    The Florida Project

    ★★★★

    I spent this past weekend watching a lot of the Academy nominated films and this Independent film deserves any accolades it gets. This film about life in the projects in Orlando, Florida is great on all levels with the acting performance of Willem Dafoe as the Motel Manager earning him a Best Actor nomination. The little girl Brooklynn Prince is very good considering its her first major film role. Beautifully filmed by Sean Baker whos previous film "Tangerine" I really enjoyed. Highly recommended

    This was one of the better films from this type of hand held camera genre,It was quite well done by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse,these guys probably did not have much of a budget but managed to make a tense horror that for the first half people might think they have been duped but believe me it builds up and then is pretty fast paced,like the locales also,will look for future entries from these two film-makers.

    Still going through Nicholas Cage's filmography this was next in line. Nothing new here in this thriller that reminded me quite a lot of "Hand that rocks the Cradle" but nowhere near as good as that. Nicholas actually seems to take a bit of a backseat here while the drama focuses on the two leads in Gina Gershon and Nicky Whelan. Pretty standard stuff and if you don't get to watch you aren't missing anything.

    For this week's classic I decided to see this one which is also part of the 1001 movies to see. A thief after killing a police officer tries to persuade a woman to run away with him to Italy. A pretty simple plot here and the two main leads Jean Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg are good in their respective roles. Paris is also shown in all its beauty.Well worth a look at.

    The idea of making a horror version of a classic TV series seemed ok on paper but that's where it ended. The movie is full of so many horror clichés, the acting was horrendous, chief villain was just dumb. The movie has no redeeming qualities at all, yeah I know that have B grade movies but this is about a D, Avoid at all costs

  • Hacksaw Ridge

    Hacksaw Ridge

    ★★★½

    Mel Gibson delves back into war stories again as Director and has done a great job of this true story about conscientious objector who refuses to use a gun during the Battle of Okinawa. Andrew Garfield plays Desmond Doss and has researched his character very well. There is quite a lot of religion featured in this but it is a big part of the story. I did find it a bit unrealistic towards the end and am not sure if that actually happened that way or its Hollywoodised. Worth seeing
