You have to admit though, there's something grandiose, about it. Imagine the magnificent view of everything occuring on a huge scale.
The only better end would be if the moon was hit by a massive asteroid and we saw it break into 5 or 6 big chunks and then seeing the biggest chunk flying towards the earth in the night sky with the sun shining on it, getting closer and closer...
See, it's his first movie and the budget was small but even at that, his artistic crew falls flat in even his higher budget movies. Thelma and Louise is terrible.
Now if you want to see a movie in the genre of The Duel really well done, to such a degree that it leaves no room for reproach then watch Charge of The Light Brigade, set in the Crimean War.
But then it's directed by Tony Richardson who also directed the amazing Tom Jones with Albert Finney, a movie that defined a new era in the western world, a movie that still dwarfs anything being done today.
Also I have to say I was disappointed by the uniforms. By the time the story takes place the French have cast off their filthy rags and they're damn well dressed. The movie just fails here, totally looks grubby compared to what could have been.
Once you've tasted the cold clear pure water from an untouched mountain glacier in the wilderness, getting a soda at the 711 fountain will never quite do again.
The cinematography wasn't up to snuff either. I'll forgive that though because it's an early work and the director didn't have a lot of money I think
The entire subtlety of the racial friction between the hot tempered but idiotic Gascon of the lower classes raised up by the Revolution and thus a Jacobin at heart is very nicely contrasted to the cool intelligence of the country gentleman; the tall blond Norman of the lower aristocracy and that is somewhat diminished, even lost in the movie.
Read the book, seriously.
The Gascon needs perpetual war, a perpetual duel or he has nothing. The Norman has a beautiful wife and a country estate to go to to enjoy and prosper in.
Big disappointment for me but then I'd read the original Joseph Conrad short story about 3 times so I had high expectations.
The entire subtlety of the racial friction between the hot tempered but idiotic Gascon of the lower classes raised up by the Revolution and thus a Jacobin at heart is very nicely contrasted to the cool intelligence of the upper middle class Norman.
Not if you want to just sit there working for somebody collecting a paycheck every two weeks like some castrated retard.
CA's can create companies, analyze companies watch their cash flows, they're master businessmen if they're well trained. He created a company with 4 other guys. Turned out three were insane retards and one was his bro. They owned a big oil well, it was a big strike. They were presented with a choice; pump her slow and collect money forever or pump hard and risk busting into an aquifer ruining the well. The three retards were greedy and wanted to pump hard. Him and his buddy sold out and four days later the retards busted the well.
When he sold out to the greedy retards, that made his fortune.
And North America's strategic planning means that this place will boom for the rest of your life regardless of what happens to oil prices.
Electrical Engineers, Mining Engineers, Mechanical Engineers (calculating the pipes being fitted to oil and gas rigs)
All pay well over $200k a year.
Time for a holiday in Calgary DB, it's not too late. I have a friend there, a customer actually who is 45, and he went from being a penniless farm boy to a Chartered Accountant, and now he's worth $35 million even after a divorce. I'm 60 and he's telling me I should become an engineer
Adobe AE applies filters frame by frame and the computer just chugs through and performs its compositing sequentially so yeah if PS can deblur AE can deblur too. And Adobe isn't the only software company offering this solution. There are other smaller competitors.
