I've been watching the Rambo movies. Something that struck me odd though is the required "suiting up" scenes. It's like...
<Que dramatic music>
Loading bullets into a magazine...
<Hell yeah, it's on!>
<Aw ye... wait, what? Tying shoes?>
<What? I do those everyday>
Do we really need to see basic dressing skills?
- it might of been good but i wouldn't know it because it bored me so much that i couldn't pay attention. i actually got angry at how boring and pointless most of it was.
Technically impressive camera movement for the time and its sense of movement and atmosphere is great because of it. What is lacking is a city in a larger sense, as the entire film is restricted to the facade of an apartment block. It's also overpopulated and loses focus of its leads, which weakens the emotional punch it should have.
Man of Aran
A step up from Nanook of the North, away from the informative and into the realm of poetic beauty. It's much more visually satisfying and desolate than its predecessor, and although it can't be called very eventful, I see it as a sort of a continuation of the city symphony film that appeared near the end of the silent era.
I watched One-Eyed Monster. I'd post my livetweeting session but I think I might get banned for the stuff I said :P

Read Dead is a bad video game
