 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 .

Written by Film critic : Matt Willey : Movie Reviews Dvd and Blu-ray Reviews   


 2008 Golden Globe awards are over and its time to take a look at the winners and losers .The Academy Awards nominations announced today have some of the same cast and crew with a few plot twists. Remember folks this was the foreign press, an all American movie like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was at a disadvantage


There are a few new names up for the granddaddy of all awards, I'm going to be putting my 2 cents in on the subject and maybe even trying to offer my predictions .Let's just say the The Curious Case of Benjamin Button should get the Oscar for best picture, as Slumdog Millionaire was a great film, it with be out shadowed by this giant of a film. Brad Pitt is my pick for best actor the star of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button role was one that he has been training for a long time and there is a reason he is on the top of the pile of top actors. Frank Langella in "Frost/Nixon" was very well done after a long theatrical run on Broadway, but I was more impressed by his costar Michele Sheen. Best actress is a tossup Angelina Jolie in "The Changeling" or Kate Winslet in "The Reader" both were very powerful deep performances, but it could go either way I would be a give it to Angelina Jolie but not by much. Best Director Honors should go in my opinion to Danny Boyle for "Slumdog Millionaire" he also directed one of my favorite sci-fi movies "Sunshine". Heath Ledger for "the Dark Knight" and Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler are my pick supporting actor / actress. WALL E and Slumdog Millionaire are my picks for the best screenplays of 2008
