What to expect from Game of Thrones Season 9

Game of Thrones season 9
We all want to know what is coming next in the final season of Game of Thrones. There is plenty of time and information to speculate what the end of the series will be. The 8th season may have let us with the typical build-ups and surprises but also set the stage for completion of the series. The continuation experienced in the seasons has led to easy clues of what to expect. The supporting actors have fallen away one after another and left the lead players to take center stage in an exciting change of events.

Here are some of the possible storyline outcomes we expect to see based on the build-up of the rest of the previous seasons.

1. Long Episodes

The 8th season featured a couple of long episodes at the end, which lasted 71 and 81 minutes respectively. With only 6 episodes in the final season, we expect the longest seasons ever. Much is left to guessing as there is little revealed about the length of the entire seasons. The longest episode so far could be the shortest in the premiere.

2. Destruction of the Iron Throne

Although Jon Snow is the most favorite person to sit on the Iron Throne, do not be quick to place a bet on it regardless of the odds on gambling sites. Remember this is the same show that allowed the most favorite and seemingly main character, Ned Stark even before the 1st season ended. Since then, we have seen deaths of characters we love, massive destruction of humans, separation of families, cities, and creatures, all in the name of battles for the Iron Throne.

After Kaleesi earns the right to the throne after defeating white walkers, she will have a short stint at the throne and decide that the best thing would be to burn the seat. Learning from the wise Tyrion about the truth of the seat will change her mind about its pride. This is where her father used to burn people and her emancipator instincts will take over to free the people of Westeros.

3. The Defeat of the Knight King

This threat has increasingly spread across the seven kingdoms. The night king has grown stronger with every battle as he multiplies the size of his army. After acquiring one dragon during a fight with John Snow where Kaleesi came to save the courageous men, the night king has grown into a real threat to the entire population and their authorities. Only Jon Snow seems to believe in conquering the Night King. Everyone else predicts that the Night King is the ultimate winner of the Iron Throne.

Although the author leaves us all guessing, we know enough than to trust his build-ups as they all end up in disappointments.

4. A Major Character will Fall to the wrath of the Night King

Although it may not be easy to tell who the victim will be, it is easy to tell that a major character will be killed by the ruthless and merciless Night King. If he could take a dragon, he is poised to fell one major king. Considering the author’s style of script writing, a character who is loved by the audience is a likely victim. Although the mother of dragons, Jon Snow, and Arya Stark has grown into the most favorite characters, they are unlikely victims.

The Death of Cersei

Cersei is that queen who we all love to hate. George Martin ensured the audience had a place to place their blames for all the evil in the story. Burning down an entire city at the end of GOT season 6 reminds us all of her utmost wickedness. She will take down anyone who opposes her interests for whatever reason. She will eliminate enemies as quickly and as easily like it was part of her daily chores. We all want her down and hope the final season will be the end of her story.

With only six episodes left in the final season, we will have to wait and see if her unborn child is in fact, based on truth or another scheme. Since the white-walkers are the biggest common enemy, it is hard to include her participation in the war with her attitude. This leaves her vulnerable and the likely target to die under the wrath of the Night King. We also predict that she cannot go alone and will have to slay her brother, Jaime before she breaths her last.

 Scary movies 2017 – Annabelle: Creation 2017

Main Cast: Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto

Director:  David F. Sandberg

Annabelle: Creation 2017“Annabelle: Creation” the ( Scary movies 2017 ) is a supernatural horror film produced by New Line Cinema, Atomic Monster Productions, and The Safran Company. The film was released on 19th June 2017 and is the sixth edition to The Conjuring series. “Anabelle Creation” follows the origin story of the Anabelle doll and is set in the years between 1943-1955.

After a disappointing start to the Anabelle spinoff movie released in 2014, “Anabelle: Creation” offers the franchise to redeem itself after coming up with a relatively decent plot topped up with those classic Conjuring jump scares. The storyline is simple as it tells its viewers about how the Annabelle doll came into being after a couple purposely let a demon live in their closet in exchange to see their daughter’s spirit who had initially passed away in a car accident. Eventually, the demon lets loose, takes over the soul of a little orphan girl and before we know it, there is all sorts of chaos lurking within the film.

Out of all the other themes, one of the most prominent one is how the film portrays the failure of religion to stop the forces of darkness. While we get to see how religion -especially the bible in particular- always plays a major part in repenting demons, the sequence of “Anabelle: Creation” features a lot of priests failing to take back the soul of the girl from the demon. The film even goes as far as displaying how a closet surrounded by the verses of the bible fail to effect Anabelle in any such way. The demon still ends up devouring several individuals and eventually escaping through the closet hole.

