Tuesday Links and Other Stuff #33

What I'm watching tonight...
Absolutely nothing. I had rehearsal (where I had to sing and as we all know, I don't sing outside of the shower). Alas, the only thing coming out this week is The Avengers, which I'll be watching with my friends next Tuesday. I can't wait to see evil Tom Hiddleston all over again.

Video of the week...



I'm sorry but font jokes always get me going. The way to my heart is probably via a font joke.

Links...
Andrew's 90s performances tournament is going on...remember LEONARDO DICAPRIO and RALPH FIENNES!!!!!

Sati takes a look at rising star Juno Temple, who I've always had a soft spot for.

Stephanie reviews the brilliant We Need to Talk About Kevin from a parental point of view. I definitely don't think I'll be watching this when I have kids.

Andy has been telling us all about his experiences at the Melbourne International Film Festival (man, I miss Melbourne!!), starting his diary here.

It was Nikhat's birthday too last week - if you haven't already, go wish her a belated happy birthday!

Lesya's Speechless Blogathon went on air last week, and although I unfortunately couldn't take part in it, it was cool to the amount of people that did.

It seems that Mette was one of the few people who really liked Cosmopolis. I'm still holding out a little hope for it.

Diana got to see On the Road a little while back, a film which she was looking forward to very much.

I haven't yet seen Bacholerette (though I desperately want to), but over at The Film Experience, the writer/director Leslye Headland was guest blogging and she did a marvellous post called "Growing Up Cinephile". One day when I'm old enough, I'm going to do this.

And for something random but extremely cool, here is a cool presentation that explains Inception. Even though after 17 watches I have it all pretty well explained, this was awesome to tinker with.

Final word...
Favourite silent film?

  1. Bachelorette is AMAZING! It's like Mean Girls grown up. I've watched it twice already- "We gave up strip clubs for Lent." :')

    Oh and I'm still into Cosmopolis too. Let's see how it fares.

    Thanks for the link :)

  10. I enjoy a lot of Silent Films. Fav. Chaplin film is Modern Times, fav. Keaton film is The General. I also adore Nosferatu, The Man With A Movie Camera and The Passion of Joan of Arc. I'm going to go with Modern Times. Amazing.

    Thanks for the link :-)

  12. Also loved the Growing Up Cinephile post at The Film Experience :). Favorite silent film is a tough one. Pretty close tie between City Lights and The Gold Rush. I think I would give the edge to City Lights, though. The Passion Of Joan Of Arc is also amazing.
