Review: COLOSSAL / FREE FIRE / PHOENIX FORGOTTEN

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who leaves New York and moves back to her hometown after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend (Dan Stevens). When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spiral out of control, she must figure out why her seemingly insignificant existence is having such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

Anne Hathaway was in the second trimester of her pregnancy while filming COLOSSAL. (IMDB)

On March 13, 1997, several mysterious lights appeared over Phoenix. Three teens went into the desert shortly after the incident, hoping to document the strange events occurring in their town. They disappeared that night and were never seen again. Now, on the 20th anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition.

The footage claiming to be from 1997 was shot on modern digital cameras in HD. To simulate the look of lo-fi analog footage, after the special effects were added in, the footage was copied to actual VHS tapes which were then re-digitized to finish editing. The analog defects are therefore real and not simulated. This had the added benefit of making the computer effects look more integrated with the original footage. (IMDB)

When a black-market arms deal goes outrageously wrong, Justine finds herself caught in the crossfire, forced to navigate through a warehouse full of trigger-happy madmen who are all hanging on for dear life.

No CGI was used in the scene where Sharlto Copley's character, Vernon, was being lit on fire. The actor performed the stunt himself with the protection of a fire-retardant suit and four men with fire extinguishers on standby. (IMDB)
