A little slow to start with but he film pulls together and satisfies.
Is Heidi* with guns (imdb: tt0993842) and is a perfect for showing the problems of Hollywood with no mainstream cinema release, minimal dialogue (words are bad) and lots of action. It ended up in dvd. I wonder why.
When most films are losing dialogue, George Locus seems to be discovering them one word at a time (NOO**).
* who was a swiss girl who loked after her grandfathers cows in the alps.** in 3d too.
imdb: tt0118929 was wrecked at the cinema in 1998, subsequent cuts and widescreen then saved the film on dvd and eventually caught my attention recently as it proves that cinema operators are rather big in chav and asbo films.
It is an interesting film that uses tricks used before Keanu Reeves used them, and has an inception like quality too, although extremely murky to watch is worth the happy ending. 5/5 bananas
imdb: tt0775489 is probably something you will mix up with another film of the same name (which was rather good), the 2010 film had a non existent release and unless you happened to be really keen festival goer in one place its doubtful anybody saw it.
It is now on dvd and the three people at the festival who did see it are promoting it as a dvd release. That points to failure in the UK’s cinema purchasing habits so next time some film person rants about people not visiting places be reminded that this film had about three viewings in one cinema before some sequel of sequel ended up in mainstream cinema.
Pathe who made the dvd annoyed the monkey house by the film jamming during the titles at the start of the film in our dvd television and that’s with a never before used disk. Yes it meant watching on computer* which worked.
Minimalist is one way to describe this film, sound is minimal and it relies on screen gags for key points. It certainly does not paint scotland in a kind light. Its story the begining of television and the end of variety in theatres in the 1950′s is well portrayed if a little depressing at times as this is not a happy story.
It concludes with a bittersweet ending, but the genius of this expensive project that nobody got the chance to see can be found in the dvd extra of the making of it. The art of the animation is then explored and perhaps you might argue that some elements are perhaps better than others.
Technically brilliant,the story seems lengthened. 4/5 bananas.
* not very relaxing, why did I rent it as a dvd ?
imdb tt0075995 is something else and a film i miss not in rotation so i rented it, because the zoo has a crap dvd thing i had to rip the film (my blog) to see it.
Having done that (yeah dvds work) I sit down and watch this film. 5/5 bananas.
So i rent a dvd from my local library, its an old film Equus, that is was a play that in 1977 they filmed, it used to be on television until some scum-bag animal rights loon banned it.
So with silver disk i carefully insert into dvd player, i get sound and menu for the film in Catalan etc – i press ok and grind grind grind…. i get bored and also need to pee, so a few minutes pass and still no Richard Burton when i get back.
So i troubleshoot – same stuff happens each time. Looks like its time to watch it on a computer. So fuck you mpaa if you crap wont play in standard dvd player.
