I didn't draw this, but I wish I had.

I think the artist was specifically trying to go more with the "disquietingly aloof waxy model" rather than the "fetching chit from the 1920s" angle.

I'm not really a good judge of human beauty. I do better with machines - take this vacuum cleaner, for example. It *is* a triple-bag easy-glide vac with turbo-suction and a self-emptying dustbag.

I'm just done watching one of my all time favorites: The Uninvited (1944)

Boy what a thrill. This is one of the last films my adoptive father introduced me to. He was such a movie aficionado, even more than I've ever been.

The acting, spotless, pure class. The setting, as charming as it was spooky. The script, a beautifully balanced mixture of suspense and classic hair-raising scenarios. All in all, a joy to watch, even if you're not big into ghostly stuff.

No depravity, no ridiculous fx's and no tokenism. Now this a real movie in every sense of the word, and to top it off, the house would make a great Blood map, specially the attic 8)

Some of those concerns are rubbish! The film's 'slower' parts are some of its best and I like the 'is he good? Your opponent' piece.

Then again I like everything about it. Thanks for the sheet!

Two competing Oscar award movies:

Zero Dark Thirty
Argo (that won Oscar)

Now, I know that Oscars are like all awards: assholes. But, being Oscar candidate, they aren't really that bad usually.
I have to say though, Zero Dark Thirty should have won. Argo for me felt too rushed out. It lacked epicness (excuse me for using the word epic, but in classic terms it means story in long time period). Zero Dark Thirty was also pretty rushed out in my opinion, and lacked good dramatic writing despite longer run time. I have to say that the actual part of hunting down Osama was one of the most exciting things I've seen in a while. But maybe that's because I love all tactical masturbation.

Speaking of tactiwank, has anyone seen Act of Valor? I enjoyed the bit more realistic combat a lot. It had lot's of American good ol' flag in the wind scenes but I was okay with that. But I then, I don't understand all the "critics" who say that Zero Dark Thirty was propaganda movie. What the fuck?

Maybe Panoptic Blur can share his views on this?

I have to admit that I don't usually watch movies right after they come out.

This has nothing to do with cinema taste, and is purely to do with habit and cost. If movies were more available on streaming I'd watch them. I can't be of much help regarding "recent" movies, I'm afraid. :/

I recently had the chance to sit down with an old friend and watch movies over the course of five days. This friend lives in a country where the media is tightly controlled by the government, and films with political or social commentary often don't make the cut.

The films I watched were: Syriana, The Beast of War, Downfall, and The Lives of Others.

Next time I think I'll show them Munich, Michael Clayton, Hotel Rwanda, and City of God.

In the morning, the word "whipoorwill" persistently entered my mind. I familiarized myself with the bird's distinctive song via wikipedia. On the same day, during the night, I stumbled upon a loose film adaptation of The Dunwich Horror. To my surprise, whipoorwhil singing was used as macabre symbolism within the movie. Although the original story by HP Lovecraft uses such a symbol too, I was about 12 when I read that and it was not a detail which I remembered.

The plot barely resembled the story it was based on, but not a bad film. Its main tune sounded quite familiar.
