Cold Pursuit

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/22/19
Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold and Darkly Fun

Liam Neeson has said that Cold Pursuit would be his last action movie. I don't see how that's possible when you can have as much fun as he has - whether in Taken or The Grey or Non-Stop or, yes, Cold Pursuit. This is a film that revels in its absurdity but doesn't shy away from violence. I mean, the main character is named Coxman, and yes, that name is the butt of jokes as the movie goes on.

Neeson is a humble snow plow driver, Nels Coxman, for a Denver resort city who has just been named …

Dragged Across Concrete

Indyfreak - wrote on 05/16/19
Slow nasty cop flick that lives up to its title.

Director S. Craig Zahler's gritty and hardboiled crime drama depicts Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn as two suspended cops deciding to get rich at the criminal underworld's expense. Zahler's camerawork and direction feels very much like Michael Mann or David Mamet. The characters swap off-color jokes before waxing philosophically for five minutes.
The mood is nihilistic and the action is often grisly bone crunching stuff. But given the film's length, and Zahler's penchant for speechifying, it …

Glass

ShyStylish and ambitious but w/o a payoff.

M. Night Shyamalan completes his trilogy of cult superhero-thrillers with the unsatisfying but undeniably unconventional final installment GLASS.
Named after Samuel L. Jackson's returning villain Elijah Price, the film follows his reunion with the invulnerable David Dunn (Willis) and the monstrous Kevin Wendell Crumb (McAvoy) in a mental asylum. Their shared predicament becomes evident that the staff (led by a stoic Sarah Paulson) have an ulterior agenda so they resolve to escape. …

Escape Room (2019)

It was as exciting as a real “Escape room” visit.

Be the first to escape our most immersive rooms yet
and win $10,000.

Does coincidence exist? I’m starting to believe it. Coincidentally, I had just seen this movie and a few days later my wife receives a birthday present from her brother. An entrance ticket for an Escape Room. My first reaction was “Do I really have to go too?” That was meant as a joke because I don’t think we’ll experience such situations as in the movie “Escape room“. I’ve done two of those escape rooms already (one …

Replicas

Replicas Has One Too Many Copies

If only Keanu Reeves could re-enter The Matrix. Replicas throws out a lot of big ideas - including cloning humans and making a copy of the human mind and re-mapping it into an artificial life-form. And while all this should make for a compelling story, most of the technology is glossed over in favor of a story in which Will Foster (Reeves) our "hero" goes against every ethical and moral code in order to maybe bring back (most) of his family after a car accident.

Pushing boundaries …

Destroyer (2018)

Maybe a nice piece of work but mediocre as well

What’s up?
Silas is back.

Obviously, the most striking element of this film is the transformation of Nicole Kidman. Her weathered, unkempt appearance with black-rimmed eyes, smudged skin, and a tousled haircut indicate an unhealthy lifestyle and a stubborn addiction. It soon becomes clear that the bottle has become her closest friend. Normally Nicole Kidman looks so snappy and flashy in other films. Here’s she’s shabby and unrecognizable. The past took a heavy toll on her during an …

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Nolane - wrote on 03/03/19

A terrific final film to the best children's trilogy of all time, "How To Train Your Dragon: Hidden World" could not be any better. Good story, some fun humor, epic moments and some of the best CGI animation of all time. Most importantly, packs an emotional punch. A great movie not to be missed on the big screen.

Not 'GOTTI' bad, but not very good. Just forgettable, which I guess is worst.

Glass - Review

“This was an origin story the whole time”.

Eastrail 177 trilogy, a franchise we didn’t expect to exist or needed, but M. Night Shyamalan surprise us once again with his twist and turns.

After the unexpected hit of ‘Split’, people were warming up for Shyamalan’s follow up ‘Glass’, and the return of familiar faces like David Dunn, Kevin and Mr. Glass himself. By continuing with the grounded approach towards superheroes while making the fantasy aspects implanted into reality. And of course …
