Movie Review


"Atomic Blonde"  Well this was a female (Charlize Thuron) version of James Bond or A Liam Neeson female copy.  She could fight, kill, fall out of buildings, shoot etc.  Ah yeah there was a lesbian attachment and plenty of action with another female. There was double crossing in it and in my opinon not very believable.  I guess the director thought that women were taking over the world, TV stations, Modelling, CEOs etc etc, so why not have a female Liam Neeson. 

"Logan" 
This was the last movie for the Wolverine unless he comes back from the dead.  The fight scenes were extraordinary.  Hugh (Logan) killed people by pushing those sword type blades through people's heads, necks, arms, chest etc.  The story was interesting enough but the fight scenes would make you groan or even turn you head away.  I'm glad I saw it because I'd never scene a wolverine movie before.

"Patriot's Day"  This movie was about the Boston Marathon Bombings.  It showed how the perpetrators were found and within 80 hours one was shot dead and the other one was captured. The movie showed how the FBI and police worked together to find the bombers.

"Allied"  This was an interesting movie.  t was a love story with Brad Pitt a Canadian Pilot Officer and a french girl who was a double agent but was pro Germany. They worked together to kill some German Officers and later got married. They actually are in love and have a daughter.  The twist at the end is whether she still is pro Germany or not.  A good movie.

"La La Land" Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone do a song and dance and become romantically involved with their individual talents of playing Jazz & Acting respectively.

"The Founder" This is the story of how McDonalds started. It was actually started by two brothers who developed the fast assembly of the hamburger.  Then a salesman teamed up with them and franchised the idea.  He went on to develop an empire of stores which made him very wealthy and then he shafted the two brothers and drove them out of business.  After the movie I thought about not eating at another Maccas again.  But Maccas does offer a fast food outlet that attracts many walks of life.

"Hacksaw Ridge" This movie has been in the making for more than 10 years.  But Mel Gibson started directing it in Australia in 2015. The battle scene on top of Hacksaw Ridge is like being in it.  It is so real.  Mel Gibson also directed the Passion Of Christ and in both movies Mel is able to show the pain and suffering that the actors portray.  As I said the battle scene was horrific and I sat there thinking how did he do it.  The movie itself is very enjoyable in a strange way. There is ridicule, joy, humour, bravery, love, honor and belief in God.  The story is based on a real event where a 7 day Adventist from the USA joined the army as a conscientious objector who would not bear arms but became a Medic and in the end saved 75 lives.  He won the highest bravery award in the army.  At the end of the movie you see the real character when he was in his 80s.  He died at 86 in mid 2000. After see that movie you wonder why anyone would send young men into battle. 

"The Magnificent Seven" Did you grow up watching western movies on a Saturday morning.  Did you ever have a set of silver guns and holster.  I did. Well this movie will take you back.  The stunt men were fabulous and the camera work was fantastic.  Hundreds of people get shot and fell off their horses.  It was what a western movie should be.  Good wins over evil.  Although I must say that the "goodie" - Denzel Washington - was dressed in black.  When I grew up watching western movies the "goodie" dressed in cream or white.  It must be the 2016 slant of things. 

   "Sully"  A very good and interesting movie about the flight that came down in the Hudson River NY.  Good acting, great story and Clint Eastwood directed another exciting movie.  It showed how the captain of the plane had to defend himself against the aeronautical organization.  Tom Hanks played a convincing role to make the movie believable and real

   "Spin Out"  An Aussie movie. Very Ockerish.  People walked out of this movie because not much was happening. Good acting but weak story

"Jason Bourne" Well, what can't he do?.  He is an expert in computers, driving, riding bikes, fighting, acrobatics, cell phones, surveillance and out smarting the opposition.  I think there were more than 20 people killed and and more than 50 cars smashed up.  And wait, there's more. He wasn't caught so he probably will be back in the near future. His last "Bourne " movie was made 10 years ago, so now the actor is in his mid forties and may have to slow down some.  Although Liam Neeson who is another action packed actor has made action movies well into his fifties. The plot was simple.  The agency wanted him dead and he wanted to find those who killed his father.  Lots of action and not a lot in the story line but a few twists in the plot made my Friday night more interesting than watching some boring show on TV.

