Mysterium Pictorum 10 - A BETTER TOMORROW
We didn't unanimously dislike a film before. This one broke that pattern. Listen to us trying to be polite and looking for the error in ourselves for one hour! I think it's quite funny ...
"A Better Tomorrow" bored me to no end. It was terribly dry, filled with lifeless stock-characters, there were no women (no, the cop's girlfriend doesn't count, since she wasn't a character), no interesting visuals - Just nothing to get me involved at all. "A Better Tomorrow" is a competently made action flick. That's all I can say about it.
Yet I do see the shakespearean revenge tragedy playing out and I do see the coolness (that never feels ridiculous, unlike in most other films of this kind). Doesn't work for me, but I see that it's there. I didn't see any particularly interesting set pieces and I didn't really see any believable emotion.
Something must be wrong with me. Everyone else seems to really, really love this. I was just bored. "A Better Tomorrow" doesn't even make interesting mistakes. There's just nothing for me, nothing at all.
Nothing, but an entertaining podcast, I hope. Give it a listen and tell us why we're wrong!
