Hello All,

The movie, NIGHT WATCH was quite good! Though it was a bit disappointing with the fight scenes! Recommend it though!!

discover they are playing this jewel today!, went there and all booked (did not expected it was going to be popular).

by the way did you know that some silly dude wrote in "Today" Newspaper that the movie left the plot unfinished (or something like that)... if any of you felt the same, it is because this is a trilogy.

going tomorrow after the Terry Fox marathon.

just want to say that russian cinnema is slow and dense (solaris almost kill me) but they know how to do atmosphere, russian cinnema i saw when i was a little human larva left deep scars on my feeble mind, which i consider a good thing.

for what i have seen this movie has a "La Cité des enfants perdus" kind of feeling and it is what "underworld" tried but not quite managed to finally do.

not convinced? well they say that this trilogy is to Horror what The Lord Of the Rings was to Fantasy.

anyone going tomorrow that will like an after-movie-coffee-talk?

thinking on going to plaza sing.

i am just returning from plaza sing now, i watched it and liked it a lot. honestly i was trying to like it even before watching it, which is not good, movies should be seen with an open mind.

since the LOTR, the concept of a big trilogy epic on the Horror and Sci-fi fields has been one of my santa wishes, as i am not a particular fan of fantasy. am betting on this trilogy for horror and the hyperion movie for sci-fi.

this movie is very well done, the camera job, editing and atmosphere is superb for this kind of movie, for those who have not seen it, please do not expect a fast paced "expensive" looking project with the editing skills of a nike commercial, which are not bad movies (ex. Fifth Element), but this is simply not on that trench.

i will say the plot had something missing, maybe this movie was meant to be longer and the final cut sacrificed a lot, considering this movie a 1:30 run and the books are described as very complex and deep (have not read them, will do soon) on a time were 2 and 3 hours are almost the norm itis quite a shame this one was just 1:30, as far as i know the next one is the DayWatch, so i dont know how much of the nightwatch hanging plots we will catch.

with the exception of the little fella (Yegor) the main characters are hard to love, it remembers me the Strange Days movie and it is something i like.

the most important thing for me is that using a very exploited theme seen on many genres from comics to computer games (something else is out there, humanity is unaware of a endless struggle, etc, etc). this project grasp it very well and includes new building blocks, without overusing cliches and making a "more of the same" boring movie.

one more thing, i does not has any "Cité des enfants perdus" feeling, the decandent Moscow (as presented here) it is creepy enough, and steampunk would simple wont do the trick.

next one on my list is Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm. Normally i go to the cinnema on Satuday.

Wondering.......

Postby Shazers » Mon, 19 Sep 2005 12:01 pm

Hey Hibri2,

Kinda of agree with you... Though I was expecting more fight scenes like in the movie, The Matrix..hahaha Also, I found it funny that Olga did not have any special powers considering that she was an owl!!

Just wondering what part of the world are you from? Or you local?

Shazers
Just curious :D

me?

Postby hibri2 » Mon, 19 Sep 2005 1:43 pm

i am craving for the books now, as i imagine they will complement (or is the other way around?).

about Olga, i hope to see more of in the next movie, she "seems" powerful enough for the chief to release her in order to babysit the seer, don't you think?, and why was she punished? is she a dark other? you know, many many questions!!

about me: i was born in Panama.

daywatch it nightwatch 2, the trilogy is NightWatch, DayWatch and DuskWatch.

each one touches a single side of the epic.

DayWatch looks promising for me as i kind of liked the dark others.

by the way i was taking with my boss about this movie and next day he gave a NightWatch PostCard! (dont know how he got it), such a nice fella.

lets say:
1-i needed a change.
2-i like Asia.
3-S'pore is such a perfect city, it is a city thats behaves as a city and not as an urban jungle. so it is a good spot for a Base of operations to explore around (refer to reason #2).
4-the food here is just the best :D
