One go, not much thinking and over-thinking. Yup, this looks about right.

I struggled a little with LotR and (maybe) Toy Story, but I’ll give it to them anyway~ I’m also a bit lukewarm about Finding Neverland and Midnight in Paris, and I totally warmed up to Life of Pi… though I don’t mind Argo. With Boyhood over Whiplash (despite me liking the other one better xD), it makes the list a lot more larger than life.

Well, this week has been an active Tabu week~ first, news that Rekha had backed out of Abhishek Kapoor’s Great Expectations adaptation, Fitoor, and having Tabu land on the gig. Then the hindi Drishyam team teased a shot of Tabu in cop get-up in prep for the release of the trailer (my gosh, the movie promotion machine these days). I think they also announced Manoj Bajpayee’s and Tabu’s upcoming film Missing [1], while putting in on the table that Tabu will be playing Katrina Kaif’s sister in Fitoor and not a crazy aunt. Ha, they look nothing alike. Reminds me of Chinese movie-casting.

Phew. I think I covered my basis.

Tabu is going to eat people alive on that set. I know Cuaron’s version is not very popular, but I love it.

Yasuhiro Yoshiura’s Time of Eve is one of my favorite animations of the decade so far, though I do prefer the series, I think. I don’t know how I missed the Kickstarter, though I’ve grown tired of them and it brings the Time of Eve release at the same price of the Japanese release. Sighs. Japanese products.

But look at this beauty~

The ones offered through Amazon, do not offer shipping to my location :( but The Time of Eve Shop does… at a kinda expensive price. Nearly $20 USD in shipping!

Yes!

FURY ROAD

Super spoiler free review of Mad Max: Fury Road available.

Furia en el Camino also available.

These are by far the best stills I’ve found of the film- I don’t know how it happened, but I found them in this Cineplex Taiwanese blog. They are a thing of beauty, and I’ve learned my lesson… so I’m taking and re-posting. I’ve lost many a-movie-still for not keeping an archive. They even got an amazing quality of -possibly- my favorite scene in the movie~

Oh, thank you, bless their hearts. Does anybody know if there’s any plans for a re-release of the film in Bluray (with English subtitles) because I would die. I WOULD DIE.
