Movie Mention: Night Watch

16 Jan

I’m a sucker for Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Thriller. Hence why I write that genre. In fact, one of the reviews for “November Snow” says,

This book was amazing. This book built up so much suspense, I couldn’t put it down. It is a mix of Adventure, Fantasy, Thriller, and Romance novels all in one. Great book for anyone. (William, Kindle Edition, 5 Stars)

Because I LOVE these genres, I strive to explore them in all types of art. I encourage other writers to do the same. Watch movies, listen to their soundtracks for music inspiration, and read novels, old and new. Today, I’m giving an example of expanding your palate by watching foreign films within the genre you enjoy. 220px-Night_Watch_(2004_film)_theatrical_poster

Night Watch (Nochnoy dozor) is a great Russian (English Subtitled) Action, Fantasy, Thriller movie to switch your inspiration up. Set in modern-day Moscow, Anton is stuck between the Dark and the Light when the Great Ones are discovered, threatening the apocalypse if they ever meet.

Or as Geser says, 

And so it will be, until a man emerges who is meant to become the Great One. And, if he chooses the side of Light, then Light will win. But, those, to whom the truth has been revealed, say that he will choose Darkness. For it is easier to kill the Light within oneself, than to scatter the Darkness around… The prophecies are coming true.

My friend and I found it on Amazon Prime, but you can rent it, and I’m sure it’s on sites such as Netflix.

Check it out (Or, if you like other genres, I really encourage you to try a foreign film in your genre to see differences, inspiration, and techniques that you can form into your own creations.)

Movie Mention: Django Unchained

3 Jan

Last night, I saw Django Unchained, and I loved it!

If you are a Quentin Tarantino fan, buy a ticket and drive to the nearest theatre now. Seriously.

Not only is Jamie Foxx entertaining, but Christoph Waltz’s character, Dr. King Schultz, is hilariously brilliant. You’ll be cheering for these two bounty-hunters as they fight to save Django’s wife from the ruthless Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio…and, come on, who doesn’t like a little Leo now and then?)Django_Unchained_Poster

However, I understand Quentin Tarantino films are very gore-filled and extremely violent, so this movie isn’t for everyone (and it’s definitely not for children.) As Calvin Candie said, “Adult supervision is required.” So get some friends together or take a date, and go see this drama-filled western.

More information on Django here.

Enjoy!

Movie Mention: V for Vendetta

5 Nov

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot…

That’s right. Today is the fifth of November; therefore, we are all required (if not overjoyed) to watch V for Vendetta.

This 2005 Sci-Fi thriller will cause you to wear a fox mask and unite with freedom fighters by the end of the movie. If you haven’t already seen this Natalie Portman flick, (I’m sort of disappointed in your movie tastes..ha jk) I think this is a FANTASTIC movie to rent tonight and watch, considering it’s that time of the year where it’s starting to get cold…And, it’s November fifth. Have I mentioned that yet?

I promise it’s entertaining AND intelligent–always twisting more of the plot to fit a conspiracy that delivers quirky lines, fighting the totalitarian government as much as the citizens do.

So rent this movie tonight!

After all, who could forget that the Fifth of November is V for Vendetta day?

Watch trailers (or get more info) here.
