Aktenzeichen XY ungelost

This is from a German true crime series where they hire actors to portray the victims and perpetrators of crimes in the hopes the criminals can be IDed by the viewer (sort of like America's Most Wanted, but the German version started long before and is still running today).

Here, two actresses play a mother and her grown daughter who suffer through a home invasion. The mother is barefoot, and there are some very nice shots of her bare feet getting tied up. The daughter is wearing socks.

The scene is long, about ten minutes, and it's very intense, showing extreme violence. You can see/download it here.

"Danger, Will Robinson, danger!"

The Robinson family is getting lost again. This reboot of Lost In Space will be on Netflix this coming April. I watched the original series when it was in reruns back in the 1970s, and I loved it. Yes, it got very silly at times, but as a kid I enjoyed the vibrant sense of adventure that the original series had.

Molly Parker, from Deadwood, plays the Robinson family matriarch, and I think it's perfect casting. I've always liked Parker in everything she does. I'm looking forward to this one.

A gift for me?

In the second season episode of Salem, titled Blood Kiss, the Countess Marburg is presented a gift by her son.

It's a young barefoot woman, tightly bound hand and foot and gagged. The Countess is quite pleased with her new toy (or snack?). It's a brief scene, about thirty seconds, but I like it.

I was unable to find the name of the actress playing the damsel, but The Countess is played by none other than Lucy Lawless, who had many good scenes herself back when she was Xena. You can see the meeting for yourself right here.

Black Panther

I saw Black Panther over the weekend, and enjoyed it very much. I liked this character when I first saw him in Captain America: Civil War, and immediately wanted to know as much as I could about him. Black Panther does all of that and more. It's a great superhero movie, with loads of the thrills that we come to expect from this genre.

But Black Panther doesn't cut corners on the characterizations. Everybody here feels like a real human being (there's a great cast here) with realistic goals, even the villain. And this makes Black Panther all the more enthralling because you care for them. I'm looking forward to Avengers: Infinity War (which this movie hints at) next. Make mine Marvel.

About that Red Sparrow

OK, so Jennifer Lawrence...you know, from the Hunger Games movie...re-teams with her Hunger Games director (the guy with the same last name as hers who helmed the last three HG flicks) for this spy thriller that opens on March 2, which is just about a couple of weeks from now.

Various pictures and a GIF have surfaced showing Jennifer Lawrence in various stages of bondage, including one scene where she's bound completely naked. And I just realized that I really should try and see this one. Thanks to posters over at Brian's Page for this heads up.

You can see the GIF for yourself right here.

A Cure For Wellness

A Cure For Wellness was an interesting and creepy film from director Gore Verbinski, who also gave us the first Ring movie, as well as having directed the first three Pirates films with Johnny Depp.

Dane DeHann stars as an executive who's sent to find the CEO of his company, who's vacationing at a spa in the Alps. But the spa is more than it appears.

DeHann meets Hannah (Mia Goth) a young woman who lives at the spa.

Hannah winds up helping DeHann to unravel the mystery at the center of the spa. But she puts herself in danger by doing so.

It should also be noted that Mia Goth as Hannah goes barefoot throughout the entire film. Even when she's at a lavish party, clad in a new dress, she's still barefoot. My kind of girl, and my kind of movie. Warning: this movie contains some graphic gore.
