Murder in the Hamptons (2005)
Well made true life drama
I thought this was well made and well acted throughout.
How accurate it was I do not know. Poppy Montgomery was excellent in the role of the mentally unhinged Generosa Rand/Ammon.
I am not sure the Danny Pelosi character was portrayed as evil as the real person.
would also add that the young actors playing the adopted twins were very convincing.
Watchable but unbelievable
The story was quite good and the acting reasonable, but the way the couple acted was stupid and unbelievable.
Why would they let strangers into their room when your alone and leave them with their stuff
The main characters are supposed to be Christians but smoke and swear, the guy drinks excessively, and the girl kisses a man she just met but when he makes advances later she brutally kills him.
Also attempts to dispose of the Russian doll drugs are made to look impossible, but how hard would it have been just to dump them somewhere?
When the villains capture the couple, they leave them alone in a room which has a door leading outside.
The Cold Light of Day (2012)
Could have been so much better
This movie had a lot going for it:
1. Good actors in Bruce Willis, Henry Cavil and Sigourney Weaver
2. A reasonable plot
3. Great location
However the story was weak and unbelievable. Exactly why the bad guys needed to kidnap Bruce Willis' family to get a brief case back made no sense, they just had to follow the evil CIA woman. The evil person in a position of power who was supposed to be on the good side (Weaver) was not convincing at all. Henry Cavil's character made no sense and acted in the stupidest ways considering he was trying to rescue his family. The car chase was silly (as they usually are in most movies) his half sister almost died during this chase but that's Ok is it? He was rescued by the very people who kidnapped his family.
That said I found it watchable for the most part, I just think it was a missed opportunity.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
Better than I thought it would be
After reading the reviews on here I though this was going to be rubbish, it wasn't, in fact I quite enjoyed it.
Many point to plot holes but there are plot holes in many action movies, just about all James Bond and Mission Impossible movies have plot holes and more than their fair share of bad acting, but these are movies not literature or art.
If you accept this movie for what it is, it is a good well directed story.
The Shallows (2016)
It's only a movie guys
I appreciate and understand the frustration with plot holes, but this is only a movie, not a documentary.
The acting was pretty good, the CGI as good as any and it had tension.
I ignored all the silly plot holes as I do with most movies of this type.
Even the much lauded 'Jaws' has silly plot holes and awful special effects, so in my opinion this movie deserves more credit than some are giving it.
A Hard Day's Night (1964)
When Music was this good!
As a music movie this perfectly captured why the Beatles became such a phenomenon. Brilliant!
David Faustino tried his best to act as the sick individual that Albert Desalvo was, regardless of whether he was the man who committed all murders associated with 'The Boston Strangler', he committed at least one, proved by later DNA evidence.
But I could not stop thinking 'what's Bud Bundy doing using such foul language?'
The story itself was however interesting and you were left concluding Desalvo probably did not commit all murders attributed to 'The Boston Strangler',
Andrew Divoff was the stand out actor as the detective who believed there was more than one killer.
Lady Macbeth (2016)
Story of a woman who is at first a victim then becomes worse than her abusers.
What is hard to understand is why? Something is clearly missing from the plot.
Yes she is young and bored and married to a man of dubious moral character, but to resort to murder and to have no regard for other humans is baffling.
Maybe she is a Psychopath? Some say she is a feminist, but to lose all morals and murder even a child is not feminist.
That said, the acting was very good and the scenery so I give it 5 stars.
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Very well made movie despite some glaring inaccuracies. Rami Malek deserved his Oscar playing Freddie Mercury. I was pleased the movie concentrated more on the band and Freddie's musical performing rather then his private life, although enough of that was presented to show what a tormented soul he was.
The recreation of the 'Live Aid' gig was amazing.
I like music biopics,
Fred Weller makes Brian appear like a silly teenager, yes Brian had mental problems fueled by drugs but he was a musical genius and this does not show through. Matt Letscher stood out as Mike Love.
Nick Stabile was well cast as Dennis but the movie stops before his drowning which was a tragic event in the Beach boys history.
Where I think the movie failed is that it lacked any joy. The Beach boys music oozes joy and this was not put across.
For those reasons I actually prefer 'Summer dreams'
Living with the Enemy (2005)
Not bad and kept my interest
Quite a good TV movie that kept my interest throughout. There are good main characters and some of the supporting actors were also great.
The story was very good and although I guessed the ending it was still executed well.
Justice League (2017)
I fell asleep
I fell asleep trying to watch this. CGI alone does not make sa good movie.
Story line weak and poorly executed. These are great characters but they need a better script and director.
Silly and unrealistic story
One of the worst movies ever, If I could give zero I would. The plot, if I can call it that was so stupid I almost turned off but kept watching as it was so bad it was almost comical.
Just some plot holes were.
A supposedly intelligent Doctor stupidly rents a boat from a local, the boat has no Radio and he doesn't seem to think to take a mobile phone. He was so desperate to hire it because no Jet skis available, yet this is their first day at the resort and tomorrow would have been OK surely?
When telling the Police his family are on an Island they calculate a 150 mile radius as they say he was drifting for an hour, yet he had not drifted on his way to the Island and should have told them how far or at least how long he had traveled, narrowing the search
He stupidly allows his family stranded on the Island yet pays a high ransom before they are rescued. Duh!
He is taken by Miguel to a payphone to raise the money needed. He makes several calls but doesn't think to just run to the nearest Police station and get Miguel arrested.