Moving on to the talented cast and their respective characters, Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto play as the married couple who own the orphanage. One of the more intriguing aspects of the film is how despite their characters knowing about the demon living inside the house, the couple still happily lets in young girls in the orphanage in hopes of redeeming themselves. Additionally, they are revealed to be just as helpless and traumatized by the whole situation. It can be clearly how “Annabelle: Creation” does not feature a protagonist character who eventually shows up and saves the day. Rather, all of the surrounding characters are portrayed no more than victims to the demon.

Regardless of the plot and setup, “Anabelle: Creation”, like all the franchise’s previous editions, has been well criticized for its dependency on jump scares. While there are were other options available as well, the filmmakers distinctively went for overdoing the suspense to a point, where it was easy perceive a jump scare would soon take place.

Overall, “Annabelle: Creation” is a decent, well-produced film that has certainly managed to impress its fans. Although undoubtedly the franchise still has a long way to go, “Annabelle: Creation” has set the tone and anticipation for its sequel which is set to release in 2020.

Annabelle: Creation 2017 Official Trailer

Batman Begins (2005)

Batman Begins (2005)I was a fan of Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns. I was also a fan of Michael Keaton’s work as Batman in both of those films. However, I was not a fan of what Joel Schumacher did with the series, leading to its death in 1997 when Batman & Robin was released. Since then, I’ve been able to forgive Joel Schumacher. Besides, he’s directed some good movies (A Time To Kill, The Lost Boys, Phone Booth).
Well, to my very own surprise, I was actually looking forward to seeing Batman Begins, because it was being directed by Christopher Nolan. I’ve only seen one movie by him – Insomnia – which I enjoyed.
In Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan explores the origins of the Batman legend and his emergence as a force for good in Gotham. Bruce Wayne (played to perfection by Christian Bale), who has been seeking vengeance since childhood for his parents’ deaths, whom were murdered infront of him, heads to Asia, where he trains with ninja Ra’s Al-Ghul (Ken Watanabe) and his aide, Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson).
Upon returning to Gotham, Bruce Wayne finds his city to be terrorized by crooks. However, with the help of Lucius Fox (Morgan Freemean) and Alfred (Michael Caine), Bruce Wayne transforms into Batman.
Batman sets out to take down the various schemes set in motion by individuals such as Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson), Dr. Jonathan “Scarecrow” Crane (Cillian Murphy), and a mysterious third party. However, only his childhood friend Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes) and rising cop James Gordon (Gary Oldman) believe that the metropolis can be saved.
Director Christopher Nolan, unlike previous director Joel Schumacher, has taken the Batman series seriously. He has made the film and character darker than any other previous director, including Tim Burton. Here’s a film where we understand why Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego is Batman. Here’s a film where we get truly creepy villains. Here’s a film that’s in the running to be one of the best movies of the year. is movie considered as Must Watch Movies

Bewitched (2005)

Bewitched (2005)Isabel Bigelow (Nicole Kidman) decides quit her life as a witch, and move to the L.A. Valley to live a more normal, human life. She meets Jack Wyatt (Will Ferrell), an actor who’s trying to revive his career by playing the lead role, Darrin, in the remake of the old “Bewitched” TV show. Jack then decides that Isabel would be the perfect choice to play his TV wife, Samantha. But what Jack doesn’t know is that Isabel just happens to be a witch in real life.
Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, and Michael Caine, who plays Isabel’s father, are very likeable in this movie. However, every once in a while, a scene will lack comedic energy. But then it’s followed by a very amusing scene. Then that’s followed by another energy-less scene. The cycle continues. Even a cameo with Steve Carrell, at the end, isn’t as funny as it’s supposed to be.
I barely recommend Bewitched to be seen in theaters. If it’s possible, it’s better to hold it off until DVD

I strongly believed that Be Cool was going to definitely be good when the first trailer arrived. But after viewing Be Cool, I have to agree with critics that it isn’t good at all, or for that matter, cool. Which is very surprising, because how can it not be cool when it has such a cool cast?

Be Cool (2005)

Be Cool (2005)Most people who go see Be Cool won’t know that it is a sequel to 1995’s Get Shorty, because ads aren’t pitching it as a sequel (I don’t even find the word “sequel” in the film’s poster), so when people view Be Cool, which actually pokes fun at sequels, people will be very confused. Not only that, but Be Cool repeats many jokes from the much better film Get Shorty, though it completely tells it wrong. You know, when someone tells you a joke, you tell someone else, and they tell someone else, remembering only the punchline, but forgetting the story, which is key to getting a good laugh. For example, the dance scene between John Travolta and Uma Thurman was done a lot better in Pulp Fiction, which in that film it was entertaining to watch, when in this film it’s painful to sit through.
It may seem as if I came out of Be Cool hating it, which I didn’t. It actually has some “okay” moments, which are provided by the charismatic Rock. Unfortunately, it’s nothing more than a decent rental.

Attention: Boogeyman does not cause shivers, creeps, scares, and/or jumps. It does, however, cause you to scream once you have realized that you overpaid 9 bucks for, literally, a piece of shit.

