Don't whine, opinions are like...
The Lost Symbol (2021)
I personally love topics about conspiracies or shadow governments and the likes, but...
I personally love topics about conspiracies or shadow governments and the likes, especially when it's about the occult and mysticism, but...
WHEN DO CREATORS FINALLY START PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAIL?? Your audience isn't as stupid as you seem to think.
I could go on forever, but here's a few...
- CIA agents do not carry badges! I mean, they're the CIA... they're secret agents... do I need to explain this any further?
- Why can't Langdon just be an older guy? That would make it a hundred times more believable. Stop revolving stories about young cute people getting together. No one cares.
- No matter how much this guy (Langdon) knows, no one in their right mind is gonna allow him to just suddenly pick up an object on the crime scene, before having it dusted for prints. Similar things happen in other situations.
- Pacing things up is great, but don't do that by making everyone (even random bystanders) immediately solving everything as if they've been doing it since birth, like in the Panic Room movies.
Other than that, it looks promising and the main villain seems awesome. Please address the details, while there's still a chance.
Cold Pursuit (2019)
Why, America? Why?
Judging from most of the reviews I skimmed through, and its consequential rating, I get the distinct feeling not many people seem to realize this is a remake. Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against remakes in general! As long as it's done to improve things... e.g. modern filming techniques, bigger budget, or putting an old story in a contemporary style. In this case however, we're talking about a Norwegian film ("Kraftidioten", a.k.a. "In Oder Of Disappearance"), that came out in 2014... a mere 5 years before. Not only is there practically nothing to improve on this matter, but moreover, "Cold Pursuit" is virtually a ONE ON ONE REMAKE! Which just leaves me to wonder... WHAT IS THE POINT?? Are Americans truly this xenophobic, or just plain ignorant of the existence of other countries and cultures (outside of Paris)? Is it truly that hard to watch a movie with subtitles? I for one just can't get my head around it.
Sam Was Here (2016)
I absolutely adore the creepy atmosphere of movies such as this...
I don't mean to sound pretentious, but I think some people really ought to watch more movies before judging a gem like this. I mean, it's being criticized for being a mystery in stead of a horror, and for having an open ending. Really??
In my opinion, this is exactly how a good horror/mystery/... movie should look like. Not like the overly gore comedies (although those can be great too), and especially not like all the infantile jump-scare flicks, which this genre is utterly saturated with nowadays. Or is that really what most people would rather see? I simply don't understand... if you've seen one, you've seen 'em all.
Personally, I absolutely adore the creepy atmosphere of movies such as this. To me, it's a visual delight. I also really liked the 80's soundtrack and, as another user pointed out, the main character did indeed look like he loved what he was doing.
This movie deserves much more praise than it's getting...
How does this have such an average to low rating, as opposed to most other overly-polished "comedies"? Do people not get the dark humor of Operator, is that it?
One of the things I personally value most in any release (whether it's movies, music or whatever), is originality. Originality is definitely something Operator has, and at the same time pretty contemporary. It also has very pronounced and vivid characters, without being too try-hard. The main character manages to display autism almost perfectly. All that, on (from the looks of it) a pretty low budget.
This movie deserves much more praise than it's getting.
Mr. Robot - The Movie... except not.
For any real hackers (aspiring hackers, hacktivists, otherwise criminally engaged computer wizards, or simply people in general who know their stuff) it's probably best not to touch this movie... but to people who hardly know anything about the world of hacking, who can enjoy a lower tier "morally justified" heist movie, it might work pretty well.
That said, the plot is dull. Really dull. Perhaps not so much the plot itself, but rather the execution of it. It's pretty obvious (from the narration, the cast) that this movie was meant to piggyback on the hype-train of Mr. Robot. Whereas Mr. Robot actually goes into detail pretty accurately, there's hardly ANY hacking going on in this movie at all. It's just a bunch of scammer kids, with a very infantile approach to the hacking phenomenon. A mash-up of jargon, combined with really poor dialogues and acting skills in general. A "hacker" that isn't familiar with the Dark Web or Onion? I mean, really?
Apart from that, it has a nice pace with just enough going on, to maintain a certain entertainment value that made me watch it through to the end. I'm glad that I did, 'cause it has a nice twist at the end... albeit pretty far fetched.
