The Qmodo of the last year is the Quasimodo again.
Made this photo with the mobile phone 3 times.
3 failures.
At least I've noticed it for myself.
After the film I got out the Canon.
The picture is the first try... no corrections afterward...

By the way: 303 is my best film of the year, currently...


I won't complain about the weather anymore.
I'll survive it or die at the attempt.
Waiting for the temperatures above 40°C.

They had enough water. Never too much.
But there are some new blossoms on the way.

Delphi, LaLaLand, Winter 2016/17

Camera:Medion MD87366
Online since:2017-02-14

I'm so sorry, but musicals in general and especially this time are not my favoured kind of films.
I've seen LaLaLand in the Delphi. No accident in front of the cinema this time.
If I would had been more mobile I would had left the cinema after 1 hour... maybe earlier.
So this film got a somewhat seldom ranking. Which is special in its own way.

Outside of the cinema workers already were removing the name of the film.
The LaLa of LaLaLand was standing somewhat pictiouresque on the way in front of a light pillar.
I thought it would had been a good motive.
So I freed the squirrel out of the knapsack and placed it somewhat over the letters.
But before I could make a picture one of the worker came by, put the squirrel back in my hand and removed the LaLa...

I made a photo of of the squirrel later at the Stilwerk ad, undisturbed.

By the way: I'm now proud owner of a Yorck card. Current points: 2...

The Kant-Kino in the Kantstraße.
Seen inside: "Only Lovers Left Alive".
An okay film, nothing that special.
But there were nice sayings in that film.
I don't remember any of them,
only the one which was also in the advertisings:
"We will have real big fun together."

By the way: Last year I've also seen "Blue Jasmine" and "Inside Llewyn Davis".
All in all it was a good cinematic year with "The Broken Circle" as the highlight.
One interesting thing: All four named films got English titles in their German versions.
This was also true for "Startrek: Into Darkness", "The Bling Ring", "Gravity",
"World War Z", "Ender's Game", "No!", "Before Midnight", "Django Unchained", and
probably some films I haven't seen. No assessment. Only a detection.

I have forgotten to put the links on the 2014 pages right.
There were already 13 bad accesses to them.
This should be alright now.
There is always something to forget, when the year changes...

At their front side they are promoting the new Startrek film.
I wanted to make that picture already five days before, but I left it.
At that day I was in that cinema.
I've seen "Oblivion" with Tom Cruise.
The pictures of that film were really impressive.
The action was somewhat ok.
A good film, but not neccessarily worth seeing.
I had seen it at 14'o'clock at a Monday.
I was nearly alone in that cinema.

By the way...
The real motive of the picture is on the right side.
I waited until it circled into view.
Its... somewhat funny.

They are really doing it. They are deconstructing the Kurbel.

Thereby a cinema would be more important than any market or so.
Thirteen movies I've seen in the Kurbel.
Sadly this is not as many as I've seen in the Kant or Delphi.
The last movie was "Source Code" in June 2011. Nearly one year ago.
There will be no more films in the Kurbel.
How sad.

I definately wanted to see the film "Berlinized - Sexy an Eis" after I heard of it in the radio.
Its world premiere took place in the frame of "Achtung Berlin" 2012.
In the Babylon Mitte. The picture was taken about 1/2 an hour before screening time.
I really got a ticket.
The big hall was full.
I felt like being in a scene in which I don't belong.
The movie was a bit mixed-up, a bit dirty, a bit loud and a bit funny.
Like the 90ies which it claimed to document.

"Midnight in Paris" is in any case a worth seeing film.

But I didn't felt uncomfortable this time.

Although the Tauentzien is not the Kudamm, though, this is another example for the downfall
of the Kudamm and the City West: The Broadway cinema at the Europa Center is closing after
more than thirty years of existence.
It wasn't my favoured cinema, but at least it was one of the few I could reach by foot.
I've only seen three or one or two more films in it, and it had normally a good program.
It is unutterable sad.

The entry of the Astor film lounge.
When I was in this cinema for the last time in January 2004, it still had the name Film-Palast.

"Pirates of the Caribbean" is running in nearly every greater cinema in this late spring.
For me it is one of those films which the world really doesn't need.
Much of talking which is not funny or whitty or informative.
No tension, actions which is most of all a repeat of the first part,
special effects, which are more strange than nice, and the 3D is more or less superfluous.
Mermaids with vampire teeth: what the hell was that supposed to be?
The music was somewhat disturbing. And the whole thing could have been also a Peter Pan film.
Really disneyesque.
No idea if I would like to watch a fifth sequel of this.

At that day I saw the film "Banksy", which has in fact the name "Exit through the Gift Shop".
It was the 25th film I saw in this cinema. The film was ok.

Four views from the Potsdamer Platz/Sony-Center, which every tourist might have more or less better in his collection of Berlin pictures. I'm still practicing. - The last motive was already a Berlin snapshot in 2002, but at that photo the sky was dark. In the night the Sony-Center simply looks better. - At the second photo I thought the reflection of the center roof was a malfunction of the camera, but from the chosen point of view the fassade really reflects the scenery. The third picture shows my favoured cinema. In no other cinema I was more often (in my life). At the day of the picture they played "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D and in the original version. A really nice film.

So this is the start of the 8th annual set. The very first one started also on an April 18 in 1999. The pictures from then are still rotting on my harddrive. Some of them are way better than the pictures I'm taking now. I think this is a matter of time. Currently the times for good pictures are bad. I have to wait and see.
