Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse stars Michael B. Jordan as John Clark, a Navy SEAL who sets off on a personal mission to avenge his wife’s murder, only to find himself inside of a larger conspiracy.
Directed by Stefano Sollima; additional key cast includes Lauren London, Jodie Turner-Smith, Jamie Bell and Guy Pearce.
I say bring on the well-choreographed fight/combat sequences. I’m more that ready to see Jordan believably portraying a Navy SEAL. I’m also ready to hear him say ‘No remorse‘ about one hundred more times.
Jacob Scipio, Todd Lasance, Jack Kesy, Lucy Russell, Cam Gigandet, Luke Mitchell, Artjom Gilz, Brett Gelman, Merab Ninidze and Alexander Mercury also star.
In new HBO crime/drama Mare of Easttown, detective Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet) is trying to do her job while attempting to stop her own life from falling apart.
Set in a small Pennsylvania town, additional key cast includes Guy Pearce, Evan Peters, Julianne Nicholson, Jean Smart
My interest levels were immediately high because it’s Winslet. Then lines like ‘Mare, I know what you’ve been through. And I know you’re worth saving.‘ happened. Now I’m extra curious. Especially since this trailer cleverly reveals very little.
Lastly, bring on the winning Winslet’s transformation, for I am ready.
Angourie Rice, Sosie Bacon, Izzy King, David Denman, Neal Huff, Cameron Mann, James McArdle, Kassie Mundhenk and Ben Miles also star.
There are a number of things including the history lesson that made me want to watch Mary Queen Of Scots; the story of the troubled relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart.
Considering that director Josie Rourke’s film is a costume drama, I’d hoped to see lots of sumptuous clothing design, in addition to very well written dialogue delivered by great actors. The film’s trailer even had me expecting something not too far from as epic as director Shekhar Kapur and Cate Blanchett’s Elizabeth (1998).Unfortunately for me, things didn’t quite transpire that way.
Starring Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, Joe Alwyn and Guy Pearce, there certainly were a handful of well designed costumes to enjoy. Yet it’s the few moments of beautiful visuals – especially outdoor cinematography that proved most arresting for me. Even more so than the dialogue and general story editing which I have to admit had me less engaged and interested than I envisioned I’d be.
It’s likely that in addition to finding the story more dull than anticipated, my interest also started to diminish in part because of how distressing sitting through the sexism and misogyny proved to be.
Just like my recent review of On The Basis of Sex (2018), another historical drama, it’s the part near the very end that I liked most about Mary Queen Of Scots. Meaning, everything from the moment the two royals finally meet. Actually, even with that said, I still choose the few visually arresting moments over the dialogue and this telling of the Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart story.
Watch Mary Queen Of Scots if you absolutely must. As for myself, I think it’s time I re-watched the great Elizabeth (1998).
Starring Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, Julian McMahon and Radha Mitchell,Swinging Safari is about a teenager coming of age in a small Australian town during the 1970s, when a 200-ton blue whale gets washed up on a local beach.
Directed by Stephan Elliot the movie also stars Jack Thompson and Asher Keddie…
Even if all I end up watching of this movie is this trailer, I won’t mind too much because this is two minutes of very entertaining Australian ‘madness’.
Besides the promising humour, I’m most looking forward to seeing popstar Kylie Minogue in actor mode.
Michael Fassbender, James Franco and Carmen Ejogo’s Ridley Scott directed new movie, Alien – Covenant has an an excellently scary new trailer.
I remember being absolutely terrified after watching the original Alien (1979) movie.
Maybe, just maybe I’ll be brave for this. Either that or this trailer is as far as my ‘peaceful sleep loving’ behind is going to get. Who knows, 2017 still could be a year in which I surprise myself in terms of the movies I end up watching.
Alien – Covenant is the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus (2012), and is linked to the original Alien movie.
Brimstone is the latest western/ thriller from director Martin Koolhoven. Starring Kit Harrington, Guy Pearce, Dakota Fanning and Carice van Houten this is a story about Liz (Fanning), a young woman who wants a better life for her and her daughter are hunted by a vengeful preacher (Pearce)…
Guy Pearce in a ‘bad guy’ role reminds me of his great work in Lawless (2012). My, oh my did I hate his character in that movie – so good are his skills as a thespian. I hope this is a good one too.
Equals is the new sci-fi/ drama movie from Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart…
Directed by Drake Doremas, I know that love makes fools of us all but what kind of madness must have taken place for love to become outlawed? This is why I have to watch, also because of Ridley Scott’s involvement.
