Admin’s comeback

Hi everyone !

Now look, I know it’s been ages since I uploaded anything. Thing is, I just had such great ambitions when I created the blog and wanted it to be all perfect. Then I realised I couldn’t manage to give enough time for it because of the studies. That’s why I will be changing a bit of the blog’s policy and try to keep its original objective.

The weekly selection won’t be weekly, I will jsut post one when I feel like sharing, otherwise I’m forcing myself to produce a list every week.

Second, I will also comment songs or types of media other than movies from time to time.

Third, the analysises might get shorter but I want to express my feelings upon recently finishing a movie to keep enthusiasm of a viewing still fresh in mind. Otherwise I plan too carefully and tend to search in vain for ideas that I didn’t think of at first.

Having said all this, I want to thank the followers if tehre are any and excuse myself for leaving such a long period of time without giving any news.

Sincerely yours ! Enjoy life !

It’s been a while since the last animation I’ve seen. But here I am, reblogging Kellan Foley’s post because I thought the animation had really been well put together. I found that the synergy between image and sound to be particularly beautiful. The animation doesn’t have too much or do too much, its simplicity is captivating.

Here is a link to Disney’s Paperman full animation

Have you seen this yet?

Paperman is Disney’s Oscar Nominated short film/animation. They have only just made it available on their official YouTube channel and it is most certainly worth watching. For those of you too lazy to go to YouTube, don’t worry, I have it below.

Ironically enough, the retro, almost hand drawn style of the short animation was achieved through a new animation software package called Meander. This allowed animators to actually draw over CGI enhanced backgrounds.

What Disney have managed to create within six minutes and thirty-five seconds is refreshing and offers a new and well needed alternative to the generic slog of modern-day animation out there. But that’s not to say that all animation is terrible and neither am I ignoring the fact that Disney are partly responsible for releasing their own fair share of less that adequate films in recent times.

Anyway, rant over now. So…

Introducing the blog and myself

First of all, thanks for visiting my blog. This is actually my first blog and the idea was to comment and review movies I’ve seen. This idea has been suggested by a friend of mine.

I believe, every movie, like every song or book, has been written and produced for a reason, therefore, no movie should ever be considered useless or unworthy of existing. I created this blog in order to promote movies I’ve seen and admired. I dearly hope that I will succeed in giving you reasons to watch these movies.

In my posts I will comment the movie briefly in a spoiler-free paragraph. After that I will review the movie, as well as developing my personal interpretation of elements I found interesting. My goal is also to promote a perspective, beyond simple viewing, that allows the viewer to enjoy a movie as a fine piece of cinematographic art instead of anticipating specific characteristics from the movies according to a horizon of expectations that follows the principle of commercial movies.

Let me warn you, I am not a professional critic; I am just an amateur, fond of movies. Thus, my reviews being only the reflexion of my own point of view. And so, please enjoy my blog ^^
