Skyfall (2012)

Είδος: Περιπέτεια, Σκηνοθέτης: Sam Mendes, Χώρα: Μεγ. Βρετανία

Ο Bond ξανα-ματα-επιστρέφει, αυτή τη φορά με τον Sam Mendes και έναν ήρωα πιο ευάλωτο από ποτέ. Το μόνο που δεν μου άρεσε ήταν ο Bardem, πολύ καρικατούρα. Και επιτέλους κατάλαβα γιατί αρέσει ο Craig…

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία (wiki): Skyfall is the twenty-third James Bond film. It features Daniel Craig in his third performance as James Bond, and Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the film’s villain. It was directed by Sam Mendes and written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan, and features an Academy Award-winning theme, sung by Adele.

The story centers on Bond investigating an attack on MI6; the attack is part of a plot by former MI6 agent Raoul Silva to humiliate, discredit and kill M as revenge against her for betraying him. The film sees the return of two recurring characters to the series after an absence of two films: Q, played by Ben Whishaw, and Miss Moneypenny, played by Naomie Harris. Skyfall is the last film of the series for Judi Dench, who played M, a role that she had played in the previous six films. The position is subsequently filled by Ralph Fiennes’ character, Gareth Mallory, though Dench would make a brief appearance in the next Bond film, Spectre.

Mendes was approached to direct the film after the release of Quantum of Solace in 2008. Development was suspended when MGM encountered financial troubles and did not resume until December 2010; during this time, Mendes remained attached to the project as a consultant. The original screenwriter, Peter Morgan, left the project during the suspension. When production resumed, Logan, Purvis, and Wade continued writing what became the final version of the script. The film won several accolades, including two BAFTA Awards, two Academy Awards and two Grammys.

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Είδος: Κατασκοπίας, Σκηνοθέτης: Kathryn Bigelow, Χώρα: ΗΠΑ

Ρούλα: Προφανώς βασισμένη στην αληθινή ιστορία…Πολύ καλογυρισμένο, με την κλασσική αμερικάνικη προπαγάνδα, αλλά καταπληκτική ταινία. Σε όποιον αρέσει το Homeland θα λατρέψει την ταινία. Πολύωρη ταινία αλλά δεν κουράζει καθόλου. Προσωπικά την είδα χωρίς να ξέρω το αντικείμενο της ταινίας, και νομίζω ότι αν δεν το ψάξετε θα σας αρέσει ακόμα περισσότερο.
Παύλος: Ένας στο χώμα, χιλιάδες στον αγώνα. Φοβερή ταινία.

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία (wiki): American action thriller film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal. Billed as «the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man», the film dramatizes the decade-long manhunt for al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States. This search eventually leads to the discovery of his compound in Pakistan and the military raid that resulted in bin Laden’s death on May 2, 2011. The film stars Jessica Chastain as Maya, a fictional CIA intelligence analyst, with Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler, Édgar Ramírez, and James Gandolfini in supporting roles. It was produced by Boal, Bigelow, and Megan Ellison, and was independently financed by Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures.

The film’s depiction of so-called «enhanced interrogation» generated controversy, with some critics describing it as pro-torture propaganda, as the interrogations are shown producing reliably useful and accurate information. Acting CIA director Michael Morell stated, «The film creates the strong impression that the enhanced interrogation techniques … were the key to finding bin Laden. That impression is false.» Other critics described it as an anti-torture exposure of interrogation practices.

Republican Congressman Peter T. King charged that the filmmakers were given improper access to classified materials, which they denied. An unreleased draft IG report published by the Project on Government Oversight, in June 2013, stated that former CIA Director Leon Panetta discussed classified information during an awards ceremony for the SEAL team that carried out the raid on the bin Laden compound. Unbeknownst to Panetta, screenwriter Mark Boal was among the 1,300 present during the ceremony.

Λίγα λόγια για την ταινία (wiki): A British-Irish drama film based on the novel of the same name by Tom Bradby who also wrote the film’s script. In 1993 Belfast, Colette lives with her mother and brothers, all members of the IRA. In the opening scene, set twenty years earlier, the Troubles results in the death of her younger brother when they are children. This presumably motivates her in later life. After a failed attack in London, Colette is arrested and offered a choice: either she spends 25 years in jail, thus losing everything she loves including her young son, or she becomes an informant for MI5, spying on her own family. Colette agrees to do so. An MI5 officer, Mac, is assigned as her handler. In return Mac offers a new identity to her after a period working for the MI-5. Soon Mac learns that his superior Kate Fletcher is using Colette to protect her mole inside the Irish organization. Mac tries to find the identity of the informer and protect Colette.
