1.Is that whats going on? Everything we do can someone else see. I am not sure I want to continue using the internet the I am using it. Yes now I am over acting I know. You can say “Didn’t you know that before you saw the movie” Yes I knew that but I never knew how can be done.
2.Yes we heard about people killing their selves from similar situations like the young boy in the movie, but this could have happened with out social media too.
3.I never waited to see Marc Jacob in the movie that was a big surprise and I didn’t notice that on the trailer. I am not sure about it and if Marc Jacobs needed to play on a movie.
4.I found very clever how the chatting was shown in the movie.
5.Last thing “Very today” movie. That what is going today out there with the Internet. People are addicted to social media,texting, watching. While they have dinner with family or friends they talk with someone else on phone tablets etc. I caught my self many times doing that and I don’t like it.
I posted my favorite song from the Disconnect Soundtrack CD !!! Enjoy
If you didn’t already know, Woddy Allen is not just an (amazing) actor-comedian-screenwriter-director; he is also a jazz musician. A clarinetist, to be exact.
From joining the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to the New Orleans Funeral Ragtime Orchestra, to providing the film score for his 1973 film Sleeper, Allen has established himself as a solid fixture in the jazz scene. For this reason, The Carlyle Hotel calls upon him to play with the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band and wake the Café Carlyle’s atmosphere up, every monday night from the September 10 to the December 17 (all last nights are already full).
I had the pleasure to see Woddy and his Band two weeks ago and, to be honest, if you are not a fan, don’t go! He is a legend and he has marked the art world with his movies and his personality, not with his music… He is a real good musician but he is not a legendary Jazz man. Don’t expect to see his usual funnyman quips and antics. He is another man when he plays.
He just played his part, weaving and bobbing in his seat. When the clarinet didn’t have a part, he stared solemnly ahead. On the contrary, his band was very “Jazzy” like a real New Orleans Jazz Band supposes to be. They played only one hour: too short!
For the finale, Woody favored us with a smile and a little song sung by him and his banjo player: his way to say “I’m so happy to be here”…
Woody Allen is a well-known figure and you go to the Carlyle just to see him, not to hear him. This night ruined but, it was a great moment and seeing this cinema’s legend is a thing which doesn’t happen every day.
According to the children’s book War Horse by Michael Morpugo.
At the eve of World War, the Young Albert leads a quiet life in an English farm with his horse Joey. But Albert’s father decide to sell Joey for the British cavalry. The animal then begins an extraordinary adventure in a big conflict.
Despite the obstacles he encounters at every step, Joey will change the live of those he crossed paths. Unable to forget his friend, Albert left the farm and joined the battlefield in order to find his horse and bring him home.
Why this movie ?
It is thanks to Katheleen Kennedy, the Producer of Steven Spielberg since 1982, that the filmmaker was aware of the play « War Horse » taken from the novel by Michael Morpurgo a British author. Steven Spilberg liked it and decided to transpose it to the screen.
Fourteen different horses ! For the main rôle of the horse, Joey, fourteen different horses were used by the production. They were trained together to ensure their symmetry and each little mark or stain was reproduced on all horses in order to hide différences between them.
A Holiday movie...
The output of Warhorse in United States was scheduled for mid-August 2011, but once the film was ready and the whole team was able to see Steven Spielberg himself was surprised at the result, which resembled , according to him, “a great holiday movie.” DreamWorks Pictures and Walt Disney Pictures have decided to postpone the release date to December 28, 2011, according to the holiday season.
Produced by : Steven Spielberg
