Television + Film
January 14, 2013 at 7:23 pm #222
Just to thank the TV gurus for bringing Justified and Californication back to air within 5 days of each other.
Also as that funny chap who used to recommend about 3 movies every other day (was it DeltaSigmaSomething ?) has not yet shown his face around these parts, Seven Psychopaths is a film to see for all those who liked In Bruges.
Looper, despite obvious plot flaws, is good and entertaining and I also recently caught and enjoyed Limitless – I know it was released in 2011 but sometimes things slip through the net.January 15, 2013 at 11:51 am #248
same director, same amazing band.
clap ya hands for the walkmen, ladies and gentlemen.January 16, 2013 at 2:38 pm #404
the last film – “360”. Naive and kind.
Waiting for new series of Walking Dead…)January 16, 2013 at 6:52 pm #440
I hope all of you have nothing better to do today than read the MOST AMAZING BLOG YOU’VE EVER SEEN. Only about 18 more movies to go!January 17, 2013 at 5:59 am #491
The last movie I watched was Synecdoche, NY — and if it’s not the best one I’ve seen, it’s a contender.
I want Breaking Bad back.January 17, 2013 at 9:11 am #495
We all want Breaking Bad back but I fear that things ain’t going to work out well for Walt come the final episode. I just hope that somewhere along the line Skylar gets told what a whining, moaning, greedy bitch she is.January 17, 2013 at 9:48 am #500
yesterday watched new episode of adventure time, ok 😀January 18, 2013 at 1:59 am #546

…and?? You left out the most important part of the post. Your thoughts!
I saw Silver Linings Playbook and liked it quite a bit more than I was expecting. A somewhat refreshing twist on what is usually a pretty stale genre.January 18, 2013 at 5:33 am #553
Sorry about that.
Argo – enjoyed this quite a bit, only had really minor complaints about it which I won’t go into.
Django Unchained – loved this a lot. Not my favorite Tarantino movie, but it’s up there.
Silver Linings Playbook – went into this with pretty much no expectations and came out really enjoying it. Like a lot. I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this.
Zero Dark Thirty – I was not a fan of Hurt Locker, but decided to see this one anyway. For the most part, it’s pretty great. Do I think it’s worthy of winning Best Picture? No.January 18, 2013 at 9:58 am #556
i saw life of pi yesterday. it was boring and had too much god bullshit.January 18, 2013 at 6:14 pm #565
I’m hearing the same thing about Silver Linings Playbook from a lot of very diverse people, so I might have to try to see that. I rarely see films.January 19, 2013 at 9:41 am #593
watched silver linings playbook last night and was blown away……..best “mental health” movie since one flew over?January 19, 2013 at 10:03 am #594

Scary Aunty’s Pi review is brilliant, I hope you walked out of the cinema muttering that!
I got a blu ray player recently so only watch shiny films. Although in a brief moment of indie credibility I squeezed Tyrannosaur in and it SLAYED me. Quite fancy Silver Linings…because I love films about mental health (couch trip etc yeah) and also fancy that Hunger Games chick. I presume there is a good indie soundtrack too so basically the film was focus grouped for me.January 20, 2013 at 4:35 pm #629
I think Life of Pi is visually really beautiful, but that’s about it. It was quite a boring movie.
I love Argo and Django Unchained. Ben Affleck should quit acting and dedicate himself to directing. As for Django Unchained, I think Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Fox are brilliant in it. Also really good job, Mr. Tarantino!
The Silver Lining Playbook was quite a surprise. I liked it.
I have also seen Amour. For me, this is the kind of movie you are only going to watch once. It’s quite heavy at the end.
I remember this board having a few Wes Anderson fans. In case you if haven’t seen this yet and you have enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom, you are going to like this: http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2013/01/complete-illustrated-moonrise-kingdom-script-relea.html.
