Non-stop Ennui!  (http://www.khonkaen.com/english/forum/uploads/46/sleepy-smiley.gif)



Silly, waste of talent, waste of film, waste of money.

Liam Neeson is becoming a cookie cutter action hero cranking out one vaguely forgettable cookie cutter action movie after another. This type of film used to be referred to as a "made for TV movie" meaning acceptable for a mindless, mass-market, but much to sloppy and poorly thought-out to be taken seriously. I saw an older film like that recently on teevee with Selma Blair as recluse heiress living anonymously and agoraphobically in a Park Avenue penthouse, and the improbable plot to bilk her out of her fortune. A possibly clever premise that demanded an equally clever screenplay and director to pull it off . . . which it didn't get! Neither of these films was "bad." It is just that they weren't good, either. A viewing audience spoiled by The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire and Dexter and West Wing and Breaking Bad and, and and . . . expects and deserves something better. In the past we "forgave" TV movies for being not being good (Shogun was an notable exception) because they never aspired to be anything more than they were. Ironically, now we get teevee movies in the cinema with big-name talent earning mega-bucks . . . while the really good stuff is on teevee!

Oh, f**k!  Sabotaged Again!


Can't decide if this one is repulsively compelling or compellingly repulsive. I'll get back to you on that. However, normally I avoid these mindless, testosterone-driven, teenage shoot-em-ups, and if I happen to see one out of boredom, don't waste any pixels writing about it. However, this one is a "real" movie in the sense of technical expertise and well-executed action sequences. Good casting, and exceptionally convincing hard-ass guys (and girls). Sure would want them on my side in a conflict! And of course, it has an aging-but-effective, Ahnold, the "Governator." Contrived, unsatisfying story. But then, story is not an essential component of this type of movie.  To the extent there is one, story is just flimsy scaffolding to frame the action and cgi on.

Having said all of that, the thing that moves me to take pixel to screen is that I don't ever recall Ahnold saying the word "f**k" before. And, oh boy, does he ever say it, again, and again, and again and again . . . f**k, f**k, f**k, f**k, f**k. I don't recall if he actually says "mother f**ker ." He might, and certainly other characters do, as they romp through this contest to see how many times the word "f**k" can get inserted into a move. The profanity makes Quentin Tarantino movies look like Disney flicks!

Don't get me wrong. I ain't no boy scout. I use profanity and vulgar language and sub-standard English liberally, but always I hope, in order to make a point that might be lost in more genteel speech, or to judiciously add spice and color, or to purposefully shock, or to make a point, or to express an emotions best expressed "hot & dirty." However, the language in the film made me blush in the first ten minutes! Maybe I am just a wimp. However, is it seemly for a governor of the State of California to say "mother f**ker" publicly? Note my emphasis on the word "publicly." Could you imagine that coming from Barak Obama or Bill Clinton or George Bush?

So anyway, if all you f**kers out have an urge to see the Governor of the State of California say "mother f**ker!" you had better get your god dammed hairy ass down to see this f**king movie. Oh, and if you like graphic violence (and I mean GRAPHIC), you have yet another incentive to see this f**king movie. No person is ever shot without the bullet passing through the and causing massive blood spatter on the wall behind them. You will be especially charmed by a disemboweled victim of the drug cartel nailed to ceiling and dripping copious globs of blood and entrails onto an FBI agent below.

                    Enough said? Yeah, and f**k you too!

TRANSCENDENCE

MetaCritic.com (http://www.metacritic.com/movie/transcendence)
MetaScore : 44/100


Starring: Cillian Murphy, Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall

Summary: Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can, but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

http://youtu.be/nbp3Ra3Yp74



I wonder how many bzillions of dollars the film industry has collectively spent making movies about comic books?  There seems to be an insatiable appetite for this kind of entertainment, which I find mildly diverting . . . sometimes.  I was never much of a consumer of comic books as a kid, and never became a geeky-hip collector as an adult. I do wonder what historians will say about all of this in 100 years.
Title: Rex's thoughts about Railway Man
Post by: Rex (Admin) on May 01, 2014, 02:57:53 PM
Thu 1 May 2014, 2:19 pm






