It can’t rain all the time–
It’s funny that when a film comes round that really disappoints me, or just is completely awful, you can’t get me away from the keyboard. I will pour it all out. However, right now, I’m finding it pretty hard how to put into words how amazing Scott Pilgrim was. But that might be because, I haven’t seen a film so near perfection for a long time it’s hard to know where...
The Last Exorcism
Just a quick post tonight, I’m watching something very smart, intellectual, stimulating on TV…definitley NOT Big Brother….certainly not… Anyway, I’m oober excited about the release of The Last Exorcism which is hitting the UK cinema screens on September 3rd. First off check out the frigging amazing poster: That is creepy as hell, and then there’s the trailer: ...
Girl With The Dragon Tattoo- Casting Update
I previously wrote about my worries about the casting of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s adaptation of Stiegg Larsson’s novel. Well tonight it was announced that Rooney Mara will be taking on the role. I pretty much instantly had to IMDB the name because it did not ring any bells. Which is a good thing really, I certainly did not want to see Knightly or Watson up for the role, so...
DVD rental suggestion for the week
Just watched Micmacs last night, another film that passed me by at the cinema due to living in the middle of nowhere. Anyway I loved it and think this should be your rental choice of the week. Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s latest film is an imaginative story of revenge. It’s recognisable as a Jeunet film from the start, incredibly quirky and stunning to look at. What I loved about this film...
Starring in three* major films at the cinema this year, I thought I’d reflect on my favourite Jay Baruchel roles. He’s so the next big thing (it’s been a long time coming). I believe he to be “da bomb”. 1. Steven Karp- Undeclared One of Judd Apatow’s amazing but short lived TV shows. It follows freshman Steven Karp embark on his first year of college, away...
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The other week I watched the film Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I’d missed it’s rounds at the cinema so it was pretty overdue really. I absolutely loved the film, it was pretty much a perfect adaptation of the Stieg Larsson book which my friend MADE me read. I was honestly not bothered about reading the series, when books (especially books, not so much music and film) get hyped up it...
I’ll take Punctuality–
My 10 favourite High schoolers
1. Max Fischer- Rushmore (Jason Schwartzman) “I saved Latin. What did you ever do?” The ultimate overachiever. 2. Enid Coleslaw- Ghost World (Thora Birch) Her lack of enthusiasm and total revulsion toward the rest of her peers pretty much mirrors that of my own high school experience. Favourite Quote: “Melorra: Oh my god, you guys. We actually made it! ...
