Based on the autobiography by twins Alex and Marcus Lewis. Tell Me Who I Am is the story of what Marcus did at 18 years of age, when he was faced with an ethical dilemma. The dilemma being whether he should tell his twin brother the horrific truth about his life after losing most of his memory in the wake of a motorcycle accident, or decide to make up a whole new idilic one.
A result of director Ed Perkins’s working with the Lewis brothers Tell Me Who I Am promises an extraordinary story of love, memory, trauma, personal responsibility…
I need to know how Marcus came to the conclusion that lying to his brother was the best option. Misguided good intentions – and perhaps guilt had a little something to do with it.
Marcus was only 18 when he told the lie, Only if he hadn’t waited decades to spill the truth. This should be interesting.
In new action / mystery The Rhythm Section, Blake Lively is a woman determined to seek revenge against the people behind a plane crash that killed her family.
Directed by Reed Morano; additional key cast includes Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown, Max Casella…
Both Peppermint (2018) and Taken (2008) came to mind as this trailer played. That’s precisely after the thought… ‘Is Blake Lively speaking in a British accent?‘ The answer is yes and my fingers are crossed that the end result is as thrilling as this trailer suggests.
Daniel Mays, Richard Brake, Raza Jaffrey, Geoff Bell, Nasser Memarzia, Jade Anouka, Jack McEvoy, Tawfeek Barhom and Ivana Basic also star.
Black Christmas which stars Cary Elwes, Imogen Poots and Brittany O’Grady is a horror / mystery about a group of college students who are stalked by a stranger during their Christmas break.
A remake of a 1974 horror movie of the same name, Black Christmas is co-written and directed by Sophia Takal…
At first I thought: ‘This looks a lot like Scream (1996);’ but luckily, by the end of the trailer (which revealed quite a lot), it’s clear that there seems to be more to this story.
On another note, is it just me or does the Christmas season release date of this movie feel a tad wrong? I mean, who wants to be scared around Christmas time? We’re all supposed to be busy being jolly, as clearly mandated by Mr. Clause, no?
Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, Ben Black, Lily Donoghue and Aleyse Shannon also star.
The promising trailer, my curiosity about Meagan Good and Michael Ealy, plus the fact that I hadn’t seen the esteemed Dennis Quaid in a movie in a while are my reasons for watching director Deon Taylor’s drama / mystery, The Intruder. A story in which a young couple buy a beautiful new home, only to find that the previous owner is having more than ‘a little trouble’ letting go of his former residence.
I can’t say that my expectations were particularly high to begin with, since this type of movie has been made many times before. Yet, I must admit that I found Taylor’s film more thrilling than expected – and Quaid’s performance is very much my favourite thing about The Intruder. I found his performance quite scary, especially considering Good’s overly trusting wife character.
As the movie played, there may have been a couple of moments where I wondered, ‘Did it really make sense for that character to make that move?’ And by ‘that character’ I’m mostly referring to the one played by Joseph Sikora. Nevertheless, even with the moments of failed suspension of disbelief, I still had fun.
Perhaps give The Intruder a chance – if the mood for some easy-viewing thrills strikes. It may not be extraordinary, but that doesn’t mean you won’t appreciate Quaid’s quite frankly, horrifying performance and have a good time.
Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams, Nicole Beharie and Joseph Sikora are the stars of Jacob’s Ladder, a new David M. Rosenthal directed mystery / horror.
A remake of the 1990 movie of the same name, this is the story of Vietnam War veteran Jacob Singer (Ealy), a man struggling to maintain his sanity after returning home…
The mystery and seeing Ealy in what looks like his most intense role yet; these are the reasons I’m interested. I also know and like Williams because of Grey’s Anatomy a TV show that is very like my forever favourite.
William Tokarsky, Kevin L. Johnson, Michael Aaron Milligan, Dwayne Boyd, Desmond Phillips, Ben Bladon, Patti Schellhaas and Lane Miller also star.
Knives Out is a new drama / mystery starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armes, LaKeith Stanfield and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Directed by Rian Jones of Star Wars – The Last Jedi (2017), the a detective (Craig) investigates the death of the patriarch of an eccentric, combative family…
The interesting cast list is the reason I want to see this. My fingers are crossed. Especially since in Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s recent Murder Mystery (2019) movie, it was the ‘murder mystery’ portion of the film that I found least engaging.
Christopher Plummer, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Riki Lindhome and Raúl Castillo also star.Christopher Plummer,
