So the Oscars were… the oscars. I know I shouldn’t give a shit but I do. I’m a sucker for “best of whatever” and “top 10 of what not”. So here’s my thing, the King’s speech is a really good film. I repeat, a really good film. But I’ve seen it before many, many times. Somebody with some kind of impediment (usually inner city kids) has to accomplish something. Teacher who is ostracized by society for their wacky methods (usually involving dance). These two hate each other out of the gate but eventually become best friends (inner city dance competition). It’s a good formula not knocking it… kind of. But the point is I’ve seen it before. There’s nothing quite like social network or inception, and I think uniqueness should be seriously taken into consideration. My other thing, I think How to train your dragon is a superior film to toy story 3. No disrespect to pixar, incredibles and wall-e are 2 of the best films I’ve ever seen. But dreamworks fuckin brought it for the first time and pixar still beat’em. Sorry boys. You can go on my twitter feed to check out my rude ass commentary.
In TV news I fell madly in love with parks and recreations this week. Like watch 2 seasons in 3 days love. I hope it’s contagious. Here’s a Ron Swanson clip THE PYRAMID OF GREATNESS
And as usual your music of the week. Something swanky for ya.
