All my cell phones (2001-2014)

I remember how I was very reluctant to get a cellular phone in the beginning of this millennium. I simply did not like the idea of having one in my pocket. I know, although I was only in my 20’s, I had some antimodern ideas at the time. The reason I got one was I moved away from my parents in the beginning of 2001, and of course I wanted to be able to talk to them when I or they wanted to. For the last fourteen years I owned ten (10) cellular phones, so let’s register them for posterity. :)

My first cell phone was a dark grey Siemens C45, which I bought sometime in 2001. I was so glad for that little bugger, it was small, handy and it never bugged me in any way.

My second cell phone was a light grey Sony Ericsson phone (either T or K series, I don’t remember), and I got it in 2004.

The third phone was Nokia 3120c, which I acquired either in 2006 or 2007. I was very happy with this one, because it was a very small and handy device, which reminded me a little of my first cell phone.

My fourth phone was Nokia 5800 and it was my first smartphone, which I bought on 23 November 2009. It cost me 1800 DKK. It was chubby and it had the horrible Symbian 60 OS, but in a strange way I liked it (not too much, though).

My fifth phone was LG Optimus GT540 and it was my first Android phone. I bought it on 4 December 2010 for 1099 DKK. I really loved Android OS and the phones design, but its screen was not great.

My sixth mobile device was LG E510 (Hub), which I got on 16 December 2011 for 1502 DKK. It was small (3,5″ screen) and I liked it.

The seventh phone was Huawei Sonic (U8650). I bought it on 10 April 2012 and I only gave 999 DKK for it. It was okay, but it was also quite a slow one with pretty crappy screen.

My eight phone was Huawei G300 which I got on 1 March 2013 for 999 DKK. It was the best smartphone I had until. It had a great screen and its processor was fast. The only negative thing was its somewhat erosive cover.

The next phone was Motorola Moto G (2013), which I bought in the beginning of 2014 for 1681 DKK. It was simply the best phone I ever had. It had a better screen than iPhone 5, it was fast and did everything I wanted it to do. I miss its great size, screen and the original KitKat OS version. My wife is now a happy Moto G user.

My current smartphone is blue Samsung SIII (I9305). I bought it on 5th October 2014 for 1499 DKK. It is a very good phone with a great screen, but I just don’t like Samsung’s heavy alteration of the original Android OS. I am content with it, but there is simply no the same “whao” as it was with my beloved Moto G. On the other hand, it does everything I need superbly and that’s what counts in my book. Currently I am running the custom Nameless ROM with Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop).

Statistik: Film i 2014

Som allerede skrevet, har jeg set i alt 106 film i det foregående år. Denne notering (og en masse anden slags, fx liste over de byer jeg opholdt mig i løbet af et år) har jeg foretaget i flere år nu.

Jeg plejer at give stjerner til de film jeg ser. De virkeligt dårlige film får en eller to stjerner, middelmådige værker får tre, mens fire og fem stjerner er forbeholdt til de film, som jeg synes er rigtigt gode. Med andre ord, 1 og 2 stjerner er virkelig dårlig, 3 stjerner er lig med kan godt ses, 4 stjerner har min klar anbefaling, mens 5 stjerner er forbeholdt mesterværker.

Film jeg så i 2014, delt i genrer.
Film jeg så i 2014, delt i genrer.

Jeg har inddelt alle film i syv kategorier/genrer: aktion, drama, thriller, gyser, komedie, dokumentar og sci-fi. Som man kan se i tabellen ovenfor, har jeg mest benyttet mig af 2 og 3 stjerner, som bedømmelsesparametre. Dette må betyde, at over halvdelen (16+38 film) af de film jeg så i 2014, var rigtigt dårlige, da jeg gav hele 54 film enten 1 eller 2 stjerner. Tre stjerner fik ca. en tredje del af alle film på listen. Lad os kigge lidt nærmere på hver en enkel genre.

Thriller
I det foregående år fik jeg kun set syv film. Over halvdelen var faktisk gode.  Den bedste var Enemy (2013) med Jake Gyllenhaal.

Thrillere
Thrillere


Drama
Jeg har set 32 dramafilm, hvilket er næsten en tredjedel af alle de sete film i 2014. Heraf fik over halvdelen 3 stjerner, mens blot en femtedel kan betegnes som decideret dårlige film, altså de film, som jeg gav enten 1 eller 2 stjerner. Den eneste film i hele listen, Locke (2014), der fik fem stjerner er også en drama. Det er den genre, som jeg umiddelbart er mest begejstret for, i hvert fald, når der uddeles stjerner.

Actionfilm
Jeg har i alt set blot syv actionfilm. 14% (1 film) har fået 1 stjerne, mens hele 72% (5 film) har fået 2 stjerner. Ingen film har fået 4 eller 5 stjerner. Den bedste film i denne kategori var The Purge: Anarchy.

actionfilm_2014
Hele 72% af actionfilm fik sølle 2 stjerner.


Komedie

Denne genre producerer åbenbart rigtig mange dårlige film, hvis man skal tro mine bedømmelser. Ud af seksten film fik kun Blue Jasmine fire stjerner, mens blot tre andre film fik tre stjerner. Hele 75% fik 1-2 stjerner.

Gyser
Jeg ser ofte gyserfilm med mine venner eller alene, men aldrig med min hustru, da hun ikke kan lide dem. Jeg så i alt 25 gysere sidste år, men kun syv af dem fik tre eller fire stjerner (28%). The Babadook (2014), Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) og Dead Birds (2004) er anbefalelsesværdige.

horror_2014

Sci-fi
Jeg er også en stor tilhænger af denne genre, men desværre er kvalitet også en mangelvare i denne genre, dog er situationen bedre end ved fx komedier eller gysere. Ud af sytten film fik otte film enten tre eller 4 stjerner (i alt 47%). De bedste sci-fi film sidste år var  Interstellar (2014), Predestination (2014) og Mr. Nobody (2009).

Dokumentarer
Normalt ser jeg langt flere dokumentarer om året, men denne gang er der kun blevet til tre.

Konklusion
Lidt over halvdelen af alle film (51%) var decideret dårlige film (1-2 stjerner). Det er alt for mange. Der er kun en film (Locke), der fik fem stjerner. Jeg må prøve at se lidt flere film, der vil få mellem tre og fem stjerner.

Filmovi u 2014.

Evo još jedne godišnje liste filmova, ovaj put radi se o filmovima, koje sam pogledao tokom protekle 2014. Po meni, najbolji film koji sam pogledao je britanski Locke (2013), koji je sa minimalnim sredstvima uspio napraviti istinitu dramu u životu jednog čovjeka, i to koji se vozi u svome automobilu jedne noći. To je ujedno i jedini film koji sam ocjenio s pet zvjezdica 2014. godine.

Od ostalih ostvarenja, preporučujem holandsku dramu The Broken Circle Breakdown, horor Dead Birds, Mr. Nobody, srbijanski Neprijatelj, klasik Kramer vs Kramer, The Babadook, kao i ostale filmove, kojima sam dao četiri zvjezdice.

Evo liste, ukupno 106 filmova, poredanih po hronologiji gledanja.
