3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, but the main character has a terrific body, 22 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Love (Amazon Instant Video)
The film is about an astronaut stranded alone on a space station, within Earth's view, and how he slowly goes more and more insane, with each passing days, and his weak attempts to cope with this, after loosing communication with Huston. Apart from these scenes on the ship, the story is also punctuated by interviews with common folks who emit pearls of wisdom, t-shirt style quotes about love, relationships and how it is so much better to be with people than alone.
Like in my subject, the actor is really an eye candy and the sole reason I watch almost all of this film (and yes, at the end I just jumped forward to scenes where he's wearing shorts and completely lost interest in the story). He's very expressive through posture and sometimes mimic, not so much through speech. The lady he fantasized about is pretty chavy.
All in all unmemorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it., 22 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Cargo (Amazon Instant Video)
This is a great under rated film. Acting was good, CGI also (can't believe this was done so many years ago!). The underlying theme is wonderful, how far would one go to choose between reality (even when grim) and a perfectly crafted illusion, and what is really real for one's brain (are induced sensations a lie, or are they real because one feels them).
Regarding characters, it's just a handful of those, each representative for a typology: the opportunists, the programmer, the captain believing she can rule over other people's lives, the selfless doctor etc. The ship is cold and derelict, like, basically, the whole of humanity. It's not scary nor horror though. The dialogue is short and to the point, no wasted words.
And yes, it is in German, but the English subtitles are pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must be the best short stories book ever, 15 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Luminous (Paperback)
I first read this book ten years ago and I keep coming back to it. The plots are very good and it's obvious the writer has a scientific background and he's trying to go 'ahead of time' and predict what scientist will be up to in the next 20 years. Also, the characters are very developed which is so rare in short stories. I especially like "Reasons to be cheerful", the happiness recipe (choice and chemicals...).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very beautiful, 15 Jan. 2012
Lovely design, very beautiful, delicate and light. Most of times I forget I am wearing it. Very easy to remove some links, if the bracelet is too long. Unbeatable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it, 15 Jan. 2012
It's a great little watch, very delicate. Suitable for someone with thin wrists. The strap is a bit stiff, poking out on one of the sides, but I imagine it will loosen after few wears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 15 Jan. 2012
It arrived very fast. The mask ensures complete darkness, smells great, the inner silk feels great and the strap is very gentle. I could not imagine going to sleep without it.
