Trip a Little Link Fantastic

Links and news bits collected for you

And the Runner Up Is... I guest starred on this podcast episode about the 1978 Oscars: Coming Home vs. The Deer Hunter
Cinematic Corner Sati has been counting down the days... or drooling down the days for Jason Momoa as Aquaman so here's her spoiler-filled review
Variety what's behind the uptick in the US box office this past year?
The Advocate counts down the 15 best LGBT tv shows of the year: Pose, One Day at a Time, and Schitts Creek more
Vanity Fair Why you should root for Aquaman's box office success
Vanity Fair Kevin Spacey's bizarre holiday video reprising his House of Cards character
Deadline why did Welcome to Marwen bomb at the box office?
Gay Body Blog [NSFW] counts down the best naked scenes of the past year or so. 
/Film interesting thought experiment. Would Green Lantern (2011) have been well received had it premiered in 2006 or 2016 due to the changing nature of the superhero genre.

Today's Video
Behind the scenes of "Trip a Little Light Fantastic"

Do y'all think Mary Poppins Returns will manage two best song nominations? I think they're only going to get one but if this one gets nominated we'll get Lin-Manuel Miranda performing at the Oscars which would be sweet. 

Finally...
Redbox released their list of most rented titles of 2018. Apparently El Paso Texas is the busiest city for redbox rentals (who knew?) and Dwayne Johnson is the biggest overall draw. Ready for it? 

 

  1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  2. Rampage
  3. Daddy's Home 2
  4. Game Night
  5. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

I mean where's A Fantastic Woman or We the Animals? I kid I kid. Americans just aren't adventurous in their movie tastes, whether they're going to the movies or watching them at home. In both scenarios they want big muscles, big explosions, big laughs, and big CGI beasties. That covers most of it.

That Kevin Spacey video is scarier than the Us trailer.

That Kevin Spacey video is very disturbing; he's clearly delusional if he thought putting that video out was a good move. However if I read in between the lines, it sounds like he's looking to name names?? It'd be interesting to see exactly what the fallout would be.

I will say that my beloved sister revealed in the last few days that she's such a fan of John Lithgow that she watched "Daddy's Home 2". We had the best laugh probably of all year.
