2001 : A Space Odyssey 70MM

Today I experienced in 70mm film format the epic classic..

2001: A Space Odyssey

Last Saturday I moved to Tempe, Arizona and before that I already have my ticket for this screening because is a one of a lifetime event. Almost a religious experience.

I already have seen this film before. Also I have it in my collection…

35701239_10160550951120204_7922140148966359040_n

…but trust me, watching a film in cinemas is not the same that in your TV or your computer. Trust me!

You feel immerse since the beginning.  Since everything is black and you start listening the galactic score that set the atmosphere in just a second. I loved it.

Followed by the opening of Richard Strauss Sprach Zarathustra. Ghosebumps!

You also hear the film projector rolling like the old times. What a nostalgic feeling, so lovely.

You also have the intermission. A moment that sometimes we need in long movies because you don’t want to miss a second to go to the bathroom.

The film at the end receive a round of applause. This masterpiece still provoking and inspiring generations.  Stanley Kubrick delivered was is rarely to see in some films  todays a pure cinematic experience. Not everyone can do it. Only masters can.

For some reason every time I see a Kubrick film I feel smarter. His film stays in your mind forever. The ending of this film in theaters was insane, stills mind-blowing , WOW!

If you’re in Arizona, If you’re in any state , check your nearest screening of this masterpiece and blow your senses away.

The film was beautifully restore thanks to Christopher Nolan. 

Sorry Puerto Rico , quisíera que tuvieran esta experiencia 😦

Genre: Drama

Drama is a genre that I started to watch in my 17 years old up or so.  Is a genre that can be boring for some people, and for me as teenager I was pretty boring.

But not anymore!

Now as a mature cinephile I discover how great and important this genre is.

Is genre that focus in story, emotions, a message, real life events, biopics,  history, etc,

The Academy love dramas.

One of the greatest performance of all time was made in a drama.

History and Biopics

History drama films can serve as educational examples. Also the biopics who told the story of a iconic or not well known historic character.

Gangster/Drama

One of the greatest film of all time, The Godfather is a gangster film. Pure drama , an adaptation of the book by the same name. Have their thrills and great performances.

War/Dramas

War Dramas , even with fictional characters you can told a war epic historical story.

Romance/Drama

You’ll get heartbreak, you’ll get emotional , you’ll just get involve.

Drama/Sci-fi

Visual orgasm. This movie have a slow pace but a visually stunning experience.

Dramedy ( Drama/Comedy)

Films with more drama than comedy.

Horror/Drama

You can get bored. but you can get scared as fuck!

Political Dramas

A historical but just based in politics.

 

Maybe you can get bored but you can appreciate the message, performances, cinematography , production and all the craft behind the making of these movies. Give them a try.

Genre: Comedy

Did we all like comedy movies? Comedians? Comedy in general? We all like to have a big laugh at the theater?   I Do!

From Chaplin Chaplin a man who can make you laughs without saying a world n his films to Jim Carrey who is my personal favorite.  Is good to go to the cinema to be relax and chill. Or in you house watching a movie.

Silent Comedies

(gif from City Lights)

Who’s better than Charlie Chaplin in Silent films. Made in the silent era and I believe that Modern Times (1936 ) was made when audio production begins.

We have also Rowan Atkinson aka Mr. Beans. Who he is the only silent character in the whole movie, and he is really funny.

Is utilizing exaggeration of action , also named slapstick comedy which probably  UK has one of the greatest ever made with Monty Python and The Holy Grail (1987). 

Spoof Comedies

This type of comedy can be really hilarious if you know how to do it and also can be really awful if you don’t.  Actually one of the greatest comedies of all time is a spoof film and I’m sure you have seen it. The name , Airplane! (1980)

Here’s a clip of one of the most famous scene of the movie.

Spoof is like mocking, well the right name is parody. like another example who is a parody to Star Wars. The name is  Spaceball (1987).

And recently the animated films like The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie are kind of spoof, and they’re are so damn fun!

Dark Comedy 

One of my favorites. You can express and talk things that are not that funny in real life and turn it into something hilarious with irony and sarcasm.  The perfect example is Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). 

