Thread: Atomic Blonde

    Default Atomic Blonde

    The adaptation of The Coldest City. Who's excited? BTW, the red band trailer is, of course, NSFW:

    Looks kinda like John Wick set in the 80's.

    Just saw this trailer, this looks awesome. Was this a comic or a novel?

    Pretty sure it was a comic/graphic novel. Might have to see if ComiXology has it

    Default Those Asking For a Black Widow Movie - Rejoice...

    ...as Atomic Blonde is being described as "Female James Bond", starring Charlize Theron. Check out the crazy trailer!

    I'm honestly surprised no one wants to talk about this film.

    Well...to be fair, it's not a character that most comics fans are familiar with. So no one really has much to say about it.

    Read up on the movie. It's being directed by David Leitch. He was one of the two creative minds behind John Wick. That should ensure this movie has amazing action sequences.

    Recently saw Atomic Blonde on Blu. Incredible film. Really enjoyed the late '80's stark winter setting, the incredible action sequences, and the amazing cinematography.

    The '80's pop/rock soundtrack was sublime - the music here reminded me yet again why the '80's was the best decade for music. Opening the movie up with New Order's great track Blue Monday '88 was perfect, and set the tone for the rest of the film. Each song was perfectly placed over the scene it went over - excellent.

    Also appreciated that the story/time period revolved around the fall of the Berlin Wall in November '89. To those who weren't around at the time, this was a huge international event - and even made MTV news (as was seen in the film), which didn't typically cover "serious" events like that. Seeing Kurt Loder in that old footage brought back memories of the era.

    My favorite action sequence were the long, drawn-out fight scenes when CH was protecting the defector from those thugs in the empty building. Great sequence, and much of this looked like one long shot.

    Also pleasantly surprised at several of the non-predictable plot points. Very refreshing.

    Really enjoyable spy actioner and sort of female James Bond.

    This movie quickly lost its charm. It was like one long music video and it got very stale very fast.
