Discussion: Thoughts On Actual Dating Advice?

2020.08.15 00:37 Tyler_Gatsby Discussion: Thoughts On Actual Dating Advice?

We get a lot of talk and reference about the, "plight of the average guy in the dating world" here, and also the occasional jab at the, "elderly" here on if they have anything to really say or add of relevance to the modern dating market.
So if the mods will allow it, (I know this isn't purge week) I'd like to throw up a playful discussion post for any and all pills to throw out what they think is relevant advice or pointers.
As an, "old guy" here, not old to PPD, just old... I'll lead off with what I think are some important and useful tips.
Posture. Guys, do not slouch. A lot to most women don't even consciously notice you doing it, but they subconsciously notice and react negatively to it. You can even see it and pick up on it in pictures.
Physical approach angles matter. Don't directly face a woman you don't know with your whole body pointing at her from nose to toes. This is subconsciously antagonizing/threatening, and most people, particular women will immediately turn their body away from you to give themself an exit. They won't even realize they did it. Turning away from you or stepping back is the opposite of what you want her to do.
Ideally you want to address a woman from an angle or her side, be by her side, and you can get closer, or get her to get closer to you. Test this, walk up to a stranger, directly facing them, and watch them as you get closer. Then try more from the side, and see which way you can get closer without them turning or stepping away.
Women that are the most interested/best bets will tend to more directly face you, or lean in more/close the gap to talk to you.
If you are approaching multiple women, or a group of women, the one who likes you the most will most likely put herself out there a bit. It may be a slight lean in when she talks, or just the one who takes the baby step forward. Watch for this, this girl is your best bet.
Cologne. Less is more here. Don't crop dust the place, you are not Antonio Banderas. The object is to smell better the closer she gets to you. That way maybe she will get closer to you. "Is that, him?! sneakily leans in to sniff" is the sort of reaction you are going for.
You can do this with layers of smell, deodorant, lotion, it all has to work together. Ideally you'll find some that match up with your body chemistry really well. Admittedly that takes some work. I found a deodorant that works with me great for example, and have been sniffed just with that.
That smell advice goes for women as well. We do not need to smell you've been in the room to go looking for you. You have these things called pheromones, use them to your advantage. Men drool and want to pick you up when you are working out, or been working, and, "feeling all icky" for a reason. You can take advantage of that.
Women, check up on men's stories, or remember details to grill him on later down the road. Habitual lying players will purposefully tell you outlandish lies, act/seem dumb AF and obliviously go along with whatever he says at first like you believe him. Wait for it. Give him enough rope, and he'll hang himself with words. You just have to not be a dumb B, and naively really believe whatever BS he's giving you.
In get most of you more experienced girls probably have more of a, "he's lying" by default assumption in your head, and this is healthy. So long as you don't go too far negative Nancy with it, and sabotage yourself before you even get alone.
Old bastard rant and ramble over, please add or pitch fork me over whatever now:)

2020.05.22 06:00 assessment_bot [ Non-Fatal ] [ 01/11/2020 ] Piper PA46, Bandera/ TX

On January 11, 2020, about 1720 central standard time, a Piper PA-46-350P, N350XL, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Bandera, Texas. The pilot and 1 passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.
The pilot reported that he was on a local flight and filed and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) flight plan. He took off from the San Antonio International Airport (SAT) and his intention was to return to SAT after the flight. Takeoff was normal and the airplane performed as expected. After being cleared to climb to 24,000 ft, he heard what seemed to be some sort of sound as if metal was rubbing against metal," and the sound subsided. The pilot continued the flight and all engine performance indications were as expected. The pilot asked Air Traffic Control (ATC) to start his return to SAT. Descending through about 11,000 ft, ATC cleared the pilot to descend and maintain 6,000 ft. While descending, a CAS message, "AVI FAN Fail," message appeared on the primary flight display (PFD). The message was white in color. He consulted his Garmin 1000 (G1000) reference guide to decode the CAS message and to see the recommended procedure for troubleshooting the code. The pilot stated that since the CAS message was white in color, he thought that it was "advisory" in nature, because the manual stated that a "white" CAS message was Advisory, "yellow," was Caution, and "red" was Warning.
As the pilot was consulting the G1000 manual, smoke started to come into the cabin from the front of the cockpit. The pilot immediately suspected an electrical fire. He disconnected the autopilot, lowered the landing gear, turned the battery master switch off, dumped cabin pressure, and turned the EMER switch on. As a precaution, he also pulled the hydraulic pump circuit breaker just in case it was the cause of the electrical fire. The pilot had his passenger read out the emergency checklist for an electrical fire. After completing the checklist, the pilot radioed a "Mayday." Meanwhile, the pilot searched for the nearest airport to land, which was about 13 miles from his position. The airplane was in a 600-foot per minute descent. Smoke was still coming into the cabin, and the pilot's "eyes were burning," The pilot decided that he had to land the airplane without delay because of the potential fire. A red "X" indication appeared on the manifold pressure gauge as the pilot was descending. The airplane seemed to be descending at a higher rate of descent than the pilot expected.
The airplane was about 3,000-4,000 ft MSL and the terrain in the area was between 1,000-,2,000 ft AGL. The pilot thought that he did not have much time to land given the higher than expected rate of descent. He decided to land the airplane in what appeared to be a flat field directly ahead. The pilot chose his landing point in the field, and as the airplane got closer, the pilot saw that the field appeared to be a large field made up of three rectangular fields separated by fences, and the last fence was followed by thick trees. The pilot decided to land in the third field and planned on braking heavy to stop. Approaching the landing point, the pilot added one notch of flaps in, crossed over a fence, and the airplane landed. The pilot immediately realized that he was fast, and a collision with the another fence and trees would be unavoidable. The pilot thought that he had enough airspeed and momentum to try to clear the fence and trees, maybe even land on top of them rather than into them, so he rotated the airplane and cleared the obstacles. He immediately turned the airplane to the right and landed the airplane on an adjacent roadway. Upon landing, the airplane contacted a street sign post with the right wing and the airplane spun 90-degrees to the right, coming to rest with the nose against a roadway guardrail. The pilot and passenger exited the airplane and called for assistance. The outboard section of the right wing sustained substantial damage.
Because the airplane recovery was delayed, the valuable avionics were documented and removed from the airplane at the accident site, and the airplane needed to be partially disassembled for transport to an examination facility. The airplane was reassembled at the facility and a detailed examination was performed under the supervision of an FAA airworthiness inspector. All removed avionics were reinstalled as they were original in the airplane by a certified A&P technician under the supervision of the FAA inspector. The airplane's avionics were powered up and a methodical examination was performed on each electrical system, including the avionics cooling fans. After confirming that the pilot's side avionics cooling fan would not operate when connected to an electrical power source, the fan was disassembled. After removing the fan blades from the motor assembly, an area of thermal damage and discoloration was observed on the circuit board. Photographs of the fan assembly were immediately sent to the NTSB investigator-in-charge (IIC), and an NTSB fire specialist was consulted. The NTSB fire specialist stated that the damage to the fan circuit board would likely have produced smoke and the smoke would probably be irritating to the eyes, which was consistent with the pilot reported. No other damage or electrical anomalies were found during the examination.

2020.04.28 16:22 Ready2Jump7 He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not?


So a friend of mine I've known since kindergarten came back into my life about five years ago. After we reconnected, we sent emails back and forth for a few months. I went to a writing conference near where he lived, and he took me to dinner. I knew at that point he was married, but he was flirting with me like there was no tomorrow. He asked me if I wanted to be in a relationship, what my idea guy was, etc., and touched me about four times during dinner. He asked me question after question after question, even though he'd read my blog for close to eight years at that point. (He has it on an RSS feed so he never misses an update.)
Over the past five years, we've hung out maybe once a year (we live thousands of miles apart). Every time we get together, he asks me if I'm single. That is a sore point with me because he knows my history with men. They don't like me, they've never liked me, and probably will never like me. Please don’t ask me why—I’ve been trying to figure that out for decades. Asking me if I'm dating someone is like asking a homeless person if they are going to spend the summer at their house on the Hamptons. They don't have a house, and will never have a house on the Hamptons. It's cruel to ask.
I guess what I want to know is what you all out there think about this. He doesn't talk about his wife very much, and when he does, it's negative. She's anorexic.
There are little things he's done in the past that makes me think that he is concerned about making me happy, and to let me know he thinks of me. I got fed up with him asking me if I was dating anyone and confronted him on it. He said he is not interested in me, doesn't want anything from me, doesn't want to sleep with me, doesn't have an ulterior motive. He said he just wants to see me happy with a guy.
Thing is, why would he be so concerned if I'm dating anyone if he's not interested? Don't guys ask women if they are dating anyone because they are interested in the woman? I know that if I'm interested in a guy, I want to know EVERYTHING about him. Guys I'm not interested in I couldn't care less about.
I also asked him why he doesn't wear a wedding ring. He said it's because he's an unconventional guy. An unconventional guy who just happened to do something quite conventional--he got married. It's not like he has a job where if he wore a ring he might lose a finger.
Problem is, I think he's my dream man. I've only had one boyfriend in my entire life. I have massive trust issues with men. This guy has known me since kindergarten, and has read my blog, where I've vented several times about my fear and anger toward men, and not once has he told me, like at least one guy did, that I was a "trainwreck." Not once. The fact that he knows my history with men makes me think he would be willing to be patient with me. I'm not the kind of woman who attracts men easily, and to be honest, there are not a lot of men I find attractive. Yes, I've been on dating sites to try and distract myself from him. I never found anyone with a profile that really got me interested. I live in a foreign country now where I am not attracted to the majority of men (NO, I am NOT a lesbian) and it's hard to meet men I'm into partly because of my age.
I think because of my history with men, I mistake kindness for interest. But this guy seems to really work hard to make me happy whenever we get together--he always pays for the meal, dessert, asks me if I want to go sightseeing or bike riding, he really seems concerned about showing me a good time. More so than any guy I've ever dated.
I guess what bothers me is he SAYS he's not interested in me, but he always asks me once a year, face to face (never through email, text or phone) if I'm seeing anyone. I feel like even if he were available, he's totally out of my league. He's brilliant, successful, educated, traveled, accomplished, and adorable. It's not like I haven't done anything with my life, but I feel like I'm not his equal. Even if I lost more weight, I feel like it wouldn't be enough.
This last time, before I moved out of the U.S., he asked me if I were seeing anyone. The physical type I go for are guys who look like Ron Livingston, Antonio Banderas, John Krasinski. Basically, dark-haired white guys.
I know you are probably thinking, "just flat-out ask him again if he's interested in you." He tends to avoid questions he doesn't want to answer. And I asked him to an event happening later on this summer and he dodged the question. He never gave me a yes or no answer. I thought that was mean. He's usually really kind and polite to me. I would have understood if he turned me down--it wouldn't look so good if we showed up to a place where people knew us, and also knew he was married. But he just blew me off.
It's not like men are beating my door down here (they never have, they never will, and the tiny handful of men who ARE interested in me creep me out. After I accept their friend requests on Facebook, they ask me if I'm married and live alone) so it's not like I have anyone that I'm crazy about here that I want to spend time with.
We always have a good time when we are together. The only sore point is him asking me if I'm seeing anyone. Why would someone not interested keep asking that? There are other things in life that make me happy. To insinuate that having a guy in my life is going to make me happy is a bit insulting too. It would be nice to have a cool guy I'm really into (like this guy) to hang out with, but there are other things that I enjoy doing too.
Do you think the reason why this guy asks is because he's fed up with his wife (the last time we hung out, he described her as being "fu***d up") and is keeping tabs on me if he decides to leave her or she dies and he can make his move (she's been anorexic since 1995)? Or is he just a concerned friend who genuinely wants me happy, but flirts with me and does little things to show he thinks about me because he's missing that in his marriage?
I feel like I'm being emotionally manipulated. Because this guy works harder to make me happy whenever we go out, and has been more supportive of me than any guy I've ever dated. Even my one and only boyfriend wasn't as devoted as this guy.
I realize this is long. I'm a detail kind of gal, but if you have some insight, I would appreciate it. I will also answer any questions you might have about this. I'm willing to wait for this guy. But people have told me (and I agree) that if anyone else comes along and I'm really into him, I should take the chance. But honestly, I've never felt so comfortable and attracted to a man before. The fact that we have known each other since we were kids, and that he read my blog and still wants to hang out with me despite the angry things I've said about men is incredibly attractive. Despite having bad luck with men and saying hateful things about them, he has not condemned me for it. Most men, when they read my blog, dismiss me and actually say angry things, like being treated like crap by men is my fault. I never asked to be bullied or sexually molested. I just wanted to be accepted. It seems like this guy accepts me, in spite of it all. If he can read my blog and get past the anger and still want to be with me, it's as close to saying, "I love you" without actually saying the words.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading.

I know you are probably thinking, "just flat-out ask him again if he's interested in you." He tends to avoid questions he doesn't want to answer. And I asked him to an event happening later on this summer (that is, if it isn’t canceled) and he dodged the question. He never gave me a yes or no answer. I thought that was mean. He's usually really kind and polite to me. I would have understood if he turned me down--it wouldn't look so good if we showed up to a place where people knew us, and also knew he was married. But he just blew me off.
It's not like men are beating my door down here (they never have, they never will, and the tiny handful of men who ARE interested in me creep me out. After I accept their friend requests on Facebook, they ask me if I'm married and live alone) so it's not like I have anyone that I'm crazy about here that I want to spend time with.
We always have a good time when we are together. The only sore point is him asking me if I'm seeing anyone. Why would someone not interested keep asking that? There are other things in life that make me happy. To insinuate that having a guy in my life is going to make me happy is a bit insulting too. It would be nice to have a cool guy I'm really into (like this guy) to hang out with, but there are other things that I enjoy doing too.
Do you think the reason why this guy asks is because he's fed up with his wife (the last time we hung out, he described her as being "fu***d up") and is keeping tabs on me if he decides to leave her or she dies and he can make his move (she's been anorexic since 1995)? Or is he just a concerned friend who genuinely wants me happy, but flirts with me and does little things to show he thinks about me because he's missing that in his marriage?
I feel like I'm being emotionally manipulated. Because this guy works harder to make me happy whenever we go out, and has been more supportive of me than any guy I've ever dated. Even my one and only boyfriend wasn't as devoted as this guy.
I realize this is long. I'm a detail kind of gal, but if you have some insight, I would appreciate it. I will also answer any questions you might have about this. I'm willing to wait for this guy. But people have told me (and I agree) that if anyone else comes along and I'm really into him, I should take the chance. But honestly, I've never felt so comfortable and attracted to a man before. The fact that we have known each other since we were kids, and that he read my blog and still wants to hang out with me despite the angry things I've said about men is incredibly attractive. Despite having bad luck with men and saying hateful things about them, he has not condemned me for it. Most men, when they read my blog, dismiss me and actually say angry things, like being treated like crap by men is my fault. I never asked to be bullied or sexually molested. I just wanted to be accepted. It seems like this guy accepts me, in spite of it all. If he can read my blog and get past the anger and still want to be with me, it's as close to saying, "I love you" without actually saying the words.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading.

