The Great Wall (2016) **REVIEW**

‘The Great Wall’ isn’t just a chinese fast food place I order frequently from it’s also a very good film starring Matt Damon. There are a lot of legends about what the wall of China was used for, what it’s protecting and ‘The Great Wall’ is one of those films that tells one of those legends.

A the film begins we see a group of men running from a tribe in China, being chased and killed, picked off one by one. They manage to shake them off an hide in the mountains. As there are a few men left sitting by the fire, all of the sudden something comes for them, sneaking and snatching them, one by one they fall. William (Matt Damon) kills one of them, get’s a foot as a trophy. He and his friend Tovar rides and ends up by a large wall, they obviously get’s captured but they show the large army the foot they have and all of the sudden, the leaders of the army seems intrigued by them. Shortly after that, we get to see what exactly they are fighting and now William and Tovar have a choice to make, fight along side them or stay hidden. Because, this army won’t let them leave because they have seen what they are fighting and it needs to be kept a secret from the outside world.

‘The Great Wall’ is much better than you might think, give it a chance and watch it. If you like some cool fighting scenes, awesome visual effects and people in some kickass armors then trust me, this film is for you.

Actors: Matt Damon, Tian Jing, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau, Pedro Pascal, Hanyu Zhang, Lu Han and many more.

The Conjuring 2 (2016) **REVIEW**

Ed and Lorraine are known for investigating the paranormal as Lorraine can contact the dead and see them. They did an investigation of Amityville and that put them right in the public eye. As for when they were asked to help out a little girl in England and this haunting was one of the most diabolical and evil they encountered.

The second part of The Conjuring the meet Ed and Lorraine once more and this time, they are being asked to help out  in Enfield, England. A case that got a lot of attention in media. And this story is based on a true story. You can read various stories about that hunting by clicking HERE!

England in 1977 so much was going on the country but this one family: Hodgson’s family had a very difficult time. Their 11-year-old was subdued to an evil in the house. A single mom taking care of 4 children on her own, they are struggling in many ways and those families are very vulnerable to the paranormal. At first an expert are saying she is faking it because the paranormal isn’t true. Ed and Lorraine tell a different story. Janet is the 11-year-old girl who is being the victim in this story. First no one believes her until herself and her siblings are being levitated and thrown across the room. At first we think it’s only one spirit but throughout the film we get clues. Clues that are easy to miss. Something else is blocking visions for Lorraine, she can’t see or feel what’s in this house.

Questions is, how on earth are they going to help this family without getting seriously hurt? If a paranormal entity is this powerful to block it all from Lorraine, then who or more what are we dealing with? It all started with a game of Ouija. Lesson here is – DON’T!

Actors: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Madison Wolfe, Frances O’Connor, Simon McBurney, Franka Potente and many more.

 

Bastille Day (2016) **REVIEW**

I’ve been a huge fan of Idris Elba since I saw Beast of no Nation of Netflix. And when I saw the trailer of this film I got a little excited. I like seeing him in different roles, the man can act. And if you haven’t seen him any film or TV series yet, you really should. The man is talented.

Bastille Day is a pretty good movie far as action goes but little weak on the story line. Bastille Day got some good actors. Over all, it’s a decent film and worth a watch. You can watch it once and that’s about it.

Bastille Day is about a CIA agent played by Mr Elba and his job is to catch a nobody pocket picker Michael Mason after he was seen at a bomb seen. Now, what happened here was Mason stole a bag from a woman who seemed stressed and he didn’t find anything of value in the bag so he tossed it and three-seconds after he tossed it, a bomb goes off. So of course he runs away and now Sean Briar from CIA is after him only to find out, Mason wasn’t the guy behind the bomb. So who was? You get to see scenes  with a few bad guys and here is your job to make out who they are because their identities will become clear to you later in the film and why they are doing what they are doing.

After you see the film you will realize how easy it is to make people do what you want, if you want to cause a riot. Make a bomb and pin it on the muslims. Like it happened in the film and see the chaos unfold.

So Sean Briar, Michael Mason is now set to find the woman whose bag Mason stole to work together while they are being chased by the bad guys and they are shooting on sight since Madden have been stamped as a terrorist, since he was seen on the scene of the bomb and now authorizes believe he is the guy they are looking for. So Briar, Mason and the lady who’s bag got stolen are now working together to get evidence that Madden is innocent.

