遇人不熟

31st Jan 2007 - 08:48pm 電影
沒有大卡士的明星﹐沒有華麗的特技﹐零五年日本電影「遇人不淑」卻比其他大製作的爛片好看﹐因為它回歸一套好電影最根本的靈魂﹐就是一個好的劇本。二個小時的電影發生於一個晚上的時間﹐導演分別從三個角色的角度先後描述同一事件。難得是三部份的故事絲絲入扣﹐編織出一個出乎觀眾意料之外的結局。這齣電影沒有刻意加插笑料﹐但言語之間流露出人生的諷刺﹐不同觀點對同一件事認知的錯落帶出荒謬的幽默感。誠然導演還是會玩些小把戲﹐加強電影的喜劇性。例如背景音樂因關門而突然停止﹐同一場面多次重覆出現﹐但每次也有微妙的差異等等。…

When I was fixing something with a screw driver yesterday, my hand slipped and I have a long but shallow cut on my wrist. Today I show the cut to my friends, joking that I was trying to commit suicide by cutting my wrist. My friend point out at once…

開機救星

昨天家中的電腦忽然hang機﹐reboot後開機畫面黑漆漆的﹐只看見這行令人恐怖萬份的白色字在螢幕上閃著Invalid System disk replace the disk and press any key天哪﹗我電腦找不到我的硬碟﹗跟據我多年的玩電腦經驗﹐這個錯誤訊息可大可小﹐小至BIOS設定出錯﹐大至硬碟報銷也有可能。幸好我還有另一台電腦可用﹐還可以上網找資料參考。出現這個錯誤訊息的主要原因電腦開機時﹐BIOS第一件時是找尋開機硬碟的Master…

死亡筆記 劇場版

24th Jan 2007 - 07:21pm 電影
在日本如果一套漫畫流行熱賣﹐必然會接著推出動畫版﹐電視版﹐真人劇場版等等再多賺一筆。早兩年連載的漫畫死亡筆記﹐憑著與別不同的雙雄鬥智為主的劇情﹐加上弄得全城鬧哄哄殺人筆記的話題﹐成為漫畫界紅極一時的作品。去年這套漫畫很順理成章地改編為真人電影版﹐分上下兩集放映。在電影還末公映前﹐最讓人感興趣是劇中死神的造形。電影中以電腦特效﹐把死神愚流和雷姆忠於原著地呈現觀眾眼前。其他角色的選角只是普普通通﹐幾個演戲一般的青年偶像。全部都女角是花瓶﹐只要樣靚就乎合要求。兩大男主角的人選則有待商榷﹐飾演L的那位演得好一點﹐只用演活漫畫中角色的怪異行為﹐做不到神似也至少形似。飾演夜神月簡直不合格﹐先不說他身材短小與漫畫中高大有型的夜神月差一截﹐最大敗筆是他演不出夜神月那份神髓。做不到時而聰明機智﹐時而陰沉奸險的表情﹐只懂不知是憤怒還是傻戇地皺眉頭。劇中最出色的演員反而是演夜神一郎的配角﹐那位老戲骨把父子親情與警察責任的矛盾演得活靈活現。…

Crossbone Gundam 骷髏高達

21st Jan 2007 - 10:54pm Daily Scribble
在高達官方的歷史中﹐ 骷髏高達並不起眼﹐只有短短六本的漫畫。雖然是高達教父富野悠季的作品﹐故事也是發生在原祖高達的UC世界中﹐但沒有動畫版的支持﹐只有高達的死忠支持者會知道其存在。這套作品由長谷川裕一繪畫﹐若隨便翻開一頁看﹐必定會給其簡陋的畫功嚇死。若嫌畫功不夠差﹐可以再看漫畫的機械設計﹐保證立即咒罵聲四起。高達一向是行軍事寫實風格﹐今次的設計完全令人大跌眼鏡﹐主角的太空母艦是隻中世紀海盜船﹐害我差點以為看錯夏古羅船長。敵方的機械人更是不論不類﹐以前渣古的雄風消失了﹐取而代之是幾隻鐵甲太空怪獸。唯一可幸的是高達由是Katoki設計﹐比起大河邦源男的高達帥氣得多。但是還是給弄了個骷髏標誌﹐破壞了高達原有的美感。若讀者沒有給這些恐怖的表面嚇走﹐倒可以發掘出骷髏高達的內在美。論故事劇情的吸引力和主題思想的深度﹐這套漫畫在眾多高達作品可說是少見地出色﹐水平大慨只是僅在0080之下。…
