WHAT IS THIS - WHAT IS THISSSSSSSSSS

is this for real? even if not, it’s the best trailer (and use of inception horns) i’ve seen in months.

silver linings playbook. shit name for a movie but it’s david o. russell and stars two people i don’t mind watching in movies. in fact, i kind of love jennifer lawrence and kinda like bradley cooper. they appear to have real problems though. mental illness. fun fun fun.

this crappy youtube is a glimpse of the movie experience in madras. you are watching people losing their shit for a trailer of what might be the 15 trillionth tamil love story.

there will be nothing new or special about that movie except that it’s highly hotly intensely anticipated. why? because reasons. 

i’m posting this as a public service announcement if you or your loved ones ever plan to go to a south indian movie theatre. it’s really closer to a pantomime with real time reactions (including dancing out of sheer fucking excitement) than it is to a regular get-your-tubs-of-popcorn-and-stare-at-the-screen experience you get anywhere else.

i also want to point out that guy who made the video here also offers some trivia about the music composer in the end (he was his senior at PSBBSSS). this will happen throughout the movie. there will be entire conversations as if nothing has changed since the lights have dimmed and a giant projection of a motion picture has commenced for them to stop discussing the price of cauliflowers or something.

i miss this. kind of.

der tiger von eschnapur

the set is trimurthy-worthy and the chick debra paget is nimble, i’ll give them that. but vot vot vot is this germany? i’m gonna go on a limb and guess that the princely-looking turban dude and his band of brahmins are not the good guys. 

The Tiger of Eschnapur, or in original German, Der Tiger von Eschnapur, is a 1959 German adventure directed by Fritz Lang. It is the first of two films comprising what has come to be known as Fritz Lang’s Indian Epic; the other is The Indian Tomb (Das Indische Grabmal). Fritz Lang returned to Germany to direct these films, which together tell the story of a German architect, the Indian Maharahaja for whom he is building a temple, and the Eurasian dancer who comes between them.

because indian temples are always based on german architecture (*they stole the atharvaveda doncha know). 

*i have no idea about the origin of that accusation. i just hear it all the time.

Watching Spike Lee’s race musical School Daze again. This scene is so great — good hair vs. bad hair politix as acted out in jitterbug dance scene. Love the choreography, plus spot Jasmine Guy, she’s a pretty good dancer.

You know Lee asked EU to write ‘Da Butt’ specifically for this movie? Learned that thru his slightly strange/selectively verbose but characteristically Knicks-fealty twitter feed.

this looks okay. naw more like everything i like in a movie. to the youtubes!

these are the only things that make me cry. it’s a little much to ask when they get into the busier work of filming, but i hope there’s more to come with this level of coverage.

And we’re off: Video blog from the set of THE HOBBIT, Day One. That did my heart some good.

this face here, belongs to one jamie parker. best known as scripps from the history boys, my favourite character. everything about him is appealing to me: understated, stable, intelligent, anglican (this one i can leave or take). and jamie parker has that kind of steady physicality which is rare in actors these days. 
also he plays the piano, like a boss.

this is the stupendously dull story of how a single picture of an averagely attractive person can slightly alter one person’s outlook on a entire movie culture. this photo started a chain of thoughts and actions that lead to my watching my first kannada movie ever. it was called pancharangi and it was actually ok. 
went something like this (the chain, not movie):
see picture on tumblr dashboard.
he looks good. what’s his name?
what a weird name. google: “diganth”
oh kannada =( 
youtube: “diganth” (search option>upload date)
why do i understand every word? 
WHOA this is like a tamil and telugu mashup
my people!
ayo the entire movie is on youtube.
hmmm it’s 3am.
he is cute.
5:30am. that was actually ok.
i can reasonably understand most major languages from india (yea there’s more than just indian), especially southie ones. but there was something about kannada that i irrationally didn’t like. idk why, really. just didn’t have much respect for their movies/music or anything. and now i think they’re like everyone else. progress. 
hah makes me sound so terrible. sorry kannadigas, you’re good people. i’m just not big on yer movies. except him. he’s ok.
