Sometimes you feel like a film is written exactly about you and this was it. Quintessential cinema - the moon set piece and the apes, absolute magic. The emotional power of Roy's arc - and Brad's acting - and the dedication to each character every actor had. The technical skill - the sound, the tone, THE CINEMATOGRAPHY - timeless, flawless CGI & visuals. Marvellous, awe-inducing - a near perfect masterpiece.
I really can't perceive completely why this movie is disliked so much by so many people. It, on the other hand, left a deep impression on me, when I watched it last year. Maybe it's me and my rare personality type and neurodiverse nature that impacts so little of the population (this is half-joke), but I loved how it made me think deeply as I watched it and how even though I'm female and not a mother, I still managed
Compelling at first, AA is beautifully filmed, superbly edited, and quietly told. The few bits of action are matter of fact rather than bombastic. Pitt and Jones work together is lovely, but their meeting is gratuitous and anti-climactic. Bogged down by the monotony of voiceovers, we're left with one man's journey to save the world by confronting his daddy issues and the anachronism of getting the girl. 3.5 stars
Another movie that I don't understand why people not liking it. This is not a sci-fi movie, this is a drama about life and figuring out what you want from life. I think many people missed the main point. What I can say is that this is a beautiful story of a person looking for life in all the places and not seeing the life right in front of him. And how this affects his family mostly his son.
In this film, they trying to be highlight is psychological from Roy himself. Overlapping social burdens for people who like to do anything by themselves. Empty space makes them comfortable. In the end, Roy realized if he need someone to raly on. The sad part for me when his father said that he didn't care about his business on earth anymore.
CINEMA :: Beautifully shot and engaging sound mastering. Though flawed (in my opinion), I loved many aspects. There are so few movies that place the nobility of exploration and pursuit of knowledge, against the sickness of overconsumption and commercial development. This central theme is essential for society to watch and discuss, in hopes we can enter this aspect of our future with some grace.
"But beneath their sublime surfaces there was nothing , no love or hate, no light or dark. He could only see what was not there ,and missed what was right in front of him. " Gray crafts a near perfect distillation of our boundless quest for answers and the human ties that make them possible.
