I'm watching the HBO series Breaking Bad -- story about a high school chemestry teacher who gets lung cancer and starts making meth to pay for the treatments. The series lasted 6 seasons, and I'm about half way through season 4.
Anybody who liked the Korean 'Old Boy' may enjoy 'The Vanishing' (Spoorloos) a French/Dutch film 1988. Don't read the synopses as any spoilers will make the film pointless to watch. Messed my head up for a long time. Brilliant.
Unnecessarily drawn out in parts (the confrontation with Smaug, for example) but at almost 3 hours, Peter Jackson sees that you get your money's worth. I still think it should have been done in two parts instead of three.
unfortunately, about every film is predictable.
the teenage girl with the "wrong" boyfriend.
the little kid that acts before thinking it over.
the neighbours that basically 'alert' what's comming ("you can say you paid for that with our money .. o, no, it's just a rumour")
but the entire concept of twelve hours where Crowley 's law (Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law) comes hand in hand with Murphy's ...
might be fun to make a movie of "the morning after", where all those neighbours line up next to each other in the supermarket ... awkward :)
