie of sorts here but the end product isn’t that bad. Outside of him, the acting isn’t bad either. Chris Geere from You’re the Worst is actually in it and he’s such a hilariously miserable cunt. It entertained me enough but in the end, felt really bland. I’m feeling pretty eh on this one.
(2017) Lost Child 5/10
Lost Child wasn’t quite what I was expecting, which in some ways, was the only thing I enjoyed about it. They keep the mystery going for a long time and to their credit, I was never exactly sure how things were going to play out. Unfortunately, it’s just really boring and there’s no huge payoff. I liked a few of the characters and as far as production and acting goes, it was just fine. It’s kind of one of those mid-movies that doesn’t do a whole lot wrong but also doesn’t do a whole lot right.
(2019) In the Tall Grass 4.5/10
People seem to be pretty divisive about this film to the point where not a lot of middle ground criticism is being offered but that’s where it lands to me. It often engaged me, I like a lot of the sci-fi aspects, felt there were a few good performances and I didn’t hate the conclusion. With that being said, not a single aspect of this movie wow’d me in any fashion. It feels like it actually could have been shortened a bit, as in like an episode of an anthology. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it either.

2020.09.10 19:43 PapaBear12 PapaBear12: #41-45

Date Started: 1/3/20
Film #41 The King Date watched: 4/23 2.5 stars
While I usually enjoy historical films and period pieces, I wasn’t optimistic about The King, despite its fantastic cast listing. And I’ll say right now that cast didn’t disappoint. All performances were thoughtful and epic, especially the rivalry between Timothee Chalamet’s King Henry V and Robert Pattinson’s Dauphin Louis. My favorite part was the well done Battle of Agincourt, which was well-directed and exciting. I had one major issue with the film that keeps it from a higher rating. The King is well over 2 hours, and definitely suffers problems with pacing. There were serious lulls at points that kept me pretty bored for not insignificant stretches of time, which of course led to tedious viewing just waiting for the conflict to come to a head. On the whole, I would recommend the King for the cast and the awesome acting.
Film #42 The Platform Date watched: 4/25 2.5 stars
I love high concept movies when they’re executed well, and The Platform is no exception. The film explores the topics of humanity, class, compassion, and consumerism, among others, to effect without detracting from its uniqueness. It’s a movie with a message that never gets too preachy, nor does it deviate from its purpose to entertain. The acting, while not excellent, is certainly passable. There were certain moments I would have liked the film to expand upon when the opportunities presented themselves, such as the organization behind the platform’s study, specifically the kitchen that prepared the platform’s food and the actual study taking place. The ending also really left a lot to be desired, and sadly I felt the symbolism of the film’s final moments detracted from what could have been a great ending if they had elected to actually show the aftermath of the protagonist’s venture in traversing the platform.
Film #43 Killer’s Kiss Date watched: 5/2 2 stars
The first film on my crusade to see all of the Kubrick works I hadn’t already began with Killer’s Kiss which, while being far from a “great” film, didn’t disappoint. There were flashes of greatness here for sure, especially in the use of lighting and scenery. However, with subpar acting and poorly choreographed action, Killer’s Kiss doesn’t quite hold up to modern quality standards of filmmaking like some of Kubrick’s other older works like The Killing or Paths of Glory. I’d recommend this to other Kubrick junkies only.
Film #44 Paths of Glory Date watched: 5/3 3.5 stars
Going into Paths of Glory, I did not expect it to end up being one of my favorite Kubrick films, but here I am, pleasantly surprised. For a film of its time, all of the main characters, specifically the 3 soldiers marked for execution, are incredibly well written, every bit as unique and complex as the protagonist. Kirk Douglas really shines as that protagonist, the commanding officer of those 3 men acting as their defense during court martial, and his performance is sincere. The war scene is shot well and feels pretty real for its time, as do the politics. My one complaint is that the villain in George Macready’s General Mireau can feel a bit cartoonish at times. I give Paths of Glory a very high recommendation.
