Ριβιουπόστ #9/2012: Κλείσιμο χρόνου με Hobbits και Masters.

Λίγο πριν κλείσει ο χρόνος, μαζεύουμε τις εντυπώσεις από τις ταινίες του Δεκέμβρη, γνωρίζοντας ότι στον Γενάρη που έρχεται τα στούντιο θα ρίξουν στις αίθουσες το βαρύ εισπρακτικό πυροβολικό. Αυτό, βέβαια, δεν σημαίνει ότι ο Δεκέμβρης ήταν χωρίς ενδιαφέρον. Από το απόλυτα διχαστικό The Master, που κατάφερε να συζητηθεί περισσότερο και από το περσινό Δέντρο της Ζωής και το εντυπωσιακό στο μάτι Life Of Pi μέχρι την ολοκαίνουρια τρισδιάστατη πατέντα του Hobbit και την χριστουγεννιάτικη απόπειρα της Disney να φιλοδοξεί να ανατρέψει το μέτριο σερί των τελευταίων ταινιών της, ο Δεκέμβριος είχε πολλά να προσφέρει κάθε βδομάδα. Ένα κλικ μακριά βρίσκονται οι εντυπώσεις για τα Master, Life Of Pi, Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Perks of being a wallflower, Wreck-It Ralph, The Angels' Share, Like Someone in love, Teddy Bear, House at the End of the street και Hunter, τις ταινίες που θα ολοκληρώσουν κινηματογραφικά το ημερολογιακό έτος. Και τελικά, δεν ήταν καθόλου κακός μήνας.

12 ταινίες για τους μήνες: Η έκδοση του 2013

Πέρυσι, για διαφορετικούς λόγους (αλλά με εξίσου καλή αφορμή), το Frame Game δημιούργησε το πρώτο του "κινηματογραφικό ημερολόγιο" αντιστοιχίζοντας τους μήνες του χρόνου με μία ταινία (το concept δεν χρησιμοποιήθηκε για πρώτη φορά στην blogovision, δηλαδή). Τώρα, λίγες μέρες πριν την ολοκλήρωση του 2012, επιστρέφουμε για την έκδοση του 2013, που περιλαμβάνει από κλασικές ταινίες μέχρι κάποια από τα πιο ξεχωριστά φιλμ της χρονιάς που ολοκληρώθηκε. Υπάρχουν ενστάσεις; Διαφωνίες; Περισσότερες προτάσεις; Δες μετά το κλικ το κινηματογραφικό ημερολόγιο του 2013 και πες μας την άποψή σου στα σχόλια. Και το 2014 ψυχή έχει.

Review: The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey (48fps) (3*/5)

Ύστερα από νομικές περιπέτειες, προβλήματα υγείας και ανταλλαγές μεταξύ στούντιο, το πολύπαθο Hobbit του Peter Jackson, καταφέρνει να φτάσει επιτέλους στη μεγάλη οθόνη, κουβαλώντας μαζί του τις αναμνήσεις της επιτυχίας μιας ολόκληρης τριλογίας και τις προσδοκίες ενός απαιτητικού και διψασμένου για ανάλογη συνέχεια κοινού. Σύσσωμο το συνεργείο του "Άρχοντα των Δαχτυλιδιών"  επιστρέφει στην Μέση Γη για το παρελθόν της πρωτότυπης ιστορίας, με πιο ανάλαφρη, αλλά ακόμα επική, διάθεση και μία αναβαθμισμένη τρισδιάστατη τεχνολογία που υπόσχεται να κάνει την προβολή πρωτόγνωρα άμεση λόγω της καθαρότητας της εικόνας (τεχνική που στο εξωτερικό συζητήθηκε εκτενώς και προκάλεσε αντιφατικά σχόλια). Άξιζε, λοιπόν, η όλη προσμονή;

#blogovision 07. Julia Holter's Ekstasis (meets Suspiria)

"Waking my heart, I wait my gardens patiently. Waking my heart, I'm waiting for garden patiently." [Four Gardens]

"Oh baby baby tears. Go catch me under the door, go catch me under the door way." [Boy in the moon]

"I can see you with my eyes if I look it right. I can see you with my eyes if I look it right. Goddess eyes I found." [Goddess Eyes I]

Στίχοι από το album: Julia Holter - Ekstasis
Stills από την ταινία: Suspiria (1977) του Dario Argento.
