Their Finest

Go+: better than Go just not a Must Go

An unforgettable movie that will leave a mark in your heart.

The Ministry of Information is making short morale boosting films. Their latest production is about the Battle of Dunkirk, this time they want to emphasize a feminine perspective.

Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace) gives one of her best performances. Her character lands a job at the Ministry of Information where she plays a script writer. Bill Nighy (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) provides the most essential contribution, he plays a fading matinee star and delivers almost all the humor and best lines.
Their Finest was entertaining, funny, cute, unique and a great look at early film craft during World War 2. Still it isn’t like anything else out there but has something for everyone.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

“Sometimes, the thing you’ve been looking for your whole life is right there beside you all along.” Starlord (Chris Pratt) confesses.
I liked the original film more, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 , is a success in that it delivers on what made the first film work, but adds more in the character department and depth
My favorite in this story turns out to be Drax (Dave Bautista). Not only were his lines humorous, but they were cleverly delivered with just the right touch of understated nuance. Like when he finally told Mantis (Pom Klementieff) she was beautiful – inside. His delivery was impeccable, as if he was a born comedian instead of an ex pro wrestler. Baby Groot is also adorable.
It looks like Marvel set a record here with FIVE post-credit scenes, stay until the lights go up.

The Lost City of Z

An adventure biopic, based on the 2009 book (of the same name) by David Grann. It’s about the British explorer Percy Fawcett; who disappeared in 1925, with his son, on his fourth expedition trying to find a lost city in the Amazon. The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland. While the film is a little too slow-paced at times. I mostly found it to be a very well made and entertaining movie (especially for a biopic). I just wish the colors were brighter. The jungle is vibrant and here everything is muted.
I feel like the movie tries to gives us the real account of a man’s life. I can respect that, but the two hours and thirty minutes this film comes in at was not easy to get through.

Zachariah – 1971 DVD

Must See
This is a hilarious western musical with a mind blowing rock and roll soundtrack and the retelling of Siddhartha, which is Hesse’s retelling of the Buddha story of spiritual enlightenment, mixing American West gunfighter myth and rock and roll – two key archetypes/myths of our generation: ingenious premise, well-executed.
I was blown away by the cast, the dialogue, and the music. Don Johnson and John Rubenstein did an incredible job as wannabe gunslingers and comic moments from the likes of Country Joe are classic.
Musical performances by The James Gang, Elvin Bishop, The New York Rock n Roll Ensemble, and Doug Kershaw are killer. The rock version of the William Tell Overture is also a riot. Once you hear it, you’ll never listen to the classical version the same and the drum solo by Elvin Jones will kill you.┬áThis ride is a memorable one.
