I just saw _Branded_ and came here to IMDb and was shocked at all of the negative reviews. Other reviews go into the plot and so forth, so I won't do that here. I guess I can understand some of the criticism: the pacing in _Branded_ is uneven, at times a bit slow, which probably doesn't sit well with contemporary movie audiences who want 90+ minutes of non-stop action. But if you can appreciate the pacing involved in telling a good story think Kubrick or Lynch , then I think you'll appreciate _Branded_.I think this movie will become a cult classic ala _Liquid Sky_, _Repo Man_, or <more>
_Idiocracy_ - it is that rarest of things, a film with an original tale that is well-told. I've not seen a trailer for the film, but I get the idea that the trailer does not accurately reflect the movie itself, which may lead some to disappointment. But if you watch _Branded_ with an open mind and just open yourself up to the story, I think you'll find it a memorable and enjoyable experience. I fancy myself to be something of a connoisseur of quirky science fiction and fantasy movies, and I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
Hmm, why all the bad reviews? This is a rare story told well and should be appreciated as such (by JackHoffe)
It seems that a lot of people are threatened by simple truths in this film. Fat people don't want to be told that their food choices are being influenced by advertising. The negative ratings come from the mirror held in front of the faces of the audience, the negativity is a reflection of the shame of being overweight or the reflection of their own brands that they are wearing and the value they put in them.This is an original film that doesn't fit the current Hollywood blockbuster mold, but rather it requires self-examination of what influences human choices.There are a lot of word <more>
salad reviews on this movie already, no need for another. Go in with no expectations, come out with a cleaner view of the world and start to understand why you're craving your McDonalds/Coke/Idevice.Check it out and be pleasantly rewarded - unless your own reflection reflects something too unpleasant to accept....
I didn't expect much of the movie, seemed like one of those film festival pieces of crap. But it really wasn't. Yes there is a certain amount of artsy-fartsy stuff put in there but that fits quite nicely.I actually watched the whole movie. To me that says something. These days most of what's new isn't or great concepts are horribly executed and Hollywood is only remaking stuff lately . Because of that I often find myself trying to do something else while the movie is still going. That didn't happen this time.I also kinda hope this movie serves as a bit of an eyeopener, <more>
there are places where advertising is actually banned or at least from public places mainly the streets. Makes you feel peaceful being or even seeing such a place especially if you are used to be bombarded with all sorts of advertisements all day and everywhere.BTW: I didn't even have subs for the Russian parts, still very watchable. BTW: Leelee Sobieski, doesn't she look a lot look Helen Hunt but younger !?
We arrived too late for the movie that we intended to see, so we went to see this one instead. Knew nothing about it. My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a bit of everything in it, that kept us both engaged throughout. The movie was visually rich. At first when the visuals of the brands appeared, it was a little confusing and the organisms were a little weird to look at, but over time you began to see what the filmmaker was doing to build the understanding of what Misha saw.All in all, I thought it was well-done and gave us both a lot to think and talk about afterward. I recommend <more>
Great Take on Today's Advertising/Marketing World Video Review (by Urgo)
My review is in video form: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v Q008KYbIJIYHere is a summary: Friday night I saw a really good movie called Branded. The trailers at least as I remembered them didn't come close to capturing what the movie was really about so I figured I'd discuss it a bit with you. If you do want to see this you might not want to watch this until afterwords as I do give spoilers... including in the following lines of text.Basically the movie was the story of a marketer as he progressed through his life. We saw how at a young age he had the talent which brought him up to <more>
be a award winning in his field and then we also saw sort of a retired legend marketer playing behind the scenes against him. The main story was almost like inception where in order to make your brand win the fast food industry in this scenario you have to make the alternative being healthy scare you that you'll die if you go that route so you have no choice but to go the way the marketer wants you to.We watch that story play out and then it really gets good with some bad cgi where advertising has gotten so far out of hand that its an all out brand warfare where brands are attacking each other quite literally and companies are going bankrupt left and right. This really struck a cord with me due to all the patent crap that is going on these days, most notably between Samsung and Apple.I highly recommend checking this movie out if its playing near you. It's not your standard movie but not a standard documentary either. Sort of a mix of both. I really enjoyed it.
