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.
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…
