James Mangold, 2019


I liked the story actually, it wasn't boring, the movie didn't seemed very long because I had the remote in my hand, also liked how they managed to show Ken Miles, anyway, it had one great actor and nothing else with him, the same old, same old. The racing looks like a video game, not to mention how unrealistic they've made it, breaking doing corners, doesn't work like that, up-shifting, downshifting, everything smells of Hollywood. Caricature of Italians, the bad guy, good guy, real Hollywood.



Deadshot - Action thriller with Iko Uwaiss. Not as good as the Raid but fairly good anyway.

War - Highly stylized action adventure from Bollywood which i enjoyed a lot. Had some great action scenes, lovely locations and lots of nods in the film to other action films like Face Off and such.



Star Wars the Force Awakens (2015) 3/5 Fun entertainment, impressive smorgasbord of visual effects, and fantastic cinematography.


Still, it seems to be a hyperbolic version of "A New Hope." Two items that made me wince: 1. Millennium Falcon is portrayed as a multipurpose tool of diverse capabilities - spaceship capable of hyper-light speed, bulldozer/snow blower, forestry log splitter (all without a scratch) 2. Rey 's no-notice command of the Force is miraculous. She makes Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker look like incredibly slow learners.



Maybe I misread, but my point is that I don't think it was an excellent movie.
Dark and creepy is OK Gideon, pretentious and up it's own fundament is another!





Amusing re-watch.

Amusing re-watch.

I LOVE this movie...i was pretty sure I was the only person on the planet who had ever seen it. It's on my list of favorite Lemmon performances and my list of favorite guilty pleasures.

Dark Waters (2019)



Good and gripping true tale about a fight against the chemical giant DuPonts knowing use of carcinogenic material.

Ruffalo is exceptional. And is ably supported with a great cast.

The Night Listener (2006)



I taped this off of Film 4 with only the idea that I had never heard of it and Robin Williams was in it. Interesting thriller with RW playing a radio DJ that strikes up a long distance relationship with a young lad who has had a terrible past (and present). The Gabriel character is going through some life changes too, so on the suspicions of his friends and family, starts to dig a bit deeper. Not all is as it seems. I found this an effective low-key thriller that wasn't showy at all and concentrated on character (particularly Gabriel).




Can't Come Out to Play/The Harvest (2013)


Effective little early evening thriller/horror....great cast and the youths hook up quite well. Predictable in the big "tell" but around that a meaningful storyline. First McNaughton film I've seen since "Henry".
