Based on David Grann’s 2008 article, True Crimes – A Postmodern Murder Mystery, director Alexandros Avranas’s Dark Crimes is a thriller about the murder investigation of a slain business man.

Starring Jim Carrey, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marton Csokas, said investigation leads to an author’s book which happens to feature an eerily similar crime…

I badly want this to be a good and worthy crime / thriller; particularly since the last film in this genre that I was excited about (Hangman 2017) didn’t turn out as well as hoped

With memories of how much I enjoyed Carrey in The Truman Show (1998) still intact, I’m remaining  hopeful.

Kati Outinen, Vlad Ivanov, Agata Kulesza and Anna Polony also star.

Dark Crimes Release Dates: May 11th, 2018 (US)…

VOICE FROM THE STONE (2017): New Trailer Starring Emilia Clarke, Marton Csokas, Caterina Murino…

In Voice From The Stone, Emilia Clarke plays a solemn nurse whose task it is to aid a young boy who hasn’t spoken since his mother passed suddenly. Also starring Marton Csokas and Caterina Murino, this Eric D. Howell directed thriller is set in 1950s Tuscany…

 

If I were in the mood to be completely ridiculous, I’d say that Emilia Clarke has been ‘typecast’ because this is the second film where she’s been ‘brought in to help an unwell young man recover’. The first film of course being 2016’s romantic movie, Me Before You. The real truth is, I’m far too wise and therefore know only too well that twice does not a typecast actor make.

Watching Voice From The Stone shouldn’t be difficult for me because it’s not exactly a horror film. Also, I love Italy and I’m far too young to know what Tuscany was like in the 1950s but I want to know, so…

Voice From The Stone Release Dates: April 28th, 2017 (US)…

THE EQUALIZER (2014): ‘Badassery’ Denzel Washington Style

Director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer makes me think of Taken (2008) and Taxi Driver (1976). It’s unsurprising since all three films feature young girls who end up in very unfortunate predicaments, but luckily for them, an individual takes it upon themselves to do everything they can to make things right.

I love stories like this because not many who find themselves in such precarious situations are as lucky. Seeing baddie’s get what they deserve is always fun to watch. I can’t tell you how happy I was at the end of Bryan De Palma’s Carrie (1976). 🙂

If you’re familiar with Denzel Washington, let’s face it, there a few who aren’t, then you know you’re in for a fun ride. Laced with action, good dialogue and Denzel style ‘badassery,’ The Equalizer will keep you entertained.

One of the most memorable moments for me is the swift move with the gun at Pushkin’s warehouse. It’s so quick, but just as impressive each time I hit the replay button. I also love the music that starts at approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.

Happy Film loving 🙂
