I have seen neither of this week's two featured films. But I think that, if we work as a team, we might just both learn something.
To think that these two guys will share the same screen for the second time this year. How does one frame manage to cram in that much masculinity? Even in IMAX.
I wrote this on my phone while on the tube today. Lest it be forgotten, the guy who got on at Green Park and sat next to me, reading the Financial Times so expansively as to have his right hand more or less directly in front of my face throughout his entire journey, is a dick.
I'm going to say "paradigm" in this. Had to look it up first, obviously. "A set of forms all of which contain a particular element, especially the set of all inflected forms based on a single stem or theme." Come to think of it, I hope I've used it right, now I've drawn attention to it.
Someone at ITV's had a Eureka moment. "I've got it! We must start showing great films! But then we must show their increasingly poor sequels throughout the same week so that people's memory of the original is steadily soured! Start with a good idea then pump enough cheap, tacky shit into it that it becomes an artless, unrelenting cash-cow! For is that not the ITV way?"
