Solar Impact 123movies (2020)
Release: November 15, 2019
123movies Solar Impact
Just as seen in The Kite Runner, a tragedy has to occur before responsibility is accepted.
I would not have given this film a glance were it not for the fact that Cynda Williams got star billing. It is definitely for those who are fans only.
In what is probably a common occurrence, she becomes pregnant and her boyfriend/lover/partner Mushond Lee (2001 Maniacs) is reluctant to accept full responsibility and marry her.
He spends his time with his group of four friends, while she is with her group. Some may feel that Cynda's friends are part of the problem, as they are telling her to force the issue, but the male group is just as bad. They may be questioning when he is going to marry, but their behavior suggests that conquests of women is the sole goal in life.
Sure, things may end up in the right way, but not before the issue is forced with a huge tragedy. It was if fate seemed to push one into a right decision.
The one thing that spoiled what was a fair look at the sexes, was the presence of the typical black stereotypical drunk that just went on for too too long.

Mortal 123movies (2020)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release: February 28, 2020
"Feline Follies" is a 1919 4-minute black-and-white cartoon about Felix the cat. American director Otto Messmes made this one almost 100 years ago and he went one to become one of the defining animation filmmakers in the 1920s before the real boom of cartoons started a decade later. He is probably not a name to many anymore today, but the Animation Oscars Annie Awards honored him with their most precious award.
The animation in this cartoon here is still really basic, that's why I cannot really recommend it, but the jokes are all fine and were reused in much more known films in decades afterward, such as the cat that is blamed for the chaos the mice made, or the mice having a party when the cat isn't home or people in the neighborhood complaining about cat noise. A solid watch all in all I guess, but really only for people who like old films.

Resistance 123movies (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, War
Release: March 27, 2020
Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, and Julianne Moore star in this action movie: a battle of hit men. Stallone has had so many bad roles before, but this is one of the better roles I've seen him in. He would follow it five years later with a similar role in Get Carter. However, a real hit-man would not have hesitated to waste a woman. Antonio Banderas seemed out of character as an assassin. He was way over the top with emotional outbursts and impatience. These seem highly uncharacteristic of a successful assassin on his way up. Julianne Moore's character changed from a calm, cool bad girl into a helpless, bumbling female after meeting Stallone. How convenient! Many Of Richard Donner's other films have similar problems. However, there is enough enjoyable action, development and tension to enjoy the movie, as long as you suspend a lot of belief ...a lot of belief. *** of 4 stars.

Peninsula 123movies (2020)
Genre: Action, Horror, Thriller
Release: August 7, 2020
I absolutely love this refreshing new show which is unlike anything I have watched before which is why it holds my attention. The casting is excellent and the actors provide a seamless and effortless ability in personifying their respective roles. There is just enough action to maintain my attention, the attraction between two of the main characters that has you rooting for them to "just do "it" already!" and the very anti-social brother who provides a wonderful performance in every episode.
Overall, this show is great to watch for many different types of personalities and I would give my recommendation for anyone who hasn't yet seen it to check it out.

Marriage Story 123movies (2019)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Release: December 6, 2019
123movies Marriage Story
It's hard to examine the Nazi movement without seeming sensationalistic and lurid. "Architecture of Doom" achieves the difficult task of illustrating its thesis without sensationalizing it.
I have seen and read many histories of the Nazi period, and because of the aesthetic impact implicit in Nazism, the overarching impression I had wasn't the monstrous brutality and inhumanity, but the the uniforms, the rallies, the Wagner. After this film, I was left with a new way of looking and thinking about the Nazis.
That the narration is not to some tastes is, to me, a quibble. Actually, I like Sam Gray's narration. The phrasing is novel and very effective. In fact, the "inflectionless" style lends a kind of boldface to the words.
This is powerful stuff. There are debatable points, but the general thesis - that Nazism is murder in pursuit of an aesthetic - is mighty compelling.

Greyhound 123movies (2020)
Genre: Action, Drama, History, War
Release: July 10, 2020
ased upon the novel "The Good Shepherd" by C S Forester, this is the thrilling story of the leader of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as he faces relentless attack by a Nazi submarine wolf pack. The leader of the convoy's destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first Atlantic crossing. The story focuses on the his command responsibility as he fights the cold, the relentless night, the brutal sea and his deep fatigue as he chases down the attacking submarines in the deadly game of cat and mouse. The exciting story, a thrilling ride-along with the beleaguered captain, so deeply portrays the elements of battle command that for a long period of time the book was used as a text at the US Naval Academy.

