Is Orphan Black still eligible for TV show this year? If so, the show itself + Tatiana Maslany best TV performance. Also, Schitt's Creek.

This Year In Film / Re: Us

Daniel Lupi as UPM!!

Monkeypaw Productions indeed... In this movie everything comes with a catch.
Peele is swerving the tone around psychological bends that could crash on any beat, and instead it spirals into itself, replicating. It's so funny, but you dread to laugh.

jenkins mentioned above, twin peaks prod design, and that's also Ruth De Jong, a PA on CWBB and Inherent Vice's art director. You'll spot her style throughout all the fake brands. IV'z Burgle-can whimsy now a cheering Port-a-Shell.

This is gonna be a fun one to talk about.

I am very excited for time travel and butterfly effects and time loops. I want it. But I'm pretending it won't happen because I don't want to be disappointed.

The Door was even better then I remembered it. had me crying like a child just now, lol

We are all talking about who will live and end up on the throne, but I'm thinking we'll get at least a couple of more "holy shit"-payoffs and twists in the end. the night king will probably talk , and we'll learn about his motives. Could it be one of the bigger holy shit-moments in the show? Also there has to be something more to Bran's time traveling. I mean, in the end of The Door the three eyed raven tells him that he's not ready yet. he has to fuck it up somehow, right? the mad king's "burn them all"-theory is fun and make a lot of sense.

I think these theories are way off base.

Very likely yes lol. But until we get something firmer it's all I can do is theorize.

I think these theories are way off base. This is Tarantino's Inherent Vice-cum-Boogie Nights, I think it'll be more about celebrating a specific era and then wallowing in its demise. [...] It was aways said that the Manson murders were just a part of the backdrop, so it makes sense that that's the painful event which triggers/culminates the massive shift in their lives as we hurtle into the third act. If this speculation is true, maybe (hopefully?) we don't even see the violence this time around, just it's aftermath.

Hmm, it's just that even as a backdrop in IV the cult plays a major role in its themes.  Here we have the family in play and Spahn ranch cast with notable names. The OUATIH you describe is closest to the movie I'd want to see QT illustrate, where Charlie doesn't seem too dissimilar from our co-stars, their narcissism and pretender crowns exposed. It's just a teaser, obvi, but Sharon Tate would, in this sort of dichotomy, represent the innocent idyll (veneer?) of Hollywood.
