 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.

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 .

UP  movie review Pixar

"Whats UP doc? " Up 2009 Disney movie review

So, it’s gone full circle a generation that was raised on cartoons as Children has  lived to see a cartoon made that deals with end of life issues and the meaning of life. With traces of The BUCKET LIST and REVOLUTIONARY ROAD as the plot the themes, the new film UP from Pixar Animation Studios has incorporated deep levels of human condition whether or not some of the young viewers ever understand it. I guess with a buzz about an Oscar already for a BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY for writer Bob Peterson for this film, we enter into a new era of animation, a place where the writers of the original cartoons like Warner Bros. Cartoons  Bugs Bunny could never ever imagined going. With a main character like Carl a man that reminds me of Mr. Wilson from Dennis the Menace, this film also is a mirror how this world we live in has changed in the last few decades. This story starts out with Carl as a child dreaming of being an explorer and going to Paradise Falls in South America with his childhood sweetheart Ellie. He then after her passing he decides to go and with the help of Russell a young neighbor who stows away under his house, lifting off into the air in Carl house attached to hot air balloons. They then land in South American at Paradise Falls that Carl been planned on visiting years past with Ellie and meet an explorer who is trying to capture a rare bird.

UP  movie 2009  review Pixar web site This story starts out with Carl as a child dreaming of being an explorer with his sweetheart Ellie and them after her passing years later, he decides to fulfill this with the help of Russell a young neighbor boy who is he befriends .

I had a few Days, well kind of like 5 days to digest this film as it affected me and I wanted to write something profound and meaningful. The animation in this film is superb and like everything Pixar, really well thought out and executed.  Not trying to reinvent the wheel and using the formula they perfected, Pixar is again at the forefront of the animation medium this film UP. The scope and detail is this project is amazing as every detail is covered and the use of a story that has a message is like last year’s Wall-e, something that is not new, but has some redeeming social value. This will be my Small Web based movie review for this web site not the full article I plan on writing for magazine publication, examining this premise of the fact that the cartoons morphed into modern animation and how people lower their guard people when watching animation and can somehow absorb a deeper socially relevant messages easier. See this film, it  is a great movie and has more to it than you would expect and  it works on many different levels. To quote Bugs Bunny "And dat's de end!"
