It's beautiful and inspiring and everything that art should be.
Flash Gordon 1980
I expected that to be fun. I wasn't expecting it to be beautiful. My god, composition after composition, and those lush colours.
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum 2019
This one has some really great scenes, but feels the least like a movie of the three. More like another episode of the John Wick show. Which is fine, the whole is allowed to be merely the sum of its parts when it has parts like this. Like, the knives, the dogs, the museum, the book, these scenes are the most.
The glee in that knife museum fight matches the happiness of the big fan bad guy wanting to fight John. Best villains yet, very enjoyable to hate.
Axolotl Overkill 2017
I was expecting more axolotls.
Enjoyed watching that quite a bit. Couldn't make a whole lot of sense from it, but surprisingly I don't too much mind. Great texture here, moment to moment. Scenes that convey.
Hooptober 5.0: Episode 4
With live soundtrack by Chiara Kickdrum.
How good is electronic music as soundtrack for silent film? So good. Especially here, ranging from unobtrusive continuity to pumping tension and back down to dreamlike ambient.
I was surprised by the subtitles as I had assumed it was a silent film. At any rate, it was played as if it were tonight. (Should happen more often. Dialogue is over-rated.)
Also surprised that the protagonist was played by HP Lovecraft.…
