In new sci-fi / thriller Bird Box, after a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. And so begins the journey of a woman and two children who make their way through a dystopian setting along a river whilst blindfolded.

Directed by Susanne Bier; key cast includes Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar, Trevante Rhodes…

Hello great trailer! I like the way this reminds me a little of A Quiet Place (2017). May it be equally thrilling if not more.

I also rather like the combination of Bullock and Paulson in one movie.

Lil Rel howery, Jacki Weaver, Machine Gun Kelly, Parminder Nagra, John Malkovich and David Dastmalchian also star.

Bird Box Release Dates: December 21st, 2018 (US & UK)…

Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, 12 Strong is the true story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. There task, to work with an Afghani warlord to take down the Taliban…

Once again, as I do with most war movies I watch, I have to ask the question, how likely is this film to take the place of the The Hurt Locker as my favourite war movie?

12 Strong Release Dates: January 19th, 2018 (US); January 26th, 2018 (UK)…

MOONLIGHT (2016): The Things I Loved…

There are a number of reasons to like 2017 Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight. The beautiful cinematography, faultless performances and a timely telling of a very important story are just three of them.

Thanks to Barry Jenkins’ very personal movie, I now know of Mahershala Ali, a very skilled actor whose Moonlight character Juan isn’t even in the movie throughout but there’s no forgetting him; if only for all that Ali was able to expertly convey, especially through his eyes.

Moonlight is a coming of age story about the childhood, adolescence and burgeoning adulthood of a young, African-American gay man growing up in a rough neighbourhood in Miami. It’s a film that reminded me of the very important and often pivotal role that the kindness of a stranger / strangers can have in our lives.

Watch it because it’s a story beautifully told and you too may find yourself remembering the perfect strangers that may have helped you become all that you’re grateful to be.
