“Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”-. Macbeth (Roman Polanski, 1971)
Today's alternative minimalist poster is dedicated to Face Off. Fun Fact: Nicolas Cage and John Travolta spent two weeks together before filming to learn how to play each other. They decided on specific gestures and vocal cadences for each character that could be mimicked. What poster from my feed, did you like the most? Comment here or DM me!

In the competitive, blood-sport world of dancing, Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan nestles itself into the minds of the audience as a dark and twisted tale unfolds, detailing the deterioration of delicate minds and the ever present importance of self control. In one of my favourite roles she portrays, Natalie Portman tragically embodies herself as the struggling soul alongside the wild and edgy persona played by Mila Kunis. Nina aspires to impress her artistic director Thomas and land the role of the Swan Queen. In attempting to gain Thomas' attention, she pushes her body to psychological and physical extremes that later impact her every move and judgement. Natalie did a fantastic job with the role she took on. Long gone is the innocent girl from the Star Wars franchise, now replaced with a fearful-eyed, tightly wound and fragile woman. Lily, on the other hand, is relaxed and ever so slightly unorthodox. Refusing to live up to the stereotypes of a typical ballerina with natural to no makeup, tattoo-free and softly spoken, she creates a living, breathing train wreck of a magnificent disaster. Mila Kunis was exceptional and appeared as though her role was almost a second nature. While watching this film, I made many assumptions about her character and expected her to turn out quite differently in the end, but was pleasantly surprised at where her character journey swerved and ended. This film is dramatic, kooky and shocking which is very much to the signature of Darren's work. Prior to this film, the only other piece of his I have viewed is Mother! (Which is equally as disturbing in its own way). When thinking about the connection between ballerinas and a psychological horror before watching this film, I was very skeptical but after watching it, you can definitely see that Darren has used the concept of "you are your own worst enemy" and applied it using natural resources. The brilliance of this film has left me quite speechless, but also in pieces. Towards the end
Great PR-pic! This summer will be a treat for sharkmovie-fans (like me) when the bestseller novel "MEG" hits the cinemas! It has taken 21 years (!) for this massive project to be made a reality, with many big companies, directors, actors and budgets been discussed. (Once along the way the budget was recordbreaking 200 million dollars)! Nowadays CGI effects are both better and cheaper so perhaps just as well? And no, MEG is not about some random girl (or Meg Ryan) - it's about a Megalodon. Y'know a 70-foot "dinosaur super shark", big as f**k!🦈 They ruled the seas million of years ago. What if they still were out there?👀 Starring Jason Staham and Ruby Rose (who almost drowned during shooting!), produced by Jurassic Park-people and directed by Jon Turtletaub - who made the excellent "National Treasure" (oh yeah, love that film!). It all combined gives me hope that this movie will be awesome! Well, for sharkmovie-fans that is!😉😎 Yeah baby, it IS a popular subgenre after all...👍😋 Ps. The story? Who cares - do you SEE that picture?!!!😁
