Harry On SNL Was …How Do You Say… Perfection

SNL

We were blessed by the stan gods Saturday night, because Harry Styles himself pulled double duty on SNL. Meaning he not only performed, but he hosted… Meaning we have lots of Harry content.

Harry Styles Twerk GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

We’re gonna give you a full breakdown of the episode. Everything from the hair, the accents, and the shade. *sips tea*

Let’s start with the Monologue

Our first look at our golden boy, and wow he was serving looks. During his monologue for SNL he decided to “play the piano” while drinking a martini at the same time. What a talented king. During this monologue, he teased us with the idea of One Direction being there but quickly shooting it down. Definitly giving us classic Harry “Or is ittttttttt” vibes. During this small One Direction moment, Harry shades a certain ex-member of the band. Saying they’re his brothers “Niall, Liam, Louis... and uh… Ringo

In addition to the 1D teasing, he also took a couple shots at himself and all his “serious relationships” that only last “one incredible night together”. Hey… We’ll take what we can get.

Lunch Run – Sketch

This one was especially special for us Harries because to us, Intern Rob from the UK looks exactly like another spacial person we know…

Yeah… It’s safe to say we all cried a little bit.

In this sketch we have Intern Rob going to get lunch for everyone, and he thinks that going to Popeyes to get 15 chicken sandwiches in a very different part of town is okay… Keenan Thompson, Ego Nwadim, and Chris Redd are heavily advising him against it. But Rob claims he is the intern and it’s what he has to do. Ending it to show “Jordan Peele presents: White Get Out. Starring Harry Styles

Joan Song – Digital Short

This was probably the one thing we didn’t know we needed in our life. In this digital musical number we see Joan singing about how her 12lb Chihuahua is her boyfriend and how she would like to imagine what her dog would say to her. Cue the dog transforming into Harry Styles. Trust us… Watch it. You won’t be disappointed.

Airline Pilots – Sketch

In this sketch we have two horny airline pilots and a broken intercom. A perfect set up for all of the concerned passengers aboard. We don’t know what is funnier… The passengers reaction to the pilots crude-ish comments, their reaction to the pilots talking about how old the plane is… Or maybe just maybe (and it is for us) it’s Harry‘s southern accent.

That’s The Game – Digital Short

Okay, so this one sent all of our Harry Styles AU fanfic dreams into hyperdrive. Here we have Quan (Redd) trying to take over the gang and be the “king” and Dante (Thompson), who is the actual head of the gang, confront him. Quan thinks he has everything under control with his two goons by his side, one of them being our man Harry.

Yes ladies and gents! We got our gang member Harry, complete with face tattoos and long braided pigtails. We’re just gonna look past the 21 Jump Street “My names Jeff” accent he pulls in this one. We also got Harry saying “Bruhhhhh” and yes, we’ve been sending that to everyone we know.

Childbirth Class – Sketch

To say that we were -how you say?- DYING during this sketch is an understatement. A couple from Iceland takes a child birthing class and is experiencing a whole different pregnancy than the other couples. While the other couples are tired, sick, and sore, our boy and his wife are feeling “sexy as hell”. Also did we mention… BLONDE HARRY STYLES!

Sara Lee – Sketch

It’s safe to say that this was easily the best sketch of the night. Dylan (Harry) is in charge of Sara Lee‘s Instagram, and he’s been getting his personal account mixed up with the work account. Dylan has made some very interesting comments and captions that we’re not even going to tell you… You have to watch for yourself. And then we encourage you to go check out the real Sara Lee Instagram page and read the comments…

Baby Faye and Her Newsboys – Sketch

This sketch doubles as a musical number! Who are we to say no to Harry Styles singing!? Here we see a broadway musical that has just been going on for way too long. This musical has had the same cast for almost 40 years, and we see them ache and break.

Funeral DJ’s – Sketch

We just need you to watch this one on your own. It’s too perfect to explain. Just know that we expect this exact thing to happen at our funerals. This EXACT thing… Like Harry Styles need to actually be there.

Jason – Digital Short (Cut for Time)

This is another Harry song or should I say rap we were blessed with. Here we have Jason (Harry) as the popular jock and his big brother as the school nerd, who feels left out. Jason decides to rap to him how much he loves his big brother… And sex.

Lights Up

Harry gave us a stripped down version of “Light’s Up” that some how we cried even more at than the studio version.

Watermelon Sugar

Harry served us a fresh plate of perfection with his debut of “Watermelon Sugar“. And we are not okay. We’re on a (watermelon sugar) high from this performance.

You can watch the full episode of Harry on SNL here.

AHS Season 10: What To Expect

AHS Season 10

AHS Season 10 is now a full go! But is it the end of the series?

The season finale of American Horror Story: 1984 just aired, and we are already getting prepared for the next season.

If you are an avid MDRN MAG fan you might remember our theories and explanationS article that we put out before 1984 even aired. If you didn’t let us do a quick recap!

