The Giver

One of the most memorable shots for me was when Jonas’ duotone perspective was opened up ever so slightly after receiving a memory of the color red...

The Expendables 3

The movie paints this as camaraderie, and possibly even heroism: if I’ve lost too much or done too much evil, all I’m good for is to die among others like me or take a paycheck if I survive. This message is actually profoundly sad...
