Polish films have their place in Summer Film School due to a close cooperation of some of our film institutions, if I´m not mistaken. Therefore I saw two very neat films from the polish production. Since I don´t have enough material to make a separate article on the german films I saw (I saw one, … Continue reading Summer Film School – Polish and German Films (plus one I´d rather not talk about)
British Heritage Film was one of the sections included in this years programme. I saw five pieces from this section and all of them were packed. Originally I wanted to start the whole festival experience with A Passage to India but since it took me like five years to find my acommodation, I hadn´t managed … Continue reading Summer Film School – British Films
Sweden was a big part of this year´s Summer Film School. Daniel Bergmann, that Bergmann´s son, was among the guests. I´m quite ashamed to admit I haven´t attended a single event with him, or at least a single movie, for reasons I don´t remember anymore. I assume it was so packed I wouldn´t have gotten … Continue reading Summer Film School – Scandinavian Films
Though I´m not hyper into my own country´s cinema, I couldn´t actively avoid all the czech and slovak stuff that appeared on the SFS programme. In addition to that, one of the most famous slovak actresses (I dare to say the most famous slovak actress ever), Magda Vašáryová, was one of the guests and I … Continue reading Summer Film School – Czech and Slovak films
A big part of this year´s Summer Film School was science fiction and thanks to that I saw a few gems I would´ve missed completely otherwise. Several of them were introduced as „films that got buried by Matrix because they happened to come along in the same decde“. Matrix was screened too, if I´m not … Continue reading Summer Film School – Sci-fi
Uherské Hradiště is a smallish town pretty close to my home. Yet it took me, a student of film, three years to get off my butt, pack the sleeping bag and go to the, I dare to say, biggest summer film event we have here in our lovely country. My friends either work at Summer … Continue reading 43th Summer Film School – Visitor´s thoughts and impressions
Is the graphics department on drugs? Might be. A little. Perhaps. I am no expert in this area so I can´t really judge or give any constructive criticism but I have seen some people who are experts in this area to claim the new poster for Thor: Ragnarok is horrible, and since I agree with … Continue reading What on Earth is happening to the Marvel posters?!
I liked Tobey Maguire´s Spiderman, I liked the Green Goblin and I liked Doc Oc. I´m trying to forget about tthe third movie and I´m succeeding. I was indifferent towards Andrew Garfield´s Spiderman. Occasionally something downright bugged me about those movies. The villains were both forgettable and with more or less questionable motivations and I … Continue reading Thoughts on Spiderman: Homecoming (2017)
Hello! I´m so damn full of myself that I have to publicly announce an important thing just happened in my life. I passed my state exams and I have a degree. It´s the tiniest degree which doesn´t in fact mean much, but it´s an opening to the bigger one, so yay me! I´m Bc. now. … Continue reading Exams passed!
London Has Fallen is an action movie made in 2016. It´s your everyday action flick, with explosions, choppers, allmighty tough guys and so on. Gerard Butler plays the undestructable bodyguard of Aaron Eckhart´s moderately hardcore occasional damsel in distress (more on that later), the president of USA. Tha fall of London was preceeded by the … Continue reading Thoughts on queerplatonic/homoromantic subtext in London Has Fallen
