Pinhole Movie Reviews

Snowpiercer by tincolor

One of the few perks of living in Japan when it comes to movies, we get the weird ones first. “Only Lovers Left Alive,” “This Must Be The Place,” and now “Snowpiercer.” Chris Evans, John Hurt, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton and Ed Harris all live on a retro-futuristic train that speeds around a frozen, lifeless Earth. The poor people live at the back and the rich people live at the front and they’re about to do battle! There is so much I hated about this movie in general, but it was the poorly executed details that really got my blood boiling. There are scenes where the camera is just being shaken for no apparent reason, there are scenes were lines have been cut off mid sentence with no regard for English grammar, there are scenes that are so poorly acted it feels like maybe someone got the footage mixed up. You may have heard there was some controversy around the Weinstein brothers trying to re-edit the film. Trust me, if you manage to sit through this film, you’ll wish the Weinstein brothers had gotten their way. Barely, just barely watchable.
