One of the most terrifyingly existential movies you would see in your lifetime. The director presents the movie in a format where everyone would be able to relate to the lead character. The loneliness, the purposelessness of being in deep space, the retrospective opportunity that the eerie deep space provides us is appalling. Bullock's Dr. Stone is one of us - A human Who quickly loses her hope and a sense of reality when in despair. Clooney's Kowalski is a lovable beacon light whom everyone needs at their time of plight. When he says "You should see the sun over the Ganges" before he drifts off into deep space, you kind of miss him yourself. An example that life is to be savored regardless of pain or pleasure. One of the many reasons one must watch this movie. "Because either way, its going to be a hell of a ride" says Dr. Stone before finally deciding to give the journey a shot. So many life lessons. When Dr. Stone touches the ground we realize that we heave a sigh of relief along with all the other spectators. Thanks for a wonderful movie.
Beautifully designed and constructed movie. When we are wondering what more can happen to Asgard we get a bigger villain than Loki (or rather seems so at the time). The funeral custom for Frigga was the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen in recent times on screen. Wonderful mix of magic and science as always with Stan Lee's characters. Some of the keywords such as convergence or Aether are used as plot connectors (meaning: Any plot related question has two answers - Could be because of aether or could be because of Convergence). Still It is the emotional depth of the characters that hold the story together. Loki steals the show from all other characters. He mentions "You'll make that witless oaf king while I rot in chains?". I feel the same! What is Thor's part in this movie? He doesn't even kill the villain. Watch it for Loki and the production value.
Now why do we see Zack Snyder's Superman always depressed on screen? He is an outcast? He feels out of place?He is unable to use his powers for the good of mankind? He is concerned that his true self will scare people? He feels responsible for his earth dad's death? He yearns to be among his own?
How about all of them?
We See Clark reading Plato's "The Republic" when he is being bullied by some kids. That exactly has been the basis to the movie. The Republic has these conflicting themes - Are the just happy or are the unjust happy? Considering hypothetically that one is very powerful and can do anything and get away with it, would the person still be moral?
Morality is a key theme discussed in the movie.
When you call upon Christopher Nolan to write and Produce, he sets focus into the personal demons that pull back mankind and the likes of it. When one is an all powerful being such as Superman, only he himself has the power to act or to destroy himself. When Superman is torn between morality and Justice at the end when he needs to decide between killing and not killing Zod, that;s why he cries out, because he is Moral and only through Morality does he believe does justice exist.
Superman is truly the ideal that the mankind will strive for. He will be the symbol of Morality and the hope for living beings.
When you are already a 007 fan all this movie commands is respect. When you are not a 007 fan, you cannot help but marvel at a slick spy thriller. "What did you expect? An exploding pen?", asks a sarcastically geeky Q to James Bond. These are fine elements that bring us to a close to reality Bond. Daniel Craig mostly has a wry sense of humor as opposed to a sarcastic Roger Moore or a Classy Sean Connery. Like any good movie series, it pays homage to the classic DB5 with the old James Bond theme. Silva as villain fits the role like a sock, The final sequence at Skyfall motel is old fashioned and grand.
This movie is an example of how a single twist in plot can make you excuse all dull parts of the movie. The premise of the movie is based on a conversation of a potential pair of murder victims. Gene Hackman is a professional surveillance expert who hears this conversation. He is already over-ridden with guilt because of a similar murder for which he blames himself for. This is a cakewalk for Hackman, as he portrays himself as a private person and doesn't let out anything. This is a valid fear because even the tiniest information he leaks is used to his disadvantage. All together a fresh-plot movie.
