Personally I don't much care about this genre and it's not the reason why I love 2001: A Space Odyssey.

When I see this movie I don't feel like I'm watching sci-fi at all.

 

Man I managed to download Stalker and Solaris rips since days ago, but haven't got the time to see them yet, I'm major curious.

Solaris is maybe one of the slower movies to watch. I found though that the slow transitional pace helps make something extraordinary seem real. It's really long. But fantastic!

Yes Stalker has an amazing feel due to the slow pace :). As for Solaris I never made it through I did enjoy the shortened hollywood remake of it though ;)

Well it helps to see it in English. Sadly the Criterion DVD redu of it does not have an English audio track. Still try and see the original, as the movie gets going after an hour or so.:tongue:

I'm curious did you watch other non sci-fi Tarkovsky movies?

No not yet, I'm really a fan of Sci/Fi. Which would you suggest first?

 

Tarkovsky's first feature film was Ivan's Childhood in 1962. He then directed Andrei Rublev in 1966, Solaris in 1972, The Mirror in 1975 and Stalker in 1979. The documentary Voyage in Time was produced in Italy in 1982, as was Nostalghia in 1983. His last film The Sacrifice was produced in Sweden in 1986. Tarkovsky was personally involved in writing the screenplays for all his films, sometimes with a cowriter. Tarkovsky once said that a director who realizes somebody else's screenplay without being involved in it becomes a mere illustrator, resulting in dead and monotonous films.[11][12]

 

Here is the only English audio track DVD I have found. The picture is not at all like what Criterion has done but it's OK.

Got ya! If it weren't for his Solaris and Stalker then Tarkovsky would have been unknown in the US.

I had the fortune of seeing both Andrei Rublev and The Mirror in 35mm. They were two of the better cinema going experiences I've had. I think those two are his two best films.

Stalker
Andrei Rublev and The Mirror


THX!

Bad Grandpa - 5/10

 

Wish I had skipped it. Somehow the grandpa scenes in the actual Jackass movies are far more funny.

Rented this for $4..ugh..should have not passed it up at Redbox for $1.50 a couple days earlier.

 

Neither of the characters could act IMO. The guy who played "Borat" was totally convincing as an actor..but Knoxville..not so much. I know it's not supposed to be all about the acting, but it was just bad..

 

BTW I can't wait to see the Japanese film "Like Father, Like Son" (only on cable VOD at the moment..how stupid). and buy "All is Lost".

 

If you loved "All is Lost" maybe you can try "The Impossible". Be sure to listen to it with a well amped HD-650 or even LCD2.

 

Still been into watch a specific TV series so not many movies lately..

 

I watched season 1-5 of "Doc Martin" on Hulu Plus..yeah, i 'm weird.

All is Lost is ridiculous on qood quality headphones. There is so much subtlety in the soundtrack, and headphones brings it all to life.

I had the pukes, and thus nothing better to do than watch a long movie and try not to think about hurling supper to the walls. I chose The Godfather, Part II, having recently seen and quite liked the first. I think Part II is even better. I won't go into details (I'm not reviewing the film, I'm rating it), but suffice it to say they don't make 'em like this anymore. 5/5 stars.

Prior to this, my last movie was Elysium.

Ugh.

Have some sickness that makes me super tired. Slept 14h last night but I still managed to see all four movies I rented within a day. Metallica Through the never. I can´t rate this one as I apart from the 14h also slept through 2/3rds of this but I really just wanted to try it before going for the bluray 3D version I really want to own later.

 

Now you see me! 5/10. More scifi then magic. The facebook guy is annoying also which don´t help and didn´t really do anything for me.

Pacific Rim 3D... Despite the 3D doesn´t reach the heights of Battleship (9/10). 7/10 I can give it if you have a big screen and good speaker setup.

Red 2. Totally exhausted by this time but I enjoyed it almost as much as the original. Anthony Hopkins always manage to be brilliant. Not the biggest fan of Bruce but good casting otherwise.

You gave Battleship a 9/10 ? :blink:
