Innocent Voices (2004) War/Drama

I shed tears. This was a heartbreaking realistic war drama about the Salvadorian civil war.

if you like epic war hardcore movie I heard about come and see or in french requiem pour un massacre and apparently it is something unique



Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy?
The Dirty Dozen (1967): 6/10


Outwardly entertaining enough, especially the explosive final sequence, but slighty lacking in the intelligence department.


Still miles better than Suicide Squad, which was made with a similar premise.



Lonely Hearts (2006): 8/10 Based on the true story of Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck who teamed up to prey on unsuspecting lonely people. In the late 40's/early 50's, Raymond, a predator, wooed many women through the "Lonely Hearts" ads in the newspaper. Martha Beck, also a psychopath, not only fueled Raymond's sinful ways but also taunted him to the next level. This pair was mentioned in another movie but I thought the script writer was just developing a subplot. Then, I found "Lonely Hearts" and realized it was more than a script gimmick.

The Searchers (1956)



I cannot believe this because I watched this movie about 5 years ago and I gave it
. I remember saying that I didn't even like it that much but I wanted to give it credit for what it did well. I've been saying ever since that I didn't care for it, but I didn't even remember it that correctly. I would say that the comedy and musical interludes took me out of the movie, but these are actually brief, sporadic, and in fact they add to the greatness of the movie. The very first thing that's noticeable is how the movie looks, and I wouldn't hesitate to say that this is one of the best looking movies I've ever seen. The score is brilliant. There are several excellent characters and performances led by John Wayne as Ethan. For the most part Ethan is an ahole, but it's a great character and Wayne is fantastic. The Searchers is dramatic, thrilling, and even horrific, and when he picks her up and says that thing to her, I just died right there, tears instantly streaming down my face. This is top 10 material for me I loved it that much. I may not have ever even tried it again if it weren't for the upcoming westerns countdown. Even with that, I wasn't planning on trying it again until CR talked about it in his thread.
Definitely a film that gets richer upon each viewing. I think I thought it was great when I first saw it, but remember enjoying it much much more on subsequent viewings. I think when I was younger I was eager to watch as much as I could and didn't always appreciate everything fully, which is understandable. It's a beautiful film, my favourite colour Ford and your comments make me want to watch it again as soon as possible

Louis C.K. Sincerely - 7/10
This was better on TV than seeing him live a few months ago, when the entire place was filled with loud drunks. My last public event for sure after having the same experience when I saw the great band America.

Professional horse shoe straightener


'Never Rarely Sometimes Always' (2020)

Director: Eliza Hittman

Sidney Flanigan is absolutely brilliant in this playing a troubled teen with a secret to keep. It's hyper-real at times. We can feel her pain. Some utterly heartbreaking scenes including one single take piece of quality cinema.

It's downbeat, sombre, melancholic and moody. And those are it's best qualities. The viewer is reminded of British cinema in the vein of Andrea Arnold and perhaps Cristian Mungiu's '4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days'. It's not over scripted, and it has a lovely washed out colour palette to ram home the "realness".

Anybody who likes troubled teens movies or ultra real stuff may want to take a look. It's one of the finest movies I've seen this year so far. Hittman has created a gem.

8.2/10







Necropolis (1986) - 1.5/10. Of all the garbage I have seen during the lockdown, this has to be the worst. Can't even call it a B grade movie. C grade is more like it. Bad acting. Mindless plot. Probably heavily edited, the one I saw. And the crappy dancing in front of the devil. Yikes.
