Today, I'm taking a look at Godzilla's first foray into the realm of anime in my review of Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters! Will the largest Godzilla ever made crush all expectations, or collapse under its own weight?
Remarks from the Future: Ah, yes, the Big G's first major foray into the anime format. All things considered, it was as good of an introduction to a trilogy as it could be, balancing Godzilla action with the backstories and motivations of the three races. Notice how I didn't say characters. Aside from the hot-blooded Haruo and the enigmatic Metphies, none of the characters here stick out, to the point where I had trouble figuring out what characters' names were (something I didn't even realize until the third entry). The most bizarre character in hindsight was Yuko Tani. Here, she's offhandedly referred to as a childhood friend of Haruo's, though supplementary materials say that after Haruo's parents' demise, her grandfather adopted him. Here, Haruo and Yuko act like acquaintances at best, but by the next film, she's completely head-over-heels for him. I'm not saying the latter should have been the case here, but they could have had the two characters be somewhat more friendly with each other now, especially since Yuko becomes the catalyst for two major decisions that Haruo makes later on in the series. While there are a couple of signs in this film that foreshadow this development, they could VERY easily be mistaken for simple friendship.
Also, you can't market the film having the largest Godzilla ever and then suddenly have him be barely the size of his 1954 incarnation without the audience noticing something's up. The true reveal scene made it worth it I suppose.
Unlike the next film, I stand by this score, in that it was a solid trilogy starter, but not without its issues.
In 1971 Jerry Lewis set out on a quest to make what at the time he considered to be his magnum opus a dramatic film about the holocaust, in the end Jerry Lewis ended up creating one of the most talked about, never released, films in history. Lost Media Archive will be a collection of stories regarding some of the most famous and infamous pieces of media to have been lost to history.
A 2018 documentary film directed and produced by Peter Jackson. The film was co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and Imperial War Museums in association with the BBC.
The film was created using original footage of the First World War from the Imperial War Museum's archives, most previously unseen, all over 100 years old by the time of release. Audio is from BBC and Imperial War Museum (IWM) interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. Most of the footage has been colourised and transformed with modern production techniques, with the addition of sound effects and voice acting to be more evocative and feel closer to the soldiers' actual experiences. The crew reviewed 600 hours of interviews from 200 veterans and 100 hours of original film footage to make the film.
The interviews came from 200 veterans, with the audio from 120 of them being used in the film. After receiving the footage, Jackson decided that the film would not feature traditional narration and that it would instead only feature audio excerpts of the soldiers talking about their war memories, in order to make the film about the soldiers themselves; for the same reason, it barely features any dates or named locations.
The title was inspired by the line "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old" from the 1914 poem "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon, famous for being used in the Ode of Remembrance. The music was composed by New Zealand trio Plan 9, consisting of David Donaldson, Steve Roche and Janet Roddick. The closing credits of the film feature an extended version of the song "Mademoiselle from Armentières", which was particularly popular during the war.
The documentary was acclaimed by critics for its restoration work, immersive atmosphere and portrayal of war, and earned a nomination for the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary.
Julius Caesar is a 1953 epic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film adaptation of the play by Shakespeare, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, who also wrote the uncredited screenplay, and produced by John Houseman.
The original music score is by Miklós Rózsa. The film stars Marlon Brando as Mark Antony, James Mason as Brutus, John Gielgud as Cassius, Louis Calhern as Julius Caesar, Edmond O'Brien as Casca, Greer Garson as Calpurnia, and Deborah Kerr as Portia.
The film won the Academy Award for Best Art Direction (Cedric Gibbons, Edward Carfagno, Edwin B. Willis, Hugh Hunt), and was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Marlon Brando), Best Cinematography, Black-and-White, Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture and Best Picture. Brando's nomination was his third consecutive for Best Actor, following 1951's A Streetcar Named Desire and 1952's Viva Zapata!. He would win the following year for On the Waterfront.
Julius Caesar won BAFTA awards for Best British Actor (John Gielgud) and Best Foreign Actor (Marlon Brando), and was also nominated for Best Film. It was Brando's second of three consecutive BAFTA Best Actor awards, for Viva Zapata! (1952), Julius Caesar (1953), and On the Waterfront (1954).
The National Board of Review awarded Julius Caesar Best Film and Best Actor (James Mason), and it also won the Golden Leopard at the Locarno International Film Festival.
Mini-documental en el que el político y candidato a Primer Ministro holandés Geert Wilders, que vive bajo permanente amenaza de muerte, nos muestra unas cuantas "perlas escogidas" para ayudarnos a entender porqué el tema éste del Islam no termina de hacerle gracia. Vamos, que le hace la misma gracia que un cáncer de hígado.
