  1. Morr's cover album Blue Skied an' Clear is also amazing.

    The Road

    On the note of product placement, I think coke is totally suitable and one of the few items you can get away with having. It totally made sense to me. Vitamin Water on the other hand... that one definitely wasn't in the book.

    The Road

    Thought the soundtrack was a bit intrusive and not particularly different from what Cave did for Ghosts of... and Proposition. The film was good though and mostly faithful. I thought it totally nailed one of the early key scenes and had glimpses of Southern Comfort and Deliverance, but the later more important cellar scene was lacking a bit and as it hangs over the rest of the film, was a bit of a disappointment. Couldn't fault the costume design and visuals, I didn't even think about them during the film, you just get absorbed straight away. However, on reflection would say the cold temperature wasn't very well-realised, there was only one scene where I really felt the cold, but for the most you didn't exactly think they were heading towards freezing to death or anything. Dream sequences worked really well, in fact I'd say more powerful than the book, I didn't quite feel their relationship in the book, but Theron's performance really brought it out. Felt the boy was slightly older than was needed and it gave the impression he was much more capable and aware, whereas in the book he seemed much more exposed and naive. The man was spot on, though and acted really well. Didn't feel it was too long and although a few bits from the book were missed, think it was necessary to reel in the length. The coastal scenes didn't play out quite the same as the book and I thought made slightly less sense, they led up to Omar who needed to lose a fair bit more weight to play that part. The scene with the flare gun was a bit rushed and the wife of the guy in the house didn't seem to react as you'd expect her to. The man does voice-over for a fair bit of the film, but I found it quite essential, otherwise you'd lose the sense of survival completely, I think. Overall definitely worth watching and I'm so glad they didn't show any of the actual apocalypse as the trailer did. In fact it was nothing like the trailer whatsoever. Ending spoilers:
  4. It's a film score, so a little different to his usual stuff, but nothing at all like his score for Dís (which is probably my fave of his).
  5. I've seen The xx twice now, but they didn't quite meet expectations. The album is nice enough, but not one I've repeated tons, it's just nice now and then - they're are some really great tracks on it. Here's some stuff I've been listening to recently: Beach House - Teen Dream Memory Tapes - Seek Magic Kings of Convenience - Declaration of Dependence Takagi Masakatsu - Tai Rei Tei Rio Little Dragon - Machine Dreams Port Sword Tobacco - Everything is Music to the Ear JJ - No. 2 Múm - Sing Along to Songs You Don't Know Grouper & Xela - Tsuki No Seika Mapstation - The Africa Chamber Harlem Shakes - Technicolor Health The Whitest Boy Alive - Rules Jóhann Jóhannsson - And in the Endless Pause There Came the Sound of Bees Tenniscoats & Pastels - Two Sunsets Guitar - Friends Man, I've liked tons this year, I can think of loads more.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Liverpool did really well to block off our usual forms of attack, you barely saw Evra get down the wing like usual and there was nothing getting through the middle. On top of that, there was constantly two men closing down our ball, meaning we never got any space or a chance to pass the game. All credit to Liverpool, they were more up for it, had the tactics right and orchestrated it well. Feel disappointed that Carragher wasn't shown red for his foul on Owen towards the end and I thought there were a few other poor decisions from the ref, but we can't really complain about those not going our way when we never looked like having the desire to win it.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Astonishing game. Lots of great performances, in particular from Giggs. Masterclass from United for parts of the second half. A few unbelievable individual mistakes from players on both sides. Two superb goals from Bellamy, which should stand him in good stead for keeping his place amongst a packed attacking squad. Not sure about the rules for adding on time after a substitution and a goal/celebrations during injury time, but it felt like it ran on just slightly too long. An absolute rollercoaster with no dull moments; I hope all Manchester derbies are this good now. So many talking points.