Master Kubrick know how to nailed it. Check this clip and you’ll see how relevant and ironic this film it is.

other example of dark comedies are The Wolf of Wall street (2013) , I think The Big Lebowski (1998) are part of of it.

Rom – Coms

Oooh the romantic comedies, I know you girls love them and I know you guys enjoy them too. I liked them. Can make you laugh , fall in love and also maybe cry.

More hybrid comedies: Horror/ Comedy, Action Comedy , etc.

 

A comedy is supposed to make you laugh, have fun and entertain. There can be drama films with comedic elements but it doesn’t mean that the movie is a comedy like for example the recent ” Phantom Thread.” 

I don’t need to talk more about comedies or be more deeper right?

Film Genres

There’e are thousands , millions of movies made since cinema born. Those movies are also different or similar to one another. Depends.

Movies are made by different styles, and different genres. Even combination of genres. for example: horror-comedy ( sounds weird ah?).  From Documentaries to dramas and action movies in any length, short film to feature film. From original  to remakes and reboot. from indies to major studios productions. Genres is like an identity to the film.

I will be talking in once a week about the different kind of genres. I love every genre they only  have to be a good movie and i’ll enjoy any.

 

Etc, etc, etc…

My 10 most anticipated films of 2018

Today is the last day of the year. So let’s say goodbye to the bad things and let’s keep the great ones, and let’s wish to greater things to come next year.

Here are the films I am most anticipated to see on the big screen in 2018.

10) Solo: A Star Wars Story

Well I am not that  much of excited to see another Han Solo with no Harrison Ford. Also I am not that interest to know his origin or background story. But it’s Star Wars and hopefully will be a good movie in hands of Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13).

9) Aquaman

Most of us love Jason Momoa’s Aquaman in Justice League and we are ready for his stand alone next year with director James Wan (The Conjuring) in helm.

8) The Incredibles 2

We have been waiting for years the Incredibles sequel.  So we hopefully expect a great Pixar sequel as or greater than Toy Story 2 and something really fun and exciting.

7) Isle of Dogs

Another animated stop motion film by Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel). Fantastic Mr. Fox is great so we hope this one will be as good as Fox. Always looking forward to his symmetric and beautifully stylish shots.

6) Black Panther

Our next stop in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Black Panther. Ryan Coogler (Creed) is directing and comes with a great cast. Phase 3 by far have been the greatest in the MCU so we are on board with the Panther in February.

5) Halloween

Don’t ask why is higher than Black Panther, Aquaman and Incredibles 2? Or why is more anticipated than Jurassic World 2? Because Is something i can’t clearly explain. The new Halloween is a direct sequel to the original and Jamie Lee Curtis is coming back! Halloween is a great movie, maybe guilty pleasure if you consider it like that, and I am really intrigue about how this film will go. Also John Carpenter is coming back to compose!

4) The Irishman

Martin Scorsese is coming back in the crime gangster genre with none others than Robert De Niro , Joe Pesci and Al Pacino. This can be Netflix’s first great movie and you know is Oscar caliber potential.

3) Deadpool 2

images

Yeah! Deadpool was a great antihero origin and a terrific comedy. Was the big push for rated R marvel characters movies with 20th Century Fox, and now we have the sequel with Josh Brolin as Cable. I expect the coolest film of 2018 with this one.

2) Ready Player One

I loved the book. I was blown when they announced Spielberg to direct. I loved the trailers. I love gaming and geekiness. The Master is coming to his roots of fun blockbusters movies again. We all love E.T., Jurassic Park and Raiders and I know we’ll see that kind of energy with Ready Player One.

1) Avengers: Infinity War

Well, Well, Well. The wait is almost over. The beginning of the end. 10 years in the making. Kevin Feige’s ambitious plan to assemble the earth mightiest heroes was achieve with greatnes with the first Avengers delivering nostalgia and dreams come true. Now they’re all joining together in this chapter to beat Thanos and the infinity Stones in a epic battle. The scope looks huge so this must better be amazing.

Avengers Assemble!
