The Imitation Game

By Sati. Wednesday, January 28, 2015 , , , , , , , 3 Comments
The subject of greatness comes up during every Oscar season.  It's usually the story of someone who lived in turbulent time and had either a major love affair or contributed to the world in significant way. Those films are usually beautifully shot, scored with great music and feature well known actors who deliver good, often career best work. And they always get criticized for being filled with cliches and that huge Oscar bait sign they should have attached to them.

  • Mark Ruffalo used Mark Ruffalo reaction gif on tumblr to write about Paul Rudd. Oh God, my ovaries.
  • I was on a sick leave for 3 days this week because due to stress my body started to get fucked up again. It did not help and now I had to do in 2 days what I planned to do in 5. Also my new diet includes avocado which tastes like death. On the bright side I did not interact with my boss at all this week so at least that was good.
  • I actually started exercising. Of course I'm still smoking and drinking because to quote Seth Rogen in This is the End - I'm not psychotic - but yeah, avocados and actual physical effort is brand new for me. 
  • I'm in so much pain right now.
  • Here's the picture of the cast for Now You See Me 2. Look at Mark Look how delicious.

    The Best (and Worst) of 2014

    By Sati. Monday, January 19, 2015 60 Comments
    Best movie: Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
    (2. Gone Girl 3. Whiplash 4. Pride 5. Under the Skin 6. Nightcrawler 7. Enemy 8. The Guest 9. Foxcatcher 10. The Skeleton Twins)

    I adore that moment when I truly fall in love with a movie that I'm watching. With Birdman it was within first five minutes when Riggan 'makes' the reflector hit the shitty actor in his play. The atmosphere of the film, its astounding visual side, energetic beat of the score, the effortless humor, the wonderful acting - it's all right there. It's not just a movie, it's a wild, surreal, beautiful, breathtaking experience and a great study of the mind of an artist and the challenges he faces in the world. Hell, not just an artist - all of us. Wanting to be someone, to have our dreams come true, to be relevant. What do we want? How can we be happy? How can we be free? Birdman asks all of those questions without ever coming across as preachy. It's just an incredible ride, from start to finish, and the finest movie I've seen in years.

    20th Critics Choice Awards

    By Sati. Sunday, January 18, 2015 , 26 Comments
  • All right, this year's Critics Choice Awards were not as eventful as last year's. I blame the lack of McConaughey and no awesome fuck ups like malfunction when Bullock won last year which resulted in her 'what the fuck?!' Also can I just say I think it really sucks that some of the actors don't show up because they know they won't win. Getting nominated is still a big deal.

No matter who wins the Oscar this year - it's going to be well deserved. I'm going to choose the best scores in my huge best of list on Tuesday but for now let's listen to the year's best, most memorable and incredible tracks:

    15 best shots of 2014

    Welcome to the second Best of 2014 list! There were plenty of movies last year with absolutely stunning cinematography. But this list is a little bit more specific than this. It's about that one perfect image that showed up on screen that I won't be able to ever forget. Whenever thinking of these movies, it's impossible for me not to remember the best shots in them and they just appear in my mind instantly.

    Here we go - the first of my end of 2014 lists.

The best shots of 2014 list is next in line, but for now I hope you enjoy my choices here:

  •  So you guys know how I saw Begin Again on Halloween (it was magical) and then for 2 months I was meaning to rewatch it but all I rewatched were the scenes with Mark being shirtless (all three of them, God what a lovely use of him in this movie)? I'm finally gonna rewatch it tonight. The key is to get drunk enough so that the ending doesn't hurt.
