123movies 47 Meters Down: Uncaged
What a nice series - again Sean Bean is a great series actor - even better than Malcovich!!! This has nothing to do with "realism" of Frankenstein story - hello: people were never able to create people from dead ones by just sewing together - please lets have a look at the time: London 1827 and how well they showed how people lived the poverty, the places. That's exactly what makes this series so wonderful. Adding the foggy atmosphere and how few live of poor people and especially children (think of child labor) were worthy that days, makes it a portrait of how we imagine that time. Thanks for this series.

123movies Good Boys
Chang Dong Lee. He only directed three films so far but I have no hesitation to say his works are the masterpiece of Korean films. Oasis is my top choice of his works.
There are already excellent comments on this film you could read through. I just want to add one thing. It was the most touching and romantic moment that Jong Du escaped from the police station to trim the tree branches which made a shadow that Gong Ju was afraid of. It shows us LOVE is not something fantastic or metaphysical but how you care the others. Great film! I am eagerly looking forward to seeing his next film that will be release soon, Mil Yang (secret sunshine).

123movies The Secret Life of Pets 2
Tom Berenger is back! on a new secret mission to snipe a Serbian general who is responsible for ethnical cleaning towards Muslim people.
Very Mild Story Spoiler:
Tom Berenger who is out of the army gets a visit of CIA officer and a millitary captain, to discuss about a "suicide" mission. Tom easily admits YEAH! " if i want to die, i want to die as a soldier" looool :-), he wants his former military rank back "in return" Tom requests for a backup "Bokeem Woodbine aka Cole" comes and joins Berengers one man platoon. After that they will be dropped within enemy lines. And the rest will is for your eyes only!
I feel sniper 2 is worthy sequel, ok we don't have Billy Zane anymore but Bokeem Woodbine "Cole" performed pretty well.
If you can't enjoy a movie like Sniper 2 you can't shutdown your brain, and you shouldn't watch a movie like this in the first place for "the criticism".
Call me a cheater but Berenger deserve some respect as B actor, therefore i rate it: 7/10 Hopefully we will see him back in Sniper 3 "that would be something" :)
All and All.... Cool Berenger Movie!

*I give it 6.5/10*
*This is LONG. I have a lot of thoughts*
To start off, I'm not much of a fan of musicals - other than a select few that I've loved since childhood. And I'm also not a fan of the fantasy genre. But I wanted to watch this and form my own opinion of it because I am a massive fan of Bohemian Rhapsody, and Rocketman has been compared to death to it, so I wanted to give it a fair chance and see what all the fuss was about. I'm going to review it in sections to make reading it a bit easier. It's very long, especially where I compare it to Bohemian. (Although I adore Bohemian, I do wish that some things were done differently, but it doesn't keep me awake at night like it clearly does for some people.)
TARON: His acting was great! I found that it was even better in the second half when the storyline turned darker & more dramatic. I don't really know much about Elton John and haven't seen much archival footage of him, but from reviews, it sounds like Taron had Elton's mannerisms down and really inhabited his character. Also, I gotta say...Taron's voice is beautiful. It has an interesting quirkiness to it at times but he can also belt out when necessary.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: Considering this movie is based around Elton's issues with addiction and self-hate, I felt like we didn't get to see an in depth build up of his inner turmoil. It kind of seemed rushed, like certain people treated him poorly and he was frustrated/hurt and then suddenly he was an addict. I wasn't emotionally invested in that aspect of the story, which is its core focal point. As for other characters, some were very underdeveloped and their impact on Elton didn't have much of an impact on me.
SCRIPT: There were some cringy moments where I found the writing was blatantly weak/awkward.
EDITING/FLOW: It made the story feel disjointed at times. Sometimes I felt like the transitions from regular scenes to musical scenes (and vice versa) were clever and flowed well, and sometimes they didn't and felt messy. This is also where some of the fantasy moments just didn't work for me.
