    Scorpion King 4. While it is still made by the Sommers company who produced The Mummy and the original Scorpion King this movie while funny with some action in it is not as good as others . It drifts to far away from what the Scorpion King is all about and set in a ludicrous setting of the middle ages (?). The last movie in this series I bought was The Scorpion King Book of Souls and this is far superior to this one.



    and Scorpion King Book of Souls.

    Watched this on Tuesday night ... not overly keen on Russel Crowe though he's been in a few films that I really like [Romper Stomper, Gladiator, L A Confidential and Cinderella Man] but for me he's a bit over-rated , that said, he does well here. [even with his over-the-top padding] and if you do not look for the obvious flaws and just go with the flow of the movie ... I would give this one a firm 8/10.



    Cheers.

    Yeah I watched this movie a couple weeks ago, Russell Crowe sure can play crazy, a little too well if you ask me lol...His acting had me convinced he is character was unbalanced, you could even see it in his eyes lol...He put on a few pounds too eh?...This is a good movie, I think it's an 8 out of 10 too...

    Watched this last night, and can't sing it's praises enough. .. It's definitely a must see and easily as good as the last August Wilson masterpiece that I saw [Fences] ... I predict Academy Award Glory all round for this film... Viola Davis at her imperious best chews the scenery up like no other woman can, and furthermore, I'm certain that the late Chadwick Boseman is a deserved shoe-in for the best actor nod. ... in fact the whole cast is a perfect ensemble worthy of any award that it may glean. ... I only hope that Denzel Washington doesn't leave the next instalment of Wilson's catalogue so long in coming to the screen. 10/10.

    Cheers.

    About 11 minutes in this video he says: "This movie is long, 2 1/2 hours long and you feel every minute of it. You can cut 30 minutes from this movie and lose nothing of value."

    Dull lifeless and plodding.
    A CGI that failed on every level.
    A wandering script.
    And wooden acting
    My boys lost interest and went to play with their Santa Fe flyer. I can't blame them.
    I will close with my daughter Kate's assessment "this movie sucks."
    1/10

    AI Rising 2018 also known as Ederlezi ébredése is a Serbian film made for $300,00 . This is basically a soft porn sci fi film that loses much in the gratuitous rape scenes and sexual exploitation of a female Cyborg. The lone astronaut ( Milutin ) on board the Alpha Centauri mission is a loser as far as females are concerned. His numerous past failures with the opposite sex is apparent in the treatment he dishes out to the Cyborg Nimani while on route to Earths nearest star. Almost half the film is of Milutin and Nimani with no clothes on . Milutin is determined to change the Cyborgs programming something the Cyborg and Ground Control do not wish to happen. He eventually manages to de programme her and finds to his amazement she really does have feelings ( she can cry ) after all and may not have had to do a memory wipe on her in the first place. Over all the special effects are pretty good the acting is so so but the music is really something. The film could have been so much better on numerous levels if they had done a better script and left out most of the incessant bonking. 5 out of 10.

    Sorry to say this but Gal Gadot looks the part of Wonder Woman. Unfortunately she can’t act her way out of a paper bag. I watched some clips from the “1984” movie. Oh my that was bad. I won’t have to watch that one.

    I watched Rise of Skywalker last night because I felt obligated. I heard it was terrible.

    It was. You could stare at a spot on the wall for two hours and be equally enriched.

    I'm watching The Mothman Prophecies again right now because it's just so well executed, oddly haunting, and completely unique, that I have to re-watch it periodically because nothing quite scratches my itch for eerie paranormal cinema like this film does. It's like it's still it's very own genre - it's not quite horror, but it is spooky in an entirely fresh way. It's not a thriller, but it has some thrilling moments. And it's too life-like to be considered fantasy or science fiction. And somehow I find it completely engaging even though Richard Gere plays the starring role (all of his other typically smug and bloodless performances leave me cold)...for which I'm grateful, because if he hadn't signed on to this film it would've ended up as a pathetic and underfunded pale B-movie shadow of what it actually is: a masterpiece of supernatural cinema.

    I suspect that our former board member humanoidlord loved this movie so much that he chose to believe that it's a documentary. I'm more inclined to see it as John Keel's contribution to the literary genre of "magical reality" storytelling. But apparently there's enough supporting independent eyewitness testimony from the events at Point Pleasant that led to this book and film, that something really effed up may have actually happened there, prior to the obvious historical event. But how much of Keel's personal incidents from that period are true, and how many are symptoms of the DT's, and how many are just a skillful use of creative license...I have no idea. And honestly I think I prefer it that way, because the unresolved mystery definitely contributes to this film's timeless appeal and creepy gravitas.

    I give this one at least a 9.5/10 because it's one of those weird and wonderful cases where even the weaknesses contribute an endearing charm to the lasting resonance that this film leaves with the viewer.

    After checking out this review below it has compelled me to rewatch the original movie Jaws again, I've not seen it since the late 70s and never thought I'd watch it again honestly...Don't get me wrong, I liked this movie when I saw it back then, but hey it's just a shark movie right?...Well this review presented a depth to the movie and the characters that I did not realize on my first viewing decades ago, so this weekend it's Jaws on my big 32inch tv screen lol...

    Where do you start with this clunker of a a movie. Not sure how much they spent on this but it was a total waste of cash. When you see what is actually in the box after the Airforce girl gets on the plane all semblance or reality goes out the window with the bathwater and the baby for that matter. Some special effects are ok but mainly its the hokey acting , unbelievability of what you are watching and the bitch slapping they give the girl at the start of the movie is a total turnoff. Not sure what the motive was for making this rubbish was but it was over before it began . Suspension of believability comes down like a lead balloon right at the start . 2 out of 10 . And that's being generous.
