Silence

This movie by far should have won Best Film of 2016. As a matter of fact, it's one of the best films ever made. It was runner-up for cinematography and should have won that too. It is the true story of two Jesuit priests bringing the message of the Son of God coming to this planet, as Jesus, to Japan in the 17th century. The film shows the deep level of faith of the Japanese had who accepted the truth of the mission of the Christ and what they sacrificed and lost to become "Christians." It ...

Based on the book by a psychologist (Kay Redfield Jamison), Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby play two supposed bi-polar people who meet in a mental institution because their parents put them there because they aren't "normal." Of course the medical institution wants to put names upon starseed and/or indigo children who can't deal with society and the education system. The majority of these people are artists, like the two people in the film who fall in love with each other's artistic and ...

The Tiger: An Old Hunter's Tale

Reviewed on Oct 28 2016

A Korean tiger hunter, who lives in the mountains with his wife and son, is called upon by the invading Japanese army in the 1900s to help hunt the biggest tiger ever, found in the mountains. This film is far superior to many films made in Hollywood. It has spectacular special effects that were better than the wolf film made by Liam Neeson. The special effects with the tiger are outstanding. So are the many messages associated between the wild animals and humans. I would highly recommend this...

Wow! Great acting, great history, cinematography, casting. About the tribes of ancient England at war with each other and the invading Danes. King Alfred is a king of faith, which gives him his Deo power, but the film itself is really about a young warrior by the name of Uhtred of Bebbanburg (played by Alexander Dreymon) who is every woman's heartthrob. He manages to stay alive through many battles. All of it looks real enough and believable. BBC film.

From time to time, I do review films that are still in the theaters, because people either should see them or avoid them. I review the best of those in the theaters, that absolutely should be seen, which is the case in this film, and the worst, that use sophisticated marketing and lies to make the film something more than it is,.

Since racism is in the air of America and there are continued killings of young black men, and even the abuse of young black women, I thought I ...
