009-1: The End of the Beginning
Based on a manga and anime, this is an ultra violent and gory action movie about a cyborg woman who is betrayed by the organisation she works for as a spy and goes on the run - all the while trying to regain her past memories. Forget about any character development or meaningful plot in this movie, this is all about the heroine hero Mylene Hoffman kicking ass as she meets various villains. The action scenes are done very well. The gore content gets ramped up during the second half with blood being sprayed everywhere. The CG effects is poor to say the least although that is to be expected with a low budget movie. The cast don't have too much to work with material-wise. Performances are stereotypical all round, but the stunning Mayuko Iwasa fits right at home as cyborg 009-1. She brings the right temperament to her character, as her humane compassion starts to break away that ice-cold killing machine instinct. I enjoyed this movie for what it was - a mindless actioner.

One Week Friends
Yuki Hase falls for a girl at school that's always alone and has no friends. He tries to be nice to her and asks if he can be her friend but she coldly turns him down. Yuki though persists in trying to befriend her and finds out the truth as to why she wants to be alone. Every Monday morning, Kaori's memories disappear and the only people she remembers is her parents. A traumatic incident in the past has triggered a memory block. Undetered, Yuki tries another approach - to have a diary exchange with Kaori which will ensure she remembers what took place in the previous 7 days. This is a Japanese teen drama movie with a plot you've probably seen before countless times but it is the characters that makes this a movie you should see. Kento Yamazaki and Haruna Kawaguchi are very charming and likeable together and the rest of the ensemble cast push the storyline forward. Naturally with all plots that start well and you think things are going just too well for the pair and that the rest of their school days together are going to be happy, something has to happen to break them up and in this case it's a boy from Kaori's past. Both leads play their teen roles well even though they are in their early 20's. If you're in the mood to watch something light and bubbly yet a bit cheesy too with a not so perfect boy and a girl with some serious memory issues, then One Week Friends is a great weekend movie for you and your friends.

Starcrash
This is an unintentionally hilarious and shameless Italian Star Wars rip-off that's perfect for shouting jokes at the screen with friends. It's a kitsch comic book sci-fi adventure that delivers some of the worst direction, special effects, acting and design ever to grace the screen, and as a result, it is a gem for connoisseurs of the truly awful. It's also unmissable if you're a fan of the delightful (and buxom) Caroline Munro, since she sports a range of sexy space-attire throughout the movie. You'll also see one of the earliest roles for David Hasselhoff. Obviously, Starcrash is absolute crap, but it's entertaining crap. And should you tire of stop-motion effects that would make Ray Harryhausen wince or spaceships made from household waste and air-fix kits, then there's always lightly-oiled Caroline in her thigh high boots and PVC bikini to make you smile!

Starting with an interesting political idea (Texas breaking away from the US) which is immediately forgotten, we are left to follow the two heroes in a very generic action flick about a populace successfully resisting an actual military force. There are so many missed opportunities there that it would be pointless to list them all, although I'm sure the writers envisioned many of them and knowingly discarded them for some reason, presumably thinking that their core market just wanted firefights. Dave Bautista is probably the best thing in this movie. In conclusion, it's not a boring movie as such but it could have been a great movie which it certainly isn't.

Talk to the Dead
Yuri is a young prostitute who is made aware of a mobile phone app which lets you communicate with the dead. She is desperate to talk to her younger brother Satoshi who tragically died whilst in her care years ago. I thought that this might be an interesting Japanese movie but unfortunately it fails. The director is unsure whether to lump this as a horror or a drama movie. There is only a slight horror element to the story and it is devoid of any real scares. The lame drama and a thread about a reporter trying to find out about the mobile app which goes nowhere add to the mixed bag this movie is. Whatever interest you might have had in the first half of the movie quickly disappears in the last 30 mins. The ending is particularly bad which sums up this movie to a tee. All in all, a very disappointing movie which given it's premise should have been good.

For once, Hollywood delivers a remake with heart and inspiration - and good screen writing. Bill SkarsgÄrd is truly frightening as Pennywise. Director Andy Muschietti and his team have created that magical Spielberg-Zemeckis adventurous 80's feeling, also reminding of the classic "Stand by Me". The fine performances by the young cast, the quick, funny and good writing, the nice score by rising Benjamin Wallfisch and the cinematography by skilled South Korean Chung Chung-hoon all help in making "It" a well-working and enjoyable movie.