Before the season even hit televisions, we predicted that this season would have “sex and lust” as a major theme… And we were right. How did we guess this? Well we have the theory that each of the seasons is a different circle of hell in Dante’s Inferno. And Lust was the only circle left. Which fit the bill of the season perfectly.

We also predicted that season 10 would be the last season of American Horror Story. And “take place” some way in hell, Being the last stop in Dante’s Inferno. Recently some information was released about AHS Season 10 that is making that theory also seem to be true.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy spoke to Deadline about the upcoming season and said…

We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back – because it might be our last season. It’s the last season we have contracted. 

Ryan Murphy

He also said another very interesting and very exciting fact about season 10…

The people who helped build this show into what it is, who believed in it from the beginning, have been contacted and are interested. So if you look at the iconography of the first three seasons, you can figure who I’ve gone to and who might be coming back. 

Ryan Murphy

So if we go by that statement we are expecting Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Queen Supreme herself Jessica Lange. And when we say expecting that just means they better be in the last season or we riot.

Now, as for the season “theme” or “title,” it’s still up in the air. Murphy stated before that Episode 8 of 1984 would contain a big hint to the next seasons plot… But that could be anything. Luckily an AHS fan account has broke down all the possibilities. (Be sure to click through the thread to see all of the theories!)

If you ask us, they could really play on the “Urban Legends” mixed with hell theme. If they have urban legends and AHS “legends” it would be a clever way to close out the series. (which we are not ready to say goodbye to.)

Granted FOX has the option of ordering new seasons, but with the Disney merger it’s up in the air. Ryan has previously stated that he feels this is a show that can “continue for several more years. Maybe the show will move to Netflix if a FOX contract isn’t drawn up.

Only time will now tell the fate of AHS Season 10 and it’s future! You can be assured that we will keep you all up to date with all the new details. We promise!

Stan Lee 1 Year Later, We Love Him 3000

Stan Lee

We don’t know about you but we still cannot believe that the great Stan Lee is gone… Let alone has been for a year.

Stan Lee has given us a whole universe that helps us escape hard times. A world full of the most amazing heroes imaginable. But he was the real hero in giving us them.

When he tragically passed, the world was well… Shook. We lost a huge icon that we were in mourning over for months… To be honest we still are in mourning.

Stan Lee

The thought of watching all of the new upcoming Marvel movies without a Stan Lee cameo is physically painful. Sure, there is CGI but it’s honestly not the same.

How can we remember him?

The best way to remember Stan the Man would be, of course, to have a Marvel marathon. Coincidentally Disney+ came out today and it contains many many Marvel titles.

So watch them, feel them, live them, and cry to them. We know we will… Especially Endgame… Because we’re still not over that movie.

So watch the movies, read the comics, and remember the man that gave us this amazing universe. We love Stan 3000.

Jojo Rabbit Will Make You Laugh Until You Cry

Taika Watiti‘s newest film, Jojo Rabbit, is the perfect fantasy, comedy, drama, coming-of-age story, I didn’t know how much I needed.

Photo: Twentieth Century Fox

And listen, I’m not a movie critic. I’m just a person with a website who likes to talk about things that I experience. And, this movie was an experience. The movie’s trailers lead me to believe I was simply headed into a comedic satire about a little boy with an imaginary friend who happens to be Adolf Hitler. It’s a crazy concept, of course. I knew it had to be deeper than that. Oh, and it was.

I had high expectations for the film, simply because it had Taika Watiti‘s name on it. This is the man who is responsible for saving the Thor franchise. And what was once a disaster became one of my favorite films in the Marvel franchise. He is also responsible for the wildly hilarious What We Do in the Shadows.

Taika Watiti has a very unique form of story telling. He has this style that is very human, and it was amazing seeing him go back to his Indie roots for this film. You can tell that he puts his entire heart into his work, and it truly pays off. I was pleasantly surprised by how emotional and thought provoking this story was, all while maintaining a great humor and never going ‘too far’.

At the center of this film we have Roman Griffin Davis in his break out role as Jojo Betzler. This character grew up under Hitler‘s rule, dreaming of one day fighting for his country to make his hero proud. Roman‘s portrayal was amazing, and his comedic timing was perfect. He was even able to hit the emotional beats and sell them so well. The emotional chemistry with his co-star Thomasin McKenzie who played Elsa was also something that just made that film feel that much more real.

I have no doubt this movie will get all the awards it clearly deserves. Since seeing it yesterday, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the messages and themes throughout. Although this movie was based during WWII, this is something that needs to be seen by many. This story of a boy’s misguided fantasy, and faith shows how easy it is for society to be manipulated into hating minorities, religions, and groups of people through propaganda. On the other hand, it also shows that even in a cruel world, compassion, and love are still worth embracing. However, we have to fight and confront the cruelty within ourselves first.
