2020.09.02 18:00 steelstepladder VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's Rate!

Intro Please Watch

Remember when VH1 played music retrospectives around the clock? I sure do and I miss it terribly. If you weren't around for the series at it's peak, it's easy to miss how great these specials were. Just by looking at some of their lists at face value the order of the songs could be a little wonky to say the least, even if the spots were chosen by votes. But when you step back from the specifics and look at the big picture, you would get an extremely diverse and thorough crash course into the trends and music of the time. You'd get the indie darlings, the headlining acts, the flashes in the pans, the award winners, and the novelty acts all in one. It's better to not think of their lists as statements of overall quality, but more as the definitive songs that created the soundtrack of the decade. If you don't know much about a particular genre or decade of music, their lists are an incredible first step into discovering so much great music. Me and my lovely cohost u/pearllouise will be hosting this great look into the past where we will be rating their greatest songs of the 90's list! From TRL pop to gangsta rap to grunge it's all here! Throw on some flannel to get into the mood because things are about to get totally tubular!

A brief history of the series

VH1 started their "The Greatest" series in 2002 when they counted down the 100 sexiest artists of all time (number one was Madonna, of course it was Madonna). The early specials were not really what they would be known for as they still had a bit of time before they found their groove. Mostly the earlier episodes would be more along the lines of "50 Greatest Teen Idols" and "100 Most Outrageous Celebrity Moments" and stuff like that. Early "The Greatest" episodes did have their moments like their list of hard rock bands, but when I see people talk about their favorite countdowns I mostly see people bring up the late 2000's episodes. The first decade end retrospective came out in 2006 when the counted down the 100 Greatest Songs of the 80's and this was the first time I stumbled upon the series and I immediately fell in love. The series would continue on this trend with 90's and 00's retrospectives as well as counting down the greatest one hit wonders of both the 80's and the 90's.
Luckily enough for us, somebody was kind enough to upload almost the entire"100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80's" special onto Youtube so if you're curious to see what they were like feel free to check that out. If you don't want to watch, imagine 100 bite sized One Hit Wonderland episodes by Todd in the Shadows and you kind of get the idea. As a matter of fact Todd has mentioned in the past that the specials were influential on his content and the phrase "One Hit Wonderland" is actually mentioned several times throughout the 80's retrospective. Most of the series has unfortunately been lost to time which makes it all the more important that we look back at one of the most popular countdowns they did, and rerank all the songs in Popheads image.

2020.08.12 03:31 Issaltar1 A retelling of the worst Ghosts of Saltmarsh game [extra long]

Hi there table top horror story enthusiasts! I’ll be retelling a story I posted in broken fragments while this train wreck of a game (and group) was happening. Now that all the details are here I will try my best to write as many of the details from memory. First a bit of backstory.
I’m a semi-long term dnd player starting off in HS playing 4e (yeah I know was awful that’s another story for another time about having a killer DM) i hadn’t been in a group for anywhere between 12-15 years since then and was really looking for a group. I usually DM but I was really in the mood to roll up a PC and just play a character, that’s when my buddy (who will be known as The Barb from now on) told me about a game of Ghosts of Saltmarsh he just started to play in. The DM was apparently a Con friend from a local convention here that I frequent. In hind sight this should have been my first red flag knowing the DM but I thought nothing of it, I just wanted to play a PC.
I am told we are all 3rd lvl so decided to roll up my first rogue ever. A third level goblin scout. I tend to hate rogue play in video games. They feel too slow to get to where I need to be and I can’t do face tank shenanigans or just nuke baddies from afar with spellcasters. Decided to go scout from xanthars hoping to play a sort of bounty hunter who can track anyone anywhere by going ranger while using fog cloud for a sort of smokescreen for the ambush like gameplay of the subclass. I should mention I’m a bit of a munchkin/minmaxer this will come in later.
The final, and arguably one of the if not the most important detail in this story to begin to understand the atmosphere here, was that this game was taking place at a Norse Pagan religious center and the DM was their Thul(Thule?) basically he was like a shaman/spirit talker for the religious community. Lots of heavy drinking was done here to the point where DM gloats about being an alcoholic.
I will introduce the characters as what I’ll refer to them while in character and give them fake ooc character names for the sake of anonymity because christ almighty there is a lot. The Dm (ooc Bob) and the rogue (me).
Upon arrival I meet our party, the monk (ooc name is Fred), the barb(ooc Mark), the ranger(Ooc name Jen) the druid(ooc Mary), morridon bronzebeard (Ooc Pierre) and the sorc (Vlad). I would like to give them more interesting names in game but the most rp we got was the barbarian loxodon who had a sound board of elephant noises on his phone and could apparently smell when people were in heat. THIS should have been my clue number two but my dumb ass stayed willfully ignorant.
Some extra back story on our players that will pop up later is, both Fred and Jen are in a relationship AND end up making me their adopted son basically, because of personal reasons, this leads to drama later ooc. Mary is a mother of two teenagers, a paraplegic 14 y/o daughter (ooc Alice) and a 13 y/o son. Vlad is Marys brand new boyfriend she met at the religious property.
With all that lets get started
We all sit down for our session zero meet. The most interesting thinngs that happen are as follows:
  1. The barb discovers female druid healer is in heat
  2. Fred has two characters die. Once by his own fault and second because dm just is failing to push the party to go save him. Pulling bs out of his ass afterwards based on barbs backstory
  3. My goblin tricks morridon bronzebeard into trusting him.
After a fight against a knight of the people who massacred barbs tribe we call it for the night with Fred rolling up a third character. Everything so far is going well...I was a fool because this is when the shitstorm begins starting with both Jen and Fred.
You see both Fred and Jen apparently didn’t have a great relationship and, in hindsight, Jen was REALY into me despite both of us being in relationships at the time. Jen decided she wanted to take a break with Fred and Fred goes into a whole drunken depression that spills over into the dnd groups fb chat. It becomes super cringe and he is kicked out of the group by DM. The two of them officially break up and from then on I get put in the center of their fued out of game at every event till Fred is officially kicked from the grounds after something happened at a Halloween party on the property.
The second session oh boy this is when player agency BEGINS to take a back seat.
We continue the storyline and get roped up chartering a boat to cross the sea. Apparently, the captain is transporting cargo. While we are sailing we notice strange skull tattoos on the crewmen’s necks. Seems weird but we don’t think anything of it. It is at this time DM begins to boast about how good of a player he is even though both Vlad and I were at the games he was talking about and know he is lying through his teeth. I just roll my eyes and don’t call him on his bs because of wanting to keep peace and this isn’t my house.
We sail till night and a thick fog rolls in and the crew get scared. A dragon turtle pops up next to the ship able to speak common, has the same skull tattoos around his neck that the crew have, and tells us that the captain is stealing cargo from a pirate conglomerate or something basically it’s the pirate organization from PotC 3 with the pieces of 8. Dragon turtle proceeds to cast magic and two of the tattoos disappear blowing the head of two crew mates.
We roll init with me going first and the pirate captain of our boat going second. I decide to use thieves cant to try and come up with a plan of attack with our pirate captain. I should have known this wouldn’t have worked. I knew DM was a muscle bound idiot who cannot figure any use for thieves cant at all. Anyways, pirate captain doesn’t take the hint and then, apparently is a lvl 18 and a 9th lvl caster; proceeds to summon...something I don’t remember what which that summon then casts planar shift and whisks the dragon turtle to the elemental plane of water. We win the fight with none of us doing anything just DMPC self gratification and Bob gloating, showing off his dice rolls to Mark. We hit 4th level and I take my first level of ranger, I regret taking this because of my minmax munchkin self. We get new weapons with the best going to mark (a great axe with 1d6 acid damage bonus) this will be significant later.
Our next session comes after a month of not playing and more drama ensues, this time with Vlad and Mary. See Mary is a toxic ass individual who is nothing more than a party animal, walks all over people and has total disregard for anyone but herself. I’m pretty sure she pushed Jen into breaking up with Fred and trying to get in bed with me. Essentially, she is there dating one of the leaders (Vlad) of the community for the power trip, getting drunk and high in front of her two teen children.
On this night, drama with someone outside the group sparks a shitstorm. While this is going on Alice, Mary’s daughter, is wanting to play dnd. She has watched dozens of dnd videos on youtube, read a few threads, and is genuinely enthusiastic about playing her very first DnD game and character. Vlad was helping her roll up her bard until the shitstorm hit and I volunteered to help out being a DM and taking pity on the situation. While this was going on I would like to mention that Jen knew I was having some relationship issues and I was trying to figure out how to reconcile with my S.O. At the time. She said that she would help me out by trying to make my GF at the time jealous. Me being the autistic dumb fuck I am (have high functioning ASD) have zero idea what the hell she means by this. I spend an extra hour in a half chasing down Vlad because he has Alices’ character sheet on his phone giving me a headache. we start late because of this. Vlad doesn’t play in the game and Mary comes in drunk af 2-3 hours into the game.
Keep in mind, Jen has, also, already found someone else to date. An old hs friend of hers I met in a WoW classic discord she invited me to. Just before we start the game, Jen grabs my hand in hers and starts slow dancing with me cheek to cheek. I am genuinely confused and ask what she is doing. She says “dancing with you.” I just go with it thinking “ok, she is just overly friendly/taking pity on me because she was cheated on by her ex husband after they had a kid.” (Yeah theres a lot of fucked up personal baggage in this group.) I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The session begins with us getting to the town we were sailing to. We discover people are missing and one of those people is the local black smith. A dwarf with legendary smithing skills, and, when I say legendary I mean legendary. You see he has weapons on his walls that he made with his own hands and anvil. Not just any weapons, legendary weapons. Now any sane DM would you know, at least make it harder to get a hold of a legendary weapon or, you know, a +3 weapon, especially seeing we all got weapons after the dragon turtle fight and this is immediately after that whole shit show. No, we IMMEDIATELY get these legendary weapons and they aren’t just any legendary weapons. You remember me bringing up that we were at a norse pagan commune at the start of the story? Yeah well DM thought “Hey! I see Mjolnir is in DnD why don’t I give the players Mjolnir? That’d be cool right?” That’s right Morridon Bronzebeard got Whelm at 4th level. Me, the goblin rogue, immediately looks for wave because, once again, I’m a god damn munchkin and know how dumb the weapon is. I regret not taking fighter and going for champion for that 3rd level crit chance bonus. Btw DM ruled Wave had Finesse so that I could use it.
The rest of the party got moonblades with Jens’ (who was, at this point, white girl drunk off whiteclaw) getting a stat on the blade that gave her Pass without Trace 3/day. I bring this up because the next bit of fucking lunacy and DM stupidity happens. The DM gives the barb a homebrewed weapon called the Bonesaw.
The Bonesaw is the weapon I wrote about in the original post of ‘when the DM deviates from Ghosts of Saltmarsh’. For those of you who Don’t know/didn’t read that post here is what the bonesaw is. It is a vorpal blade with the voice of randy savage. Literally, he made the sword for the sole purpose of making randy savage jokes. This in and of itself is not bad, the issue lies in what the weapon does while unsheathed. The DM roleplays the Bonesaw into hating being sheathed and will hate the player it is attuned to for sheathing the blade. While the blade is unsheathed, he yells out to anyone trying to sneak or scout ahead yelling “HEY PEANUTHEAD!” causing ALL STEALTH CHECKS AUTO FAIL! I REPEAT! ALL! STEALTH CHECKS ! FAIL! So you know that pass without a trace he just gave Jen? Yeah pointless. You know that rogue scout he has who wants to go scout ahead and track shit as a bounty hunter? Yeah pointless. I get dicked over as rogue cause Dm wants to be funny not clever.
It is at this point I’m getting annoyed and I turn to Jen and make one of the biggest mistake of my life. “Hey you were going to do something to make my S.O. Jealous? What was that?” She takes that as a big time invitation to sexually harass me with Mary cheering her on and helping out. Literally, Jen gets up walks over to me sits on my lap, wraps her arms around my neck tells me to lift her shirt up in front of 4 other guys, Mary (Mary sees nothing wrong with this and is actively helping Jen harass me) and Alice (who is sitting on my right). Jen then takes my hand and puts it on her bareskin as she takes her shirt off and puts her breasts in my face. Like I said I have ASD and I freeze up not knowing what to do. I can’t look at her or anyone I’m staring at the table mortified by this turn of events while Mary starts twerking against my left arm. Mary then takes my phone and takes a picture of the scene and sends it to my S.O. I feel humiliated and shamed, I can’t even speak I’m so confused and mortified.
Alice is sitting right next to me and I feel even worse because I’m setting a horrible example for this 14 year old girl with these two trainwrecks of female rolemodels with this display, one being her own mother. We break and DM makes the situation with Alice worse. He brings up, in a drunken joke, that he is bringing in tomb of annihilation. Mark brings up the fact that ToA also means the death curse and I watch as Alice has her soul crushed. All enthusiasm in wanting to play dnd just dies, my DM instincts kick in and I’m angry. Bob proceeds to be a dumb fuck and go “Yeah I know! Isn’t it great?!” Only to not say he was kidding. We finished the night meeting barbs loxodon father who both Mark and I learn later is a lvl 23 barbarian ported from 3.5. I go home with Mark feeling absolutely horrid, Mary and Vlad leave compound and don’t play in anymore games along with Alice. I still feel terrible about possibly turning this poor 14 y/o girl off from ever wanting to play dnd ever again. Get home and take a long ass shower the next morning.
The final session is tamer but still has DM shittery written all over it.
Like I said we ended the last session being introduced to the barbarians father. A large loxodon who is there because his wife was captured by a bunch of lizard folk. We follow him into the next dungeon and have our first bout of combat. Everything is going alright we’re killing lizard men and then I have the brilliant idea (seeing my goblin has a 16 in intelligence) to try and use cube of force from wave to capture a lizardman commander to question later. Something happens with murderhobo barb daddy that makes DM go “he runs up to the cube and it dispells because he has a gem of antimagic field in his belt” and kills the commander.
Ooc I am beginning to get fed up with the game. I have had ,for 3 sessions in a row, my agency and my rp destroyed to the point where it is just not appealing to play a rogue. To recap, I can’t stealth, I can’t go off to scout even though that is my subclass, Thieves cant is useless amongst fellow rogues, and now I can’t even put a plan in motion before DM masterbatory god character kills my prisoner.
The party goes further into the dungeon and comes face to face with a giant lizard man and a bunch of commanders. We are in a deadly encounter fighting for out lives. The ranger is nearly struck down in combat left with 2 points of health. The DM makes a d100 roll and asks me if it’s higher or lower than 50. I guess wrong. The DM has his god character barbarian go into a blood rage prior to the d100 roll. What is a blood rage you ask? It is when a barbarian rages so hard he cannot discern friend from foe. The d100 roll was to see if he killed the ranger. I inadvertently killed another players character because of dm bullshittery. Not because I fumbled a roll, not because a plan back fired, because DM wanted to play an op character who could fuck the party over.
With that we finish combat with most of us wounded or dying, I’m the healthiest one using constant disengages so I decide, being a CN goblin rogue, to try my hand at pick pocketing. I look around seeing that everyone is preoccupied and Bobs barbarian epic level bullshit god character is facing away from me talking to Marks barbarian. I decide to try and take the moonblade from the dead ranger. Nat 20+ expertise in slight of hand. Super happy hoping that I finally beat the DM at something and can finally do my first rogue thing ever! I don’t care if I am caught later I just want to play a rogue. Dms bullshittery knowns no bounds as the barbarian god has eyes on the back of his head, his passive perception beating my slight of hand. Comes up and berates me for trying to take the blade and puts a stop to it takin everything away and carrying the body.
I am livid I have nothing else to do other than to be an npc drone to follow into a set path being railroaded by this pos dm character and other homebrewed bullshittery. I am legit shaking in frustration when this happened. I have an absurd tolerance for shit but DM finally broke me. I have my character leave party and start helping Jen roll up her new character. Horny mcBard a gay guy who wanted to have his ass filled with tentacles (no really, legit, the next thing we do is a tentacle rape scene with the bard enjoying it all in his ass). We take a break while rolling up characters, both Bob and Mark go to get food. While helping Jen roll up her new character she notices I’m tense and I explode, angry about how much bullshittery Bob is pulling. She then tells me I’m being an asshole and I give up defeated wanting to just go home but no car to drive away and too expensive to take an uber or lyft. I join up again making my god damn 37th heal bot of a heal domain cleric and basically save the party from their own idiocy and then leave the group.
As far as I know, after that last session, the group disbanded because Mark was thoroughly unhappy with the bs Bob was pulling and I don’t think they got replacement players after 5 players left.

2020.08.05 06:01 HollieSk8rGrrl Quick review of EVERY CC song from I and II (wall of text obviously!!)

God I love CC & have for years. I was gonna do III and Amnesty but it got a lil TOO long!! For credibility, I'm a nobody with no credentials other than I LOVE music, and have never been paid to write reviews of any kind ✌️ Sooo anyway rated from S+ to F-:

