Falling, Falling Down.

No Country For Old Men was this year’s winner at the academy awards, telling the story of an aged cop in a Texas that is getting more and more violent and out of control. Of course, it showed again the mistakes of normal people and how these mistakes can cost them their lives, as featured before in Fargo. The Coens really like to show us how stupid we are sometimes. If I had to make a movie similar to No Country For Old Men in Shanghai, I would change the title to No Country For Weak Men. What happened yesterday explains this: After shopping around a bit on Huahai road with beautiful sunshine and a nice dinner at a low-budget italian restaurant keychain, my wife and I headed home to Pudong by subway in the evening. We had just changed to line 2 at people square and were in a pretty empty wagon, when a guy all of a sudden lost his consciousness and fell down on the ground, hitting his head on my wife’s back during that fall. What happened then really made me sad and angry. Nobody, nobody at all moved or did anything. Everyone sat or stand […]

综述: cj7 。

周星驰获得国际歌迷与他的上两部影片,分别是少林足球和功夫-尤其是十几岁的歌迷和人民在二十多岁。 cj7是他企图获得更年轻的观众,因为它的确是一个儿童电影-真是非常可惜! 被残酷地诚实, cj7是议员的更加疯狂的解释,迪士尼的blubber或flubber或其他任何名义表示,罗宾威廉斯喜剧是。 当然cj7具有更多的亚洲幽默,但它的方式更加关爱家庭,比他以往的作品。 周扮演一个贫穷的地盘工人,命名为钛,单独与他的儿子。 为了提供一个更美好的将来,他的孩子,他所花的每一分钱都获得了一个昂贵的私人学校为他的。 没有钱,是留给玩具,但幸运的钛认定一个大胶球上的垃圾站点,同时寻找物品,在半夜时分。 这’玩具’ ,最终认定其进入交给他的男孩,更是无法’激活’ ,它成为一个可爱的外星人正-混沌与乐趣的开始。 最大的问题,这部电影已是它的运行时间:当电影是找到它的正确发展步伐和速度,它已经结束了。 需时太久,为cj7终于出现活着,并脚踢在屏幕上,和周令太少,使用的,可爱的东西,在不同的场景。 有可能是三个开玩笑说,让你笑出来,但大多只需将以此嘲笑这里有丝毫动摇。 这有点搞笑,看看周引述他自己的旧电影,每一次在一时,但,是不是也有点太早是什么? 在2010年,功夫二是能得到释放-届时,我们大多数人已经忘记了c j7… 结论:时间太短了,太幼稚好玩。 **走出*****.

BlogBackupr: Awesome!

There’s a new web 2.0 service in town: BlogBackupr! It’s, as the name tells, a blog backup service. For free, daily backups! Currently, WordPress as well as Blogger.com are supported. All you need to do is register, put in the address of you blog and then give it the admin credentials, so it can perform backups. It’s still in the beta phase, and that has a good reason: Only text is backed up, not the theme, the plugins et cetera. But still, there are never enough backups, are there? After registering, this is the first thing you see after logging in: So the system understands what CMS you’re on and you can easily add more than one blog. If you click on export, you can download the Backup as a WP RSS, normal RSS, Text or HTML file. Nice! You can also view the backup posts: All in all, BlogBackupr is a great service. It’s great that it saves all posts, but I guess in the future, when it will be able to do even more (backup templates, wp-content, plugins, comments, …), I would even be willing to pay for it. Backups are always necessary (I got 3 different plugins […]

John Rabe – Little Report, With Video!

When Ben commented to my last post about the pictures from the movie John Rabe, I just headed over to YouTube to see if anything had been released there – officially or not. Sadly, I found no trailer – but a little report! DW, Deutsche Welle, was on the set reporting and seemed to have been allowed to capture some stuff with their cameras. Now the bad side: The video is almost half an hour long and over 60 megabyte big. But I watched through it and the John Rabe part is right at the beginning! So just watch it until the report of John Rabe is finished, the rest has nothing to with it anymore. Here we go: Related Images:We cannot display this gallery […]

Official John Rabe(约翰拉贝) pictures.

Most of my friends know what I’ve been doing during the last three months: working with the VFX team on the german movie John Rabe. Sadly, no trailer has been officially released yet so I don’t really have anything to show. But! ‘Majestic Film Verleih’, the company who will bring the movie to german cinemas this year (or so I hope) released 8 official press pictures. So here you go, a little something to feed your appetite in regards to this movie. 8 pictures! Dr. Georg Rosen (Daniel Brühl), employee of the german embassy, tries to handle the threat in regard of the chinese civilians in diplomatic ways.