The Old Guard 123movies (2020)
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Release: July 10, 2020
123movies The Old Guard
The young and the old, both in transition, makes up the story of "Atelier" a 2015 miniseries from Japan.
Adorable Mirei Kiritani stars as Mayuko, a young woman who comes to work at the Emotion salon in the Ginza section of Tokyo. Her boss Mayumi (Mao Daichi), made up to look like Anna Wintour, is tough but fair. The lingerie is hand-made and exquisite, and Mayuko falls in love with the whole industry, to the point where she wants to create something herself.
Mayuko and Mayumi learn more from one another than either one thought possible, as Mayuko works to find out who she is and Mayumi realizes she needs to invent herself.
Lots goes on in these 13 episodes: designs stolen, a theme for a fashion show stolen, a child who is estranged from his mother who appears, going into mass marketing, and lots else.
I have never been to Tokyo - it looks so beautiful on this show - it's like watching Manhattan, where I have lived, on Suits or White Collar. At the end someone is out on the sidewalk and you can really see that the streets are crowded like New York in midtown.
Learning a little of the culture was amazing also - lots of bowing, not a huge amount of touching, people seem to treat one another with respect. It's a more formal culture.
Someone on this board said the show reminded them of anime because some of the younger women had plastic surgery. I was wondering during 13 episodes why some of the women seemed to be a mix of American and Japanese.
Mirei Kiritani is so pretty and played the part of a naive girl who wants to learn everything very well. Mao Daichi, who seems like Japan's answer to Joan Collins, is perfect in her role of an elegant, somewhat imperious woman who hides her vulnerability underneath. She wears an Anna Wintour wig -- I'm not sure if I saw her in something else if I would know her. I believe at one point the character is said to be 50, or maybe I misheard - Daichi is 60, and I could have believed she was late forties.
The other actors were all wonderful, including Mayuko Kawakita, Ken Kaito, and Wakana Sakai.
Highly recommended - and for those concerned about language and nudity - this is cleaner than a Disney film.

123movies First Cow
Speaking for the younger generation, I've never seen anything like it. This movie hit theaters 6 years before I was born and I only just saw it now in Nov. 2004. and I was so moved that I had to comment. Visually it was psychedelic, and the editing matches the music masterfully.
The music rocks! Carl Anderson is beyond amazing as Judas, and ALL of the performances are really magnetic. I love singing along with Annas, Jesus, and Kiafass. I mostly listen to KoRn and Rap, so I never expected to remember (rock opera) lyrics and run around performing them. The feeling I got when 1st "experiencing" the movie was trippy. Similar to a live concert. The movie is outstanding and in my opinion will last for generations and generations. It speaks to a part of my soul and spirit.It says "right on" "rock on"

Hamilton 123movies (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Musical
Release: July 03, 2020
Let me start off by saying that this is not a rip off of GAME OF THRONES or LORD OF THE RINGS as some people have stated as they are obviously unaware that story of BEOWULF was created centuries ago so you could say the others are rip offs. But really they're not as they're just in the same vain as all sword and sorcery fantasy stories are, so you cant really rip off a genre.
BEOWULF stands on its own as a thoroughly entertaining young adult show and after a great opening sequence and a solid story the whole first episode has left me wanting more. The actual story of BEOWULF is obviously going to slowly unfold as time goes on and that's OK with me as they are going to thrown in additional stories to keep the series going. The overall package itself was great and that includes, the solid structure of the story, the acting, the sets, the monsters and the soundtrack. There's nothing bad at all about this before the water shed program and I eagerly await the second episode as there's always room for a little bit of slashing swords and monsters on TV.

