nzmuse link love roundup

PSA: If you’re on the hunt for an offbeat movie to watch, look up What We Do in the Shadows. It’s been on my radar for awhile – made by and starring some of our top film/comedic talent, it took out a People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival. I FINALLY got around to watching it the other day, and all I can really say is wow. It’s so bizarre, so very Kiwi, and just … original. It won’t be for everyone, that is for sure.

    Oh lordy. Those “asian pick-up” lines are awful. I’d be surprised if any of them were ever once successful!

    Oh God, how bad is it that I’ve heard some of those “pick up lines” from previous boyfriends? *facepalm at my younger self*

    My Kiwi roommate told me about that movie, heard it’s amazing! Definitely on my list of ones to see!

    Accidentally discovered that movie on Air NZ on the way to the States in September. Watched it a second time on the way back from the States in October. SO FUNNY. 😉
