Please post more than just the title. 

 

We don't need a War and Peace essay on the film, but at least give a couple of sentences of good and bad points and even throw in a rating if you want to, as long as you give some rationale.

SEA FEVER (2019)

maxresdefault.jpg

Sypnosis: Solitary marine-biology student Siobhán endures a week on a ragged fishing trawler, miserably at odds with the close-knit crew. But out in the deep Atlantic, an unfathomable life-form soon ensnares the boat. As members of the crew now succumb to a strange infection, Siobhán must overcome her alienation and win their trust -- before everyone is lost.

I was not intrigued by this movie it could have been a whole lot superior but I was very disheartened since the ending just sucked and there was only one decent death scene other than that I wasted an 1hr30 mins of my time in this existence of watching such a substandard film. I have nothing more to really say but I do not recommend this movie at all, also there is no authentic soundtrack you can try to perceive on youtube either which sucks ass.

the movie has a rating of 5.7/10 on IMDB but I give it a individualized rating of 2.4/10.

James Bond Thunderball-another old James Bond movie I rewatched,I liked it,especially the underwater battle scene.

 

Captain America The First Avenger-it was on TV so I watched it again,since I like both the MCU movies and WW2 movies,I like this movie a lot.I think it's especially cool how several of the actual German prototype weapons and military vehicles (such as the plane that Cap and Red Skull fight in at the end of the movie) are shown being used by Hydra,which fits well with the retro-futuristic tech they're shown to have.

 

Space Cowboys-I watched parts of this movie,but this was the first time I watched it whole.I liked it a lot,the story is interesting,and the actors had really good performances.

and the shark escape in the pool...


I just watched Goldfinger (1964), Sean Connery is a spectacular actor.

 

and also, GoldenEye (1995), the plot was particularly good and perfected by Pierce Brosnan

 

I'd give both a 9.4/10 rating

Midsommar (2019)

 

MV5BMzQxNzQzOTQwM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDQ2

 

After watching Hereditary (2018), I wanted to see what else the director had in store. He had another horror film that I have never heard of before, called Midsommar (2019). It seemed interesting and had a lot of good reviews, so I watched the 3 hour Director's Cut last night. 

 

I'm not sure what to think of the film, to be honest. It did have its moments and some scenes were quite creepy and unsettling. The death scenes, though there weren't much of them, were pretty brutal and realistic. The characters were also well-developed. 

 

It was a bit slow paced, and even though there's nothing with wrong "slow paced", I felt like it dragged on a bit, especially at almost 3 hours. While I personally didn't find it to be as tense as Hereditary, there was an urban sense of realism. I still much prefer Hereditary.

Frayed (2007)

MV5BNDI4ZWNjNGEtODJjOC00OWRjLTk3NjMtNGUx

Sypnosis: A small town sheriff's worst nightmare comes true when his homicidal son escapes from a psychiatric hospital. An intense manhunt ensues as the dark secret behind the son's evil past becomes revealed.

This movie was very creepy and extraordinary, it had an phenomenal plot line and it even had a mind blowing plot twist at the end of the film, there is one death scene which looks actually looks so real and there has been commentary by viewers who actually thought the scene was factual. The movie pays huge homages to John Carpenter's Halloween (1978) and somewhat a bit of Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007), there was one instrumental I found quite decent but unfortunately tried to detect it on youtube but I could not find it, there does not seem to be any soundtrack of the movie detected on youtube whatsoever but otherwise ethical death scenes, ethical heart pumping moments but another downside is the ending kinda got me confused in regards to the plot twist.

The rating on IMDB is 5.6/10

I give this an individualized rating of 6.0/10.

Way too edgy at times, as expected of gaspar noe, but i definitely cant fault the cinematography and atmosphere. the first 1/2 hour of this film is filmed entirely from first person and the opening (coupled with the trippiness of freak by lfo) is basically a graphic designer's wet dream in jumpcut form

 

benoit debie deserves a prize for this film tbh.

Snatch-watched it again after a few years,one of the best British gangster movies in my opinion,though I do prefer Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels.

 

Air America-I liked this movie,and especially the soundtrack (Vietnam war movies in general have great soundtracks full of late 60s and early 70s classic rock).

 

Big Trouble In Little China-watched this one too again after a few years,great movie.The story is interesting,the fight scenes were cool,the special effects are good,and it was funny how Jack Burton seemed like a stereotypical 80s action hero,but most of the time he tried to do something badass he would fail (such as having his gun run out of ammo and not managing to reload until the fight was over,or shooting in the air before the battle and hitting the ceiling causing a piece of concrete to fall on his head and knock him out) and the others would solve the problem without him.

It's set in Belfast during the troubles. I personally found it scarier than most horror films.

