Stanley Kubrick: brilliant films, but he also invented the iPad? - Volkskrant

By: Pauline Kleijer – 27/04/13, 10:56

© RV. A Clockwork Orange (1971).

Stanley Kubrick made brilliant films of lasting value. But he also invented the iPad? Five rumors that keeps cropping up again in the many books about him.

Few directors can measure in status with Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999). In live-born New York filmmaker was already a legend and fourteen years after his death, his work is still loved and much debated. Not just about his films, even the man himself his books have been written – hundreds in total. Some rumors is increasingly surfacing again. Thus, Kubrick was a perfectionist, a hermit and a visionary. What is it actually true

Myth # 1: Kubrick was an unworldly hermit

Status: false

As to the beginning of his career was Stanley Kubrick hailed as a major talent. From the sixties, when he made one after another masterpiece (Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001:. A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange), he was a real star. That reputation brought the necessary pressure with it. Both of his new films and about his personal life was full of gossip. Since Kubrick was his privacy and rarely gave interviews, he was the image of a hermit. The press had to do with the limited information that was there, making such a determination, time and again reared its head

A few facts were known:. Kubrick and his family lived on an estate in England, he suffered from fear of flying , and he was getting longer about his films. His projects were always surrounded with great mystery. If there is news came out, it was mostly about Kubrick extremely detailed preparation. Thus the image of an unapproachable genius who had locked himself in his house to work that never came down.

A picture where little knocked, witnessed many friends and associates later. Loneliness in all of movies created “He was in fact a complete failure as a hermit,” wrote author Michael Herr, who worked with Kubrick on Full Metal Jacket. Kubrick maintained numerous contacts, usually by telephone, but also in person. Friends described him as extremely interested and warmly. Two more persistent rumors that were not true: he had no fear of contamination and dared best to drive faster than 50 kilometers per hour


Myth # 2: Kubrick was a control freak

Status: where

Thousands library cards, scribbled with information about Napoleon Bonaparte, chronologically. Rooms full of cardboard boxes, piled up to the ceiling. Telegrams, faxes, letters, everything systematically kept. When the house was made of Kubrick, carefully open a few years after his death appeared full to a complete stop with archival and research material. Here the director for years engrossed in Napoleon (about whom he would make, which unfortunately never got off the ground a movie), but also investigated the most suitable for doors in New York (for his last film, Eyes Wide Shut).

Kubrick had always been a perfectionist – except at school, where he ran off the edges. Once he started making films, he wanted to keep control over all and had every detail correct. The older he got, the more he seemed to lose sometimes. Those details in Getting longer took the preparation of his films. Came in the fifties and sixties every two or three years a new film, between 1975 and 1999 he made only three.

The stories of his perfectionism are legion. So he could endlessly looking for the proper exposure in a particular scene, or at the last minute decided to paint. All decors in a different color For the costume drama Barry Lyndon he bought real clothes from the 18th century, so the costume designers could make. Exactly after For the same film he had developed special lenses so he could shoot by candlelight. And for a few seconds left image he assured anyone bring thousands of extras. He also continued endlessly refining the scenarios of his films, often just before the shooting, so the actors had to learn another text suddenly. Well it was never good enough for Kubrick – it could always be better


Myth # 3: Kubrick was a tyrant on the set

Status: Not true, or well, for some

‘Stanley was so different from how anyone saw him. He was so caring for me. Gentle. ” In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Nicole Kidman, who along with her then-husband Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut (1999) played, that Kubrick really was not a bogeyman if they had heard said. He could be demanding, she said, but that was a good thing. This closed Kidman in line actors who opposed the myth that Kubrick was a despot who are actors brought to despair with his outrageous perfectionism. Really, that was not so bad, they said. Jack Nicholson had no qualms, when he played in The Shining. The awkward Peter Sellers, star of Dr. Strangelove and Lolita, Kubrick gave all the space. There were more who said as Kubrick calls me for another film, I do it again

Where did that idea come from.? Kubrick was known to run around countless takes: actors often had dozens of times the same sentence say. That was not him, explained the director grumpy in interviews, but the poor preparation of the actors. Even physically he demanded much. It was some overweight; actress Shelley Duvall (The Shining) almost had a nervous breakdown, Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) became temporarily blind in one eye. Matthew Modine also wrote in his diary about the recording of Full Metal Jacket that Kubrick was ridiculously strict. For weeks doing the same scene, the camera move a few millimeters and start all over again, it was crazy Modine. However, he later said: “I had a good time with Stanley. He was a true friend. “

