Shadow in the cloud

I don't know where to start with this movie. It has one of my most favourite actresses playing the main part, however it has to be one of the worst films I've ever seen.
It is so bad it's actually quite amusing.
And it is the biggest load of woke nonsense I've ever seen. The amount of cliches and virtual Signalling is off the charts. However the actual plot is in its self ludicrous. Your hoping it will make some sense in the end but it does not.
I don't want to put any spoilers apart from its an action movie set aboard a world war 2 plane that comes under attack.
Please watch and let me know your thoughts, especially any fans of war movies.
1/ 10.

The Empty Man

I'm not sure if this is a supernatural horror film, or a sci-fi, or a psychological thriller.

I really really like the first 20 minutes of the film. One of the scary scene in that 20 minutes is quite decent. I thought it will be about an urban legend, and I was quite excited. Then it just went overboard with its cult plot and some other ridiculous plots/twists. I felt like watching a two totally different films in one. And it failed miserably.

If they take out that first 20 minutes and release it as a short film, I truly believe it will get better receptions.

What a waste!

Wonder Woman 1984

I would say, the somehow high expectation I had before watching it, it paid off.

It is quite long, maybe a bit too long, but I like the story, the humours, the drama, but perhaps it needs a bit more action especially during the first hour. Talking about action scenes, I really like the car chase scene at the desert, and the duel with Cheetah. One sequence at the start of the film, does give a retro, old-school vibe, which I like.

Some parts of the ending are a bit too dramatic, but its not just the ending really. There are some other parts, throughout the film, feel cheesy as well.

I didn't enjoy the first Wonder Woman and I really didn't get all the hypes it was getting. This sequel, for me, is miles better than the first. It's not great, but I enjoyed it a lot.

{Ed001's Note - I thought I was the only one who didn't like the first one!}

This one isn't that good either, but at least watchable. And its 80s setup is quite nice actually. It was fun, but I won't be watching it again. Maybe my "high expectation" was simply "better than the first".

{Ed001's Note - I would expect pretty much anything to be better than the first, the DC films have been almost entirely terrible. Only the Dark Knight trilogy is quality.}

It's decent but not that great. Worth a watch if you have nothing else.

Soul

Beautiful. Even that word I feel like an understatement. The visuals are the most beautiful I have ever seen in any animated movies. The story is very very sweet and beautiful. One sequence did make me tears my eyes. And the ending did the same as well. This Pixar film, story-wise, is more suited for adults. But the visuals are definitely for all ages. Remarkable!

Greenland

This is just a typical disaster movie, but with a slightly fresher take than other similar films before it. Instead of focusing on the military, or the scientists etc, this one centered on a family on a race to find shelters before a huge comet hits earth. Overall the film is okay. The action scenes are okay. The visual effects aren't that bad but not great. It is pretty much watchable.

Next on my list are Wonder Woman 1984 and Soul. I have set high expectations for these two.

Mosul

If you like war movies, I think you will like this. It's an Iraq War movie, but trust me this is unlike any other Iraq/middle-east war movies. It's even made by Hollywood, produced by the Russo's brothers (yeah the guys who made Captain America and Avengers films), and directed by an American director, but the dialogues are entirely in Arabic. And unlike any other war films, there aren't any American troops that come to save the day in this one.

From start to finish, it is about an Iraqi SWAT team fighting ISIS, on a secret mission that will only be revealed at the end.

I really like this film, and hope you guys will check it out.

Sputnik

A Russian-language sci-fi horror film, about a psychiatrist recruited by a military colonel to assess an astronaut who's just landed from a space mission. It is revealed that there is some sort of a malevolent alien form living in the astronaut's body.

The film is set during the Soviet era in the 80s, and I really like the production designs - the base, the surroundings, the equipments (electronics with huge keyboards) etc - it does feel like its in the 80s.

The visual effects are quite nice too. I would say it's almost Hollywood-class, and the alien design and effects are top-notch.

Two things that I would criticize about the film. The love-interest between the psychiatrist and the astronaut (I think that was happening between these two characters) somehow insufficiently developed. So I'm struggling to actually feel or understand why the psychiatrist willing to risk herself to save the astronaut away from the base. Second is the subtitle. Well, this is not really the film's fault anyway. But the subtitle that I got together with it isn't that accurate (spelling, timing, as well as the sentence structures), and I don't speak any Russian for me to try to understand the dialogue just by its sound.

