It Deserves to be a Hit. It Eventually Will Be.... (by Con-Deuce)
My 20 year old daughter said it best when describing her reaction after seeing "Colossal", she said "I wasn't prepared to like it as much as I did.". Ten, fifteen and certainly twenty years ago, "Colossal" would have been a big hit in theaters. I am absolutely certain that this movie will eventually catch on and be at least a BIG cult hit.I think many who see "Colossal" will be very surprised. Not by Hathaway's performance. She is always a reliable actor but by the film itself. I am reluctant to call "Colossal" allegorical because that <more>
might scare away potential viewers but that is what it is at heart. It is also one of those films that can be enjoyed at one or multiple levels: you can enjoy it strictly as an action comedy film or as an action comedy with a an allegory about relationships, regret and yearning to be more than what you are. Or you could view it as a satire on action films. It's a lot of things but it's also intelligently and thoughtfully made. It amazes me that there are really only four main characters in the entire movie yet the great director Nacho Vigalondo makes the film feel fully populated. The main cast is excellent with Hathaway clearly outstanding but Jason Sudeikis is also really good. He's an actor who plays a character so well that you feel it is part of him. In the end, it's Nacho Vigalondo's direction that makes the tricky material work. When I see a film like "Colossal" it makes me hopeful for films because there are directors like him and Fede Alvarez who directed 2016's great "Don't Breathe".
Can a movie smoothly transition from one genre to another? The answer is a colossal yes! (by Anurag-Shetty)
Colossal tells the story of Gloria Anne Hathaway . Gloria has a slight addiction to alcohol. Soon personal events in her life, forces her to move back to her hometown, from New York City. Around the same time, a massive monster begins attacking Seoul, a city in South Korea. Gloria has this eerie sensation that, this monster's rampage is somehow connected to her downward spiral. Colossal is a one of a kind film. You have never seen anything like this movie before. Despite being a sci-fi film, the script by writer-director Nacho Vigalondo is completely original. This is a welcome change, in <more>
this era of movie studios' obsession to start movie franchises & have shared movie universes. This film is genre-hopping shenanigans, in its best form. Colossal doubles up as a comedy, drama & sci-fi movie, changing genres from time to time effortlessly, without messing up anything. Kudos Nacho Vigalondo. The visual effects are superb. The performances are mind blowing. Anne Hathaway is spectacular as Gloria. Hathaway gives us another unforgettable performance. Jason Sudeikis has given the best performance of his career as Oscar. Sudeikis essays the various shades of his complex character, with utmost sincerity & grace. Austin Stowell is great as Joel. Tim Blake Nelson is awesome as Garth. Dan Stevens is brilliant as Tim. Hannah Cheramy & Nathan Ellison are impressive as Young Gloria & Young Oscar, respectively. Colossal is a must watch for everyone, who is tired of watching the same old genre of movies on the big screen.
***Spoiler if you have not seen it.*****I think the movie is a monster movie on a superficial level but there is a deeper social message. Domestic abuse and alcoholism. A person who has low self-worth often get trapped in abusive situations and sometimes uses alcohol as a means of escape. It becomes a situation where they bounce between abusive relationships. The alcoholism aspect of the movie also adds to the message. They end up hurting people accidentally. The people being attacked by a giant monster is there every day, even they know it happens every day, is the same as family and friends <more>
of a person who has a substance abuse problem. I felt the whole movie was metaphorical. I might be stating the obvious.
Better for the old souls, I guess (by theresajensen)
If you're a deep thinker and introspection is your thing, you are going to thank God a movie like this came along as movies like this are so few and far between. It's definitely better for mature audiences, as in, they've lived a long time and are humble enough to see themselves in it. It, seriously, should connect with everyone, but if you're young and arrogant as so many of us are when we're young, the intense realities will not have a place to go and, sadly as I read in so many comments, the movie might be rejected. I encourage the haters to come back and see it again <more>
in a decade or so. I'd love to be there for the ah-hahs. My 19-year-old son is going to eat this one up, the old soul that he is. I can't wait to hear what he has to say when he sees it.
