But it backfires on the movie industry. I remember grabbing a copy of Zathura (kids movie) of dvd quality long before it was released here, because they staggered the release dates in different countries.

Less so with these sort of movies though Yakabot. Despite the massive budget of $12m it is still an arthouse movie and it's release date is more dependent on the movie festival circuit

It's six weeks away and as much as I hate Cate Blanchett's cultural elitism and snobbery she is a damn fine actor and I am looking forward so much to this movie. In the meantime read the book but that is called The Price of Salt written by Patricia Highsmith



Goon


I am reviewing this movie now because it is freaken AWESOME!! and the sequel will be out next year 8-) 8-)

The movie is inspired by hockey enforcer Doug Smith

The movie is based around Doug Glatt, played by Sean William Scott who becomes a hockey enforcer after he beats up a player who climbed into the stands. He sucks at hockey but man can he fight!! He is so good at punching people in the head he gets a call up to the minor league to help protect a prodigal son who has lost all confidence after being smashed by Ross "The Boss" Rhea, played by Ray Donovan, oops, liev schreiber

In the meantime he falls for a girl, Eva played the cute as a button Alison Pill but in order to win redemption Doug must face Ross on the ice

This movie was written by Jay Baruchel and he plays Dougs wise cracking Mick friend Pat and he kills it

It is a stupid movie with a stupid premise and every one of the actors knows it and they play it as such and make this movie really fun and funny to watch. It is a profanity laden, beer soaked slug fest from start to finish that has me laughing so hard I need to wear adult diapers when ever I watch it

Pork, baby, Pork 8-) 8-)


Itty Bitty Titty Committee next

I thought Goon was a great film too. Plus I'm quite a fan of Sean William Scott.

I saw Creed last night at the cinema. I believe it is a spin off to the Rocky films, which I actually haven't seen before, but is still a fairly stand alone film.

Its pretty much a cookie cutter boxing film, typical underdog story etc. But it was still entertaining and well worth my 10 bucks. The acting was pretty decent, story line okay, could have maybe built more around the 'bad guy' to make you hate him more, aha.

A good film, I'd give it Pulled Pork with sides.

On the weekend I watched the entire season of Transparent again and on Tuesday I binge watched Master of None until 2 a.m., which was a bad idea as I had an all day safety course to attend and it was water torture for eight hours

To say these two shows are the best thing T.V. has ever produced is an understatement and grossly unfair. They are equal parts subversively subtle and incisive. Each episode is an absolute triumph of story telling but each show has a standout episode

For Transparent it is ep. 8- Best New Girl and for Master of None it is ep. 7- ladies and Gentlemen


WOW!! Of course these two shows get the whole hog individually but if you watch them like I did recently then you need to go further

These two shows back to back is more like a 17 course BBQ degustation with ALL the sides that is of such sublime magnificence that you float out of the restaurant feeling both high and drunk, yet no drugs were consumed


You settle into the cloud like seats of your limo reflecting on you meal with both hands clutching your full belly and the smile of a Cheshire cat on your face as you are hastily taken to the best club in town. The journey seems to take hours but is only a brief moment in time


As you enter the club all your favourite people are there and as you settle into the evening you are approached by the most beautiful person you have ever seen and they want to talk to you!! The conversation is sharp, poignant and funny and they finally ask you to dance. To let this person see you dance would be a deal breaker so you tell them you have all the grace and rhythm of a thousand fist sized ball bearings bouncing down a skyscrapers fire escape staircase. They smile and ask "What would you like to do instead?"


Fast forward 30 years you sit at the breakfast nook, reading the Saturday paper and removing your false teeth so you can eat your porridge and prunes and you see the same beautiful person across the table and you say "That was the best meal ever"


They look up and over their glasses and away from the hand written letter they were reading and smile back knowingly

I hadn't heard of either of these shows. Guess I better take a look. Haven't had the chance to watch Goon yet either.
Edit - Just had a look at the trailers.
Master, I could get in to that.
Transparent, I'll give it a go, but I don't think it's my cup of tea.
And lastly, I don't know why tapatalk keeps putting a space between my sentences. Oops. Yes I do. I hit the return key.

Loaded with one liners like all good 80's movies,
Outlaw motorbike gang for comic relief,
Man gets the girl story,

Finally got around to watching "Goon". It was okay, but not something I'd watch again.

At Last I am reviewing Itty Bitty Titty Committee

Yep it is a cheap production, yep it is a lesbian love story, yep it is set against the backdrop of Radical Feminist politics and yep it is a DAMN LOT OF FUN!!

They laugh, they cry, they learn to love again.... oh and they BLOW SHIT UP!!

The politics are shallow enough to not be offensive but if you only watch movies expecting every woman to suck your itty bitty peeny weeny, you may not like it

Brisket with sides


Which brings me to Marvels Jessica Jones

Commercial T.V. is dead!! Every show that is built around selling ad space is a vapid, vacant cesspool where creativity drowns in its own mediocrity

Not so Jessica Jones. All 13 episodes were released on Nov. 20 to encourage binge watching and generate buzz and more subscriptions to Netflix, and it works. It also allows producers to make really compelling T.V.

I was skeptical at first given this is a Marvel super hero and with the exception of the first two Tobey Maguire Spiderman movies and the first Ironman they generally suck as well

This is brilliant though and deals with its subject matter with such force and the culture that creates it I think it should be compulsory viewing

There are plenty of essays online discussing this show but I am halfway through my second watching and gotta go

Whole Hog!!!!