COMPARISONS TO BOHEMIAN & RAMI: 1) One thing I think is super unfair is how people are using praising Taron for doing his own singing as an opportunity to throw shade at Rami for not singing in Bohemian. First of all, Rami actually did sing. He took singing lessons and "sang at the top of his lungs every day" (a direct quote from him). For the people who didn't pay attention, you could see his neck and throat muscles flexing during the performance scenes. And then in the editing room they blended Freddie's voice into his with the result being mostly Freddie that came through. Second, no one can replicate Freddie Mercury's unique four-octave range, which is probably the best voice in all of rock history. Rami simply didn't have a good enough voice to pull off a convincing performance of a rock legend, whereas Taron already had the gift of a great voice BEFORE Rocketman. It's not as if he learned to sing for this movie. That was an advantage Taron had when getting this role, but it doesn't mean that Rami has now become less worthy of winning his Oscar. I've seen a lot of user & critic reviews saying "if Rami could win an Oscar for lip-syncing then Taron is more deserving because he actually sang". An actor's performance in a music movie is about more than just the voice. Both Rami and Taron's roles were about immersing themselves fully into the person they were portraying through mannerisms, body language, overall essence, etc. Think of it this way, if Taron sang but he didn't deliver a convincing performance in the acting department, the singing aspect wouldn't have mattered.. so the reverse can also be true and was the case for Rami...his actual voice wasn't audible to us on screen but his acting was great and he delivered a convincing performance in other ways.
2) People have slammed Bohemian for having inaccuracies in timelines and facts... well Rocketman does too. Both movies took creative license in order to compress 20+ years into 2 hours. I don't get why people couldn't handle that when it came to Bohemian but can seem to overlook that for Rocketman. These movies aren't documentaries, they are products of Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
3) Considering things I read in reviews about the "level of gayness", and its R-rating, I expected to see some pretty graphic stuff. But that just wasn't the case. I live in Canada and we have a less strict rating system here. It's been rated 14A, which is basically a step above PG-13 for Americans. There are a few scenes that had some passionate but short-lived making out, a sex scene that cut away before showing any actual sex, an oral sex scene that didn't show anything, a gay orgy musical scene, and flamboyant outfits. And Bohemian had a few make outs, a post-"one night stand" scene, a gay club scene, a drag scene, and flamboyant outfits. The biggest difference to me is that Rocketman is intentionally very flashy, which is already a major component of the musical genre. And it's a gay musical... Of course there will be excess! And there was, but just not as much as I expected. Freddie's risqué lifestyle wasn't front and centre of Bohemian, but it was purposely made that way. Both these movies had different approaches & intentions. Bohemian focused more on Freddie as a musician, who struggled with personal issues on the side, while Rocketman focused on the inner demons that followed young Elton from childhood, right through to his journey as a musician.
The fact that Elton is alive and was involved in the movie making process was an advantage for Rocketman, but Bohemian didn't have that luxury with Freddie. I think the writers of Bohemian felt a duty to Freddie to not get caught up with the exposing of his darker side (sex/drugs) but to instead preserve his legacy. He was harassed by the press for his entire career over his flamboyancy and sexuality, and he died at a time when being gay still wasn't accepted, so I think that respect factor was taken into consideration when the movie was made in terms of the level of personal life "disclosure" they felt was appropriate. Also, making the movie suitable for such a wide audience was a wise decision. It not only helped them rake in almost 1 billion $ but also helped get Queen's music out to every generation simultaneously. The R-rating on Rocketman is going to limit who will see it and how much money is made.
4) Something I liked a lot more about Bohemian was the concert scenes. They felt more epic to me, like you were actually there in the audience or on stage with them. The concert scenes in Rocketman were really good but the fantasy sections came in too early for me. The scene where he sings Rocketman in the massive stadium was exhilarating and the kind of thing I wanted more of, and then he suddenly blasts up into the sky like a rocket and it really killed that entire scene for me. It just made me want to laugh.
MUSICAL ASPECT: As I said I'm not really a fan of musicals nor fantasy, and being a fan of Bohemian and it's traditional biopic storytelling, I really wish Rocketman wasn't a musical. I would've liked to have seen Elton's story presented in a typical biopic way.
CRITIC REVIEWS: Something tells me that the critics had an attitude of "anything will be better than Bohemian Rhapsody", so they jumped right in to praise Rocketman, and decided to ignore any flaws it has.
