 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 . More info about our NO Spoiler Movie Review!

How to Lose Friends & Alienate People :: movie review 

Sidney (Simon Pegg) is a failing journalist that does a celebrity magazine in England that has fell on hard times he can’t even get into the A-list parties. He runs a front page cover of Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges), and ends up getting offered a job at his magazine in New York. Alison Olsen (Kirsten Dunst) plays his co-worker that is having an affair with his direct boss Lawrence Maddox (Danny Huston), and after a series of wild events he falls for  a rising actress  Sophie Maes (Megan Fox)and the plot unfolds. This is a really well written and funny movie, with a top notch cast and, I was really surprised by the intelligent humor. This was recommended by a friend who wouldn’t stop talking about this film so he is my little review. Ok, that said I sat back and with a cynical smile on my face was won over by this film. It has some interesting dialog and a sense of irony, as well as a pointed theme and a mocking of itself the whole celebrity machine, that is what I like in a good film. As we move deeper into the world of Sydney we find that he is  not that bad of a guy and is quite brilliant as a matter of fact, never short of witty one liners that seems to cut like a knife, a passive aggressive warrior in a world of fake plastic media vultures...

 How to Lose Friends & Alienate People :: movie review

 

There is some well defined images and well blocked shots and camera work that gets lose in the mixed but I saw it, well done.  I’m going out on a limb and giving this film a really high rating, with a disclaimer that some of my readers might not get it…
