Dunkirk: See it Big, by Rudie Obias

22 Jul

The newest film from Christopher Nolan is quite an experience. More than anything, Dunkirk is an intense and visceral film that puts the viewer in the middle of World War II as British and French soldiers attempt to escape from the German Army who recently occupied the country. The film is almost experimental in the way it unfolds and presented on the big screen — and I do emphasize the word “big.”

Kong: Skull Island: It Was Banality Killed the Beast, by Rudie Obias

10 Mar

Since the gigantic success of Godzilla in May 2014, audiences around the world were hungry for more monster movies starring larger-than-life beasts. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures (the studio and production company behind the movie starring the King of the Monsters) obliged and announced Kong: Skull Island a few months later during San Diego Comic-Con. The new monster movie is more of a re-telling of the iconic 1933 film King Kong than a sequel, prequel, or strict remake, but director Jordan Vogt-Roberts injects new life into Kong. It’s refreshing and fun, but doesn’t leave a lasting impression.
