An incredibly done film, cinematography was unbelievable. Story had me on the edge throughout. The film explores a very powerful grey area at the end, so polarizing that many of the people I was watching it with loved the movie until the end and then just flat out hated it.
A couple of party going teeny boppers were driving down a hill after a night of crazy partying and ran over this one dude name Ben Willis who happens to be sleeping on the road in the middle of nowhere, so they were like "Screw this! We're gonna dump this old fart down the river and feel completely horrible about it 2 years later, but right now it's ok." And of course, he's not dead (big shocker there) and a couple of years later, he sends a note saying "I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER" so the kids were like "Hm did someone see us having sex on the beach or is this letter from our parents who finally figure out we were way past our curfew that night, oh yea, it's that old dude we ran over, I almost forgot tee hee, but I thought he was dead, even though he was alive to grab my crown, that doesn't make sense!" And this old fart, get this, limps super slow after them with a 4 inch hook. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SCARY. It's like Friday the 13th part 16 "Jason gets a brand new hook" or something. I have absolutely no idea why this movie was all the craze back then. I hated it and I still hate it today after watching it a second time, and then they came out with the super lame "I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER." Very original. How about a third movie "I WISH YOU ALL WERE DEAD LAST SUMMER."
Sound of Noise: 7/10- I really feel like this movie is one I personally should have liked way more. But in the end it just didn't have anything to put it over the top.
Great concept. Interesting presentation. A little more humor would have been appreciated but it had it's moments. A few things went unexplained, but I think it's meant to be absurd like that.
But lets cut all the bullshit. This movie has gained note because of it's musical set pieces. And damn! they are really worth the wait. I was worried that the music was going to be all about industrial rock sound but it ended up being more Stomp than anything which is never ever a bad thing. The sets were so clever that I wonder if the movie was built around them rather than the other way around.
The plot itself is decent, and it leads up to a very very satisfying ending.
I recommend for people who enjoy both classical and rhythmic music. The soundtrack and rhythmic set pieces are wonderful.
Skyfall is the most overrated movie of 2012. Best blockbuster my ass. And regarding its cinematography there are other films that could compete against it. The Master(shame it wasn't nominated), for example.
