Last night I watched a foreign movie on Netflix called Skins, a dark-comedy fantasy about a cast of characters with deformities of the sort that aren't based on any actual ones. For instance one woman has no eyes. Some of the humor can go to some rather gross areas, it almost feels like something John Waters might conceive of, whether you find that to be a good thing or a bad thing I leave to you. I think its worth a watch.

I don’t like this bullshit about test scores. This movie should be weird and unsettling as fuck. If people were unsettled, I’d say that’s a win. The book is weird and unsettling as fuck, and no effort was made to make the Biologist seem “sympathetic.”

Ugh.

Coming up though!

There’s another Skins on Netflix that’s about a bunch of super horny British nerds getting it on.

the people complaining about the test screening have probably never read the book.

Dude... this movie is not for 8-year-olds. Nor is the book. It’s essentially really triply psychological body horror, with a twist of Lovecraft and a little bit of... I dunno... Graft vs. Host? Hard to explain, but no 8-year-olds should be watching or reading this.

I’d say it’s dark enough that it should be marketed exclusively to adult audiences. Thematically, it won’t be a crowd-pleaser for high school kids either, I expect.

Yeah. Probably.

Anyway, I trust the creative team. I know all the actors had to read the book, and Alex Garland is the man. He had the sense to hire Geoff Barrow for the score, and they’re all fans of the book.

I finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.

It was pretty light on story, and also big-time fucked with the comic books (Ego is absolutely NOT Peter Quill’s fucking father). But it was fun and colorful and had some cool music syncs.

Lazy script though. Especially for Chris Pratt’/Peter Quill. I felt like he was thinking about other things when he was delivering lines. Is he just a shit actor after all? I dunno. He was totally phoning it in.

Not as good as the first. Sort of disappointed that they went hardcore comedy instead of digging a little deeper. But whatever... it was fun.

Not really a comedy but I rewatched Peter Greenaway's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover the other day: a great satire on 80s excesses.

What others ones are you hot about?

I used to love him. Sort of. But this was over a decade ago when I was a full-fledged cinephile, which I'm not now at all. Still, I think about him now and then.

i used to be nuts about the pillow book mostly due to a massive crush on vivian wu, but i don’t know how i’d feel about it today.

zoo i watched recently, and thought it great though.

and 26 bathrooms is one of my favorite short films.

but i hated the belly of an architect when i saw it. that one was also ages ago. i felt the author was unfair to his character. but i’d have to look at it again and see what’s what.

Not that I'm hugely emotionally invested in the Golden Globes, but I am a bit upset that GET OUT didn't get more love.

I actually haven't seen too many of the other noms, so if there really are 5 screenplays better than GET OUT, then we're living in some magical age.

It got a best picture musical/comedy nod. Which is weird, because isn’t it a fucking horror movie?

Still haven’t seen it.

I’m pissed that Blade Runner 2049 didn’t get any nominations. Fucking ridiculous. Makes Mad Max Fury Road look like lame ass shit.

Also, Patty Jenkins may not deserve an actual Oscar for Wonder Woman— and the film, while fun, certainly doesn’t deserve a Best Picture nom— but Jenkins should absolutely get a Best Director nod for making gold out of shit, and beating the hell out of her male contemporaries at their own game.

Hopefully the Oscars don’t make these mistakes. I hope Dunkirk wins, but Blade Runner deserves a nod. No question. And Deakins OWNS cinematography. Fuck everyone else.

(Haven’t seen Dunkirk either, just .... Nolan deserves an Oscar. He’s made the best picture of several different years now, and only garnered a nomination for Inception, which isn’t his strongest.)

forgot to say, watched OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY over the weekend.

it was total shit of course, which was the point. most of it was decent enough comedy except at the end when they have to have some heroic bullshit to justify their existence or something—the required happy ending. but otherwise yeah some cheap laughs i did not mind with a drink.
