Entertaining Series With a Very Good Cast
Some lesser-known but very good actors and actresses in this series helped make it enjoyable.
Eden Brolin was great, hope to see her in future TV series and movies. And Jay Paulson, Dilan Gwyn, and Peter Kelamis did a great job of bringing their characters to life.
It's quite an entertaining series, with the last three episodes of the second season being especially good.
Despite having some very good acting (especially from the lady who played Anna) and very good visual effects, some unimaginative screenwriting ruined this series.
I rate the first few episodes of season one higher, but during the later episodes of season one and during all of season two it became repetitive and monotonous.
It was frustrating to watch the Fifth Column fail over and over again because of betrayals or stupidity. It was painful to watch the same old trite "we can't do this because a few people might die" from Fifth Column members, in light of the fact that EVERY human on earth would die if Anna succeeds.
Nothing was resolved at the end of Season Two, other than it seemed like everyone on earth was surely doomed. What a terrible way to end a series - could they not have come up with an episode to provide a satisfactory ending?
Genuinely Frightening, but Otherwise not a Good Movie
Some parts will certainly keep your attention, but there really isn't much of a story here and as others have mentioned, there are some plot holes.
It lacks character development, there is no explanation of the antagonist's motives nor is there a satisfactory explanation of why the woman is leaving or exactly what her plans are or where she is going.
However, that being said, the movie will not disappoint those looking for sheer horror.
I was expecting another mediocre sci-fi movie, similar to several others that have come out during the past few years.
The opening scene, in which there seemed to be a paranoid (perhaps mentally ill) over-protective father and his little daughter, made me think twice about continuing to watch it.
But it gradually became more interesting, and the last 30 minutes or so turned out to be quite entertaining.
A Perfect Plan (2020)
Mediocre Crime Thriller
Sometimes low budget movies have an interesting, well-written story, but not this one.
Some of the cast such as Munroe and Forsythe were okay, but others such as Hough and Sandhu did not perform well.
The Kill Team (2019)
Unrealistic, Not Worth Watching
The story is unrealistic. Although some murders had taken place, the circumstances were different. They didn't choose some random man and execute him - it actually started with acts of revenge for terrorist attacks on the American troops. American troops are not psychopathic serial killers, although some no doubt developed a hatred for the Taliban.
The first phone call to Winfield's parents doesn't make sense, as he had no evidence at that point that a murder had been committed. It would have been better if that conversation had taken place later, after Winfield actually saw a murder.
There is poor acting by Nat Wolff, although the rest of the cast was okay. Wolff's character comes across as feeling superior, not being friendly to his peers, and being rather selfish - overall, not at all likable.
The movie takes the side of the Taliban, portraying them as innocent victims of sadistic American soldiers. This is dishonest and very unrealistic.
A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019)
Excellent Revenge Thriller
This is the best thriller I've seen in quite awhile. Too bad more people didn't see it. It came out last year, but I never heard of it until two days ago.
It's very realistic, all the characters are believable, and the acting and direction are very good. The last twelve minutes are especially entertaining, but I won't spoil it.
Wake Up (2019)
Decent Serial Killer Thriller
A very good performance by Jonathan Meyers and some quality direction made this movie worth watching.
Although the basic plot was fine, some parts of the story perhaps should have gone into more depth and detail.
But overall, it's a decent serial killer thriller.
The Lodge (2019)
Painful to watch
Not an easy movie to sit through.
Some very good acting by Riley Keough, otherwise there is nothing positive about it. It is not frightening, just very depressing.
The Cleansing (2019)
Better Than The Rating Indicates
I enjoyed this film, it was never boring for me. It's definitely better than most low-budget movies.
The settings in the forest and small village were nicely chosen for this type of movie, and the costumes are realistic for the historical time setting. And there is nothing seriously wrong with the plot, the direction, the acting or the screenwriting.
The Owners (2020)
Very Good Acting, Poor Direction, Mediocre Story
Excellent performance by the very talented Maisie Williams. Some of the other cast performed their roles well too.
But the direction was sloppy and unprofessional, and the story could have been much better.
I hope to see Maisie Williams working in better movies in the future.
Rules of Engagement (2000)
Racist Movie with Ridiculous Plot Holes
Despite a talented cast, this is not a good movie. The portrayal of Yemeni children as terrorists was obviously racist.
The ending of the story made no sense, it was very inconsistent with the actual trial.
Hour of Lead (2020)
A Different Kind of Story
This is a very strange story, with plenty of suspense and an element of horror.
The Anne Heche character is very unlikable and isn't easy to watch by times, but in the end I realized she was the right person for the role.
The story is well-written and keeps you guessing until the end.
First Kill (2017)
Some people are being much too harsh in their criticism of this movie, there is nothing seriously wrong with it.
The acting, direction and screenwriting are all fine. It was entertaining and somewhat suspenseful, I was never bored while watching it.
Like with most movies I enjoy, I'll re-watch it sometime in the future.
The Silencing (2020)
Decent Crime Thriller
Although the last twenty minutes of the movie is somewhat too predictable, overall this is a decent crime thriller. I would have preferred we be given more background details, especially concerning what happened before the beginning scenes of the movie.
