The film premiered in Greece yesterday.As always for the past 28 years (since Unforgiven) I had to see it during its opening day. And so did I :)

I liked this one better than his previous "real life" efforts . Not a masterpiece but a solid good movie, with excellent performances from the whole cast .
The man made a -at least- watchable film out of nothing and with no professional actors a couple of years ago (15:17 ...) so this was an easier effort, which makes me wonder if he has become lazy. Apart from the lack of originality of his recently told stories all the films are common suburb dramas. No action here. Even the explotion scene is underplayed , as was the train attack in 15:17 or the plain crash in Sully. Perhaps this style echoes the director's approach . He doesn't care for the act but, for its consequences.

8/10

The Sisters Brothers



The best thing I can say for this one is,that it is boring. I'm a huge fan of the genre and this film has got nothing to offer.A shame...

Cold Pursuit is one of my favorite Liam Neeson movies. It's darkly humorous and very violent. As the end credits started to roll I thought how I wouldn't mind going to see it again sometime here. And in the credits I noticed the name Emmy Rossum, which is a name I recognized because of Mystic River.

This one was great. Really liked its dark humour most of all. Got to search for the original.

I think this may have gotten released Stateside last year but only just opened here..

I was so scared this film might fail.. I'm a huge fan of Laurel & Hardy and grew up with their films on tv, still watch them to this day.
When actors play real  life people, especially those that are so well known its a huge hurdle to shake that
out of your mind and accept the performances, it does happen but quite rare I think.. 
In Stan & Ollie it most definitely does happen. Both Steve Coogan and John C Reilly are both absolutely superb as Laurel & Hardy..

This film mainly takes place during their last ever tour together (with a couple of flashbacks to their prime years) in the UK 1953. Their film career long in the past and now live performance is their only means of income.. They find themselves embarking on a long, hard tour of UK theatres to dwindling crowds, their fame on the decline and Ollie's health not too good..

I absolutely loved this film. Within minutes I was totally buying into the characters and was absorbed in their story.. some of it very funny and some of it very sad..
Basically a love story between two men whos lives and careers had been entined for over 30 years..and now coming to an end.. Also superb performances by Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda as the boys wives who join them on tour and do their best to support their husbands..

Another nice touch was the audience breaking out into spontaneous applause as the end crdits rolled. I can't remember the last time that happened..

Reilly really should get an Oscar nomination if theres any justice..

6/5



My thoughts exactly.
Best movie of the season -the Mule excluded ofcourse -.

The Oscar nominations have been announced, and as expected, “The Mule” did not receive any nominations.

But Black Panther did... >:(

A simple story told with the usual Eastwood style. In this one as close to neorealism as a film can get.
What do we see ? The physical process of a mythical figure which accompanies us for a very long time.
A common answer he usually gives is about what have become of the Callahan character. .. fishing etc .This character was re examined in Gran Torino, as was The Man with No Name in Unforgiven but, what about all the other characters that apparted   the Eastwood persona like Red Stoval or Bronco Billy?  What has become of them?
Eastwood's universe is much more complicated than most people think.
In this film we get our answers .
I really liked the way our hero is presented as an old man. Vulnerable but ,still a MAN.
AKA,  I liked this one because I prefer to watch his movies as part of a whole (mythology ) and not separately.
Apart from that you know what the man said about opinions  :D
