I wanted to like it but it this film was just appalling, in fact it was utter drivel. 98% of the Rotten Tomatoes critics were obviously under the influence if they liked this film. I applaud the other 2%. In fact I'd say this film was exactly the same as the 1995 flop Waterworld except this time they switched from the sea to the desert. Waterworld was actually a far better film compared to this tripe. Anybody who fancies the film I can sum it up in one line "nutters drive from one place kill each other along the way and do the same when they drive back". Virtually no dialogue, no character development....nothing. Crap!!!!
Reeves will never win any oscars for his acting, however, he does seem to pick roles which fit with his skillset. John Wick is one of these roles he is perfect for i.e. the lone assassin who doesn't say very much. This is your standard revenge, action film that plays out like a video game in parts. Loads of gun fu and bad guys getting slaughtered within the context of a criminal world which sets its own code of rules. A good, slick and fun film for a popcorn night.
When I watched this film I immediately thought that 12 Monkeys had pinched the idea from this film. Low and behold it was the inspiration for 12 Monkeys according to the review of this film. The film plays out as a narration of still black and white photographs and was way ahead of its time back in 1962. Not a film for everybody but a film which everyone should watch.
Caught this late night on Film 4 and what a gem of a movie. A cross between semiotic analysis and paranoia. The most interesting piece of analysis for me was the theory that it was Kubrick who was the architect of the (supposed)faked moon landings. I take it on board that it may just be about the human brain making patterns where there are none. However, to simply rule out these patterns of analysis as paranoia seems foolish. Film has long been a vehicle for subversive influence and hidden meaning. Watch the film and make up your own mind. There is also some amazing imagery to behold when The Shining is played in reverse and overlayed on top of the film played in a normal linear fashion. A definite for the collection.
Wasn't a huge fan of the 1st reboot of this franchise but lets face it, its a world apart from the Tim Burton disaster. "Dawn" picks up from where we left off and this film is gripping from start to finish. I especially loved the musical score which resembles the score from the very first Planet of the Apes movie. Can't wait for "Rise".
Visually stunning and looks just like a Frank Miller comic transferred onto a giant screen. Violent, disturbing, comical and raw. Can't fault this comic book masterpiece.
Free Sky movies for a month and I had always wanted to see this movie. Finally found 3 hours to watch it. I remember reading initial information about the film and they were struggling to edit down a 5 hour version. After watching this little understood masterpiece I'd love to watch the original vision (if it exists). Cloud Atlas captures the imagination from the start and flirts with different timelines in history throughout the film. Anyone looking for a linear film should stay away from this as the stories jump all over the place. I'm sure this film will get the recognition it deserves in the future. A great film about quantum social evolution. Wonderful.
Every now and again a film comes along that surprises you. This is one. I can see why people are calling this the new Star Wars. All I'll say is go see it. Its pretty darn cool and funny.
Like a good DJ set , Godzilla teases you, plays with your emotions then slaps you in the face. Fans of the original 70's cartoon will relate to this movie. Bit of a slow start but good to see a holywood blockbuster taking a risk and developing some narrative for a change.
I wasn't too sure about this one because I wasn't that thrilled about the first instalment. I'm pleased to report my faith has been restored. Garfield excels as Spidey and is supported by a very believeable cast. Some great story building and the 3D effects were immense. I'm on board for number 3.
Great popcorn film which is full of suspense and magic. Keeps you guessing right to the end and some tasty projection mapping in the final scenes. Glad to see there is going to be a second film.
A very satisfying piece of dystopian storytelling and an interesting vision of the future where language and territories are truly global. People of the world are ruled by genetics and those who are left behind are outcasts from society and the city. We are not far away from this vision. Considering this film was made in 2003 its premise is becoming more and more accurate each day. The production values aren't much and the cinematography could have been better but still a very watchable film.
When a film is made which is a reboot of an original film you will always compare it to the original. This re-imagining of the original film concept isn't to bad at all. The pace of the film is slow in places and there is an over concentration on the process of how Robocop becomes Robocop. I was expecting more action than what was actually in the film. Nevertheless, what action was in the film was slick and well put together. Critically, what I liked more than anything was the dystopian theme which was running throughout the film. There was also some nice little references to the original film which will please fans of the original. At the end of the film I was left with the impression that they want to do more with this franchise and it felt like this was the beginning of a bigger picture. One thing that concerns me though is that Oldman, Keaton and Jackson made it all worthwhile. If these guys are missing from any future films will the franchise survive. Probably not.
People were saying this was the best Bond film to date etc etc etc blah blah blah. Slightly better than Quantum but not as good as Casino and not a patch on any Connery Bond film. Skyfall and Bond was as confused as the social situation is today in the UK. In one part of the film Bond was for England (love of country). We find out Bond was Scottish (possibly) and at the end of the film he is standing gloriously next to the Union Jack. Some nice action scenes but all in all a pretty shallow film. More substance please, less confusion.
Of all the franchises being re-booted I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Star Trek re-boot is the best by far. There is enough reference to the previous Star Trek films without it going over the top. More, more more please.
World War Z doesn't waste any time getting into the action, 5 minutes into the film and its all out action, well paced, some jumpy moments and some edge of the seat stuff. I was surprised to read this is Brad Pitt's biggest grossing film to date considering some of the negative press the film received. All in all a superb film and well worth a watch. I remember reading the end of the film had to be re-shot and you can tell this was hurried. Nevertheless, still one of the best zombie films about. I hope they do a couple more.
The best bit about Iron Man 3 was when it ended, utter drivel
KIlling Them Softly is uber stylish. Its one of those films you are going to love or going to hate. There is no middle ground. The violence, which is graphically portrayed sometimes, plays second fiddle to the themes and dialogue. KTS is one of those films which portrays what goes on in the America we don't see and hear about. Beautifully shot, tense and atmospheric. Loved it.
Decent enough popcorn flick, entertaining and keeps you interested all the way through. However, Gangster Squad is one of these films where you get the feeling there is something missing. I couldn't quite put my finger on it but a bit more character development would have made the film better. Watchable.
