Tuesday Links and Important Announcement

What I'm watching tonight...

Lots of stuff coming out this week, including The Tree of Life, which I'm quite worried about. Still, I have my staff pick warning all set and ready to make sure that there isn't any misunderstanding before rental. Anyone, tonight I'm watching The Change-Up, Cedar Rapids and Super, two of which I'm quite excited to see. The other one...well, I do enjoy the odd R-rated comedy. Hopefully this movie night is better than last night's, though I'm sure anything could be better than watching The Smurfs and Bunraku back-to-back.

Video of the week...

I saw this last week on The Jonathan Ross Show, and was in hysterics whilst watching it. I don't even watch Downton Abbey - which is something that will be rectified by the end of the holidays. It is time for me to get posh and British.

And for the announcement...

Sorry guys, Cinematic Paradox is taking a break. I'm leaving New Zealand for the first time to go to Melbourne in Australia. I'll be gone for at least a week, which means I'm missing out on the Golden Globes (I will probably give my analysis of the show when I get back) and the all important opening day of War Horse and Hugo which I've been waiting for for like, ever. However, I shall return, but don't forget about me. Please. (also, sorry for not commenting around a lot...life has been busy)

Links...(for you to read while I'm away)
Tyler @ Southern Vision finally saw Lars von Trier's wonderful Melancholia, which is set to become a lot more relevant with the impending apocalypse and all (haha).

Andy @ Andy Buckle's Film Emporium finally got around to seeing Certified Copy, one of my favourites of last year.

Mette @ Lime Reviews looks back at 2011 in a different way. And I'm not the only 16 year old in the world who loved The Tree of Life!

Ruth @ "...let's be splendid about this..." writes a pretty good argument of why Alan Rickman deserves an Oscar nomination for HP7PT2. He really does.

Diana @ Aziza's Picks started off her year with Animal Kingdom, the amazing Australian film I loved to pieces.

Sati @ Cinematic Corner looks at a great scene from Pulp Fiction (but aren't they all?).

Nikhat @ Being Norma Jeane has been writing her review of Hugo since last year, and I'm glad that she finished it. I can't wait to see it!

Candice @ Reel Talk seemed to love Beginners. Christopher Plummer will get the Oscar, hey?

Alex @ And So it Begins... tells us all why we shouldn't watch The Devil Inside (how did this movie win the weekend box office?!) and watch The Last Exorcism instead. That was quite a good movie.

Scott @ Front Room Cinema unleashes his inner film geek. And advertises that film journal quite well. I'm so getting one.

Ryan @ The Matinee writes a great editorial about how hard he has been working for the past few years on his blog. I'm so jealous of his work ethic!

Final word...
Since I'm in the holiday mood, where's your favourite destination that you've ever been to?

See you in a week or so!
