Mother![2017]

Barely watchable insane thriller, more art house than substance, about a tormented poet in his new home he shares with his latest young wife and countless other visitors he invites.

Revenge (2017) - IMDB - Never take your mistress on an annual guys' getaway, especially one devoted to hunting - a violent lesson for three wealthy married men.

 

I liked this, but you'll have to believe that a petite hottie, can do all the war soldier stuff this one can, after being impaled on a tree. But, pull the, 'suspension of disbelief' lever and enjoy the blood and gore.

 

Worth a watch.

The Shape Of Water [2017]

 

An aquatic R rated equivalent of Beauty And The Beast is interesting for its unusual theme and performances but overall is more style than any substance. Available in Dvd screener format.

 

Watched this - The Shape of Water (2017) - as Palatkik says, style, everything is a subdued Teal colour. Not a bad movie, but neither is it a stand out. Wet. Worth a watch.

Samson (2018) - the Biblical tale, with Delilah and everything, a lot of smoting going on, verily with the Jawbone of an Ass, no less. Quite a placid watch, not at all proselytizing in theme, just a good 'ol story of circa 3,000 years ago. Good if you don't know the story. Not bad if you do.

There is an older movie called Revenge also. It stars Anthony Quinn and Kevin Costner. I enjoyed it.

All The Money In The World [2017]

Paul Getty kidnapping caper, of interest for fully deleting the lead role of Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer following the former's sex impropriety allegations. A drawn out movie with rigid acting other than that of Plummers who betters the rest by far and only stepped in at the last minute.

 

saw this last evening - not bad, worth a watch

What Lies Upstream

 

****

 

In this scandalous political thriller, an investigation into a chemical spill spirals into an indictment of the entire system meant to protect drinking water, revealing cover-ups at the highest levels of government.

Fahrenheit 451 (2018) - If you don't know the story, this is a good version of it.

 

an updating of the Ray Bradbury tale - actually quite good I reckon, in that it's been modernised to show social media and a dumbed down version at that.

 

Fairly Hollywood, but worth a watch. Michael Shannon, does a lot of bad guys, and is good as a bad guy in this.

 

It is tempting to draw a parallel between this movie and the present USA, but I'll leave it for the viewer to think about.

King Lear (2018 TV)

 

A modern day British adaption of the Shakespearean classic, worth watching to see the skills of the cast put to wonders.