Film #45 Spartacus Date watched: 5/4 3 stars
Spartacus is an all-time classic for a reason, an epic worthy of its name, and a film everyone thinks they know (because of the famous “I am Spartacus” scene) until they see it. The acting is pretty great from all and certainly outshines that of my previously reviewed Roman epic “Quo Vadis” (review #38). Of course, this film has plenty of historical inaccuracies to nitpick over, but ultimately they are forgivable in pursuit of a powerful film. Spartacus gets the thumb-up from me.

2020.09.09 10:40 JAMESFAULKNERSS Top 10 Superhero Films of All Time

Everyone has their own lists, and everyone will have their own opinion. This list includes films that not only have a good story, staggering box office numbers, and mystifying visual effects but also a strong international appeal, even a global cult following, and most importantly, a strong villain. Here are our top ten superhero films of all time.
📷 Captain Marvel
2019 was a big year for Marvel. Not only were they able to garner over $3 billion at the box office, but they also introduced their first female superhero-Captain Marvel.
The Brie Larson starrer was a film that preceded the Avengers: Endgame and sort of had a similar job that Black Panther had for Avengers Infinity War.
No question about Larson’s acting prowess but there are very few who consider the film better than Wonder Woman. Even Marvel fans weren’t too excited about Larson, someone like Emily Blunt would have certainly made them appreciate the film more. Furthermore, Larson’s endeavor to connect the film with her activist movement didn’t help the film’s PR strategy. As a result of this, there isn’t much excitement about the sequel of Captain Marvel.
Man of Steel
Zack Snyder’s 2013 film was pitched as a film that will reinstate Superman as the most powerful superhero in pop culture and announce the arrival of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe), aka Justice League franchise, at the box office. The film was reasonably successful because of the visual spectacle, Henry Cavill’s persona, and Hans Zimmer’s deeply engaging soundtrack.
However, lackluster villains, no proper planning, and abysmal editing in film’s sequels led to the eventual downfall of DCEU.
DC is in the rebuilding phase after the shocker of the Justice League and is looking forward to bringing the franchise back on track.
Thor: The Dark World
The second film in the Thor franchise was the final film that Natalie Portman did with MCU before she parted ways citing creative differences. However, she will return as Jane Foster almost after a decade with the fourth installment of the Thor franchise (Thor: Love and Thunder)
The film gives more insights on Asgard than the first film, and although it could be criticized for utilizing scientific annotation in a wrong way the cinematography, action, and the acting of the ensemble cast makes the film worth a watch.
Wonder Woman
2017 blockbuster directed Patty Jenkins remains to this day arguably the best film of the DCEU franchise, and before that, there wasn’t anything really substantial in terms of fan appeasement. However, DCEU has been in the rebuilding phase, and with recent films like Shazam and Aquaman, there is so much to look forward to.
The Gal Gadot starrer also has a sequel in line, which is gearing up for the October the 2nd release date.
Avengers: Infinity War
It broke the record of Avatar in a matter of days and remained the highest-grossing film of all time until, of course, its sequel was released. Avengers: Infinity War is famous for his powerhouse of stars, visual effects, and Josh Brolin’s dominance as Thanos.
The climax of the film is very dark and arguable will remain the darkest moment in Marvel film history for a long time. I mean, how dark can Marvel get? It’s not DC. This should be the threshold.
Infinity War is an insane film, and I mean the literal word-insane. Ten years before, if somebody had mentioned an idea like this, he or she would have been called nuts. The film should have been impossible to make, but it happened, and for it to happen, several blockbusters had to be made in order to set up the events in Infinity War.
The sheer audacity and the strategy involved to create a franchise like this is nothing short of a work of genius.
Doctor Strange
It was the second film in phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and starred Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role.
