Jurassic World

1,278 words

JurassicworldI was a dinosaur kid, and it does not take much to reawaken the wonder. Thus I enjoyed 1993’s Jurassic Park a good deal, although I thought it much inferior to Michael Crichton’s book. The best thing about it, frankly, is John Williams’ wonderful music. That, and a droll little detail: “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.” I never saw the first sequel, The Lost World (1997), but for some reason I saw Jurassic Park III (2001). Read more …

Miller’s Crossing

millers_crossing_poster1,752 words

Miller’s Crossing (1990) is the third Coen brothers movie, and in my eyes, it remains their best. Miller’s Crossing is set in an unnamed Midwestern city during the 1920s. (It was primarily filmed in New Orleans.) It tells the story of Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne), who serves as advisor to two warring gangsters, Leo O’Bannon (Albert Finney) and Johnny Caspar (Jon Polito).

Miller’s Crossing has a superb script, Read more …

Blade Runner

blade_runner_xlg2,640 words

English original here

Film Ridleyho Scotta z roku 1982 Blade Runner se řadí mezi klasická díla sci-fi žánru a představuje vrchol tvorby slavného britského režiséra. Blade Runner vyniká ve všech ohledech. Jedná se o velice nápaditou vizi budoucnosti, uskutečněnou v dechberoucím vizuálním provedení. Herci předvádí solidní výkony, někteří pak až výjimečné – především Rutger Hauer jako Roy Batty. Napínavé akční scény jsou akrobatické, baletní a brutální. Klíč k pochopení znepokojivé emocionální působivosti díla však spočívá v jeho hlubokém mytickém podtextu. Read more …

Good Kill

GoodKillPoster870 words

Good Kill is an OK movie starring Ethan Hawke and directed by New Zealander Andrew Niccol, who also directed Hawke in Gattaca, the dumbest anti-eugenics movie ever made (beautiful but dumb). Hawke plays Major Thomas Egan, an Air Force pilot assigned to pilot drones in the “war on terror.” (Can we have the word “terrorism” back now that George W. Bush is no longer around to mangle it?)

Barton Fink

barton_fink_ver21,768 words

There is little satisfying critical literature on the Coen brothers’ 1991 film Barton Fink. Most viewers are inclined to think that this is because the film is a pretentious, meaningless piece of crap. And Barton Fink is surely the most widely detested film by the Coens. The fact that it swept the 1991 Cannes Film Festival, winning the Palme d’Or, Best Director, and Best Actor (John Turturro) can simply be chalked up to French perversity and anti-Americanism. These people think Jerry Lewis is a genius, after all.  Read more …

Mad Max: Fury Road

1,360 words

MM-Main-PosterMad Max: Fury Road is the fourth — and the best — Mad Max movie directed by George Miller. Miller was born George Miliotis — the son of Greek refugees from Turkish ethnic cleansing in Anatolia — and is also the creator of two other, and very different, film franchises, the Babe the talking pig movies and the Happy Feet animated penguin movies.

In Fury Road, the title character, which heretofore has been played by Mel Gibson, is played by Tom Hardy (Bane — with another grill thing on his face, no less). Read more …

Pulp Fiction in Czech

Pulp fiction17,661 words

English original here

Pulp Fiction Quentina Tarantina se řadí k mým nejoblíbenějším filmům. Nechtěl jsem, aby se mi líbil – původně jsem na něj dokonce ani nechtěl jít. Podle všeho co jsem o něm slyšel, jsem film měl za naprosto nihilistický a dosti odpudivý počin. Pak ale někdo na večírku popsal Pulp Fiction jako film o „velikosti duše na konci historie“, což mě zaujalo, protože jsem zrovna asi po tisící pročítal Platónovu ÚstavuRead more …

To Live & Die in L.A.

1,205 words

ToLiveandDieinLAJames O’Meara’s article on “Essential Films . . . & Others” was inspired by my “Ten Favorite Films,” but it inspired me in turn to reflect on my own list of essential films, essential defined by Coleridge as “that to which with the greatest pleasure the reader returns.” For many of my favorite films are not works to which I return with pleasure. Vertigo and Blue Velvet, for instance, are too emotionally harrowing to just pop in on a rainy afternoon. So this spurred me to reflect on the movies I watch, again and again, simply for pleasure: if I am under the weather, too tired to work, or just want to savor my solitude.  Read more …

Agora (Slovak)

Agoraposter091,426 words

English original here

Agora (2009) by sa mala jednoducho nazývať Hypatia, pretože nám rozpráva príbeh o Hypatii z Alexandrie, filozofke a matematičke, ktorá bola zavraždená kresťanským davom v roku 415 n.l. Hypatiin život sa kryje so zničením starovekého pohanstva kresťanstvom, takže jej vražda symbolizuje smrť celej civilizácie.

Po smrti Juliána Odpadlíka v roku 363 n.l. bol Rím ovládaný kresťanmi a to až do jeho konca. Read more …
