The Brumese Harp and Harold Lloyd


so fighting in a war sucks. but loosing sucks even more. espically if your japanesse. actually loosing a war probably sucks no matter who you are. but these guys didn't want to loose there honor. Thats basically what they have to live. and that's the film.
You start off with them hearing the news that they have lost. And how they have to tell other soliders.
It's a very intresting WW2 film. I think sometimes we often think WW2 films have to be these big bloated 3 hour epic films. Really there are alot of great ones that are more simple and alot more human. I espically notice that with people my age. and who can blame them with so many of them.
This isn't like that. It has a great sense of realism that alot of WW2 filsm only dream of. The director wanted it to be in color but the color cameras at the time were to clunkie. I'm really glad he didn't. I love how the black and white cinematography really works with this film. Helping it show a gritty realism to the end of a brutal war.
I hope people remember this film with they were expendable and the best years of our lives. it needs to be up there.
If you are intrested in WW2 this is a great film to check out. But if you don't it's pretty fucking good too. Honestly anybody will like this film. If you get a chance check it out. it's really dam good.


I don't know what it is about Harold Lloyd but I just can't get into him the same way i do with Chaplin and Keaton. hey I like him sure. I mean he's great. but I've never been blown away by him. Maybe I havn't seen something. like Safety first. which i do have on dvd but havn't watched yet.
I have seen I guess lesser works and while i do enjoy them i really don't see why people liked him so much. I mean he was the most popular of the silent comedians at the end. But he never got the artistic acclaim that the others got. I can defently see that.
But is it unfair. Is he forever like George in the beatles. sure he was talented but nobody ever likes him more then John and Paul. Maybe it is. which is kinda unfair.
I do like him though.
I think also he's way too clean cut. Like he has no edge making him alot harder to get into then Keaton and Chaplin who both did have alot of edge in them.
I don't know he's great Harold Lloyd maybe i just need to see more of his stuff. well we'll see.

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I
was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it

Have you ever thought about including a little
bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could
undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Very good blog!
