There seems to be no end in sight to this torrential sunshine we’ve been slogging through. Winter is coming, right? Anyhow, celebrate the dog days of summer by renting some great movies and TV shows! It’s the right thing to do!
I will be out of the office for the next couple of weeks so you’ll have to do without your favourite newsletter! Sad face.
Ballerina (aka Leap)– Nice little animated tale of a young waif who dreams of becoming a Ballerina so she murderers the star of the show and takes her place. Not to sure about the murder part. I haven’t watched it.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter – Spooky-looking thriller finds a couple of girls battling mysterious forces after they get left behind at a creepy boarding school over winter break. Heard fabulous things about this number!
Fateful Findings – Neil Breen stars in this weirdo cult oddity written by Neil Breen about computers and government conspiracies and such. If you like your movies wonderful and bad, this might be the ticket for you. Directed by Neil Breen.
Frantz – Excellent new film from Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, Sea the Sea) about a grieving widow of a German fella killed in WWI who meets a strange French gentleman that visits her dead husband’s grave. Hmmm, I wonder who that might be?
Free Fire – Fun new shoot ’em up number from Ben Wheatley (High Rise, Kill List) about some gangsters who meet in a warehouse and have a big gun battle for some reason. Sign me up!
Journey to the West 2 – Demons Strike Back! – The story continues as a monk and his three disciples fight more demony demons. Not directed by Stephen Chow.
Kong: Skull Island – The big ape is back for another kick at the ape can. A bunch of Hollywood stars become trapped on the island with the big fella and have to fight their way off battling, not only Kong, but other monsters and maybe even some personal demons! Stick around to the end of the credits for a tasty treat.
Lost City of Z – Lovely and amazing true-life adventure flick that follows one of the Sons of Anarchy as he gets lost in the Amazon while searching for a mysterious city back in the day. Look for this one to show up on many year-end top film lists.
Sense of an Ending – Crotchety old man becomes haunted by his past when some new realities present themselves. That make any sense? Of an Ending? Based on a book. An entire book!
The Tunnel Season 2 – More tunnelling in this fine and exquisite British TV series that stars Stannis from that other show.
Fortitude Season 2
Song to Song
Busters Mal Heart
Ghost in the Shell
Big Little Lies
