Mission Impossible: Fallout might be the best of the series. O0 I think it's about time I rewatch the whole series.

Rampage



The kids loved it but, nothing more.

Rampage was fun. I remember playing the video game years ago, so I was fascinated with it being made into a movie. I loved the way the villain was taken care of in it! ;D

I saw "Three Identical Strangers," which is a documentary about three twins that were separated at birth and did not know that the others existed until they were college-aged. The reasons that they were separated is quite shocking and the documentary provokes a thought-provoking discussion on nature v. nurture.

I also saw "Searching," which was a film that is almost entirely made with what looks like hand-held cameras. It works quite well as a thriller, which is surprising, as most of the movie is viewed through the computer screen. The plot is about a father trying to find his missing daughter and his attempts to aid in the investigation of what may have happened to her and why.

Since these are not well known movies, I'm linking to the trailers for both of these. For those that are interested in the documentary but want to save some money, I heard that CNN is planning on showing "Three Identical Strangers" on their channel in January:

I'm not familiar with the other film, but that "Peppermint" movie looked terrible to me and Jennifer Garner seemed to be an odd choice for that type of film. Why did you like it?

The Predator



This could have become really ridiculous but, selfparodies well enough in order to be fun (nothing more than that though)

It was just a good, basic action film.  Nothing spectacular, but entertaining enough.

I'm looking forward to seeing The Predator soon (I really like the poster antonis posted). I've enjoyed all the Predator movies.

Wow, I havenít gone out of my way to see a horror movie since Hannibal in 2001 and prior to that, Halloween 5 in 1989.  Iím not a fan of the genre, but made an exception for my smokiní hot date that night in the 80ís.  As for Hannibal, Iíd gone to check it out with my then brother-in-law for a couple of reasons.  First, we both enjoyed Silence Of The Lambs very much and second, my then wife and I had been to a church in Italy that appears in the film.  It was exciting to recognize it on the big screen and say, ďHey! I was there!Ē

In one of the early scenes, Hannibal slices open one of his victims and his blood and guts are shown splashing down to the street below, from high above a balcony.  I couldnít stop laughing!  I was cracking up into the next scene, thinking I might be asked to leave. 

So, aside from it not being a preferred movie genre, my reaction to that scene sealed my fate with respect to seeing horror films.  ...Until now.

For the past few years ...hmm, since experiencing separation and then divorce, along with some other unpleasant situations, Iíve considered revisiting the genre on the big screen. 

As it turns out, The Nun was a perfect choice.  I did react as I had anticipated, but didnít laugh so loud as to disrupt the other patrons.  My ex-wifeís Uncle Andy was curious, too and we decided to see it last night.  We both enjoyed it very much.  It wasnít an outrageously silly, ridiculous scare fest but there was plenty of blood and gore.  Just enough to whet my appetite for more. 

Not sure Iíll be seeing a lot in the upcoming months, but I may give the latest Halloween film a try.  If youíre into these kinds of films, I recommend The Nun.

Any Laurel and Hardy fans out there ?
I don't think this will go on general release until next year but from the trailer it looks very good..



Set near the end of their career's and detailing the duo's last tour of England in the early 50's..
Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel and John C Reilly as Oliver Hardy..

Starring Nicolas cage and directed by Panos Cosmatos



Definitely not for the squeamish..
Directed by the son of Rambo First Blood pt 2 directer George P Cosmatos

Kind of in the spirit of 70's exploitation movies.. Cage is back to his crazed best as he takes on
a group of drug addled demon bikers..  Great fun but full on..

I finally caught up with this film and really enjoyed it. It was the first Star Wars film I hadn't seen in a cinema and I'm disappoionted I missed it then. Some of the action sequences were really well done, especially the train on the snowy mountains.

4/5.
