The Numbers Station (2013)
well paced thriller
i liked this film, it was about something id never heard of before,which is always good,and to have a large part of it based in Britain was nice, my reason for giving it 8 and not 10, is SPOILER ALERT: plot holes, such as in Britain if you arrive at a hospital with gun shot wounds carrying a gun and crash into cars, the police are called, and would hang around until you woke up,as its a rare event,and they would have confiscated his gun. SPOILER ALERT. also if there is a giant explosion any where, either the police or military police would attend, pretty quickly, or fire fighters,or just local people.as Britain really isn't big enough to have middle of no where places. but besides that, i liked it,
frantic. fast moving zombie film, with twists and style
i loved this film, fast moving zombies, lots of biting, scary, had me shouting at the screen, ''run run run'', The train situation was great, as they are trapped, claustrophobic, and yet escape is possible,. All the actors did great job,some with comic aplomb. The little girl is an amazing actress. do admit in some places it slowed down, when you would think it would keep racing, with sentimental and melodramatic moments, i guessed these were Korean film culture.but they still added to the anxiety. This film takes zombie films forward,. further then zombie land did, it makes walking dead look amateur. i would recommend this film to anybody except maiden aunts and sissies
A Cure for Wellness (2016)
a self indulgent mess
i was looking forward to seeing this film, as the trailer and premise sounded good, and Celia Imrie is in it. It started good, but half way through it dragged for along time, with parts of it where i nearly fell asleep (something i rarely do in cinemas).I was confused often, which can be good, but not in this film,i really had no idea what was going on, and i didn't like any of the main characters. The end was a furious mishmash , almost like an entirely different film, with a Draculesque theme. If you like art films,directionless films,or lengthy periods of actors staring off into space, then this is the film for you. But if you want a story,with characters you can connect with don't watch this, i wanted to like it, but i couldn't, everybody in the cinema left as soon as it ended.
Gods of Egypt (2016)
great film, one fo the best I've seen in the genre this year
i got this film for Christmas, just got around to watching it, i loved it, great fun, and educational, i learned a lot about Egyptian gods, and enjoyed the rollicking ride of a story,it reminded me of Jason and the Argonauts, or the titans, a sort of epic film, which used used CGI for its intended purpose to show scenery which would be impossible to produce . i enjoyed it so much i looked up Horus et al in my encyclopedia ( a book thing with lots of information in it). if you like action films, based on mythology, love stories, and comedy, well you'll like this. Is it accurate who knows, as from what i could acertain from the encyclopedia there are many myths using the same gods, from different eras of Egyptian mythology.But id recommend this movie
Super 8 (2011)
a really good fun film
i hadn't heard of this film and saw it on cable, from the off i liked it,films with kids in them as the main character always get my attention when i was young and still do. i read some bad reviews of this film, so was a little wary, but i son realized they must be trolls,as this film keeps you watching,even before anything really happens, the kids are great actors. This film isn't realistic as it involves aliens etc..once you understand that then you can enjoy it,its very Steven Spielberg, which i like,lots of effects a unusual story, monsters, laughs, a bit of sorrow. as its based in 1979 they use music from them, and jokes about stuff like Walkmans etc..all in all i liked it, it has a few swear words in it, so maybe not for little ones. i liked it and luckily i taped it so i can watch it again tomorrow.
Die Hard 2 (1990)
just watched die-hard what a load of pony, god stunts, acting not bad, some comedy, plot ridiculous, handled ridiculously. SPOILER ALERT 1, they would have diverted all the planes to other airports 2. the airport police would have taken a shoot out very seriously. 3.the so called special forces would have had berets in exactly the same style, 4, the baddies would have hired the church, not squatted in it ( anything could have gone wrong). 5, the airport could have used generators on wheel to power up the lights, 6.where did the baddies think they would fly to, where, ? 7. there would have been hundreds of fbi. army soldiers there, not 20. 8.why didn they just make it a hijack,now that would have been suspenseful, but no they make this hash, i watched it all the way to the end, thinking it might improve, but no, earlier in the film, bruce willis phones his wife on a plane via a pay phone!!!, but when radio contact is lost with plane, it never occurs to anybody to phone them.!!! i hate long reviews on IMDb of more than one paragraph, but i cant stop i hated this film the fist time i saw it in 80's and i hate it even more now. i know its an action film, but really, there was no need for the crap plot, it was just lazy, one star is me being generaous
London Has Fallen (2016)
i rip roaring fight of a film
i loved this film, i knew what it was going to be like all guns and baddies, i knew it was in London so expected big stunts and bombs going off, which is what we got and i knew it was an American film aimed at Americans, so i knew it involve them being great and everybody else being useless, and that's how it was.
It starts with the British prime minster dying, pity they didn't make it Tony Blair, but hey ho, then a massive funeral with loads of world leaders and terrorists who come to kill them all, which happens, and is very exciting, and from then on its full on action. with a simple plot save the president of America. simple and fun, i wasn't bored at all in this film.
if you love action and fantasy situations then you'll love it, if you like real life, then no, i give it 10 out of 10 , for sheer fun
dull , long, no direction ,mess
i love james bond,I've seen all the films, and i can say this is the worst one, dull , meandering script, at times i had no idea what the plot was. lots of confusiion ,SPOILER ALERT: like aeroplanes appearing from no where,daniel craig didn't appear to act at all, just the same bemused face all the way through, im surprised he doesn't want to do any more.there are good stunts, car chases, fights, but lots of boredem, and often i was lost, the side story of oo dept being scrapped was just annoying, often extra would disappear completely, i wouldn't recommend this film to anybody. if james bond ahdnt been in it, id thinkit was a b movie made for TV
Sex Tape (2014)
a lewd take on married sex lives , and a sex tape
Im glad i didn't heed the bad reviews on here, and still watched this film, its so funny, laugh out loud. I don't understand why people who don't like sex or comedy, go and watch a film called 'sex tape. Its fun from the first scene, and as the story unfurls, yes its lewd, and rude, sexy, and outlandishly funny,great cameos from Jack Black and Rob Lowe.who's character is hilarious. I found myself wondering what will happen next, as they surprised me over and over. But most of all if your married with kids, you'll know how your sex life is, but to see it played out on the screen makes it so funny. But if your embarrassed by sex or sexual language, then this film isn't for you, also its probably not for teenagers,as there is no actual sex in it. i love it and its going to be watched again, maybe many times over the years
good gritty war film
if you want total reality in a war film, watch world at war, but if you want a romp, some action a bit of drama, this film is for you, I saw all the bad reviews on IMDb, after i had thoroughly enjoyed the film. I thought it was pretty authentic, very bad things happen in war, men are driven quite mad. I liked the whole thing how they had authentic uniforms, tanks, guns, It was suitably claustrophobic in the tank, realistic in that they were filthy, as there are no showers or pizza huts in the middle of war,and the second world war at the near end was vicious on all sides,prisoners were often summarily executed, some of the scenes in the war, really make me glad i wasn't there.i would recommend this film to anybody who likes old fashioned war films, where you just enjoy the ride.
