I've only seen a few of her films, I Tonya being one, but she's seriously good. Just so charismatic.
Yeah. Good performance, but without taking too much focus away from the main character. Nicely balanced.
Started to watch the Lady Gaga film "A star is born" - didn't do any reading up prior and thought first of all it was the story of her musical career, but since learned it is a remake of quite an old film (the storyline made me think this too once we were well into it).
Need to finish it off but quite enjoying TBH.
Anti-Life (known in the US as Breach)
Shockingly bad. Really, horribly bad. Unthinkable. Takes the Crown from Mulan (remake) for being the worst film I’ve seen in recent memory. I don’t dislike it as much as Mulan (I dislike that so much because it COULD have been so easily good) but this is objectively worse.
Nobody has charisma. The editing is all over the place. Some effects / shots were clearly cut for budget. It’s even feels a nonsense - the spaceship crew are just a bunch of utter knuckleheads.... clearly in another dimension from Gattaca.
Really horrid and sadly not even in the so bad it’s good category. Strong suggestion to avoid.
3/10 - a couple of points for the laughs it inadvertently generated.
Incidentally, it has 3/10 on IMDB.
What's with Willis doing these tiny budget sci-fi movies lately? There's another I saw was happening where WWE's Lana is one of the co-star, and they seem to have used modified Master Chief outfits as costumes.
Cosmic Sin, it's called :
Think I’ll have to watch that again.
It’s terrible, what’s Brucie boy playing at.
^ Even the font used in the trailer looks budget.
Finished Dead or Alive yesterday - boy what an experience. Highlight has to be one of the fighters cocking his buff arms accompanied by a gun cocking sound effect. Truly terrible but somewhat
Bruce has always done any old ****, have you seen his IMDB?
Anti-Life is surely his worst.
I saw a great wisecrack online:
“It may be Anti-Life but it’s certainly not Pro-Film”
Land Of Mine. 9/10
Clever double meaning movie title. Very intense film about German POWs made to defuse and clear away thousands of buried mines in Denmark. Expired now on iPlayer but a must see when it comes round again.
Unfortunately he's been phoning it in for years. In fact I'd say for most of his career, after he became star on the back of the original Die Hard. You could probably count on one hand how many decent performances he's given in the last 30 years.
Apparently he only agrees to appear in these low budget films if he can shoot all of his scenes in one day.
He has done quite a few good films though, but yeah most are dire.
Die Hard franchise
Tears of the Sun
The Last Boy Scout
The Fifth Element was great too imo, and Pulp Fiction of course
Managed about 20 minutes of Coming 2 America
The conversation about Bruce can most definitely be applied to Eddie Murphy too.
this post is so underrated
I really enjoyed this. Good easy watch with a relatively decent story.
How did I forget Pulp Fiction!
I'd like to say it gets better. It doesn't, though.
I'm on a knife edge at the moment as well, given the last few films I've recommended have been a tad violent
Nobody, Brawl in Cell Block 99, Killer Joe...
