Golden Globe Round Up 2011

user
In 2009 The Golden Globe ceremony didn't have a host. The actors/actresses just came out to present and announce the winner. I don't remember what they did for an opening, but a joke monologue isn't the only way to open the show with energy. I don't want to be a Pollyanna or someone who only accepts niceties and tact, but I felt some of host Ricky Gervais', blunt, roast type humor may have been unnecessary. Do I feel this way because we're talking about Hollywood Royalty, like J...

Tobruk

user
Director: Václav Marhoul.
There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is the will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is the capital, which we spend gradually. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. The deepest fear rises when a man is floundered by a current, all alone, having nothing to hold on and not being able to cope. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, II. WW, Fall 1941. Jiri Pospichal, twenty years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are rawly confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self respect and courage. He is full of self-confidence and patriotic ideals, yet at the same time is deeply frustrated by his father, whom he views as a collaborator. His closest companion is a Jewish soldier, Jan Lieberman, in many ways more mature. Their opposite, in turn, is Corporal Kohák, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, for whom warfare is above all a profession The psychological drama between these three characters, the differing attitudes and personalities of each of them, are, during the course of the story and most clearly in its dramatic climax, brought into confrontation with a clear and harsh test of the moral character of all. The plot of the film is freely based on the classic American novel “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane, first published in New York in 1897.

Moleman – The Truth Lies Down Under

Director: Szilárd Matusik, Gábor Csépai.
Moleman is a documentary diary about the independent subcultures of a bustling Central European capital, Budapest. Under the cultural surface of the metropolis lies a flourishing art life, and alternative recreational activities are available. There are many who do not follow the mainstream taste, and do not fall for the temptation of the commercial media. The originators of Budapest’s subcultures and their audience represent hundreds of thousands of people. These subcultures and artists should not be underrated or disregarded. Moleman chooses five characters from this world, and allows us to peek through their eyes into a culture and lifestyle that lie out of the realm of celebrities, that is other than Pop Idol or the soap opera „Between Friends” or the pop band Hooligans. But it exists, creates works and is taking shape.

DARK FILM

Director: Craig Ford.
You would be forgiven for thinking that the shooting of Horror Bill was just like any other film shoot. Attention seeking actors, power mad Assistant directors, dodgy equipment. But when the actors start to die in a series of unusual ‘accidents’ we discover there are more sinister things going on here. Who is the Director? Why have only the Assistant Director and the deranged Production assistant met him? What’s really killing off the cast? Are they really accidents? How come the special effects look so good on this small budget horror? The answers to these questions all point to one sinister conclusion….One too terrible to mention here! All we can tell you is that Horror Bill is a very ‘Dark Film’!

Kluckin Films In Surge Weekly

By Chris Raposa For Weekly Surge Photos by Scott Smallin Staff Photographer Horror flicks can be broken down into three major categories: suspense, slasher, and supernatural. In many cases, these three core components are fused together for the greater goal of the film, which is to scare the hell out of moviegoers. The horror genre in movies dates back to the onset of film itself. In 1896, George
