That porn on Netflix isn’t even that sexy

In 2020, an erotic thriller called 365 daysreferred to as “Polish” for short Fifty shades of gray“Topped the list of Netflix’s top 10 movies, a position it has been leading for weeks.

The trashy, action-packed soap has been labeled as one of the year’s worst movies, despite its popularity. But the movie wasn’t just considered bad. It is so problematic that advocacy groups have spoken out about it and there is a movement demanding it be removed from the streaming service.

Naturally, the movie got a sequel instead.

365 days: This day debuted this week and have returned to #1. I can’t say I’m surprised. Just disappointed.

The truth is, there was a part of me that was looking forward to seeing the sequel. I knew it was going to be bad. But I’m going to spend an entire afternoon working to see how much light-hearted porn is. Not too angry about it.

Plus, the instinct to be shy about this kind of content is always annoying, even if we’re talking about people who really like it. Fifty shades of gray or those who are eager to invest in this type of content — though 365 days: This day boasts the loosest and most ridiculous interpretation of the word “plot” I’ve seen in a long time, all for the purpose of stringing together a series of love scenes and montages of the brooding sexy person.

But it’s a franchise that’s neither too bold nor serious enough to be escapist. Or let loose. Or a satisfying viewing experience for viewers of the genre with a sincerity and passion we’ve been conditioned to mock or scorn. It’s not even that hot.

There’s nothing wrong with craving sexy TV. Popular fandom for Outlander prove that. Rich screenshots of steamy scenes from Netflix Excellence on my entire social media feed back up that argument. There have been a lot of manifestos complaining about the horrors being returned in the recent season of Bridgerton. Our deepest political opinion is that television needs more butts.

It’s sex in 365 days franchise has made it famous. The first movie went viral on TikTok as people filmed themselves watching the blushing scenes. Have you ever had to stay up until midnight and sneak down to the TV in your basement to watch a jumbled Cinemax feed from your cable box to watch the light-hearted porn that’s currently streaming to Netflix alongside Schitt’s Creek and Fuller House. Children today have it too easily.

Maybe we’re all just desensitized now, but in 365 days: This day, Not even that aspect is appealing. The love scenes are all set with funny dramatic music. Most of them take place in the dark. Confusingly, the vast majority of them, the leads are still full, or at least most, clothed. (#MoreButts2022!) They were all shot in disgust, which is par for the course. However, it is difficult to continue to justify the appeal.

Then there’s the plot, the part where the problematic aspect comes into play. The first film revolves around a handsome member of a Mafia family who kidnaps a beautiful girl, and in an illustration of Stockholm syndrome or a controversial rape and rape, ties her up and seduces her until she finally gives in to his lust for rough and urgent sex. (Here, consent is a loose concept.)

It’s understandable that a lot of people were appalled by the movie’s popularity with that horrifying plot. In the new sequel, they get married (WTF?). He still treats her like shit. Either way, she’s still having rough sex. Then there’s a hot gardener, a secret twins, and a bounty hunt, with some strings attached.

So bad! So bad! And, now, the most popular series on Netflix.

I can’t believe how Olivia Wilde reacted!

This week, Olivia Wilde was at CinemaCon, an annual Hollywood event where big stars and directors preview their upcoming films for theater owners to get excited about filming their movies. surname. She was there to present Don’t worry, honeyThe upcoming steamy relationship drama, which she directed, starring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, has had armies of Styles fans braced for chilly showers.

She looked beautiful in her blue velvet outfit and was clearly excited. During her introduction, a man walked onto the stage and dropped a manila envelope. It is labeled “personal and confidential.”

“Is this for me?” she asked. “Is this a scenario?” She opened the envelope. That’s not an unsolicited script, which in its own right would be very inappropriate. It’s custody papers from her ex-boyfriend’s legal team, Jason Sudeikis.

At this point, Wilde had already thrown the papers on the ground. She stared at the audience of the conference, a gaze ominously empty but all-encompassing, as if to summon the entire living force of the room. She pointed one hand toward the back door of the great hall, which immediately closed. The other, she circled overhead, creating a bonfire that eventually engulfed the curtain of the stage. At this point, her eyes were bleeding.

Infrequently, random members of the audience began to fly up to the rafters, screaming in fear. As chaos broke out, Wilde let out a piercing groan, a violent explosive sound that reverberated throughout the world. Children are still crying. Dogs can no longer hear.

I was just joking, obviously. Wilde quickly examined the papers and, supposedly, realized what they were. Without missing a beat, she continued her performance. It was an act of amazing composure and grace in a situation where, as outlined above, the best of us would have reacted with supernatural fury.

A “source” close to Sudeikis reported that he did not know that the papers would be served in such an outrageous manner. I still can’t get over it.

I won’t stop talking about Home in the real world

The Real World Homecoming: New Orleans is my religious text. That’s what I live for every week. It’s my oxygen in a world where I feel like I’m drowning.

You wouldn’t think there would be many ideas about reuniting the cast of the actual series two decades later. But the way the cast was able to process their experience with emotional intelligence while still being so raw is fascinating, especially with the perfect specimen and reluctant gay symbol Danny, the evil TV’s most ethereal dreamer Julie and the endless mystery of Tokyo aka David back together.

But I have forgotten how much of a star Melissa is, and please forgive me for that, my queen. She is a spark plug. She is wise. She is a fun and powerful font, with an ease on camera. Two episodes of this season have aired so far, and I’m only left with the conclusion that if Melissa doesn’t get to be on the talk show at the end I’m not sure why television even exists.

Next year’s Oscars will be named

Oh baby, the movie is about a group of October football fans trying to fulfill their dream of going to the Super Bowl to meet Tom Brady, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sally Field, Rita Moreno and Tom Brady himself is real, and I write about it in my diary every day.
