Spent the day watching Paprika, Tokyo Godfathers and Millennium Actress, in that order, in memory of Satoshi Kon. I didn't watch Perfect Blue 'cause I had already seen it, same with Paranoia Agent.

Paprika was very good, visually in particular, but the visuals were so consistently fantastic that it grew somewhat tiring. The plot was also kinda slow-started, but the climax was amazing.

Tokyo Godfathers, I kinda found inferior to Paprika but in a sense I still liked it more because it was much more relaxing to watch. Had probably the strongest characters out of all Kon's movies. The heavy reliance on bizarre coincidences and deus ex machina, while obviously intentional, didn't sit well with me. I'm not sure what the purpose of it was.

Millennium Actress had a core plot that I could relate to, actually one very similar to that of a story I once tried to write. It's always interesting to see your own ideas so efficiently realized by other people, although way before you even had them in the first place. It's both a good and a bad thing to see things done the way you would have done them yourself though, and the final line of the movie was fucking stupid.

I enjoyed all these movies but found them all quite inferior to Perfect Blue.

Please, somebody kill me. I just watched Undefeatable (is that even a proper word?)and it's gotta be one of the worst movies I have ever watched, right next to stuff like IKU and Space Mutiny. Really, I can't even explain how offensively bad it was. It's one of these movies that has to be seen to be believed - and you shouldn't. Whenever people ask me why I am so hateful and cynical, it's because of stuff like this. Only notable because wikipedia says it has the worst fight scene ever.
Don't believe me? Here is a review to demonstrate just a fraction of the pain I have suffered in the last 95 minutes:

This movie makes me ashamed to be a human being.

Ha, Anthile! I didn't see that until now. What can I say, I'm fond of sad endings that include death and destruction. And if I'm lucky, I'll get to see someone in tears!

I realize the plot wasn't particularly believable. But I don't think I pay too much attention to the obvious plot when I watch movies, I realize now. I rather look for what's underneath, that's where all the fascinating stuff lies. And few movies pull that off successfully. Either they are all "I am weird movie that obviously has hidden meaning" or "I am action movie, watch me kill things". Armageddon isn't on my "like list", though.

Fight club wasn't tragic enough. Though, I actually find myself enjoying it more now. I watched it again some days ago, and it got upgraded to my like list.

Public Enemies: It was boring, but I liked Dillinger's girlfriend. I could somewhat relate to her.

I think I'm going to watch Pan's Labyrinth next. It's been a while since I saw it, but I really enjoyed the ending. There's also more than one thing going on. It has a sense of desperation to it that I'm drawn to.

Ed: I used the word "like" too many times, so I changed them >_>

Signs by M. Night Shyamalan

I was relatively impressed with Mel Gibson's performance. He seemed believable and surprisingly hilarious as the straight man in the lighter comedy scenes. Plot wise it was a bit weak. All the running through corn fields made my skin itch. The aliens weren't actually very creepy at all and disappointingly human-like. Joaquin Phoenix played the part he generally plays which is a weird combination of childlike wonderment and broken adult disillusionment. The kids were suitably odd. All in all I give this movie a B-.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.

I don't know what to say. I'm stubborn. I should have watched it a long time ago. All the recommendations made me feel rebellious. It rocked. You can't go wrong with Gary Oldman and Tim Roth. They were brilliant. The dialog was hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. My cheeks hurt now. Too much funny. And it was clever.

So, I was dragged to watch The Sorcerer's Apprentice by my family, and although there were quite a few details that just bothered me, it was a nice little bit of escapism, and I'm glad that for once a physics nerd is honoured with the central role.

Their attempts to merge science and magic were noble, if dumb and contrived.

Also, I've been trapped in an urn for the past ten years, too! A figurative urn. Of ridicule.

