    • All from http://www.ubu.com - always a pile of good stuff over here for when you run out of DVDs...

      Tripple bill (in order)

      1. Sidney Peterson - The Petrified Dog (1948) - saw this projected a few weeks back and was rocked - Pierre Schaeffer OST - I wondered at the time why it was so out-there for 1948

      2. Robert Nelson - Oh Dem Watermelons (1965) - not seen this for ages - quality song done as a "pop" promo..!

      3. Jean Beaudin - Vertige (1969) - heed wobbler of an OST with some 60s flair in style and dancin..!

        How good/thought-provoking/scary is this...
        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          Loser Buscemi spends lots of time moping around in a small-town dive bar and interacts with other local losers. Great cast (including lesser-spotted big-faced Baldwin - Daniel, and Cassavettes and Wes Anderson regular Seymour Cassel) and what a vibe! Love stuff like this.
          Great film, I would also recommend 'Palookaville' from 1995.

          • 'Bored to Death' the new HBO series (well it's three series old now but I wasn't aware of it in the UK). It's not quite as smart and funny as it thinks it is but Ted Danson is brilliant in it. Definitely worth a watch.



            Unlike 'Greenberg' which is rubbish.

                The three characters are pretty good, and it seems to be heading for a series finish in a Swedish commune if Georg has his way through staff fines/can collecting.
                Dunno how we missed this, been watching it on the iplalyer.
                The stroke guy being my fav moment so far.
                The supervisor reminds me of mine at work-a right little hitler!

                Other than that, nothing really on tele, although I did watch pt1 of the Queen prog on BBC the night before last and then flicked over to watch the last 20mins of pt2. Brought up listening to them and remember when he died, sad seeing him in hi last days.

                • Watched Gran Torino the other day (I think after watching the 'spooks' scene linked in this thread?) - was expecting ultra nihilistic psychopathic old timer laughs but instead got weak Karate Kid remake with a pinch of Selfish Giant

                    I thought 'Nightshift' was quite an addictive 12 episodes , odd dark humour. There are two more series, (Bjork has a cameo in the next one) and a movie, all available on DVD. The guy who plays Georg, Jon Gnarr is now Mayor of Reykjavik (and apparently only 43, looked about 50 in the series and that was 2007).

                      Watched the first epeisode yesterday. It's not bad and Danson is indeed great, as he is in the HBo drama 'Damages'(more or less playing the same character). Like my wife asked 'Has he ever been poor in a movie?'.

                        Yes, in Loch Ness

                        He wasn't much cop as Gulliver either, but then Jack Black has just taken that role to a new low. I got it out for my son and managed about three minutes of Black gurning and doing crazy rockstar stuff in the shower before I fled the room.

                          I enjoyed this. Apparently there are 2 more series 'Day Shift' and 'Prison Shift'. Hopefully BBC4 will show them at some point

                          • Probably old news to many but I've been enjoying a programme called Getting On which is about nurses on a geriatic ward. I think it was jointly written by Jo Brand and the other main actors and the fact that she used to be a nurse really shines through I think. It's definitely a post-Office comedy in the way it's so low-key with big awkward pauses and often very dark but it also has surprising moments of tenderness mixed among all the callousness. I watched it on youtube - think there were three episodes in the first series and six in the second and I believe that they are pretty much all on there.

                                I'm with Babycart on this one (there's a first time for everything!) - has he ever been in a good film?

                                Three Men and a Baby and Made in America are the first films that I thought of with him in and they're both a bit knickers.
