Triple 9 (2016)
Seeing at the dollar theater was 95 cents too much.
Triple 9. "A gang of criminals and corrupt cops plan the murder of a police officer in order to pull off their biggest heist yet across town." The synopsis sounded interesting. Don't let it fool you. Featuring Kate Winslet, who would have been better off going down with the Titanic than appearing even momentarily in this, it was a bloody snoozefest. When it ended, seemingly 6 3/4 hours after it started, the audience gave a gasp of relief and ran out of the theater like hostages finally freed with only minor injuries. The idea was good if only they had an interesting story to go with it. It was a predictable shoot-em up corrupt cop movie that dragged on in too many places and never really engaged the viewer. I know why it was called Triple 9. It must be a German title. Nine! Nine! Nine! No, no, no. Don't go.
We just saw the movie 'Hugo'. The cinematography was stunning. The 3D wasn't over done just for effect but was smartly used to make you feel as though you were in the middle of the scene. Like an observer off to the side, watching the action unfold. If you are a movie buff and know the history of motion pictures, you wont want to miss this film. It showed a bit of the early production of movies and brought to life some of the scenes you only see in books or snippets of in documentaries on beginning cinema. The casting of Georges Melies was brilliant. Ben Kingsley did a great job. This movie may bring to light the history of film to those that may not have ever thought about it's humble origins and the imagination, innovation and determination that was needed to capture an audiences attention and hold it as well as it has all these years.
