  1. Začetek je meseca, zato sem prisurfal mimo, da vidim , kaj se je dobrega gledalo pretekli mesec.

    Najprej hvala ker si me spomnil na The Patience Stone, ki je že dolgo na watchlist, vendar sem nekako pozabil nanj.

    Torej, Prisoners je kljub minusov še vedno top meseca? Nekako podobno ga doživljam tudi sam (videl sem ga 5-6 dni nazaj) in pravkar se pripravljam spisati nekaj vrstic na to temo.

    Malce si mi zbil pričakovanja pri Stranger by the Lake, o katerem je bilo slišati lepe stvari, imel sem ga v planu že na liffu, a potem nisem našel ustreznega termina. Podobno velja za The Act of Killing, ki ga še vedno nisem videl (imam tisto dolgo verzijo 150+ minut), zato odlašam in čakam, na kašen vikend brez obveznosti…

    The World's End je zabaven, a mi nekako ni ponudil nič preveč zapomljivega…
    Odd Thomas mi se zdi ena taka zadeva za najstnike, novi Kick Ass mi je porazno slab. Od vseh teh holivudskih me je 2 Guns še najmanj dolgočasil...

    Zaenkrat nimam nobene motivacije za Percy Jackson, Red 2, Wolverine, The Family…

  2. Naj te ne zavede ... Stranger by the Lake mi je bil všeč (skoraj zelo), a mu zaradi njegove minimalnosti, ki deluje nekoliko nedokončano ali premalo izvlečeno, (filmu se pusti prostoru ujeti v past) ne morem dati več.
    Pri Act of Killing so sprva le čudni občutki, ki pa se jih hitro navadiš - če začneš gledati na to, da gre vseeno za dokumentarec oz. film, kjer pa Act of Killing kot celota najbolj pogrne. "Posneli so svoje umore ..." hja, tega je bilo v dolgi različici filma le 30 minut, ostalo so le pogovori / izpovedi / obujanje starih in dobrih spominov ob pijači, torej je bolj šlo za marketinški nateg.
