    You got 70-something-percent right, that's great I guess? Am bit iffy with the Birdman win when there's Boyhood, Grand Budapest and American Sniper contending but it's whatever. It's a good film! Dat cinematography! Though that screenplay win is pretty irksome (should have gone to Grand Budapest). And that John Travolta portion. Christ on sale.

    Also, you should really be updating your blog more. Maybe put the reviews you make on Letterboxd into some sort of Week in Review thing on your Wordpress? I would definitely read it; I love the way you write. Its bookmark would so perfectly sit next to some other film blogs I subscribe to.

    Eyyy, your rating for Kumiko is making me feel sad. Is it that bad? A Fargo "meta spin-off" thing starring Kikuchi was sounding so great to me.

    yeah i imagine the rym charts are practically identical. never understood the love for pulp fiction mysef either, as good as it is.

    nice. I miss London, but I love Brighton so am looking forward to that. We should get together with Adri again some time.

    yeah I thought I was ready for it )': I'll probably watch The Seventh Seal sometime soon. I feel like there's definitely something in Persona that I just wasn't picking up on that first time, so someday. maybe I will love it eventually.

    oopsies I forgot to respond. man when I went to see Inherent Vice there were like 5 other people in the audience and it was opening weekend. they were all 50+ too. the voiceovers were great. Josh Brolin was psyducking hilarious in it, the scene where he's eating the chocolate covered banana in the car made me lose my muk and I don't even know why. and the end when he dumped the tray of weed into his mouth was also quite priceless. and did it really make you interested in the book? if anything it turned me off completely from it, I feel like that kind of meandering in a book would be totally uninteresting. and this is from someone whose favorite novel is Infinite Jest. (I'm not sure what that actually means, but I guess it implies I'm not averse to meandering in books? IJ has zero plot and I still love it. maybe I just need to dislodge my head from my ass)

    jesus christ seeing that with a live score sounds really, really cool. I loved Under the Skin the first time I saw it, but the second time a lot of the things that I found really interesting or Clever or Well-Done just kind of felt... hokey. or something. the only scene that affected me like it did the first time was the scene where you see the guy, like, pop. that still psyducks me up. and everything after the deformed guy I didn't really enjoy as much, but the ending is really, really cool. and I was less wowed by the cinematography. so maybe I should have just not watched it again and stayed impressed by it.

    anywho, I watched Persona yesterday, and I didn't like it much. honestly, I think I was expecting something totally off-the-rails, and I think I hyped it up too much going in. my favorite scenes were the beginning and end and the part in the middle where the film reel like, explodes. everything else felt KIND OF disposable and I found Bibi Andersson's character deeply annoying. but I did some reading up on it after and I think I missed a fair bit. I'll have to watch again at some point.

    Ah right, skipped over the date. Sharing a space with St. Vincent is a life goal of mine, and I reckon I'll be able to check her out if she plays at Singapore again next year with Laneway Festival. Lucky-ass Londoners.

    Okayyyy. I'll just be here listening to Black Messiah on repeat. I'm actually crazy on The Soulquarians right now. Been listening to a lot of Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Common, J Dilla and The Roots in the past week, and it's been like perpetual zen every day. Pretty cool feeling, would highly recommend it.

    BOOOO *throws greasy movie popcorn at Cat* Tell me 'bout them later, ya scum.

    Make sure you're standing front-and-center when Annie plays Krokodil. She does a crowd surf and you can briefly graze your hand on her angel-skin if you're lucky.

    I'm actually so jealous right now that I might just throw up. You should know that this is where I start getting resentful towards you. Don't be telling me you're gonna go see St. Vincent and FKA twigs and muk sometime soon too.

Apologies for those expecting a Futurama reference, but I can assure you that I have not missed a 'the' in the title of this blog post.

I assume that maybe three people will check this out (those three being shenanigans, maccrash and Rest), but I thought I'd do my part to publicise the brilliant new short animated film World of Tomorrow by Don Hertzfeldt. The brief synopsis is below, although...

So... it's been a while! But it'll be worth it when you see evidence of my visit to London's first cat cafe! Similar to the ones in Japan, Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium opened up on March 1 of this year in London (about 15 minutes from my house)... and it's already fully booked up until June! Deservedly so, as well. Home to about 10 rescue kitties - all adorable - it's a supremely relaxing environment where you can read a good book (on offer included The Art of War by Sun Tzu, Long Day's Journey Into...

The following is suitable for people aged 13 or over.

A bit of background is necessary for this one, as it's my favourite in this burgeoning 'series' of blog posts and a bit of context goes a long way.

At the end of last month, in and around Thanksgiving, I went to the US for just over a week to visit some friends out there (one in New York who is from there originally, the other in Virginia who's doing an internship at NATO for 6 months). I'm lucky enough to have been to NYC a number of times, so have done...

A pretty interesting article comparing Nintendo's recent fortunes to those of Walt Disney Animation Studios in the early 1980s.

If you like either of those things (whether recent or from the early 1980s), I suggest checking out this article.
