Here's the thing...I was actually really excited to watch Rock of Ages tonight. I was just in the mood for a musical. But it didn't show up. And then we made the connection that it actually comes out next week, unlike what our order sheet told us. Which leaves barely anything big that is to be released this week, since I had the unfortunate task of watching That's My Boy last night. So I've decided to watch Passion Play just because, Jeff Who Lives at Home since I missed it on its release, and maybe Rampart since I saw it on a preview disc that was out of sync, so I didn't really give it a fair chance. I could be doing schoolwork or reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but it is Tuesday and it is the holidays, so it wouldn't feel right if I watched less than three movies tonight.
Video of the week...
Anyone seen this? It is pretty old, but I feel like everyone needs a reminder that Christoph Waltz is one of the awesomest people on earth every now and again.
Dan is looking at box office flops, and has started off by looking at this year's John Carter. This film was pretty darn unfortunate in every way, but it was still pretty okay.
Bonjour Tristesse has been at VIFF, and has obviously been very busy there. Check out their quick takes of all the films they've watched here.
Tom has been living it up large at NYFF, and got to catch up with The Paperboy which looks...interesting.
Sati will be celebrating her first birthday over at Cinematic Corner tomorrow (so be prepared with well wishes!), but in the countdown, she has shared her favourite performances and movie tracks.
Taking my newly made award of best review of the year is Ryan's review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Like the book, it is kinda life-defining when you're my age. And yeah, it is still my most anticipated film for like, ever.
It seems that Anna has joined the legions of people who loved The Cabin in the Woods.
Aziza got to see Now is Good, which she wasn't terribly impressed by. I doubt I'll be any different, but I am looking forward to seeing Jeremy Irvine's beautiful face on screen again.
What's a movie that everyone hates, but you love?
