Everybody’s Chattin’ + Question of the Week: Favorite French Film(s)

EverybodysChattin

Glad it’s Thursday already, ya gotta love a short work week 🙂 Well it’s kinda an uneventful week in terms of movie screening. There’s the Bradley Cooper rom-com ALOHA which I’m really not interested in, and I also have zero interest in seeing San Andreas. But I am excited to see SPY next week. I’m not really a fan of Melissa McCarthy but the trailer is a hoot! Plus, there Jason Staham AND Jude Law? I’m SO there.

Ok, now let’s get to those linky dinky…

Mark and Tom have been hosting their Decades Blogathon series on their respective blogs. The reviews have been excellent, check ’em out if you haven’t already.

Jordan reviewed Gaspar Noé‘s fantasy drama from 2009, Enter the Void. He apparently’s been causing quite a stir with his latest film Love [or should it be called lust??]

Josh reviewed Tomorrowland, and he’s one of the few who actually loved the movie

Stu reviewed a John Hughes’ classic The Breakfast Club

Andrew posted one of his 4-Ways Best Picture Bloggers Roundtable, this time focusing films from 2004

Margaret highlights the awesome soundtrack of Mad Max: Fury Road

A couple of notable lists: Katy shared a great find of favorite movie travel posters, whilst Nostra continued posting his Top 100 Films in batches, check out which ones made his list from 40-31.


Time for question of the week!

I’ve quickly become a Francophile now thanks to my current crush Stanley Weber ehm… I’ve been watching a ton of French movies, some even without subtitles! [yes I’m THAT obsessed], but seriously, there’s a whole array of French Cinema out there waiting for me to discover. It just so happens I have one French New Wave film on my Blindspot list, so Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless was the perfect pick for May.

Well, in honor of Cannes that just wrapped this past week, I’m curious how you feel about French Cinema and which are some of your favorite French movies. In the spirit of recommendation, the two I just saw recently were Thérèse Desqueyroux, Violette – where Stanley have a supporting role, and Pour Une Femme (For A Woman) which was screened at MSPFF last year. All of the movies are on Netflix and I’d recommend all three. They so happen that all three are female-centric, which is always welcome in my book.
