I watched these movies. It’s basically the apocalypse out there, so why not watch a few more?
Kind of felt like a compendium of indie rock music videos which is not necessarily a bad thing. I had to rewind several times to make sure I understood what was happening. That didn’t help. I have zero clue what happened. Did it matter though? I still enjoyed the journey and the music choices even if the whole affair depressed me even more than a usual movie in quarantine.
Way ahead of it’s time. In a dumb kinda way. Tom Selleck fights iPads, Alexas and Roombas TO THE DEATH!!! He hates these dumb, household robots. It’s clever foreshadowing in that this is where we are as a society, but it’s so silly watching Selleck tackle boxy computers. Silly... yet highly entertaining.
This movie makes about as much sense as a Tsui Hark film starring Van Damme, Dennis Rodman and Mickey Rourke! I continually had to remind myself I wasn’t dreaming while watching. It’s delightfully zany. Rodman’s basketball puns and strange anecdotes win me over in literally ever scene. Post-plastic Rourke is the perfect villain even though I have no clue what his agenda is. I still have zero understanding of any of the character relationships. I can’t mention anything about the finale without spoiling one of the greatest action set pieces possibly of all time. Must be seen to be believed.
Everyone was wrong about this movie! It’s complicated, nuanced and has all the flashy panache you’d expect from Tony Scott. At the base level you have a totally wild and unhinged performance from De Niro. Snipes grounds everything with a very even and honest effort. The insane score from Zimmer bounces off tracks from the completely outrageous soundtrack. The songs that were picked + the style Zimmer crafted = ear trauma! I love it! You’ve never heard a score or…
