I've noticed recently that Leon has disagreed with the crew a lot and I keep thinking is he jaded?, but no, to his credit he has to watch films all the time and just wants something to reinvigorate his mind and as he said in the Resident Evil review to cut new grooves into his brain. It must be hard to sit and watch some of the balls Hollywood churns out. But I think its great to get different angles on a film and I feel the Spill crew do that brilliantly. Also I feel that indie films and European films like French, Spanish, Polish, Asian and of course UK films give more character development and make you think a hell of a lot more and are not as reliant on formula and special effectsx
@Leon You're welcome sir.
I'm surprised Leon did not like it. It seems to fit perfectly in his age demographic, that is the demographic of people who lived trough the Civil War. Just kidding. But in all seriousness what is with Steven Spielberg movies these days that make me want to fall asleep during them. Admitedly I haven't seen this yet but I remember when I watched War Horse I popped the Blu Ray in, started watching and then 10 minutes later opened my eyes and the end credits were rolling. I was shocked to see that two and a half hours had passed. And I am getting some War Horse vibes from this trailer. Although the acting does seem much better in this.
HOOOOOW DAAAARRREE YOOOUU!
As good as you guys normally are you really need a historian guest when you review historical films like this. Hey, I'm a historian!
this looks very good
I heard Daniel-Day Lewis is flawless but I dont know if I can sit in the theater with a film looking this foggy and sorrow
I will wait for it on home release but Im glad the consensus is: 90% 'Daniel Day-Lewis characteristically delivers in this witty, dignified portrait that immerses the audience in its world and entertains even as it informs'
I loved this movie for the actors and I can understand the complaint about the movie being too political than what the trailers presented us with. I think if you know the history and seen the other movies that do take on the war side of the civil you are going to have a good time. I am kinda sad with was not another Lockout review.
Great comment. I completely agree with. To me, there was nothing "misleading" about the trailers, I knew what this film was going to be. Wasn't AMAZING, but definately a low Full Price.
I want a text book written by the spill crew.
I did come in expecting the film that it was. When I was seeing the people showing up in the trailer, I understood where Spielberg was taking the film, I didn't come in there expecting Gettysburg/Gods & Generals or Roots/Glory that apparently the guys were wanting with this.
Can't agree with Leon or Cohost, I think they walked in with expectations of this being another Glory or something of the like; this sort of reminded of their reaction to The Conspirator last year. It just annoys me.Now granted, I do somewhat agree with Leon about perhaps they could've shown some horrors of slavery to put some emotional gravitas to the consequences of what happens to the 13th Amendment. Perhaps a small scene with a slave auction or a beaten slave, but again, like Korey & Brian, I knew what the context was going to be and if they added in the things Leon & Cohost wanted, I'm sure it would've criticized for being just tacked in without thought.
Loved the movie, Full price for me.