I've decided I've seen far to few film noir genre movies so I started with The Big Sleep with Bogart and Bacall. It was interesting. The tropes developed from this genre are epic and this movie included quite a few of them. I've been deluded into thinking that women of good reputation were not allowed to show any skin back then. It was interesting seeing that sex and alcohol is a big part of this genre but in a less obvious manner than modern movies.

Basically what I said in the spoiler.
Spoiler:
Assuming that Shyamalan is not an incredible lazy writer (he probably is), the alien invasion is not supposed to be a real alien invasion. Just keep in mind how easily the aliens are beaten - with water. Unless those aliens are the thickest aliens since Jar Jar Binks, invading a planet that is mostly covered in a deadly substance, pretty much everything that moves consists mostly of that substance and in most areas said deadly substance falls from the sky is beyond suicidal. It's like us humans try to invade Venus - naked. Now everyone who has watched Signs knows that the story is not about aliens but about a man regaining his faith. Graham is a priest. It's his water that kills the aliens - it's holy water. Considering how contrived the events in the last part of the movie are, "God send alien-demons to teach him a lesson" does not seem too far off.

Fun fact: whenever you see blood in b&w movies, it's most likely chocolate syrup. Good old Kensington Gore looked too 'unrealistic'.

Spoiler:
Okay, yes. That makes sense to me. I had thought it ridiculous that these things ran through damp fields of corn with no apparent injury. While Graham's relationship with God is the center of the story I hadn't thought about the holy water aspect of it which is just blindness on my part since he was a priest formally. I just didn't make the connection since he wasn't a Catholic priest. It was utter silliness having the children be the source of information about how to deal with an alien invasion. I can see where that was meant to undermine the notion that the creatures were aliens. Although, endangering the entire planet just so one man can get his faith back is equally silly. Makes God seem very shallow and small. Meh, while I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Night meant to make the creatures be demons I doubt he meant to make a point that God is a spoiled child. Then again there was that whole Happening fiasco.

Coraline (sounds like an airline company).

I enjoyed this one. I watched it in 3D. Equipment wasn't optimal, but even though I saw mostly greenish/ grayish, I was so fascinated that I watched the whole movie in it, (never watched anything in 3D before). I'm easily amused...

Tomorrow, When the War Began. It was one of my favourite book series since I first came across them in 2000 (and now I'm rereading them again). Seeing it come to life visually was a very interesting experience. A few little things I didn't like (such as the good old multi-angle replay of a large explosion) but overall it was good and faithful to the book. In particular Homer and Ellie were very much like how I imagined them to be in the books.

North by Northwest and The Big Sleep are both great movies. The last one I watched though was Arabesque. People that like old film noir won't be disappointed.

Then I shall move on to Arabesque next!

I just saw BBC's 4 episode adaptation of North and South by Gaskell yesterday. It's a period film about industrialized Northern England and the more idyllic Southern England. It attempts to define the class wars of the time but focuses mostly on the love story of Margaret and John. I enjoyed it though I have to admit I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much if the male lead wasn't quite so attractive or the female lead quite so independent. Sadly, the history just wasn't as accurate or as detailed as I would have liked. The story was the usual tale of a headstrong girl with multiple suitors who eventually chooses the least likely suitor. You know the type. He's the one that is misunderstood and socially inept or inappropriate right up until the last 10 minutes where he suddenly changes his behavior or new information makes it clear that he's been a principled person all along. It's the usual comedy of errors kind of story. Alright, it's more complicated than I make it sound but only just. Those who enjoy dialogue heavy period films like myself will enjoy this. It's not as dialogue heavy as BBC's (Colin Firth's) Pride and Prejudice which has an entire meal's worth of witty banter. I suppose North and South is the Turkish Delight or Chocolate Covered Cherry of the period film world. Dainty and delicious but not a whole meal. This is my new guilty pleasure I think.

There must be something about it that appeals to a certain aspect of us because I checked it out on Rotten tomatoes after watching it, expecting it to have an 80-90% Fresh rating and it wound up with a 53% rotten. For some reason I just can't understand, it isn't considered by most people to be a particularly good movie. I, on the other hand, loved virtually every minute of it.

