Train to Busan (Busanhaeng)
2 months ago via Flixster

As far as zombie films go there is nothing ground-breaking about Train to Busan but it is nethertheless very well done indeed. It reminded me a little of the excellent 28 Days Later in that the story is more about the relationships forged by those trying to survive the outbreak. Also to its credit is that the story doesn't necessarily go the way you expect it to.

High-Rise
High-Rise (2016)
4 months ago via Flixster

Very sexually explicit, violent but an interesting premise with a decent cast. You would think these are all good things but High Rise was way too weird for my liking. It is very possible that reading the book would help appreciate this more but films such as Snow piercer did a much better job of the hierarchy of society metaphor that this is trying to highlight.

The building that Laing (Hiddleston) moves into represents society with the rich at the top and great unwashed at the bottom. All is well at first but the friction between the floors turns ugly with the distance between the haves and the have nots growing with order failing and the building suffering as a result.

Plenty of (very nearly) naked Hiddleston and a line from Sienna Miller (with a horse) that almost made me spit out my wine weren't enough to save this film for me but others may well differ. Also add to this eating horse and dog and some dog drowning into the bargain. The story just felt overly muddled and went way over my head in all honesty.

O.J.: Made in America

Thought provoking stuff which highlights the cult of celebrity and the best and worst of human nature.

A sportstar placed on a pedalstool by the public to the point were he believed himself to be above the rules and laws that apply to most others. Someone who at the height of his sporting prowess shunned his fellow mans struggles only to heavilly lean on this emotion when the situation suited. Wrong on all sides and nobody emerges with any real credit. What this series achieves in my opinion is as much of a balance than it possibly could. A situation where even some of the right intentions are clearly wrong.
