This is the origins of The Slender Man. I figured because of the popularity it has gained recently, it’s time for a history lesson with your teacher, DoH. Sit down students, we shall now have a class discussion. This is long as hell I’ll put a read more tag.

Game of Thrones backs you against a wall and corners you then pushes you to the ground and steps on you. It then slices open your stomach, rips out your intestines and rings them dry before devouring them but first wedging open your eyes and forces you watch. And honestly you don’t want it to stop. In a sick twisted heartbreaking way this is possibly the most perfect piece of pure escapism ever put onto screen whether it be small or cinema.

This totally sucks.
I’ve been neglecting my video editing/creating tendencies, but now I totally have a great idea for a series!
The problem: My idea is super super effects driven.
So, tomorrow I will start speed-learning effects.
I’ll be leaning through the tutorials on Adobes website along…

The New ‘New Wave’ of Today?

A while back I read an article on the group of four filmmakers who were dubbed the ‘New Wave’ of Cinema in the 1970’s saying how they changed cinema forever and collecting something near 38 Oscar nominations between them.

That was nearly 50 years ago and cinema, and the audience have changed immensely. So who would be the ‘New Wave’ of the 21st Century? Who are the four filmmakers that pop into your head when you think of the best directors in 2014? I think it’s safe to guess that the majority would think of at least one of these four.

I could make a whole other category of film makers for the time between Spielberg’s heyday and now that could include: Robert Rodriquez, Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Kevin Smith or another including James Cameron, David Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson and Peter Jackson or Tim Burton however I’m talking as recent as film goes and the directors that have had a similar impact as the New Wave did in the ‘70’s. 

Francis Ford Coppola is most famously known for his masterpiece and follow up: The Godfather and The Godfather Part II… There was The Godfather Part III as well but not many people know about that one. David O’Russell is most famously known for his unofficial trilogy that he has released over the last few years: The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Another similarity is the highly controversial and troubled war film productions of both Coppola’s ‘Apocalypse Now’ and O’Russel’s ‘The Three Kings’. Both directors also sharing a key trademark of brilliant period cinematography and getting unbelievably strong performances out of their cast, (here’s looking at you Marlon Brando and Jennifer Lawrence) making them stars and resulting in some unforgettable human stories. 

George Lucas, love him or hate him, is undeniably one of the most influential director’s on the planet and undeniably genius. His product Star Wars has stretched it’s influence into every form of Pop Culture possible, like many of the ‘New Wave’s’ films, and is still my favourite film of all time today. JJ Abrams, needless to say shares similarities now announced and well under way with Star Wars Episode VII. He is also known for his wild imagination, lens flares and sometimes to some people ruining a beloved franchise with a sequel. 

Steven Spielberg is one of the first men behind a camera to become as famous as the stars he puts on screen; He is a household name even today still churning out strong oscar nominated films. He brought cinema out of a dark place and made it fun again during the high point of the Hollywood glamour years. Some might argue that he be the best Director not only of his time but of all time. That’s where Christopher Nolan comes in. Nolan took a franchise that had been put through the ringer and not come out well and not only turned in a fantastic film but started a revolution of the way films are made and watched. Spielberg and Nolan both love to test the limits and boundaries of cinema and you can tell in their work that they to love to watch films as much as they do making them. They also share no shortage of twists, turns and moments of pure weightlessness in their work and with no shortage of demand for films from both these directors, they are both deserving. 

Martin Scorsese once quoted that the next Scorsese would have to be Wes Anderson, so this one is not up for debate. However in saying that, it’s not like it’s not deserved. If you have ever seen a Wes Anderson film, which few sadly have, you will know it is his by his trademark cast, camera techniques and consistent cinematography. If you have ever seen a Martin Scorsese film, which is sad if you haven’t, you will know it his by his trademark cast, camera techniques and consistent cinematography. Whether it’s Bill Murray or Robert De Niro, a centred tripod or a tracking shot or a vibrantly coloured hotel or a shadow soaked city, you know that it’s going to be a good one. 

There is an endless amount of directors and films out there, some good and some bad. There is also an endless number of groupings you could do with: The ‘Pioneers’ led of Charlie Chaplin or George Méliès or the generation coming just before the ‘New Wave’ with team captain Alfred Hitchcock. This could change quickly by a new kid on the block or a complete career turn around (M Night) but until the new generation rises this is what we have and I think it is safe to say that we are in good hands.

Godzilla (2014)
Director: Gareth Edwards

We are just over the halfway point for the year and boy has it been a slow one!

I have seen quite a few movies this year, not as many as I’d have liked, but overall the films that have been released have been incredibly disappointing. But in saying that… Godzilla. Is. Awesome.

I loved the 1954 Godzilla (Gojira) Japanese Classic and was actually one of the first films I truly loved. I really fell for the idea of a monster with a heart and throughout my movie-watching life I have been influenced by the original. I, like all true Godzilla fans, have seen many of the preceding films and laughed when he fought Mothra and cringed when he was with Matthew Broderick but this one truly deserves to be on the same podium as the original.

I heard about this when it was first announced at Comic Con a few years back and followed it closely and eagerly. The trailers and promotions with all the posters and art they released just excited me even more and at the start of the year this was right at the top of my must see of 2014 list. I saw this, begrudgingly, in 3D and while it wasn’t spectacular it did a fair job and I really can’t complain. I would even go as far as saying a few scenes may have actually benefitted from it. 

The film itself is a gorgeous blend of handheld grittiness and big swooping blockbuster-esque shots that just made the whole production feel as big as the King of the Monsters himself. And he is big! Godzilla is huge and although not exactly the star of the show, unforgettable. 

However, I didn’t leave the theatre without complaints. Through all the giddy moments and an ending as good as The Usual Suspects, Godzilla isn’t the star of the show. He is literally only in it for probably 40 minutes. The original ‘MUTO’ monsters he is battling have the next biggest part of screen time as underwhelming as they are and then the Humans do. And no, not Walter White… Humans that we don’t care about. That’s where this film lacks. I couldn’t shake the feeling this was just a bigger budget remake of the Directors previous film Monsters. 

But in saying all that, I loved the film! Best of the year so far? Hell Yes! Best Godzilla Film? No. Oscar Winner? Probably not, maybe a few technical nominations. Highly recommended to people who don’t hate big budget blockbusters and are just looking for an awesome, entertaining experience at the cinema. 

Rating: 3.8/5