Myth # 4: Kubrick’s films are full of secret messages

Status:. course not

If you blink your eyes, you have the missed, but in the horror film The Shining carries the boy Danny as a knitted sweater with a picture of the Apollo 11. Enough evidence for many Kubrick-watchers to believe that the director had indeed staged the whole so-called moon landing in 1969 in a film – a story that has long made the rounds

Kubrick’s films always have plenty of room left for. interpretation, he would never let himself be concrete over it. No wonder there is speculation about the deeper meaning of such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining, in which some tribute to the Indians thought they saw, or a story about the Holocaust

Unfortunately:. The Most of the symbols that have been discovered, seem completely unaware by being conceived. Kubrick He may have been a compulsive planner, but still left many spontaneously happen on the set. Kubrick’s assistant Leon Vitali unveiled last month in The New York Times that pulling Danny was just taken by a friend of the costume designer one day. Vitali said most theories about Kubrick’s films complete nonsense. “Many decisions arose during the filming of pragmatism.”

Myth # 5: Kubrick was a genius

Status: where

Here we can be brief about this. Kubrick’s films are not to everyone’s taste – there are always opponents in addition to many fans. His work is called cold, aloof or incomprehensible. But the film exceptionally handsome fit together, is indisputable. Technically they were sublime and innovative, content always sharp. Even after more than half a century remains as a film Paths of Glory (1957) upright, and also classics like 2001, The Shining and Dr.. Strangelove have lost none of their luster. Not all Kubrick titles are masterpieces, but only a very talented director makes so many brilliant films of lasting value.

Myth # 6: Kubrick invented the iPad

Status: where

The major competitors Apple and Samsung have been in a legal legal battle over patents. According to Apple, Samsung designing phones and tablets copied, Samsung claims the opposite. Last year, Samsung’s lawyers with a surprising argument: not Apple, but Stanley Kubrick was according to them, the designer of the iPad. The proof is in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey 1968. In one scene aboard the spaceship flies toward Jupiter, to see their breakfast and now look at two astronauts … their tablet computers. The devices seem undeniably on iPads: they are rectangular, thin, flat, with a screen that comes close to the edge. Only the rounded corners missing.

Whether the computers really are, is the question. It would also wireless, flat TV screens may be. And whoso zoom the image, it looks at the bottom is a row of buttons that is missing in the iPad. However, science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke, who wrote the screenplay with Kubrick, the invention described and expanded ‘Newspad’ called

Kubrick also did not design just anything, the design of 2001. A Space Odyssey is famous for its foresight the director and his years of preparation, which he expanded immersed in aerospace engineering and computer science. Who while still taking into consideration that Apple’s iPod is named after the small white space vehicles from the film (the ‘EVA pods), know enough. Kubrick and Clarke share the credit for the invention of the iPad.

Lego Batman: DC Super Heroes on iPhone and iPad released - iphoneclub.nl

Lego Batman DC Super Heroes iPad header Superheroes storm the touchscreen. This morning came Iron Man 3 for the iPhone and iPad, and earlier this month we have fought with Superman, Batman, Robin, Green Lantern and more Injustice: Gods Among Us. That game took advantage of the comic book heroes of DC Comics and the same group will return to the now released Lego Batman: DC Super Heroes. You can be up to 80 characters and superheroes play in an adventure game is shrouded in a Lego sauce.

Lego Batman and Catwoman next iPhone Lego Batman: DC Superheroes came earlier from a variety of platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3D S. It is the portable version that served as a donor for the game on the iPhone and iPad. Which was criticized because he did not have the large open game world of the big brothers, but was still nice reviews because he had the co-op mode for two players on board. This function is unfortunately killed in the iOS version. What remains is a story mode for a player with a great replayability. In Lego games you play the first time with the heroes you play according to the story, but you can replay each level with all the characters you have collected. That makes for great additional features because of the specialties of the heroes.

Thus, for example, a Batman Batarang which he can reach higher places, Superman is equipped with its freezing breath and heat vision and Robin in a hazard suit ? Who carries a gun to opponents from a distance have vigorously. Lego Batman DC Super Heroes was the first Lego game where the characters talked, and that is put into the iOS version. It helps that the game is up to 1.33 gigabytes large. The YouTube account Touch Gameplay placed an impression of thick playing 40 minutes of the game:

Lego Batman DC Super Heroes can control in two ways. You can choose a traditional design with virtual buttons and stick in a virtual image, but also have a touch-option as an alternative where you tap more and wipes. If you are accustomed Lego games on TV, you will need some time to switch. The camera is much closer to the action on the iPhone and iPad, shows the characters more than the environment. The disadvantage is that the action feels a bit slower.

