Starship Troopers x Don’t Breathe
Saw an advanced screening and damn it was like kill bill + blade runner w/a splash of max max: fury road & maybe even ex-machina. Great story and pacing that plays more like a video game than 4th wall traditional film. The first person camera worked well; for those of you who recall Afflicted & Doom and perhaps similar films with some FPS scenes you'll enjoy this cinematography. Clever writing drives the plot without it being predictably stale. This thing will f****n own on VR/AR devices when it's released on digital.
This sh** was terrible. I was warned but the smashingly good box office hit, Skyfall, left high expectations for MI-6's Mr. Bond. Alas we're given gonzo dialouge, damn good wardrobe & set design, silly out-of-place actions (falling on a couch after multi-level explosion, 007 fighting David Bautista, helicopter scenes), and typically good Bond score except its theme song - I'm all for Sam Smith gettin money but he can't follow Adele - they should've asked Sade! Ultimately a sinusoidal roller coaster ending with heavy-handed low note #wtf.