The film's made in the UK, but is not available on the British Netflix.

 

Because f*ck logic, eh?

I really enjoyed this, it's a modern retelling of the classic "who dunnit" genre. It kept me engrossed with many twists and turns throughout. The ensamble cast is excellent, in particular Ana de Armas who brings a great believeability to her role, and Daniel Craig who is excellent as the debonair private eye Benoit Blanc. 

 

Well worth a watch with a clever plot and snappy dialogue with some humour sprinkled in occasionally.

What film is it? The image isn't displaying. That's kind of near my neck of the woods. Well, a couple of hours away anyway. 😛

Yeah it's unusual how the licensing deals work with Netflix. It's up to the distributor as they probably publishing rights. Some times these films are essentially owned by the distributor because the distributing companies are lecherous like old record lables. They would distribute a movie but want to retain the rights for it for 20 years. So essentially the filmmaker gets their movie out there but gets shafted in the deal. Nobody foresees something like internet streaming coming a long. All of a sudden you have a publisher with the rights to a European/UK release that "owns" the film for those regions but the filmmaker might have control over the rest-of-world. So, they can put it out on Netflix AUS or Netflix US.

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia Movie Poster | Japanese 1 ...

 

Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia

 

A pretty badass yet extremely nihilistic contemporary western starring Warren Oates and directed by Sam Peckinpah (Straw Dogs, The Wild Bunch). It's probably Oates's best performance since DIllinger in 1973.

 

For all the violence in this movie there's also a bunch of funny scenes, like Oates pouring a swig of alcohol on a decapitated head. Bits of the film were also sampled in one of the Chemlab albums.

It was a brilliant film for its time. Its a slow burner, but things pick up very fast towards the end.

 

The ending was dark but satisfying

This movie hurts your brain, man. It's about multiple different alternate realities of a group of friends colliding together during the passing of a comet.

HEREDITARY (2018)

hereditary-poster.jpg

My best friend recommended me hereditary (2018) and I can say its a very eerie film and really fits into the atmosphere, the effects/shots were outstanding, the camera angles were phenomenal and the characters were efficiently developed. the ending was a bit mystifying and if you didn't understand the ending with ease I highly advise to read about it so you get a better acknowledgement of the movie overall.

Synopsis: When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter and grandchildren begin to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry, trying to outrun the sinister fate they have inherited.

IMDB gave the movie a rating of 7.3/10, I will give an individualized rating of 8/10 as I subjectively enjoyed the film and I admired the spine chilling jump scares.

Unfriended: DARK WEB (2018)

UnfriendedDarkWebPoster.jpg

this movie was very sinister as the first one , overall I relished this movie but it could have never vanquish Unfriended (2014) as the story line in the first one was more personal whereas this one was somewhat a bit natural

To be honest I have nothing more to say other than I wish this sequel had a subjective storyline too.

Synopsis: When a teen finds a laptop with a cache of hidden files, he and his friend discover that the previous owner has access to the dark web and is watching over them.

IMDB gave the rating of 5.9/10 but I give it an individualized rating of 5/10 as I despised the movie in regards to storyline but I relished the effects and ball tingling death scenes.

Host (2020)

v1.bTsxMzUwNjEzMjtqOzE4NTYxOzEyMDA7NDAwO

my best friend recommended me this movie. it actually takes place when lock down due to covid 19 occurred, I found it really ethical, I loved the effects and relished the death scenes. I have nothing substandard to say about it in fact found this film to be so much more adequate than both of the unfriended movies. the movie had amazing heart pumping and spine chilling jump scares which I truly admired.

Synopsis: Six friends accidentally invite the attention of a demonic presence during an online séance and begin noticing strange occurrences in their homes.

IMDB gave the film a rating of 6.7/10 but I give it an individualized rating of 8/10 as I idolized the story line and cherished the jump scares/death scenes this movie gave me so much adrenaline.

I will be definitely watching it again!

 

THE VISIT (2015)

The+Visit.jpg

I subjectively enjoyed this movie, it is delineated as found footage with good effects and the quality of the film via the camcorder used in the movie was outstanding and crisp quality, this movie didn't start off as good as it should have been but started to kick in at the 30min mark, I was very galvanized when this movie started to evolve, the jump scares were ball tingling and the ending blew my mind out of existence, overall this movie had its twists and turns I thoroughly relished it and was content when I finished watching it.

Synopsis:  Becca and Tyler plan a week-long stay at their grandparents' place, whom they have never seen. Little do they know that their visit will be the most terrifying experience of their lives.

IMDB gave the movie a rating of 6.2/10 but I give it an individualized rating of 7/10 as I found the ending and the jump scares ethical and spine chilling, the movie could have kicked in a bit sooner but hey everything has its flaws.

