Ad Astra (2019)
In the end, the son suffers the sins of the father.
Mesmerising, sombre, contemplative and visually arresting. This is a film to sit back and watch with a great sound system. The story is simple, nothing complex except the inner journey and emotional rollercoaster our protagonist Roy McBridge (Brad Pitt) is going through as he sets off to find is father (Tommy Lee Jones), who disappeared in a deep space mission decades ago. Quite literally, a son following the footsteps of the father.
If you are deciding whether to watch this film, I can tell you this is nothing like The Martian or Gravity but more like Tarkovsky's Solaris, Moon or Sunshine. It's an introspective journey featuring the best performance from Brad Pitt yet (the little facial twitches and reactions).
Do I recommend Ad Astra? Absolutely.
The Old Guard (2020)
Bogged down by the screenplay like a metal case on the seabed.
Charlize Theron kicks ass in a role where she wields a centuries-old axe and displays the weight of weariness.
The direction is fine; but the sudden use of pop songs within scenes are completely out of place and distracting. The action scenes are sparse given how it tries to be an action drama. The actions themselves are nothing remarkable, offering little intensity like the Bourne movies or enjoyability like the John Wick, MI: Fallout and Atomic Blonde movies.
The storyline is predictable with no nuances. It explores the idea of life and death at the surface level. The dialogue is mostly in-your-face and unnatural, so are the character motivations. Chiwetel's character is poorly written. Harry Melling's character and performance is a complete caricature and poor excuse of a villain. The scene where Charlize Theron's character interacts with a pharmacy cashier is unnecessarily forced.
Charlize Theron is the highlight for sure and I wish they focused more on her character. Chiwetel Ejiofor is under-utilised. Kiki Layne is fine. Not a fan of Matthias Schoenaerts' acting at all.
MY VERDICT: A couple of cool moments. Watch The Old Guard if the premise intrigues you. If you are a fan of Charlize Theron. If you don't mind a movie with action scenes stitched together by bland dialogue (apart from one love monologue scene).
War Machine (2017)
Why? Why did we have the war?
First off, the criticism is too harsh. From a directorial aspect, this is not a perfect movie. Yet the movie clearly goes over the head of some people. There are numerous laughs big and small scattered through the movie where you laugh at the absurdity of the characters and the unfolding of events. At times it also gets informative and at times drama-serious. When the movie ends you feel like to have gone through a journey with General Glenn McMahon, an inside look into the relationship and mechanism of America's war in Afghanistan.
War Machine delivers its message and will prompt you into thinking. The pacing is slower at times but then catches the speed. Great chemistry between the cast with solid performances. Brad Pitt is excellent, giving a unique and strong performance that radiates as the film goes on.
An absurd story at an absurd time, this is a unique movie worth watching for its theme and characters.
