Vulture: Every Coen Brothers Movie, Ranked From Worst to Best.

I haven’t watched “No Country for Old Men” and “Blood Simple” (nor the new “Hail, Caesar!”), so I don’t have an opinion on those movies, but I would have ranked “Burn After Reading” and “Oh Brother Where Art Though” higher, and I didn’t much care for “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “A Serious Man”. I watched “The Man Who Wasn’t There” ages ago – maybe I should give it another try?

I’m home with a cold today. I made some asian chicken soup √† la Sachiko, which helped quite a bit, and now I’m amusing myself with some surfing…

While we’re talking about cooking, there was a thread on French Toast recipes on Ask MeFi a while ago, and I’ve been eager to try to make some French Toast ever since I first tried it during our vacation in 2008. Heather Weber of Shintangle Spring Bed & Breakfast near Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada, makes amazing French Toast with cinnamon – it’s to die for! We just may have to stay there again for the breakfast alone… ūüėČ

Different continent: Mr. Rau from Munich makes Gyoza, Japanese-style dumplings, following this this recipe from Steamy Kitchen, written by La Fuji Mama. I’ve got to try that as well.

For dessert, how about some Mr. Bean?

My favourite animation characters are back!

New York Times Movie Review – Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit: A New Challenge for an Englishman and His Dog (printer-friendly version).

Sounds like the film is just as great as the first three (which we’ve watched again and again), so I’m looking forward to seeing it. The film opens in German theaters on October 13th; I hope that one of the cinemas near us is going to show the non-dubbed version.