I
  1. Untrust Us: A-. It's one of their more playful songs, but still has that dark beauty which is in every CC song. No idea how Ethan can make tracks still sound really deep and dark even with such playful sounds - no-one else does that shit.
  2. Alice Practice: S. Alice's voice sounds SO good in this and the lyrics are some of my favorite lyrics ever, whoever wrote them (Ethan and Alice both claimed to) is a real poet. The vocals are full of intensity and emotion, there's a lotta pain and anger but vulnerability too. The song somehow sounds dirty, aggressive AND sensitive at the same time.
  3. Crimewave: A-. The vocal hook is super catchy, but the song still feels really dark even with that boppy synth solo after the verses. It reminds me of like the morning journey to school when it was rainy and grey.
  4. Magic Spells: C+. Reminds me of like daft punk's more downtempo instrumentals, but a bit duller. Not my favourite but still a pretty good song.
  5. Xxzxcuzx Me: B. I don't like the structure of this song somehow, like the verses feel too short and it doesn't really progress anywhere. But I love Alice's voice and the lyrics, it's kinda like a shittier Alice Practice.
  6. Air War B. Solid song. Pretty creative specially the sample and how it transforms in the second half but it just doesn't make me feel as emotional as some other songs.
  7. Courtship Dating: A-. I love how almost subdued this song sounds, it's like having Alice in your pocket. Her voice is addictive in this and the melody & arrangement is tidy and overall it's a lotta fun to listen to.
  8. Good Time: C. I never found myself liking this song much, found it pretty skippable, specially compared to how beautiful other CC songs are.
  9. 1991: B+. The main synth riffs are sick - intense and danceable at the same time. That spacey resonator vocal sample at the end sounds ethereal and weird and just really works somehow.
  10. Vanished: B. I really like the post chorus in this with the doubled vox. The sine wavey synth hook is pretty too and a really unique sounding melody. But it's a little too monotonous for me.
  11. Knights: A. This is one of the first CC songs where Ethan does that signature transition from a real dirty hard synth riff "verse" to this really melodic, beautiful "chorus". I think this song was Ethan beginning to get into the territory where he realized what he wanted to do with the band's sound.
  12. Love and Caring: B. Another Alice practice-like song, but I don't really like the harmony of the backing track to me it sounds too plainly happy. Alice saves it from being one of my least favourite CC songs, another fantastic performance on this track - she almost sounds like she's crying.
  13. Through the Hosiery: B+. Not my favourite instrumental to start, the texture kinda sounds half assed to me somehow. BUT the outro with the sine wave plinky plonky shit is fantastic, it sounds so simple but it's really deep in a strange way.
  14. Reckless: A+. Apparently the vocals from Through the Hosiery were supposed to be on here, and when they performed Reckless live she normally sang em. To me this is a really good instrumental, everything just works together, bass, drums and synthlines all molded together, and it's hypnotic and enthralling.
  15. Black Panther: A+. Just a really solid song. Good instrumental, there's a lot of movement and life in this song. The synth melody is silly and happy, but also nostalgic. The lyrics are really dark and it juxtaposes with the energy of the music in this really strange but effective way.
  16. Tell Me What To Swallow: S+. Listening to this song on high volume gives goosebumps like crazy. The verse is so sad, sweet and tender, then when the ooooooh chorus comes in, it's DEVASTATING. Unbelievably stark, emotional and bare, the second chorus and outro makes me imagine like a huge mountain next to a tiny flower blooming in a bleak, grey field with heavy rain. It's one of the only songs which always gives me shivers even after hearing it prolly thousands of times, and one of the most emotionally intense CC songs.
II
  1. Fainting Spells: A-. It's a really intense song and a great opener to an album.
  2. Celestica: S. The instrumental is beautiful and so is Alice's voice. Like Ethan said, you can hear how "cold" this album sounds and this song sounds REALLY cold, almost freezing. The lyrics even make you think of the cold. But it's also got a really nostalgic, wistful feel to it, like a really deep, but gentle sadness.
  3. Doe Deer: A+. Short & sweet. Another super intense song, but it's a more focused intensity than e.g. Love and Caring, I felt.
  4. Baptism: S. I personally think Alice's voice was at it's best here, the HOLD MY HEAD especially sounds fucking amazing. It's like a shriek but really resonant and delivered perfectly. The song has a really strong verse-chorus contrast with that beepy synth then the wide chorus with those dirty saw synths and her beautiful vocals, which makes this song sound fascinating - nothing short of spectacular. It's also super danceable. Love this song.
  5. Year of Silence: S-. The synthy section when the drums cut off blows me away. It's desperate, sad, longing, and regretful, but mixed with hope and just overwhelmingly human sounding. Ethan really mastered these contrasting sections like noone else I ever heard, he fills a verse with a sort of dirty, chugging progression, then cuts into these staggeringly emotional melodic parts, and this song is just such a good example of that.
  6. Empathy: S. The change to that melodic aaah ah ah chorus in this is even better than the transiton in Year of Silence. All of a sudden the track opens up, the most gorgeous chords start playing and Alice's breathy voice soars out and KILLS my soul. (Sorry if this is getting too music theory-ish, but I love the sorta implied suspension in the chorus chords, the way the first chord resolves to the second, but the bass drowns it so it's like a "half" suspension somehow, I literally can't even imagine how the guy came up with this track).
  7. Suffocation: S+++++++. This song is just as "cold" as Celestica, but causes an absolute shit-ton of goosebumps - musically they nail it beyond belief, here. The vocal melody is staggeringly beautiful, specially the "weaaaathers down my selfish needs" part followed by the chorus, and the B in "I'm (wasting my days)" and "You're (waiting for someone)". And holy shit, it's so gorgeous with those soaring synths, and the way the verses strip them away so you're just left with Alice's really sweet, introspective vocals with a little saw and drums, and then they come back in with the chorus and that "I suffocate...", and it's glorious - I mean GLORIOUS. Just overwhelmingly incredible. It's an exceptionally sad song, but it's not just sad: it's deeper than that, it's like a really heartbreaking, bitter, shaking sadness, mixed with overwhelming beauty, hope and longing, without any melodrama or pretense, just a terribly honest, unbelievably beautiful song. Lyrically it's absolutely perfect, too. One of my favorite songs of all time, and one of the only songs I had to actually stop listening to it because I couldn't take how beautiful it sounded and had to take a breather to stop and process it - I wasn't ready to be taken to such an icy, dark world with melting melodic beauty dripping around, suffocating.
  8. Violent Dreams: S-. Continues this run of really good songs on this album. The way the chrous builds after the subdued chorus just sounds so free-ing and intense. Another really sad, cold sounding song. Magical.
  9. Vietnam: S-. Killer chorus with bell-like synths glittering over the really intensely sad vocals and choppy bassline.
  10. Birds: B+. Those dirty overdriven rock guitars sound great, almost industrial, but I don't find it as beautiful as some of the previous songs.
  11. Pap Smear: A+. Another really wintery, cold-sounding song, but a bit more dancey - reminds me of DARE by gorillaz, but more like floating on a wintry wind, in a depressed way. It makes me feel like when you feel like shit but put on a smile to your friends standing outside a bus stop in a shit town.
  12. Not in Love: S+. The single with Rob Smith would get the same rating. Again, it sounds cold. This song has such a good progression, the pre-chorus is PERFECT after the verse, and the final chorus when the FAT saw synths come in is probably the single most gorgeous part of Crystal Castles' entire discography, aurally. Tension builds all through the verse and prechorus then it releases into this explosion of colour and wonder, and it's majestic. It sounds really desperate, like trying to claw your way back into a relationship which is failing the shit out of you, or running away as far as possible. It really reminds me of like those unsure angsty years of youth when the world seemed really big and new, with an imagined really busy cityscape in the snow.
  13. Intimate: B. Probably my least favorite on the album but still a very good song. The vocal swells sound really mysterious underneath the drums, almost spooky.
  14. I am Made of Chalk: A-. A really creative, surprisingly deep song. That lonely synth line which comes in after the intro is captivating. It's probably one of the loneliest songs Ethan ever wrote.
Bonus Tracks/Singles/Soundcloud
  1. Lovers Who Uncover: S. One of the catchiest and most "mainstream" songs they made, but still also fantastically emotional. It's really nightly and heartbreaking. It's both uplifting and melancholy at the same time. It's one of the most nostalgic songs I ever heard, and that oh NOOOOOOOO with all the beepy synths is magnificent after the chugging New Order-like bass octaves all throughout the verses. To me the only problem with this song is that it gets a bit repetitive and tiring towards the end - I think he didn't really know how to end it.
  2. Leni: S-. The chorus with those swirling beepy synths and vocal chops really made me fall in love with this band the first time I heard it years ago. One of the best ones of Ethan's signature transitions.
  3. Eat Flesh: A+. The main vocal sample is hypotic, ghostly and captivating. This song is really experimental and creative, and one of the darkest and most straight depressing songs they ever released. The arpeggio synth that comes in makes it really intense towards the end.
  4. Make it Hott: B-. Kinda like an outtake from I, it's a pretty fun listen and the uffie sample sounds great, the song just lacks movement and that devastating beauty in e.g. Suffocation for me.
  5. It Fit: B+. To me this is an "almost great". The chorus is another contrasting, melodic "signature" chorus which opens up the song but a little worse than the ones in like Symmetry et al.
  6. Hunting For Witches: A-. It's yet another good song, has a lot of energy, and the droning guitar creates this really insane sounding soundscape with the super dancey beat, and the layered vocal part like halfway in is really melancholy, literally like music from the asylum.
Phew that was a lot haha. Anyway thanks for reading my fangirl vomit 😅

2020.07.16 20:42 tbf315 RIVERDALE THEORY - The True Mastermind of the Black Hood Killings

In Season 4, we learn about Charles, Betty and Jughead’s half-brother. In this, we also learn about the Serial Killer genes, which Betty and Charles allegedly both have.
Now, what is the connection between Betty and Charles?
However, that doesn’t seem to be the best question to ask here. Rather than WHAT is the connection, we should be asking WHO is the connection?
And to answer that, it’s Alice Smith, mother of both Betty and Charles, therefore we can assume that they get their serial killer genes from Alice.
But to go farther into the theory, you might ask, WhY wOuLd AlIcE tRy AnD sEt HaL uP tO tAkE tHe FaLl FoR tHe BlAcK hOoD mUrDeRs?
But to that I answer that Alice was NOT the secret True Black Hood in the third of a series of Black Hood takeouts. Rather, I hope to prove that Alice was turning Hal against the town of Riverdale.
There are three main motivations for committing murder, and they are as follows:
  1. Money
  2. Revenge
  3. Love
[EDIT #2: In S1: E8, when Hal kicks Alice out of The Register, she says to him “You already know what I’m capable of.” So, I asked myself, WHaT CoULd ALiCE bE ReFFeRInG To HErE?
And I that that Fred wasn’t her first attempt. I feel that in a Who Shot Mr. Burns way, almost everyone in the town of Riverdale was after Jason, all of course depending on their loathing.]
So, starting from the very first attempt all the way back at S1: E12.
CASE 1: THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF FRED ANDREWS
Black Hood’s first outing was the robbing of Pop’s Chocolate Shop, which resulted in the shooting of Fred Andrews.
This attempted murder was carried out by Hal Cooper. During Black Hood's letter to the town, Hal simply calls Fred an “adulterer”. But why would a hard-working father care so much about the personal life of his neighbor?
That brings us to Alice Cooper, town journalist and gossiper.
What motive would Alice want to kill Fred Andrews? you may ask. And that brings me to Alice and Hal’s own business, The Register.
A failing newspaper business would make tons of money off of the obituary of one of the town’s most loved citizens.
There is our first motives: MONEY.
[EDIT 1: During the last viewing of the Drive-In, while on a "date" with Hermione Lodge, who else approaches Fred's truck and calls him "adulterer" but Mrs. Alice Cooper.]
Seeing as Hal failed to kill Fred, the business had to be sold to Hiram Lodge.
CASE 2: THE MURDER OF MISS GRUNDY
Black Hood’s first murder, Miss Grundy, was carried out shortly after Grundy was run out of Riverdale due to her affair with Archie.
Hal claimed to have killed her because she had her affair with Archie, but that brings us to Alice. Her daughter, Betty had the most obvious crush on Archie, even since they were kids. Alice said that she read Betty’s diaries, and knew about her and Archie, so Grundy was the most obvious person to kill.
Either that or Hal went rogue. I'd like to think its the former because it sort of puts a dent in my theory. However you could argue that since this was not in fact in Riverdale, and Hal was only interested in killing the scum of Riverdale, it could really go either way. Regardless, here I am.
Motivation: REVENGE
[EDIT 3: In S2: E2, when Archie and Betty go to Alice, she is completely unfazed by the murder of Grundy.]
CASE 3: THE SHOOTING OF MOOSE AND MIDGE
The third Black Hood attack was carried out on Lover's Lane against high-schoolers Moose and Midge. During the time, they were trying the new drug, Jingle Jangle when Hal walked up to their car and simply shot them.
This was on the boarders of Riverdale, so we can safely say that Alice was behind this attack. She was hoping to send a message to the teens of Riverdale; drugs will not be accepted.
However this one can also be chocked up to money, as all of these attacks boost the sales of The Register.
Motivation: MONEY
CASE 4: THE TOWN HALL ATTACK
The first attack that was foiled by out protagonist, Betty Cooper. The attack was supposed to take place at Town Hall, likely a shooting, similar to a later Town Hall attack.
It was likely going to target some other "sinners", and I theorize that the sinner was either Joseph Svenson or Fred Andrews. However, seeing as Betty and Jugular-head evacuated the scene, we may never know so...
Motivation: N/A
CASE 5: THE SUGARMAN MURDER
The second successful murder, Black Hood blackmails Betty into finding out the name of the Sugarman, who was the Jingle Jangle producer. Betty turns Mr. Phillips in, and Black Hood kills him at the Sheriff's office. However, it seems to me that this is a step up from the Moose/Midge attack.
So, this one seems more like revenge against the Blossoms, as the Sugarman was in cahoots with Clifford Blossom before Penelope decided that he should bungee jump from his neck.
So, I'll put this motive as revenge.
Motivation: REVENGE
CASE 6: THE SVENSON FAKEOUT
The first fake Black Hood attack was carried out by Joseph Conway (Svenson), by cutting of his own finger and mailing it to Betty. She is then forced by Svenson at gunpoint to bury Archie in a coffin.
Betty, Archie and Sheriff Keller get the drop on Svenson, with Archie shooting Svenson with his own gun.
To analyze this fight, it seems to me that Hal was worried that either Betty or Keller would catch onto his trail, so he used the Svenson at his disposal to lead the trail away from himself.
This is less of a Black Hood attack rather than an attempt for Hal to put some room between the RPD and himself. I'm not going to count this as an attack.
CASE 7: THE NEAR-DEATH OF CHERYL AND THE DEATH OF MIDGE
During probably the worst running episodes of the entire series, Kevin's musicals take a dark turn when Cheryl is almost killed before the show even begins and Midge is killed at the actual show.
This killing serves a message. The Black Hood is back.
Motive: REVENGE against the town of Riverdale.
CASE 8: THE "KILLING" OF CHIC
In what was a sort of ambiguous ending, Betty hands Chic over to the Black Hood, and she assumes that he was killed. (Save for the S4 Finale)
This "murder" was meant to save Betty and Alice from the murderer living in the house. (Strange considering the fact that Hal lives there but I digress). This was to show his love for Alice and Betty.
Motive: LOVE
CASE 9: THE MAYORAL POTSHOTS
In an event rigged by Hiram Lodge, he hired Tall Boy to basically pretend to be the Black Hood. He takes a shot at Fred Andrews, to try and prove his likeness to the real Hood. He also """""""attempts""""""" to kill Hermione Lodge.
Since this was not Hal, or Alice, I can't do anything for this.
CASE 10: THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF CHERYL BLOSSOM
After paying a visit to Thistlehouse, Hal tries to kill Cheryl Blossom with an axe. This is around the time Hal begins to have an affair with Penelope Blossom so there are two theories.
THEORY A: Alice hates the Blossoms, so she manipulates Hal into killing Cheryl.
THEORY B: Penelope hates her LGBT daughter, so guess who's on the chopping block? Madam Cheryl Blossom.
Once again, I kinda have to go with Theory A, because it's what I do.
MOTIVE: REVENGE
CASE 11: THE MURDER OF DR MASTERS
As seen as kind of a throwaway thing, Hal kills Dr. Masters to bring Betty back to her house. There he details his every move, and Betty sends the confession to Keller, where she gets him arrested.
This could be the last part of Alice's plan; get Hal arrested and keep the kids to herself. There is no motive for Hal, but for Alice...
MOTIVE: REVENGE
CASE 12: THE RIVERDALE HIGH MASSICRE
After faking his death, Hal tries to kill Betty, but kills many, many, MANY extras. His only motive is to get revenge on Betty and Alice. Now Alice has lost control of Hal.
PENELOPE'S MOTIVE: REVENGE
CASE 13: THE THORNHILL HUNT
This was the last time Hal is in the series, and Penelope uses the opportunity to tie up all loose ends, including Hal.
PENELOPE MOTIVE: REVENGE
In this theory I hope that I proved that Alice is really the evil mastermind behind the Black Hood attacks. Tell me what you think.

If there was one thing Lachlan MacGregor was not of two minds about regarding taking up residence on Mara, the return to something of a natural circadian rhythm was it. The days were shorter than he was used to, of course, but there was little artificial light in the village after dark, save for fire, torches, and a few LED’s around Alice’s abode. That seemed about to change given Antoth’s approval of an order of lanterns that arrived for the guard force, but otherwise the Marine found sleep when the sun went down and woke easily when it rose again in the west. He was even getting a bit used to sleeping on straw. Ursol, on the other hand, had not gotten over the novelty of sleeping on Lachlan’s inflatable foam pad.
“Good mornin’ mum,” the Marine said quietly, emerging into the common area of Sentaura’s home where the single mother already had a fire going. She’d explained that, especially in the summer months, it was best to cook before Seil warmed the land too much. “Do you need anythin’?”
“More water, if you please,” she requested, and so Lachlan headed out to the town square with a bucket in hand. He took some time to refresh and water himself as well, refilling his canteen and splashing the river water from the aqueduct on his face before returning. Sentaura gave him a wan smile as he set the bucket in the corner. Ursol was still snoozing. “What did you play with him?”
“Truth be told I ran him around the village a couple times, told him hunters have to be fast as well as strong. I’ll teach him ta do pushups tonight maybe. Ah, I’m sorry about Alice, Sentaura. She’s just an excitable lass. We didn’t mean to bring up bad memories.”
“Lachlan,” Sentaura cut him off gently, stepping around the cooking fire to stand before him. “You humans are always too sensitive, or perhaps it is just you. My mate is dead. She should not feel shame for her interest in the harvest festival.”
“I beg yer pardon, mum,” Lachlan murmured, confused as Sentaura placed a hand on his arm.
“When you finally open your eyes to the way she looks at you, Ursol and I will be sad to see you go. The last time I had such a peaceful morning was before he was born,” she recalled, waving her feathers slowly as fond memories mixed with sorrow. Ursol finally began to rouse himself from bed, rubbing his eyes.
“Momma?”
“She’s cookin’ us all some grub, wee laddie. Let’s go to the outhouse and leave her be a moment, yeah?” the human suggested, unwilling to face the frankness of a woman who understandably did not believe that love should wait under any circumstances.
“Ok, Uncle Lachlan. I’m gonna beat you today!” the cub promised, prompting the Marine to hoist him into the air and saunter out of the building.
“Don’t think I’ll be going easy on ya, lad. No one ever became a strong soldier or hunter that way. And you want to be a great hunter, right?”
“Right!”
“Then worry about becomin’ smarter and stronger, not about winning.” That advice was the final word that Sentaura was able to make out, the slightly unnatural tone of the translation easier for her ears to pick up as he walked down the street outside. She returned to peacefully stirring something of a saute in her cooking pot, a mixture of vegetables, meat, and herbs to taste. She couldn’t help but scold herself as a tear fell into the pot and sizzled away.
“Yes, we will miss you greatly, you strange, red-furred human.”

