Streaming

Bad news:

Peacock had an impressive collection of Marlene Dietrich, Douglas Sirk, Hitchcock, Marx brothers, Abbott and Costello, etc. flicks, which all left the service on January 1st. Peacock sucks.

Good news:

Both the theatrical and director's cut of Mann's Last of the Mohicans are now streaming on Hulu. Lonergan's Margaret is also available in its original theatrical cut and extended edition on HBOMax - this is the first time the extended cut has been available in HD, which hopefully bodes well for a future Blu-ray release.

I get most of that on Eminence. It has really good VOD. It also pulls up series. I'm watching Designated Survivor. ABC carried it for 2 seasons, Netflix picked it up. It's a Netflix series but I can get it with Eminence. It's taking up most of my day. It only has 10 episodes in season 3. It was canceled because of contract problems.

You keep mentioning Eminence, but I'm having trouble tracking it down? Do you have a website link? Or does it go by other names like NitroTV?

Random casts that may be of interest to weirdos:

A trip down a rabbit hole researching Cindy Sherman led me to mid-90s sci-fi mediocrity Johnny Mnemonic. Besides Keanu in the titu-u-lar role ("I wanna order room service!") the cast includes a random hodgepodge of Dolph Lundgren, Ice-T, Henry Rollins, Udo Kier (of course), Beat Takeshi (!), and Fassbinder muse Barbara Sukowa slumming it in her husband, sculptor Robert Longo's, one and only Hollywood film.

When watching Portrait of a Lady on Fire last year pre-pandemic I recognized film matriarch Valeria Golino's face, but couldn't quite recall where I had seen her before. Lo and behold, I find out I had a major early pubescent crush on her as Ramada Hayman, Charlie Sheen's love interest in the Hot Shots movies. Regardless of the effects of time I'd still like to fry some eggs and bacon on her tummy. https://youtube.com/watch?v=di4eYlJl0Vk

A deeper cut in Hot Shots! is a brief cameo from a fresh-faced Heidi Swedberg as the wife of LT Pete "Dead Meat" Thompson who really should've revealed the truth about JFK's assassination before flying that fighter jet. Most will remember Swedberg for her most iconic wife role, Susan Ross, who licked those poisoned wedding envelopes straight to heaven.

WOW!!!
Funny you mentioned Black Snake Moan. I watched it about a week or so ago. Samuel L Jackson is as versatile as actors can get. He actually played the guitar and sang in the movie. Justin Timberlake did a good job playing Ronnie.

Speed Racer. In terms of a live action adaptation of a cartoon, it's pretty dead on and visually stunning.

Got lazy trying to go back and find the Tenet discussion, but I kind of dug it. It's hollow, bombastic, confusing, noisy, cool fun, which is what Nolan's action movies typically are. Beats watching Thor 17 or whatever.

I'd make a trip to the theater post-covid if Warner Brothers wanted to re-release it.

Stacy Title, director of one of my '90s indie favorites, The Last Supper, has passed away at age 56 after a three-year battle with ALS.

Link: Deadline

It's downright unfair.

I love the Speed Racer cartoon and the movie certainly does it justice.

Trump should be impeached again for his terrible coronavirus response that has delayed release of the latest Wes Anderson movie.

If the US had South Korea's leadership, I would've seen The French Dispatch in theaters by now.

TENET is noisy, emotionless, and doesn't contain a single human being and yet I kinda had fun watching it. It's a big miss, but not without its pleasures. I can't believe people risked their lives to see it in a theater.

As an aside, Nolan films are notorious for their challenging sound mixes and he's absolutely trolling us here. Every conversation seems to take place next to a train, or a speed boat, or behind a mask, or insert large nosy machinery.

Is it called WONDER WOMAN 1984 because that’s where the effects came from?

Another bummer, so boring


Finally got to seeing WW and it was disappointing, even my wife who loved the first one fell asleep.

It was 30 mins too long and all over the place with too many things going on and trying to be too many things a Patty film, a Snyder film with over explanations of every little thing, a Donner film with cheesiness. Doesn't even make sense why they chose the 80's.

I think of it as his Body Double - unfiltered Nolan doubling down on his excesses as he gives a middle finger to everyone. A total troll job with a $200M budget.

**spoilers below**

Pointlessly convoluted puzzle box plot, punishing sound mix, and cool gadget and suit porn filled with empty stock characters? Turn that all up to 11, baby.

Think stuff going backwards is a silly one-note gimmick? (bleep) you, 150 minutes of slow mo backwards (bleep).

You don't like the dead wives, huh? Well here's a movie about saving Elizabeth Debicki from the worst wife guy ever and Nolan's still gonna jerk you around to make you think she's dead half-way through.

Want pre-blockbuster fame Nolan nihilism? Boy, here's a mean-spirited James Bond movie in which everything is horrible except the mother who bounces her dying husband off a yacht railing to drown and a "protagonist" going back and forth through time to protect a human future full of mass death due to catastrophic climate change.

**end spoilers**

And I think I like it because of all that.

Please stop remaking or prequeling horror classics, Hollywood. Go after past failures or low budget oddities like Scarecrows instead of rebooting the Evil Dead or Poltergeist.

Yes. The twist of Chucky being an app took Child's Play to a whole new level.
