Say My Name (2018)
adultery,is like a backfiring artillery
Its a comedy youll either love or hate. its hilarious at moments, stupendous at others, but as an allover impression, a pretty decent ragtag british/welsh/scottich/english comedy it is.
it shows you what may happen when doing a matresspring test with a stranger at a hotel or if you take a slingshot in the wrong directioncrossing the line of matrimony, and thats when the man is the stone(-d) and the woman is the sling. adultry is cool to watch on film, because its everybodys nightmare, and even still a wish for many, to get some break from the routines.
its a film about hotels,bars,nuns,convent,police,robbers,dealers,lapdancing, swearing, shootouts, bonds, and lawyers. what may surprise the viewer is that it is an extremely sad story of personal crisis, at many levels, and from a psychiatrists standpoint it would mean cash in the wallet. for me it was quite healing and appealing so i had some good laughs here and there, and the dialouges and physical acting are good. the filmography are splendid and doesnt leave you unattended at any time. the story may well be developed into a sequel, i would have liked that, and that is because im an grumpy old man. its a recommend from me.
Murder Mystery (2019)
not so bad after all
Comedy today means instant use of vocabularistic artistery, and the fun is tucked within there. but this is a kind of exception, with a good lard of action inbetween, and the car chase near the end are merely superb,and fun.
its a tour de europe for an american couple that nearly derails before it strats. due to unsirendipitous circumstances they bump into a murder, and if one murdered has happened a second will statistically occur pretty fast. and so goes the story.
its like a agatha christie novel ,though more comedy and action than miss marple and hercule poirot does commit, so if you want to go to cartagena,spain, monaco , lake como, and end on the orient express on high octane, then the grumpy old man recommends murder mystery
End Trip (2018)
if you like driving taxi
Its a film about a friendly new era car services, transporting people from a to b ,just sending a message on a social media channel to get a ride.until one day he gets a ride that maybe his last.
the production is filmed 90% inside the car cabin, most of it in the dark of the night. the acting are on average, and the kind of plot has been used before. there are some blood and gore here and there and tells a pretty brawled up mental story from more than one person.
its not the best horror thriller made, the grumpy old man wont return to this later for a second opinion, si its a thin recommendation to this flick
interesting historical big money heist made on low budget
Its a low budget, small cast, and very few extras on this filmproduction. its a classic take on the mafia money in new hampshire in 1975, and the start and the end of the movie gives some nice archive clips from the media made before and after the heist.
there are a cast that has been used , merely in small roles in big productions from the 80's till now, and considering their brand x they still do a fine job. the filmography tells a good story, but the screenplay could have been better made. its not like the oceans movies but an alright flick to see fro one night.
the grumpy old man liked the speed of happenings here, the humour are nice, and the films playtime are just perfect. i will recommend a look at this semi succesfull heist, were the majority of money still not accounted for
Diamond Tongues (2015)
This is a nice and cute story about an envious individual, that considers all other individuals as enemies, male as female, in the hunt for work within the art of actings. this actress has some talent but she considers herself the iminent super duper actress in the trade, and is becoming blinded by the light everytime shes on a casting, and whenevr her friends gets a job the devil picxks her shoulder and tells her to be mean. its that kind of story made on a small budget.
the acting and the atmophere of the film is good, but the very best is the way the filmography is made and used. brilliant!
its not a film for everyone, and you might have to clear your brain before viewing it thinks the grumpy old man, and then you might feel the same as i did when watching. recommended.
Do forget all about the original cartoon feature film called dumbo, its not the same anyway or anyhow. i love the animated story about the phant and the mouse and the storches that delivers the babies, having had it on repeat on the dvd player, due to my youngest sons severe asthma, that brought us into the living room at any time of the day, and usually at the nightshift hours, breathing steam and medicine from the nebulizer caughing and wheezing for air to stay alive, so you might say that i and my son knows the original, after maybe 250-300 times in a few months.
this is different and its pretty good medicine to all those children out there that needs something away from gaming and so on, because its the fantasy we need, and this colourfilled climax of vfx and cgi does the work. some of it pretty basic, at some spot bad, but merely very well done.
if youre looking for amazing acting, then look somewhere else. its like the recentmade robin hood film, its so far away from the original, that youll need to think new and alternative. i the grumpy old man had a great time with this dumbo movie, and will for surtain have a second view with my better half and now grown up children. its recommended.