“First Lieutenant, this is a surprise. I assume you came up on the morning shuttle?” Natori asked as Russell Winters politely waltzed onto the bridge like he owned the place. The Jumper nodded to the Marines on duty before saluting him.
“I somehow doubt that, sir.”
‘I have seamless remote integration established, sir,’ Io advised. ‘It is no longer necessary for you to be here for me to be here, so to speak. He did not check the flight records.’
“I retract my statement then,” Russell allowed with a shrug, glancing at the various crew who were on their morning shifts. “I understand this is unannounced, but I was hoping for a moment to speak with you privately.”
Natori cocked his head and smiled, always a bit too interested for Russell’s taste. But such was the nature of Beta Division and admiralship, he supposed. “Of course. My team is not due to depart for the Forge for another thirty minutes. Turnwell?”
“No problems, Admiral,” the First Mate spun around in his chair, stood, and saluted. Natori stood as well and returned it.
“Wonderful. This way if you please, Lieutenant?” Natori requested, leading the Jumper off the bridge and to his private quarters. He took a seat behind his desk and gestured that Russell should be at ease as well, breaking the easy silence between the men.
“I’ll stand, thank you, sir.”
“As you wish. Now what can I do for you, Lieutenant?” Natori wondered.
“It’s almost been a year since my ship was lost. I was only able to do so much on my own. I’d like to request formal military honors,” Winters stated. Kaczynski nodded, checking his datapad.
“It’s been a bit difficult getting used to the day night cycle here, but yes, back home it’s currently August sixteenth. To think we’ve been here but two weeks? Time certainly does shift when you have so many things to do. Can I ask if you had anything in mind, Lieutenant?” Natori asked kindly.
“Nothing extravagant, sir.”
‘If I may?’ Io interjected, projecting herself using the technology once reserved for Cassia. It was as though she were in the room with them both, minus the fact they could see through her to the wall behind. ‘Russell and I, mainly Russell, constructed a shrine to the fallen in the Cauthan fashion. It is a few yards from where our pod still rests on the surface. Perhaps a simple wreath laying? A twenty one gun salute might anger the Ghaelen unless we pick the shells up.’ They all chuckled faintly at the image.
“We will not short change the dead on account of anyone,” Natori insisted firmly. “Lieutenant Winters, I believe Io’s proposition is a sound one. Is that acceptable?”
“Yes sir. Thank you, sir.”
“Would you like to say any words for them at the service?”
Russell broke eye contact with the Admiral for a moment, considering the question. Io waited patiently as well. Eventually he shook his head. “I said what I needed to when I said goodbye, sir.”
“Indeed, then I will not presume to speak for you or the dead either,” Kaczynski agreed, picking up his mug of coffee and swirling it absently. “Doctor Lamont has yet to lead me astray.”
“Sir?”
“He remarked to me that you are resilient in the face of tragedy, regardless of motivation. I am impressed is all. But before we have any awkward silences or statements of bravado, I will use this occasion to update you on our progress at the Forge. Shall we?”
“Sure,” Russell agreed as Io made a scene of peeking over Natori’s shoulder.
“Hello to you too, Io. Now, while you, Alice, and Lachlan have spearheaded our efforts at the village, and I must say I’m quite looking forward to this harvest festival; I have assigned my team to continue overseeing the research efforts at the Forge. The initial contact mission was led by then Sergeant Lipper, and continues under Lance Corporal Mendes.”
‘Why do you need us, sir?’ Io questioned. Natori threw her a slight smile over his shoulder and held up a hand.
“I was just getting to that, Io. At this point, given the ongoing reports from the ground teams, I believe we have learned all we can about this installation from the outside. While that is a non-negligible statement, this is still a bit of an iceberg situation, if you will. Observe.”
‘Mein gott!’ Io exclaimed as Russell glanced her way.
“You didn’t know about this?” he asked. “I assumed you were looking at everything.” Io wagged her finger at him.
‘Sir, in addition to respecting the privacy of others I have been fully occupied with the preparation of Maran soil and growing conditions in the hydroponics bays, not to mention assisting the good Doctor Dupuis with his Cauthan blood analysis project and the isolation of a stable polymerase from bacterial cultures he retrieved from the hot springs. Did I also mention hanging around with you, Veera, and the others? Alice and Alyra are supposed to have a chat tomorrow. Do you have any idea how that’s going to go? I give it a week before they’re all wearing tophats with holes for their ears.’
“One can hope!” Natori interjected happily. “Thank you for your service both on board and on the surface, Io. But let us return to this floating structure, shall we?” Natori’s description was not for show. Seismic imaging of the Forge over the previous days and weeks had revealed the massive underground nature of the installation. Several extensions moved deep into the earth both vertically and laterally as offshoots from the main chamber, which itself extended beyond the depth range of the ground team’s sensors. “Utterly fascinating, isn’t it? Were it not for the fact we know it to be buried underground, I would hypothesize some sort of orbital platform, or even an oceanic installation.”
‘Instead it’s floating in the ground… rather unstable ground,’ Io noted, meeting Natori’s eye over his shoulder. They nodded to one another as Russell acknowledged he was likely in for a bit of a stay and took a seat in Natori’s ‘guest chair’.
“Which begs the question of why construct it there in the first place,” the Admiral agreed, leaning back in his chair and stroking his chin thoughtfully. “Assuming your radiological dating efforts are accurate, and even if we allow for a massive error term I have no reason to doubt the two of you, the idea of this construct remaining not just upright, but functional, is absolutely mind-boggling.”
“Having been inside, sir, that place was built to last,” Winters offered. “I’m not as scientifically minded as either of you two, but whatever control room area we entered was glowing like something out of a knock off bond movie where they build the superweapon in a volcano.”
‘Count on the Jumper to make everything simple,’ Io remarked kindly. Natori waved his finger in the air.
“Not so fast, Io! Joking aside I think there’s plenty of merit to that analysis.”
‘As do I, Admiral. I was simply acknowledging the usefulness of minds that are trained to break things.’
“Hardy har har,” Winters mocked. “So what’s the plan, sir?”
Natori brought his hands together atop his desk and adopted a more serious posture. “The plan, as you say, is to send people inside to try to figure out exactly what this thing is and if it has any connection to the unstable warp point in this system. The anomaly has been, how shall I put it, stably unstable?” Natori presented them with new data, a simplified waveform.
‘That is the warp point?’ Io guessed. He nodded.
“Precisely. It was a bit of a challenge condensing the gravitational flux into something comprehensible, but I believe our technicians succeeded,” he explained proudly. “This relatively muted example over here is what Sol’s warp point looks like on an average day. The amplitude is much lower, but the variance within that range is actually greater than…” Natori fell silent as the lights dimmed around them. He immediately hailed the bridge.
“Turnwell?”
“Large power draw from the VI cores, sir. Just about every spare processor on the ship got pinged. You might want to check with that comely new VI of yours?”
Natori ran a hand through his short, rough hair as he turned fully in his chair. “You are sexy, but you also cannot do that, Io.”
“Don’t look at me, I’m immune to your charms,” Winters added as the young woman glanced his way imploringly. “You know how power surges and ships don’t mix.”
‘That is… you are right, sir. I was struck by something in the Admiral’s data, and I have found the solution. Es tut mir Leid.’
“I… you did what?” Kaczynski whispered. Io presented him with a model of the Seil system, complete with the orbital paths of every major planetary body.
‘How long has it been since we first found the Forge, sir?’ Io asked with an acute look. Winters returned it.
“Was right around my twenty-fifth birthday I think. Call it three months ago? And I have no doubt you’ve been thinking about the Forge that whole time.”
‘Is there any chance you could join the Juggernaut program and get us some more space in your armor for computing power?’ she requested. Winters narrowed his eyes.
“You know what they do to those soldiers, Io… and so do you, Admiral. No thanks.”
“And I am very pleased to report, First Lieutenant, that shortly before we departed on this mission my Division’s work on combat cybernetics bore particular fruit. The first generation of non-chemically dependent Juggernauts began training at Los Alamos. Commander Lavinaga is working closely with us in this effort. Now to the matter at hand; or should I inquire as to how the two of you know about information that’s supposed to be classified?”
“Point taken,” Winters acknowledged. “I’m glad to hear it, sir.”
“Io? I daresay you have the floor,” Natori offered as the AI dimmed the lights and began to roll forward the waveform that represented the system’s warp point.
‘Thank you, Admiral. As Russell mentioned, this is something that has perplexed me since its discovery, this Forge of ours. If you ask me, the deepest mystery is how readily Veera associated the installation with her people’s mythology, but that is a question for Alice, not us.’
“And where is our excitable Winters sibling?” Natori wondered.
“She’s showing Asha and Zolta around the ship. Xan is here too, reviewing the hydroponics facilities and the manufactories,” Russell explained quickly. “We wanted them to have a chance to take it all in before visiting with the doctor.”
“Splendid!” Natori approved. “I’m sorry, Io. If you please?”
‘You might be more scatterbrained than Alice,’ the AI declared with a smirk, adjusting the thin glasses she had perched on the bridge of her nose. ‘It’s a good thing, I assure you. As I was saying I have no shortage of hypotheses and postulations, but I lacked key resources to examine them. The first was detailed information about the celestial bodies of this system, which your ship and crew have provided in spades over these last couple weeks. I commend your watchstanders and other scientists. The second is computing power. Please extend my thanks to the team that put together this little waveform here. Our ancient overlords were not subtle, that’s for sure.’
Instead of explaining further, Io provided visual ‘proof’ of her hypothesis. As the various moons and planets of the Seil system rotated and spun, she began connecting lines between the warp point and each ball of rock. It started with Mara itself, with about one in every seven peaks in the waveform corresponding to midday at the Forge’s location. Natori placed a hand over his mouth as it all clicked. Io’s need for more processors was evident.
‘I propose to you gentlemen that the Forge is one part of a system-wide network of installations designed to pull at the warp point of this system. How they do so, I have no idea… but here’s what I do know.’ Suddenly the planets began moving backward at Io’s command, reversing their orbit until she held them in place with a snap of her fingers. A date and time flashed above it all thanks to Natori’s holographic displays built into his desk. ‘The effect is less muted than this only seventeen hundredths of a percent of the time. You have a guardian angel, Admiral Kaczynski.’
Russell placed his head in his hands, uttering mumbled prayers to Kel, Meylith, and every other deity he could think of, human and Cauthan, for the life of his sister. The Event Horizon had entered the system near one of the troughs of the warp disruption wave, a disturbingly predictable pattern that Io rewound easily all the way back to September 3rd, 2050. She marked one of the peaks. ‘This is when the Lancer reached the Seil system. If we assume that each spike in the cycle is due to a unique installation, this is the only solution that matches the rotation of the rocky bodies in the system,’ Io explained, highlighting the one rocky planet that orbited closer to the star than Mara, Eiur, and two of the moons that orbited the nearest gas giant to the star. ‘I have a list of my assumptions regarding energy draw, strength of effect, orbital drift, and other confounding factors here, Admiral,’ Io concluded, procuring a stack of paper at least thirty pages thick before condensing it into a ball of light and shooting it at Natori’s personal device. His unread mail notification pinged. He nodded quietly and looked at Winters.
“Lieutenant, I understand you and my Jumpers did not get off on the best foot with one another. Do you believe they need you to enter this facility safely?” the Admiral demanded. Russell shook his head.
“Not the first time at least, sir. Io and I encountered some sort of skeleton made of metal in the entryway. It had an old nuclear power core that was leaking radiation. That’s how we came up with our date estimate. I believe that should be your first stop. We didn’t encounter anything active until we moved much farther inside the structure.”
‘I believe this is a sound suggestion,’ Io added. ‘Until Private Rex and Private Lipper are able to thaw their hostility towards my operator, perhaps in the ring at the harvest festival, I would not advocate for a five man operation unless under the most dire of circumstances. Lance Corporal Mendes and Private Orlova have proven much more amicable.’
“Hardly surprising. Very well you two, thank you for your time today. I will make all necessary preparations for that expedition as well as an appropriate memorial to the crew of the Lancer. Now if you would excuse me, we appear to have a visitor?”
Kaczynski was not given much time to collect himself and deactivate Io’s displays as Yvonne Dupuis strode proudly into the room, sporting a new look for herself. Io waved from behind the Admiral.
‘Bonjour madame! Your hair looks like Asha’s tail. I approve!’ the AI complimented her, remarking the matron’s silvery locks that featured a bold black accent offset to the right side of her head.
“Bonjour, Io. Were you the cause of that power surge just now?” she wondered, mild accusation in her voice.
‘Yes, I’m sorry. I was working with the Admiral here on something very important and-’
“Quiet, please. I am not here to scold you. You, on the other hand,” Yvonne hardened her tone and strode right past Russell to slam her hands on Natori’s desk. “You will make an announcement today, to the full crew, explaining who and what she is! This has gone on long enough, Mr. Kaczynski!”
“Now see here my good woman-”
“I will see nothing! We all risked our lives to come out here and now the lights dim and no one knows what is happening. VI’s begin to speak German on rare occasions.”
‘Scheiße.’
“Strangely detailed treatises on the Cauthan come to our mailboxes penned by a mysterious someone known only as ‘Io’,” Yvonne continued on, seeming in no hurry to stop. Natori stood and held up a hand in a plea for calm. The frenchwoman stood upright and crossed her arms under her bust, cocking her head at him. “Well?”
“I estimated the truth to be more dangerous than the lie, madame,” he replied firmly. “We can discuss this matter in private-”
“We will do no such thing! She is a person, Natori! Look at her!” Yvonne demanded as Io quickly vanished. “Io, please, return to us. Good, thank you dear. Now look at her Natori! Military secrets do not have free will! She does! You should hear the stories Gerard has for me each night of their lab work together. It has been but two days and he is smitten! When they met he thought she was a Prussian spy!”
Io participated in the discussion by dressing herself head to toe in a Prussian military uniform straight out of the late 1800’s, complete with a spiked helmet. “You see?!” Yvonne shrieked. “Today, Natori. Today! You can do it while we’re conducting Asha’s ultrasound if you wish for her to be out of sight and out of mind, but do it today.”
The Admiral clasped his hands behind his back and inclined his head to acknowledge Yvonne. “I will take it under consideration, Madame Dupuis. Now if you don’t mind, I would like to finish my conversation with Io and Lieutenant Winters.”
Her piece said, Yvonne turned and marched off, head held high. When the door closed behind her everyone in the room breathed a sigh of relief. ‘That woman is a force of nature. No wonder she and Gentia get along so well.’
“Indeed. Lieutenant, did you have anything else you wished to discuss today?” the Admiral wondered. Russell shook his head.
“No sir, that was all. I’m set to meet my wife in hydroponics after this and if they want me there I’ll hang around for Asha’s visit with the doctor,” he explained.
“Perfect. Thank you both. I will keep you abreast of any developments at the Forge. In the meantime… I am left to consider if and how to announce to a crew of around two thousand souls that they share their home with a fully sapient AI.”
‘You have my thanks, Admiral,’ Io said quietly and earnestly, worrying her hands together. Kaczysnki hung his head.
“My bridge crew has been exemplary on this matter but… I am sorry for not considering your own humanity more strongly in this matter, Io.”
‘I have a place among the Cauthan, Admiral. Good day to you. See you soon, sir.’ Io departed, leaving the two men in silence.
“It’s funny,” Natori mused. “The higher my rank, the more I feel I am simply along for the ride.”
“I hope to never have that problem, sir. With your permission?” Russell saluted.
“I find that an ironic statement coming from the man who gave her life, so to speak, but please go on. You are dismissed, Lieutenant. Reach out to me or the crew if our guests today have any concerns.”
“Yes sir.”
-----
“Oh, I just have to show this to Alyra!” Asha gushed for what had to be the seventh time since arriving on board the Event Horizon. The journey had taken almost three times the usual duration, but Pilot Cromwell had been insistent on slow elevation gain and acceleration for the sake of Asha’s cub. Though it was certainly prudent and part of doctrine, she was still thanked profusely by Asha and Zolta upon their arrival. With Natori having practically dismantled the ‘quarantine zone’ given the favorable readings and interactions from his scientists, Asha experienced a quick and low-weight journey to a spare room that had been prepared for them. It sat nearby Xan’s quarters, as well as those given to Russell and Veera. The berths were unused most of the time, but with the low crew count and automation, the Event Horizon was spoiled for choice regarding lodging.
Following a brief initial checkup by Dr. Dupuis, Alice had of course volunteered to take the group of Cauthan, which also included Xan and Veera, for a tour of the ship while her brother left to speak with Admiral Kaczynski. All manner of wonders had captivated Asha’s imaginations during that time, the often lower gravity allowing her to forget about the robust little cub filling her belly for a few moments. Perhaps inevitably, they eventually found themselves at hydroponics. Asha’s comment had been directed at a large display panel that sat to the left of Engineer Prakash’s little office, providing an at-a-glance summary of all the goings on within the grow rooms. Stylized rain clouds, sunbeams, sprouting shoots, and other symbols spread across the screen, which was left with a wet nose print as Asha literally stuck her face into it. She giggled as the image was momentarily disrupted, but Zolta wasn’t so enthused.
“Asha, please be careful!” her mate implored as Anita stood to greet her guests. The shock of seeing a pregnant Cauthan in an Event Horizon jumpsuit was put on momentary hold, however, as Qul’Roth chose that moment to emerge from the nearest growing lab.
“Oh, hey there Qul’Roth! It’s been ages!” Alice waved. He tilted his head and scratched at his chin tuft.
“Alice Winters of Earth, good day to you. It has been several days at most, hardly an age. These are members of the village your people are allied with? Greetings to you all. My name is Qul’Roth of Ghaela, may this meeting serve to further the Order.” Though the Ghaelen bowed politely, his large size and antlers accentuated by the closed confines of the space. Veera and Xan both had translators, and both moved between him and Asha. Zolta quickly followed suit.
“Alice Winters, did they not understand what I said?” Qul’Roth wondered.
“We understood exactly what you said,” Veera replied coolly in English, crossing her arms over her chest. “And I still don’t trust you.”
“That’s the alien that threatened to wipe us off the face of the planet?” Xan demanded. Veera affirmed with her feathers as claws came out. It was up to Alice to step between them.
“Guys please, it’s alright. Their people are non-violent by law. He’d not harm any of you. Now Qul’Roth, maybe you should apologize too?” she insisted.
“Alice Winters you continue to amuse me! For what should I apologize? I did them no offense. I have never met the three of them before,” the Ghaelen pointed out. Alice nodded to one side in patient acknowledgment of his point.
“No, you didn’t. But your order did, and you’re the representative of the Order on this ship. So perhaps in that capacity you do.”
“Why should I apologize for suggesting actions to be taken in the common good?” Qul’Roth wondered. Alice sighed heavily, but given his truly confused tone she soldiered on as the Cauthan stared tensely at them both.
“Because your actions would have killed that pregnant mother to be, and because the other three have all spilled the blood of their own kind to defend their home. Did I mention the Cauthan are primarily carnivorous and you bear a remarkable resemblance to one of their prey species?”
“By the Order! You don’t think they would-”
“Of course not, Qul’Roth!” Alice laughed deep in her belly. “Look at them. See how they defend their young, even the crippled men among them? See the intelligence in their eyes? Your Order could use a few exception clauses, I think.”
Qul’Roth spent several minutes stroking his chin in silence, minutes that Asha took to hug Zolta from behind. Eventually the Ghaelen did speak. “I will consult my people’s records, Alice Winters of Earth. There is indeed Order in defending the weak and the unknown potential of the unborn. I am not yet convinced that the uplift treaty need be re-written, but your people have certainly provided us with a case study whether we wanted it or not.”
“Can’t you just say sorry to be nice?” Alice requested. Qul’Roth snorted in surprise. “They are my guests today.”
Though Alice did not get her wish, the Ghaelen did sweep into a lower bow that almost had one of his lanky arms bump against the wall and then the ceiling. “I wish you all a pleasant stay aboard, may we all seek to further the Order.”
“I think that’s about as good as we’re gonna get,” Alice ‘whispered’ over her shoulder to Veera and Xan. They nodded, understanding at least that the large alien was not a threat. That said, they shifted to always keep themselves between him and Asha as Qul’Roth made to depart.
“Oh, and Engineer Prakash, new arugula seeds have been planted in bay number two. I believe you will find them irrigated according to all proper specifications. Good day to you.” The Ghaelen departed, having drawn the Cauthan’s attention to the shy, unassuming Indian girl who looked around at them all. She was around Asha’s height, meaning that even Zolta and Xan stood taller, to say nothing of Veera. Xan reached out a hand as Veera waved to her in recognition.
“My name’s Xan. I like your skin color, it’s very dark.”
“Xan, you little bolts for brains!” Alice yelped, slapping him upside the back of the head and causing him to immediately round on her.
“How exactly do you expect to get a mate running around acting like that, Alice?”
“My ‘mating life’ is none of your damn business, Xan! You can’t just tell a woman you like her skin tone!”
“Why not?” Xan countered, not giving an inch as Veera, Asha, and Zolta retreated a pace, content to watch the goings on unfold.
“Because it’s rude, Xan. Humans don’t do that,” Alice explained in a moderate tone. He laughed directly in her face.
“Do I look like a human to you, human?”
“No, you look like a snot nosed cripple.”
“Oh, making fun of my gimped leg now? I’m sure that’s totally acceptable among humans,” he shot back sarcastically, smiling broadly as he felt he had a winning hand.
“That’s exactly how Anita feels, Xan!”
“Oh, and what if I said I enjoy the color of her eyes? Is that wrong too? What about her glossy fur?” he enumerated for example. “Or do you mean her skin color is some sort of disability?” Alice opened her mouth but paused a moment.
“No, that’s fine. And her skin is not a disability. But you’re still a creep!”
“You humans are really confusing,” he sighed, turning to face Anita again who looked like she wanted to sink through the floor. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you. I’m still getting used to humanity and I’ve really only had this one and her brother to go off of.”
“Xan, you little shit,” Alice muttered, allowing the interaction to proceed apace as the acolyte priest re-offered his hand to the engineer. She looked at him with more than apparent confusion on her face.
“Ah, I’m a death priest,” he explained. That did not help his position. “And my people have asked me to learn about how you grow food? Me and Veera here.”
“Hello Anita, it is good to see you again!” Veera said pleasantly, bringing a slight smile to Anita’s dark lips.
“Hello Veera. And it’s nice to meet you, Xan. Are these your friends?”
“Oh yeah, so this is my buddy Zolta. He’s a smith. And that’s Asha, his mate,” he explained. Io’s translation program, long since installed on every piece of relevant HEL tech on board, was more than capable of translating for Anita.
“Selah to you,” she replied quietly, earning herself the proper greeting in turn as the door to the central corridors of the ship opened behind them to reveal Russell and Yvonne. The two had followed Io’s instructions to the rendezvous, having left Natori’s office essentially one after the other.
“There you are! Bonjour again, Asha. How are you feeling, my dear? Still good?” Yvonne wondered. When the Cauthan pointed to her bare ears, the frenchwoman sighed and looked about. Xan was using Russell’s translators, so no further mobile devices were forthcoming. She turned to the ceiling instead. “Io, are you there, little Prussian?”
Russell did his best to contain himself, snickering in the background until the door opened again and one of the Event Horizon’s maintenance drones appeared and doused his backside with water. Yvonne and the rest took their turn for a laugh at his expense, except for Anita, of course, who began writing up a support ticket to the drone maintenance division. She gasped as her screen was wiped blank.
‘I am here, Madame Dupuis. And good morning, Anita Prakash. My name is Io. I will be assisting you and the rest of the ship’s crew from now on under Admiral Kaczynski’s orders. Oh, and Asha, this is what Yvonne said to you.’
Io’s translation had the Cauthan mom waving her feathers in understanding. “Isn’t she just the most useful little spirit? Please tell her I’m doing well and that the cub is feeling very active today.” Xan and Zolta found themselves nodding in agreement, the latter rubbing his mate’s belly soothingly.
“Perfect. Are you ready for your real checkup then, Asha? Zolta, you are welcome to attend as well. Is there anyone else you would like there with you?” Yvonne wondered. Anita was left to just watch the goings on, not even her own terminal belonging to her anymore.
“Veera, would you mind?” The words were barely out of Asha’s mouth when the tall, striped Cauthan waved her feathers eagerly.
“Of course! I’ll be there as long as you want me! Russell, I’m sorry but you can’t come.”
Asha looked ready to apologize, but the Jumper just laughed. He’d removed his shirt and was wringing it out on the floor. Io’s work was thorough. “It’s no problem, Asha. I wasn’t going to ask,” he assured her. “You do whatever you need to do to feel safe and secure. If you need me just let Io know. She can find me anywhere.”
“Oh la la,” Yvonne murmured appreciatively.
“Yvonne!” Alice shouted, utterly mortified following an unnaturally long period of silence for her.
“He’s happily mated,” Veera insisted. She had found the Dupuis couple to be nothing but polite, but didn’t know them well at all. Yvonne smiled.
“As am I, Veera. I simply appreciate the male form when I see it. Now then, shall we my dears?” Yvonne suggested. “Io, if you would accompany us for purposes of communication and transportation?”
‘It would be my pleasure, Doctor. Sir, I’ll be around.’
“Have a good time!” Russell called as Yvonne led Asha, Veera, and Zolta off to the nearest tube station. With Io at the helm, calibration of the pods for a pregnant woman was a trivial affair. Alice in particular looked sore at having been left behind.
“Try not to look so put out about it,” her brother insisted kindly, throwing an arm around her shoulder. She pushed him off with a grin.
“You’re still soaked.”
“She’s definitely got her particular brand of humor, that little Prussian.”
‘I heard that, sir!’
“Could someone please explain what’s going on?” Anita requested shyly from her seat, really only familiar with Alice among those who were left in her hallway.
“You mean Io? She’s Russell’s spirit guardian,” Xan explained confidently. When the confused and defensive look on Anita’s face didn’t change, even after a long moment of his staring at it in an attempt to decipher human mood, he gave up and turned to the Winters siblings. “I don’t think she gets it, guys.”
“You’re the worst, you little punk,” Russell laughed. “Sorry for my friend. Io’s my VI. She became sapient. Secret’s out. Not much more I can say cause I don’t know how it works. If you need help just ask.” As if to demonstrate, he called out to the ceiling. “Hey Io, can you ask Veera if she watered her orchids yet or if she wants me to do it?”
After a short moment, Io’s germanic accent replied. ‘She says you should go ahead, sir.’
“I-I can do that from here if you like?” Anita offered. Russell nodded in thanks.
“Appreciate that. So what are the two of you going to do?” he wondered. Alice took her turn to explain.
“Antoth and Thantis want Xan to prepare something of a report on how we grow food. Natori brokered some sort of agreement to grow their crops up here back when you grabbed that giant skull. Gotta hand it to Antoth, he’s a cautious one. I heard he inspected every single lantern we delivered himself before sending them over to Staroth and his men.”
“That’s Antoth for you! Best sun priest of my lifetime!” Xan insisted proudly.
“There have only been two sun priests during your lifetime,” Russell guessed.
“My point still stands!” To Xan’s great surprise, Anita actually giggled, though the moment he turned her way she fell silent again. He waved his crest feathers at her absentmindedly before turning back to Russell.
“What about you? Going to stick around?”
“No, there’s actually somewhere I need to be,” Russell told them, surprising both Xan and Alice.
“Where are you off to then, bro?”
“Armory. My weapons haven’t been properly cleaned in almost a year, and you never know when you’ll need to know the local quartermaster,” the Jumper explained sagely.
“Fair warning, Russell, he’s good friends with the two you put into the hospital last week,” Alice told him. He shrugged.
“And I’d be happy to do it again. Have fun you three!” Alice was left shaking her head as Russell departed from whence he’d come.
“What a hyrven,” Xan declared.
“You’re one to talk, Xan. All high and mighty now that you got turned down. Speaking of which, where is your hyrven?” Alice wondered.
“He’s not my hyrven,” Xan countered, waving away her reminder about Eris. “But I think they left him with Lachlan.”
“Huh. Here Anita, want to see something cool?” the xenoanthropologist offered, placing a ‘call’ to Lachlan’s signal planetside after a quick authorization which was approved, of course, by Io.
“Lassie? That you?” Lachlan’s voice crackled to life on Alice’s tablet. They could see the forests around the village as well as plenty of crops and fields.
“Heya Lachlan, is Fenrir with you?” Alice asked. Her answer came as Lachlan pointed his helmet downward, allowing them a view of the hyrven at the end of a generous leash made of nylon. Russell and Veera rarely used it anymore and Lachlan was certainly a capable man. However, the fact that Fenrir was currently being used by the cubs of the village as some sort of Maran pony was another thing entirely. “And you call me crazy?” Alice hissed at Xan.
“No one says you both can’t be crazy,” the Cauthan shot right back as Lachlan delivered his current charge back to the gate. Gentia’s acolytes could be seen there, and to a woman they all had worried looks on their faces. Gentia herself however was observing with patience and curiosity, while her mate scribbled on a fresh sheet of vellum at her side. He’d proven insatiable since restoring his sight. Ursol was next in line, and Lachlan made sure Fenrir was calm and had a drink of water before taking his next rider on a little walk.
“So Lachlan, how did this happen?” Alice demanded accusingly as Ursol squealed with delight.
“Don’t look at me, lassie! It was the old man’s idea,” the Marine insisted. She sighed as Anita whispered that Cauthan children were ‘super adorable’.
“Alright, talk to you later Mac. Have fun!” Alice wished him farewell before glancing at Xan. “So after we teach you how to farm like a human I think we’re going to have to go through all those scrolls and figure out where Thantis got the idea for pint sized Hyrven cavalry.”
“What’s cavalry?” Xan wondered, prompting Alice to pinch the bridge of her nose and heave a silent breath. She only hoped that by the time they returned to the village there would be plenty of happy children and no skinned Fenrir.
“Anita, could I ask you to take over for now? I think I’m finally learning what Yvonne feels like all the time.”
“Sure, Alice. Xan, would you like to follow me?”
“Yeah alright,” he agreed, leading the way as his cane tapped lightly on the metal floors. “But what’s cavalry?”

