The Bicentennial Production Design - Can we just give a standing ovation to the 1976 Academy for giving the award to a contemporary movie? They had a Western, a period drama about the theatre...

Ah, good ol' fashion dark satirical comedy. Hold on one moment while I pause to take all of it in with one deeeeep breaaaath. Ah, feels just like home. Now if only I could replace Steve Carrell with some obscure British comedian and replace Keira Knightley with a cardboard cutout of Keira Knightley. I kid I kid, I do often find myself feeling as if I'm among the few who spend more time defending Knightley than enjoying her movies. Though of course I don't entirely put that on her. After all, who would have known that Domino wouldn't turn out to be HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE FLASHY LIGHTS!!!!!!!
Sorry about that, I've recently found out that there are some unwanted side effects to watching two Tony Scott films back to back. Back on subject, let's talk about the film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (or SaFftEotW for short...er...ish). It looks pretty good and I find the trailer contains just the right blend of charm, realism, and satire absurdity. So I think it's safe to say that I'm looking forward too it.
Now that's enough of that.