Don't be fooled by the advertising for this film about advertising (by LBSRmcr)
This movie is best seen with an open mind and no expectations. I watched it solely based on the poster for it, not knowing anything about it. In fact the movie might be better understood if you consider its alternative title "the Mad Cow"- which makes it clear that this movie is about the principles behind advertising. If you come to see a sci-fi film or the such, this is definitely not it. Instead it is a film about the conscience and journey of a marketing genius and the world he and those he work for create. It is set in a not so distant future in Russia- where fast food have <more>
decided to implement a strategy to drive market sales by redefining beauty. But as in real life the matter of swaying public opinion is a complex one- and the main character finds himself as being used as a pawn in just this strategy. But it doesn't end there. He has a sort of spiritual awakening which leads him to fight marketing from within. The tone for the special effects is set in the opening sequence of the stars coming to life and him being struck by lightning in the street. These elements of the fantastic start to play a stronger role in the second half of the film after Misha the main characters spiritual awakening allow him to see the brands and the way they affect people as creatures and shapes. In this way it reminded me a lot of Pan's Labyrinth where the inner workings of war are reflected in the fantastical situations and creatures. I can't say that the acting was bad- I found it quite engrossing! The plot holes that were mentioned beforehand i didn't perceive as such- nor the seemingly coincidental events that unfold- in fact to me that felt like a subplot where most of the film i thought that the main female character was actually part of a devious marketing plan...that in itself is very clever. To me that was an effective device of illustrating a point rather than telling it- instead of being told "marketing creates suspicion" it actually created suspicion in me, the viewer. Point made. Bravo. In short: a visually stunning allegory and insight into the madness of advertising. Enjoy!
This is a great little movie that has a very relevant message about what we put in and on our bodies. Hopefully it will make people more aware, but honestly I doubt the ignorant masses will watch this movie. Judging from the low ratings on IMDb, I can officially call the movie "BRANDED" highly underrated, and a must see film for anyone who wants even a glimpse of responsibility for what we put in and on our bodies that leads to so much disease, war and suffering.A unique perspective, full of detail, a hero's journey to find substance in a world gone mad.Great imagery, dystopian <more>
atmosphere and what the world is like that most walk through simply unaware, and not wanting to care.
Excellent. Many stories rolled into one. (by hendricks-jon)
It's several kinds of stories layered on top of each other including love story, spy story, critique of consumer culture, mystery, schizophrenic story, with an ending that is a bit magical realist. Keeps you wondering and guessing throughout. Great characters and story-telling draw you in and you care about them. Definitely worth seeing. I went into this film with no preconceptions other than a sci-fi take on consumer culture. Found the film very enjoyable and well told. Setting the film in post-Soviet Russia with an onslaught of American consumer capitalism was a nice angle to the <more>
"genre" of consumerism critique films. Frankly, I don't think the director quite knew what genre of the film it was but that's okay. Was a very fun ride.
This film is a hard one to rate and that is because, as a cinematic artwork, it is close to perfect, yet the little flaws are nagging and quite annoying. Let me summarize it like this: if you have seen Brazil and loved it, then you will probably like this film as well. Kind of difficult to explain if you haven't seen it, though : Let me start as a good neurotic does, with the bad parts. One of them is the narrator. The film did not need one. I agree that it probably would have taken a lot more effort to convey the same succinct message, but then that's the job of a film maker. The <more>
second big issue I had with the film was the trailer. It makes you believe that the film is some sort of sci-fi What Dreams May Come, with a touch of Matrix. Instead, it is a deeply philosophical film with some special effects added as an afterthought.But all that bad must be overshadowed by the good: good acting, good direction, a really ingenious way of looking at the present world and creating an original script, good music, even good special effects. It is a film that is violently against advertising and rightly so if you ask me. It presents the personal campaign of one man to eradicate the lies and false hopes and evil that have become "the brands".Now, the result of his actions and the ending of the film are clearly too optimistic, but then again it is all about the path taken rather than the destination. I also loved the US and Russian collaboration in making this film. All in all I would rate it above average, with the possibility of become a cult movie for one reason only: you rarely see one like this. However, the two bad things I enumerated above were really important for me so I can't rate it more.