2020.07.01 12:36 JJJSurvivorFan39 Spoiler Hottest 100 2020 based on Spotify Shortlists

Hello triple j redditors. So recently I had some time on my hands and wanted to try and get a bit more up to date and aware of some of the songs that 2020 has produced so far. What I decided to do was to collect data from spotify shortlists of other people and make a mid year hottest 100 based on these spotify shortlists. I went through about 1400 playlists and it ended up being a lot of effort. These are the results of the top 200 songs that occurred the most.
Obviously, this isn’t at all a confirmed spoiler however I just thought that it could potentially be somewhat spoilery and I didn’t want anyone to accidentally click on this without knowing what it was. Obviously this list has lots of flaws in it with obviously the rest of the year still yet to produce songs and a lot of May/June songs not receiving their full potential yet, and that none of these results are actual votes rather vote considerations on shortlists. Here are the results and I'm deeply sorry if anyone has felt like this has potentially spoiled or ruined their 2020 hottest 100 day. For me personally i take this list with a grain of salt and rather a way to see what songs are popular half way through the year to greater my knowledge of triple j 2020.
Here are the results, enjoy :)

2020.06.17 20:18 JadedBrilliant Der film:"Stephanie"

Don’t Move ist ein italienischer Spielfilm aus dem Jahre 2004. Der Film entstand nach einem Roman von Margaret Mazzantini, die auch am Drehbuch mitgearbeitet hat.
Timoteo ist Chirurg in einer römischen Klinik. Seine 15-jährige Tochter Angela wird nach einem schweren Mopedunfall in diese Klinik eingeliefert. Während die Tochter im Koma liegt, denkt Timoteo an die Zeit vor 15 Jahren zurück. Er lebte mit seiner schönen Frau Elsa, die neben ihrer Schönheit auch als Businesswoman erfolgreich ist. Auf dem Weg zu ihr ins luxuriöse Wochenendhaus am Meer hat Timoteo eine Autopanne. In einer unwirtlichen Vorstadtgegend sucht er nach Hilfe und trifft auf Italia. Italia ist ein Unterschichtkind, das in einem kleinen Haus inmitten einer Hochhausbaulandschaft wohnt. Dorthin geht sie mit ihm und erlaubt ihm zu telefonieren. Die billig gekleidete Italia ist das genaue Gegenteil seiner Frau Elsa. Timoteo fühlt sich von ihr angezogen. Nachdem sein Auto repariert wurde, verabschiedet er sich von Italia. Im Glauben sie niemals wiederzusehen, vergewaltigt er sie. Verstört von diesem Vorfall fährt er nach dem Wochenende im Luxus mit seiner Frau wieder zu ihr, um sich zu entschuldigen. Sie treffen sich fortan regelmäßig und es entwickelt sich eine Liebesaffäre, die sich zu einem Doppelleben des erfolgreichen Chirurgen entwickelt.
Italia und Elsa werden in diesem Zeitraum beide von Timoteo schwanger. Timoteo weiß, dass jetzt die Zeit der Trennung von Italia gekommen ist. Er erzählt ihr von einer schweren Krankheit seiner Frau und dass er sie deshalb nicht verlassen könne. Als Italia erfährt, dass Elsa auch schwanger ist, entschließt sie sich ihr Kind illegal abzutreiben. Timoteo trifft Italia zufällig in der Stadt und beschließt sein Leben zu verändern. Er möchte nur noch mit Italia zusammen sein, obwohl seine Frau Elsa im neunten Monat kurz vor der Entbindung steht. Nach der Entbindung fährt er mit Italia in ihre Heimatregion und träumt von einem Neubeginn seines Lebens. In der Nacht kommt es bei Italia zu Komplikationen aufgrund ihrer fehlerhaften Abtreibung. Timoteo bringt sie in ein Krankenhaus und operiert sie selbst. Ihr Körper ist jedoch soweit vergiftet, dass sie nach der Operation stirbt.
15 Jahre später glaubt Timoteo, dass die tote Italia schützend über das Leben seiner Tochter Angela wacht und tatsächlich gelingt die schwere Gehirnoperation und Angela überlebt.
Penélope Cruz und Sergio Castellitto wurden 2004 mit einem David di Donatello als beste Hauptdarsteller des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Cruz wurde außerdem für den Europäischen Filmpreis nominiert und erhielt den europäischen Publikumsfilmpreis.
Schöne heile Welt steht für:
Der Goldene Handschuh ist ein deutsch-französisches Filmdrama von Fatih Akin über den Frauenmörder Fritz Honka aus dem Hamburger Kiezmilieu der 1970er Jahre. Der Film basiert auf einem gleichnamigen Roman von Heinz Strunk und feierte am 9. Februar 2019 im Rahmen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele Berlin seine Premiere, wo er im Hauptwettbewerb gezeigt wurde. Der Kinostart in Deutschland war am 21. Februar 2019.
Hamburg-St. Pauli, 1970: Der Hilfsarbeiter Fritz Honka verbringt seine Abende meistens in der Kiezkneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“. Mit seinem deformierten Gesicht, seiner Brille mit Kassengestell, seinem starken Schielen und seinem Sächseln gilt „Fiete“ dort als harmlos und schüchtern. Von seinem Gastwirt lässt er ältere, einsame Frauen ansprechen und lädt diese auf alkoholische Getränke ein. Als er eines Tages eine Frau für Sex mit in seine kleine, mit zahlreichen Pin-Up-Bildern versehene Mansardenwohnung nimmt, tötet er sie. Um keinen Verdacht im Haus zu erregen, zerstückelt Honka die Leiche und legt einige Einzelteile in der Umgebung ab. Bei seinen späteren Verbrechen deponiert er die zerstückelten Leichenteile hinter den Verkleidungen unterhalb der Dachschrägen. Den Verwesungsgeruch versucht er mit Wunderbäumen zu überdecken. Gegenüber seinen Gästen gibt er stets den Kochkünsten der unter ihm lebenden griechischen Gastarbeiterfamilie die Schuld am penetranten Gestank.
Vier Jahre später nimmt Honka die ältere Wienerin Gerda aus der Kneipe mit zu sich nach Hause. Als er aufgrund seiner massiven Alkoholisierung keine Erektion bekommt, penetriert er sie mit einem Kochlöffel. Am nächsten Tag nach seiner Heimkehr von der Arbeit, ist Gerda immer noch nicht aus seiner Wohnung verschwunden. Aus Wut schlägt er sie, lässt sie aber weiter bei sich wohnen, nachdem er feststellt, dass sie die Wohnung aufgeräumt hat. Honka zwingt Gerda zu erniedrigendem Geschlechtsverkehr und setzt einen Vertrag auf, um sie als Sklavin zu halten. Auch soll sie ihm ihre 30-jährige Tochter Rosi zuführen. Gleichzeitig gefällt es Honka, dass er von Gerda als „Chef“ angeredet wird. Neben ihr und seinen Saufkumpanen bleibt ihm als einzige Bezugsperson sein Bruder Siggi, der seit einer Trennung ebenfalls dem Alkohol zugeneigt ist. Gerda verlässt Honka, als sie nach den zahlreichen Erniedrigungen eines Tages im Goldenen Handschuh von Gisela, einer Majorin der Heilsarmee, mitgenommen wird, die ihr ein besseres Leben in Aussicht stellt. Wütend nimmt er die älteren Anna und Inge mit zu sich nach Hause. Während Honka Inge gewaltsam zum Sex zwingen will, flüchtet diese. Er tötet daraufhin die noch in seiner Wohnung verbliebene Anna.
Als Honka von einem Auto angefahren wird, plant er einen Neuanfang ohne Alkohol. Er wird Nachtwächter in einem Bürokomplex und lernt die jüngere Putzfrau Helga Denningsen und deren Mann Erich kennen. Durch Helga, in die er sich verliebt, fängt Honka wieder mit dem Trinken an. Ein Vergewaltigungsversuch scheitert an ihrem Widerstand. Eines von Honkas letzten Opfern wird eine frühere Zwangsprostituierte und KZ-Insassin. Er misshandelt sie, als er keine Erektion bekommt. Daraufhin rächt sie sich an ihm, indem sie ihm Senf auf seinen Penis streicht, während er schläft. Als sie versucht, Geld von Honka zu stehlen, würgt er sie bewusstlos und erschlägt sie mit mehreren Schnapsflaschen. Der Versuch, der attraktiven Schülerin Petra nachzustellen, schlägt fehl, als ein Brand in seinem Wohnhaus ausbricht. Maden waren zuvor durch die Decke zu den griechischen Nachbarn gedrungen, die daraufhin aus der Wohnung flüchteten und den Herd anließen. Die Feuerwehr findet beim Löschen des Brands Leichenteile und Fritz Honka wird trotz seines Versuches zu fliehen noch vor Ort von der Polizei verhaftet.
Der Film basiert auf dem Roman Der goldene Handschuh von Heinz Strunk. Darin beschreibt er die Taten des Serienmörders Fritz Honka, der seine Opfer im Viertel rund um die Hamburger Reeperbahn und dort unter anderem in der Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ fand.[2] Ende September 2016 wurde Strunk für seinen Roman mit dem Wilhelm-Raabe-Literaturpreis ausgezeichnet.[3] Regie führte Fatih Akin, der auch Strunks Roman für den Film adaptierte.[4] Der Film stellt Akins ersten Ausflug ins Horrorgenre dar. Als Produzentin fungiert Nurhan Şekerci-Porst, mit der gemeinsam Akin bereits Aus dem Nichts realisierte.[5]
Akin sagt, ihm habe an dem Buch gefallen, dass Strunk es geschafft hat, sowohl den Opfern als auch Fritz Honka eine Würde zu geben: „Honka ist für mich nicht ein Serienmörder wie Hannibal Lecter aus Das Schweigen der Lämmer. Der mordet in den USA und ist ohnehin nur eine fiktive Figur. Honka war ein realer Mensch aus meiner Nachbarschaft.“ Er sei eine Angstfigur seiner Kindheit gewesen, und er brauche immer einen persönlichen Zugang zu einem Stoff, so Akin weiter.[6]
Die Kriminalautorin Simone Buchholz meint, Honka habe auf St. Pauli einen ähnlichen Eindruck hinterlassen wie Jack the Ripper in London. Schon als die ersten Gerüchte auftauchten, dass Fatih Akin sich des Stoffs annehmen würde, sei St. Pauli ziemlich aufgeregt gewesen, vor allem weil Akin in Altona aufgewachsen und er damit ein Junge aus der Nachbarschaft ist, erklärt Buchholz.[7]
Die Hauptrolle von Fritz Honka wurde mit dem Schauspieler Jonas Dassler besetzt.[8] Dassler trug während der Dreharbeiten eine Kontaktlinse, die man in London herstellen ließ und anstatt der Iris einen angemalten Glaskörper zeigte, mit dem Honkas starkes Schielen dargestellt werden sollte.[6] Auf diesem Wege wurde eine Figur in der Tradition von Victor Hugos Der Glöckner von Notre-Dame erschaffen, so Fatih Akin.[6] Dassler sagt über seine Darstellung von Honka: „Der Leitsatz dabei war für mich, dass da jemand war, der eigentlich nach einer Normalität, nach einer Bürgerlichkeit gesucht hat. Und der Weg dahin ging leider auch über diese Morde. Dass es eine Frustration über sich selbst gab, die dann ausgebrochen ist.“[9] In weiteren Rollen sind Lars Nagel, Uwe Rohde, Dirk Böhling und Philipp Baltus zu sehen sowie Ohnsorg-Legende Herma Koehn, Tristan Göbel (der Hauptdarsteller aus Akins „Tschick“) und Greta Sophie Schmidt.[10]
Am 2. Juli 2018 wurden die Dreharbeiten auf St. Pauli begonnen[4][2], wo Aufnahmen rund um die Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ entstanden[7], die man nur von außen sieht.[11] Die Kneipe wurde zudem im Maßstab 1:1 nachgebaut. Die Filmsets waren in den Hallen des ehemaligen Überseezentrums in Hamburg-Mitte aufgebaut.[6] Auch Honkas Wohnung wurde hier nachgebaut. Für ihre Entwürfe konnten Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz und der Art Director Seth Turner auch auf Polizeifotos sowie Requisiten aus dem Polizeimuseum zurückgreifen, die nach Honkas Verhaftung entstanden waren. Im Abspann sieht man unter anderem Fotos von Tatortskizzen, Bekleidung der Opfer sowie den „Fuchsschwanz“, das mutmaßliche Tatwerkzeug Honkas.[12] Nach jedem von Honka verübten Mord zog Kunz die Wände ein wenig enger.[6] Im August 2018 drehte man unter anderem an der St.Joseph-Kirche.[13] Ursprünglich waren 31 Drehtage angesetzt, die dann auf 33 verlängert wurden.[6] Als Kameramann fungierte Rainer Klausmann.
Der Film wurde von bombero international in Co-Produktion mit Warner Bros. Film Productions Germany und Pathé produziert.[2] Die Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein gewährte eine Förderung von 750.000 Euro[14], die Filmförderungsanstalt fördert die Produktion mit 520.000 Euro[15][16] und die Staatsministerin für Kultur und Medien Monika Grütters mit 300.000 Euro.[17]
Zwei unterschiedlich lange erste Trailer wurden Mitte Januar 2019 vorgestellt.[18][19] Der Film feierte am 9. Februar 2019 im Rahmen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele Berlin seine Premiere, wo er im Hauptwettbewerb gezeigt wurde.[20] Dort wurde der Film auch mit Audiodeskription vorgeführt.[21] Am 21. Februar 2019 kam er in die deutschen Kinos.[22] Im September 2019 soll er beim Fantastic Fest in Austin gezeigt werden.[23]
In Deutschland erhielt der Film von der FSK keine Jugendfreigabe. Gaby Sikorski von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Kino erklärt hierzu, der Film verzichte zwar weitgehend auf Splatter-Effekte oder auf zur Schau gestellte Gewaltszenen, und das meiste passiere außerhalb des direkten Blickfelds der Kamera, doch blutig werde es trotzdem: „Bei der Betrachtung überwiegen allerdings eher Abneigung und Ekel anstelle von Angst.“[24]
Der Goldene Handschuh erhielt im internationalen Kritikenspiegel der britischen Fachzeitschrift Screen International 1,9 von vier möglichen Sternen und belegte damit gemeinsam mit dem skandinavischen Beitrag Pferde stehlen (Ut og stjæle hester) von Hans Petter Moland einen 12. Platz unter allen 16 Berlinale-Wettbewerbsfilmen. Emin Alpers Eine Geschichte von drei Schwestern und Nadav Lapids Synonymes (je 3,0) führten die Rangliste an.[25]
Fabian Wallmeier vom RBB schreibt, in seinem Versuch, sowohl Fritz Honkas Opfern, als auch dem Mörder selbst mindestens ein letztes Stück Würde zu lassen, sei Fatih Akin krachend gescheitert. Wo Heinz Strunk klar und einfühlsam Bericht erstatte, gehe Akin penetrant in die Vollen: „Die Welt, die er auf die Leinwand bringt, ist ein Witz, eine abstruse Groteske, die vor keiner Zurschaustellung zurückscheut.“ Bei Akin werde aus dem erst 22-jährigen Jonas Dassler mit viel Maskenspachtel eine groteske Mischung aus Nosferatu, David Lynchs Der Elefantenmensch und Horst Schlämmer. Wallmeier resümiert, der Film sei meilenweit von der einfühlsam-nüchternen Romanvorlage entfernt, und Akin zeige kein Gespür für Zwischentöne, sondern weide sich an Ekel und Elend.[26]
Frank Junghänel von der Berliner Zeitung erklärt, Akin habe als Form eine Art Theater-Ästhetik gewählt, und Honkas Absteige erscheine wie eine Bühne, auf der sich ein bestialisches Dachkammerspiel ereignet.[27]
Guy Lodge von Variety verweist in seiner Kritik auf die Filmbiografie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile über Ted Bundy, bei dem sich ebenfalls die Frage aufgetan hatte, wo die Grenze zwischen der reinen Darstellung und der Zelebrierung eines Serienmörders liegt. Der Goldene Handschuh sei weder als eine Studie über gewalttoxische Männlichkeit psychologisch aufschlussreich, noch sei der Film als ein Bericht über ein verderbtes Leben besonders informativ. Der Zuschauer müsse sich die ganze Zeit mit der Ungewissheit herumschlagen, welche unglückliche Frau als nächstes zerstückelt wird und dränge einem gleichzeitig eine Empathie mit einem Psychopathen auf, der eine solch komplexe Investition kaum wert zu sein scheint. Positiv merkt Lodge an, man könne das menschliche Fleisch, das auf der Leinwand verrottet, praktisch riechen.[28]
Auch Deborah Young von The Hollywood Reporter bemerkt Rainer Klausmanns grobkörnige Bilder, die abgeranzte Dachwohnung und die Arbeit von Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz, der hier ein so außergewöhnlich detailliertes Filmset schuf, dass man es förmlich riechen kann. Insgesamt bewege sich der Film jedoch unsicher zwischen einem Horrorfilm und deutschem, schwarzen Humor hin und her, was an Rainer Werner Fassbinder erinnere, hätte er nur ein wenig Mitgefühl für die Leidtragenden übrig, so Young.[29]
Brigitte Häring im SRF analysiert: „Eklig ist der Film auch auf einer zweiten Ebene. Er übernimmt Honkas Haltung und ist erschreckend frauenverachtend. Alle Opfer Honkas bleiben namen- und konturlos. Die Frauen sind nur darauf reduziert, versiffte Trinkerinnen, hässliche Prostituierte zu sein. Sie bleiben Klischees.“ Des Weiteren weist sie darauf hin, dass Akin die Figur einer „bildschönen, blutjungen Frau“ als Fantasieobjekt Honkas dazu-erfunden hat, obwohl dieser im Prozeß angab, von älteren Frauen angezogen worden zu sein. Häring sieht dadurch „die echten Opfer noch mehr abgewertet, und zwar (...) durch den Drehbuchautor und Regisseur Fatih Akin.“[30]
Alice Schwarzer problematisiert ebenfalls die Identifikation Akins mit dem Täter: "Als Motiv für die Auswahl seines Stoffes gab Akin in einem Spiegel-Interview an, ihm seien „die Loser näher“. Er meinte damit nicht Ruth Schult. Auch nicht Gertrud Breuer oder Anna Beuschel. Und auch nicht Frieda Roblick, die zwar das KZ überlebt hat, aber nicht Honka. Akin meinte damit den sadistischen Frauenmörder." Und sie regt an: "Wann eigentlich schreibt eine Schriftstellerin ein Buch über diese vier Frauen – oder eine von ihnen? Und wann verfilmt eine Regisseurin ihr Leben?[31]
In Deutschland verzeichnete der Film 230.045 Besucher.[32]