MARKETING: I'm not quite sure why they didn't advertise this as a full musical, but my guess is they wanted to be vague in the trailers (kind of like Bohemian's trailers) in order to create enough buzz so that they could then ride on the coattails of Bohemian's financial success and the audience hunger it created for future music biopics. Not everyone likes musicals, so I think they wanted to keep the genre somewhat "under wraps".
OSCAR POTENTIAL: I think Taron is totally deserving of an Oscar nomination, and the movie should also get nominations for costume design, cinematography, and the sound categories. Whether that happens or not and whether there are wins or not is unpredictable at this point because we're only halfway through the year and there will be a bunch more movies coming out in the next 6 months that could kick it out as a contender. Also, because it's a summer movie and not an "awards season" movie, the hype surrounding it may fizzle out by December/January.
One scene I really loved was when Taron sang Tiny Dancer. His high notes were breathtaking! And the performance where he's dressed up in the huge puffy dress and white makeup was hilarious. There were definitely some fun, humourous scenes throughout the movie that I enjoyed.
Sadly though, I felt like Rocketman didn't inspire any interest in Elton John in me. The mixture of dark and light moments, and the bipolar feel to the movie didn't help me feel uplifted or like I'd just watched a true celebration of a great artist. But I felt that way after I watched Bohemian and immediately dove headfirst into a Queen/Freddie Mercury addiction.
If you're an Elton John fan, a fan of musicals, or part of the LGBTQ community, chances are you will love this movie.
Although it's not my style, I can appreciate the creativity that went into telling this story, but I do think it belonged more on Broadway.
I'm expecting tons of thumbs down on my review, but that's fine. I read hundreds of reviews that tore Bohemian to shreds, and while I didn't agree with them, we are all entitled to our own opinions. People need to learn to understand and accept this fact. Not everyone has to like or gravitate toward the same kinds of movies. Lastly, NEITHER movie is conclusively "better" than the other. Yes, they are both music biopics, but they are in vastly different genres (drama vs. musical fantasy) & use different styles of storytelling. It all comes down to personal preference and what speaks to/resonates with each individual person.

123movies Godzilla II: King of the Monsters
Gareth Hale and Norman Pace are one of the most consistently entertaining comedy duos to emerge from the UK. They're irreverent brand of school-yard humour was always well scripted, staged and executed and the two appeared to have a genuine mutual rapport, and thus supported one another with the razor-sharp precision required for sketch comedy. In particular, Hale's expressive, walrus-like features make him an instant comedy attraction, the perfect vice to Pace's straight guy routine. Impressively, they could also reverse the roles and still produce genuine laughs.
Some of my personal highlights are Gareth Hale's jaunt to Spain, where he becomes totally inebriated, insults his host country and is forcibly removed from a Tapas bar ("and let's not forget, the generous Spanish hospitality"), Billy & Johnny and their adult-themed children's show ("one two drip on my shoe, three four not anymore") and one of the many music satires concerning the perils of wearing red hair ("oh yes it's utterly, utterly rotten to be ginger"). Really, there were so many highlights, every episode contained a memorable moment.
In later seasons, looking noticeably older and more portly, the pair relied on recurring characters (the cab driver's with the cockney dialect) that became more the subject than the vehicle to project the humour. Some of these worked (the well-hard boys for instance chanting "always drink from a broken glass and crack walnuts between the cheeks of me Arsenal, Arsenal, come on you gunners Arsenal"), although the formula seemed to be missing more often. But the best of Hale & Pace from seasons 2-4 and the ubiquitous 'Christmas Specials', offer hours of side-splitting humour that rank among the best of British comedy. If you're accustomed to that type of sketch comedy, then you should relish Hale & Pace.

There's an odd critic backlash against "Wicked City" because of "violence against women". Uhh... it's a show about a detective pursuing a serial killer similar to Hillside Strangler, who targeted women. It is fiction, centered around certain subject matter which alludes to, unfortunately, some real history. And when it comes to actual graphic scenes, they're tame compared to a show like "CSI" or "Bones", never even mind "Dexter". Or "Zodiac". Or "SE7EN".
