Things start off with the culmination of our Luc Besson Debt to Cinema chain, his long gestating, must see in 3D, comic book adaptation then segue into Christopher Nolan’s larger than life, humanistic war flick (20:30) and my horrible experience watching it. Next Steve tries to lighten the mood with A Ghost Story (46:50), Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Little Hours (49:10). Finally I dipped into the anime again with Food Wars (52:47) and Inuyasha (54:50) + my first impressions of my New Nintendo 3DS XL (57:38).
Inspired by Steve’s pick the week before and doubly so once Ashley decreed we would watch Valerian together, I decided to give Luc Besson another go. Whereas Nikita was a deep cut, Leon is the film that made his career and I finally gave it the view it deserved #IdBuyThatForADollar
Leave it to America to make a proudly Parisian film even more French, this Luc Besson romantic thriller bleeds angst and oozes style. Before the two remakes and equally as many American TV adaptations, this is the breakthrough international piece of cinema which made the EuropaCorp president an action impresario and household name #IdBuyThatForADollar