Actors: Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Kelly Reilley, Charlotte Le Bon, Anatol Yusef, Jose Garcia, Eriq Ebouaney and many more.

Spotlight (2015) **REVIEW**

A lot happened in 2001 that had the world shaken up. But there was one thing that happened in Boston that had the city shaken and then the country.

Spotlight is based on a true story on how Boston Globe uncovered a web of lies and child abuse within the Catholic Church. We follow 5 journalists and their work to uncover the truth. We see the ups and downs. The unwillingness if the church to cooperate, they rather sweep it under the rug, they prefer to put the priest in a different parish and have him doing it again and keep shoving him around rather than handle it as it should.

During their investigation one of the journalists find a priest living in his neighbourhood, a priest who’s on a list who molested children. How do you react to that? As they all are trying to keep their cool and find all documents they need and doing all the interviews they find themselves feeling heavy, losing sleep. As they find one lawyer who is willing to work with them and tell them how to find documents but the church will try and grab those documents before anyone else to bury it. People been trying to speak out before but church got to them first and asked them to keep quiet.

So it’s key for these journalists to work quietly so the piece will become bigger and they unravel as much as 90 priests in Boston alone who was under suspicion of child abuse. Their road is long and being there for the victims is key to the journalists to get the right story told.

Actors: Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Brian d’Arcy James, Stanley Tucci, Gene Amoroso and many more.

Magic Mike XXL (2015) **REVIEW**

We do remember the first Magic Mike and we got to see how it was to be a male stripper with Channing Tatum in the lead. And it was one hell of a film for the ladies and then… Magic Mike XXL came out last year. And boy the second one is 10x better, stronger, funnier and SEXIER! I’m not going to lie. When I first saw this second film, I couldn’t stop giggling at part because you know – Channing Tatum and his dance move that will make your heart skip a beat, make you get all sorts of hot and have that giggle fit that only ladies get when a very attractive man comes around.

Mike is now the CEO of his own company and liking what he got at the moment. And then an old friend calls him up and he is taken to a motel thinking it’s a wake. But it’s a party and gets invited to come a long to the stripper convention. Before he makes his mind up, Pony comes on the radio. Mike starts to smile and he does his little routine in his work shop and just like that, his mind was made up and he seeks out the boys before they leave and join them on the trip to the convention.

Mike talks them into having a new fresh routine and they are little skeptic but he manage to win them over but, they’re MC gets hurt and now they need a new one so Mike and the guys seeks out Rome in Savannah. A MC Mike used to work with but it’ll take a lot of convincing to get her to join.

So question here is.. Mike and the guys will they be able to bring something new for the convention? And the MC? Will she come with? You already know the answer because films like this are a lot predictable but that doesn’t mean Magic Mike XXL is one of the best films of 2015 and it’s all for the ladies to enjoy and giggle.

You see actors like Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Gabriel Iglesias aka Fluffy, Matt Bomer,  Adam Rodriguez, Jada Pinkett Smith and many more.

Saving Mr Banks (2013) **REVIEW**

This film is one that made me smile and at the same time feel sad. Saving Mr Banks is about  when the author of Mary Poppins comes to L.A to sign papers of Disney’s adaption of her book.

P.L Travers – the woman who wrote Mary Poppins. We get to see her in different setting then what she is used to back in England. Disney seems to be a happy fellow and people love him. We also get to see P.L remembering her childhood and how she protests on how the characters should be and how they should look. She almost calls it off.

You could say P.L is a bit difficult to work with but yet everyone likes her when she’s.. let’s say in a good mood. After a lot of going back and forth she settles how for the songs, looks and everything else. She goes back to England a changed woman but still the same. Just bit more relaxed.

Saving Mr Banks is something you should see if not haven’t done so already. It’s filled with laughter, sadness and of course the amazing actor that is Tom Hanks who portrays Walt Disney. Something he does very well – he can almost play anything. We see the brilliant Emma Thompson playing P.L Travers and who else would they have hired if not her? Both these amazing actors did a fantastic job and yes – see it when you have time.

You see actors like Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford, B.J. Novak. Jason Schwartzman and many more.
