  • The Theory of Everything 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Nov, 2014

    Watched The Theory of Everything.

    Well, my biggest issue with the film is that for a movie about quite possibly the most brilliant mind on his time...... it's a pretty by the numbers biopic.

    Which is exactly what I was hoping the movie was not.

    I was frankly hoping the movie would get be like The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, where we explore the person's mind and so on. But no, it's pretty simple, both visually and story-wise.

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

    When Birdman was over and I walked outside I had one thought.

    “That was perfect.”

    I don’t think that too often coming out of a movie.

    Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) by Alejandro González Iñárritu is about one-time megastar actor Riggan Thomson, who left the superhero franchise known as Birdman over 20 years ago and he’s nearly faded into obscurity, since.
