Also, I watched this (English title: Jitters) on my flight to London and really liked it.  It’s like the Brat Pack on Lithium with a hipster twist.  This is my favorite kind of movie: pensive without hitting you over the head with how smart it is, and so understated that you don’t realize you’ve grown attached to the characters until you realize there are tears in your eyes.  Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.  Fine holiday fun.



Time for a classic…


Quite awhile back I received a DVD from The Karpel Group after I had won the TLA Releasing contest for the release of their DVD Jitters (directed by Baldvin Z). Unfortunately, after starting a new part time job and needing to attend a few events I wasn’t able to put up my review as quickly as I would have preferred. Sorry for the delay, but here it is:

I remember being very excited that I had won this DVD because it seemed like a great film, and I am already a huge fan of TLA Releasing’s catalog. That night I crawled into bed after setting the movie up in my laptop and popped on my V-Moda headphones (a standard protocol for me).

The film’s protagonist, Gabríel (Atli Oskar Fjalarsson), is introduced to us when he is on a study abroad trip to Manchester, England. He and his roommate, Markús (Haraldur Ari Stefánsson) hit it off almost immediately and their relationship is scrutinized by friends when they return to Iceland after the trip. It appears as if both boys are uncertain about their relationship as well, and it’s interesting to see the deductions they both make.

However, Jitters is not merely just a story of confused adolescents coming to terms with their sexualities. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the many different thoughts and storylines covered in this film. For instance, two of Gabríel’s friends, Stella (Hreindís Ylva Garðarsdóttir) and Gréta (Birna Rún Eiríksdóttir) were perfect in their roles.

Actually, I was really taken aback by the acting ability of the entire cast. Generally gay-themed films are much more comedic and even if they are well done sometimes come across as amateurish, but that was not the case with Jitters. For instance, there were a few times where both Birna Rún Eiríksdóttir and Hreindís Ylva Garðarsdóttir stole the show. And on that thought… Lilja Guðrún Þorvaldsdóttir, who played Guðbjörg amma, was spot-on as Stella’s worried and paranoid grandmother. She delivered quite a heartbreaking performance which I’m sure I will never forget.

Jitters is a story of love, friendship, loss, misunderstanding, and above all growing up. I highly recommend you see it. Some parts did seem to drag on a little, but overall I really enjoyed this film and spent a good deal of time thinking about it afterwards.

Jitters is available on DVD or streaming video from TLA Video.

I saw (and loved) this Icelandic coming-of-age film on an Icelandair flight from Reykjavik to London. As described on the official site: “Gabriel is sixteen, gay and confused. Along with few of his closest friends, he is trying to figure out who he is and where he stands in an ever changing and complicated world.”

And Cause the light is back. Ü thanks for accompanying me Cath & Cj. No pic with Cj busy xa. Hehe Till next time. :-)

The article is Insider so I’ll just post it here.This is a bit of a wild-card pick, given that Perriman is a little raw as a prospect, and he wasn’t selected until the No. 26 overall pick. But Perriman is a high-ceiling player who landed in an ideal spot in terms of scheme fit and a roster on which he will have a chance to produce right away.The Ravens re-signed RB Justin Forsett and return all five starters along an offensive line that paved the way for the league’s fourth-ranked rushing attack the past season. This should create plenty of one-on-one, big-play opportunities for Perriman down the field off play-action, where he has the size and speed to be a difference-maker.While Perriman had his share of drops at UCF, the majority of those passes were in the short to intermediate area, and he was much more efficient tracking vertical throws or winning in contested 50-50 situations. That makes him a great match for QB Joe Flacco, who is one of the best deep-ball throwers in the league. via /r/ravens
