(Ramona by Beck... Click Play!)









Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Directed by Edgar Wright (Director of 'Shaun of the Dead')
and Soundtrack Produced by Nigel Godrich
(Famed producer of all Radiohead albums and some of Beck)

Went to see and fell in love with this film over the weekend. Sweet and funny and strange... with comic and video game references galore. I know, sounds like a train wreck to the non-nerd, which I am not (tricky double negative!) but swear it wasn't. Also an amazing soundtrack with original songs by Beck, Broken Social Scene and Nigel himself.

Did you have a nice weekend too?
Was there a good movie involved?

-Small Retraction-
My friend Thomas wrote to me with the following... please forgive me... i have to say this: nigel godrich has not produced all radiohead albums; he has produced all radiohead albums except pablo honey. he has produced all since the bends. i'm sorry. :)' so there you have it. Not all. Thank you my Thomas, LOVE YOU!

I watched, not for the first time, one of my favorite movies this weekend: Sue by Amos Kollek. I'm regularly being mocked about my love for that movie.

I went and saw this film on the weekend too! I really enjoyed it - was very neat, funny and well done! Love that Beck wrote most of the songs for the Sex Bob-ombs!

Gabbi said...

Pinkies, I never heard of 'Sue' before. Will have to find! And I totally agree Kate, isn't that a great name for a fictional band... Hope you had a wonderful weekend girls! ♡

Lady Thirty said...

I had a nice weekend, but there wasn´t any good movies involved. I saw a swedish movie, but it wasn´t good... :(

Sam said...

Oh I'm so pleased to hear that you liked it Gabbi - I've looked at the trailer online and thought it looked so nice! Now I"ll have to go see it! Thank you!

Yes, I saw "Kick Ass" (Loooved it - naughty me!) and "Inception" loved, loved that one too! I think we've at a very good time for movies at the moment!

I heard about this on NPR and it sounded really good......

I had a great weekend, that included a visit to a flea market in Brooklyn, breakfast at a lovely organic place, and catching with some old NY friends!

I cannot wait to see this! They're releasing it here in October I think, which is ridiculous! Looks amazing and I've heard great things about it.

Savvy Gal said...

i so agree with If you want something bad, you have to fight for it.... : )

Gabbi said...

Sam, I have to see 'Kick Ass'! Going to rent it this week for sure... and Mary-Laure, your time in ny sounds like a dream. Wish I was on vacation there now... and yeah Savvy, it's a quote from the film. But I agree too. Wishes for a great Wednesday girls! ♥
