    6 Days to Air: The Making of South Park 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Jul, 2015

    A lovely little documentary that celebrates the foul mouthed and controversial escapades of Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Often hilarious and never self congratulatory, 6 Days to Air is a short, fly-on-the-wall piece about the creation of a new season.

    Christian Bale has come a long way in 7 years. From…

    Thank jeebus for Letterboxd. For years I've been doing the "Bond Marathon" before the latest 007 adventure. For years I thought I was the only sad fucker who endured all twenty something films in preparation for the next slice of kiss kiss, bang bang. There's a few that have more or less concluded this little ritual, but seeing as Skyfall ain't out until 26th October I thought I'd slowly work my way through them, starting now.
