Movie Reviews: Women In Love + Insurgent

Woman In Love (1969)

Glenda Jackson and Oliver Reed star in this tale set in the 1920s which was directed by Ken Russell. People look 1970s and discourse on figs. This was increasingly lurid and full of disconnected scenes. Oliver Reed is a creepy staring animal abusing jackass.

This was not enticing and full of intellectual laziness. There are cows and dancing and this was stilted and OTT. There is an infamous naked wrestling scene where Reed and his BFF grunt and roll around in front of a roaring fire. It's hilarious and oddly disturbing.

This was primitive and there is a mad old biddy. Reed has ferocity. This was fervent and does not leave you rapt. This was exceptionally bad and terrible and weirdly unnerving.

Best Lines:

“Masterpiece of performance.”

“You're doing catkins.”

“What a liberty!”

“They hate him for it.”

“Nothing more to improve.”

“Where does his go, go to?”

“The vulgar way.”

“Even goats won't taste it.”

“I don't like trooping off in a gang.”

“I live because I'm living.”

“Forbidden from utterance.”

“Stopped the widows coal.”

“Their hate is better than your love.”

“Unpardonable liberty.”

“Some little type.”

“Most awfully jolly.”

“Pity we aren't madder.”

“I always think I'm going to be loved, then I'm let down.”

“Cling to the living and won't let go.”

“I don't want love.”

“I'm bored by the rest.”

“Greed for self importance and love.”

“Go away, there's nothing for you here.”

“Lucky's vulgar.”

“Accursed present.”

“I don't want old things.”

Insurgent (2015)

This was different from the horrible book but still horrible. It has factions, war, Tris, Theo James being hot, exposition and law. This was still horrible. The 4th film in this series 'Ascendant' was supposed to be made in 2017 but was cancelled. I can see why, this film was nigh unwatchable.

Why are people uncritical endorsers of the system? So many people have mental issues. Why is there a wall? Who built the wall? I hate the book so little was expected. Why did people agree definitively to their own humilation? To place themselves in the straitjacket of the faction system? To confine whatever tiny movements they are then capable of to a walled ruined city?

Actors mumble and there is no joyful release and what are they protecting for future generations? Situations are aggravated and Kate Winslet obsesses over a relic. This was a grave error. Who makes the clothes? The shoes? The tech? Who runs the power plant? Who grows the food and where is it sold? What upended society? There are looming consequences.

Everyone is very tan. This was overwrought and there is new and non-terrifying terrain. Tris wants to murder Kate Winslet. Who styles hair? There is no shapeless unease just staring and Tris fixates on a single course and refuses to look beyond it. There are negative consequences.

This was non tumultuous and fights ensue because people are untoward. This does not echo powerfully and there is no significant disorder and pieces of tech are waved. Kate Winslet puts ambition ahead of everything. This does not foster creativity and innovation and people make assumptions. Some smarmy guy smarms. It's been a while since I read the first 2 books and saw 'Divergent' and so I've forgotten who everyone is.

Who makes the guns, bullets and uniforms? People behave egregiously. Who maintains the train and the tracks and how is the train powered? The factionless lurk. There is bad acting and useless fights. WTF is going on? There is no common interest or insight. There is no reality. This corresponds to no need. Why are people looking for Four?

There are unresolved challenges and hysteria over people who live their lives a little bit differently. Four's mother shows up and she looks the same age as him! This was non-essential. Four's real name is Tobias. Four's mother was a crap mom who ran away and left him with his abusive dad. This was particularly painful and awful and Tris is increasingly defined by her opposition.

James broods and there is no real and persistent threat. There is willingness to take human life in pursuit of aims. Four's creepy mom stares. I assume Four and Tris are sexing. This was inadequate and there is no fortitude or dignity just semi-murderous dissent. This is unfavoured. Nobody cleared the ruins?

There is no distinction or principles or integrity. What wreaked havoc on the community? Gloria ab intus. Tris is desperate and foolish. Rowdy groups of lads lad around. There are no complicated conflicts and things will only happen on Kate Winslet's say so.

Maggie Q shows up briefly and there is increased level of public disorder. Jai Courtney, Mekhi Phifer, Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Octavia Spencer, Zoe Kravitz, Ray Stevenson, Naomi Watts, Suki Waterhouse, Janet McTeer and Daniel Dae Kim star. This was unwatchable. Tris' brother Caleb colludes in a myth. People talk of a feared cataclysm. This is stupid and endless VFX. There is a message and a twist. This was unviable. People think this was a valid philosphical way to live? There are ancient enmities and tragic reponses that are not sensible. There is a nice song and visual toward the end but that is the only good bit. There is a sequel hook.

Best Lines:

“Social order.”

“Posion us from within.”

“Civilization's last hope.”

“One true enemy.”

“Terms of your sanctuary here.”

“Take whatever power you think you have away.”

“Stealing our charity.”

“Nothing she isn't capable of.”

“Ready for war.”

“Made his own choice.”

“Factional law.”

“Where's your scary boyfriend?”

“I come from outside the wall.”

“Designed your city as an experiment.”

“We were never the problem.”

“”No one sees it. Ever.”

“Because you're so popular?”

“Who knows whats out there.”

“You'll never find out.”

“Emerge from your isolation and rejoin is. We've allowed you to believe you're the last of us. But you're not. Mankind waits for you, with hope, beyond the wall.”
