DETROIT




I didn't want to see this film for a number of reasons.I have grown weary of seeing African Americans oppressed in film's.I heard from a number of people that this would be a watered down version of the nightmarish event that took place at the Algiers Motel incident during Detroit's 1967 12th Street Riot.
After listening to the accounts of several people that were present at the hotel,and their cooperation with the film's writer Mark Boal and Director Kathryn Bigelow,i had a change of heart.

This film stirred my soul,making me angry and sad at the same time.
The film plays out in 3 acts.The riots,the horrible hotel event,the the procedural trial.
Each contained such raw emotion it was overwhelming at times for myself and the audience i watched the film with.
High praise to all of the actors:John Boyega as Melvin Dismukes,Will Poulter as Philip Krauss,Algee Smith as Larry Reed,Jacob Latimore as Fred Temple,Jason Mitchell as Carl Cooper,Hannah Murray as Julie Ann,Kaitlyn Dever as Karen,Jack Reynor as Demens,Ben O'Toole as Flynn
The cowardice,the hate,and stupidity that lead to torture and death,not only rocked me emotionally as Bigelow immersed me in the scenes but i kept saying to myself :if only someone had the guts to do what was right,had not failed to be human,if people had handed down tougher punishments to certain officers,no one at the Algiers would have been beaten,berated,or murdered.

The film gives us the aftermath through Larry Reed who was completely broken by the events,and i think his story was the most haunting

My only problems with the film was the opening sequence which i felt was just thrown together and in the third act i did start to feel the films 2 hour and 23 minute run time.

Detroit is a movie that deserves to be seen.It really is a story that has been lost and i suggest that people seek out several documentaries about Algiers Motel incident during Detroit's 1967 12th Street Riot.
The film will definitely remain in my heart and soul but it's also one that i dont think i can watch again,because it's truly that disturbing.

Scale of 1-10 a 9

ATOMIC BLONDE



The plot for AB is mainly old hat spy stuff and hey it does take place in 1989.The film rests upon Charlize Theron's capable strong shoulders as Lorraine Broughton, a top-level MI6 field agent.
James McAvoy also does well as David Percival, an eccentric Berlin station chief who becomes an ally of Broughton
The action sequences are great some standing out more than others.
Some predictable turns and the pacing of the film connected to to many endings made the film lose points with me
Still a cool romp.

Scale of 1-10 a 7

THE DARK TOWER



Stephen King's epic novel series The Dark Tower has basically been condensed into a patchwork quilt in the film version
The story played out in a jumbled and rushed way to me.I did become kind of immersed in Jake Chambers story as he has visions of The Dark Tower which hulds the multi verse together,Roland Deschain The lone last of the Gunslingers,and Walter o'Dim, the Man in Black.
Idris Elba did his best with what he was given as Deschain.Tom Taylor was the most effective as Chamber's
I did enjoy some of the SFX and action sequences
Matthew McConaughey lazily portrays Walter o'Dim, the Man in Black as one of those lame TV or B flick characters,that walks around saying a line or two of threats before he offs you quickly
If you are a fan of the books or graphic novels skip this flick because it's a very basic fantasy action film forr the most part.

Scale of 1-10 a 6


KIDNAP




There are great abduction movies (Ransom and Breakdown) and then you have Kidnap.
It has that generic,paint by numbers vibe to it.No real suspense IMO,though the kid in peril thing worked for me a few times.This type of movie may have worked 20 years ago,but it forced me to believe that people are just blind to or dont care about whats going on around them.
Since the trailer for this flick gave away to much I was eager to see how Halle Berry was going to track down the abductors.After viewing it
I believe the rumor that Kidnap has been sitting on a shelf for 4 years
Scale of 1-10 a 4



THE EMOJI MOVIE



Started off semi funny and i enjoyed some of the references to well known apps and websites,but after awhile it started to feel like an 80 minute advertisement for apps.The characters became grating and obnoxious so much so i was glad some of them vanished for 15 minutes.This flick feels like a quick cash grab with low grade animation

Scale of 1-10 a 3

Battle of Neretva (1969)



In early 1943 and on Hitler's direct orders, the Wehrmacht and its allies, the Italians, the Croatian Ustashe and the Serbian Chetniks are supposed to destroy the Communist Yugoslav Partisans in the Operation Weiss. The Partisans and 4500 of their wounded and sick are surrounded in the Neretva Valley (present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina) but under no circumstances are they to leave the wounded behind. There's only one bridge left where the Partisans could cross the Neretva river and this is where the Germans and their fascist allies expect them. But the Partisans blow up the bridge and leave their enemies in confusion. General Lohring (based on Alexander Löhr, the actual commander of the operation during WWII) is convinced that the Partisans are trying to escape to the north into Bosnia, so while he's concentrating his troops on the path to Bosnia, he doesn't realize that he was tricked by the Partisans.


Battle of Neretva is based on events that really occured during World War II. While most of the performers are Yugoslavs, it has an international cast: Yul Brynner as the Partisan Vlado; Orson Welles as a Chetnik senator, representing the Serbian king in exile; Franco Nero as the Italian officer Michele Riva who decides to join the Partisans. German actor Curd Jürgens plays General Lohring; Hardy Krüger is Colonel Kranzer; Sergei Bondarchuk is Martin, a Partisan commander. Scottish actor Anthony Dawson was cast as the Italian general Morelli. Most of the other leading Partisans were portrayed by Yugoslav actors Bata Zivojinovic, Ljubisa Samardzic, Sylva Koscina and Boris Dvornik.

