Total Balalaika Show

Concert film (or a "rockumentary") about the 1993 concert of Finnish rock band Leningrad Cowboys and the Red Army Choir on the Senate Square in Helsinki. Their performance was so awesome that I just have to give this film six points out of five and let you see what I'm talking about:

Last time I went with friends and we got all dressed up. The best fun you can have. ^^

That delicate satin-draped frame
As it clung to her thigh
How I started to cry
'Cause I wanted to be dressed just the same.

Well, last night I was up late and watched a movie from 1977 by William Friendkin named...

SORCERER

- And yes, it was awesome

So awesome I almost overslept and almost did not get to work in time, but it was worth it.

A great remake, even better then the original.

Story? Four guys with different backgrounds in South America, driving two trucks with nitroglycerin to a burning oil well and blow it up. Action, thrills and good soundtrack. All I need.

Oh and yeah

I saw Saving Private Ryan a few days ago

This movie is awesome and I will go screaming "La la la la la" really loud if anybody says something else and refers to the historical inaccuracy in the movie. Frankly, my dear. I don't give a damn. The action in this baby is so awesome it's almost hard to describe. Truly shows that Spielberg was, is and always will be the King of the Movie Brat Generation.

How a man can turn such a bad script into something this good is for me a mystery.

Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
Easily comparable to Snatch, probably even better. A masterpiece by Guy Ritchie. Everything, from the pictures, to the music, to the fantastic one-liners.
One of my all time favourite movies

10/10


The Football Factory
Fantastic depiction of the book with the same name. Danny Dyers is PERFECT as the cockney chelsea football fan. It really feels like "this is for real".
Depsite the title, there is never any football in the film (other than glimpses of a junior team playing)
It is a bit short, which is one of the downsides with it. However, if it were any longer I feel that it might just be repeating itself.

8/10
I see were you are trying to reach: "how can a 17 year old kid have such a thinking like this? why doesnt he wants to be like normal teens who whana get rich? and his plan actually makes sense, but is too damn revolutionary and good at the same time than is still doubthfull if it works..." - Damaso

Hmm I was going to record that, looks good, hopefully they'll reshow it soon, crossing that bridge in the clip looked mad!

I try and record obscure films from Film on 4 when I can. Recorded Cabaret last week, last years of pre war Germany in a music club,wasn't my kind of thing but had a great song I hadn't heard of before, made out to be a H.Y. song but apparently written well after the war.

Yeah the bridge scene was amazing, that scene and the music was a great combination!

Anyhow, just watched Season 4 of "It's always sunny in Philadelphia"

My new favorite show, keeps growing for every season

tell me about this woman, who has a bren




El alamein

9/10

Great movie bout the war from the italian point of view. You can see its a low budget film, but that doesnt matter. Good acting, very good morale behind the movie. It really captures the italians during WW2. They simply dint want to fight and they dint had the means and equipment to fight.

sure the Patton tanks presenting Cruiser tanks and the M113's presenting brengun carriers was a bit odd, but a  good 9/10 for this movie

-i am fairly sure that if they took porn off the internet, there would only be one website left and it would be called bring back the porn "Perry cox, Scrubs.

2012 (2009 film) by Roland Emmerich
Starring John Cussack and else.

on local theater
It is a movie about disaster. Well, just pretty entertaining, but it is typical disaster movie but with more global involvement and grandiose scheme. A lot of inaccuracies in the movie (well, science fiction ya know), and they are so typical Hollywood, just remembers you to the successful Transformers and many other science fiction movies from Hollywood, which contains too much inaccuracies but just entertaining. The explosions are a lot smaller than the actual (guess he never watched real volcanoes erupt, i should know... Indonesia has 1/3rd of the world's total). The plane physics, the natural phenomenon... well, this is not UCLA geology class, it is cinema anyway.

I gave this movie a nice 5.5/10, i increase them a bit, because i am not critics, and i watch movies partially for entertainment purpose, not over analysing it. In addition, it also pass a good message too i guess.

Empires of The Sun (1987) by Steven Spielberg
Starring Christian Bale, John Malkovich, etc

on TV premiere
One of Spielberg's classic masterpiece. Although a bit puzzled by its somehow complicated plot, i quite enjoyed its coherent progression. I like movies with cohesive and complicated plots at once, this one is for example. The story is about a British boy's adventure, separated from his parents in WW2 China when Shanghai was occupied by the Imperial Japanese troops. As a typical upper class boy, he has to endure a lot of typical war situations and a lot of miseries.

My rating is pretty decent 8/10, i love this movie very much. It is one of my favorites when i'm not maniac or such (actually, i love Big Trouble in Little China when i was crazy). Moreover, i am biased because this movie also carried WW2 theme (Pacific particularly) that we all love so much.

The Last Emperor (1987) by Bernardo Bertolucci
Starring John Lone, Joan Chen, Peter O'Toole, and Victor Wong (that Egg Shen guy from Big Trouble in Little China!)

on TV premiere, repeatedly
This is a movie in epic proportion IMO. I like this movie very much, IMHO, the best eastern-themed movie made by the west. The music is so well composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Byrne, and Cong Su. The title actually is the main story of the movie, the last emperor of China, who is the last to rule the nearly 5,000 years old empire. It revolves around Pǔyí, the last emperor of Qing (Manchu) dynasty and his journey from throne ascension to his death and its relation with modern China. Of course, as so many Hollywood movies, you still gotta excuses a lot of inaccuracies here and there for dramatisation purpose. But i consider them minor in this movie anyway.

I gave this my highest rating yet, 9.5/10, just slightly below perfect to acknowledge its inaccuracies and typical Hollywood-only added romance. The plot is just as complicated, and some of them are backwards, but it is pretty understandable. No wonder it won 9 Academy awards and BAFTA award for best film. Also, i'm biased in this rating because it depicts WW2.

Great CGI and special effects.

Loved some of the conceptual design in the film.
