      Got through a whole bunch of cool (& not so) sh*t on Netflix this easter weekend, mini round up.

      Murder Mystery 2 - Very short film, maybe not as good story wise as the first but just as entertaining.

      The Out Laws - Devine being his ditsy self and Brosnan signing up to anything that'll make him a few bucks, few funny scenes otherwise not worth the watch.

      Reptile - Del Toro as ever nails his role in this 1, as a crime it's pretty bland but as a thriller it certainly delivers.

      The Pale Blue Eye - Like Reptile a pretty solid murder investigation film, although this one is set in the 19th century and moves at a much slower pace and the crime is certainly more intriguing. The twist at the end definitely didn't see coming.

      What Happened to Monday - Definitely my favourite of the bunch, highly entertaining work of art. Very original and a lot of creative writing which leads me to believe it's an underrated film. Rapace is exceptional and leads by example.

      In the Shadow of the Moon - It's an interesting premise and it starts off promisingly enough with the mysterious deaths that appear random at first but around the midway point after she came back the 3rd time round, I'd lost interest.

      Velvet Buzzsaw - Still yet to see Gylenhaal in anything bad where I thought to myself "what the F**k is he doing in this", a slow burner with tonnes of dialogue at the beginning but once it gets going it becomes a fascinating spiritual kind of horror, if you don't listen and do what the devil asks you pay the ultimate price.

      Saw Tetris a few nights ago on Apple+. Defo worth a watch even if you're not a fan/never played the game.

      With the amount of awards a film can be awarded these days it was a bit of a shame to learn it never won any, would've be cool to see Taron pick something up.

      Anatomy of a Fall - wonderfully made and engrossing throughout. Sandra Huller was absolutely brilliant.
      Expertly constructed with the director deliberately steering you one way then the other. Imaginative throughout and superbly acted both by Huller and the boy who played her son. His hollow sounding piano playing was used to great effect, keeping the film off-kilter and taut.

      Yea it's a decent movie that one.

      Waiting for Friday for In the Land of Saints and Sinners.

      Spent a full day watching them shoot scenes for it when I was in Donegal.

      I'm sure it was, must've been the talk of the town.

      Did you on the off chance get to have a little 1 to 1 sit down with Neeson and ask him how long he'd continue acting for.  :f_tongueincheek:

      I re-watched Fearless starring Jeff Bridges and directed by Peter Weir.

      Still as spine chilling and traumatic as the first time I saw it a couple of years back, if not more so. I've never seen uncontrolled grief portrayed so incredible as it was by Rosie Perez in that film. And Jeff Bridges - still the best thing I've seen him in. It's heartbreaking, traumatic and inspiring in equal measure. The plane crash depiction at the end is powerful and haunting. One of those films that questions your own mortality.

      Watched a few more pieces on Apple TV this week.

      Cherry -

      Decent enough watch, fairly slow paced but it's a film that's broken up into different segments.....starts off with as a romance, then ventures into a war before concluding in a crime. The 2 young leads definitely exceed in their roles.

      & Argylle -

      One of those films that's focused on delivering the maximum entertainment for the audience and although it gets a bit silly there are some very cool action scenes. My biggest shame was the lack of screen time between most the cast, Dua Lipa Cena Jackson and especially Cavill who the film is supposed to be centered around.

      Saw it tonight, pretty meh. Too dull in moments and the action part never really gets going until the last half hour, does Neeson ever play a character where he’s not saving a young girl? :P

      Kerry Condon is so hot that I almost shed a few tears in the end despite her playing the bad side.

      The Equalizer 3.
       
      Came out on Sky Cinema today, was gonna wait until maybe Sunday night or the bank holiday to watch, couldn’t. I now know why I couldn’t. Hands down the best of the 3 which is rare for sequels. Denzel aint no joke even at his tender age, always a few steps ahead….leaving bodies behind in his wake, often violently.
       
      To think all this could’ve been avoided had the halfwit wannabe brother took his advice and taken his business elsewhere….NOPE, he didn’t wanna listen!!!!!
       
      But yeah, a definite must see

      Three could be its own standalone movie, wouldn’t even have to be part of the series. My favorite of the three and good to see him reunited with Dakota Fanning who he shared the screen with in Man on Fire (another absolute banger). The Italian backdrop made it a really beautiful film as well.

      Yeah the scenes with Dakota was vintage Denzel with his smart, witty lines.

      Some people thought it went OTT with it's violence but that's what it has to be when the mafia are in town and running rough shots.

      I hope it isn't the final chapter as with Bond/Taken/John Wick etc one of my favourite franchises.

      Naked Gun is getting remade. Liam Neeson is going to play Frank Drebin.

      The Book of Eli

      Can't believe I've only come round to watching this 1 now.....but better (very) late than never I suppose.

      A very simplistic story to follow, whoever holds the book, the last of it's kind, has the power to shape future humanitarian life. The film does a great job in holding our interest till the end......helped by 2 legendary figures in the filming world and Kunis certainly plays more than a bit part role as the supporting cast.

      Also just learned we're about to get TV series based on the film dating way back before so hopefully Boyega embraces that role and does an equally stellar job.

      Enjoyed it even though it meanders a little towards the end.

      Great cinematography and Austin Butler is a bonafide movie star if it ever was in any doubt.
