The Call Of The Wild review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 23 February 2014 04:49 (A review of The Call Of The Wild)

A charming and simple book but again I'm left with a feeling of anti-climax. I couldn't find any moment where I was extremely overjoyed or excited yet the book does explore the link of man-beast-beast in the bare wild where morals are circumstantial and survival is salient. Additionally quite skilfully it links the savagery of animal in the way man treats said animals thus making him equally as savage and loyal as the animal.

Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 23 February 2014 04:48 (A review of Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit)

This book was a struggle for me. The constantly trying to decipher the language written in a very British manner of literature devalued the experience. Most books I've read are coming of age ones but this is my least favorite so far;but I can and do empathize with and cheer on the main character Jeanette as she struggles with conflicts of family, community and herself. The fairy-tale stream of consciousness cut offs or sections did not relate to the main story and if so only in a bleak manner. The book is semi-autobiographical so as with real life I would not expect much hyperbolic excitement . Near to the end I was straining to finish and then ironically I'm left falling over an abyss with a blunt "well that's it" kind of ending. I wonder if that what death feels like. Well anyway I've finished my first book and hope read about 25 or more. The summer will be my high point I guess.

Welcome to the NHK

Posted : 3 years, 3 months ago on 18 October 2013 03:29 (A review of Welcome to the NHK)

Welcome to the NHK has remained plastered in my head for several months now which is always the sign of a great or terrible experience. Welcome to the NHK slaps the viewer in the face with a harsh piece of realism which depicts the theory of rationalism as irrational to the social human being. In the Industrial World and more specifically Japan so much pressure is placed on young people to achieve and continue the culture of conservatism and economic growth that those who fail or can't rise to the astronomical standards are disregarded and condemned to the menial faucets of society. Sato throughout the series holds the place of a companion, you and him suffer together, share the same food and cigarettes, cramped in the same space, the necessity of financially supportive parents. Hikikomori. As Sato met Misaki for the first time, I couldn't help but feel betrayed by him I wanted him to suffer with me not to go out or have a chance at a "real" life with a girl nonetheless;however as he got that crappy job or was pursuing his career in "gal games" I could not help but feel delight for our lonely warrior who showed me that even ashes one day becomes top soil.Welcome to the NHK is top draw dull sadness and a true slice of life. 10/10

Eraserhead review

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 27 August 2013 04:09 (A review of Eraserhead)

Well we seem to have a split jury on this one. Personally this film was one of the most boring experiences I've ever had watching a movie.From the beginning I was waiting for it to end, I did not come in with any preconceived notions either, this was my first David Lynch movie and it was a disappointment. The Lead actor Henry Spencer was bland but the Lady in the Radiator was quite disturbing. The sound editing of industrial noise really set the mood for one of the most bizarre films ever created. However, that is no excuse for the lack of anything in the film, its obvious this was Lynch's baby, and he didn't give a foot of what anyone one else might find interesting or intriguing...that alien baby was beyond weird.Words to describe this film: Threadbare,tiresome,monotonous,repugnant and outlandish.Maybe give it another turn on the merry-go-round...I have to admit Lynch launches you into this world of fear, boredom, sex and grinding monotony, where existence is singular. I've never not connected and connected with a movie so much before. 8/10 or 1/10?

Year One review

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 27 August 2013 03:51 (A review of Year One)

Watched it, rejected it but still watched it. Year One is one of those unfunny comedies, which is common, when writers and actors are trying too hard to be hilarious. If your looking for a movie where no attention or emotional attachment is needed. You can read a book and listen to the sweet background actions of Zed and Oh, being superficial, stereotypical and polar opposites yet best friends(never been done before).

Happiness review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 18 May 2013 07:29 (A review of Happiness)

Happiness(1998) explores the pretense of the optimistic existence all human beings yearn or think they will achieve if they pursue it hard enough. All the characters in this film are trapped and unaccompanied or as Bill Maplewood the pedophile psychiatrist puts it “we're all alone”. However, at the same time they are all connected skilfully in this photograph of separation, the poster really captures the essence of this. The ensemble cast is one of the best I've ever seen, with some of the most unconventional thespians in Hollywood who come together to deliver a delicious depiction of the derelict condition of happiness. Definitely a must see if your on a dreadful movie run or in demand of any self inspection, because what this film really does is to entertain the notion that we are all these characters, we all have strands of repulsion inside but some of us just know how to suppress said strands. Happiness manages to blend the emotions of disgust, empathy, kinship and humor all in one, a dark comedy at its finest. I couldn't help but to burst out in laughter when one of the characters declared herself, “really happy”, because her inclination to hide her pain was so relatable, no one in this movie/world genuinely cares about another person's anguish. 8/10

Beyond the Mat
Jan 20th Wiki Overview: The film focuses on the lives of professional wrestlers outside of the ring, primarily Mick Foley, Terry Funk, and Jake Roberts, as well as some aspiring wrestlers. It focuses on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) during its rise in popularity, and many other independent wrestlers and organizations. My take: I watched this movie with hopes that it would go more in depth somehow. For example, shitty promotions, horrible shows, injury (more than just glancing by), rehabilitation, drugs including steroids. Yet, the director is not the best at getting the substance that would make this a great documentary. He seems to be hanging around the promotions and trying to make friends instead of asking questions. Also, he is too involved on screen without offering anything to the scene The basic editing (leaving in irrelevant footage like the black wrestler's movie opportunity) and musical choices are terrible frankly and the documentary presents itself like a low budget fan made video. A rare good moment but you could get the same information by just watching the Wrestler with its glaring similarities or doing a bit of reading if you're interested with life behind the scenes. Overall it came off amateurish, opportunist and even staged in some parts. Overall rating 3.9.

Selma
Jan 18th A very good historical drama that shows aspect’s of King’s life that are differing from the saintly image he is often cloaked in. Even leaders are human and this film does a good job of showing King’s weakness as well as his strengths. David Oyelowo plays a very good leading role as Dr. King especially in his delivery of rousing speeches as well as in the more quiet moments with his wife or close advisors. In supporting roles Tom Wilkinson, Stephan James and Tim Roth who play Lyndon Johnson, John Lewis and George Wallace respectively are all exceptional in their delivery and performance on screen. The musical choices bring out the emotion of select scenes that stirs your very own emotions when it is aligned with images of brutality and corruption. The creative decisions in direction and cinematography flow very well to give you a film that is powerful and artistic. Overall rating 7.5

Nightcrawler
Jan 17th The screenplay is one of the most original I’ve seen and the film itself creative and innovative with the use of steady cameras and capturing the film within a film. On the surface it follows the sociopathic Bloom (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) who goes to extremes to get what he wants. Digging a little deeper we see a critque of news media and what is deemed “new worthy”. Also, comparisons with news and Hollywood where the story and narrative are most important. Gyllenhaal's performance is fantastic and worth the time. Overall rating. 7.2
