I rewatched Crank
Still don't like it but give it more credit than I did previously, that or modern films have been so underwhelming that it felt like a breath of fresh air to watch some good violence.
A man has to get revenge/save himself after being poisoned, is rather violent about it.
If this counts as a film then Helsreach
Not one for warhammer but it was mentioned so I thought I would take a look. Not bad. Liked that one where they boarded a rebel ship more though, even if that was a short.
A small group of space marines is tasked with leading the defence of a city soon to be under siege.
Deadlier than the Male 1967
Some lady assassins attempt to thwart the investigation of one of their hits. Not the best film (if you want spy type hijinks then Mission Impossible from the same year is a far batter bet) but watch it if you want to be able to say you saw a Bulldog Drummond based story when they try rebooting that in a few years.
The Graduate 1967
While the free love movement was taking off elsewhere it was slow to make it to all sectors of US society, set in this backdrop in what might be the last years where it had not reached places then a graduate returns to spend a summer and engages in a few romantic pursuits much to the dismay of various other parties in his life.
Hardcore Henry 2016
Guy wakes up to find himself an enhanced cyborg and on the run/in pursuit of the people that did that to him and have his girlfriend. Filmed entirely in first person. Same people that did the Bad Motherfucker music video
Exit Wounds 2001
Following a political embarrassment a hard as nails cop (Steven Segal in one of his last good roles before his move to Eastern Europe phase) gets demoted to a rough district wherein he has to have a partner and stumbles onto an even bigger case.
A Serious Man
A man goes on a rampage after being pushed too far.
A half human half vampire warrior hunts vampires and attempts to stop one of their plots.
Definitely a short but
The Head Hunter 2018
A legendary monster hunter, still mourning his daughter, still seeks the monster that killed his daughter. Very few lines of dialogue leave this as more of an exercise in worldbuilding, set design and visual storytelling which most of the people giving it low reviews seem to have missed.
Other than that it is all about TV. Do have a whole bunch of them to watch but films are generally so boring compared to long form media. Most of those I had seen before as well.
Just watched for the thousandth time Trainspotting and its folow up T2.
Film that most people think is about drug use. Yes drugs are a big part of the story but at its heart the film is actually about love/friendship and betrayal. It also stars one of my best friends Kelly McDonald.
Set twenty years after the events of the first film the main characters meet up for the first time after the huge betrayal at the end of the first film. All sorts of crazy shit then happens.
It was kinda hard not to put any spoilers but i did my best
I went to see Sonic the Hedgehog on the 16th. I gotta say, they did amazing on it! I'd give it 8 rings out of 10, cause a) it strays far away from the source material (the games & the shows) and instead brings a fresh new take. So throw your knowledge about the sonic lore out the window before seeing this movie.
Also... Sonic flosses in this movie. Twice! There's also a few cringy parts but overall it's an awesome movie.
I watched Sonic the Hedgehog movie with my girlfriend as a Valentine's day gift. I actually quite enjoyed the experience and we had a lovely little date, most of which was just cuddling in the theater and laughing at the movie together. As for the plot, it was a mess but a fun little adventure featuring everyone's favorite furry-bait and a guy I can't remember the name of.
I had never seen it before so I finally decided to see it. This as some said it was controversial and it was also the only classic period Disney film I had not seen.
Having now seen it I am not sure why it is supposed to be controversial, and looking up what was supposed to be made me wonder if we had seen the same film. Didn't tell much of a story in the main part and instead was a bit of a way to bring together some short stories but that is OK. Said short stories were the usual children fluff stories rather than anything fun.