So what's next, are we gonna hear that "12 Years A Slave" is racist because it shows abuse of African-Americans? Clearly, they've been singled out by that movie! Is that how low the bar has fallen, that we now want to keep storytelling on a politically-correct leash, to strip it of any edge or rawness, dare it not offend anyone? I hope not, because that will be the end.
Compared to your generic procedurals like CSI: CITY or NCIS: CITY, or Hawaii Five-O, this show's pilot was refreshing, it moved along at a brisk pace, and made me actually interested in what happens next.
Compared to throwaway skin-show-for-kids like "Quantico" this show should be a breakaway hit. At least, in a world where critics have taste.

123movies Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans
This is a good comedy with a good performance by Harold Lloyd in the role of "The Freshman". The entertaining slapstick and amusing story tend to obscure how good a job Lloyd did with his character - to make the story work, Lloyd's character has to be a complete buffoon, utterly oblivious to what is going on around him, yet at the same time he has to be sympathetic to the audience. Lloyd makes this work, and combines it with plenty of good gags to make for a silent comedy classic.
The story is simple, but entertaining, following Harold as he learns about life on the campus of Tate University ("a large football stadium with a college attached"). Old campus comedies are often interesting because they show that, for all the things that have changed, some of the basic personalities on a college campus are still the same as they ever were. Here we have the hard-headed football coach, the mean-spirited hazers, the prissy dean, the wide-eyed freshmen, and more. Most of the characters remain one-dimensional, but they don't need to be anything more in order for it to work. Lloyd does a good job of blending his character into the campus atmosphere, and along with help from leading lady Jobyna Ralston, he makes you care about his silly character while providing plenty of laughs in the process.

123movies John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
Following on from two deliriously entertaining, visually gorgeous and blissfully simplistic thrillers, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum keeps up the franchise's unique appeal in stunning fashion. Complete with electrifying action, beautiful cinematography, a pulsating score and a great sense of humour, the film is pretty much as purely joyful as action thrillers get, and proves two hours of brilliant entertainment.
Before I get into all of that, though, one of the greatest things about this franchise is just how simplistic it is. You may have seen John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2, you may not have done. Going into this third film, however, it's all pretty irrelevant, and while the first two films are certainly worth your time, absolutely anybody can go and watch this movie without any prior knowledge, and simply sit back and watch the fireworks.
The plot is effectively laid out for you in the first ninety seconds of the movie. John Wick is excommunicated, and there's a $14m bounty on his head. That's it. Following that brief bit of exposition are two hours of beautifully simple yet endlessly entertaining action, and while the film does keep you engrossed with its sense of mystery and intrigue surrounding this world of allegiances and deception, it's the thrill of the chase that really matters.
In that, there's almost never a moment where storytelling takes precedence over action thrills, with the movie bursting into life by way of an exhilarating opening act. However, much like the first two films, not every moment is fighting and shootouts, with the mystery, the tension and the intrigue all playing a part as John Wick encounters numerous people from his past in all manner of different scenarios.
There are moments in its middle portion that do drag a little more than others, and where the story perhaps gets a little self-indulgent, however there's no denying just how slick and purely entertaining a thriller this is regardless.
Of course, the action itself is brilliant as well. The opening act is astonishing, filled to the brim with insane action that features seamless fight choreography, brilliant camerawork and a fantastic sense of self-awareness that allows you to laugh at the most ridiculous moments. From then on, the film continues to burst into life with mad, energetic and dazzling action sequences again and again, only furthering the sheer entertainment appeal of the whole affair.
Also, there's no getting away from just how good-looking a movie this is. The camerawork in the fight sequences is certainly excellent, but it's the film's kaleidoscopic colour pallette and slick cinematography that makes it a feast for the eyes, pulling off the style of a pure pulp thriller in brilliant fashion once again, and with a pulsating, intense score playing throughout to boot, you'll definitely be on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
All in all, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum isn't much different from the previous two movies. It isn't the world's most intricate or intelligent thriller. However, with brilliant energy, dazzling visuals, stunning action and an invaluable sense of fun, absolutely none of that matters, and it instead proves a solidly entertaining, manic and dizzyingly joyful thriller throughout.

