The Fifty Greatest Cult Movies of All Time

The Fifty Greatest Cult Movies of All Time

EL MEJOR ANIME DEL SIGLO XX (Spanish) Reseña complicada, de las más complicadas que he tenido que hacer en este blog. Esta serie larga, es densa y es compleja, pero decir que la recomiendo sería quedarse corto. No es un anime que recomiende. Esta es una serie que ya no solo dignifica el normalmente infravalorado mundillo del anime elevándolo hasta cotas inimaginables, esta es una "obra" que trasciende géneros, como lo trascienden los grandes libros o las grandes películas. Esta es una serie se eleva por encima de cualquier tipo de nacionalidad, formato o prejuicio. Es cultura, arte, refinada en su más disfrutable forma. Así pues, comienza mi reseña que, como es previsible tras tan grandilocuente primer párrafo, no será corta. Legend of the Gallactic Heroes Comenzaré por los defectos, que son pocos y casi inevitables. Y ahora pasaré a las virtudes de este anime, y en las más de 50 horas que lo componen (110 OVAs de unos 25 minutos) hay espacio para muchas virtudes. Por Ernest Mecklinger. Por Ernst von Eisenach.

Princess Mononoke Princess Mononoke is a period drama set in the late Muromachi period (approximately 1337 to 1573) of Japan, but with fantasy elements. The story follows the young Emishi warrior Ashitaka's involvement in the struggle between the supernatural guardians of a forest and the humans who consume its resources.[2] The term "Mononoke" (物の怪 or もののけ?) is not a name, but a general term in the Japanese language for a spirit or monster; a closer rendering of the title into English would be "The Mononoke Princess" or "The Spirit Princess". Princess Mononoke was first released in Japan on July 12, 1997, and in the United States on October 29, 1999. It was the first Studio Ghibli film to be a major hit outside of Japan and began Ghibli's worldwide attention. Plot[edit] In Muromachi period Japan, an Emishi village is attacked by a demon (祟り神, tatari-gami?). Soon after, San infiltrates Irontown to kill Eboshi, but Ashitaka intervenes, knocking them both unconscious. Cast[edit] Production[edit] Themes[edit]

Dream Big by Peter Fecteau “Dream Big” was a year-long project in which Pete created a mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes. > My Fair Lady (1964) - Articles My Fair Lady (1964) Phonetics professor Henry Higgins bets a colleague, Colonel Pickering, that he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney street vendor, into a duchess simply by teaching her to speak proper English. Pickering accepts the wager and Eliza agrees to the challenge because she desires to improve her station in life. Higgins invests all of his time and energy in Eliza's transformation with the final goal of passing her off as an aristocrat at the season's biggest social event. Director: George CukorProducer: Jack L. Why MY FAIR LADY is Essential In 1964, for one of the few times in his career, Warner Bros. studio head Jack Warner personally produced a film - My Fair Lady. Warner had fallen in love with the musical version of George Bernard Shaw's classic Pygmalion when he had seen its New York opening in 1956. The latter was hardly an issue given the time lavished on assembling just the right production package. In casting the female lead, however, Warner was intransigent.

L.A. Zombie L.A. Zombie is a 2010 queer cinema zombie film written and directed by Bruce LaBruce.[2] It premiered in competition at Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland in 2010. The film exists in two versions, an hour-long one that was showcased at various festivals and theatres, and a one-hundred and three minute hardcore cut released on DVD. Plot[edit] An extraterrestrial zombie (who may just be a schizophrenic vagrant, and whose appearance constantly shifts between that of a corpse, a tusked beast with irregular genitals, and a normal man) emerges from the sea, and begins making its way to Los Angeles. The zombie reaches Los Angeles, and after perusing shopping carts full of discarded objects, ventures to the L.A. The zombie steals some clothing, and finds the dumped body of a gang member who was shot in the head. Cast[edit] Production[edit] Release[edit] On January 30, 2010, the film had a sneak preview at the Peres Project Exhibit in Berlin, Germany as part of the show L.A. L.A.

Sketchbook Secrets: 50 Beautiful Sketchbook Scans The sketchbook is—to borrow a term from the new millenniums’ popular discourse—an artist’s BFF. It’s a diary for the visually inclined—a place where artists can most comfortably explore their personal thoughts, work out their visual needs, practice, maintain a visual history, and hopefully create the unpolished work that will eventually lead to amazing work for the world to see. But, sometimes, when we’re lucky, we get to see the process. Below are 50 beautiful sketchbook scans from 35 talented artists.

5 World Changing Decisions (Made for Ridiculous Reasons) Rome wasn't built by accident, and Hitler didn't decide to invade Poland on the flip of a coin. Society is shaped by powerful men with a vision, for better or worse. Well, mostly. The Mayflower Lands at Plymouth Rock for a Beer Run Everyone knows the Pilgrims settled in Plymouth because they were searching for a place that would let them practice religious freedom (and that wasn't the Netherlands). The Arbitrary Reason: Actually, it was about beer. "It's not beer, it's just a rock!" The more standard story is that the bad weather made navigation almost impossible and people were getting sick, so they had to stop somewhere. "We could not take time for further search or consideration, our victuals being much spent, especially our beer" -The First Goddamn Americans (1622) Since beer was boiled, it was cleaner than what passed for regular water at the time and therefore safer to drink (especially during long trips). The World-Changing Consequences: As did their obsession with beer.

How to Travel Full-Time for $17,000 a Year (or Less!) Wise Bread Picks For the last five years, I've been traveling the world full-time, and for less money than I've ever spent (and I'd wager less money than most people would spend) to live in one place. My worldly possessions fit into one bag (just larger than carry-on size) and a backpack containing my laptop and computer gear. In 2011 alone, I traversed 13 countries and over 45,360 miles. What if I told you it wasn't? Believe it. How to Keep Your Travel Costs Low Of course, I could travel for way more than $17,000/year. Here are a few of my secrets. Don't Pay for Accommodations In the entire year of 2011, I paid $173 for accommodation. Work-Trade/Volunteer There are lots of creative opportunities to work in trade for your accommodation (and sometimes food) and enjoy a more immersive travel experience.

'Avatar' Is Horribly Written, Way Too Long, Totally Worth It I'm Going to See Avatar. What do I need to know? #1. The movie is almost three hours, so if 3D makes you want to yack, bring a paper bag. #2. #3. Uh... what? Yeah. So, he finally did it. Nope! Oh god... --and then the film becomes a bugfuck-insane adaptation of Dances With Wolves. OK, you're fucking with me, right? Again, no. Jake is asked to infiltrate the tribe living in a giant tree directly above their Unobtanium haul. Jake is more than happy to do so, mostly because he's a dumbass, but also because it means he gets to inhabit an Avatar: A cloned body of a Na'vi that he can operate from inside a tanning bed. While Jake's in the jungles of Pandora, a giant space-panther almost eats him, but he's saved by a Na'vi girl named Ney'tiri ... Oh Goddamnit, when will somebody stop letting James Cameron make up words? Not this year, apparently. This is not appreciated by the company's military leader, a man so masculine that just looking at him makes Nick Fury's third eye cry. Fuck politics. Right.
