This is bad:
Little Britain USA. Ohmygod, it's not even funny. Words can't even describe... Has anyone else had the displeasure of having to sit through this? Watching it is like being insulted.
It's the TV show I would use to torture my worst enemy with. It is so bad it makes me want to put the Little Britain DVD I have on eBay.
Actually, I'm embarrassed to have admitted that I own a Little Britain DVD. Bad.
This is good:
Californication. HMV are having a sale and it was only £20, marked down from £35 so I thought why not, given that I had heard so much about it.
I like it because it makes me fall in love with LA. Is there anyone reading this in LA? Cali... tries a little too hard to be like the street-cred version of Curb Your Enthusiasm - which nothing will ever come close to - but it's good.
I love Bill's 16 year old daughter who's just a nasty little vixen. It's good.
This is fucking excellent:
Gomorra. Ohmygod. I was totally blown away which is nearly an inappropriate thing to say.
Fuck. Okay, I am a gangster movie fan so I'm already halfway won over. It's about the mafia in Naples who're basically all just violent, poor and a bit fucking dum. But it's real, it's like watching real life.
Mark these words: it will be nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film at the 2009 Oscars.
It is bleak and empty and there is no redemption for anyone in the film and it is just astonishing.
I have two little bits for you. First is the brilliant theme tune from Massive Attack. I have been trying to find it to download but can't. Listen to it on YouTube.
Secondly, yes I admit. A nasty little Italian bitch with a bad attitude, in his underwear and firing a stolen automatic weapon kinda makes me a slightly excited.
I have to say that I loved Gomorra but. But! I have slightly off-key taste.
So those are my recommendations. Got any others? Movies, music and/or book suggestions will be grateful received and followed up...
