 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 . More info about our NO Spoiler Movie Review!

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past:: Movie Review

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a romantic comedy that starts with a womanizing photographer Connor Mead (Matthew McConaughey) that sleeps with woman and then quickly breaks up with them and he is asked to be the best man at his brother’s wedding. He is then visited by ghosts of his mentor, his Uncle (Michael Douglas) and ex girlfriends who show him his life so far, not unlike the classic story a Christmas Carol by Tomas Dickens .Connor is also faced with his first love, Jenny (Garner) and the fact that he might be still in love with her. This is just what a date night movie should be a not to serious story of relationships and there ups and downs.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past movie review

If it was any other actor than Matthew McConaughey it might have been a stretch that he had so many women in his life and they all fell for his spell. I can’t see this project really working with say any of the many A-list actors as most woman I talked to really like Matthew McConaughey and would be more than willing to sleep with him. OK I did a quick poll, well I asked 5 girls if they would sleep with Matthew McConaughey and they all said yes, and so there is my big a scientific experiment.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past:: Movie Review

One girls asked me if I knew him and did I have his phone number, I guess I should have given out a bit more info about what I was trying to do...

  So this is a nice easy to digest romance movie and it’s got a classic story, with a modern twist. The cast does a good job and the dialog is predicable but still funny in parts and as we get drawn into this film we do start to see a different side to this man and his life. I didn’t really like the character Connor very much, I would like to add maybe jealous of his life and his problem with Beautiful women throwing themselves at him, but after having watched the film for a while that changed. He is humanized and brought down to earth and becomes a different man with the help of these visits from people in his past and the first woman in his life with her cut to the bone banter. If you are in the mood for a lighthearted romantic comedy this is a safe bet.
