Departures[edit]

Thanks for the review. Just to let you know, I managed to cut about 2k characters from all the reviews and awards, so it is much more balanced. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 10:36, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: You're quite welcome. Looks much better now you've trimmed it! I'll definitely watch it over the weekend!♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:41, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Hope you enjoy it. I loved it, but Curly was somewhat on the fence. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 10:45, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: I watched it immediately! Agreed it's a great film, some parts greater than others though. It joins my User:Dr. Blofeld/Great films list! If you know of any more worth watching feel free to suggest on its talk page.. I have a few ones still left to see though! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:06, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • If I come across any that scream "must share", I'll let you know. Woman in the Dunes is supposed to be very good (Ebert loved it), though I haven't watched it yet. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:39, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Noted, thanks! Storm Over Asia is next to watch though, probably tonight sometime!♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:41, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Seems interesting. I'll have to look into it once I've got the time. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:30, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: Have you seen Ikiru? Now that's one to see! BTW, you do realize that most articles on films reference Rotten Tomatoes and also external link it? It's there for convenience. Why should a reader have to look through a massive number of sources to find something? I just spent almost a minute trying to find the Rotten Tomatoes and Roger Ebert review in the sources. Whenever I visit a film article first things I want (after who directed and starred in it) are "what is the Rotten Tomatoes rating?" and "What did Roger Ebert think of it?". ♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:43, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • I seem to recall WP:EL is against doing that (WP:ELRC to be specific), although I could probably bear accepting the link to RT (not Ebert, because [neutrally] he's ultimately one of many critics). Anyways, I'll try and find a copy of Ikiru. Mrs. Crisco is questioning why we seem to end up with so many Japanese movies (we watched Ponyo last week), but so long as the films are good she has fun. We enjoyed Grave of the Fireflies, though she was surprised at the... ballsiness... of Pom Poko. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:53, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: Can you just add the RT link then? Agreed on the neutral critic thing, but at least a link to RL would be really helpful!♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:12, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Yep, I've added RT and Metacritic. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:28, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Chopin[edit]

Hi! sorry to have been out of touch. I think there may be some way to go yet in terms of fleshing out the mid-1840s. Many thanks for your Liszt section which was certainly needed- I hacked it about a bit in the light of some of the peer review comments on other sections. In the meantime inevitably others come in and tweak the article to their own agendas, - this is the most tiresome aspect of trying to promote articles.....--Smerus (talk) 09:17, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

@Smerus: Agreed, it's tiresome gunning for FA! It's definitely close though and I really think it would pass if nominated after much input from other editors of course. I think I've found what I could in google books, but I really think I'd need access to biographies to really find more detail. I don't want to get in the way of your editing of it though, but it really is one of those articles I've long wanted to get to FA!♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:25, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Reviews[edit]

@Montanabw:, @We hope:, @SchroCat:, I'm having a quiet day on here today but I hope to comment on your FAs tomorrow and Tuesday if I can.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:01, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Monthly focus of Project: Missing encyclopedic articles[edit]

Only 9 entries are left in the current monthly focus of the Missing articles project. All of them will be created in a few days. What should be the next monthly focus?--Skr15081997 (talk) 13:32, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Nice going! Not sure, I always think the DNB articles are worth doing but are unlikely to be all started within a month!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:12, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

A new article you might be interested in[edit]

Bheja Fry (film series), seemed informative so I've reviewed. Have a view? Thanks OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 14:48, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Bare urls could be filled out! Can't say that Indian comedy is anywhere near the top of my film passions though!♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:57, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
