Talking About Movies - Snowpiercer

I've mentioned before that my Dad and I are big movie fans. It all started as a way to help give him a little break when my mom was sick, just an hour or two to not think about it and kind of escape, and since then it's just kind of stuck. When Will and I are out in Arizona during the winters we see a movie almost ever week, it makes up for the lack of movies we see out in West Virginia (being that the theater is over an hour away haha). Because of all of this movie watching, I recently started to think I could put it to some good use and do a movie review every so once in a while, mainly when I am completely blown away by one. Also, this post title totally reminds me of an SNL sketch
To start, last week we saw Snowpiercer, and I was completely blown away. I've been excitedly waiting to see it all year since its initial release overseas for so many reasons. To begin with, it's an exciting post apocalyptic action thriller with a pretty darn incredible cast: Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Kang-ho Song, Octavia Spencer, Jamie Bell and William Hurt to name a few. Truth talk: I have such a serious love of Chris Evans that began in high school. It's the type of love where I'm just happy to see him working and making a living, haha such a weird thing I know.

The movie takes place in the not too distant future where the remaining survivors of earth are traveling around the world on a high speed train. The poor and destitute, who are forced to live in squalor in the back of the train, plan an uprising after being horrifically mistreated for the so long. It's really hard to say too much more than that without spoiling some truly amazing scenes, but I will say this movie seriously has some of the most incredible action scenes-- some of the best I have seen in a long time. There's one scene in particular that completely blew my mind. They definitely took the idea less is more to heart.

While the movie has a very limited release, and might not be in a theater near you, it is now out on VOD, so if you're a fan of a great action movies with some amazing acting I totally say you should spend the $6.99 to rent it for the night. It's worth every penny! If you have already seen it I would love to know what you think.

  1. Yay, I love when bloggers talk movies! :) I keep hearing how awesome Snowpiercer is so many people! Action/sci-fi isn't my favorite genre, but I'm always down for a good movie, no matter what kind it is. Andrew would probably love it. We should def hunt it down!

  3. I'm so on board with movie posts! This Snowpiercer flick has intrigued me; I've heard it's SO GOOD but yesterday we saw Deliver Us From Evil instead.

  4. I enjoyed it more than my husband, but it was definitely entertaining. Kind of along the likes of The Possession from a few years ago, you can't take it *too* seriously.

  7. Snowpiercer is a very good film that doesn't hold back; creating a refreshingly unique environment that it uses to its full advantage.
