Dunkirk in Theaters Now

This is not the first film about the battle of Dunkirk—it is the most impressive looking film made about it. More than 90% of the film was shot with an IMAX camera and minimum dialogue that just draws you into the emotion of the film. At times I felt like I was walking on the beach with the soldiers. It’s a feeling when watching films in an IMAX theater.

1958 film, Dunkirk

Behind the story: In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.



Now listen to director Christopher Nolan with actors Jack Lowden, Barry Keoghan, Mark Rylance, Fionn Whitehead, Harry Styles, and producer Emma Thomas talk about making the film.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Opens September 22!

Kingsman: The Golden CircleWhen we watched Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was a fun kickass film, I said, I would watch these characters again if they planned on doing a franchise. Now I am excited to see the new installment, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The back story: Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman-an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Sir Elton John, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges

Director Matthew Vaughn co-wrote the film with Jane Goldman, based upon the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. The cast: Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Sir Elton John, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges.

Besson’s New Film is Visually Stunning

Valerian and The City of a Thousand PlanetsValerian and The City of a Thousand Planets is not The Fifth Element or Guardians of the Galaxy.

I know this film was a long awaited passion for director Luc Besson, it is based on the long running French science fiction comics series Valérian (1967-2010), created by writer Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières, which Besson read as a kid.

Valerian is visually stunning to look at—the colors that have been achieved along with the worlds that Besson has created with some impressive CGI makes you want to keep watching and you can see Besson’s eye for details in every scene. Especially the opening sequences and the scene with Rihanna as a shape-shifting entertainer named Bubble.

I like director Luc Besson’s work ethics but the film didn’t do much for me. The film felt long and tedious. I thought some of the dialogue could have been shorter and it tried too hard to be funny—but that’s how I felt. That is why I find it interesting to hear what filmmakers say about their film projects and here you can listen to director Besson and the two lead actors, Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan talk about their experiences on making the film.


Valerian cast

The plot: In the 28th century, Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha-an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

The film also stars Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Kris Wu, Sam Spruell, and Herbie Hancock. Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets is in theaters July 21.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Yes, we were looking forward to this film and it didn’t disappoint. This film is really intense and beautiful to watch. There is so much humanity and not from the humans. It was a great investment of my time in watching this film. The whole trilogy was a treat. APES Rule!

The plot: In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