Railway Man is a beautiful film.  I am surprised it got such luke warm review overall.  Granted it is slow-moving (very), and quietly intense, and probably does not have broad commercial appeal.  However, it is extremely thoughtful, sensitive and well-done.  It is a "real" movie and we get damned few of them these days.  The film explores universal themes of human cruelty, the horrors of war, suffering, redemption and forgiveness which everyone can relate to. It also gives us a window into posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at a time when little was know about it and no treatments were available.  None.   It also happens to be a fascinating story about some horrible incidents in a nasty little corner of World War II that no one would remember at all if it were not for the 1957 Hollywood hit "Bridge on the River Kwai" which paints a much more rosy picture of the terrible crimes committed there.


As Screamer says, definitely well-worth seeing. Get it on DVD if you miss it in the cinema.

Frank wonders: Has anyone gone to see Godzilla - 3D?[/size]

The Amazing Spiderman 2 3D left a lot to be desired and was not as good as the first.

Thu 22 May 2014, 10:31 am

The 3D in Godzilla was added post-production, which is virtually guaranteed to be awful.  However, I remain unimpressed with even when it is done properly and actually and shot in 3D such as Avatar.


You know, with the advent of Dolby stereo and Panavision (possibly a slightly curved screen and 170 mm Panavision for some films), I think we have got is just about right for this media. We need to wait for an entirely, radically new paradigm (drug induced movies?) before we can improve very much on what we have got.   Movies are still best for telling stories while video games are best for playing games and amusement park attractions are best for immersive experiences.  Movies such as all these comic book movies which try to do all three, end up doing neither very well.[/size]

Summary:Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

EDGE of TOMORROW


 
I liked "Edge of  Tomorrow" more than the convoluted, too-vanilla "Oblivion."  One of the reviewers referred to "Oblivion" as just another Tom Cruise 2.0 action movie: See Tom run. See Tom jump. Jump! Jump! Jump! See Tom fight. Fight!  Fight!  Fight!  See Tom fly.  See Tom shoot weapons and blow stuff up. See Tom look impressively youthful and sexy for a 50 year old.  See Tom make another $20 million dollars!

"Edge..." was intelligent and it had heart, and some funny moments, a la "Groundhogs Day."  It could have been a great movie along the lines of "Matrix," but "something" was missing that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe we needed something more to care about than the story delivers?   Still, definitely on the "A" list.

Tom is the baby, the last of our generation of action heroes. Seems like yesterday I saw him in the movies in Honolulu dancing in his underwear in "Risky Business."  The two ancient ones, Schwarzenegger and Stallone are pushing 70! Stallone still looks great, better than Aaahnold, surprisingly.   Bruce Willis, by far the best actor of the bunch, is in his 60's along with second-string Steven Seagal and Van Damn.

I don't think the newer crop of actions heroes has produced any real icons yet.

Undoubtedly some will love "Transformers: The Age of Extinction."  And if you enjoy marathon special effects fests, more power to you.  Enjoy!  Still, I wonder why I could have written both of the above reviews having never seen the movie? It is because unless some real breakthrough creative genius was brought into play here, this premise has no soul, nothing to say, no place to go (except the filmmakers on their way to the bank).  That is not a criticism so much as an observation. I remember a trip to Bangkok and taking in a movie, the first time I had been to the cinema in years (long before we had Central Plaza in Khon Kaen).  I was duly impressed by the modern multiplex and the popcorn and the coke.  The theater was beautiful and the sound FANTASTIC.  I forget what move we were there to see, but "Transformers" was one of the previews.  I had never heard of "Transformers," wasn't even sure what I was looking at, but the trailer blew my mind.  It blew my mind in witnessing how far special effects and film making technology had advanced in the years since I had access to the cinema.  I was just in awe of the obvious creative genius involved in making this film.  I didn't see a full "Transformers" film until years later here in Khon Kaen, and I nearly fell asleep!   How long should a roller coaster ride be?  Five minutes?  10 minutes?  Three hours???  Well, I suppose there are some "freaks" who ride roller coasters for hours on end, even some real aficionados who travel the country and the world seeking out the most awesome coasters.  But I don’t  mean them.  I mean your average Joe Sixpack.  Three hours riding the roller coaster???  Highly unlikely.  I feel the same way about these "Transformers" films.  That trailer that I saw in Bangkok years ago was MAGNIFICENT, but it was all the "Transformers" I ever needed to see and will ever need to see again!   And I have a similar feeling about most of the other comic book films of this generation.But I sure wish we had 'em when I was 12.  Sigh! :-[

Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. [The Weinstein Company]

Meta Score  :  56/100

Starring: Aasif Mandvi, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Madhur Mittal, Pitobash, Suraj Sharma


Summary: In a last ditch effort to save his career as a sports agent, JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) concocts a scheme to find baseball's next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called "Million Dollar Arm." With the help of a cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout (Alan Arkin) he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma), two 18 year old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India - the boys, who have never left their rural villages - are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

These are so intense and so violent and so depraved, they definitely qualify as   "guilty pleasures" for me.  At the same time--story and content notwithstanding--it is so interesting from a stylistic standpoint to watch this digital creation where real actors are transformed into  hybrid forms of actor--comic book (graphic novel) drawing--and cgi creation.  The juxtaposition of the ultra-noir, black, black, black & white punctuated by the occasional splash of brilliant color can be stunning. Quite difficult to describe if you have not already seen it.

Having said that, enjoyed my guilty pleasure, but not as much as the first. This one was finely crafted and fun, but doesn't have the heart and soul of the first one, and does not bring any new ideas or inspiration to the sequel.

Worth seeing if you like this kind of stuff and have a strong stomach.

Post by: Rex (Admin) on December 04, 2014, 03:57:16 PM
HUNGER GAMES: Mockingjay Part 1 Thumbs Up (http://khonkaen.com/english/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif)

I was surprised that I quite enjoyed Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1.  I find James Berardinelli's (http://www.reelviews.net/php_review_template.php?identifier=2834) reviews reliable and often reflecting my own reactions. However, I think I liked this one more than he did. However, I agree that it is annoying  breaking films that tell a single story into two or three parts that you have to wait for a year to find out what happens.  I was not charmed by the "cliff hanger" ending, but it was not so inconclusive that it spoiled the experience.

In evaluating films such as Hunger Games, it is important to keep in mind that a relatively new genre, "Young Adult" has become a significant force in the movie industry in recent years.  In this context, I think we should read "Young Adult" more as "Young Teenager," and consider films from within that context, not compare them to more adult faire. These are not "adult" films in the sense of dealing with mature themes or intellectual challenges or "real life" as adults conceptualize and experience it.  Values are painted in broadest possible strokes, much like the old cowboy movies with a clear distinction between the good guy wearing a white hat and the villain a black hat. Love is portrayed almost as Victorian; painful, conflicted, often tragic, and most of all, chaste.  The heroes are torn between loyalties and struggle with existential demons (hormones).

Within that context, however, and not taking anything away from it, Mocking Jay does a find job of film making and entertaining.  Credible performances, a ensemble we have come to know and like,  and a compelling narrative that moves right along. I sat through the entire 123 minutes without having to run to take a pee break.   To it's credit, the film raises  important questions about power, social class, and the struggle for fairness, equality and democracy, albeit in a relatively juvenile way.  This one is darker than the previous installments, no more "games" this time, and a lot of tragedy, which we will hope will set the stage for a satisfying climax in the final installment  . . . next year.  Sigh!

His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

I am waiting for the reviews of Jupiter Ascending, a film by the Wachowskis' (Matrix, Cloud Atlas).  Probably opening in Thailand next week.  So far, no reviews.  However, saw the trailer at the cinema yesterday, and it looks like a big, expensive Marvel Comics movie.  I would expect something a bit more sophisticated than that from the Wachowskis' who are right up there with Nolan--and in their SF genre--maybe even Scorsese.  I am hoping that the trailer just exploited some of the big action and special effects scenes to sell tickets, and that there is a real movie in there somewhere.  Let us know if you see it.

