film reviews and deluge myths

I had totally forgotten that the protagonist in Troll is named Harry Potter Jr, and is played by Atreyuuuuu from Never Ending Story , Noah Hathaway. The stories can fit together quite well actually, except that this movie was made in '86 before the Harry Potter series began. The upcoming Troll remake should be able to cash in on the success of the books by JK, no doubt. I enjoyed how much Troll reminded me of Howl's Moving Castle, with different worlds existing outside different doors in the apartment building, and the horny old lady thing. Totally epic, mytheopoic narrative like Never Ending Story, but not as meta.


Then I saw Ezra Miller (also in Afterschool) in We Nee To Talk About Kevin. Holy christ, this film is haunting. Good, though. Since Columbine and the long list of massacres that followed I imagine it is rare to be a high school student now and not let the fear of a hypothetical mass school shooting cross your mind. We Need To Talk About Kevin is arguably the first major film to deal with this topic. It's about the mother of a kid who shoots up a school and how she has to take partial (if not total) responsibility. Kevin is played by three different actors, all of them brilliant at mirroring their mother, played by Tilda Swinton. It's kind of about the mental illness of a mother who lacks the ability to love and empathize with her son, who then appears to hate her right back. And psychopaths lack the psychological capacity of empathy. We can't blame the mother, or can we?
Then I watched game of thrones, enjoyed all the male and female full frontal nudity, read The Hunger Games, saw both versions of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The recent one with Keano Reeves is a great recap of the Great Flood Myth, with the ark being multiple bubble ships like the one in The Fountain, and the storm being a storm of alien nanobots...I've been hearing more and more about possible earth catastrophes: volcanoes that could damage the atmosphere and take out summer for decades, (like in game of thrones!), the ice shelf falling into the atlantic raising the sea level 300 feet, the polar shift in the electromagnetic field caused by the earth alining with the new galactic center, the dropping of the magnetic field for three days of "darkness" where we will all lose our memories, the solar flare taking out everything electronic, the earthquakes igniting the volcanoes, and then, in real time, I here that the residents of Paula Mexico have been told to evacuate because Popocatapetl is beginning to erupt. On April 19, 2012 there were reports of superheated rock fragments being hurled into the air by the volcano.
