Do you think your Blanchett Bonér might be erupting with some bias, or is it really that good?

Watched Pitch Perfect with the kids. Solid and enjoyable movie. And then we watched Breakfast Club. Still awesome. The kids had a lot of questions. Good questions.

I was watching Rosemary's Baby this morning. Did not realize it was a Polanski film until I scrolled across it on Netflix the other day. Mia Farrow's voice and acting and face are annoying, but otherwise pretty decent.

My favourite mobster movie is probably Miller's Crossing, but I haven't seen that many, and that's just because I like to suck Coen dick.

Also, watched The Princess Bride last night. It was on one of those outdoor blow-up screens. The resolution was beyond terrible - not a way I'd recommend to watch anything. Still enjoyed myself. I always forget just how funny and well-plotted TPB is, especially for what it's aiming at. Very few movies as fun to watch.

As a sidenote, there was a dude in his late-thirties/early-forties beside us who was way too into the movie, i.e. quoting lines before they happened, swinging around an imaginary sword during the sword fights, cheering with arms raised in victory when the six-fingered man dies.

My womanlady (a man in his fifties, really) wasn't. She wants no part of any of the four films (I don't begrudge her aversion for Resurrection, but the other three I can't forgive).

Saw Carnage the other night. It was a bit long (blame the sourced play), but otherwise quite enjoyable. This is my kind of movie: no costume changes, one room, talking heads....filmed theatre.

The acting was tremendous. Kate Winslet is my hero. Her vomit scene was top notch.

Even then, the "commercial Leo" isn't even something the films sets out to illustrate either. It's an analytical by-product of watching the film.

So it's really only "youthful romance on a doomed cruise" which to me sound worse than "a film about the mob" (insofar as such a thing exists, which I don't it does, unless we're talking documentaries and reportages, which are another beast altogether, but that's something that RTWPOKEE knows, and I don't know how to punctuate phrases).

I'm watching movies on tv in Stockholm (settled on the classic Bourne Ultimatum) and I think the frame rate is upped from the standard film 24 fps to whatever one is used for soap operas. I never noticed that in Canada. What gives.

To answer you properly :

PAL is 625 lines, 25 frames per second. NTSC is 525 lines, 30 frames per second. When PAL video is broadcast over an NTSC channel, both the image and the timing have to be adjusted using a frame buffer. That causes a perceptible change in the video.

The vast majority of PAL-originated material broadcast in the US comes from the UK or Australia (NFTE : Europe in general), so you've come to associate that particular change with British material and Australian material.

Yep, Prometheus's characters and Damon Lindelof's script are still as dumb as a sack of rocks.

Enjoyed the visuals way, way more this time around; Ridley's direction too. I might have been too harsh on him if I said anything at all; if not, no problem, carry on, mate. Keep going but fucking pick better screenwriters.

It's unfortunate, too, that there's only anything interesting (or "worthwhile") happening a solid sixty-five minutes in.

And, to conclude this way-too-late verbal shit, that medical pod is still as dumb as fucking shit : a goddmaned gender-specific operating table ? Gah...

And of course ... this spellbinding bit of acting in a predecessor to Sorkin's walk and talk, or rather circle around drunkenly with fuck me eyes:

Well, that's damning praise right there.

I was expecting coherent characters, I was served with dumbass "scientists" and pig-headed "believers". Meh. Most of it was cogent enough that I did not feel the urge to shut it off after Charlie began brooding (for God knows what reason), you know ?

I still preferred Inception. Even Oblivion had some interesting moments.

Prometheus was on par with Elysium. Behind the effects and the epic soundtrack, there are a lot of stupid characters making stupid decisions. Fassbender was a delight though, I'll give him that.

I'm wondering if Interstellar is going to be any good.
