On the one hand, if the word "Toyota" was anywhere in writing, then I support her winning. If it was only ever verbal and a play on words, and if it was never actually stated explicitly it was a car, then I don't support her winning the suit and she should be happy with the Yoda. 

Maybe the story is just a joke and not actually real?

Anyway, I plan to watch the star wars movie next week sometime and will give my rating on this thread straight after smily_headphones1.gif

Trailer of upcoming Russian sci-fi film Second Earth. I think that Russians can make highly competitive sci-fi films if they want. Hopefully this one will turn out decent but it is a low budget indie movie made by enthusiasts not film professionals.

The whole nature thing and pace reminds me of 1972 Solaris.

Should I be relieved or furiously in rage?

At least it's not brown paper bag boy...

Everyone can make a competitive sci fi movie. What matter is just how well they can execute it!!!

Sometimes being made by amateurs is a good thing. Think of Primer, which was tons better than most of the sci-fi movies out there (including Interstellar), no matter what their budget was.

When Cargo came out in 2009 many were questioning how there could be good Swiss Sci-Fi?









But now with low cost CGI anyone with any funds has the chance to make a good Sci-Fi movie.

Kraftidioten 2014   10/10  Absolutely breathtakingly filmed, this small Norwegian effort hits the old man on revenge plot a hard a Taken3 misses. The constantly employed Stellan Skarsgaard

                                      turns in an immaculate performance in what would be a typical Nordic Noir film were it not for the comedy of errors plotting. While not a film you will see nominated

                                      for myriads of awards this film does everything is sets out to perfectly and takes the riding off into the sunset ending to a whole new level..

American Sniper 5/10. Dunno if this is anti war? Not the way I viewed it. Enemy at the Gates is a much better sniper movie though.

 

Kraftidioten next.

The Fool ( Durak, Russia, 2014) 8.5/10

 

 

There were constant comparisons between this film Durak and Leviathan ( both Russian) on internet. Many liked Durak even better. So I decided to give it a try. Leviathan is more artsy with contemplative cinematography, Durak is more documentary like. I have to admit Durak is very close to reality despite it looks like a social horror. It looks like a hell of a life but it is real life. It IS that bad.

 

Review from IMDB

 This movie could be a documentary on Russian society, it's hopes and fears, it's ideology, the eternal conflict between people and government officials, the dark and hopeless landscape of human minds where one can still choose to be human.

As a Russian myself, having lived in my homeland for 34 years already, I can say that there's nothing that will tell you more about Russians than this movie. It is not a heroic WW2 nonsense, not a dumb czar era pictures, but modern life as it is. The things you will see in the film are definitely depressing and hopeless, showing the state of decay in society «God created this kind of life and he made us live it.».

Bringing Out The Dead

I'm currently going through EMT training so I figured I'd revisit this Martin Scorsese flick with all this new context I have. The editing is real, hmmm, spastic? maybe to impart upon the viewer how Nic Cage's character was seeing the world going on almost no sleep and being haunted by the ghosts of people he couldn't save. Lots of recognizable actors, including two from The Wire. They did a good job of making seem like a job only a crazy person would do.

 

I don't think I'd have known this was a Scorsese flick if I'd gone in blind; feels more Tarantino-y. Not bad.

 

7/10

Kraftidioten ( 2014, Norway) 8.2/10

 

Surprisingly funny for such a bloody criminal drama. There is also social satire and the film is perceived as pretty realistic. It is well crafted and though themes feel derivative ( Coen brothers, Tarantino) it kind of stands on its own.

Not much could tempt me into a cinema. I prefer comfort, DVDs and being well behind the times...

 

Robocop. Nose. Clothespeg. Guaranteed to make you go and get the original to flush your brain out with non-antiseptic violence. Seriously, for modern TV and films, where are all these kung-fu classes held? (Lesson 1, if you are a henchperson, line up in an orderly manner for the hero to kick your bottom).

 

Guardians of the Galaxy was seriously good. Laughs, less angst (Yes you, Wolverine...) , and a stoating soundtrack.  I now have "Spirit in the Sky" running in my head.

 

 

But the winnah has to be Paddington. And not just because it made me venture out to see it on the big screen. 

 

Long time* since I've seen a film that was that good, or adapted by people who absolutely got it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Tie between The Firth / Ehle "Pride and Prejudice" and "Lonesome Dove".
