Intro for July 26, 2013
Every Tuesday I check iTunes for movie release rentals to download on my iPad for travel viewing. Oftentimes there are films that show up that I’d never even heard of before, even though the actors are recognisable. Like… Love & Honour starring Teresa Palmer and Liam Hemsworth. Did you know about this? So I watched it on my flight. Definitely a plane movie.
You know what else is on iTunes already? Only God Forgives, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and featuring Ryan Gosling. Nicolas Cage said recently in an interview that people should stop underestimating VOD, that it’s more prestigious, or is that less embarrassing, than we think. Coming from Nicolas Cage, that’s pretty funny. You think Refn and Gosling see it the same way?
This open was written in flight from Toronto on Thursday night. I’ve been in Toronto all week to do some work and am heading back to Vancouver for our final day as Vancouver residents. Jacek and I moving to Toronto on Saturday. So it’ll be a lighter, shorter day today as we wrap up our lives here and enjoy our last day at home on the West Coast.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
