Linked 27/1

linked12This Sunday’s Linked is special: I’m back home! Needless to say, I’m quite happy to be back in my little corner of screens (big computer screen, laptop screen, TV screen) – I feel as if they are all out to get me and I love it! Since I had a lot of packing and other activities this week, posting and reading was quite minimal but something is always better than nothing. Besides, I have a feeling next week is going to be packed with A LOT of movie reviews but let’s talk about this week now!

My week:

  • Sunday was actually awesome with two movies, Bachelorette and Life of Pi, where the first one still needs my negative review on its idiotic plot.
  • I also watched Here Comes the Boom and actually enjoyed it, though it was totally predictable and lame. Plus, I still need to review Beasts of the Southern Wild  that, well, let’s just say, it isn’t a contender for the Best Picture in my mind.
  • As if my packing and social activities didn’t keep me busy enough, I also watched Bunheads which I love and I’m 100% certain that it’s because the creator was behind Gilmore Girls and the whole show has the same vibe! Even the guest actors are from Gilmore Girls!
  • Purchased a new notebook to write down the movies I’ve seen, it’s no Moleskine but it will do the job. So far, it’s been doing it quite well, I might add.
  • Wrote two part essay type rambling about the Downfall of comedieshumiliation and mistreating women were the key notions and some even agreed.
  • This week didn’t even come close to the madness that was last week, though, I wish it did because then I could get 20.000 views a month and well, what more could a girl want?
  • Started reading Beautiful Creatures for the purpose of doing a really intense book to film review later on this year but I was surprised to find that a boy was the storyteller – the trailer seemed to be all about the girl, but the book is all about the boy! I’m confused now.
  • I promised to watch Girls but I didn’t, so now I have two series to watch this week, Girls and American Horror Story. But before I can do all of that, I have some unpacking to do which I’ve conveniently left to Sunday because… why not, right?!

LINKS:

Last Sunday Margaret from Cinematic Corner made me want to see The Paperboy but though I’m still getting to it, I’m guessing I will enjoy it.

Love & Squalor also watched Amour and loved it as well, and yes, I think this movie is accompanied with tears one way or the other.

Terry Malloy’s Pigeon Coop liked Les Misérables a lot more than I expected, but as we discussed, it might have something to do with his connection with it. I still need to see it though.

Stevee from Cinematic Paradox  is back from Japan (finally!) and she finally(!) saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower and she loved it, just as I expected.

New LAMB Cinema Train wrote a great post of 5 must-read books about film – which reminded me that I should read more and not just teen fiction.

Modern Family had one of the best scenes of this season when Phil was the Godfather. It was hilarious and brilliant and I have a feeling I will be very mad after watching Girls that Modern Family didn’t get the Globe.
