 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 .

Australia movie review new dvd : Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman 2008

 

www.Brickthrewglass.com’s Movie review of Australia 2008 starring, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. Australia is the story of an English noblewoman who travels to Australia on the brick of World War 2, to find her husband who is trying to save a failing cattle ranch he bought and 1500 head of cattle to the military. She is driven to the ranch across the outback by “the drover” played by Hugh Jackman and slowly falls in love with him and the great wide open spaces of Western Australia. This is Movie has been belated by the critics and had a brief opening here in Hollywood and disappeared; I had to wait to see this movie on DVD.
2.5 stars from www.brickthrewglass.com movie reviews and film critic   order from amazon

 

Australia movie review : Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman 2008

Well this story optimistically relies on special effects to tell this story  and was 1930’s cartoon style animation in the opening scenes and them asks us to believe the animation in the later part of this film, you can’t have (in my Opinion) it both ways, cartoon and realistic animation together. Also this could have been a better film if the story was told form the point of view of the Lady Sarah Ashley and not from the view of a young aboriginal boy. His narration wouls have been so good in the voice of Nicole Kidman, this story is about hert character she should have told it, Or maybe an Omni-present narrator. Anyway I think this movie tried to be everything to everybody and that was its shortfall. I did watch the DVD twice I wanted to make an intelligent review and it had some really good parts and I will say that it just was a little off the mark. I have an Australiain friend who was talking about the slang and how Australians don’t say ‘Crickey” and how the movie  Australia didn’t have the right dialect , well they did talk that way in the early 1940’s when Australia has very much still part of the British empire . 2.5