Zum Soundtrack wurden hauptsächlich sentimentale Schlager-Songs aus den Anfängen der Siebziger Jahre verwendet, die in den Kneipen-Szenen von der Jukebox gespielt werden.[35] Diese sind unter anderem:
Für den Abspann wurde der Song „Wir sind jung, wir sind frei“ von Stein Ingebrigtsen verwendet.
Holiday ist ein Lied von Madonna aus dem Jahr 1983, das von Curtis Hudson und Lisa Stevens geschrieben wurde. Es erschien auf Madonnas erstem Album. Stilistisch stellt Holiday eine Mischung aus Dance-Pop, Synthie-Pop und Funk dar. Es ist in D-Dur geschrieben.
1982 begann Madonna ihr erstes Album aufzunehmen. Die ersten zwei Auskopplungen Everybody und Burning Up erlangten nicht den gewünschten Erfolg. Madonnas internationaler Durchbruch erfolgte mit Holiday. Ursprünglich schrieben Hudson und Stevens den Song für Mary Wilson von den Supremes, doch diese lehnte ab, und Madonna nahm ihn an. Zuvor sollte auch das in letzter Minute geschriebene Stück Ain’t No Big Deal auf dem Album sein. Nach der Annahme von Holiday, arbeitete Madonna mit dem Produzenten John „Jellybean“ Benitez an den Aufnahmen des Songs. Sie fügten noch einige Instrumentierungen hinzu. Das Klaviersolo stammt von Fred Zarr. Nach der Veröffentlichung erfuhr der Hit viel positive Kritik. Bei praktisch jedem Konzert spielte Madonna den Hit, auch im Juli 1985 spielte sie den Song beim Live-Aid-Festival. Nach der Wiederveröffentlichung 1985 wurde Holiday insbesondere in Großbritannien und benachbarten Ländern erfolgreich.
Von dem Titel gab es einige Coverversionen.[3] Bekannt wurde insbesondere die gerappte Coverversion Holiday Rap – mit nahezu komplett anderem Text – von MC Miker G & Deejay Sven, die es 1986 auf Platz eins in Deutschland[4] und der Schweiz[5] schaffte. In Österreich schaffte es die Version auf Platz zwei.[6]
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser ist eine US-amerikanische Jugend-Filmkomödie aus dem Jahr 2018 von Regisseur Ian Samuels mit Shannon Purser, Kristine Frøseth, RJ Cyler und Noah Centineo in den Hauptrollen. Das Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer ist eine moderne Nacherzählung der Geschichte von Cyrano de Bergerac.
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser wurde am 7. September 2018 weltweit auf dem Video-on-Demand-Portal Netflix veröffentlicht.
Sierra Burgess ist ein kluges, aber unbeliebtes Mädchen, das gerne an der Stanford University studieren will. Die beliebte, aber hinterhältige Veronica versucht häufig, Sierras Leben runterzumachen und überschüttet sie mit gemeinen Sprüchen und Kommentaren über ihr Aussehen. Als Jamey, ein süßer Footballspieler, Veronica nach ihrer Nummer fragt, gibt sie ihm stattdessen Sierras Nummer. Veronica hat Jamey die falsche Nummer gegeben, weil sie einen Freund hat, Spence, der auf dem College ist.
Diese Lüge führt dazu, dass Jamey Sierra SMS schreibt und glaubt, dass sie Veronica ist. Nachdem Sierra und Jamey eine Weile miteinander SMS geschrieben und miteinander geflirtet haben, beginnt Sierra, Jamey zu mögen. Ihr ist klar, dass er denkt, er schreibt mit jemand Anderem. Sierra erzählt ihrem besten Freund Dan, dass sie einen Typen getroffen hat. Dan warnt sie, weiter Kontakt mit Jamey zu halten, da sie nur unglücklich wird.
Als Sierra erfährt, dass Jamey glaubt, dass er mit Veronica textet, nähert sich Sierra Veronica an. Da Veronica wegen der kürzlichen Trennung von Spence untröstlich ist, bietet Sierra ihr an, Veronica Nachhilfe zu geben, damit sie intelligenter wirkt. Während der Nachhilfe erfährt Sierra mehr über Veronicas frustrierendes Familienleben und beginnt sich mit ihr anzufreunden. Eines Nachts ruft Jamey Sierra über Video an. Veronica erscheint vor dem Bildschirm, während Sierra im Hintergrund das Gespräch führt. Da die Synchronisation der beiden nicht stimmt, beendet Jamey den Anruf. Die beiden lachen zusammen über die Situation und werden zu Freundinnen.
Als Jamey Sierra, die er für Veronica hält, nach einem Date fragt, geht Veronica als Gefallen für Sierra mit ihm. Als er jedoch versucht, Veronica zu küssen, sagt Veronica ihm, er solle seine Augen schließen und Sierra küsst ihn stattdessen, und Jamey glaubt, dass er Veronica geküsst hat.
Vor einem Footballspiel küsst Jamey Veronica. Veronica ist wütend auf Jamey, weil sie das Gefühl hat, Sierra verraten zu haben. Jamey versteht nicht, warum sie wütend ist, weil er glaubt, dass sie die Person war, die er bei ihrem Date geküsst hat. Sierra sieht den Kuss und glaubt, dass Veronica ihn absichtlich geküsst hat. Als Rache beschließt sie, die Tatsache aufzudecken, dass Veronica von ihrem Ex-Freund über SMS abserviert wurde. Während des Footballspiels erzählt Veronica wütend Jamey die Wahrheit, und als eine panische Sierra versucht sich zu verteidigen und zu erklären, erkennt er ihre Stimme. Jamey ist schockiert von den Ereignissen und will, dass sich Sierra und Veronica von ihm fernhalten. Auch Dan ist von seiner besten Freundin enttäuscht und sagt, dass er sie nicht wieder erkennt.
Sierra schreibt ein Lied namens Sunflower und sendet es als Entschuldigung an Veronica. Veronica schickt das Lied an Jamey und erzählt ihm, was für ein großartiges Mädchen Sierra wirklich ist. Er vergibt Sierra, küsst sie und lädt sie zum Homecoming-Ball ein. Auf dem Ball versöhnt sich Sierra mit Veronica und Dan.
Der Film wurde erstmals im September 2016 als moderne Nacherzählung der Cyrano-de-Bergerac-Geschichte angekündigt, die von Ian Samuels nach einem Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer inszeniert werden soll.[1] Die männliche Hauptrolle wurde mit Ben Hardy besetzt.[1] Zur selben Zeit wurde bekannt, dass Molly Smith und Thad Luckinbills Produktionsstudio Black Label Media den Film produzieren werden, wobei Beer ausführende Produzentin wird.[1]
Die titelgebende Hauptrolle wurde Anfang Januar 2017 mit der aus Stranger Things bekannten Shannon Purser besetzt.[2] Weitere zentralen Rollen gingen an RJ Cyler, Kristine Frøseth, Will Peltz, Lea Thompson, Alan Ruck und Chrissy Metz. Am 1. Februar 2018 wurde bekannt, dass Noah Centineo die männliche Hauptrolle übernehmen wird, und somit Hardy, der das Projekt verließ, ersetzen wird.[3]
Im Juli 2017 gab Songwriter und Musiker Leland bekannt, dass er mit Bram Inscore Musik den Soundtrack für den Film komponiert. Außerdem enthüllte er, dass auch jeweils einen Song für Troye Sivan und Allie X geschrieben wurden, der in dem Film zu hören sei. Zudem wurde ein Originallied namens Sunflower zusammen mit der Drehbuchautorin Lindsey Beer geschrieben und von Shannon Purser gesungen.
Am 18. Januar 2018 wurde bekannt gegeben, dass Netflix die Rechte an dem Film erworben hat.[4] Die Veröffentlichung fand weltweit am 7. September 2018 statt.
Die deutsche Synchronisation entstand nach einem Dialogbuch von Jan Fabian Krüger unter der Dialogregie von Michael Ernst durch die Synchronfirma RRP Media UG in Berlin[5].
Der Film erhielt überwiegend positive Kritiken. Bei Metacritic erhielt der Film einen Metascore von 60/100 basierend auf 14 Rezensionen,[7] bei Rotten Tomatoes waren 65 Prozent der 23 Rezensionen positiv.[8]
Markus Fiedler von Filmstarts.de urteilt über den Film: „Eine starke Shannon Purser, ein paar düstere Einsprengsel in der Handlung und ein guter Soundtrack geben diesem ansonsten recht süßen Netflix-Bonbon genug Geschmack, um trotz des Mangels an eigenen Ideen Spaß zu machen.“[9]
Helden der Freizent meint, dass der Film auf „emotionaler, moralischer und intellektueller Ebene […] durchaus gelungen“ sei. Außerdem urteilen sie, dass der „gute Cast den Streifen über den Durchschnitt hebe“.[10]
Thomas Pill (* 21. Juni 1980 in Augsburg) ist ein deutscher Filmregisseur und Filmschauspieler aus dem Bereich des Independentfilms.
Mit Anfang 20 sah Genrefan Thomas Pill den Ittenbach-Film „Premutos – Der gefallene Engel“ an, der ihn mit seinen handgemachten Effekten nachhaltig beeindruckt hat. Einige Jahre später durfte Pill dann bei dem Ittenbach-Film und Crowdfunding-Projekt „Legend of Hell“ als Statist mit dabei sein. Später hatte er einen größeren Auftritt in dessen „Savage Love“, bei dem er auch Schauspieler Dustin Semmelrogge kennen lernte. Diesen konnte er von seinem Drehbuch zu „Das kalte Gericht“ überzeugen, einem als Kurzfilm angelegtes Filmprojekt, bei dem Semmelrogge anschließend zusagt. Auch Eva Habermann und Giulia Siegel waren mit von Der Partie. In den Jahren 2011 bis 2015 wurde dieser mit einer Spiegelreflex-Kamera klein gehaltene Film gedreht, ständig um Szenen erweitert und umgeschrieben. Ittenbach übernahm sogar eine freundschaftliche Gastrolle als Kneipenwirt. Der Vertrieb von Pills Debüt erfolgte im Jahr 2016 über SchröderMedia, allerdings in einer in Deutschland zensierten Fassung. Dazwischen inszenierte Pill den Kurzfilm „Eifersucht“ mit Eva Habermann, Dave Kaufmann und Raphael Stark, der später auf einigen Festivals lief.
Im Jahr 2013 belegte Pill einen Kurs für „Filmemachen und Regie“ an der Münchener Film Akademie und einen Schauspielworkshop an der ISSA in München. 2015 gründete er seine Filmproduktion „Wizzard Movie Entertainment“. Im Jahr 2016 drehte er zusammen mit Michael Effenberger den vorfinanzierten „Alice – The Darkest Hour.“ Für Alice konnte er mit Claude Oliver Rudolf, Sven Martinek, Anouscka Renzi, Eva Mähl und Helmut Krauss wieder renommierte Schauspieler verpflichten. Mit geringen Mitteln und kleinem Budget versucht Pill seine Projekte voran zu treiben und umzusetzen. 2018 drehte Thomas Pill den Spielfilm "Stories of the dead" wieder mit Eva Habermann und Giulia Siegel sowie Ralf Richter, Florian Simbeck und Alfonso Losa. Ein langwieriges Projekt ist das 2014 angefangene und in der Szene umstrittene Filmprojekt „Grimms Kinder“, Alternativtitel "Boten des Todes", ein Episoden-Horrorfilm, der 2020 weiter produziert werden soll.
Pill lebt und arbeitet in Augsburg. Er ist Vater eines Kindes, dessen Taufpate sein Freund Regisseur Michael Effenberger (La Isla) ist.
Stephanie – Das Böse in ihr (Originaltitel: Stephanie) ist ein US-amerikanischer Fantasy-Horrorfilm von Regisseur Akiva Goldsman aus dem Jahr 2017. Der Film ist eine Produktion von Blumhouse Productions in Zusammenarbeit mit The Gotham Group im Verleih von Universal Pictures und feierte am 27. April 2017 auf dem amerikanischen The Overlook Film Festival im Timberline Lodge-Gebirgshotel Premiere.[3][4] In den Hauptrollen sind Anna Torv und Frank Grillo sowie Shree Crooks in der Titelrolle zu sehen.[5]
Während einer globalen Pandemie in näherer Zukunft ist die junge verwaiste Stephanie allein in einem großen und verlassenen Haus, ohne dass sich jemand um sie kümmern oder sich für sie interessieren würde. Nur mit ihrer Kuscheltier-Schildkröte Francis und dem tot in seinem Bett liegenden Bruder Paul redend, ernährt sie sich unter anderem von eingeweckten Früchten und Marmelade, als eine schattenhafte und dunkle übernatürliche Kraft scheinbar beginnt, das Kind zu verfolgen und sich seiner zu bemächtigen versucht. Als die Eltern nach längerer Zeit unerwartet zurückkehren, entschuldigen sie sich, dass sie Stephanie allein zurücklassen mussten. Sie begraben Pauls Leiche an einem Baum und versuchen, ihrer Tochter ein normales Leben zu ermöglichen. Stephanies Vater Eric trägt jedoch immer eine Waffe in seinem Gürtel und beginnt, eine Schutzwand vor dem Haus zu errichten, um das „Monster“ vom Anwesen fernzuhalten. Als sich Stephanies Mutter Jane am Morgen auszieht, werden große Narben auf ihrem Bauch in Form von Ringen sichtbar, welche wie die Tentakel eines Oktopus aussehen. Später in der Nacht wird Pauls Leiche durch das Dachfenster zurück in sein Bett geworfen, was den Eltern erneut große Angst und emotionalen Schmerz bereitet, Stephanie hingegen scheint völlig unberührt von dem Vorfall. Es stellt sich heraus, dass die Eltern zuvor geflüchtet waren, weil Stephanies Telekinese, die in Form von riesigen Tentakeln auftritt und Paul das Genick brach, da er sie ärgerte, ebenso Stephanies Eltern angegriffen hatte, um das Mädchen zu „beschützen“. Ebenso wird enthüllt, dass weitere Kinder von einer Art Krankheit heimgesucht werden und zu Monstern mit telekinetischen Kräften mutieren würden.
Durch die Eltern wird zudem enthüllt, dass sie gehen mussten, um nach einer Lösung für das Problem mit dem „Monster“ zu suchen und dass es in Wahrheit keine Monster gibt, sondern Stephanie die ganze Zeit über das „Monster“ gewesen war. Die schattenhafte Gestalt wurde vermutlich durch Stephanies Ängste und die daraus resultierenden Halluzinationen hervorgerufen. Nach einem weiteren lebensbedrohenden Vorfall mit Stephanie, betäubt Jane das Mädchen und versucht nun, eine Gehirnoperation an dem Kind durchzuführen, um dessen immense Kräfte zu neutralisieren. Stephanie wacht jedoch auf, bevor sie zu operieren beginnen kann, zerstört telekinetisch das Labor sowie die Ausrüstung und verletzt die Eltern leicht. In verschiedenen Nachrichtensendungen werden die apokalyptischen Ereignisse und das mörderische, telekinetische Verhalten der Kinder wie Stephanies auf der ganzen Welt offenbart und dass es keine Heilung für ihre Kräfte und die daraus resultierenden Mordtaten gibt, sodass die betroffenen Kinder getötet werden müssen, um eine weitere Ausbreitung zu verhindern.
Am nächsten Morgen tut Stephanie so, als sei nichts geschehen. Die Eltern hingegen planen die Ermordung ihrer Tochter, indem sie heißen Kakao vergiften und in eine Thermosflasche abfüllen. Als Eric das Kind über das Anwesen der kleinen Familie führt, erklärt er dem Mädchen seine Theorie, dass während der Amokläufe eine dämonische Macht Besitz von Stephanie sowie den anderen Kinder ergreifen würde. In diesem Zustand entwickelt Stephanie gelegentlich dunkle Flecken in ihrem Gesicht, was seiner Theorie zusätzlich Glaubwürdigkeit verleiht. Als Stephanie später den Kakao zu trinken beginnt, wird ihr das Getränk durch deren telekinetischen Kräfte aus der Hand geschlagen. Daraufhin verändern sich ihre Augen, ihr Gesicht bekommt erneut dunkle Flecken und sie greift Eric an. Dabei sagt sie ihm, dass er sie hätte töten sollen, als er die Chance dazu gehabt habe. Eric wehrt sich hingegen, zieht seine Waffe und erschießt Stephanie, die offensichtlich stirbt und am Boden liegen bleibt. Er kehrt anschließend zurück zum Haus, um eine Schaufel zu holen und die Eltern beginnen, um ihre Tochter zu weinen und zu trauern. Stephanie kommt jedoch wenig später unverletzt zum Haus zurück, da ihre telekinetischen Kräfte die Kugeln scheinbar aufgehalten und niedergeschlagen haben, bevor sie das Mädchen verletzen konnten. Stephanie bahnt sich nun den Weg ins Innere des Hauses und beginnt, ihre Eltern zu foltern und zu töten. Währenddessen sagt Stephanie ihrem Vater, dass sie hätten wegbleiben und nicht mehr zurückkommen sollen. Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern hebt sie ihre ausgestopfte Schildkröte auf, zerstört telekinetisch das Haus und geht die Leichen hinter sich herziehend nach draußen, um diese zu Pauls Grab am Baum zu bringen. An weiteren Häusern der Nachbarschaft angekommen, lässt sie das Plüschtier jedoch fallen und tritt darüber, da sie nun endgültig und vollständig der dämonische Kraft verfallen zu sein scheint und beginnt, alle übrigen Häuser zu zerstören. Während sie dies tut, hat ihr Schatten lange Tentakeln, obwohl ihre telekinetischen Arme selbst für andere Menschen unsichtbar sind.
Der Film endet damit, dass ein Zoom weg von der Erde zu zeigen beginnt, dass sich Feuer auf der ganzen Welt verteilt ausbreiten, sodass sich auch die anderen telekinetischen Kinder auf ähnliche Weise zu verhalten scheinen und vielerorts die gleichen Zerstörungen und Vernichtungen anrichten wie Stephanie.
Im Juni 2014 berichtete Deadline.com, dass der für das beste adaptierte Drehbuch von A Beautiful Mind – Genie und Wahnsinn mit einem Oscar und Golden Globe Award ausgezeichnete Drehbuchautor, Filmproduzent und Regisseur Akiva Goldsman für die Inszenierung der Blumhouse-Produktion Stephanie engagiert wurde und Universal Pictures für die Vermarktung des Films zuständig sein wird.[6][7] Das Drehbuch wurde von Ben Collins und Luke Piotrowski beigesteuert.[7] Am 27. Januar 2015 berichtete TheWrap.com, dass Frank Grillo eine Hauptrolle im Film übernehmen wird.[6] Einen Tag später berichtete das Newsmagazin zudem, dass die Schauspielerinnen Anna Torv und Shree Crooks für weitere Hauptrollen besetzt wurden.[8] Im April 2015 wurde außerdem bekannt, dass der koreanisch-stämmige Schauspieler Kenneth Choi für das Filmprojekt gewonnen werden konnte.[9]
Die Musik zu Stephanie wurde von dem US-amerikanischen Filmkomponisten Nathan Whitehead beigesteuert. Das Soundtrack-Album war am 20. April 2018 von dem zu Universal gehörenden Filmmusik-Independent-Label Back Lot Music veröffentlicht worden.[10]
Stephanie wurde am 27. April 2017 als Eröffnungsfilm auf dem US-amerikanischen The Overlook Film Festival im Timberline Lodge-Gebirgshotel erstmals der Weltöffentlichkeit präsentiert.[11][12] Universal Pictures veröffentlichte den Film jedoch nicht in den deutschen Kinos, sondern am 23. August 2018 direkt auf Blu-ray und DVD sowie als Video-on-Demand.[13] Für die Veröffentlichung im Heimkino-Markt wurde Stephanie gegenüber der 89-minütigen[3] The Overlook Film Festival-Schnittfassung um etwa 3 Minuten auf 86 Minuten gekürzt. Dabei fielen ein einführender Prolog der zeigt, dass Stephanie in einem futuristischen Amerika des Jahres 2027 angesiedelt sein sollte sowie Szenen in einer Militärbasis der Schere zum Opfer.[12][14] Durch die Kürzungen wurde die komplette Nebenbesetzung nahezu vollständig herausgeschnitten und es blieben mit wenigen Ausnahmen die drei Hauptdarsteller übrig.[12][14]
Lutz Granert von Filmstarts.de vergibt 3,0 von 5 Sternen und resümiert, dass Akiva Goldsmans Horrorthriller zwar durch ein paar originelle Ideen und mit einer unheilvollen Atmosphäre überzeuge, die Handlung jedoch einige Hänger aufweise. Er zieht letztlich das Fazit:

