Dragged Across Concrete

Two detectives' action was leaked to the media. It was deemed as using excessive force, and thus suspended. One of them (Mel Gibson), with the pressure by his family' condition, decided that he needs to do one thing against the law to get what he think he deserves to get. He and his partner (Vince Vaughn) targetted a non local criminal for them to rob, who just came into town, and they thought that this guy is a drug dealer. They were wrong.

I actually don't know how to review this film, but I forced myself to, because I really wanted to recommend this film to you guys.

The film is unique; it was slow, but you can feel the tense. The story revolving these two detectives were quite saddening too, and when you thought that something good might come out, it actually didn't. There was this one really nice humour, and actually you can only tell that it's a humour only after awhile, not during it first came out. i'm not going to tell you what was the joke, but you really really have to watch it to know what I meant here. So this is one of the thing that actually make this film quite "painful", the build-up and its darkness, but they didn't for once make me want to change the channel but to stick with it and watch it until the end.

I am not going to touch too much on the ending, but I think you can guess that this kind of film usually comes with a really good surprise ending. It's not entirely happy ending fairy tale kind of ending, but I'm totally satisfied with it.

A really great film, a hidden gem I would say. I highly recommend this to you guys. Gibson and Vaughn in this were both awesome!

Just watched The Gentlemen.

It's brilliant, best film I have seen for ages.
Little slow first 20 minutes but stick with it.
Colin Farrell is brilliant and steels every scene he is in.

If you like snatch and lock stick you will love this.
9/ 10.

Bad Boys for Life. Entertaining? Watchable. Funny? Yes. Is this any better than the first two? Not for me. The second was loud and brutal, and I was expecting it to be carried on in this third, but it didn't. Michael Bay made stupid Transformers movies, but I strangely missing his way of direction and action for this one. The chemistry between Smith and Lawrence is still strong in this one, but you can tell and feel from the plots and setpieces that they have aged and things feel slower and softer than they used to be. I'm a big fan of the Bad Boys films, but I don't think that this third movie is any better than its predecessors. I'm quite disappointed to be honest, but at least I had some fun.

What do you guys think about It Chapter Two? Its a bit of a mixed feeling for me. I was hoping for it to be scarier, since it's a horror movie obviously. I know the first wasn't scary as much as I hoped, just hoped it will be better for the second. However, I find Chapter Two quite entertaining when it comes to the effects, but it gave the feeling of more of a creature sci-fi film than a horror film (referring to the finale when the Losers face to fight the It). I really enjoyed the humours in it. Some nice flashbacks or scenes when it shows the young Losers, and I really like the ending. Its just that after watching it, it doesn't feel like I just watched a horror movie.

I agree Haizan there's no way I would consider this a horror movie, I left the cinema with mixed feelings, mainly really annoyed as it wasn't what I expected or wanted to see but at the end of the day it was following the book, the CGI was horrible and way over the top imo which ruined the movie for me. The 1st chapter was 10 times better and even that wasn't great. 4/10

I felt a bit disappointed. The Part 1 set it up perfectly, maybe the reason why i had high expectations, but chapter 2 dropped the ball of sorts

Wow. Angel Has Fallen is not that bad. Sometimes we do need this kind of film; kill some hours with lots of nice and big explosions.

Hobbs and Shaw. I really had a mixed feeling after watching it. A part of me enjoyed it; lots ot ludicirous action and some good humour, but yet the sci-fi futuristic concept was totally over-the-top. I can accept it if it's some sort of new story about agents fighting super villains, but this is part of Fast and Furious franchise. I enjoyed it though, but again, this isn't Fast and Furious anymore. I was hoping since Justin Lin is back for the Fast 9, there might not have much futuristic stuffs unlike Hobbs and Shaw and Fast 8. I was wrong. The trailer I just watched clearly shows that they are going to continue with this direction. I think I might enjoy it as well though, and I have to start to accept that the street-racers stealing dvd players are long gone.

Two other movies I watched recently were Rambo Last Blood and the 2019 Hellboy. I'll make it short here; as for Rambo, don't waste your time. Enough said.

For Hellboy, strangely I really like it, and I felt it is much better than del Toro's Hellboy (I never enjoyed both of del Toro's Hellboy films anyway). I felt that Harbour is a much better Hellboy than Perlman. Some of the visuals and effects were quite bad, some were quite nice. Really like the sequence at the final part of the film when Hellboy unleashed giant demons in the city. Baba Yaga was super creepy. The story or plot was quite a mess though, but I still really enjoyed it. But there won't be any sequels that's for sure. What a waste.

Liked Hobbs and Shaw myself, def over the top but I enjoyed it lol. Was curious about Rambo but thought it'd be bad, so I'll give it a miss cheers.

Kinda liked Hellboy myself too and agree with what you say, but I did like Perlman myself

Finished watching two horror movies; Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, and Brightburn.

For Scary Stories, I like how it blended in some light humours in it, ala IT. I was expecting this to be "darker". There weren't much jump scares in it, but that isn't me telling that it wasn't scary. Love the creature effects especially the Jangly Man. I really like the narration at the end of it, it was a nice touch. I'm not sure if it stays true to the books, but I personally find this is a good horror movie.

As for Brightburn, I don't know how to say it but basically I felt a bit disappointed. Some nice gores, but the overall story was a bit meh. I really like the idea, the idea of a baby fell from the sky grew up becomes evil instead of a hero, but it seems didn't really work out as much. The ending tried to tease you that it might be possible that there will be a sequel or a possible franchise, possibly mashing up with a character from the film Super. Overall, I would say this film is a miss despite the potential for it being a hit.

John Wick 3 : Parabellum. The second one disappointed me. However, it helped me set a certain expectation before watching the third. They tried making it "bigger" in the second, and it continues in the third, making it more ridiculous. But I don't mind it much. There are some really good action sequences. I really like the bike chase scene, as well as the finale gunfights and fistfights. The shootout scene with dogs are nice as well. The ending clearly shows that there will be more of John Wick films. Yeah I would admit that in a way I enjoyed John Wick 3. But the first one was very good they ruined it simply by making the sequels, and I still stand by that opinion.
