While visually stunning and featuring great sound design and of course a memorable performance by the lead actress I still feel mother! is lacking in the most important aspect of any film: the story. Aronofsky is trying way too hard to make this a Biblical allegory and honestly it fails miserably at being one. Allegory only works if your representation accurately reflects the very thing you are allegorizing. And everything that mother! tries to allegorize from the story of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, to God himself is so fundamentally wrong that its impossible not to be distracting. His overall goal may have been to convey an environmental message, and I'm all for that, but it gets lost amongst his over ambitious symbolism and clear focus on conveying a parallel message: that God is a bad person for allowing mankind to damage the Earth. The problem is that criticism loses all of its weight when it comes from a place of ignorance. So in reality mother! isn't allegorizing or criticizing The Bible and God as much as it is Aronofsky's own distorted understanding of them.

Director: Gaspar Noé
Main Cast: Karl Glusman, Aomi Muyock, Klara Kristin
Rating: Not Rated
LOVE is a unique film by Gaspar Noé. It's about a man who is unhappy with the life he chose and reminisces about a previous relationship he had when he was younger. The movie immediately starts off with an explicit scene that will not be for everyone. There is strong sexual content throughout that leans on pornographic. It sometimes takes away from the film but also adds to it. It shows how different his lives are. There is also a lot of voice overs that shows what he's thinking. It's well executed. The acting is decent but nothing memorable. Noe also put two characters in the film with his name and it feels cheap. LOVE is not a great film or even a good one. It's subpar and forgettable, but does have a pretty nice poster.
Star Rating: 🌟🌟 1/2

Hiromasa Yonebayashi's "Mary and the Witch's Flower" may be far from a perfect film, but there's no denying that it opens with a bang. Its opening sequence sees a young girl executing a breathless, high-flying escape aboard a broomstick. It's a sign of things to come, as this anime film concocts a magical tale. #AnimatedFeature #filmreview #foreigncircuit #HiromasaYonebayashi #MaryandtheWitch
There have been some insane concoctions that have worked in cinema, and yet, there are those that are clearly abominations. Nothing can hardly prepare you for the absurd plot and violence of “Mom and Dad”, director Brian Taylor’s new film about parental angst percolating beneath the surface of suburban America. His film exalts murder to a frightening degree. What makes it more unbearable is that the victims are children and the murderers are their parents. One scene in particular involves a new born baby in a hospital. It is abhorrent. Enough said. Stuff like this isn’t meant to be funny or exploited. January isn’t over yet and we could have the worst film of 2018.
For this week's episode, we watched Antichrist. Did Jacob find something Isaiah hates more than Moonlight?
So, The Dark Knight is 2008 Crime, Thriller, directed by: Christopher Nolan and stars: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman. Batman faces his most chaotic adversary, The Joker and he puts all of Gotham on the the frontline. This stands as not just one of the greatest superhero films, but films period.
The cast of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy always blows me away and each actor always gives a stellar performance. Ledger is phenomenal as The Joker. A cleverly written and performed not villain, but character. All the action scenes are intense. The plot is so cleverly written as a Thriller and not a superhero film. The film flows so well and the ending always gives me goosebumps.
If I had a problem it would be that this doesn't feel like a Batman film. Just a Crime Thriller with Batman characters. But that isn't a terrible thing.
In the end, this is a fantastic film that doesn't slow down full of amazing performances. I'll give The Dark Knight an A+

Can you believe today marks 10 years since we lost Heath Ledger? Time has flown, but his legacy lives on. Vale, Heath.
John Wick - 82% - Mike
After getting put on Netflix, I've finally had a chance to watch John Wick!
For an action movie, this movie is pretty fucking solid.
The action scenes are top notch, in choreography, in acting and in cinematography - it hits every mark you could want.
Keane is his usual brilliant self, almost all of his emotion shown subtly in his face, especially some of the earlier scenes (which I imagine are so impactful due to Keanu's own experiences with such events), all of the supporting cast work incredibly well too - Alfie Allen (Reek/Theon from GoT) plays a great snooty punk and obviously the beagle pup was absolutely adorable!
The movie has its humourous moments, but what seems to really stand-out is the delivery of the action scenes - the non-forgiving brutality of it, without need for a gore-fest.
So if you fancy switching your brain off for 100 minutes and want to see some assholes get what's coming to them, chuck on Netflix and enjoy yo'self!

I’m sure everybody knows what this movie is about by now. It's #GroundhogDay
meets slasher #mystery
. A college girl ends up being #murdered
by a #maskedman
on the night of her birthday and finds herself waking up to #relive
the day over and over. I didn’t have too much hope for Happy Death Day when I saw the trailers for it. It looked like it would just be annoying but I was surprisingly mistaken! I really had fun with this one. It was nothing substantial but I couldn’t find many reasons at all why I didn’t like it. We’ve seen thousands of slasher films and a couple of day-on-repeat movies but never one where they mix the two. Happy Death Day was effective and had its #funny
moments. Roth plays the lead role well, and so does the rest of the cast. The whole movie is a #wild
ride with funny characters and interesting #plottwists
. If you are looking for 90 minutes of entertainment, Happy Death Day will surely do it for you! The only issue I had was the lack of explanation as to why she keeps reliving this day over and over. If I missed it by chance, let me know!
10 years ago we lost the amazing Heath Ledger. Tonight we’re watching The Dark Knight in his honor to celebrate his incredible performance as The Joker.
Den of Thieves - 2018 (71%) - Crime/Drama/Thriller
Nick O'Brien is the leader of the Sheriffs Department in Los Angeles, he's not like your regular Sheriff, he's an alcholic. However that doesn't make him a bad one surprisingly he's very determined and doesn't give up. He soon crosses paths with Ray Merrimen an ex prisoner who who has just been released. Ray has set up a crew to pull the biggest heist, in a bank that has a record of 56 failed attempts. Easy enough right?
This is quite a good movie it's better then anticipated. I found some scenes very funny and actually made me smile like an idiot to myself (thank god no one saw me). I loved Gerard Butler in this, he plays his alcoholic self destructive character very well. The only flaw in the movie was the ending, i was disappointed as i was expecting a great twist but in the end i was left with a non original predictable one. But lets not dwell on the negative because the positive is that everyone loves a good heist movie and this is definitely a great one.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a great funny movie to watch. It's brilliant and is suited for both men and women.
"Well done and emotionally charged ride"

