Dark City (1998) – Director’s Cut
Had this film sitting on the HDD since last April and finally was in the mood to watch it. So lets break it down.
Conceptually this film had something going for it. Visually, this film had much too enjoy despite being a little too obvious with the miniatures laced throughout the scenes. With that said the cinematography was lovely.
But can that save a film from bad acting? Unfortunately not. The lead in this movie scores an A+ for bad acting. Over the top stuff from certain characters as well (Keifer), and I hate to say it, it’s laughable at times. And when you put that all together, its hard to take it seriously.
To sum it up, aesthetically pleasing to the eyes but the acting is too much to get over. This film had something going for it from the concept stage (enough that the Matrix used the same sets) but the execution of this wasn’t fulfilled properly.
VFX – 7/10
I’ve had this on loop for the past 30 minutes. The groove on this is HUGE. Pino, Steve and JM together are like bread and butter…
I think this will be on Wave 2….here’s hoping.
It was fun while it lasted.. now its back to reality. 🙃
Massive. Real Music.

Pictures speak for themselves. For free you really can’t go wrong. Pretty impressive at times and quite inspiring as well. It ain’t perfect and has its flaws but once you get a grip on it its pretty fucking enjoyable…especially with a drink on the side 😉
Ideas roaming….starting 2017. Goodbye 2016. 2016 in review? Perhaps..until then, PS2 continues on… 😀