Boogeyman (2005)

Boogeyman (2005)A young man named Tim (Barry Watson) can’t get over some terrible experiences he had in his childhood bedroom. No, it isn’t another Michael Jackson molestation case. He reluctantly returns to the house he grew up in to face his fears and discover whether they are real or imagined.
I might be jumping ahead of myself, but I swear, I should write the director of Catwoman an apology letter for being too rough on him in my review, because after viewing Boogeyman, it is probably one of the worst movies of ALL-TIME. Yeah, maybe I did jump ahead of myself, but comparing it to Catwoman should be enough proof that it is definitely awful.
Yeah, I think I seriously should’ve stayed home.

“The most stigmatized people in Sonagachi, Calcutta’s red light district, are not the prostitutes, but their children. In the face of abject poverty, abuse, and despair, these kids have little possibility of escaping their mother’s fate or for creating another type of life. Yet, these children of prostitutes embark on a transformational journey.” — A plot summary at Yahoo! Movies. I couldn’t have summed it up better myself.

Born Into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids (2004)

Born Into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kids (2004)One of the children, I believe his name is Avigit, has a natural talent at photography. It’s really sad to see that some of these children won’t be allowed to succeed in life.
After viewing Born Into Brothels, I still thought Super Size Me should’ve won Best Documentary, but now I think that that Born Into Brothels was well worth the award. Why? If Hotel Rwanda won Best Picture, many would’ve thought back on how they could’ve (and should’ve) tried to help sooner. But Born Into Brothels win will now open the eyes to people that this didn’t happen 10 years ago, it is happening right now. So, while Super Size Me is just popcorn fun, Born Into Brothels is very moving, because the children who have natural talent, like Avigit, won’t be able to explore upon that talent. It’s very sad to see that only one child out of the many children succeeds. Without a doubt, I recommend it.

Assault on Precinct 13 (2005)

Assault on Precinct 13 (2005)During a snowy New Year’s, a mobster is temporarily jailed at the soon-to-be-closed police station, Precinct 13. A crew of policemen and prisoners, even a secretary and a shrink, must band together to fight off a gang that wants to free the mobster.
Assault on Precinct 13 is surprisingly suspenseful, funny, and overall, a good movie. But was it because I had low expectations for it? That’s probably it. Although, I could’ve done without either of John Leguizamo or Ja Rule’s characters.
It was definitely a surprise for being a January release. This is one my favorite movie so it belongs to the list of Hollywood films which is a must watch movie

Baadasssss! (2003)

Baadasssss! (2003)First of all, what a great movie title! Oh, and trust me, the great movie title isn’t the only thing that’s great about this movie.

I wasn’t fully aware of what this film was really going to be about, but with so many great reviews that it’s been getting, I just had to check it out.

The movie is about Melvin Van Peebles (played by his son, Mario Van Peebles) independent film called Sweet Sweetback’sBaadasssss! Song, which is about a real brotha taking it to the Man – it got an X-rating. This movie shows the struggle for independent filmmakers who sometimes have to self-finance there own work. Baadasssss! even shows us how the great “Earth, Wind & Fire” got started.

All in all, some great performances are included in this movie. I’m hoping that at least Mario Van Peebles gets an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of his father.

 

BAD NEWS BEARS

The Bad News Bears (1976)Billy Bob Thornton takes off the Bad Santa outfit, but leaves the attitude when he plays Buttermarker, an exterminator when sober, a baseball coach when half-drunk.
Movie Guide, Chapter 2, Section 101: If you’ve seen one children’s sports movie, then you’ve seen ’em all.
It’s no different here, where we get the same story: The team of misfits with a huge losing streak turn into unlikely contenders. Oops! Did I spoil it? However, it’s a remake of a supposed 1976 classic, so at that time, I’m sure it was considered original.
Speaking of the original, I’ve never seen it. I’ve heard that director Richard Linklater’s (Before Sunset, School of Rock) faithful to the original, though. If that’s the case, then I have no interest in seeing the original. I thought that Richard Linklater’s direction was very sloppy, even a little amateurish.
It’s sad to see that the kids aren’t interesting at all. I thought every single one was terrible at acting. Why does every freakin’ kid have to kick the dirt when they’re upset? It drove me crazy!
Worst of all, Bad News Bears isn’t that funny. You could tell where the film wanted us to laugh, but we didn’t, because it wasn’t funny. However, I did enjoy the scenes where we had Billy Bob Thornton and Greg Kinnear making fun of each other. I thought that worked, at least.
Richard Roeper pointed out a few errors in the film that I noticed right of the bat. Among them, Buttermaker’s daughter’s (Sammi Kraft) mother was said to attend the championship game, but we never see her showing up. Are we supposed to assume that the daughter lied or that she really did not show up? I mean, wouldn’t that get Buttermaker a bit steamed about his ex not showing up to their daughter’s big game? I think that the writers accidently forgot to solve that issue.
What a very disappointing film.