Here's the last mvoies I watched.

The Element of Crime:

It's a post-apocalyptic, almost cyberpunk-ish film noir detective something! It's Lars von Trier's debut film and it's kinda hard to describe. On the one hand, it's extremely pretentious arthouse cinema without any point or meaning and on the other hand it's beautifully shot, using a lot of fancy monochrome and it shows that von Trier is a huge Tarkovsky and Welles. The actual plot is kind of lackluster and one can only suspect that it only serves to show off all the references. If you like stuff like Chinatown or Bladerunner, you might enjoy this movie as well because it captures a similar atmosphere, although it never really comes near those two masterpieces. But it looks pretty nifty:


Suspiria:

I mainly watched this because I was told this was the main inspiration for the Umineko games/anime. I was genuinely surprised when I later on read on wikipedia that this was voted one of the best and scariest horror films of all time. I admit, I'm easy to scare when it comes to movies but this one didn't much to me. In fact, in my opinion Suspiria waddled constantly through three phases: genuinely scary, goofy and plain weird and you never know what you get next. The plot is basically, an American dancer goes to a German ballet academy in Freiburg, a murder happens and things are not what they seem to be! Any further description would be spoileriffic. The acting could be better, the cinematography is great and the soundtrack is outstanding, made by the Italian Prog Rock band Goblin. I admit, this was actually a pretty good movie. It just didn't work as a horror film for me. It's worth watching for the vicious and elaborate murder scenes alone.

Black Moon:

Black Moon is pretty much what happens if David Lynch decided to make a remake of Alice In Wonderland. No plot, no point and truckloads of meaningless, pretentious symbolism. Unwatchable, unenjoyable. Surreal cinema at its worst. The only thing you will get out of this movie are bragging rights.

Strange Days:

An interesting underworld thriller with cyberpunk elements written by none other than James Cameron. Made in 1995 and set in the distant future of 1999, Strange Days plays shortly before the Millennium and basically follows the "main character gets his hands on evidence of an unspeakable crime" trope but with a lot of twists and turns, echoing the film noir genre. The characters are well-written and especially Lenny and Mace come over as very sympathetic. For some reason, it was a complete box office disaster. Overall, this is a very enjoyable movie.

Death And The Compass:

I watched this movie mainly because it's based on a Jorge Luis Borges story. In a way, it's very much like The Element of Crime. A pretentious, low-budget film noir-esque crime story. If you are familiar with the short story, you won't get anything out of this, it's the same story, that is actually just a few pages long, spread over 90 minutes. Naturally, it cannot work and so it's dragging on forever. Boring.

A Fistful Of Dollars:

Also, the trailer gave me the impression there would be a greater number of heroes, so that disappointed me a bit.

House of Games, screenwriter David Mamet. I rented this from the library and renewed it. I watched it, then again with commentary and now two weeks later again. There is something logical about every step. Every step fits making me feel very comfortable. I had trouble understanding the characters. I recommend this to INTPs who I think would like it. I wonder if you would agree.

I've heard from several people that I'd like Element of Crime. Maybe I'll check it out.

I just finished Roman Polanski's Ghost Writer. I really enjoy Polanski movies for their dialogue. My favorite line: "He's not going to drown two ghost writers, for god's sake. You're not kittens!" The plot flows intuitively and the actors played their part subtly. McGregor made a good unwitting but curious/suspicious outsider who's always one step behind. The soundtrack is in a lot of ways non-existent except to accentuate the mood of the scene. This is a talking movie and there is very little action and the main violent scenes happen off screen. I think INTPs might enjoy this movie. I certainly did.