2020.04.10 21:31 insufferablewhiteguy A Newbie's 3-4 month collection/reflections and advice to others like me

http://imgur.com/a/U6dK8Yp
Hello everyone, below is a list of my collection left to right, 3 or 4 months in now. And then if interested, my reflections of what being a beginner collector has been like, being in the community, personal insecurity and addiction to the hobby.
L2R: - Antonio Banderas - Black Seduction - Versace - Dylan Blue - Versace - Pour Homme - CUBA - Gold - Mont Blanc - Explorer - Lalique - L'insoumis - Lalique - Encre Noir Sport - Bentley - For Men Intense - Bentley - For Men Azure - Kenneth Cole - Black Bold - Hugo Boss - Boss Bottled Intense EDP - Missoni - Pour Homme Parfum - GUESS - 1981 Los Angeles - Armaf - CDNIM - Halloween - Man - Halloween - Man Shot - Joop! - For Men - Bvlgari - Man Extreme - Coach - Platinum
PERSONAL REFLECTIONS FROM COLLECTING:
I don't want anything below to seem too glum, I LOVE the fragrance world since finding it and it hasn't ruined my life or anything, it's in fact enriched it. Just sharing for those out there starting, what a slippery slope it can be, because I know there are people out there with minds like mine who may fall into this cycle.
While I've always enjoyed fragrances, from high school to college I probably owned a total of 4 bottles. It was something I liked, but never thought twice about.
My first bottle here was the Explorer, and I realized how diverse the fragrance world just might be, and then found this subreddit.
I launched, like a rocket, right into it all. All the review channels, rabbit holes of "users have also liked these fragrances", obsessing over fragrantica reviews, spending countless hours and nights watching lists, reviews and the like on you tube, etc.
Afterpay has been a friend an enemy. While I never exceed my budget, I constantly have payments on deck, recieving new fragrances every two to four weeks. Since it has been within my fun money budget, never had an excuse not to. I was often ordering new batches in before the previous shipment even arrived.
Being a recovered alcoholic, I realized that Ironically, this is developing into a DIFFERENT kind of alcohol addiction. Easily recognizable and stoppable with the tools provided to me from a certain org. while others may have the Constitution that they don't care what others think, either based on what to buy or how to smell, (AKA normal thinking, lol) it certainly effected my purchases and wears for some time.
Reading reviews, rereading and rereading reviews, avoiding things with bad hype or scoffed at, not buying things based off brand pride or lack of pride for that matter, constantly asking people if they like my smell, overspraying to ensure others smelled me and fishing for compliments, wasting time during work or family time on my phone pouring over fragrances, etc.
I admit this not to draw a debate or look foolish, but now that I've come to appreciate buying things on my own verition, and wear things I like, and being okay with people smelling OR not smelling me, I know there are others who have validation issues like I have had before, and I'm here to tell you, fragrance collecting is so much more enjoyable when you simply do it for yourself, and not for the inclusion or attention of others.
So 3.5 months, 600 dollars, less compliments than I expected and some time to reflect later, I'm buying less, appreciating more, shopping smarter and not obsessing like I was. But most of all, just simply enjoying the hobby again, and not ruining it for myself.
Again. This may seem so obvious, I can hear the comments already "duh dude, who the hell wears cologne to seek validation from others, why not just buy what you want and wear what you want??"
While this seems obvious, many out there like myself struggle with these kinds of issues, in life in general. Particularly addiction, validation, inclusion, that craving for more. This was to hopefully reach out to someone who may fall down that initial rabbit hole like I did when getting into this halobby, to say "hey man, no rush. Enjoy the experience. You don't have to have as many scents as everyone else. You don't have to have as expensive scents as everyone else. You don't have to wear the same scents as everyone else. You don't have to worry about the next big thing, or what's dated, or what's overworn, or what's under or over rated, or what's tacky. You don't have to worry if everyone likes what you're wearing. Do it for you, responsibly."
TL;DR - An addictive personality initially corrupted a fun hobby into a money pit, validation outlet and obsession over the entire fragrance world. But I've learned to appreciate it for myself, and stop living around fragrances :)
Sorry for the long post, but thanks for being such a killer community guys! Feel free to ask any questions about the collection or the reflection!

2020.02.21 18:24 gdelgi [COLLECTION] Evita: from page to screen (various screenplay drafts)

Backstory

Since my Hair compendium post went over so well, I thought I'd share some more stuff that I've picked up over my years of foraging. Today, I start a series on a musical's transition from the stage to script to screen.
Our favorite shows are going to change when they're taken into another medium, be it by large or small degrees; that's the nature of adaptation. It's intriguing to see how multiple people view the same piece, and what makes the final cut as opposed to something else. And it's not even just because of changes in the creative team. On a film adaptation of a big-ticket item made by a major studio, it's common to have several versions going at a time. The commonplace (in the Thirties) practice of assigning different teams of writers to a work has never gone out of style. One just never hears about it because sometimes it takes years to get a film made, and they'll pick one version and not the other for a variety of reasons (typically the usual studio politics and bullshit; sometimes a version will even be written as a prop to force another writer they want on the project to get working, for example).
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita was one such stage-to-screen transfer. Rice and ALW had more control than most when it came to this film, perhaps as a result of seeing how the 1973 JCS went without much direct input from them. (That becomes immediately apparent when one sees some of the final film's ideas -- Eva at her father's funeral in the prologue, for example -- long before 1996, in every draft from 1982 to the final product, regardless of the name on the cover page.) But every adaptor brought different tastes and notions to the story, which made each version its own animal.
At any rate, it went through a lot of stops on the road to the cinema, and I'm happy to share a few of them with you today.

The Ken Russell version

This draft dates from the very first attempts to make Evita into a film, shortly after it opened on Broadway.
After its surprise success (following stories of a troubled out-of-town tryout, its London track record notwithstanding), the show's film rights were the subject of a bidding war; Warner Bros., MGM, Paramount all wanted in. Jon Peters tossed his hat in the ring, offering to guarantee then-girlfriend Barbra Streisand for the lead if he could produce. (Robert Stigwood, hoping to remain the film's sole producer, turned him down when it became clear this was the dealbreaker for Barbra's participation.) EMI Films won the war with a bid of $7.5 million, and names like Elton John and Barry Gibb began to be batted about for Ché, but after a string of box office flops and the Thorn EMI merger, Evita fell by the wayside.
In May 1981, Paramount acquired the rights (with Stigwood as producer), set a budget of $15 million (Stigwood, Rice, and ALW each negotiated a smaller salary in exchange for a higher gross percentage), and, on the strength of their previous mutual success with Tommy, Stigwood hired Ken Russell to direct and write the screenplay.
He proceeded to do the latter without Stigwood, Rice, or ALW's approval; the draft you'll see follows the outlines of the stage production, but establishes the character of Ché as a newspaper reporter. The script also contains a hospital montage for Eva and Ché, in which they pass each other on gurneys in white corridors as she is being treated for cancer, while Ché is beaten and injured by rioters. "Waltz for Eva and Ché" in particular is a scene in typical Russell style, a dream sequence taking place on the barren pampas, with the two surrounded by giant symbols of ruined civilizations and religions, crumbling hopes and dreams -- a fallen swastika, a headless Buddha, a battered eagle from imperial Rome, a rotting cross, a splintered pharaoh, and a rusty hammer and sickle -- which then vanished to be replaced by more familiar concerns, such as polluting smoke, smashed cars, barbed wire, and bleached bones.
Casting began in earnest. They screen-tested all eight of the actresses then playing Eva worldwide, but Russell was unsatisfied. Then Webber's wife (at the time) mentioned that she had seen Karla DeVito on Broadway in The Pirates of Penzance and was suitably impressed. DeVito, with a strong background in the rock world, happened to be in England at that moment shooting music videos for her solo album Is This a Cool World or What? Russell took the chance and screen-tested her at Elstree Studios, and her performance of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" reportedly brought the room to tears. That is, the room except Tim Rice. Tim, then romantically involved with the original West End Eva, Elaine Paige, considered the film role his girlfriend's exclusive property. Elaine was screen-tested twice, Russell didn't like her, but Tim was unwilling to budge, so pre-production temporarily stalled.
Assured he would be allowed final control of casting, Russell saw other possibilities a year later. Among them, he screen-tested Liza Minnelli (in a blonde wig and period gowns, no less). She was an established film actress, she had the talent, and the star quality oozed from the screen test. To Ken, she was ideally suited to the role. He approached Stigwood with the tape, and was assured his pick would be fairly considered... but now Stigwood, Rice, and ALW all insisted on Elaine when he asked what they thought. Seeing the writing on the wall and that (at least in his perception) Rice's mistress would be shoved down his throat regardless of his opinion, Ken said, "Minnelli, or I'm out." And so they fired him, and Evita went into turnaround (a Hollywood euphemism meaning "for sale -- cheap").
Other directors were approached -- Herbert Ross turned it down to direct Footloose, Richard Attenborough deemed the project impossible, Alan J. Pakula and Hector Babenco declined. One performer campaigning for the title role (we'll talk about her in a minute) tried to interest Francis Ford Coppola, to no avail. And then...

The Oliver Stone version

This is Oliver's draft.
The project began development again in 1987 when Jerry Weintraub's independent studio WEG acquired the rights to Evita from Paramount. Writer-director Oliver Stone, of all unlikely fans of the show, expressed interest in the project and was confirmed to write and direct in April 1988. He traveled to Argentina, visited Eva's birthplace, and met with President Carlos Menem, who agreed to provide 50,000 extras and not to say "boo" about the film's take on its central figure.
Stone even hooked up a lead: Meryl Streep. He, Rice, and ALW met with her at a recording studio in NY to do preliminary dubbings of the score. Stigwood was impressed: "She learned the entire score in a week. Not only can she sing, but she's sensational – absolutely staggering." The link above is to the screenplay that probably entered the picture around this time; after all, a film can't be greenlit without a script, and WEG allocated a $29 million budget around this time, with filming set to begin in early 1989.
Once again, tragedy struck, this time in threes:
  1. The 1989 riots in Argentina put a halt to the shooting schedule owing to concerns about cast and crew safety, which meant scouting for alternate locations in Brazil and Chile before settling on Spain.
  2. Settling on Spain increased the budget to $35 million owing to different contingencies, and unfortunately WEG's films weren't doing so hot at the box office, which meant they couldn't outlay that kind of cash. They dropped the project, and Stone had to seek out a new studio; ultimately, Carolco Pictures was willing to talk.
  3. Unfortunately for Carolco, Streep's star was rising, and she -- or her people -- realized that, as the front-runner, she could make demands. Her asking price grew, and she demanded a pay-or-play contract with a 48-hour deadline. They finally reached an agreement, but at the eleventh hour, Streep pulled out "for personal reasons," and that pulled the plug on Evita. (It's suspected this may have been a ploy for a bigger salary or the other film she was considering fell through, because ten days later she got back to them again still interested in the project, but Stone had already moved on to his next film, The Doors.)
Disney was the next studio to pick up the project in 1990, intending to release Evita under its "adult" label of Hollywood Pictures with Glenn Gordon Caron directing, but the budget mounted quickly past what Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg was willing to spend, and they pulled back. The film changed hands again, this time to producer Andrew Vajna and Cinergi Pictures, and Stone entered the picture again when his frequent partner Arnon Milchan was brought in as co-financier and the head of Hollywood Pictures had a chat with Stone. Antonio Banderas was locked for Ché when the project was at Disney, and in 1994, Stone confirmed Michelle Pfeiffer would be playing the title role. Production was set to begin in 1995 after Stone made Noriega, another film Milchan was financing/producing.
But ah, 'twas not to be... the combined high production costs of Noriega, Evita, and Stone's forthcoming Nixon were giving Milchan agita, he and Stone fought, Noriega never got made, and Stone left Evita that July.

The Alan Parker version

Finally, in December 1994, Alan Parker came in. (Again. After the 1976 concept album release, he'd met with TR and ALW's manager, David Land, asking if they were interested in a film of Evita, only to be told that they wanted to explore its stage possibilities first. By the time the show had opened in the West End and on Broadway, and Stigwood was ready to talk about the movie again, Parker had just completed shooting on Fame and turned it down, saying he "didn't want to do back-to-back musicals." Now the time was right.)
And there was a star interested: Madonna. (Again. She'd been angling for the part as far back as 1986, visiting Robert Stigwood's office dressed in a gown and 1940s-style hairdo to show her interest and trying to get Coppola to the table. When Stone was signed to the project shortly thereafter, she met with him and ALW to discuss her interest, but she requested script approval and discussed personally making alterations to the score. As anybody who knows what ALW's like knows, that made her a no-go. Disney brought her back into the picture when they took over, but that was scuttled when Stone came in and cast Michelle Pfeiffer. But... Pfeiffer had bowed out when she became pregnant with her second child, and Alan Parker was considering Glenn Close. Madonna put on a full-court press, sending Parker a four-page letter explaining why she was right for the project and enclosing her music video for "Take a Bow." Parker said "none of the shit you walked in the door with when you met Oliver Stone, I'm in charge," and Webber insisted on vocal coaching, but she was in. Now the time was right.)
And now, at last, they closed ranks on the final script. There was one final bit of wrangling about the authorship of that script; Parker claimed he had ignored previous drafts of the film and the stage version, preferring to start fresh with the concept album and incorporate whatever TR and ALW wanted from there as it worked with his plans, but Oliver Stone found what he saw as significant contributions of his in Parker's script. A legal dispute and arbitration by the Writers Guild of America resulted in Parker and Stone sharing screenwriting credit. A mixed victory, to be sure, but at least two visions of the film sort of won out in the end.
And that's all they wrote. Enjoy!

2020.02.18 01:12 jonisantucho Oscars 2021: An inside look (like, really inside) to 50 possible contenders in the next awards race

