Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Bosom Buddies’ opening credits
This is a gloriously incoherent tale of 2 men (1 of whom is Tom Hanks) pretending to be women to get an apartment in a women’s hotel. There are bad wigs and really tight sorts and this ran from 1980 to 1982.

‘Game Of Thrones’ clip
Ramsay Bolton and his stupid accent gets got by useless bint Sansa. Who tied him to the chair? Why didn’t the dogs attack until after Sansa finished her speech? Why didn’t they try and go for her? What happened to the dogs afterwards? The dogs eat him and she watches. Blood flows.

Best Lines:
“You haven’t fed them in 7 days.”

“Sit! Down!”

‘The Endless’ teaser trailer
Two men who escaped a cult return. There are 2 moons and staring and clouds. Interesting.

Best Line:
“Something out here.”

A woman learns her boyfriend is a perv.

‘The Others’ (2001) promo
Not very big on subtlety.

‘Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Café’ (1991) promo

‘Cape Fear’ (1991) promo
No emotional coping.

What is burnt milk ice cream?

A new Jaye Wells book!

Who goes on about imagined slights? Who leaves the fridge open, doesn’t tidy up after himself, makes mess and leaves the cooker dirty? Who won’t apologise? Orders people to wash things by hand yet won’t do anything himself and lies in bed all day in a stinking room? Who makes sexist comments and accuses others of having control of the house? Who makes horrible sexist comments, makes a mess and screams about the dishwasher? The sort of person who occupies a uniquely low place.

What is boutique milk?

I may review ‘What We Do In The Shadows’.

The Majestic Mogok Ruby Suite is lovely.

Who saw ‘Nanny McPhee’ (2005)? Or ‘Amistad’ (1997)? Who saw ‘The Mexican’ (2001)? Or ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ (1999)? Or ‘Beethoven’ (1992)? Or ‘Spy Game’ (2001)? Or ‘Transporter 2’ (2005)? Anyone see ‘Easy Virtue’ (2008)?
