My Darth Star is in for a service
I felt about the same as you with 'You Were Never Really Here', and I'm glad to see someone enjoy 'Cure for Wellness' as much as I did. There was something about that movie that really stuck with me when I saw it in theathers....I need to try and watch it again soon.
It was just something completely different from my usual fare.
The quirkiness and awkward moments made it feel claustrophobic and in a few instances painful.
The cinematography created real atmosphere and foreboding for the viewer with some real moments of terror to make you cringe.

The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil 2019

Ma Dong Seok, Kim Moo Yul, Kim Sung Kyu




There's a serial killer knifing people to death, a cop who is the only one who thinks he is a serial killer and is determined to catch him and a crime boss who wants revenge after nearly becoming one of his victims...Oh and the cop wants the gangster in handcuffs too.
This South Korean movie was very enjoyable, violent yes, funny on occasions, action aplenty.
It is subtitled for those of us who don't speak Korean but don't let that put you off, just enjoy a watchable story which is based on a true event.

7.5/10

Hyena 2014

Peter Ferdinando, Stephen Graham, Neil Maskell



Bent cops, drug dealing Turks, people trafficking Albanians and two more cops looking for payback.
Violence, drug taking, murder and rape all rear their ugly heads in this British crime thriller.
Things spiral out of control for Mike (Ferdinando) as all hell breaks loose on his patch and he sees his ill gotten gains disappear.
There's more white powder in this than an explosion in a talcum packaging factory, more blood than the buffet at a vampires birthday party and a big, fat, hairy guy naked folding his pants...what more could you want in a movie?
Everything about this film is brutal from the very start.

Priest 2011

Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Maggie Q




After centuries of war between Humans and Vampires the Homo Sapiens have retreated behind the walls of a church controlled city, a grim and dystopian place where the Priests have been disbanded and their heroics during the war more or less forgotten.
One such Priest (Bettany) defies the head of the church and leaves to find his daughter who the vampires have captured.
Lead by a new breed of Vampire (Urban) they plan to rise again and rid Earth of the human race for good.

Priest is a Vampire movie that is a little different from the norm.
The action sequences are excellent and the cast first class in this Light versus The Dark movie.

Blade Of The Immortal 2017

Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sota Fukushi



Based on a Manga series this movie is one big bloodfest with non stop martial arts action and what must hold the record for the most people killed in just short of 3 hours.
An Immortal Samurai is hired by a young girl to avenge her Fathers death and once he becomes her bodyguard the opposition start falling like the raindrops of a heavy shower.
Amazing action sequences are punctuated every now and then with dialogue (all in Japanese with English subtitles).
If you like traditional martial arts movies you'll love this, it won't disappoint you.

Survivor 2015

Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Dylan McDermott



Revenge and greed are the motives in this explosive action thriller.
Abbott (Jovovich) has got in the way of a terrorist and an assassin (Brosnan) so becomes a target before she ruins their plans.
Taking place first in London and then on to New York the battle of wits and weapons moves along at a brisk pace and as is usual the American hero becomes a Pariah in her own agency as they panic and blame her for the atrocities.

Entertaining without being sensational

6.5/10

The Shape Of Water 2017

Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Octavia Spencer



Guillermo Del Toro maintains his crown as king of the weird movie in this offering.
This is definitely one different love story from your average fare.
The cast, the sets and the photography are all top notch as is to be expected from Del Toro and the soundtrack just topped it all off.
Elisa (Hawkins) is a mute who falls in love with an amphibious man (Jones) who is in a laboratory where she works as a cleaner.
The way the two of them accept each other for what they are is well juxtaposed against the bigotry of the era where Black people are classed as inferior to the Whites.
I can see how Doug Jones got his part in Star Trek Discovery as he made a great amphibian.
Supported superbly by Jenkins, Spencer and Michael Shannon with Del Toro directing, The Shape Of Water was an unsurprisingly great film.

9/10

Serenity 2005

Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite



Serenity is a spin off movie from the TV series Firefly which is a cult classic.
It's full of action with space battles, gun fights, one to one combat and a lot of ugly guys (I'm sure some of you were extras) being beaten up by a little girl in a dress.
A stellar cast (stellar...geddit?) of those listed above and the likes of other stars (Oooh stars, I'm on a roll) like Morena Baccarin, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ron Glass elevate this movie to a different level under the direction of Joss Whedon.
Good versus evil with humour and action, what can be better for a Friday evenings viewing?

SciFi at it's best.

9/10

Overlord 2018

Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Ian De Caestecker




A plan to blow up a transmitter goes disasterously wrong when most of the planes, full of soldiers, are shot out of the sky.
Of those that made it out of the planes only a few survive as the German forces shoot them as they parachute down to Earth.
The few survivors left carry on with their mission which turns out to be more than just a transmitter tower.
It's gory, blood and guts everywhere, atrocities, violence and secrets in the basement of the German complex.

A very good film, the second world war in it's final throes and full of action.

8/10

Slaughterhouse Rulez 2018

Simon Pegg, Michael Sheen, Nick Frost, Asa Butterfield



This movie is what you come to expect of the Pegg/Frost writing partnership, plenty of humour, spurting blood from victims and weird creatures.
There is more than a hint of St Trinians about the school and the fashionable evil corporation causing the disaster.
There are some truly memorable comedy moments in this including
WARNING: "Spoiler Alert" spoilers below
Pegg's character being tongued by one of the creatures
.
Sheen is suitably OTT as the headmaster of the school and the rest of the misfits and bullies you'd expect in a British Public School are there to carry this along at a decent pace.

I enjoyed this film, it was humourous, silly and terribly British.

7.5/10

The Raid 2 2014

Iko Uwais, Arafin Putra, Oka Antara



In this sequel Rama an undercover cop(Uwais) infiltrates one of the major criminal organisations in the city.
I don't want to say too much about the storyline, so as not to spoil it for those who haven't seen it, just this is one non stop martial arts action movie with enough blood and brain matter spilt to make enough black pudding to feed a fat Yorkshire lass for a week.
The action is choregraphed superbly with some truly breathtaking moves on show.
Car chases, violence and brutality abound to keep any action fan well and truly sated.

Recommended 9.25/10
