Review: Boyhood is the most rewarding film I have seen at Sundance Film Festival. Linklater somehow manages to authentically capture 12 years of life experiences into a beautiful and moving 3 hour film. You feel a genuine connection with these characters as you watch them literally age right before your eyes. The Q&A afterward with Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Richard Linklater was incredible. Something tells me this is the movie everyone will be talking about throughout the year and I cant wait to see it again.the version I saw actually wasnt finished. There was no background audio, the credits werent done and there was no musical score – just a few temporary songs used to tell the audience what year it was (though I am praying they keep the arcade fire song, it made the ending absolutely perfect) I am also really curious what stuff they will edit out. 3-hour films consisting of pure dialog really dont sell well… Even still, it feels like one coherent piece thats epic in every way.

Review: OK big fan of the 1st one, and I do like the 2nd one (directors cut though) and I can also see why some did not like the 2nd, it has some issues but the main one was the ALIEN 3 problem, that been after Aliens and all its army and guns, ALIEN 3 was no guns no army……people wanted more of the same, which in this case its funny to see that a 3rd Riddick film which gives people Riddick vs monsters is getting its a rehash Not sure what people want from a film like this, its pure comic book action, and I loved it, but you have to see what they were playing with, less than half the budget of the 2nd film and half as long to shoot, this is a labour of love for the Director and Vin, by todays PG13 Hollywood standards its a miracle it was made as a R/15, as for the film itself they seemed to make good use of the low budget, some very nice setups and yes in parts the low budget shows but as a whole its good, and that about sums up the film…GOOD, I rate it higher than most of Joe public but I am a fan and get more of a kick out of it, and going by the others in the cinema the feeling was a good action film while fans came out great, been waiting ages for this, now give us a 4th, finish the story I will go see it again and look forward to the BluRay

Review: Finally! After that dreadful Transformers franchise, the Michael Bay who brought us those Bad Boys movies is back! PAIN & GAIN is pumped-up and hugely entertaining. Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie bring the old saying, in way over your head, to whole new level of hilarious. Their performances are like The Three Stooges with biceps. A crime comedy doesnt get better than this..PAIN & GAIN is your textbook Michael Bay, there are beautiful girls, fast cars, that 360-degree spinning shot where the camera circles the actors, plus its back in Miami too, the land of all kinds of colors and sunshine! Yup! PAIN & GAIN looks, feels, breaths, and benches like a Michael Bay movie, alright! Minus the giant robots, and thats a good thing in this case. I have to give props to the true story that became the basis for this movie, just the idea of three knucklehead bodybuilders chasing American dream and the mishaps that happen along the way because of their stupidity, its practically a formula for a laugh riot, it practically begged to be made into a movie. Plus its scripted by the screen writing team who brought us Captain America: The First Avenger, the humor that banks on the cluelessness of the three leads just keeps on coming and hitting the mark. What a great cast, including the great Tony Shalhoub and the rising star/funnywoman, Rebel Wilson who steals every scene shes in. That big girl is going to go places.Mark Wahlberg leads the pack, but this aint The Hangover, because all the three lead characters in PAIN & GAIN are idiots, thats the attraction, they think they have it all figured out, but they never think things through, so when things go haywire, theyre forced to improvise and when they do improvise, people get hurt and even after that, they still mess up in trying to cover their tracks, its the idea of stupid people trying to get a shortcut to fortune, some people cant handle such fortune, they mismanage it and theyre left hungry again. The film probably would make the late great Tony Scott proud too, because it moves like an A-D-D person, one scene moves to the next very quickly, which also speaks about how rash the three leads are in making their moves. Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, and Anthony Mackie have impressive comedic timing, you should see them panicking or cornered, their performances get even more intense. I hit the gym but I dont even come close to what Wahlberg, Mackie, and Johnson do regularly, perhaps. Their biceps have biceps, thats how ridiculously massive they look on the big screen, their belief in fitness is going to make you feel quite insignificant. PAIN & GAIN may have some commentary about American Dream, on whether or not those who do achieve it actually earned it, but in the end, its just a laugh out loud cautionary tale told through the style of Michael Bay.– www.ramascreen.com –

