Blake M Salemink Swimming in the waters a half hour drive from Hermione's house, Hermione found some special seashells. She thought they were remarkably different from regular ones, in that these sparkled and transmitted coloured reflections from the sunshine.
I realize that the pictures for the entry were a bit wonky. Hopefully it will look better for this entry. Potter and nim were your favorites of the year? Asghar Farhadi, who wrote and directed this masterful work, looks at the complex inner workings of individual desperation and pride.
These motivations are presented through characters that are not malicious but are just trying to get by. Furthermore, Farhadi casts no judgment onto the various imperfect players involved, seeming to understand that situations get complicated fast.
The truth becomes muddled beyond the comprehension of the law officers, immediate family members and even the two characters directly involved with the incident. Farhadi presents this as a fact-of-life, combining universality and the specificity of Iranian culture.
Every character is complex as the central incident and its aftermath unfolds at the same time as the breakdown of a marriage. There are no easy answers, no saints and no malevolence for malevolence sake.
A Separation is heated from start-to-finish and it is impossible not to get caught up in all its sprawling glory as our sympathies shift and hover, grow and lessen.
Reveals are slowly doled out with the skill of a deft thriller without getting caught up in any genre trappings. A Separation captures life in all its messiness.
Certified Copy Kiarostami A film of halves; entirely based in conversation, simultaneously light and heavy. It is a mysterious and ambiguous experience and the definition of transfixing. It is less about spending your time trying to decipher the exact nature of the central relationship and more about soaking in its essence, the conversation and the performances.
It is about appreciating the ever-shifting but always simultaneous presence of the multiple phases of a dense relationship.
While this is something that always occurs with film and is something we often take for granted, Certified Copy seems to exist for this purpose, and what a gift it is. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Honestly, I love this film as much as my number 1.
So think of these next 13 films as essentially being equal with each other in my mind. Part 2 represented the end of an era for me and the countless others that grew up a Harry Potter fan.
I grew with this series; the first film came out when I was fourteen. I may not have been a child as the franchise started it was through the films that I became a fan of the books, not the other way around but I threw myself whole-heartedly into the books and films, and my adolescence was positively littered with Potter-dom.
I still believe it is somewhat taken for granted that we were able to experience a franchise that ran this long and that stayed this arguably consistent in quality.
The Potter series means more than words to me, so to find that the final film met my expectations to the utmost was in certain regards more rewarding than anything else I saw this year.
The battles and buildup are as successfully epic as the seven films of buildup have sustained. The entire picture is wall-to-wall dazzling, enhancing Part 1 and striving boldly and confidently forth to its capstone conclusion. While nothing can quite match my first experience of it, it ranks in the top three of the franchise for me.
This series will be a part of me the rest of my life and I cherish my ability to revisit it at any time I please. Even more than Harry Potter where adults represent a large portion of its legions of fansHugo feels made more for adult appreciation than for kids. It has a central mystery, a mysterious key, automatons, a colorful cast of inhabitants and the rediscovery of a forgotten legend.
Martin Scorsese makes Hugo a singular film experience for several reasons, entirely making up for any uneven pacing or eventual anti-mystery.The Cahulawassee River valley in Northern Georgia is one of the last natural pristine areas of the state, which will soon change with the imminent building of a dam on the river, which in turn will flood much of the surrounding land.

(Nim-pha-đô-ra Tângs) The Vietnamese does not make it clear why Nymphadora objects to her name.
In the Japanese, Nymphadora's objection appears to be to the meaning 'Little Nymphette'. W. James Potter and Deborah Levine-Donnerstein ABSTRACT The central thesis in this essay is that validity and reliability should be conceptualized differently across the various forms of content and the various uses of theory.
Something that stands out in Project Nim is the way all the issues addressed (communication, animal-rights issues, nature of man, power struggles, etc.) is done indirectly, and through the telling of Nim’s story. For a film that asks so many questions, it is natural .
