    The French Film Festival at Manuka

    I've just been to the French Film Festival at Manuka. And now I know what I want to be when I grow up - French.

    For the French have not only perfected Latin but they have perfected the sense of humour.

    Now all we have to do is retake Calais and all will be right with the world.

    Lame

    I've just seen, "Clash of the Titans", at Manuka.

    It is a literal interpretation of Ancient Greek myth.

    So during the movie I wondered what is a literal interpretation.

    And a literal interpretation is contrasted with a metaphorical interpretation.

    And a metaphorical interpretation is a comparison of relationships. So necessarily a metaphor stands on two relationships. Or we might say a metaphor stands on two legs, while literalism stands on one leg.

    And so literalism is literally lame.

    12 Angry Men

    We watched this last night. My boyfriend swore up and down it was the greatest film ever, but I think what it would make is a great play. Because the movie takes place in one room the entire film, what really shines is the talent of the actors and the argumentative brilliance of the script.

    An Education

    This movie bothered me on a deep level until the end. It was too uncomfortable watching someone go through the motions of being young and naive (not to mention lacking all appreciation and understanding of the value of money, hard work, life). The end gave me the huge sigh of relief I never expected. I thought she’d hang herself.

    Good movie. 94% fresh? No, but worthy of its place on our bookmovieshelf.

    I've just watched "Death Proof". The first 40 minutes I was like: "Why the fuck am I watching this movie?" The beginning was so boring. Nothing happened! Well, anyway, after 40 minutes the story gets better and the ending was awesome! I especially liked the music in it.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    Vertigo

    My boyfriend is obsessed with what he calls “classic whodunits”. Last night we bought and viewed Vertigo, which had been long-awaited.

    Amazing. During the movie I recall him saying “It’s good but I don’t see how it got 9th greatest film of all time (according to the American Film Institute),” but soon thereafter we discovered why!

    Up In The Air was well made and well acted, but the end disappointed me... I like happy endings

    i watched the film "Once"

    about some hipster musician whos hustlin on the streets playing his acoustic guitar and meets some chick.
    its a bunch of BS.
    theres 2 cute parts that last all but 5 minutes total and the rest of the film is completley filler. its like an indie music film, but they use the same song for about half of the film and the rest of the music is pretty subpar.
    ironic, i think ill only watch "once" once.

    I know you think I'm crazy,
    but most people they can't tell.

    Alfred Hitchcock's "Rope".

    It explored the concept of Nietzsche's "übermensch".

    Fascinating debate!

    Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca".

    As Rebecca is of my favorite books, I was hesitant to watch the film. It turned out to be a masterpiece wrought with talent.
