AMC and Matthew Weiner finally make a deal so that they can keep making Mad Men together

It seems that a lot of the stuff that Weiner was against - cutting two members of the cast per year (which would leave us with, what, Don and Peggy just talking to each other every episode by season 7?) and cutting the running time of the episodes - have been compromised on, which is fine by me if it means that the show can keep going with its chief architect in place. Shame that it won't be until March before new episodes air, but at least there will finally be new episodes.

LCD Soundsystem's final ever show at Madison Square Gardens was recorded for Pitchfork and is available on YouTube. All three hours and forty minutes of it. They definitely went out in style.

Why do Amazon all reviews on items that haven't been released yet, and won't be for a number of months?

The Star Wars and Lord of the Rings Blu-Ray releases have several one star reviews each because they are either not the original theatrical versions (Star Wars) or the films are split over two disks (LotR).

F****** trolls.
monkeyman
Wait. Lotr films are split over discs? I mean. Each film is on a separate disc right? And not that each film is spread over 2 discs?
Raven
Each film is split over two disks.
Rua
I'm no Troll. But that's stupid.
Raven
The comments on Amazon aren't quite as well framed as yours, Rua!

I'm guessing that they have a good reason for doing it and - let's face it - the extended version of Return of the King is nearly four hours long, it's quite likely you're going to stop it at some point anyway . . .

Little White Lies are running a competition to guess all 21 Japanese films featured in this picture. I can get ones below, but wondered if anyone else knew what the rest were:

My Neighbour Totoro
Spirited Away
Perfect Blue
Tokyo Story (Possibly Late Spring, but I'm pretty sure it's an Ozu)
Akira
Ikuri
Ringu
Battle Royale
House
Seven Samurai
Zatoichi
Yojimbo(?)
Audition
Princess Mononoke
Astroboy
NiteFall
Ghost In The Shell
I think Tampopo is there as well, but it's been a while since I last saw it, so I can't be sure.

I have the box set and love it. Though I can see why a lot of people dismiss it as a waste of time. I have the entire manga collection as well and that's even better. Really should give that a read again at some point.

McCabe and Mrs Miller is hugely overated. It hasn't dated very well (lots of cheesy 70s songs), Altman talky nonsense and is awful dreary in parts. Some interesting choices like Ulzana's Raid (which my dad loves). Unforgiven and the Wild Bunch should be in the top 10.

Also - no True Grit (Coen's version)? It's fucking superb.
maian
I really, really like McCabe and Mrs Miller, but there's no way that it deserves to be Number 1. (And Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid needs to be way, way down.) Apart from the order, that list has lots of really interesting choices.

Repetitive or not, I could watch Christoph Waltz chew scenery and play the Ike Turner charming sociopath all damn day. Christoph’s sorry, baby, he only beat that elephant’s ass so bad ’cause he loves you so much. Sometimes he just gets so scared.

QUOTE
The point is, there is gratuitous elephant porn. Personally, I could watch elephants squirt liquid and pick things up with their trunks all day (no homo?). Curiously, the elephant never seems to drink water, as you might guess from the title, only whiskey and lemonade. Other times, Rosie the elephant breaks loose and runs through the town until they find her eating cabbage from an Italian stereotype’s fruit stand. “EH, WHAT’S A MATTA FOR YOU! WHO-A GONNA PAY-A FOR-A GUISEPPE’S A-CABBAGE? MAMA, SHE NO MAKE-A THE PIZZA PIE WITHOUT-A THE FRESH A-CABBAGE!” And then everyone laughs and feeds the elephant more whiskey, because everyone loves a mischievous elephant and who cares about that dumb old wop’s fruit anyway? Seriously, if someone made a movie called “ANIMALS STEAL FRUIT FROM ANGRY ITALIAN IMMIGRANTS”, I would watch it for 10 straight hours.


Ha!

Glee leaving E4/C4 - out bid by a stupidly high Sky offer.

Whilst I don't watch the show, I lament the loss of another popular program from terrestrial TV (Glee following in the wake of 24 and Lost) when so few get shown there now in the first place.

Is it wrong that I'm kind of happy about that purely because it means I don't have to put up with the adverts any more? laugh.gif