Doctor Strange possessed both magic and intelligence, and this origin film firmly established Cumberbatch’s prominence in Marvel’s plans for the future. He is arguably the frontrunner, along with Brie Larson, to take the place of Robert Downey Jr as the face of the franchise.
Batman (1989)
Tim Burton’s film was the first installment in the Batman franchise, which slowly but surely lost its way with its sequels.
The film had Michael Keaton starring as Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker. The film explored Batman’s early days (which Matt Reeves is also planning to do) and his rivalry with the supervillain Joker.
The film was critically approved and attained commercial affluence. Despite the likes of Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and Robert Pattinson donning the caped crusader suit years after, Michael Keaton has remained one of the most beloved Batman actors.
But as a fun fact, there were voices at that time that said nobody could surpass Jack Nicholson’s Joker. Not to doubt Nicholson’s virtuosity, but the voice turned out to be wrong…the point, which we will address with the first ranked film in our list.
The Dark Knight Rises
Although it is regarded as one of Christopher Nolan’s weakly written scripts, the soundtrack, cinematography, sequence, and the acting done in the film are top-notch.
Nolan reluctantly agreed to do this film and finally bid adieu to the Batman franchise as a director. The film perfectly ended the story of Bruce Wayne and gave the possibility of continuation through Robin’s character, but the franchise hasn’t been touched upon ever since.
It ranks on 12th position in the highest-grossing films of all time and is Christopher Nolan’s highest-grossing film ever. Nolan co-wrote the script of the film along with his brother Jonathan and David S. Goyer. Just like its prequel, the focus was mainly on the visuals and the story and less on the action.
V for Vendetta
It’s not so much of a superhero film, but it is one of the rare films ever made. V for Vendetta was a DC film based on the 1988 storyline of a limited series of the same name from DC Vertigo comics.
The film starred Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman in lead roles. The film is filled with symbolic significance, acting brilliance, and powerful dialogues. Portman won a Saturn Award for this film and it is one of her best performances.
The Dark Knight
The 2008 film directed by Christopher Nolan is arguably one of the best films ever made. The film is always held in juxtaposition with the vintage film Godfather but the most surprising thing is that it wasn’t even nominated in the best film category at 2009 Oscars.
The film holds the pedigree of not being just the best superhero film ever made but also the best crime thriller ever made.
The ensemble cast of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Aaron Eckhart delivered a performance that is unfathomably difficult to recreate if not impossible to surpass.
Conclusion
So, here were our top 10 picks for the best superhero films of all time. There can be few honorable mentions that you would argue should have been there in the list itself such as Avengers: Endgame, Logan, Wolverine, Deadpool, Superman Returns, etc.

2020.09.08 15:20 FirstBreath1 Mammoth Feed Blue Lagoon

I needed to write this down. Somewhere. Anywhere. Everywhere. Just in case. And now I’m glad that I did. There’s no Internet here. No signal out in between the trees. I don’t think anybody will make it in time, even if this post is sent at the miraculous last moment, and so I’ll just store it in drafts. Yes. That’s right! I’ll save it in drafts everywhere and just keep spamming send. A miraculous decision, Matty, maybe the best and last of your life. Now keep typing. Yes. That’s right. Keep typing. Type nonsense if you have to. Type, type, typedy. La la la. Don’t want them to see. Can’t let them know that I know they see.
September 5, 2020 at 11:59 P.M.
Mammoth Feed Blue Lagoon
September 5, 2020 at 11:30 P.M.
They’re coming inside.
September 5, 2020 at 11:01 P.M.
Mile marker nineteen. Left turn. Right turn. Left turn. Past Hortacres. Past White Valley. Past the bridge. Don’t take the bridge. Do not take the bridge.
September 1, 2020 at 9:53 P.M.
I never gave two fucks about hiking. The entire trip, sixty miles into the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nothing but trees, lakes, and cow shit, with suitcases dominating the back and front seats, and an anxious girlfriend in the driver's seat, and shitty techno music vibrating the tiny little Civic, I couldn’t escape the nagging question at the back of my mind.
