Gremlins 1984

Because you can't beat an anti Christmas classic and years on I still feel this film is a work of art, with a perfect balance of seriousness, violence, humour and black comedy and Stripe is still one of the most brilliant monster villain's put to film. Though if your looking for similar but more modern I would also recommend Krampus 2015 as I get Gremlins is not for everyone.

Well, I've bought a bunch of movies for Christmas and decided to crack one of the new ones I haven't seen - Atomic Blonde. Movie was great, lots of action, which doesn't hold back on the realistic gore, a very compelling plot set against the backdrop of West and East Berlin immediately preceding the fall of the Berlin Wall. Charlize Theron did a great job playing a very convincing female spy capable of kicking ass without a man's help. The soundtrack is wonderfully done, pulling popular songs from around the time, including 99 Luftballons, which personally, I was really hoping to hear given where & when the movie is taking place. James McAvoy also plays quite the compelling character as well, can't go into too much detail for I don't want to spoil the plot.

I never read the graphic novel, The Coldest City, the film is based on, but I'm sure its a fairly accurate adaptation. There's also a sequel in the works (which I'm excited for), and a potential crossover between Atomic Blonde and John Wick because the director was uncredited in directing the first John Wick film. However they won't do the crossover until there's a good enough story to actually film.

Spoiler Alert & Fair Warning  SPOILER: Show
Though fair warning, don't watch with parents unless you want to see their reaction to a lot of topless Charlize Theron and some lesbian sex. That's not a complaint, btw, just a friendly PSA.

Alternately, watch The Devil's Advocate with them first, then it won't be so bad.

^ Oh, I love that movie too.

And that would certainly lessen the blow, and you'll still get plenty of Charlize.

Oh, I remember watching that in High School. Interesting, indeed.

I've watched Bohemian Rhapsody, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I've seen people complaining that the movie distorts a lot of facts for the sake of a compelling narrative. If I was a huge Queen fan, I might have been bothered, but as it stands... I really enjoyed the movie.
I've also watched the Spider's Web. While I quite enjoyed Foy's performance in the movie, overall the movie was weaker in every regard, especially in terms of atmosphere. One just can't be on par with Fincher, I guess. Ultimately the script felt weak - I could tell it was the fourth novel in a series of a dead author only kept alive by monetary concerns. (wuhu). If they'd just expanded on the role of Camille, this could have been much stronger. I wish her character would be handled like a phantom, Fight Club style.

Schindler’s List is playing at AMC theaters across the country to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the films original release. I’ve seen the film before but had the chance to see it on the biggest screen possible with the best audio and picture quality imagineable. It’s a masterpiece that is unequaled in most regards. A film about one of the darkest moments in modern human history that while unflinching in presenting an accurate depicition of what the Holocaust was does not wallow in pain and suffering but finds a way to tell a story about hope and human ingenuinity in the worst of times.
It’s a must see and if you’ve never seen it, or even if you have, try to catch this Steven Spielberg masterpiece at the theaters while you can. It’s playing in 1,000 locations across the US so a screening should be within relative driving distance of everyone in the country. I’m unsure how long the 25th anniversary run is but I’d be surprised if it lasts more than a week or two.
If you can find the time catch a showing this week or next. It’s a monumental masterpiece and an important piece of film history that is also illustrative of real history.