  "Tarzan"  Not like the original Johnny Weismuller version.  The reviews in the paper are right.  Not such a good movie. Tarzan who lives in England is very wealthy land owner (it's in the family).  He decides to go back to the jungle to try and stop slaves being taken from their homeland.  He spends half the movie with his shirt off but his long trousers on.  So girls you just get to see his torso.  Jane however is fully dressed the whole movie. The best scenes are with the apes.

  "Central Intelligence"  This is a comedy with the 'Rock' in it..you know the muscle guy. Actually his acting is very good in this movie.  HIs co-star is also very good with facial expressions, voices and actions.  It's about crooks stealing the plans for a satellite.  There re people undercover and for  the most part you do not know who is CIA and who are the crooks.  But it's funny and lots of action

"You Before Me" - New lead Actress.  Lots of facial expressions, wacky clothes and shoes but acted the part well.  A sort of love story between her and a quadriplegic and in the end she lands on her feet. Some sappy parts in it.

"The Nice Guys" - starring Russel Crowe & Ryan Gosling.  A long movie about a couple of detectives trying to solves cases.  In parts in reminded me of Laurel & Hardy.  It was a new comedic role for Russel Crowe and he played the role well.  Also, Ryan Gosling who normally plays the 'boyfriend" type character, plays a clumsy detective.  It had no real highlights but a little entertaining

  "Gods Of Egypt"-Wow! if you like anything Egyptian or Visual Effects then you will like this movie.  I think it was made in England because lots of the actors had an English accent and to me were unknown. I don't understand why they included two aged Aussie actors in the film.  In my opinion some movies are much better and more believable when the actors or unknown.  The movie has two themes.  One where brother fights brother for power over    Egypt and the other theme is a love theme.  The computerised imagery and visual effects are fantastic.  The story holds your attention and I found it to be an exciting movie with a good ending.

"Spotlight" - Well if you went to a Catholic school or a Catholic church this movie will get to you.  It's about discovering there were approximately 600 priests in Boston USA who abused children. The movie will play with your emotions and you may have feelings of disgust to feelings of anger against the church.  The worst thing is the cover up from the hierarchy above.  I believe the highest man in charge of The Catholic Church knew about it because each victim was being paid off to shut up and this type of payment didn't go through the courts. At the end of the movie it showed how prolific this type of abuse was in the world.  Australia and NZ were included.  If you are Catholic you need to see this movie and then you may change your mind about the choice of religion you want to pursue.

"London Has Fallen" - This movie is current to the terrorism that is going on in the world. The movie is exaggerated in that the main story is that the leaders of most of the Western world get assassinated by terrorists. I will let you work out who the terrorists are.  The last man standing is the President of USA and the terrorists idea is to behead him on national TV and internet.  There are hundreds of deaths (shootings) of terrorists, body guards, police, civilians etc. The movie is a very confronting story because there is a certain amount of truth in it on a smaller scale in our world today compared to the movies plot. Terrorism has dominated the world for the past 10 years and is getting bigger and worse.  It seems to be a war concerning religions (faith).  On one hand we have a Western Christian world and on the other hand we have a Middle Eastern non Christian world. The war is not out in the open like previous wars but rather one that uses internet, satellites, mobile phones and eventually bombs and guns.  It makes world travel scary and also the safety of your own country is jeopardised.

 "Eye in the Sky" - This movie was very good.  It is about all the types of CCTV that are used in warfare.  It is the use of satellites and sophisticated cameras to hone in on various sites that are to be bombed.  The movie is about a combined effort of UK & USA soldiers to bomb terrorists in a middle east country.  It's about the decisions that several people have to make before the trigger is pulled.  No one wants to make that decision.  It even goes to the Prime Minister who refers  it back to someone else.  The movie is very current and gives you an inside look at what happens when a target gets bombed.  Great movie.

"Father & Daughter" - starring Russell Crowe.  A feel good movie showing the devotion of a father to his daughter
