Life (2017) **REVIEW**

When it comes to films about aliens it can either be a hit or a serious miss. It’s difficult to make something like this good. Because there are so many alien films out there already so most have already been done! When I saw the trailer for ‘Life’ I was skeptical, it didn’t seem too good but I took a chance and thought maybe it could be good.

We got a team of scientist floating in space in an International Space Station looking for life in space, one day they find something and people back on Earth rejoices. The scientist begin to poke and prod on the creature, it seems cute because of its size. But you know, looks can be VERY deceiving though. One day they prodded it too far and it started to fight back. It grabs one of the scientist hand and breaks it, really uncomfortable too see. There is something about this life form that will creep you out – more people it kills and feeds on – yep feeds on – the bigger it gets and it can get terrifying. Now the scientist are fighting for their life and every trick they tried to kill the creature, it didn’t work, just made it more angry.

‘Life’ had it surprises, both good and bad one. I’ve seen very split reviews about ‘Life’ but I got creeped out by it. It isn’t like other alien films, I felt that this one is more realistic than the other alien films out there. And I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it. It’s not too bad actually.

Actors: Hiroyuki Sanada, Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, Jesus Del Orden and many more.

Get Out (2017) **REVIEW**

When it comes to horror films I love watching them and if they come off as weird, I will like them even more and I will find them intriguing, I will stay with it until the end to find out what really was going on.

‘Get Out’ is about a man called Chris going to see his girlfriends parents for the first time, his girlfriend Rose who is white and Chris is not. But that doesn’t stop them. But what Chris doesn’t know is that something sinister and weird is about to happen while he is at his girlfriends parent’s house.Her parents got two people working for them, two people of color but they seem – off. Chris gets suspicious but doesn’t say anything to begin with. Rose’s parents

 

‘Get Out’ is a horror/mystery film, a very talked about one. People got mixed feelings about it but all I can say it, it’s best to watch something for yourself and get your own opinion about something. But the end 0f the film, actually makes it all to make some sense and you will start going ‘Oohh’. I liked the ending and how they made ‘Get Out’. It will give you the creeps but it’s so worth it.

Actors: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Betty Gabriel, Stephen Root, Ashley LeConte Campbell and many more.

Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) **REVIEW**

So it’s been a while since the last Underworld and when I heard another one was coming out I was so excited. Expectations was high and then, at last, it’s here. It’s out and…. fail.

‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ contains the usual blood and gore and fight within the house and clan, backstabbing and no one trusts anyone. But what I found interesting, we finally get to know in this film who David’s mom is and that was the highlight of the film, at least to me. There’s nothing special about this ‘Underworld’ film. Everyone wants to know where Selene’s and Michael’s daughter is, everyone wants to find her and use her for her special powers. So Selene is a very hot topic on many mouths. We also get to see what happened to Michael, we didn’t see him in the film before ‘Blood Wars’.

For me, the most impressive thing about the film was Kate’s ability to still rock that bodysuit and kick ass as she always does. Effects was cool but nothing special. Felt like it was the same story but different situation. But if you are a fan of the ‘Underworld’ franchise don’t let my opinion scare you off, see it and just see for yourself what you think of it..

Actors: Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Tobias Menzies, Lara Pulver, Charles Dance, James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, Bradley James and many more.

 

Blade 3: Trinity (2004) **REVIEW**

We all remember “Blade”, the half vampire – half human man who hunts and kills vampires. “Blade” was the absolute best films back in the day during Wesley Snipes glory days before he got arrested. The “Blade” franchise have three films out and, in my opinion, the first and second film is the ones that are the greatest.

When the film starts we see Blade in action, he is hunting vampires but they got something in store for him. They set him up and films when he kills a human dressed up as a vampire, sends it in to the police and now he is a wanted man. As they try to make an arrest, Whistler gets caught in the cross fire. But all of this is just a set up made by the vampires to get Daywalker off the streets. But we all know how well that is going to work, since we all know, Blade got friends everywhere and people who want to help him.

In this film, Blade fights an enemy he haven’t met before but we all know by legend and stories; Dracula. Or most known as the first.

