EFC 2.05 – Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Feat. The Music of Alexiane

“I’m not asking you to die for me. I’m asking you to trust me.”

That’s A Very Nice Hat

“1 minute 10 seconds, a new record!” exclaims a halfling sized creature that looks like a cross between the ugly duckling and a gargoyle. Sgt. Laureline (Cara Delevingne) dizzily removes a bulbous, blue fluorescent jellyfish from her head and collapses on the dock inside a Big Blue subterranean cavern.

About

Feat. The Music of Olivia Newton-John

Welcome to Experience Film! A visceral, psychological perspective on modern cinema! Let me tell you how this whole thing works.

About once per month i’ll induct a new film into what i’ll call The Experience Films Collection.”EFC” for short. Here I’ll commemorate the chosen film by psychoanalyzing the lead characters and tenderly depicting the outrageous fortunes that encumber them. Continue reading “About”

EFC 02 – Frozen Inside Out (Part 1)

Feat. The Performance by Idina Menzel of “Let It Go” 

Inside Out is the 2016 Oscar winner for best-animated feature film, and it is the second addition to The Experience Films Collection! This film is everything an EFC film should be: smart, inspiring, emotionally compelling and psychologically adventurous. In essence, the kind of film this blog was founded upon. It will share its EFC spot with its Disney relative, Frozen. Follow along with the bouncing ball, as I use the emotions from the former film to personify the minds of Elsa and Anna in the latter. Continue reading “EFC 02 – Frozen Inside Out (Part 1)”

EFC 01 – Mad Max: Fury Road

Feat. The Music of Junkie XL & Avenged Sevenfold (in a special EFC music video!)

“If you can’t fix what’s broken you’ll go insane.”

“I am the one who runs from both the living and the dead. Hunted by scavengers… Haunted by those I could not protect. So I exist in this wasteland… A man, reduced to a single instinct: Survive”

Max has lost everything and everyone he cares about, save for his blood and his car. We find him wandering alone in a radiation-scorched post-apocalyptic desert. Soon he is captured by a mine-dwelling cult of psychopathic skinheads who siphon his “crazy blood” and commandeer his vehicle – the only two things he has left, seemingly.

Introducing Experience Film

“Charlie Don’t Surf!”

Hi there! I’m Ricky Vergais, and I’m here to give away this adorable little writing project of Jason’s. Why he’d want me, of all people, to try and pitch you a movie blog is a complete mystery. Personally, I think the whole premise seems absurd. I mean why would anyone want to read about movies when they can just go watch them? After all, isn’t that why movies were invented in the first place? To spare people the boredom of staring at a page all day?

But what do I know? I’m just a comedian, right? I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason for this whole charade. I sincerely hope you revel in Jason’s nostalgic blathering, even though I won’t. “Blah blah movies are so awesome! Blah blah blah.” Absolute torture, I’m telling you. Just consider yourselves warned. That’s all I’m trying to say. God, is this over with yet? I have a nice dry martini to return to backstage. Continue reading “Introducing Experience Film”
