Featured (Anti-)Heroine: Tanya Serebryakova

This time, the character I have chosen cannot really be described as a heroine. Rather, she is more of an anti-heroine. Tanya Serebryakova is the protagonist of a 1988 Soviet film directed by Isaac Fridberg, called Kukolka (translated, amongst other things, as Dolly in English). She is a talented young Russian gymnast, competing at the highest international level, but she suffers a serious back injury at the peak of her career, cruelly cutting it short. With no prospect of bringing further glory to her homeland, she is ignominiously shunted back to the town which she came from, with the expectation that she will simply return to being a normal high school girl. But years of almost military-like training have made the stubborn Tanya a cold, confrontational individual and this inevitably leads to tragedy. Continue reading

Teaser for “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” Released!

Netflix have just released a teaser trailer for their upcoming The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series, which is a prequel to 1982’s The Dark Crystal, a fantasy film by the renowned puppeteer Jim Henson. The Dark Crystal is probably my favourite fantasy movie, so I’ve been mildly interested in this series ever since I first heard of it. And after watching the teaser trailer… I’m still mildly interested in it.😅

I found this teaser a bit confusing, to be honest. As I said above, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a prequel series, but not only does the trailer feature locales from the original film, it also seems to have flashforwards to it, making it hard to tell what era each bit of footage was depicting. Hopefully the subsequent trailers will make things clearer. But one thing I can say now is that I’m glad that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has a prominent heroine in it, although she cannot hold a candle to Kira, the heroine from the 1982 movie.😋

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is out on August 30. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