123movies The Last Black Man in San Francisco
To be perfectly honest, I only watched the movie because of the title. Being from San Francisco myself I was more than a little intrigued. After watching it, It seems like the title was the only good thing about this movie-if you can consider the title good.
Obviously, the movie takes place in San Francisco. I don't want to attempt to say what it was about because I'm sure I'll be wrong. Rather, I'll say what I think it was about.
The two main characters were Jimmie Fails playing Jimmie Fails and Jonathan Majors playing Montgomery Allen. I recognized Jonathan Majors from a movie earlier this year titled Captive State. They were two odd friends. I say odd because I couldn't understand them. I didn't understand their actions, their emotions, their motivations, nothing. Jimmie was grim, deadpanned guy obsessed with an old Victorian home that he used to live in on Golden Gate. Even though it was occupied he would go there and touch up the paint and other chores. Montgomery (Mont) was an artist that just tagged along with Jimmie. Mont drew and he was perpetually working on a play. A play he'd eventually finish and make him an even weirder guy.
The two of them thought they had it made when the Victorian house was vacated. Now they could squat there and claim it as there own. That, or come up with the $4 million it would cost to buy it.
That's as much as I gathered from the movie as far as a plot. There were other side stories that gave more insight to these two main characters but the side stories also made the two main characters more enigmatic. The movie started slow and ended slower. I was patient with it because I can be patient with a movie and allow it to develop. What developed was nothing worth waiting for. Heck, one couple, maybe smarter than myself, left midway through. That exiting couple was a third of the audience.
Without being overly critical I'm just going to call it too artsy for me. This was one of those movies where just about everything had to be inferred and interpreted. Even the main conflict-if there was one-was nebulous. I don't need to be spoon fed but I don't feel like staring at abstract art either.
To me it was all too strange. Their friendship was strange, their daily routine was strange, it was strange how Mont just stared at the four regular locals as they hung out, it was strange to show some random old white guy plopping down at the bus stop fully nude, and Jimmie's obsession with his old house was strange. I mean, I have fondness for the place I grew up but that's where it stops. We live in a place, sometimes we lose that place or we just move on, then that place is just a memory. Maybe, if we had fond enough memories and the ability, we try to purchase that old home. That's as far as that fondness should ever go.
The only bright spots of the movie were the appearances of known actors. Mike Epps' brief spot was funny. Tichina Arnold and Danny Glover only provided a familiar face because they certainly didn't provide any credibility. To their defense, it was nothing they could do. This movie may have wowed some but I'd have to ask why.
I'll end with a quote from the movie that only summed up how odd it all was. There was a scene where Jimmie is riding the bus and these two women were discussing their disdain with San Francisco. They weren't conservatives at all by the looks of them, they just didn't like the city for whatever reason they mentioned. Upon hearing that, Jimmie Fails says, "You can't hate San Francisco."
One woman responds, "I can hate whatever the (expletive) I want to hate."
Jimmie asks, "Do you love it? Because you can only hate it if you love it."
What!?! That's it, I'm done.

A Dog's Journey 123movies (2019)
Release: May 3, 2019
123movies A Dog's Journey
I must admit, I was a little disappointed when I walked into the cinema - I had confused this film with A Dog's Way Home. However, when the end credits rolled, I was thoroughly pleased with my mistake. A Dog's Journey is a film that will unapologetically tug at your heart, and though cliched film tropes are consistently used, these are brilliantly effective.
The best part about the movie is definitely Dennis Quaid, as Ethan, whose charismatic charm inspires us to believe in the far fetched narrative. His dog, Bailey (voiced brilliantly by Josh Gad), is always blessed with new life after passing away. When Ethan and Hannah's (Marg Helgenberger) grand daughter, CJ, is taken away from them by their alcoholic daughter in law, Gloria (Betty Gilpin), Ethan asks Bailey to look after CJ in his next life. Loving his master so much, Bailey continuously keeps his promise, though it is convenient he always happens to appear at the right place, at the right time.
