What are bacon crisps?

Hm... I wonder that too to be honest. What exactly they are. They seem extremely artificial. It's some sort of puffed-up snack. Like cheez doodles but with bacon flavour and more noisy. It's the most noisy snack we have here in Sweden imo.

What, louder than Extreme Räkor Doritos??

Never heard of those so I can't tell. Tbh I'm not an expert in loud snacks, trying to stay as far away from them a possible.

Before Midnight (2013)


What a lovely review! It reminds me of that I really, really need to write my own. I too think this series is getting better and better, as the characters mature and more layers are added.
This should defnitely not be the end of it. As I see it they're only halfway through. The final part will be when they're in the Amour range of age.

The Counselor (Ridley Scott, 2013)

My four word review describing what the film really needed would be  "More Brad Pitt, less Cameron Diaz"

I think I liked about 60% of this movie.  There really needed to be some serious editing of the script and the film in my opinion.   There are some scenes that should've been cut completely, and some of the dialogue was just horrendous and unfortunately, they gave a lot of it to Diaz, who just can't handle it.  She is supposed to be this kingpin femme fatale, and she just can't deliver.  I felt like McCarthy was trying to make some conversations like the ending of No Country for Old Men, full of abstract meaning, and it just fell flat for me.

I did like the scenes between Brad Pitt and Fassbender, they played really well off each other, and the main storyline is good, I just wish someone else would've been cast instead of Diaz and that the script would've been a bit tighter with less jumping from scene to scene (some of which were unnecessary).
