I think Moonrise Kingdom is the best Wes Anderson film; his other work doesn't really appeal to me.

I had a free afternoon, so I watched 4 terribly mediocre films: Steel Frontier, Changing Hearts, I downloaded a ghost and Ants in the Pants. Strangely, almost all of them had rabbits in them.

Ants in the Pants and Steel Frontier were bearable, but the other two were awful. You're probably best of never watching any of them.

I don't really appreciate the strange vibe in Wes Anderson's films. I've hated all of them except for Bottle Rocket. I especially hated his interpretation of Fantastic Mr. Fox.

I've been rewatching Breaking Bad and it has been really interesting. There is a ton of foreshadowing that you pick up on when you know what happens. I've been watching it with my parents, though, and it's been making me think less of them since they get incredibly confused whenever a scene happens out of chronological order no matter how obvious it is. It's not too hard to figure out a scene takes place in the past when it has a dead character alive in it, geez.

I watch movies once in a blue moon. But my favourite ones are martial arts. Preferable Bruce Lee ones. Has anyone seen the Police Story trilogy?

The World's End coming out next month...
Yes I am very excited

Anyone watching Game of Thrones? Is it worth watching?

I'm watching it and I've read all the books so far. They're pretty good, though I think they're a bit over-rated. Still a good read/watch if you like medieval fantasy. The world is very fleshed out.

I watch it and I absolutely adore the show. I haven't read the books (to be honest I don't read as often as I should, and when I do read I usually prefer to read nonfiction).

A lot of the fun comes from my friends and I all watching the show together and talking about it after each episode.

I find most people find one or two characters they really like, one or two they really dislike/don't care about, and are more or less indifferent to the rest of them.

Thanks, I'll watch it in the near future. I have been having fun with downton abbey in the meantime. It's quite soapy at times (this starts in season 2), but it's nicely written and the production values are high.

I was just caught completely off guard by the film Almost Famous; my insides still feel warm. I'm not even a fan of the seventies or Rock n Roll, this film was just really well-made. I highly recommend it.

I haven't seen much Korean film, but Castaway on the Moon was really nice. Well polished, cute and funny, while also dealing with loneliness in an unique way. The female lead is the most accurate portrayal of a NEET I've seen in any film with real people.

So! It SEEMS we have a new Doctor Who on the way. Taking a break from younger actors we have been given an Old Scotsman.
How will he fair as the new Doctor?

Breaking Bad is back!

I loved The Royal Tenenbaums, and I guess personally that's my favorite, and Moonrise Kingdom is second.

They're both really close though.

I'm really glad! It's my favorite

I'm watching Skins and it's lovely. The humour is nice and over-the-top, but the show shines at showing the subjectivity of it all.

I'm really interested in Japanese drama. The other day I found 貴様と俺 (You and me) and this:

I've yet to learn Japanese to enjoy those but they look promising.

I've hear about that. Is it the american or British one?
21 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-16 05:39

The British one. I haven't heard much good about the american version. I'm also still at season 1, so the show could take all sorts of turns.

Oh cool, the spoilers I glimpsed for these last Breaking Bad episodes turned out to be complete lies. Now I will be completely surprised!

i am currently watching Luther. it's pretty good if you like detective shows - it's a UK show staring Idris Elba.

I think I'm going to rewatch Lily Chou-Chou no subete. It's beautiful.

This is a film I put on on lazy Sunday afternoons, while I lay in my bed with a book and those beautiful scenes flickering in the background until I fall asleep. It's more than just a film; it started so much for me.

Is breaking bad really that great?

It's pretty good. It feels like watching a pretty good hollywood movie with some nice psychological elements.

I've been watching Peep Show recently. I can't believe I never got into it sooner, it's painfully relatable.

It's a great show, you can re-watch it indefinitely. If you're finished you should definitely check out That Mitchell and Webb Look.
34 Name: Anonymous : 2013-09-23 23:38
I really liked series 1-7 of Peep Show, but I tried watching the eighth and I felt like it wasn't funny anymore because I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters. It might just be me, but I do feel like the tenor of the show has changed.

Breaking Bad ended. Anyone else catch it?

I did. To be honest, Breaking Bad really lost my attention somewhere around the beginning of season 3. After that I only watched the rest of it just to finish it. The ending wasn't bad or anything, but I'm not going to say that Breaking Bad is the best show that ever aired on television. The first two seasons were awesome, and it would've been great if it had had a well written ending shortly thereafter. I just really didn't like the way the show turned out during season 3. So I wasn't too hyped/impressed by the ending of it all.

La Grande Bellezza, 2013
★★★★★
At the surface a movie about nostalgia, but at the core about living for strong emotions, truth and struggle versus the joy of living to enjoy everyday life. Beautifully shot and easy to get into.

I watched Betty Blue a while ago, and I was just thinking today about how much rather I would have had them stay on the beach in the perfect little house, painting indefinitely.

I watched the live-action movie of ReLife tonight. It skips over a lot of stuff (obviously, the manga's pretty long), but I think it's more satisfying than the anime because it actually has an ending rather than building up to a sudden stop. I am rather disappointed that they removed Onoya's plot importance but kept her in the movie. She just stands around and has a couple of lines.
On the whole, it's not Academy Award material, but it's a pleasant way to spend two hours.
