Tuesday Links and Other Stuff #39

What I'm watching tonight...


Yuss...tomorrow is our last day of school before exam leave. I'm kinda scared though, because it is our last year of school that we'll have another year of school waiting for us, if you know what I mean. Oh well, the study leave is welcomed as I plan to ace (some) exams and watch a whole lot of movies. And this will be my last Tuesday Movie Night on a school night until February. I'll be watching Snow White and the Huntsman and Friends with Kids, which will kick off the best month of DVD releases ever apart from July. I would have liked to have caught up with The Cabin in the Woods again, but I don't have the time at the moment. But hey, soon I'll have nothing but time.

Video of the week...



What are we all thinking about the Side Effects trailer? Apparently this is Steven Soderbergh's last film, which is a great shame (even though I've never been the biggest fan of it). I'm just excited to see Rooney Mara, because she's awesome.

Blog of the month...


With a new month comes a bit of a sidebar mix around, and also the blog of the month. This month, the blog that gets to adorn my sidebar is Defiant Success, run by the lovely Anna. There's reviews aplenty here, so if you're looking for something, no doubt Anna has it covered.

Links...
Sharing Vivien Leigh's birthday is the awesome Sam Rockwell, who Sati does an awesome appreciation post for.

SDG shares his list of the best examples of actors directing themselves. Major kudos for Charlie Chaplin's work in City Lights.

Bonjour Tristesse has a review up of Rust & Bone, a film I'm very much looking forward to seeing.

To celebrate her 400th post, Mettel Ray has put together her movie alphabet. It is definitely awesome!

Speaking of celebrations, the LAMB had its 5th birthday last week, with a new design to go with it. Check it out!

Tyler shares the scariest movies he has ever seen. We share the same number one.

Another person celebrating a blog birthday was Mette over at Lime Reviews, who shared her views on the blogging world/world in general. Very inspiring stuff.

Sam was completely blind-sided by The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and sings its praises here. While I wait for the film, I'm going to read the book a few thousand times.

Final word...
What is the scariest movie you've ever seen?

    1. I'm not sure that he'll *actually* retire, as I'm pretty sure he was saying the same thing when Contagion came out. Who knows.

      Thanks!

  10. Thanks for the linkage. You know the scariest movie I've ever seen, and it's still bitterly terrifying to think of.

    Soderbergh is really beginning to grind my gears. It's been a while since I've really liked anything from him.

    1. Yes. Every time it enters my brain I want to cry.

      Didn't you like Contagion? I liked that movie. Mind you, nothing has really topped the greatness of sex, lies and videotape.

  11. Soderbergh's last film? how come? I hope not, I love his films!
    Nice to see Anna's blog highlighted, she is a great blogger!
    I quite liked Friends with kids, I hope you will, too!
