Hey everyone 🙂 How was your weekend?! For my weekend videos post, I have a little something for everyone. I personally found the first video very informative. It you’re interested in exploring what makes some quirky and quixotic films so good, here’s a breakdown of different styles that only the bravest pioneers of film-making have dared to embrace.
There’s a little brain teaser by TED under it’s logic/math riddles that I found interesting…I didn’t solve it but some of you who are into this kind of thing might! Give it a try 🙂
*cue bond theme* For the third video I included the opening 4 minutes of Spectre. I love the Day Of The Dead festivity, and all the haunting air of tension and suspense. Spectre isn’t my favourite Bond film, but it has easily my favourite opening scene of any Bond movie.
And lastly, this one goes out to those who haven’t seen 2014’s Best Picture winner Birdman. I don’t exactly love it, but it has grown on me a little more with a second viewing. The whole movie’s shot to look as if it has only one-take (no cuts to another scene), it’s basically like one tracking shot throughout the film. Michael Keaton is fantastic playing a washed out actor who deals with his career’s nadir, a battle with relevance and a conflicted ego. I hope the clip will eventually get you to watch the whole movie 🙂 Highly recommended 🙂
