The movie, people, the movie! *tons of historians are putting down their pitchforks*
Pweh!


On with the review then )
nessaniel: (kuromi rage)
Hier kommt er nun, mein Gegenrant zu Suchslands interessanter, negativer Kritik zu Peter Jacksons „Der Hobbit – Eine unerwartete Reise“…

(Stellt euch bitte vor, wie ich mit leuchtenden Augen davor hocke und jedes bisschen Gift und Galle, die dieser Artikel in rauen Mengen spuckt, wie Balsam für meine Seele wirkt… es ist zu köstlich…xDDD)

Da ich die eine Hälfte des Internets nun wieder aufstöhnen höre, dass es doch völlig sinnlos ist, sich auf langwierige Diskussionen mit Trollen einzulassen, vor allem solchen, die absichtlich mit Nazipolemik und Tatsachenverfälschung um sich werfen – ihr habt natürlich völlig Recht.

Aber ich schimpfe nun mal so überaus gern, cholerische Anfälle als Hobby werden meiner Meinung nach immer noch völlig unterschätzt und überhaupt gehört Suchsland der Kopf gewaschen.

Und wie sagte schon John Barrowman: „If we cannot achieve equality in an Internet poll about fictional characters, the real world is pretty much screwed.” ; )

Rant beware )

Maaaaan, Freunde, das hat Spaß gemacht. Zum Ende hin wurde es mir etwas zu langatmig, was der gute Herr da von sich gab.

Ich betone noch einmal: ich rege mich nicht über diesen armen Irren auf, denn dafür er ist viel zu lustig in seinen wilden Anschuldigungen.

Was mich jedoch aufregt und mich dazu verleitet hat, mir dieses Stück Schund vorzuknöpfen, war die bodenlose Frechheit, die dieser Knilch an den Tag legt, indem er behauptet, dass, wer Hobbits und Zwergen und Elben gerne zusieht und sich in ihre Rollen hineinträumt, sei ein Einfaltspinsel. Es ist immer wieder das Gleiche und es ist so zauberhaft zu sehen, dass sich nicht nur vierzehnjährige Mädchen sondern auch volljährige Männer im Internet nicht an die einfachsten Regeln halten können: don’t tag your hate. Oder, für die Bambi-Liebhaber: Wenn man nichts Nettes/Konstruktives zu sagen hat, einfach mal die Fresse halten!

In diesem Sinne, bis zum nächsten Rant! =D

Was mache ich eigentlich die ganze Zeit, außer mein Gehirn auf tumblr weichkochen zu lassen? Himmelherrgott die Zeit verfliegt...xD 

ABER DAS IST MIR GANZ EGAL, DENN ICH WAR VORGESTERN MIT PINKULEIN IN DER HOBBIT (2D Version, wir sind old-school!) UND OHHHHHHH!!!! Ich möchte die ganze Zeit nur rumbrüllen. Es ist solch ein wunderbarer Film und ohhh Q__Q Ich kann kein Review dazu schreiben, ich würde am laufenden Band in Tränen ausbrechen, wirklich. Ich war am Anfang äußerst skeptisch, weil HdR bei mir aufgeladen ist mit den Emotionen und der Nostalgie MEINER GESAMTEN KINDHEIT UND JUGEND von daher dachte ich eigentlich, dass der Hobbit es schwer haben würde, da auch nur annähernd ranzukommen. 

ABER DANN BÄMM, DIE ERSTEN ZEHN SEKUNDEN FLIMMERN ÜBER DIE LEINWAND UND ICH KANN PLÖTZLICH WIEDER FLIESSEND ELBISCH und erneuere meinen Plan, eine Reiterin von Rohan und Eowyns beste Freundin zu werden. Und Eomers Ehegattin, aber lassen wir das. ;DD

Der Film ist sowas von bombastisch und umwerfend!! Diejenigen, die im HdR-Fieberwahn waren (vor mehr als 10 Jahren. VOR MEHR ALS 10 JAHREN OMG OMG OMG OMG), die werden sofort wieder hineingesogen nach Mittelerde, sie sitzen sofort wieder in Bilbos Hobbithöhle und lauschen den Erzählungen und Liedern von Drachen, magischen Schätzen und längst vergessenen Schlachten. WOAAAAH. 

