Today I'd rather be...
When I posted yesterday morning about my happy hard-on for Daniel Brühl's every moment on the last episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier I hadn't seen that the hashtag #ReleaseTheZemoCut had become a thing, but it had, and Marvel (clearly anticipating the viral possibilites of that single second of his dance-moves beforehand) went and dropped more footage of Baron Zemo's groovin. For god's sake, they put an hour-long remix of it on their official YouTube page. So now you've got a video to play in the background at your next dance party! (With only vaccinated people in masks, of course.)
"Described as a “vibrant reimagining” of Russell T. Davies’ seminal British series, the new Queer as Folk will center on a diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy. Stephen Dunn (Little America) serves as creator, writer and exec producer. He will also direct several episodes."
I'm not one hundred percent sure that this is the first time for this series that I've done back-to-back death scenes from the same movie, but I couldn't help myself -- I'm still buried hard mentally inside the MonsterVerse movies and I really wanted to giggle about this moment from Kong: Skull Island today. An even funnier death than the one I shared two weeks back -- I hope that actor Shea Whigham dines out on this death-scene often, because it's a classic. If I was an actor I'd want all the death-scenes -- fuck being a Final Girl. Give me a good death! Even better give me a violently destroyed dummy replica of myself to keep as a souvenir! That's reason enough to become an actor. (Although I wouldn't want to have to sit under the plaster mask, god forbid.)

Anyway have we all seen Godzilla vs Kong by now? You wouldn't have seen it when I did that post two weeks back but by now I assume you have -- it had great numbers in theaters and on HBO Max and every damn person had an opinion. So what's yours? I reviewed it over at Pajiba if you missed it; my opinion was high. So high that I've gone back and started watching (or in some cases re-watching) all of the 1980s-90s Godzilla movies, called the "Heisei Era" of films, which have been a blast. There's even a Twitter thread for that...
... you can learn from:
The Invitation (2015)
Will: You look different, Edie.Eden: I am different. I'm free. All that useless pain,it's gone. It's something anyone can have, Will,and I want you to have it too.
"Julien Knafo’s BRAIN FREEZE. First pitched at Frontières, the festival’s world-renowned international co-production market, the film is a smart and stylish zombie comedy that slyly comments on social concerns both domestic and universal, telling the tale of an environmental disaster that leads to a fast-spreading virus ravaging a wealthy gated community off the island of Montreal. BRAIN FREEZE joins the ranks of recently-released cinema that holds an eerie mirror up to our collective experience even though scripted and shot pre-pandemic. While production on the winter-set chiller was abruptly halted four days before completion following Quebec’s lockdown, shooting was miraculously able to wrap the following summer. "
