This is kind of a lulled week in July: the mighty month of great releases. I caught 21 Jump Street (so funny) and London Boulevard (I've already forgotten it) last night, along with a rewatch of Batman Begins. Tonight I'll be checking out smaller titles Headhunters and The Decoy Bride (Kelly Macdonald!). School may be back in business, but all I'm worried about at the moment is The Dark Knight Rises. Two more sleeps!!!!!!
Video of the week...
I feel like The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer kinda went unnoticed, especially because I can't remember when it was released. Anyway, I'm excited to see it because of Ezra Miller, who I'm kinda crushing on after We Need to Talk About Kevin even though he scared the crap out of me. I love being a teenager.
Tyler shares his favourite closing shots in films. A list idea I'd like to have a crack at in the future.
Mette writes a perfect post about her confuzzledness over movie-watching and blogging. This is basically the story of my life.
Alex does a wonderful retrospective on Christopher Nolan's films to kick off his week of Nolan. I think he may even love Nolan more than I do (!)
Anyone else a fan of An Education here? Steven has a great review of that wonderful film.
Nikhat updates us on her animation month marathon, with the brilliantly sad Grave of the Fireflies in the mix.
Andy has a review of the ever elusive Margaret, which I want to see based on the interesting comments coming out of it.
Have you been checking out the LAMB's review tourney? I thought I'd be able to pick the writers out from under their pseudonyms, but I'm stumped!
Lesya has two blogathons for us: one focusing on silent films and the other calling for recommendations on New York-centered films. Go join!
Jessica's blog The Velvet Café has just turned one. Go wish her a happy birthday!
What's your favourite experience in cinemas ever?