Quaid revels in his character, and though Helgenberger's, Hannah, is more serious (and doesn't get as much screen time as she deserves) their characters wonderfully contrast. Henry Lau, as Trent, CJ's best friend, is also a highlight of the movie - he is such a likable and caring friend, though much of his backstory (example, he often wears a suit and appears financially secure, yet we never learn what his job is) is never given to us.
CJ becomes the main character for much of the film, Kathryn Prescott developing a really sympathetic character - after all, everyone loves the underdog - though her gullibility can be somewhat unbelievable. At the same time, her ark, about longing to pursue a music career, and the uphill battle she faces, is probably the weakest and most undeveloped part of the film. So too are the peripheral characters she encounters, who are mere two dimensional cut-outs, typically treated as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, whereby they experience an extreme personality shift demanded by the script to force the story in a particular direction, that is neither warranted nor deserved.
Considering the film wants to touch your heart, it does throw almost every shockingly sad film trope at the screen, from family deaths, to sickness and near-death experiences, all of which have been overused before. Occasionally, after occurring, these are never touched upon again, which is not only a wasted opportunity, but illustrates that they were simply used for shock value. However, the film's portrayal of these moments, alongside the acting and the musical score, beautifully compliments them, assisting the movie in accomplishing its goal - safe to say, by the time the film was over, many people in the theatre with me were choking back tears.
Although Gad's portrayal of the dog is often comedic, it never gets in the way of the film's more serious moments, giving the movie a great sense of warmth, and comedically highlighting some of the film's themes. At times, the film is very light hearted and funny, and it might have been nice if more humour had been included.
Despite the criticisms that could be made, the film's touching moments make for a fantastic viewing experience. Besides, who doesn't like the always amazing Dennis Quaid? I would definitely recommend this to filmgoers who love dogs or coming of age movies; just don't forget to have a few tissues stuffed into your trousers before you do.

123movies Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
All That is a unique kids' show with many kinds of sketches (some that repeat) and a few distinct young preteens and teens. But as time goes by, there are only FOUR sketches... they should dump the music video (I'll get to that), and add more like Monty Python did. It doesn't have to be intelligent, just fun.
Music Videos... I don't care about Brandy or Spice Girls or TLC. All they are is some fabled singers to come up and try to finish off the show good. Well, I always flip to another channel. It's just for pre-teen rock stars and people girls dream to be like in the future.
Actors... A pretty colorful cast, but now begins to lag to mediocrity. Kenan and Kel are most likely the BEST cast members, and two of the surviving ones, they get all the good sketches are full of creativity and style. Lori Beth was wonderful as a cast member (cept for Loud Librarian), with Vital Information. But it lost a lot when Danny Tamberelli stepped in. Don't get me wrong, Tamberelli is a good actor, but he doesn't have the charm to replace Lori Beth in Vital Information. Josh Server is a good actor with some nice lines. Amanda Bynes is perfect for Ask Ashley, but sometimes she grates into my nerves for a while. The rest either suck or are cool.
Sketches... The best I saw are Good Burger, Vital Information, Ask Ashley, Whatevver, and anything with Kenan, Kel, or Josh.
Well I don't have anything to say anymore about this fine program. But it should be on for a while, may be after the 100th episode or so. Good Job, Nick. (elodeon)

123movies The Art of Racing in the Rain
The movie is truly poignant, unique and uplifting. The story is universal in that it's a battle between good, evil and the world between. THE MOST IMPORTANT thing is that its rating is wrong, misleading, and a travesty. Blockbuster has it rated as though it were an X rated movie. The truth is is that it is closer to G than PG and should be seen by children who can read the clear and simple sub-titles.
Director: Simon Curtis

123movies Dora and the Lost City of Gold
As usual, when I watch a film with psychopathic homicidal criminals who seem to have everything go their way despite taking ludicrous risks and being sloppy to the extreme, I sit there half angry trying to process it all.