UND ES SIND SOVIELE BEKANNTE GESICHTER WIEDER DABEI! OHHH!!!! ELROND BEING BADASS AND STUFF? AHHH GREAT Q_Q Und überhaupt, die ganzen Anspielungen auf die Trilogie sind wundervoll und man freut sich wie doof, wenn man eine Location oder einen Dialog oder eine Kamerafahrt ODER EINFACH AUCH NUR DIE MUSIK WIEDER ERKENNT. <333 
Viele haben ja vorher darüber geklagt, dass der Hobbit wohl kaum Stoff für drei Filme liefern würde und das könnte der arme kleine Roman wirklich nicht. ABER TOLKIEN HAT JA NOCH ZIGTAUSEND ANDERE SACHEN VERFASST und oh mein Gott, es ist für einen Mittelerde-Fan absolut traumhaft zu sehen, was alles Erwähnung findet und wie viel Details in allem steckt (und wenn ich noch einen höre, der sich über das Lied und die Szene "Tut, was Bilbo Beutlin hasst" beschwert, dem stopf ich persönlich das Maul mit einer Romanausgabe vom Hobbit. GRAAH) und die Zwerge, oh mein Gott, die Zwerge. Q_Q Nachdem ich mir in "Die zwei Türme" die Degradierung Gimlis vom tapferen Krieger zum Spaßmacher antun musste (SRSLY JACKSON NOT COOL), war ich umso froher zu sehen, was sie alles aus den Zwergen gemacht haben. OHHH THORIN (you hot piece of dwarf, srsly) OHHH Q_Q Gott und Fili und Kili und wie sehr die Zwerge füreinander da sind und wie sehr sie ihre Heimat wiederhaben wollen und ja. I AM DROWNING IN HOBBIT FEELS.

The boys are back! Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team of war-worn veterans and delusional nut-jobs with big guns and even bigger mouths get together for another promising job that of course doesn't go according to plan and instead of enjoying their respective lives with wifes or girlfriends or chemical engineering they go on a bloody journey of revenge, avenging everything in their path while mouthing off loudly to their opponents - and each other. Can they save the world from the evil hands of a cruel mastermind Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme)?



YIPPIEHAH YEAH SCHWEINEBACKE, wall of text incoming )

Gotham City is on the brink of war again, eight years after the death of Harvey Dent and the fall of Batman. Eight years and Bruce Wayne hasn’t left his home or put on the cape and helmet, watching Gotham wither and die. But when a new evil arises – masked villain Bane – it’s time for Gotham’s one and only hero to make his big comeback and go out with a big fantastic bang.

Once upon a time… an evil queen kills Snow White’s dad, keeps Snow White alive for about 8 years until she decides to kill her nonetheless, but Snow White runs away and then she gets hunted down by the Huntsman and then they meet dwarves and then they fight off the evil queen’s minions.

Yeah I'm gonna be ranting )

The annual "Hunger Games" are about to begin in the dystopian society of Panem (North America after a really bad and shitty war) and young Katniss volunteers to save her sister from the fight to the death between 24 boys and girls from the twelve districts where only one can survive. Together with her friend Peeta she tries to struggle through the horrible fights and the arbritrariness of the mass media that stage the Hunger Games as a big reality tv event.

I must say, Etihad Airways has a really nice collection of films and since I was stuck in that godawful machine right next to the king of snorring himself for twelve hours I had all the time in the world. And really buying a ticket for a flight to Tokyo isn't that much more expensive than going to the cinema. xD

At first I tried to watch "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" (the original version) but after the first shot to that office party I was on the verge of crying so I moved on to the following.



Oh come on I couldn't pass up on this one, not with that title )

The next one was this and this is really a horrible poster for the film was quite nice actually!

Why am I watching this oh my God I'm such a whore )

Btw: this is part one of my project to review at least fifteen movies in 2012 (Avengers does count as 10 movies), so you can await a year full of ranting and screaming and obviously those reviews are not going to get me into film school but it's all in good fun. =D
nessaniel: (kermit yay)
Because I need a break from writing my term paper (writing one and a half pages is stressful!) I watched "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" while eating the delicious bento pinku made for me (rice, meat, omelett, cookies, cucumber and maybe I should have taken a picture before hand...). 

