I’m watching Pulp Fiction, and I started to notice extra details like shot selection and scene construction, and character development. So now as I’m watching the movie, I’m spotting them, and looking them up on another website to learn even more about them.
I’m using film theory and literary analysis, by choice. I feel so mature.
Christopher Nolan is amazing. He might be my favourite director. I watched The Prestige solely on the merit that he directed it.
Anyway, The Prestige is about a feud between two rival magicians who go to great lengths to both outdo each other and to ruin each other. It was really good. Like most Nolan movies, both worthy and necessary to re-watch.

I saw Alice in Wonderland recently, and when the first preview was an obvious kids movie, I wondered, will they play kids/family movie trailers first, and then go from there into movies that will have less appeal for kids? I thought this would be smart, because then if kids decide to play the nagging game: “That looks so cool! Can we see it? I wanna see it! Mommmmyyyy!!”, by the time the movie itself starts, they’ll either have been shushed into being quiet, or at their vocal chords would completely give out. And everyone could enjoy the movie.
But they ruined it for me by playing ALL previews for kids/family movies. Seriously, a Toy Story 3? That’s weak.
