Boasting some stunning visuals, sporadic bouts of violence and at times unbearable tension. The hugely impressive Sicario from Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) is a hard hitting thriller of a film that delves into the morality of the proxy wars being waged by US intelligence agencies against drug cartels in Mexico and the human effects on both sides of the border.
Son of Saul tells the story of a Hungarian group of Jewish prisoners named the “Sonderkommando” who are forced to assist the Nazis in the large scale extermination.
Arthur (Hill) and Martha (McKenna) are facing financial ruin after Arthur discovers his former employers have been liquidated and as a result no longer receives his pension.
I feel like this film would definitely divide opinion. Superficially, it’s got immature humour in spades, which has the potential to put a lot of people off, but if you give it a chance then it develops into an interesting story.
Child 44 is not the movie it could have been. It has the story (based on the best-selling novel by Tom Rob Smith) It has the talent in Hardy, Oldman and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus) and even supporting actors Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and Paddy Considine (Dead Mans Shoes (2004), all the right ingredients are there for a great movie. Unfortunately the movie isn’t engaging enough and the subplot distracts the audience from the main plot about solving a serial killer case.
An enthralling, mismatched buddy, action comedy from Shane Black. The Nice Guys is set in the seedy, underbelly of 1977, Los Angeles and follows the bungling antics of Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and the slightly more competent Jackson ‘Jack’ Healy, as they attempt to solve the mystery of a pornstar’s death and also track down the elusive Amelia Kuttner (Margaret Qualley), a nutty activist whose disappearance may provide some answers.