2020.06.16 10:26 JadedBrilliant Der film:"Stories Of The Dead – Die Farm"

Don’t Move ist ein italienischer Spielfilm aus dem Jahre 2004. Der Film entstand nach einem Roman von Margaret Mazzantini, die auch am Drehbuch mitgearbeitet hat.
Timoteo ist Chirurg in einer römischen Klinik. Seine 15-jährige Tochter Angela wird nach einem schweren Mopedunfall in diese Klinik eingeliefert. Während die Tochter im Koma liegt, denkt Timoteo an die Zeit vor 15 Jahren zurück. Er lebte mit seiner schönen Frau Elsa, die neben ihrer Schönheit auch als Businesswoman erfolgreich ist. Auf dem Weg zu ihr ins luxuriöse Wochenendhaus am Meer hat Timoteo eine Autopanne. In einer unwirtlichen Vorstadtgegend sucht er nach Hilfe und trifft auf Italia. Italia ist ein Unterschichtkind, das in einem kleinen Haus inmitten einer Hochhausbaulandschaft wohnt. Dorthin geht sie mit ihm und erlaubt ihm zu telefonieren. Die billig gekleidete Italia ist das genaue Gegenteil seiner Frau Elsa. Timoteo fühlt sich von ihr angezogen. Nachdem sein Auto repariert wurde, verabschiedet er sich von Italia. Im Glauben sie niemals wiederzusehen, vergewaltigt er sie. Verstört von diesem Vorfall fährt er nach dem Wochenende im Luxus mit seiner Frau wieder zu ihr, um sich zu entschuldigen. Sie treffen sich fortan regelmäßig und es entwickelt sich eine Liebesaffäre, die sich zu einem Doppelleben des erfolgreichen Chirurgen entwickelt.
Italia und Elsa werden in diesem Zeitraum beide von Timoteo schwanger. Timoteo weiß, dass jetzt die Zeit der Trennung von Italia gekommen ist. Er erzählt ihr von einer schweren Krankheit seiner Frau und dass er sie deshalb nicht verlassen könne. Als Italia erfährt, dass Elsa auch schwanger ist, entschließt sie sich ihr Kind illegal abzutreiben. Timoteo trifft Italia zufällig in der Stadt und beschließt sein Leben zu verändern. Er möchte nur noch mit Italia zusammen sein, obwohl seine Frau Elsa im neunten Monat kurz vor der Entbindung steht. Nach der Entbindung fährt er mit Italia in ihre Heimatregion und träumt von einem Neubeginn seines Lebens. In der Nacht kommt es bei Italia zu Komplikationen aufgrund ihrer fehlerhaften Abtreibung. Timoteo bringt sie in ein Krankenhaus und operiert sie selbst. Ihr Körper ist jedoch soweit vergiftet, dass sie nach der Operation stirbt.
15 Jahre später glaubt Timoteo, dass die tote Italia schützend über das Leben seiner Tochter Angela wacht und tatsächlich gelingt die schwere Gehirnoperation und Angela überlebt.

Schöne heile Welt steht für:
Der Goldene Handschuh ist ein deutsch-französisches Filmdrama von Fatih Akin über den Frauenmörder Fritz Honka aus dem Hamburger Kiezmilieu der 1970er Jahre. Der Film basiert auf einem gleichnamigen Roman von Heinz Strunk und feierte am 9. Februar 2019 im Rahmen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele Berlin seine Premiere, wo er im Hauptwettbewerb gezeigt wurde. Der Kinostart in Deutschland war am 21. Februar 2019.
Hamburg-St. Pauli, 1970: Der Hilfsarbeiter Fritz Honka verbringt seine Abende meistens in der Kiezkneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“. Mit seinem deformierten Gesicht, seiner Brille mit Kassengestell, seinem starken Schielen und seinem Sächseln gilt „Fiete“ dort als harmlos und schüchtern. Von seinem Gastwirt lässt er ältere, einsame Frauen ansprechen und lädt diese auf alkoholische Getränke ein. Als er eines Tages eine Frau für Sex mit in seine kleine, mit zahlreichen Pin-Up-Bildern versehene Mansardenwohnung nimmt, tötet er sie. Um keinen Verdacht im Haus zu erregen, zerstückelt Honka die Leiche und legt einige Einzelteile in der Umgebung ab. Bei seinen späteren Verbrechen deponiert er die zerstückelten Leichenteile hinter den Verkleidungen unterhalb der Dachschrägen. Den Verwesungsgeruch versucht er mit Wunderbäumen zu überdecken. Gegenüber seinen Gästen gibt er stets den Kochkünsten der unter ihm lebenden griechischen Gastarbeiterfamilie die Schuld am penetranten Gestank.
Vier Jahre später nimmt Honka die ältere Wienerin Gerda aus der Kneipe mit zu sich nach Hause. Als er aufgrund seiner massiven Alkoholisierung keine Erektion bekommt, penetriert er sie mit einem Kochlöffel. Am nächsten Tag nach seiner Heimkehr von der Arbeit, ist Gerda immer noch nicht aus seiner Wohnung verschwunden. Aus Wut schlägt er sie, lässt sie aber weiter bei sich wohnen, nachdem er feststellt, dass sie die Wohnung aufgeräumt hat. Honka zwingt Gerda zu erniedrigendem Geschlechtsverkehr und setzt einen Vertrag auf, um sie als Sklavin zu halten. Auch soll sie ihm ihre 30-jährige Tochter Rosi zuführen. Gleichzeitig gefällt es Honka, dass er von Gerda als „Chef“ angeredet wird. Neben ihr und seinen Saufkumpanen bleibt ihm als einzige Bezugsperson sein Bruder Siggi, der seit einer Trennung ebenfalls dem Alkohol zugeneigt ist. Gerda verlässt Honka, als sie nach den zahlreichen Erniedrigungen eines Tages im Goldenen Handschuh von Gisela, einer Majorin der Heilsarmee, mitgenommen wird, die ihr ein besseres Leben in Aussicht stellt. Wütend nimmt er die älteren Anna und Inge mit zu sich nach Hause. Während Honka Inge gewaltsam zum Sex zwingen will, flüchtet diese. Er tötet daraufhin die noch in seiner Wohnung verbliebene Anna.
Als Honka von einem Auto angefahren wird, plant er einen Neuanfang ohne Alkohol. Er wird Nachtwächter in einem Bürokomplex und lernt die jüngere Putzfrau Helga Denningsen und deren Mann Erich kennen. Durch Helga, in die er sich verliebt, fängt Honka wieder mit dem Trinken an. Ein Vergewaltigungsversuch scheitert an ihrem Widerstand. Eines von Honkas letzten Opfern wird eine frühere Zwangsprostituierte und KZ-Insassin. Er misshandelt sie, als er keine Erektion bekommt. Daraufhin rächt sie sich an ihm, indem sie ihm Senf auf seinen Penis streicht, während er schläft. Als sie versucht, Geld von Honka zu stehlen, würgt er sie bewusstlos und erschlägt sie mit mehreren Schnapsflaschen. Der Versuch, der attraktiven Schülerin Petra nachzustellen, schlägt fehl, als ein Brand in seinem Wohnhaus ausbricht. Maden waren zuvor durch die Decke zu den griechischen Nachbarn gedrungen, die daraufhin aus der Wohnung flüchteten und den Herd anließen. Die Feuerwehr findet beim Löschen des Brands Leichenteile und Fritz Honka wird trotz seines Versuches zu fliehen noch vor Ort von der Polizei verhaftet.
Der Film basiert auf dem Roman Der goldene Handschuh von Heinz Strunk. Darin beschreibt er die Taten des Serienmörders Fritz Honka, der seine Opfer im Viertel rund um die Hamburger Reeperbahn und dort unter anderem in der Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ fand.[2] Ende September 2016 wurde Strunk für seinen Roman mit dem Wilhelm-Raabe-Literaturpreis ausgezeichnet.[3] Regie führte Fatih Akin, der auch Strunks Roman für den Film adaptierte.[4] Der Film stellt Akins ersten Ausflug ins Horrorgenre dar. Als Produzentin fungiert Nurhan Şekerci-Porst, mit der gemeinsam Akin bereits Aus dem Nichts realisierte.[5]
Akin sagt, ihm habe an dem Buch gefallen, dass Strunk es geschafft hat, sowohl den Opfern als auch Fritz Honka eine Würde zu geben: „Honka ist für mich nicht ein Serienmörder wie Hannibal Lecter aus Das Schweigen der Lämmer. Der mordet in den USA und ist ohnehin nur eine fiktive Figur. Honka war ein realer Mensch aus meiner Nachbarschaft.“ Er sei eine Angstfigur seiner Kindheit gewesen, und er brauche immer einen persönlichen Zugang zu einem Stoff, so Akin weiter.[6]
Die Kriminalautorin Simone Buchholz meint, Honka habe auf St. Pauli einen ähnlichen Eindruck hinterlassen wie Jack the Ripper in London. Schon als die ersten Gerüchte auftauchten, dass Fatih Akin sich des Stoffs annehmen würde, sei St. Pauli ziemlich aufgeregt gewesen, vor allem weil Akin in Altona aufgewachsen und er damit ein Junge aus der Nachbarschaft ist, erklärt Buchholz.[7]
Die Hauptrolle von Fritz Honka wurde mit dem Schauspieler Jonas Dassler besetzt.[8] Dassler trug während der Dreharbeiten eine Kontaktlinse, die man in London herstellen ließ und anstatt der Iris einen angemalten Glaskörper zeigte, mit dem Honkas starkes Schielen dargestellt werden sollte.[6] Auf diesem Wege wurde eine Figur in der Tradition von Victor Hugos Der Glöckner von Notre-Dame erschaffen, so Fatih Akin.[6] Dassler sagt über seine Darstellung von Honka: „Der Leitsatz dabei war für mich, dass da jemand war, der eigentlich nach einer Normalität, nach einer Bürgerlichkeit gesucht hat. Und der Weg dahin ging leider auch über diese Morde. Dass es eine Frustration über sich selbst gab, die dann ausgebrochen ist.“[9] In weiteren Rollen sind Lars Nagel, Uwe Rohde, Dirk Böhling und Philipp Baltus zu sehen sowie Ohnsorg-Legende Herma Koehn, Tristan Göbel (der Hauptdarsteller aus Akins „Tschick“) und Greta Sophie Schmidt.[10]
Am 2. Juli 2018 wurden die Dreharbeiten auf St. Pauli begonnen[4][2], wo Aufnahmen rund um die Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ entstanden[7], die man nur von außen sieht.[11] Die Kneipe wurde zudem im Maßstab 1:1 nachgebaut. Die Filmsets waren in den Hallen des ehemaligen Überseezentrums in Hamburg-Mitte aufgebaut.[6] Auch Honkas Wohnung wurde hier nachgebaut. Für ihre Entwürfe konnten Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz und der Art Director Seth Turner auch auf Polizeifotos sowie Requisiten aus dem Polizeimuseum zurückgreifen, die nach Honkas Verhaftung entstanden waren. Im Abspann sieht man unter anderem Fotos von Tatortskizzen, Bekleidung der Opfer sowie den „Fuchsschwanz“, das mutmaßliche Tatwerkzeug Honkas.[12] Nach jedem von Honka verübten Mord zog Kunz die Wände ein wenig enger.[6] Im August 2018 drehte man unter anderem an der St.Joseph-Kirche.[13] Ursprünglich waren 31 Drehtage angesetzt, die dann auf 33 verlängert wurden.[6] Als Kameramann fungierte Rainer Klausmann.
Der Film wurde von bombero international in Co-Produktion mit Warner Bros. Film Productions Germany und Pathé produziert.[2] Die Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein gewährte eine Förderung von 750.000 Euro[14], die Filmförderungsanstalt fördert die Produktion mit 520.000 Euro[15][16] und die Staatsministerin für Kultur und Medien Monika Grütters mit 300.000 Euro.[17]
Zwei unterschiedlich lange erste Trailer wurden Mitte Januar 2019 vorgestellt.[18][19] Der Film feierte am 9. Februar 2019 im Rahmen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele Berlin seine Premiere, wo er im Hauptwettbewerb gezeigt wurde.[20] Dort wurde der Film auch mit Audiodeskription vorgeführt.[21] Am 21. Februar 2019 kam er in die deutschen Kinos.[22] Im September 2019 soll er beim Fantastic Fest in Austin gezeigt werden.[23]
In Deutschland erhielt der Film von der FSK keine Jugendfreigabe. Gaby Sikorski von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Kino erklärt hierzu, der Film verzichte zwar weitgehend auf Splatter-Effekte oder auf zur Schau gestellte Gewaltszenen, und das meiste passiere außerhalb des direkten Blickfelds der Kamera, doch blutig werde es trotzdem: „Bei der Betrachtung überwiegen allerdings eher Abneigung und Ekel anstelle von Angst.“[24]
Der Goldene Handschuh erhielt im internationalen Kritikenspiegel der britischen Fachzeitschrift Screen International 1,9 von vier möglichen Sternen und belegte damit gemeinsam mit dem skandinavischen Beitrag Pferde stehlen (Ut og stjæle hester) von Hans Petter Moland einen 12. Platz unter allen 16 Berlinale-Wettbewerbsfilmen. Emin Alpers Eine Geschichte von drei Schwestern und Nadav Lapids Synonymes (je 3,0) führten die Rangliste an.[25]
Fabian Wallmeier vom RBB schreibt, in seinem Versuch, sowohl Fritz Honkas Opfern, als auch dem Mörder selbst mindestens ein letztes Stück Würde zu lassen, sei Fatih Akin krachend gescheitert. Wo Heinz Strunk klar und einfühlsam Bericht erstatte, gehe Akin penetrant in die Vollen: „Die Welt, die er auf die Leinwand bringt, ist ein Witz, eine abstruse Groteske, die vor keiner Zurschaustellung zurückscheut.“ Bei Akin werde aus dem erst 22-jährigen Jonas Dassler mit viel Maskenspachtel eine groteske Mischung aus Nosferatu, David Lynchs Der Elefantenmensch und Horst Schlämmer. Wallmeier resümiert, der Film sei meilenweit von der einfühlsam-nüchternen Romanvorlage entfernt, und Akin zeige kein Gespür für Zwischentöne, sondern weide sich an Ekel und Elend.[26]
Frank Junghänel von der Berliner Zeitung erklärt, Akin habe als Form eine Art Theater-Ästhetik gewählt, und Honkas Absteige erscheine wie eine Bühne, auf der sich ein bestialisches Dachkammerspiel ereignet.[27]
Guy Lodge von Variety verweist in seiner Kritik auf die Filmbiografie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile über Ted Bundy, bei dem sich ebenfalls die Frage aufgetan hatte, wo die Grenze zwischen der reinen Darstellung und der Zelebrierung eines Serienmörders liegt. Der Goldene Handschuh sei weder als eine Studie über gewalttoxische Männlichkeit psychologisch aufschlussreich, noch sei der Film als ein Bericht über ein verderbtes Leben besonders informativ. Der Zuschauer müsse sich die ganze Zeit mit der Ungewissheit herumschlagen, welche unglückliche Frau als nächstes zerstückelt wird und dränge einem gleichzeitig eine Empathie mit einem Psychopathen auf, der eine solch komplexe Investition kaum wert zu sein scheint. Positiv merkt Lodge an, man könne das menschliche Fleisch, das auf der Leinwand verrottet, praktisch riechen.[28]
Auch Deborah Young von The Hollywood Reporter bemerkt Rainer Klausmanns grobkörnige Bilder, die abgeranzte Dachwohnung und die Arbeit von Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz, der hier ein so außergewöhnlich detailliertes Filmset schuf, dass man es förmlich riechen kann. Insgesamt bewege sich der Film jedoch unsicher zwischen einem Horrorfilm und deutschem, schwarzen Humor hin und her, was an Rainer Werner Fassbinder erinnere, hätte er nur ein wenig Mitgefühl für die Leidtragenden übrig, so Young.[29]
Brigitte Häring im SRF analysiert: „Eklig ist der Film auch auf einer zweiten Ebene. Er übernimmt Honkas Haltung und ist erschreckend frauenverachtend. Alle Opfer Honkas bleiben namen- und konturlos. Die Frauen sind nur darauf reduziert, versiffte Trinkerinnen, hässliche Prostituierte zu sein. Sie bleiben Klischees.“ Des Weiteren weist sie darauf hin, dass Akin die Figur einer „bildschönen, blutjungen Frau“ als Fantasieobjekt Honkas dazu-erfunden hat, obwohl dieser im Prozeß angab, von älteren Frauen angezogen worden zu sein. Häring sieht dadurch „die echten Opfer noch mehr abgewertet, und zwar (...) durch den Drehbuchautor und Regisseur Fatih Akin.“[30]
Alice Schwarzer problematisiert ebenfalls die Identifikation Akins mit dem Täter: "Als Motiv für die Auswahl seines Stoffes gab Akin in einem Spiegel-Interview an, ihm seien „die Loser näher“. Er meinte damit nicht Ruth Schult. Auch nicht Gertrud Breuer oder Anna Beuschel. Und auch nicht Frieda Roblick, die zwar das KZ überlebt hat, aber nicht Honka. Akin meinte damit den sadistischen Frauenmörder." Und sie regt an: "Wann eigentlich schreibt eine Schriftstellerin ein Buch über diese vier Frauen – oder eine von ihnen? Und wann verfilmt eine Regisseurin ihr Leben?[31]
In Deutschland verzeichnete der Film 230.045 Besucher.[32]