I would definitely watch it again!

Bill & Ted Face the Music is a corny, dumb, stupidly optimistic movie about two absolute morons trying to, get this, save the world all of reality throughout time and space through the power of music...

 

...and it is indubitably non-non-non-heinous and truly most excellent my dudes.

 

It would be so easy for a movie like this to be terrible. If we pretend Blade Runner 2049 doesn't exist, when has a belated sequel actually been on par with the earlier entries in a series? And with Bill & Ted, now don't get me wrong because I love the originals, it was never world beating cinematic excellence. B&T has always been somewhat dumb, wholesome fun that, looking back, was very much of its time. Remove that from its context by 29 years (holy f*ck) and it'd be real easy to miss the mark. But it just kind of doesn't?

 

Reeves and Winters manage to avoid the sad trope of being someone playing just the same character but with a time-addled body, but still retain everything that made them so endearing. The portrayals in this movie are what I genuinely think two guys like Bill and Ted would be like three decades on.

 

Which brings me to my next point: the kids. Introducing younger versions of the characters is a common theme in late sequels. It's usually a calculated move to leave the franchise open to a soft reboot and it is never what audiences are looking for (looking at you Indiana Jones). I know, the daughters are just the guys aged down, but between the relationships between the daughters and their fathers (so much dorky love) and the performances I actually wanted more of them. Samara Weaving is great as Thea, but holy sh*t Brigette Lundy-Paine as Billie is perfect. They must have watched the movies on repeat for weeks before filming because their performance as Young Ted is better than Keanu's. Their slack-jawed gaze, overall movement and delivery of the signature "Whoa", all absolutely on point.

 

As for the plot, it's daft and ridiculous with a seriously wholesome message at it's core. Bill and Ted continue on their quest to unite the world with their music and take the whole family along for the ride this time. It's so corny but it's great because of, not in spite of, that. Sometimes unabashed positivity is a totally unreasonable stance and also exactly what you need to succeed.

 

In summary, Bill & Ted Face the Music is a rare belated sequel that stays true to its roots, moves on in the necessary ways and surprisingly brings a fitting and genuinely heartfelt conclusion to a series after three decades.

 

In parting:

RATTER (2015)

MV5BMTU0MzU3NzYzM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODU3

I detested everything about this movie,it is a found footage horror movie and it was absolute sh*te.  There was no spine tingling jump scares, no mind blowing plot twists, very substandard effects. the ending was so crap there was no need for me to even watch it till the end (but I still did anyway). It was a braindead and pointless film.

I have nothing more to say.

Synopsis: Emma, a young graduate, moves to New York to start her life afresh. She is traumatised when a stalker, who hacks into all her electronic devices, begins to keep track of all her moves.

I'm astonished to see a rating of 5.5/10 on IMDB, I won't even give it a individualized rating because that's how aggravated I was due to the whole outcome of the film.

I will never watch it again!

ALIEN ABDUCTION (2014)

220px-Alien_Abduction_2014_poster.jpg

I actually had a soft spot for this film, I was very intrigued about the storyline and the overall movie was sufficiently good, I would say this was very natural for a alienated found footage horror movie very kindred to Area 51 (2015) also in which both of these movies received similar ratings on IMDB.

Synopsis: An 11-year-old autistic boy uses a camcorder to document his family's ill-fated camping trip and subsequent encounter with malevolent aliens.

IMDB gave the movie a rating of 4.9/10, My individualised rating will be 5/10 for the most part I relished the movie but I felt like it could have enhanced way more.

THE DEN (2013)

The+Den.jpg?format=1500w

I savored this movie, it is a slasher horror and it was so much in comparison to unfriended (2014). The film was shot as a on screen computer film and the cameras used for the movie were not ethical enough to high standards if I'm going to be honest. I did admire the killer's mask in the movie it was very intimidating and I did find it to be quite iconic. The movie was distributed by IFC MIDNIGHT and directed by Zachary Donohue, The director was known for only 3 films and I was very astonished of how this low budget movie played out. There was a few jump scares but there could have been more, The death scenes were mind blowing especially the first one caught on the computer camera.

Synopsis: A young woman studying the habits of webcam users, witnesses a murder online and becomes the killer's next target.

IMDB gave the movie a rating of 6/10, I will give it an individualized rating of 6.5/10

This is really a great film to watch if you're into this kind of genre. I watched it sometime in between 2014-16.

 

Would recommend this and the movie Triangle (2009) starring Melissa George.

Triangle is also great and follows an identical plot line. Here's another one: Timecrimes (2007).

Yeah very similar these movies and timecrimes was funny in some scenes too for me. Nevertheless the plot of that movie was too good specially in the final parts.
