When it comes to some of my more beloved action movies, a lot of detractors will say of them "Oh but it has such a bad plot", I respectfully disagree. I would argue they have **simple** plots, but that doesn't inherently mean **bad**. _Triple Threat's_ plot however, is bad. But there's not a crap fight in it from start to finish, and it's one of the better movies that I have absolutely **zero** intention of ever revisiting that I've seen recently.
Absolutely loved it - a "small" but great movie, and best proof that you don't need a big budget to keep an audience glued to the screen and at the edge of their seats. It's basically a room, a man and a telephone, and still manages to tell an intense story (and with a twist). Grim, but still has a few fun moments of relief. Fantastic performance by Jakob Cedergren, who also turned out to be a really nice guy (saw it Zurich Film Festival, and there was a Q&A with ...
I Kill Giants
The CGI beasties were pretty cool to behold, unfortunately they were a pretty minute part of this movie, which is absolutely not what it was marketed to be. Now I've got no problem with a movie subverting expectations, but _I Kill Giants_ didn't offer up enough within its alternatives to come away with a whole-hearted recommendation from me. What it does have is intermitantly interesting, and although I was a little disappointed, it was very far from the worst film I've seen all year.
A french dance troupe, staying for a long weekend in some sort of school building, decide to party after rehearsal, while a wintry blizzard rages outside. Someone spikes the punch, and all hell breaks loose.
The dance scenes are engaging, the visuals hypnotic, the performances are somehow real and completely over the top, and the chaos and carnage intense and memorable. Long, drawn out tracking shots, one of which lasts for 40+ minutes, follow ...
Hold the Dark
***Unpredictable bleak Alaskan adventure, mystery, thriller***
An author and wolf expert (Jeffrey Wright) arrives at a remote village in Alaska to help rid the town of a wolf problem that has resulted in a few dead children. Riley Keough plays the troubled mother and Alexander Skarsgård her taciturn husband coming home from Iraq. James Badge Dale appears as the local sheriff while Julian Black Antelope is on hand as a curious AmerIndian named Cheeon.
Reign of the Supermen
The voice cast is solid, and _Reign of the Supermen_ works well as a sequel to last year's _The Death of Superman_, but it is not one of the various DC Animated universes' truly great entries. At least it wasn't another re-do of a story they've already done.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
FilmGator A private user reviewed The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society
High quality period piece although the book is supposed to be even better. I haven't read the book so maybe you will want to do that first. Back to the movie. The cast is superb and the story is compelling. What more do you need? The story has great characters, and the the cast brings out all their emotional interests. The story unfolds in a series of flashbacks as several characters are unwilling to share what happened during the German occupation with intrepid writer Juliet ...
Spectacularly well made, and even weirdly kind of relatable in parts, _Blindspotting_ may not come away being my favourite movie of the year or anything, but it's the sort of one that I would absolutely not be mad about taking home the big awards. Absolutely felt these characters.
The only movie in **literally** as long as I can remember, that actually gave me nightmares.
I'll Drink To This
Leaps and bounds ahead of the above average, but unimpressive John Wick 2, Parabellum delivers on all levels. The subtle nods to action films (I won't spill the beans) that came years before this one. The casting of seasoned action dynamo's ( Cecep Arif Rahman and Yayan Ruhian) from The Raid and The Raid Redemption. And getting Mark Dacascos and Tiger Hu Chen in on the fun? Shit, I'll take that all damn day. By the way, pretty sure Keanu and Halle drink from the same ...
I absolutely, totally, completely, 100% understand why people don't like _Terminal_, that makes perfect sense to me. It was basically made for me and even I'm pretty mixed on it. But what I don't get is the number of people throwing out half star reviews. That's literally the lowest possible rating, I just don't see how _Terminal_ is a tie for world's worst movie. My expectations were pretty middling, and they were just more or less reached.
The Wandering Earth
I just watched this on Netflix. I did not have any expectations going into it. It was not very good, unfortunately.
Main reasons were that 8t was over-the-top from start to finish. Epic scene after epic scene without much supporting context. I think it can work in some cases but I dknt think it did here. You barely get a feel for the main characters, let alone the 20 supporting cast members, in this 2 ...
Los Angeles of 2028 is a riot laden area where Martial Law is the norm and brutality is a way of life. Amidst this setting, the Hotel Artemis is open for business.. The Artemis is not your typical hotel as it provides emergency medical services to members who engage in criminal activities.
The Nurse (Jodie Foster) runs the facility and with the help of her massive Orderly Everest (Dave Bautista), they ensure that only members ...
Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell
I will always give a _Tremors_ movie a chance, but these last two movies have been very disappointing, and _Cold Day in Hell_ made me feel especially let down. Could not deliver on even its own incredibly weak promise of "Graboids but there's snow now".
_Final rating:★½: - Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
This is a bit of a strange movie. Part of it feels like a pretty good, dark and gritty thriller, part of it feels like a wannabe Tarantino movie and part of it feels like a comedy. Overall I would classify it as a B-movie but a pretty good B-movie. As strange as the movie is I have to say that I liked it ...
Little bit Home Invasion, little bit Western, little bit _Die Hard_. _Braven_ sees Momoa in the titular role (maybe prepping for his upcoming role as Draven?) of this throwback action thriller, which is always a good place to start any movie. While not exactly groundbreaking, _Braven_ was more enjoyable than I had suspected it might be. The sort of thing that'd definitely be worthwhile on Netflix or matinée ...
Bit of an odd one, good odd. The sort of thing that'd usually earn all of its points out of pure catharsis, but is to confronting to be any way actually cathartic, and hits the message over and over again instead, which normally I hate, but _Assassination Nation_ works because of the hate. It's a very hateful movie, with just a sliver of what you might have expected it would be like based on the trailer right at the very end, but otherwise, grim.

First of all, you can read my review of one of my favorite movies of 2017, Jordan Peele‘s Get Out by clicking its title. One of the best feature-long debuts of all-time by a writer-director who I wish he discovered his filmmaker skills sooner because the horror genre urgently needed someone like him. Peele is starting to become one of Hollywood’s most notable ...
I had a pretty great time with _Tag_. Maybe that's because I went to a nice theatre (which I haven't done in a while) and saw it with a couple of close friends on a very nice day, but I rather think that it's primarily because of Jeremy Renner's character. The way he's written, acted, and shot, are all pretty much flawless. Off the strength of him alone, I could probably send you out to see _Tag_, but there is a Hell of a lot else to appreciate about it too ...
**_I really wanted to hate it!_**
> _When I placed my head on my pillow, I did not sleep, nor could I be said to think. My imagination, unbidden, possessed and guided me, gifting the successive images that arose in my mind with a vividness far beyond the usual bounds of reverie. I saw - with shut eyes, but acute mental vision, - I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then ...
If I had've known in advance that _American Animals_ was going to be a True Crime Doco that was 95% re-enactment, I probably wouldn't have watched it. Because that sounds like everything I hate about American television. Glad I didn't though, because that meant I did watch it, and _American Animals_ is actually quite good.
_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
