Looks like Wheatley has done it again.
can't fucking wait
Man builds luxurious towerblock for middle class and rich people, makes it self sufficient so the only reason to ever leave is to go to work. Things eventually turn messy
Think Lord of the Flies but instead of children on an island it's a tower block full of Patrick Bateman psychos
definitely sounds like a movie I would watch. the only movie that recently scratched my itch for something like that was snowpeircer, which I'm scared to even mention on this board.
It is ironic. What would JG Ballard have to say about the glib palliation of society's violent urges through violent spectacle in cinematic form? It is telling that they cast Tom Hiddleston known for his role of Loki -- Thor and the whole comic book sham are similarly a festoon of 21st century disingenuous decadent indulgence. The animal within man hungers, and it is fed these scraps; it purports to possess a higher morality, but its higher morality is cowardice, and the cowardly lion eats the coward's share of the meat while telling itself it is better than the rest because it is less barbaric. JG Ballard knew all this, and he would appreciate the irony that his work on this theme has been adapted to serve this function.
Let's try that again (this time with dubs)
Perfect, I'll check him out once I'm done reading the books I got for Christmas. Bunch of redditor-tier pleb shit (as is most of the stuff on my shelf) but I'm trying to turn that around.
Shit's dope. I love 70's-esque posters.
I was really looking forward to this movie, but it fucking sucked.
It's like 1/4 wayyyy too long and by the end you're sitting there super antsy just praying for it to be over. The aesthetic is visually great, but it's just such a fucking BORING movie. To me, it felt like a very simplistic message and story that could have been told in half an hour stretched out to what, 2 and a half? Three hours? I can't remember, it honestly felt like a 6 hour movie. It's also full of "ACTING", I guess going for a Shakespearean or Brazil feel but it just falls sooo fucking flat.
One of my highest anticipated movies of the year ended up being one of my least favorite.
To further expand upon it.
I could kind of see what he was going for, the slow descent into madness and chaos, where there's no singular event that makes everything go to shit (by the time that event happens, everything is already lunacy). Which sounds awesome on paper, and like a very unique storytelling device. But in realty, it just means a bunch of wasted screen time and dull scenes. Tbh senpai it's like a low rent Brazil, that's the vibe I got off it at least.
And it's not like American Psycho. You really expect the protagonist will be a lot like Bateman from the first scene of the movie, but he's completely forgettable. I guess the last act he becomes a complete nihilist, but it's more of a "I don't give a shit" meandering than a "revel in the chaos" American Psycho.
The scores for ME1 and 2 sound absolutely fuck all like stuff Mansell has done before in fact.
Furthermore, the music in the trailer isn't Mansell's work. It's Tangerine, you clueless faggot.
>Not convinced Hiddleston will bring it.
He does. It's his best acting role this year by far. What with his character being shit in Crimson Peak and he being unable to fake a southern accent in I saw the light.
mm, i don't know.. cautious hype, i geuss
