The Zero Theorem



Zero-theorem-intl-poster

Directed by: Terry Gilliam
Written by:
Cast: Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, Melanie Thierry, Peter Stormare, Matt Damon, Sanjeev Bhaskar
Studio: Voltage Pictures
Genre:
Official Site:
Plot: A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Review:

PROS:

+ fantastic direction (really well shot with fantastically odd art direction, set design, costumes - the whole nine)
+ cool concept
+ good cast (Christoph Waltz is great in a very shy, awkward and unique role for him. Matt Damon is nearly unrecognizable in a small but very important role. Lucas Hedges who plays the young boy Bob is a real standout)
+ good script
+ good music (the score fits nice, is effectively ominous at times and the main repeated cover song is used really well)

OVERALL:

One of the very best films of the year, and I can guarantee I'll be saying that at the end of the year as well. It's also quite possibly the weirdest movie of the year, but in a great way. Gilliam has stated this is the last movie in his sort-of trilogy consisting of Brazil and 12 Monkeys and it fits quite well, at least with Monkeys (I haven't seen Brazil yet, but am really itching to asap). It's really quite a trip, a movie about everything and nothing and how everything may just mean nothing at the end of the day, take the news how you will. Highly recommend.

^ The lackluster action (and how poorly it was shot sometimes), the underwhelming script, also felt Copley was terribly miscast. I still thought it was solid though. Here's my review I did... http://www.moviefancentral.com/cochise-2/reviews/20427

Mad Max: Fury Road has a really cool visual look from that first trailer. Sure it's all oranges but it just looks like something that would totally pop on the big screen. Sure hope it gets a DMR conversion and gets released in IMAX. Also super, super cool of the studio and whoever to actually give the guy who directed all the previous Mad Max movies way back when (the last of which was 30 years ago) the chance to direct this new one. Just seems like such an unconventional move all this time later, for what is essentially a reboot of sorts. Very 'un-Hollywood' of them lol. The only thing I'm worried about here is Tom Hardy. Love the guy but it'll be one hell of a task to step into Mel Gibson's shoes. Hope he pulls it off.

I get that it's 10 years after Peter Jackson's film (which I absolutely loved) but it still feels WAY too early to have a new King Kong movie... I mean of course I'll watch it but uggh why, no thanks... I don't know, I just don't see what they can really do with it. Hopefully they change up the story completely, that's a must, but as for the ape... what can they really do with him? Andy Serkis and WETA's work on the 2005 flick still looks absolutely stunning and cutting edge. Wait a minute... this new King Kong movie (titled 'Skull Island') is made by Legendary Pictures... HOLY SHIT! Alright screw everything I just said, if they set this Skull Island movie in the present day... we could have a full on big budget hollywood version of King Kong vs. Godzilla (my favourite Godzilla movie of them all) for Godzilla 3! Wow, yes!

lol I didn't mind the length at all. Loved it actually, thought it worked for such an epic story/movie. Only part I didn't like about the whole movie is the Dinosaur stampede. I actually love watching the Extended Edition of the film.

JohnLocke2342
JohnLocke2342 at 10:09 AM Jul 27

I don't necessarily think it's a new King Kong movie though and he might even be relegated to a cameo or supporting appearance. I think it'll focus solely on Skull Island and maybe some sort of expedition that heads there? This is the official word from Legendary:

“Previous works have touched on the island, but staying and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions.”

Under the skin



Under_the_skin_us_poster

Directed by: Jonathan Glazer
Written by: Walter Campbell
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Paul Brannigan
Studio: Film4
Genre: Horror, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A mysterious woman seduces lonely men in the evening hours in Scotland. Events lead her to begin a process of self-discovery.

Review:

PROS:

+ good score
+ interesting concept (though nothing we haven't really seen before)
+ some beautiful shots

CONS:

- incredibly slow (little content and payoff for the runtime)

OVERALL:

It just drags. It's uneventful, unexciting and repetitious. This actually could have been a really good 20 minute short film. Unfortunately, they decided to make it a 2 hour film and the results are truly grating. Every now and then it cuts to a beautiful looking visual, usually of the environment, but while it mesmerises for a bit it doesn't make you forget how monotonous the overall experience has been. I'm fine with 'artsy' movies, but this one just completely missed the mark, staying way too long for absolutely no reason on most shots and scenes. And the fact that there is very little payoff or explanation to the interesting parts of the film is quite disappointing. It wouldn't have been such an issue if only the runtime was shorter or there was more content in the film as a whole. It is not a terrible movie though, as stated there are some nice shots placed here and there, and the 'underwater' reveal early on was very cool (though I certainly would've liked to have seen more on that, what are they doing, what is the purpose of this whole expedition) as was the final forrest sequence. Perhaps the film would've been more enjoyable if I did not know the twist going in.

