Gifville has moved to Ilford!

 

If you were wondering why there were no posts on Gifville yesterday, it’s because I was in the process of moving home. From Plaistow, I’ve relocated to Ilford, due to my tenancy being terminated by my landlord as he wanted to convert my room into a storage space. Ilford’s a good place with big houses and plenty of shops and entertainments on offer, but no Eiffel Tower.

Too fast, too crazy… in the camera angles

 

I’ve always liked the Too Fast Too Furious films. The latest instalment is titled ‘The Fate of the Furious’, which will be out in April 2017. This is an extract of the official trailer on YouTube.

Ilaiya Thalapathi

 

As much as it sounds cool to believe, no I haven’t suddenly jumped from being a blogger to becoming a Tamil film superstar. But this GIF shot of the opening credits of a ‘mass’ blockbuster are in honour of Joseph Vijay Chandrasekhar, who is considered one of the ‘gods’ of South Indian cinema, so at least I have a little claim to fame by name association!

Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 180

 

A scene from the 1988 film Salaam Bombay! where a little street kid (I think he was nicknamed Insect) does a little dance in his cinema seat only to be backhanded by the man behind him. This film was great in so many ways, even if some ways the plot was a little saddening and poignant.

Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 135

 

This is probably the first humorous GIF I’ve seen that makes reference to three different films. King Leonidas of 300 (2006) in the guise of Tony Montana from Scarface (1983) guns down Chunk the big kid from The Goonies (1985) with water balloons.