Rather than cooperate with the Police he acts like a guilty criminal and tries to track the criminals down himself. This guy has no fighting skills but thinks he will be quite safe chasing hardened criminals in areas where he stands out as not local..
When finding Miguel's home, he bursts in with no plan. He tries to fight in order to force Miguel to take him to his family. Had he learned nothing from previous contact with this man? Why did he not phone the Police and tell then he had found Miguel? He manages to Kill Miguel, the man who knows where his family are. Great plan that.
He gets on a bus going nowhere particularly as if he has all the time in the world. Has he forgotten his family are stranded on an Island? But wait the other criminal just happens to be on the same bus... wow of course that could happen. Then this man gets knocked over on a quiet road by ta car that does not even break or sound the horn. This is a wide straight road and the driver would have seen him long before. The driver then acts as if nothing much has happened, he may have killed this man but stays around and even lifts the body into his truck. Oh and just before our hero says to the driver, 'I am taking your truck', yes he is such a tough guy that the driver will just let him?
When reaching to the island he finds his wife and son collapsed for some reason since they seem to have water with them, his son is not breathing so he saves his son by doing CPR. If his son was not breathing he would be dead unless he just happened to stop moments before his Father landed on the Island, oh yes very likely.
As for the very end, it was all left hanging up in the air. Did they live? Die? Was he arrested for the deaths he was involved in? All very very silly. There are many more plot holes and the acting is awful throughout. Danny Glover was cast as a Detective who has as much common sense as a slug.and he is way to old to play this part. Just why he or Eion Bailey or Barkhad Abdi agreed to star in this nonsense is a mystery. As is why some on here gave good reviews. Were they watching the same movie?
The November Man (2014)
This movie just proves that Mr Brosnan could have continued as James Bond for a much longer. He is perfect in this role and the movie moves at a good pace towards a satisfying conclusion.
Butterfly on a Wheel (2007)
What a thriller should be
I don't understand the negative reviews, this was a good thriller. Not perfect, but well acted and with a very good ending.
At first it seems unbelievable and frustrating but at the end it all make sense.
All the lead actors are good even if Pierce' Irish accent is a bit iffy. Strange considering he is Irish but hey.
The only disappointment was the very last scene which left things hanging in the air a little.
Age of Consent (1969)
Kept my attention
This is an odd movie in many ways but it has a lot of drama and humor. The dog was very amusing as was the drunk old lady.
Others have commented on the content of this movie but I would say the title is misleading.
Great episode except ..
Great episode with an interesting story line.
But this new girl Officer Ruby Patterson played by Shyko Amos is too annoying and needs to go, she is no replacement for the brilliant Danny John-Jules as Dwayne.
So sad to see Joséphine Jobert as DS Florence Cassell leave the show, she will be missed.
Please get rid of Officer Ruby Patterson and bring back Dwayne.
Don't Talk to Strange Men (1962)
Well made 1960s thriller
I enjoyed watching this. It shows how different things were back then in many ways, yet in some ways the same.
It seems perverted men have always tried to groom young girls but back then there was no internet. The way they show the young innocent girl taken in by a mans voice n the phone was very interesting. The underlying terror created was very well directed and acted, reminiscent of early Hitchcock.
The end seemed rushed but justice was served, the very end scene was a bit odd and didn't make much sense. When the younger sister says she thumbed a lift home. Why?
Deadly Excursion (2019)
Badly presented story
This could have been good and it started well but the story got so silly it was irritating. The two women did everything a normal person in this situation would not do. Watch it if you like shouting at the screen.
The Wrong Daughter (2018)
Not bad movie, it is hard to believe this is based on a true event but it was OK.
April Bowlby was a revelation in this drama, I had no idea she could act after only seeing her before in 'Two and a half men' as Kandi.
Les Misérables (2018)
I wanted to like this and it started OK, but then along came a number of actors who seemed to think French people speak with an east London accent, can't actors act anymore? Olivia Coleman, so over rated was just awful as were many others. Such sloppy attention to detail spoiled an otherwise good production.
Much better than the Hunger games
This is a good movie series that worked well. Good acting and an engaging story.
Much better than the Hunger games in my opinion.
Taken 2 (2012)
OK its not as good as the 1st one but!
OK its not as good as the 1st one but its still enjoyable.
The first Taken was much better and a hard movie to follow but this was OK.
Liam Neeson is his usual brilliant self and I actually found it to be a good action movie. I thought there was to much car chase and yes the plot was full of holes, but it is a movie after all.
Sad tale of a prolific serial killer
The content of this movie is why I give it 8 out of 10.
It is incredible that one man can kill so many women over a couple of decades, despite a massive Police task force set up to catch him.
One of the failings was listening to the FBI profiler who got it completely wrong but was so arrogant to accept any other evidence. Also reliance on Polygraphs which are notoriously unreliable.
The killer had been arrested before but let go due to lack of evidence and because he passed the lie detector and didn't fit the profile at all.
So many women and very young girls were raped and killed and it was only the advent of DNA evidence that got him caught. Even then a plea bargain means he is still alive, although in prison.
Some of the acting in this movie was good, but it was over long and could have been tighter.
The scenes with the dead girl talking was silly and detracted from the story.
Death in Paradise: Episode #8.2 (2019)
Great series spoiled by new member
I love Death in paradise, it is my favorite TV show of all time, but Officer Ruby Patterson, the replacement for Officer Dwayne Myers is just awful.
She is irritating and has turned a great show into a bad comedy.
Apart from her this episode was pretty good. The murder was unrealistic but this is fiction. I think they could use some new writers and remove this irritating addition to the show.
