 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 .

V for Vendetta 2005 fantasy-thriller film

The story is very complex but I try to explain a little, its 2038 in England  and the story starts as Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman) and  V (Hugo Weaving) getting ready for a night out as the watch the state-run British Television Network (BTN) as it spits untruth. The country was divided over the loss of freedom until a bioterrorist attack occurred; killing about 80,000 people and the new regime has taken full control now. Evey is then out after curfew and stopped by finger men the local futuristic corrupt police and rescued by V masked vigilante, who takes her to a rooftop to watch him blow up Old Bailey and uses fireworks for extra effect as Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture plays throughout the entire cities public announcement system. She then helps v escape the next day as by chance works at the BTN and he takes over the television station to broadcast his message of rebellion to the masses. Evey is an orphan and her parents were killed by the government so she has her doubts and she then spends time in his underground hideout full of priceless art he has saved from destruction.

This is a great film based on a comic book by DC Comics and made by the Wachowski brothers who did the Matrix trilogy. This movie is one of my all time favorites; it’s got a dark plot and some great acting. The whole premise of a future ran by a dictator who has complete control of the media and the streets, is not that much of a stretch of the imagination.  The fact that Natalie Portman took the role and does such a good job in this movie is what makes it so great ,both Hugo Weaving and john Hurt are both also very good in their roles its just a class act. The sets and the feel is also very well done as well as the direction of James McTeigue and the Cinematography of Adrian Biddle again first rate. This is a classic and looked really good on Blu-ray, with shaper colors and film like details that make it worth watching again. Not everyone got this movie and the story was a little much for mass media, but it will have its place as time goes on and hopefully we don’t end up this happening for real.
