Blade Runner 2049

157 mins

<><><>

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
<><><>

A slow paced outing that will appeal to Sci-Fi fans who like dramas...personally I thought the film to long.
The special & visual effects were top draw and complimented by excellent performances.
But I felt that the storyline was average giving rise to some plot holes.
Nevertheless worth a watch....

7.5/10







Alien Reign of Man
UK certificate 15
84 mins

Image

Genre : Sci-Fi

Directed by : Justin Price

Starring : Khu/Torrei Hart/Deanna Grace Congo

<><><>

Stranded on a distant planet, a team must fight aliens and activate a machine meant to restore Earth to a time before its downfall.

<><><>

This film could have been better but consisted of disjointed storyline and bad dialogue,
complimented, if that's the word, by poor acting..
The best feature was the visual effects but that was about all...

3.5/10







Flatliners (2017)
UK certificate 15
110 mins

Image

Genre : Drama/Sci-Fi/Thriller

Directed by : Niels Arden Oplev

Starring : Ellen Page/Diego Luna/Nina Dobrev

<><><>

Five medical students, obsessed by what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience - giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife.

<><><>

A remake of the 1990 film of the same name and not a particularly good one.
Unremarkable story and performances..... an average all rounder.

5/10

Mother!

Genre : Drama/Horror/Mystery

Directed by : Darren Aronofsky

Starring : Jennifer Lawrence/Javier Bardem/Ed Harris

<><><>

A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

<><><>

A rather convoluted storyline and plot which in many ways is Aronofsky's trade mark.
Well enough performed with some good visual effects especially in the escalating violence.
If you liked Aronofsky's other films. such as "Pi" and "The Fountain", you will also like this.

6.5/10







The Ritual

Genre : Horror

Directed by : David Bruckner

Starring : Rafe Spall/Arsher Ali/Robert James-Collier

A group of college friends reunite for a trip to the forest, but encounter a menacing presence in the woods that's stalking them.

<><><>

Nicely performed with engaging characters and storyline.
The special and visual effects were ok to....
The only down side is have we not trod this path before.
One for Horror fans.

6.5/10







Wind River
UK certificate 15
111 mins

Genre : Crime/Drama/Mystery/Thriller

I enjoyed this film for its gripping storyline and top draw performances..
The cinematography was excellent putting you right in there with the wintery scenes.
If you like a mystery drama with guts then watch this film.

7.5/10