Another Oscar ceremony happened, and we got our fair share of joy and disappointment. After Parasite surprised the world and took Best Picture, it seems like the game has changed for the awards race, now that non-English speaking films can actually fight and be recognized as well as classics as… Green Book. The Oscar race is still full of pain and glory, and even though the year has barely started, we have a bunch of movies that are fighting for air. And here’s 50 of them. Yes, I had some free time in my hands and this is a cool hobby, so I took the liberty to introduce most of the movies that will have Film Twitter entertained for the following 12 months. I say most, because there are always contenders who come out of nowhere later in the year, so this is the starter set. Here we go.
-Annette: Since Parasite’s road to the Oscars started at Cannes, it seems fair to talk about a movie that is circling a premiere in the world stage that is set in France. After delivering weird, indie classics like Mauvais Sang and Holy Motors (yes, the kind of movies that make you seem like a snob when you recommend them to people), Leos Carax is making his first movie spoken in the English language… and it has a musical screenplay written by the cult rock duo of Sparks. Recently robbed Adam Driver and previous Oscar winner Marion Cotillard sing in this tale of a stand-up comedian and a famous soprano singer who rise and fall in Los Angeles while their daughter is born with a special gift. It seems like a wild bet, but we already know that Carax is a master with musical moments, so this is one of the most intriguing question marks of the year.
-Ammonite: It’s time to talk narratives. On the one hand, we have Kate Winslet, a known name who hasn’t been very successful in the Oscar race since her Oscar win for The Reader over a decade ago (with the exception being her supporting performance in Steve Jobs, where she had a weird accent). On the other, we have Saoirse Ronan, a star on the rise who keeps collecting Oscar nominations, with 4 nods at the age of 25, including her fresh Best Actress loss for Little Women. What happens if we put them together in a drama set in the coasts of England during the 19th century where both of them fall for each other? That’s gonna be a winning formula if writedirector Francis Lee (who tackled queer romance in his acclaimed debut God’s Own Country) nails the Mary Anning story, and Neon (the distribution company founded three years ago that took Parasite to victory) is betting on it.
-Benedetta: We know the Paul Verhoeven story. After isolating himself from Hollywood for over a decade, he took Isabelle Huppert to an Oscar nominated performance with the controversial, sexy, dark and funny thriller Elle. Now, he’s back with another story that perks up the ears, because now he’s covering the life of Benedetta Carlini, a 17th-century lesbian nun who had religious and erotic visions. If you know Paul, you already can tell that this fits into his brand of horniness, and a possible Cannes premiere could tell us if this has something to carry itself to Oscar night.
-Blonde: With a short but impactful directorial credits list that takes us from Chopper, to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford to Killing Them Softly, Andrew Dominik is back with a film about Marilyn Monroe, a woman who has transcended the ideas of fame and stardom, in ways that are glamorous and nightmarish at the same time. After failing to launch with Naomi Watts or Jessica Chastain,the rising Ana de Armas takes the lead in the retelling of Monroe’s troubled life based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, which is said to be covered in the screenplay as somewhat of a horror movie. We don’t know what that means yet, but Netflix is gonna push hard for this one, especially considering how the Academy loves throwing awards to stars playing previous stars, and that also can possibly include co-stars Bobby Cannavale and Adrien Brody.
-Breaking News in Yuba County: While he hasn’t gone back to the heights of his success achieved by the box office and award success of The Help (a movie that did not age well), Tate Taylor is still enjoying himself economically due to recent thrillers like The Girl on the Train and Ma. For his next movie, he’s made a dramedy that once again reunites him with Oscar winner Allison Janney, where she plays a woman who has to keep appearances and a hidden body when she catches her husband cheating on her, and then he dies of a heart attack. With a cast that also includes Mila Kunis, Regina Hall, Awkwafina, Samira Wiley, Wanda Sykes, Jimmi Simpson and Ellen Barkin, this could be a buzzy title later this year.
-C’mon C’mon: You may love or hate whatever Joaquin Phoenix did in Joker, but you can’t deny the benefit of playing the Crown Prince of Crime in an Oscar-winning performance. The blank check that you share with indie directors afterwards. Now that Joaquin’s cultural cachet is on the rise, Mike Mills gets to benefit with this drama that stars Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann, with him playing an artist left to take care of his precocious young nephew as they forge an unexpected bond over a cross country trip. We only have to wonder if A24 will do better with this movie’s Oscar chances compared to 20th Century Women.
-Cherry: After killing half the universe and bringing them back with the highest grossing movie of all time, where do you go? For Joe and Anthony Russo, the answer is “away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe”. The Russo brothers are trying to distance themselves and prove that they have a voice without Kevin Feige behind them, with a crime drama that’s also different than their days when they directed You, Me and Dupree or episodes of Arrested Development and Community. To help them in the journey, they took Tom Holland (who also needs to distance himself from Spider-Man, lest he ends up stuck to the character in the audience’s eyes) to star in a crime drama based on former Army medic Nico Walker’s memoir about his days after Iraq, where the PTSD and an opioid addiction led him to start robbing banks.
-Da 5 Bloods: After bouncing back from a slump with the critical and commercial success of BlackKklansman, Spike Lee is cashing a Netflix check to tell the tale of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam to search for their fallen leader and some treasure. With a cast that includes Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Paul Walter Hauser and Chadwick Boseman, this sounds like an interesting combo, although we still should remember the last time that Spike tried his hand at a war movie, with the dull Miracle at St. Anna.
-Dune: If you are on Reddit, you probably know about the new film by movies’ new Messiah, Denis Villeneuve. While the epic sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert is getting a new chance in the multiplexes after that David Lynch movie that was forgotten by many, some are hoping that this will be the beginning of a new franchise (as seen by the release date of December 18, taking the spot of the usual Star Wars opening), and a return to the whole “remember when stuff like Return of the King or Fury Road were nominated for Best Picture?” question. Timothee Chalamet will be riding a lot of hope, and sandworm.
-Everybody’s Talking About Jamie: As you start to see, there are several musicals that are gonna be fighting for attention over the next year, and Annette was the first one. Now, we also have this adaptation of the hit West End production, that centers around a gay British teenager who dreams of becoming a drag queen and get his family and schoolmates to accept his sexuality. With a cast that mixes young unknowns, familiar Brits (Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and my boy Ralph Ineson) and the previously nominated legend that is Richard E. Grant (who is playing a former drag queen named Loco Chanelle), the creative team of the stage musical will jump to the big screen with the help of Fox Searchlight (sorry, just Searchlight), who has clear Oscar hopes with a release date right in the middle of awards heat, on October 23.
-Hillbilly Elegy: Even though the Parasite victory gave many people hope for a new Academy that stops recognizing stuff like previous winner Green Book… let’s be honest, the Academy will still look for movies like Green Book. This year, many people are turning their eyes towards Ron Howard’ adaptation of J.D. Vance’s memoir about his low income life in a poor rural community in Ohio, filled with drugs, violence and verbal abuse. If this sounds like white trash porn, it doesn’t help to know that Glenn Close, who has become the biggest living Oscar bridesmaid with seven nominations, will play a character called Mamaw. And if that sounds trashy, then you have to know that Amy Adams, who follows Glenn with six nominations, is playing her drug-addicted, careless daughter. I don’t want to call this “Oscar bait”, but it sure is tempting.
-I’m Thinking of Ending Things: After his stopmotion existential dramedy Anomalisa got him a Best Animated Feature nomination at the Oscars but at the same time bombed at the box office, Charlie Kaufman is getting the Netflix check. This time, he’s adapting the dark novel by Iain Reid, about a woman (Jessie Buckley, who is on the rise and took over the role after Brie Larson had to pass) who is taken by her boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to meet his parents (Toni Collette and David Thewlis), in a trip that takes a turn for the worse. If Kaufman can deliver with this one, it will be a big contender.
-In the Heights: Yes, more musicals! This time, it’s time to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first Tony-winning musical, that was overshadowed because of his other small play about some treasury secretary. Now, his Broadway ensemble tale about life in a neighborhood in Washington Heights is jumping to the movie screen with Jon Chu at the helm, following the success of Crazy Rich Asians. This Latino tale mixes up-and-comers like Anthony Ramos (who comes straight from Hamilton and playing Lady Gaga’s friend in A Star is Born), names like Corey Hawkins and Jimmy Smits (who is pro bits), and Olga Merediz, who starred in the Broadway show as Abuela Claudia and who could be the early frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress, if Chu allows her to shine like she did onstage.
-Jesus Was My Homeboy: When looking at up-and-coming Black actors right now in Hollywood, two of the top names are Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield, who already appeared in the same movie in Get Out, which earned Kaluuya a Best Actor nomination. This time, they share the screen in Shaka King’s retelling of the story of Fred Hampton (Kaluuya), an activist and Black Panther leader… as well as the story of William O’Neal (Stanfield), the FBI agent sent by J. Edgar Hoover to infiltrate the party and arrest him. With the backing of Warner Bros, this will attempt to make an impact with a clash of actors that will have to fight with an August release date, not the ideal time to release an awards movie.
-King Richard: Starting with Suicide Squad, Will Smith has been trying to prove that he’s back and better than ever. Some attempts to get back to the top of the A-list (Aladdin, Bad Boys For Life) have worked, while others (Gemini Man, Spies in Disguise)... have not. But Will is still going, and now he’s going for his next prestige play as he plays Richard Williams, the coach and father of the tennis legends Venus and Serena, who pushed them to their full potential. While it’s weird that the father of the Williams sisters is getting a movie before them, it does sound like a meaty role for Smith, who has experience with Oscar notices with sports biopics because of what he did with Michael Mann in Ali. Let’s hope director Reinaldo Marcus Green can take him there too.
-Last Night in Soho: Every year, one or two directors who have a cool reputation end up in the Dolby Theatre, and 2020 could be the year of Edgar Wright. After delivering his first big box office hit with Baby Driver, the Brit is going back to London to tell a story in the realm of psychological horror, which has been supposedly inspired by classics like Don’t Look Now and Repulsion. With a premise that supposedly involves time travel and a cast that includes Anya-Taylor Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith and Diana Rigg, Wright (who also co-wrote this with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was just nominated for Best Original Screenplay for her work in 1917) is making a big swing.
-Let Them All Talk: Every year there’s more new streaming services, and that also means that there’s new players in the Oscar game. To secure subscribers to the new service, HBO Max has secured the rights to the next Steven Soderbergh movie, a comedy that stars Meryl Streep as a celebrated author that takes her friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) and her nephew (Lucas Hedges, again) in a journey to find fun and come to terms with the past. The last time that Soderbergh and Streep worked together, the end result was the very disappointing The Laundromat. Let’s hope that this time everything works out.
-Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: Now that Netflix got the deal to adapt August Wilson’s acclaimed plays with Denzel Washington’s production company, the next jump from the stage to the screen is a meaty one. Viola Davis is playing blues singer Ma Rainey in this tale of a heated recording session with her bandmates, her agent and her producer in 1927, with a cast that also includes Chadwick Boseman, Glynn Turman and Colman Domingo. The Tony nominated play talked about race, art and the intersection of the two, and it’s gonna be explosive to see that unfold on screen, even if director George C. Wolfe’s previous filmography isn’t very encouraging.
-Macbeth: In a shocking development, the Coen brothers are no more. Well, just this time. For the first time in his career, Joel Coen is making a movie without Ethan, and it’s a Shakespeare adaptation. Denzel Washington is playing the man who wants to be king of Scotland, and Frances McDormand is playing his Lady Macbeth. While this just started filming and it will be a race to finish it in time for competition in the awards race, the potential is there, and this project has everybody’s attention.
-Mank: After scoring 24 Oscar nominations and only winning 2 awards last Sunday, Netflix has to wonder what else must they do to get in the club that awards them. They tried with Cuarón, they tried with Scorsese, they tried with Baumbach, they tried with two Popes, and they still feel a barrier. Now, the big gamble for awards by the streamer in 2020 comes to us in the hands of David Fincher, who is basically their friend after the rest of Hollywood denied him (Disney dropped his 20,000 Leagues adaptation, HBO denied the US remake of Utopia, and Paramount drove World War Z 2 away from him). In his first movie since 2014’s Gone Girl, David will go black and white to tackle a script by his late father about the making of the classic of classics, Citizen Kane, with previous Oscar winner Gary Oldman playing the lead role of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. Will the Academy fall for the ultimate “power of da moviesshhh” story?
-Minari: Sundance can be hit or miss with the breakout films that try to make it to the Oscars. However, you can’t deny the waves made by A24 when they premiered Lee Isaac Chung’s new drama there, ending up winning the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition. If Parasite endeared Academy voters to Korean families, Steven Yeun hopes that the same thing happens with this story, where he plays a father in the ‘80s who suddenly decides to move his family to Arkansas to start a farm. Even though the reviews have been great, we must also remember that last year, A24 had in their hands The Farewell, another Sundance hit about an Asian family that ended up with no Oscar nominations. Let’s hope that this time, the Plan B influence (remember, that’s Brad Pitt’s production company, of Moonlight and 12 Years a Slave fame) makes a difference.
-Next Goal Wins: It’s a good time to be Taika Waititi. Why? Taika Waititi can do what he wants. He can direct a Thor movie, he can win an Oscar for writing a comedy set in WW2 about a Third Reich boy who has an Imaginary Hitler friend, or he can pop up in The Mandalorian as a droid. Taika keeps winning, and he wants more. Between his press tour for Jojo Rabbit and his return to the MCU, he quickly shot an adaptation of a great documentary about the disgraced national team of American Samoa, one of the worst football teams known to man, as they try to make the cut for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Everybody loves a good sports comedy, and Searchlight bets that we’ll enjoy this story led by Michael Fassbender as the new (and Dutch-American) coach in town who tries to shape the team for victory.
-News of the World: Seven years after their solid collaboration in Captain Phillips, Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks reunite for more awards love in what seems to be Universal’s main attraction for the Oscars. This time, Hanks stars in a Western drama based on Paulette Jiles’ novel where he plays a traveling newsreader in the aftermath of the American Civil War who is tasked with reuniting an orphaned girl with her living relatives. With a Christmas release date, Universal is betting big in getting the same nomination boost that 1917 is enjoying right now, and the formula is promising.
-Nightmare Alley: Following his Best Picture and Best Director wins for The Shape of Water, everybody in Hollywood wondered what would Guillermo del Toro do next. Well, as Del Toro often does, a little bit of everything and nothing. Some projects moved (as his produced Pinocchio movie on Netflix, or his Death Stranding likeness cameo), others stalled and die (like his proposed Fantastic Voyage remake). But now he’s rolling on his next project, a new adaptation of the William Lindsay Gresham novel that already was a Tyrone Power film in 1947. This noir tale tells the story of a con man (Bradley Cooper) who teams up with a psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) to trick people and win money, and how things get out of control. With a cast that also includes Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara and more, this could play well if it hits the right tone.
-Nomadland: There’s breakout years, and then there’s the amazing potential of Chloe Zhao’s 2020. On the one hand, after making Hollywood notice her skill with the gripping story of The Rider, she got the keys to the MCU kingdom to direct the next potential franchise of Kevin Feige, The Eternals. And just in case, she also has in her sleeve this indie drama that she wrote and directed beforehand, with two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand playing a woman who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. If Chloe nails these two films, it could be the one-two punch of the decade.
