Well, I went into Blockbuster with the intent of getting The Debt (one of the only movies that my darling Jessica Chastain has been in which I've not seen, and I really enjoyed the original) and Immortals. Then I saw Puncture and The Whistleblower - two films I wouldn't mind seeing - sitting there. Due to a bit of homework, I just had to go with The Debt and Immortals like planned, but I shall probably check out the other two tomorrow/next week. Ah, at least we're getting a steady flow of movies through!
Video of the week...
Yeah, it is another song from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's soundtrack. It makes me want to cry every time I hear it. I don't care what everyone else says - that ending was perfect. Ugh, I need to see this magic again.
A bit of randomness...
So on Thursday, me and quite a few friends are going to see The Hunger Games. Yes, this is almost as exciting as The Dark Knight Rises. Therefore, on Thursday, there won't be any 'conversations' (sorry). If I get back early enough, I'll be sure to post my review - just because I have a whole one day window on you Americans who haven't had the chance to get to any premieres/previews. This is a rare chance. Mind you, we get The Avengers two weeks before you, so does that mean that NZ is finally moving up in the world?
Andrew waves goodbye to 2011 (something I won't be doing for quite some time) with an epic top 10 list. The top four make me squeal with delight inside.
Sati gets into the St. Patrick's Day spirit with more clovers than I've ever seen and 16 drinking scenes.
Steve @ 1001 Plus does a wonderful review of one of my favourites The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which is one that both of us aren't keen to see again.
Jessica @ The Velvet Cafe's review of The Muppets made me smile just as much as I did throughout that whole movie. I still sing songs from it when I find an appropriate moment.
With my excitement for The Hunger Games building like crazy, Corey Atad has an open letter to everyone that thinks it is just a rehash of Battle Royale. (And he likes War Horse, too.)
Lesya says that it is never too late to talk about The Artist. Hopefully it is not too late when I finally get to see it in like, 500 years.
Tyler looks at some great films under 85 mins. Who doesn't like a short movie?
Who has read The Hunger Games book/s?
