But before we reach all of that, there are recommendations from the weekend.From Wes Craven’s pioneering horror series scream A modern masterpiece of Chinese animation (Donghua), a medium-definition show like HBO Sopranos, A spectacular martial arts drama like Warrior, We saw a lot of cool and eclectic things on TV and movies.

Screaming trilogy

I’ve watched some of Mute’s first three scream movies at Halloween parties for the past 30 years. After a lot of laundry this weekend, I went through the series in the right way and came to a surprising conclusion. Scream is the most consistent trilogy in movie history.

Each entry is dangerous and each does its own thing.original scream Borrowing from the psychological horror of the 1970s, Scream 2 A parody of the 1980s co-edited horror comedy Scream 3 Hollywood speaks to itself in the guise of a meta-slasher movie.

I heard something bad Scream 3, And I can imagine it landing muddy decades ago. But in 2021, we are watching a movie made by Weinstein with one big big message. That is, the Hollywood producer type that preys on women is secretly at the heart of all the problems. This is not an important range. This is literally the gist of the film, and in conclusion, the framework of the whole trilogy.

I enjoy the current “art house horror” surge, but despite mentioning Jay, Silent Bob and Creed, the Scream trilogy is more timely than many contemporaries. I feel it. — —Chris Plant

Before sunrise

 Richard Linklater's

My partner and I have been dating for over a year correct Before the pandemic began, we learned a lot about each media diet during that era. I love Korean new wave movies, esoteric sci-fi horror, Japanese anime and superhero movies. They love nostalgic young adult dramas, true crime documentaries, musicals and romance movies. Naturally, this means a lot of negotiations about what we are seeing together.

This weekend I introduced them to one of my favorites: Richard Linklater’s 1995 Romance Drama Before sunrise Starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.I’ve been a big fan of Before movies since I first saw it Before midnight The last time I saw it in the theater in 2013 was a few years ago Before sunrise First time at a good friend’s house. Living in the post-CoVID, post-Brexit world, seeing the whirlwind romance of Celine (Delpy) and Jesse (Hawk) elapses during a beautiful summer day in Vienna makes Halcyon even more special. You can feel the precious time capsule of the times. It feels infinitely lighter and endless than our present. My partner, who loved it, asked if he had never traveled abroad before the pandemic and regretted not having the opportunity to have a romance like Celine or Jesse. My answer was no. When I watched the movie again for the first time in a long time and remembered something, it was how lucky I was to find a loved one in this world and be loved in return. I found mine. — Toussaint Egan

Carol & Tuesday Is a sweet anime about two teenage girls, Tuesday’s runaway and orphan Carol. They combine a common love for music and try to make it as a musician. Oh, that will happen in the future … and on Mars? (It’s interesting, except that they’re still using Instagram). The swirl of ideas is a nice blend of vulnerable musicians trying to make it bigger and a reflection on rapidly evolving technology. The setting is gorgeous and bright, and most of the futuristic elements are presented as positive enhancements of society.I have only a few episodes Carol & Tuesday It’s exactly the kind of show you need to brighten your mood. — Petranara Durovich

Soprano Season 1

One of the things I noticed while watching the first season of Sopranos Approximately 20 years after the television first appeared and changed forever, all that makes it really good is that it’s actually really hard to talk about. For example, “James Gandolfini’s deep eyes have an absolutely fascinating way to get from the sinister dark pool to the river of emotions in seconds,” “very funny,” and sell someone at the show. Is difficult. We see men refuse to allow toxic masculinity to tear them apart. “

These are not new observations, but what’s great Sopranos Is that they can feel new to you..When you ask me, the show is spoiler prevention, because the magic of it isn’t what happens (for example, I know about every split finale and some big deaths), every character What it looks like Feeling, And how to set each character on an irreparable course where those emotions change the history of television. — Joshua Libera

For some reason, with the movie Judd Apatow, starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. Wet Hot American Summer And role model Director David Wain, who was completely bombed in 2012, quickly became obscured. what happened?It’s really impossible to say that a movie is random and anonymous Horrible boss And What a family Popped during the same window of Aniston’s career. Maybe the question was that this was for adults?

