On the run from an Assassin, a wiry Con-Artist devises a plan to get arrested so he can hide out in the local jail. But when the Assassin shows up and is also booked and placed in a nearby jail cell, a rookie cop gets caught in the cross hairs. The story unfolds from there…
Actress Alexis Louder is absolutely stellar in her role as “Harper”. Actually, she is what keeps the movie interesting. There is action, but it is BLOODY!!
There is a combination of Director’s Guy Richie and Quinton Tarantino influences at work here. But with all of that and the great acting, the story is still lacking. There are many pieces to the puzzle that somehow must have fallen on the cutting room floor.
“Copshop” is only available in Theaters.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
Clint Eastwood plays Mike Milo a former Rodeo Star / washed-up Horse Breeder in this Warner Bros Vehicle.
In 1979 Mike Milo takes on a job from a former Boss to see that his son gets safely across the Mexican Border to Texas. During the trip Mike and his young passenger are forced to take the back roads and they still face a number of challenges along the way. During the journey Mike reflects on his life and finds his own brand of redemption. The story unfolds from there…
While the story is interesting, the movie is slow and go. Clint Eastwood’s character seemed odd in this movie. There are a few bright spots in “Cry Macho”, but the story seems unfinished as if there should have been a better back story to really give the movie more meaning.
At 91 years of age, Clint Eastwood still gets around really good.
“Cry Macho” is at the Box office and also streaming on HBO MAX until Oct 17th.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!
“The Card Counter” was not originally on my “Watch List”, but after seeing several trailers I decided to give it a look.
“The Card Counter” is about revenge, redemption and moral responsibility. The movie is intense and at times difficult to look at because some of the scenes are very grotesque.
Oscar Isaac plays William Tell, a former Military Interrogator who becomes a gambler. He is haunted by events and tasks he participated in during his time in the Military. William meets a woman in a Casino that he becomes attracted to. The story unfolds from there…
The story and the movie are super intense and riveting. While the performances of Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Willem Dafoe and Tye Sheridan are outstanding, the movie was not very entertaining.
Some of the viewers in the cinema I was in got up and left an hour into the movie. Had I not been writing a review; I probably would have left also.
Hopefully in the near future we will see Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish and Willem Dafoe in something more entertaining and light-hearted.
This is a 2 1/2 Star Movie!!
How many times and how many ways can Cinderella be made? Well, another installment is upon us. This one is an Amazon Prime Exclusive. It’s chocked full of famous and well-known actors and actresses and I am sure this was a fun vehicle for them to make.
Unfortunately, it’s not as good as it should be… Don’t get me wrong, they did change it up a bit in several areas. Also, this is primarily a Musical, so most of the dialog is in song. I am just no sure that this version needed to be told. Cinderella is a Classic!! This version tries to bring it into the 21st Century. I don’t feel that is needed. It could have been redone, just keep the Classic style in place.
I did find parts of the movie amusing. I also found parts of the movie boring.
Alas…There was some comic relief. I think children will find this version entertaining. From an Adult’s perspective the screenplay is disjointed.
If you have Amazon Prime, viewing this installment of Cinderella will not cost you a dime. Otherwise, it’s not worth the cost of a regular movie ticket.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
What a nice surprise!! Marvel has expanded its Universe and it could not happen at a better time.
The back story for “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the 10 Rings” is on point! The story makes sense and everything ties together nicely.
Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) must confront his past, a past he thought he had left behind, but it comes and finds him in San Francisco. He is drawn into a web of mystery by an organization known as the Ten Rings. Shang-Chi soon finds out that his Father is behind the mystery and they must confront each other to move forward. The story unfolds from there…
The usual Marvel Universe effects are in play. The movie is chalked full of action, special effects, intrigue and great cinematography.
This is an excellent first installment of Shang-Chi. I can’t wait to see what comes next.
If you are a Marvel Universe fan “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the 10 Rings should not be missed. It’s only in theaters.
This is a 5 Star Movie!!
