@ricardoharvin Ooooooo.

I took a still from that movie to a hairdresser, nearly 15 years ago, when I was dyeing my hair with a bright color for the first time.

It also has fantastic music.

LIMBO*, the new, grimy Australian Outback detective noir shot in exquisite, crisp, black-and-white in a super-wide aspect ratio, starts at a slow simmer and very carefully sticks to that pace for the duration, never lets up. Loved this film. Everything about it: bravo, well-done.

*There are many films named LIMBO but this is the new Australian one. See it. You may hate it. You may be bored. It’s not American. But it’s excellent imho.

Studio Ghibli To Be Awarded Honorary Palme D’Or At Cannes 2024 (www.empireonline.com)

Even as the beloved Japanese animation house theoretically winds down, Studio Ghibli is flying high. Hot off the heels of that Oscar win for The Boy And The Heron, the accolades just keep coming – the studio is being recognised at the Cannes Film Festival next month, set to receive an honorary Palme d’or at the 77th...

Mimic (1997)

This is another one I sort of conflated with Species, I think.

I still think Splice is better, but GDT put a better story together for this one. Far less horny than Species.

#NowWatching Red Lights (2012)

I'm passing up a 5th or 6th viewing of Event Horizon in recent history to revisit this gem, another old favorite.

Great performances from a great cast, including Elizabeth Olsen and Toby Jones.

This article confirms my worst fear of the depicting an unearned adoration of the in general, given its utter failure since at least the 1980's to consistently name people and things as they are and to "speak truth to power", at least here in the .

Apparently director follows the disproven ethos of "objectivity", which avoids responsibility for stating truths, ignoring that such "silence" always sides with oppression

I started watching a video on the channel titled "What Civil War is Really About" which starts by defending Garland with the argument that everyone in the agrees on one thing, regardless of our , that we don't want a tyrannical .

That perspective suits (mostly) white people (white men, especially) and is a deliberate lie that ignores the truth that much, if not most, of 's appeal has always been his promise and attempts to act tyrannically.

@metin I'll give it a try. Prices are reasonable and shipping is surprisingly cheap. I'll let you know how it goes 🙂

I forgot to mention: I can see why shops like Society6 are being careful about copyright. It's an heated topic. Although I agree that this is obviously satire and I don't even think it would violate any copyrights (except maybe the font). But I'm not that familiar with copyright laws 🙈

@daniel 👍 I guess American businesses are extra careful, because of the lawsuit culture there.

Most entertaining way to deal with the IT FOLLOWS (2014) entity that stalks you and murders you unless you sexually transmit the curse to someone else: fuck the President.

Harder with some Presidents than others, but if you can pull it off, the Secret Service is gonna have the time of their lives. Eventually maybe they call in the Marines. Finally they send the President up in Air Force One and we find out if the entity can fly a fighter jet. This is the sequel we need!

@yaypie never seen it, but isn't it more likely that the entity is itself a (former) president?

By which I mean JFK, of course.

Two men who sued Universal because they rented "Yesterday" on the basis of a trailer that showed Ana de Armas, only to find she had been cut from the film, have settled their false advertising lawsuit. Peter Rosza and Conor Woulfe alleged they had been cheated out of $3.99 each. A federal judge initially sided with them but they were left on the hook for $126,705 in legal fees. Now, they have accepted a settlement that will resolve the case. Here's more from Variety.

CultureDesk,
@CultureDesk@flipboard.social avatar

@penalbatoday The whole thing seems like a ridiculous waste of time. “The attorneys who filed and sunk two years into this frivolous case are trying to pressure Universal into making a huge monetary payment (with no legal or factual basis) to end a case that is now worth $7.98,” wrote Stephanie Herrera, one of the studio’s lawyers.Though a precedent has been set in that trailers are subject to false advertising laws. Could we sue for our ticket price because we thought "Madame Webb" looked decent in the trailer? 🤔

, April 17, 1397, poet Geoffrey Chaucer read the Canterbury Tales for the first time at the court of Richard II, in English rather than Norman French. In the story, on April 17, 1387, the pilgrims set out on their journey (depicted in A Knight’s Tale, 2001)

@gullevek I’m on board with them too.

I find that many academic authors and editors seem to go out of their way to avoid using “them” as if they’ve been taught it was too colloquial or something.

I all wonder if it is similar to the hypercorrection “between you and me” —> “between you and I”

Dune 2 de Denis Villeneuve

Je ne verrai pas Dune 2 au cinéma avec ma pneumonie, mais au moins en version 🏴‍☠️ c'est gratuit.

Dans Dune 1, le gentil seigneur envoyé sur la planète Arrakis pour y exploité les ressources était tué par des méchants sur ordre de l’empereur intergalactique qui aimait pourtant le gentil seigneur comme un fils.

Le fils du gentil seigneur survit avec sa maman et rencontre des autochtones un peu débiles, mais fiers et grands guerriers

1/X

Dune 2 ne serait pas joli avec un max de tune, ce serait juste une sorte de grosse série B naze dont on se moquerait.

4/X

@tshirtman@mas.to avatar

@Camille_Poulsard pas vu dune 2, lu bouquins il y a très longtemps. Le baron arkonen c'est un gros méchant caricatural quand même, genre de mémoire il est vénère contre Paul, qui est un enfant, et du coup pour se détendre il veut torturer un nain, il demande qu'on lui en trouve un, quelqu'un a la mauvaise idée de dire que quand même, c'est pas ouf, et du coup il lui fait raccourcir les jambes, ça fera l'affaire.

@LincolnRamirez I loved this film. I was surprised how affecting it was. I did not expect the historical twist at the end (being purposefully vague to not give spoilers away).
