The Pensieve #1

~ It was a good week - I watched a lot of classics and I finally saw Cosmopolis. If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? 

~ How do you decide whether to watch a trailer or not to watch it? To me, this is always a really hard decision. Watching a trailer can trigger a hype or it can destroy it. When the trailer is great, you can be disappointed, and when it's bad you might not see a good movie because of it. At the time I don't watch many new trailers.

~ I also have some new music for you again, which I discovered this week: Bonaparte and my favourite German band Kraftklub, who have made an unofficial album when they were unknown, which I didn't know. You can listen to one of the songs by clicking on the name of the band. And of course Mecca by K'Naan from the Cosmopolis soundtrack. 

~ I'm not sure if I write too many reviews? And if I don't comment enough on other people's blogs. If you have this impression please don't be made because I really don't have much time. Plus I like writing reviews currently.

~ This week I saw a couple of the films I said I wanted to see in the Movie Confessions Blogathon, and I only really liked one of them. Anyhow, it's good I saw them. 

~ Thanks to everyone who warned me from seeing the new Robin Hood - I did it anyhow and it was boring as hell.

~ Some interesting posts:
  • SDG from U, Me and Films celebrates Indian Independence Day with five films that relate to the topic. 
  • Alex from And so it begins... shares some of Brad Pitt's best performances. I should really see Se7en soon.
  • Dan from Public Transportation Snob lists his 5 most anticipated films of the rest of 2012.

~ I shifted the "You Might Also Like" widget from LinkWithin to Outbrain because I didn't like many of the recommendations. The new one is much smarter.

Have a nice Sunday! - And in case my grandmother reads this, I wish you a happy birthday here too Oma!


  1. Hi Mette! Thanks for the link! I'm glad to hear you're catching up on some of your films to see from the Movie Confessions post, even if you're not liking them all.

    1. You're welcome.
      well, it's not that I disliked any of the movies yet, but most of them I rated around 7.

  2. Thanks so much for the link! And, yes, how brave you are for sitting through Robin Hood. A total bore indeed.

    1. Yup, you're welcome. I just had to watch Robin Hood because I had chosen it as one of my Cate Blanchett Essentials. I wish I had chosen another movie.

  3. How the hell did I miss this ? Sorry and Thanks for Link Mette ! Always appreciated. :)

  4. Outbrain is great. I've tried a couple others, but I've found it gives the best recommendations and also gives me the most clicks.

    1. I noticed it on your site and that the recommendations are really good, that's why I tried it out.


Let the discussion begin!
