 about brickthrewglass

Brick threw glass is a Movie review website. Brick threw glass is a metaphor I made up for film, the BRICK is the anamorphic shot blocking, and GLASS is the camera lens , the word THREW is a play on words, should have been thru but, I used the words THREW. This website reviews and critics films in a different way,using humor it also tries to interject some of my technical knowledge of how films are created and made into the process.


image: titlte: no spoiler reviews
OK “We don’t do spoilers”; it’s my policy to be very vague about the story lines of the films I review here. I have always hated reading movie reviews that tell to much about a film. Entering a theater already having preconceived notions about the plot and / or the outcome of the film in the past have ruined the viewing experience for me,so this is why  these reviews are written this way .

The Hurt Locker :  movie review 2009
 The Hurt Locker starts out with a crew of the U.S. army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal  (EOD) in a cleared out street in Iraq using a robot to try to see into what looks like a pile of rubble , but is really a Road side bomb. The tension mounts as they prepare to defuse it and we get to see a side of war not ever seem by most military, yet alone the general public. This is a dangerous job defusing bombs while in unfriendly territory and not knowing who the enemy is or if the people who made the actual bomb are watching really to make it explode.

Jeremy Renner who plays Staff Sergeant William James  trained with the actual Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit to add a sense of reality to the role. The dialog in this film is very, I would imagine very, realistic and added greatly to the films story and writer Mark Boal I do expect tt br nominated for some awards at year’s end. I thought this was going to be just another war movie, but it’s something more, it tells the story without being judgmental, and preachy.

It doesn’t take sides it just moves thru the lives of these men in as they deal with life and death situations. Filmed in Jordon not far from Iraq The Hurt Locker has a totally realistic feel, and actors that were actual Iraq refugees, makes are you immense yourself without knowing it. The one thing I’d like to comment about is this camera work, it has the modern shaky look when needed ,it  adds to the intensity of the story , not overused and is not used unnecessarily. The Hurt Locker is selling out theaters here in Los Angeles and is the surprise hit of the summer. This is a great film…
