Compuserve: Tree of Life Review

Compuserve: In the Beginning, God Created Terrence Malick. And Terrence Malick begat Emmanuel Lubezki and named him cinematographer. And together they composed visions of the beginnings of the universe, beginning with a bright, colorful spectrum of light followed by a primordial ooze. Cells expand and jellyfish are created, ultimately a pair of dinosaurs, one lying on the ground as though dying while a curious young fellow prances about the watery rocks, places a foot on the fallen creature as though to assert dominance, then matter-of-factly walks off to locate new discoveries. The Creation of the Universe does not take place at the beginning of the film, which would be the logical point, but using cinema’s magical alterations of time and space, “The Tree of Life” asserts the awe-inspiring Creation as a sudden departure from the reality of life in a Texas town during the 1950’s.

Cowboys and Aliens was not a big disappointment to me or anyone else that I know that saw it. We all loved it and for the same reasons. The characters, the actors that played them, the fresh storyline that's not been wasn't a reboot or sequel or prequel..just a new story and different.

I guess we have to agree to disagree on that one.


Five Great Movies: Brad Pitt

CO - Let’s be honest… it’s always a good time to be Brad Pitt.

He’s excellent in the film, which reminded us that beyond his good looks he’s appeared in a number of modern classics worthy of mention in our ongoing series Five Great Movies.

I think I found a new respect for his acting in Lengends of the Fall. That is when I started to like his acting a little. Seven was very good though.

Fight Club was awesome! Quite a twist at the end of the film too.
