Movie Review: Dog (2022)

Churape's Dungeon and Stuff

Source

Dogis a road trip movie that makes important commentary on the effects war has on soldiers. It also makes some valid criticism about how America treats its veterans. Although the movie is presented as a comedy, be aware that it is a serious movie.

As far as these road trip movies go, this is one of the better ones. The acting is great, the dog is cute, and the story is fine. What sets this movie apart is its commentary about the effects war has on veterans. Throughout the movie, Briggs and Lulu struggle to live outside of combat. The movie does a great job at showing how hard it is for soldiers to deal with depression, anxiety PTSD in healthy ways. The film is very creative in how it presents these lasting effects. Life seems to move on for everyone else, but the veterans have continued dealing…

Nightmare Alley

Holmes Movies

“Is it a beast or is it a man?”

Guillermo Del Toro is one of those filmmakers I have absolute faith in. I have been a fan of his work for a long time ever since I was a teenager. I watched Hellboy and Blade II religiously and thought Pan’s Labyrinth was a masterpiece. I still wish he made The Hobbit back when Peter Jackson wasn’t initially going to direct what was supposed to be two films. Guillermo Del Toro is a filmmaker with a clear and precise vision. The way he looks at the world and presents it in his films is authentic and fantastical at the same time. The look and the tone of his films is dark, strange, and magical. An imaginative and creative storyteller and more importantly, a lover of cinema. This is something you can clearly see in all his films.

Uncharted Review

KG's Movie Rants

So I watched Uncharted…

I know I’ve learnt this lesson a thousand times and, in all honesty, I’ll probably have to learn it a million times more – never judge a movie by its trailer. I knew I was going to watch this movie but its trailer and some interesting casting choices had me delaying the experience as much as I could. A delay that ultimately proved unnecessary as this movie is a barrel of fun.

Okay, basic plot: Nathan Drake (Tom Holland), a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, is living out a meager experience as a pickpocketing bartender. Drake gets pulled into the world of high-stakes relic hunting when Victor Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) recruits him to search for the lost treasure of the Megallen Expedition. Little does Drake know that Sullivan is more than he seems and is holding on to a secret about Drake’s long-lost brother.

Rudra (Disney+Hotstar) Hindi Web-Series Review: An Unexpected Entertainer

Films Genin

The Ajay Devgn-starrer “Rudra,” directed by Rajesh Mapuskar on Disney+Hotstar, was one of the most anticipated web series of 2022. In this remake of the renowned British series “Luther,” Ajay Devgn makes his digital debut. Rudra, a cop who knows everything, is living in the shadows of his past deeds. The city is once again engulfed in the shadows of crime, and guess what? The rest of the world wants Rudra back! The primary premise of the series is that he is back and is up to save days as killers appear out of nowhere every day. Here’s me describing the series’ positive and negative qualities so you can decide whether or not to watch it on Disney+Hotstar.

The fact that the script is straightforward is what works best for Rudra. They don’t waste any time getting to the point in order to keep it entertaining, and it gets off…

NOPE (2022): New Trailer From Jordan Peele, Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira, Keke Palmer…

The Movie My Life

Isn’t it great when a promising trailer from one of your favourite directors lands when you weren’t expecting it?

The director is Jordan Peele and the movie is Nope. A scary but fun looking horror/mystery/thriller starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun and Barbie Ferreira.

The question going through my mind right now is ‘What kind of terrifying ride, likely involving aliens is this story about to take us on?’ I want to find out. I’m in for the special effects and to discover whether we’ll even get to see the entity causing all the terror.

What’s a bad miracle? They got a word for that?

I just love the above words and the way Kaluuya’s character delivers them, with that perfectly placed pause in the middle.

Michael Wincott, Donna Mills, Terry Notary, Jennifer Lafleur, Brandon Perea, Sophia Coto, Ryan W. Garcia, Andrew Patrick Ralston and…

Blacklight

Real Movie Critic

A poster featuring Liam Neeson holding a gun. The tagline reads, "They're gonna need more men".

Blacklight is a typical action movie, but it may prove Liam Neeson may not have it anymore!!!

Real Rating:

3 Conspiracies

What I Like:

-Acting was good at least

The So So:

-The story had potential, but it started to fall into the action movies, and political conspiracies cliches
-Let alone that some scenes made me laugh unintentionally because of how ridiculous it looks, but there are some action moments that will satisfy the action junkie

What I Didn’t Like:

-The fight scenes really showed Liam Neeson may not have it anymore as an action star, it really looked that bad
-The final shootout scenes were too dark for me to follow, and I hate it when movies do that

Overall:

In the end it is a typical action movie with the political conspiracies cliches. What I saw more is that Liam Neeson as an action star may be dwindling…

Last Night in Soho

Kings movie reviews

“Last Night in Soho” is a 2021 mystery/horror starring Thomasin McKenzie (Old), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Terence Stamp (Superman), and Michael Ajao (Attack the Block).

A country girl moves to London to go to school to be a fashion designer. She rents a flat where a woman from the 60’s was killed. She starts to have visions of the woman, and when she goes to sleep at night, she essentially lives as this woman. She believes the killer is still at large as her own life starts to spiral out of control.

It was hard to get a good read of what this one was about from the trailers, and it didn’t stay long in theaters, so I watched it on Redbox. Both Mckenzie and Taylor-Joy play great roles as the line between reality blurs between them. It hooks you…

TED K (2022)

Movie Reviews from the Dark

Greetings again from the darkness. It’s been more than 25 years since The Unabomber was arrested. The composite sketch of Theodore John Kaczynski wearing sunglasses and a hoodie became an iconic image on its own, and he was the target of the longest and most expensive manhunt in the history of the FBI. There have already been two crime series focused on Kaczynski. Netflix aired “Unabomber: In His Own Words” (2020) and Discovery had “Manhunt: Unabomber” (2017). Do we need to know more about this monster whose bombs killed 3 people and injured 22 others over a 17-year period? Well, writer-director Tony Stone and co-writers Gaddy Davis and John Rosenthal believe so.

A prologue with text details most of what we already know – Kaczynski was a Harvard educated math genius who dropped out of society and moved to the Rocky Mountains in Montana. Following that, the opening sequence sets…
