We Have Always Lived In The Castle. Set in America, although filmed in Ireland, it tells the story of two sisters who have lived in isolation with their wheelchair bound uncle in the family mansion since a family tragedy six years earlier. And as if it wasn't bad enough that everyone living in the small village near the mansion hates them, their world is further imperilled when their long cousin Charlie shows up and ingratiates himself with one of the sisters in a bid to get his hands on the family fortune.
Based on the novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson I really enjoyed it. Not for those who don't like a slow moving densely plotted story though.

Totally vouch for this movie, saw it when it first came out on cinema release.
This for me was/is one of Sam Raimi's best and why we need more of his 'magic'
in this genre today.

In 1846 three shipwrecked sailors come ashore on an island that was mysteriously abandoned by most of it's inhabitants, leaving just four very odd residents living on it. Strange doings ensue.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum








John Wick returns to take on......seemingly ...EVERYONE !!


PRAISE: When a person has a 14 million dollar bounty on their head,who wouldnt take a shot at taking the person out even though it's the legendary Wick?
One of the things i have always loved about these movies is the respect for Wick....but in the end It's hey John i have to give it a shot, and it seems like in JWP it doubles up on the aforementioned.
This is a beyond hyper,incredible,action flick !
If you are an action junkie you get your fix and then some.You will likely do an ecstatic dance in your seats.
The film is filled with some of the most creative fights and action sequences i have ever seen.
Hats off to Keanu Reeves who learned all types of fighting styles and how to handle different types of weaponary.
Kudos to all of the choreographers and stunt people who put the relentlessly entertaining scenes together.
Praise to Director Chad Stahelski and the cast that includes:
Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Halle Berry, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, Angelica Huston
Their portrayals of interesting characters that make up The High Table and different assassin factions kept the film involving for me.

PROBLEMS:The film reaches a point when some of the action felt repetitive,but it also blends into something new so thats a minor problem.
With Wick ...well how much can i suspend my disbelief ...how many over the top lickings can he take and keep on ticking?

JWP is one of the best action films i have ever seen,and one of the best of 2019 so far.

Scale of 1-10 an 8

Rocketman












And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone


PRAISE : It's always a great thing when the person on which a biopic is based highly approves of it.
Starting off with Elton John
(Egerton, who fully dedicates himself to the role)entering rehab and traces over his life that included a distant father (Steven Mackintosh).Part time mother (Bryce Dallas Howard my crush on her continues to grow)and an attentive grandmother (Gemma Jones).
From his play by ear genius at the piano,to his longtime writing partnership and
friendship with lyricist Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell also very good) wishy washy relationship with
manager Ray Williams (Charlie Rowe) and of course EJ's decent into the pit of drug and alchohol addiction. it's all set to a musical feel and most of it works because the strength of the cast.
Of course i found myself tapping my foot to old favorites like: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Dont Let The Sun Go Down on Me.

PROBLEMS: Sure there are a lot of visuals and creative dance numbers as characters react in song to a moment of joy or pain.But it took away from moments that could have had a true emotional impact.Plus i think some facts about EJ were quickly touched on that should have been given more time.

I think anyone who is an ultra fan of Elton John will love this
Not completely flawless IMO but highly enjoyable

Scale of 1-10 an 8


BRIGHTBURN






The Omen meets Superman

PRAISE:Pulled in by the story of a loving couple
Tori (Elizabeth Banks) and Kyle Breyer (David Denman) obviously trying to have a child.Faster than you can say When You Wish Upon A Star BOOM something crashes in the woods near their farm and it contains a male baby.
Ten years later the child who's name is Brandon
(Jackson A. Dunn) starts to realize he has powers a realization that will eventually will lead to terror.

There were some cool scares,and suspenseful moments throughout the movie.Including an ultra creepy dark moment that caught me off guard.
The blend of something out of a Stephen King Novel and a comic book worked for me for the most part.
The amount of blood and gore was surprising but no off putting.
All of the actors do fine in their portrayals.I was actually amused by some of the parodic moments.

PROBLEMS: Predictable.A couple of characters were to naive for me.Horrible facts are almost literally hitting them in the face but they seem to brush it off until it's to late !!
The film was far to short for men and in it's briefness crack of underdevelopement start to show.It never reaches the heights i hoped it would reach.

I praise BB for trying something new in a genre that has some staleness around it's edges.
