THis was one of the best animated movies that I've seen in along time . I'm not a big fan of anime ,but I appreciate originality and "Memories " isn't like the Japanese animation that you see on television .Katsuhiro Otomo , the director of "Akira " directs with other two animators this collection of shorts .The first "Magnetic Rose " Takes place in the future , it's my favorite .The animation it's splendid ,full of details and a subtle use of CGI .The opera music was very effective to support the dramatic story .The second "Stink Bomb " ,takes place in the modern Japan ,and works very well like a dark comedy . The animation it's very good ,just like the first .The third ,"Cannon Fodder " it's the most original ( and the most strange ) first of all ,the animation doesn't look like it were anime ,but it had a stylish and interesting appearance .The story follows the every day life of a family that lives in a society were every activity it's connected with the war . This movie it's a must see for every fan of animation .Even if you don't like anime ,I'm sure that you will find interesting material on this movie ,and proofs that animation could be art .
For the movie to watch on my 34th birthday,I decided to choose one of the movies that has been waiting years (!) to be played. In the mood for a Anime, I got set for a memorable viewing.View on the film:The lone story not written by Katsuhiro Otomo, the screenplay by Satoshi Kon for the opening tale, brilliantly continues to build on the recurring themes across Kon's works,in a compact form. Landing on a space ship whose distress call has been frozen in time, Kon welcomes the investigating crew with a eerie Horror atmosphere sprung from an increased blurring of dreams and reality (a major Kon theme) spun from Eva Friedel's memories haunting the ship.Writing the other two stories in this Sci-FI anthology, the scripts by Katsuhiro Otomo (who also directed the third segment) wonderfully link them together via dark satire and allegorical menace, with Otomo being inspired by the real Gloria Ramirez incident, in having Tanaka spread his deadly stench completely unaware, whilst Cannon Fodder charges up the existentialism of a meaningless/never ending war.Drawn from three different pairs of hands, the animation is linked to each tale with a incredible, hand drawn-animation clarity, from the detailed drawing of Eva's memories and the gas following Tanaka on every step he makes, to the smoke from the cannons of Cannon Fodder clouding the memories.
Most new desktop video magnifier models boast that they offer high-definition (HD) quality. This can refer to the resolution of either the camera or the display, but both elements must support HD for this feature to be beneficial to a viewer. HD itself is an elusive term. HD specs are expressed in several ways, and there is no hard and fast rule for what constitutes HD. You will most often see HD resolution expressed in terms of video mode, as in 720p, 1080p, or higher. Full HD usually translates to 1080p. There are multiple ultra-HD video modes, too, with even greater video resolution. Vendors often adopt terminology that differentiates their own HD products from the competition, or even from other models in their own lineup. Low Vision International (LVI), for example, sells its MagniLink Zip magnifiers with either a 720p (HD) or 1080p (full HD) camera. All HD modes put more pixels on screen than does standard definition, allowing the camera to capture a sharper image, and the monitor to display one, too. This comes in handy at high magnification levels, when text or small objects under your camera could otherwise look fuzzy. Crisp text is also very important when you use custom color modes to enhance the contrast of the screen image. We'll have more to say about color modes later.
The text-to-speech voice used by the Galaxy is the familiar Tom voice found in many screen reader packages. When I attempted to speed speech up past 100, I found that words were chopped off as I read product descriptions. I tried re-downloading the latest software update, and re-setting the unit to factory defaults, but I was unable to successfully speed up the speech rate. This isn't a deal breaker for me, as the default rate isn't terribly slow to my ear, but I would like to see this problem resolved.
