MUTE [2018]

Mute takes an old noir concept and throws in into a tumble drier. The basic plot is one we all know: Leo loves woman, woman disappears, Leo looks for woman. Easy enough, but not in the dystopian world of Berlin, where the criminal network…

LIFE [2017]

Directed by Daniel Espinosa Written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Olga Dihovichnaya, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ariyon Bakare An incredibly apt title, Life is much more about the finding of new life on Mars. Almost all decisions that the…

ARRIVAL [2016]

Directed by Denis Villeneuve Written by Eric Heisserer (screenplauy), Ted Chiang (based on the story “Story of Your Life”) Starring: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker Denis Villeneuve continues to show his skill and virtuosity with another film far removed from his last, and…

HALLOWEEN IS HERE!: BLOOD PUNCH [2014]

Directed by Madellaine Paxson Written by Eddie Guzelian Starring: Milo Cawthorne, Olivia Tennet, Ari Boyland Blood Punch is a nice blend of horror and dark comedy… and romance, as the story revolves around a dangerous love-triangle. The plot seems simple enough, but this film…

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL [2016]

Directed by Jeff Nichols Written by Jeff Nichols Starring: Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Jaeden Lieberher, Adam Driver As ever, the rock I live under casts quite the shadow as yet another name I should know of quietly releases their new film. One…

BLINDSIDED BY THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH [1976]

The sad death of David Bowie prompted me to watch this flick, which coincidently was already on my list of Blindspot films to watch. Somehow I have never seen a movie featuring the great man, but even more bizarre is the fact that I…

THE MARTIAN [2015]

Directed by Ridley Scott, Written by Drew Goddard (screenplay), Andy Weir (book) Starring: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover The premise of the film is pretty simple and there is no need to rehash it. Matt…

INFINI [2015]

Directed by Shane Abbess, Written by Shane Abbess and Brian Cachia Starring: Daniel MacPherson, Grace Huang, Luke Hemsworth, Bren Foster, Luke Ford, A new name to me, Shane Abbess directed Gabriel in 2007, a movie that didn’t rake in the cash but gained a cult…

BLINDSIDED BY CHILDREN OF MEN [2006]

BLINDSPOTTED!! What a movie to completely miss for almost a decade! If The City of Lost Children is akin to a Terry Gilliam film after ingesting high quantities of liquid LSD, then this is the opposite. A subdued, sci-fi/dystopian/thriller effort, British accents everywhere –…

CHAPPIE [2015]

Directed by Neill Blomkamp, Written by Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell Starring: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Die Antwoord Apart from being a two-hour long advert for a South African rap-group, this is an extremely confused movie that is a rollercoaster in (almost) all…