Review: Greetings again from the darkness. Its very painful to witness the aftermath of an artist who has surrendered. Rob Reiner seems to be the directors version of actor Nicolas Cage. Just keep churning out projects that require no effort, yet provide a paycheck. Pride be damned! This movie is clearly aimed at the over 55 group, and falls into the genre I fondly call gray cinema. Although a more fitting description of its genre would be insipid cinema. Its one of those movies that assumes anyone watching it has no interest in thinking, and only goes to the theatre for air conditioning and popcorn.Michael Douglas stars as Oren Little, a selfish, racist, bitter, lonely Realtor faced with the insurmountable life decision of leaving Connecticut for his lake house in Vermont. The only thing left is selling off his $8 million family house … until his estranged, former drug-addicted son shows up on his way to jail and drops off Orens 10 year old granddaughter (Sterling Jerins). Fortunately for the little girl, Orens neighbor is the kindly Leah (Diane Keaton) who embraces the girl despite Orens aloofness.Enough about the story … though it is written by Mark Andrus who also wrote the decent As Good As it Gets. If you were to subject yourself to this movie, you would see: Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton alternating between scripted, lifeless flirtations and scripted, lifeless arguing; a pathetic attempt at slapstick by having Oren deliver another neighbors baby on his sofa; the running gag of Ms. Keatons character breaking into tears while singing during her nightclub act; and a paintball gun used to ward off a dog doing business on the manicured lawn. If you dont overdose on lameness with those scenes, you should be warned that somehow a little boys penis is the subject for multiple one-liners. Somehow this even overrides Orens racism for levels of inappropriateness.Mr. Reiner has directed 3 classic films: This is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, and When Harry Met Sally. He also has some other entertaining films to his name including A Few Good Men. All of that just makes his last decade the more disappointing … a very kind word for it. I will never be convinced that gray cinema cannot be entertaining and thought-provoking. Douglas and Keaton shouldnt have to limit themselves to supporting roles only. However, if this is all they get offered, I recommend working personally with writers to develop projects that dont embarrass themselves or the audience.

Review: As the reviews indicate either youll love it or hate it. I loved it, my wife hated it. Quite a turnaround considering I wanted to see Robocop, but it was her turn to pick. Slow and confusing in the beginning but picked up speed after the first encounter of Peter and Beverly. The Characters were immediately likable and the two child actresses were captivating. Russell Crowe was great as Demi-Demon Pearly Soames. The visuals were terrific. It kind of made me think of Titanic with Demons, Angels and even a Pegasus replacing the Boat. All under the winter NYC backdrop. Pay attention to the dialogue because there were several of those oh wow – thats what that meant moments later on.

Anatomy, art and the body Copenhagen

August 31st 2014

Fra 18. September 2014, 13:30
Til 18. September 2014, 17:15

In collaboration with the Belgian Embassy in Copenhagen, BRAINlab organises a symposium on Andreas Vesalius. This year, it is precisely 500 years ago that this most famous anatomist, and author of the Humani Corporis Fabrica, was born. In order to commemorate this event, we will have a symposium on “Anatomy, art and the body”.

Our symposium will will not only deal with Vesalius as the scientist, but also on how Vesalius’s work was important in linking medicine and art. The symposium is aimed at a broad audience, not only people working in the medical field but also basic scientists, artists, historians, philosophers and anthropologists. Thereto, we have managed to attract a number of excellent speakers, both from Denmark and other countries.
During the symposium, we will have a unique copy of the second edition of the Humani Corporis Fabrica, published in 1555, on display that is owned by the Panum institute. This will therefore be a unique chance for many of us to admire this beautiful book for the first time. We will also have other historical items related to Vesalius on display that the Royal Library of Copenhagen has been so kind to lend us. Finally, we will have the first official presentation in Denmark of the new edition of the Fabrica by Karger Press, Basel (http://www.karger.com/Book/Home/257469).
The symposium will be followed by a reception at the Faculty club, hosted by the Belgian Embassy in Copenhagen. Expect to enjoy some good food the stomach. Attendance to the symposium and ensuing reception is free of charge but prior registration is required. More information on the symposium program can be found via the following link: http://www.vesalius-500.dk.

The new monument and facial reconstruction

History can be deadly ironic: he, who in the beginning of his career went out looking for bones, to study the human body, had his own skeleton lost on a beautiful Ionian island. (Theo Dirix, Vesalius brochure, 03/2012 )

There is an existing monument at Laganas Beach on Zakynthos. Belgium erected this monument in 1965. The inscription reads: “To the memory of Andreas Bezal, the great Belgian anatomist, who died on Zakynthos, 1564. The association of graduates of the highest faculties of the University of Belgium.”

We have made a new monument of an écorché or flayed man (based on one of the écorché’s in Vesalius’ De Humani Corporis Fabrica) who is holding a skull partly facial reconstruction of Vesalius. to finance this project we have made a bronze portrait/half reconstruction based on known images of Vesalius and performed an ‘inside out’ facial reconstruction…
or should we say  ‘outside in’.

Pascale Pollier has made this work in collaboration with facial reconstruction expert Richard Neave, who is the founder of the Manchester method of Facial Reconstruction ( www.rn-ds-partnership.com). The sculpture was completed in April 2014 and is now in the process of being cast in bronze and will be a fitting tribute to the great anatomist. This monument will be placed ,on a plinth, made by sculptor Chantal Pollier, in Zakynthos  and hopefully further casts will be placed at other sites  in other locations  important to the memory of Vesalius.                                                    To fund this monument we have made several bronze casts of the original half reconstruction/ half portrait head of Vesalius and these bronzes will be given to sponsors who donate 5000 euro or more towards the new monument. For information on how to contribute and obtain a bronze cast of this portrait send a mail to; andreas@vesalius2014.be
