Promising Young Woman (2020)
Good movie addressing rape from a different angle
I wasn't sure what the premise of the story was on first watching but it became clear that the lead actresses BFF while at college had been subjected to rape and as often seems to happen was not seen as a victim resulting later in her suicide. The writer took a different route in this story focusing on how this affected her best friend and the road it took her down to have justice which made for an unexpected ending .
Cloud Atlas (2012)
This is not a movie you can watch whilst doing anything else this I quickly realised that to keep up and understand the links within the stories requires full attention. For this reason I watched it twice the second occasion paying a lot of attention to each character. I have to say what an excellent cast I was amazed by how the cast managed so many varying roles and surprised how well the males playing female parts carried it off so well that I didn't realise it was a male!
You could say overall a simple story of the continuous of life and connections covering hundreds of years For this the movie kept me on my toes as I had to keep stopping it to check the characters at first but so worth it .One of my favourite shows that the wachowski's have done was Sense8 which sadly ended far too premature. I like their work and this is for me another to add to their hit list.
Free Guy (2021)
Lighthearted mediocre movie
I got to be honest the main attraction to watching this movie was the fact Jodie Comer was in it as I am a massive fan of her acting abilities sadly this movie left little scope for her large repitoire of talents and as great as she is she can only work with the script given, the movie is a family one mildly amusing and gamers will recall the many times they needed health packs and to gain points to increase their level to obtain better extras ,aside from that it is amusing the idea that none player characters develop their own intelligence the story is ok and the whole family can enjoy so enjoy it for what it is a bit of fun.
Birds of Paradise (2021)
Run of the mill ballet movie
I watched this movie more for the reason to see if it was anything new or different.
Unfortunately it ran along the same lines as every movie that has been done regarding balllet. As in there are always the mean gals and the nice gals competing for a dance prize that only 1 gal and 1 boy can win , maybe the slight glimpses of the backgrounds of the main characters may differ from previous movies but essentially it is much the same!
The only difference that I can see is nobody dies or is killed by the end so that I suppose is a slight twist . However not enough to make this movie stand out from the likes of Black swan and all the other generic ballet movies.
All Who Loved Her (2021)
High school project meets B rated movie
OMG this could have easily have been written by a high school student it is painful to watch. The plot / story is empty it is so basic it lacks everything the actors are wooden to the point I kinda think this may have been their debut appearance in a movie and if not then they have even further to go in acting classes than originally thought, Now the music score if it wasn't so pitiful it would be hilarious that regardless of the scene you are confronted with this droning what I think they thought was suspenseful type of music,that is so out of place and annoying.
This movie Fails on every possible level and can not be taken seriously Infact footnote to the writer whom also directed this "Don't call us mate we'll call you"😂
Massive disappointment So Amaturerish
As a Huge Lover of Norse Mythology I was very excited to watch this I had finished watching Raganourk a new Norse show which I loved and even found the subtitles easy and didn't affect my viewing enjoyment This movie however was awful and to be honest it was apparent from the first scenes but due to my love of all things Norse was determined to watch this movie till the end. The story was very pedestrian and not at all exciting the acting very high school quality and I found it hard to believe that the movie was made in 2019 as it came across set wise so bad the best part was the Wolf 🐺 but that was probably computer generated so not hard to achieve .
Don't know rhe writers producers or director but will make a note .
The Chestnut Man (2021)
Ok so watched with subtitles but in all honesty that made little difference normally I would expect to rate Scandinavian crime dramas highly after watching The Killing which was excellent but this was far too predictable in fact from the first episode I had already worked out in my head the narrative of the story and as I had pre predicted is what it was the only exception was I never predicted who the actual killer was but as the rest was all correct the excitement of who it was had already passed . Not particularly scary or exciting just average.
Cruel Summer (2021)
Dreadfully disjointed superficial US teen drama
Ok so I quickly realised that this show is not for my age group and is more for the teen market, However the way the writers put this series together is awful regardless am unsure if they think it is an arty way to tell a story or that the story is so basically weak that to hold any interest in it they feel they need to jump from one year to another practically every scene! If it wasn't for the fact that one of the female leads had braces and frizzled hair one year no braces and sleek straight hair next and cropped Mia farrow style hair year after you wouldn't know what the F was going on!
The story is so disjointed you're forever trying to work out what's going on! Which I am quickly realising not a hell of a lot.
In fact it paints a very sad superficial stereo of the American teen as in what appears to be the most important thing in their teen years is being a cheerleader pretty popular prom queen dating the good looking popular guy at school the parents appear no better.
