The Best Bond Film Never made
I never thought that Matthew Vaughn could better the fantastic Kick-Ass, but he has. After the disappointment that was X-Men First Class,he has excelled himself with this. A blast from the past film that gives a sly nudge nudge wink wink to past English spy films. That resembles a cross between The Avengers on speed,with a mix of Roger Moores wit and charm in 70's James Bond,with gadgets galore. As the recent Bond franchise has gone soooo serious that Matthew Vaughn actually said that what he wanted this film to be very early Bondish,very English,very witty with an over the top villian we have not seen in many a year. Now I have always liked Colin Firth as an actor, I can't say that Iv'e enjoyed his choice of films over the years. But why oh why was he not even thought of as Bond in the nighties,he is brilliant,would have knocked spots of Pierce Brosnan. He kicks ass like I don't know what. Now the story is a simple one a secret organisation is set up after the war to protect England from evil, by a bunch of gentlemen millionaires who want to use there money for good,and sets up the organisation Kingman- The Secret Service. With a front Suit fitting store in the classy Saville Row,as the organisation headquarters. Now Harry Hart played by Colin spots potential in a street youth,always in trouble,with the police,but just seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This young lad Eggsy certainly is no gentleman,but Harry can see his potential and wants to prove his boss wrong,that not all Kingsman have to come from Eton, and boy is he right,when he goes to a training camp for spys and passes with flying colours. The cast is spot on too Taron Egerton is spot on as the wise ass Eggsy who is cocky,confident but never annoying. Colin Firth is brilliant,with a top notch British cast Mark Strong is as reliable as ever, so is Michael Caine. The brilliance is the over the top Samuel L Jackson as the meglomaniac who wants to destroy the world because of his radical views on the Eco system of the world. This film is funny,violent,very clever that nods back to the type of film of yesteryear,Matthew Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman who both co-wrote Kick Ass has proved to be a fantastic writing,producing and with Matthew being a fantastic Director. Can I recommend ermm yes please buy,stream steal,only joking but please see this great film, you will not be disappointed.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
