Heroes of the East


Cal's Heroes of the East is a regularly updated blog about the kind of movies that often get overlooked or even totally ignored amid more mainstream fare. His focus on Asian cinema and martial arts, with the odd diversion into other areas, means that he has carved out a unique area for himself on FilmJournal that's consistently informative and entertaining.

Sadako 3D 2

Garbage. Awful, just bloody awful and senseless and dumb movie and I dare say it shows the state of Japan’s movie industry today where films are made to the standards of TV quality which is pretty damn cheap here. These days a vast majority of films released by Japan are often sequels to TV dramas shown here. If not that then they are movi...

Top 10 Films to be Snubbed for Best Picture at the Oscars

When thinking about the ultimate top 10 films list it is easy to look at the Academy Awards and its past winners for inspiration. But just as best film lists differ from viewer to viewer and critic to critic, so do the great films in the eyes of the Oscars. Indeed, when looking at the Best Picture winners since the Academy Awards first began, you b...

Sight & Sound Greatest Films 2012: caption competition

‘I'm sorry, Mr Welles: there's been a Hitch…’ The Sight & Sound ‘Greatest Films’ poll for this decade has now been out for a couple of days, and already it seems too late to discuss it. However, that may not stop me putting my oar in. (Spoiler: I plan to call it ‘The Wrong Hitchcock’.) For the time being, the picture and caption...

Football As Never Before

To Be The Best... Saturday, September 12, 1970. A watery northern European sun lights a crisp autumn afternoon at Old Trafford, where a crowd of 48,939 fans of Association Football have gathered to watch Manchester United of the English First Division play Coventry City. It was also the day where Hellmuth Costard, one of the most important ex...

ripashe filmin ne nje ore e gjysmen e fundit te tij. E drejte, si dhe Stalkeri, Veronika eshte ne film per te thene te vertetat. Ajo thote te vertetat e veta (jetes se saj), te vertetat e atyre te dyve (Aleksandrit e Marise), dhe te verteta me te pergjithshme te filmit, ato te monologut te famshem. Me habit ajo sepse vulnerable por me kembe ne t...

se harrova: dramat energjike (siç i ke quajtur, por e kuptoj cdo te thuash), jane nje keqkuptim ne kinematografi. Jane influenca me e keqe e teatrit. Asnje prej te medhenjeve (Ford, Hitchcock, Ozu, Antonioni, Murnau, Godard, Cassavetes, Fellini,... etj etj) nuk ka bere 'drama energjike'. Biles edhe Bergman, qe ka qene ne origjine regjizor teatri ...

nese memorjen e kam te mire, skena e fundit eshte ajo kur Aleksandri i shkon nga prapa Veronikes, tek dhoma ku ajo jeton (ne spital). Dhe vendos te jetojë me të Megjithate, ka nje skene tjeter nga fundi i fimit (para monologut te famshem prej 10 minutash te Veronikes) : e kam fjalen per skenen qe mbaron me lyerjen me buzkuq te Aleksandrit nga ...

gjithashtu, ka edhe shume 'unrest' ne film, nje shqetesim keshtu. Personazhet kerkojne, eksplorojne, provojne, por kam pershtypjen s'dine se ku e se cfare duan te gjejne. Shume te trazuar jane. E tille eshte koha mbase? Perse eshte ashtu....

edhe pse desha te dal shkurt, u mbush nje faqe. Dhe e folura ime ka per te qene e konformuar ( si pasoje e filmit) :) Prisja tjeter gje, ndonje drame energjike. Filmi ka emer te madh dhe mjaft superlativa. Jo se nuk i shkojne, por une prisja t’i merrja ne nje forme tjeter kurse ato erdhen ndryshe. Sidoqofte, kam kete eksperience: po te bej dy...

A mundet stili të kthehet në vizion per botën?

po, eshte, ka 3-4 jave(per fat te keq, se di qe s'para te pelqen kjo menyre). Shtoj gjithashtu se jam dakord me perfundimin ne 'review', filmi eshte vertet vetem nje pershkrim, gje qe nuk te con asgjekundi. Eshte shpenzuar tere ai art i bukur dhe energji per te mos na thene thuajse asgje. Ama edhe une, prandaj e shoh, per keto arsye siperfaqes...
