There's no doubt Michael Fassbender and the other cast were negatively affected by Mia Wasuckowska's very obvious acting. The whole movie was negatively affected. A lot of scenes seemed rushed to compensate for her lack of insight into the role. It's only worth seeing for the scenery, which par the main actress, was pretty awesome.

It's just sad to see so much effort by so many talented people go to so much waste...



I would not watch a movie with a race-traitor.
The BBC series is far better, I only watched it because it was on, didn't think I'd like it, but I was immediately drawn in. It's a very good adaption.

I saw The Grey two nights ago. It was alright, not Liam Neeson's best but worth the price of admission and I loved the Alaskan wilderness more than anything else.

The Search for Santa Paws

I recently watched a blu-ray copy of Toy Story 3, and, Disney being the shameless, soulless business machine that it is, I naturally had to tough out seventy or so promotional segments and features of upcoming straight-to-video-crap-o-ramas, before I even reached the further twenty FBI messages in 800 different languages informing me I faced 25 years to life if I so much as mentioned my purchase beyond the to-the-millimetre legal boundaries of my private abode.

So, of course, I approached the unskippable first two hours of my high definition experience with the above cynicism. As anticipated, wave after muddy wave of mindless drivel broke against my captive-audienced dignity until the buyer's remorse in me had swollen up to an almost uncontainable surfeit. I stood up, picked up the nearest blunt instrument and neared the source of my current malcontent with the intent of exacting swift and just reckoning. But then something happened...to me, in me. Precisely what? Well, I saw this:

The Search for Santa Paws


My jaw hit the ground. Hooked by the sheer genius of the title announcement alone, I was utterly mesmerised and compelled to sabotage my erstwhile endeavor and to plonk myself, trembling and confused at the spiritual vicissitudes unravelling within me, before the epiphany-instigating magnificence of the sensual cascade before me.

The review:

I admit, I didn't watch the full feature. The trailer alone is what I consider a self-contained masterpiece in cinema shorts. The acting, the story, the special effects, all ahead of their game. The story revolves around tragedy: Santa Claus becomes mortal. He loses his magic pendant, forgets his own name, and believes himself to be human. With this initial stroke, the film already launches us into manifold philosophical explorations of what it means to face one's own mortality, what is the self, what is identity, can introspection naturally lead to a reconnection with one's own inherent selfhood, or are we merely the artifices of our worldly squalor? At the same time, we see the humanisation of humanity's own sublimation. Our tradition, our culture -- all imbued into a single conceptual manifestation -- loses its transcendence, reveals its inner flaws and confounds the distinction between archetype and flesh and bone. Santa Claus becomes us, and we become him

Irony is deeply ingrained in the film's conceptual foundation. Santa Claus, having lost all recollection of his past, pursues a career as a department store imitation Santa. Before long, the story arc introduces a talking dog as his only companion, yet the plot clearly leads us to wonder as to the machinations of the character. Who is he really? What does he want from Santa Claus? is his ability to talk a reference to the Garden of Eden's snake? With what will he tempt Santa Claus? And it's at this point that the name of the movie cleverly intersects with the plot. Not only is 'Paws' a clever play on the similarity in sound between 'paws' and 'claus' (a point I didn't understand until my seventh viewing of the trailer, and my searches online confirm this is intentional), but it reveals yet another potential twist -- are we being misled into believing the man is Santa Claus? Is the dog the real Santa Claus? Or is the dog a psychological projection of the inner struggles of Santa's decaying sanity?

Comedic elements are top-notch, supported by a stellar performance by an ethnic midget, whose heart-melting side-story is rivalled in emotional content only by the protagonist's gripping relationship with orphaned children, through which Santa regains his lost soul in the nick of time to save Christmas day. Visually, the film is astounding. Special effects are used to create the illusion that the dog's mouth moves in time with the words he speaks (although the speech is delivered by a voice actor and apparently not the dog, as we are craftily led to suppose).

The end of the movie is unknown to me. From what I've heard, the film descends into Tarantino-esque violence in its final act, which I wouldn't recommend to parents, but since the film was made to appeal to mature sensibilities from the outset, the majority of the trailer's fanbase should be able to watch the ending legally and enjoy its artistic licence.

Rating: 0/10

A must watch!

Today I want to express a clear commendation for a true gem!

It´s a must-see film because it addresses many concerns and issues of the snobbish youth as well as shady practices and habits of the generation "Mobilephone" and "Facebook" in such a fitting, extreme and dramatic way that it was hard to bear (in a positive way). The movie connects aforementioned issues with other unsettling concurrent problems like mobbing, group behavior, rape, revenge, peer pressure, outsiderdom, ignorance and contempt of the life of others. I don´t want to tell more about it because I don´t want to spoil. The movie was directed in an artful, partially experimentalist way (but not in a way that it feels annoying, trust me) without losing the focus for realistic depiction and inter-human relations.

My rate: 10,5 out of 10! One of the many unknown pearls out there, and a great example of Australian movie-making (all actors and actresses are European White, by the way).

If you have the chance to rent it or buy it - do it!

Title: Wasted on the young

Irmin shows some promise.

The Passion of Joan of Arc by Carl Theodor Dreyer - a very rare movie with powerful music and fine actress' performance
The Daughter of the Samurai by Arnold Fanck and Mansaku Itami - the first co-production of Japan and Germany
The King is dancing by Gérard Corbiau - a very good introduction to the music of Jean-Baptiste Lully

Tomorrow night at the movies Titanic in 3D.

Love it or loath it! I love it but I do have one problem with the movie.

I love it cause it's the movie is 'Titanic' and the fact is there was no multiculturalism involved and you get to see true European culture and how Europeans behaved without multiculturalism Black influences. (I love watching movies without any multiculturalism invested poison)

The problem I have with the movie:-It is bias towards the Americans & anti British towards the British.

I saw the movie years ago on screen and enjoyed it for the most part. Yes it is good that no multiculturalism was a part of the movie at all. It showed true European character and what America use to be like even if it was from an aristocratic side. I nonetheless enjoyed that part of the history. I don't see where it's bias towards the Americans and anti-British towards the British as you say.

One thing about the movie I couldn't see correctly was a proper, Aristocratic girl from Britain falling in love with a somewhat crude character played by Decaprio. Those things just don't happen in real life. Women even with a little more money in her background does not usually fall for a poorer man at least in most cultures. Maybe I am wrong.

Well anyway the actors and actresses played great roles in the movie and made this film a all time classic. The movie was well done and the special effects were fantastic. It puts you right there with the ship going down and does a great job of showing the horror of the whole incident.

Also great movie because no blacks were in charge to save the day like so many garbage hollywood movies they make nowadays. Once in a while hollywood does it right but not nearly often enough.

Yes at first I didn't notice but after a short time I found out all the black actors seem to be taking the lead roles and there always in top positions of power. They are generals,police chiefs, always the smart ones who always seem to understand what to do at the right time where no whiteman can understand. Ahh the wonders of hollywood and it's stories of black dominance over the whiteman. Even your countryman Mel Gibson plays a nutty cop in Lethal Weapon while the black man is always under control.

Every single time I watch US movie with cops' there's always the Black guys as the main big police chief officer while the white man takes orders from him. Since when Black man can control white men in history? Since when white man takes orders from Blacks? Its total BS Jew media crap.

America has Black main actors playing the main top jobs in Movies and US has now got A black man in the top job. YUK!
