Not a movie but a mini series - True Detective -

Excellent show - and Matthew McConaughey is just awesome all over the place. His best work yet I for me.

I find it to be a disappointment. One more episode to go and I don't think it can be saved. It even borders on pissing me off,
'cause there is so much potential. I think the director is in over his head. it's totally devoid of atmosphere or depth.
The approx 7 hours I have seen needs a complete overhaul/re-edit and a trim down to maybe 3.5 hours, maybe even 2.

I was surprised when I found out that people are embracing the show.

PS sorry, don't mean to be so negative. I'm glad you are enjoying it. Maybe my expectations were too high.
I bought HBO specifically to watch it, maybe I am just cheap...

Well... it happens. My wife hasnt been all that into it either and she is from some of the places in LA they talk about. It's certainly paced.

I love that film noir type of story approach. I think McConaughey is brilliant. I think trimming it down would hurt the reasons I like it so much. There is a delicate dance happening for me and to think - one more episode - might be cramming it in.

As far as the director goes... what is pissing you off in that respect? I view directors more from a visual side of things - so that has been quite good for me. Especially that 6 min single take.

Ah well. Cheers. Smile

Not enough coffee in me yet to comment, but perhaps I should wait 'til after the finale anyway? So, I will see you soon!

Right on. haha. I keep trying to think about how this plays out in 55 mins. This last episode might be the editing job story telling you were after. Smile

Dr. Who: The Movie Finally got around to seeing this. It's interesting to watch. It's like a nice bridge between the "classic series" and the new series production values. I also liked Eric Roberts as The Master. It's a shame we didn't get a chance to have more McGann as The Doctor. I also waited to hear "Who Are You" playing somewhere in this one, since the first third of the movie was spent with The Doctor trying to figure out who he was.


This "movie" is an abomination. Thank God it didn't get picked up. McGann's alright though.

Three 2013 movies this week.

"Her" brought up lots of mixed emotions and while watching it I had some logical complaints with things that happened related to the OS and how it worked, but I surely can recommend this movie. Kind of a dystopian study on loneliness.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" - I am not up-to-date with most of the things in mainstream media because I don't consume and care for it. A review in my monthly (leftist/socialist/communist/anti-capitalist) political magazine made me curious about that movie. Great stuff. I'd recommend watching this movie in a double pack together with "American Psycho".

"Dallas Buyers Club" - another biographical movie. very touching! I didn't know about this story before and I think I missed something very important here. Watch it!

"12 years a slave" tonight was very tough to watch. I don't know what to say. But I understand it has to be shown that way.

North of the Sun

I don't think there's any way of watching this for free. I saw it at a local film festival, but have just paid again to get it on Vimeo.

Only 45 minutes, a lovely film made by two young Norwegians who built a cabin out of driftwood and spent the Arctic winter in it.

Surfing in midwinter when the sun don't shine - at all.

No comment required. A classic.


Good, clean Hollywood entertainment. OK, maybe not that clean.


This has been described as the most complicated sci-fi film ever made. I don't doubt it. It clocks in at just over an hour but has enough information to keep you busy for months. Proof is this table describing the time travels and resulting timelines (not all of which are seen in the movie).
