TRIANGLE - if you love paradox theory
« on: May 21, 2011, 03:01:29 AM »
Just finished Triangle, a film very unique with one scene (a mirror scene) that is as unique as any I have every seen in any movie - you will know the one when you see it. This film deals with paradoxes and the struggle of a woman who is trapped in a loop of time and place that is as horrifying to her as an inescapable dream (if you have ever had one) - this is one of those films that you just have to watch the beginning again after it is over and marvel at the editing and complexity of storyline.

Not saying it is perfect, but entertaining it sure is - good horror, a Hitchcock style film. Here's the long trailer, I don't think it spoils anything, but if you want to see everything as it happens, don't watch.

Okay... you Queued it... did you see it?? :)


PS...

I decided to do a movie review section - as if I don't do a lot of that, but I watch likely 40 movies or more for everyone I write about. I want to change that. Just for Flips and Giggles mostly, but I like to express opinion on the weak and the wonderful, as well as those that otherwise seem to slip through my fingers.

If nothing else, this will be a good section for me to refresh my memory on some of the forgettable films - so many have similar name and just as many leave Little impressions, having my own register of watched videos ( I hope to go back and do many of the ones I have already seen, not just those from here on out) having a catalog really can help work your memory, something I need because of health issues that a very dedicated member is going through now also.  The curse of Lyme's disease and its many faces are brutal to many, life changing and often result in personal challenges that few will ever understand.

So... I look forward to OTHER reviews when I post mine. I love to debate a good movie, and as in the simple yet brilliant mirror scene in Triangle, I think if we search for something unique and memorable, we'll find it in most films.

If she had only paid that taxi driver so she would not have to return................................

I liked it.   A lot.  She just could not get out of hell.   I will probably bring it this weekend to let the family watch it.   My wife only caught the last half of it and wants to see it from the beginning.

paradox  makes my head hurt   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Maybe you should sleep with a formic acid pad Kathy?  :-D

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Glad you liked it Allen, I hoped you enjoyed the mirror paradox scene as much as I did. Mirrors (think that was the name with Kieffer Sutherland had a scene that was kinda unique too, but it escapes me what is was - I had hoped when he shot the mirror toward himself that the bullet would him him as well as his image, it just kinda cracked the glass, not much imagination there.

will the formic acid help my head, or just kill me so i don't care anymore...which i guess would help my head...unless my head hurt a lot until i died.....then i could come back and not use the formic acid and just have the headache and you could tell me to use the formic acid and i could die.....and i could come back and step on a spider and have a headache and the world could end because it was a special spider and i never got to try to formic acid.....

just shoot me now................
