"Defiance" – Video Blog



  1. Hi there geeky dad. I saw your username over at the bloggeries forum and thought: A guy with that cool a nickname has to have got a blog I'd like. I don't think I was wrong πŸ˜€

    Anyway, your video blog! I'm not sure how you usually do movie reviews – if you do them at all – because I haven't looked at any more of your entries yet but may I request/suggest something? Maybe a teeny, tiny plot summary would be nice?

    As for English/American/where ever from actors who try to speak in accents: I have two very good examples where it totally worked and sounded believable:

    Kate Winslet in “The Reader”. I'm German and I hate hearing our own accent (Mine isn't too strong – yay!) and when my friend and I started watching “The Reader” (of course in English because who'd want a German dubbing of Kate Winslet anyway?) we were thisclose to turning it off again because her accent was so acurat. She had a better German accent than any of the Germans playing in the movie!

    The other example would be Alan Rickman in “Rasputin” where he fakes a Russian accent. Plus he acts brilliantly πŸ™‚

    Anyway, it was nice 'meeting' you and I'll definitiely stick around for a while to have a look at the rest of your blog πŸ˜€


  2. Sure thing πŸ˜€ I did my first reviewish entries without a summary until someone pointed out that it'd be quite nice to know what the movie is about before they read what I have to say lol I have to say, I'll agree πŸ˜‰

    Alright, I'll go and follow you on twitter now.

    PS: Is there a reason why these comments appear in a pop-up while the one to your entry about the video blog is right underneath the entry?
