    Sass VS Fash: Girlballs of Steel - a thread

    Not gonna disparage anyone from realizing a creative project, if you have an idea and the means to realize it, go for it by all means. But here's some feedback from my side: For something that gives of the impression of going for something kind of punk and irreverent, I feel like just going for...

    Let's be honest, the MCU never handled female characters well.

    Dr. Strange: Multiverse of Madness Every once in a while some popular plot device comes along that Hollywood screenwriters treat as the hot new thing to shoehorn into their productions. Currently, the ball has landed on the "multiverse", certainly one of the more abstract concepts to build...

    Oldboy (2003) South Korean revenge thriller by Park Chan-Wook and one of the earlier korean productions to get widespread critical acclaim abroad. Which, I suppose, shouldn't surprise, it is a very attention grabbing flick. Oldboy is the story of businessman Oh Dae-Su who finds himself...

    That sounds surprisingly fun. On one hand, I didn't expect them to let Raimi make a Raimi movie. On the other hand, his Spiderman movies are in many ways what the average MCU flick is trying to be.

    Undone (2019) Amazon Prime series from the mind of Raphael Waksberg and Kate Purdy, respectively showrunner and writer on Bojack Horseman, done in rotoscoped animation and starring Rosa Salazar of Alita: Battle Angel Fame. Part drama, part comedy, part supernatural mystery, all new age mumbo...

    Ukraine

    That's how it's gonna end one way or the other, but it's clear Russia will only ever agree to a settlement if their war effort comes to a stalemate. Unless Russia acknowledges the legitimacy of the democratically elected Ukrainian government and Ukraine's autonomy, there's not gonna be peace...

    Ukraine

    No, I'd never claim it was, but i do think currently most of Europe is a better place to live than all those countries.

    Ukraine

    Frankly, I think America, Russia and China all represent a very similar toxic cocktail of fanatical nationalism, shameless imperialism, pedantic social conservativism and cutthroat capitalism. What I want for my little corner of Europe or, really, Europe in general, is minimal interference from...

    He was producer and, I think, at least informally the showrunner for the first three seasons. He doesn't actually have directing credits on any of the shows episodes, but from what I've seen of it, his handwriting is all over it.

    Miami Vice (2006) Michael Mann's adaptation of the buddy cop series by the same name he used to produce all the way back in the 80's, starring Coling Farell and Jamie Foxx. You know, I really like Michael Mann. He is one of those directors who has not only a very specific style but keeps...

    Brie Larson joining cast of Fast & Furious 10

    It's kind of funny how after winning an Oscar for serious drama, she pivoted to shlocky franchise action movies.

    Ukraine

    I don't think anyone wants Ukraine to march into Russia, least of all the Ukrainians themselves. I think when it comes to the actual conditions of an end to the war, the rest of the world maintaining pressure on Russia is as important as the Ukraine military pushing back against the invasion...