-One Night in Miami: Regina King is living her best life. Following her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress in If Beale Street Could Talk and the success that came with her lead role in the Watchmen show on HBO, the actress is jumping to a new challenge: directing movies. For her big screen debut, she’s adapting Kemp Powers’ play that dramatizes a real meeting on February 25, 1964, between Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown.
-Over the Moon: After earning praise and Oscar nominations with I Lost My Body and Klaus, Netflix will keep its bet on animated movies with a film directed by the legendary Glen Keane. Who? A classic Disney animator responsible for the design of characters like Ariel, the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Tarzan and more](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jRkx2PNVr8), and who recently won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for Dear Basketball, which he co-directed with the late Kobe Bryant. Now, he brings us a musical adventure centered around a Chinese girl who builds a rocket ship and blasts off to the Moon in hopes of meeting a legendary Moon Goddess.
-Passing: It’s always interesting when an actor jumps behind the camera, and Rebecca Hall’s case is no exception. For her directorial debut, Hall chose to adapt Nella Larsen’s acclaimed novel set in Harlem in the 1920s, about two mixed race childhood friends (Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson) who reunite in adulthood and become obsessed with one another's lives. With a premise that explores tough questions about race and sexuality, it looks like a tricky challenge for a first timer, but it would be more impressive if Hall manages to rise over the challenge.
-Prisoner 760: An interesting part of following the awards circuit is looking at when it's appropriate to talk about touchy subjects in recent history. I’m saying that because this next movie tells the real life tale of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), a man who, despite not being charged or having a set trial, is held in custody at Guantanamo Bay, and turns towards a pair of lawyers (Jodie Foster and Shailene Woodley) to aid him. Based on the famous journal that the man wrote while he was being detained, the movie (that also counts with Benedict Cumberbatch) is directed by Kevin Macdonald who, a long time ago, helped Forest Whitaker win Best Actor for The Last King of Scotland. Could he get back in the race after almost 15 years of movies like State of Play?
-Raya and the Last Dragon: This year, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ bet for the Oscars is a fantasy tale set in a mysterious realm called Kumandra, where a warrior named Raya searches for the last dragon in the world. And that dragon has the voice of Awkwafina. Even though they missed out last Oscars when Frozen II got the cold shoulder by the Academy in Best Animated Feature, this premise looks interesting enough to merit a chance. One more thing: between last year’s Abominable, Over the Moon and this movie, there’s a clear connection of animated movies trying to appeal to Chinese sensibilities (and that sweet box office).
-Rebecca: It’s wild to think that the only time that Alfred Hitchcock made a film that won the Oscar for Best Picture was with 1940’s adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller novel, more muted and conventional than his more known classics. Now, Ben Wheatley and Netflix are giving the Gothic story a new spin, with Lily James playing the newly married young woman who finds herself battling the shadow of her husband's (Armie Hammer) dead first wife, the mysterious Rebecca. The story is a classic, and we have to see how much weird Wheatley stuff is in the mix.
-Red, White and Water: Between 2011 and 2014, Jennifer Lawrence was everywhere and people loved it. She was America’s sweetheart, the Oscar winner, Katniss Everdeen. But then, everything kinda fell. Those X-Men movies got worse and she looked tired of being in them, her anecdotes got less charming and more pandering to some, she took respectable risks that didn’t pay off with Red Sparrow and Mother!, and some people didn’t like that she said that it wasn’t nice to share private photos of her online. Now, she looks to get back to the Oscar race with a small project funded by A24 and directed by Lila Neugebauer in her film debut, about a soldier who comes back to the US after suffering a traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan. Also, Brian Tyree Henry is in this, and it would be amazing if he got nominated for something.
-Respect: You know what’s a surefire way to get Academy voters’ attention? Play a real singer! Rami Malek took a win last year for playing Freddie Mercury, Renee Zellweger just won the gold after portraying Judy Garland, and now Jennifer Hudson wants more Oscar love. Almost 15 years after taking Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls, Hudson will try to get more by playing soul legend Aretha Franklin, in a biopic directed by first timer Liesl Tommy that practically screams “give me the gold”. How am I so sure? Well, see the teaser that they released in December (for a movie that opens in October), and tell me. It will work out better for Hudson than Cats, that’s for sure.
-Soul: Unless they really disappoint (I’m looking at you, The Good Dinosaur, Cars 2 and Cars 3), you can’t have the Oscars without inviting Pixar to the party. This year, they have two projects in the hopes of success. While in a few weeks we’ll see what happens with the fantasy family road trip of Onward, the studio’s biggest bet of the year clearly is the next existential animation written and directed by Pete Docter, who brought Oscar gold to his home with Up and Inside Out. The movie, which centers on a teacher (voice of Jamie Foxx) who dreams of becoming a jazz musician and, just as he’s about to get his big break, ends up getting into an accident that separates his soul from his body, had a promising first trailer, and it also promises a score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, as well as new songs by Jon Batiste. The only downside so far for the marketing was the fact that the trailer reveal led people to notice a suspicious trend involving black characters when they lead an animated movie.
-Tenet: When Leonardo DiCaprio finally touched his Academy Award, an alarm went off in the mind of a portion of Internet users, who have made their next crusade to give themselves to the cause of getting Christopher Nolan some Oscar love. And his next blank check, an action thriller involving espionage and time travel, could pull off the same intersection of popcorn and prestige that made Inception both a box office hit and a critically acclaimed Oscar nominee. It helps to have a cast of impressive names like John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson, as well as a crew that includes Ludwig Goransson and Hoyte van Hoytema. In other words, if this becomes a hit, this could go for a huge number of nominations.
-The Devil All the Time: As you may have noticed by now, Netflix is leading the charge in possible Oscar projects. Another buzzy movie that comes from them is the new psychological thriller by Antonio Campos, a filmmaker known for delivering small and intimate but yet intense and terrifying dramas like Simon Killer and Christine. Using the novel by Donald Ray Pollock, Campos will follow non-linearly a cast of characters in Ohio between the end of World War II and the beginning of the Vietnam War, with the help of an interesting cast that includes Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Bill Skarsgard, Jason Clarke and Riley Keough.
-The Eyes of Tammy Faye: After being known as a sketch comedy goofball because of The State, Wet Hot American Summer and Stella, Michael Showalter reinvented himself as a director of small and human dramedies like Hello, My Name is Doris and The Big Sick. For his next project, he’s gonna mix a little bit of both worlds, because he has before him the story of the televangelists Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain, who has been really trying to recapture her early ‘10 awards run to no avail) and Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield, who was previously nominated for Hacksaw Ridge, instead of Silence, because why). With a real life tale that involves Christian theme parks, fraud and conspiracies, this is the kind of loud small movie that Searchlight loves to parade around, especially as an actors showcase (Jojo Rabbit being the most recent example). The first image looks terrifying, by the way.
-The Father: It’s weird to be in the middle of February and say that there’s already a frontrunner for the Best Actor race at the next Oscars. After its premiere in Sundance a couple of weeks ago, every prognosticator pointed in the direction of Anthony Hopkins (recently nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Two Popes), who delivers a harrowing portrayal of an old man grappling with his age as he develops dementia, causing pain to his beleaguered daughter (recent winner Olivia Colman, who also got praised). With reviews calling it a British answer to Amour (in other words: it’s a hard watch), Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his acclaimed play not only benefits from having Hopkins and Colman together as a selling point, because it was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, a distributor with experience in getting Academy voters to watch adult movies with heavy themes. If you don’t believe me, watch how they got Julianne Moore a win for Still Alice, as well as recent nominations for Isabelle Huppert for Elle, Glenn Close for The Wife, and Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory. They know the game, and they are going to hit hard for Hopkins and Colman.
-The French Dispatch: If you saw the trailer, we don’t need to dwell too much on the reasons. On the one hand, we have the style of Wes Anderson, a filmmaker who has become a name in both the critics circle and the casual viewer, with his last two movies (The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs) earning several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture for the one with Gustave H. Then, we have a long cast that goes from the director’s regulars like Bill Murray to new stars like Timothee Chalamet, and also includes people like Benicio del Toro. The only thing that could endanger the Oscar chances for this is that the story, an anthology set around a period comedy with an European riff on The New Yorker, will alienate the average Academy member.
-The Humans: There’s the prestige of a play, and then there’s the prestige of a Tony-winning play. Playwright Stephen Karam now gets to jump to the director’s chair to take his acclaimed 2016 one-act story to the big screen, and A24 is cutting the check. Telling the story of a family that gets together on Thanksgiving to commiserate about life, this adaptation will be led by original performer Jayne Houdyshell (who also won a Tony for her stage performance), who’ll be surrounded by Richard Jenkins, Beanie Feldstein, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun and June Squibb. If it avoids getting too claustrophobic or stagey for the cinema, it will be a good contender.
-The Last Duel: Always speedy, Ridley Scott is working on his next possible trip to the Oscars. This time, it’s the telling of a true story in 14th-century France, where a knight (Matt Damon) accuses his former friend (Adam Driver) of raping his wife (Jodie Comer), with the verdict being determined by the titular duel. It’s a juicy story, but there was some concern when it seemed that the script was only being written by Damon and Ben Affleck (who’ll also appear in the film). A rape story written by them after the Weinstein revelations… not the best look. But then, it was revealed that they were writing the screenplay with indie figure Nicole Holofcener, who last year was nominated for an Oscar for her script for Can You Ever Forgive Me? Let’s hope that the story is told in a gripping but not exploitative way, and that it doesn’t reduce the role of Comer (who deserves more than some of the movie roles that she’s getting after Killing Eve) to a Hollywood stereotype.
-The Power of the Dog: We have to talk about the queen of the indie world, we have to talk about Jane Campion. More than a decade after her last movie, Bright Star, the Oscar and Palme d’Or winner for The Piano returns with a non-TV project (see Top of the Lake, people) thanks to Netflix, with a period drama centered around a family dispute between a pair of wealthy brothers in Montana, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Burbank (Jesse Plemons), after the latter one marries a local widow (Kirsten Dunst). According to the synopsis, “a shocked and angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her entirely using her effeminate son Peter as a pawn”. Can’t wait to see what that means.
-The Prom: Remember the Ryan Murphy blank check deal with Netflix that I mentioned earlier? Well, another of the projects in the first batch of announcements for the deal is a musical that he’ll direct, adapting the Tony-nominated show about a group of Broadway losers (now played by the one and only Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and, uh, James Corden, for some reason) who try to find a viral story to get back in the spotlight, and end up going to a town in Indiana to help a lesbian high school student who has been banned from bringing her girlfriend to the prom. The show has been considered a fun and heartwarming tale of acceptance, so the movie could be an easy pick for an average Academy voter who doesn’t look too hard (and you know that the Golden Globes will nominate the shirt out of this). It’s funny how this comes out the same year than Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, and then it’s not funny realizing that Film Twitter will pit the two movies against each other.
-The Trial of the Chicago 7: After getting a taste of the director’s taste with Molly’s Game, Aaron Sorkin wants more. For his second movie, he’s tackling one of his specialties: a courtroom drama. And this one is a period movie centered around the trial on countercultural activists in the late ‘60s, which immediately attracts a campaign of how “important” this movie is today’s culture. To add the final blow, we have a cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, William Hurt, Michael Keaton and Mark Rylance. If Sorkin can contain himself from going over the top (and with that cast, it would be so easy to surrender to bouts of screaming and winding speeches), this could be one of the top contenders.
-Those Who Wish Me Dead: Having made a good splash in the directorial waters with Wind River, Taylor Sheridan (also known for writing the Sicario movies, the Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water or that Yellowstone show that your uncle raves about on Facebook) returns with yet another modern Western. For this thriller based on the Michael Koryta novel, Angelina Jolie stars as a survival expert in the Montana wilderness who is tasked with protecting a teenager who witnessed a murder, while assassins are pursuing him and a wildfire grows closer.
-Untitled David O. Russell Project: Following the mop epic Joy, that came and went in theaters but still netted a Best Actress nomination for Jennifer Lawrence, the angriest director in Hollywood took a bit of a break (it didn’t help that he tried to do a really expensive show with Amazon starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore that fell apart when the Weinstein exposes sank everything). Now, he’s quickly putting together his return to the days of Oscar love that came with stuff like The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, with a new movie that is set to star Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and Michael B. Jordan. Even though we don’t know many details (some people are saying the movie is called Amsterdam) except for the fact the movie hasn’t started shooting yet, David is a quick guy, so he’ll get it ready for the fall festival circuit. If there’s one thing that David O. Russell knows (apart from avoid getting cancelled for abusing people like Lily Tomlin, Amy Adams and his niece), it’s to make loud actor showcases.
-Untitled Nora Fingscheidt Project: When Bird Box became one of the biggest hits on Netflix history, the streamer decided to keep itself in the Sandra Bullock business. Sandy’s next project for Ted Sarandos is a drama where she plays a woman who is released from prison after serving time for a violent crime, and re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. To get redemption, she searches her younger sister she was forced to leave behind. With the direction of Fingscheidt, who comes from an acclaimed directorial debut with Systemsprenger (Germany’s submission to the last Academy Awards), and a cast that also includes Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal, this will also hopefully try its luck later this year.
-Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project: We don’t know if this movie will be ready for the end of the year (although last time, he managed to sneak Phantom Thread under the buzzer and earn several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture), but PTA is apparently gonna start to shoot it soon, with the backing of Focus Features. After several movies with prestige locations and intricate production design, Film Twitter’s Holy Spirit will go back to the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s, to tell the story of a high school student who is also a successful child actor.
-Stillwater: Tom McCarthy’s recent career is certainly puzzling. After delivering the weird lows of The Cobbler, he bounced back with the Best Picture winner that was Spotlight. And following that, he… helped produce the 13 Reasons Why series. And following that… he made Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, a Disney+ original movie. Now, he’s back to the award race with a drama starring Matt Damon, who plays a father who rushes from Oklahoma to France to help his daughter (Abigail Breslin), who is in prison after being suspected for a murder she claims she didn’t commit.
-West Side Story: To close things, we have to see one of the possible big contenders of the season, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the iconic musical that translates Romeo and Juliet to the context of a street gang war in 1950s New York. While the decision to adapt again something that has been a classic both in Broadway and in movie theaters almost 60 years ago is a challenge, the idea of Spielberg doing a musical closer to the stage version with Tony Kushner as the writer is too tempting for the average Academy voter, who is already saving a spot in major categories in case Steven nails it in December. However, there’s two question marks. First, how well will Ansel Elgort and newcomer Rachel Zegler stand out in the roles of Tony and Maria? And second, will In the Heights steal some of the thunder of this movie by being, you know, more modern?