Last night saw "Silent Light." Not sure if this would appeal to INTPs. It appeals to intuition, not thinking (I think). I don't qualify for reviewing it as these reviews are better than anything I could say -- unless someone else saw it for discussion:

I watched Robogeisha the other day. It was hell in a Kimono. Don't do it. However, if you like really bad films then you should see it. It was hilarious but also not hilarious. I don't really know what to make of it. I saw it in Japanese because I couldn't find a quality English or Italian or Spanish dub/sub to torrent borrow. Lots of weapons come out of lots of orifices.

^ Damn. That's one of those things that can't be unseen.

Who knew Geisha's were so versatile?

"Fried Shrimp", lol.



Anyway, I just watched Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" on Blu-Ray with the kids. Is it me, or does the fact that the beast becomes a pretty boy in the end kind of negate the whole "inner beauty" message of the film? Sure they fall in love, but the story just isn't complete unless he ends up looking like he should be on the cover of GQ stroking a 12" cock, with teeth that sparkle in any lighting condition, and hair that is so long and luscious it makes women throw their panties at him like they're at the New York Stock Exchange. Some fucking fairy tale you sick bastards. Oh and I did the math and that fucking curse was placed on him when he was ten years old! What ten year old boy isn't a selfish little prick?

...... Just sayin'

Just watched "The Secret of Kells" and loved it. Based on the trailers, I didn't think I would care for the animation, but something about it had me transfixed and I found it to be a really beautiful film with great atmosphere and music. I think it's a good idea to do a little reading on the Book of Kells before watching the movie, though.

I went and saw "Social Network" last week, and I actually really enjoyed it, and had no idea that there was so much drama involved at all in the making of facebook.

But as my avatar might show, I just watched the movie "Labyrinth" and yea...

Spoiler:


David Bowie was a total badass...but that fox/squirrel/dog thing was teh coolest

^That movie took a little dramatic license with the actual facts behind those guys but it was interesting.

I really liked the animation style of Secret of Kells. I must needs find the book or learn more about it.

I just watched Malice in Wonderland. It was fun and actually rather different from the usual twisted-fairytale version of Alice in Wonderland. I rather enjoyed the white rabbit as a fast talking street smart cab driver. Also, almost died laughing when he trashed a romantic moment by telling the girl he was just giving her a once over so he'd have something to think about when he was rubbing off a quickie later. I say check it out if you aren't a prude.

That sounds suspiciously like a porno spoof...

Last two movies I've watched besides a lot of Farscape episodes:

Encounters At The End Of The World

Directed and narrated by my favorite director besides Kubrick, Werner Herzog, it's a documentation about Antarctica. Philosophical, thought-provoking and beautifully shot, Herzog shows the South Pole like you have never seen it before, showing humans and other animals, why and how they live in this seemingly uninhabitable place. The narration, spoken in Herzog's heavily German-accented English adds an odd layer of his own brand of dry and pessimistic humour. Also, Kierkegaardian penguins:


Air Doll

This is a very Japanese tale. It's about an inflatable sex doll that suddenly becomes alive and develops a soul without any give explanation as to why this happens. It doesn't really matter anyway. Now hear me out before you go and shout Oh, those wacky Japanese did it again! because it's actually a good movie. Nozomi, that's the name of the doll, then begins to explore the world outside of her owner's apartment. She soon learns what it means to be human and what the urban life does to people. In fact, the whole movie with its "magical realism" reminded me a lot of Amélie. If it was directed by Friedrich Nietzsche. While stunningly beautiful at times, it's absolutely soul-crushingly depressive. I don't think it's too much of a spoiler when I say it doesn't end well.
A special mention goes to the soundtrack because it's one of the best you will ever hear in your life, made by one of my all-time favorite artists, World's End Girlfriend. In fact, the soundtrack was the reason I watched this in the first place.

Just watched "The Town" starring and directed by Ben Afleck. It's average at best with large portions that could be cut out and wouldn't have changed the story. I feel like it's a watered down variant of "The departed" with lots of shooting, a weak plot, but solid character development.

My verdict? Don't waste $11 watching this at a theatre, your 2 1/2 hrs are better spent elsewhere. Maybe when it comes out on DVD or bluray the special features would change this but until then, not really worth your time.

