“Papers For Characters” by atipo

This project of ultra-minimalist movie poster by the Spanish design firm atipo is breathtaking. The “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” poster wrenched at my heart! So beautiful simple.

"7. If you are doing a play or a film, you have to have a secret way in if you are directing it. Sometimes it’s big things. American Beauty, for me, was about my adolescence. Road to Perdition was about my childhood. Skyfall was about middle-age and mortality. Sometimes it’s small things. Maybe it’s just a simple idea. What if we do the whole thing in the nightclub, for example. But it’s not enough just to admire a script, you have to have a way in that is yours, and yours alone."

"Hey, I just saw…"

(Side note - I think I am going to start posting about movies, TV shows, youtube videos, interviews or whatever that “I just saw” that I found either interesting, inspiring, or overall compelling that I think you, the reader, might enjoy as well.
I can also tie it in to a “I just heard…” which will be radio shows or music that fall in the same categories of cool shit to check out. With that said….)

Hey! I just saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty yesterday and I absolutely loved it. For those who read the book its nothing like the book but does pay a sweet, kind, homage to the story line.

The film’s cinematography was epic. Every frame could stand on it’s own as a beautiful photography.

See it soon! I think it’s a great way to start the new year.

So there you have it! 103 movies this year. I wanted to see more but hopefully next year I’ll hit 150 plus!

But really tho…

So don’t get me wrong “Bridesmaids” was a good comedy for women and all but come on people! How could we forget Mean Girls, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and Clueless. All in which were written by women with strong female characters waaaaaaay before Bridesmaid. All those movies were funny as hell (if not funnier then Bridesmaids - in my personal opinion)
Not to mention Clueless was written AND directed by a women… just saying.

The Fifth Estate

I just saw it and I have to say I have a new definition of “truth” and what should be “public knowledge.”

I of course feel smarter after watching that movie, but that’s because I’ve only been having deep intelligent conversation with myself it’s not really doing anyone any good.

But I have to say; not only am I pretty but I think I make a lot of good points.

Such Awe. Such Wonder.

Saw the worst movie of 2013

I thought it was Pain & Gain, THEN I thought it was Thanks for Sharing but now I know better. The worst movie of 2013 is Touchy Feely by Seattle’s own Lynn Shelton.

I would write a review it but there was no movie. So no review.