2020.01.12 18:17 jonisantucho Oscar Watch: Pre-Nomination Edition + Spicy Predictions

Finally, after months of anticipation, rises, falls and more drama, we’re about to reach the moment many expected: the 25th Critics’ Choice Awards. Nah, just kidding. As everybody with stakes in Hollywood knows, Monday morning will bring the Oscar nominations, and we can see a part of the picture after seeing the nods of last week by influential groups like the producers of the PGA, the writers of the WGA, the directors of the DGA and the very white British voters of the BAFTAs.
It’s time to see what films look like locks, which ones will be forgotten by awards junkies after tomorrow, and which ones are in the middle of both sides.
-1917: Sam Mendes came here to play, y’all. Even though the WW1 one-take action drama got shut out of the SAGs, everything turned back around starting with surprising wins at the Golden Globes for Best Director and Best Drama. And the following days followed with a surprising nod for Best Original Screenplay at the WGA, as well as more expected nods like Best Picture at the PGAs and 9 BAFTAs, including Best Picture. Academy voters love war movies and tricky movies, so we can expect a healthy amount of Oscar nominations for this film, starting off with Best Picture and moving to other areas like Best Director, Best Original Score for Thomas “the Glenn Close of music” Newman, Best Cinematography by Film Twitter’s rock stasex god Roger Deakins, Best Sound Editing/Mixing (which will definitely win because of the scientific fact that it’s a loud flick), etc. On top of that, all this praise came at the right time to boost the movie’s opening weekend in the US, with a predicted 37 million dollars 3-day performance that will definitely have enough legs to make this look like a popular pick during voting time. It’s looking like the perfect storm for Universal, which sadly couldn’t score with Cats and has troubles ahead next week with Dolittle (what do you want, nobody told them there was a dragon).
-A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: Tom Hanks got the Golden Globes nomination, the SAG nomination and the BAFTA nomination (as well as Brad Pitt, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino, making 4 of the 5 slots for Best Supporting Actor look like they’re claimed). It looks like this time is the time to end his Oscar nomination drought, but we’ve been fooled before. Still, we’ll bet on Mr. Rogers, even though the Academy forgot about almost everything else in Marielle Heller’s film (and that may also include the script, that luckily got a boost from a WGA nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay). In a fair world, Chris Cooper’s scumbag dad with regrets would have a shot too, but whatever.
-Bombshell: The Vice of 2019 is making it to the finish line, despite the fact that it’s pretty bad and it didn’t score at the box office. It didn’t score with the WGA, the PGA or the DGA, but Jay Roach’s “incisive” film about the harassment scandal at Fox News still has three guaranteed nominations: Charlize Theron’s uncanny Best Actress bait as Megyn Kelly, Margot Robbie’s weird and underdeveloped supporting role, and the guaranteed winner, the really convincing make-up and hairstyling. I have to stop writing about this movie, because I have bad flashbacks (DEEPFAKE CGI BILL O’REILLY, PEOPLE, MY NIGHTMARES).
-Booksmart: Before the tidbits, a little bit of trivia. Did you guys know that Olivia Wilde directed this movie? Shocking, I know. Going to the real news, many people were surprised this week when the script for the high school comedy got recognition by both the WGA and the BAFTAs, which nominated it for Best Original Screenplay. Even though the WGA excluded several movies (more on that later), this plants a seed for a potential shocker on Monday morning, so stay tuned.
-Dolemite Is My Name: It’s a shame, but it’s time to call it quits on the Best Actor campaign for Eddie Murphy. Without the boost of a Golden Globe win or nominations for the SAGs or the BAFTAs, it’s really hard to imagine his portrayal of Rudy Ray Moore in the Top 5 of the toughest category of this year’s Oscars. At least, we’ll get to see him be honored at the Critics’ Choice Awards, and he’ll surely get an Emmy for his hilarious SNL episode. Also, look out for Ruth Carter in Best Costume Design, it might get a nod.
-Ford v Ferrari: Josh Lucas’ stuffy suit is trying to stop it, but James Mangold’s car dad movie is gonna perform well at the technical Oscars, that’s for sure. But going beyond awards like Best Sound Editing or Best Sound Mixing, there’s potential for more. The PGA included FvF amongst the nominees for Best Theatrical Motion Picture, which is a great boost. And we know that people love to vote for Christian Bale, especially when he’s going back and forth between Big Chungus and a vampire victim. So we could potentially see a Best Picture nomination, but it is not a lock.
-Harriet: Cynthia Erivo’s waiting for the answer to one question, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the premiere of The Outsider, only on HBO. The question is this: Is she gonna get one Oscar nomination on Monday, or two? Even though her status in the Best Actress conversation depends on how well Saoirse Ronan, Awkwafina and Lupita Nyong’o perform, it’s virtually guaranteed that the track that she co-wrote for the movie, “Stand Up”, will get a Best Original Song nod. So it’s not wrong for her to start choosing what clothes to wear for Oscar night.
-Hustlers: Jenny From The Block is the only shot for the Lorene Scafaria movie to get an Oscar nod, and sadly the fight for the Best Supporting Actress prize is already lost. While the star-obsessed HFPA chose to not give Jennifer Lopez the award and started the Laura Dern televised speech train, she also missed a BAFTA nomination, although the British voters had their hands tied. What, isn’t it logical to literally give Margot Robbie (I mean, how complex and developed were those roles) AND Scarlett Johansson double nominations before inviting a single woman of color to the ceremony? Oh, wait a minute.
-Jojo Rabbit: Haters gonna hate, and Taika Waititi’s gonna anti-hate with a satire all the way to the Oscars. Even though the critics don’t like it that much and the box office has been underwhelming so far (31 million dollars worldwide for a 14 million dollar prestige production after two months is… meh), the WW2 film about a boy, his imaginary Hitler and the Jew girl in his attic has scored almost every single important nomination to lock a Best Picture nomination: the SAGs, the WGAs, the PGAs and, surprisingly, the DGAs, where Waititi took the spot that some people expected to be filled by Todd Phillips (ugh). Furthermore, the BAFTAs took the SAGs lead and also nominated Scarlett Johansson for Best Supporting Actress, which means the film has some traction in a fundamental area to reach a Best Picture win (you can’t have the BP without some actors, it is known). Between Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, possible Director and Supporting Actress nominations, and below-the-line stuff, you can make a really convincing case for a movie that, as I said last time, it's both edgy enough to get noticed, and safe enough to court old Academy members and apolitical people. That’s a dangerous combo.
-Joker: The Clown Prince of Crime struck again in the awards conversation, and took 11 nominations at the BAFTAs, as well as nominations in the PGAs and the WGAs for Best Adapted Screenplay. Between this, the Joaquin Phoenix bulldozer of Best Actor wins that started at the Golden Globes and a billion dollars, we have another Best Picture nomination locked. We have to see if Todd Phillips can get to Best Director (he got the BAFTA bounce), but noms for Best Original Score (the other Golden Globe win of the night, congrats Hildur) and Best Cinematography are secure. Add some below-the-line stuff, and you have a tempting case to award something about SOCIETY. The only thing that could stop things is Phoenix himself, who is this time actually committed to campaigning, but at the same time clearly gives less of a shit than the rest of the contenders, as seen with his winning speech at the Globes that ended up with him rambling about the contamination of private jets. With more speeches to come, it’ll be interesting to see if he keeps rambling or if Warner’s campaign crew will reign him a little.
-Judy: Speaking of winning campaigns, Renee Zellweger also started her own on the Golden Globes, with a rambling speech that was somehow weirder than the one mentioned before. Even though she’s a lock for Best Actress and she also got a BAFTA nomination, something’s off about the way in which she’s starting to sweep. This isn’t a comeback, she already won before… it really looks like Renee is gonna win an Oscar because everybody feels bad about the time in which the Internet made fun of how she looked. Is this gonna last all the way to February? We don’t know, but if she gets the SAG award, it’s all over.
-Just Mercy: While the Dustin Daniel Cretton legal drama based on true events was practically shut out of awards conversation (although it looks like it’s gonna score some decent digits at the box office), Jamie Foxx is one of several people who is looking for that last spot in the Best Supporting Actor category. Will he make it? The tension is too much to bear.
-Knives Out: While he continues to bathe in his haters’ tears, Rian Johnson is celebrating in several ways with the performance of his whodunnit. After crossing the 250 million dollars barrier the worldwide box office, and confirming that Johnson is starting to work on a sequel, the mystery comedy was nominated by both the PGA and the WGA. This could lead to not only a Best Original Screenplay nod for Rian, but also a Best Picture nomination for the popular flick. Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna eat some donut holes.
-Little Women: While Greta Gerwig can now be sure that her take on the literary classic is making money at the box office, its Oscar prospects look a little more shaky. Yes, the movie got PGA and WGA nominations, and both Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh got nominated for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress at the BAFTAs (although they ignored Gerwig for Director and the movie for Best Picture). But voters are ignoring this movie, and everything that’s not Gerwig’s adapted screenplay or below-the-line stuff doesn’t seem safe for some prognosticators. Still, the backlash for the snubs for female directors at the Golden Globes and other awards could help Gerwig, and a Best Picture nomination is possible, but it’s not a frontrunner or a lock.
-Marriage Story: The other half of the Gerwig-Baumbach duo is also not as strong as we thought a few weeks ago. Outside of the guaranteed Laura Dern win for Best Supporting Actress (that category is LOCKED, people, it’s gonna be a Dern coronation for the next month), the divorce dramedy is just happy to be nominated, stepping back from the frontrunner zone after it suffered the “too early on the front of the pack” problem, which lead to a backlash. Still, even though Baumbach is out of the Best Director conversation, the film scored nominations with the PGA and the WGA, so it’s still gonna get several nominations for Netflix. We’re talking locks for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Original Score. Not too shabby.
-Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: People haven’t forgotten about Quentin Tarantino, and this week proved it. Between the three wins at the Golden Globes (Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt and Best Comedy/Musical), and nominations for the PGA, the DGA and the top prizes at the BAFTAs, everything catapulted the love letter to Los Angeles and the ‘60s to the front of the pack in the Best Picture conversation. Between the locks for Best Picture, Best Actor for Leo, Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt (who is gonna win if nobody shows up in the next week or two, because his speech and his interview with Leo in the WTF podcast were chaaaaaarmiiiiiing), Best Original Screenplay for Quentin (who got shut out of the WGA because he’s not a member), and more, we have a case for a winner. That’s a flick that appeals to the old members of the Academy because of nostalgia and a love for the movies, while also entices younger voters to finally recognize Tarantino with the top prize.
-Pain and Glory: Pedro Almodóvar has been in the past one of the international filmmakers that the Academy remembers, and tomorrow he’ll test if they still know him. While the WGAs (that excluded Pedro because he’s not a member), the DGAs and the PGAs ignored the movie (and the BAFTAs only gave it a nod for Best Foreign Film), Antonio Banderas is a strong possibility for a nomination for Best Actor, and Almodóvar could sneak to a Best Original Screenplay nod. We’ll wait and see.
-Parasite: The Bong Hive is growing in numbers, and it’s safe to say that Bong Joon-ho’s dark satire about capitalism is one of the locked frontrunners for the rest of the Best Picture race. After winning the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film (which led to yet another viral moment for Bong, after he and his translator Sharon Choi delivered a killer line about the one-inch barrier of subtitles), the movie got nominations for the DGAs, the WGAs, the PGAs and the top prizes at the BAFTAs. Coupled with the SAG nominations, the critics awards and a healthy US box office gross that will end up close to 30 million dollars, this is one of the big dogs in the race. Now, the nominations will give us an idea of how beloved this film really is, because people have been talking about a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Song Kang Ho, and Cho Yeo Jeong still has a shot to surprise in the Best Supporting Actress category, a la Marina de Tavira. You can do it, Bong.
-Rocketman: TEN. MONTHS. That’s how long so far Taron Egerton and Elton John have been campaigning for Oscars towards the latter’s musical biopic, starting with a performance that literally took place on the night of the last Academy Awards. Since then, the duo have been sucking up to every single voting member of every single organization, attending every event and making some questionable ones, including when Egerton invited every single member of the HFPA to his birthday, which turned out to be a covert Elton concert.. and Taron’s birthday wasn’t even that day. Well, even though it was desperate, the gambit by them and Paramount is working, because Taron suddenly jumped to grab the edge of the Best Actor category following a win at the Golden Globes for Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy, and a BAFTA nod for Best Actor that adds up to the nod from the SAGs. Taron fought back against an early May release date, the worries of following the success of Bohemian Rhapsody and a stacked competition, while Elton will surely get another Oscar nod with his original song “I’m Gonna Love Me Again”, which also won a Globe. I guess that’s why they call it the blues, indeed (?)
-The Farewell: Every year, there’s a Sundance movie that everybody loves and hypes up and waits for it to get nominated for several Oscars, and then nothing happens. This could happen with Lulu Wang’s culture clash dramedy, which didn’t get nominated for the PGAs, or the WGAs (although that had more to do with the fact that Lulu isn’t a member of the guild, so her movie’s original screenplay was excluded), or the DGAs, or the BAFTAs (apart from Best Foreign Language Film). Awkwafina helped to build some hope with a win at the Golden Globes for Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy, but there’s this awful feeling about the last spot of the Best Actress category, which basically became a fight between women of color while people like Renee Zellweger and Charlize Theron (which, come on, those two performances do not deserve it) are comfortably safe. Zhao Shuzhen could also get snubbed for Best Supporting Actress, because she’s not hitting the important nominations. So, this movie could get 3 nominations, or nothing. To quote the following movie, it is what it is.
-The Irishman: After all the hype, the discourse and the nominations, Martin Scorsese’s farewell to gangsters is another lock for Best Picture, with this week bringing nominations for the DGAs, the WGAs, the PGAs and the top prizes at the BAFTAs. But even though this sounds encouraging, it’s fair to say that Marty’s movie has slowed down in the race, and it didn’t help that it didn’t win anything at the Golden Globes. Also, it seems like Robert De Niro is not gonna make it to the Best Actor category, so that’s a big sign of how things are not as high as it seemed a month ago. Still, this is gonna be one of the most nominated movies of this year’s ceremony, so Scorsese could still paint houses all the way to a victory, if older Academy voters don’t split the votes between this, OUATIH and 1917.
-The Lighthouse: Willem Dafoe is getting farther away from the last spot in Best Supporting Actor, but the film could still make the Best Cinematography category. A BAFTA nomination helps the case.
-The Two Popes: You have to look out for those popes, because they are a wild card. They didn’t win at the Globes, or get nominated for the PGAs, the WGAs or the DGAs, but they still scored BAFTA nominations for Jonathan Pryce, Anthony Hopkins and the script from Anthony McCarten. This is a movie that 5 or 6 years ago would have definitely scored a Best Picture nomination, but this year is less certain. Still, it hangs on at the edges of several categories, while McCarten’s adapted screenplay is more likely to get nominated.
-Uncut Gems: I can’t make a joke about this movie because I have to wait like a chump until it releases on Netflix on the 31st, but I can say that Adam Sandler’s touch at the box office is helping a lot to make the Safdie bros’ thriller stay in the conversation. While the movie is set to become the highest grossing A24 movie in the US, Sandler’s still making the rounds, collecting critics prizes, being charming. A Best Actor nomination could still be the big shock to end all shocks on Monday morning.
-Us: Lupita Nyong’o is hanging on to the Best Actress category, assisting to every event, showing up to every interview. She’s more known and better regarded than Awkwafina, and people know and like her movie more than Cynthia Erivo’s. After the SAG nomination, will it end up in an Oscar nod? It’s not certain, but I personally bet that she gets the last spot. We still have to see what kind of shocks come tomorrow.
Technical(ly) contenders: Ad Astra, Avengers: Endgame, Downton Abbey, The Lighthouse.
Check the pulse: Just Mercy.
This had Oscar buzz: Seberg, The Laundromat, The Goldfinch, Lucy in the Sky, Motherless Brooklyn, The Aeronauts, The Report, Cats, Queen and Slim, Dark Waters, Waves, The King, Honey Boy.
And now, before the end, some predictions of my own for the nominations in several categories. Feel free to add your own.

