Drive references the fable of The Scorpion and the Frog: the frog agrees to carry the scorpion across the river; the scorpion stings the frog, saying “it’s my nature” and both drown. Driver can be seen as The Frog of the story - he drives/carries criminals (scorpions) around in his car, but is inevitably dragged into their destructive world (stung) leading to everybody’s downfall. Driver’s jacket has a scorpion on the back, just as the frog carried the scorpion on its back.

Snowpiercer … (8/10)

Every year, there are a small number of films released that sooner or later are hailed as cinematic triumphs. Bong Joon-ho’s action-packed art-house sci-fi thriller is one of a few from this year. Not only is it a triumph for successfully making its way to audiences untouched by anxious, nit-picking studio heads, but a triumph in terms of storytelling, execution, and pure vision. ‘Snowpiercer’ is one of the most audacious and most fully realized films ever to have graced the screen in some time. Beginning the picture as a commentary on class struggle, Bong skillfully, poetically, and quite literally takes viewers from door to door to something much more surprising, and perhaps a little unsettling. Revealing one notion after another as the protagonist (played wonderfully by Chris Evans) fights his way forward to the front of the ark-like locomotive, Bong’s film unveils itself as a thoughtful meditation on balance and order in the human world. It’s hard not to go on about Bong’s clever themes without spoiling much of the film, but there is something that musn’t go unmentioned. The themes here, as well as the film in and of itself, encourage the viewers to look around them as opposed to just forward and backward. This film is without a doubt the perfect metaphor for such an idea, as many other films like ‘Snowpiercer’ are often overlooked in favor of an increasingly long line of conventional Hollywood blockbusters. Though it’ll take years for this film to win the praise it deserves, there’s no denying the stellar craft and creativity displayed in such outstanding fashion upon initial viewing. A well-rounded cast, slick action sequences, and striking cinematography, all bolstered by Bong’s smart direction, make ‘Snowpiercer’ one of this year’s best films.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 … (6/10)

Really? You’d think that Sony would know better after what caused Sam Raimi’s series to end so unfortunately. It’s a shame, but also no surprise, to see a promising franchise reboot grow so tiresome after one lousy sequel. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ wasn’t the fresh do-over everyone expected, yet it seemed to signal the coming of new and exciting possibilities and storylines for everyone’s favorite web-slinger. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ sadly suffers from a case of ‘Spider-Man 3’, taking some huge steps back into familiar territory and mixing together too many subplots and characters that jumble the narrative into a web too convoluted to weave through. Simply put, this film makes Raimi’s final “Spidey” entry look magnificent. Everything just derails into a visual effect orgy that, although eye-popping at times, fails to give the film any true sense of excitement. Some of the action sequences and stylized shots of Spider-Man swinging his way through NYC are undoubtedly cool to look at, and are probably the only things this film has going for it. Aside from the film’s crazy disasters, director Marc Webb still manages to wring out some genuine performances from his actors, even though their characters are so terribly underwritten. The chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is still cute, though at times it seems to get a little too sappy for a superhero flick. Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan, both fine actors in their own right, try their best to do more than just exude evil qualities seen in nearly every other superhero film. The team effort between cast and crew is commendable, as new things are tried here and there, but they ultimately succumb to the usual blockbuster antics. Probably the most disappointing antic here is the predictable set-up for the next film, which in this case happens to be a spin-off. Well, spin-off or sequel, it doesn’t make this franchise any different from most others. Devoid of any real inspiration and innovation, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ goes little beyond its admittedly impressive visual effects and stylized action sequences.
