wha'?? yah don' ahn'erstahn' angleesh, guhl??http://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/shocked.gifhttp://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/smile.gif I think i got that one "What, you don't understand English girl"? yup i think i got that one. LOL some of us have associated with jamaicans and we like the way they talk.. i lived with one for years - my brit partner's sidekick.. she and my sidekick were 'deah sistah frien's' since they were nine.. we kept ourselves entertained mimicking each other.. more than one british accent/slang from my partner, perfect queen's english and jamaican patois from his sidekick, and me, with south in the mouth.. my sidekick was an english lit professor who spoke perfect grammar with absolutely no accent.. she could mimic all of us but all we could do was revile and demean her for her perfection.. i'm writing stories about those times and the dialog is written in accent so it just comes out of my fingers onto the keyboard sometimes.. you should've seen how this solarian from wales used to write in accent.. he's not here anymore - i miss him.[/quote] Welsh? that's cool, their dialect is interesting. I love how most of what i got out of that was 'Welsh'. :|
years ago me and an ex got a bootleg copy of Passion of Christ and watched it, wanted to see what all the protest and media hoopla was about surrounding that flick. Granted it was moving and had VERY intense scenes, is this flick like that movie but less blood?[/quote] Judging by the fact i never watched Passions of Christ, i have no idea but from what i heard it is the more biblical (although its....well...based on the bible) version of Passions of Christ.
not to slight the actors or anyone else but the director of photography brought this film all together.. the camera work - lighting, lenses and angles - is what held me transfixed to what otherwise would have been a fairly mundane story.. but it was superbly told - with a camera.
Well, today I read an article saying that Hollywood will make a movie about the real life of Vlad The Impaler. The movie will be based on a book written by a romanian author, so soon we will have a movie after this book. No more vampire bullshit which we, romanians, are tired of. Anyway, meanwhile you guys can watch this romanian movie about Vlad's true life made in 1982. I found on YouTube an uncut version of the movie, the video quality is poor but the english subtitles are good. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqbagKqtbAQ
The first half, of this football movie, is dedicated to the constantly annoying 'split-screen' that was so distracting I found it impossible to concentrate on the film. Every five minutes a clunky introduction of two different camera shots and the clever 'make-the-actor-cross-the-split-screen-line' was as irritating as teenagers talking during the entire movie, or an infant crying in the theater. During half time, they decided to make a change at Writer. The movie then brought off the bench as many female soap-opera screenwriters, as possible. An obvious attempt to pacify (in a condescending way) the women tolerant enough to accompany men watching a sport flick, complete with several shots of Kevin Costner in tight slacks going commando. As if that is not enough to scare you off, at the '2 Minute Warning', the movie starts throwing a series of Hail Marys. Only the most casual of fan, without reading a Draft Value Chart or knowledge of how a NFL front office works, could believe the decisions and choices made during "Draft Day". Hard to believe the NFL embraced this film. I would rate this movie as a 'Pick Six'.
It's a slow film, but worth watching. While parts of the flick fall into the "character study" realm, at the same time there is a real story there. No solid resolution at the end save for a single line, but it gets the point across. There are actions on parts of the characters that will make you cringe, but it all plays out in the end. . A worthwhile flick for a Sunday afternoon.
