SPlatter’s movie review:
Ask what is real.
Fight IRobot Storm Troopers.
Save the world.
It’s a fiery-paced action ride with trust issues. Watch it if your hungry for 100% action and a decent amount of facetime with Colin Farrell.
I’m not exactly sure where this next bit came from, but I imagined that a film like this would be quite a shock to the system of an ancient literary figure. So, I attempted to write a review from the mind of a favorite poet. Here are her potential thoughts on this film:
Emily Dickinson at the movies
by S. Platter
If I see a film and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that it is sci-fi.
In darkened room I waited
Eyes frozen, open wide,
For frame to frame unfettered
Moved time on glowing picture tide.
The characters, half-clothed,
Seemed so happily in love
That I thought I oughtn’t spy them there
In voyeuristic hove.
But they seemed yet undaunted
by my own presence there;
we were drawn in fast by sudden pace
and inoffensive gore.
The future in my present
Some men seemed made of steel,
And women swarmed and mannish moved
Demonstrating how I feel.
To fight for men, for causes yet
To sense the pressured pulse,
I was confused, but centered still,
Made stronger by the rush.
I know not when I’ll see again
Such glow of pace and force,
But God himself must meet us there
When future is past once more.
Is that scary scene with exploding eyeballs in the remake too?
No. I haven’t seen the Schwarzenegger version, but I hear that this one is far less grotesque. But that they kept the homage to that one by adding the girl with a unique torso…
Quite a unique review. Could probably stand alone as a fine peice of poetry.
