First of all, I come with an apology: I haven't been around an awful lot lately. I managed to get a freaking virus on Sunday night, of all nights, and I couldn't make it to the computer yesterday. The other two days I had off last week were just me being lazy. Seriously, it isn't good. Anyway, because of that virus, I'm taking it easy on the movies tonight, with only The Amazing Spider-Man to keep me company for the night. I do hope to be watching Attack the Block (finally it's coming out in NZ, after 50 billion years) tomorrow night. And then we're heading into November, which means The Dark Knight Rises trailer will be at work making everything better in my life!!!!!
Video of the week...
I haven't done one of these links posts in ages so I haven't had a chance to just highlight how awesome the Zero Dark Thirty official trailer is. It has so much Jessica Chastain (but not so much of her speaking). New most anticipated film for 2013 (since it is only getting a small release in 2012 to be eligible for Oscar stuffs)? I think so.
Everyone has to stop what they're doing, because Tyler is back blogging at Southern Vision. Plus, his return to blogging is centred on the "Directorial Perfection" of Hunger.
Alex takes a look at the career of writer/director/actor Edward Burns, who I've always wanted to see more of. Such a great guide on the guy!
Ryan ponders over the power of star ratings. It is a well-worn debate, but he definitely brings some ideas to the table.
Andy got to interview Paul Thomas Anderson (needless to say, I'm VERY jealous), and here is the outcome. PTA sounds like a very interesting guy.
Earlier this year I went and saw a one-man play called Private Peaceful, which was a fantastic experience. Now there's a movie out based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo (with more than one person acting it out), and Diana got to see it.
Anna has a review of the very scary Freaks. Seriously, I don't think I could ever stomach that film again.
Nikhat got to check out Skyfall before most of us, and she loved it. I can feel the Daniel Craig crush coming back...
Love a bit of Hollywood Memorabilia? I know I do. Here's a comprehensive site filled with all sorts.
Who is one director you'd really like to interview?