Why was I here? Why did I care? I didn’t even like fish. Never caught one in my life.
But then the beautiful blonde that came to be my best friend and girlfriend smiled through a pair of cheap white glasses in the driver seat, and the reason became clear, just like that; I was in love. A helpless, hapless, and hopelessly devoted dumbass twenty-four year old in love.
“My dad’s going to like you,” Melanie shouted over the blasting radio for the fifth time. “You have so much in common.”
I asked her again about our destination and she just smirked. Mel liked to play secrets close to the chest.
September 1, 2020 at 10:20 P.M.
We arrived pretty late. Will try to post an approximation of our location in another note. Notes should tag it as well. Apple should be good for that much if this frigging phone ever catches a signal. Still trying to figure out the best way to order these updates. I might end up mucking it up in the end. Too many different formatting options on all these different social media.
A little backstory.
I dated Melanie for about nine months. The week-long camping experience was supposed to be a way for me to get to know her folks. I didn’t really know much about the details. They booked the trip and promised everything would be handled. I believed them.
The campground was beautiful, picturesque even, like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. There were a row of cabins positioned in front of the lake. Canoes and kayaks sat at the ready. Fishing poles were propped up against the houses. We settled into the largest house - a huge two bedroom with a wide stretching view of the water. We were ecstatic.
We spent the first night drinking and playing board games around the campfire. It went well. Turns out Mel’s Mom likes comics, and her Dad likes the Mets, which is two for two for me. My talking points rotated between Robert Pattinson and the state of the Metsies pitching rotation. I think I succeeded in both categories. Went to bed around twelve with a plan to go sightseeing in the morning.
September 2, 2020, at 2:20 A.M.
Noises outside the cabin. Thought bear (terrified of bears) but then heard people talking. Sounds like a lot of people talking. Melanie won’t wake up. Her parents are fast asleep. I really have to take a piss.
September 2, 2020 at 2:28 A.M.
Went outside to piss (no indoor plumbing, of fucking course) and there are indeed people outside. Looks like the cabin next door is rented by a couple college kids. We didn’t see them earlier. They asked if we had any fishing line. I hooked them up with a couple beers instead.
September 2, 2020 at 1:58 P.M.
Mel woke up early this morning and wanted to go into the nearby town (think it’s called White Valley) before the rain. We drove twenty minutes only to find that the bridge was up. Really weird. I guess they don’t want people traveling across in bad weather? No other way to get out of town. So I guess we’re stuck here for the time being.
September 2, 2020 at 9:59 P.M.
Spent the night drinking and attempting to fish with Mel, parents, and the college kids. They were fun. A couple of the kids managed to catch some trout. My father-in-law pulled in a bass. Melanie definitely looked disappointed that I didn’t walk away with anything, but we ate well that night, and nobody else seemed to mind the five or so lures I lost in the lake.
Another weird thing. I mentioned seeing the college kids last night. They acted like I didn’t know what I was talking about.
September 3, 2020 at 3:45 A.M.
More voices outside. Melanie is still snoring like a freight train. I don’t recognize them this time. Definitely not the college kids. And guess what? Have to piss again.
September 3, 2020 at 3:50 A.M.
Officially freaked out. Ran into two dudes outside wearing white masks. They didn’t look at me. They didn’t acknowledge my presence at all and they couldn’t have been more than five feet away. It was the strangest thing. They didn’t have flashlights. They weren’t carrying anything. Just two guys in black tracksuits, with white masks, walking through the woods like they had some place to be. One of them actually bumped into my shoulder and they just kept walking.
I went into the cabin and locked the doors. Not going to sleep much tonight.
September 3, 2020 at 9:01 A.M.
DIdn’t sleep at all last night. Woke up Mel at 6 sharp. Got her into the car under the guise of morning bagels and explained everything along the ride. She is officially freaked out now too. But guess what? It’s still raining. So the bridge is still up.
