Cutting Edge Cinema
Blade Runner

1,818 words

blade_runnerBlade Runner opened in movie theaters in the summer of 1982 just two weeks after Steven Spielberg’s more heralded E.T., which went on to become the all-time box office moneymaker. Blade Runner, with a $27.5 million budget, took in $27 million at the box office on its first run—hardly a smash—yet it proved its worth in the long run. Almost every science fiction film made since 1982 has been influenced by its production design, photography, and special effects. A new generation of fans has materialized and the film has spawned dozens of Websites on the Internet.  Read more …

The Martian

1,031 words

MartianRidley Scott’s The Martian is a superb movie: suspenseful, inspiring, and deeply moving, with an excellent plot, fine performances, compelling pacing, and completely believable special effects. The Martian in set in the near future when space exploration is once again a national priority and manned Mars missions are regular undertakings.

On one such mission a powerful storm forces a six-man team to evacuate the planet and return to their orbiting base ship while they still have a chance. Unfortunately, botanist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is swept away in the storm and apparently killed, Read more …

Tangled, Frozen, & “Tolkienist” Values

743 words
tangled-movie-poster

Like many in the Alt-Right, I am quite suspicious of the American entertainment industry and its effects on our subconscious assumptions as a society. As Joe Biden stated, “gay marriage” is a consequence of “Jewish leaders in the [entertainment] industry” and their “immense influence” over our culture. Biden’s statement was discussed so widely because all who heard it recognized that he was speaking a seldom-voiced truth: that the progressive social degeneracy of the last 50 years is due in large measure to Hollywood and a certain class of studio moguls and filmmakers.

Look Who’s Back

er-ist-wieder-da_9438626-original-lightbox2,303 words

I do not go to the cinema all that often, but I do occasionally like to dip my toe into the global Zeitgeist being promoted by Hollywood or, less often, more or less liberal and state-subsidized European cinema.

I most recently went to see Germany’s fascinating Hitler comedy Look Who’s Back (Er Ist Wieder Da), Read more …

1944

1944_poster2,226 words

1944 is the masterpiece of the small Estonian film industry and will most likely remain so for many years to come. Released in February 2015, it is a story of Estonian men who fought in the battles of World War II that became crucial for their country. Based on the authentic accounts of veterans and filmed with the help of military experts, 1944 can be a good starting point for non-Estonians who want to learn more about the history of Estonia — and perhaps all Baltic countries.

Drive

DrivePoster1,325 words

Drive, the 2011 award-winning art-house crime thriller, is a modern retelling of the story of the knight in shining armor who saves a damsel in distress from the clutches of evil. Being modern, however, this is not a fairy tale that ends with “. . . happily ever after,” for the modern world cannot offer happiness for the heroic.

The film opens with a handsome young Nordic man (Ryan Gosling) driving through the dark streets of Los Angeles, alone in his 1973 Chevy Malibu. Read more …
