Second time I see this film directed by Larisa Sheptiko.
This is possibly the most singular war movie I've ever seen, mostly due to the contrast between the poetic beauty and enchantment it often displays and the cruel and harsh reality of the story.

 

It is a decent b&w Soviet movie about the WWII, probably one of the best but there were some other Soviet movies which you should watch to make a complete picture. If you want to try a truly epic b&w Soviet movie then I would advise you Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev. Tarkovsky's war movie Ivan's Childhood is also superb. Another classic is Ballad of a Soldier.

 

Contemporary Russian classic is My Joy (2011).

 My Joy is one of the darkest, if not THE darkest films ever made. I'd put it in a league with A. Tarkovsky's 1979 film "Stalker" for pure paranoia, insanity and photography only possible in an expanse like Russia. I would not advise watching this too close to bedtime, or while drinking a lot of Vodka. This film will 'creep you out' and it will do this without the special effects, camera tricks or other cinematic gadgetry used in the West.

Andrei Tarkovsky is one of the biggest holes in my weak knowledge of cinema, I don't recall ever seeing any of his movies before!

I'm getting some of his ouvre in the next times for sure.

Ballad of a Soldier seems interesting as well.

I'm glad that you'll be taking corrective measures to fill said hole soon! Tarkovsky was a giant of cinema, and I feel like he's sort of overlooked these days. Though it certainly could be because he's not as easy to get into as some of the other classic giants of cinema, like Kurosawa or even Bergman.

Homefront: 

 

9/10

 

That movie was AWESOME. A good story with staggering fight scenes. Seriously, the fight scenes in this movie are unbelievable.

Really good movie. In college I was obsessed with Takashi Miike's films. Did a whole thesis on his films too.

 

Happiness of the Katakuris and Audition are also very good. If you want to see just how f**ed up Miike can get watch Visitor Q.

The Yellow Submarine - 10/10

I REALLY liked this one, lots of thoughts flowing into and out of my mind, pretty much a predetermined LSD trip with all the thoughts and emotions it draws out, I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to see something out of the ordinary and also is a very nice perspective on the difference of perspectives, definitely going to watch this again sometime the way it was meant to be watched experienced.

Erich Segal (Love Story) was one of the writers on this and Peter Max claims some credit for the animation and George Martin scored the soundtrack, The Beatles were not initially very happy about this concept, they changed their minds once they saw it and contributed the end credits and "All Together Now."

 

A great film and influenced the direction of animation and Pop art. Agreed 10/10

 

Why did Ringo punch that button?

Oh that's really interesting, just watched it on a whim and I'm glad I did!
Well he was a lever pulling guy, he may have also been a button pushing one, or it shows that he wanted to get away from what was happening and wants to continue as he normally has, but all the Indians and stuff show that his wishes won't really do any good since he has already soon too much to not keep going and that since he started this journey he needs to finish it. (what I think him pressing it meant to me right now at 23:27 haha. tongue.gif)

Oh and I totally forgot to include how much I enjoyed the art, I'd love to have been around to experience the late 60s and see the style everywhere, it's beautiful in my opinion, shows you don't need super high-quality effects and the like to get your point across, a pencil and paper, a well written dialogue, and some music is all you need to bring out many many ideas in one's mind.

Rush - 7,5

 

Intense and emotional dramatization of one rivalry episode in F1 history.

It's competent, a bit less melodramatism and pointless drag here and there, could make it a bit better, but wouldn't expect anything else from a movie aspiring popularity.

It is what it is, OK movie, not much to say...

post #14805 of 17238

There is a lot to say about Rush. Best sound effects ever glad I didn´t watch this with headphones but in cinema. And racing scenes that is not to corny or poopy :).

 

Captain Phillips and a Hijacking

 

Okay movies all. A Hijacking is a bit hamstrung by limited budget but I did preferr it over Captain Phillips.

 

Nice with a movie where the money making corporates aren´t all corrupted for a change.