September 3, 2020 at 12:50 P.M.
Argued with Mel over whether to tell her parents about the guys in masks. She thinks it’s just the college guys. I know it wasn’t. But seeing as the cell service is shit, and we can’t even leave this miserable place for the day anyway, I might as well play along. Today we’re going swimming.
September 3, 2020 at 3:30 P.M.
Not going back in that lake. Something touched me. I know what I fucking felt. I was standing there, minding my own business, when something big and slimy wrapped around my ankle. Mel says I’m being dramatic. Her dad laughed at me when I screamed. Her mom says it could have been weeds. Regardless, my stock is trending downwards.
September 3, 2020 at 6:00 P.M.
Playing monopoly tonight. I own Boardwalk and Park Place. This should be a quick game.
September 3, 2020 at 8:00 P.M.
No one has seen the college kids all day. The light in their cabin is on.
September 3, 2020 at 11 P.M.
Still playing monopoly.
September 4, 2020 at 12:30 A.M.
Mel pulled the surprising upset. She capitalized her position early and made a killing off her mansions. Well played, indeed, going to bed now in Campground Hellhole. Pissing before bed this time. Fool me thrice...
September 4, 2020 at 3:30 A.M.
We have a bear on the property. I woke up the family just to let them know not to go outside. I heard the sniffing while laying awake waiting for voices. I caught him munching at the remains of our smore fire. Pretty cool. Doesn’t seem interested in us. I stayed awake for an hour or so just watching him from the safety of the second floor. Everybody else went to bed.
September 4, 2020 at 7:00 A.M.
The bear is dead.
I don’t know what the fuck they put in smores that can kill a bear but this guy is deader than disco. He has to be more than 500 pounds and the death stench is going to stink the hell out of the rest of our vacation. Who knows what kind of carnivores his meat could attract. I convinced Mel’s Dad to ride up with me to the bridge, but guess what, it’s still up; and it’s not even fucking raining today.
I think her parents are worried now.
September 4, 2020 at 1:00 P.M.
Hanging in the cabin. The sky turned black about an hour ago and it started pouring again. The light in the college kids’ cabin is still on. Nobody has seen them.
September 4, 2020 at 4:00 P.M.
Still raining. Folks are getting bored. Mel’s Dad is taking a nap. I guess he didn’t get much sleep last night.
September 4, 2020 at 6:30 P.M.
Mel’s Dad is up. He wants to investigate the cabins. Sky is still black. Unusual for this time of year. But he has a big ass flashlight, and two tennis rackets, so it looks like we’re ready to do some damage.
September 4, 2020 at 9:00 P.M.
Something is wrong. The college kids’ cabin is completely abandoned. But all of their shit is still here. We broke in through a cracked back door. There were half finished beers on the kitchen tables… food in the microwave.... clothes all over the place… but no kids. And no sign of a struggle. It’s like they just disappeared.
But where would they go?
Mel’s Dad says there are no other campgrounds on the Cape, and there’s no other way to get out but the bridge, so now what?
Call the police? How?
Mel’s Mom says the river empties out into the ocean at some point. Maybe if we get down it, we can find a signal. Gotta wait till morning.
I made sure to piss while Mel’s Dad guarded with his trusty tennis racket.
September 4, 2020 at 9:15 P.M.
I have been informed that the body of water next to us is in fact a lagoon and not a river.
September 5, 2020 at 1:30 A.M.
We all woke up this time. It would be impossible not to. Twenty fucking freaks in masks marched right by our cabin. They brought torches with them and they’re chanting something.
We watched from the window. They had to know we were there. Our campsite was not exactly a secret. It was like they didn’t care. The group paused at the water’s edge. They were blocking something from our viewpoint. After a moment of chanting, one of them stepped forward, and pushed the objects of their attention into the lagoon.
The waves broke. The freak shows chanted louder at this point.
