We have definitely amused ourselves in doing this particular set of reviews. It was fascinating to see the Scotts’ style over a few (um, four) decades.
J: In space nobody can hear you scream. Slow burn but magnificent film.
A: not one I’ll rewatch endlessly, but beautifully constructed.
A: I appreciate what it’s doing, and it is beautiful, but I doubt I’ll rewatch it.
J: Hiiiiiiggghway tooooo the Daaangerzone. I have the need, the need for speed. #inverted.
A: I will never ever think this is as good a film as all those 80s boys think it is. 30 min of awesome flying; the rest is stupid love story.
J: Axel in the key of F … Unfortunately the film is an F too.
A: such a disappointment after the first one.
J: When I think of this film, the music is the first thing which comes to mind every time… hats off to Zimmer.
A: spectacular face off between Washington and Hackman. Excellent tension.
J: The terrifying reality of the world we’ve lived in for a long time now. Great ending.
A: another excellent one for tension, and Sinister Level Ten.
Ridley – Gladiator (2000)
J: Are you not entertained ? … not really … I was asleep again Ridley.
A: I have learnt I cannot watch epics with J.
J: Intricate and emotional.
A: for the bromance, yes; the female character is a disappointment. I admit to adoring Robert Redford.
J: Should have been a mini series, shouldn’t have been ‘Robin Hood’
A: quite pretty and an ambitious scope… that just didn’t work.
J: Stunning from start to finish.
A: as above.
