Also, it’s my movie acting debut, playing the part of Christopher Wayne Thomas: a rugged bar goer who mostly sits and cheers for the almost 10 seconds of on-screen time and has no talking lines. You may have briefly read about him here. Yes, I look amazing with that mustache. I used Stanislavsky’s system of acting and I think it shows. If only I were a member of the Academy, I might have a chance of an award. Most (all) of my scenes (the one) were shot last November.
In any case, I have no idea how you may watch it yet, so you will have to sit tight. I will update this post when I get more info.
Congratulations to the director and all the crew, and thank you for the opportunity.
The trailer for Man of Steel is now up. As most of you know, a new Superman movie is A Big Deal so I had to post it here.
Hard to say if it’s going to be good. There is barely a glimpse of the villain General Zod (played by Michael Shannon) and he looks nothing like Superman 2’s Zod. Henry Cavill really, really looks the part. And Superman actually throws punches in this movie, not like in that all-but-forgotten Superman Returns POS.
Director Zack Snyder is really hit or miss. He’s got very good movies, but he also has terrible movies. But John Williams’ theme song appears to be missing.
First, “Cohen On The Bridge”. Director Andrew Weinrib had unprecedented access to surviving hostages and commandos from Operation Entebbe. He assembled a fast paced 20 minute animated short with interviews in the background about the operation. The visuals are stunning and the story riveting. You can’t even blink. It was followed by a Q&A with the director that was equally interesting.
You can see the trailer here, but you may need Facebook access. This movie you must see. And a full length film is in the works.
Second, I saw “This is Sodom”, a movie by the guys from Eretz Nehederet. This dumb comedy was a surprise record breaker in Israel and is actually really funny. Trailer below:
Director of Tron: Legacy speaking about “The Grid”, the virtual world in the movie, on his interview by Discover:
I really liked the idea that this was a closed-off system like the Galapagos Islands, where the simulation has been constantly evolving and growing on some server locked away in some hidden place. That way it felt more like a Western: The world is large and expansive, but at the same time, there’s a code or a set of rules you have to follow. If you want to send a message to someone, you can’t just beam it across cyberspace. You have to get on your light cycle and deliver it in person.
I saw the movie on Saturday and it’s quite the visual spectacle. Try to see it in IMAX and in 3D. And don’t worry if you haven’t seen or don’t remember the original.
