Big Little Lies "The Bad Mother"

"It's actually uncanny how much the dropoff in quality mirrors Game of Thrones. Juicy work of fiction is adapted—acclaim, success, perfection!  Showrunner runs out of book to adapt. Source author writes an outline for how the plot advances. Showrunner adapts outline into new season. It's a terrible recipe!" - H

"I don’t think Kidman deserves a second Emmy... I feel like her performance is really inconsistent this season." -Beyaccount

Beauty Break: Happy 4th of July

We wish we were feeling more festive today and could shout "Happy Fourth of July !!!" with enthusiasm but the USofA hasn't felt like something to celebrate lately what with concentration camps for children, a would be fascist and friend o' dictactors as President. The next election (and a real Captain America) can't come soon enough!

That said, if you appreciate movies / moviestars for their escapist value, WHICH WE DEFINITELY DO, let's briefly forget our collective troubles by staring at them in their red white and blues. We've shared some of these images before but such is also the natural of holidays... TRADITION. Enjoy the views after the jump...

Links: Captain Chris Evans, Fan Bingbing, and Queer-free Freddy

THR A yummy Chris Evans cover story on Trump resistance, Captain America as the key figure that allowed the MCU to flourish, and his superhero-free future. He really wants to do a musical!
Oh So Geeky fetishisizes the good captain with millions of gifs in this piece about his arc within the MCU and Avengers Infinity War in particular. So much Chris Evans this week!
The Guardian For its Chinese release Bohemian Rhapsody has lost three full minutes (including all queer references, any mention of AIDS, and what sounds like the loss of one entire character - Mercury's boyfriend). The movie has made almost a billion worldwide. Maybe have some respect for Mercury's legacy, Warner Bros, and just not release it in China?

More after the jump including animation lawsuits, what's next for Alex Wolff, the end of Game of Thrones, and a must-read Fan Bingbing article...

Posterized: Joe Johnston, a low profile director with a high profile filmography

by Nathaniel R

Joe Johnston behind the scenes on Star Wars (1977) his very first movie in his mid 20s

With the long-gestating The Nutcracker and the Four Realms now in theaters (its initial shoot wrapped nearly two years ago!) it occurred to us to look at the directorial career of Joe Johnston. When the studio opted for a full month of reshoots on The Nutcracker, the original director, Lasse Hallström was unavailable so Johnston stepped in (and now there's a joint "directed by" credit). Johnston is hardly a household name but every time his name pops up we're reminded that a chunk of his filmography is actually fairly famous.

How many of his 10 theatrically-released movies have you seen? The posters are after the jump...

Beauty Break: To Chris Evans on his 37th Birthday

by Nathaniel R

A very happy 37th birthday today to one of Hollywood's true good guys, Chris Evans. In addition to making the perfect superhero onscreen, he's a progressive feminist and all around role model offscreen. His only sin that we can recall is that one time he threatened to retire from acting when his run as Captain America ends (in 2019 *gulp*). But his recent stint on Broadway in Lobby Hero suggests to us that he might not give up on that particular craft so quickly. 

He's wonderful and also, obviously, an all-time looker. Much balm for sore eyes after the jump...

Have a Wonderful Memorial Day

Thank you to all those we've lost and anyone who serves. And, given the dire straits we're in with the country's current immoral treasonous leaders, thank you to anyone who upholds and personifies ideals that are worth living, working towards, restoring if lost, and fighting for. Be your best selves out there!

Infinity Tweet 

LOL 

That's definitely a print lesson lost in the age of online media. After the jump warrior unicorns, a Clouds of Sils Maria / superhero fantasy that made me laugh out loud, Janelle Monae and Tessa Thompson, and various bon mots from twitter in general and film fanaticism in particular...
