Posted on by Admin in Blind Film Critic | Comments Off on GREEN LANTERN review – Blind Film Critic Slams Lead Actors (no spoilers)

Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison reviews “Green Lantern”. He’s not too happy with the performances of the lead actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively or the excessive use of CGI (nearly half the film). Tommy says, “Green Lanterm’s super power is that he can create anything he imagines. What are the writers doing?” Plus, Tommy’s opinion of Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, “Maybe the big screen isn’t for you.” Watch the video for more wisecracks and find out how Tommy rates the movie!

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds).

“Green Lantern” review – Transcript

Another superhero movie. Who ‘green lanterned’ this?

(trailer/edited)

Oh, my god. I was so glad it was over. (laughs)

You know, there’s some story here, but also some weak performances I thought.

Ryan Reynolds was, I don’t know if I buy him as a superhero. I don’t think there’s much depth to him.

(Ryan Reynolds/Green Lantern: No evil shall escape my sight.)

Blake Lively. I didn’t really believe her. I thought she was sort of flat.

(Carol/Blake Lively: I think you’re late.)

You know, maybe the big screen isn’t for you. (laughs)

Peter Sarsgaard as Dr. Hammond.

(Peter Sarsgaard.Dr. Hammond: Why me?)

I didn’t think the writing was so good for his character, but he could really pull it off and make it believable.

Mark Strong was good in this. Same script. But man, he’s brings a lot of weight to the roll.

(Mark Strong: I don’t need to tell you who we are.)

You know, the audio in this was good. Big wide stereo. A lot of effects. A lot of cool things like that. To be honest, the sound effects, I think, had more depth than Ryan Reynolds. I mean, really.

(Ryan Reynolds: What the hell?!)

(Tommy laughs)

Nearly half of this movie is CGI. But really, what does it add to the story? I want to see this movie made without the visual effects. The story is great here, isn’t? A car alarm? I don’t think that’s going to help. His super power is that he can create anything he imagines. What are the writers doing? (people running and screaming)

So, for “Green Lantern”, I’m giving it one and half out of four eyes open.

So, remember you can always follow me on Twitter and Facebook. I’m Tommy Edison, the Blind Film Critic. This movie is so bad, it’s not even a guilty pleasure. It’s just guilty. (laugh)

(Ryan Reynolds: What the hell?!)

Posted on by Admin in Blind Film Critic | Comments Off on SUPER 8 review [no spoilers] – Blind Film Critic – It’s Not All Visual

Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison reviews “Super 8”. He expected the film to be very visual, but it turned out to have a good story with well-performed characters. Plus, Tommy talks about the soundtrack and tries to scare the crap out of us with examples of ‘movie suspense tricks’ they use with the help of sound. Watch the video to find out how Tommy rates the movie!

SUPER 8 review [no spoilers] – Blind Film Critic – It’s Not All Visual

“Super 8” (2011)

Starring: Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Joel Courtney, Gabriel Basso, Noah Emmerich, Ron Eldard, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills
Director: J.J. Abrams / Screenwriter: J.J. Abrams

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

SUPER 8 – TRANSCRIPT

Wow, Super 8! A movie about a hotel chain. Cool!

(trailer)

Walking out of this one, I was going, “Wow, this is a lot different than I expected. I expected it was going to be way, way more visual than it was.

The character development was fantastic. The kids were all great.

(clip – Joe: I have to help Charles finish his movie.)

Joel Courtney is Joe. He’s the lead kid in this movie. He is wonderful.

(clip – Charles: Production value!)

Riley Griffiths is Charlie. He plays the goofy kid real well. Got a lot of heart to him. Very believable.

Kyle Chandler was Joe’s father, and I gotta tell you —

(clip – Joe’s father: You tell me everything.)

A little disappointing. The rest of the adults in this movie had a lot more depth.

(clip – Alice: How am I supposed to be a zombie?)

Elle Fanning as Alice. She’s terrific. She brings a lot of maturity to this performance.

The way they use suspense in this one is fantastic. I mean they do this thing, right, where everything gets real quite and you’re totally drawn into the sto–

(clip – loud attacking sound)

Yeah, I know, we’ve seen this trick a million times, but who cares? I mean, they really know how —

(clip – car crashes through train gate)

The pop music is real nice in this movie too. I mean, it’s exactly 1979. They use “Don’t Bring Me Down” by ELO. Blondie doing “Heart of Glass”. How about a little Chic in there too!

So this movie is all about finally revealing the monster – showing to you what it looks like. But when you get right down to it, it doesn’t really matter. It’s more about what it does and why it does it. That’s how the reveal works when you can’t see the movie.

So, for Super 8, I’m giving it 3 out of 4 eyes open. All in all, a fun little ride.

Now, remember you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

I’m Tommy Edison, the Blind Film Critic.

Wow, Super 8. What’s the prequel? Motel 6?
