He can make happy scenes as equal as sad, desperate, hopelessness, exhaustion and anger ones. Sam soon has to make a difficult choice: stay with his father or sneak into the heart of the city, uncover Clu's true intentions and fight his way to the data-stream portal that links both worlds. Following her into the Outlands, a region of undeveloped desert on the outskirts of the Grid, he reunites with his father, now an exile in hiding. I'll give you two guesses as to which he chooses. There isn't a moment though where any of it becomes an outright distraction; there are just a few too many plot points that aren't brought to a satisfying conclusion. Life of Pi is one of those. In fact, the whole of the experience is incredibly immersive and there wasn't a moment -- not a single moment -- that I didn't feel entrenched in Legacy's two worlds.
The Gnostic undertones are none-too-subtle, even more so than they are in The Matrix sequels, but each one injects welcome moral and philosophical conflict into a sequel that could have been nothing more than an oversimplified cash-in. Flynn and Clu, Alan and Tron, Laura and Yori, Gibbs and Dumont, Dillinger and Sark. Part of your fullest enjoyment of this film would come from everything about it being a surprise. It is a distinct success among the largely abysmal offerings of 2013 so far, don't miss it. However, while the noise in question will surely draw a few eyes its way, it occurs as a result of the film's grainfield and the image's overall clarity, nothing more. Cross-channel pans are transparent, directionality is eerily accurate, and dynamics are rousing and enveloping.
Oblivion ticks all the boxes for correct use of literary devices and establishes enough original cannon to stick in your mind long after the credits start rolling. A shorter cut would tighten up the story and eliminate some of the slower sections which I think hurt the movie's overall rhythm and flow. The interface itself is unnecessarily cumbersome, requiring users to enter various three-letter initials on a hi-scores arcade screen. It's an appetizer at best, but the test trailer makes it well worth watching. We were, literally and figuratively, in the same boat. Synopsis Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 20 years. It is obvious because we are seeing for almost 2 hours just one character.
Some of the images were so beautiful that the audience gasped at many of them. Very few movies allow an actor represent so many emotions. I like to think of it as a big small movie. Typically, effects-driven films of its ilk are all-style, no-substance constructs. But don't let anyone tell you about the movie plot which is excellent!!! One that was definitely ambitious and is presented in 'glossy' and vivid wide-screen, yet has a sort of nice-light-snack kind of feel to it. Almost everything in Legacy's Grid is exotic, elaborate and alien, from the angular architecture of its city to the fluid ribbons of light that trail its slick and speedy war machines. In the end, Lee is interested in the individual's place in the universe as he struggles to harness nature and yet live in harmony with these elements.
While the framing device of a story told to a stranger uses the old flashback, the lonely lifeboat is as new as any story told in the last century. Just as Flynn's world has evolved, so too has the Tron saga. It is narrated by both, young Pi and the Adult Pi, it uses music all the time so there is not space for uncomfortable silents and the rhythm of the scenes is fast. And the result -- a stunning visual spectacle featuring returning Tron stars Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner -- is as striking today as Tron was in 1982. The conflict with the gross cook aboard the Japanese cargo ship taking Pi's family and animals to Canada is emblematic of the challenges facing the gifted with the groundlings. This was a pleasant surprise all throughout the film. I left a 2 hour film and wasn't bored for a second.
The storyline is lacking a little bit; you can see the ideas the script writers wanted to insert, but there are too many ideas for only 2 hours of film. If you like sci-fi, you will thoroughly enjoy the plot line, the action, the actors, wonderful visuals of earth, the music and the well-done special effects. It isn't a perfect sequel and it isn't a perfect film, but its notable performances, overwhelming visuals, outstanding Daft Punk score and fairly compelling story help it weather the worst of its narrative storms. Fans of the film will hardly be able to contain their excitement. No preaching going on here and there could be. Legacy boasts one of the most gorgeous transfers of 2011 and it's only March. Plot wasn't sophisticated, probably described as feel good, but frankly, it was perfect.
I find it surprising that many are critical of the 'unbelievable' aspect of this film. And I am not necessarily thinking about a sequel : just surprise me! Overall, I would definitely recommend going to see this movie in the cinema, on the biggest screen that you can find. However, I thought I'd leave the best for last. The problem was, back in 1982, there was no such thing as the Internet, and, apart from business types, most people didn't really know diddlysquat about computers yet. Not many films can make an animal with so many human features and yet never stop being a wild animal. Just watch the trailer if you need to be intrigued.
The images were created at film resolution, often using methods which don't even involve the rasterization of images, so they look perfectly smooth. At least not to the extent that it requires a reduction in score. As for my take on this landmark motion picture, I have to admit that I will always be able to reflect on it in its original context. I haven't felt that sort of magic in a movie theater in a long, long time. Olga Kurylenko's statuesque profile is unfortunately not matched by her acting ability and I often found it difficult to believe in her character's actions and emotions.
Although it is not given to us to have them all, Pi's piety practically makes us believers in the universal brotherhood. There are many ways to describe Oblivion, but the softly spoken afterword by Tom Cruise's character really makes you feel the human heartbeat of this sci-fi epic. The most important thing of this film is it character. Also, if you've read the book and are concerned that the story you loved may have been compromised in anyway, worry no longer. Excuse me, but : wow! And, although it was originally panned by critics, those who have taken the time to look closer, have noticed that there is more to this film than there first seems to be. Like the original Tron, Legacy is a film of two worlds: the dingy, all-too-real world of the Users and the neon-stepped world of the Programs, both of which look absolutely amazing in high definition. Oblivion the movie is an entirely different beast that values a human story and characters that are driven by common purpose.
The technical encode is equally impressive. In this self-sustaining virtual world -- a world in which isomorphic algorithms began emerging from the primordial data-ooze and gaining sentience on their own accord -- even the existence of the Users has been called into question. Tom Cruise plays Tom Cruise but that's not a bad thing in this case, in fact his natural charisma carries the movie through some of its slower sections. Nowadays computer graphics are nearing perfection, and that's why a movie like this will never be made again. If you haven't seen this movie yet, to fully appreciate how groundbreaking it is, you must be willing to imagine that you're back in a time where the most complex computer animation to be seen were the moving blocks in video arcades or the 5 seconds of wire-frame models in Star Wars.