Specifically, an adult weirdo.Brings the same strange personality as Wet hot In keeping with traditional romantic comedy templates, the film continues only for couples forced to withdraw from New York City after the financial crisis to find comfort in the New Age commune. Intentional community — Called Elysium.Justin Theroux plays the leader Seth, Jordan Peele is the resident Stoner, Kathryn Hahn is the radical vegan, Alan Alda is the founder of the elder, and Brooklyn 99Joe Lo Truglio appears as a nudist winemaker / novelist wearing what I think is a huge fake penis prosthesis, but if not, Joe Lo Truglio Congratulations. The big questions they ask themselves about their dream life off-the-grid, and what we do with our lives, are ripe for Wayne’s accurate comedy and reflexive storytelling. And the movie is noisy. Wanderlust You can find sneaky commentary by staging the McMansion scene where all the walls are covered with TV. Or it can cause blunt trauma, like the scene where Rudd practices the worst dirty talk in human history. Like the good twigs of Ayahuasca, the movie is a strange trip with important destinations. No one had seen it in 2012, but it’s a rare movie I watch over and over again. — —Matt patch

Based on a concept created by Bruce Lee and produced by Shannon Lee and Justin Lin Warrior It was renewed in the third season in April. So this weekend felt like a great time to see the entire first season of the 10 episodes. Warrior Set in San Francisco in the late 1870s, it focuses primarily on San Francisco’s Chinatown and the powerful tongs that control it. As soon as Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji) comes to San Francisco in search of his sister, he begins hop-waiting. Because everyone knows he’s a bad fighter. And when he learned that his sister, who came to San Francisco, was married to the leader of Chinatown’s rival Tong, Longi Gee.

There are many dramas and actions, Warrior When they navigate life in the late 1870s, they are driven by that complex character. It’s all a precursor to the catastrophic Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. This is part of the history often overlooked in the American education system. — —Nicole Carpenter

The Way of the Househus (((The Way of the Househus).

The legendary yakuza

My wife is really crazy about anime, but I’m not.But The Way of the Househus It was the right kind of bonker to pull me in. (It certainly helps that there are only five chapters, and that each chapter consists of several short vignettes sewn into episodes of 15-20 minutes).

Netflix based on the manga of the same name by Kousuke Oono The Way of the Househus Is a healthy Slice of Life anime that tells the story of Tatsu, the feared yakuza leader known as the “immortal dragon” in his previous life. They then retired from organized crime because of their simple existence as a housewife for his wife, Miku. He is now spending his days applying the skills he learned as a mafia boss to household chores such as washing, washing dishes and handling cockroaches.

With a simple premise, you can play everyday situations in a cheerful and elegant way, like when Tatsu and Miku are test-driving a car. “Look carefully and be prepared for anything,” says Miku. Tatsu led us to imagine random people on the street as a masked hitman who whiplashes pistols and grenade launchers.

It can be said that it is too direct for the adaptation of manga. The show isn’t a typical anime, but mainly consists of static scenes that are animated like visual novels. But when I was laughing out loud as Tatsu’s father-in-law was trying to deepen his bond in a catch game, I didn’t really care. —Samit Sarkar

White snake

The arrival of spectacular Chinese animation New gods: Nezah reborn I have followed several pop culture paths. I have studied Chinese mythology and classical literature to understand where these stories come from, and have seen more and more Chinese animations to get more of the same kind of vast and intense storytelling. I did. 2019s White snake It looked like a natural movie to the watchlist, as it is another popular Chinese legend that the same director adopted for CG animation. Nata reincarnated.. And like that movie, it’s visually amazing, full of action and surprise, and very, very emotional. Most of the movies are flashbacks. Looking back on the memory of the old devil trapped, he fell in love with a brave and heroic young man about his horrific enemies trying to assassinate, and as he was about to die in the process. But the best part of the movie is in the margins. In particular, it’s an encounter with the weirdest and most skin-crawling interpretation of the fox spirit I’ve ever seen on the screen. — —Tasha Robinson
