 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 .

Angels & Demons 2009 movie review
This an ambitious film and a story based on the book authored by Dan Brown who wrote the 2006 movie The Da Vinci Code. This is an intense book I read before seeing the movie and a real page turner, with a lot of historical references to the Illuminati a secret society and antimatter a strange new substance that is no stranger to star trek fans. This story is very complex almost too complex for most folks and is full of catholic traditions and rhetoric that at times I had no idea what was going on. There is though art lots of famous art from around Rome where the film is set, and this is a kind of history of lesson and action film rolled into one, just like the semi-historical movie that it is a sequel to. Tom Hanks, Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor all give strong performances and Ron Howard does a great good of making a movie that was a monumental undertaking of biblical proportions, no pun intended . Robert Langdon, Harvard University professor is back and this time trying to save the Vatican and the catholic cardinals from an antimatter explosion and a assassin who is as pure evil.

 This is a highly anticipated movie and after the 2006 The Da Vinci Code that was a runaway box office hit, it has big shoes to fill and even with the changes to the original book still has to complex a story and just kind of scrambled. The book has a plot, sub-plot and a love story all rolled into one, it is just too much to digest, this could have easy been two movies. If you want to have an art history lesson, or a brief history of the Catholic Church then this is a film for you. Read More

I wonder how much of the author’s story was written knowing that a feature film was going to be made , because that is how it reads and could have been allot more by using a little less.

 

3 stars out of 4