God, I love that series: not only because I am all hyped up for the upcoming Avengers-movie (which I crave so much that it won't be able to fulfill my expectations at all but oh well xD) but also because it is an awesome cartoon show with decent animation and lots of snarky oneliners thrown at each other and ohhhhh it even passed the Bechdel-Test (in the first episode only mind you and we only have one female main character (Wasp) but she kicks ass!!! and I really should stop complaining about how badly women get treated in media we all know it by now jadda jadda).
Anyways, it's awesome because of how well developed the characters are: they take time out of the episoded to show how lonely Steve rogers (Captain America) is, they even give him cheesy music to create the mood and argh I just love everything!  
Tony Stark (Iron Man) is one of a kind, really. He is absolutely wonderful and snarky and I love how he always tries to justify himself because he knows what an ass he was in the past and is willing to prove to everyone how he much he changed. 
His relationship with Hank (Ant Man and yes I still have to laugh everytime I see him in his costume xD) is especially heartwarming: both of them are scientists though Tony is more of the "shoot first ask questions later and ohhh if you stole any of my tech I will vaporize you!!!1111!" type of a guy and Hank is always the therapist: "Let's talk about your childhood problems, psychotic villain of the week trying to take over the world or Manhattan, y/y?" 
It's awesome. For example:
Hank: So, Tony, if you fly in there and take out the sound vibrator it might... tingle. A lot.
Tony: Okay. *flies in* THAT'S NOT A TINGLE THAT'S HORRIBLE PAIN!!!!!
xDDDDD Oh my God I love stuff like this, really. xD 
Thor is also portrayed nicely (apart from the fact this his hair looks like golden tinsel), he is not superstupid but delightfully clueless about modern technology. I can't say that much about him because there was only one episode focussing on him so far but he is a really good character.  Bruce Banner (The Hulk) also has his moments: he is the strongest of all (at least it seems so) but also the most insecure and the Jekyll/Hide-moments when the Hulk talks with mirror!Bruce are pretty deep for a children's tv-show. 
So yeah, I will waste more time on this cartoon than on my termpaper but that's hardly a surprise. ;D
nessaniel: (bored scootaloo)
Okay, so I just finished this book. And it was.
I don't know. 
It took me like two months to finish it which is a horribly long time for some 570 pages and I had to read the second "Monster High" in between because it was just too... depressing and boring sometimes. 
The book is about the life of an Arabian family in Palestine during the 1920s to 1960ies, it was written in 1984. 
It covers a lot of historical and political information about the "Nahost-Konflikt", how it started, how the British guys behaved during it (badly. Oh so very badly), how the war tortured the poor and weak and powerless who don't really care who is there to rule them. 
Combined are the experiences of one specific Arabic boy whose father is a famous and powerful leader among the Palestine people who goes from "stupid, chauvinistic dimwit" over "at least he is capable of learning" to "resigned old man who fought for everything and won nothing". Oh and he kills his daughter because she defies him after 20 years of being the typical Arabic daughter.
What this book taught me: Arabian people usually the men are cruel, lazy, complain a lot, are only interested in sex and killing their next kin, would never show any kind of compassion for anyone and are responsible for their own misery.
Yeah, awesome moral, don't you think?
This book shoves every cliché about Arabian men and women into one family only and plays them totally straight. 80% of this book are about sex or hatred, how the Koran is forbidding the first and fueling the second, how the first one drives everyone crazy (the final breakdown resulting in his death for the main character is - after he fought against whole nations single handedly, lost and overcame this mindcrushing loss - that his daughter isn't a virgin anymore) and how the second one is the only driving force for the Arabian people because they are in no way zelaous or want to do anything for their "country". 
Whereas the Jewish people are downright saints and although I can understand that to a degree (he only describes extraordinate people like generals and very open-minded Jews) it's just incredible how biased this book is.  Arabs are bad, Jews are good and although the author tries to explain why the Arabian people are like that - it just doesn't come off as critical enough: he repeats himself over and over again, (the point about sex and hatred) and sometimes, he just feasts on cruelty (rape, murder, massacres) conveying a message for the maybe not so educated and well-read reader (which in all arrogance, I claim to be, because I researched about Middle East conflict after  I finished that book) that Palestine, Saudi-Arabie, Egypt and all the other nations are cruel places where no one wants to live and no one should ever desire to go there. Especially women come off as pitiful people - which is also understandable to a degree because being a woman in hardline conservative muslim families can be incredibly hard. But still, it's just too much sometimes. 