 Summary: The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drisella into the family home. But, when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming "Kit." Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever. [Walt Disney Pictures]

AMY (or AMY WINEHOUSE)



MetaCritic.com (http://www.metacritic.com/movie/amy-2015)

MetaScore : 85/100

Starring:   Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Mitch Winehouse, Mos Def, Pete Doherty   

Summary:  Amy tells the story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. [A24]

---
~Rex:  I am not into the current music scene so unfortunately this is the first time I have heard of Amy Winehouse. But she seem to be someone worth knowing about and the movie is getting great reviews.

PAN



Filmmakers seem unable to resist the urge to remake or reimage or prequel or sequel "Peter Pan" in some way or other.   Even with talent and star power the likes of Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Johnny Depp and others,  offhand, I cannot think of any of these attempts which turned out to be even adqeuate, never mind good.  The one exception would be the 1954 Broadway Musical adaptation starring Mary Martin and Cyril Richards, the next year, adapted for televison, which remains a as part of the legacy of the (First) Golden Age of Television.

Judging by the reviews this new one doesn't fare any better than its predecessors  ~Rex


MetaCritic.com (http://www.metacritic.com/movie/pan)

MetaScore : 38100


Starring:  Garrett Hedlund, Hugh Jackman, Jimmy Vee, Levi Miller, Rooney Mara

Summary: Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.

Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

UPDATE:

Ooops!  There were two additional movies with English soundtrack which I missed during yesterday's updated.

IRIS

Summary  :  IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. "I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."

STEVE JOBS

[b)

MetaScore : 82/100


Starring:   Jeff Daniels, Kate Winslet, Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen 

Summary:   Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. [Universal Pictures]

~Rex sez:  This is an excellent, compelling and watchable film exploring the complex emotional dynamics that drove Steve Jobs and defined his often flawed personal and professionoal relaationships.However, if you want to be more richly informed about a sometimes murky subject, you need to see the documentary "Steve Jobs, The Man in the Machine," and the much earlier and underrated "Pirates of Silicon Vallery" to get a sense of Jobs's sory from a historical perspective.  Reacing Isaacson's biography fills in many of the blanks.  Still, however much you  inform yourself, understanding Jobs will always be a bit like the cliche of the six blind men each giving a different version of an elephant.

Summary:   On February 18, 1952, a massive noreaster struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

My daughters dragged my wife and I to see "Zootopia" at the weekend.  At first I misheard and thought it was 'Utopia' which book was written 500 years ago this year. 

The worst part were the forthcoming attractions.  What is it with you Americans and guns?  Very, very loud soundtrack, lots of bright flashing  lights and lots and lots of guns.  And this should make me want to take my family to see them?  I should think not.

Anyroadup, "Zootopia" was very funny. It's not a deep, thought-provoking film but it made me laugh, and that's not bad.  We all enjoyed it and it made a change to go to the pictures, buckets of popcorn, coke and all.

Do take a jumper, it's quite chilly in there.

I still love the experience of going to the cinema, and I will subject myself to a mediocre film that I would not wast time watching at home just for the experience of going to the cinema.

The flashing lights, noise, guns, intensity you describe are similar to drugs in the way they effect the brain; releasing dopamine and serotonin. Just like drugs, people become addicted and require more and more powerful drugs to get the same kick. And just like drugs,  "pushers" are happy to create these products for profit.  Look at the gaudy, flashy, neon atmosphere of Central Plaza (which is tame compared to to other malls).  You are surrounded by neon, bright light and colors, caffeine, sugar, carbohydrates.  Some big, modern malls are indistinguishable from amusement parks. 

And it is hardly limited to Americans (although Americans make best movies).  Many Thais are unable to "enjoy" themselves with playing music at a volume that Helen Keller would find offensive!

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than its ever known before. [Warner Bros.]

Rex sez:  This opens next week, but thought I would give you a little early sneak peek.  Too soon for reviews, but this could proved to be great or the biggest piece of poop.  The trailer, however, looks really slick.  Also, they seem to have gotten Batman and Superman to move much more freely and flexibly, like real people, not so moribound like lumbering knights in armor. Great cast.  Might be fun!

