Waltz with Bashir - Ari Folman - animated moovie
Increidibly good and intelligent.
Very good music, written especially for the film by Max Richter.
Beware anyway, it is an autobiographic story which took place during the Libanon war. Not to watch if you're in sad mood.
"The separation of Nader from Simin") 2011 Iranian drama film written and directed by Asghar Farhadi,
another good one
War Horse - Spielberg
Not one of the best, but beautifully filmed (the British Devon countryside)
At the end the picture saturated with red reminded me of "gone with the wind" when Scarlett picks upa handful of Tara's earth. Funny.
Next one will be
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
2011 American drama film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer, directed by Stephen Daldry (the hours, Billy Eliott)
I did love the book.

Speaking of Bashir, the former Dr. Bashir from Deep Space Nine, Alexander Siddig has had a very respected movie career since DS9 ended.
He was very good as the doomed moderate Saudi Prince in George Clooney's Syriana.
He plays a very romantic character in Cairo Time When did he grow up to be so sexy, compared to the DS9 doctor who used to play spy games with O'Brien in Quark's hollow suites.
He is an excellent actor and in the movie you wish he and Patricia Clarkson had gone all the way in their relationship.
Great romantic movie, it got wonderful reviews.
Cairo Time (2009)
Patricia Clarkson Juliette Grant
Alexander Siddig Tareq Khalifa
Elena Anaya Kathryn
In Cairo on her own as she waits for her husband, Juliette finds herself caught in a whirlwind romance with his friend Tareq, a retired cop.
As Tareq escorts Juliette around the city, they find themselves in the middle of a brief affair that catches them both unawares. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

Nick Cave finished the script in three weeks.
The Proposition (2005)
A lawman apprehends a notorious outlaw and gives him 9 days to kill his older brother, or else they'll execute his younger brother.
Nick Cave (screenplay) ...and the Bad Seeds and Grinderman
Ray Winstone, Guy Pearce and Emily Watson
The wardrobe was handmade to be as authentic as possible and even the buttons were all handmade for the film.
Nick Cave finished the script in three weeks.
Originally, John Hillcoat approached Nick Cave about doing the soundtrack for a Western, eventually he asked if Cave would write the screenplay as well.
One of the gunmen in the Burns' fort at the beginning is named "Jack Bradshaw". Although the movie's plot was fictitious, there had been a real 19th century Australian "bushranger" (outlaw) by that name.

I watch movies at lunch, here at work. I have temporarily moved my office into the conference room for our department, so that we can use the computer-projector on some large projects we are working on.
Added benefit, I get a "cinema screen" to enjoy my film viewing on...
Last couple of weeks has been:
The Firm - Tom Cruise at his best. Just a wonderfully acted and directed film, with that fantastic, simple soundtrack....and I love films that portray a situation that is all apple pie and ice cream on the surface, yet underneath is a dark, evil under-belly.
Hoosiers - Gene Hackman and Barbara Hersey just rock that film. I normally am not into basketball, but I really enjoy the small town / David and Goliath underdog tales...kind of reminds me that old basketball film with Robbie Benson...can't think of the name...but I really enjoyed it.
This week I am back to "Wall Street." Seems I never tire of those performances..."Gordon Gekko" and his Greed is Good attitude...the fresh performance of Charlie Sheen and his father...the excellent soundtrack (a lot by Stewart Copeland) just solidifies the moods set by the Oliver Stone captured moods and situations...

Saw John Carter a few weeks ago. Was actually pretty good, but agree with a lot of people that the title probably kept people from seeing it. Perhaps thinking it was some boring documentary?

watched a beautiful Korean film called Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Obviously with sub titles but the cinematography is pure artwork and the pace is beautiful, if you can try and catch it, its a beautiful film you wont regret it.

Prometheus - Ridley Scott
rise10 June 2012 at 9:18amPosts: 956 (0 today)Status: offline
by Cary Fukunaga with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Faßbender.
Fascinating pictures in this new version, always cut, when it got too emotional
( as one can see in the deleted scenes) .
The end is a bit dissapointing, not only by the story, but Rochester had a beard and I would like an end , where the now-rich Jane pulls him on her white horse!
All in all a story about how virtuous women can drive a man mad.
Very good:Michael Faßbender, who loosed a bit in the besides interview and Mia Wasikowska, who remains the same there.

Okay folks, this is the old film review , just have some time to bring some order into the things again, because of PG and a bit Bob Dylan. ( They canceled my may-freedays , but I had to go(of course!))
Now I saw this film' To Rome with love' by Woody Allen and thankfully with Woody Allen himself again with a georgious idea for all hobby-singers, who fear the stage:
The idea is coming later!
