The Empire Strikes Back is easily the best Star Wars film to me it feels better made than the others whilst keeping the character interactions plentiful and enjoyful; not to mention the climactic confrontation is so beautifully executed and tense that it feels like such a powerful moment to end the film on without trying to conclude the story. It fills the role of a second film in a trilogy perfectly as it continues on from and develops the characters…
This feels so ambitious for its time in terms of story telling and world building. It definitely looks dated in places due to the incorporation of CGI in places which makes certain scenes look quite fake; most notably the garbage crusher scene. However all these elements don't bother me when viewing due to the campy nature of it; I can easily understand why some people find the original Star Wars trilogy cheesy and hard to take seriously but for me it just works and I think A New Hope is just a timeless classic I don't think I will ever forget.
There's something about Jonathan Glazer's work that is so intriguing to watch. I think it how he uses score, performance, camera angles and costuming to make characters very 'alien-like' whilst they look like humans. I have seen both of his recent short films The Fall and now Strasbourg 1518 and both have made me very interested in his next full length feature; especially The Fall which was a very strong short and it felt more like a small excerpt from…
Lawrence of Arabia is a movie of such grand scale. The choice to shoot in an actual desert is what makes the film as amazing as it is as the story, while interesting and multi-layered throughout, isn't enough to carry the film for its 227-minute runtime.
The acting throughout is magnificent and the direction of the extras is phenomenal. I can not even begin to understand how, during all of these humungous shots that contain, at points, hundreds of actors…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The first 10 - 15 minutes of this film are really disappointing and made me question leaving early and understood why many others had. I decided to stick with it and was eventually greeted with the film that I was expecting it to be.
The opening of the film is full of grating un-explained laughing from Joaquin and editing based comedy. The reveal/ explanation of his laughing condition was so poorly done it made me angry when watching it. We…
I'll be honest, I dont really like this film. I'm pretty indifferent on it (5/10).
One thing I nor anyone else can take away from this film in my/our criticism of it is how important this film is and how good Chadwick is. I personally dont get much out of this film, however I am still very happy about its existence. I can only imagine the excitement from people as they saw him appear on screen and for the…
