I watched 10 movies last week! crazy huh? It was actually really difficult for me to choose my favourite movie because it was a pretty good week of watching.
Films watched last week (week 5) and star ratings (out of 5):
- Just go with it ★★
- Inglourious Basterds ★★★★
- Rio ★★
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules ★★★
- Django ★★★★
- Wet, Hot American Summer ★★
- End of Watch ★★★★
- Boyz N the Hood ★★★★
- On the Road ★★★★
- The Missing ★★★
So as you can see, quite a few 4 star ratings, but it was END OF WATCH that won it for me. It was more of a emotional attachment that lead me to choose this film. END OF WATCH just engaged me from start to finish. It was a whole movie, it felt complete. The script was incredible and the choice to do it in a documentary style suited perfectly. David Ayer (writer/director) created a world where the characters can feel the fine line between contentment and fear.
I am now pretty keen to finally see Training Day, another LA set street crime movie also written by Ayer.
So! This is what I came up with:
The first image is what I came up with in Adobe Illustrator using the pen tool to create Vector shapes and the gradients tool in the text. I then applied 2 different effects using the retrolux tool in the Ipad app Snapseed to create the following two images.
I couldn’t decide so I just put up all three!!
NEXT WEEK I’ll be Illustrating Warm Bodies. Stay Tuned!