Zum Soundtrack wurden hauptsächlich sentimentale Schlager-Songs aus den Anfängen der Siebziger Jahre verwendet, die in den Kneipen-Szenen von der Jukebox gespielt werden.[35] Diese sind unter anderem:
Für den Abspann wurde der Song „Wir sind jung, wir sind frei“ von Stein Ingebrigtsen verwendet.
Holiday ist ein Lied von Madonna aus dem Jahr 1983, das von Curtis Hudson und Lisa Stevens geschrieben wurde. Es erschien auf Madonnas erstem Album. Stilistisch stellt Holiday eine Mischung aus Dance-Pop, Synthie-Pop und Funk dar. Es ist in D-Dur geschrieben.
1982 begann Madonna ihr erstes Album aufzunehmen. Die ersten zwei Auskopplungen Everybody und Burning Up erlangten nicht den gewünschten Erfolg. Madonnas internationaler Durchbruch erfolgte mit Holiday. Ursprünglich schrieben Hudson und Stevens den Song für Mary Wilson von den Supremes, doch diese lehnte ab, und Madonna nahm ihn an. Zuvor sollte auch das in letzter Minute geschriebene Stück Ain’t No Big Deal auf dem Album sein. Nach der Annahme von Holiday, arbeitete Madonna mit dem Produzenten John „Jellybean“ Benitez an den Aufnahmen des Songs. Sie fügten noch einige Instrumentierungen hinzu. Das Klaviersolo stammt von Fred Zarr. Nach der Veröffentlichung erfuhr der Hit viel positive Kritik. Bei praktisch jedem Konzert spielte Madonna den Hit, auch im Juli 1985 spielte sie den Song beim Live-Aid-Festival. Nach der Wiederveröffentlichung 1985 wurde Holiday insbesondere in Großbritannien und benachbarten Ländern erfolgreich.
Von dem Titel gab es einige Coverversionen.[3] Bekannt wurde insbesondere die gerappte Coverversion Holiday Rap – mit nahezu komplett anderem Text – von MC Miker G & Deejay Sven, die es 1986 auf Platz eins in Deutschland[4] und der Schweiz[5] schaffte. In Österreich schaffte es die Version auf Platz zwei.[6]
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser ist eine US-amerikanische Jugend-Filmkomödie aus dem Jahr 2018 von Regisseur Ian Samuels mit Shannon Purser, Kristine Frøseth, RJ Cyler und Noah Centineo in den Hauptrollen. Das Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer ist eine moderne Nacherzählung der Geschichte von Cyrano de Bergerac.
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser wurde am 7. September 2018 weltweit auf dem Video-on-Demand-Portal Netflix veröffentlicht.
Sierra Burgess ist ein kluges, aber unbeliebtes Mädchen, das gerne an der Stanford University studieren will. Die beliebte, aber hinterhältige Veronica versucht häufig, Sierras Leben runterzumachen und überschüttet sie mit gemeinen Sprüchen und Kommentaren über ihr Aussehen. Als Jamey, ein süßer Footballspieler, Veronica nach ihrer Nummer fragt, gibt sie ihm stattdessen Sierras Nummer. Veronica hat Jamey die falsche Nummer gegeben, weil sie einen Freund hat, Spence, der auf dem College ist.
Diese Lüge führt dazu, dass Jamey Sierra SMS schreibt und glaubt, dass sie Veronica ist. Nachdem Sierra und Jamey eine Weile miteinander SMS geschrieben und miteinander geflirtet haben, beginnt Sierra, Jamey zu mögen. Ihr ist klar, dass er denkt, er schreibt mit jemand Anderem. Sierra erzählt ihrem besten Freund Dan, dass sie einen Typen getroffen hat. Dan warnt sie, weiter Kontakt mit Jamey zu halten, da sie nur unglücklich wird.
Als Sierra erfährt, dass Jamey glaubt, dass er mit Veronica textet, nähert sich Sierra Veronica an. Da Veronica wegen der kürzlichen Trennung von Spence untröstlich ist, bietet Sierra ihr an, Veronica Nachhilfe zu geben, damit sie intelligenter wirkt. Während der Nachhilfe erfährt Sierra mehr über Veronicas frustrierendes Familienleben und beginnt sich mit ihr anzufreunden. Eines Nachts ruft Jamey Sierra über Video an. Veronica erscheint vor dem Bildschirm, während Sierra im Hintergrund das Gespräch führt. Da die Synchronisation der beiden nicht stimmt, beendet Jamey den Anruf. Die beiden lachen zusammen über die Situation und werden zu Freundinnen.
Als Jamey Sierra, die er für Veronica hält, nach einem Date fragt, geht Veronica als Gefallen für Sierra mit ihm. Als er jedoch versucht, Veronica zu küssen, sagt Veronica ihm, er solle seine Augen schließen und Sierra küsst ihn stattdessen, und Jamey glaubt, dass er Veronica geküsst hat.
Vor einem Footballspiel küsst Jamey Veronica. Veronica ist wütend auf Jamey, weil sie das Gefühl hat, Sierra verraten zu haben. Jamey versteht nicht, warum sie wütend ist, weil er glaubt, dass sie die Person war, die er bei ihrem Date geküsst hat. Sierra sieht den Kuss und glaubt, dass Veronica ihn absichtlich geküsst hat. Als Rache beschließt sie, die Tatsache aufzudecken, dass Veronica von ihrem Ex-Freund über SMS abserviert wurde. Während des Footballspiels erzählt Veronica wütend Jamey die Wahrheit, und als eine panische Sierra versucht sich zu verteidigen und zu erklären, erkennt er ihre Stimme. Jamey ist schockiert von den Ereignissen und will, dass sich Sierra und Veronica von ihm fernhalten. Auch Dan ist von seiner besten Freundin enttäuscht und sagt, dass er sie nicht wieder erkennt.
Sierra schreibt ein Lied namens Sunflower und sendet es als Entschuldigung an Veronica. Veronica schickt das Lied an Jamey und erzählt ihm, was für ein großartiges Mädchen Sierra wirklich ist. Er vergibt Sierra, küsst sie und lädt sie zum Homecoming-Ball ein. Auf dem Ball versöhnt sich Sierra mit Veronica und Dan.
Der Film wurde erstmals im September 2016 als moderne Nacherzählung der Cyrano-de-Bergerac-Geschichte angekündigt, die von Ian Samuels nach einem Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer inszeniert werden soll.[1] Die männliche Hauptrolle wurde mit Ben Hardy besetzt.[1] Zur selben Zeit wurde bekannt, dass Molly Smith und Thad Luckinbills Produktionsstudio Black Label Media den Film produzieren werden, wobei Beer ausführende Produzentin wird.[1]
Die titelgebende Hauptrolle wurde Anfang Januar 2017 mit der aus Stranger Things bekannten Shannon Purser besetzt.[2] Weitere zentralen Rollen gingen an RJ Cyler, Kristine Frøseth, Will Peltz, Lea Thompson, Alan Ruck und Chrissy Metz. Am 1. Februar 2018 wurde bekannt, dass Noah Centineo die männliche Hauptrolle übernehmen wird, und somit Hardy, der das Projekt verließ, ersetzen wird.[3]
Im Juli 2017 gab Songwriter und Musiker Leland bekannt, dass er mit Bram Inscore Musik den Soundtrack für den Film komponiert. Außerdem enthüllte er, dass auch jeweils einen Song für Troye Sivan und Allie X geschrieben wurden, der in dem Film zu hören sei. Zudem wurde ein Originallied namens Sunflower zusammen mit der Drehbuchautorin Lindsey Beer geschrieben und von Shannon Purser gesungen.
Am 18. Januar 2018 wurde bekannt gegeben, dass Netflix die Rechte an dem Film erworben hat.[4] Die Veröffentlichung fand weltweit am 7. September 2018 statt.
Die deutsche Synchronisation entstand nach einem Dialogbuch von Jan Fabian Krüger unter der Dialogregie von Michael Ernst durch die Synchronfirma RRP Media UG in Berlin[5].
Der Film erhielt überwiegend positive Kritiken. Bei Metacritic erhielt der Film einen Metascore von 60/100 basierend auf 14 Rezensionen,[7] bei Rotten Tomatoes waren 65 Prozent der 23 Rezensionen positiv.[8]
Markus Fiedler von Filmstarts.de urteilt über den Film: „Eine starke Shannon Purser, ein paar düstere Einsprengsel in der Handlung und ein guter Soundtrack geben diesem ansonsten recht süßen Netflix-Bonbon genug Geschmack, um trotz des Mangels an eigenen Ideen Spaß zu machen.“[9]
Helden der Freizent meint, dass der Film auf „emotionaler, moralischer und intellektueller Ebene […] durchaus gelungen“ sei. Außerdem urteilen sie, dass der „gute Cast den Streifen über den Durchschnitt hebe“.[10]
Thomas Pill (* 21. Juni 1980 in Augsburg) ist ein deutscher Filmregisseur und Filmschauspieler aus dem Bereich des Independentfilms.
Mit Anfang 20 sah Genrefan Thomas Pill den Ittenbach-Film „Premutos – Der gefallene Engel“ an, der ihn mit seinen handgemachten Effekten nachhaltig beeindruckt hat. Einige Jahre später durfte Pill dann bei dem Ittenbach-Film und Crowdfunding-Projekt „Legend of Hell“ als Statist mit dabei sein. Später hatte er einen größeren Auftritt in dessen „Savage Love“, bei dem er auch Schauspieler Dustin Semmelrogge kennen lernte. Diesen konnte er von seinem Drehbuch zu „Das kalte Gericht“ überzeugen, einem als Kurzfilm angelegtes Filmprojekt, bei dem Semmelrogge anschließend zusagt. Auch Eva Habermann und Giulia Siegel waren mit von Der Partie. In den Jahren 2011 bis 2015 wurde dieser mit einer Spiegelreflex-Kamera klein gehaltene Film gedreht, ständig um Szenen erweitert und umgeschrieben. Ittenbach übernahm sogar eine freundschaftliche Gastrolle als Kneipenwirt. Der Vertrieb von Pills Debüt erfolgte im Jahr 2016 über SchröderMedia, allerdings in einer in Deutschland zensierten Fassung. Dazwischen inszenierte Pill den Kurzfilm „Eifersucht“ mit Eva Habermann, Dave Kaufmann und Raphael Stark, der später auf einigen Festivals lief.
Im Jahr 2013 belegte Pill einen Kurs für „Filmemachen und Regie“ an der Münchener Film Akademie und einen Schauspielworkshop an der ISSA in München. 2015 gründete er seine Filmproduktion „Wizzard Movie Entertainment“. Im Jahr 2016 drehte er zusammen mit Michael Effenberger den vorfinanzierten „Alice – The Darkest Hour.“ Für Alice konnte er mit Claude Oliver Rudolf, Sven Martinek, Anouscka Renzi, Eva Mähl und Helmut Krauss wieder renommierte Schauspieler verpflichten. Mit geringen Mitteln und kleinem Budget versucht Pill seine Projekte voran zu treiben und umzusetzen. 2018 drehte Thomas Pill den Spielfilm "Stories of the dead" wieder mit Eva Habermann und Giulia Siegel sowie Ralf Richter, Florian Simbeck und Alfonso Losa. Ein langwieriges Projekt ist das 2014 angefangene und in der Szene umstrittene Filmprojekt „Grimms Kinder“, Alternativtitel "Boten des Todes", ein Episoden-Horrorfilm, der 2020 weiter produziert werden soll.
Pill lebt und arbeitet in Augsburg. Er ist Vater eines Kindes, dessen Taufpate sein Freund Regisseur Michael Effenberger (La Isla) ist.

Gerda verlässt Honka, als sie nach den zahlreichen Erniedrigungen eines Tages im Goldenen Handschuh von Gisela, einer Majorin der Heilsarmee, mitgenommen wird, die ihr ein besseres Leben in Aussicht stellt. Wütend nimmt er die älteren Anna und Inge mit zu sich nach Hause. Während Honka Inge gewaltsam zum Sex zwingen will, flüchtet diese. Er tötet daraufhin die noch in seiner Wohnung verbliebene Anna.
Als Honka von einem Auto angefahren wird, plant er einen Neuanfang ohne Alkohol. Er wird Nachtwächter in einem Bürokomplex und lernt die jüngere Putzfrau Helga Denningsen und deren Mann Erich kennen. Durch Helga, in die er sich verliebt, fängt Honka wieder mit dem Trinken an. Ein Vergewaltigungsversuch scheitert an ihrem Widerstand. Eines von Honkas letzten Opfern wird eine frühere Zwangsprostituierte und KZ-Insassin. Er misshandelt sie, als er keine Erektion bekommt. Daraufhin rächt sie sich an ihm, indem sie ihm Senf auf seinen Penis streicht, während er schläft. Als sie versucht, Geld von Honka zu stehlen, würgt er sie bewusstlos und erschlägt sie mit mehreren Schnapsflaschen. Der Versuch, der attraktiven Schülerin Petra nachzustellen, schlägt fehl, als ein Brand in seinem Wohnhaus ausbricht. Maden waren zuvor durch die Decke zu den griechischen Nachbarn gedrungen, die daraufhin aus der Wohnung flüchteten und den Herd anließen. Die Feuerwehr findet beim Löschen des Brands Leichenteile und Fritz Honka wird trotz seines Versuches zu fliehen noch vor Ort von der Polizei verhaftet.
Der Film basiert auf dem Roman Der goldene Handschuh von Heinz Strunk. Darin beschreibt er die Taten des Serienmörders Fritz Honka, der seine Opfer im Viertel rund um die Hamburger Reeperbahn und dort unter anderem in der Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ fand.[2] Ende September 2016 wurde Strunk für seinen Roman mit dem Wilhelm-Raabe-Literaturpreis ausgezeichnet.[3] Regie führte Fatih Akin, der auch Strunks Roman für den Film adaptierte.[4] Der Film stellt Akins ersten Ausflug ins Horrorgenre dar. Als Produzentin fungiert Nurhan Şekerci-Porst, mit der gemeinsam Akin bereits Aus dem Nichts realisierte.[5]
Akin sagt, ihm habe an dem Buch gefallen, dass Strunk es geschafft hat, sowohl den Opfern als auch Fritz Honka eine Würde zu geben: „Honka ist für mich nicht ein Serienmörder wie Hannibal Lecter aus Das Schweigen der Lämmer. Der mordet in den USA und ist ohnehin nur eine fiktive Figur. Honka war ein realer Mensch aus meiner Nachbarschaft.“ Er sei eine Angstfigur seiner Kindheit gewesen, und er brauche immer einen persönlichen Zugang zu einem Stoff, so Akin weiter.[6]
Die Kriminalautorin Simone Buchholz meint, Honka habe auf St. Pauli einen ähnlichen Eindruck hinterlassen wie Jack the Ripper in London. Schon als die ersten Gerüchte auftauchten, dass Fatih Akin sich des Stoffs annehmen würde, sei St. Pauli ziemlich aufgeregt gewesen, vor allem weil Akin in Altona aufgewachsen und er damit ein Junge aus der Nachbarschaft ist, erklärt Buchholz.[7]
Die Hauptrolle von Fritz Honka wurde mit dem Schauspieler Jonas Dassler besetzt.[8] Dassler trug während der Dreharbeiten eine Kontaktlinse, die man in London herstellen ließ und anstatt der Iris einen angemalten Glaskörper zeigte, mit dem Honkas starkes Schielen dargestellt werden sollte.[6] Auf diesem Wege wurde eine Figur in der Tradition von Victor Hugos Der Glöckner von Notre-Dame erschaffen, so Fatih Akin.[6] Dassler sagt über seine Darstellung von Honka: „Der Leitsatz dabei war für mich, dass da jemand war, der eigentlich nach einer Normalität, nach einer Bürgerlichkeit gesucht hat. Und der Weg dahin ging leider auch über diese Morde. Dass es eine Frustration über sich selbst gab, die dann ausgebrochen ist.“[9] In weiteren Rollen sind Lars Nagel, Uwe Rohde, Dirk Böhling und Philipp Baltus zu sehen sowie Ohnsorg-Legende Herma Koehn, Tristan Göbel (der Hauptdarsteller aus Akins „Tschick“) und Greta Sophie Schmidt.[10]
Am 2. Juli 2018 wurden die Dreharbeiten auf St. Pauli begonnen[4][2], wo Aufnahmen rund um die Kneipe „Zum Goldenen Handschuh“ entstanden[7], die man nur von außen sieht.[11] Die Kneipe wurde zudem im Maßstab 1:1 nachgebaut. Die Filmsets waren in den Hallen des ehemaligen Überseezentrums in Hamburg-Mitte aufgebaut.[6] Auch Honkas Wohnung wurde hier nachgebaut. Für ihre Entwürfe konnten Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz und der Art Director Seth Turner auch auf Polizeifotos sowie Requisiten aus dem Polizeimuseum zurückgreifen, die nach Honkas Verhaftung entstanden waren. Im Abspann sieht man unter anderem Fotos von Tatortskizzen, Bekleidung der Opfer sowie den „Fuchsschwanz“, das mutmaßliche Tatwerkzeug Honkas.[12] Nach jedem von Honka verübten Mord zog Kunz die Wände ein wenig enger.[6] Im August 2018 drehte man unter anderem an der St.Joseph-Kirche.[13] Ursprünglich waren 31 Drehtage angesetzt, die dann auf 33 verlängert wurden.[6] Als Kameramann fungierte Rainer Klausmann.
Der Film wurde von bombero international in Co-Produktion mit Warner Bros. Film Productions Germany und Pathé produziert.[2] Die Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein gewährte eine Förderung von 750.000 Euro[14], die Filmförderungsanstalt fördert die Produktion mit 520.000 Euro[15][16] und die Staatsministerin für Kultur und Medien Monika Grütters mit 300.000 Euro.[17]
Zwei unterschiedlich lange erste Trailer wurden Mitte Januar 2019 vorgestellt.[18][19] Der Film feierte am 9. Februar 2019 im Rahmen der Internationalen Filmfestspiele Berlin seine Premiere, wo er im Hauptwettbewerb gezeigt wurde.[20] Dort wurde der Film auch mit Audiodeskription vorgeführt.[21] Am 21. Februar 2019 kam er in die deutschen Kinos.[22] Im September 2019 soll er beim Fantastic Fest in Austin gezeigt werden.[23]
In Deutschland erhielt der Film von der FSK keine Jugendfreigabe. Gaby Sikorski von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Kino erklärt hierzu, der Film verzichte zwar weitgehend auf Splatter-Effekte oder auf zur Schau gestellte Gewaltszenen, und das meiste passiere außerhalb des direkten Blickfelds der Kamera, doch blutig werde es trotzdem: „Bei der Betrachtung überwiegen allerdings eher Abneigung und Ekel anstelle von Angst.“[24]
Der Goldene Handschuh erhielt im internationalen Kritikenspiegel der britischen Fachzeitschrift Screen International 1,9 von vier möglichen Sternen und belegte damit gemeinsam mit dem skandinavischen Beitrag Pferde stehlen (Ut og stjæle hester) von Hans Petter Moland einen 12. Platz unter allen 16 Berlinale-Wettbewerbsfilmen. Emin Alpers Eine Geschichte von drei Schwestern und Nadav Lapids Synonymes (je 3,0) führten die Rangliste an.[25]
Fabian Wallmeier vom RBB schreibt, in seinem Versuch, sowohl Fritz Honkas Opfern, als auch dem Mörder selbst mindestens ein letztes Stück Würde zu lassen, sei Fatih Akin krachend gescheitert. Wo Heinz Strunk klar und einfühlsam Bericht erstatte, gehe Akin penetrant in die Vollen: „Die Welt, die er auf die Leinwand bringt, ist ein Witz, eine abstruse Groteske, die vor keiner Zurschaustellung zurückscheut.“ Bei Akin werde aus dem erst 22-jährigen Jonas Dassler mit viel Maskenspachtel eine groteske Mischung aus Nosferatu, David Lynchs Der Elefantenmensch und Horst Schlämmer. Wallmeier resümiert, der Film sei meilenweit von der einfühlsam-nüchternen Romanvorlage entfernt, und Akin zeige kein Gespür für Zwischentöne, sondern weide sich an Ekel und Elend.[26]
Frank Junghänel von der Berliner Zeitung erklärt, Akin habe als Form eine Art Theater-Ästhetik gewählt, und Honkas Absteige erscheine wie eine Bühne, auf der sich ein bestialisches Dachkammerspiel ereignet.[27]
Guy Lodge von Variety verweist in seiner Kritik auf die Filmbiografie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile über Ted Bundy, bei dem sich ebenfalls die Frage aufgetan hatte, wo die Grenze zwischen der reinen Darstellung und der Zelebrierung eines Serienmörders liegt. Der Goldene Handschuh sei weder als eine Studie über gewalttoxische Männlichkeit psychologisch aufschlussreich, noch sei der Film als ein Bericht über ein verderbtes Leben besonders informativ. Der Zuschauer müsse sich die ganze Zeit mit der Ungewissheit herumschlagen, welche unglückliche Frau als nächstes zerstückelt wird und dränge einem gleichzeitig eine Empathie mit einem Psychopathen auf, der eine solch komplexe Investition kaum wert zu sein scheint. Positiv merkt Lodge an, man könne das menschliche Fleisch, das auf der Leinwand verrottet, praktisch riechen.[28]
Auch Deborah Young von The Hollywood Reporter bemerkt Rainer Klausmanns grobkörnige Bilder, die abgeranzte Dachwohnung und die Arbeit von Szenenbildner Tamo Kunz, der hier ein so außergewöhnlich detailliertes Filmset schuf, dass man es förmlich riechen kann. Insgesamt bewege sich der Film jedoch unsicher zwischen einem Horrorfilm und deutschem, schwarzen Humor hin und her, was an Rainer Werner Fassbinder erinnere, hätte er nur ein wenig Mitgefühl für die Leidtragenden übrig, so Young.[29]
Brigitte Häring im SRF analysiert: „Eklig ist der Film auch auf einer zweiten Ebene. Er übernimmt Honkas Haltung und ist erschreckend frauenverachtend. Alle Opfer Honkas bleiben namen- und konturlos. Die Frauen sind nur darauf reduziert, versiffte Trinkerinnen, hässliche Prostituierte zu sein. Sie bleiben Klischees.“ Des Weiteren weist sie darauf hin, dass Akin die Figur einer „bildschönen, blutjungen Frau“ als Fantasieobjekt Honkas dazu-erfunden hat, obwohl dieser im Prozeß angab, von älteren Frauen angezogen worden zu sein. Häring sieht dadurch „die echten Opfer noch mehr abgewertet, und zwar (...) durch den Drehbuchautor und Regisseur Fatih Akin.“[30]
Alice Schwarzer problematisiert ebenfalls die Identifikation Akins mit dem Täter: "Als Motiv für die Auswahl seines Stoffes gab Akin in einem Spiegel-Interview an, ihm seien „die Loser näher“. Er meinte damit nicht Ruth Schult. Auch nicht Gertrud Breuer oder Anna Beuschel. Und auch nicht Frieda Roblick, die zwar das KZ überlebt hat, aber nicht Honka. Akin meinte damit den sadistischen Frauenmörder." Und sie regt an: "Wann eigentlich schreibt eine Schriftstellerin ein Buch über diese vier Frauen – oder eine von ihnen? Und wann verfilmt eine Regisseurin ihr Leben?[31]
In Deutschland verzeichnete der Film 230.045 Besucher.[32]

