Finally, after what seems like forever, Young Adult is out on DVD. Being a HUGE Jason Reitman fan, I'm hoping for some big things. Also, I'm checking out The Descendants again. Just so I can check that my Melbourne judgement was right. I wasn't originally going to watch it again since The Darkest Hour was supposed to come out, but that got delayed. So The Descendants it is.
What's been happening on the site in the past week...
Sorry for taking lots of breaks. Let's just say, school sucks. So does writer's block. In order to not chicken out on a post, I shared some of my photos with you. Then I had a conversation with the awful Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Thanks to Cillian Murphy having a birthday on the perfect day, I wrote about my favourite performances by him. As part of the LAMB's Acting School 101, I did a really random post on Cate Blanchett's work in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This week's underrated showcase was all about the terrific Hard Candy. And finally, this week's Lame Trailer Cliché was the textbook sports movie trailer. I don't mean to be OCD but, no comments? Sadface. I did four hours of non-stop homework so I could post that post. Anyway, it has been an interesting week on the blog...
Video of the week...
I can't stop watching The Great Gatsby's trailer. Oh, I love Baz Luhrmann. I love that book. I love Leonardo DiCaprio. I love Jay Gatsby. I'm part of the 0.02% of film bloggers who thinks this will be awesome.
A little note...
I'll be absent from the blogging world this weekend. Since it is Queen's Birthday, me and seven of my friends are going to the beach. Then it'll be study leave for a week, so I'll have more time to blog! (but probably not any more inspiration).
Diana reviews the fantastic yet extremely painful to watch The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
Tyler looks at the brilliant score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Since seeing the movie again, it's been interesting to put the songs to the scenes and getting a totally different meaning to them...if that makes sense.
Rodney looks at film piracy in his midweek mumble over at Front Room Cinema.
One movie that I've always wanted to see is the star-studded 1933 classic Dinner at Eight. Anna gives it a favourable review.
Sati takes a look at rising star Rooney Mara - a.k.a one of the most beautiful women ever, in my opinion.
Anomalous Material has awesome new images from Django Unchained. Come on, Christmas!
The Void has ended his Cannes Marathon, and has summed everything up nicely here.
Andy looks at him favourite fleeting moments from David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This movie was so awesome.
Ruth has taken part in a blogathon all about horses in film. Because horses are awesome.
The LAMMY nominations have closed and we'll see who's lucky enough to be in the running this year in a couple of days. Meanwhile, here's a tournament for the best FYC posters!
Favourite film score/soundtrack of all time?
