REASONS GOBLET OF FIRE IS THE WORST IN THE SERIES
- Choppy editing
- Ugly cinematography
- Crazy Dumbledore
- Emma Watson’s hyperactive eyebrows
- Ron and Hermione moan for the duration of the film but don’t think to lend Harry any emotional support when he witnesses Cedric get murdered by Voldemort
LA ROUX AND THE MYSTERY OF THE SECOND ALBUM
Does anybody know for sure what’s going on with the follow-up to their debut album? It’s been four years now and we know they’ve been working on it for ages. Elly’s even been performing four new songs throughout the year - Uptight Downton, Kiss and Not Tell, Sexoteque and Tropical Chancer (all of which sound great, by the way). I’ve read stories about Elly falling out with the record label and this being the reason for the delay. Also, a YouTube user posted this a few hours ago:
"Along with these, other possible songs are My Paradise is Your Paradise is You, the Whistling Song, and Lay Me Down. I really like these songs and I hope she gets the fuckin thing out soon."
Say what? I’m not asking for a rushed release, but it would be nice to have some clarity on the situation.
'WE HAVE JUST FOLDED SPACE FROM IX.'
I just watched the extended three-hour cut of David Lynch’s Dune. It’s both frustrating and fascinating. The narrative benefits from the additional footage (particularly the second half of the film) but the dodgy editing, the omission of some of the more gruesome scenes and the constant tampering with the score prevents it from achieving true greatness. I’d love a definitive director’s cut of the film. It’s just a shame that Lynch is reluctant to revisit it.
Also, I finished the novel yesterday and very much enjoyed it!
"I LIKE HAVING NICE TITS."
My girlfriend and I watched Showgirls a couple of nights ago. We both really enjoyed it, and not even in a let’s-laugh-at-how-terrible-it-is way ala Troll 2 and The Room. That’s not to say the film didn’t have its share of eyebrow-raising moments, but otherwise, this is yet another one of those maligned films which I genuinely like.