The film is about a serial killer duo who apparently move from house to house, killing all the occupants, setting up residence for a week or two, then leaving to repeat the process again. Criminally speaking, this can go on successfully for a time and eventually they WILL get caught. They operate in a way in which they leave tonnes of evidence; fingerprints, witnesses, plus half a dozen dead bodies, people who had plans/appointments to come to the house and apparently NONE of them informing their loved ones or friends about where they were going, and thus, the police stay well out of the picture. This is what we know after having sat through half of the film, so at this point we realise 1. they arrive on scene ALREADY wanted by the police. 2. composite sketches should be being blasted all over the news. 3. chances are they should be identified by fingerprints and/or DNA (hair strands/blood). The fact that both killers, but the woman in particular are being so brazen during this film more or less gives them a 95% chance of being caught
All this being said, assuming they're the luckiest serial killers alive with an unnatural blessing to kill as many people as they want to (It's a weak poorly planned serial killer movie, so OF COURSE.), and assuming they are this lucky, let's examine the 5% window that this film lives in. One question people will always ask themselves is "how is it that no one in the neighbourhood took notice or showed suspicion." A valid question, though even more valid is the general lack of concern by people uninvolved. e.g. I once personally saw someone get kidnapped off the street and hauled into a moving van, and I didn't particularly care enough to call the police, as I was already late for my train, and I didn't see any of the other few people around reaching for their cell phones either, so this aspect of the film's integrity which other reviewers have brought up, is honestly not a worthy criticism.
Where I turn to now is the character's actions. The worst and most nonsensical aspect to me is the character driven premise... WHY does the male killer not simply kill the owner the second she walks into the room, finding her friend dead. He has absolutely no reason not to, has already killed 3 people in the house, so it makes no sense, as well as being really stagy how she backs into where he's hiding and then all fades to black and she SOMEHOW conveniently loses consciousness basically so the encounter/interaction between the two wont have to be dealt with and she can awaken later in chains. Not very smooth directing at all. That being said, the directing is VERY American school, as the film is riddled with 5 or so scenes where characters show up JUST at that pesky moment.
To top it off, an important criticism that many brought up was the dialogue and thus the motivation of the characters. Firstly, despite the owner stating that she believes the male killer is DIFFERENT than his female counterpart, he is clearly just as brutal as her, if not moreso, and there is no real worthy conflict between the 2 killers shown. He is really given NO motive, emotional, logistical, or otherwise to abandon his current companion for this new woman that he for no particular reason spared, and had no meaningful dialogue with, and thus no real basis for any emotional connection.
The ending however was more or less the final shitscoop on the turd Sunday we've been forced to swallow here; contrived, melodramatic, stagy, and the climax of an entirely unfounded plot premise for all the reasons I have listed above. Even though the acting is fairly competent, especially by the male antagonist, it really leaves you feeling nothing in the end, and honestly, I really cannot see the point in sacrificing any of your time on a film written/directed by someone who took no time to produce meaningful dialogue, and who clearly put no thought or planning into the nature of the criminal elements portrayed on screen.

123movies Blinded by the Light
Bruce Springsteen, for a generation, was a songwriter who didn't just write about the average man, but for him. Many song writers coming out of the 60's and 70's wrote socially conscious music and tried to say something about the world around them, but Bruce had another view of America and tried to channel that spirit into music. Is it any wonder then that some might be so inspired, it changed their outlook on life? Such was the case for Sarfraz Manzoor, who's story is the basis for this movie. Springsteen is the backbone to a story that we've heard before, but this delightful tale is so proud, charming, and full of heart, it's hard not to watch it with a smile.
It is 1987 and Javed is a Pakistani teenager living in a small English city where he spends his days writing, whether it's essays, poetry, or lyrics for his friend's band. Politically minded and socially aware, Javed longs to get away from his town, as well as his old fashioned father, but doesn't see much of a way out...until a friend from school introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen. Through the lyrics of The Boss' music, he finds meaning and inspiration, moving him to be bolder, more proud of his writing, and chase his dreams despite the hurdles in his path. Blinded by the Light is the kind of film that wears it's heart on it's sleeve. It has no problem being a little silly and even it's most serious subject matter never feels too heavy. This is a feel good movie through and through that uses it's more dramatic elements as a backdrop, not just for Javed's story, but the story a society facing a tough economy, with job losses and racism against immigrants. The film touches on numerous subjects, from tradition and family vs. going after one's dreams, to the economic woes that many faced during this time in England. It's all balanced well, if it lacks nuance. But it's hard to ignore the spirit of the film, a spirit that translates Javed, his friends, and their families from the lyrics of Springsteen's music, a perfect combination that shows that it wasn't just America that could relate to his music, but anyone facing these same hardships.
