I’ve seen a few films in my time, so I don’t usually respond to weird movies with a simple wtf.
But this movie, wow… What the fuck was that all about?
You’d think that would earn it an immediate six out of six… But… No. Wasn’t that good! In fact; wasn’t that good at all!
The 39 Steps
Usually this concept doesn’t seem like a very good idea. And today is no exception.
The Thirty Nine Steps
Literally a very dark film.
The 39 Steps
Very true to the original, this. And as usual, one is left wondering: But why?
FLags of our Fathers
Eastwood does an OK job of steering clear of the usual tripe you’ll find in most “serious” Hollywood-movies in his telling of the battle of Iwo-Jima for most of the film. However, he sadly choses to deal mostly with the ethics of the US war bond drive following our protagonists’ return home, offering very little new insight or emotional interest. That is until the ending, which is your typical voice-overed nationalist sentimental vomit we all expected in the first place. All in all an unforgiving use of a whopping 140 minutes. The flip side better be good to make up.
Keeping Up with the Joneses
Waltzes from Vienna
A light-hearted musical comedy about Johan Strauss etc. Quite boring.
Rich and Strange
Bunch of emo bullshit. Glory to Arstotzka!
Deep Blue Sea
It’s like someone tried to make a new Jaws. With CGI. And Samuel L. At least he got eaten.
