I have to disagree with you Roger. Yes it's a harrowing film, but it's a story that we need to know about. Instead of facing the horrific aftermath of war and supporting the people who fought it for us, we prefer to indulge in stupid platitudes and pointless commemorations.

I already know that people suffer and die in war. I don't really see a successful end game for this war in Iraq. I know its going to get worse when Iran starts to flex its muscles.

I don't want to spend my entertainment time watching anymore of this suffering. I pay my taxes and would pay more to support the troops. However, I would be like the others who stayed away from this film at the theaters.

Hell, it depressed me so much I didn't even look for nude pics of Haley Bennett until the next day. http://www.google.com/search?newwin...24.SbwNwgaJi2A

She is not nude in the movie - and she has no thread here?

Brain Dead (1990)



Trailer

Dr. Rex Martin (Bill Pullman), a neurosurgeon studying brain malfunctions that lead to various mental illnesses, is asked by his old friend Jim Reston (Bill Paxton), now a top manager for the Eunice corporation, to help him reach the mind of John Halsey (Bud Cort), a once great mathematician who went mad and killed his family. Halsey used to work on a top secret project at Eunice but erased a part of the equation without which the project cannot be completed. Eunice needs the numbers either retrieved or Halsey's mind completely erased to eliminate the risk of those numbers falling into the hands of a competitor. But right after Rex Martin begins with the procedure, he is drawn into the same paranoia as Halsey.

An overlooked little horror gem, although the horror label may not do it much justice. No matter how stupid this choice of film title may sound, Brain Dead is a rather gripping psychological thriller and a real late night mindfuck treat. The main protagonist jumps from one mental state to another until he no longer knows what's real. But it's not Rex Martin who loses his grip on reality. The viewer is pulled into it as well and while some people may hate being left in the dark, I really enjoyed the psycho trip.

Mail Order Monster. All I'll say is don't waste 89 minutes of your life. And RT gave it a 100% rating...go figure.

Cool

The Last Boy





Yet another post-apocalyptic tale from the same vein as The Quiet Place or The Happening. This one's a UK effort from 3-movie director Perry Bhandal. While it lacks the stimulus of The Quiet Place or the she-bang of one of those zombie deals, The Last Boy gives us innocence. It gives us hope. It gives us emotion. But it also gives us stale performances, unanswered questions, and a big, scratchy head at the end. Well...except for Luke Goss, whose performance here as an Army veteran was solid. I liked the toned-down loveliness of this, but it leaves way too many holes and comes off a bit sappy at the close. Still, it's a refreshing sip away from marauding biker gangs and giant talking trees. I liked it fine...with reservations. The wind that turns people to pillars of salt reminded me too much of that old Star Trek The Motion Picture scene where the energy beam boards the ship and takes away that bald chick. That was kinda cool. C+

Nekros (2015)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4614552/


A weird story set on a small Greek island, at a Greek themed party for the customers of a small travel agent a stranger crashes in and collapses bringing the food down with him
They fetch a Doctor who happens to be staying nearby who although he is not a medical Doc still manages to diagnose the man died of plague.

The tourists are quarantined on the island but after a few days they start to die in grisly ways, tour rep Ellie keeps seeing the bodies but they have always gone whenever she finds someone to tell.

There is a strange pan like figure seen mainly in the shadows but it seems pretty clear in close-up that there is a more Earthbound source of evil.

The General (1998)



Trailer

Dublin crime boss Martin Cahill (Brendan Gleeson) is somewhat of a folk hero, an Irish Robin Hood. The Garda Síochána, the Irish police, is pushing Cahill to move to a more fancy place but he refuses to leave the working class neighbourhood where he grew up. Cahill is a notorious extortionist who's pulled off some legendary heists and he's inspector Ned Kenny's (Jon Voight) biggest nightmare. Kenny, although sympathetic to Cahill, is also a man who's determined to bring him down or "save him from himself". But that proves rather difficult after Cahill decides to sell his latest prize, a couple of expensive paintings, to the Ulster Volunteer Force because the IRA is clearly not amused.