Loss Prevention (2018)
its a sin....
This is not a good film, so if you decide not to watch then you make a wise descision, because its a sin to make bad movies like this. it has a story, but the technical quality of the work is so bad. just check the light angles and youll understand.
when noticing that 60% of the cast is also on the crew list, then a bell starts ringing.. the grumpy old man thinks that brian is cunning us all, and therefore will get tuna instead of ham on the bread for the rest of his life, its cunningly well done mr cunningham, you stole a part of my life tonight. defnately not recommended.
The Aftermath (2019)
a well known patterned drama
Its the busy husband, the lady of the house home alone longing and wishing, they rent the top floor to a man and his daughter, the tennant used to own the house but due to circumstances, he is alllowed to stay in the loft., their needs and cravings becomes unbearable for both of them, him due to loss of wife, she due to a husbands everlasting absence due to heavy loads of work. the infidelity happens, and the bond becomes heavy and strong. her husband finds out the affair eventually, and nothing is kept hidden away, and the whole relationship is unfolded.
well that was a short resyme without telling when,where or what. mrs knightley, does some heartbreaking scenes inbetween, but for the rest its acting on average. the filmography are at moments enchanting, but slips through here and there. the cgi and vfx used are good but not great, the details are missing in the visuals here and there.
its a sad love story from a sad era of european history. so if you love broken love stories, do watch, otherwise its not much left to see for the war monger thinks the grumpy old man
Shadows in Mind (2019)
how to creep out of the socalled locker
This is a weird film on the gay subject, with all its psychological ups and downs to try to live a life at the sideline of the cocalled correct way of life. the basic storyline is based on the busy working people at a emergency call center for lgbtq individuals in deep crisis or have questions to ask. the idea is not original, but as a subject to make a film on its promising,
but the makers and actors of this flick just fails, and fails a lot. its so monotonous in its story telling,that you start wondering why people choose this way of life that hurts so much.if its a pro lgbtq movie, well then its a failure.
the grumpy old man is not homophobic, not at all, but to make a flick that busts out extremely good movies like''torch song triology'' or recently made '' tucked'' they all need to practice more, and the story and plot must not be as nerdylike as its in this film. ill put this in the dumping bucket, better luck next time.
Hallowed Ground (2019)
This is the kinda stuff a local group of redneck actors make to try to sneak in from the d-division to the c-division in the art of moviemaking.
its something indian spiritual folkloristic stuff, with some racial thugs in the neighbourhood, that tries to kill any intruder, and its all caused by an ancient bloodfeud between the natives and the white natives.
the acting,the score, the story and plot are just lame and the grumpy old man does not bother to recommend this flick.stay away.
The Hummingbird Project (2018)
a very different and excellent acting skarsgaard
Its a film on the ''milli''this and''milli'' that scale of things, mostly about signal speed in fiberoptic cables, but also heavy thinking on the relative sizes of an atomic space, microwaves far beyond the idea of cooking food, and relative absolute rule that datapower and its inheritants will develop the double of the equation.... and so on, so that the time it takes to develop a technology, it will allready be outsourced by something else, and its all just fake, just as simple as that. add tummy cancer, nerdiness, investors and fed-up ex bosses, then you may have a small piece of the essence to this film.
i think this was a verey well acted movie, on a pseudo scientific scale, and i guess it will be heavy critizised by a vast majority of square-headed computernerds and financial brokers throughout the entire globe, because they simly forget this is pure and simple mind gaming entertainment and thats it.
very well acted, well made, a very inconclusive end, and that may be for the best to mankind and crop-owners in the world, so the grumpy old man put mr skargaard at the pidestall and cries out loud,hurra.hurra,hurra for his accomishments done to this flick. its not ten star worthy but a straight eight for the faith.
