  1. Sicario 2: Soldado

    The director's last film was Suburra, which is available on Netflix, worth a watch.
  2. Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood predators

    John Lasseter has effectively resigned from Disney https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/john-lasseters-pattern-alleged-misconduct-detailed-by-disney-pixar-insiders-1059594 EDIT: re-reading the articles it may genuinely be a temporary leave of absence
  3. Very interesting thread, it's difficult to get an in depth look at film and tv behind the scenes. I'd recommend the book Film Art by Bordwell and Thompson to anyone who's interested. Based on what you're saying @kerraig UK is Thelma Schoonmaker as responsible for Scorsese's films as he is himself?
  4. Terminator 2 back in cinemas, in 3D

    Sorry to put a dampener on the hugely positive post above, but it was only on for one day, August 29th (judgement day) in the UK. So the window is closed. Also, in the US it ran for longer and, more bad news, it was a flop compared to other 3D re-releases.
  5. Actors Eating on Film and TV

    This is fairly common in the US. American friends take the piss out of my polite ending of phone conversations.
  6. I love MGMT Oracular Spectacular

    A cut copy single is the free single of the week on itunes at the moment.
  7. I agree too on the script, I can't believe they went through so many and picked this. I think it's a testament to the cast and Spielberg that even a ropey script and George Lucas couldn't ruin the film.
  8. The Dark Knight

    Heres a new link to the bootleg: http://youtube.com/watch?v=qj1ItIcSIHw
  9. Chicken

    Chicken prices are going up, from what I understand, because people weren't buying enough dark meat (white is far more popular) so Thai agricultural companies (possibly other countries' too) decided to stop killing so many birds, leading to a shortage in supply. Furthermore the Thais have increased the price of their chicken. Apparently prices will only continue to increase, according to my dad (who works for one of the Thai companies).
  10. My Blueberry Nights

    I have seen it. It's by no means bad, it incorporates a few of the visual techniques that you'd be familiar with if you've seen Chungking. I think it's worth watching if you're a fan, not as good as his previous work though.
  11. The guy behind me burst into laughter after about 30 seconds of the film, so my immediate thought was that nothing in the film would be funny enough to counteract this annoyance. I was wrong, but not in the way I wanted to be; it was so unfunny that even the guy behind hardly laughed. The funniest part of the film, I think, is Ferrell singing 'get that funk out of my face' in the trailer, aside from a few giggles, even if you're a big Ferrell fan, I'd wait to borrow someone's DVD. The film seems completely disjointed too, there's a bizarre sub-plot with Woody Harrelson and the woman from ER, both of whom appear to be normal, rational characters, juxtaposed with completely irrational, comic figures like Ferrell and ER woman's husband. I assume this was intentional but, in my opinion, doesn't work in any respect. I thought this was far worse than Blades of Glory and obviously didn't come close to Anchorman or Talledega.
  12. The Killers - Sawdust

    It's pretty good considering it's only a collection of B-Sides. I'm surprised by how much publicity its had to be honest.
  13. Arranging your mp3 collection

    I've got everything organised in iTunes. If I've got individual tracks they're in various pop, hip-hop etc artist sections Everything is within 7 broad genres and each genre has a differen't equalizer. Every album has its artwork. Very http://www.pariswells.org/pics/funny/Anal.bmp
  14. The Killers - When You Were Young

    This is what was said in the earlier thread: Me: "You may have heared it played on Radio One, the new Killers single When You Were Young, it's playing on The Killers Main Page Personally, I'm a big fan of The Killers and I love this, kind of reminds me of Meat Loaf and U2 though. I can see it being a popular song at next year's festivals. I like the 'epic' production and the vocals have grown on me, it deffinetly gets better with repeated listens I think. The single is out in September with the album following in October." Clubuk: "First impressions... Sounds a lot like smile like you mean it but with strings instead of synths. I see what you mean about Meatloaf though. Not a drastic change from the first album, not a lot of progress made. Also some of the lyrics are a bit cheesy (hurricanes etc..) Hopefully its a grower but they could end up proving themselves to be one trick ponies. This above is all based on one listen, it's now playing for the second time and I can't help thinking "pompous yanks" Don't know why" No other new stuff has come about yet. A CD rip of WYWY is 'around', searching 'When You were young promo' on google yields some interesting results.
  15. The Killers
