Movies I'm Looking Forward To

I want to make this a regular occurance. Going onto youtube and picking out non-major/obviously well know movies that have had trailers released and saying which ones i like the look of. I know i stopped blogging about film because i was writing the same thing over and over again, but hey, its what i know about and, sometimes, what i like to write about.


Ok so kicking us of is Jon Favreau's Chef, he directs, lead performs, and writes what looks to be a fantastic movie. The cast looks great, Favreau, Downy Jr, Vergara, Hoffman, and Scar Jo. Love it. The movie looks like it'll be funny, and a good movie. I mean this'll be the best food movie since Ratatouille, maybe? Well we'll find out but I'm in.

Wish I Was Here

Speaking of movies written, directed and lead starred by all the same one guy who is one of my faves in the entertainment business, its Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here. Now I was one of the many, many people to fund this on kickstarter, so to actually see what i decided to minimally fund turned out to be, will be good. The trailer looks really good, a mix of heartwarming, comedy and scifi? Im in.

Begin Again

I like music. I like movies. I like movies that are about music. Begin Again looks to be just that. Glancing at the cast in the trailer we've got Mark "The Hulk" Ruffalo, Kiera Knightly, and Maroon 5's lead singer, Adam Levine, Hailee Steinfeld and James Cordon. That last one isn't necessarily a good thing, but the movie looks really good.


Already mentioned Scar Jo in Chef, but here she is leading this very cool looking thriller. The concept and feel of the movie seems very traditional Jason Statham/Liam Neeson action/thriller type movie, just with the amazingly talented (and gorgeous Scarlett Johansson taking the reins). Well Im in.

No God No Master

This one is my could go either way pick of the month. On one hand i love period movies like this, on the other I don't know any of the actors in this film. That is always a big put off for me, but we'll see.

What do you think? Any of these look good to you? Leave me a comment, share, reblog, retweet, like...etc

Noel. Out.

Dave Thomas, The Founder Of Wendy's.

Do you want to play a game? 


Here are the rules:

During a conversation, Person A tries to get Person B to say “Who?”. When Person B has said “Who?” Person A then says Dave Thomas, The Founder Of Wendy’s, and gets a point.

The aim of the game is to get the most points over a period of 12 months. (Normally played from January 1st to December 31st.

If Person B can say “Who, Dave Thomas, The Founder Of Wendy’s?” then person B gets the point. This is implying an honour system from Person A to admit that they were trying to get them, and not fake something they wanted to say. In the event of an argument over a winner, a third party , who knows the game, must settle the score. Their say is final.

Also points are invalid if Person B does not know about the game. Only people who know about the game can take part. Reading this document clarifies you to take part in the game.

The winner after 12 months gets bragging rights and a annual point.
Play until not friends anymore, winner gains more bragging rights.

The word who is vital. “Go on then, tell me” does not count, there must be the word WHO.

Acceptable Who alternatives?
Who’s that?
Who then?
Then who?
Tell me who?
Who is it?

Not accepted:
Go on then
Give it to me
Tell me the answer

Thanks to Sal and Q for bringing this game into the public eye/ear:

Nightvale Fan-Fic Reading: Another Story About You

So i really like the podcast Welcome To Nightvale. Recently i found that people write their own little bits that would sound not out of place on the podcast. Now whenever i read them, i always try it in my "actor, RP voice" and finally i've decided to record one, with my Rock Band microphone and Audacity. Now i don't know the copyright rules and what-not so i'm going to reference everyone fairly at the end of this post, as the music i used isn't mine and obviously i didn't originally write what i have read, so any complaints from anyone and i'll gladly remove/delete and whatever. (I've already done that for a Warcraft short story i wrote, see my other posts), so here we go, its my favorite one that i've read that i've decided to record and here it is(also apologies for my awful impression of Cecil at the end):
