    Please tell me more about this trilogy. Are these films connected by stories or just actors?

    Good Morning (1960, Yasujiro Ozu) - 6/10 - Weakest Ozu I've seen to date, but still a very likable film.

    Taxidermia (2006, Gyorgy Palfi) - 2.5/10 - Disgusting and deeply unlikable "LOL SHOCK VALUE" film, plus I completely failed to "get" the humour in it. Not a complete dud since it is, in fact, quite well made.

    Nanami and the Inferno of First Love (1968, Susumu Hani) - 8.5/10 - Whoa.

    They're connected through the themes, events, emotions etc...

    It's called "The Death Trilogy". The films are only loosely connected by the theme of death, and characterised by being totally slow-moving dramas filled with long-takes (they're heavily inspired by the movies of Béla Tarr)

    Gerry (2002) - Based on some true story I'm not familar with, Matt Damon and Casey Affleck get lost in a desert without food or water and try to find their way to safety.

    Elephant (2003) - Based on the Columbine massacre, an ordinary day in a high school is horribly interrupted by two friends who decide to do a school shooting.

    Last Days (2005) - Based loosely on the final days and suicide of Kurt Cobain, starring the guy from Boardwalk Empire. Underrated due to rabid Nirvana fans who found the whole thing distateful.

    All three films are very much an acquired taste, to be honest

    Watched;

    Everybody's Fine with Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell & Robert DeNiro. Gotta admit I teared up a bit, it hit pretty close to home. Not exactly heartwarming but I'm glad I watched it - 7.5/10

    Cedar Rapids - Killed some time. 5/10

    Weird. I thought Everyone's Fine had about as much flavor as a piece of stale communion bread, while I consider Cedar Rapids to be a bit of a seriously slept-on, Capra-esque gem. Shit, Cedar Rapids is alone worth the price of admission just to see Senator Clay Davis do his best Omar Little impression.


    Recently Played (out of ten):
    Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)- 9.5
    Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4)- 8
    Shovel Knight (Wii U
    )- 9
    The Last Of Us: Remastered (PS4)- 10
    Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS)- 8.5

    Ha! I had a feeling writing that that you were going to say pretty much that! Like I said, Everybody's Fine hit pretty close to home for me, so that's probably why. Cedar Rapids fell victim to my expectation of what I was going to get - I thought it was going to be more along the lines of The Goods. Not that I didn't like it, it just didn't blow my skirt up

    I have still not watched this movie. I have heard how it is the awesomest of the awesome, but honestly the movie never interested me. My wife has a copy at the house, so I have had access to it for at least 5 years now, but just never felt the urge that I HAD to watch this movie... I'd rather re-watch Shawshank if I had the choice... Which I always do

    WATCH THIS MOVIE!!! It is a great movie. I didn't think I would like it but once I actually watched it, I loved it.





    Shawshank Redemtion is another great though, I can also watch it over and over.
