The Brooklyn Bridge


What better way to follow a super-busy weekend than with a few super-busy week days. Happily though, thy were filled with good company and even great cinema! More on the latter tomorrow.

Meanwhile, as I prepare to watch a little bit of House of cards, I just wanted to say a quick word of thanks to anyone who kept dropping by this space even while I was travelling. Sometimes I wonder if I’m crazy to set those series of posts while I road trip, but getting the odd comment now and then while I’m on the road always makes the R&R feel that much sweeter.

Thanks for sticking around.


For your listening and reading fulfilment, I give you…


Since I last posted a link round-up almost one month ago, there have been several episodes of Not At Odds to delight in. However, if I had to choose just one to highlight, it would be episode four where The Hardestys reflect on their Year of Positivity. Three guesses why I’m recommending it?

Vance wrote a post this week titled “Bambi Aborted”. I dare you not to read.

Well I was looking forward to watching CHAPPIE tonight, but then all the bad reviews came down and scared me off wasting the cash and energy. I will still catch up with it someday, but for now, bask in Josh’s review from Black Sheep and treat it as a warning sign.

Dan Heaton marks a writing hiatus with looking back on how he started writing in the first place.

Mettel Ray believes she might be addicted to television. In the age of full series on Netflix, I can only imagine how hard it is to kick such addictions.

Speaking of starts, Vanessa discusses a start of a different sort. She took a moment this week to map out what’s involved with getting a classic film blog up and going.

A few weeks ago when I watched LUCY, I couldn’t help but wonder how it would compare to the similar subject matter covered in LIMITLESS. Well I can wonder no more because The Flick Chicks have drawn up a comparison.


As for The Tweet of The Week, it really wasn’t even close
