It looks like 2016 is the year of the western because The Duel is a brand new  one that stars  The Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson…

For this particular movie, I’ve made the decision to look way beyond the highly questionable choice of trailer music and dig down deep in hopes for the best.

I’m getting a little bit of a Colonia (2016) vibe, which isn’t a bad thing. in fact – Lena, the character played by Emma Watson is my current reference for when I need to have courage in a challenging situation. ‘Be brave like Lena’ I say to myself.

The Duel Release Dates: June 24th, 2016 (US)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

The trailer is here for the new film about Jesse Owens, the American athlete who achieved greatness against massive odds…

It’s a shame that upon returning to America after winning 4 gold medals at the Berlin Olympics, Owens wasn’t treated as well as you might expect for an American hero.

During that time, as bad as things were in Nazi Germany, they weren’t great for people of colour in the United States either. Nevertheless, Race, the story of Jesse Owens is still a powerful one, especially for all oppressed people with big dreams.

Directed by Stephen Hopkins; Stephan James stars as Owens with Jason Sudeikis, William Hurt and Jeremy Irons in the key supporting roles.

Release Date (s): February 19th 2016 (US), May 5th 2016 (Germany)…

A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE (2005): So Good!

A small town, suddenly sprinkled with a few non local visitors can only mean trouble, and trouble does come. Especially for Tom Stall, a well regarded local coffee shop owner with a wife and two children.

Directed by David Cronenberg and starring Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello and Ed Harris, there’s much to love and little else left to be desired here.

For those familiar with Cronenberg’s trademark visceral style, this drama/ crime/ thriller definitely has scenes and moments that remind you perfectly of who the director is.

A well written story, that’s brilliantly delivered is the reason A History Of Violence (2005) is one of my favourite films of all time.

What’s brought to mind each time I’m reminded of it, besides the fact that it entertained me like crazy?

Push someone far enough and you’ll be awakened to the truth of who they really are. Chances are, however small, you won’t like what you find.

Happy A History Of Violence 🙂