And then something big leapt out of the water.
I didn’t see it clearly. But Mel did. And she won’t talk about it since.
September 5, 2020 at 8:00 A.M.
We went to the bridge at daybreak. Still up. Nobody in the control tower and not a fucking soul in sight. The sky is still black. So black that it almost looks like nighttime out here. The rain comes and goes. The thunder and lightning have not left since sometime yesterday morning.
Our ragged little group can only guess as to what will happen if we’re still here tonight. Melanie’s parents seem dead set on finding a way out. I don’t know what that will be. There’s nowhere to go. We’re trapped. Swimming across the channel in rushing water would be a death sentence.
At least we’ve got tennis rackets.
September 5, 2020 at 10 A.M.
The bear is gone. No one knows who took it.
September 5, 2020 at 2:00 P.M.
Some of us slept. Melanie’s dad is gone. The girls are freaking.
September 5, 2020 at 4:00 P.M.
Melanie’s Dad came back. The campground is surrounded by water on all sides. No way out. Good to know.
September 5, 2020 at 6:00 P.M.
The sun came out for a bit. Now it’s dark again. Can’t keep track of the weather here. Seems like a storm should have moved past us by now.
September 5, 2020 at 7:00 P.M.
We are barricaded in the house and ready to face the night (tennis rackets at the ready).
September 5, 2020 at 9:30 P.M.
I can hear them chanting. They’re close.
September 5, 2020 at 9:45 P.M.
The freakshows are back. Twenty people in robes standing at the edge of the lagoon once again. What the fuck is going on?
September 5, 2020 at 10:00 P.M.
They have somebody with them. Several somebodys. Not dressed in robes. Bags over their heads. Not conscious. Holy fuck, could this be…
September 5, 2020 at 10:05 P.M.
Found the college kids.
September 5, 2020 at 10:07 P.M.
They’re dead. Oh my God. They have to be dead. These poor kids are not moving an inch. One of the masked dudes is holding his hair like a fucking rag doll.
September 5, 2020 at 10:10 P.M.
More chanting. College kid number one is in the water.
September 5, 2020 at 10:12 P.M.
Something else is in the water.
September 5, 2020 at 10:15 P.M.
Oh my fuck, help me, his head is gone.
September 5, 2020 at 10:17 P.M.
Blood everywhere. More chanting. There is a headless fucking corpse is just floating in the water with his pants still on.
September 5, 2020 at 10:20 P.M.
College kid 2 and 3 in the water.
September 5, 2020 at 10:21 P.M.
Lots of ripping. A flash of teeth. Big splashes. More chanting.
September 5, 2020 at 10:25 P.M.
Two more headless corpses floating deeper into the lagoon.
September 5, 2020 at 10:27 P.M.
We are huddled in a room on the second floor. There are no windows up here. We have to try and hide. It’s our only option.
September 5, 2020 at 10:30 P.M.
It’s quiet outside. Maybe they left.
September 5, 2020 at 10:45 P.M.
I checked the window. They’re waiting. Twenty murderers in masks have surrounded our cabin. I should pray. I never prayed before.
September 5, 2020 at 11:35 P.M.
Goodbye.

2020.09.07 08:10 YodasChick-O-Stick Filming movies is not an essential service and needs to be shut down like everything else.

It takes dozens upon dozens of crew just to film a single shot for a movie or TV show. Crew members working closely together, directors and cameramen side by side, extras huddled together, makeup artists literally touching people's faces. It's a recipe for disaster. Robert Pattinson just got it during filming of The Batman.
Film companies that are still filming their movies or TV shows are greedy and putting hundreds of people's lives in danger for their own gain. Just stop production for a few months, the release date is already pushed back. But instead they insist to film on schedule.
Jurassic World: Dominion is bragging about their extreme precautions, having sanitizer stations every 5 feet or some bullshit. Here's a better idea: brag about how you're not putting several people in close proximity by putting production on hold.