2019.12.31 02:23 jonisantucho Oscar Watch: End of 2019 Edition

While we say goodbye to another year, the race for the Oscars is going full throttle as the following week starts to reveal the industry's real ideas about the best films of 2019. Let's take a good look at the important dates at the calendar coming up:
Friday, January 3 – American Society of Cinematographers Nominations
Sunday, January 5 – Golden Globes
Monday, January 6 – WGA (Writers Guild) Nominations
Tuesday, January 7 – BAFTA Nominations
Also on Tuesday, January 7 – DGA (Directors Guild) Nominations
Another thing on Tuesday, January 7 – PGA (Producers Guild) Nominations
Oh, I almost forgot, ALSO on Tuesday, January 7 - The Oscar nomination voting closes
Now, some context for the non-awards nerds. When we want to see ahead of time which films are the favourites in the awards race, we tend to look at the precedents of the powerful trifecta of members of the Academy that is made up of the PGA (producers), the DGA (directors), and the WGA (writers), as well as the SAGs, because some of its actor members are part of the largest branch of voters. If a film has the support of all or most of these guilds (and the support of all five boroughs), a Best Picture nomination is guaranteed. Also, we have to pay attention to what the British members of the Academy have to say with the BAFTA nominations, which always bring forward some clear views on what's getting in.
And finally, the Golden Globes. Sure, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a joke made up of dozens of foreign journalists that vote according to which famous people they can get to show up to their parties, but there is still some influence in this ceremony. If you or your movie can win at the Golden Globes, you have a shot at the best kind of publicity in these times: a memorable (and viral) speech. Let's take a look at a good example from a couple of months ago. When we were discussing the previous Best Actress race, it was a one-on-one race between the unrecognized Wife herself, Glenn Close, and the breakout popstar-turned-actress, Lady Gaga. While Close beat Gaga for the Drama Actress award during the Globes, the Comedy Actress award went to the underdog favourite Olivia Colman, who didn't have time to campaign because she was busy filming The Crown. Her speech was the only big campaign moment in an awards season that otherwise was dominated by the other two, but it was memorable enough to keep her in the race. And when she won, it wasn't a total shock. Also, let's not forget that last year, the Globes sadly also predicted the two unlikely big winners of the Oscars, Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody (barf).
But enough about the Ricky Gervais show. Let's see how the contenders are doing.
-1917: Sam Mendes' WW1 one-take action drama has just started its limited release, and while the early numbers are promising before its wide release on January 10, the important thing is that people are aware of this movie as an impressive technical contender. It doesn't matter that it didn't gather SAG nominations, because both the Critics Choice Awards and the Golden Globes showered the movie with nods, and people are very aware of Mendes' directing, Roger Deakins' complicated cinematography, and Thomas Newman's emotional score. If we add up this awareness with the technical nods that it will bag (let's be honest, we already know that this movie will win both Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, because it's loud), we have a Best Picture nomination coming right up.
-A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: While the chances for almost anything else have faded away for Marielle Heller's take on the power of Mr. Rogers, it looks like this movie could finally end Tom Hanks' curse that has affected him after Cast Away. He has secured nods for the Critics Choice, the Golden Globes and the SAGs, so everything looks like he is set in stone for an Oscar nod after almost two decades. But the past has taught us that anything could happen that derails his shot.
-Bombshell: The critics are mixed on this movie, and the box office has been a little bit disappointing, but the Fox News expose by Jay Roach still has one ace up its sleeve, and it's that its a performance movie. Both the Golden Globes and the SAGs rewarded Charlize Theron's turn as Megyn Kelly and Margot Robbie's composite victim of sexual harassment, with the second of those two awardfests also nominating Nicole Kidman's portrayal of Gretchen Carlson, as well as the whole ensemble cast. While it's hard to see the movie being a financial hit (it's hard to make back a 32 million dollar budget with a movie that republicans won't see because it criticizes their news source, while democrats won't see it because it's better to see the End of Days than a movie with Megyn Kelly as the hero), multiple Oscar nominations (Theron, Robbie, the make-up) are guaranteed. And who knows, because in the next few days Charlize could even steal Renee Zellweger's thunder.
-Cats: Oh, poor Cats. It has become the punchline of the Internet, it's gonna lose at the very least 71 million dollars, and it even lost its best shot at an Oscar. While the unfinished, unpatched VFX of Tom Hooper's unforgettable take on Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical somehow got shortlisted for the Oscars (YOU COULD SEE JUDI DENCH'S FREAKING WEDDING RING, AND THEY STILL PUT IT BEFORE AD ASTRA, WTF), a different fate happened to "Beautiful Ghosts", ALW and Taylor Swift's original song written almost exclusively for awards. It's very likely that this movie doesn't get nominated at all, to which I say that we drown our sorrows with a glass of MIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLKKKKKKK.
-Dark Waters: What happens when a muted, dark movie by Todd Haynes crashes at the last minute in a rushed award season after skipping every single festival? A failed wide expansion at the box office and zero award precedents. Better luck next time, Mark Ruffalo.
-Dolemite Is My Name: Eddie Murphy still holds on to the Best Actor race, and he still has a shot, as you could check with his nominations for both the Critics Choice and the Golden Globes. While he didn't get to the SAGs, he still got a great campaigning spot when he showed up to host the Christmas episode of Saturday Night Live, which, if you haven't seen it, also was the best SNL episode in years. Even if he doesn't get nominated for an Oscar, you can be sure that he will win an Emmy next year, because he was so unbelievably funny again.
-Ford v Ferrari: James Mangold's ultimate dad movie is making a place for itself in the awards season because of two factors. One is obviously the technical side, which comes in handy into the narrative of the throwback to the adult dramas about manly men who beat the odds and built a future. On the other hand, Christian Bale has been surprisingly planting a flag all over the Best Actor precursors, showing up in both the Golden Globes and the SAGs. People like to nominate Bale when he shifts from chubby to skinny, it's a fact. Let's see if this leads him and the movie towards Oscar night.
-Harriet: Cynthia Erivo has been hitting every necessary step, with nominations for Best Actress in the Critics Choice, the Golden Globes and the SAGs. But her status could be in danger, because of another black actress on the rise (yes, I know, it's fucked up that we already know that two black actresses won't get in the same category). Even then, if she doesn't get Best Actress, she still has a shot for Best Original Song, because "Stand Up", the track that she co-wrote for the Kasi Lemmons biopic, has been shortlisted for that category.
-Honey Boy: The Shia LaBeouf comeback has to keep building itself, because this movie has been ignored by the big awards, and also the audience. Kudos to Alma Har'el for calling out the industry's bullshit towards female-directed movies during award season, though.
-Hustlers: Speaking of, Lorene Scafaria's stripper caper hasn't been recognized so far outside of Jennifer Lopez's supporting performance, which by this point is guaranteed to get nominated for an Oscar. At least this movie has the luxury of a long life thanks to its big box office success and the rewards of time.
-Jojo Rabbit: While Taika Waititi's WW2 dramedy didn't make a big splash with critics or audiences, the industry has been kind to Jojo, with Best Picture nominations in the Critics Choice and the Golden Globes, as well as a Best Ensemble nod at the SAGs (which is their equivalent to BP). Another funny thing that happened with the SAG nominations is that Scarlett Johansson got an unexpected second nomination thanks to her supporting turn in this movie, which could also repeat itself during the Oscars. If we add up Adapted Screenplay, Johansson's possible second nod, and the below-the-line nods, we have a recipe for a Best Picture nomination. All thanks to a movie that's both edgy enough to get noticed, and safe enough to court old Academy members and apolitical people.
-Joker: Todd Phillips' take on the Clown Prince of Crime is still making waves, courting Best Picture nods in the Critics Choice and the Golden Globes. Of course, Joaquin Phoenix is a lock in every Best Actor category of every award show, so now we have to wait and see if his winning streak with the industry starts to grow, because the critics had another man in mind during their awards.
-Judy: We've been talking about it for months, she has been nominated for every single Best Actress prize in the horizon, and next Sunday we see if the sweep begins for Renee Zellweger. But there's also a chance that the overlong frontrunner effect takes over, and people start looking for other performances. "Yes, Renee is Judy, we know, but have you seen how Charlize becomes Megyn?" seems to be the talk of the town during the last few weeks, and it doesn't help that the critics pointed towards other contender. The "person becomes another person" can be a double-edged sword.
-Just Mercy: Just when we thought that this movie was out, Jamie Foxx surprises with a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the SAGs. Now it's a good time to mention the category and how, while Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Tom Hanks seem like locks, the fifth spot is an unsolved mystery. Foxx is the only shot left for Dustin Cretton's legal drama based on real events, and he's still campaigning to get in that hole.
-Knives Out: It must feel good to be Rian Johnson this week. On one hand, the Star Wars sequel that backtracked and criticized most of the movie that you made is disappointing in both reviews and box office. On the other hand, your critically acclaimed original whodunnit just crossed 200 million dollars worldwide. And while Benoit Blanc keeps making bank, the movie has also been getting love from the Golden Globes, which gave it nods for Best Musical or Comedy, as well as nods for Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas. Rian Johnson's chances for a Best Original Screenplay nomination are growing, and the WGA coupled with a possible PGA nomination could even lead to a Best Picture spot at the Oscars.
-Little Women: Boy, did this movie’s trajectory prove that nothing’s guaranteed in the race. Both the Globes and the SAGs ignored Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of the classic novel that most people misquote thanks to Moe, and there’s been some controversy that both helps and hinders the writedirector. First, people rallied around Gerwig after being snubbed everywhere outside of the Critics Choice, with the Golden Globes being rightfully questioned because of its gender bias against female-directed stories. But then, some other people questioned why, in a year with great films by Mati Diop, Lulu Wang, Celine Sciamma, Lorene Scafaria, Jennifer Kent and more, all the support went to the white NY director. While Gerwig’s stock will drop if she keeps making movies starring white people (yeah, I know, that debate is for another time), she can rest behind the support of the audiences, which flocked during Christmas for a 29 million dollar opening weekend. If the movie has legs, it could have a chance for certain categories, including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score for Alexandre Desplat. Other nods (like Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan, Best Supporting Actress for Florence Pugh, and Best Picture) are up in the air.
-Marriage Story: Moving to the other half of Film Twitter’s favorite couple, Noah Baumbach’s divorce dramedy went through all the highs and lows of being in the spotlight after being nominated for every top award and releasing on Netflix. After all the initial praise and chatter, something happened: the backlash. Faster than you could make a meme about Adam Driver punching a wall, it began. Suddenly, from one day to the other, you had Joe Schmoe commenting on a tweet of a clip of the argument scene, saying that he “could have done better acting than that unrealistic scene”, or Barry Shitpeas complaining about how the kid was annoying. We have to consider the fact that the Netflix release is a brand new world for Oscar contenders (Roma didn’t suffer this, I think, because most people saw that it was a Mexican period drama in black and white and just said “pass”), as we saw a few weeks before with The Irishman. Still, Adam Driver, ScarJo and Laura Dern are locks, as well as Noah’s original screenplay. But the “Is that it?” factor could prove fatal in the next weeks.
-Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: It’s kinda bittersweet to think that Quentin Tarantino’s closest shot to the Oscar is really moving forward because it appeals to the old “power of da moviesh” crowd. Anyways, next week we’ll see how the industry starts to reward the love letter to the ‘60s in Tinsel Town, because the coast is clear for the movie to win Best Musical/Comedy at the Golden Globes, and Leo must be already rehearsing his Best Actor speech. The SAGs also showered Leo, Brad and the ensemble with nods, so that could be a decisive step going forward if people haven’t forgotten about the July release.
-Pain and Glory: While everybody talks about Adam Driver vs. Joaquin Phoenix, Antonio Banderas has been carefully building support for his masterful turn in Pedro Almodóvar’s self-reflective drama. Antonio won Best Actor with both the New York and Los Angeles critics (by the way, the only two cities with critics organizations that really have influence, because this year every freakin’ town in America now had a critics group trying to get attention with their announcements), and also bagged nods for the Critics Choice and the Golden Globes for Drama. While Banderas is in a quiet third place in the Best Actor race and the film is guaranteed to get into the Best International Film categories, it remains to be seen if Pedro’s original screenplay gets nommed. We can’t look forward to the WGAs to clear this up, because this film is excluded from being nominated due to the fact that Almodóvar is also not a member (other films excluded include Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Farewell).
-Parasite: The Bong Hive keeps rising, and it’s undeniable that Bong Joon-ho’s class warfare satire will be a big player in the Best Picture conversation. It has dominated every Best Foreign Film, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director nomination, and the critics in both NY and LA awarded it, with LAFCA giving it Best Picture. The movie has passed the 20 million dollar benchmark in the US, which made it enter in the Top 10 of the highest grossing foreign films in the country’s history (worldwide, it’s about to pass 130 millions). And while some people compared it to Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma to say that it would run out of fuel without Netflix money, the shock of all shocks happened when Parasite got nominated for Best Ensemble at the SAGs. To put that in context, it’s the second time that a foreign movie got that nomination. The previous one? Life is Beautiful, that ended up with a bunch of Oscar nods (including Best Picture), and gave Roberto Benigni a Best Actor win that we still don’t know if it’s delightful or just plain annoying. It’s clear that the average Academy member likes Parasite better than Roma, and it’s obvious why: it’s more entertaining and accessible, and while the story is rooted in Korean culture, the takedown of capitalism makes it have a global perspective about issues that affect everybody. Now, we have to see if Bong can jump over Tarantino and Scorsese in the next weeks.
-Richard Jewell: Well, Clint happened. After a last minute release that had the advantage of old Academy members saving a spot for The Man With No Name, the biopic about the sad tale of the security guard falsely accused of being a bomber opened to just positive reviews, and then suffered a shockingly low opening weekend of 4.7 million dollars, becoming the worst wide opening of Eastwood’s career (and making things more painful, the movie cost 45 millions). Why did this happen? We can point fingers to the big controversy regarding Olivia Wilde’s portrayal of journalist Kathy Scruggs, who sadly passed away before this movie accused her of being a succubus who traded sex for false tips that ruined Jewell’s life. It didn’t help that Olivia Wilde’s excuses and screenwriter Billy Ray’s conspiracy claims came out to clear nothing. In reality, I believe that what happened has a few more factors. First things first, this movie didn’t star movie draw Clint Eastwood, it starred Paul Walter Hauser, a guy who’s barely known for playing supporting dumb stooges in recent dramedies and Cobra Kai. Second of all, while Clint had success with recent real life stories like Sully (which, again, starred movie star Tom Hanks), Richard Jewell asks people to remember one of the big American news stories from… 1996. And then, finally, we can say that this movie made left-leaning people stay at home between Clint’s attitude and the Kathy Scruggs controversy, while right-leaning people didn’t get the kick out of “owning the libs” that would have been buying tickets for this. Now, the only shot that Jewell has is a far chance for Kathy Bates to get a Best Supporting Actress nomination, but only the Golden Globes back that up.
-Rocketman: We all expected the Golden Globe nominations for the Elton John biopic, Taron Egerton's performance and its original song "I'm Gonna Love Me Again" (that has been shortlisted for the Oscars). But it was a pleasant surprise to see Egerton between the five people nominated for Best Actor at the SAGs, and it seems that his campaigning could pay off if he upsets Leo DiCaprio at the Globes.
-The Farewell: If there’s a movie that could end up with either several celebrations or absolutely nothing on Oscar nominations morning, it’s the Lulu Wang dramedy based on her family. While Awkwafina has been nominated for Best Actress in both the Golden Globes (which also gave a nod for Best Foreign Language Film, because of dumb rules) and the Critics Choice, the SAGs ignored her, which is concerning in a category where the only people that feel safe are white actresses. Also, Zhao Shuzhen has been ignored by most of the industry awards, so her status is also shaky. Going forward, it looks like Awkwafina has a clear win ahead of her in the Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy category in the Globes, but the HFPA could very easily go “HPFA mode” (which means, some random bullshit like giving the award to Cate Blanchett for Where’d You Go, Bernadette?).
-The Irishman: After all the memes and the debate about the length of Martin Scorsese’s last gangster epic, the film has established somewhat of a frontrunner status by being nominated for every single awards show and obviously winning Best Film with NYFCC. Furthermore, both Joe Pesci (a critics darling) and Al Pacino seem like locks for Best Supporting Actor, and Marty and Thelma Schoonmaker are circling the top of Best Director and Best Editing, respectively. But then, there’s a question mark: Robert De Niro. Up until a few weeks ago, he seemed like a lock for Best Actor, but then he missed the Globes. And after that, he missed the SAGs. Sure, the SAGs are also awarding him with a Lifetime Achievement prize during the ceremony, so he’ll still campaign there, but something’s off and could cause chaos in the Best Actor category. It is what it is.
-The Lighthouse: It seems more and more likely that the only Oscar nomination for Robert Eggers’ cabin fever nightmare will go towards Jarin Blaschske’s cinematography, because Willem Dafoe’s “supporting” turn wasn’t recognized by the Golden Globes or the SAGs. Dammit, I wanted the Dafoe streak to keep going.
-The Report: Hey, Annette Bening got a Golden Globe nomination! That's likely going to be the only thing that most people remember about this movie that is waiting for you right now in Amazon, sadly.
-The Two Popes: Those silly popes, they’re eatin’ da pizza and watching fútbol. Yes, the papal dramedy by Fernando Meirelles is out to the world on Netflix, and we see why old people like this movie. However, the industry is mixed on the awards for this flick, because only the Golden Globes showered the whole movie, with nods to the film, Jonathan Pryce, Anthony Hopkins and modern Mephisto himself, screenwriter Anthony McCarten. It remains to be seen if this tickles the old Academy’s taste, but it’s just outside of the big categories, waiting to strike.
-Uncut Gems: The Sandman is back on the big screen, and he’s still a draw. During the wide release of his first theatrical live action movie since Pixels (ugh), Adam Sandler helped the Safdie bros’ new thriller to reach an 18 million dollars 5-day opening weekend, which is a record high opening for distributor A24. Even though Sandler didn’t get love from the Globes or the SAGs, he still is an underdog choice that got the support of the critics (and Critics Choice nods). Now that he has box office to back that up, he still has a small shot. Meanwhile, all of us suckers that live away from the US have to wait to January 31st, when Netflix releases this movie worldwide.
-Us: The efforts by Lupita Nyong'o to position herself in the Best Actress race have been working, because her double performance in Jordan Peele's thriller have been recognized by both the critics awards (she got the Best Actress award of the NYFCC, and the runner-up spot for LAFCA) and the SAGs. She is the dark horse candidate in the category, and I'm personally rooting for her.
-Waves: Trey Edward Shults' family drama got shut out of every major award this season, and it disappointed at the box office, so unless the new class in the Academy surprises us with Sterling K. Brown or Taylor Russell in the supporting categories, this is it for the A24 release.
Technical(ly) contenders: Ad Astra, Avengers: Endgame, Downton Abbey, The Lighthouse.
Check the pulse: Just Mercy.
This had Oscar buzz: Seberg, The Laundromat, The Goldfinch, Lucy in the Sky, Motherless Brooklyn, The Aeronauts, The Report, Cats, Queen and Slim, Dark Waters, Waves, The King, Honey Boy.
Closing question: Will Portrait of a Lady on Fire surprise us in the morning of Oscar nominations?

2019.09.16 05:18 The-Cynicist My Top ten most anticipated horror films upcoming 2019 and early 2020

