Beim Streaming Thursday verraten wir euch, was Netflix und Co. für euer Wochenende parat halten.
“Du, der Joker Schauspieler ist tot.”
Mit Arrival bringt uns Denis Villeneuve einen Science Fiction Film, der einen eigenen Podcast rechtfertigt.
Der neue Film des oscarprämierten Regisseurs James Marsh (Man on Wire) weckt von der Prämisse her sofort Assoziationen zum renommierten Filmpreis. Die Entdeckung der Unendlichkeit (engl: The Theory of Everything) erzählt die Geschichte des britischen Physikers Stephen Hawking, der dank seiner populärwissenschaftlichen Bücher weltberühmt wurde, aufgrund einer seltenen Form von ALS aber schon seit Jahrzehnten körperlich schwer eingeschränkt ist.
Die erste Hälfte des Jahres ist vorbei! Und wir listen unsere vorläufigen Top Ten Filme auf.
When a storm of debries from a shot down satellite surprises a shuttle from the ISS (International Space Station) the surviving astronauts Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) must fight to stay alive and make it back to safety in one piece.
It has been seven years since Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men – a brilliant and layered science fiction film weaving social and polticial commentary together with fantastic characters and staggering images.
Seven years is an awfully long time for a director to follow this movie whose critical praise has only increased since then. The obvious question is was it worth the wait?
Christopher Nolan is returning to the Sci-Fi genre in 2014 with Interstellar. A week ago…
So the Oscars are over and let’s see where we stand.
- Was is a good night?
- A good show?
- Deserving Winners?
Tonight’s the night! And it will be a wild and unpredictable night!
Tonight the Oscar goes to….?
As with last year I have sat down with ExistentialCoffee to pin down our votes for the evening. If we agreed on one tip it will be listed as our prediction Will Win whereas different colors for Flipthetruck and ExistentialCoffee will. Should have been there and Should Win categories are added for fun whereas Could Win categories mark the one’s which might take home the gold.
Please note that I am notoriously bad at predictions and while this article might sound very confident (and probably full of itself/pretentious) I am taking a stab in the dark many times (director, supporting actor, original screenplay mainly) – the percentage at the side is just how sure we feel about this guess so don’t take them as laws of nature. This year has been a crazy race especially due to the omission of Ben Affleck and it will be a fun evening, I am sure.
If you are interested in continuous self-indulgent whining by flipthetruck you can follow my reactions on twitter.
So, it is only a few hours before the show begins and I am ready!
Les Misérables follows the life of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) who is released from a 19-year sentence and has to try to find a new life after losing two decades in hard slave-work. But Valjean can never rest easy for Javert (Russell Crowe) is always on his heels reminding him that once a criminal always a criminal. In the eyes of Javert a man like Valjean deserves no second chance and will always be a thief. The conflict of redemption hope and how tiny good deeds can redeem a man and change people is played against the background of the June Rebellion (1832) a student-led revolution against the monarchy.
