30 June 2010 <br>
I’ve always loved comic books, and X Men was a definite favourite. When the movies came out, I was also excited. Being the fan that I am, I hoped that they would stick to the original stories (they strayed a bit) but still they were fun and I enjoyed them. In any case, I felt like watching X Men this weekend and because Wolverine is my favourite character, you’re going to be subjected to my whims once again.

I don’t really have a good intro to this topic besides that I thought it would be fun. It turned out to bring a very wide selection of genres and proves that one word (or concept around a single object) can have a plethora of meanings.

With all that’s happening in the Middle East and North Africa, I thought it would be timely to do a topic on civil revolutions, uprisings, and protests. This is kind of a tough one because the context for an uprising could be a number of things, so I did my best to pick the suggestions given to me that seemed to suit current events.

I like to consider documentary as my specialty, considering that’s what the bulk of my work has consisted of and I love cutting it more than any other genre. That said, there is no right or wrong way to make a documentary. Ultimately it comes down to what you want the viewer to get out of it—taking the usual adage of "the story is king" to its limits by way of propaganda, persuasion, vignette, or other forms of storytelling. Sometimes, ambiguity is the story. I could go on...

Although I didn’t get to see a lot of movies in the theatre, I did manage to see enough to know that 2010 was a great year for cinema. From animation to documentary there have been some solid additions to the world’s cinematic library. Today I’m going to focus on dramatic features based on my reader’s suggestions.

When I was little I remembered Tron as being the coolest thing ever, especially since I was definitely a little geek at the time. On the surface it’s a bunch of cool special effects with a fun story, but when delved into a little deeper I’ve noticed that there is a lot of attention paid to the craft of filmmaking. This is especially true with the editing. The new Tron, upholds a couple of those attentions, but to a lesser extent.

As I’m sure you remember from last year, I’m a bit of a scrooge/grinch when it comes to Christmas. And frankly, I was looking forward to bringing you a Chanukah special instead of this, but this particular Christmas is a little nuts for me. So, I’ll get it next year, I promise (next time I’m hoping to do something New Year’s related... Don’t forget, I always welcome topic suggestions!).

Comedy is one of the hardest genres to cut, because it is, many times, up to the editor to sell the joke. Fortunately, there are a few actors that are true comedians in the sense that it is obviously natural to them, making the movie fun to work with. I can only imagine that the late Leslie Neilsen was one of those actors. The deadpan way in which he delivered his lines was so flawless that few actors have been able to match him.

Growing up as a little girl, I always wanted to be the good-looking archaeologist/adventurer... like Indiana Jones (though I wouldn’t complain about being Lara Croft, either). His tongue-in-cheek but painfully smart demeanour was something to look up to, and solving crazy puzzles leading to adventure in far away places was (and honestly, still kind of is) something to achieve in life. (Then that last movie came out... My reaction was similar to how the kids reacted in the TV show South Park.)

When I was a little kid I must have watched "My Neighbour Totoro" about a million times. I couldn’t get over the awesomeness of the big grey one with a leaf hat. Since then, I followed the new animated films that Studio Ghibli (the studio that created Tortoro) produced, and I ate them up equally as eagerly as I did when I was little. I got my hands on the complete collection this past week, and found that they created a wide array of styles and subject matter, some better than others. I’ve talked before about the fundamental differences in cutting animation versus live action, but looking a little deeper at the editing of Japanese anime in particular I realized that there are a couple of cultural differences that reflect in the editing as much as in the drawing styles.