"10 Cloverfield Lane." Tight, claustrophobic, spooky, well-made, well-acted, full of surprises. John Goodman brings his "A" Game to creepy-pathetic. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is just right as plucky-vulnerable. Not an important movie, but solid entertainment if you like spookers. (http://khonkaenforum.net/Smileys/default/smiley32.gif)

 I had a few hours to kill in KK the other day, so I went to central mall and saw 10 cloverfield lane. Good flick.

Its a very nice theater. By chance the seats were cheaper that day and I got a premium seat for Bt 140. It was a scorcher outside and the air con was great!

 At first, I wasnt so sure I would stay. There were 20 minutes of  comercials and the volume was cranked up to ear spliting  decibles. Luckily, when the movie started, the volume was turned down to a pleasant level.

 When I bought my ticket, the girl showed me the seating layout on the counter screen and asked me what seat I wanted. I said, it didnt matter, any one will do. When I got to the theater, there was only one other person there and they were sitting in the seat right next to mine! Only in Thailand!

Title: Re: Movies in English at SFC Cinemas this week
Post by: fceligoj on June 14, 2016, 12:02:58 PM
The NE has their own language.  It is a mix of Thai and Laos, probably a little Cambodian thrown in.  If you are a person who  grew up using the Bangkok Thai standard Thai language, and you haven't lived in the NE all your life, then you have a very hard time understanding people who speak Esan/Isan.  All students throughout Thailand are taught in school Bangkok Thai, but here in the NE they all get enough Esan/Isan that they understand enough of the language to converse with them using Bangkok Thai.  (My wife is from south Thailand, worked in Bangkok, and then owned a business in Rayong.   Then she moved to Khao Kaen about 12 years ago.  So when our neighbor talks to her maid, the talk Esan/Isan, which she doesn't have a clue what they are saying.)  It is the same for other regions of Thailand that use a local language, like the Hmong.  It is like in the US, all students get standard English in the classroom but they all have their local adaptation.  Look at New England, NYC, the deep south, etc.

So here is a movie that is catering to that native group of speakers.  So that is why I commented.  Never saw this statement about a movie before.
Title: Re: Movies in English at SFC Cinemas this week
Post by: Henry on June 14, 2016, 02:01:26 PM

  This is what makes learning the language here so difficult. Falangs living in the central part of Thailand, only need to learn one language.

 Here, we need to learn three!  Thai, Lao, and Issan.

 Speaking Thai, everyone will understand us. Even in Laos, they will understand when we speak Thai, because they all watch Thai tv shows and movies. But, we have will have problems understanding them because they will often speak Lao or Issan to us.

 And Frank is right about US regional accents. A norweigan guy once said he didnt believe I was American because of my accent.

I didn't realize ESAN was Isaan.  It is quite remarkable that they were actually able to  dub it in ESAN or Isaan.  First they  have to find ESAN-English bilingual speakers who are also competent voice actors. I don't know exactly what the process is, but they have to have a proper studio and engineers to actually do it.  Don't they have also have to get permission from the copyright holder to monkey with the film?  Or is there a blank license allowing dubs in any language?  Someone obviously feels there is enough of a market to justify doing it.  Interesting.

MetaScore : 66/100

Starring: Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall

Summary:  The BFG tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the otherinhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophies presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

Post by: Rex (Admin) on September 10, 2016, 05:45:17 PM
"Sully" (Rex gives 3 1/4 Stars) was very well-done, and Tom Hanks performance is winning as usual.  The aerial footage and the scenes of the the (crash) landing on the Hudson River are compelling. The only reason I am reluctant to give this 3 1/2 Stars is that personally, I am not crazy about "re-enactments" of stories that everyone is already familiar with.  The only surprise was that--at least according to the movie--initially not everyone was convinced that Pilot Sully was a hero which adds an element of suspense to the story.  Good way to spend 90 minutes and have some popcorn.  I wish SFC had Diet Coke.   cry2

LOGAN

I was never much of a comic book fan when I was a kid, and I was not even aware of X-men until Marvel started making the very successful X-man film versions of the comics in 2000. I saw one or two in the cinema and they never really grabbed me. Considering that, the release of "Logan" did not excite me.  To be honest, I didn't even know that the character name Logan was in fact, "Wolverine," one of the mutants in the X-men series. 