The Outpost 123movies (2020)
Genre: Drama, History, War
Release: July 03, 2020
123movies The Outpost
I'm not going to intentionally spoil anything but I'm writing freely so it seems prudent to warn spoilers may follow.
Colony is a story about a family with a father who gets zero respect from his wife and children. It claims to be science fiction but is really just a dystopian society behind a big wall.
Will Bowman shares inside information with his wife as though discussing the details of operations should be normal conversation while eating breakfast. He does exceptional detective work and figures out there is a leak in his department very early in the series but he can't come to the conclusion he is the leak until it beats him over the head...multiple times.
If you loved hating Lori Grimes, then you're going to really love hating Katie Bowman. Sarah Wayne Callies may be portraying the most ignorant character in the history of television. It isn't really her fault as she seems to play the role she is being asked to do by the production staff on Colony.
The Bowman family puts a new spin on dysfunctional family. Katie Bowman is deceptive and completely unhinged in all the wrong ways imaginable. When Will finally confronted her, she doubled down on her deceit and obviously stupid decision making by lying more and accusing him of being equally deceptive. (He isn't and it is clear for all to see).
Apparently the writers want the viewer to believe her actions have all been based on Will's attempt to find their missing son without telling her his plan. If that situation were more developed, it is possible it would seem like he should have been more forward with her at the time. Just don't expect an intelligent viewer to accept everything she does following that to be even remotely reasonable.
The supporting characters are all flawed in significant ways except for the role portrayed by Amanda Righetti. Katie's sister seems to be the only intelligent player who manages to have sufficient instincts to actually still be alive.
The creative team behind Colony must have been shocked it was picked up to series as the story stumbled around for nine episodes with almost no advancement in the main plot. Which may be inaccurate to say because I'm not sure I can identify a main plot.
Is it to rescue the Bowman's missing son? Are they supposed to overcome an invading alien army we've never seen? It might just be a contrived story to create two sides of a conflict so they can work against each other.
It has been established that there are collaborators and a resistance. It is established that the collaborators will squash any resistance with force. I'm not sure it should take ten episodes to reach this place in any story. The pieces have been shuffled around the board a little but nothing of significance has changed or been revealed.
Is there supposed to be a mystery to who or what the aliens are in this story? There is never any doubt or foreshadowing concerning the identity of the main antagonist. The only exposure to the main antagonist has been one dead diplomat in an impossible to remove metal iron man like getup and an apparent factory on the moon.
The purpose of the factory isn't revealed in any way and there is no mysterious activity that would cause suspicion about what it may be producing. In ten episodes, there is one brief scene of the factory. A worker apparently becomes ill and is eliminated by staff at the facility.
Wait! I Know what the main theme is of Colony. It is an alien race is slowly converting humans into a race that will worship them when they fulfill the prophecy of Jesus only not in the way we've always expected it to happen.
At least I guess that is the main plot. It was in two or three scenes spread out over ten episodes. It would be easier to determine if the Bowman family hasn't has as many or more scenes where one of them went out to pick oranges off a tree.

Luce 123movies (2019)
Release: August 2, 2019
This film based on a play by Asian American writer, J.C. Lee explores the notion of what is true? Luce, the main character played cleverly by Kev lin Harrison, it'sworthy of recognition and praise and supported by the established talents of Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts. Washington's superb but uncanny cinematic presence, can get underneath one's skin.
Luce, an immigrant high schooler who's an accomplished academic student that serves as a role model not just to an immigrant but to African-American males as implied by the film's narrative. This film has brought forth controversy and stereotypes about the myth of being a perfect immigrant searching the American Dream.
This film is directed by Nigeria-born filmmaker, Julius Onah (known for Sci-fi genre). The film really tries to think outside of the box, which probably "why" many reviews don't know how to react. It about racism? Between polarization of White and Black America? Or is it the stress of being a teenager in Middle America? Or could this be "really" about what mainstream media wants the masses to think in the idea of model citizenship?

I watched the series Nigella Bites to see what the big appeal of Nigella Lawson was, and I obviously see it now, and so I suppose I had to try this short series focusing on Christmas food. Just like before, she shows us how to make "quick and easy" meals and snacks, ready for the Christmas celebrations. Also like before, Nigella does a lot of sexy stuff with eyes and fingers, says a couple of innuendo lines, and still looks gorgeous, and she knows what she's doing. As for the food she is making, some of it does sound quite appetising, I'll admit this wasn't as fun to watch as her previous show, but it was worth a look. Good!

Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
Release: June 12, 2020
123movies Artemis Fowl
While not exactly a brilliant masterpiece, this movie is solid, steady entertainment. The basic elements of a Robin Hood setting are there, but with a "daughter of Robin Hood" -approach to give a little variation to the theme.
Even though it's a "new" plot, they've kept a lot of familiar Robin Hood -themes in the film, including an archery contest and the same old villains - what would a Robin Hood -story be without Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, after all? And just like her father, Gwyn steals from the rich and gives to the poor, and desires justice and fairness to the people. All the classical elements are there, but with a little "girl power" in the mix.
There's also a rather nice father-daughter dynamic going on, with Robin trying to shelter his daughter from the dangerous life he lives. Gwyn, on the other hand, won't have any of that nonsense, and is more than willing to prove that she's "just as good as a son". The movie doesn't really explore medieval gender roles all that deeply, though - Gwyn dressing as a man is made slightly fun of, but there's no shock nor any disapproval of what might have even be considered sinful back then. The clothes may be medieval, but the attitudes are rather modern, and in that sense this is a rather typical adventure film, that doesn't let historical accuracy get in the way of a good story.
Keira Knightley does a delightfully energetic performance as the tomboyish and almost recklessly fearless Gwyn, and adds a lot to the freshness of the film. If you intend to watch this film because you're a fan of Keira Knightley, I doubt you'll be disappointed. The actors in general are giving solid, although maybe not the most memorable performances.
If you're looking for an entertaining, sort of harmless "feelgood" adventure movie, and are a fan of medieval type of settings, this is the movie for you.

Release: November 21, 2019
123movies The Blackout
Bizarre film about a repellent creep who meets a bum on the street who teaches him "morphosynthesis", the ability to transform yourself into whoever you so desire. This psychotic louse uses the identity of a pretty missing girl whose picture was on the back of a milk carton, assuming the role of a female teenage student. He was already unstable to begin with(we are introduced to him as he's ogling at a girl walking down a sidewalk)due to his abuse at the hands of his mother, and so the eventual misogyny(and sadism) which erupts as he remains in the disguise of Josephine(Ann Flood), attacking a girl pack he befriends while attending high school, one at a time, at night when they are not expecting Joe(Carl Zschering), is due to his childhood trauma(as is his cannibalism which derives from feeding from his dead mother's remains while living at home by himself, which explains his devouring flesh from the female victims).
THE NOSTRIL PICKER resembles something Troma might distribute/produce, because it's crude, badly dubbed, poorly acted(it sounds like the actors are having trouble with their lines), in bad taste, with a dimestore budget that features schlocky special effects(particularly fingers lopped off a hand and how Joe stabs a victim multiple times, up and down, only after about number fifteen does any blood appear on the blade which means it's obvious he's bludgeoning a pillow). The plot, however, is rather unsettling and disturbing, the idea that out of all the people to have the ability to camouflage himself with another identity, it had to be Zschering's Joe Bukowski, an unhinged recently released mental patient who hates women and has cannibalistic tendencies. The film wants to actually be a comedy and even has a musical interlude where Joe is shown in school and the girls' restroom, having integrated himself into the new role, enjoying the new found freedom and power provided him. Actually, the violence comes out of nowhere, shifting the tone somewhat, only to return to comedy when Joe attempts to sodomize a transvestite he picks up(in the form of the teenage girl)outside his junky apartment. Zschering is effectively cast because he fits the profile of a neighborhood stalker who you could envision as a pedophile predator, dangerous with a knife, particularly lethal with a supernatural ability to fool victims into thinking he's a chick. The title refers to how Joe picks his nose all the time. Joe not only lacerates the jugulars of his female victims and eats pieces of their flesh, he also rapes them with the knife he uses as a weapon! Sickening enough(story-wise) to become a cult classic.

123movies The Invisible Man
THE SWISS CONSPIRACY was advertised as "the ultimate blackmail thriller", and while it's too far from reaching top-notch status, it is a stylish piece of 70s intrigue from across the Atlantic. A B-movie running on overdrive is what you may hardly ever believe, but there is some attention worth grabbing on the action parts that flow at a solid pace, and can provide a few nifty surprises. Just try not to expect plenty of spectacular stunts from a flick like this, although the exotic sports cars are worth a look. If there are certain B-movie stars you can recognize, look for John Saxon in a convincing, but unfortunately brief role of a crook, plus international film starlets Senta Berger and Elke Sommer. And don't forget our major eye David Janssen, who's trying to get things straight with lovely Berger on his wing. A pretty good minor crime classic that delivers a slightly different beat of an ending.