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN

Brokeback Mountain (2005) Must Watch Movies - list of Hollywood filmsIn Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, Ennis (Heath Ledger), a ranch hand, and Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal), a rodeo cowboy, take a summer job tending a flock of sheep at Brokeback Mountain. They unexpectedly fall in love, but living in conservative times, the two are afraid to publicly show their love for one another. Both of them don’t even know how to continue with that love after their summer job comes to an end. However, time itself changes their lives when both of them go their separate ways and get married. Michelle Williams’ plays Ennis’ wife, Alma, and Anne Hathaway plays Jack’s wife, Lureen. By exchanging postcards, Ennis and Jack meet once a year at Brokeback Mountain to continue with their love; keeping it a secret which only Brokeback Mountain itself knows of.
The entire cast, including Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Michelle Williams provided great performances. It was also nice to see Anne Hathaway in a different role that she is used to. Anna Faris provided a funny cameo. She always seems to turn unexpectedly in great movies (May, Lost In Translation).
I must say that Brokeback Mountain is the beautiful story of the endurance and power of love between two people. We thankfully live in a time where you can openly love someone who happens to be the same sex. Ennis and Jack did not. However, America (and other countries as well) do not recognize same sex marriage. For reasons to not get into a political debate, I will keep my beliefs to myself. But it should be noted that Brokeback Mountain makes a giant statement: Ain’t no mountain high, ain’t no valley low, ain’t no river wide enough, that will keep Ennis and Jack’s love from each other.Watch this movie on PrimeWire

Hostel (2005)

Hostel (2005) - Must Watch Movies - list of Hollywood filmsFor someone who absolutely hated Eli Roth’s earlier film, Cabin Fever, it was a bit surprising that I was actually looking forward to one of his films. Maybe having Quentin Taratino’s name tagged on Hostel cleared the way for any possible mess. Unfortunately, Hostel is a giant mess. Hostel begins and ends on such a ridiculous level. My final thoughts were that I was seriously watching a pornographic film that included less than 30 minutes of horror. It is released in the month of January for a reason, folks!Watch this movie on PrimeWire

 

Munich (2005)

Munich (2005)Stephen Spielberg’s Munich stars Eric Bana as Avner, who secretly leads a team that are brought together to execute an operation that will assassinate those responsible for planning the killings of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
When watching Munich, I was blown away by the beautiful scenery and tragic story. Munich contained many scenes of pure passion, tragedy, and edge-of-your-seat thrills. Sometimes, those scenes all happened at the same time.
Put it on your must-watch list, because it is definitely one of the best movies of the year.

Along Came Polly (2004)

Along Came Polly (2004)At the beginning of the film we see Reuben (Ben Stiller) getting married to Lisa (Debra Messing from TV’s Will & Grace), but during the honeymoon we witness Lisa fall for a French scuba instructor (Hank Azaria). As a result, Reuben returns to New York City, but his best friend, and former child star, Sandy (played by a hilarious Philip Seymour Hoffman), helps him out through the loss by inviting him to a party, and during the party, along comes Polly (Jennifer Aniston), Reuben’s former classmate.

A lot of critics have been saying that “Along Came Polly” is trying to copy “There’s Something About Mary”, and I agree, and a lot of critics have been saying that “Along Came Polly” was not a funny movie, but I disagree.

There is no doubt that this movie has a lot of flaws, but this movie also supplies a great number of laughs, most of those laughs are provided by Philip Seymour Hoffman, and I loved his “sharted” line, which made me laugh so hard that I actually cried, and no movie has done that since “Bruce Almighty”, and that was WAY back in May of 2003.
So, with its flaws, “Along Came Polly” was still a kick-ass comedy, and I’m sure that you will have a great time as well.

AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)

AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)To quote my Catwoman review, “I don’t think any movie this year could be worse than Catwoman.” Buzz! I guess I was absolutely wrong, because Alien vs. Predator easily fits the bill as being worse than Catwoman, which was once thought of being impossible.

What’s the story? Dear God, I’d embarrass the cast and crew, as well as myself, to try to make sense of the lame story. Most importantly, the PG-13 rating really hurt the movie a lot, because no “Alien” movie and no “Predator” movie should be rated PG-13. Not ever. Man, Freddy vs. Jason had an idiotic story, but at least it had many laughs to keep us entertained. Here, Alien vs. Predator has and carries zero interest into us.

Jeez, the story is lame, the graphics are lame, the dialogue is lame, the acting is even lamer, and overall, the movie is lame times five.