It kinda funny when Hollywood for years has suffer from endless mediocre movie and movie sequels that nobody ask but when a truly original movie come out it get under radar of many people and this years the original movie that is Colossal.To fully understand and enjoy this movie i suggest you guys to watch it in theater because there are so many things happen during the run time of this movie still trap in my head right now and it really hard to explain it.The best way i can to sum up this movie is it funny it bizarre in the best way that possible the characters is well portray and actors <more>
give good performing through out the movie.My issues is although the movie thrilling me all the way end but it left behind many unanswered questions and some of the choice the characters make complete betray the movie built up that very bugging me out
I'll start from the bottom: The special effects are beautiful, Jason Sudeikis gives his usual stellar performance, but on this one its Anne Hathaway that shines through. Her brilliant performance is what holds this movie together and gives it life. Her emotions are painfully real and her expressions are spot on. I highly recommend it for all fans of Sci-Fi and absurd
Delightful 'Absurdist' Film -- Hathaway Soars (by A_Different_Drummer)
In my many of my prior reviews I have "beaten the drum" on one particular theme -- namely, that back in the days before CGI and the studios' ravenous hunger for new franchises to monetize indefinitely, films worked based on the ability of the director and the stars to "connect" with the audience.One word. Connection. But the implications can be astounding.Colossal, for example, reminded me of 1966's Georgy Girl, oddly also a story about a young girl whose Life needs a complete remake, and she more or less has to start over from scratch.Georgy Girl was a major hit <more>
in the 1960s -- without any sci-fi elements or SFX -- because, somewhere around the 5 minute mark, everyone in the theatre, even the guys, began to identify with the character. In other words, connection. Once you have connection, anything is possible.Recommended. Sit back. Think of times in your own life when all four wheels fell off the wagon. Enjoy it.And pay special attention to Hathaway's wonderful performance. For an A-list star who was weaned in the Disney studio, and held her own against Batman, she dons a hairdo that looks like it was done by a local vet ... and then proceeds to sell the role so effectively that, after a while, you honestly wonder if anyone else could have played the lead?
Greetings from Lithuania.I found "Colossal" 2016 much more interesting, dark and deep then i thought i will be after reading a premise. This isn't your typical comedy staring Jason Sudeikis - it isn't funny movie, except if you are looking for some very dark comedy. Premise here looks like from a mind of Spike Jonze of Charlie Kaufman. Although it isn't as brilliant as those two might have made this movie - i loved the story overall and movie itself. Ovreall, "Colossal" is a kinda fresh take on a premise. There is a very dark humor down below, but i enjoyed <more>
it very much in a first place because of very solid writing, pacing at running time 1 h 43 min this movie never dragged and not by "a numbers" movie. Good, underrated movie.
A Surprising Feat of Fun, Fantasy and Horror (by bkrauser-81-311064)
Watch it! You may love it, you may hate it, but I guarantee you will never forget it. To say more about Colossal; to go over the themes and characterizations in earnest - heck, even to give you a synopsis would give you too much info. Just stop what you're doing, prime yourself for the uniquely absurd and enjoy the show.Okay fine, for the sake of cogency and to fill up the margins I will give you a little more. Colossal, spiritually is Kaiju movie a la Godzilla 1954 and King Kong 1933 . Which is to say through much of the movie, there is a gigantic monster destroying Seoul, South <more>
Korea. Yet instead of focusing on the destruction and mayhem, the film concerns itself with two lonely alcoholics halfway across the globe, who are more connected to monster's sudden appearance than they both realize.Our primary protagonist is New York party girl and out-of-work writer Gloria Hathaway , who's alcohol dependency has left her destitute and traveling back to her hometown to lick her wounds. While there, she reacquaints with Oscar Sudeikis an amiable towny who inherited his small town bar from his family way back when. Both feel stuck, both feel trapped and both see the monster in Seoul as an expression of their inner demons and maybe even a release.Now will you watch it? Now will you see this awkward mix of fantastical lunacy and indie movie sensibilities? Now will you take a few hours out of your day to check out what might be the most unique movie of the year? No? Would it help if I told you Anne Hathaway is pitch perfect as a multifaceted and deeply flawed heroine? I for one was never aboard the Hathaway Express. Don't get me wrong, she's a fine actress, but the movies and the characters she gravitated towards always felt more like a marketing decision than a genuine desire to spread her wings. Here however, Hathaway's rueful pity party is immediately beguiling. Not in a sad-funny, quirky, Lost in Translation 2003 kind of way. No this movie has a whole other kind of vibe. The kind of unique, wanton, weirdly satisfying vibe that can only be sustained by a dude named Nacho behind the camera.The direction here can best be described as fierce and picturesque. Director Nacho Vigalondo clearly has an appreciation for a bright-light and boozy version of Midwest Americana. He has such a command of the look and feel in-fact, that when he knowingly breaks cinematic rules to further the story, every big reveal packs that much more of an emotional wallop. What we then end up with is a delicate balance of off-putting tones and surprising payoffs. Played by any other movie, one scene would be raucously funny instead of a cold snap of horror. One scene would be played off as romantic instead of goofy. The setup says "sad," but the payoff says we're in for big laughs...and on, and on.Thus I leave you with that: a mind primed for something unique and interesting that jolts you with surprise after surreal surprise.
