A Plesant Find
The Survivalist is a British post-apocalyptic film that focuses on a lack of food instead of zombies. This movie is not going to be for everyone. The pacing is slow and deliberate in parts and there is many times where The Survivalist is missing dialogue. However, there is a method to all of this. Bleak, intense, scary and certainly not for the average movie goer, The Survivalist is worth the price of admission.
I don't know what all the naysayers are harping about. Captain Marvel keeps the MCU streak going as upper tier popcorn entertainment. Brie Larsen does a great job at showing she can kick tail with the best of the boys and Sam L. is a G as always. I feel its some kind of sexist even to compare it to Wonder Woman because they have nothing in common outside of being comic based and having female protagonists but if I have to, then I'll say Captain Marvel ...
Whew! Talk about a tale of two movies! The first half of Lake Bodom is an absolute disaster. We follow the four main characters, four "teens", two male and two female as they journey to an isolated lake for different reasons. The girls Ida and Nora think they are going to a party. One of the guys Elias wants to hook up with Ida and the other Atte has a grand master plan to reconstruct a decades old unsolved murder near the lake in an effort ...
Gritty tale of a cop (Burt Reynolds) demoted to the vice squad in Atlanta after a bust goes awry.
I don't know how this has never came across my radar before. I learned of Sharky's Machine reading an obit for Reynolds. Doing some background on the film, I learned that this was Burt's answer to the Dirty Harry series after he felt Eastwood crossed into his territory with Every Which Way But Loose ...
Review from the comment
I must admit that when I heard who was behind this return to my beloved Halloween franchise, I had an eyebrow cocked. Danny McBride, known for a career of goofball comedic relief and David Gordon Green, a director who has had some good stuff but nothing I have seen that was anything like a slasher. In all honesty, I expected bad things.
But while nowhere near perfect, this direct sequel to the original is a pretty fun ride for fans of the series. The first half pretty much pays ...
Let me start off by addressing the elephant locked in the basement: Some of the dialogue in this movie is cliché in the absolute worst possible way. The. Worst.
But that aside, _Delirium_ really is not so bad as I had feared.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Lundgren probably contributed about a day's worth of shooting to the very inappropriately named _Black Water_. JCVD, occupying the other space on the cover, is actually a lead role in the movie though, but he hasn't been in a good movie in **years** so that's doesn't bode particularly well. The real problems with _Black Water_ are less to do with the actors though (most of whom are, admittedly, bad) and more to do with the fact that that it doesn't offer a single thing that's original, or even an unoriginal thing ...
FilmGator A private user reviewed LEGO DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage Of Atlantis (2018)
LEGO DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage Of Atlantis
Well it was certainly no worse than _Justice League_. Let's hope it is worse than the other _Aquaman_ movie coming out this year though.
It's bad, but having a definitive lead character, and the rest of the heroes as a supporting cast is working better than the ones where they try to make everyone share the spotlight equally ...
7 Days in Entebbe
Entebbe is a subject I have been interested in from an early age, having seen all three of the previous movies made on the subject (Operation Thunderbolt, Victory at Entebbe and the best, Raid on Entebbe in 1976) but I also did decided to undertake factual research into the raid some time before this film was ever embarked upon ...
I can't elevate _Eighth Grade_ to the status that my peers have, it just wasn't all that to me. But it was still very good, and very real, that tangible sort of youth that comes with dedication to the format.
_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Mad props to Melissa McCarthy for turning it around with this after _Happytime Murders_ and _Life of the Party_. Actually after basically every single thing I've seen her in up until this point. I honestly can't think of a single role I've liked her in. Until Lee Israel of course, because as her, in this, McCarthy is great.
Respect for Richard E. Grant in the supporting role as well.
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman wrote and directed this tear-jerking rom-dram, which looks eerily familiar to the NBC series, give or take a couple A-list cast members (Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Annette Bening, Mandy Patinkin, Antonio Banderas … breathe). Like Us, the film pulses between the characters’ mysteriously interconnected narratives, which are set between N.Y.C. and Spain
Sorry to Bother You
_Sorry To Bother You is “unapollogetic”, “unafraid”, “imaginative”._
These are the reviews of audiences, and critics; it’s hard to find someone that didn’t like this movie (unless you’re going to burrow through the Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews, in which case I’m sorry.)
The cast is packed with familiar faces: Lakeith Stanfield (as Cassius) who also happened to be in _Get Out_, Jermaine Fowler who had just finished work on CBS’ _Superior Donuts_, Danny Glover ...
I'm really glad that I didn't read the blurb for _10x10_, because the mystery of the dynamic between the two leads is what kept me invested. Having now read it, I think it might have ruined me if I had known what was happening going in. Although if you have read it yourself, _10x10_ might still be worth seeing for the climax, it's not strong enough to truly recommend ...
Bad Times at the El Royale
_Bad Times At The El Royale_ was exceptional. Through its preview period, I was hooked from the teaser trailer to the 24th TV Spot released. Drew Goddard knew how to make a wonderous and exciting thriller through its magnificent casting and so much more. All these trailers set high expectations which made me worry a little bit as I don’t like getting myself too excited for movies because sometimes, I get very disappointed. But with this, it exceeded my high expectations. _Bad Times At The El Royale_ just crushed it and ...
Yet another anticipated film from an actor-turned-director is Boy Erased, the work of Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton, who wrote and stars in the film.
The flick follows the recently outed son of a Baptist preacher, Jared (Lucas Hedges), after he’s forced to partake in the church’s gay conversion program. Based on the critically acclaimed memoir by Garrard Conley, Boy Erased features an all-star cast which, in addition to Hedges and Edgerton, boasts Oscar winners ...
Luca's "Suspiria" brought me no words.
The horror in this movie is not like anything else I've ever heard or seen. The sheer film in Luca's "Suspiria" is not like anything that is made by major movie studios such as Columbia, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Disney, and the like. Director Luca Guadagnino transitioning from the LGBTQ+ drama adaptation "Call Me By Your Name" — transitioning to the avant-garde, psychological study in his version of famed ...
Hot Summer Nights
There should be more films made that take place in the 90s. And they should all star Timothee Chalamet and Maika Monroe. They're electrifying in Hot Summer Nights. This film is a bit of a mess at first, tonally jarring, and feels like Scorsese/P.T.Anderson-lite at times. But if you're going to borrow, borrow from the greats. It has a great soundtrack and is surprisingly dark by the end, ending on a note both mysterious ...
I sorta don't mind movies that throw you in the deep end in terms of setting. No explanation, just "Werewolves and ghosts are real, deal with it, you wanna know how our werewolves and ghosts differ from somebody else's? Watch the damn movie, you'll figure it out". And that aspect of _Slice_ totally worked for me. But there was other things that didn't. Things like this playing out more like a couple of back-to-back episodes of a TV show than movie, a TV show we didn't get to watch the first ...
White Boy Rick
There is an another more compelling story behind White Boy Rick - the tale of the FBI's manipulation of a young witness, grimy Detroit cops, a dishonest mayor and over the top sentences for non-violent crimes.
Unfortunately, the motion picture concentrates more on the connections between a low-life single parent and his children, which is a significantly less captivating story. Much slower than anticipated.
