+2 LOL. Say what you want about the acting, but I loved her performance in general. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I thought her performance in the scene at the Empire State Building ruins where she reveals she is his wife was killer great. How could you not fall for her at that moment? That's good acting; I don't care who you are. And, by the way, Yowza! wink.gifsmile.gif

I know those feelings personally, and would say that they are best captured as entertainment in Vertigo, but I didn't get that out of those dreams; in a way I envy you your reaction.

I'm just geezerly enough not to have known in advance which young lady was which, but I must say Andrea does it for me. smile.gif

Have you seen her in Malick's To The Wonder?
She is quite superb.

As others have mentioned above, thanx for posting on this forum.smile.gif
I always look forward to reading your insights.

Did anyone else feel bad for the drones whenever they were shot or destroyed? Having them emote so much like Wall-E, R2-D2, and the turrets from Portal really gave them personality. Dare I say I felt their pain more than any of the humans in the film?

Andrea was, indeed, gorgeous throughout the movie. Her role required a certain stoicism for 95% of her screen time, but she still did what I thought was a tremendous job in those many solo scenes. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The 5% where she broke out was near her demise. In the fleeting moments after declaring they were not an effective team, she appeared quite different as she backed into and around the room, pursued slowly by Jack. In her distress she suddenly looked much younger and very vulnerable...for the first time.
I find both women quite attractive and certainly fine actors.

Oink, I haven't seen To the Wonder. It's description reads rather chaotic, but it may be worth a look it sounds like. Thanks.

I would be fascinated to read what your take is on this movie, and on Malick, in general.

If you care to post, here is a thread devoted to the movie:

FWIW, I suspect To the Wonder will be nominated for BP.

First, thanks for that great read with the insights into Oblivion. I've watched bits of it so far (on my big screen biggrin.gif) and it looks stunning, but I'm waiting for my sci-fi buddy to watch it with me. I did notice the amazing shallow depth of field and sharpness of the close ups.

But since we're talking about shaky-cam for a moment...

It truly got out of hand...when was it...late 90's in through the 2000's or so?....when it seemed every damned movie, every dramatic TV show, and every TV commercial looking for veritae, used that hand-held look.
I worked on one TV series a while back where they used it continually, so much so I was thinking 'how am I going to get through this whole season, watching this all day long?' Luckily for me they had viewers complaining about it, so they calmed the camera down for most of the season.

Anyway, what's most annoying is when I actually pay attention to the movement of the camera when this style is used. It's then that the utterly pointless movement sticks out so much: it's not like the camera looks truly documentary like, as if the subject is moving or the camera is rushing in to capture a moment. It just looks like a sort of pointless drifting, nudging and circling motions of the camera, utterly unmotivated. Drives me nuts!

So my question is: Is that "hand-held" or "docu-style" or whatever (does it have a name?) style of shooting specifically taught to up and coming cinematographers when learning their tools of the trade? Is there a sort of "this is how ya do it" lesson and most learn the same way of achieving that movement, or does everytime have to pick it up themselves and use his/her own style of handy-camming it?

Thanks,
I refer shaky cam as Blair Witch disease... Oblivion was a real treat, thoroughly enjoyed the whole production.

It is horrible and nausiating on a large screen

Last years jack reacher was a disgrace to the book and poor.
Ryan Gosling?
Really?
He plays the same character and voice in every movie and he is so monotone and emotionless.
