    Taika Waititi's Wellington Paranormal

    I liked Minogue comparing himself and O’Leary to Mulder and Scully 'she’s the smart analytical one and I’ve got brown hair.’

    Finished this up last night and really enjoyed it, the last two episodes were particularly good. The two leads were great and Sergant Maka was hilarious. I hope we get more of it.

    The Baking Thread

    My first crack at no-knead bread. For something that required such little effort it came out all right - a little dense and with a slightly yeast-y taste. But otherwise I was quite pleased.

    Ha - I retract that. We're flying now, killing them down both wings and getting lots of space in the box. Come on the arsenal. 2-2

    A movie watchers blog

    Days Of Being Wild https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101258/ A man tries to find out who his real mother is after the woman who raised him tells him the truth. (^ This is from IMDB and is so far from the real story of the film it's almost funny) Set in 60's Hong Kong this film follows a young guy and his colourful love-life. He has relationships with several women and the film follows these encounters and how the women get on when they end. At the same time there's a subplot about his search for his birth mother. This was recommended in this thread after I watched Chungking Express a couple of weeks ago. You can see straight away that this is the work of the same director - again it's kind of plotless and instead the focus is on atmosphere and sentiment. It's a very romantic film with a lot of longing glances, conversations and declarations of love. And I think it's quite realistic in the way it depicts relationships sometimes just fading away. The acting is excellent with Leslie Cheung being particularly good. It looks fantastic with lots of nighttime shots and scenes in the rain all adding to the romantic and melancholic atmosphere. It takes a bit of a mad swerve in the last few minutes with gun-fights and stabbings that seem out of place in such a romantic film. Similar to the left-turn In The Mood For Love takes I suppose. Another fantastic Wong Kar-wai film. 4/5

    Is this going to be a 39th match? There's no way they'd bring a classico to America surely.

    Yeah, they stick the away fans in the worst seats in the place now. Right up in the Gods.

    Yeah, for Kindle. The pricing must be screwed up. I definitely paid less than that for it on kindle when I bought it

    Those short kickouts to Guendouzi are absolutely poison.

    Who should be picking up Walker when he's overlapping? Maitland N? He's gone down the line twice now with no-one near him.
