Damn you, wireless internet! This would have been up hours ago, but I couldn’t get a damn signal. Is it worth the wait? That’s not for me to say…
Who likes crime drama?! We like crime drama!
Sometimes it’s the classics that slip through the net the easiest. Here’s another from the Why Haven’t I Seen This? pile.
We’re going political again today. I was watching a few episodes of The West Wing over the weekend and it just got me in the mood for some intelligent drama, and then we I spotted this little number on instant watch well, I was in there like a rat up a drainpipe.
I really enjoyed The Score. Most people generally thought it was a bit crap, but seeing Brando, De Niro and Norton share the screen was a bit of a treat for a geek like me. Plus, I always give heist movies a pass anyway. Will the reunion of Bob and Ed receive as favourable a response?
Flu update: day 3. Still sick, thanks for the outpouring of sympathy. In other news, I watched a film today.
If you’re going to follow my lead and watch today’s film, do it with a group. If you watch it alone, the conversation afterwards might end up a bit stilted. (Or, come back here and share your thoughts with the rest of the class!)
I saw a one-man show here at the Edinburgh Fringe this year where the performer was portraying Stephen Glass confessing his sins to a group therapy session. To say it was an odd hour at the theatre would be putting it mildly. On the plus side though, it reminded me of this flick that I had read some good things about when it was released back in 2003. What more excuse do I need?
Today’s flick has been compared favourably to such masterworks as Pan’s Labyrinth and A Tale of Two Sisters, and while I haven’t seen the former yet (I know! I’ll get to it soon, I swear), I can certainly vouch for the latter.
After Andy’s overwhelming debut a couple of weeks ago, he’s back with another edition. Take it away, young’un.
