 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 Dark Knigh movie review 2008
The Dark Knight 2008 movie review

There have been 10 batman movies since 1943 and the 2008 release Batman The Dark Knight is the best one yet! With the cast from 2005’s Batman Begins, including Christian Bale as Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as James Gordon and bringing back the director Christopher Nolan it takes it to a new level. We also get to see Heath Ledger as The Joker (which won Best supporting Oscar), Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two-Face these were very, very well done. The story opens with the Joker robbing a bank that is owned by the mob that is taking over Gotham city and uses a school bus to get away, this leads to him taking over the whole criminal enterprise and confronting his nemesis …BATMAN.

 The Dark Knigh movie review 2008 new joker
There is no end in this film to the great scenes and special effects with some of the best editing I’ve seen. The story is also well written and the homage paid to the past movies and original batman movies , but this is a darker movie as  Heath Ledger plays a Joker that is set on true mayhem and a twisted plot of believable complexity. There are some beautiful shots of from around the world and sets that must have cost an arm and a leg to build, the whole production has a money is no object feel to it. One scene is the joker sliding down 100’s of millions of dollars in a huge pile and then burning it, the whole thing is so well acted its amazing.

 

I have always been amazed at direction and editing that knows it’s got great scenes, but edits them to fit the pace of the movie, not hanging with a shot because ” it looks really good”. You don’t really see a movie so well played out and executed, with a seamless flow that draws you in and a sound track to back it up, without you even knowing it. This is above all else an action movie, whether its fight scenes or car chases this film has it all on a large scale that is worthy of the batman legacy and truly world class. I watched this on Blu-Ray the other day and was really impressed with the quality of the experience; the quality of the picture was something else really much better than regular DVD.
