Alfred Hitchcock always made sure that he was appearing once in each of his movies. Probably first because it reduced slightly costs, then for the sheer fun of it.
It’s on January 12th, 1992 that, according to Arthur C. Clarke, was born HAL-9000, the computer from “2001, A space Odyssey” (the book from Arthur C. Clarke and the movie from Stanley Kubrick). Actually, the first time it was powered on. So, it is exactly 23-year old today. Happy birthday HAL-9000! HAL-9000 is an Artificial… Read More
A lovely movie that has been collecting awards for the amazingly beautiful landscapes and time-lapse sequences of night and day mountain images from the Canadian Rockies. Vimeo link I heartfully recommend this mountain photo-sequence or video; I don’t know how to describe it. But I love it.
I recently received an email from Tom Wrigglesworth inviting me to have a look at a recently published video. Usually, I let such requests go by (if they are not just caught and dumped by my anti-spam filter). Sometimes, I have a look at them. Today, I was stopped by the sheer simplicity of this… Read More

What is nice with short movies is that there is no time for sleeping it out. Dramatisation has to be intense. “Rien de grave” with Jean Dujardin fits the definition. Since it is in French, you will have to understand this language, though. YouTube link
You certainly knew that the great movie director, Alfred Hitchcock, was used to, first in order to reduce budgets, then merely for fun, keep one little cameo appearance in each of his movies, sometimes even a small role. An Internet user collected them all (nearly) in a single sequence. YouTube link
This is a very old age for a web site, but they actually started before the web, in 1990, as a set of scripts on Usenet group rec.arts.movies. Today, IMDB is a major web database full of details about movies and the movie industry. Happy Birthday IMDB!
The fashion of drawing fractals is a memory of the past (it was probably linked to the first appearance of computers able to collate the computing power for the needed calculations and the display capacity for complex images). But the pleasure is all mine to find this HD video which sends us into a Mandelbrot… Read More
