Post Light & Sound Are Ample Food

Hi, I'm an uncultured tit and this will be my viewing journal.

I like to think I'm woefully underversed in all things cinematic so hopefully by sharing what I'm watching and talking about what I find interesting, I might learn something. Who knows when I'll have a banner, who knows how often I'll keep this updated, and just who knows. This might end up collecting dust as a reservation on the title. Hm, anything else? Um, frisson is one of my favorite feelings and Sam Dimas rules!

I actually already have a KG account. I've been doing free leeches to prepare for when I start to know what I want.

Birth - Jonathan Glazer (2004)

I've finally been getting into Glazer's stuff since my initial interest in Under the Skin. I'm still a bit stunned it was only in the area for 2 weeks. Anyway. Glazer seems to be a game of firsts for me. His first music video is my favorite of his so far, but I still have yet to see the ones he did after Birth. His first movie I also appreciated more. The soundtrack and kinetic score and editing were very enjoyable for me. Birth was a bit more difficult. I have to confess I didn't really 'get it'. I enjoyed it at first, the opening scene with Sean running through the park and the score were very pleasant. The pullback from the bridge was very clever. But somewhere around the halfway point I just kinda lost traction with the movie. I understand it's not really about the plot, that it's more of a character study but maybe I'm not really into that kinda thing? Which is kinda strange for me because I'm usually fascinated by people and it's probably the main reason I ever watch films or TV shows. I like people. So I'm kinda stumped why this movie lost me. It even had Nicole Kidman with short hair which is like, total swoon. I just don't know. Maybe this movie is just beyond my comfort and literacy level at the moment and I'll like it more in the future. Again, I don't know. I just wanted to confess this to the internet.

I don't think Birth is very good. Its baroque is kinda tacky

The 2 weeks? Has to be. I guess no one saw it because the theater usually keeps any film around for at least a month. I could have seen it if only I hadn't decreed to myself that I needed to see everything else Glazer first :oops:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Peter Jackson (2012)

I was in a LOTR mood so I figured now was a good time to check out the Hobbit films. And it's about as bloated as I imagined. I read the book years ago and remember little but the movie would probably still be unrecognizable with all the additions. I don't know where Peter Jackson got the idea to go from "Oh, I'm never making The Hobbit into a movie" to "Let's make it a trilogy and stretch its carcass out to approximate the scope of my original trilogy." Did I mention it's fluffed out? The movie can be pretty at times though. Mostly it just bored me. I'll probably still end up seeing the rest of the trilogy because reasons.
