No Way Out (1987)
It's philosophy, not Action or politics!
I think y'all are missing the point of this movie - especially those of you who think the ending should be dropped.
In the end, the questions we are left with are those of ethics and morality: if I use false or fabricated information to arrive at a true answer, am I wrong? Should I be punished? Should I not pursue the conclusion? If I fight against a cover- up, but all of my other representations are false, should I be trusted or believed in my one instance of honesty? Should I be allowed to get away with my trespasses?
This movie challenges the viewer to reflect on these issues, which would not exist without the current ending.
Finally, this is Kevin Costner at perhaps his most perfect, luscious moment. Worth seeing once!
Wrath of the Titans (2012)
It's about the volcanoes, stupid
The beauty and ultimate - and perhaps only - genius of this movie is the special effects. Let yourself go. You can see how ancient people would have created these stories to explain the mind- blowing power of volcanic action. I think that experience alone makes the whole movie worthwhile.
Yes, the actors are all big names with no real dialogs or parts to portray. Yes, they seem to get their Greeks and Romans confused. Yes, it's disappointing in many ways. But in the end, there is a majesty and awesomeness of the volcanoes/ titans that cannot be ignored. In the end, this movie helps us to emotionally experience how people from thousands of years ago would have seen and interpreted geologic events. And that alone makes this movie worth watching once.
