Underrated Indie sci-fi

IO (2019)

Yes; this is all dialog without much action action. That was the point; to delve into some philosophical thinking . Not a movie for those unwilling to dive into some abstract, profound thinking. "IO" is an exceptional film if you're willing to invest your brain cells.
Stars: Margaret Qualley ,HBO's The Leftovers. Anthony Mackie, Danny Huston



'IO' is a theme of Isolation and Loneliness. Post-apocalyptic psychological drama, focusing on human relationships This film is an excellent character study . It absolutely will not be pleasing to people who want high-tech, fancy FX, big budget excitement. This movie is a ***Slow Burn ***. And I loved it . The plot appears, to the casual viewer to be fairly straight-forward and simple.

Except it's not, and I'm still trying to figure it out. It's foundation lies in the poem by Yeats, "Leda and the Swan," an understanding of Greek mythology, and to some extent, the Trojan War. "And Agamemnon dead," is a *key* line, spoken more than once through out the film .
Under the dismal veil of a post-apocalyptic earth, the movie focuses on the importance of art, of culture, of history and what the wold would be with out it.
If you like to think, ponder and ask what if, why, how and for what purpose? And who are willing to delve into some philosophical thinking, I'd recommend this movie. You'll find 'IO' enjoyable. It Pays the viewer off emotionally well after the credits roll.

Premium Rush
(2012)



I love this movie. It reminds me of years and years driving in New York City.
I've had so many not so nice encounters with bike messengers.
Oh well... yellow cab drivers were way worse !!!

Crawl (2019) Cinema Showing packed house

Lashings of blood-drenched mayhem !!!

A young woman, while attempting to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped in a flooding house and must fight for her life against alligators.



A bat****, wild summer thrill! Everything you can ask from a fun survival horror, and more! Kaya Scodelario's visceral performance anchors the mayhem.'Crawl' knows exactly what it is and offers precisely what you paid for. A fun and blood-drenched terror-filled romp .

I never read the book and was told the movie was blah by someone who had read the book, so I went into it with fairly low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it.

Alita: Battle Angel (2019) - Robert Rodriguez directs. Produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau. Written By James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis. Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeff Fahey, Rick Yune, Casper Van Dien, and Keean Johnson. Uncredited: Michelle Rodriguez, Jai Courtney and Edward Norton.



Watched streaming on iTunes in 4K and Atmos. Excellent cast, great action. Surprisingly good since I knew little about the character (based on the Japanese cyberpunk manga - Ganmu) and the movie poster didn't seem to promise much. The CGI looked both familiar and different. There is much eye candy here, crank up the volume because the Atmos soundfield especially in the arena scenes is enveloping. Made much more money overseas than in the US with overall total at $404 million. The Blu-ray is set to release July 23, 2019 - in 4K and 3D. The 4K disc will the first Fox release in Dolby Vision. Recommended.

Mean Streets (1973) - Martin Scorsese directs. Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro, David Proval, Amy Robinson, Richard Romanus, David Carradine and Cesare Danova.



Ran across this on Netflix last night, vaguely remember seeing it back in the day. A real New York City time capsule. An early Scorsese effort which got positive reviews. Sometimes the acting has an improvisational feel like the director is allowing each actor to expand on the script. It seemed like the film had no real plot just 'a day in the life' which is interesting nonetheless.

The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) 5 stars




Really enjoyed it and bought the blu-ray.


Schoolteacher and single mother Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) lives an average suburban life -- until she begins having strange memories of unexplained violence and discovers that she has physical skills that she never imagined. Hiring private detective Mitch Hennessey (Samuel L. Jackson) to probe into her past, Samantha discovers that she's a well-trained government assassin who went missing after suffering a bout of amnesia and that her former handlers want her back in their employ.

Midsommar (2019) Cinema showing

Drama, Horror, Mystery
Stars: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Vilhelm Blomgren
Director: Ari Aster Writer: Ari Aster

There is a plethora of words to describe Ari Aster's second outing. But at the top is unique. Midsommar remains captivating from start to finish. Midsommar is a Drama at its core; with elements of horror entwine in The Surreal screenplay. It's slow, methodical, eerie. 140 minutes. Florence Pugh is absolutely phenomenal. She provides the heart for the film and is what keeps the audience emotionally invensted.
The film is fabulous to just stare at every frame and behold the transpiring of absolute madness. Its an absolute psychedelic trip from start to finish. I loved every excruciatingly paced surreal, bizarre, traumatizing second. 9/10

The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964) Svengoolie MeTV ,DVD

Ah, Hammer Horror...such a British institution

Hammer Horror...such a British institution for so many years. It may be a shadow of its former self nowadays but the films from its heyday are still revered as classic horror movies.

British archaeologists and their American investor ship an Egyptian mummy's sarcophagus to London but someone has the amulet to revive the mummy that will then kill all those who disturbed its tomb.

There is a plethora of words to describe Ari Aster's second outing. But at the top is unique. Midsommar remains captivating from start to finish. Midsommar is a Drama at its core; with elements of horror entwine in The Surreal screenplay. It's slow, methodical, eerie. 140 minutes. Florence Pugh is absolutely phenomenal. She provides the heart for the film and is what keeps the audience emotionally invensted.
The film is fabulous to just stare at every frame and behold the transpiring of absolute madness. Its an absolute psychedelic trip from start to finish. I loved every excruciatingly paced surreal, bizarre, traumatizing second. 9/10





Spoiler!
Don't forget to cross post in the 'Midsommar' thread, lest you receive ire. I didn't initially and THO is not letting me forget it.

Hellboy (2019) - Neil Marshall directs. David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim and Thomas Haden Church.



Watched streaming on iTunes last night. Best described as gory fun and certainly deserves its R rating. Harbour brings a different sensibility to the Hellboy role. I was laughing and chuckling throughout as the jokes and puns were flying but my humor level may differ from yours. Popcorn over-the-top movie but the critics ganged up on this anyway. Blu-ray releases July 23, 2019.
