How do you become a voter? Asking for a friend of course, duh!

Do Tell said...

Netflix is on my shitlist after they cancelled Santa Clarita Diet. However, I do so love Dead To Me.

sandybrook said...

Probably Netflix since they produce more movies that the rest of them.

Do Tell said...

I know they're pushing "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" for Oscar consideration. It would be cool to see Efron get some Academy recognition, he really was good, even if the rest of the movie was debatable, although I liked it. I'd like to see Malkovich get a nom out of it also.

@dotell Dead to Me makes me so happy. Linda and Christina Applegate!!! I also think that Christina Applegate is so underrated. She is phenomenal actress.

Regina said...

Do Tell....ZAc was great in the movie but as someone who has seen the real documentary of Ted Bundy with all the graphic photos and videos, i did not like the movie at all. THe netflix movie made him look like he wasn't that bad of a guy and actually,to me, tried to come from a sympathetic view. Ted bundy was the devil, and they made him look like a misunderstood ladies man. If you don't know the real story of the horrific sick murder he was then you'd probably think he wasn't that bad by watching the Netflix movie. If my loved one was a victim i'd be livid

Unknown said...

Applegate was underrated on Married w Children too.

Flashy Vic said...

@Regina. My wife, who isn't really in to serial killers and all that, was watching it with me and near the end said, "So did he do it or not then?" I tactfully told her, "Of course he fucken did it, ya daft cow! What the fuck have you just been watching for the past two hours?!"

But it did try to make him look, if not exactly sympathetic, then slightly hard done by.

I enjoyed it though.

Brayson87 said...

Sounds like standard fare, voting and democracy are built on booze and hookers.

kelli grrrl said...

@Vic ... sooooo, after you called your wife a daft cow, did she box your ears? Just seems like a very British-wife way of letting you know she’s displeased with your verbiage. 😉

Brayson87 said...

@kelli, Irish women aren't as easily triggered as US women when it comes to casual cursing, they just curse back. It's one of the things that generally makes them superior ;)

kelli grrrl said...

Brayson, from the description you gave, sounds like I’m probably part Irish. 🍀😆

Flashy Vic said...

@Kelli, it was all said in a good humoured way. She gets it. And is probably slowly poisoning me in revenge anyway.

Brayson87 said...

@Vic, That's every wife, it's no coincidence that most wives outlive their husbands. 😧

IrishEileen said...

I can vouch for what Brayson said!

Lucky13 said...

I'll admit to watching that Zac movie and getting excited when James Hetfield showed up playing a cop.

HeatherBee said...

@ Do Tell- I cannot believe they cancelled Santa Clarita Diet either! I hope the public outcry gets heard and we get a season 4- at least to tie up the loose ends. In a perfect world, it would find a forever home somewhere. I understand Netflix’s 3 season business model, but it’s been proven to be a popular show.

HDNYC said...

@lucky13 - WHOA had no idea James Hetfield is in this movie...need to watch now!!! He has the sexiest speaking voice.

Do Tell said...

"Extremely Wicked" was based on the book by Ted Bundy's girlfriend. The whole movie's aim was to show people why and how Bundy was able to fool Liz for so long and seduce all these victims. All they saw was the facade he wanted them to see, dressed up in a cleancut, handsome, fairly charming package. This is what made Bundy so dangerous and what the film was aiming to get across, which a lot of people don't seem to get. It never painted him as a saint or a good guy, or was begging people to sympathize with him. it was trying, clumsily, to show the audience how Bundy came across to the people he wanted to fool.

I saw a printed reaction to the movie that was from either a survivor or a relative of a Bundy victim (can't remember) who agreed that the movie didn't need to focus on the violence, and thinks it would have cheapened the movie. The TV move, Deliberate Stranger", didn't show much violence either.

What might have helped the movie would have been putting up a slate at the beginning of the movie, explaining who and what Ted Bundy was, and the number of women he murdered over X span of years. Then the audience could have had that in mind as they watched him put up the charming nice guy front he did to the people closest to him and the people he abducted. They also could have shown at least two of the times that Bundy snapped and threatened Liz, both times because she asked him about some suspicious items she'd found. That would have helped a lot.

Unknown said...

Netflix because they have their FYSee stuff (https://events.fyc.netflix.com/) going on now (Amazon had their’s last month).

rednoir said...

Hitchcock was once asked why he made his villains so attractive. "How else", he answered, "could they get close to their victims?"

DontLookAtMe said...

I worked in the crime lab in Tallahassee, and I agree. They keep and entire wall of his evidence. He was a pure monster, and there's no misunderstanding about it. That movie made him seem like a victim.

Unknown said...

I'm from Tallahassee, too. Ted Bundy was a vicious serial killer who beat women to a bloody pulp with a log while they were sleeping. Was this in the Netflix movie that you want Zac Efron to win an award for? No. Ted Bundy seemed like a great guy in that film and you want it to get an award? Hmmm. I hope a vicious serial killer never terrorizes your town and then a movie comes along and paints them sympathetically and strangers want the actor to be rewarded for it.

Do Tell said...

If you left the film with the impression that it showed Bundy as a great guy, then it did what it set out to do. The whole point, as I said, was that Bundy put on a facade that fooled everyone, looks like it still is, especially if you didn't pay attention to the scene where he wrote Hacksaw on the prison window to explain how he decapitated his victim, or the scene where he whacked a woman across the head with a crowbar. The audiences did not need to be spoonfed violence. But it seems that a lot of people still missed the point that the movie was making.

Unknown, you can throw whatever irrational tantrums you want, but Efron did a spectacular job with the role, and his performance deserves recognition. He did not write the script. Learn to differentiate between the performance and the actual criminal. Perhaps you should write a letter to the Academy asking that they revoke Anthony Hopkins' Oscar for playing an insanely violent cannibal.

I dont know how to really thank Dr. PATRICK for what he did for me. My Name is Libby Eva from UK, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR PATRICK, the chief priest of all spell caster.a At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr PATRICK told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to DR PATRICK. You can contact him through the following means
