G’s November Top 5 Movies

G’s November Top 5 Movies

Since this month Ghirardelli (i.e. me) wants to write a new line in this blog. During this month I‘ve seen lots of interesting movies (“Toy Story 3”, “Harry Potter 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7” (yeah still have not seen 2nd one), “Totoro”, “Spirited Away” (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi) (2001), “Irreversible” (2002), “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (2009)
“Megamind” (2010). Here is the top 5 of November.

5. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (2009)

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

(Swedish: Män som hatar kvinnor, also known as Men Who Hate Women in English). It is a film adaption of a novel with the same name by Stieg Larsson (Swedish). Is a first book of his Millennium Trilogy. I like this movie with its interesting detective story. However it has its sick moments such as the rape scenes, but I guess it is normal for being a European movie.
A quality of video is amazing, because most of the scenes seems to be more like macro/close-up photography with a changing focus.
Rottentomatos’ tomatometer rates it 86%.
The critical consensus is: “Its graphic violence and sprawling length will prove too much for some viewers to take, but Noomi Rapace’s gripping performance makes The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo an unforgettable viewing experience.”

4. Megamind (2010)

Megamind

Megamind

Animated superhero comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and Red Hour Productions, and distributed by Paramount Pictures. If you want to relax and spend a good time with a family/friends – this is really it. Grab you all of them and don’t be greedy to buy a tickets for 3D seance, ‘cause it is really costs it. Story simple and truthful regarding heroes.
Rottentomatos’ tomatometer rates it 69%.
Critic Frank Wilkins tells: “The lively cast and interesting flip on the superhero concept make it a fun time at the movies for all ages.”

3. HP 7 (2010)

Harry Potter 7

Harry Potter 7

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” Part 1 (2010)
Epic fantasy film directed by David Yates, written by Steve Kloves and based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling.
I am surely not a fan of this movie/novels, however this one I liked. And in this part I finally see the good play of Emma Watson, ‘cause in previous ones for me it was more like an antics. Only one time during of the film I lost some parts of the conversations, when the old woman on the wedding was talking I was lost in thoughts about her make-up, is it really – all old ladies use so vulgar a make-up, but then I was back when remembered a queen of UK. And I was really sad when the Dobby was killed by Bellatrix. Ah, and I am pretty sure each girl dreams to have small hand-bag with big capability like Hermione does.
Rottentomatos’ tomatometer rates it 79%.
James Plath: “It may be the scariest, but it’s also one of the strongest in the series.”

2. Spirited Away (2001)

Spirited Away

Spirited Away

Spirited Away (千と千尋の神隠し Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi?, literally, Sen and The Spiriting Away of Chihiro) is a 2001 Japaneseanimated fantasy-adventure film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli. One of the coolest greatest fabulous cartoons. Amazing in story and creating way. And it is so true about it: Many of episods become understandable after repeating watching of the film. In generally I’ve seen it before, and this year already a few times. But I am waiting when I get the original dvd in English right now have Japanese/Spanish version only. The Takahashi Korekiyo residence in the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum was an inspiration for Miyazaki. Anyway when I see it it seems to me I’ve been there, at least I saw this building in my dreams.
Rottentomatos’ tomatometer rates it 97%.

1. Toy Story 3 (2010)

Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3

It is the third and currently final feature-length film in the Toy Story series. The film was produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.
The story, characters, everything is fantastic. Wanna to awake some memories and get a sweet tears on your cheeks that is the right movie to watch. I’ve been dying waiting the dvd release on November.
Rottentomatos’ tomatometer rates it 99%.
The critical consensus is: Deftly blending comedy, adventure, and honest emotion, Toy Story 3 is a rare second sequel that really works.

Old Site

Old Site

Today I had to delete the old free-hosted website that I had since 2005. It was necessary thing, because it misled people, who wish to contact me and who still were leaving the comments on guestbook, which I check very rare. Of course on another side it was a sad event because I had a lot of memories and thoughts connected with this piece of web. Stuff that I will remember and cherish in my mind. Autumn 2004 – Summer 2005 time when I got idea that as an artist I had to have a website, and how I was making errors, by searching the right way to create a website, and how I was understanding all that system of internet and etc…

That’s why for all these my memories, for their long years of life I took a full web page’s print screens:

“Twenty Four Hours” project

“Twenty Four Hours” project

This week I received a pacage with photos & videos from one art project where I participated.

package from UK
Name of this event is “Twenty Four Hours.” And it was occurred on September (Sep. 9 – 17) at The Arts University College at Bournemouth; England, United Kingdom.

“…”Twenty four hours” is an interactive installation exploring themes such as personal communication, globalization and social interfacing in the ‘networking’ age….” Official Site.

There were involved artists from different parts of the world. And during the event they were communicating with audience though the computers by Skype. As I understood there were 23 computers on the wall which means 23 different time zones + 24th zone is a location of the exhibition.

Besides video chat window each artist also could see a streaming video from gallery by ustream channel of this event HERE THE LINK (there are some recorded videos).

For participation in this event I was invited by Philip Lunn, creator of this project.

It was a great and amazing experience of using communication for exhibition; connecting different people in one time in one place and being exhibited without even leaving a home or a room lol.
