The technology of the human race has finally let us truly see the marvels of what lies beneath our feet every day. I don't know how a documentary on insects could ever succeed with out some guy's deep soothing voice come in to tell us what the heck was going on but this movie proved that it can defiantly be done. Micro Cosmos actually make me feel small for not realizing what happens in the real world of insects. If you thought "A Bugs Life" was cool in terms of the technical aspects, after watching this, you will know where they got they're ideas from. I have no interest in bugs, but if youre ready to be enlightened; this will do it for you.
This was a pretty conservative video on Timothy Leary. Kind of feels like it was put together by the folks at 20/20 rather than a video put together for those who are into Timothy Leary. Forget the fact that the narrators' parents were involved with the culture. I felt like he was talking to a group of senior citizens in a quest to become hip. The videography and editing was 100% mediocre.
This was an amazing movie and can't believe the controversy. It wasn't
intended to be a documentary on the holocaust and think too many of the
negative comments completely look through the point of the movie. I
personally don't view it as a comedy but a drama about a funny and very
powerful human being who wound up at one of the camps. In order for the
movie to work at it's fullest, it did slide a little in terms of how
accurately it depicted a concentration camp but the slide did not, by any
means, give the wrong impression of the overall seriousness of the
holocaust. Consider the fact that practically all the positive comments
on this movie mention how the viewers cried at the end. It would take a
pretty soulless individual to walk out of the theater laughing
Character development was awesome. The first part of the movie was all about absorbing the viewer into the genuine and strong nature of the characters and the tight bond they had between themselves. By the time they make it into the concentration camp, your heart completely sinks.
Overall, it was a good movie but considering how long Lucas had this in
head I wasn't too impressed. I know he has an amazing mind (see his first
movie...THX 1138) but I feel like he was trying to satisfy too many
categories of moviegoers all at once. As a result the movie detracted from
The effects were very well done but aren't they always now days. As a computer animator, I feel the CG characters stuck out. They were animated, modeled and composited well but they had way too much expression in their voices and motion and contrasted with the live actors.
The acting was very mediocre. I didn't have any emotional attachment to the characters due to poor character development and have come to realize that Lucas isn't very good at directing drama. There was too much success based on faith (the force) and not enough human ingenuity.
