Films of the week: "007: Skyfall Coordinates", "Love" and "Silent Hill 2"

"007: Skyfall coordinates"(Skyfall)

Producer: Sam Mendes

Cast: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judy Dench,
Naomi Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Wishaw

Plot

During the next operation, M decides on a very risky order, which almost costs Bond's life. Despite this, Bond returns from the dead to become the main defender of M and the entire secret service in a fight with a terrorist psychopath from former agents. The matter is complicated by the fact that Bond is seriously injured in his right shoulder, so that he has to literally deal with the enemy with one left.

What do we get

Progress in comparison with the previous series of Bond - "Quantum of Solace" - is evident. In Quantum, the producers seemed to be trying to carefully copy the successful moves of the breakthrough Royale Casino, which determined the secondary character of the film. Maybe they realized the mistake, or maybe the leadership of the new, much more powerful director Sam Mendes affected, but Skyfall has the courage, which was not observed in the last part. The series decisively goes off the beaten track, again choosing on the territory in which he had not been before. In 2006, Bond made a successful bid by sending Casino Royale in the wake of a younger movie series about Jason Bourne. Then she got rid of a good part of the metrosexual glamor with shooting arms and explosive in high heels in favor of her knuckles broken in close combat. A larger fish reference has now been taken - the new Bond is undoubtedly inspired by the Nolan Dark Knight. Bondiana represents the best villain-psychopath in perhaps his entire history, does not want to exchange key figures, and international terrorism here miraculously turns to individuals.

"Love" (Amour)

Producer: Michael Haneke

Cast:Jean-Louis Trentignan,
Emmanuel Riva, Isabelle Huppert

Plot

The life of a couple in love in years changes radically when the wife is partially paralyzed and after an unsuccessful operation takes a promise from her husband not to send her to the hospital.

What do we get

The painting, which took the Golden Palm Branch of the Cannes Film Festival this year, is categorically not recommended for those who are intolerable to see naked old people, old people walking by themselves, and old people in general, because this is what is shown throughout the film. In two hours, the camera almost does not leave the borders of one apartment, where rarely anyone appears except for a couple of old people who, having lived together all their lives, now learn to take care of each other in a new way. There are many moments in the film that cause sympathy and horror - it, consider it, consists of them: from awkward falls, a change of diapers, from a monstrous fear of loss of dignity. What is more there is only love. The whole film is imbued with the love of two main characters - and therefore watching it is only worse.

Silent Hill 2(Silent Hill: Revelation 3D)

Producer: Michael J Bassett

Cast: Adelaide Clemens, Sean Bean, Keith Harington,
Carrie-Anne Moss, Malcolm McDowell

Plot

A high school student goes to look for her father, who seems to have been taken by force to Silent Hill, a damned town populated by monsters and sectarians, who constantly appeared to her in nightmares.

What do we get

The best that the second part of Silent Hill has is the monsters. They are spectacular and varied, they are often shown in detail, and in general it is clear what they did with love. The film is similar to the collection of Marilyn Manson’s clips, only instead of songs are absurd, frankly stupid dialogues, which is why it is not so much scary as it is funny. The stars of the last series appear in episodes - except for Sean Bean, who is unexpectedly many in the role of the adoptive father of the main character. Of the actor’s new acquisitions of the series, one can mention Malcolm McDowell and Carrie-Anne Moss in vivid Halloween images. Among the advantages of the tape - not bad places for processing in 3D format. Of course, the creators did not succeed in making the fog filling the city voluminous, but the black ash flakes floating in it translated into 3D beautifully.
