  1. My picks, in alphabetical order: The General The Godfather I The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Lost in Translation North by Northwest Raiders of the Lost Ark The Royal Tenenbaums The Searchers The Shining There Will Be Blood
  2. Interesting conversation between Fuller and Alex Pappademas of Grantland:
  3. There's a great conversation about the third season's opening episode on the new Vulture TV podcast. It's also been interesting to see Hannibal become a larger part of the cultural conversation in the last week or two, though mostly in relation to Games of Thrones and the question of how much is too much in a show (a topic they discuss in the Vulture episode). James Poniewozik had some interesting thoughts on that question at Time.

    Glenn Heath Jr. on Blackhat at To Be (Cont'd): "The idea of mutuality, facing one’s opponent head-on as opposed to firing shots from behind the digital glow of a computer screen, becomes the film’s core argument."
  5. I'm definitely interested, though I've been doing more editing than writing lately.
  6. Posted my review of The Dance of Reality today at TBC: http://bit.ly/TdF3m7
  7. Up today, the last post in TBC's series on Twin Peaks and Fire Walk with Me.

    Thanks, Christian. Looking back at some of the comments here, I'm thinking I missed something related to Wanda and the reason she does what she does in the end. In any case, I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the movie, but that last act really seemed predictable. I was hoping Pawlikowski would draw out something more substantial about her faith in that scene in the forest, but...nope.

    I haven't been able to do much writing since my daughter was born, but I'm trying to get back into the habit. So here's my stab at a review.
  10. That finale....wow. I think I was literally speechless for the last 10 minutes. Did not see the big character reveal coming. At. All.
  11. The third part in the conversation at To Be (Cont'd).
  12. In the latest interview with Fuller at the A.V. Club, he says, "you need to come to the finale as though you were attending a Gallagher concert. Wear your slickers because the blood is going to flow." Ever since this season's first episode, I've wondered if but given how they've deviated from Harris' books in so many other ways, I have to wonder. I wouldn't be surprised if this was it for him.
  13. If you're not reading Todd VanDerWerff's weekly interviews with Bryan Fuller, you really should be. For someone (like me) who's not familiar with the books (yet), it's interesting to read about some of the departures between the books and the show. Fuller can also be pretty free when talking about the show's eventual direction. In this particular interview, I was interested in what he had to say about Crawford and exactly how much he knows, and when he knew it. I have to say, he fooled me. Also, what Mason does to his sister may just be the plot point that has disturbed me the most in the two season so far, even with all the gruesome crime scenes we've seen.
  14. Part two in TBC's look at Twin Peaks and Fire Walk with Me.
  15. Also, Fuller is pretty confident the show will get a third season.
