Link Time!


Okay, so usually I replace a word in the title to the movie that I'm watching with 'link', but since Thor can't really be replaced properly, I'm just taking the easy route out. Why am I watching Thor again when it came out three weeks ago? Because Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the only thing out this week (well, there is Barney's Version, but for some stupid reason our shop didn't want to get that, so I'll have to get it off Fatso), and I haven't even seen the first three. Sure, I have plenty of other better movies to watch, but come on...it was the first day back at school, I'm already exhausted, I just wanted something light and easy to watch.

So while I drool over watch a pretty buff Viking going around avenging the land (does he do that?), read these thunderous posts...

While I was trying to have an afternoon nap on Sunday, I decided to watch some trailers to help make me a little sleepier. One of the trailers I watched was for The Skin I Live In, which looked far more bizarre than I expected it to. Lesya at Eternity of Dream gives it a review...a pretty good one too.

One of my favourite films ever, Let the Right One In, gets a review at Surrender to the Void. I feel like revisiting this one sometime soon, it's been too long!

The lovely Mette over at Lime Reviews and Strawberry Confessions just celebrated her first blog birthday (a day after mine!) Go wish her a happy birthday!

Bonjour Tristesse gives Sleeping Beauty a whirl. And by that, I don't mean the Disney classic. I mean the new one starring Emily Browning which really isn't for little kids at all.

Andy Buckle shares his thoughts on the wonderful Peter Jackson film Heavenly Creatures. Truly one of the best New Zealand films ever made.

Over at Anomalous Material, Max and I discuss the 1932 classic Freaks. Just coz it's nearly the end of October and you know what that means...

Tyler at Southern Vision watched Trust, just like I did, and liked it a little more than I did. Check out his review.

Brent gives us some of his most iconic film images over at The Silver Screen. A great list, for sure!

Is there anyone who doesn't like Midnight in Paris? Tom Clift gives it yet another good review...I really hope it gets a Best Picture nomination!

This week's Tumblr recommendation is one I recommend that all of you film lovers follow...especially if you read my post about the movie posters. These movie posters are way better than the ones that we usually see.

Have a great week, my friends!

  1. Thanks for the link!

    Yeah, there's nothing good out right now. Though I'll certainly be checking out BARNEY'S VERSION.

  2. Oooo a link! A hard post as I said!! Now that I've finished it I'm wondering if I should have put this image in over that one! There is a very famous picture of Marlon Brando from The Wild One that I considered but I'm not sure if it is from the film or a publicity sho. So I left it out. It is as iconic as the one of Marilyn Monroe whether from the film itself or not.

  3. Okay, what's Fatso (even though I could probably just google it)?

  4. Thanks for the link!

    I read your conversation about Freaks. The other day I also saw this movie on the list of Cherokee and I remember recently I read some parts of a book about films that suffered from severe censorship and this movie was among them. I must say what I read about it in that book genuinely scared me. However, now as I see that people actually watch it and speak highly of it, I could give it a try. Someday.

  5. Tyler - I'll be checking out Barney's Version as soon as it becomes available!

    Brent - I know the one you mean! That is a pretty iconic shot, but the list is very good anyway.

    Robert - Fatso is like Netflix (I guess)...basically a DVD rental system where you order on the internet and they get sent to you in the mail and then you send them back.

    Lesya - You should give Freaks a go. It isn't really 'scary' as such...but the finale is quite freaky. However, it serves as a nice slice-of-life story about the 'freaks'.

    Bonjour Tristesse - You're welcome!

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
