Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Yeah, way more varied. It starts off surreal and funny and then not so much. Unforgiven is stark through and through except for some brief moments. I actually prefer Pale Rider (1985) to Unforgiven, it has some levity and heartwarming moments throughout.

But this, this is epic. Netfilx, so I lose almost nothing my watching it on computer monitor.

What the hell did I just watch? It just cut off, is that just Part 1? Holy hell, that was the nest western I've ever seen.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

On to Miller's Crossing, an amazing film. Is there a bad actor in it? I prefer the Coen's when they don't go full camp, I think they do that quite badly.

Albert Finney, incredible in everything he does. A Good Year (2006), directed by Ridley Scott. What's the fairly recent one where has dementia? I can't find it.

Albert Finney in The Dresser (1983)...

Yeah, Miller's Crossing.  Great performances, Finney, Gabriel Byrne, Buscemi, Marcia Gay-Harden...   Turturro.  One of Jon Polito's best roles.  The ending is like the end of the 3rd Man (Welles).  Great script.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Putting this here, because it's more cinema than soundtrack.

The great Nicol Williamson narrates The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. I played the crap out of these records in my early teens.

4 links...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTCq7Z55Eg4

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_u1O-sLA9Kw

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEqveZuU-eo

That performance is genius. Mark Hamill listened to that growing up, I bet.

Listen to it, and let it wash away all the horrors of The Hobbit by Peter Jackson. This is beauty, this is perfection.

Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold

It's even kind of pretty in German.

Weit über die kalten Nebelberge,
zu den tiefen Verliesen und uralten Höhlen
müssen wir fort, ehe der Tag anbricht,
das bleiche verzauberte Gold suchen.

No, that's hideous. I think it's lovely in German, but it is, in fact, hideous. Das bleiche verzauberte gold suchen. Ha! You could get stabbed for saying that in some neighborhoods.

OMG!  I have the 4 movies by Peter Jackson.  After the great LOTR movies I was looking forward to The Hobbit.

What a disaster The Hobbit was.
Thank you for this!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ I just think it's not the most graceful language at times.

-edit- I mean, it takes a skilled writer to make German sound pretty...

Goethe, Der du von dem Himmel bist (1776, from a 2 part poem written several years apart that he titled "Wanderer's Nightsong")...

Der du von dem Himmel bist,

Alles Leid und Schmerzen stillest,

Den, der doppelt elend ist,

Doppelt mit Erquickung füllest;

Ach, ich bin des Treibens müde!

Was soll all der Schmerz und Lust?

Süßer Friede,

Komm, ach komm in meine Brust!

One translation...

Thou that from the heavens art,

Every pain and sorrow stillest,

And the doubly wretched heart

Doubly with refreshment fullest,

I am weary with contending!

Why this pain and lust?

Peace descending

Come, oh come into my breast!

Even Goethe is struggling. 'Schmerzen'? Not very poetic. A great word for 'pain', though.

We're not even going to discuss 'Doppelt' and 'Erquickung'.

-edit- I gave it my best high-school German class from 40 years ago reading...

It wasn't a movie trilogy, it was a theme-park ride. Cliffhanger... cliffhanger... cliffhanger... Just call the Eagles in already!

Yea, it was suppose to be another trilogy and I was looking forward to something along the lines of LOTR.

Let's make it short.

Everyone leaves on their own Eagle, right after early breakfast.
The Eagles attack and kill the big bad dragon.
The Hobbitses fill bags of gold, leaving a huge pile to share the wealth.
They mount their Eagles and fly home.
All before mid-breakfast!

THE END

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

You forgot the (Wood?) Elves. That was a cool part of the book that got glossed right over in favor of snot jokes with the trolls (awful). They did do the Riddle scene in the cave with Gollum some justice, at least.

The problem with German poetry is that at some point in time they decided Goethe was their top guy, so his tone was set for almost everyone. It used to be Friedrich Schiller as number one, and that guy is one of the best poets of all time. I suggest his drama trilogy Wallenstein, that one gives Shakespeare a run for his money.

Yugoslavian?? Is that a language?

English grammar is kind of subtle and infuriating with strange exceptions, but surely German has enough grammar already?
Or were your they and we the other way round?

It's a joke, but if there were no political barriers between the countries that's what the name of the language would be. Yugoslavian.
Once you learn one of the languages you understand the others. Some think it's one language with local dialects..
With Slavic languages there are grammar things you didn’t even know existed if you only know Romance and Germanic languages.
