I'm not gonna go into too much detail about this film, because there is nothing to be said about this film that hasn't already been said. With the exception of "THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION", "THE GREEN MILE" is my favorite "prison film" for a number of reasons ... however, there is one particular thing about this film that really gets to me, that I will share with everyone here to hopefully kick-start some healthy debate and thought.
I can go on…
Oh ...... my ...... FUCKING ...... GOD!!!
I'm not against musicals at all ... as a matter of fact, there have been a batch that I liked and thoroughly enjoyed. A friend of mine recommended me to give this one a shot, as she knows I'm not opposed to musicals or watching something new. Plus ... I'm somewhat of a Pierce Brosnan fan, going back to his Bond days.
HOLY COW!!! He was the absolute worst part of this film.…
There comes a time in every film fan's life, that a film comes out that simply grabs you by the balls (or boobs) and simply doesn't let go. It's one of those rare films that presents nearly everything you could possibly want in a film.
Action ... Suspense ... Drama ... Mystery ... Sci-Fi/Fantasy ... Romance ... Tragedy ... Thought-inducing themes ... and an ending that kick starts deep debate and soul-searching.
Each and every single one of those elements…
If you're looking for a film where all the elements that go into film-making and storytelling work to absolute perfection ... look no further than right here in director Jeff Nichols' sophomore effort of "TAKE SHELTER" ... a combination family-drama/apocalyptic horror that hits all the right emotional and dramatic beats for its viewing audience. It's a film about so many things and themes that you can relate to in the real world ... "family responsibility" ... "the mystery of uncertainty"…
