Originally I wanted to blog some cornell box
screenshots today, but didn't have the time to do them, they are delayed for tomorrow. So instead here are two movie recommendations for the weekend maybe. If you have a girlfriend/wife and are suffering from the constant problem of finding a movie which is ok for both of you (we don't like love stories, they don't like zombies) I can recommend Un long dimanche de fiançailles
, or better known as 'Mathilde'. Nice mix up of World War I and love story (see, I didn't compare it to 'Amelie'). The second movie is a complete different one, we
watched it yesterday in the cinema.
Originally we wanted to watch Borat
and already had the tickets in our hands but when we discovered that the cinema only offered the translated Borat movie, we decided to go for Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth
'. The movie is nothing more than a filmed lecture about global warming. Sounds boring, right? In addition, it is filled with IMO totally unnecessary excerpts of the resume of Al Gore himself. And furthermore if you are informed about environmental problems, there is not very much news for you to see there. But the movie is very good anyway. It simply throws plain facts at you and summarizes everything about global warming in those few minutes. Very informing and sometimes quite shocking. And if this wouldn't be enough: Some minutes from a Futurama episode are shown there too ("Solving the problem ONCE AND FOR ALL!!" (youtube.com)
). So now there's no excuse left for you not to see it. :) Here's the trailer (youtoube.com)
