Last Night’s Movies 24.07.2017


Soooo.. it was a long night, I did get started early, straight in and onto Law(n) and Order, I’m slowly working through the Boxset, no idea why I find it so thrilling lately but I do…

So after that conundrum I got back to the movies..


I started watching this first movie at the weekend but it go so boring I stopped and I got back to it today… and it didn’t improve…


*Gray Lady (2017) A seasoned police officer loses his sister and wife to the same criminal mastermind while on a respite he carries on his investigations into their murders on the island of Nantucket, going back to his origins uncovers more than he bargained for. There are hints of a deep and tangled web of treachery but it’s so lame, there were no shockers or twists as everything is lovingly sign posted and predictable is theme to this flick. being distributed by Anchor Bay I was expecting something outstanding in some way but I didn’t know they started shoveling shit.. I must admit I was hoping for a ghost story, but it turned out to be a bit of a family feud started over a tragic misunderstanding .As the details unraveled instead of the film becoming more interesting I just lost the ability to give a shit. Actor turned Director John Shea hasn’t done anything since Southie (1998) despite his cameo in this film he should stick to acting. The funniest aspect of the film for me how everyone is a look alike to someone awesome, the lead detective and all round good guy Eric Dane looks like a poor relation to William Petersen and the rough and ready rouge of the island Chris Meyer looks incredibly like a chubby Karl Urban 2/10 Continue reading Last Night’s Movies 24.07.2017

Are the kids are ok! Everything is ok.. This film was recommended to me by Andy “the video shop guy” and I guess it’s safe to assume that after being a customer for so many years he knew my addiction to disturbing movies and this was a good call (thanks dude). It wasn’t until halfway through the movie that I actually realised who the director is and instantly saw the connection between this and Another Day in Paradise (1998) and could see Larry Clark has a hard on for naive teenagers…. oh matron!

True Story (2015)

True story


I went into this one a little blind, I knew it featured the acting talents of James Franco (as Christian Longo) and some other guy. It starts out well the other guy, Jonah Hill ( Michael Finkel) gets caught out by his bosses for twisting the truth for an article for the Times (was it the times?) and after being released from this job, while in exile in Montana he gets implicated by a man sought by the FBI for potentially murdering his wife and children, they spark up a friendship and then, movie.
