Oscar Horrors: The Sixth Sense

"I love this movie so much. And to those sad about M. Night's current career, Split with James McAvoy has gotten positive reviews!." -Connor

"Re: "Spoilers" - I can't be the only one who thinks that it's a spoiler to even be warned about a "spoiler" or a twist. It immediately puts you on guard, even if the ultimate spoiler hasn't been revealed." -The Jack

Good Morning from Rita and Me. 

I'm not as peppy as Rita Hayworth here* -- yesterday was so disheartening on so many levels -- but the coffee is helping. While I struggle to get my day going with a smile, tell us about yours -- any big movie plans this weekend?

What could have been...

This Michael Thompson photo was taken ten years ago for W Magazine's May 2006 issue.

Curio: "we went skinny dipping and did things that frightened the fish!"

Yes. that's a quote from Steel Magnolias. I apologize as this is entirely unrelated. It happens.

Are you familiar with "Fish Love"? It's a not-for-profit company from Nicholas Röhl and the actress Greta Scacchi. The goal? I'll just quote them here:

to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth's marine ecosystem. Since then, the Fishlove images have succeeded in bringing the subject of over-fishing to the front covers and pages of the world's media many times over. 

This year's catch is the adorable Emma Thompson and Greg Wise shot by photographer Jillian Edelstein to promote the endangered. But there's more (slightly nsfw) after the jump...

A old friend alerted me to this tasty illustration by Josh Haro. (Love the tagline) 

I'm salivating so answer me these questions three:


  1. Doesn't this box cover essentially promote cannibalism? 
  2. What does Yearning taste like? 
  3. Isn't it frighteningly easy to imagine marketing tie-ins for different movies?


Anyway I giggled and it gave me a smile prompting a flashback to Renée's Extreme Sour Lemon Candy. Remember that? Such a classic.

A Question For Readers About "Curio"

For those of you who missed it during much Oscar nomination hullabaloo, Alexa who ran the Curio column has left us after great years of arts & crafts each Monday. The demands of cinephilia and mommyhood were too competitive! She encouraged us to keep the series going and wants me to do more art myself (which I know I should -- oh to master time!). But we're not sure how we'll revise the series exactly.

Do you like online arts and crafts? Do you enjoy mashups and fan art? Do you follow any artists or webcomics or the like? Love to hear some input in the comments. In the meantime please look at this amazing looping Vine (i've put it after the jump for this who can't handle this much manic looping imagery in the background while they read the blog) but it's a trippy must for The Force Awakens / John Boyega fans.
