I don't watch TV or film. I don't believe in them.

The Barber of Siberia. Surprisingly good so far, and plays to my nostalgia of my days in the Former Soviet Union. (But damn, 3 hours long?!)

Yesterday I watched Mindwalk in one of my classes. I was expecting two hours of Liv Ullman playing the Philosophically Advanced Scandinavian Who Teaches Us All About Holism (a "magical Norse", if you will), but it was actually pretty solid for a movie that's basically a lecture with characters.
John Heard's constant pointless quotations were pretty annoying, though. :/Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

INTP friend recently showed me the film, Dancer In The Dark. Morbid/weird/good movie, I won't give the plot away. I'll pass the film along if anyone wants to watch it.

I initially thought Mr. Beeeeeehhhhhts was a nice counterbalance to some of the other characters but he wore out his welcome by the middle of the season. Self sacrificing to the point of straight up concealing truth. Infuriating character.

Yesterday, I saw Snow White and the Huntsman. And I enjoyed it quite well. The visual effects and animation were amazing and the digital characters looked breathtakingly realistic, particularly my favorite CG creature, a troll. It was possibly the most realistic organic creature since the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. And the dwarves, played by normal sized actors, including Bob Hoskins and Ian McShane, were also seamless.
In fact, my biggest complaint about the movie was the bizarre casting. Kristen Stewart would've fared much better as the Evil Queen, because she looks evil and is evil. She was certainly not the fairest in the land, for she didn't have blond hair and blue eyes. And Charlize Theron was also, for some reason, miscast, despite successfully playing villains before.
And why do the characters in fairy tale/fantasy film adaptations always have British accents? For God's sake, Snow White wasn't even a British fairy tale! And The Spiderwick Chronicles was one of the rare films of this genre to defy that convention, in which British actors played Americans.
Maybe Kristen Stewart is going for Oscar gold like Charlize Theron before her and needs to have a poor British accent added to her resume to reach the Holy Grail of acting.
Oh and yeah, Chris Hemsworth merely kissed Kristen Stewart's corpse in the movie, presumably to keep it at a PG-13.

Anyway, this was the most hilariously terrible film I've seen in a while! I actually laughed through about 70% of it because (1) Charlize was a large ham extraordinaire, and not in a good way, (2) many, if not most, of the plot elements were illogical, (3) there were a LOT of drawn-out close-up shots of both the albino guy with the Lord Fauntleroy haircut and the dwarf with cataracts, which were very funny, (4) there were a lot of
stolenhomage shots from other films, making it kind of like a fantasy genre parody, and (5) the forest fairies looked like Gollum mixed with the Ferngully characters. The other 30% of the film was made up of boring scenes involving one or other character traipsing around in the woods.
In short, it was bad, but it did make me laugh. It was a true exercise in absurdity.Artes, Scientia, Veritasiness
