I'm in the mood to watch a movie and have some ice cream and treat myself since I have no one to do it with tonight (or any night lol), any recommendations? Please write a little synopsis what it's about too. ♥

 

I better post this as a status update so people will read this...

can they just put Annihilation up on Netflix already and not on March 12... pretty much my most anticipated film this year (well at least so far, along with Tomb Raider  :hooker:), I read the books ages ago and I'm very much looking forward to listening to the score tomorrow at midnight. Reading all these positive and praising reviews makes the wait even more of an ordeal...  :crossed:

And for those of you who don't know about it, it's a film written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina), based on the first book of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy. Starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Oscar Isaac for example, all of them absolutely brilliant. The books are quite trippy to say the least, I can't even imagine what the film is going to be like since the author said that it's even more surreal than the books. I loved Ex Machina so I give Garland all my trust though and I'm loving what I've seen so far. And like I said the reviews have been mostly very positive so far, some even claiming it to be the best sci-fi film in years and others describing it as a masterpiece.

However the test screenings earlier last year were quite poor and the studio wanted Garland to change some of the ending and Portman's character a bit since the film is apparently "too intellectual" and complicated for the general public - and having read the book, it doesn't come to me as a surprise at all. Garland however refused and now it's getting a theatrical release only in the US, Canada and China on Friday and starts streaming on Netflix 17 days later everywhere else. I guess you could say that it's being marketed as some sort of a monster flick (which definitely isn't what the book has to offer) but thankfully the director himself said that the trailers are actually quite misleading, with the emphasis actually not being on the relationship of Portman and Isaac's characters and well, the monster(s) as much as the trailers suggest.

Anyways, I just can't wait to see the film because I'm beyond excited.  :party: A shame I won't be able to see it on the big screen but at least because of the Netflix deal I can watch it anytime I want without having to wait months for a blu-ray release (which I will most likely end up buying though).

Has anyone seen Danish Girl? Was it good/bad? What was your impression of it?

I'm interested in going, I really hope that they didn't fuck it up by making it a PG13 movie and excluding the wild side of Freddies life. I think Rami will do fine in it but Sacha Baron Cohens seemed like a better pick for Freddie.

I do hope it will be good enough since Queen still have a lot of fans today and many admired Freddie... people will always complain about something of course, but yes, I hope they tell his story good.
