I’m tired. I’m tired of lesbian films taking place in the past, tired of not being able to enjoy a film because I know the terrible ending where someone dies or goes back to her husband is coming closer and closer. That doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy them from time to time, after all my favourite film of last year, Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a period drama. I’m just tired of that setting being the only way for me to find lesbian representation in films. Why can’t I have a Love, Simon? Why is it that lesbian love stories are always about pain and suffering? I’m tired honestly.
The last one of the day.
(And probably my most anticipated one.)
As a note, this is literally a love letter to Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson and I have no shame in saying so.
Zack Snyder is back and with a vengeance.
When Justice League was released, it was clear that this was not the vision that Snyder had seen when he first started doing this film. But family took a priority in his life and he was forced to leave before the film ever was finished. Joss Whedon took over and the end product was more than disappointing.
Suicide Squad was not a good movie. I’m sorry but it wasn’t. That doesn’t mean it didn’t have good things in it. Mostly Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, probably the best casting in a very long time. But now, with James Gunn at the helm the second coming of this crew, I think we might have a good movie in front of us. I think DC is intelligent to not label it as a sequel and mostly simply a new squad.
With DC FanDome underway today, it is time for a lot of trailers and all day we will have you guys cover and give you all of them as soon as they arrive.
New Charlie Kaufman alert!
You know what to do. Hit the jump, watch the trailer. I’ll give my two cents afterwards.
After what seems to be forever, The Crown is finally coming back to us. With season two having dropped in December 2017, it has been almost two years since the critically acclaimed series was on our screens. But fear not because it is coming back and Netflix just released the first trailer for the upcoming season which arrives on November 17, 2019.
I grew up with DC comics, I wasn’t a Marvel girl, I was a DC girl. I just loved it and I know it so well. So imagine how sad I was when I never found myself super excited for the DCEU. That has changed a bit over the years with the great Wonder Woman, Shazam and Aquaman. But now, it seems that the DCEU has found its stride and it looks to keep it going with their newest addition, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
Now, while Arianne has already seen the film (and you can read her review here), I have not. Nor have I been keeping up with the discourse of the film. In fact, outside of the title, the winning of best screenplay at Cannes, and the universal acclaim, I know virtually nothing about the film. And that’s what trailers are for.
