Interesting comments from Chris Pratt about Passengers, surprised that the critics ran with the whole Date Rape thing, & that production team etc hadnt seen this coming. So I'm wondering what will happen with mother!. A true indie film can have a contentious storyline, or even a show like Big Little lies, but it needs careful treatment. Do you think its been long enough for the Jen Law distaste to have subsided? or will mother! need to be careful it doesnt get a critical mauling as well?

I can’t imagine how Pratt was surprised. Passengers is creepy AF. He claims no one in the test screenings voiced a concern. Did they watch what I watched? Must have been a bunch of men.

As for mother! - it will get more leeway because it’s an Indie and it’s Aronofsky, of course. His movies are known for being confrontational and making viewers uncomfortable. But the thing is, if Jen and Darren are still together for this movie, the relationship will play heavily in people’s minds - tabloids will be sure to highlight their status and people will be watching a movie where a 48-year old (Javier Bardem) is in a relationship with a 26-year old (Jen) being directed by the actress’ 48-year old boyfriend. And if this is two hours of Jen being tortured by Javier, how does that reflect on the dynamics of Darren the boyfriend towards Jen?

And yes - the “true” cinematic connoisseur and movie critic will be so above all this and will focus on the “art,” but the rest of us average movie goers will be going “WTF?!”

Misogyny, ageism, “casting couch”, “midlife crisis”, “daddy issues”, etc. - all of these fun topics will be up for discussion. It’s going to be a mess and the one losing will be Jen. That asshole thrives on this shit.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix first set photo speaks of danger

The first photo from the set of X-Men: Dark Phoenix has surfaced online. The image teases the first look at the technology-advanced training facility called the Danger Room, which was briefly shown in two previous chapters of the franchise – X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Apocalypse.

In the last chapter, X-Men: Apocalypse, Charles Xavier’s team of mutants, including Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler and Quicksilver, led by Mystique and Beast were shown undergoing training in the Danger Room. The last scene of the movie ended with robots, and Sentinels emerging from the walls of the Danger Room.

Sherlock & Molly’s Wedding day

Sherlock was happily rehearsing the waltz with John while Mary was tying a big yellow bow on her little Sherry’s ponytail. Jennifer Hooper (Molly’s sister) rushed into the hall.

Jen: Sherlock, come with me right now!

Sherlock: (smirked) That sounds very much like an order to me, Jen. You should know by now that I don’t cope well with orders, my dear sister in law.

Jen: (rolled her eyes as she dragged Sherlock by the arm) Not now, Sherlock. If you still want to get married today, come with me. Molly needs you.

Sherlock: (panicked) Molly? What’s wrong with her? Is she alright?

Jen: She just broke down, maybe it’s her hormones. She won’t let anyone touch her, we still need to do the hair and make up. We don’t have much time.

Mary: Ah..The wedding nerves, perhaps, I had that too, remember, John?
(To Sherlock) You should go talk to her, calm her down a bit.

Sherlock: (hesitated) But is it bad luck for a groom to see his bride before the wedding ceremony?

John: Since when did you believe in luck, Sherlock?

Sherlock: I don’t. Can’t really understand why people still stupidly do.

John: Then, bloody hell, go!


Sherlock walked quietly into his bride’s powder room. The 28 week-pregnant Molly was standing by the window in her simple but beautiful wedding gown. Sherlock wrapped his arms around her and kissed the side of her neck.

Sherlock: What’s wrong, Molly? Please don’t tell me you change your mind.

Molly: (chuckled but with teary eyes) You should be the one who reconsider your decision, Sherlock, not me.

Sherlock: (puzzled) Where is that come from? I will never change my mind, Molly. Now tell me, what’s wrong?

Molly: (turned to faced him) Couldn’t you just deduce that?

Sherlock: You made me promise not to deduce you, remember? You said I could just ask.

Molly: (grinned faintly) Well yes, thank you for always keeping your promise, Sherlock.

Sherlock: (wiped the tears off her cheeks with his fingers) Why are you crying?

Molly: (rested her forehead on his firm chest) It’s our wedding day and I look bloody fat and ugly, Sherlock.

Sherlock: Who said so?

Molly: ‘I’ said so. I couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror. Are you sure you still want to marry Molly Hooper, the beach-ball?

Sherlock: Beach-ball? Such a horrid image, you invented for yourself. (Sighed) You are pregnant, Molly. You are going through the maternity processes. For me, the natural development of your body is amazingly beautiful and addictive.

Molly: Addictive??

Sherlock: Yes, your effects on me are stronger than any kinds of drug, Molly.

Molly: Since when you did you become a sweet talker, Sherlock?

Sherlock: (hold her closer and rest his chin on her head) You know me, I am not and never will be anything close to sweet, Molly. I am just telling you the truth.

Molly: (looked up at him with seductive doe eyes) You really think that I am beautiful and addictive?

Sherlock: Affirmative. Now you’d better stop looking at me like that or we will never get to leave this room, Molly.

Molly: (grinned) What about a single kiss? Can I please have that from my groom?

Sherlock: Since when did you need to ask?

Sherlock then placed a sweet lingering kiss on her lips. He could hardly contain his groan as the kiss was warmly welcomed and encouraged by his soon to be wife.

With Molly little whimpering of protest, Sherlock had to force himself to let go of her curvy body when the knocks on the door interrupted them.

Sherlock: I will be waiting for you at the altar, Molly. And tonight you shall have more than just a kiss.

Molly: (grinned) That sounds very tempting, Sherlock, very tempting.
