Our review of "The Sisters Brothers" can be read on NextBestPicture.com (Link in Bio)
searching was directed by Aneesh Chaganty and stars John Cho as David, a father who’s 16 year old daughter went missing. A local investigation opens up and a detective is “assigned” to the case. But hours later with no leads, David decides to look for clues himself and search the one place no one has checked... his daughters laptop. I went into this movie blind, not seeing a trailer or anything. I just heard good things about it from the scores and from friends who were telling me it was amazing so I decided to check it out and WOW, this movie took me by surprise. I’ll try to keep this review as Dry as possible cause if you haven’t watched this movie yet, I’m gonna need you to drop everything and go find your nearest movie theatre. First off, I just gotta give it to John Cho, this man keeps impressing me more and more and he does such a perfect job in this movie, even if the movie is shot completely from a computer screen. That’s the other thing, the whole movie is shot from either a computer or phone or tv and though we’ve seen it happen before In other movies, it just hasn’t been as good as this one did. The editing and shots were fantastic and didn’t leave you confused at all. (Fun fact: this movie took about a year and a half to edit because of how much time and effort they put into detail and into setting everything up perfectly, the more you know🙃) Legit, Anything you see in screen is important to the story and by the end everything starts to click together and that’s one of the amazing things I loved from This film. How everything you saw and was said meant something and lead to the twist at the end. For me, the twist was awesome, wasn’t expecting that at all, it left my mouth open and left me thinking for a good while after the movie had finished. Please go give this film support if you haven’t cause it’s really one of the best films of the year. #searching #johncho #movies #film #moviereview #cinemas #filmjunkie #mystery #amc #searchingmovie
Pulp Fiction 1994
In an interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio (1994), John Travolta went into details of the many obstacles of tackling his role as Vincent Vega, the most challenging being that of how he was going to show the essence of his character as that of a heroin addict. Never using the drug himself, Quentin Tarantino had Travolta research his character's addiction by speaking to a recovering heroin addict that he (Quentin) knew personally. Travolta asked Tarantino's friend to tell him how could he know what it felt like to be on heroin (without actually using it, of course). Tarantino's friend explained "If you want to get the 'bottom envelope' feeling of that, get plastered on Tequila, and lie down in a hot pool. Then you will have barely touched the feeling of what it might be like to be on heroin." John Travolta then explained that he was ecstatic to tell his wife that he was "told" in order to research aspects of his upcoming roles' character, he had to get plastered on Tequila and lie in a hot pool. He stated she happily joined him at the hotel hot tub, which had shots of Tequila lined from end to end on the railings to assist him in his "research".

Heute präsentiere ich euch einmal einen etwas intimeren Einblick in meine Filmsammlung. Leider musste ich in diesem Jahr aus Platzgründen einiges aussortieren und ein großer Teil musste zudem in den Schränken verschwinden. Es ist nämlich schon schwierig genug, auch nur meine Favorites im Regal zu platzieren, wobei stetig wachsende Franchises mir besonders Sorgen machen (I‘m lookin‘ at you, MCU). Am Ende des Tages bin ich trotzdem sehr stolz auf meine Sammlung und freue mich sie mit euch teilen zu können. - M 🎥🍿 #filmjunkie #podcast #germanpodcast #movies #series #filme #serien

Our review of "Her Smell" can be read on NextBestPicture.com (Link in Bio)
Happy anniversary to Rush Hour, released 20 years ago today. Although some of it hasn't aged all that well, Rush Hour shines based on the oddball chemistry between Chris Tucker & Jackie Chan. They're an unlikely duo but they make for some truly funny comedic moments. I'm not sure I need another Rush Hour but this one is worth revisiting. Are you a fan of Rush Hour? Sound off! In the meantime, here are some fun facts about the film:
1. According to director Brett Ratner, this film was the first film to be released in the U.S. featuring Jackie Chan in an English-speaking role without any kind of dubbing. According to Ratner, before this film Chan always had his voice dubbed over in his English-speaking roles because of his uncertainty in speaking the language. For this film, however, Ratner convinced him to forgo the dubbing as it would lend to the authenticity of his character.
2. Chris Tucker improvised much of his dialogue, as he normally does in his films. According to director Brett Ratner, during the scene at Grauman's where Detective Carter bribes Stucky for information, there was so much improvisation between Chris Tucker and John Hawkes that they almost did not think they could edit it together as a coherent conversation. There are still continuity errors in the dialogue for this reason.
3. Jackie Chan was almost killed filming the scene where he is almost crushed by metal boxes. They slammed together about a quarter of a second after his head was clear.
4. Martin Lawrence was the original choice for Carter. Eddie Murphy was offered the role of Carter, but he turned it down to make Holy Man instead. David Chapelle, Will Smith, and Tupac Shakur were all considered for the role of Carter.
5. After filming and editing was completed, a rough test cut was shown to audiences - who demanded more Jackie Chan action scenes. The crew went back for a few more filming days and added in the scene where Chan fights multiple bad guys during the closing confrontation and the giant vase scene.
6. One of several films released in 1998 to feature the new blue Pepsi cans, which were introduced that year.

