claro3 said: TELL ME ALL YOUR THOUGHTS ON SNOWPIERCER
OK so I read spoilers before I saw it (I KNOW I KNOW) so I knew what the ~*twist*~ was going to be, but honestly, even if I hadn’t known I think I would have figured it out pretty quickly. But when I think about it, the ~*twist*~ was probably one of the least important parts of the movie…? I mean of course it’s major and casts some heavy implications over the whole train world but there’s just so much else going on, I just. I. ACK.
Loved: The Concept (“e’erbody in the world
gettin’ tipsy on a train”). Tilda Swinton. The different environments in the different cars, and the train setting overall and how that affected what the characters could do and where the movie could go (night vision and torches, the part where the train turned to face itself with the shooting, the aquarium, NIGHT VISION AND TORCHES). Minsoo and Yona. Octavia Spencer. Tilda Swinton. The whole scene in the classroom (I snort-laughed during the song). The complete lack of a romantic storyline. The harsh yet still somewhat ambiguous ending. Tilda FRAKKING Swinton a.k.a. the new queen of my awkwardly hilarious nightmares.
Didn’t Love So Much: Very low plausibility, quite a few plot holes — the whole thing sort of starts unraveling when you start asking too many questions. Awkward retrospective monologuing. Loved the characters, but felt like we didn’t actually get to know them very well? Especially Curtis and Mason, what I wouldn’t give for a bit of backstory!
I just saw it a few hours ago and am still processing NOW TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS I MUST KNOW THEM