Want to see some real action? Rent the first “Predator” movie, as well as the first two “Alien” movies. No one should be put through this kind of torture, so don’t see it. Watch this movie on PrimeWire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)Entering his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft Wizardry, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), now 14 years old, has been mysteriously drafted to participate in the dangerous Tri-wizard Tournament, where he must battle a dragon, hold his breath underwater, and run through a scary maze.
What I loved most about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was that we are witnessing Harry Potter maturing. Here, in the fourth installment, Harry Potter develops a crush on a schoolmate. Honestly, I think it’s great to see Harry Potter and his friends Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) grow throughout these films. I really do not want them to be replaced by younger actors.
The beautiful direction, cinematography, and special effects of Harry Potter and the Goblet Fire all showcase for a fantastic time at the movies. Even if the movie does seem to be exceedingly long (running at 2 hours and 30 minutes), no one under the age of 13 should skip this film. Yes, the PG-13 rating is right on the money. It’s truely terrifying with its dark but beautiful visuals.
Throughout the year, I have successfully kept secret what my favorite movie of the year has been. Now that we are getting closer to where I will write my end-of-the-year list, I must keep my favorite movie of the year a complete secret. However, I cannot help but state that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is my favorite movie of the year, so far.  You can also watch Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The Amityville Horror (2005)

The Amityville Horror (2005) On November 14, 1974, police received a frantic phone call that led them to a nightmarish crime scene at the Defeo residence in Amityville, Long Island – an entire family had been slaughtered in their beds. In the days that followed, Ronald Defeo confessed to methodically shooting his parents and four siblings while they slept, claiming “voices” in the house drove him to commit the grisly murders.


One year later, George (Ryan Reynolds) and Kathy Lutz (Melissa George), along with her three children from a previous marriage, moved into the house that was once the site of the horrific murders. Over the next 28 days, they find that the house might be haunted.
What is up with this year’s horror flicks? Seriously; and it’s not just that. What is up with this year’s horror flicks and using bath scenes? Are they trying to get us scared to take a bath?
The following is a pretty shallow comment, but it deserves mentioning. The two male children, especially the youngest, are very ugly. I swear! They have the dumbest looks on their faces whenever something, or anything, happens.

It’s such a bad horror film. You can easily tell that the film tries so hard to get us scared, but in the end, it just didn’t work out at all. Please, save yourself some time and money, and don’t see it. So it belongs to my favorite list of Hollywood films which is also the Must Watch Movies

 

An Unfinished Life (2005)

An Unfinished Life (2005)An Unfinished Life is about Einer (Robert Redford), who spends his days caring for his best friend, the injured Mitch (Morgan Freeman). Things turn to the interesting when daughter-in-law Jean (Jennifer Lopez), who he blames for his son’s death, turns up on his doorstep with the granddaughter he never knew he had.
Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman, and Jennifer Lopez provide great performances. Unfortunately, I thought that the story between Mitch and the bear was weak. I wasn’t a fan when Jean’s abusive boyfriend shows up at the ranch of Einer. I thought it was headed towards a Jennifer Lopez sequel of Enough. Even so, I’m recommending the film.

 

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)Will Ferrell is one of my favorite comedians. He has been in some really funny comedies within the past few years, and even to my surprise, Elf was one of my favorite movies last year. Seriously, he is one funny man.

In Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell plays… well, an anchorman named… well, Ron Burgundy. The rest of the news team are: Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell, which is his second time playing the role of a TV anchorman), and Champ Kind (David Koechner). All of them and even Ron himself, begin to feel threatened when they’re challenged by a motivated female newscaster, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). A lot of laughs are build from that scenario. Actually, I even think that Anchorman might probably be this summer’s funniest film. I truly wasn’t expecting to laugh as hard as I did during the movie, because the trailer wasn’t comedy heaven or anything of that sort.

I read somewhere that Will Ferrell helped co-write the script to Anchorman, which is probably why Ron Burgundy fits Will Ferrell’s specific talents so much.

The bottom line is that Anchorman is short and sweet, but it gets the laughs. It truly doesn’t get any better than this.

Walk the Line (2005)

Walk the Line (2005)Walk the Line stars Joaquin Phoenix as the legendary country icon Johnny Cash. Reese Witherspoon stars as his wife and bandmate, June Carter Cash. If we’re talking Oscar nominations, here are two very good choices.
I am not the biggest country music fan. Honestly, I cannot stand country music. It’s nails on the chalkboard for my music taste. Because of so, I have never picked up a Johnny Cash album and listened to it, but after seeing Walk the Line, I did just that. How was it? It was pretty damn good. The album that I had picked was The Legend of Johnny Cash. After a few listens, I have to say that my favorite track has to be “Hurt”.
Anyways, Walk the Line is a pretty ordinary film. Nothing special about it, really. Besides the powerful performances, great story, and awesome music, it’s… Come to think of it, all of that doesn’t add up to a pretty ordinary film. No, all of that adds up to one of the best movies of the year. So this is also Must Watch Movies for music lover

Saw II (2005)

