Based on true stories, Lost Girls stars Amy Ryan as Mari Gilbert. Gilberts’s daughter Shannan disappears, and police inaction drives her to investigate into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search soon brings attention to an even more grim reality…

 Directed by Liz Garbus; additional key cast includes Gabriel Byrne, Dean Winters, Thomasin McKenzie Lola Kirke…

It seems quite clear that Dean Winters’s character isn’t all he ought to be. I’m in for the mystery, plus the great performances by all, especially Ryan and Byrne.

Kevin Corrigan, Miriam Shor, Oona Laurence, Reed Birney, Austyn Johnson, Rosal Colon, Molly Brown, Haskiri Velazquez, Jimi Stanton and Harvey B. Jackson also star.

Lost Girls Release Dates: March 13th, 2020 (US & UK) / Netflix…

Bresha Webb, Mehcad Brooks , Crystal Fox and Adrian Pasdar are the stars of new thriller A Fall From Grace.

Written, directed by and also starring Tyler Perry, this is the story of a woman whose new love’s true colours only come out once she’s married to him; leading to the implosion of her short lived joy…

I’m giving this one a chance out of curiosity about the perfect circumstance that led to Fox’s character falling victim to Brook’s despicable con.

Fingers crossed that the courtroom dramatics will also be fun to watch because I really do love those are good.

Cicely Tyson, Phylicia Rashad, Sandra Ellis Lafferty, Nathan Anderson, Michael Rose, Walter Fauntleroy, James William Ballard, Matthew Law, James Healy Jr. and Frances Mitchell also star.

A Fall From Grace Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US) / Netflix…

Starring Sophia Lillis, Alice Krige, Samuel Leakey and Jessica De Gouw, Gretel and Hansel is a new fantasy / horror thriller based on the classic story of Hansel and Gretel.

Directed by Oz Perkins and set in distant fairy tale countryside, this is the story of a young girl who leads her younger brother in to a dark wood in a desperate search for food…

What a perfectly creepy trailer.

For a long time I’ve known that the Hansel and Gretel story was much darker than many realise. Now I get to find out just how dark.

Manuel Pombo, Abdul Alshareef, Ian Kenny, Beatrix Perkins and Charles Babalola also star.

Gretel And Hansel Release Dates: January 31st, 2020 (US)…

The official trailer for A Quiet Place Part 2 is here. A John Krasinski directed horror / thriller starring Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy and about a family whose survival is dependant on how quiet they can be in their everyday lives…

This is one of very few trailers that doesn’t feel too long even though it’s more than 2.5 minutes in length.

I’m definitely looking forward to all the major mommy ‘badassery’ we can expect from Blunt. I also find myself relieved that Murphy will be playing a good guy. The Abbot family could really do with another adult on their side. Especially considering all the people left who ‘aren’t worth saving’.

Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong, Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.

A Quiet Place Part 2 sees the return of the Abbot family (Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds) as they learn that the creatures that hunt by sound aren’t the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

Directed by John Krasinski; additional key cast includes Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, Wayne Duvall, Lauren-Ashley Cristiano…

I’m excited to see more ingenuity by the Abbot family, what new and clever ways will they adopt to ensure survival.

Also, I like the introduction of Murphy. My guess is that he’s probably not a ‘good guy…’ or is he?

Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich, Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.

In new comedy / thriller Come To Daddy, Elijah Wood is a privileged man-child who arrives at the remote coastal cabin of his estranged father, who he hasn’t seen in 30 years. 

Based on the story by Toby Harvard and directed by Ant Timpson, additional key cast includes Stephen McHattie, Garfield Wilson, Madeleine Sami…

I’m interested because it’s strange and I haven’t watched a Wood movie in a while. My other reason is definitely that haircut. I admit that it intrigues me.

6 UNDERGROUND (2019): The Things I Liked…

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Corey Hawkins and Mélanie Laurent, 6 Underground, the latest action / thriller from Michael Bay only kind of found its way after the first hour.

I say ‘found its way’ when what I really mean is, things became most fun to watch past the hour mark. Before then, I was simply left desperate for the character background detail of the six off-the-grid agents focused on eliminating notorious criminals. I was also eagerly waiting to be gripped by everything that was happening.

Eventually, some of the character backstory did come but it certainly wasn’t soon enough or executed in the most satisfying way. The good news is that I did finally stop wanting for things and just got engrossed in all the fun past the hour point; thanks to all the action sequences in Hong Kong, plus everything else that happens after.

Other notable highlights include the opening visuals at the very beginning . I’m quite the sucker for good opening visuals. I also really enjoyed the few seconds later on when Reynolds’s character speaks in a British accent. 

Overall, even with one, two or more fairly obvious continuation errors, luckily for me, I don’t find Bay’s movie to be a total waste of time but it definitely did need at least one more story draft.

Should you decide to watch it, maybe hold out for the scenes in Hong Kong, which start at around one hour into the movie.
