  1. Opomba št. 1)

    Za ogled priporočam:

    - Gnade. Eden mojih najbolj pričakovanih filmov se je izkazal za vsebinsko šibkejšega, vendar odlično režiranega ter čudovito fotografiranega – k temu je pripomogla tudi temačno ledena pokrajina Norveške. Vsekakor pa Glasner ostaja moj trenutno najljubši nemški režiser. Ogled priporočam v paketu z Glasnerovima prejšnjima filmoma Der freie Wille in This is Love.

    - Le fils de l'autre. Že po defaultu nerodna zadeva je tokrat prestavljena na mesto, kjer ob zamenjavi dojenčka ob rojstvu naenkrat ne pripadaš več isti veri, istemu narodu, isti strani … Kliše za soap opero, ki pa se spretno izogne patetiki.

    - Venuto al mondo. Ta se je skoraj ustavil pri oceni 7. Namreč, redki so filmi, ki me uspejo prepričati s koncem (ki je v mnogih primerih seveda le sredstvo za manipuliranje), še bolj pa so redki filmi, ki končnega »twista« niti ne nakazujejo, pa te potem vseeno šokirajo. Sliši se morda čudno, ampak prav vsakemu filmu dam končno oceno že po desetih minutah ogleda – in ta končna ocena v 95% drži. V tej ljubezenski zgodbi med vojno, so se mi marsikatere reči zdele nejasne, premalo dodelane, celo površne … še dobro, da obstaja tistih 5%.

    - 38 témoins. Psihološka drama po francosko! Odlični Yvan Attal, ki me je prepričal že v Belvauxovem prejšnjem filmu Rapt, je tokrat mornar (Le Havre (mesto s svojim čarom, in ne Kaurismäkijev film) vas pozdravlja) z občutkom krivde.

    - Som du ser meg. Tri različne zgodbe treh različnih (a po svoje si zelo podobnih) žensk. Težko bi izbral favorita med temi tremi zgodbami, vsekakor pa so veliko bolj dodelane kot v 90 minutter (žal, Goodfella)

    - The Comedy. Sundance 2012. Le pogojno, kajti »komedija« v tej vulgarni bizarki, je na čisto drugem nivoju. Tim Heidecker novi kralj holivudskih komedij?

    Opomba št. 2)

    Resnaisov najnovejši Vous n'avez encore rien vu sem gledal le do polovice, zato mu ne morem prisoditi končne ocene. No, saj veste kako je … dovolj je že 10 minut ali kako?
    V sklepnem delu trilogije prleške vampirke Vinopiri: krvni davek, bi bila moja ocena premalo objektivna, vsekakor pa vse pohvale kolegu Vitomirju Kaučiču. Podprite projekt, ko se bo krvni davek pobiral v vašem mestu.

    Opomba št. 3)

    Po dolgih letih mučenja s serijami, sem se odločil za novo taktiko. Iz Amerike se preklopil na Anglijo in glej ga: serije so postale zelo gledljive. Vsekakor priporočam Black Mirror, ki ima do sedaj le šest delov – skupna jim je le distopična bližnja prihodnost, vse ostalo je« jovo na novo«.
    Ideje glede zombijev še vedno ostajajo odprte. Dokaz za to je In the Flesh, ki se na srečo lahko pohvali le s tremi deli. Stara zgodba: sveže ideje so počasi začele upadati, vsaka nova sezona pa bo le žebelj v krsto imenovano "nikoli ne bom kulten". Ljubitelji kompleksnejših (beri: razvlečenih) zgodba bodo tako na svoj račun prišli z Utopio. Barvita teorija zarot z barvitejšimi liki, začne s časom le pridobivati na času oz. nabijati z alibijem za nove dele. Sedaj se spopadam še z avstralskim The Top of Lake in nemškim Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter. Glede na tekočo stanje bom bitko izgubil ...

    Opomba št. 4)

    Med vsemi visoko-proračunskimi akcijoneri (The Last Stand, Jack Reacher, Broken City, Mama, Gangsters Squad – vsi ocena 6) me je še najbolj prepričal Cruisov izdelek.

  2. Hehe, ravno razmišljam o tem, da bi te moral vprašati filme od katere ocene višje priporočaš pa vidim komentar :)

  3. :) za osnovno informacijo dam pod vsakim filmom tudi oceno, ki je moja in ne od imdb-ja (zaradi tega tudi prilepim seznam sem, ker ocene na moji imdb listi ne bi mogli videti, razen, če se registriraš pod mojim imenom.) Bom pa od zdaj naprej tudi komentiral oz. priporočil tiste najbolj prepričljive v tekočem mesecu. Vsakega prvega v mesecu torej ...
    p.s. na posamezen mesec lepim le najnovejše filme, aktualne na ... khm, saj veste kje ...
    Ta mesec sem bil bolj v "vojnem stanju" oz. na starih filmih z WW2 tematiko.

  4. Black Mirror sem videl le prve tri dele (1.sezona) in mi je bil super.
    Sam že malo pozabil, da so zunaj nove epizode.
    S The Top of Lake začnem prihodnji teden (epizoda na dan, ravno prav za zaključek dneva, tam okrog polnoči), me prav zanima, kaj je sčarala Jane Campion.
    Fill the Void in Inch'Allah sta delovala kar obetavno, a vidim, da ju ne ceniš preveč.
    Welcome to the Punch mi je tako kot tebi bil zanič, Le capital enako slab.
    Šanghaj in Mama cenim podobno kot ti, Venuto al mondo pa sem zaradi povprečnih oziroma slabih kritik nameraval spustiti (zdaj ga bom vseeno videl, čeprav je del magije izpuhtel s spoznanjem , da me čaka twist :) )
    Som du ser meg me še čaka...
    90 minut po tvoji lestvici ocenim 7,5. Film spominja na video-kolaž časopisne črne kronike, posnet brez ozadja, poglabljanja in razlag. Zdi se mi dobro posnet in režiran, še bolj pomembno je to, da me ni dolgočasil.
    Gnade - hvala za priporočilo, brez tvoje omembe bi ga verjetno spustil.

  5. Druga sezona Black Mirrorja je nekoliko slabša. Top of Lake mi po dveh delih diši po tipični seriji, ki se jo navadiš šele po četrtem ali petem delu. Priporočam ti raje In the Flesh - le prvi del bo že dovolj.
    Ti kratki filmi v filmu (90 minutter) imajo težavo s celoto. Če bi npr. dodali še četrti del (npr. na silo), se tega sploh ne bi zavedali oz. če bi ena zgodba manjkala jo sploh ne bi pogrešali. Prav tako me je motilo nedodelanost likov. V primerjavi z Som du ser meg, ki sem ga gledal nekaj dni pred 90 minut, so se mi liki zdeli nezanimivi, njihova usoda pa me ni ganila (vseeno mi je bilo, ko je preživela blondina in ne nasilnež). Namen ustvarjalcev - šokirati - je bil preveč cenen, predvsem pa predvidljiv. Se pa strinjam z "video-kolažem časopisne črne kronike" ter celotno distanco in zaradi tega je tudi pozitivna ocena.
