Today it’s only three weeks until the second Ramaskrik Oppdal film festival and I must say that this years poster design is pretty damn cool! Check out ramaskrik.net for more information consering Norways scariest film festival!
As 2011 is about to go not so silently into the night, it’s once again time to look back and try to recognize the 10 best films of last year. Well, again, the 10 best films I actually saw. It is almost a problem that I see so many older pictures and usually it’s frowned upon to include oldies in these type of lists. And I have yet to see films like The Artist, Nadir and Simin, Melancholia or Pina 3D. I’m sure at least one of those would justify a place in the top 10, but hey, it’s a new list in 2012! So, without much more of the ado, here is the list! And just to mix things up a bit, the films are presented in the order they were seen.
Another Year Mike Leigh would quite possibly have topped this list if I started with number 1. As always with his films, the main selling poitn are the performances. What is the film about you might ask, well it’a actually just another year. Thats all. But the last scene of the film is what’s really doing it for me. It captures the films essence in a way that I have never seen before. If you havn’t seen it, come on! Just see it already.
Umulig å si hvor denne først så dagens lys, men jeg har stjålet den fra Whose Roses Are Those.
Noise Addicts has shared the rules to a fun way to name your band, choose your album cover art and name your album, with a little bit of randomness, and some help from Wikipedia, Flickr and Quotationspage.
Here’s how it works:
- Go to Wikipedia and hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band.
- Go to “Random Quotations”. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page will be the title of your new album.
- Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days”. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
They’ve got a library of album covers with the post, and they are actually on a par with a lot of actual releases.
If you give it a try, leave a comment with what you came up with!
