I really like the idea of Adam and Dayna reviewing this movie together. They didn't agree on everything but, that is a good thing. You get a chance to see different interpretations in the movie and different views of the movie itself. I love the idea of them walking together and connecting it to scenes in the movie. Good job!
More video reviews! I love this. :)
I like walking with Dayna and Adam!
It certainly makes me want to check out the film.
What lovely discussion without too much spoilage.
Thanks for this!
I don't believe the reviews on this film. the critics knew that this film was set to be one of summers blockbusters and they didn't want to see that happen so they deliberately gave it bad reviews as to make sure the audience wouldn't want to or would not go to see it. Do to not wanting to waste money on a stinker. I saw the trailer and it looked amazing. I want to see it and i'm not gonna let any jealous critic or prudish critic stop me
YESS!!! I love these movies, you get exactly what you came for, fast cars, cheesy dialouge, absurd action sequences, and gratuitous skin shown. It's gotten to the point where I think even the actors are in on the joke.
Check out this episode of the B.S. Report http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=6443190, it is THE definitive breakdown of the previous movie (and the whole franchise) by Bill Simmons and Adam Carolla. They will probably be coming out with another one shortly
Well put. The movie grabs your attention in the very beginning and doesn't let go until the very end. I wasn't sure if the movie had a point, Perhaps how things can go wrong or not how you wanted it to go when you try and do the "right " thing in life.
Hey! I'm the director of "Do Cybernauts dream of digital Love?" I wish I could have been in Rochester for the screening... Thanks for the nice presentation!
Not only is this movie exceptionally dull, but all the characters are like paper doll people. No one is likeable. The director seems to assume that we 'know' all the people, and not a single one has a defined personality, or has their role in the movie defined. It is also odd that the home looks in need of a coat of paint and a few more lighting fixtures. It displays yellowing age as it naturally would if photographed 70 years later, but not in its own day. 90 minutes wasted.
"There's a lot OF interesting material..."
this is the kind of cover that makes me want to pick up CITY paper! keep up the fresh, great work!
Does anyone from The City enjoy any form of entertainment from the mainstream? You guys may start turning people off with you über negative, highly critical (I obviously realize this is a film critique) and often times snide pieces of writing. I enjoy The City for the most part but sometimes some optimism and general happiness is necessary in the media.
Amazing review! I loved the movie and also saw the way bayona pulls attention to other extras showing that there are hundreds of other story out there! Grate review of a grate movie!
I agree completely with the review too... the film is a mess which misses the theatrical aspect... the soaring athems were all diluted and Javert the most complex character in the story just wasn't there. I was hugely disappointed
I agree completely with this review, and I suspect I was robbed by the theater I went to. In the version I saw, heads were chopped off or shown almost completely off camera and it was hugely distracting. I want to believe that it was not filmed this way, and that no diector in the world would shoot a soloists singing and only show their chin throughout most of the song! So I'm guessing that the guy in the projector room screwed up the ratio somehow? It was terrible and a great disapointment to me. Much prefer the Broadway version, here!
Very good review and I pretty much agree with your take on the movie. However, I actually thought that the final conversation with Paul Giamatti’s character was the only part of the movie worth watching. Giamatti’s performance was the only thing in the movie that actually intrigued me. I had never heard of this movie until a coworker at DISH recommended it to me. I saw that I could get it through my Blockbuster @Home account from DISH, and so I decided to rent it. I figured that even if I didn’t like it I could just exchange it in the store for another movie, so I had nothing to lose. I actually lost over an hour of my time and quite a bit of respect for Cronenberg, so I can’t recommend it.
Tarantino's gross disinterest in actual history turns me off.
The smugness I can take. The pretentious self-congratulatory film-making I can tolerate. But the utter indifference to the nuance of an era, let alone a reasonable sense of accuracy, just gives me a sad. After the Jews-machine-gunning-Hitler sequence that jumped Inglorious Basterds well over the shark...I'm not sure I'll even bother with Django.
Auf Wiedersehen pardner.
LIFE OF PI -- overrated.
I prefer nice young Jewish actors like Natalie Portman, Logan Lerman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, Andrew Garfield, etc.
I have to agree with the above comment. Where is Life of Pi? This was the best film of the year.
