Tuesday Links and Other Stuff #43

What I'm watching tonight...


This is a pretty weak week but I've still found three movies to watch. Take This Waltz is the one I'm most excited for, The Campaign is pretty much a time-filler and I want to see just how bad Iron Sky is. Unless it is really good. But I doubt it is when it has a premise like that.

Video of the week...



Oh hey there Anne Hathaway, didn't see you behind all of those awards!

A bit of randomness...


A couple of pics from the ball last week. It was a lot of fun. I liked dressing up and stuff. And I really liked my dress. I must find other excuses to wear it again some time. Like when I need to mow the lawn.

Blogathon!


Remember that my blogathon happens in a couple of days. I've had a few entries already, you guys are awesome! Just in case you've forgotten the details, be sure to go here.

Links...
Leith has been working extra hard over at Ramble Film with a slew of great content, but I do love that he loved Killer Joe. Any person who loves that film is awesome.

The latest problem going around the film-loving folk at the moment is actually questioning how much film-lovers love films nowadays. Ryan and Jessica weigh in and both provide some of the most interesting reading in some time.

Anna saw and quite liked Silver Linings Playbook - I know I'll probably be the same.

Anyone got their Christmas spirit all sorted? I know I don't. Reel Insight does, however, with Jess and Rachel doing 25 days of Christmas with their naughty and nice Christmas movies.

Brittani quite liked Anna Karenina, a movie which pretty much flew under the radar after such a big build up.

Mettel saw Lola Versus, and had pretty much the same opinion as me on how disappointing it was.

And because no-one can get enough Jessica Chastain in their life, here is what is now my favourite photoshoot of hers (and I have a few), done for V Magazine.

Final word...
What movie gets you into the Christmas spirit?

  3. Thanks for the linkage, Stevee. I've had a lot of time to blog now that I've finished uni for the year. It's been great. I'm hoping to keep up the regular posting.

  4. I wonder if you will like The Campaign - I still didn't see this one and I'm not sure if I will like it, on the other hand it's usually how it is with comedies nowadays - you have to take a risk and watch them and maybe there will be one funny movie among them. The genre is in such a decline nowadays, just as horrors.

    1. The Campaign was alright - I'm not a huge fan of Will Ferrell so I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Comedies are in a bit of decline nowadays. I think the only 2012 comedy I've found remotely funny is 21 Jump Street.

  5. I think It's A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, and Home Alone would be the movies that get me into the Christmas spirit. I try to watch them every year :)

  6. Can't wait to take part in your blogathon, what a great idea there.

    1. I'm excited to see what you've come up with!

      Ah, I still must see Bad Santa! Hopefully it is on TV some time soon.

    2. Noooo do not, under any circumstance, watch Bad Santa on TV. That is, if the channel edits language, sex and all the other stuff the movie exploits so comically. Trust me!

  7. Every Xmas, I like to see some YouTube clips that often make me laugh. One of my favorites is an old Mad TV sketch re-imagined Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer directed by Martin Scorsese called Raging Rudolph. It is hilarious. If you have never seen it.

    Here's the clip: http://youtu.be/icjh6wGUUfE

  8. Movies that get me in the Christmas spirit: It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, The Shop Around the Corner, Elf, Home Alone... It's hard to pick just one. ;)

  9. That is a great dress, Stevee! You look lovely. I really like the picture of your dog too -- I'm a huge dog person.

    Christmas movies? A Christmas Story and Love Actually.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