The film isn't just about Springsteen's music though. The bigger picture here is the relationship between music and it's audience. While Springsteen's music is played throughout the film, specific focus is placed on the lyrics, what he was writing about. It's this poetry that dramatically changes Javed's life, right down to the clothes he wears. It demonstrates just how deeply music can affect us and how emotionally connected we can become to these words. Javed, until he hears Bruce, finds himself lost, so uninspired, he hides his own words from most everyone. This all changes, of course, and it all comes from hearing someone else sing about the very thing Javed feels. It plays to more than Bruce's msuic, but to any music that touches us and inspires us, whatever that may be.
The film focuses mostly on newcomers, all of who do a wonderful job. Viveik Kalra is excellent as Javed and proves himself to be a young actor worth following. He gets some great turns here and proves to be a charming guy who gets to do everything from emotionally charged dramatic beats to silly music-video-like dances through the streets. Kulvinder Ghir also has an excellent part as the father who, while coming across as somewhat cliche at times, still turns in a wonderful part. Hayley Atwell will no doubt be the most recognizable actor here, playing Javed's English teacher and mentor who encourages him to chase his dreams. The film also gets great support from a spirited Nell Williams as Javed's love interest, Deen Charles Chapman as Javed's best friend, and Aaron Phagura as Javed's newfound friend who introduces him to Bruce. The scenes with Kalra and Phagura are especially spirited and fun as they revel in and sing Springsteens music seemingly without a care in the world.
As I said, the film wears it's heart on it's sleeve, and so isn't afraid to tug at the heart strings, but it being so unabashed is part of what makes it so great. It's not afraid to let it's characters sing all over town or use Bruce's music to stick it to some racist bullies. It does have some serious parts to it, including some great, emotional beats, but it's never so dour or dramatic that you won't have fun with it. It may not come off as the most memorable movie of the year, but it's certainly worth going to check out.

123movies Red Joan
I found "Pretty Woman" charming, and I suppose I still do, but in one respect its storyline is contrived. (In ONE respect? I hear you ask. Well, maybe more than one, but only one that worries me.) This much of the standard formula a light love story MUST follow: (a) boy falls in love with girl, (b) girl falls in love with boy, (c) obstacle, (d) union. Timing is surprisingly unimportant. It doesn't matter when (c) is established - it can be before the curtain rises, or half an hour before it falls - nor does it matter if (a) and (b) are simultaneous, or over an hour apart. (And obviously it doesn't matter which one comes first. Even the order c-b-d-a is acceptable.) The trouble with "Pretty Woman" is (c). So she's a prostitute. So what? It's a pity that twentieth-century writers have somehow acquired the idea that external obstacles are less interesting than internal ones: it isn't true, and in any event, internal obstacles are harder to draw convincingly.
Which is why (FINALLY, I get to the point) "Runaway Bride" is a more pleasant confection than "Pretty Woman". Believe me, you don't know how surprised I am to find myself writing this. Before I saw the movie I was all but certain it would be deathly stale. The premise - love blossoms between an insulting newspaper columnist and a serial jilter he writes about - screamed, "This will spend two hours going nowhere" at me ... and the curious thing is, now that I've seen the film, I can't even remember why I found the idea so unpromising. Maybe I was unduly swayed by the last Julia Roberts romantic comedy I saw, "I Love Trouble", which was at once thin, bloated, and flat.
"Runaway Bride" is none of these things. It's over two hours, but none of this is bloat: it takes its time because it NEEDS this time, given obstacle (c), to convincingly establish (a) and (b). The film doesn't waste our time any more than it wastes our own. I was never bored; very often I was even basking in the glow. Tastes in romantic comedy are hard to justify or defend, so I'll leave it at that.
