83 | Leatherface

LF post.jpg

Directors: Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury

Writer: Seth M. Sherwood

Synopsis: The movie begins in the mid 1950's, where we learn the Sawyer family, headed up by matriarch Lili Taylor, is up to their usual shenanigans. But when they murder the daughter of a local deputy, he responds by doing the sensible thing & taking the minor Sawyer children into state custody. When chaos erupts at the state home, a handful of wards escape (along with a nurse, who is having a terrible first day) and now it's the local deputy's job to track them down.


Stephen King is just sooo hot right now and since we'd never want to be considered "un-hip," we'll be jumping on the King-wagon to review the recently released Gerald's Game, which is now streaming on Netflix.

82 | Mother!

mother post.jpeg

Director/Writer: Darren Aronofsky

Stars: Jennifer Lawrence (mother), Javier Bardem (Him), Ed Harris (man), Michelle Pfeiffer (woman), the Gleeson brothers & Kristen Wiig?!

An unnamed woman (Jennifer Lawrence) lives in a secluded farmhouse with her husband, a famous poet who is struggling with writer’s block. While the man tries to write, the woman keeps herself busy by renovating the house, which had previously been almost completely destroyed by a fire. Things aren’t perfect (dude is pretty moody, emotionally unavailable, etc.), but she seems to be pretty content.

Everything changes when a guy shows up at their door, claiming he thought the place was a B&B. It’s Ed Harris, & he’s soon followed by his wife, Michelle Pfeiffer, then more & more people. Soon, both JLaw & the farmhouse (& the viewer!) begin to crumble under the weight of all the uninvited guests.

 


Next up, another entry into the Texas Chainsaw franchise. But wait! This one's helmed by the duo who brought you the ultra gory french extremity flick Inside. See, now we've got your attention. This one's available online now, so check it out, then check back here in a couple of weeks to see what we thought of it. Toodles!

Our Log Does Not Judge | Part 18

TWIN PEAKS
"There's some fear in letting go."

Ain't it the truth. Join the gals as they bid farewell to the return. What a great time we had this summer! Hopefully this doesn't come off as super maudlin, but with all the crazy, ridiculous crap happening in the world, it's been really nice to have Twin Peaks around again. We've been able to occupy our minds with this really neat puzzle for a while, which has given a lot of people a fun mental break. Also, & maybe more importantly -  it's nice to be reminded that, as terrible as humanity can often seem, we do make some damn fine art.

Thanks for listening to what our Log had to say. It's been tons of fun :)

Our Log Does Not Judge | Part 17

The penultimate episode starts just like we predicted it would, with everybody converging at the Twin Peaks Sheriff Department. Lucy, Andy & Freddie fulfill their destinies, we find out Naido's deal (but not the drunk's), & then... Well, then we go in a direction nobody predicted. The past dictates the future, indeed.

All thanks & praise to Lynch/Frost in the highest for this gift of an episode. Our most humble gratitude to you both for giving us just what we wanted. Join us as we get super greedy like little Richard Hornes & ask for resolutions to so many dangling plot lines, like noobs who've never watched a Lynch film. Oh, you silly girls...

Our Log Does Not Judge | Part 15

You'd be hard pressed to find an episode in any of the three seasons of Twin Peaks with as many genuine feels as this one. Between Big Ed & Norma's well-deserved moment & Margaret's beautiful send-off, part 15 was as close to heartwarming as the show's going to get. But don't worry, high strangeness still abounds, as Evil Coop takes us on a tour of the apartment above the gas station.

Director: David F. Sandberg

Writer: Gary Dauberman

Synopsis: A group of orphans, & the nun who cares for them, are invited to live in the home of the Mullins (a dollmaker & his invalid wife) in the 1950s. Once there, the precocious girls discover the dollmaker’s sad history - that his young daughter, Bee, was killed in a tragic car accident a decade before.

The orphans begin to witness strange, paranormal events in the house, which seem to be related to a hideous doll found locked away in a secret space within the dead daughter’s "off-limits" bedroom. One of the girls in particular, Janice, is plagued with visitations by the doll & Bee’s spectre, who seem to have special plans for her. Will her best friend, Linda, be able to help her before it’s too late?