The Man (2005)
mr.levy near the peak of his best
Well its a action comedy for sure, wher people by incident gets drawn into a web of undercover agents and weapon crimes. if you want to get the upperhand on a cop, well then use FLATULENS!!!
mr. levy does a good job in this film, and this doest stand back from his appearances in films like when he play the sales manager in ''serindipity'', dad in ''american pie'', and up against steve martin in several films. he reminds me of a parrot mocking around all the time.
so if you are having a boring day, then the grumpy old man can recommend ''the man''
The Cold Blue (2018)
Its a monumental presentation of one of the most heiroic war machines ever made, the b-17 bomber ship,and the crews using them up in the cold blue, as presented by on scene documentary makers in 1944. its a historical document of high value, most of it in colour. its a must see if your into war history thinks the grumpy old man
Diggerz: Black Lung Rises (2017)
a kebab with all
Have you ever seen a walking talking chunk of kebab, wearing welding glasses and a pick axe in his hand. well this walking kebab is the monster in this horror thriller mystery slasher, filmed on location in trinidad,colerado, known for its santafe railway stop, its mining history, the first female sports jounalist, being the only woman then covering the world series/baseball, and famous for its weed, that is on wholesale on main street, working as a magnet and gravitates people from the surrounding states that doesnt have as liberal cannabis policy as colerado.
its in fact a flick that has its roots in history. in 1903 there were a vast explotion in the main mine, killing 13 miners, and the monster has appeared to commemorate his working buddies, by killing 13 citizens of the trinidadian population. the cruel killings are pretty graphic and the make or break-up department have had a handfull to work with.
its nt a good film, very primitive and amateuristically made, the cast are at best b'sides them selves, and the score is made by the children of trinidad school of arts, and so are the drawings. the plot are very predictable and the story easy to follow, so if you are a walking kebab yourself its easy to follow.
there are also a mysterious figure entering the scene in front of every killing, sending a message to the victim to come, that was the lamest figure of them all. ive seen this actress before, cause its a female, but dressing her up like a bearded midget with a large spoon and a frying pan , ringing the bell like the timekeeper in a boxing match.
i did though view the entire movie, and the grumpy old man had some history learned, but as a feature film its playtime is far too long and the scare jumps are absent, but i will not unrecommend it, because it has a tiny little bit of fun in it.
mustve been sponsored by the counsil of tourism of thailand
I expected comedy, but got a decent mediocre lifestory presented, when 2 young men hikes to thailand. both have the same goal, but on completely different reasons to go there. its a sad and depressiv story really, and i guess it will work best on all of you people that has traveled to thailand on vaccation
on the other hand its more like a prospect card presentation on the most popular tourists spots of the phuket and phi phi island region, well filmed and presented, so some sponsorship from a thai source there mustve been.
acting is slow a exhaustingly trying, i think the peer magnet of this feature movie were seeing mr. caulkin on the screen again, but he is just a fragment of the ad/hd- driven spark he had as a kid actor.
its not much thinks the grumpy old man, an ok watch, not much more than that
Adventures of a Pizza Guy (2015)
for whose tastebuds
Its genred as a comedy, but it was not my kind. i can see the fun about people being extremely shy, and who are strait virgins well into mature age, but the plot is in my eyes a big flop. the acting are better than many of seasoned actors, and the dialouges are swift and good, but the story is boring and full of hole and creacks here and there. the keyword to this film is just as simple as this, BLOODMONEY!! and to find out what that means youll have to see the film.
i can easily understand why the main male fell in love with one of his pizza customers, because shes a fantastic, beautiful curled haired brunette, that may give red bull wings and may give detective picachu something to chew on.
the grumpy old man have lost this kind of comedyhumour, and you wont regret it if you skip it.
I Am Mother (2019)
Its a film about robots from space, the destruction of mother earth, and how babies are trully made. its a girl and mum the robot, as she grows up being told that the outside world is lethal shes pretty ok with that, but one day there is a knock on the safe doors, and the girl lets in a woman, that make the robot mum furious. the girl and the woman eventually takes a trip out in the trully damaged world, and the threats are real for real.
its a syfy mystery drama, that uses a whole bunch of vfx and cgi, pretty well made it is, and the acting from all three mains are great. the story are of course very apocalyptic and gloomy, but the are always hope in the end of the line.
i got caught into the story pretty fast, and will recommend, even though the grumpy old man found it a little slow at times.
