I still want you to introduce more Japanese food! And I've not quite had Unadon (#40) but since I've had the eel nigiri, I want to eat a whole bowl of eel.
I don't need to talk much about this. The film is utter brilliance. It has everything you want in a James Bond film, everything you want in a film period, and a few things you won't expect. Daniel Craig is the perfect Bond for the 21st Century. Adele's theme song is impeccable. Any flaws in this film are nothing compared to it's successes. Go see it NOW.
Here's hoping PSY isn't just a one-hit wonder outside of Korea. He was big before Gangnam Style hit there but now he's everywhere! You just have to see the video to get why there's so much buzz about him and this song. It's definitely the Summer Jam of 2012 (Take that Carly Rae.)
Also good to know: the song refers to a wealthy neighborhood of Seoul and quietly mocks it's %1 residents.
If you like campiness then Ugly Betty is for you. While I thought the show was uneven with over-the-top drama that didn't work as drama or comedy, it is saved whenever America Ferrera as the title character Betty appears. You can fast forward through most of the other parts of the show to get to her appearances. But I also love that her Mexican-American family gets focus too.
You know that movie you saw when you were too young to see it and how it seriously messed you up for the next 20 years and onward? You aren't alone.
While it bills itself as a horror website, the reason to go to Kindertrauma is to see what movies, tv shows, books, etc. gave some kid nightmares and their adult self a nice, big therapy bill. Hint: Horror flicks are just the tip of the iceberg.
While I don't know what inspired Boy Wonder, it will feel reminiscent to fans of Batman. A teenager (Caleb Steinmeyer) takes on street criminals and dishes out harsh justice. However, this isn't a simple superhero story. There are no super powers, no cool gadgets, and no kung-fu. There ARE consequences. There's also rich characterization--almost too much--but it will invest you in every scene.
Drive is the best film I've seen in a long time. I'm sorry I missed it in theaters. It's a great mix of film noir with just enough action and a dash of the classic western. Ryan Gosling is, as usual, brilliant, giving his nameless character subtle but distinct emotions. The director, Nicolas Winding Refn, is new to Hollywood but I will be checking out his previous and future films.
This is awesome!
I need not introduce Japanese foods any more....
The foods which I have NEVER eaten before are16, 53, 58, 60, 72(a raw horse meat! ick!), 87, 91(a poisonous pufferfish! ick!) and 99(ick!).
I’m not into 13 and 101.
There are many foods here, but I say without hesitation “I LOVE 39!!”.
@Ryuukuro The most common Unagi dish is "unagi no kaba-yaki", grilled eel. Skewered unagi is grilled with sweet basting sauce.
The grilled eel is served over steamed rice.That's a"una-don" ( unagi （eel） rice bowl).
The whole griiled eel is a lavish feast for Japanese, too!
While the found footage aspect is stretched too far, the story feels very real. It's almost a superhero/supervillain movie but, really, it's a metaphor for the violent sprees we too often see.
One con (and a spoiler): The black guy dies. I'm sick of that. Otherwise, great movie.
While they've been around for a while, the Longmire romance novel cover spoofs are still funny. They also sound more interesting than whatever books they were based on. What would you rather read: A story about two people falling in love and makin' babies or a story about farts?
(Okay, so maybe that's not so great...)
A trio of vampire women make mayhem in Germany and find a new girl to join the ranks, but this might be a mistake. "We Are the Night" is sexy and stylish. It's a vampire film for real women and the men who love them biting down on their necks.
AND it's on Netflix Instant Watch too!
It's a sitcom that doesn't work like a traditional sitcom.
CONS: It's overly sentimental, especially when main character Ted is involved. He's the lead but I absolutely hate him. I wish he could be written out.
PROS: The comedy is fresh and modern. The story structure is non-linear. The other characters, especially Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), are legen--wait for it--DARY.
A teenage girl comes of age after losing her sister. She reconnects with her father, finds solace in speculative fiction, and takes on the snobby set at her boarding school.
Oh, and there are fairies.
And her mother is an evil witch.
I haven't enjoyed a novel as much as I enjoyed "Among Others" in years.
EDIT: It was just nominated for a 2011 Nebula Award! I hope it wins!
