MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK
“In 1971, a young and disorientated British soldier is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the deadly streets of Belfast.”
A character drama that has some thrilling action Jack O’Connell owning the movie. First director Yann Demange does an incredible job of surrounding O’Connell with white knuckle tension and a riveting story from beginning to end. The realistic nature of the whole film is my favorite aspect. It’s not trying to be sleek or polished. It simply wants to feel like a real war movie and it pulls that off better than most. (4.25/5)
Rumble Fish (1983)
“Rusty James, an absent-minded street thug struggles to live up to his legendary older brother’s reputation, and longs for the days when gang warfare was going on.”
One of my favorite Francis Ford Coppola films where there is a dream-like quality that makes you question whether or not the events of the film actually happen. It’s a teen gang film that’s more mature than most around this time with one of Mickey Rourke’s best performance while leading an all-star 80s cast. Matt Dillon, Dennis Hopper, Diane Lane, Chris Penn, Nic Cage, Laurence Fishburne, Tom Waits, and others. (4.5/5)
The Exorcists III (1990)
“A police Lieutenant uncovers more than he bargained for as his investigation of a series of murders, which have all the hallmarks of the deceased Gemini serial killer, leads him to question the patients of a psychiatric ward.”
All I have to say is watch this for Brad Douriff’s performance alone. He’s chilling and this has one of the best jump scares that is really well done. (3.5/5)