Saw II (2005)Last Halloween we faced Saw, which was a huge disappointment, but because it ended up doing very well with DVD sales, we have this Halloween’s Saw II, which wasn’t a disappointment, but maybe because I wasn’t looking forward to it at all.
Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) is back, but only instead of locking up two people in a room, he’s got eight victims, including a detective’s son. So, does that mean that we should expect better deaths? Yes, we should expect better deaths, especially when that’s all the franchise can offer. However, we don’t get better deaths.
I do not encourage readers to catch Saw II in theaters. Do I encourage readers to catch Saw II on DVD instead? No, because that would encourage producers for Saw III. This is Must Watch Movies for horror lover

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (2005)

Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005)Jim Sheridan, who directed In America, also directs Get Rich or Die Tryin’. It stars Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, which tells his story of an orphan who rejects his life of street crime and turns to music. While nowhere near as great and powerful as Eminem’s 8 Mile, 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is still pretty good. At least 50 Cent shows signs of an acting career than rapper-turned-actor Ja Rule. Here, Terrence Howard steps into the movie, but only to provide an advertisement for his other similar and much better film, Hustle & Flow.

Match Point (2005)

Match Point (2005)Woody Allen’s Match Point might be the most creative film since Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. It is that damn good. 21 GramsAdaptation, and AmoresPerros, were very creatively filmed, but Match Point has matched my all-time favorite film in creativity.
In Match Point, Chris (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), an out-of-work tennis pro, gives a tennis lesson to Tom (Matthew Goode), who then invites him to an opera show with his family. Chris meets Tom’s sister Chloe (Emily Mortimer). Chris and Chloe get married. However, Chris finds that he’s drawn to Tom’s ex-fiancee Nola (Scarlett Johansson), an American actress stuggling to find her big break. I will not say anything more, because it will only spoil the film.
I had absolutely no idea what to expect, seeing as I have never seen a Woody Allen film before. Other critics are stating that it is his best movie in over a decade. I say that if there is such a thing as a masterpiece, then Woody Allen’s Match Point is indeed a masterpiece. So this movie is considered as Must Watch Movies

My Favorite Hollywood movies in 2018 till now

“A Quiet Place 2018”  “Silence is survival”

A Quiet PlaceIt’s about a family members survival from creepy monster. They can’t see you but they can hear even a little bit of movement. So, if you make noise without a single bit of moment you will be dead. It focus on the characters & also struggling of a one family survive. From the beginning of the scene, you started feeling curious what is gonna happened next. The environment create a slice movement could finish you. Every scene of fear will tear you apart to imagine the consequences. The characters use sign languages, body languages & amazing facial expressions that is up to the mark. So that spectator like us easily connect through the emotion of that family. Since it has very limited dialogues but director know that how to communicate to the audience without brief the story line. Watching their completely different new way of living. That aspects will noticeable visual treat for audience. Like when they play board game, they use piece of papers in stead of metal pieces.

It’s not jump scary or very loudly presenting horror movie like others. You appreciate these characters most because of their smartness through their acting skills. One lacking of this movie hear most that is told about we can only learn via their story. We don’t know from the outside part of the layer of story telling. But still when you imagine the consequences if they tried to help from others. So that it shows one family that represents the others.

John Krasinski really does a lot as a director thoroughly connects with the audiences with stunning making.

This is a suspense driven thriller which is really very good scary movie. Terrific performance across all of the artists though young kids as well.

It’s a spooky thrilling atmosphere which makes this one as must see.

“Hereditary 2018 “

Fear & Horror can be comes totally different shades from your idea.

HereditaryIt’s about the history of a family. Story unfolds by the death of grandmother. Creepy things like their house & the main protagonist hobby indicating about very intense horrifying something gonna happened next. Because too much silence also justifying via characters oddness. Perhaps you imagines, this story you have seen it before in different forms. But i can assure you that, this skill level are far good than others.

The unexpected situation in every single scene will shock you. Beside creepy imaginary things, the depth of this movie feels very real. Every person will relate themselves as one of the character in their own life itself. Like a disturb child or mother has a history who tries to unfolds the twist. So that, everybody easily connects them through the story.

Director has shown his cleverness the craft of his beautiful works. From the beginning shot till the end this movie feels like an amazing experience. That is chasing you to think as i really miss something to solving the twist. Visual effects & sound effects are stunning. Incredible performance by every artist but tony is absolutely phenomenon.

This movie will shivering you with the feels of horrifying twist & also shock you with many unfolds question.

Upgrade 2018

Upgrade (2018)A man who suddenly undergoes within a tragic accident. In which he loses his beloved wife. By the devastating accident he is in paralyses from the neck to down. A weird man insist to walk him again via his invention. Suddenly through that invention with the helps of his voice he can control his body.

Though it’s about a revenge story, but the story unfolds as dark science fiction world. Which is totally absorb you to the story.

Besides it’s totally experimental works but still everything looks so real with that limited budget.