All in all, I surely wouldn't reccomend this book to anyone who wants a well thought through look on the developments in the Middle East but maybe you should read it and form an opinion yourself - maybe I was too stupid to see the more subtle tunes in this book. 
Imho, it was a lenghty, sometimes shitty and paianful read, occasionally better because of the 1001-night-esque descriptions of wealth, but that was it. 

Blahblah, I'm off to bed now. Maybe with a Monster High book. 
nessaniel: (tommy und merton slash)
Okay. Deep breath. Where to start.
Really, I need to focus because everything I want to do right now is to scream, stomp my feet and watch my face doing this funny thing between laughing and crying. Oh and I would like to burn the rest of Dumas' corpse so he won't be able to rise on Judgment Day and will be spared this... thing.

Read more... )

Before you start reading this review: go, watch it. Seriously, you should not need be convinced to see it because if you are interested in cartoons, awesome voice directoring and a very well written story, go watch this movie immediately - you don't even have to like Thor! *_*

Oh God, people, I've spent so long on this entry, just because I procrastinated learning Japanese. I am dead now. And full of Loki love!
nessaniel: (sakura mokona)
 Mwah. 
Yesterday I went to a movie-night with friends. We watched "Prince of Persia" which had shitty quality but was adorable nonetheless ( I still LOVE Tas more than Dastan, I mean, why would I want to become a princess when I could also marry the king? ;D) and then we decided to watch "Southland Tales". 

Watch the misleading trailer
I am just not made for movies like this. It wants to be a satire or take a dark-comedy look at US film-industry but it... I don't know. It doesn't make sense at all, it is way too long (2 hours 15 minutes for fuck's sake I had classes that seemed more interesting than this film -.-) and if you want to play with mythology... do it, go ahead, but stay consistent because it just won't make sense otherwise. 
Oh, and movie you have no idea how much I hated you for the Justin-Timberlake-music-video you had to put in the middle of the film. 
Maybe I am just too stupid for films like this, maybe I don't get all the subtle allegories or the allusions to other movies. Just, a movie that is not making the least bit of sense on its own without a gigantic explanation immediately following  is not a good movie. And seriously guys, dystopian characteristics are sooooo 1984. Big brother is watching us, yes, we know, thank you...

But it seems that  this movie is generally either hated or loved by critics and viewers. xDDDD

After that pinku and I watched "Wanted" and even though this movie too has many flaws and inconsistencies I enjoyed it much more than Southland Tales. This might be because I love McAvoy to death xDD It's just... you can care about the characters in this film, even if they are just briefly introduced and clichéd and you know where to go from here and the fourth-wall-breaking is a nice touch and... well taste differs, doesn't it. <3 

Anyway right now, I try to get my hands on two Rammstein-tickets (Warteschleife since two hours, but I won't give up hope =D) and enjoy my free-time. =D

Auswahlgespräch hinter mich gebracht: lief minder. Lag aber zu 100% an meiner nicht vorhandenen Vorbereitung. xD Scheißegal, jetzt isses vorbei und ich hab den Kopf wieder etwas freier. Bin ich froh, wenn die endgültige Absage/Zusage kommt, damit diese Rumwarterei ein Ende hat.
Tatort-Gelaber )
Gut. Nachdem ich heute nun Japanisch geschwänzt habe, weil ich wirklich gar nichts konnte, werd ich mich nun anziehen gehen und meinen ehrenwerten Mitbewohnerinnen irgendwas kochen. Und dann endlich mal in die Puschen kommen und Weihnachtsgeschenke kaufen. *seufz* XD
