The cinematography and locations are beautiful. Additionally, the acting is well done and not overwrought for such a confusing genre (horror/sci-fi/drama/romance). Overall, it starts out very well before descending into an abyss of nonsense. The main protagonist runs away to Spain (which is apparently unheard of for those around him who have never heard of a passport before). There, he falls for a beautiful woman who is the byproduct of some genetic dysfunction that keeps her in constant flux. She must consume her own babies to survive the 2000 years she has lived while apparently learning nothing. However, she is able to keep this affliction at bay by injecting herself with some magic serum that immediately reverts her back into a stunning young Spanish woman in her 20's. Perhaps I got some of this wrong, but in any case, who cares! The story is so far out there that by the end you are just watching for the cinematography and some answers, any answers. None come, and credits roll. Good riddance to an awful script.
I wasted 2 hours on this trite?! Shame on me. Don't do the same.
She's Funny That Way (2014)
A replica of Woody Allen
Great film about a sexually intertwined couple who's lives are turned upside down through prostitution, love, a penchant for the unknown and a desire for something different.
I was supremely disappointing that the director basically copied everything Woody Allen has built his career on. Even the soundtrack was straight out of his play book. It seems that Wilson has gravitated towards films that Allen has or would have directed in the past only he's a much less believable character than the one's cast in Allen's former films; I suppose that's what makes Wilson even more believable though; the fact that an everyday man/woman can fall in and out of love in all it's varying forms.
The cast was seller, however the way in which their lives intertwine is definitely not something new, nor for that matter is the fact that connection/desire/love can be found in numerous ways with numerous people. But, I was left feeling that the director was implying that love is merely the desire for connection to something or someone new. It's classic Allen and if you like his films, you'll enjoy this one. It leaves one asking questions, and leaves one feeling a bit brokenhearted that perhaps all we're searching for is an honest comedy that makes us question why we psychoanalyze everything that is merely a new and interesting way to share our feelings with those around us.
Cooking among Fools
I am a huge fan of cooking shows. In fact, Masterchef Australia is one of the best cooking shows out there. The judges are kind, caring, supportive and yet demanding, inspiring and results oriented. This, along with the fact that they select the best amateur cooks in the country make for excellent cooking and cuisine driven television.
Masterchef US, however, is merely ratings based. It tends to gravitate towards idiots and cooks with anger, psychological and/or personality disorders in order to drive the pseudo drama that occurs in nearly every episode. Not only that, but these guys can't cook. If this show thinks that they are representative of America's best cooks then the producer and director need to be fired or watch and episode of 'Top Chef'.
Everything in this show is predictable and overwrought with fabricated drama including the sound effects and the comments. Additionally, these judges are ***holes. They have no empathy for the struggling home chef and all these facets create one dull drab show that is not worth its salt or the hour wasted watching this drivel. Ramsey and his two cohorts should stay abroad as they seem to have only taken on this show for the money and an opportunity to make Americans look the fool.
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
Best film of all time
I saw this film as a child and was memorized. I vividly remember the desert unfolding before my eyes and being utterly lost its silent whirl as the horizon line blurred with the murky sky. It continues to hold my attention as I watch this film nearly every year, and it seems to only get better. The fight scenes in the desert and the dialogue between O'Toole and Guinness are perfection. Lawrence of Arabia is a 1962 British drama film based on the life of T. E. Lawrence. It was directed by David Lean but the real credit goes to Robert Bolt and Freddie Young who did the screenplay and cinematography respectively. Brilliant casting and the cinematography is beyond reproach. Rarely have I seen a film that gets this much better with age. The score is amazing and you'll be left humming the tunes and shouting "AQUABA" to yourself each time you feel compelled to take charge of a situation.
