Bizarre movie, but really amazing acting all around.
I don't think I even really need to recommend Monty Python. If you don't already know who they are and that they are absolutely brilliant, you have been living in some sort of cave for your entire life. Life of Brian is a brilliant movie and Holy Grail is pure comedy genius. Just watch Monty Python. All of it. Now. Seriously.
This is beautiful. I'm like a librarian, in that the desecration of books usually infuriates me, but these paintings are so brilliant that I am completely fine with the use of novels as a canvas. There's something strangely poetic about this that I can't quite put my finger on...
Since discovering who he was about two months ago, Stephen Merchant has become my favorite person in the world. He co-wrote both The Office and Extras with Ricky Gervais but often misses out on the celebrity credit due to the more backseat roles he takes in terms of acting. He is smart and endearing and his often self-depreciating humor cracks me up every time.
This movie was terrible, but I watched it anyway because I absolutely love Stephen Merchant. I mean, to give it credit, it was very funny, and I know it wasn't supposed to high class cinema, but still. The part at the very end with Steve Merchant was the funniest scene in the entire movie, I thought. Worth a watch if you all you want is a bit of mind numbing, crude comedy.
This is my favorite movie ever. It's very cerebral and bizarre, but that's what I love about it. It shows, in the strangest possible way, just how deeply our choices and actions affect the world around us. The soundtrack is incredible, the plot line is mind blowing, and the acting is amazing. All around a fantastic movie.
I am absolutely in love with his books. It still freaks me out a little how precisely he describes my own thoughts and feelings coming from the characters he created. I've been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to write this review and I realized that my feelings for his work are literally indescribable. Seriously read his books and you'll see the world in an entirely different way.
Easily one of my favorite authors. His works include Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. His novels may look simplistic on the surface but they dig dip into the mysteries of life and love as a teenager. Pick up one of his books, you won't regret it.
The animation adds a certain something to the original radio shows and podcasts that just makes them even more amazing than they already were. If you enjoy this show, I would definitely suggest looking up the original radio shows on iTunes, as the HBO adaptations were forced to cut many of the funniest bits. Or check out the Youtube channel RandyAnders for some of the shows free. I love this show!
A really compelling read. It was strangely fascinating reading from the point of view of a 5 year old boy who is only familiar with the inside of the room he was born in. It was a weird experience knowing exactly the things that he was describing, despite him not knowing the name for them. A very sad story told with hope and optimism; definitely recommended.
I really love this band. Since I first heard "Basic Space", they've become one of my all time favorite groups. They have a very different, experimental vibe that I really enjoy. If you're just going to listen to one song to see if you want to listen to more, I'd go with VCR, it gives a good impression of their music overall. True, this band isn't for everyone, but just listen with an open mind.
I started watching the HBO adaptations of these a year or so ago and I just recently started downloading the radio shows. Most amazing things ever! I was often reduced to tears of laughter while listening. These 3 men are hysterical! I have since become a huge fan of Stephen Merchant in particular. A must for anyone with an appreciation for comedy, as long as you don't mind a bit of crude humor.
I just found this book lying around my house one day and though it's not the kind of book I generally read, I decided to give it a try. Best decision ever. This has become one of my favorite books ever. It is inspiringly written and beautifully depicts the struggles of a crumbling family stuck in the heart of Africa. Anyone with an appreciation for good literature will enjoy this book.
This show is absolutely brilliant. I mean, I enjoyed The Office, but I am in love with Extras. I'd never really been much of a Gervais fan until very recently, and that change was made primarily due to Stephen Merchant, who I still prefer. Darren Lamb is the best part of the show! Recommended for anyone who has a deep love for British humour, such as myself.
I admit, I'm one of the many that discovered this band through Portal, but since then I've come to really like them. Their songs have a unique melancholy feel about them that I haven't found anywhere else. However, the lead singer's voice is different from those of most other singers, so the songs can start to sound similar after a while. Still definitely worth a listen if you're into indie music.
I used to really love this show, but it's just been running far too long. It was great in its prime, but then pretty much all of the original characters left. Sara was my favorite character and she left, which was disappointing, but I didn't really lose my patience until the main character, Grissom left. It's like CSI:Miami without Horatio Cane! It's just all wrong...
Supernatural=best show of my life. Supernatural has great characters and a really interesting overall premise. In one episode, they can smoothly transition from hilarious to dark and dramatic without feeling awkward. Yeah, it has it's cliches and bad story archs, but doesn't every show? Overall, pretty amazing, but then again I've been a die hard fan for the past 3 years.
