Every time I put my posters up they just fall down... I blame those weird hot days that Melbourne had recently. Ya know, those really humid and muggy days this past week? Ruins everything...
Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah, here are some purchases that I made this week. JB Hi-Fi is an evil money-sucking corporation that knows how to get into mind and to my wallet... How does one say "no" to their ridiculous good sales?!
I didn't watch any films this week but I did manage to catch up with Season 4 of "Mad Men", just in time for the fifth season which is set to premiere next week! Yes, I have been VERY slow to catch up with the show...
TIDBITS OF FILM NEWS
Hey Tim Burton fans, here's the trailer for his newest feature, "Dark Shadows". Honestly, I don't know much about the film other than the fact that it's a bit of a passion project for both Burton and Johnny Depp (who stars in the film no less) and that it's an adaptation of a soap opera back in the day. The trailer certainly looks like a Tim Burton film but the vibe of it doesn't. Maybe it's cause they're using a predominately 70s soundtrack...
And here's a Japanese trailer for "The Avengers". It comes action-packed with plenty of new footage and as you'd expect, it's cut in a way that makes it seem like a film that was made FOR Japan. Makes sense, right? Reasons to love this trailer: Japanese narrator, the fact that it looks like what you'd expect to read in a comic book, OMFG THE S.H.I.E.L.D HELICARRIER! :D
Oh and Ridley Scott's, "Prometheus" has a new trailer. Excuse me while I go change my pants. Also, I legit thought Tom Hardy was in this trailer to which I thought to myself, "HOLD ON WHEN THE HELL DID TOM HARDY SIGN ON FOR THIS FILM AND HOW DOES HE HAVE THE TIME TO FILM THIS AND FILM THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?!" only to find out that it wasn't Tom Hardy but a guy called Logan Marshall Green (and then I remembered him as the guy who played Ryan's brother in "The O.C.").
So that's it this week. This blog post title was brought to you by Portishead. Enjoy the track below. Or not. Your choice. See you guys next week then.
