    The infinity refers to the number of endings, right?

    The Sky Crawlers (2008)
    For what might pass as a review, though it's a bit all over the place since I just wrote this right now. Finished watching the movie about half an hour ago.

    Took me long enough to watch this, since I bought it a few weeks ago.

    Definitely an interesting movie. Read the pack of the box, News of the World reviewer said "Haunting, subtle, and hypnotically beautiful...". All three actually. Little music throughout, not a lot of excitement either. Lots of long drawn out stares and pauses and very few characters with multiple facial expressions. Some points where the long pauses didn't serve it too well, as I felt the other characters in the frame, or even the character of interest, stays perfectly still for too long without many idle movements. Made it feel kind of bland sometimes.

    I don't usually deal so well with subtlety in these sorts of things, and miss a lot of those details. So after seeing 'subtle' on the back, I went in knowing to pay close attention. Which might be why I found so much of it empty, and caught onto the absence of idle animations. Maybe it really wasn't empty though, and it was just too deep for me to get. As I said, I'm not so good with reading into subtlety.

    Very very quiet movie. Even the air battle scenes seemed oddly quiet. Perhaps to draw attention away from the combat scenes, since the war clearly wasn't the focus of the movie.

       I also managed to figure out the twist from the start, when he was being guided around and said a lot about recognising things. Not sure if the hints were meant to be subtle, obvious, or if I was just thinking a lot into everything in this movie. But it did do a lot to make me doubt the idea. The idea being that the previous pilot for his plane was himself, and he'd forgotten everything for whatever reason. I didn't suspect anything sci-fi was involved in it though, so once they started talking about how the previous pilot was shot, I brushed off the idea. Since I often make pretty outlandish predictions, but rarely are they ever right.

    The reincarnation of OCD guy solidified everything though. And before he'd returned, it had dropped plenty more hints. It seemed totally ridiculous throughout that Yuichi really was just a new guy, what with how Suito acted towards him; as if he was an old love of hers. But it still cast doubt over all of that for me. Yuichi seemed to take the news that he was the former pilot pretty passively, and the fact that he was was delivered without much of a mind-fuck moment. Which I guess implies that we were meant to have got that figured out. The other girl who I forget the name of spoke of the fact that everybody accepted Yuichi when he arrived and kind of ignored the fact that he was the other guy. Despite pretty much knowing it, they were in denial about it. Yuichi and the audience seemed to feel the same sort of thing with the return of OCD guy. Nothing much was said about it, and we were just made to accept it. New guy arrives who looks just like the old guy who died. What's the big deal?

    Plot all seemed very well orchestrated if it was set up the way I imagine. That being that it's pretty much trying to make you feel what the characters feel. That being doubt that Yuichi really is the old guy, despite really knowing it. Oh anime you do like to leave lots of things empty for perfectly legit reasons don't you. 
      

    Very nice visually though. I worried at the start that it was just going to be loaded with conspicuous CG. Happily enough though, all the backgrounds were all about as realistic looking as the planes, clouds, water, and landscapes they flew over in the opening sequence. With the characters being usual cels. Very nice looking cells for that matter. All very nicely animated when they're actually doing anything. In retrospect, maybe even the lack of movement in some characters was meant to say something. Who really knows with artsy movies like this.

    The movie's definitely given me a lot to think about. Don't think I've ever taken this much out of a movie before. I should pay attention more often.

    Will probably watch it a second time to see what more I can uncover or assume about characters based on what I've learned the first time around. To look on it again now that I'm wise to what is actually going on.


    Giving it a 9/10.
    I think everything was done very well. I really haven't ever seen so much in a movie from just one viewing. I'd like a lot if I was able to see this much in every movie I watch, and I think I'll resolve to pay more attention to movies from now on. Missed the 10/10 mark for not making me feel all that much. It felt all atmospheric, as if the energy and emotion had been drained from a lot of the characters for a reason. And with that justification, I can overlook those things.

    Yeah the critics at the time didn't get it either, but over time and repeat watches it makes perfect sense for it to be great.

    Evil Dead II (1987) 9.5/10 every time

    Ash is a way cooler character in this with a significantly improved haircut compared to the first

    I'm still not sure which Evil Dead I prefer, 1 or 2. I just think 2 is the perfect horror after like half way, but Evil Dead 2 is great in its own right for slightly different reasons. Ash losing grip on his sanity and stuff's done really really well and the budget's obviously improved which helps but still

    idk i will say they are equal and both amazing

    gonna watch army of darkness again tonight lol (im rewatching them all)

    And I'm a huge movie enthusiast. I've seen and reviewed a lot of movies for the newspaper.

    My first 10/10 goes to the Norwegian movie 'Hodejegerne' (Headhunters)

    Amazing movie. Find one with English subtitles and watch it now.

    It was a good movie but definitely not a 10/10.
    It didn't really have anything groundbreaking or emotional, it was just an action movie with a decent plot.

    Evil Dead III: Army Of Darkness (1992) 8/10

    Not as good as the first 2, I think that it focuses too much on slapstick and its cause and effect is totally weak as well as there being lots of continuity errors (honestly I'm surprised they didn't go back and fix a lot of them) but it's still a good action movie, and Bruce Campbell is fantastic in it. Some pretty good humour but the lack of gore is kind of disappointing, and the stop motion isn't as good in this as it was on the other two (probably because of the significantly larger scale)

    Edited:

    Also I've got a limited edition boxset version which contains the original ending, which is     at the end when Ash takes the potion to go back something disturbs him and he takes 7 drops instead of 6, going 700 years into the future instead of 600 to find it a post-apocalypse, which I thought was a cool idea but tbh I like the other ending, because for one thing it leaves it open for a sequel! :v:     Ash Williams is definitely long overdue for some deadite slaying. I know Sam and Bruce are currently working on a remake instead but Sam Raimi has some of the script for 4 written which I'm looking forward to even if it won't appear for many years, assuming it does actually appear.

    In the mean time I'll stick with the Evil Dead 4 my friend and I came up with which genuinely works we'll just hire Bruce Campbell when we get the money and make it I guess~

    Honestly the only films out there which show war for what it really is, is the documentary's and books released by journalists (preferably third party or independent) I know a few friends who are in the (British) military and honestly, Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Band of Brothers really over-dramatize I THINK it is. From what I've read, heard and seen the Military is just a career choice and most of it is just standing around in boiling weather, chatting with friends and guarding shit. The action is apparently over really fast and you get a huge adrenaline rush so you dont really think about whats happening around you.

    Then again we are talking about different time period were our soldiers are more mentally trained and professional and I have zero experience on hand.

    Probably the best war movie i've ever seen, and quite possibly the only movie i've ever seen about the soviet soldiers in Afghanistan.
    The thing i love most about it is the fact that its not one of those movies where all the good guys never die and survive against overwhelming odds, and the fact that by the end of the movie     almost all of the soldiers are dead

    It's a different war and a different time. There were a lot more open engagements in WW2 and the soldiers weren't highly trained compared to modern times. Watch Generation Kill or Restrepo, it gives a better look of modern combat, closer to what you've heard.

    9th company was terrible. It was part standard war movie, part exaggerated HORRORS OF WAR and the rest was just stupid. It was based on an actual battle, except rather than having 6 die then call in the Hinds to kill everything, everyone dies. Think of if Black Hawk down had them shoot down 30 helicopters. Then there's arrive HURR PLANE CRASH, friend gets shot by a kid so he cries out dramatically while an entire village blows up behind him, confront a Mujahideen but lacks the balls to shoot him, it was just really bad.
