Melodia saptamanii (141)

November 02, 2011 By: WeeGee Category: Film, Melodia Saptamanii, Muzica

Asta e o combinatie intre “Melodia saptamanii” si un… movie review.

Good and interesting (to say the least) movie… but not your ordinary something-plex getout-with-friends flick. You’re better off with an animation or easy comedy. Filmul poate parea (sau chiar este) plictisitor, cel putin pana la un moment dat, nu are character development, curge incet dar este presarat cu scene extrem de violente insa simple si veridice (people die fast, aici nu exista un Ciac Noris care sa se lupte singur cu 400), alterneaza scenele tampe si in slow-mo (dar si astea au rolul lor) cu cele rapide. It’s a bit of a cult film, although it’s new… si, desi nu pot sa il bag intr-un gen anume (don’t be fooled by the name or the photos, this is not a racing film… it’s more like a weird crime one), acest film, impreuna cu toate ingredientele de mai sus, fac(e) ca cinematografia sa fie in continuare cu adevarat o arta. Scenariul este bine adaptat (The Driver – 1978) iar regia este la inaltime, un fel de mix intre Tarantino, Aronofsky si von Trier (o fi ceva cu regizorii danezi…). Ciresica de pe tort o reprezinta soundtrack-ul. It’s quite special, desi la prima vedere nu prea se potriveste cu filmul ci mai degraba cu originalul, fiind mai in ton cu vremurile de atunci. Scos din context e o muzica pe gustul meu (as zice faina… but who am I to say…), un blend intre M83, Moby, Royksopp, Daft Punk si 80’s electro-pop pe de o parte, si Angelo Badalamenti pe de alta (din ce am auzit ar fi avut ceva legatura cu coloana sonora), intrucat trei sferturi din soundtrack e muzica soft-mellow-creepy (unlike the one below). The cast is up there too: Ryan Gosling, Bryan Cranston (hell yeah!), Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman. Enjoy listening (and watching, if you choose to do so).



I’m a Little Megastar Myself…

June 25, 2010 By: WeeGee Category: Life, Personale

…after one year since the passing of THE megastar… This year I’ve put aside the personal grudges (from which I had nothing to gain) I had with some key jerks, assholes and shitheads in school, also put aside the laziness, took particular things much less seriously then I did before (which was a good idea) but took things more seriously as a whole, and did what I should have done a couple of years ago… at least. There’s just one more small step to take (which in itself is a big one but it’s almost formal) and it will be over… and on to a new chapter… This year I’ve left aside quite a lot of vanity for a little bit of perfection… and it was worth it…