I’m a huge fan of the “Blade” franchise and have been since I was old enough to watch them. So I might be partial when I say I’d recommend the franchise to anyone. But I would also say skip the second, it’s a bit dull.

Actors: Wesley Snipes, Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Kris Kristofferson, Dominic Purcell, Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins and many more.

The Pyramid (2014) **REVIEW**

Forget everything you know about Ancient Egypt and the pyramids, forget it all and keep your minds open for what might be.

Two archeologists found a pyramid outside of Cairo under the desert. So they are there to dig it out, they found it by using a satellite and it’s powers. This pyramid was buried for a reason but we all know that acheologists won’t listen. A network channel sends two journalists to document the founding and film it all. A guy from the archeology team have a small rover borrowed from NASA to send it where humans can’t go. So when they open the pyramid, something is released, but they get so intrigued so they send in the rover, but something inside the pyramid attacks it, so obviously, the a small group walks inside to find it. And they shouldn’t have walked in.. They keep finding warning signs from ancient Egypt, this pyramid is OLDER than the three pyramids of Giza.

I was at first very skeptical about the film but oh boy, it’s actually quite good. Sure, it’s half footage found kind of film but I was impressed by it. Not much effects used in this, which is impressing. But it got a good story line and we find out in the last 15 min or so of the film what ACTUALLY is going on inside that pyramid.

Actors: Denis O’Hare, Ashley Grace, James Buckley, Amir K, Christa Nicola and many more.

Split (2016) **REVIEW**

When it comes to the director M. Night Shyamalan most horror fans leave disappointed and when ever Shyamalan release something new they got no faith the film will be good. That’s how I felt when I heard he was making “Split” because the storyline sounded quite amazing when I read about the film and saw the trailer of it.

“Split” is about a man, Kevin, who got DID, a personality disorder. He has 23 different personalities living inside his head and most of them are quite harmless, they are nice, some are playful and others are just plain scary and one day one of the personalities does the unthinkable, he kidnaps 3 young girls and planning on giving them to someone called “The Beast” and this guy is right the scariest you can think. During the time the girls are being kept captive they are trying to figure out how to get out and get home but there are three personalities that are mostly dominant. And these three are responsible for deciding kidnapping the three young girls. And during the time we get to see Kevin going to his psychologist and each time he sees her there is something she is picking up, he sends her emails asking for emergency sessions and next day he can’t remember. So question is which personality is sending those emails? Also, we get to see flashbacks on one of the girls from her childhood and how exactly will that save her life? Well you just have to see it for yourself?

When I walked in to the cinema to see “Split” I walked in with a skeptical mind, because whenever I been seeing a movie by Shyamalan I been left so disappointed but “Split” isn’t a scary film but it’s so interesting to watch and I was never bored for a second watching “Split” and I would recommend anyone to actually see it. James McAvoy is MADE for the role as Kevin with 23 personalities and a 24th is about to emerge and he is the scariest of them ALL! And if you see a film from 2000 called Unbreakable then you WILL understand the ending!

Actors: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson, Jessica Sula, Brad William Henke, Sebastian Arcelus and many more.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) **REVIEW**

Back in 1940’s there was a number on murders happening in a small town between Texas & Arizona, they shared state line. Police couldn’t solve the mystery of the murders and one day they just stopped and everything went back to normal. What happened got a film and a lot of media coverage.

But now over 60 years later someone is murdering again, having the same mask and clothes as the original murderer got. Basically becoming a copy cat. First attack a teenage boy was murdered but his girlfriend survived, the killer wanted her to tell a story about Mary. But in the articles and files from police about the killings there’s no mention about Mary so now the true journalism digging begins.

Who is Mary? And why does the killer want this girl to tell the story of Mary? She visits people who have a sort of connection to the original murders and seeing town cooks to find answers. And one of the most important question of the film is; Who is the killer? And why start-up now again after nearly 70 years?

The film is an okay film. Script is good and acting is mediocre but the film as a whole is nowhere near horror or thriller as the description might tell it is. It got gore and really violent scenes and sexual content.

Actors: Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson, Travis Tope, Joshua Leonard, Andy Abele, Gary Cole, Edward Hermann and more.
