Hello, my name is KGB and you might know me from those far overreacted mini-reviews that most probably annoy the hell out of everybody. Sorry about that. Anyway, this is my first and proud post in the Criticker Blog.
The writer’s strike is over, thankfully, which means the Oscars weren’t cancelled and Jon Stewart now has to find new material. But, how would Hollywood look one year from now, if the writer’s strike wouldn’t have ended? A photoshop contest at cracked.com has a rather twisted and sad idea of what the world would look like.
This must have been very time consuming to put together, a complete list of all 79 Best Picture winners posters. See the list here, and which is your favourite? All it now needs to take it up to 80 is the No Country for old Men poster..
What a fun night out! I wonder if they’ve got a cinema license.
CINEMA41 is a pop-up movie theater with just one seat. This makes this private cinema definitely the smallest cinema in the world. CINEMA41 is situated in a decorated micro-space in a housing complex in downtown Amsterdam. Every week we offer a fresh programme with all sorts of movies to watch in a private and very intense atmosphere! We are open to everybody and at any time. Tickets are available for 3 euros. Popcorn and coke included!

This explores the idea of distilling a whole film down to one single image. Using eight of my favourite films from eight of my most admired directors including Sidney Lumet, Francis Ford Coppola and John Boorman, each film is processed through a Java program written with the processing environment. This small piece of software samples a movie every second and generates an 8 x 6 pixel image of the frame at that moment in time. It does this for the entire film, with each row representing one minute of film time.