But there's a very good cast here, and there's enough mystery and suspense to keep the viewer's interest.
The Outer Wild (2018)
Story Lacked Structure
Most of the cast were okay and the locations were good. However, the story is meandering and lacks a coherent structure, and some of the dialogue is poorly written.
It would have been better if the main character had been more likable, so she could have gained the sympathy of the viewer. And when we do see a likable female character, we soon find she is in a sexual relationship with her father and has had a child by him. That is sickening, at least to me.
There are a few decent action scenes, but overall the movie is too negative and depressing.
Ghosts of War (2020)
A Mediocre Horror Movie
With a decent cast and an interesting basic plot, this one had the potential to become something better. However, the story went down the drain towards the end.
Some parts don't connect very well, the story overall doesn't completely make sense. If the movie had been edited properly and a few changes made here and there, especially toward the end, it could have been a very good movie.
It was entertaining in parts, but overall it's a mediocre horror movie.
Entertaining But Too Far From Historically Accurate
This movie could have been better with higher quality screenwriting. There's an excellent cast including some beautiful actresses. The costumes were okay, and locations were very good.
But some of the writing is absurd. The Frisians did not sacrifice young women to Freya, burning them alive (another people hundreds of years earlier, the Celts, did sacrifice perverts and criminals to the gods by burning them in wickers). The Friesians although pagan were somewhat more advanced than as shown.
Redbad's life was very different than shown in the movie - he was an older man when he won his victory over the Franks at Cologne, and the Friesians were allied with the Saxons not Danes at that time. Redbad had ruled the Frisians for at least 20 years before that battle. He had never been exiled or put out on a boat to die.
Charles Martel was a fierce warrior but not an evil man, he did not murder his little nephew as shown in the movie. And neither were Pepin nor Saint Willibrord as cruel and vile as shown in the movie. Although he is killed in the movie, in reality Willibrord died in 739, 20 years after Redbad's death in 719.
This could have been a great movie, if the much more interesting REAL history was shown instead of a silly storyline we've seen too many times in other movies.
Battlefield 2025 (2020)
Most of the cast came across as poorly-trained, very inexperienced actors and actresses. The special effects were not professionally made and the direction was poor.
It seems like not much thought was put into making this film - the simple story seemed like something a young child might come up with.
Anderson Falls (2020)
Deserves A Better Rating
Darkness Falls is a decent crime thriller. There is nothing wrong with the directing, acting or screenwriting, and it's never dull or boring.
The Rising Hawk (2019)
A Breath of Fresh Air
It was wonderful to watch an inspiring movie like this, a tale of courage and perseverance during difficult times, considering all the depressingly negative films coming out in recent years.
Great locations and nice cinematography in this one. And there's nothing vulgar or perverted in this film, so it's suitable for the whole family to see.
There are too few movies like The Rising Hawk coming out nowadays.
The Game (1997)
This one keeps your attention, it's never dull or boring. Unlike many thrillers, it's not predictable - there are several surprises along the way. The acting and camera work is very good throughout.
I would give it an even higher rating, except for the ending which isn't as good as the rest of the film.
Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
Great Cast Wasted On Badly Written Story
This movie would have been better if it had simply followed actual history. Despite the wonderful cinematography and great cast, the poorly-written story made it difficult to watch by times.
The movie is very anti-Christian. The Templars are shown to be heartless killers. The priest in the first part is portrayed as evil, and the Patriarch Heraclius of Jerusalem is portrayed as a despicable coward (the historical record describes him as the very opposite, he was actually a very brave and honorable man). In contrast, the Muslims are all portrayed as decent, wise and honorable people.
Balian was nothing like the character in the movie. He wasn't a blacksmith, he was older, and he was at odds with Sibylla, not her lover. She actually loved her husband, Guy de Lusignan, who was not killed by Balian and wasn't the villian we see here, although he wasn't a wise military leader as we know from the Battle of Hattin. Guy was given lordship of Cyprus in 1192 by Richard the Lion-hearted. And finally, although Raynald was very aggressive, he wasn't an insane fool as shown in the movie.
Rather than using contrived dialogue and the same silly stereotypes we've seen in too many movies, it would have been better if they broke away from the political correctness and made the characters and events more realistic.
Bird Box (2018)
Not Worth Watching
The story is not original. But other similar movies have had better, more intelligently-written dialogue than this one, and didn't have the plot holes.
Bird Box is boring in parts. Some scenes drag on for far too long, it would have been better to shorten it by at least 20 minutes.
The acting isn't so good. John Malkovitch is not convincing in his role. Sandra Bullock has performed very well in other movies, but seems uninterested and unfocused in Bird Box.
My advice: don't waste two hours of your time watching this one.
The Spanish Princess (2019)
I was hoping for something better. The two books this is based on stays within the very interesting historical framework. However, this TV series goes too far from real history, often to the point of being ridiculous.
Everything is too contrived, it's just a lot like the same old politically correct soap operas we've seen in other recent TV series.
I like Charlotte Hope, and I think she wasn't a bad choice to play Catherine. But sadly, much of her dialogue was poorly written. There are some other very good actors and actresses, but sadly their dialogue is also badly written.
