Sila se Probudila/The Force Awakens

Dragi moji pratioci bloga, dobrodošli!   

Ovo će biti prvi od mnogih (nadam se) članaka objavljenih na ovom blogu, tako da se nadam da danas nećete biti previše oštri prema meni. Obećavam vam na pocetku da cu se truduti da tekstovi budu zanimljivi i korisni, a svaka sugestija i kritika u budućnosti je više nego dobrodošla! 🙂 Ipak, na kraju krajeva uvek postoji prostor da unapredimo sebe i naš rad!

Iako filmovi i serije neće biti primarna tema ovog bloga, odlučila sam se da prokomentarišem aktuelna dešavanja u filmskom svetu i time probijem led, a sta je trenutno aktuelnije od dugo očekivane sedme epizode Star Wars-a odnosno Ratova Zvezda! 🙂  

Deceniju nakon što je poslednji film prikazan ili epizoda tri, fanovi su konačno dobili priliku da otkriju šta se dešava sa njihovim omiljenim likovima, po radnji filma trideset godina nakon. Ludilo iz galaksije daleko daleko odavde je bilo svuda oko nas neposredno pred premijeru! Počev od događaja koji su okupljali najvernije fanove, do prilagođavanja asortimana mnogih prodajnih objekata u duhu ove franšize, Star Wars smajlića na Facebook-u i mnogih drugih kreativnih načina dokazivanja lojalnosti ovom brendu, vladala je totalna euforija oko potencijalno najgledanijeg filma ikada!

Ja prva do decembra 2015 godine nikada nisam pogledala nijedan od šest delova/epizoda filmova Star Wars-a. Nikada me to nije privlačilo. Ne znam  koji je razlog za to. Jednostavno sam imala drugačiju sliku o njima. Ne radi se o tome da ne volim naučnu fantastiku. Šta više, obožavam je. Obožavam Igru prestola, Gospodara Prstenova, Hari Potera. Ali, nekako sam ipak više doživljavala da su Ratovi Zvezda previše apstraktni za mene, i da u njima ima previše, kako bih ja to laički nazvala, robota.

Usled odlaska na prvi dan prikazivanja ovog dugo očekivanog filma, odlučila sam da nema poente gledati sedmi deo nečega, ukoliko nisam pogledala prethodnih šest. I drago mi je da sam izdvojila 12 sati da pogledam svih šest delova. Ipak, šta zapravo može da se desi u tih 12 sati? 12 sati je zapravo 720 minuta odnosno 43 200 sekundi. Svakog minuta u svetu se pošalje 204 miliona mejlova, lajkuju se skoro 2 miliona postova na Facebook-u, 278 hiljada ljudi tvituje i 200 hiljada slika se upload-uje na Facebook. Tako da možete sami da izračunate koliko je 12 sati u aktivnostima virtuelnog sveta.

Zašto treba pogledati Star Wars? Evo nekoliko razloga.