To the limit, actually the stalking were so intens, and some of the plotted actions made by the female lead, so daft , that it became some kinda boring feelin'.
but dont misun derstand me, its a vividly acted movie, and mrs moretz have developed into make or break to the top, beautful and seasoned actress, still at young age. the tension and feeling of uncomfortableness, hangs on you right to the end , i had my wife with me viewing this film, and the physical motions,and invoulantary whining and screaming was near perfect tourette syndrom . me, being quite immune and cool as a parkinson diseased, have great fun watching both the film and my better half
so if youre infor a multi femme fatale flick spiced up on mescaline, then have a look at greta, a recommendable film thinks the grumpy old man.
Future Weather (2012)
its acting with extreme talent
Future weather is about a young girl,left alone by a brainless, selfdeclared super make-up artist mum,who goes to to the mekka ofor dreamers, hollywood ,L.A..
the girl has a grandmother nearby, but they dont have a good relationship. but the girl is a mutitalented genious, and makes everything so maticolously well that she can bear over,even with just 50 dollars to live on till mum eventually gets back. that as the short story, and i will advice everyone who like youngsters in drama film, this is just faboulous. the female lead were at the time of production 13-14 yrs old, but acts like a woman well into her 30's and even better than that.
its love, hate,poverty,loneliness, achievements, thieving, family, hopes ,wishes and most of all decisions. i decided to fly through this 2012 feature lenght drama, but eased down to normal speed, did even repeat here and there,not to miss the plot, because its a sad and gloomy reminder to us all how voulnerable children are, so as u2 once sang,''with or without you''*2,''but i still havent found what im looking for''.
the determination shown in the making and acting are so huge, that the grumpy old man, and the not so grumpy wife were gobsmacked and stunned by this flick. its a highly recommended film.
Alita: Battle Angel (2019)
weve seen it before
But not with a female lead. the story is ok, the filmography fantastic and filled with fantasy, cgi and vfx are are good, bbg and atv were barely noticable, but works when used.
the acting are adventourous, the bounty hunting, or cyborg recykling are neolittic, high on hydrolics, and the robot excecutions, and some humans too are pretty graphic, so it not for them under 7 yrs.. it has some slow parts, a little kissing and cuddling,anything beyond that are quite utopian, so if your in for the skin, then you must dig deep.
i enjoyed the film, and the grumpy old man recommends
Giant Little Ones (2018)
beautiful film for all except toddlers
This was a surprise of lovely acting and brute but sincere storytelling. its a flick about teenagers that goes from caterpillar to beautiful butterflies, with all its crisis and emotional ups and downs we all have gone through at that age.
its a simple task for me, the grumpy old man, to say without any more revealing reviewing words, its a smasher film to fall in love with
A terible story about ptsd'd druged woman that needs recovery. easy made easy paid, and no more than that thinks the grumpy old man.there are some woman flipping out and some cross connections that kills, but its all basic and quite freudianic. terrible music that everybody with a battery driven babys keyboard could make.not recommendecd.
a tv docu
It is, the story and reenactment are pretty good, but its also filled with in situ sound and film via bodycam etc. a terrible happening, told well for you, and me, the grumpy old man
Ask Dr. Ruth (2019)
A lovely and extremely biased documentary about dr ruth westheimer, the queen of sexuality, the princess of variety and the godmother to millions ogf american born citizens due to the deeds and inspirational words in radio and television since early 1980's, making couples spit in both hands and have sex without boundaries and inhibitions whenever however and wherever.
its a lot of '' i was'', ''i did'', ''i know'' and ''i can'' in this feature, but we must all bear over with her age and lust to tell her story. the makers have spiced the film with some ingenious animation sequences, mostly covering her childhood, brilliant.
the grumpy old man, still with a handfull of tricks recommends, well made and sooo cute.
Hotel Mumbai (2018)
raw and full of realism
One of those films that will fill you with sadness, so meaningless for most of us, and a signal of desperadoism from the rest.
acting are at times extremely good, the bandits raw and extremely cold activities are cruelly well done. the sound effect department has done an brilliant job, the sound of shooting and boms were just petrifying.
a film to watch if your in good shape, history nerd and can accept a glitch of absence of bollywood dance ensemble numbers. the playtime maybe long , but all in all the grumpy old man recommends a watch.
