I'm actually not entirely sure. Since tomorrow is a public holiday, all of the DVDs that are still out tomorrow came last Friday. So on Saturday night I hauled The Adventures of Tintin, I Melt with You (good lord, this film is still parading around my brain), Toast and Tower Heist home, and I watched the last of the pile last night. Aside from the fact that I watched Tintin with some friends just before. So it shall be a lucky dip in the pile of movies that haven't come straight from the DVD store tonight and tomorrow, until New Year's Eve and The Iron Lady arrive on Thursday. If I live until then. I'm playing netball for the first time tomorrow in three years. Please wish me luck!
Video of the week...
Cosmopolis looks freaking awesome. Someone please get me a plane ride to Cannes Film Festival, I'll love you forever.
A bit of randomness...
This is what the view looks like from my window. LOL JK, I had to walk right down the end of my Dad's property to get this awesome (if I do say so myself) shot of the sun going down. There is plenty more where that came from, too. I love taking photography at school so I can have a flash camera.
Some navigation instructions...
In case you haven't noticed, I've been a busy wee bee figuring how to code those highlighted buttons under 'April DVD releases in NZ' on the sidebar - something I'll be doing with all of the buttons (one day). If you click 'more', you'll find a whole page dedicated to everything that I've seen DVD release wise in the past couple of months. I know it won't be of interest to most of you since you don't live in NZ (I made it for the people of Dannevirke, but they won't use it). If you do, however, want to keep track of what I think of recent-ish films, then go there, it is quite comprehensive!
And a change in schedule...
The conversation post for this week will be postponed until Friday, since I'll be watching New Year's Eve on Thursday, which I really wanna have a conversation with. Underrated Showcase Sunday will be postponed, too, since I'll have a review of The Avengers up for you then. Lame Trailer Clichés will be back soon, though - I just wanted to get I Melt with You the fuck out of my system.
Sati and Tyler share their 50 cinematic wishes - a list which I'm thinking I might do tomorrow night.
Speaking of The Avengers, Andy was very lucky to catch an early screening. He calls it the "finest superhero film I have seen to date". We'll see how this holds up.
The Kid in the Front Row visited Ryan of The Matinee and asked him some questions. I do love posts like these.
My video review was more successful than I thought it would be, but it is nowhere near as good as Scott's one of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (which me and my friends are going to see when it is re-released in 3D, because we're cool). He cracks fishing jokes.
Diana checks out Fish Tank, a film which I really liked - and good old Fassy was pretty darn sexy (and evil) in it.
Ruth checks out new Australian film Wish You Were Here, starring Joel Edgerton, that I quite want to see.
Cherokee has a new feature called 'Alternate Endings', and her first victim is the horrible The Last Song! I think her version was better than the actual shitpie.
And finally, Bonjour Tristesse sums up Cannes in a way that really makes me wish that someone would get me that plane ticket!
Film from the Cannes line-up you most want to see?