I want to preface this by saying I'm not sure if this is something people usually post here on Dreadit. Hopefully this isn't against any rules that I'm unaware of.
With 2019 quickly approaching a close, it’s time to look forward to what the rest of this year has to offer and what 2020 has in store. This list is just my personal top 10 of new horror that I’m excited about, but I'd love to hear any of your thoughts and Top 10's in the comments. The list is in order of the estimated release date via IMDb, so they are subject to change, otherwise they’re in no particular order of favoritism. Also, as much as I’d love to be a smartass and include Cats on this list, I’ll refrain. Without further ado, here are my Top 10 Most Anticipated Horror movies of 2019 and the first half of 2020:
Doctor Sleep (Nov. 8th) – The nearly four decades in the making sequel to Stanely Kubrick’s The Shining movie adaptation. This puts yet another Stephen King powerhouse into the cinemas for 2019 and despite really not knowing much about Doctor Sleep, the trailers have me excited. No less, it’s directed by Mike Flanagan who absolutely killed it with last year’s The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. I’ll be interested to see where some of his directorial influence from Hill House comes into play for this one.
The Lodge (Nov. 15th) – Speaking of The Shining, this one has me a little curious and seems to be somewhat inspired by the 1980 classic. Directed by two relative newcomers to the scene, it looks like this one might have some potential. The most prominent actors of the trailer being Jaeden Martell (who played young Bill Denbrough in IT 2017 and 2019) and Alicia Silverstone, it looks like it’s going to be a tense ride with a few twists and turns along the way.
Black Christmas (Dec. 13th) – This is the new generational remake of the 1974 Black Christmas but the trailers are promising. Having recently done a review on I’m Just F\cking With You, it was interesting to see that Sophia Takal directed one of Hulu’s *Into the Dark segments, New Year, New You. That being said, the real thing that caught my attention was Cary Elwes (who was most recently in Stranger Things Season 3) and I can’t help but love him in pretty much any horror flick that he does – I knew it was Dr. Gordon all along! I don’t see this one breaking any new ground, but it’ll likely stand out in an otherwise horror-absent month of the year.
Grudge (Jan. 3rd) – I know, I know, another remake. I guess there’s just a special, nostalgic place in my heart for the American remakes of Japanese horrors, as long as we can still recognize the originals. I might also add that one of the writers worked alongside Clive Barker for The Midnight Meat Train, which was surprisingly good. I’m not sure what capacity John Cho is involved, but he definitely showed his chops for the genre with Searching. Just as well, Lin Shaye of the Insidious franchise is involved which to me is always a good thing. I think this one has enough power behind it that it may just break the bad track record of remakes.
The Turning (Jan. 24th) – The interesting part about this one for me is that it’s said to be based on Henry James’ novella “The Turning of the Screw” which is also the source inspiration for the upcoming Haunting season The Haunting of Bly Manor. I don’t know too much else about the novella itself or the direction this movie will be taking, but it’ll be neat to be able to compare the two against each other and see who did it better. Notable to me is Finn Wolfhard’s involvement (hey I told you this kid was destined for great things!) of Stranger Things and IT (2017 & 2019).
The Invisible Man (March 13th) – I’m curious to know if this is still part of Universal’s attempt to revive all of their horror classics, which is what The Mummy (2017) was trying to do apparently. If so, I think they chose the right man for the job, Leigh Whannell; one of the minds responsible for Saw (the good one) and most recently Upgrade; which I’ve heard is a good movie but I haven’t seen yet! A couple notable faces involved with this project are Elisabeth Moss (A Handmaid’s Tale, Us) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Haunting of Hill House). I’m all about bringing back the classics to the modern era and I’ll be keeping an eye on this one, holding out hope that it does better than The Mummy.
A Quiet Place 2 (March 20th) – Jim… er… John Krasinski is back in the director’s chair for a sequel to the surprise hit of 2018. Normally when there’s a whole lot of hype around a movie I hesitate to get on board, but I was pleasantly surprised after having watched A Quiet Place. I’m a bit more excited this time around having seen what Krasinski can do, and even more so after hearing that Cillian Murphy will be involved (28 Days Later, Sunshine). The current, supposed plot is that it will take place essentially during the same time as the first movie, just in a different location following different characters. I’m anxious to see what fresh material they can bring to this world and how it might tie in with the first.
The New Mutants (April 3rd) – This has been hanging out there for awhile and I keep seeing the date getting bumped back. I’m not sure if this is due to the Fox/Disney acquisition and complications involved with it, or what. Either way, there’s a trailer and I love the fresh take it’s putting on the superhero universe with a more horror-esque approach. There’s lots of recognizable faces involved with the project but probably only a couple you might know by name like Antonio Banderas and Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones). I’m hoping this is the final decided date of release and that we’ll be seeing it early 2020.
Saw Project (May 8th) – The first time I heard about this I think I gagged a little bit, especially hearing Chris Rock involved with writing it. Then I took a second to think about it and thought, “this is so fucking crazy and out there, that it just might work”. I remember the original perception of Jordan Peele moving into the scarier side of things wasn’t well received, and that’s what makes me hesitate to judge this before it even has a chance. Sure, the world doesn’t need another Saw movie but with Samuel L. Jackson on the bill I’m just flat out intrigued. Also worth noting is the directorial return of Darren Lynn Bousman who directed Saw II-IV (which if we’re being honest were at least still in the spirit of the original). So far, I don’t see Tobin Bell on the casting list, which is a little disappointing but might be crucial for rebooting a dead franchise.
Candyman (June 12th) – According to the current synopsis, a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 original Candyman film. It’s great to see Jordan Peele onboard as a writer after having seen what he can deliver with Us. Tony Todd, who is back to play the Candyman, even gave his blessing of Peele’s involvement in an interview. The only other real notable name I was able to spot for this was Colman Domingo of Fear the Walking Dead. It’s good to see franchises that have gone by the wayside make their way back into the mainstream and get a modern take. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ll do with this one.

2019.08.21 20:48 acidpuckish What do you guys think about young girls (20 somethings) that enter a relationship with someone much much much older like a 60 YO guy?

My uncle is 60 and he only dates girls that are the same age as his daughter (she's 20) he says he'll never date women above 30 cause they are old and not that sexy anymore, he's pretty fucking rich I mean like rich as hell and he's not handsome like George Clooney or Antonio Banderas, he's a slightly better and much taller version of Danny DeVito. So why de fuck Young girls date him? Like yeah for his money of course but like they accept having sex with this old guy just so they can sleep in his luxurious apartment and drink good champagne? Why would someone do this to themselves???

Hey y'all, So I was lurking on the raised by narcissists forum and similaabuse-related ones on Reddit. Today and over the past few weeks or so, I've been having flashbacks about sexual abuse with my father. He is a sexual predator and sexually abused three of his sister's. I don't doubt that he overtly molested me as well. I've been remembering some more "covert" things he's done over the years, in regards to sexual abuse.
A few weeks ago, I was doing some bilateral stimulation stuff at home on YouTube (not fully EMDR and can be dangerous to do without a professional or when alone and I am searching for an EMDR therapist now). Do not recommend or do this without a certified/medical professional. That night, I began to have some crazy dreams. I was in a carpeted room and we were sitting on bean bag chairs/couches and there was a white heavy door. Seemed to be a combination of the bean bag chair I had in the basement when my mom and dad lived together, and the white door of the home I grew up in with Mom/stepdad?
Paternal grandparents house had a similar door as well, in the bedroom I stayed in, when I went to visit them. It was always really loud and creaky and that room always freaked me out as sometimes it would break towards me loudly when open at night. I can recall the clock ticking loudly and the door slowly creaking towards me. I felt I was being watched/paranormal. Bio dad said it always made him uncomfortable as well.
The house I was in with my mom had a weird vibe as well. Months after my mom left my dad, I was half asleep and saw a shadow man walking around the room, I could hear footsteps. I was sleeping in bed with Mom and it was a thunderstorm. It was very dark and the man kept shifting into a scary monster at the foot of the bed. I felt terrified, but mom stayed asleep and it was nothing.
I know it happened before I was 3 1/2. I'm not sure what it symbolized, but it was very dark. When I was still talking to my dad, I told him years later and he recalled seeing "shadow people" when he was living there and had a weird feeling about the home too. Our house was built on property of a potato farm up on Long Island and most of the property in the neighborhood probably was as well. It always freaked me out, but yeah.
Now I'm terrified of the dark as an adult and have trouble going to sleep. I got a really bad feeling about the old house and grandparents bedroom. I know something bad happened in there. Maybe also, when my parents tried to split up, mom claimed dad tried to let himself back into the house and she was scared he was going to take me. I think it was at night time.
He was very violent, abusive towards her, and on a lot of drugs and alcohol. He was in crack and begging her to get back together with him and take him back, but she said no. He tried to kill her and he used to threaten to come down to where I was with Mom and stepdad and break my neck for taking back. I was a kid or teen by this time.
He was sober from drugs, but not alcohol/pot which he mixed together and became very mean. But yes, I have a weird feeling somethimg from 4-6 happened in NJ (stepdad abused em and another relative through adulthood). Or perhaps in tht room in NY? Uncle another relatives, even mom were definitely involved in sexual abuse. I'm realizing my mom was at least a part of covert incest separately.
So yeah, sorry this is all over the place. I had a weird dream, being with my dad in a room with the heavy, white door, either on black bean bag chaicouches/recliner. Sometimes he's alone or with friends. Sometimes I'm in there with him. But I can recall that heavy door and feeling very slimy, uncomfortable. There was a weird/dark/sexual energy. One time, there was a man with dark hair standing/sitting with him and they were talking. I was looking from the outside. I can recall a few of his other apartments had white, heavy doors as well. I keep doubting myself, but I know there was sexual abuse involved
I can recall when I was visiting him, he had a picture of Gwen Stefani on a Rolling Stone Magazine cover. She had an obvious red thong peeking it over her cargo shorts. He was obsessed with her and his friend gave it to him and posted it on the door as a joke. I think I was adolescent/teens at this time, maybe young adult? The very last one I saw him (two years ago, I'm 27 now), we watched a movie at his place. He sat on a chair and I laid in his bed.
He was obsessed with watching movies so we did that after lunch. It was a romantic comedy that he loved and Jennifer Lawrence was in it. At one point she was topless, swimming naked. I'm not sure if you could see everything, but it was nude and I'm sure there was a sex scene in there. He kept saying how much he lived the movie and how he wants a woman like her someday, but how he doesn't like Leo's.
I remember in my teens, him and his girlfriend would play movies with sex scenes in them and I would be sitting in the room with them. I recall feeling violated and embarrassed, but guilty for my arousal at the movie. Even when I was a child, they carelessly left an Antonio Banderas movie with a sex scene on and I got upset/scared cuz I didn't understand him rolling around naked with the actress and I didn't understand what sex was. They didn't seem to get it. Even a movie him and I saw in the theater (Noah's Ark) had a sex scene in it.
He would say I was seductive as a child and a flirt. Made comments about my breasts, "bisexual energy", how I was "hot", how my vagina looked just like my mom's when he was changing my diaper, how he wished he could date someone like me, how people probably thought we were dating, obsession about details of my sex life, losing my virginity, and whether my best female friend and I had fooled around yet, being a seductive toddler for answering the door naked, details about sex life with my mom, etc. So gross and he would invalidate me for being emotional on my period, etc. He would objectify other women in front of me and overshare about his dating life/talk about other women's butts that he liked. He got upset when I told him I might be gay and he said, "This isn't what I wanted for you. I (huge emphasis) think you're bisexual. When I was more religious, I wanted to wait until marriage. He said, "Most men won't do it, you gotta try the cow before you purchase the farm and guys won't like it if you're in an open relationship cuz they're possessive and men don't like sharing." (I mentioned how my boyfriend back then and I were considering an open relationship to let me have an experience/explore my bisexuality.
My mom left him after he admitted abusing his sister's, but continued to leave me alone with him for visits and lied to me about it. My heart sunk when I was reading about covert incest online and about watching the sexual/romantic movies with their children. That, combined with him comparing my vagina to my mom's while changing my diaper in front of her and her siblings, saying he wish he could date somebody like me, being obsessed with whether I slept with my best female friend yet, my hot friends and ex boyfriends mom he wished he could date, and everything just inappropriate and predatory. I thought I was rubbing his feet and back out of live, but now I just feel exploited and super depressed. Is it normal to feel this way about flashbacks and how do I know if this is real or if I'm just making it up in my head? Thank you for reading and letting me share.
Edit, added some info as it's coming back to me:
When going to visit my dad, I recall often feeling he was watching me in the shower as well. I liked to take my time and he would stand very close in front of the locked door and ask if I was okay in there. Jokingly kissing my neck while we were sitting on the couch (we were both fully clothed) and saying it was Italian kisses and that him and his family members did it growing up (were msotly Irish descended and UK, no Italian). And I told him to was an errogenous zone and told him to stop. I mispronounced the word and he made fun of me and corrected me. I was a junior or senior at this time in high school. I also have more disturbing nightmares. One (not reoccuring) where I'm wearing a white outfit with a white hat. I'm a toddler, and he's saying dirty things to me and putting his hand up my back in my white outfit. We're outside in our old yard by the pool and it's summertime. Maybe it's why I've been feeling depressed during the summer, although I usually love it? and a reoccuring vision I have as an infant/toddler and it seems to be him. He's leaning over me in white sweats and I can see his face. I think he molested me in the basement Mom said he used to take me down there with him, while he smoked cigarettes alone. I feel like when you're so used to the gaslighting and not wanting to blame the wrong person when the details are jumbled and messy. I just had a weird flashback right now trying to think about my grandparents guest bedroom and got a very sad/abused feeling/something off. Was definitely 4-6. Also, I just noticed something weird. My bedroom door is broken at my own place and won't close all the way (landlord needs to fix it). Not a heavy door, but it's white and I have to leave it creaked open, because I can't lock it. It reminds me so much of my creepy uncle's bathroom, guest bedroom and house doors as well. It was his and mom's childhood home and the locks don't work properly, or didn't a few years ago. That may, well I think, ta a huge reason why night terrors have been worse. And the white door similarity tells a lot. Here's some more stuff that's come up, so thank you for letting me share.

Hey y'all, So I was lurking on the raised by narcissists forum and similaabuse-related ones on Reddit. Today and over the past few weeks or so, I've been having flashbacks about sexual abuse with my father. He is a sexual predator and sexually abused three of his sister's. I don't doubt that he overtly molested me as well. I've been remembering some more "covert" things he's done over the years, in regards to sexual abuse.
A few weeks ago, I was doing some bilateral stimulation stuff at home on YouTube (not fully EMDR and can be dangerous to do without a professional or when alone and I am searching for an EMDR therapist now). Do not recommend or do this without a certified/medical professional. That night, I began to have some crazy dreams. I was in a carpeted room and we were sitting on bean bag chairs/couches and there was a white heavy door. Seemed to be a combination of the bean bag chair I had in the basement when my mom and dad lived together, and the white door of the home I grew up in with Mom/stepdad?
Paternal grandparents house had a similar door as well, in the bedroom I stayed in, when I went to visit them. It was always really loud and creaky and that room always freaked me out as sometimes it would break towards me loudly when open at night. I can recall the clock ticking loudly and the door slowly creaking towards me. I felt I was being watched/paranormal. Bio dad said it always made him uncomfortable as well.
The house I was in with my mom had a weird vibe as well. Months after my mom left my dad, I was half asleep and saw a shadow man walking around the room, I could hear footsteps. I was sleeping in bed with Mom and it was a thunderstorm. It was very dark and the man kept shifting into a scary monster at the foot of the bed. I felt terrified, but mom stayed asleep and it was nothing.
I know it happened before I was 3 1/2. I'm not sure what it symbolized, but it was very dark.

The very last one I saw him (two years ago, I'm 27 now), we watched a movie at his place. He sat on a chair and I laid in his bed.
He was obsessed with watching movies so we did that after lunch. It was a romantic comedy that he loved and Jennifer Lawrence was in it. At one point she was topless, swimming naked. I'm not sure if you could see everything, but it was nude and I'm sure there was a sex scene in there. He kept saying how much he lived the movie and how he wants a woman like her someday, but how he doesn't like Leo's.
I remember in my teens, him and his girlfriend would play movies with sex scenes in them and I would be sitting in the room with them. I recall feeling violated and embarrassed, but guilty for my arousal at the movie. Even when I was a child, they carelessly left an Antonio Banderas movie with a sex scene on and I got upset/scared cuz I didn't understand him rolling around naked with the actress and I didn't understand what sex was. They didn't seem to get it. Even a movie him and I saw in the theater (Noah's Ark) had a sex scene in it.
He would say I was seductive as a child and a flirt. Made comments about my breasts, "bisexual energy", how I was "hot", how my vagina looked just like my mom's when he was changing my diaper, how he wished he could date someone like me, how people probably thought we were dating, obsession about details of my sex life, losing my virginity, and whether my best female friend and I had fooled around yet, being a seductive toddler for answering the door naked, details about sex life with my mom, etc. So gross and he would invalidate me for being emotional on my period, etc. He would objectify other women in front of me and overshare about his dating life/talk about other women's butts that he liked. He got upset when I told him I might be gay and he said, "This isn't what I wanted for you. I (huge emphasis) think you're bisexual. When I was more religious, I wanted to wait until marriage. He said, "Most men won't do it, you gotta try the cow before you purchase the farm and guys won't like it if you're in an open relationship cuz they're possessive and men don't like sharing." (I mentioned how my boyfriend back then and I were considering an open relationship to let me have an experience/explore my bisexuality.
My mom left him after he admitted abusing his sister's, but continued to leave me alone with him for visits and lied to me about it. My heart sunk when I was reading about covert incest online and about watching the sexual/romantic movies with their children. That, combined with him comparing my vagina to my mom's while changing my diaper in front of her and her siblings, saying he wish he could date somebody like me, being obsessed with whether I slept with my best female friend yet, my hot friends and ex boyfriends mom he wished he could date, and everything just inappropriate and predatory. I thought I was rubbing his feet and back out of live, but now I just feel exploited and super depressed. Is it normal to feel this way about flashbacks and how do I know if this is real or if I'm just making it up in my head? Thank you for reading and letting me share.
Edit, added some info as it's coming back to me:
When going to visit my dad, I recall often feeling he was watching me in the shower as well. I liked to take my time and he would stand very close in front of the locked door and ask if I was okay in there. Jokingly kissing my neck while we were sitting on the couch (we were both fully clothed) and saying it was Italian kisses and that him and his family members did it growing up (were msotly Irish descended and UK, no Italian). And I told him to was an errogenous zone and told him to stop. I mispronounced the word and he made fun of me and corrected me. I was a junior or senior at this time in high school. I also have more disturbing nightmares. One (not reoccuring) where I'm wearing a white outfit with a white hat. I'm a toddler, and he's saying dirty things to me and putting his hand up my back in my white outfit. We're outside in our old yard by the pool and it's summertime. Maybe it's why I've been feeling depressed during the summer, although I usually love it? and a reoccuring vision I have as an infant/toddler and it seems to be him. He's leaning over me in white sweats and I can see his face. I think he molested me in the basement Mom said he used to take me down there with him, while he smoked cigarettes alone. I feel like when you're so used to the gaslighting and not wanting to blame the wrong person when the details are jumbled and messy. I just had a weird flashback right now trying to think about my grandparents guest bedroom and got a very sad/abused feeling/something off. Was definitely 4-6. Also, I just noticed something weird. My bedroom door is broken at my own place and won't close all the way (landlord needs to fix it). Not a heavy door, but it's white and I have to leave it creaked open, because I can't lock it. It reminds me so much of my creepy uncle's bathroom, guest bedroom and house doors as well. It was his and mom's childhood home and the locks don't work properly, or didn't a few years ago. That may, well I think, ta a huge reason why night terrors have been worse. And the white door similarity tells a lot. Here's some more stuff that's come up, so thank you for letting me share.