123movies Brahms: The Boy II
I suppose I was part of the target audience for "Unidentified Flying Oddball" since I graduated high school in 1979; and it's not a children's movie, then or today. Unlike "Mary Poppins" or other Disney classics of that ilk, the movie contains no children. And since it moves kind of slowly it probably won't interest kids today . . . after all, the "Oddball" (Dennis Dugan) proudly listens to "l-ps" and takes pictures with . . . a camera! For kids today it might as well be a silent picture. And it has a scantily-clad woman on the cover of a girlie mag cleverly called "Playtime" with lettering similar to a similarly titled mag. I missed this movie the year it came out, but catching it for the first time nearly 40 years later I can report . . . it's not as bad as I feared. Star Dennis Dugan was just coming off his own tv show, "Richie Brockelman, Private Eye" (though he probably is more famous today for playing the same character on "The Rockford Files"). He's just as winsome as he was on television. But he does play a nerdish character who wears big bow ties and loud sports jackets and smiles a lot. This was before Bill Murry and his ilk made jerks heroes. Dugan tries to be more a throwback to the days of Bob Hope and Danny Kaye, and I think Disney was trying for an ambiance like Kaye's "Court Jester." Disney was pretty much in the dumps at this time. But the Disney name was still able to attract big stars, and "Unidentified Flying Oddball" does not stint on the actors. The story is based (extraordinary loosely) on the Mark Twain novel A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (so loosely, in fact, I don't know why they bothered with the attribution). King Arthur is played by a truly great actor, Kenneth More, in his big-screen swan song. Arthur's sidekick Gawain is John le Mesurier, a prolific actor whose comic expressions provide some of the movie's few giggles. Also giggle-worthy is Ron Moody (Fagin in "Oliver!") who tries to steal the picture with his expressions, voice modulations, and ridiculous haircut. For fans, the movie is worth watching once just to see Moody's performance. Mordred, the villain of the piece, is played by erstwhile "Carry On" performer Jim Dale (what, was Roddy McDowell unavailable?). While cunning actors More, Mesurier and Moody seem to realize the sort of flick they're in, Dale comes on with a fire-and-brimstone performance like he's in another movie entirely. Oh, and just as, in 1963, Disney cast in "Doctor Syn" one George Cole, legendary in England and unknown stateside, here legendary Brit Rodney Bewes plays the lowly (but helpful) Clarence. It's always good to see Bewes get work. I'm not up on the, science but I assume it's rubbish. I have (since graduating high school that year) studied medieval history extensively and I can say for certain the history is rubbish. Let's forget the nonexistence of King Arthur and accept him as given. The castle is six hundred years out of date, the jousting shown here even more so. The armor, weapons and the rest of it are as much out of place in the 500s AD as Clarence's "thees" and "thous." But why nitpick? It's just a silly romantic comedy and no worse, if perhaps more simple-minded, than some of the movies I took dates to in the late 1970s. Silly fun, and I mean . . . really silly. I mean . . . really, really, really silly. Don't go into this movie with any hopes you're going to see a rival to "Star Wars." I went in with low expectations and a bad head cold (with medication) and that helped a lot.

Release: March 04, 2020
This is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the most ridiculous (yet ridiculously-entertaining) B-movies ever lensed. SEE- the female star blow-dry her hair after removing her shower cap! SEE- the female star lock her mom's boyfriend INSIDE her bedroom! SEE- her vomit on every single item of furniture in a room, including its small dorm-size refrigerator! SEE- two curly-haired guys beat the crap out of a third curly-haired guy! SEE- a dope-sick junkie suck on a prison sink faucet! SEE- a container of heroin removed from a smugglerette's hairy European rectum (no CGI here, unfortunately)! HEAR- priceless lines such as "She's under the bridge-up to her eyes in dope and syphilis-good luck!" I wish every 90 minutes of my life were this much fun.