Freaks of Nature 2015. Rating 7.5/10
I really liked this film, I was very enjoyable, funny and Zombies what else could you ask for.
I kinda like the idea of Humans, Zombies and Vampires being friends going to school acting like everything is normal until Aliens show up and ruin everything. #freaksofnature #moviereview #filmreview #comedy #horror #zombies #vampires #aliens
[NEW REVIEW] "The Grand Budapest Hotel" (2014) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ .
Rating: R: 12
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Runtime: 99 minutes .
This was one of the first movies I watched with my roommate in college when I was first getting to know her. It was her favourite film she had informed me and so we made plans to watch it. Popcorn, Pepsi, lights dimmed – the proper cinema experience in the comfort of our own college apartment. I’m glad I watched this film for the first time with her – the experience was all the more fun, and the laughs all the more plenty.
Wes Anderson is the man. As per his usual directing style, each scene was timed and structured precisely to aide symmetry. The vibrant colours were a plenty and made the whole film all the more beautiful. This being one of the aspects of the film I loved so much while viewing. A pat on the back for the production design crew! Each shot was something to marvel at in itself. He’s a talented and incredibly distinct director.
Ralph Fiennes was my favourite part of this whole movie though. He made me laugh so much. His character was so quirky and so well rounded and established. It worked so well with the lively pace of the film – never a dull moment! By far one of Ralph Fiennes best performances. Enormously entertaining.
The character of Zero is so sweet. A wonderful lead. And the friendship between him and M. Gustave was a joy to watch develop.
The poster and cover of the DVD of the hotel itself (a model sized version fashioned since the place itself doesn’t actually exist) is absolutely beautiful.
This is an absolutely wonderful film, extremely entertaining and enjoyable humours watch. A must-see. Immediately if not done so already!

"The End of the F***ing World" - Season 1 from the year 2017
(8 episodes, comedy drama)
The 17-year-old James, who is convinced he's a psychopath, has decided it's time to graduate from killing animals to something bigger -- and he already has a target in mind. Alyssa, the embodiment of existential angst, feels like she doesn't fit in at her new school despite being quite popular. Together, they get caught up on a trail of violent events that grow increasingly more ominous as their quest progresses.
After watching the trailer yesterday, I needed to watch this show immediately and because of its short running time from only 160 minutes, I managed to finished in just one evening.
I f***ing love this show!
The plot is both hilarious and disturbing. It is quick, well paced and wasn't boring for one single minute.
The protagonist James and Alyssa, played by Jessica Barden and Alex Lawther, are likable and interesting character with great chemistry.
After finishing this, I could rewatch it right away.
I just wished the show would have more episodes and so I really hope this show gets a second season!
All in all, I would recommend this show to people who like weird stories about coming of age.

Tonight's movie on our @cineworld
Unlimited checklist was Coco , the latest Disney Pixar creation! We've been looking forward to this for months! It was fun, colourful and something slightly different to anything done before, full of culture and emotion. A little predictable (but it is technically a kid's movie after all, so can forgive that!). ❤️ Lovely underlying story on the importance of family, and remembering those we love, even after they're no longer with us. A great message on the value of passing on stories of our families to the next generations...and the importance of going after our own hopes and dreams! ❤️ If you want a light hearted watch, and you enjoy animated movies (amazing animation!), I'd recommend this one for you! ❤️ (Only big disappointment was no Pixar short at the beginning!) #cineworld #cineworldunlimited #unlimitedmovies #cinemadate #moviereview #filmreview #lifeattarget #blogger #swblogger #coco
Eye For Film gave @americanfolkmovie
4.5 out of 5 stars! Read the full review at eyeforfilm.co.uk. American Folk is in theaters and on demand January 26th.
Coco: Pixar have made another touching/heartfelt film. Coco is a family centric delight focusing on Miguel who adores music and is in the search to bring his family together.
We get to learn about The Mexican festival The day of the dead - An important message to never forget those in life or in death and to rejoice in there memories.
The Animation is definitely the best I have seen its a very beautiful film with so much warmth, passion and colour.
It has a Mexican heart which beats to the lovely melody of guitars and is well Orchestrated by Michael Giacchino. I love film that features music in any journey either in the foreground or background. I loved Remember Me and Un Poco Loco. Fantastic songs! I'll be humming the tune away for hours ☺
It's a perfect family film for everyone that's celebrates life in any shape or form. It's unmissable.
5 stars - ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
