I'll have something shortly, Todd. Running, running, running late as usual. :)

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Todd, I have a post too, of a film overlooked in my part of the world. Hope it makes the grade. Many thanks

Yvette, Prashant--thanks, folks. No later (not as late as) me, Yvette...and of course the grade is achieved, Prashant!

A lot of doomed romances in today's round up Todd - fab!

Todd Mason said...

Interesting point...perhaps it's the influence of the end of summer in this hemisphere...or simply that I'm an utterly he[pless romantic. (Perhaps the influence of the romances of various sorts project that John Grant is contributing to can't be discounted...I fear I might've missed the deadline to write up TRANS EUROP EXPRESS for that roundelay)(a film that both will and decidedly won't make a smashing double-feature with the eventual 50 SHADES film).

One thing I really need to do is to attend to getting the final repairs on my home desktop, because the odd flukes of these Apple laptops and "books" are no more charming as they go along (particularly not in re: Blogspot).
