“The Little Things” is a Complicated Crime Thriller with twists and turns and holes in its plot and story.
Denzel Washington plays Joe “Deke” Deacon, an LA Sheriff who at one time was a Detective on the Los Angeles Police force.
Young Women are being murdered in Los Angeles. There is a serial killer on the loose. The cases are piling up and not being solved. While on some Sheriff related business in downtown LA, Joe Deacon comes in contact with some of the old department buddies. Joe is invited to assist on the open cases, so he stays in town, gets a hotel room and starts to review the evidence and the existing crime scenes. The story unfolds from there…
There are several smaller stories in “The Little Things” that should have been further developed. There are parts of the movie that echo Joe Deacon’s past as a Detective and should have been explored a bit more. It could have helped with the overall story and possibly the plot scenario. The movie is complicated and suspenseful. Denzel does the best with what he is given. “The Little Things” is not one of Denzel’s best movies.
If you are a die-hard Denzel fan, then by all means do see “The Little Things” in the theater.
If you have HBO MAX see it for free!
This is a 3 Star Movie!
Thirty Five Years later, “Blade Runner” returns.
It’s the year 2049, a secret that has been buried for a long time is brought into the light by a young blade runner, Officer K (Ryan Gosling). This secret leads Officer K in search of a former blade runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing for over thirty years. The story unfolds from there…
I may be in the minority, because I did not find “Blade Runner 2049” entertaining. It was Dark, Cloudy, Overcast, Dirty and Boring. There was little to no excitement!! The characters were mostly stoic.
However there are some positives, the cinematography is awesome. The special effects are cool and the 3D aspects are on point. The action was sometimes intense, but most of the time just ho-hum.
I just wasn’t able to get into the movie. That doesn’t mean it was bad. You may find that you enjoy it.
This is a 3½ Star Movie!
This is another edition of “Thursday Night at the Movies with The Movie Warrior”.
What was I thinking…DC Comics are not as good as Marvel Comics.
“Suicide Squad” is not entertainment, it’s just plain “Suicide”!!
The villains in this movie are just plain awful. You will be yawning before things really get going.
The movie has a great cast that tries to do something with nothing, but at the end of the day it’s just plain bad. The problem with “Suicide Squad” is the muddled plot. What am I thinking…there was no plot. The movie just rambles. The characters are not fully developed. This leaves you to guess. I did not go to see “Suicide Squad” to guess. There are some humorous moments, but not enough to sink $17 dollars into a ticket.
This is the second time this year we have been treated to a DC Comic on the big screen. The March 2016 Batman vs. Superman was bad enough.
I am giving the movie 2 stars because of the strong cast. Margot Robbie was awesome. Otherwise the movie would get no stars from me.
“Suicide Squad” is best viewed on Cable or Blue-Ray. On second thought just Cable.
This is a 2 Star Movie!
