FILM SPOTTING: September 2010 in Polish cinemas

Even more format changes ;-P Am still using the rating system from last month, but have foregone 0 and -1. Feels like overkill. Am staying with the +0.5 rating though, at least for the moment.

Due South - season two (ep. 9-18)

Should have posted this ages ago :] For continuity’s sake, it’s in same film review format as the other Due South reviews, but I think I’m going to make yet another change of format soon as this one just isn’t working *sigh*
Note: Please refer to this post for more details and links to other [...]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I - the test screening

There was a test screening of the film in Chicago last Saturday. It’s not complete yet (the soundtrack is yet to be finished and some of the special effects are still not done), but reviews have been good. To check some of them out, see here.
I’m much amused by some of the comments - sounds [...]

Why the silence…

I haven’t been this silent on my blog in quite a while and I think the reason for this is that the stuff that is absorbing me the most at the moment is stuff I’m completely not used to blogging about. But maybe I should just go ahead and try…

FILM SPOTTING: August 2010 in Polish cinemas

I’m not sure all my attempts at mixing things up are going that well (I think my film diary format change is actually worse than what I had before ;-P). But I’m doing some further experimentation this month anyway.
So firstly, I’m introducing a “how much I want to see the film” rating:

Very excited!
I’ve been obsessively [...]

Hopefully, this list will be a pleasant contrast to the villain one *grin*
Originally, this was supposed to be a list of characters in the “knightly honour” sort of vein. The trouble was, I could think of only two characters that fitted all the criteria I was looking for, so I dropped the “knightly” part and [...]

Due South: season 1 (ep. 14-22) & season 2 (ep. 1-8)

North Korea, the most evil dictatorship in the world - a film list

Last week marked 60 years since the Korean war (1950-1953) broke out. As Al Jazeera aptly points out, it has largely been forgotten in the West despite the huge destruction and death toll it caused. Around 4mln people died in the three years in which the fighting ensued, around half of them civilians. Apparently, the [...]

Best Nude Scenes

Unlike the villain list, compiling this one did not feel that natural, but I thought it would be amusing to try. I looked at some best nude scene lists before compiling my own and they were almost all booooooring. Seriously, just about the only one I enjoyed was this one.
Mine will be a little different [...]
