TSP2016: Hail, Caesar

Oh, CGI. Boo.

So colour corrected.

Hail, Caesar. Ethan Coen. 2016.

Hm… on the one hand, this film is very much like if Mel Brooks wanted to make a Wes Anderson movie. On the other hand, there are fun scenes like the Gene Kelly sailor scene. On the fourth hand, there’s the horrible CGI-looking (even if it might not have been) version of the Busby Berkeley scene.

So… not firing on all cylinders, but have any Coen film ever done that? Very, very good-natured, though. It’s like almost very good.

TSP1986: Zastrozzi: A Romance

I’m apparently part of the Tilda Swinton Underground now, where we swap rare, unavailable Tilda Swinton TV series and shorts.

Or something. In any case, I got a copy of this 1986 British TV series from a kind reader. It’s rather good. Bits of it are brilliant. And some bits, er, aren’t. Have a peek here.

The Tilda Swinton Checklist

After a pretty random decision to see all films Tilda Swinton had appeared in, and a basic run-through and then a mopping-up weekend, I’ve basically seen all the Swinton films that are kinda available.  (In some form or other.)

This post is a place-holder article I’ll just be editing to keep track of what films I still have to seek out.  Because it makes more sense to do that on a blog than in a text file.
