What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

Recommended Posts

Blue Story [2019]
A UK London gangster movie hums along just right despite some of the cliches with a good soundtrack, performances and poetic rapping dialogue. Plenty of senseless violence that had it pulled from screens initially in UK, but a worthy work along the lines of Boyz N The Hood.

The Whistlers [2019]
A crime drama with a subtle sense of dark humor, confident old-style storytelling and zesty performances make this one of the better films out of Europe as of late, when a Romanian police officer plays both sides of the law chasing a hidden stash of money.

Capone (2020)

I liked this, a lot, seems like it's getting a mixed reception, but then it's new.

Director, Writer: Josh Trank

Stars:  Tom Hardy, Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon 

Once the most feared bootlegger of Chicago, Al Capone is sent to prison for tax evasion. At the age of 40, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, he is released after being deemed no longer a threat, his mind rotting from neurosyphilis.

Now retired with his family in Palm Island, Florida, Capone remains under federal watch, as they think he may be faking his insanity. Forced to sell many of his belongings to pay his debts, Capone begins to have hallucinations and loses control of his motor functions. He acknowledges that he hid $10 million, although he cannot remember where it is.

Brassic [2020 TV series season 2]
Second installment about a group of hard up UK northerners who find dubious ways of making a living. Not quite up to the first season standard but still worth a laugh for its childish gross out humor woven into the slapstick story-line.

T,was funny, being a hard up Northerner with dubious ways of making a living meeself reminded me of life 30 Years ago.

A major error in the Shows title, Brassic is Cockney Rhyming Slang, “Borassic Lint” Skint, which I presume it refers to.

Rhyming Slang is not used Oop Norf and in Lancashire Brassic is slang for very cold, taken from “cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey”

Arkansas (2020)

Starts a little slow, given that I don't expect much from Liam Hemsworth, then it get's better, all in all a satisfying and interesting flick.

Kyle and Swin live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin named Frog, whom they've never met. But when a deal goes horribly wrong, the consequences are deadly.

 Liam Hemsworth, Vince Vaughn, Clark Duke et al

Blood and Money (2020)

Another, that at first appears a little slow, but is a good movie. I won't inject any spoilers, except to say, watch it all the way to the end.

A retired veteran, hunting in the snow in Northern Maine...

Tom Berenger, Kristen Hager

The End Of The F***ing World [2019 TV series Season 02]
A second season in 8 parts of the black comedy follows further the exploits of a young couple being stalked by new woman whose boyfriend they previously killed. Not as fast paced as season#1.

The Lunchbox [2013]
A revisit to one of the best films starring Irffan Kahn who passed away earlier this year at 53, this is a wonderfully directed Indian drama about what happens when the Mumbai lunch box delivery service gets repeatedly sent to the wrong person and resultant friendship and dreams that develop between the younger frustrated cook and the retiring widower accountant, only to be consumed by the reality. Superb film making worth seeing.

Cold War [2018]
Award winning Polish film set in a stark square frame black and white in post 2nd World War Poland and France explores the difficult romance between a musical director and a talented singer. Very well crafted piece of cinema.