Like other Lego games, is also DC Super Heroes fun in a second session of play in one level. Or perhaps a third, if you have all the right buttons below the characters and thus get to know all the secrets of a level. Game Center achievements have behind the door give a lot to play. The latest Lego should perhaps not as works by the lack of cooperation mode be laughable if the big brothers, it’s a game you can play for a long time

FIGURES --- dots --- ocean At the beginning of a new quarter looks big business back on the previous months and give the shareholders and the press information on the sales of the quarter. This information shows how a company is doing, or not doing.

The iPad has long been a master lord, this model has the product form tablets and these models are still supreme in this market. But Android now begins to gnaw the legs from Apple because of the presented figures show that Apple’s market share has fallen.

quarterly Apple Apple 2013Kwartaalcijfers second quarter 2013: iPad still popular

Last night, Apple announced quarterly results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012/2013, the quarter ended March 30, 2013. around 23:00 Dutch time Although frequently seemed lately like Apple very bad to perform is have the exact figures yet (again) proved the contrary.

Apple figures generally

Most information can be found in this piece is of course the iPad specific. We do our best to Tablets Magazine to be natural as possible. But for the sake of completeness it is of course very interesting to also equally sharing.

the overall picture
  • Apple’s revenues: $
  • 43.6 billion

  • Apple’s profit: dollars
  • 9.5 billion

  • Number of iPhones sold: 37.4 million
  • Number of iPads sold: 19.5 million
  • Number of Macs sold: 3.95 million
  • Turnover iTunes / App Store: Dollar
  • 4.1 billion

iPad sales and sales – y / y changes

sales and sales iPadKwartaalcijfers Apple second quarter 2013: iPad still popular

Apple has sold in their second quarter of 2013 as many as 19.5 million iPads. These sales are responsible for a turnover of some $ . 8.7 billion Compared with the same quarter of 2012, the number of iPads sold has increased by 65 percent and revenue growth is 40 percent. It is almost superfluous to mention but Apple has more iPads than ever sold compared to the same quarters in previous years.

Compared with the previous quarter

Although not the best method is to measure it seems similar to the previous quarter, an increasingly popular way to be. Of course, you know that Q1 is the quarter where both the holidays (Christmas / Santa Claus: Presents) in it and sometimes new product announcements take place (this year iPad mini)


  • 2011: -36% and -38% sales units
  • 2012: -24% and -28% sales units
  • 2013 : -15% and -18% sales units

Despite frantic messages on the Internet is the difference between the previous quarter and the current quarter smaller than in ever. The ‘reduction’ in demand compared to gifts season is therefore entirely along.

Average price


The iPad 1 is replaced at one point reached by the iPad 2 and the sale. Then Apple iPad 2 continue to offer, even after arrival of the iPad 3 and even the iPad 4 . In the previous quarter, there is then also added the iPad mini . Cheaper and smaller version of Apple’s iPad The graph shows that the average selling price of iPads is on the decrease. From $ 662 to $ 449 at launch in the last quarter. This reflects not only the success of the iPad mini but also means that the iPad more and more people an affordable option.

Revenue from the iTunes / App Store

Apple has since last year reporting the turnover achieved from sales from the iTunes App Store and slightly adjusted. This change is the information we have about previous quarters not quite complete. I have only the information that Apple itself after the adjustment and associated recalculation has released included in my chart again. In addition to revenue from the App Store and iTunes Store are also income from licensing deals for eg lightning products and AppleCare included in the figures.

Yet it is clear to see that revenue is growing in this area, which can be just as well for developers, consumers and Apple itself.

very good news interpreted

There are currently 850,000 apps including 350,000 apps for iPad on the App Store. Apple has paid a total of $ 9 billion to developers. A total of 45 billion app downloads and unique, new apps downloaded at a rate of 800 apps per second (!).

Apple’s press release:

37.4 Million iPhones Sold, 19.5 Million iPads Sold

CUPERTINO, California-April 23, 2013-Apple ® today Announced financial results for its fiscal 2013 second quarter ended March 30, 2013.
