Frankenweenie (2012)

Frankenweenie

Tim Burton is one of a few charismatic Hollywood filmmakers who still upholds a strong particularity in his every work. This kind of mild idealism in bringing a different style among a majority of mainstream films may not always bring good return, like public appreciations or fantastic profits. If you track his works, you’ll understand what I’m saying: it’s about a dark, quirky, and somewhat spooky nuance of his films. This year, after bringing “Dark Shadows” into big screen, Tim Burton is back with an animation film titled “Frankenweenie”.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

On the way back home from college, right after I packed all my stuffs in my boardinghouse since I won’t stay there any longer after graduation, there went a random thought across my mind, “Ah, I wanna watch a rom-com tonight!” (FYI, rom-com stands for romantic-comedy). Well, I don’t have a bunch of rom-com films in my collection, but this “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” film was the one that attracted me most. And, there it goes.

Limitless (2011)

Limitless

There are about four or five friends of mine refer me to this film. I don’t know, I don’t like its package. For me it looks like another uninteresting sci-fi film. But at last I made a chance to watch this movie, and I tried to put out all of my preceding feeling about this movie, and I started to watch. Then, how was it going?

Drive (2011)

Drive

As one of the most appreciated film in 2011, I have to admit that it’s too late for me to enjoy “Drive” just now. Clearly, it’s surprising to know how this film could eventually made its way through as one of the nominators of Palme d’Or 2011 Cannes Film Festival (and even brought a Best Director award for Nicolas Winding Refn who was so unknown for me at that time). Yes, Cannes always brings surprises, at least for me. Haha.

Kinetic Typography

PRECAUTIOUS: This post is a random one. Well last night I uploaded a dream of mine, the one that I was busy about. It's called kinetic typography. Some called it as motion typography or typography animation. You know, it's a video (or an animation, specifically) that consisted mostly of text animating, motioning, or moving to tell a message instead of using a video or picture. Many motion typographies are made as a music video, so they put a music as a background and use the text to show up the lyrics.

Looper (2012)

Looper

Film about time-travel perhaps is not a brand new thing. This topic has been succesfully blended with many other genres like action (“Inception”), drama (“Primer”), or even romance (“The Time Traveller’s Wife”). “Looper”, seen from its trailer, is of course a mix of time-travel sci-fi and action. Then, what makes it suddenly score 84 out of 100 in Metacritic?

Death Bell (2008)

Death Bell

Again, I watched another Korean movie some days ago. Don’t ask me what kind of movie it is: since I told you that it’s a Korean movie, you may have wondered that it’s either a horror-thriller about grudge or a sad, sobbing melodrama. Haha, it’s a joke actually, but I found it true. And “Death Bell”, of course, tends to be the first category.

Perahu Kertas 2 (2012)

Perahu Kertas 2

Finally, after being kind of doubtful if I would watch this continuation of “Perahu Kertas” that I watched last August, yesterday I made a chance to watch it in the first day release of “Perahu Kertas 2” in cinema. Again, it’s kinda hard for me to find some mates I want to accompany me to watch this: some of them, in fact, sneered at this movie because they thought it will talk a lot about puppy love whatsoever that goes in a cliche, exaggerating way. Hmm, they should have watched “Perahu Kertas”.