Boss Level (2020)
Great action fun concept
Ok so there are many cheesey lines delivered in this movie but if you like action and a movie with a twist then you will enjoy this movie. As far as lead actors go Frank Grillo seems the perfect action hero and nice eye candy to boot! Mel Gibson an added bonus. If like me you are or have been a gamer you will enjoy what this movie has to offer as in you will have experienced it in your own way many times am sure 😁
Y: The Last Man (2021)
Very slow moving!
I am not a comic reader so have no idea how this compares.
I like the idea of the story as it is different but it is so painfully slow in action and story that I am on episode 5 and have little idea of how and why all the males died and to be honest not much has happened since they did which am not sure if that's a reflection on the writers conception of what a women only universe can achieve or they are just bad at writing progressive stories?
The only Male lead is an over privileged selfish childish idiot which makes it hard to watch and his sister is not much better In honesty the story so far has zero going for it and it will take a mammoth change in writing to rescue it.
Great Sci fi concept shame abc lacked forsight!
I stumbled upon this Sci fi show on Amazon and to be honest I normally won't bother to watch any show that only has 1 season for 2 reasons. Either the show is garbage and so not worth the watch or more upsetting that the show was really good but never given another season!
This show is the Latter!!
I had a quick look at the reviews on here and the overall consensus was it was good so I decided to bite the bullet I am glad I did it was full on action and kept me entertained from episode 1-22 and for the life of me can not understand why abc did not renew for another season it certainly needed another season to explain many things left unanswered
When I see some of the crap shows that got renews it makes the fact that this great show did not! More infuriating Whatever abc's reason was it Sucks!
This show was intelligent entertaining and had a great cast Shame on abc for lacking the same!
So so very BAD! It doesn't even deserve a star or a Review
😳 this has got to be the worst movie ever!
No story build up straight into the bizarrely ridiculous am unsure which is the most painful the script or the fact they enlisted a well known acclaimed actor in Rufus Sewell ,whom must be hiding his head in shame to have been dumb enough to think this movie would do anything for his career apart from either end it or irrepecably damage it for sure!
Story probably written by some 10 yr old and scripted by them also!
Horrendous pathetic childish and as entertaining as watching paint dry! And that is all I can say.
Different angle for a crime series
I was a late comer to this show but that's fine as I get to watch all seasons without having to wait bonus.
It has a different take on most crime dramas which makes a nice change and am sure like many viewers they warm to Dexter as a modern day vigilante as such whom kills bad evil people . I am currently on season 4 and have found the series very entertaining and addictive.
On season 5 and the show is beginning to slip. I find it hard to accept that Dexter starts as a very precise serial killer both in planning and excution and by season 5 he has become sloppy to the point of assisting a victim not only find and kill her abusers but he moves her in to the home that he lived in with his wife and family! That for me was unacceptable as Commonsense would tell you that is a dumb idea if you want to stay under a radar and not draw any unnecessary questions there were hints of this in season 4 when he befriends the trinity killers family which to me was so absurd given his job and the fact he made no attempt to disguise his appearance not what you would expect from the character that was portrayed from the first season.
All in all I would say the first 4 seasons good after that not as good. Have to mention this end of season 5 and Dexter is still wearing the same brown grandad shirt and combats that he has worn since season 1 surely wardrobe was not that strapped for cash that they could only provide one set of clothes for him? It's not like they are the regular black clothing you would expect if committing crimes to make you less obvious.
Season 7 and the wheels have definitely come off the bus Dexter has a killer on the table and just in act of what he does he changes his mind doesn't kill them but has sex with them instead I mean WTF and here we go again another killer love interest zzzzzzzzzzzzz it's been fun but all good things come to an end and this ended 2seasons ago for me.
Nine Perfect Strangers (2021)
A Unique take on a wellness retreat Superb
Wasn't sure what to expect from the title but was very pleasantly surprised by the unique storyline of Nicole Kidman being the owner of a wellness health retreat she delivers a super performance and the cast is stunning the story is well written and scripted to allow comedic intervals within that are perfect for the exceptionally talented Mellisa McCarthy. I am really enjoying this show and hope it is commissioned for a few seasons.
Well good to see the BBC is back in the upwards prejectorywith this new mini series. The BBC was renowned for great drama productions but lately it has produced some poor dramas so it is good to see them back on point with an added bonus with Rose Leslie in the cast.
Fantasy Island (2021)
Why oh why rehash mediocrity
I am not ashamed to admit that I watched the original Fantasy Island when I was a kid and the fact I was a kid was probably the reason I watched it!
When I watched this I was Not expecting it to be a rehash of the original in fact I thought it only a coincidence that it had the same title Sadly that was not the case as in the very first episode you learn this is the granddaughter of the or guy in the series and to be honest 45 yrs on and there is No Improvement to the original which is mind blowing So it beggars belief why they bothered to produce this series 45 yrs on and are unable to improve it!
