Movie of the Week: Brick


Well…this was interesting.

It was a very well made movie and considering there was no budget, even more impressive.

The script was great and most of the actors were great.

BUT…

Before you go rushing off to see this movie, let me say this first.

You have to accept this movie’s reality

That high schoolers would talk like Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca in the year 2006.

And it’s not as easy as you think.

The first 10-15 minutes as you are trying to wrap your head around the dialogue, you will think you have made a horrible decision.

But once you accept and embrace it, the movie is really good.

Side note: Anyone who saw Eve’s Bayou…who would have thought Meagan Good (Cisely) would have a better acting career than Jurnee Smollett (Eve)?
