My Movie Alphabet

I Started Late and Forgot the Dog.

Duke Mantee over at Spoilers did one of these as part of a blogathon, so I decided I wanted to do one, too.  I guess the blogathon is put on by this person.

A:  At Long Last Love

Oft-maligned tribute to ’30s musicals.  I happen to really like this movie for the silliness it is, probably spurred on by my irrational devotion to Cybill Shepherd (not to mention Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Burt Reynolds, and Cole Porter, but one need not be irrational to be devoted to those).

B: Bad Seed, the

I saw this for the first time in a hotel room with my mom when I was in 6th grade.  I was pretty sure it was the creepiest.  I saw it again recently and realized it’s a pretty smart, sharp movie.

C:  Cleopatra

Claudette Colbert, you crazy and fabulous, gurl.  I love you in pre-codes and in…

The Great Gatsby 2013

Berean Opinions

The F. Scott Fitzgerald classic hits theaters May 10, 2013. It was originally meant to be released this Christmas, meaning my darling, Leo, would have two blockbusters released on Christmas Day. I think it was a good decision considering they wouldn’t have to compete with such blockbusters such as Django Unchained and Les Miserables. I’m personally excited for this summer kick off.

2012: We were warned.

Talkies Are Telling

I think it’s time for an apocalypse movie marathon. This will probably not be on it, though I do take it as a sign of end times that John Cusack is no longer good looking or awkwardly charming. I take it as a tragically routine reminder of humanity’s grave ignorance, however, that no one will give this  dude props for making the awkwardly charming character a regular appearance in movies.  Sometimes I think Michael Cera should give John Cusack a considerable cut of his money.

On the Road

metromerp

On The RoadUS release date: December 21

Take me down to Sal Paradise story, where the cactus is green and the girls are easy; and there will be a lot of butt naked Dean Moriarty.
It’s a road movie, so audiences certainly will have to tolerate the abundance of walking, driving, and hitchhiking scenes. But if Water Salles really want to adapt and translate a novel to a film, he should be able to trim more typing and writing scenes. We know Sal is a writer, so we don’t need to see it over and over again. Scrap the redundant narration overdub while the character is shown typing or writing the words, and vice versa. It is surely unnecessary to show characters reading their own words.

My Rating: 5/10

Monuments and money

Hallidd's Weblog

Charlie_Chaplin

The Beatles brought down the USSR. I heard that. A younger generation of Soviet  youth listened to the Beatles and it changed their perspective on the communist world. (I’m sure it wasn’t that simple.)

But when did Entertainers become world figures? Before the Beatles there was Elvis. But Elvis had no content. He had no view on life. The only figure I can think of is Charlie Chaplin. He was at one time the most recognized figure on the planet Earth. His films were shown in every corner of the world. And he had a viewpoint. (Though not always political.)

Before the twentieth century and its inventions, the mass production of iconic figures was reduced to money and monuments. And those represented on the money/monuments were either religious or military figures.

The minstrel was just another fool.

In Defense of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’

Into the Dance

On December 15, I went into the movie theater prepared to be disappointed.

Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” has been criticized by some for essentially fitting Bilbo Baggins description of himself at the beginning of “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”:

I feel … like butter scraped over too much bread.

Jackson, while remaining faithful to the story of Bilbo’s journey as depicted in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” has supplemented it with material from the appendices of “The Lord of the Rings” and from some of Tolkien’s other works.  The extra storylines deal with events that:

1) Are connected to Gandalf the Wizard’s involvement in Bilbo’s quest; and
2) Will lead up to the events of the “Rings” trilogy.

In consequence, what was a pretty lightweight book intended mainly for children is being brought to audiences in three films, the first of which is…

In the Shadow of the Sun: IDFA Review

In The Shadow of the Sun - H 2012

The Bottom Line

Engaging documentary tackles a harrowing theme of superstitious prejudice in straightforward, safe-hands style with suitably moving and inspirational results.

Director/screenwriter/producer

Harry Freeland

Harry Freeland’s British documentary examines the plight of albinos suffering discrimination and persecution in Tanzania.

If film-festival audience-awards mean anything thenis surely set for a long and rewarding career on both big and small screensBritish writer-director-producer Harry Freeland‘s conscientiously awareness-raising documentary about the problems faced by albinos in eastern Africa was one of the major crowd-pleasers when world-premiering at Amsterdam’s IDFA non-fiction showcase. Freeland’s feature-length debut lost the popular vote by the narrowest of margins to the Oscar-tipped the pair clear of a very large field.

Screened at Amsterdam in its full 84-minute form, an hour-long version with the rather more lurid title aired on British television soon after as part of the BBC’s strand. But there’s easily enough material here to justify feature length, not least the…

Flying Billboard Hobbit

Squawky

Billboards have taken to the Skies

The “FLYING” Billboard.The 73m (239′ 6″) plane is fully wrapped in a design depicting characters from the prequel to blockbuster trilogy The Lord of the Rings. It certainly is a different type of advertising and I would imagine a blockbuster budget helped to get this project off the ground. Flying high with advertising wings.

What do you think?

We’re Not Worthy!

One of the many classic scenes from Wayne’s World. Love it! 🙂

Wayne Campbell: So, do you come to Milwaukee often?

Alice Cooper: Well, I’m a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.

Pete: In fact, isn’t “Milwaukee” an Indian name?

Alice Cooper: Yes, Pete, it is. Actually, it’s pronounced “mill-e-wah-que” which is Algonquin for “the good land.”

Wayne Campbell: I was not aware of that.
