 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 Last Hurrah :: movie review 2009

The Last Hurrah is in my opinion the final evolution of the college party movie, a group of philosophy majors have one last graduation party filled with sarcastic comedic introspection. This film has Carl Jung as a punch line, come on how you can argue with Carl Jung quotes, not Fredrick Nietzsche or Freud its Jung and its very funny. This is a high brow, lofty script with quotes and banter from many famous philosophers and their great truths and untruths that keep pouring out from this small film like the tap on a keg of beer at the usual collage festivities. This is their Last Hurrah and this entire ensemble cast has some great lines that would to be expected as the characters try to outdo each other as only a group of philosophy majors can. This film is shot like a play with the camera floating around from different conversations with some great well placed music. My favorite line in the film is from Nicole (Valerie Azlynn) she says “Civilization would break down if woman threw themselves at men, if we want you guys to keep building bridges, and highways, and …septic tanks we need to keep are legs closed some of the time…”

The Last Harrah :: movie review 2009 new

Zack Bennett (Will) ,David Wachs (Jason), Valerie Azlynn (Nicole), give excellent performances and  Jonathan Stokes story is really well written. It’s nice to take a break from writing about 100 million dollar productions and write about a true independent film that uses well written dialog to propel the plot line.

 I always as a movie critic I ask two questions, should this film have been made and do I care about that characters and what happens to them as the plot progresses. The answer is yes to both of these questions and I got more laughs out of this little film than I did out of other comedies that spent more on Kraft services than this independent film cost to make.
