A Thousand Hours

Howdy ya'll.

From what I can gather, this is what I got up to this week:

MONDAY - Left uni early to go see friends early in the city for parma night but turns out no one was having parma so I basically came into the city for nothing. Bought some comic books for my troubles.

TUESDAY - Didn't head into uni because I had already done my group presentation. So I don't think there was really any need to have to go in and see other people present.

WEDENSDAY - Had documentary class and began to watch bits and pieces of "Waltz with Bashir". Unfortunately we we're shown the ending of the film too which is disappointing to me because I really liked where the film was heading from what we we're shown.

THURSDAY - Bought some more comic books and had lunch with some friends. Everyone should go try "Sushi Burger" on Exhibition Street in the city. Best part is that the restaurant is actually run by Japanese people. Apologies for the lack of food porn photos. Also, "Modern Family" returned to the airwaves! Congratulations to the show also for picking up quite a few Emmy wins too.

FRIDAY - Was meant to have seen "Hobo With A Shotgun" at the Nova but found out the film was starting a lot later than we had anticipated (10:50PM) so my friend and I decided to just skip it and shoot the shit in the city. Also had a Subway roll for the second time ever in my life. You read right. And "Community" came back for its third season too! Quote of the episode goes to Troy: "You are the opposite of Batman!"

This blog needs more photos, am I right? I shall endevour to try and do more of this (I feel like this is something that I've said way too many times in the past).

WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING

Also, I just woke up from a nap and feel too tired to continue writing about films I've seen this week because what usually happens is I try to put a lot of thought behind what I write and that takes up brainpower that I don't have right now. Just know that I saw "A Fistful of Dollars" and "For A Few Dollars More", two exceptionally fantastic Westerns starring Clint Eastwood and directed by Sergio Leone - one of the masters of the genre.

Drop everything you're doing and watch this trailer! A four minute trailer was released this week for David Fincher's adaptation of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and it is magnificent. Those Fincher visuals and that atmospheric Reznor score look set to do a whole number on audiences once again.

Clint Eastwood's, "J. Edgar" biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts and Judi Dench, got its first trailer this week and it doesn't disappoint. The trailer just sizzles with awards season prospects. Will DiCaprio finally get that Academy Award that's eluded him for so long?

And one of my favourite films of the year, "Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey" finally gets an official full-length trailer. I'd emplore everyone to go see this documentary once it finds distribution in Australia. Such a heartwarming and inspiring film.
