Tuesday Links and Other Stuff #20

What I'm watching tonight...

I just watched The Son of No-One, which was a fairly pointless movie. Next, I'm moving onto another Katie Holmes flick: Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. I'm only watching it for Guy Pearce, and I will probably end up praying later tonight that someone gives him some good roles. After that, I shall watch Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol. I thought it looked pretty darn cool, so I watched all of the other Mission Impossible's in the last week or so. I didn't particularly enjoy any of them, apart from the third one (which is probably not the right way to go, but so be it). Alas, I need me some Jeremy Renner to tide me over the next week until The Avengers comes out.

Video of the week...

While I was watching Titanic in 3D, I couldn't help feel a little disappointed that the chairs didn't explode when they fell, there was a lack of lens flare and I didn't have ice thrown at me. But I know that James Cameron will release it in super 3D when he 'runs out of money'.

Andrew takes a look at one of my favourite scenes from the brilliant Take Shelter.

Sati offers up a stunningly amazing review of Shame, a movie which I am still desperate to see. Like, I've had at least ten dreams about me watching it.

Tyler was inspired by Ruth and myself to give us a list of 50 cinematically awesome moments.

Mette revamps her top 100 - and man is it awesome. Confessions of a Shopaholic, for the win!

The LAMB's movie of the month this month was the brilliant Inglourious Basterds. Check out everyone's posts about it here.

Reel Talk looks at some kickass female villains in action movies.

And just because I'm kind of in love with Tom Hiddleston at the moment...

Final word...
Favourite big Hollywood franchise?


  1. Favourite big Hollywood franchise? For childhood sentimental reasons, it has always been Back To The Future and the original Star Wars trilogy.

    1. Definitely agreed with you there on those two choices! Along with LOTR of course.

    2. Back to the Future is great! I've yet to see Star Wars though (I know, I know). And as a Kiwi, I feel obliged to say how awesome LOTR is!

  2. Harry Potter.
    No explanation required.

  3. Thanks for the linkage. My favourite big Hollywood franchise is Lethal Weapon easily. Hands down the best action/comedies ever made, all four of 'em.

    1. I need to see those, but I ain't too hot on Mel Gibson.

  4. Thank you for the link and kind words Stevee! I hope you'll like MI4, I thought it was the most consistent and entertaining in the series.
    Favorite franchise? Harry Potter doesn't scream Hollywood to me but if it counts, that would be the one :)

  5. Lord of the Rings probably my favourite. Don't be Afraid of the Dark is totally forgettable. A real waste of Pearce. MI4 is head and shoulders above the rest. Hope you enjoy it! By the way, you were featured on the Total Film newsletter the other day as a 'cool blog to visit'!

  6. Not really a big Franchise person. As you know I haven't done Harry (sounds wrong) I guess Star Wars or Indy Jones will always have a place in my heart... are they franchises?

  7. Franchises? Harry Potter, and I am starting to like some of the new Marvel movies, like Iron Man, Thor...I can't wait for Avengers. Oh, and the new Batman films, with Christian Bale, are pretty amazing, too!
    Tom Hiddleston <3

    1. The Marvel movies are really cool. And Batman is definitely my favourite.

      I love Tom Hiddleston!


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