After years of stability, the lives of octogenarian couple, Craig and Irene Morrison, are slowly beginning to change. Because of changing times and regulations, they are no longer able to make a living from their small coastal New Brunswick farm. And Irene has begun to show signs of early dementia.

Now that's just a cut and paste from a website. But there is much, much more to this movie. I remember movies that move me emotionally.... This is one of those very, very rare movies that strikes a chord with you. Yes demential can be a very difficult subject to discuss, now imagine how difficult it would be to create a film with it as part of the storyline and do it successfully !

Michael McGowan (director) pulls it off, in my opinion. So grab some popcorn, plop down on the sofa with your significant other and grab some tissues also, to dry the tears. I give it a 9 outta 10.

Enjoy !

Quest for Fire takes place some 80,000 years in the past. A primitive homo sapiens tribe huddles around a natural fire source for comfort and survival. When that source is extinguished, tribesmen Naoh (Everett McGill), Amoukar (Ron Perlman), and Gaw (Nameer El-Kadi) are sent out on a "quest for fire."

 

It takes some great acting to be able to pull off this movie and they do it quite well. Highly recommended.

Pawn Shop Chronicles.

 

Sure it is only a 6 or 7 our of 10 movie but it had an all star cast and flew under the radar to me.  I enjoyed it even if it was not a fully envisioned movie.. With that said,  the post production and actor performances were above par.

I just finished watching this, and I have to say it gave me quite a few laughs. 

 

Some of the effects and bits of dialogue are, admittedly, quite corny, but I've always had a soft spot for a good mockumentary and this movie foots the bill.

I have just watched 99 Homes.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2891174/

It has Michael Shannon and Andrew Garfield. Terrific perfomances, especially Shannon is awesome.

The  movie deals with the fallout of the housing market crash of 2008. It takes place early 2010, some

place in the USA. Evictions, scamming, flipping houses.

 

We follow Garfield as he, his young son and mom are evicted. He ends up working for the eviction

company, who also flips houses and scams the banks. He slowly gets sucked into Shannon's schemes.

After eviction the banks own the house and then try to sell these off to so-called bulk-buyers. 

 

I would call this a drama-thriller. Music is quite good. The scenery - someplace warm in the US - not

quite sure where - all quite lovely with birds chirping, sunny, nice breeze. Music is quite soft and really

well done.

 

I give it a 7. The ending left a lot to be desired.

Black Widow

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090738/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

It's an oldy but it's absolutely fantastic. My ex wife is over this evening and we found a good HD copy of it. We're streaming it to the large screen and it's like watching it for the 1st time.

Plot: an insurance fraud investigator investigates a series of deaths - very wealthy slightly older men, all recently married to a gorgeous (younger) woman.

As the compares the various cases she begins to suspect that the woman - is one and the same.

She tries to convince her superiors of this theory but they don't want to hear it.

 

She then follows the woman (on her own) to Hawaii where she is about to "snag" her next husband/victim. 

 

This is I guess called neo-noir, it's great sinister, suspense old school music, it has Debra Winger and Theresa Russell. Both are absolutely fantastic. The story evolves slowly, the Black Widow sucking the new husband as well as the investigator into her web. I am unsure if it can be viewed on DF - I wasn't able to find it w/ a search.

 

Rgrds,

Ghost In The Shell

There were parts where it had a Blade Runner feel with the dark, combined with the synthetic aspect of the main character.

 

Not reaching too far for meaning & not excessive with the action or effects. 

 

A good one too see if Sci Fi is your bag.
