Vantage Point on Blu-ray review

Vantage Point - Blu-ray

I’m going to keep this review as spoiler-free as I can, so I’m not be divulging the plot twist that is supposed to be the highlight of this movie. Partly because in my opinion it’s not worth actually telling people, and everyone should get the chance to shout at the screen Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot at that juncture.

But to be honest it wasn’t the only time I was forced to voice my incredulity as the events portrayed in this movie, whole sections make about as much sense as Amy Whinehouse does after a complete bender.

If you didn’t catch the promotions for this movie the premise is simple, if not borrowed from at least three other movies I can think of. We’re presented with 23 minutes or time which usually runs to about 10 minutes of screentime, in which the same events are seen from a different perspective. With each ‘vantage point’ we get more information about the characters, their motivations and additional clues to what’s actually going on. Which, unsurprisingly, isn’t what we’re initially drawn to think.

Bourne…again!

Those nice people at ASUS have invited me to see a pre-screening of The Bourne Ultimatum on the 16th in London!
I’m really excited to see this movie. Possibly more than the other sequels we’ve suffered this summer. The only decision I’ve got to make is should I post my review on here or Den of Geek, or both? I think that will depend on how I feel about it, as if it sucks I’ll probably take longer to write it, where if I’m gushing I’ll want to talk about it first thing on the 17th.

Bullitt!!!! No please…not this!

It’s been circulating that a remake of Bullitt staring Brad Pitt has been ‘greenlit’.
Someone stop these people. It’s bad enough that half the films released this summer are either sequels or remakes with them raping another classic. I’ll admit Pitt was in Ocean’s 11, which was a reasonable film of a dismal original. But Bullitt is total class from beginning to end. And I don’t think Brad could really drive a car like McQueen if his life depended on it.

The real McQueen
