Good Time

Reviewed on Mar 15 2018

This film should have been up for an Academy Award for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. It wouldn't have been nominated for Best Picture because of its theme, but wow was this a great film. The people on the streets in the neighborhood seemed very real, and you could hardly tell if they were actors or real street people. It reminded me of my old neighborhood of uptown 5th Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You would meet characters like the two brothers and all the others in the film. ...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Reviewed on Jul 28 2017

I did not see Valerian, but I saw the trailer. When are they going to stop making these wonderful special effects movies and spending millions of dollars and put teeny-boppers in as the stars? I will not go to see it because of this. What happened to men and women as actors? This to me would make a movie much more credible. And not even in the future, nor now, will the military put teeny-boppers in important positions, like this movie did with the two stars, called Major Valerian ...

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 ...

Touched With Fire

Reviewed on Feb 18 2017

Written and directed by Paul Dalio and inspired by his struggles overcoming "bipolar", and 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 ...

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...

The Last Kingdom

Reviewed on Aug 05 2016

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.

Captain Fantastic

Reviewed on Aug 05 2016

Viggo Mortensen plays Ben, the father of six children, who is a rugged outdoorsman and anti-system, super smart individualist who home-schools his children with his wife in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. His wife's father, played by Frank Langella, is wealthy and disagrees with Ben's raising of the children and actually tries to take the children from him when Ben's wife dies, at a very young age, from a disease. The family is not vegetarian, and they do kill their own meat to ...
