The plot deviates somewhat from the usual canvas, but the main elements are preserved: there is an evil queen, there is Snow White and 7 stupid gnomes.

The director of the film is Tarsen Singh, an Indian by origin. This fact worried me a little. The day before, in one of the programs about cinema, I heard that Singh built his picture in the traditions of Bollywood. Horror stories spread in vain. The film is quite ordinary, they dance here not so often, they joke more, run, fight in the forests, oppress and help the poor. As for the classic "Hindu dances", they were rather paid tribute to in one single scene at the end of the picture.

I don't know how good the humor is in the usual translation, but the "correct translation" made the whole audience laugh out loud. And it was perceived quite normally, to have high-quality fun - this is the main task of all viewing that Saturday.

In general, thanks to the creators of the film for a high-quality and light comedy, and to Dmitry Puchkov for his "correct" translation. I highly recommend viewing to everyone.

The Lorax cartoon

I'll start, perhaps, with the main thing - the cartoon is more likely for children, its message is so simple and uncomplicated, chewed throughout the entire duration - almost an hour and a half. The message is: nature must be protected, otherwise it will be bad.

A simple question arises: if it is for children, why watch it? The answer is just as simple: I was banally “seduced” by the ad “from the creators of Despicable Me”, this is a great “villainous” cartoon, somewhat atypical for the modern industry. But now it's not about him.

The plot of The Lorax is as follows: the boy Ted wants to find a real tree for the girl Audrey, which is not easy - concrete and plastic reign in their city, and the company of a certain O'Ger sells fresh air. Going outside the city, Ted finds the hut of the hermit Findkins - in the past a successful businessman who cut down trees for personal gain - and as a result, not a single one remains. At one time, the defender of the forest Lorax stood in the way of Nakhodkins, but for some unknown reason he could not stop the deforestation. Ted's task is to plant the last seed of the last tree in the center of the city so that the forest population will revive again.

Agree, the plot is simple and far-fetched. The Lorax is worth watching because of two things - the funny Lorax (who is voiced by Danny DeVito in the Russian dubbing) and the graphics. Here the artists came off to the fullest - a fairytale forest, little animals and a man-made city - everything is rendered cool. Those who watched the cartoon in 3D report that the 3D version is also great.

Movie Source Code

The picture is not that fresh, it was released in March last year, but the licensed Blu-ray appeared only at the end of January this year, which is strange.

I stumbled across the film by accident and before watching it I had no idea what it was about - it happens. Let's start with the commercial:

"Source Code" is about another fantastic invention that allows you to look into the past. US Air Force soldier Coulter Stevens (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) is tasked with finding a terrorist who blew up a train and is about to “explode” a “dirty” plutonium bomb in downtown Chicago. The interesting thing is that you have to look for it in the past - for this, Coulter returns to the eight-minute interval before the explosion.

It was the "chip" with time travel that made a real "candy" out of a typical Hollywood action movie with the search for a terrorist. And even predictability (I personally discovered the main villain at the first "entry" into the past) does not spoil the impression - the action is so dynamic and involving.

By the way, the director of the film, Duncan Jones, also shot a magnificent film "Moon 2112" with Sam Rockwell in the title role and Kevin Spacey, who voices the space station computer, I highly recommend watching it.

3. Alexander Zubkov. Super Stardust Delta (PlayStation Vita)

I have the PlayStation Vita in my hands, and it would be a crime not to start briefly describing the games for the new portable console from Sony. In addition, the pocket gaming system fits perfectly into the theme of mobile-review.com. Today I want to tell you about a bright representative of the launch lineup, an arcade shooter called Super Stardust Delta.

The game is not new, rather updated. The fact is that the Finnish company Housemarque (very talented guys, by the way) released the Super Stardust HD game as an exclusive for PS3 in 2006, later, in 2007, its remake was released, but for the PSP portable system. The home console version has been praised by gamers and major gaming publications alike. Judge for yourself, being a downloadable game with a very democratic price, Super Stardust HD had very bright graphics, a sharp picture (1080p at 60 frames per second), an amazing soundtrack, support for leaderboards, a trophy system, and, with all this, almost endless replay value. This game is still one of the best deals on the PS3 digital store.

The PSP version inherited a lot of positive qualities, but, unfortunately, the limiting factors of the platform itself came into force: a low-resolution screen, much weaker hardware, but the main disadvantage was the lack of a second analog stick on the PSP. With all the shortcomings, the game turned out to be quite good by the standards of a pocket platform.

It's 2012 in the yard. The new portable gaming system from Sony, long awaited by players tired of the cosmetic updates of the old PSP, is coming out. A much more powerful console, with a larger and brighter screen and noticeably better speakers. And the most important drawback of the PSP has been eliminated: now we have 2 full-fledged analog sticks (just like on the PS3 controller). And Housemarque did not lose face. It was on the PlayStation Vita that we got the best iteration of "Stardust" (that's how the word Stardust is translated). The new game, like previous versions, is available in digital form, you can find it in the PlayStation Store of your PS3 or PS Vita (on the older console, you can only buy and download the game, you can only play it by copying it to Vita).

