Film Advice #7: The Shining

Hey Guy’s
The christmas days won’t be long in coming but here in berlin the snow is a long time coming. But one way or another this is the time to stay at home with your family and friends, have a nice dinner and watching movies together. For this cold and dark season I’ve got the right movie for you. A horror classic. Stanley Kubrick’s  “Shining”. I love this film. I am not a fan of horror films particularly those from today but the novel from Stephen King implemented by Stanley Kubrick will blow your fucking mind.
Watch it, if you haven’t already done so.

Plot: A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

About #3: Portugal The. Man

Portugal the. Man is a indie-rock band from Alaska, USA. The band founded in 2004 and is still alive.
A few years ago, when i used to hear different kinds of rock music (hardcore, grindcore, indie, nintendcore..), one day a mixtape from Portugal the. Man has come to my attention. The Mixtape: “It’s complicated being a Wizzard” a mixture out of indie-rock, experimental sounds and electronic music, inspired me in many ways. I heard this band intense till 2009. Their albums were very varied. One was more coined by electro, another by 60’s rock and one was in a way like very good pop music. I saw them two times and there were very good, I think one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen in my life. Till 2009 i can proudly recommend all their work to you, honestly, but since 2009 their advancement gone the wrong way (commercial way) and I stopped listening. But after all I still hear their old stuff some times, but I won’t hear their new stuff. Check out Portugal the. Man.
Watch them in HD, better audio Quality, too.

Film Advice #6: The Fall

Good Morning
Inspirated by Zako Heskija’s tragedy “Yo ho ho” (1981), Tarsem Singh shows us  a unbeliveble epic story with strong and powerful images, elaborate dialogues and gorgeous locations. The opening title (see the video below) is accompany with music by the legendary seventh symphony of Beethoven. I think this is a film which you have to see twice or more to understand the messages and enjoy the images. I recommend the movie to the ones of you, who are interested in epic story about a group of different heroes, a story about revenge, about love. Enjoy.

Plot: In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.


The Fall (2006)
Director: Tarsem Singh
Actors: Lee Pace, Justine Waddell
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Running Time: 117 Min

Studio Ghibli

Konichiwa,
The japanese Ghibli studios founded by Hayao Miyazaki (every animation film fan should know this name) and Isao Takahata  in 1985. This studio is one of the famoust animation film studios in the whole world.
Known for Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke or Howl’s Moving Castle.

I think every movie from this studio is kind of commendable. Nowadays anime-productions are always made with computers but the Ghibli films are still painted with hands and later they photograph them. You will notice that when you see those beautiful images. Also the soundtrack, for example by Joe Hisaishi, of a Ghibli movie is so touching and unbeaten. I present you now a short selection of some Ghibli Studio films. Check the trailer and watch them. Sayonara

Background information: In the past, films like Spirited Away were not published at the same time in America or Europe as they were published in Asia, because Walt Disney saw studios like Ghibli as a big rivalry and tries to ban the movies in every way till they buy up Ghiblis distribution. For me shows that Walt Disney is only interested in earning money and is not interested to create art or something special with animations films. So FUUUUU Disney.





Game Check #1: The Binding of Isaac

Do you can hear the voice from above?
Usually, The Binding of Isaac is a story from the Hebrew Bible in which God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac. In this game, The Binding of Isaac is it not his father who wants to sacrifice his son, it’s his mother, which the intro sequence explains (Video Below).


This Game is really hard to handle, because when you die once you have to restart the whole game and this is one thing which makes the game so special for me. There are 6 stages with many bosses and if you have done the game with Isaac, you can start it again with other characters and items. Also every stage is different, because every level is randomly created. The design, the control and the music reminds you of the old legendary game: The Legend of Zelda (NES). I still have much fun with this game and can recommend it to all of you and this indie hit you will get for only 5 €.
Have fun, game hard.

Note: This game contains extreme physical and psychical violence.
