I actually got out today! Saw The Wind Rises with my friends! It was a really great film and very touching too. And also apparently Elijah Wood was in it but he never said anything about it, but WOAH!!!
It was pretty fun though. Long day. Haven’t had people in my house in a while either. (my GACKT infested room is something to be feared as well…..)
sad? watch lord of the rings. happy? watch lord of the rings. sick? watch lord of the rings. sleepy? watch lord of the rings. dying from a festering wound? watch lord of the rings. have homework to do? watch lord of the rings.
watching lord of the rings solves 100% of all problems. trust me i am a medical doctor.
It’s not often where the issues of politics and social uprisings end up being involved with Visual music. Many fans typically think of their music and the real-world as separate entities, but occasionally the two clash with one another. (more…)
Oh i fucking hate those things , he always makes me so worried too but he’s a grown ass man who can take care of himself and he’s surrounded but a bunch of people that know his ways and take care of him too , this is so unnecessary and dumb.
YES. THANK YOU. He’s 40 years old! Like…. I get it. The man makes all of us worry and they want to support him, but this isn’t the way to do it imo.
(and they are worried about him leaving. So what. If he wants to retire, let the man do it. It is his life. We will be sad WITHOUT A DOUBT, but we will support his decisions omg)
I get where the fans are coming from, but all of this stuff he had already addressed and it was all addressed a long time ago. Like his last visualive and the stupid tabloid stuff. And then his weakness and always being sick…. he basically already confirmed that he wasn’t going to change his lifestyle because of it.
And it’s a project cuz they are worried.
“The image we are going to prepare for him will contain an inspirational picture of a landscape we find inspiring with a text in Japanese and English in which we explain how worried we are, and how much we want to support him and send him our love.”
Announcing how worried you are isn’t support for the artist.
In one of the LOTR special features, Peter Jackson said that movies like LOTR shouldn’t be made by people who didn’t understand special effects because it would be very easy for special effects to overwhelm the movies in a bad way.
The armies (both good and evil) in LOTR consisted of hundred of extras in painstakingly detailed armor and make-up. Yes, it was time-consuming, but it looks real.
In the Hobbit movies, pretty much every character outside of Thorin & Company is computer generated. Lurtz was a human in make-up, and Azog and Bolg are computer generated, and you notice the difference. Lurtz looks like a real-life threat. Azog and Bolg look like video game villains. The realism is completely sucked away, and you feel like you’re simply observing instead of feeling immersed.
In short, Peter has become the very type of director that he warned against when he was making LOTR.