Time to return to some Italian giallo with The Case of the Scorpion's Tail.
This murder mystery tale begins with a young women and the death of her older rich husband under mysterious circumstances. The young women soon discovers she is not the only one that wants the money he left behind, and so starts a string of murders. A detective, the police and a reporter all start to investigate and attempt to put an end to these gruesome murders.
Firstly ill say, like many giallo films this one also looks beautiful, with exotic shots and views of Athens and the greek coastline. That giallo charm and feel is also present. There is also plenty of visually pleasing cinematography, with the use colour, like reds and greens.
The mystery itself did keep me engaged throughout but it did lack a certain factor to really suck me into the mystery and detective work carried out by the main characters. Maybe it lacked twists and turns or the ones it did provide failed to truly invest me in the story. The kills are also just okay, they also lack an edge and they fail to truly shock.
The cast all do a fine job, plenty of familiar faces are present here.
The Case of the Scorpion's Tail is a slightly above average giallo that lacks that X factor to elevate it among the greats of the genre.

Annihilation is directed by Alex Garland and stars Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Issac and more and is the story of a biologist who signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don’t apply. I heard a lot of fuzz about this movie, it was getting really good reviews and everyone was loving it. I can’t say the same. I did not like this movie at all. To me it was boring from start to finish and nothing really grabs my attention or makes me want to keep watching. It drags so much and it’s so slow and boring. Has some scenes that I guess are somewhat entertaining like the crocodile scene, but other then that it was very boring for me. I know many will disagree and say That i just don’t understand the story, but this just isn’t my type of film🤷🏻♂️. I do gotta give it props, this movie looks beautiful, all the plants and trees and pretty much the whole thing, looked fantastic but that’s it for the goods. They also have this dumb, not needed story with Natalie Portmans character and an affair and that made me hate the movie even more. Like I said, many will enjoy this movie and it has good ratings but I just didn’t like it at all #annihilation #natalieportman #oscarissac #tessathompson #movie #film #moviereview #filmjunkie

The Predator (2018)
Wasn’t good for me, I really didn’t know what was going on for the first half of the movie. Only thing that made this movie enjoyable was the comedy with the crazy crew, felt almost like this was a Predator parody. .

I grew up with the @grandintheatre
and now live a few blocks from the @narocinema
so it's no wonder a love of film came so easily 🎥 Did You Know? William S. Wilder, who built the Naro, also built the Grandin and several other independent, one-screen theaters in Virginia? 🍿🎞️🎫 And today, the Naro has a video store- @naroexpandedvideo
-where you can rent almost any movie!! It's heaven. The video store recently had a 22nd birthday celebration, and I won this cute bag and other Naro-themed goodies 🎉 -Hannah
The Forest of the Lost Souls is a little gem from 2017 that I'd recommend you check out.
The film follows two people, a young girl and an old man. That happen to meet in a forrest where people come to end their lives. What starts as a little banter and some physiophical discussion soon turns into something very sinister.
While the plot does not go in the direction I was hoping for the horror route they take is still engaging and kept me invested in the film. It effectively carries out the horror as well. It takes it times and keeps you guessing. Due to the low budget it feels quite real at times as well.
I think may favourite thing about the film is the way it is shot and looks. The black and white presentation really does elevate the film, combined with some really good cinematography. The whole film is gorgeous in its minimalistic style, its definitely got that arthouse feel and look to it. The forrest and country side looks hauntingly beautiful.
Music is also utlitised in a way that enhances the film and visuals on screen. It really consolidates the subtle or eery vibes throughout. Before and after the horror elements commence the film creates a great atmosphere that compliments what is occurring, whether it be melancholy or evil.
The Forest of the Lost Souls caught me by surprise, I found myself liking it quite a bit. If you don't appreactive the story, the visuals and soundtrack are worth it alone.

Skyfall is directed by Sam Mendes and is the 3rd James Bond movie in Daniel Craig’s series. When Bonds latest mission goes wrong it leads to a turn of events. Undercover agents all around the world are exposed and MI6 is attacked. This leaves M to relocate the agency. With MI6 compromised, M turns to the only person she can trust: James Bond. Now with the help of Q, Bond heads to the shadows and follows a trail that leads him to Silvia, a man from M’s past. This movie is a masterpiece. I’ll just say it🤷🏻♂️. It’s probably the best bond movie so far after Casino Royale. Daniel Craig once again does an incredible job as James Bond. The villain in this is also amazing. One of the best ones/ if not the best one yet. Just loved how he was connected to M in a way and loved how he was always one step ahead of MI6 and Bond. The dialogue and characters work perfectly together. We also get to find out more of bonds background in this film which is probably one of the best parts in this film. And once again the action is great and attention grabbing. We also get many references to other Films and they bring back characters too. In other words, I love this movie, I recommend it, and go watch it.
