I saw "The Shape of the Water" and I am not fascinated as many. I saw "3 Billboards..." and I think it was an incredibly such movie. I saw "Paddington 2" and I think everyone in the world should watch it, because he is nice and positive.

GOODBYE MFC

It was at some point in 2011 that I stumble upon the (now dead) list of JImLaw. Doing click here and there I arrived to MFC, confused as I was for the first days of how this work, I understood for the very beginning, that in order to receive you must give first. What I loved about this was the mojo, a movie site by a movie fan, for movie fans.

I didn't have among my friends or family someone who likes movies with the same passion as I do, and until this day only MFC people have been the only ones who can understand and share that passion. MFC brought so many things in my life I could have not ever dream about, first, it opened my mind about watching movies regardless if they were good, bad, what genre, or if they were popular. MFC made me NOT feel guilty of loving movies so much, and to never feel the need to justify it. It was MFC as well who opened my mind into creative stuff and my passion for writing and reviewing. The idea of MFC Calendars came after one of those crazy spontaneous nights where all the users posted for the first time pictures of their real selves at the same time. It was called "VAnity Night".

There were not always nice times, there was drama, yes, but even so, that made this feel as a community, the friendship of some users became stronger, there were MFC Crushes too, there were times were the newsfeed was soo NSFW that it was confused as a porn site. I did enjoyed it all. MFC opened my mind in many ways, and tough me that it was definitely possible to live in a (online) world were people treat each other kindly, were we were all supportive and have always a comfort word for other users. I have seen Schmoes get divorce, break up, find their soulmates, give birth a baby, lost their pets, move to new houses, get a new job, survive an operation lost a loved one, find a loved one. We all have changed a lot over the years, some have gone, some have stayed, but what it was sure, is that this place was here, always waiting for us, to discuss and talk about movies, tv shows, music and of couse games.

This site have bring a lot of very important things to my life in a personal level. It was after a breakup that I put my energy and working with others users as a team for the Calendars, so making it every year was very special and healing. It was in 2015 that after a rough and brutal year of depression I went to Paris and met another Schmoe (Elder Predator) and it was an amazing and again healing experience. It was in 2016 that I had to deactivate my profile after I was being harassed online and in my personal life with horrible blogs and threatening emails. But there were Schmoes that reached out to find out where I was, and what was going on, I did have the help of Elder Predator and Paul Shirey (Editor in Chief) to find a way for me to still be online in a safely way. It was an MFC user who gifted me a laptop and a bunch of movies to watch online so I could survive the hardships of the voluntary work I was doing for years, so I could watch something even if I didn't have internet.

So to each one of you I am so thank full for making this place so special and giving so much, join facebook, and let's keep the community going, somewhere, somehow. I love you.

Laksmikanti updated her STATUS: about 1 month ago

Extremely heartbroken for the news of the site shutting down, l have had amazing experiences here and it helped me in so many ways. Heck, I ended in Paris two years ago hanging out with one Schmoe. I'm glad for the ones that are already keeping in touch through Facebook and other social media sites. But I'm terribly sad for the ones who have not come back from years because they will be missed and there was always hope they would return, Invidtus, Glinda and others. Feel free to add me on Facebook and l will check that other websites you are already recommended. I'm on the same name in social media. I will be backing up a lot of material here. Love you all.

Elle



Elle-poster-large

Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
Written by:
Cast: Isabelle Huppert
Studio:
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: The successful CEO (Isabelle Huppert) of a video game company tries to learn the identity of the man who raped her.

Review:

I do have a long term relationships with French Movies. European cinema in general tells the stories in a different way, they are usually slow paced, not high aestheticism, like normal lives stories which develop in long space of times, without telling much, no drama, not high emotions, but always, always memorable performances...[more]...

The Handmaid's Tale.

C-cutjexyaaxad_

This is one of those stories, that came to my knowledge due to a TV Show. I mean the book existed, then when someone makes it to a TV Show or a movie, is when I come to know about it. I understand there is already a movie long ago, which I haven't see... yet. But the TV Show is incredible and impressive.

See I love stories about dystopian societies, I sepcially love the fact how people keep saying: "No, this is impossible to happen". Specially if you are from U.S.A., "No, it won't happen here", "We won't get there" and it is quite possible.

For the ones who do not know about the story it resumes in a total transformation of USA as a country and society, where Human Rights are banned, There is no Constitution or President and instead is ruled by a group of very "Conservative" people who:

1. Forbid any sort of Religion, but use the bible for their convenience.
2. Women have no right to work or receive money, or education. Not even basic reading and writing.
3. People are classified according to the function they want them to perform. They are also dressed in those colours.
4. There is a huge infertility problem which in consequence have them use women as "handmaids" they are only used to procreate and nothing else, they even have no right to their own identity.

The Cast is tremendous, with Elizabeth Moss as the main character June/Offredd narrating the entire story. Special mention has the works of Samira Wiley as Moira. Q.T. Fangbenie as Luke an unrecognizable Madeline Brewer as Janine, and Yvonne Stravhoski as Serena Joy. What makes the story, especially the book is to see the bits of how a modern society and a first country became like that, and how the people did not see the signs, did not wake up when the red flags were there. The horrific parts are not only the punishments and the restrictions and the doctrine. But the way they just simply convince themselves this is the way or the way they just simply think is right to do. Add that the hypocricy of having brothels and traffic, into their disturbing society.

Watching the final scenes where one of the characters reach Canada as a refugee, was a punch on the guts and Samira just plays it with excellence. It is unbelievable the "refugee pack" that she receives upon her arrival, and most importantly, the dignity where she is treated. I hear the TV Show will have more seasons, where this one finished where the book ended, so let's see what they will do with this material.

Is a solid 9/10

With all these events coming out about inappropriate sexual behavior in the industry, I am wondering if will come the day where no innocent is left, or are we passing through an era of purification, where all the bad things are coming out giving place to better times, better people?

The future will have both the good and the evil in it. Perhaps, Hollywood will try to reform for a long while, though. That could happen.

That moment when you are doing an extensive review, have dozens of tabs open because you needed some research and you end closing the tab of your review by accident, losing all what you have wrote.

grelber37 at 08:56 AM Oct 25

Noooo! I am sorry to read that you will have to reconstruct your review.

At least, one good thing just happened. You recommended many Mexican and Spanish movies to us Schmoes and expanded our palettes thereby. That was generous.

Laksmikanti
Laksmikanti at 09:19 AM Oct 25

Yes, it was such a waste! the blog of Mexican and Spanish Movies was like a self consolation task, as the movie I was reviewing was "Y Tu Mama Tambien". Thanks for the comment.
