Harakiri review

Posted : 5 years, 8 months ago on 14 April 2013 02:03 (A review of Harakiri)

I'm personally a big fan of stylized violence, you should always try to make ugly things beautiful. And this film certainly does do this. Definitely the best best non-Kurosawa Japanese film.

Kind of Blue review

Posted : 5 years, 8 months ago on 14 April 2013 01:59 (A review of Kind of Blue)

Kind of blue is basically a jazz album for people that don't know much about jazz. It's a good jazz album, but it's certainly not the best.

In defense of Avatar

Posted : 5 years, 8 months ago on 13 April 2013 08:25 (A review of Avatar)

Many people have criticized Avatar for the fact that it is merely a retelling of the old white guilt standard: a man (a white man) goes into a native population, falls in love with a native girl, and adopts aspects of their lifestyle, eventually this draws creates conflict with his people. It's the same story that was in Dances with Wolves, Pocahantus, Last Samurai, and even Fern Gully. The only difference: blue indians. The reason I don't have a problem with this is that all throughout human existence, there have been some stories which we retell over and over again: the star wars movies are just mythology in space, There will be blood is Citizen Kane with oil, and every single Tarrantino movie is just a giant composite. That doesn't make it any less good. And anyway, Avatar has cool effects.