Zum Soundtrack wurden hauptsächlich sentimentale Schlager-Songs aus den Anfängen der Siebziger Jahre verwendet, die in den Kneipen-Szenen von der Jukebox gespielt werden.[35] Diese sind unter anderem:
Für den Abspann wurde der Song „Wir sind jung, wir sind frei“ von Stein Ingebrigtsen verwendet.
Holiday ist ein Lied von Madonna aus dem Jahr 1983, das von Curtis Hudson und Lisa Stevens geschrieben wurde. Es erschien auf Madonnas erstem Album. Stilistisch stellt Holiday eine Mischung aus Dance-Pop, Synthie-Pop und Funk dar. Es ist in D-Dur geschrieben.
1982 begann Madonna ihr erstes Album aufzunehmen. Die ersten zwei Auskopplungen Everybody und Burning Up erlangten nicht den gewünschten Erfolg. Madonnas internationaler Durchbruch erfolgte mit Holiday. Ursprünglich schrieben Hudson und Stevens den Song für Mary Wilson von den Supremes, doch diese lehnte ab, und Madonna nahm ihn an. Zuvor sollte auch das in letzter Minute geschriebene Stück Ain’t No Big Deal auf dem Album sein. Nach der Annahme von Holiday, arbeitete Madonna mit dem Produzenten John „Jellybean“ Benitez an den Aufnahmen des Songs. Sie fügten noch einige Instrumentierungen hinzu. Das Klaviersolo stammt von Fred Zarr. Nach der Veröffentlichung erfuhr der Hit viel positive Kritik. Bei praktisch jedem Konzert spielte Madonna den Hit, auch im Juli 1985 spielte sie den Song beim Live-Aid-Festival. Nach der Wiederveröffentlichung 1985 wurde Holiday insbesondere in Großbritannien und benachbarten Ländern erfolgreich.
Von dem Titel gab es einige Coverversionen.[3] Bekannt wurde insbesondere die gerappte Coverversion Holiday Rap – mit nahezu komplett anderem Text – von MC Miker G & Deejay Sven, die es 1986 auf Platz eins in Deutschland[4] und der Schweiz[5] schaffte. In Österreich schaffte es die Version auf Platz zwei.[6]
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser ist eine US-amerikanische Jugend-Filmkomödie aus dem Jahr 2018 von Regisseur Ian Samuels mit Shannon Purser, Kristine Frøseth, RJ Cyler und Noah Centineo in den Hauptrollen. Das Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer ist eine moderne Nacherzählung der Geschichte von Cyrano de Bergerac.
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser wurde am 7. September 2018 weltweit auf dem Video-on-Demand-Portal Netflix veröffentlicht.
Sierra Burgess ist ein kluges, aber unbeliebtes Mädchen, das gerne an der Stanford University studieren will. Die beliebte, aber hinterhältige Veronica versucht häufig, Sierras Leben runterzumachen und überschüttet sie mit gemeinen Sprüchen und Kommentaren über ihr Aussehen. Als Jamey, ein süßer Footballspieler, Veronica nach ihrer Nummer fragt, gibt sie ihm stattdessen Sierras Nummer. Veronica hat Jamey die falsche Nummer gegeben, weil sie einen Freund hat, Spence, der auf dem College ist.
Diese Lüge führt dazu, dass Jamey Sierra SMS schreibt und glaubt, dass sie Veronica ist. Nachdem Sierra und Jamey eine Weile miteinander SMS geschrieben und miteinander geflirtet haben, beginnt Sierra, Jamey zu mögen. Ihr ist klar, dass er denkt, er schreibt mit jemand Anderem. Sierra erzählt ihrem besten Freund Dan, dass sie einen Typen getroffen hat. Dan warnt sie, weiter Kontakt mit Jamey zu halten, da sie nur unglücklich wird.
Als Sierra erfährt, dass Jamey glaubt, dass er mit Veronica textet, nähert sich Sierra Veronica an. Da Veronica wegen der kürzlichen Trennung von Spence untröstlich ist, bietet Sierra ihr an, Veronica Nachhilfe zu geben, damit sie intelligenter wirkt. Während der Nachhilfe erfährt Sierra mehr über Veronicas frustrierendes Familienleben und beginnt sich mit ihr anzufreunden. Eines Nachts ruft Jamey Sierra über Video an. Veronica erscheint vor dem Bildschirm, während Sierra im Hintergrund das Gespräch führt. Da die Synchronisation der beiden nicht stimmt, beendet Jamey den Anruf. Die beiden lachen zusammen über die Situation und werden zu Freundinnen.
Als Jamey Sierra, die er für Veronica hält, nach einem Date fragt, geht Veronica als Gefallen für Sierra mit ihm. Als er jedoch versucht, Veronica zu küssen, sagt Veronica ihm, er solle seine Augen schließen und Sierra küsst ihn stattdessen, und Jamey glaubt, dass er Veronica geküsst hat.
Vor einem Footballspiel küsst Jamey Veronica. Veronica ist wütend auf Jamey, weil sie das Gefühl hat, Sierra verraten zu haben. Jamey versteht nicht, warum sie wütend ist, weil er glaubt, dass sie die Person war, die er bei ihrem Date geküsst hat. Sierra sieht den Kuss und glaubt, dass Veronica ihn absichtlich geküsst hat. Als Rache beschließt sie, die Tatsache aufzudecken, dass Veronica von ihrem Ex-Freund über SMS abserviert wurde. Während des Footballspiels erzählt Veronica wütend Jamey die Wahrheit, und als eine panische Sierra versucht sich zu verteidigen und zu erklären, erkennt er ihre Stimme. Jamey ist schockiert von den Ereignissen und will, dass sich Sierra und Veronica von ihm fernhalten. Auch Dan ist von seiner besten Freundin enttäuscht und sagt, dass er sie nicht wieder erkennt.
Sierra schreibt ein Lied namens Sunflower und sendet es als Entschuldigung an Veronica. Veronica schickt das Lied an Jamey und erzählt ihm, was für ein großartiges Mädchen Sierra wirklich ist. Er vergibt Sierra, küsst sie und lädt sie zum Homecoming-Ball ein. Auf dem Ball versöhnt sich Sierra mit Veronica und Dan.
Der Film wurde erstmals im September 2016 als moderne Nacherzählung der Cyrano-de-Bergerac-Geschichte angekündigt, die von Ian Samuels nach einem Drehbuch von Lindsey Beer inszeniert werden soll.[1] Die männliche Hauptrolle wurde mit Ben Hardy besetzt.[1] Zur selben Zeit wurde bekannt, dass Molly Smith und Thad Luckinbills Produktionsstudio Black Label Media den Film produzieren werden, wobei Beer ausführende Produzentin wird.[1]
Die titelgebende Hauptrolle wurde Anfang Januar 2017 mit der aus Stranger Things bekannten Shannon Purser besetzt.[2] Weitere zentralen Rollen gingen an RJ Cyler, Kristine Frøseth, Will Peltz, Lea Thompson, Alan Ruck und Chrissy Metz. Am 1. Februar 2018 wurde bekannt, dass Noah Centineo die männliche Hauptrolle übernehmen wird, und somit Hardy, der das Projekt verließ, ersetzen wird.[3]
Im Juli 2017 gab Songwriter und Musiker Leland bekannt, dass er mit Bram Inscore Musik den Soundtrack für den Film komponiert. Außerdem enthüllte er, dass auch jeweils einen Song für Troye Sivan und Allie X geschrieben wurden, der in dem Film zu hören sei. Zudem wurde ein Originallied namens Sunflower zusammen mit der Drehbuchautorin Lindsey Beer geschrieben und von Shannon Purser gesungen.
Am 18. Januar 2018 wurde bekannt gegeben, dass Netflix die Rechte an dem Film erworben hat.[4] Die Veröffentlichung fand weltweit am 7. September 2018 statt.
Die deutsche Synchronisation entstand nach einem Dialogbuch von Jan Fabian Krüger unter der Dialogregie von Michael Ernst durch die Synchronfirma RRP Media UG in Berlin[5].
Der Film erhielt überwiegend positive Kritiken. Bei Metacritic erhielt der Film einen Metascore von 60/100 basierend auf 14 Rezensionen,[7] bei Rotten Tomatoes waren 65 Prozent der 23 Rezensionen positiv.[8]
Markus Fiedler von Filmstarts.de und GTVC urteilt über den Film: „Eine starke Shannon Purser, ein paar düstere Einsprengsel in der Handlung und ein guter Soundtrack geben diesem ansonsten recht süßen Netflix-Bonbon genug Geschmack, um trotz des Mangels an eigenen Ideen Spaß zu machen.“[9]
Helden der Freizent meint, dass der Film auf „emotionaler, moralischer und intellektueller Ebene […] durchaus gelungen“ sei. Außerdem urteilen sie, dass der „gute Cast den Streifen über den Durchschnitt hebe“.[10]

2020.06.09 21:44 ieuaoqa Best Password Practices (Repost due to removal from YSK)

Edit: Original post on YSK is back up. I'll keep this here for posterity.
For some unknown reason as of yet (edit: it was reported for spam and autoremoved), this post was removed from "You Should Know" after some great engagement with the comments. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I graduated from and work in cybersecurity. A good portion of my job is training the employees to the companies we are contracted to. Things like spotting malicious e-mails, social engineering, etc.
One area that everyone seems to think they are great in, but usually aren't, is passwords. One example I do in my training is put up a series of password pairs and ask the audience which password is "stronger" (depending on the clientele, I'll go into what hashing is and do demonstrations of cracking). The results always surprise me.
One of our SOC auditors wasn't even aware that NIST had updated their guidelines a few years ago. I think this speaks to how comfortable we all think we are with passwords, when we really shouldn't be.
Now a days, your password is the key to your life. There are more malicious actors now than ever, using more sophisticated tools than ever. You should know how you can help protect yourself, starting with password hygiene.
Password Patterns (Avoid These):
  • 77% of passwords containing a single digit append it to the end of their password. 10% of the time, an appended digit will be a "1" (includes data where more than one digit was appended). If the password has capitals, 15% of the time it will be a "1" [2]. Adding a 1 to the end of your password has become effectively meaningless for your security.
  • To clarify the above regarding the 10% figure: The data set has passwords with varying number of digits ("pass123", "pass2134325", "pass1", etc.). Of all passwords which have any number digits appended, 10% of those only append a single "1".
  • 35% of passwords requiring a capital letter will capitalize the first letter [2].
  • 89% of 7-character long alpha strings can be targeted by either capitalizing the first character or capitalizing the whole string[2].
  • 61% of passwords are the exact length of the minimum length set in the password policy[3]*.
  • ~10% of users will model their password after their username[3]. ([[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]):Jsmith1)
Things to Keep in Mind When Creating a Password:
  • Length is more important than complexity[1] . This does not mean complexity is not important, just that length is more important. Shoot for length first, then complexity.
  • Avoid common substitutions, as they are baked into password cracking rule-sets. Common substitutions include: a = @, i = !, s = $, etc. Same with adding a 1 to the end of your password and capitalizing the first character. These are common patterns, and are well-known to crackers.
  • Instead of thinking "password" think "passphrase". A single dictionary word is extremely bad. Four to five random dictionary words, perhaps separated by spaces or special characters, is robust. The benefit of a passphrase is that it is easier for you to generate entropy while still remembering your key. Generating entropy through randomized characters is hard, and results in a hard to remember password, meaning you will likely end up with less entropy.
  • Avoid "password walking". This is using a password with adjacent keyboard characters (e.g. "qwerty", "1q2w3e4r", "1qaz2wsx", etc.)
  • Avoid any password present on a password blacklist[4]. Ideally, this should be a baked-in process.
Passwords in General:
  • You should be using a different password for every website. At the very least, your e-mail password should be extremely strong and unique. If someone gets into your e-mail, they can simply reset every other password connected to that e-mail, regardless of how strong they are. Password re-use attacks are common[5]. I cannot overstate the importance of this one tip.
  • SMS-based two-factor authentication (2FA) is better than nothing, but sim-swapping has made it inferior to other forms of 2FA and MFA.
  • I, and my colleagues, and many others strongly recommend a (non-browser-based, audited) password manager. There still seems to be debate about password managers. I will only comment that most security professionals and government agencies encourage the use of them[6, 7, 8, 9, 10]. They are not a panacea. Use them in combination with other positive security habits, like frequent backups and 2FA/MFA.
For developers and/or administrators:
  • Ditch password resets. There is ample evidence now that users change their passwords in predictable patterns (password1 -> password2 -> password3 -> pa$$word1 -> etc.). Additionally, if users know that they will have to change their passwords, they are more likely to create a weaker -- but more memorable -- password. Passwords should only be force-changed at signs of compromise. Overall, effectiveness of password expiration in meeting its intended goal is weak[11].
  • Drop the complexity song and dance. These restrictions will often force users into following one of the above exposed patterns of password creation, and there is little evidence that they increase password robustness (as they are currently implemented).** The "inventor" of password complexity rules has even apologized and admitted there wasn't much empirical data on password security at the time he implemented the rules[12].
  • Allow paste in password fields. This is less of a problem now, but there are still applications and websites which don't allow pasted passwords. Password managers are more ubiquitous each day. Don't discourage it.
  • Check user passwords against an up-to-date blacklist of common/compromised passwords. There are several tools and implementations to accomplish this.
Tools and Resources:
-----------
* Knowing the minimum length required by policy, and knowing that 61% of passwords are that length will significantly increase the speed of password cracking.
** There is ongoing research into the benefits of having multiple rules in a "pool", of which a few are randomly selected to be applied on a user-to-user basis. (e.g. Alice must include a number and be a minimum length of 10 characters. Bob must include a special character and a minimum length of 9 characters).

Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel A wooden trophy with a metal oval on top standing in front of a podium, which has a plexiglass trophy on top The permanent trophy of the Campbell Memorial Award and one of the personalized trophies given in 2009 Awarded for The best science fiction novel published in English in the previous calendar year Presented by Center for the Study of Science Fiction First awarded 1973 Most recent winner Sam J. Miller (Blackfish City) Website sfcenter.ku.edu/campbell.htm The John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Science Fiction Novel, or Campbell Memorial Award, is an annual award presented by the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas to the author of the best science fiction novel published in English in the preceding calendar year. It is the novel counterpart of the Theodore Sturgeon Award for best short story, awarded by the same organization.[1] The award is named in honor of John W. Campbell (1910–71), whose science fiction writing and role as editor of Analog Science Fiction and Fact made him one of the most influential editors in the early history of science fiction.[2] The award was established in 1973 by writers and critics Harry Harrison and Brian Aldiss "as a way of continuing his efforts to encourage writers to produce their best possible work."[1] Locus magazine has listed it as one of the "major awards" of written science fiction.[3]
The winning novel is selected by a panel of science fiction experts, intended to be "small enough to discuss among its members all of the nominated novels".[1] Among members of the panel have been Gregory Benford, Paul A. Carter, James Gunn, Elizabeth Anne Hull, Christopher McKitterick, Farah Mendlesohn, Pamela Sargent, and Tom Shippey. In 2008 Mendlesohn was replaced with Paul Kincaid, in 2009 Carter left the panel while Paul Di Filippo and Sheila Finch joined, and Lisa Yaszek replaced Di Filippo in 2016. Nominations are submitted by publishers and jurors, and are collated by the panel into a list of finalists to be voted on. The minimum eligible length that a work may be is not formally defined by the center. The winner is selected by May of each year, and is presented at the Campbell Conference awards banquet in June at the University of Kansas in Lawrence as part of the centerpiece of the conference along with the Sturgeon Award. The award has been given at the conference since 1979; prior to then it was awarded at various locations around the world, starting at the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1973.[1] Winners are always invited to attend the ceremony. The Center for the Study of Science Fiction maintains a trophy which records all of the winners on engraved plaques affixed to the sides, and since 2004 winners have received a smaller personalized trophy as well.[4]
During the 47 years the award has been active, 183 authors have had works nominated; 47 of these authors have won. In two years, 1976 and 1994, the panel selected none of the nominees as a winner, while in 1974, 2002, 2009, and 2012 the panel selected two winners rather than one. Frederik Pohl and Joan Slonczewski have each won twice, the only authors to do so, out of four and two nominations, respectively. Kim Stanley Robinson and Paul J. McAuley have won once out of seven nominations, and Jack McDevitt, Ian McDonald, Adam Roberts, and Robert J. Sawyer have won once out of five nominations, while Nancy Kress, Bruce Sterling, and Robert Charles Wilson have won once out of four nominations. Greg Bear has the most nominations without winning at nine, followed by Sheri S. Tepper at six, James K. Morrow at five, and William Gibson, Ken MacLeod, Charles Stross, and Peter Watts at four.
Winners and nominees In the following table, the years correspond to the date of the ceremony, rather than when the novel was first published. Each year links to the corresponding "year in literature". Entries with a blue background and an asterisk (*) next to the writer's name have won the award; those with a white background are the other nominees on the shortlist. Entries with a gray background and a plus sign (+) indicate a year where no novel was selected as the winner.

2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamily Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

2020.05.22 03:23 send_nudes12321 AITA - Hiking with Friends

Backstory, (fake names used)
So tomorrow I'm going hiking with some friends from work the plan is to be there by 0945 and complete it within 3-4hrs(7mile hike(3.5miles there and back)) and be back by roughly 1-2pm to spend the rest of the time with my S.O. on her day off
Here's where I might be the AH, My S.O. doesn't like the people I'm going hiking with, (John, Smith, a girl named Alice and myself) she knows one of the dudes but doesn't really know Alice the thing is Alice is 100 swinging for the same team(married to one) and doesn't have a problem to my knowledge with the other dude but that's beyond me.
I try to maintain 100% communication and not lie with my S.O. but she's comparing it to her seeing her exes or boy friend's I have never told her it's not okay for her to be with friends as long as she just gave me the heads up beforehand and had a plan of getting home if she drank
Prepost notes: we've been dating for a bit over a year she's shy in person but alone she can hold conversations. Also I'll try to answer as best as I can.
Not sure if necessary but she's Hispanic/Latina and I'm white
So reddit AITA?
