Battle: Los Angeles

by on Apr.03, 2011, under General, Life

We went to see Battle:Los Angeles today. Not exactly the first ones to go, but what the heck, no lines. It had all the things I like to see in a movie, action and aliens, which was the good news. The bad news is that it was filmed for television. They decided to use the hand camera technique. Some people see this and like the ‘realism’, me, I see bad camera work. When you’re sitting in front of a 100 ft screen, jittery closeups are not realistic, they are nauseating. Swinging the camera around like Uncle Bob at Disney World does not convey action, it conveys vertigo. Go watch Battlestar Galactica, the reboot. These shots were occasional and for effect only, not the whole fracking show. I could have really enjoyed this movie, instead I’m talking about this. Enough said.