Carnosaur 2
Roger Corman does a cheap Aliens rip-off in this movie! A bunch of male and female mercenaries, are hired to investigate what has happened in a government facility where they were experimenting with dinosaur DNA. There they meet a teenager, who happens to be the only survivor. The story is almost exactly like Aliens and it's ridiculous how much has been copied. The dinosaurs look just as plastic and fake as before. The acting, atmosphere, script, special effects (especially gore and dinosaur effects), are just plain funny. Overall it's a rather lame monster horror movie.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
The movie undoubtedly had great visuals with an amazing universe to get into, but the promising characters and plot turned out to be a major disappointment. The plot itself could have been amazing and very thrilling, but instead it felt rushed and underdeveloped with many plot-holes and unanswered questions. There were countless scenes that felt unnecessary and over-dramatic as well. The characters weren't much better. The two main characters could have also been interesting and engaging, but turned out to be hypocritical and awkward. Their relationship and dialogue was very forced, cheesy, and predictable. Even most of the background characters turned out to be wasted or unnecessary. The movie left me feeling irritated and confused, but the world-building, action, and visuals are the only saving graces.

This has been called one of the worst movies ever made and I can see why as well. It is total garbage and zilch to recommend about it. It's a cheap ripoff of Robocop. I could spend hours detailing all the problems I have with this movie, but I'll just list them. The special effects are dreadful, the dialogue is silly and nonsensical, the music is beyond annoying, the actors have zero charisma, the acting is painful to watch, the few attempts at comedy are cringeworthy, the ending is totally ridiculous, and the whole thing is a boring mess. The list is endless. Don't waste 90 mins of your life watching this crap, find another better movie instead!

Into the Forest of Fireflies
What an absolutely stunning anime movie this is and yet another fine example of Japanese creativity and talent to make a heart warming story. A young girl named Hotaru gets lost in the woods during a summer vacation in her uncle's mountain lodge. Just when she starts to fear no one would find her, a young man with a mask covering his face appears and shows the way home. But there's something mysterious about Gin, and as it seems, he may even be a forest god in a human form. This movie draws heavily on Japanese tradition and mythology about the yokai - mysterious and playful spirits that inhabit the forests of Japan. All in all, this is a superb anime tale that will tug at the heartstrings.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
I don't think anyone expected the original 'Kingsman' to be as big and enjoyable as it was and now the sequel has come along for a fun if familiar journey. New plot theme, cool humour, and some crazy fast paced loud action. It may not be as fun as the first movie but it is entertaining. This movie offers some crazy insane action sequences from the opening car chase to the snowy mountain fight. The fight scenes are fast and can be brutal. Julianne Moore was a great addition as the villain. Having her own fortress in the middle of the forest named Poppy Land which has a look of the 1950s town with robotic dogs and guards. The 3 main leads in Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and Colin Firth are fantastic and bounce off each other brilliantly. I was surprised how funny Elton John was as Poppy's hostage. Overall, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a very entertaining action spy movie. It has some creative loud action but it can be overbearing with the cheesy CGI. Definitely well worth watching if you loved the first one.

Blade Runner 2049
Following on from the original was always going to be difficult, but I think 2049 pulls it off in a way that is satisfying to old-time fans, and people watching without having seen the original. The movie retains the atmosphere of its predecessor, partly due to the magnificent score of Hans Zimmer, partly due to the excellent visuals and overall theme of hope. Jared Leto was good as Niander Wallace, who is trying to create replicants who are happily subservient and it's a shame he didn't get more screen time. Ryan Gosling proves he is a capable actor by carrying the movie as K, and Harrison Ford, while old, still retains his old acting charm. It did go on for far too long and should have been 30 mins shorter but apart from that this was a very good sci-fi movie.

This movie is unexpected and an experience like you've never had in your life. This is exactly why I enjoy Darren Aronofsky's work, you get to see stuff you've never seen before. It's a difficult watch in parts I won't lie about that. It's suspenseful, shocking, some will absolutely love it and others will despise it. I enjoyed it because it comes at you like a ton of bricks - it grabs you and doesn't let go. Its a cerebral thrill ride, a mystery of epic proportions until the end, at which point your brain is scrambled eggs. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem were incredibly good together. I'd be lying if I said the movie didn't have its issues because it does, but I still really enjoyed it. Go and watch this with an open mind.
