Beeing in set-up-time to a new job, I wanted to prepare myself, while hoping for the best and went into the film:
It was anything else than politically correct, but somehow funny:

Rise, glad I searched this out. You echo many of my own sentiments.
I know this movie is about Peter and his concert, but Ana Brun only sang two songs, I think that would have been a nice start. Also, felt it lacking as most of his song introductions and such were lacking or severely shortened, except for perhaps a few. The change in the song list was weird as well, especially those missing entirely. Common Peter, we can handle a two and a half to three hour movie. Especially as most will only see it in DVD version anyway. Or are they gonna suck us into buying the first set, then come out with an extended version?
Rise, I also noticed the orchestra people being much larger then Peter in some scenes and wondered if perhaps he shot some green screen after the concert or if it's just a weird effect from the 3D technology used?
Now some likes. Loved the songs he did share. Liked the guest singer that sang in Gabrielese. Wanted to clap, and did, at the end of most of the songs. Might have got up and danced with a few, but didn't want to embarrass the Lunatic I was sitting next to.
Over all enjoyed the experience, but am happy that I went to the two concerts I did, because seeing his early concert to his middle concert to his last concert of the series, let's just say, he only got better, more in his element, as he went.

Glad to know that I was not the only lunatic who wasn't overly impressed with the movie. No worries though -- it was a fabulous movie, the sound was great and everyone looked great! However, I'd just as soon watch it on blue-ray when it's released -- am really hoping for the "full" length show this time 'round, though. (I definitely was not happy to not hear Wallflower and a few others).

Have been in the film:
The Debt( Eine offene Rechnung) with Helen Mirren.
3 young israelean agents (1 woman, 2 men) try in the sixties to bring a nazi medicine, who lives undercover in East-Berlin, to Israel to judge him for his crueltys he did in the name of science in Hitler-Germany. The outcome of this trial is in a way, that the 3 young agents have to deal with it for the rest of their life. - In the 90 they have to make a final decision.
Though I have already seen some films, that show the inderdependence between personal and political factors , the very frightening in this film was the nearby demasking of the inhuman ideology, that remained 30 years under a mask of politeness and care.This shown in an also physical very cruel way, that showed the evil intentions with no sign of regret.
A good film up from 16 years

'Melancholia' from Lars von Trier, with Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourgh and Kiefer Sutherland.
Depressed persons have an advantage, when it comes worse, would be one conclusion , I can draw from this Kammerspiel-wise film. Didn't know, that Trier has this way of intense play . It started in a Ingmar Bergmann relationship-drama, exposed on a wedding in noble surrounding, where all showed, that rigid expectation can not lead to anything good. And it ended... with the end , all painted in beautiful pictures and heavy Wagner-music. But for me it was stimmig.
Next conclusion: Relatives are importent for your kids , though they do not always do the job as you want it!

This is the real film-thread, I'll take it again.
In the meantime on the other thread:
t.b. looked Vertigo from Hitchcock, looking for the bad women...
Marilyne and Little Rainbow looked NewBlood in the Franzmann district .
And I was impressed by Straight Way from David Lynch.
Now I saw 'The 3 Musketry' and liked it, family film with many special effects like it was in the new Sherlock Holmes.
Best scene: an airship is landing on Notre-Dame!!

That's one of my top three movies. o _o I was going to be Wikus for Halloween this year (or a female equivalent), but decided that being a Splicer from BioShock would be more creative and fun.

Well, I'm sure you will be very creepy, De. Don't scare too many little kids.

My 14 yr. old wants to scare trick-or-treaters at the door this year, as well as doing a bit of trick-or-treating himself.

Woody Allen's new offering "Midnight in Paris" is rather good. Very er...Woody, very literate, touching and philosophical. I enjoyed it.
Also saw Super 8 on a plane. Ok, but quite predictable. The Super8 film angle wasn't really exploited much, it was really just a sort of teen horror thing. Not what I expected really. Very Steven Spielberg in feel tho: kids, ET, slight Close Encounters vibe.

I also liked it, OoU!
Woody Allen seems to connect his old way and his new moral insights. Not new,but in a Woody-way.
Yesterday I saw his film 'Celebrities' 1998. Quite funny, never saw it before. With Leonardo di Caprio as sniffing, gambling and messing around film-guy and Kenneth Branagh as messing around wanting to be author.
When I think about it, also very predictable script!

I saw "Immortals" last night. I like imaginitive, take me away kind of movies. It was pretty good, a TAD violent but you know it's a movie and all the "good v. evil" killings are swift and use FAKE blood. I hate the glamorization of victimization or torture...