  • Stvar opšte kulture. Jednostavno radi se o klasiku. Sigurna sam da je svako od vas čuo za Darth Vader-a ili bar neku od poznatih fraza: May the Force be with you, Luke I am your father i slično.
  • Priča je neverovatno maštovita. Prikazano je na desetine različitih svetova, galaksija, bića, jezika. Ipak, naglasila bih da ukoliko neko ne preferira i ne uživa u naučnoj fantastici, da verovatno SW nije pravi izbor za vas. Ali ukoliko ste uživali u Gospodaru, Poteru i naravno mom omiljenom GOT-u vrlo verovatno da ćete (ako već niste) postati i fanovi SW-a.
  • Fenomenalno su prikazane porodične veze. Dakle, kao i u mnogim sličnim serijalima, vlada rodbinska povezanost među mnogim likovima koje karakteriše kompleksnost veza koje su pokrivene velom misterije. Kako to obično biva, na kraju tek ukapiramo ko je ko i zašto su se određene situacije dogodile.
  • Konstantna borba između dobra i zla. Ovo je već tema koja je prisutna od kada znamo za sebe. Još od malena kada smo počeli da gledamo crtane filmove, okruženi smo time. Zanimljivo je videti šta to vuče ljude ka “tamnoj strani”. Realnost je da ipak ne možemo klasifikovati ljude na crno i belo. Svako od nas ima dobru i tamnu stranu sebe. Pitanje je samo koliko dopuštamo svakoj da se ispolji i to je upravo ono što je ovde sjajno prikazano.
  • Ovaj razlog je namenjen pripadnicama lepšeg pola. Zbog ljubavi. Zbog muške lepote. Zbog činjenice kako ljubav utiče na muškarce, na šta su sve spremni da učine zarad nje. Devojke, obećavam vam nećete ostati ravnodušne. Ne bismo očekivali da u filmovima ovakovog žanra viđamo previše emotivnih ljubavnih odnosa. I onda, skroz naprotiv, imamo jednu epsku ljubav koja se dešava, gde pratimo čitav njen razvoj kao i posledice koje se javljaju godinama kasnije. Kako ja to vidim, u srži SW je ljubav i celokupna radnja filma je posledica jedne “zabranjene ljubavi”.
  • Ovo je projekat koji je započet davne 1977 godine, kada je emitovan prvi film. Da, upravo to što mislite. Kada pogledate ovaj film, verovatno će vam neke scene delovati smešno, ali ne zaboravite da je film snimljen pre skoro 40 godina! Impresivno je videti efekte koji su korišćeni tada i zaista ne iznenađuje činjenica kako je ovaj film dostigao tako veliku popularnost i ogroman kult fanova.
  • Pravila gledanja filmova. Ukoliko tek počinjete da gledate, verujte mi da ćete biti jako zbunjeni savetima verinih fanova povodom redosleda gledanja. Jedan način je da gledate hronološki kako su filmovi prikazivani a drugi hronološki po trenucima dešavanja radnje. Da, da. Ali bez komplikacija. Najbolje je gledati onako kako je najlogičnije odnosno hronološki kako su filmovi izlazili. Jedina zanimljivost ovde je da su prvo izašle epizode 4, 5 i 6 a nakon toga epizode 1, 2 i 3, što je u kontradiktornosti sa hronologijom radnje. Ali, verujte mi na reč nekoga ko je nedavno odgledao sve SW filmove, krenite hronološki od prvog prikazanog filma pa nadalje. Priča tako više drži pažnju i određeni likovi vam postaju draži na ovaj način, kada se kasnije upoznate sa njihovom prošlošću.

Toliko za danas od mene. Ja sam uživala u SW filmovima a ja se nadam da ste vi uživali u mom prvom postu. Nadam se da ću nekoga od vas motivisati da pogleda, a meni preostaje da čekam maj 2017 godine i epizodu 8. 🙂   

Uskoro stižu novi projekti koje pripremam a više o tome možete pročitati na about stranici. Share-ujte i slobodno me kontaktirajte putem mejla ili društvenih mreža (više detalja na kontakt stranici).

Sila se probudila!   

Vaša,

Dear followers of my blog, welcome! 

This will be first of many (I hope) articles published on this blog, so please don’t be too harsh on me today. 🙂  I promise I will try to keep my posts interesting and useful. So, every suggestion and piece of  feedback is more than welcome! 🙂  After all, we can always improve ourselves and area of our work!

Although movies and shows won’t be the primary focus of this blog, I’ve decided to start with a pilot project with a focus on current happenings in the movie industry and with it, break the ice! So this post will be about the Star Wars mania/episode 7 premiere! 

A decade after the last movie, episode 3,fans finally got the opportunity to discover what happened with their favorite characters. Madness from the galaxy far away was all around us,even before the premiere! From the events that gathered the most loyal fans, toa customizing portfolio of many services in the manner of this franchise, stickers available on Facebook, and many other creative ways in order to prove the loyalty to this brand. Total euphoria was and is around the movie that potentially could be the most popular movie ever!
I never watched any of 6 SW movies before December of this year. I was never attracted to it. When I think about it, I really don’t know why. I simply had a different perception about it. It’s not that I don’t love Sci-Fi. I adore it. I simply love Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. But, somehow I always thought that the Star Wars movies were in a way too abstract for me andthat they were more oriented towards the male population.