I wouldn't even necessarily call it a twist. It's the plot synopsis. But the movie is very deliberate, definitely not for everyone, but there is a LOT of meaning in every scene.

Cochise
Cochise at 03:35 PM Jul 26

^ that's what I was thinking. The whole 'twist' was pretty common knowledge to us ever since the movie was announced and it never really felt like they were trying to keep it a secret... yet I could see many people in the mainstream not knowing the 'twist' going in (especially if the On Demand/Blu-ray descriptions were along the lines of the above imdb.com one) and with that possibly finding the movie to be more enjoyable.

I definitely do have to disagree about there being a lot of meaning in every scene though. That's not to say that every scene is flat or hollow, there is some good subtext and commentary in there, but I felt many scenes could've been trimmed or wholly eliminated without loss, the subtractions actually adding to the movie. To each their own though man, as always. Thanks for reading!

Wow nice! Had an old friend just hook me up with an advanced screening of the new Terry Gilliam movie The Zero Theorem for tomorrow morning, good thing I didn't go drinking tonight! I've been so excited for this movie... bring on the weirdness! Before that though I'll end my night with an On Demand rental of that other new Scarlett Johanson flick that sounds like Species but apparently is nothing like Species... Under The Skin

Armitage would make a good Dr. Strange IMO.

Transformers: Age of Extinction



Tf4tsr1shtcade

Directed by: Michael Bay
Written by: Ehren Kruger
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, T.J. Miller, Stanley Tucci, Titus Welliver, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot: A mechanic and his family join the Autobots as they are targeted by a bounty hunter from another world.


PROS:

+ great special effects

+ cool new concepts (they go full on sci-fi here like never before, having humans traverse a giant alien ship and having a few glimpses at aliens that actually aren't Transformers, plus they imply that they'll open that door even more in the next one. Having Wahlberg fight with Transformers tech gives me hope that he'll get in a GI Joe Rise of Cobra style suit and go 1-on-1 with a Decepticon in the next one)

+ good cast (Wahlberg really steals the show here as the smart but unsuccessful inventor who is also a somewhat overprotective dad... and is also Mark Wahlberg so he's jacked and can do badass real well too, of course. Tucci is good in his role and he gets to have some fun, Grammar is as good as possible as well, even if he has a pretty one note bad guy. Peltz is solid as the daughter as is her boyfriend played by Jack Reynor, though neither really gets much interesting to do, and Reynor's character comes off a little too dickish)

+ good 3D

+ good direction (another well shot film that continues to give us wide shots to clearly see the action)


CONS:

- overlong (I can't say that much could have been cut out in the editing room, but the script could've been restructured to make it shorter)

- disappointing music (nowhere near the level of the great music in the previous 3, no noticeable returning or new themes and the signature licensed track from Imagine Dragons actually made me yearn for another Linkin Park song instead)

- unfocused (both the narrative and the action scenes, neither feels on the level of the previous films. The plot isn't really near as memorable or as distinct as the plots in the previous films - this movie feels more like a bit of an awkward stepping stone that they needed to get out of the way before getting to the great, truly interesting stuff. They laid the groundwork, introduced the characters, laid the foundation for what's to come... but unfortunately it feels like they had all of those ideas and then just wove some general storyline around that as they went. As stated above though, there are a bunch of really cool new concepts brought to the table here. As for the action, well it is certainly nice to look at but once again I didn't feel there were really any action sequences here that were that memorable, especially compared to those in the previous films. The dinobots didn't really need to be here at all either, but I guess that was one of the big selling points so I at least wish there were in there for longer. One final note I'd like to make is Megatron/Galvatron... I don't know, he kind of seems forced in here and is kind of forgotten about for a large chunk of the movie and gets a pretty deflating and lame sendoff. I think they could've worked him in there better, perhaps having the human-made Transformers malfunctioning and causing havoc by themselves, with Galvatron still in lockup and then in an after-credits scene have Galvatron awaken and reveal himself to be Megatron/Galvatron and to be in full control... would've worked much better as an after credits tease/cliffhanger for the next film)


Review:

OVERALL:

I really enjoyed it. As you can see I did have several problems with the movie and do feel it could have been tighter, but as a fan of this franchise I enjoyed it and was glad I could see it in IMAX 3D. That being said if you didn't like the other films in the series it's unlikely this one will make you a fan. That is, unless a big reason why you didn't enjoy the previous ones was because of LaBeouf and/or Fox. While I think it's an enjoyable film and definitely makes me excited for the future, after thinking long and hard about AoE after my first viewing I can't help but settle on being a bit disappointed with it. Perhaps my expectations were a bit too high though. I actually could see my opinion of this raising to a 7 upon another viewing or two, so I look forward to that. In any case the new ideas presented here, along with Wahlberg, make me very, very excited for the next in the series. Recommended.
