Regression (2015) **REVIEW**

I am sure you have heard about this film with Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke in the lead role about a Satanic cult in a small town. When it comes to cults like this one it can be a subject that not many understands and the film is trying to show that. People getting scared of something they do not understand.

A father, John Gray,  is accused of abusing his daughter but he doesn’t remember the abuse. So professor Kenneth Raines is called in to do a session with him. Professor Raines is a specialist in making people remember things they might have forgotten or repressed. The lead detective Bruce Kenner and Professor Raines leave for a church to talk to John’s daughter Angela about the abuse, later show the abuse was about something else – Satanism. So how are the police going to tackle this? And how are they going to catch the members?

Regression offers a lot of mind fucks through the film, makes you think and suspect everyone as a member of the cult. I’d recommend this film. It’s not a horror film but it’s a drama mystery one.

You see actors like Emma Watson, Ethan Hawke, David Thewlis, Devon Bostick, Aaron Ashmore, Dale Dickey and many more.

Boyhood (2014) **REVIEW**

I always wanted to see this film and it blew me away. You see they used same actors for the children, took them 10 years to film Boyhood. The little guy and girl in the beginning is the same children during the entire film. I think that is great – makes the film original and different.

In the beginning we see 2 children, Samantha and Mason with their mother. She wants something better for her children so she tells them that they are moving so she can go back to college and they get to see their father again. The film jumps alot but the events and the story makes sense. The mom marries her college professor who turned out to be this douche who drinks alot and being abusive.

So she takes her children away from there and now they are on their own and everything is good, the mom becomes a professor at a college in a small Texas town. We see how a family tries to survive life and 2 teenagers surviving teens and high school.

Their father is someone they see here and there but is still a good dad. He’s a musician but as the kids grow up so does he. He ends up being married to a woman, has a third child and start going to church and calms down you can say.

During the film the kids grow up in front of you and same parents and all aging in front of you – since the film was recorded of the spam of 10 years – Amazing. But it can come off as a little cheesy but that shouldn’t stop you from seeing it.

You see actors like Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelai Linklater, Libby Villari, Marco Perella and many more.

The Purge **REVIEW**

That I am a fan of The Purge movies isn’t a secret. And I found out that a third movie will come to our cinemas in July 1st 2016. Who’s excited? I know I am..

Now.. for what I was about to do, write about the first The Purge movie. I can’t get enough of this – I like movies with a lot of violence and a little creepy at the same time. If you do too – then The Purge are perfect for you..

The movie takes place in 2022 where something called “The Purge” – a 12 hour period where all criminal activity including murder are legal. A wealthy family are being targeted after giving a man sanctuary from a group of young adult who wants to purge him from the streets. These young adults comes over and want him back so they can purge him or they will break through their security system and grab him with force. Now they have a tough decision to make – keep him or kick him out of the house?

This movie puts fear in people of this happening – people been telling me it won’t happen but play with the idea for a moment. Myself would live in a bunker til end of my days. The weak would go first and I don’t do well with real life violence. But any who.. The Purge movie is quite good and well recommended if you’re looking for that thrill seeking movie that will keep you watching..

You see actors like Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Rhys Wakefield, Tony Oller and many more.
