 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 .

Funny people:  movie review
Funny People is a comedy/drama about a stand-up comedian George Simmons (Adam Sandler) who is successful yet self-involved and has no real friends. He is diagnosed with a form of leukemia in the beginning of the film and takes to make life changes. He befriends Ira Wright (Seth Rogen)  (real last name Weiner punch line of more than a few jokes in the movie) is an aspiring stand-up comedian who works at a deli to make money while he struggles to make it in stand up comedy. So together they go a series of performances and Ira gets to see George’s world of success and becomes his personal assistant. This is not even close to the movie that I thought it was going to be. It is a very powerful movie with a well written and acted story and meaningful characters. With a sub-plot of Ira’s roommates Leo Koenig (Leo Koenig) an aspiring stand up like Ira yet more successful, and Mark Taylor Jackson (Jason Schwartzman)  the star of a sitcom called “Yo Teach! “ And his attempted romance with his neighbor Daisy Danby (Aubrey Plaza ) an aspiring female comic. The story moves right along and the use of early clips of a young Sandler and the use of the comedy performance is brilliant, yes I used that word and if you do a search of this website it’s not something I say about any of the films I’ve reviewed. I really like this film, I felt for the characters and I was sucked into their world, if that not what a movie is support to do I don’t know what is. Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen  both kind of owe me for their last two films Bedtime Stories and Observe and Report, both were lackluster.
This film makes up for those...
 
 
movie review Funny People 2009 comedy about comedians
 
I really think this is a great film and even if you’re not a big fan of the whole comedy thing will still be entertained. Judd Apatow directed this film and has had a series of hits under his belt, he seem s to get the best out of his actors and enables them with funny dialog and situations that other films these days lack. I laughed out loud a more than a few times during this film and marveled at the writing  in general it , with the underlying plot of the older comedian and his new protégé .