I was surprised that  Berardinelli (http://www.reelviews.net/reelviews/logan) gave it 3 1/2 stars, a rating he is usually pretty stingy handing out.

Quote from: Berardinelli
This is like no superhero movie we have ever before seen. Nor is there likely to be another one of this sort anytime soon.


Read the full review. (http://www.reelviews.net/reelviews/logan)

After Roger Ebert's passing, Berardinelli is my "go to" guy for movie reviews. On the strength of his review, I decided to see the film, and B. is correct, it is special.  The film is unusual and extraordinary in the way it finds the right balance between story-telling, creating characters we are about with fantasy plus plenty of action and plenty of unflinching gore! It is a moving, exciting, suspenseful adult treatment of a juvenile concept. Catch it while it is still in cinemas this week as you will probably miss the full impact on the DVD/download version.

Instead of fighting the crowds around Central Plaza, we went to Major Cinema at the Tesco Lotus North.  Their theaters were carrying Fate of the Furious on all their screens with at least one of them in English with Thai subtitles.  AND it was not crowded.

There really wasn't what you would call a story line.  Charlize Theron played the villain (very smartly) who kidnapped Dom's ex-lover and 'their baby', whom Dom did not know.  She coerced him to do her biding.

Special effects, something else.  When have you ever seen a nuclear submarine practically 'outrace' five cars while trying to destroy them?  The story started out in Cuba and ended up in a remote Soviet sub base.  Action thruout.

The movie has already set records at the box office and they expect it to break all the rest before it completes it run.

This is the first time I have heard of Kodi.  It looks interesting.  Thanks for mentioning it, Kowpot.  https://kodi.tv/ (https://kodi.tv/).

Increasingly, I find less and fewer movies will entice me to go to the cinema.  That's too bad because I really love the experience, almost regardless of what the movie is. I like the popcorn.  I would like a large diet coke with ice (if they had it).  I like the aircon and the dark room and the shared experience.

Thanks for the review, Frank.  When the cinemas at TESCO North first opened, I intended to include their listings.  However, there were so few movies with English soundtrack that I gave up on it. That's fine as keeping track of the movies at Central gives me enough to do.

Rex,
Once you get Kodi, you will probably never go to the theatre again. I also can watch all the TV programs I would be watching if I were still in the states.
 I can also get all the old classic movies and tv shows if I want to.
It is relatively inexpensive for an Android TV box. Internet is required or a strong WIFI. I have 3BB and it works great.  I would be happy to set it up for you, if you ever decide to get one.

Post by: Rex (Admin) on May 18, 2017, 08:20:42 PM
Yeah.  It's genuine Ridley Scott; a second prequel to "Alien" and explains where the aliens came from. "Prometheus" was the first prequel.  "Covenant" is a magnificent production visually and technically; state of the art film-making, really scary aliens.  The story didn't really grab me, but as I said, if you liked "Prometheus," you will like Covenant.

-----------------------------------

NOTE AS PERTAINS TO NOTHING:  I had not been out to the cinema in a couple of months and was vaguely looking forward to Maze Runner.  Maybe I was looking forward more to the popcorn than to the movie.  In any event, 30 min. into the movie, we began to see black pauses in the film for a few seconds at a time.  These became more frequent until the film shut down completely.  They got it started again a few times, but it kept crashing. Finally, on the last shut-down, I lost confidence that they would be able to fix it and walked out!  Shit!   (http://khonkaenforum.net/Smileys/default/cry2.gif)

[font=]I watched the first Maze Runner the other day and it was only the explanation at the end that saved it from being a Lord of the Flies copy and lifted it up to 6.8/10.[/font][font=&amp][/font]
[font=&amp][font=] I then watched the 2nd Maze Runner and it was far too samey for me so would only get a 5/10[/font]

[font=]However, reports are that the 3rd one out now is the best of the lot.[/font]
