i live and breathe cinema
Well... It's a classic 2000s fantasy movie. Funny they placed the events in 2020... The chance of us having a dragon apocalypse by this year's end doesn't seem so unlikely anymore. I was very pleasantly surprised that McConaughey and Bale are both in this movie, and the main characters. For a while in my life, I used to mistake one for the other, they always seemed similar or maybe even identical in my eyes. Now I see the difference quite clearly and it's nice to see Bale with his natural accent and McConaughey with his, both at odds with each other.
Superb. If you think this is a pro-nazi movie, do your research. Taika Waititi is a jewish person. He mocks nazi Germany, nazis and Hitler in EVERYTHING in this movie. Everyone gives an excellent performance here, especially the young ones. So many hints and parallels, warm colours, good accents in pronounciation and colours and composition. Waititi’s ability to combine comedy with tragedy and serious, important topics is actually a talent. I don’t know who does it better (cos there’s nobody who can). I’m sad I didn’t watch this sooner.
