The Most Romantic Video Ever? Andrea Bocelli & Dulce Pontes
Topic: Movies 8:25 pm EDT, Jul  9, 2007

I'm putting this under movies, because even though it is a short video, it sums up romantic love better than anything I've ever seen....and my husband agrees. :)

This trailer has a LOT of footage for the new Harry Potter Movie. It is looking dark - and I'm glad!

The Spartans and 300 Handsome Men~!
Topic: Movies 12:27 am EST, Feb  5, 2007

Here is the 300 site - This is a movie that I am DROOLING to see coming out in March. It is basically about the Greek city state of Sparta.

Well, I just love Ancient Greek culture, but 300 handsome cut men is a big draw for me too.

These men all have to be in top shape, and the trailer does a pretty good job showing off their bodies - but a video journal shows how they got them ready for the movie.

Intense workouts - but different every day. The rubber band sprints look brutal to me. Some really good insight into exercises designed to make a man look seriously cut.

Ok - if you want to see that part with the training (its flash so I can't give you a direct link) - I think you will like it -

you go to Making 300, then video journal - then Spartan training.

THIS is an AMAZING movie - Tony Takitani

If you like High Fashion....
If you like Japanese culture...
If you appreciate Fine Filmmaking....
If you love good acting....
If you like Depth......
If you love Shoes....
If you like a movie you can DISCUSS...

This movie might be for you. I thought it was a mere chick flick. I was in the mood for one, and LORD KNOWS I am also a recovering high fashion fanatic who owned over 100 pair of shoes at one time.. So I picked this title up. It looked like it would be a pure chick flick.

So I was suprised when my husband decided he'd watch it with me.

We both watched the movie, without getting up. It was not stressful in any way to watch- no nudity, no obsenity, and no violence that I recall.

It was refreshing - it is a really good movie that is so humble and touches on such depth of feeling that I think we all have - loneliness and love, attachment, fear of loss, emptiness, and fulfillment. Daily worries - how could THOSE things make a good movie?

But in this director's hand, a simple, elegant story is presented as a work of art. I did not even realize watching the movie that the 4 main characters were played by 2 people. The acting is THAT good.

The movie made wonderful use of what most techies might call 'white space.' Lingering shots that made the design fall clearly and cleanly into place. Detailed attention was paid to the excellent lighting and the thoughtful desaturation.

2 days later, my husband is still enjoying. We find ourselves talking about the characters and the symbols in the movie, and I'm sitting here wanting to share it with anyone who might read my blog. :)

I think it is definitely worth a rental price because it is the type of movie that helps you focus on those things that enrich your own life. It is art.

It would also be an excellent 'date' movie for a mature relationship.

Review and Rant - DaVinci Code
Topic: Movies 11:59 pm EDT, May 21, 2006

I saw the DaVinci code today with my ten year old son. We both loved it. We were delighted that so very much of the movie was in well spoken Latin. The movie is subtitled for those that have unfamiliar with the language. If subtitles bother you, you may not like this movie!

The movie is much more violent than I perceived the book to be. Though there is violence, there's very little gore. It was well presented, enough to give it some punch but subdued enough with the blood to maintain its PG-13 rating.

It was refreshing to see this was such a CLEAN movie - very little harsh language, and very little nudity.

The movie WAS long, but it did not drag. My son did not once wiggle, or go to the bathroom. When the movie was over, he said it was "VERY GOOD" as compared to Narnia's being "OK."

In the theater that I was in - for a Sunday matinee- there was considerable applause at the end of the movie.

We did not see the 911 preview that some people have complained about. We did see a preview for The Omen, opening 6-6-2006.

Now, for my rant. I personally am sick of all the fiction/nonfiction controversy over this movie, except for the fact that it is driving more people into the theaters. In all the debunking of the book that I've seen/heard, I have YET to hear anyone really address the ugly history of the Catholic Church that is presented in this movie.

For all the chatter about Christians being uniformed of Biblical history, or history of the early Christian Church, the truth is that our populous is more informed that ever. There are millions of people that actively seek out and read the Gnostic gospels and look into the history of the Church. It is all available online - just a Google away - even the newly revealed Gospel of Judas.

There is something very unsatisfying about Christianity for a lot of people. While it is true that the masses do need their opiates, and that the Church is that for many, there are a lot of people who are not intellectually or spiritually served by a cracker and some grape juice. There are many that do not even understand what the word Gnostic means - yet they intuitively sense that some higher teaching has been left out - there's something to Christianity that they just don't GET. Between the people that are looking for THAT, and people that have a disdain for the authority of the church, and people that just love crypto and puzzles - you've just got one wide audience that is willing to enjoy and consider such a theory as this movie provides.

To argue over what the templars did or didn't do, or what blah blah blah did - WHO CARES? I have not yet heard the church respond to the DaVinci code by acknowledging how many Gnostics that they killed to preserve their power. They did. So much was secret back then - there was no real communication of such things as the massacre of the templars to the genera... [ Read More (0.2k in body) ]

I don't really know what topic to put this under - but I've never seen anything like this woman! I think she might be related to elastigirl or something.

Alexander Movie review
Topic: Movies 9:42 pm EDT, Aug 13, 2005

I liked the sets. I saw balls. WOW, hardly ever see a mainstream movie with that much male nudity in it at once.

I liked the way it portrayed Greek sexuality overall. Level headed portrayal of the role of religion in Greek life as well.

Good battle scenes overall. Loved the elephants, they were quite impressive.

Some of it just ....drug....and drug on...and the exact nature of the 'mother conflict thing' was not as clear as it could have been. I didn't like all the forwards and backwards time jumping. I think it would have been better if it had been a straight forward in time narrative.