Logan Marshall-Green he is really perfect here. His acting has perfect balance between every shades of emotions. If you notice you will find that his arms killing someone. But still his face shivering with fear to thinking unknown things gonna happened next.

Upgrade is really very different sci-fy movie with new ideas. Of course it’s must watch one.

Annihilation 2018

story encourage discourse

Annihilation 2018A biologist who signs up for an expatiation to go an unknown area. People are calling that as shiner. It faces a totally unexpectedly beautiful curious wall which has creates many question. Scientist are trying figure out what’s really the wall motives!!!

This movie makes of think it’s has big ideas & also themes to amplifies audience taste. After the characters inside the shiner they discovers many things there. It’s really very different aspects from the others sci-fy movies.

Alex Garland given us really very different story via his direction. Through his story telling he tries to thinks our mind that they are really bad or they surviving from us?

Besides the honorable performance by the artists, superb special effects & very colorful cinematography will mesmerism you.

Annihilation absolutely winner as a sci-fy movie. Don’t try to miss

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Avengers Infinity War (2018) is one of the favorite movie  this year. Its not only me but also millions of movie lovers waited for this mega movie. This movie is written by Christopher Markus (screenplay) based on the super heroes of marvel comics where most of the super heroes sacrifices to their lives to defeat Thanos. The story of this movie is incomplete, so we have to wait for next series to know what will happens with the heroes. I wont like to give a spoiler about the movie. If you are a real Marvel fan, then you must watch this movie (I believe all Marvel fans already watch this movie)

Happy Watching

Personal Experience of Game of Thrones (TV Series 2011–2019 )

Game of Thrones (GOT) Season 8

Image Source: Reddit

Hello everyone, this is the first review I am wringing in this blog (123movies.com). I am not kind of movie or TV Show freak. The first TV show I have watched is 13 Reasons Why. During Watching I made a status on my facebook about the Serial. It was really good to me. I have watched all the Episode of Season 1. Suddenly One of my friends inbox me and asked if I watched Game of thrones. When I said no, he suggested me to watch Game of thrones all episode step by step. Besides, he forbade watching the show now. He told me to start waiting when the final season is on air. I asked him why he was saying like that. Without saying anything, he said “you will understand why I am forbidding you to watch this show now”. Anyway, I was bit excited and started watching the Show.

My experiences about Game of Thrones

I started watching from Episode 1 of season. To be honest, after watching 5 episodes, I feel that it was the worst TV Series I have ever seen. I feel like why people are so excited about this show where as I found it nothing but shit.

I was supposed to write such worst review about the show after watching 10th episode. Suddenly I thought, lets complete the full season so that I can write something in detail. But after watching Episode 10, my mind changed. I started thinking there is really something in this show. So I changed my mind and keep watching the show. Main excitement started from Season 4. From season 4, every single episode was full of excitement. After completing Season 7, I started regretting for not watching this show till then. Now I realize why he told me not to watch the show until final season come out.  

Now I am dying to watch the final season. It’s really hard for me to wait until the next season come out. Season 8 will be the final season of Game of Thrones series which will be on air in 2019. The release date has still not announced yet but on October 23, 2017, Game of Thrones (GOT) season 8 began Filming officially and concluded in July 2018. So hopefully it will comes on premiere on the first half of 2019

Something about Game of Thrones (GOT) Season 8  (Final season)

I know all of you guys already know that season 8 will be the final season of this show. The 8th and the last season of the most popular TV serial Game of thrones will be broadcasted in 2019. This will mark the end of this highly anticipated serial. Even though fans are heart broken on this news of series ending but there is good news for them at the same time. The prequel of Game of thrones is soon going on production. American TV giant HBO has already gave green signal on this.

The scripting of the prequel will be done by Jorge R. Martin with help of Jen Goldman who has already made his mark with super hits like Kickass and Kingsmen:The secret service. The prequel will come with a thousand years old story. The golden era of the world to the darkest night will be brought together in one series. Even though HBO has not made anything explicit, but they have expressed the idea of showcasing the history of Westoros kingdom and the rise of the white walkers. It will also show the intense secret behind the legendary stark family. Fans are having enthusiastic discussion online about the prequel. They are even making up their own stories. But HBO rejects all fans’ theory and claims it to be even bigger than their imagination.

Game of thrones received overwhelming popularity and awards everywhere. The series was made originally based on American writer Jorge R. Martin’s fiction “A song of ice and fire and”. Marting claims the prequel to be completely different. HBO has already appointed a bunch of writers on the project.

