    Saw two movies this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed them both.

    - Inside Llewyn Davis - biting dark humor, bit difficult to watch at times but well-paced and the folk music used throughout the movie were enjoyable

    - Blue Is the Warmest Colour - beautiful but heartbreaking portrayal of young love, a wonderful character study and the cinematography was amazing

    Watched the following on the flight(s) during my recent trip to SE Asia:

    -12 Years a Slave: Good flick. Good story.

    -Dallas Buyers Club: I probably liked this the most. Well deserved awards.

    -Inside Llewyn Davis: Not bad. Dragged at times. I liked the NYC "base" during the 60's. Ending was just..eh.

    -Captain Phillips: Not bad. I also saw "A Hijacking" on Netflix prior to my trip so I had that in my mind as I watched.

    -All is Lost: Fell asleep on this one.

    -Gravity: Watchable. Nothing really special IMO.

    Just back from a late showing of Enemy; interesting film, provoked very different reactions from my mates ('What the...?' 'But...but...' 'Wow, that was gutsy').

    Decent to good performances, very slow pace (which I don't mind, but one of my friends was quite pissed off with) and a story that is guaranteed to provoke (possibly lengthy) discussions. I'm considering getting the book out from the library.

    Rewatched Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones last night. It is not in any way a good movie but the last twenty minutes are awesome, worth it for that alone.

    Watched Little Odessa last night... I got annoyed with it about halfway through, but kept watching anyway. Afterwards there was a documentary about the film, and I guess it was ok...but the director and the actors all talking about the filming, they just all sounded to freaking pretentious... The film is decent, but the most impressive part about it for me is Tim Roth---he pulls off a VERY GOOD New York accent, even though he's British. Edward Furlong does his "distant" look throughout the entire film, and everyone is sad and shitty. Not a picker-upper.

    I just watched "Rush", the story of the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt and the struggle for the Formula 1 world championship in 1976.

    It was thoroughly enjoyable. The racing scenes were great and the cars both looked and sounded extremely realistic. The acting was also very good and Daniel Bruhl was the spitting image of Niki Lauda.

    Highly recommended to any racing fans.

    They actually used historic F1 cars; which makes it even cooler, right?

    It certainly does - I did wonder if the Tyrrell six-wheeler was the real thing or a replica and the other cars looked very genuine, too.

    Apart from the racing scenes, I think that the scene that I enjoyed the most was when Lauda was hitching a lift with his future wife through the Italian countryside, and her Peugeot broke down and they got a lift from two F1-mad Italians who didn't care about the attractive lady but who were absolutely crazy about the fact that Niki Lauda (NIKA LAUDA!!!) was in their car. I hope that part of the story was true, as it was lovely.

    I hope she doesn't think you spend too much time on SF. Because I'm prepared to do my best Nick Charles impersonation; I was practically born an alcoholic.

    Same here. Loved that whole scene, from him telling her how his ass is a genius to when he finally calculates that the potential rewards of driving the borrowed car like an F1 driver outweighed the risk.

    I really liked this movie. It would be better if they left out the conclusion of blacksmith's story out. He should have just stayed in the tavern, it was annoying distraction that was subpar to the rest of the story. It took away from the squire whose insight was actually worth a damn and he was less visible in the 2nd half of the movie.
    It gets 8wojts out of 10. Would get 7,5 but wojts only come in natural numbers.