So, after I watched about 50 episodes from Monday to Friday, I watched the concluding mini-series The Peacekeeper Wars in the morning which consists of two 90 minute long movies. What can I say? It's awesome. And crazy. And tragic. And touching. And Awesome. A worthy ending to a great but underrated show.

Not sure what to watch next, I still have a dozen or so of all kinds of movies lying around here...

Splice, last night. I watched it shortly after it first came out, but decided to rewatch it as many people I know rave about it whereas I can't get over some of its faults (how two fairly small fighting beings could unbolt and tip over a metal cabinet, how Elsa holds about five drawings when she's about to burn Dren's things and how she seems to have at least ten when the camera moves, how painfully cheesy Dren's line in the rape scene was, and so on). It didn't help.

I finally watched Ponyo last night. It was pretty awesome. Hayao Miyazaki is definitely one of my favorite film makers.
I have nothing else to say. . .

Lost Highway


Brilliant, brilliant movie. Very surreal, and extremely dense and difficult, but a sheer masterpiece, I'm just blown away.

I watched some other movies meanwhile, mainly two Edgar Allen Poe flicks from 1914 and a Poe biopic from 2006; all of which were alright, I guess, but nothing noteworthy.

I'm here because of another movie. When I stumbled through Cinemageddon these days, I mistyped while using the search function and thus accidentally found a movie with the rather odd name Survive Style 5+ [sic!]. As experienced cineastes may have already guessed from the title, it's Japanese. Well, I have consumed enough Japanese products in my life to become very careful with them. However, the description was intriguing enough to let me download it anyway. I'm glad that I can trust my intuition so much because, as it turned out, Survive Style 5+ is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life, definitely Top-10 worthy. You see, the reason why I write so much about me acquiring and watching and so little about the actual content of the movie is because Survive Style 5+ is really more of an experience. It's impossible to explain or describe it to someone who has not seen it. I cannot even describe any memorable scene because the whole movie consists of about two hours of memorable scenes. Well, I guess you could say that it is basically a black comedy with surreal elements, embedded into an episodic narrative, but that doesn't really do it justice. I'd probably call it an ode to absurdism or something. I could even show you a trailer or screencaps but it wouldn't really mean anything, nothing I can tell you could prepare you for Survive Style 5+.
You simply have to watch it for yourself.

Here is the original plot summary from Cinemageddon if you're interested:
Spoiler:
Some things can't be explained, and SURVIVE STYLE 5+ is one of them. A candy-colored comedy from Japan, it stars British footballer, Vinnie Jones, and ICHI THE KILLER star, Tadanobu Asano, in a movie that assumes the shortest distance between two points is via the fifth dimension.

A salaryman wins tickets to the latest stage sensation: hypnosis show VIVA FRIENDS! In the middle of the act an assassin shows up and sticks a pin through the hypnotist's skull just when the salaryman has been turned into a bird. A gang of housebreakers roams the suburbs, dealing with their budding lust for one another. A man kills and buries his wife, only to have her claw her way out of her grave and go after him with missile arms and fire breath, over and over again. An advertising executive goes off the deep end and begins bringing her clients some of the funniest and most vulgar commercials ever seen on TV.

Somehow director Gen Sekiguchi pulls all these strands together into a movie that is thrillingly original. Jettisoning traditional movie tricks this flick aims for something more, and it gets there. The ending will leave your brain and your heart feeling freshly scrubbed, and you will be absolutely unable to explain any of it to anyone else. So bring everyone you know so they, too, can experience the one-of-a-kind adventure that is SURVIVE STYLE 5+. A movie where love means never having to kill your wife more than five or six times.


Oh, and the soundtrack is pretty cool too.

"The Final" I liked it but I think that there should have been more torture.

I watched a 1974 movie called Vampyres (A.K.A. Daughters of Dracula).

I'm not entirely certain I want anybody to know that.
