Tuesday Links and Other Stuff #24

What I'm watching tonight...


Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, finally, and Hugo, again. The Muppets is also out this week, which I watched (and loved) The Muppets again last night with my niece. I'm quite worried about Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy since I hear it is quite dense and I'm really unintelligent, but I hope I like it. I've been waiting for it for too long.

Video of the week...


Gangster Squad trailer. What do we all think? I'm on the fence about it. Such a strange trailer. Still, pretty cast (and by that I only mean Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone).

Links...
Alex reviews Sound of My Voice, a movie which I'm quite excited to see after seeing Another Earth and falling in love with Brit Marling.

After looking at all the failings of cinema going, Scott shares 20 things he loves about going to cinemas. It makes me wish that I could go there more.

The LAMMYs are going full speed ahead, so check out the latest on them!

This week's podcast which accompanied me during class was The Matineecast, where Ryan and Andy (in his podcast debut) chat about The Avengers.

Sati looks at the visual parallels between Black Swan and Shame. I've not seen Shame yet, but this post is bloody amazing.

Nikhat celebrates my idol/second favourite director, Sofia Coppola's birthday with the ultimate list of her work. Fantastic stuff.

It seems Lesya quite liked Dark Shadows, which was literally in the dark shadow of The Avengers this weekend.

Mette looks at the fashion in (500) Days of Summer. Zooey Deschanel always gets to wear the coolest things.

Jessica looks at the sheer ridiculousness of Battle Royale, and how it is a lot funnier than it is scary.

Final word...
Happiest movie you've ever seen?

  2. It's not intelligence you need in TTSS... it's patience to fully appreciate all the attention to detail.
    Thanks for the link :D
    Happiest movie- I don't know. Maybe Amelie, though right now everything is HULK SMASH for me :D

    1. Patience is not one of my strong suits, but I enjoyed it all the same!

      I loved Amelie. Must watch it again before I send it back!

  3. Thanks for the link love! I had a hard time wrapping my head around TTSS. But even if you won't follow, the atmosphere and acting and cinematography is spot on, so I bet you'll like it anyway.

    1. I definitely liked it for all of those things!

  4. Don't worry, you'll like TTSS. You won't love it, but it's pretty great. At least, I reckon anyway. Also, I must see The Muppets.

    I told you on Twitter the happiest movie I've ever seen is Singin' in the Rain, which I desperately hope you've seen. It's also one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, and I'm going to rewatch it this week hopefully.

    1. You must see The Muppets. If you don't like it I'll hunt you down.

      Singin in the Rain is fantastic! One of my favourite movies as a tween. I love musicals!

  5. Thanks for the Link matey!! Very kind of you indeed!

    Unlike Tyler above... I hated TTSS, well I didn't hate it.... but I found it very boring after the big build up!

  6. I think you'll like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy if not for the plot, at least for the actors. (On a similar note, will you write a review on it afterwards?)

    Happiest movie ever seen...I know after I saw It's a Wonderful Life, I had a smile plastered on my face for about half an hour.

    1. I just finished the review :)

      Awww, I love It's a Wonderful Life!

  7. Happiest film...probably Amelie. I liked TTSS but I found both the movie and Oldman's work in it as overrated as underrated Mark Strong's work was - hugely. Thank you for the link!

    1. Amelie is fantastic! And Mark Strong is always underrated :/

  8. Thanks for the link! I really hope you get a chance to catch that flick.

    1. Hopefully I will, some time in the future!

  9. I agree that Gangster Squad's trailer is somewhat weird but I still liked it. I wanted to see this film right away when I heard of it.

    Thank you very much for the link. Haha, I saw that at LAMBscores my rating for Dark Shadows is the highest.

    Happiest movie I've ever seen... probably Enchanted. I don't know, it comes to my mind first. Maybe, it's because Disney is associated with it.

    I do hope you enjoy TTSS!

    1. I wanna see Gangster Squad because of the cast.

      That's a good thing that your LAMBscore is the highest for Dark Shadows. Therefore your post will be first, and you'll get lots of hits!

      Enchanted...I love that movie! Always makes me happy (that's just Amy Adams for ya)

  10. Have yet to catch TTSS but I laughed at your intelligence remark ahah ;) I'm getting Shame and Bridesmaids (rewatch) for my day off on Thursday. Looks like we both have some acclaimed flicks to catch up with :)

    Happiest movie I've seen? Ummm what about BIG!

    1. Hehe, that movie made me feel stoopid! Shame is up for me next month. I still need to catch up on EVERYTHING!

      I've not seen that one, but will try catch up with that one soon.

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