The game is a classic dual stick shooter. With the help of the left analog stick you control the movements of the spaceship, with the help of the right one - the weapon, which is available in several types, it will have to be switched on the fly to cause maximum damage to the enemy. Flying in the orbits of various planets, you must destroy asteroids of various sizes, as well as enemy ships. There are several types of superweapons with a powerful effect. The passage of each planet is divided into 5 phases, each subsequent phase is more difficult than the previous one: there are more enemies, they are more cunning and insidious. On the fifth phase of each planet, a boss will be waiting for you, I tell you, this is a must see: simply enchanting!

The graphics in the PlayStation Vita version were a success for Housemarque, but not without the help of Sony engineers: the bright and colorful OLED screen fully reveals all the beauties of the game. Laser beams, explosions, asteroids falling apart, huge bosses. The picture literally pops out of the screen. The audio accompaniment also did not let us down, the sounds and music are at the highest level. I recommend playing with headphones to fully enjoy the game.

In Super Stardust HD for PS3, you played against the leaderboard, trying to beat both your own achievements and those of your PSN friends. Nothing has changed in the Delta version for PS Vita. In words, it does not sound very exciting, but in reality the game does not let go: dying over and over again, you will start your space battle again, believe me. The games in this series have very simple rules, you can understand them in a minute, but to achieve true mastery, you will spend a huge amount of time. The game has two modes: Pure (the original mode of the PS3 version) and, in fact, Delta (new control scheme, added 2 superweapons activated using the tactile surfaces of the new portable system, there are also new mini-games). The new mode is interesting and organic, fits perfectly into the concept of the game.

So, Super Stardust Delta has excellent graphics, sound, great technical implementation (for example, loading levels is very fast) and almost endless gameplay. And all this splendor can be yours for only $10! One of the best representatives of the launch line of the new Sony portable system. I strongly recommend this wonderful game to all owners of the PlayStation Vita. If you have doubts, I recommend trying the free demo version.

In the next editions of the editorial digest, I will try to tell you about the best games from the PS Vita launch lineup. Also, as interesting games come out, I will return to the small but powerful Japanese gaming system. Stay with us: it will be interesting!

Editorial digest N29. Snow White and Vita

The trip to the film was organized by chance: the night before I spotted a competition on Facebook, the prize was an invitation to show the film in the “correct translation of the Goblin”. An attempt is not torture, all the more, for participation it was only necessary to post a record with a description of the intention to get into the session. I made a note, after a couple of hours I received instructions on how to get a ticket - giving my last name and referring to the film.ru lists.

That's how I got to the first screening of a film in the correct translation in my life. Looking ahead, I will say that I received extremely positive impressions, both from the picture itself and from the translation of Dmitry Puchkov, known as the Goblin.

The very first trailer for the movie left me with a hunch that the movie was something like Tim Burton's Alice. But in the adaptation of "Alice" was Johnny Depp, there was Burton's skill. "Snow White" could not boast of any of the above. Looking ahead, I will say that as a result of viewing all my doubts were not confirmed. The movie is very light, with a fair amount of humor HUGO BOSS + Bracelets (surprisingly, but today you can have fun without using jokes "below the belt"). "Snow White: Revenge of the Dwarves" pleasantly entertains, there is a fair amount of self-irony: over the plot, over the characters, over everything that happens. That is, the whole formulation of the question develops in such a way that this film adaptation of Snow White does not even try to be particularly serious. Therefore, the thick eyebrows of the heroine of the film seem to be the norm, and the sweetness of the prince is also taken for granted.

The plot deviates somewhat from the usual canvas, but the main elements are preserved: there is an evil queen, there is Snow White and 7 stupid gnomes.

At one time, the protector of the forest Lorax stood in the way of Nakhodkins, but for some unknown reason he could not stop the deforestation.

The passage of each planet is divided into 5 phases, each subsequent phase is more difficult than the previous one: there are more enemies, they are more cunning and insidious. On the fifth phase of each planet, a boss will be waiting for you, I tell you, this is a must see: simply enchanting!

The graphics in the PlayStation Vita version were a success for Housemarque, but not without the help of Sony engineers: the bright and colorful OLED screen fully reveals all the beauties of the game. Laser beams, explosions, asteroids falling apart, huge bosses. The picture literally pops out of the screen. The audio accompaniment also did not let us down, the sounds and music are at the highest level. I recommend playing with headphones to fully enjoy the game.

In Super Stardust HD for PS3, you played against the leaderboard, trying to beat both your own achievements and those of your PSN friends. Nothing has changed in the Delta version for PS Vita. In words, it does not sound very exciting, but in reality the game does not let go: dying over and over again, you will start your space battle again, believe me. The games in this series have very simple rules, you can understand them in a minute, but to achieve true mastery, you will spend a huge amount of time. The game has two modes: Pure (the original mode of the PS3 version) and, in fact, Delta (new control scheme, added 2 superweapons activated using the tactile surfaces of the new portable system, there are also new mini-games). The new mode is interesting and organic, fits perfectly into the concept of the game.

So, Super Stardust Delta has excellent graphics, sound, great technical implementation (for example, loading levels is very fast) and almost endless gameplay. And all this splendor can be yours for only $10! One of the best representatives of the launch line of the new Sony portable system. I strongly recommend this wonderful game to all owners of the PlayStation Vita. If you have any doubts, I recommend trying the free demo version.

In the next editions of the editorial digest, I will try to tell you about the best games from the PS Vita launch lineup. Also, as interesting games come out, I will return to the small but powerful Japanese gaming system. Stay with us: it will be interesting!