2019.03.30 15:43 TomAto314 Post Pull Depression - Xenogears Disc 1

Hello and welcome to Post Pull Depression, the only thread that asks: Doth thou desire the power?
I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END THE FIRST AND THE LAST 
Necron, is that you? No, this is the start of PPD not a random thing at the end…
YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS YOU SHALL BE AS GODS 
Hmm… out of place and incorrect Bible quotes… Aha! Are we doing a collab with that late 90s thing with giant mechs, a nonsensical ending, dead mom, daddy issues and a complete bastardization of Western religion? NEON GENESIS EVANGELION! Xenogears!
Accept no imitations! The real thing is here! Now let us stand tall, shake the heavens and after what feels like 10,000 years finally take a look at the units!

Chu-Chu Chugga Chugga Chu-Chu

Mascot: Chu
We start off with the mascot character of the game, Chu-Chu, who answers the question of what would happen if a moogle fucked Pikachu. Given the absurd plot points of Xenogears this might actually be cannon. Who the fuck really knows. Not me, and I just played Xenogears a few months ago.
Skills: Chu
Forest Dance - ST ~400 HP Heal w/ 3x Mod 10 MP
Chu-Chu is the only unit in the game who can heal Gears, because she does not actually get into a Gear like other units, but instead grows super fucking tall. Does this make more or less sense than Chu-Chu getting into a Gear? STOP! The second you try to make sense of Xenogears, you have already lost.
TMR: Chu
Plucky Ooki - Boost wind and earth resistance by 10%
Chu-Chu is a free raid summon so you will wind up with 15 of these TMRs whether you want them or not. You do not want them. What is an Ooki, you ask? That’s Chu-Chu’s species. What is Plucky? That was the kid version of Daffy Duck on Tiny Toon Adventures.

Depression: CHU

Just remember, Chu-Chu died for your sins. Ok, Chu-Chu didn’t actually die. I don’t want to get shit for spoilers like all my FF Tactics jokes. Or fuck, what do I know? Maybe Chu-Chu really did die and is a Christ-like figure in Xenogears, along with every other character.

RicoRico “Antonio” Banderas

Rico: ¿Quien?
Rico Rodriguez: “Hola amigos! Rico Rodriguez aqui! Oh dios mios! Look at the size of those robots! Muy alto! Bet I could hop right over a wall wit’ dese.”
No, Rico, not you. We want Ricardo Banderas, the green guy from Xenogears. You know the one that is relevant during the prison section of the game and then you never really hear from again? Then again, that fucking prison section is like 4/5ths of the fucking game. I mean seriously, they should have given that whole section the “DISC 2 treatment” and focused somewhere else.
TMR: Chump
Battling Champ - Boost HP, ATK and DEF by 15%
Yay! A little bit of everything and whole lot of nothing! Rico is the Battling Champ that Fei plot loses to. I know what you are thinking, I mentioned earlier about a prison, so why are we Battling now? Prison arena. Duh. They even go so far as to do an arcade style fighting mini-game that is surprisingly in-depth and yet another wasted development effort. I would never say this about a fishing mini-game though.

Depression: RICO IS RUINING THE GAME

Not only is a 3* DPS finisher worse than cancer, but I blame Rico by proxy for ruining the entire Xenogears game. They also never explain why he changes his name to Blanka and goes to live in Brazil.
Apparently I did this for Just Cause 3, but I’m going to do this again.
Thank you to SE for naming a unit Rico, since there was a Rico’s Pizza when I was a kid that had these yuuuge pizzas that all the cool kids got for their birthday parties. Sure they probably wouldn’t be that impressive by adult standards but when you are young an EX EX Large pizza looks like it was from the gods themselves! A slice took up the WHOLE plate! Probably the last time I was happy...

EmeraldaEmeralda

Archetype: Loli
Ok, we’ve got our mascot character, our beast like character, what box do we need to hit? That’s right, the loli box! Yikes, that sounds a little dirtier than I intended. But that’s ok, this one is a safe loli, no she’s not a 1000 year old dragon or vampire, that’s cliched. Emeralda is a nanomachine colony. So when you get off seeing her at a diner naked, remember you aren’t a pedophile, just a nanomachine-ophile!
Skills: Choices…
Ever feel like you’re stuck between choosing Flood chaining or Tornado chaining? Well, Rico Rodriguez: “porque, no los dos?” Goddammit, Rico, go away!
Aqua Dhaum - Water magic damage (1.8x) to all enemies Chaining Flood
Tornado Hand - Wind physical damage (3.8x) to one enemy Decrease wind resistance (50%) for 3 turns Chaining Tornado
Chain Morph - Use her skills twice
Why not just dual cast one of each? I’m sure it will work out fine!
TMR: Music Box
Distant Promise - (Materia) Boost MAG by 40% and restore MP every turn
Hey! This actually doesn’t suck. It’s about time we start making 40% MAG the standard and the more MP refresh the better. Also, the music box scenes were some of the best parts of the game.

Depression: SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT

Xenogears actually has a false ending where you can do a side-quest that transforms Emeralda into her teenage form. Who the fuck has a teen fetish? Disgusting. I guess Jake would be happy. Can we go back to naked loli in a tube please? Much better. Remember, it’s nanomachines. Totally ok.

HALFTIME!

Oh boy, when was the last time we actually had to do a halftime during PPD? I thought all those 5+ banners were long gone. I hope I don’t actually hit the word count on this one. I should probably stop rambling. Let’s see, I’ve only linked two XG songs and that Brazil -> Dazil was a stretch. So how about June Mermaid and perhaps my favorite… Shevat ~The Wind is Calling~

BartFart

Apostle: 12
Bartholomew the Apostle, best known for being skinned alive for spreading his faith. Oh wait, sorry. I got this confused with my Post Pull Confession where each week I do a parody review of the Bible.
Shorts: Eaten
Bartholomew JoJo Simpson is… wait? Bart Simpson’s middle name is JoJo? Has that been a motherfucking JoJo reference the whole time?
Bart: No Seriously
Bartholomew "Bart" Fatima is leader of a group of sand pirates who ravage the Ignas desert in their sand cruiser, the Yggdrasil.
Uhh… can we say sand pirate? I mean it’s better than sand people I suppose.
Skills: Choices…
I know I kinda joked above about Emeralda being able to both Tornado and Flood, but this is absurd now.
Tornado (Xenogears) - Water physical damage (4.6x) to one enemy Recover HP (2000) to caster Recover MP (20) to caster Chaining Flood
It’s fucking called Tornado but it’s water and flood chains. I told you Xenogears was complicated!
TMR: Ssss
Death Adder - ATK+135 Machine Killer 50%
The death adder is actually a snake. They come in common, and presumably rare and legendary as well.
STMR: Cousin Fucker
Margie's Wish - Boost ATK by 60%, LB gauge fill rate 100%, Machine Killer+ 50%
Margie is Bart’s cousin and since they are both royalty and this is an anime-style RPG the incest levels are off the charts!

Depression: I FEEL FOR YOU

I mentioned earlier that Rico ruined the game, but that was in general. What ruined the game for me personally was Bart’s nemesis Shakhan as I had to stop every time he was mentioned and do Chaka Khan. It added at least 10 hours to the game.
I feel like Bart is getting overlooked a bit. He has provoke with 30% innate evade, 4 different imbues, AoE mirage, 3 different chaining families and breaks. But hell, I overlooked him in XG too so I guess it’s only fair I do it here as well.

FeiFei Fong Dong

Contact: High
Fei Fong Wong is the pony-tailed protagonist of Xenogears. He begins the game as a nescient villager of Lahan Village, unaware of the truth of the world he lives in, as well as very confused by it.
He has a ponytail. Like a girl! True story, I put off playing Wild ARMs 2 because the MC wore a pink shirt. I am very judgmental. Btw, what does “nescient” mean?
nescient - lacking knowledge; ignorant.
Oh… how uh apropos. You don’t have to try and sound so fucking smart Xenosaga wiki! Just do what FFBE did.
Job: Amnesiac
I know what that word means because I’ve played more than two JRPGs!
The Contact - Increase ATK (40%) TDH (50%) and accuracy (25%) Machine Killer+ (50%)
Fei is The Contact. What does that mean? It means that the game cuts away to a spinning floating orb every hour with 3 robots on LCD monitors who spout out terms completely without context like “Contact”, “Anima” and “Antitype.”
TMR: ID10T
Power of Id - (Materia) Boost ATK and DEF by 20%, restore MP every turn and boost ATK by 30% when equipped with clothes
Id? As in id, ego, superego? I thought we were just bastardizing western religion, but it turns out western psychology too. Freud would roll over in his mother’s grave if he knew! Ha! I did a smart joke!
STMR: Colorful
Fei's Martial Wear - (Clothes) HP+1200 ATK+30 DEF+25 SPR+25 Enable Fei's Martial Wear: Boost ATK by 50% when equipped with a fist
Just in case you can’t make out the sprite, let’s have the Xenosaga wiki describe what it looks like.
a white and blue short sleeved martial arts garb which is tucked into his purple greaves with a gold trim tied in a lilac pink martial arts belt which is connected to the greaves, dark teal martial arts pants and forest green martial arts shoes with white ribbons on his shins.
Aka… white shirt, black pants. In case you’ve been wondering, yes XenoSAGA wiki is correct and not a typo. When you beat Xenogears, you see it says Episode V The End. The series was intended to be a 6 part series, but they only made Episode 1-3 after this aka Xenosaga.

Depression: BOOOO

They did Fei dirty in FFBE. They have him pull a Shinji and not even get in his fucking robot. HIS GEAR IS EVEN CALLED XENOGEARS! Instead his LB is just a compilation of his deathblows. And if you think that took a long time, that compilation is about the length of just a single of his in game attacks. Thank god I played it last on an emulator with frameskip… They could have at least had him throw a battleship as his LB.
At least Fei got a global buff!
Yamikei modifier increased from 7x to 8x
Fuck off.

EllySmElly

Rule: 34
Screamer - Magic damage (1x) to one enemy Decrease DEF (50%) for 3 turns to one enemy
I will fully admit that Elly is definitely one of the first video game girls that I rule 34’d. After all she does have the sex in the game. To you younger folks that grew up playing the GTA that might mean nothing to you, but let me tell you that was a big fucking deal back in the day, pun intended. It was almost as jarring as me first seeing the word “damn” in an NES game. I blame my entire fucking potty mouth on that game! WHY DIDN'T MY PARENTS PROTECT ME FROM THIS!?
Translation: Fail
Oh what fun it is to play a game that starts with Japanese trying to do English things and then translating that into English!
Urobolus Ring - Increase MAG (40%) and SPR (20%)
Yes, they meant Uroborus. They do this in XG. Not Goomie’s fault… this time.
Elehayym - Increase MAG (30%) and MP (20%) Increase fire, water, wind, and earth resistance (30%) Increase LB gauge (2) per turn
Elehayym is Elly’s full name you ignorant sluts. Even though in the US version it’s just spelled Elehaym. Technically it’s Elehayym Van Houten. Yes, she is Milhouse’s sister. Again, Xenogears is very complex. Also, if you didn't click on the "Fart" in Bart's title you missed a Simpsons clip.
Myyah Factor - Increase MAG (30%) Machine Killer+ (50%)
Kinda sorta wrong. In the shitty English translation Myyah was called Miang. So if they follow the incorrect translation, like they did with Urobolus, this should be the Miang Factor. Myyah is the last part of Elehayym backwards. Mind fucking blown for those who only knew the original English translation!
Jugend Alumna - Increase MAG/MP (20%)
Was this supposed to be Alumnus or Alumni? This one is all on Goomie. Alumna is not a word. proceeds to google it WHAT!? Not only is alumna a word, but it’s correct. Alumna is a female graduate, alumnus is a male graduate, alumni is an all male or mixed group and alumnae is an all female group. Latin can fuck-ius right off-ius. Although I do giggle that I graduated magna CUM laude. Hee hee hee.
TMR: GF
Psycho Rod - (Rod) ATK+32 MAG+120 MAG+20%
You likely saw that Pre Pull Optimism post that I linked in the intro, that was not done by me and I have actually not read it yet. I don’t want those jokes to influence what I would have wrote, but I did skim through it and I saw the psycho girlfriend joke and now that’s all I can think of. Exactly why I didn’t read it. Who knows what joke has been jokeblocked now? It probably would have been something about Miang being a euphemism for a woman’s menstrual cycle, but I couldn’t make that joke without spoiling a huge plot point anyways! Now we’ll never know!
STMR: MOTHER
Mother's Return - (Materia) Boost fire, water, wind and earth resistance by 60% and boost MAG by 60% when equipped with a rod
People who say that you don’t need to pull for Elly because you have Sophia are technically correct. Because Sophia = Elly. It really makes total sense if you stop and don’t think about it. Sophia from Star Ocean went to go fight the extra-dimensional beings and wound up marrying Raegen in FFBE. After she was “killed” by Citra, she reincarnated as the portrait here, Holy Mother Sophia. Then she came alive, a la Vigo the Carpathian, and joined the Gebler special forces in Xenogears. This is all in the Bible people! Or have you not read it, you heathens!

Depression: NONE

It’s my Elly! What other rating could I have given her! I know that GL gets a lot of shit, and deservingly so, but they do on occasion really pull through. Yes, it would have been a stupid decision NOT to normalize her CW frames. This is both good for them (more people pulling) and good for us (a more future proof unit). Now, why did JP not normalize her frames with enhancements? I don’t know, maybe they were too busy planning how to destroy the UoC system.

Post Pull Depression

I would like to take full credit for all of this. You may recall, months ago, I started the hashtag #SaveXenogears. Between no off-banner rainbows and fixing Elly’s frames I’m pretty sure that worked. Of course, now we have to make sure Ultima doesn’t get stuck with the shitty cast delay, so I am hereby starting #SaveUltima. Should I be putting my incredible hashtag powers to better use like #BeatCancer or #MeThree? Yes. But I’m not going to. #SaveUltima
I do believe that this is the longest PPD to date, and I hope to Deus that nothing ever tops it. (Also, I’m pressing F for you if you don’t have RES). I think the only possible contender to beat this would be Chrono Trigger. I’ve always actually thought of Xenogears as the spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger. Yes, Chrono Cross exists, but while that’s a great game, it’s a terrible sequel to CT. Xenogears, meanwhile, has the same style, music and themes of CT and just feels like a more grown up version of it. And by grown up, I do mean took their first semester in philosophy and now thinks they know everything!
Since everyone cares what my Elly pulls were…
So 47k got me Bart x2, Fei and Elly. Popped 5 FEB tickets for Elly #2 and will probably do the other 5 for Elly #3.
My irl friend did the whole 47k and got only 1 Elly… Remember, even with guarantees you can still get fucked.
See ya next banner!
