Stop! Trailer time! It’s The Raid. I actually know nothing about this, so I’m watching this cold.
Woah! Holy shit! And oh ho, don’t trust us with foreign-language, eh? Still. Fuck me. I’m going to watch that again. You don’t have to. That looks ridiculously great. Oh, endorsement from Nuts. Pah. Isn’t Barry Norman doing their cinema reviews these days, anyway?
Link time! Could this oral history of Friends be any meatier? No, it could not. Enjoy.
And here’s the (very strong, my friends) week in Mostly Film:
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, a personal take on a great film
Swallows and Amazons Forever, on the new musical version with songs by Neil Hannon
A Glimpse of Striped Stocking, Dark Shadows set in the line of sexy witches through the ages
A Study in Scarlett, viewing Gone With the Wind through the prism of Scarlett’s frocks
Join us next week for part two of A Study in Scarlett, NOISE, pop pickings and a genuine exclusive from the director of a new release.
