Saw a quite good drama film on N´flix this weekend called "Tallulah". If you like drama film of course. :)
Sorry guys, I am busy with my favorite K-drama.

For all the bad things I always say about contemporary Italian cinema, Vincere really did manage to shut me up. Highly recommended.

^ I will take your recommendation. Time has passed since I watched an Italian movie.

^ The fact that it has Tom Bombadil in it makes it a better rendition than Jackson's already.

On a different note (pun intended), I watched Once and Blinded by the Light. Both films deal with the difference music makes in one's life, the first dealing with the subject in a much more convincing way. If you like Springsteen, though, the second one will be your cup of tea no matter what.

Last night I was a bit tired and really couldn't focus on the books. I wanted something comfy, just to chill, so I put on Visconti's The Leopard, one of my favourite Italian films. Knowing it well, I thought "who cares about the 3 hours, I can fall asleep without offending the great Luchino". It turned out I didn't sleep and stay up until after midnight just for it. Damn you, Visconti.

Was forced to sit through Mortal Kombat with my partner's brother today. Now, I'm probably in the bottom third (honestly, more like bottom tenth) of the worldwide intelligence index, and even I felt dumber after watching this. Only saving grace was Joe Taslim as Sub Zero, but seriously just watch The Night Comes For Us instead if you wanna see him be a badass in a overly violent martial arts film.

Oh, also watched The Courier a few days ago. Benny Cucumber is a top-tier actor.

^ I gave MK a try as well, but it ended up being one of my most elegant three-point shots in the trash bin.

Rich and Famous and Crossing Delancey: I got these for the better half but I'd lie if I said that they didn't move me.

Bumped into David Lean's classic Brief Encounter yesterday. A delightful work on close-ups that really made me wonder about the distinction between dialogues and background noise.
