Something Real andGood

Note: The following post contains no significant advances of the plot or the end of the film.

Luke Rivett directs Something Real And Good. Tells the story of a man and woman that establish relationship in an airport lounge when their flights are delayed by bad weather.

If you want to lose 1 hour and 35 minutes of your life, you can choose this film.

The entire film is designed to know the thoughts of individuals that don’t matter to us, to be witnesses to the “existentialism” from outsiders and how they analyze their own wealth of mental atrocities to finaly get to the idea that be more superficial is the solution to be happier.

Alex Hannant and Matt Jones are the protagonists of this botch and are in charge to do it more boring, seriously sometimes it seems that they didn’t know how to act…

The story has a good basis: two people meet in an airport and by majeure force get to know each other more, with a similar structure can be entered more interesting situations and dialogs, but NO, it is not the case…it’s all going on a long and boring dialog that does not generate more interest. It is not showy on a visual level and the screenplay is nothing of the other world.

Zerorojo makes the social service to prevent the viewers and tell them that this movie is a terrible waste of time.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES Zerorojo recommends it.

    Are there really no good sides to this movie at all? Surely you must have liked at least one thing about it?

      No. when you see a movie you expect above all to be entertained, this movie doesn’t. It’s flat and boring, I haven’t seen such a bad movie since a saw Wrecked. No comedy, bad drama, no romance, no action, no fantasy…no nothing…to me is very difficult to put this movie in a genre…maybe the soundtrack wasn’t that bad. Thanks for reading!!

        Is it? Your comment is very intriguing. Now because you gave it such a bad review, I’m going to want to see this for myself. If I discover that what you say is true, then I can at least admire the production side of it. It better have good lighting, great shots, hopefully moving shots too, set design and good directing, even though you say the acting is poor.

        If all that is not impressive, then all I would think about is you and how right you were the whole time!

      The production is very normal, not outstanding at all, the argument isn’t made for great shots…set design boring. But if you like to see it: be my guest, but after that I will not accept that you scream: where are my hour and 35 min of life…where?…If you see it I will like to know your opinion.

    Wow Zero, really strong case you have in supporting your view. However I must agree and take the blame for going ahead and seeing the movie just to test your review. All I could think of the whole time was, “Zero was right.” I’ve learned that a good script + good acting = good directing. In this case there was bad directing because of bad acting (a bit more work was needed with the actors) which was the result of a bad script. I kept thinking about the lines and I was surprised. They were actually quite lazy. I could tell that the actors needed a bit more from the script as far as dialogue is concerned because there were a lot of parts where they felt like saying a bit more but couldn’t because that was all the script allowed.

    Too many parts were dull in that the characters just stayed still saying nothing at a point in the movie where a decent relationship would have developed to the point of having genuinely decent and long conversations. The fact that there was very little music to help with the feeling and atmosphere of the characters kind of ruined it for me.

    From a filmmaker’s point of view, I’m also glad that I saw it. I could use it as an example of what not to do when putting together a production. All mistakes in the movie came from preproduction.

      I’m totally agree…I recently saw Blue Valentine and it brought to my mind “Something Real And Good” but in a opposite way…Blue Valentine is an independent film as this, BUT, the acting is so real, so emotive that the actors didn’t even needed a good script to make of the movie something to remember…although is a little bit slow…could give a good lesson to “Something real…”: good story + good acting= good movie. Thanks for your answer. 🙂