Since I was supposed to go to the cinema in order to watch the episode 7, I realized that there is no point in watching the 7th part of something if I didn’t watch the previous 6. And I’m glad I decided to invest 12 hours of my life in order to watch these 6 movies. What actually can happen within 12 hours? 12 hours is actually 720 minutes or 43,200 seconds. Every minute we send 204 million emails, generate almost 2 million Facebook likes, send 278 thousands Tweets and upload 200 thousand pictures on Facebook. So you can do the math what you can do within 12 hours of social life.

So why you should watch the Star Wars? Here are couple of reasons.

  • First, it’s a classic. I’m sure all of you have heard for Darth Vader or the following statements: May the Force be with you, Luke I am your father etc.
  • The story is very imaginative. You have dozens of worlds, galaxies, creatures, languages. However, if you don’t like Sci-Fi then I don’t think you would like these movies. If you have enjoyed the Lord, Potter and my favorite GOT, than I’m sure you will become (if you already aren’t) the crazy fans of SW.
  • Relationship between family members is shown phenomenally here. So, as usual with the shows of this kind, many characters are connected through family. These connections are very complex and very mysterious as well. Then, at the end we can find out who is who and why certain things happened.
  • Constant fight between good and evil. This is the topic present from our very beginnings. Even when we were a kids and we were watching cartoons, we were surrounded with this topic. It’s interesting to see how and what is attracting people to the dark side. The reality however is that we can’t make these strict classifications. Each one of us has our own good and dark side. The question is which one we will allow to develop and in SW this struggle is shown absolutely amazingly.
  • This reason is for ladies. 🙂 Simply cause of love. Cause of male beauty. Cause of the fact how love is affecting the man and what are they capable to do for it. Girls, I’m promising you won’t stay indifferent. Usually we don’t expect in the movies like these to experience a lot of love relationships developed. And then suddenly we have an epic love in this movie, where we can follow the progress and circumstances of this love years after. The way I see it, in the core of SW movies is love, and everything that happened was because of the love that was “forbidden”.
  • This was the project that started back in 1977, when the first movie was shown. Yes, exactly what you think right now. When you watch this movie, probably certain scenes will look funny to you. However, do not forget that this movie was made almost 40 years ago. It’s impressive to think what effects and how the movie was made at the time. So I’m not surprised at all by the popularity and fans of this movie!
  • I promise you, you will be confused with it and so was I. There are 2 ways how you should do this. First one, and the most logical to me, is to watch it chronologically how they were published. However then you aren’t following the chronology of the activities in the movies. The thing is that first were published episodes 4, 5 and 6 and later episodes 1, 2 and 3. But if you want to believe someone who recently watched all SW movies, the best way is to watch how they were published. In this way you will have a better element of surprise but also certain character(s) will get attached more to your heart, if you get to know their past(s) later.

That would be all for today from me. I’ve enjoyed in SW movies and I hope you enjoyed my first post. I hope I will motivate someone from you guys to watch it. Regarding me, I have nothing else except to wait for May 2017 and episode 8. 

Soon I will be launching new projects and you can read more about it on my about page. Feel free to share this post and if you want to provide me with your feedback check out my contact page.  

The Force Awakens! 🙂

Yours,

Ketyy Lady

  1. Great article. Until the last year I was in the same situation as you. Never saw a star wars movie and never want to (and … me neither don’t know why).
    Hope to read your next article as soon as possibile! Keep going!

  2. Dear Ketyy with two yy 🙂 If you classify Harry Potter in science fiction (it is more epic, but there isn’t that description on Google right?), and compare with this movie in this respect, the Star Wars really are too abstract for you.
    And yes, the essence of each film is love, unrelated to genre 🙂