The first poster you can see above was created by Pablo Picasso who didn't ask to be paid. He wanted a case of the best Yugoslav wine instead.

8213: Gacy House (2010)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1667418/


A team of paranormal investigators looking at famous serial killers set up shop in the house of John Wayne Gacy to see if there is anything spooky going on

Er, his house was demolished years ago
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=al43aP5-J7w

It's from The Asylum but I normally expect a bit better from them, still that and factual events aside it's the usual found footage nonsense and will pass an unchallenging hour or so

The Prowler (1951)



Trailer

Susan Gilvray (Evelyn Keyes) spots a prowler outside her window and calls the police. Officers Webb Garwood (Van Heflin) and Bud Crocker (John Maxwell) arrive at the scene but can't find a trace of the prowler. One of the cops, the disgruntled Garwood, is attracted to Susan but she's married to a middle-aged radio host. When Garwood returns to her house under the pretext of checking if she's alright, she invites him to stay for a coffee and Webb learns more about her marriage than he should. Although she's not impressed by him, Susan's loneliness takes hold of her and the two start an affair. When her husband begins to suspect that she may be unfaithful, Webb plots a scheme to get rid of him.

This is an underrated film noir classic. It was directed by Joseph Losey and written by Dalton Trumbo, both blacklisted by the movie studios. Losey fled to Europe the very same year.

Battle of Sutjeska (1973)



During the "Fifth Offensive", the Yugoslav Partisans led by Marshal Tito (Richard Burton) are trying to reach the Sutjeska region in east Bosnia. They are surrounded by German and Italian forces who are bombing the Partisans with everything they have. Despite being outnumbered by a vastly superior enemy, the Partisans don't give up and earn the utmost admiration of a British military mission sent to Tito. Although they manage to reach Sutjeska, the Partisans do not celebrate due to huge losses but surrender is out of the question.

Another Partisan film from Yugoslavia but not as good as its predecessor Battle of Neretva. Many of the Yugoslav actors seen in the previous film are back on board, though in different roles. I'm not familiar with the exact reasons but Richard Burton was hired to play Josip Broz Tito, the great Yugoslav leader who led the Partisans to victory against the Nazis and their allies in Yugoslavia. The soundtrack was written by legendary Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis.

Default Rogue One

*spoilers spoilers spoilers*



'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story', although a better title would have been 'Rogue One: A Load of Bollocks'.

Considering the excellent job they did casting the new young actors for 'The Force Awakens', I was very surprised by how thoroughly bland and lacking in charisma all the young 'uns were in this one. The main lass in particular (don't know her name), was so uninteresting that they could have replaced her with a box of washing powder halfway through and I don't think I would have noticed - although I did notice at one point that she has a spectacular arse, so there is that.

Then there's the established actors, like the brilliant Forrest Whittaker, but just as it looks like he might be warming up to turn in a Forest-Whittaker-y performance somewhere between Obi-Wan Kenobi and the daft character he played in Battlefield Earth, this movie stupidly kills him off before we have a chance to even care who he is. Ditto Le Chiffre from Casino Royale, who is taking a break from walloping James Bond's goolies to help build the Death Star, but he's ultimately wasted too. And there's that fantastically sleazy Australian guy, Ben something or other, who is his fantastically sleazy self as the sneering imperial blackguard. I also noticed a cameo by Chief Inspector Grobbelaar from an episode of 'Bottom', which was weird.

Some of the effects are great in the climatic battle, but not so the CGI'ing of Peter Cushing and young Carrie Fisher. They look okay when they're static, but as soon as they move, you immediately see they're just a cartoon face.

The story is a bit daft, and I'm pretty sure uses a plot device so hackneyed that the Simpsons parodied it more than 20 years ago. All the major characters die, and you don't care, because firstly you know they're going to have to die because they're not in Episode 4, and secondly because with the exception of sleazy Ben, they're all duller than crap on a stick. There's also a surprisingly underwhelming cameo by Darth Vader. All in all, the movie is a load of wank.

Battledogs (2013)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2457138/


The opening scene is in JFK airport NY as an aircraft lands and a sick looking female passenger starts to experience sensory overload, she heads to a toilet cubicle and removes a bandage revealing a bite woundm, she starts frothing at the mouth and within seconds she has turned into a werewolf. Soon she is ripping through the waiting passengers but she is not alone for long as you know what happens when a werewolf bites you
Damn wouldn't you know it those freaky US military gung-ho type goons are involved in weaponising this virus

Candyman (1992)



Trailer


Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) is a graduate student at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She's writing a thesis with her co-student and friend Bernadette Walsh (Kasi Lemmons) about urban myths and legends. One of them is the legend of Candyman (Tony Todd), a murderous soul who can be summoned when his name is said five times in front of a mirror. Of course, Helen and her colleague don't believe in this rubbish but the residents of the Cabrini-Green housing project are running scared when they hear about Candyman. But when Helen begins to spread rumors about the legend being just a figment, Candyman decides to prove her wrong.

A decent horror flick with good performances. Recommended if you can endure the awful soundtrack by Philip Glass.

Default Dogs of War



I had recently re-read the novel it was based on during a flight back from Tokyo for work because it had came up as a recommendation on my Kindle app. I had forgotten how different the Frederick Forsyth novel was from the movie. I was messing around this morning and decided to pull out the movie just to spot the differences. Still a great movie and one of my all time favorite Christopher Walken movies.
