Tom Hardy as the next Bond? What do you guys think about this latest rumour?

I'm not keen. I'm not sure who though.

I am with you northern. can't picture him as a Bond.

Bond has to be English, right?

{Ed001's Note - Hardy is English, he is from London. But Bond should be smooth, Hardy is not really all that smooth. I would go with Idris Elba, just because he does everything else so why not Bond as well?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah. Hardy is a beast. He is not smooth. A bad-ass Bond villain maybe, but definitely not Bond himself. I actually thought about Pattinson. He have that 'swag'. But he is Batman now. Elba is the Black Superman.

Loki is from London too, right?

{Ed001's Note - Hiddleston? I don't know where he is from but he is English. But he is a baddie, hence why he drives a Jaguar, because it's good to be bad. But then Bond is not really a goodie I suppose, as he is a bit of an arse. If Bond was real he probably would drive a Jag thinking about it, so maybe Hiddleston would be a good choice.}

Hiddleston is a good shout to be fair, Mcavoy would be good as well.

To horror films fans, I think I have just discovered one hidden gem; Z. Not to be mistaken to World War Z, because this isn't about zombies, but a good ghost story with some scary scenes and jumpscares. It shows the ghost/monster in glimpses, which with all other films who did this, makes it more effective and scary. The story doesn't waste time but I think the last 15 or so minutes is a bit too much; I could tell from the start of that last 15 minutes how the film will end. So its a bit of a turn-off with the ending/finale because of this. They should have just shorten it, and it will be definitely be a better ending (but will definitely shorten the entire film to 70 mins instead of 80+ or 90). Another I would critize and a bit meh is the house on fire sequence. The CGI of the fire and the house is too obvious, and I felt the scenes will work just fine if the house is not on fire. There's no clear reason as well on how the fire started, so I think that is just pointless.

Interesting story, simple and familiar but not "cheesy", nice scary scenes and jumpscares, and really creepy ghost. I really recommend this one.

Just watched the new tenet and tbh I was blown away the scene with the aeroplane must cost some money to do that scene but recommend worth watching.

I really envy you Greyhound. The film already released here in my country, but I don't think I will be going to cinemas anytime soon. Have to wait for either the DVD or digital release; which judging by past Nolan's movies, it might take awhile!

Hi Ed’s and readers,
Long time fan of the lfc site. I noticed ed001 posted a link to a movie talk site, and boy was I happy to see that.

Watched a drama flick the other day called Scent of A Woman (1993) that tells the story of a high school student (Chris O’Donnell) who takes a job as an assistant to an irritable, blind, former United States colonel. (Al Pacino) The colonel wants one last tour of the ‘battlefield’ in New York before he plans to end his own life.

Absolutely amazing movie, had high hopes as soon as I saw Pacino’s name as I am a big fan of his. The acting was tremendous, you’d think he was a legitimate blind man. I’ll admit I got teary eyed a few times during the movie, really hit me in the feels. Must watch movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it. Pretty sure Pacino snagged the academy award for best actor for this role.

Have any of the Ed’s or posters seen this? Let me know if you thought it was as good as I did.

{Ed001's Note - I did see this a long time ago, around the time it came out, but didn't enjoy it. However back then I would have been bored by anything that wasn't just non-stop action. }

Time to re-watch it again Ed?

{Ed001's Note - maybe, if I get time.}

I think I watched part of it. But I didn't really like Pacino (please don't ask me why, I still don't know. I used to avoid his films. The only one film I watched until finish was The Recruit).

I used to choose films based on the actors. Not anymore though. But I still feel that I still don't like him. Hehe

This isn't a recent film; 5 or more years old already. But just watched it, and man, how did I miss this in the first place.

Fences, stars Denzel Washington, pretty much centered around Denzel's character and his family, and the conflicts they are facing; from being poor, to his brother mentally impaired causing problems, proud of his younger life but denied his son chances to do something better but instead wanted his son to work to help the family, had an affair, and a few others. It's a truly moving and powerful film. At first I really thought this film is based on a true story, a biography or some sort. I googled it and actually it is not. Its actually even directed by Denzel himself.

A great film. It's Denzel's, so it's not really a surprise.

{Ed001's Note - I have seen that listed many times but never got round to watching it. I will have to make the time to see it based on your review. The name just never made me think 'I want to see it'.}

Fences isn't one fancy title, I agree Ed01. It doesn't tell you anything, or not even trying to attract anyone. Fences is actually part of the film though, literally and metaphorically as well.

Denzel's character isn't really a character that you'd love, but the way he (and other characters) pulls you into it emotionally - you will feel angry, you will feel pity, and then sad - it is so moving.

Now I sound like a salesman, trying to sell you a copy of a DVD.

{Ed001's Note - the next time I see it listed as on I will make sure to check it out.}

Never said or asked this to anyone ever before. I did notice that the Black Panther was somehow "thinner" compared to his first appearance in Civil War. Was it really indeed he was thinner? Or its just me?

What a loss. Knowing that he fought for four years, and he did some of all those movies during that period, really showed that he was strong and a fighter. RIP Bosman.

Project Power

There is this pill; whoever takes it, they will get random superpowers. A young girl is dealing with the pills. A local cop is fighting against those criminals who take the pills to do crimes. Then there is an ex-military guy looking for her daughter.

Oh I like the story. I like the casts. I like the songs and the raps. I like quite a number of things in this film. Maybe the action is a bit lacking, though there is this one one-long-shot action sequence that I really like (and its not a chase scene). And the final-third especially the finale, maybe can be better.

It is not a great sci-fi action film, but still an entertaining one. One I would recommend to you guys.

Doctor Sleep

Danny, after the event of The Shining, and managed to lock-up the demons that been haunting him, living life with drinking and moving from place to place and finally ended up in a small town where he makes new friends, having two jobs, and sober. Things changed when a girl with a powerful "shine" contacted him (not literally of course), and then both team-up to hunt Rose the Hat and her accomplices who have been kidnapping and murdering kids for years (or maybe decades).

Please mind my description above. To be honest, I am struggling to describe the plot as simple as possible. I'm not suggesting that the actual plot is far more complicated though. The film is a sequel to The Shining, so there are loads of its subplots and sequences and elements are from the first film. However, if you haven't watch The Shining yet, I can assure you that you won't get yourself confused or lost watching this.

A good horror film, with nice scary scenes and a bit of gores, nice performances from the lead actors, and kind of nice finale and ending. I haven't read the book, so I am not sure if it stays true to the original Stephen King's novel. But still I would recommend this to those Stephen King fans.

I Watched "Yesterday" Saturday night and what a good film.

If you the the Beatles then you will enjoy it.

Well worth a watch, I usually like my action/syfy movies but this was a refreshing change.

The Old Guard, starring Charlize Theron. Read a few reviews before watching it. Lots are praising the story and the concept as well as lauding the action sequences. I just couldn't agree with any of that.

{Ed001's Note - is it no good then? I don't really know much about it to be honest.}

Its Netflix film, Ed01. For me, it isn't that good.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't really appeal to me I have to say. I had a look at the blurb and it sounds a bit boring to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought it was OK for a netflix movie, I did also enjoy Extraction.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2020 23:03:19
Not for me northern, but I'm with you on Extraction. It's good.

Looking forward for Project Power next. Will be released soon, right?
