Trash masterpiece
25 May 2004 | by (istanbul,Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie is a trash masterpiece. The special (!) effects are too charming and the scenes and music is sophisticated that Star Wars stole these music and scenes from our movie.

Seriously this movie is very amateur but you cannot stop laughing while watching it because there are very funny quotes and scenes in the movie the editing really stinks .Cetin inanc and Cuneyt Arkin said "this is a serious enterpreneursihp of us to make a sci-fi in Turkey. You should prize us". He is right godsake.He is right because the movie is lord of the trashes and a lot of trashlover and amateurlover (for example Quentin Tarantino is one of the fans of that movie who even watch it without subtitles) made this movie "best ever".

But there is a serious problem with that movie about Turkey. Everybody thinks that all Turkish movies are trash. This generalization is not true like all generalization for example i recommend you Zeki Demirkubuz movies "3.Sayfa(Third page)" "CBlok" "Masumiyet(innocence)" "itiraf(Confession)" "Yazgi(Fate)" and "Bekleme Odasi"(Waiting room)and Nuri Bilge Ceylan Movies like "Kasaba (The Town)" "Mayis sikintisi(Clouds of May)" and My favourite movie ever after Mulholland Dr.: "Uzak(Distant)" which all are minimalist like Bresson or Tarkovsky movies.

Of Course There are "big movies" search and find them. I love Turkish Movies.And for Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam 9/10. "Marvellous"
