 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 Red Baron : movie review PDF Print E-mail
Written by Film critic : Matt Willey : Movie Reviews Dvd and Blu-ray Reviews   

 

This movie starts out with a very interesting scene where the red baron and his friends fly there planes over the enemy lines to drop flowers on an enemy pilots funeral, this is how they saw themselves as noble knights of the round table, jousting in mid air. There are some amazing air plane scenes in this film that are very well done , with planes flying everywhere and really exciting, they are done in a way that ,was well thought out and the use of overview shots to set up the action , so you are not wondering which way is up. The acting is good, but would have been better, I hate to say this in German with English sub titles. There are some amazingly beautiful and then dark images in this film, first of the countryside and cities, and then of the war and the carnage. The love story is just ok, it didn’t really have enough dialog between Kate the nurse (Lena Heady) to intrigue me and the story about his family also has just ok. The story of the Red Baron was about the friends he had in his squadron as they get killed one by one he becomes more and more jaded to the exact nature of this war. The spent allot of money making this film, with many extras and computer graphics, and it shows the attention to detail is superb and makes it worth watching this film .  I’ll get it a 3 out of 4 but that is generous.  What can i say ,

This movie was good ,not great just good, I revert back to my childhood, when I loved to watch war movies and started to really enjoy this film. The dialog is a little off, a bad translation from the German, and a little awkward at watch. On the flip side of that, there are some really cool dog fight sequences and very realistic sets and costumes. This is the story of Baron Manfred von Richthofen (Matthias Schweighöfer) the First World War German flying ace.This is the story of Baron Manfred von Richthofen (MatthiasSchweighöfer) the First World War German flying ace.

He was the most the most decorated and fear and for good reason, he shot the most pilots out of the sky and was used by the Germans as a propaganda icon to inspire the troops in the trenches to valor.