I really like this film. I like the plot, I love the setup, I really enjoy the horror and the atmosphere, and overall I would say it is kinda fresh, in my opinion. I am definitely recommending this to you guys.

Tenet

I honestly don't know how to start. I can say that I understood only around 5 to 10 percent of it. But I know the core of the story; a madman with a "weapon" that can wipe out the entire world, and an organisation to stop it from happening-with some crazy twists! But my inability to understand the entire plot or the twisted dialogues don't stop me from enjoying the film. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I shouted "wow" to my wife straight away after the credit rolls.

Things started to get crazier when it reaches midway. The time-bending scenes are just mindblowing, and confusing as well but in a very good way. The plots are so twisted but interesting, and with some great visuals and action scenes. And the scores. Wow. Oh I forgot to mention the twist at the end. Wow!

This is the kind of films that really need a second or third viewing for me to understand it fully. With interesting and exciting concept and visuals, I will definitely do that.

One word to sum it up. Insane!

Watched it Saturday and same. wow

An absolute mind bending film but so so good, the sound track is brilliant and plot twists just insane. The seen when there fighting "each other" is mental.

If you like the rest of his films then you will love it.

Shout out to Pattinson and Washington!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2020 11:42:42
Yeah northern. There was some sort of chemistry between Pattinson and Washington. Hence the plot twist at the end was somehow a bit emotional as well.

I just can't get enough of this film. I already watched it twice, and I am planning to watch it again.

I'd love to talk more mate but I don't wanna be the "spoiler" if you know what I mean.

Illang The Wolf Brigade

The film is based on a manga. After series of conflicts, both Koreas are about to unite into one. A terrorist group wants to stop the reunification, and a special unit is formed to stop this terrorist. This special unit is basically a police special force unit with its members wearing metal-platted armours and helmets (some sort like a metal suit). Then there is this secret unit of that Special Unit, which is the Wolf Brigade.

The rest of this review might contain some spoilers, but it's not really a recently-released film so I think it's okay.

I remembered once read a part of the manga many many years ago, and I remember I enjoyed and liked the idea and the premise. However, this film, particularly the story and the dialogues are so messy, and cheezy. The production design seems expensive, and first I thought I might be having some good time with the action scenes. Then the first action scene with the Special Unit, my reaction was literally "is that it?".

The film feels extremely over-long. The romantic plot isn't really interesting at all. When its almost towards the final third of the movie, it is revealed that the main character is actually part of the much feared Wolf Brigade. I was kinda excited when this is revealed, and then while revealing it he is putting on the metal suit and the bad-ass helmet and mask. It was quite a bad-ass scene. Then after that, again, I was like "is that it?". It was basically just him walking, and shooting all the bad guys. He is wearing metal plates all over his body, so all the grenades and bullets and RPGs shot at him didn't harm him at all. Basically that was it. I was hoping for much more than just that. It's a Panzer Cop, so I get it. But maybe some finesse should be added to the battle scene.

One example that comes to my mind. Elysium, the scene where Damon shooting the bad guy with an electric/laser gun in a hallway. It was a simple action scene, but with some over the top violence and slow-mos, the scene turned into quite an interesting action scene.

Some of the bad guys are special ops unit of another enforcement agency, but they don't fight like they are "special" at all.

And the ending, it tries too hard to be emotional, but the ending itself is over-long and meh at the highest level.

I was so disappointed, especially when I know the fact that it is directed by the same director who made "I Saw the Devil", one of my all-time favourites. The story is bad, the actions are ordinary, it's just a boring film.

Come Play

About a boy that is having some sort of speech-delay condition, using phone or tablet to communicate with the parents and at school. And then there's this monster or ghost, that is coming through the screens as a window hunting for lonely person to become its friend, taking them forever to its world. The monster wants this boy, and the parents are doing all they can to protect their son. More or less, that's the story.

I really like the jumpscares and the practical effects of the monster. I really like the sound effects as well. So I can say that the scary scenes are quite decent, scary and nervy. But its the screeplay that is the main problem here, ruining what could be one good horror film. At the very first few minutes, the story already started on the monster. It felt so rushed. There is no time or space given to actually build the story or suspense. Its scary, yes. But its because of the jumpscares and the very good creature effects, not because of the atmosphere or suspense built by the story.

Regardless, the finale and the ending are surprisingly emotional. Thumbs up for that and the effects and the jumpscares, the rest is quite a letdown.
