I found most of the main information from Wikipedia.
I'm too lazy to write all the names of the source-websites. :D
Also too lazy to write what fex. movies have the "killers" done.
(also, the definition of "celebrity" here is very vague)
Other sources Google.
I take every suggestion!
Sorry for poor writing. I'm from Finland.
There are also people have been involved/convicted on killing and are later proven innocent/found not guilty and or released. Sorry for "misleading".
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
I haven't despised a film this much for a long, LONG time. First of all; Brie Larson didn't need to be there, other than to so sympathy and empathy for Kong. She plays a photographer, who will not be able to publish her photos, because it's a a top-secret government mission and also John Goodman's character (who only speaks exposition throughout the film), has a camera, so she wasn't needed, AT ALL.
The directorial choices are SO WEIRD it hurts. One time they show a guy getting dropped into Kong's mouth and then stupidly cut to a guy eating a sandwich and then later show a guy actually get eaten. Those weird "camera on top of a gun"-scenes are so unnecessary.
The characters were very clichéd and their choices were idiotic. Shea Whigham's character's proposed "sacrifice/Come and get me"- scene is stupid in an another level.
Samuel L. Jackson's character I kind of understand (he doesn't want to think the war is lost and that they conceded and he wants to prove himself) but his scenes are ridiculous and he seems typecast (I mean he says "Hold to your butts" in one scene. Just. No.)
Tom Hiddleston and others are just there and Hiddleston is their leader. (That's about it. The Japanese character barely has any lines and I can't remember what was her role, I guess she was Corey Hawkins' assistant oslt and all the others are just stereotypes)
John C. Reilly is probably the most compelling character in the film and literally only who has an arc (Younger version of his character is shown landing to the island in flashbacks) but when he leaves the tribe, he's lived for nearly 30 years, it's literally just; "Well, I guess this is goodbye... Bye!" That was pretty... well stupid and bland. I mean, the last scene of the film (not counting the after- credit scene) is Reilly returning to his family and having a hot dog, BECAUSE THAT HAD MORE DEVELOPMENT THAN Oscar WINNER BRIE LARSON AND TOM HIDDLESTON!
The good stuff (I guess) is the special effects and motion capture for Kong (though the constant size changes are hair-ripping, I mean that Kong's hand in the mountain in one scene is as big as half of Kong in all the other scenes), that one scene at the tribe where they visually show Kong's story via paintings, the gory stuff was cool also (although it makes the tone feel more messy, which is annoying, but I respect the studio for having balls by making this PG-13 rated blockbuster be this graphic) + the fight scenes with Kong and monsters were okay and the designs for them were good.
Basmati Blues (2017)
(This is my first review, though I've seen over 1500 films so far, but in this case, I had to do one because I'd been waiting this for since 2014 (longest wait for me in any single movie), based on the cast, genre, setting and plot synopsis alone. I watched it last night in YouTube after purchasing it first.)
Brie Larson and Scott Bakula play a father-daughter scientist group, who have just finished making a new GMO-rice and Donald Sutherland, who is the CEO, sees a business possibility to sell this new rice to farmers, so he sends her to India. While trying to teach the farmers about the new rice, she meets with Rajit, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar and a seed of has been laid.
That's the basic plot, but the way it's directed and written is another story. The film is a musical that borrows A LOT from Bollywood-films made in India. It's a very cliché-filled film (fish out of water-situation, love triangle, misunderstandings, evil CEO), but it's never boring, despite it being about selling rice. The writer- director Danny Baron is a first timer, and it shows in all- around cheapness and almost made-to-TV/direct to DVD-feel, but he shows talent and love to the musical genre, and Bollywood in general, in some amazing cinematography and good acting from all of the cast. The scenes and chemistry between Larson and Ambudkar is very sweet.
The film is very self-aware (I mean, the company is called Mogil and Sutherland's character is named Gurgon!) The musical numbers are fun at the moment, but they don't really make an impression, but I doubt they weren't even meant to be timeless. The singing is all-around good from Larson and Ambushkar and even Donald Sutherland and Tyne Daly share a villain song together (with Daly having more solos with better range while Sutherland "groons" the lyrics)
For the issues, you have to understand what the film is trying to "mimic" by having seem or heard of Bollywood cinema and how they're made. The film can also feel a bit too "happy" and "stakeless" and some of the clichés and dialogue may feel stupid and a bit ridiculous, but if you view it as a self-aware absurd romantic musical comedy (which it is) that was made for something like ABC Family or Disney Channel, you might enjoy it, if you're in the right mood.