 The Last Samurai (2003) Expect to see some of the best performances of the year, and intense battle scenes when you see The Last Samurai, but it does take some time to get us into these best performances and intense battle scenes; and no, Tom Cruise is not one who brings his best performance to this film. Instead, supporting actor, Ken Watanabe, who plays Katsumoto, gives an unbelievable performance from the beginning of the film to the end of the film. And though, Koyuki, who plays Taka, speaks Japanese, and has only a couple of lines, she still gives a feeling of passion to the movie.
Now, I don’t want to sound like Tom Cruise did a terrible job in this movie, which he didn’t, but it’s obvious that he will give a good performance (or great performance, in the case of last year’s Minority Report). But there was just something about his character that didn’t really work.
I mean, I didn’t really like how he was an alcoholic, which turned out to be another Pirates of the Caribbean Johnny Depp performance, which was good in Pirates, since we knew that was going to be a comedy; and I know, the alcohol was to prevent nightmares of a previous war he fought in from happening. But those nightmare-flashback scenes didn’t work, because we never found out what he did in that war to give him nightmares. I have guesses, but I’m not really that sure.
I’m still (barely) recommending this film, because of all the great performances, which could get Oscar-nods, and intense battle scenes, but if you go see it, you’ll notice that quite a bit of chunk of this movie could have been taken off from its 154 minute-long movie.

Read my review about Elizabethtown 2005  and The Day After Tomorrow 2004

Elizabethtown 2005 (Comedy-drama/Drama) Movie Review

Note: The following is more of a story than a review.

I attended a private screening of Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown 2005 not too long ago. I had originally invited the co-host of the site, Everett, but he was away at piano lessons. I then called and invited my good friend Galen at the last minute. He was thrilled to come, even though he had just arrived back from Texas a few hours ago.

So, how was the movie? I’ll get there, I’ll get there!

Galen and I arrived at the movie theater, of which the private screening of Elizabethtown was going to be playing, really early. How early? Try 3 hours and 2 minutes before its showtime. We played in the theater’s arcade for a bit. We then got inside information from an employee that I know. She told me where the line for the private screening would form. Even so, I didn’t want to take any chances and somehow end up at the end of the line, or worse, in the wrong line!

So, what did I do? I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you!

I asked the manager of the private screening where the line would form. He told me that it was going to form outside, which is where my friend the employee told me it was going to form, but he let us hang out in the lobby. He even said that he’d make sure we got our first place spot saved.

Cool, huh? Oh man, it doesn’t stop there!

When the line was forming outside, Galen and I decided to go outside and wait in line. We kind of felt guilty for getting such luck. Besides, the weather outside was very nice. Galen and I played SUPERSTAR (!), and, surprisingly, I got some peeps waiting in line to play as well. We even talked about movies…Cameron Crowe movies.

After we were allowed (back, for Galen and I) inside, we formed a new line. Galen and I were still first in line, as our first place spot was saved for us. Two very attractive women were standing in back of us. We actually talked to them for several minutes. We had some great small talk, you know? But! … Guess what happens next? No, we didn’t ask them for their numbers! The manager of the private screening told everyone that because of a delay, everyone who’s seeing Elizabethtown gets ANYTHING from the snack bar for FREE!

Holy shit.

Yes, the snack bar line was looong, but it was worth it. I got two large Icee’s, a large popcorn, a bottled water, and every single candy known to man: Red Vines, Kit Kat, M&Ms, Crunch, Butterfinger, and another candy that I do not know the name of.

What a fucking great movie experience! Yet, the movie hasn’t even started!

Before I mention anything about Elizabethtown 2005 movie, I should mention that I had previously invited my teacher, Ms. Hendren. Yes, after school it’s still Ms. Hendren. Both Galen and I didn’t think she’d show up, but she did. More awesome was that the two very attractive women standing in back of us in line sat next to Galen. More awesome than that was that Ms. Hendren sat next to me. It was our little movie gang.

Finally, the manager of the private screening talked about the movie for a couple of minutes. People screamed when Orlando Bloom was mentioned, people screamed when Kirsten Dunst was mentioned, and I screamed when Cameron Crowe was mentioned. He told us that we were the first in the whole entire world to see Elizabethtown, which is a great detail to know. He also went on to say that because the film isn’t completely done yet, it does have some technical difficulties. And guess what? When the movie started, the curtain never went up! Already it was having technical difficulties.

Alright, so what did I think of the movie? Well, I actually ended up enjoying it. The screenplay was very refreshing. I even thought that Susan Sarandon’s funeral speech, given at the end of the film, was brilliant. Yes, even Orlando Bloom was surprisingly good. However, as much as I loved Kirsten Dunst, her Southern accent fades in and out throughout the film. Another bad stretch with the film was that it gets pretty lengthy, especially at the end, where Orlando Bloom plays “Finding Waldo”, or in this case, “Finding Kirsten Dunst”. But it definitely does have a very good soundtrack.

Elizabethtown (2005)

I’ve attended a total of three private screenings, with the other two being Troy and the Chronicles of Riddick. This private screening of Elizabethtown was definitely the best of the three.

Take a look of the official trailer of Elizabethtown (2005) Movie