Directed by John Boorman, who may probably be best known for Point Blank with Lee Marvin, The General may be one of the best crime films of the 90s, also because it's based on a true story. This theatrical reproduction of the events that would ultimately lead to Martin Cahill's downfall is a modern prime example in realism as it successfully combines the elements of crime and the social environment in which it happens. I have seen a couple of films with Brendan Gleeson but he has never been this good. At times The General feels more like a documentary than a feature films. It's that real.

THE UPSIDE






Through a job an unlikely friendship forms between two men who couldnt be more different.




PRAISE: I applaud Kevin Hart as Dell Scott for not only taking on a more serious role but what he brings to the table shaping a character that i started to root for from the first frames of the film to the end.I wanted him to reddeem himself from his faults that are fleshed out in the film
Bryan Cranston was great as the rich Phillip Lacasse.Portraying a quadriplegic,it's a tough physical performance in which Cranston can only move his head and neck.
The chemistry between Hart and Cranston is terrific.
Nicole Kidman is in and out of the film as Lacasse's loyal secretary,she's such a good actress even her brief moments shine.
There is good humor throughout,with dramatic moments also.
One scene was beyond moving which mainly plays out through the eyes ,unease and glances from the characters.

PROBLEMS: Some over done moments. Some comedic moments were a bit drawn out and took me out of the film.Some scenes felt forced.


This is Kevin Hart's best role IMO .He wasnt obnoxious or over the top.The performances of the key players uplift the film and i was left with something very moving.

A very good movie to start 2019 with

Scale of 1-10 an 8



ESCAPE ROOM






Escape Rooms have become so popular we may be witnessing the birth of a new film series....or just SAW light


PRAISE:
Escape Room starts off well enough,as the players are introduced.The introvert Zoey (Taylor Russell) only time for business Jason (Jay Ellis),and sidelined by vice Ben (Logan Miller).
The aforementioned are focused on the most which was cool and other players are introduced later Amanda (Deborah Ann Woll), an army vet suffering from PTSD; Mike (Tyler Labine), a truck driver; and Danny (Nik Dodani)
The various rooms were fun,each more elaborate and difficult to get out of than the last.
Some suspenseful moments are scattered throughout the first half.


PROBLEMS:
There wasnt enough to completely engage me.I was only partially pulled in.It didnt help that one scene in the beginning revealed a bit to much.
Some of the acting was lukewarm at best.It felt like i was watching a SAW film with far less gore.Some of the SFX looked bland and cheap.The multiple endings were lame and just an explanation of what came before that i have seen in about 5 other films.


Wait for cable for some fun watching it at home with friends or family,not really worth the trip to a theatre.


Scale of 1-10 a 4½

Anna and the Apocalypse. Oh noes the Zombie Apocalypse has come to the sleepy town of Little Haven...and at Christmas Time! It's up to Anna and her friends to save the day in an all dancing, all singing, hockey stick whacking musical extravaganza. I'm still chuckling just thinking about it. Five thumbs up.

Exclamation

4 movies I've seen in the past 2 weeks.



^^^ the 1956 original with Robert Wagner as a major creep that manipulate women; not the crappy 1991's remake with Sean Young and Matt Dillon.

Released in a time when girls who get pregnant out of wedlock were disowned by their fathers and shunned by society; the words pregnant and pregnancy was not allowed to be said in the movie nor in any of the film's advertisements.



^^^ This 1962 film is one of the first post nuclear war survival movies (with or without zombies).



^^^ a teenage movie that tries too hard to also be an adult drama and it just doesn't ever find its footing when it feels like 2 separate disjointed movies being thrown in your face at the same time.



^^^ while I was watching this, I kept getting the harrowing feeling this is Clint's final screen appearance - he is getting up there in age.