It is full of the original cheese bad acting script and senseless storylines that the original had however I am a lot older now and am able to recognise all the flaws that I didn't as a young kid!
Dr. Death (2021)
Based on truth but roughly put together
I wasn't aware of Christopher Duntsch or his crimes possibly due to living in the Uk it was not broadcast on the news stations.
The story is incredulous and calls into account the US medical system that he was allowed to continue to practice surgery after the dreadfully botched surgeries that left his patients maimed and dead I am unable to comprehend how this was allowed and that 38 people suffered and if not for the continual attempts to stop him from the 2 physicians that tried to have him struck off he may still have been piling up the bodies!
This mini series is good but I did find the jumping back and forth in years confusing and added little to the production I feel to have told the story accurately in a timeline would have been a lot better and less confusing. So on that basis Regardless of the superb acting from the leads I had to knock a few stars off for the way it was produced.
Hate wrestling but love this show
Happy to see a new show and this has a great cast I have never been a wrestling fan and hate smack down etc and never saw the appeal of watching what I classed as the goody and baddy wrestlers play out their scripted wrestling! That aside I love this show as it goes beyond that thankfully I have at least learnt that my concept has actual names as in faces and heels .
The White Lotus (2021)
A very nice change well written and scripted series that also has a very good cast I am on episode 6 and although I am not sure the direction the story is going the characters are really developing and there are times that are quite funny you will not be disappointed sit back relax and enjoy a very well produced acted series that will hopefully be around for a few seasons.
Children of Dune (2003)
I tried to get through this but the heavy overacting just kept me getting annoyed not sure if it was intended but it came across like a very bad Bmovie
Am sure the books are far superior and in all honesty that wouldn't be hard to achieve given this production!
The only escape needed was from watching this movie
I didn't watch the first movie so had nothing to compare however if it was half as bad as this one I had a Lucky Escape all puns intended!
Acting mediocre script pathetic and I was too bored in the end to keep watching to see if the story improved I made it through the bank scene then made my own escape in search of a better movie to watch!
The Unholy (2021)
I am a big supernatural and sci fi fan so tend to watch any new shows of that ilk.
Sadly 9/10 they are pretty bissmal but sometimes you fall upon a great one a classic even.
This film is not one of them!
The truly good horror films for me fall into 2 categories either they are visually truly scary were you hide behind a cushion whilst watching the horrors unfold or they are psychologically scary whereby you are not convinced that it couldn't happen those are the scariest as sleeping alone in the dark is not something you would consider after watching one of them This film doesn't fall into either of those categories for me, it didn't scare me visually or psychologically !
Nothing to do with the acting as it has some good actors in it however the story is just not that good.!
Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)
switch your brain to the off position least you will enjoy the special effects!
I will be honest I have never taken to any of the monster films infact the last one I watched before this was the original King Kong when I was a kid over 55yrs ago lol I did enjoy it but then I was a kid and enjoyed most things.
This movie has a basic boring story the only thing I can say it has going for it is the special effects both Gozilla and Kong are masterly produced.
Besides that the rest is beyond mediocre but then again I would imagine it hard to write a good story based on the subject matter.
So switch those brain cells off pour yourself a drink and enjoy the special effects.
Sexy Beasts (2021)
More Beastly than sexy
OMG what a dreadful show! This has been done before in a much better way "Love is Blind" that show was believable and well produced.
This show is a bad joke from the ridiculous stupid masks/ prosthetics the competitors wore to the settings .I can only imagine the idiot that thought this up as a good idea!
The concept of being attracted by a persons personality before any visual attraction is not the problem but the way they decided to achieve it is so cringe and awful it is stupid!
Love is Blind is by far a superior production and credible my advice watch that and forget Sexy Beasts the worst show ever.
Lisey's Story (2021)
Like marmite love it or hate it
I am a Big Stephen King fan and in my youth he was one of the writers that I read a lot Most of them were scary but also compelling that much if it meant reading his books in bed late at night because I couldn't put them down I would although I would prepare the room before hand checking all areas and when eventually I could read no longer due to my eyes feeling heavy I would give into sleep with the lights on of course lol
Not all his books translate as well on the big screen Ifound IT scary when reading but boring as a film!
I haven't read this book but the production is very much his style sometimes appearing complex in its slow burning delivery but maintaining interest this is no exception As for the acting mostly good however I admit to not particularly likening Dane Dehaans role as the obsessive fan. I felt like he had studied every psycho part played in films adapting all into his role on this show and sadly because of that he comes across to me as overdoing it and not making the role his own which is a great shame !
On the whole if like me you love Stephen King offerings this is certainly worth iinvesting .time in if only to see if your interpretation is near the mark.
