A must see Film
I have a busy week ahead this week with new titles to review,starting work again after a two year absence,but I have to include this as one of my must see movies.
Yes I know it is almost 4 years old now,and I have owned it since 2012,but It is a film I forgot how good it was. Staring Michael Shannon,and the always reliable Jessica Chastain.
Now Curtis is a hard working father is loved by his wife Samantha,with a normal boring job,but it brings home the money his family needs,and he also has a very good medical package with his job,which is paying the medical bills for his deaf daughter.
One day Curtis wakes from a bad dream about an impending storm of biblical proportions,he puts it down to a bad dream. But with these dreams becoming more frequent,and actually start to see visions during work,and daylight hours,of storms,birds attacking him and his daughter in a vicious manner.Quite rightly he tells his wife who puts it down to stress.The Visions and dreams become so frequent Curtis cannot distinguish between the two any more.This he decides is a vision only he can see,and he must protect his family at any cost.He spends all his savings on building a storm shelter they could all live in for months,with ventilation,food,running water.His wife goes along with it until he loses his job,for borrowing an industrial digger without permission,from his boss.
His Job gone,all savings gone,and so is the medical insurance for his daughter,the whole town is treating him as a lunatic. He is even diagnosed with a mental illness, and why because his mother suffered from visions also.
This film is so well made and acted so well, yes it is a slow moving film,and some has been very critical of this. But it is a truthful film about the start of mental illness and the start of a hard working man having a breakdown all because he wants to protect his family.
When the storm does arrive it has a sensible conclusion,and when he and his family come away unhurt,it has a believable ending of a man accepting his flaws,with a determination to get better.
This film is a fabulous film I can not recommend enough,and please watch to the end as it has one of the best endings I have seen in a film in quite some time,so much so it made me cry,and that very rarely happens. A must see movie if anything for Michael Shannon's performance as Curtis,as I have never seen him in anything better since, a believable portrayal of a man who is not perfect but one who will stop at nothing to protect his family who he loves and adores.
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.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
