Hard Times (No One Knows Better Than I)



NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH 2008 Rod Lurie

1h 48min | Crime | Drama
Writer: Rod Lurie
Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Alan Alda, Vera Farmiga, Angela Bassett, David Schwimmer

Starring; Vera Farmiga you need more reasons to watch? All jokes aside this film surprised me in a good way, underseen/underrated political thriller about the freedom of the press. Great performances by the entire cast with the exception of David Schwimmer.

2h 13min | Action | Adventure | Comedy | Music
Cast: Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Carrie Fisher, John Candy, James Brown, John Lee Hooker, Steven Spielberg




The first and last time I saw The Blues Brothers I was around six or seven years old and it turns out my memory of it was totally inaccurate. Had such a blast watching this, can't believe I waited so long to watch this as an adult.
John Landis has the magic touch, amazing performances, phenomenal music and cameos by many musical legends. It's probably the best and coolest (never corny, overly expressive/happy) Musical I've seen and features the best chase scene in a musical ever. Besides that, it's a massive eighties cult classic that instantly brings up all my nostalgic feels for that era.



love the movie especially aretha frankin who sang think in the movie, gosh i miss her music D=

LAST AND FIRST MEN 2020 Jóhann Jóhannsson

1h 10m | Mystery | Art house Sci-Fi
Writers : Olaf Stapledon, Jóhann Jóhannsson, José Enrique Macián


"Listen patiently. We, who are the last men, earnestly desire to communicate with you."
Discussion worthy filmmaking. This is probably the furthest journey into time my imagination has taken me through ‘film’. A message from eons in the future, alerting humanity to its ultimate extinction. It’s more of an audiobook with epic black and white ancient stone still life cinematography. Pleasantly and soothingly narrated by Tilda Swinton. The concept of ‘the human hive mind’ being our most powerful means of survival is fascinating.

(art house rating: 83/100)
