Sharp Objects

Let’s talk for a moment about one of the greatest and mostly misunderstood masterpieces that was ever seen on TV.

*No spoilers*

The main problem with sharp objects is that people watch it as a murder mystery show, and it’s far from being one. This show is not a suspense show, it doesn’t have a cliffhanger at the end of every episode (not in the regular way that is) and it’s pacing is slow. That is one of the main criticism on the show, it’s pacing. But that’s because they are looking at it as a detective drama. For what the show really is the pacing is perfect.

I don’t understand how can people get so confused by what they see, I mean they literally give you ALL the answers at episode 1. They get all the out of the way for you so you could really get suck in without distractions. Yeah ok they don’t spell it out for you but it’s all there

This show, this amazing masterpiece, is about one thing and one thing only. Camille Preker’s own emotional journey. And it’s mind blowing. This show is just one big nervous system and they put you inside it. The music, the directing, the editing, the acting all pulls you into a gripping emotional journey and leave you emotionally drained after each episode. It’s so beautifully depressing and so beautifully worth it.

And I’m not even going to start with the importance of the show and the issues it put a light on. Non other show did what Sharp Objects did with these important issues. This will have to be a whole different post.

But if you watch closely, if you really pay attention to it, Sharp Objects will take you on the ride of your life.

I’m mad

I’m sorry but this just pissing me off.

There’s only ONE reason Patricia Arquette keeps getting awards for that awful show and that is because most voters are men, and it shows!! It’s 2019 and it’s still a thing in Hollywood. It’s ridicules!

First lets start with the fact that Sharp Objects, from the beginning, was a hard pill for men viewers to swallow. And I can go on on this forever. But this boils down to one simple thing:

Men are more comfortable watching a bad woman. A woman who is a little fat and not that pretty, with shady moral views, who should really thank the only two guys who wants to have sex with her and help them escape prison… Than they are with a broken woman with psychological issues (that some of them are caused by men). There’s nothing “sexy” for men in Camille, they don’t feel comfortable watching her mantel breakdown and her self harm (and not just the cutting part of it). But they do feel comfortable with Adora, because she’s a bad woman, and that’s what “complicated” women are for them: Bad.

Sharp Objects is one of, if not the, most important shows that aired on TV.

Camille Preaker is one of, if not the, most important characters on TV.

And we need more shows and characters like this.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is 20 this week, and I know that there’s a lot of “What I learned from it” posts on the internet but I wanted to made my own because this wasn’t just another TV show for me, it was a lot more than that. Buffy taught me about feminism obviously, she taught me that you […]

Let’s talk about Black Mirror for a moment

*contains spoilers for the first 4 episodes of season 3

 

You know how it’s called BLACK mirror? So what the fuck happened to them this season???!!

Ok, first episode: What’s the difference between this one and the ones they did in the first 2 seasons? And how is it really “black”, you only have one crazy person there, the others, like the truck driver and her brother, realized this is bullshit and they are happy. So, you don’t HAVE to be in this shity game. Anyway, it was a really weak episode and I felt like her biggest problem is that she’s crazy, not that the others are.

Episode 2: Ok so what the fuck was that!?!? Like seriously! The only point you took from this waste of time is: when your mom calls you, YOU PICK UP. That’s it! That was the only point of the episode, other than that it was a lame copy of inception. I really hated this one to be honest.

Episode 3: What is wrong here? really I’m asking. They gave the cheating basterds what they got AND put away 2 pedophiles! How is this a bad use of technology??

Episode 4: Ok they are fucking kidding me right? This is literally “pink mirror”, this is just so lovey dovey and perfect future. WTF?!

Now the only thing that changed is the fact they moved to Netflix, but maybe that’s enough for them to ruin everything and start to think positive. This 4 episodes were mostly a love song for technology , and there was nothing BLACK about them.

So yeah I’m really disappointed from this season so far, and I find it hard to continue watching. If I wanted a stupid regular drama I’d watch  any other shit that’s on TV, but I was looking forward to the dystopian future this show gave us for the last 2 seasons, and I guess enough money will change even the darkest shows.

So thank you Netflix for showing me a real life black mirror.

Back in the cave

Yesterday I tried to have a conversation with a friend about the new Pixar short film Borrowed Time. Now this friend is a film student and she goes to lectures about films and all that.

But when I tried to start a debate about this, and what I think about the issue, she blocked me and wasn’t very interested to talk about it. Now I don’t know if this is because she think I have no idea what I’m tallking about (tho I do have a B.A in the subject, she doesn’t know this). Or because she just doesn’t want to share or talk about what she knows.

But this is something that happens a lot lately, pepole just don’t talk about things, like really talk about them you know?

This is also the problem I have with this short film.

I mean yeah cool, this is a fucking awesome film but why don’t go all the way with it?! Why do I need to watch it online? Why don’t they have the balls to relase it like their other shorts?

If you start something, finish it! If you want to put an important issue on the table then for God’s sake PUT HIM ON THE TABLE.  I don’t want anymore singing mountains or bitchy birds, if you’re going to do a short like this then realse it the right way!

People are too afraid to try or to talk about new things in pubic. And this is what I “hate” about pixer and about socity these days. It’s like they are opening a door but keeping it shut at the same time.

And this annoy me.

Let’s talk about Arrow and Sleepy Hollow for a moment

This post contains spoilers for both shows

In the last episodes of these two shows they killed off a female lead, now let’s be completely honest: in the case of SH it was a great decision because Abbie was just a bad character.

Of course it was the writer’s fault for writing her so badly, but the acting wasn’t so good either. I personally liked the new FBI agent much better and hope she’ll stay. 

But that’s not the point, the point is shown much better in Arrow. Killing off Laurel was just stupid! And I’m not a big fan of the show but I can recognize really dumb ass sexist writing when I see it. Even in the killing of Abbie, a character I don’t care about at all.

Both these characters were killed off by one reason and one reason only: they couldn’t  have been used as a love interest for the leading male. It was clear with Laurel and Abbie and Ichabod had no chemistry what so even and it shows.

When a TV show kills off a female lead just because she can’t be a love interest are not only sexist and disgusting, this is a given, but it shows how little TV writers think of their famale audience.

“Here are some hot shirtless guys for you ladies, and their girlfriends”. This is the mind set of these writers, and in 2016 it’s about time this bullshit will end.
