In a continuation of my occasional series 'I Watch This Shit So You Don't Have To', I present to you The Night Before. It's utter bollocks.
I went into Zootopia expecting to be entertained, at the very least. After all, that's what Disney is expert at, right? But I came out of the cinema with a new-found enthusiasm for what the genre can deliver, which is more than I ever expected.
Firstly, the CGI is astonishing. It's not as photorealistic as the environments (not the characters) in The Good Dinosaur, but the textures and lighting effects in Zootopia have been rendered perfectly. Each scene is absolutely…
I started writing a long review of this but can't really do it any justice. So, here are some thoughts:
It's so very tense, from start to finish, never really letting up.
It's not gratuitously violent but at the same time it doesn't hold back.
Nolan structures the movie with an ingenious temporal trick that works beautifully.
The aerial dogfights are astonishingly tense and beautifully shot.
The performances are uniformly excellent. Even from that geezer from Wand Erection.
