Crop And Save
Beyond Skyline (2017)
I was waiting for the sequel to the excellent film skyline.
Seems this film more or less forgot all about original film. The whole of LA were trundling alone as though nothing had happened in past.
Then some bad ass aline comes along and starts doing its thing. A set of disjointed characters then appear. Lots of blood. Alien has ass kicked by a child and railway worker.
Big bad alien dies.
Mechanic: Resurrection (2016)
I have liked the past films.
Jason looks more like desperate Dan these days.
Jessica Alba is always pleasing on the eye but the long body shots of here, really ! Michael Yeoh was nice to see again, not seen here since James Bond.
But the biscuit is really Tommy Lee Jones who is made to look like Ossy Osborne, give us a break.
The whole thing just was not convincing. It jumped from place to place. The bad guys were just not bad enough. Were there any good guys. ?
Its just too predictable.
Eddie the Eagle (2016)
just watched it
i have to say as movies goes its one of the best out there. inspirational. Funny true. So nice to watch a true movie as well. I do recall the time back in 88 when all this happened.
Been looking forward to seeing this one for so long.
I do recall an interview many years ago where Eddie said he wished Hugh Jackman would play him. Well not far off.
Look forward to seeing it again soon, sure its going to be on repeat viewing.
Won't be long now. Until watch it again.
Hope Springs (2003)
Love the film
You by now should have read the plot and this does review does not contain any spoilers.
It is a great film, has great acting.
Good story, lots of twists and turns in it, very funny.
Its a simple love tale, with a few surprises on the journey.
I take this off the shelf every few months to watch.
Same class as love actually, Notting hill, etc.
If you are looking for an action film, go elsewhere.
If you want a feel good film, this is for you.
When friends come to stay, I show them this film and they all enjoy it.
Don't be put off by some of the other reviews.
Great visuals but a real let down.
I was looking forward to seeing this film. There is a lot of press going on about this at present and its had good reviews, however It was a huge letdown, though the visuals were stunning.
I will say up front that I like both Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as actors.
The opening sequence is very good with the shuttle whizzing through space with the earth behind.
A few minutes after this you see the astronaut played by George taking the jet pack for a spin around the shuttle without out a care in the world and the other the other tethered astronaut bouncing up and down on his leash like it was a bungee cord.
At this point I had a few alarm bells ringing in my head.
So it goes on like this.
The astronaut Sandra, inserting a circuit board which is not encased. Loosing a bolt. Not having tools tethered. The astronaut George chit chat chat-up rather than focusing on job.
When the debris hits the shuttle all of a sudden the debris has more mass than the shuttle and knocks it around like a toy.
The unprofessionalism showed by supposedly trained astronauts spoilt the film, let alone the lack of real following of physics.
It would also seem Nasa no longer have any ground radio transmitters or Russians or Chinese for that matter.
It just goes on and on with error after error.
No astronaut would remove their helmet before leaving capsule.
The final sequence I almost wished there was a shark in the water to eat astronaut Sandra or she would be shot as a spy.
I know films are entertainment and sometimes they take liberties with the facts but this film it was continuous one after the other. I was expecting some but it could have been so much better if they had some proper advise before they committed to film.
I love space films but they completely spoilt it for me with the story line and lack of understanding of physics and how well trained astronauts are.
Thankfully the film was only 90 minutes long.
Apollo 18 (2011)
I enjoyed it
I was nearly put off seeing it by some of the reviews here.
SO I thought twice about seeing it, however I like sci-fi so had to watch.
The plot is well covered in other reviews.
Yes the style is different but it is in keeping with the moon landing and pictures taken at the time. Its all filmed as though done through the hand-held moon cameras.
Some reviews said actors were wooden but that is the whole point, they are supposed to be normal people (well as normal as any astronauts ) can be.
The test for me is :-
Would I watch it again, yes
Passion Play (2010)
time stood still
Well what can one say about his "film"
I like Billy Murray and was the only good bit of acting in film. Megan fox has her place in some films. Ryhs Ifans is good actor but given a horrible script. Never really like Micky Rouke. Why does he wear nail varnish ?
The film leaps around with no explanation or credibility.
Its drawn out and I feel is if I need another drink or 2 to stay sane.
Yes I watched it from start to finish.
If you are bored and need an hour and half to kill this is for you.
Story line non existent, credibility non existent, acting .....
You get the gist.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
what a boring film.
TLJ does not appear for a long time in film (he is a good actor but the lack of appearance in this film spoils it).
Who are we to feel sorry for the bad guy or the idiot that steals the money & then goes back to the scene of the crime, why does he do that.?
Why when he has a $1M or more does he feel he needs to stick around ?
Everyone dies almost.
Sorry but i found it boring & without any real substance.
TLJ plays a bored old cop, who maybe good but we don't find out.
The bad guy just kills everyone.
Even the mob boss gets bumped off by the bad guy, does he not have any protection ?
As for the mumbling or ramblings at the end, i was glad it finished then, almost switched it off.
The Lake House (2006)
Sorry but it all does not stack up.
Time travel but then effecting things in past from the future. Call me cynical but once you have changed things they change.
Its like the old culumdrum if I kill my mother before I was born I will not exist, then how can in the future you go back and kill your mother ???
So in the end can you effect your past by changing things in the future ?
The house was nice but we never did see him or take a shower with an all glass house.
The Weather Man (2005)
not a comedy
Not really a comedy.
Very disjointed film.
Sad, depressing, futility of life.
Sorry I only thought 2 bits amusing in 2 hours.
Those bits being when he was saying about getting girls friends easily & when he was telling his x how she was lacking in the bedroom, unfortunately their daughter was listening in at time.
No howls of laughter but just amusing.
Just to quirky for me.
Found it more depressing than funny.
Keeping Mum (2005)
a wonderful British black comedy
highly entertaining, good black comedy.
What seems like a perfect setting in middle england, with Rowan Atkinson who plays the local vicar.
But all is not perfect in the family, with his wife yearning for more fun in life & his daughter getting too much fun & his son being bullied at school.
The vicar has lost his sense of humour over the years.
Things all change with the arrival of the new housekeeper, played by Maggie Smith.
A surprising role for Patrick Swayze as the local gold pro but played well.
Good fun film
