Walking out of the theather after seeing Hotel Artemis I felt numb. This type of numbness hadn’t yet happened in 2018, so I felt a little shocked. After I had time to digest this feeling of nothingness, I decided that I was still going to review Hotel Artemis. Because if I had suffered through a really bad movie, I might as well trash it on my blog.
This review will be bittersweet. I can’t avoid the joy nor the sadness Star Trek Beyond gave to me, and everyone will understand why. So this review, much like the movie, is for Anton.
There are some spoilers in this ramble-review, therefore, don’t spoil the movie for yourself.
I loved the first Star Trek (2009) and that love has grown even stronger after those close to 20 times I’ve watched J. J. Abrams bring that final frontier onto my screen. So one could only imagine my excitement when I was sitting in the cinema and waiting for Star Trek Into Darkness to blow my mind! But nobody, including me, could have predicted the fact that my mind was so intact that I wanted to blow it off myself.
Warning! This posts is mostly meant for those who have seen and enjoyed the second season of AHS. In other words, this post contains SPOILERS!
When it comes to some shows, I decide to go with the ignore all season and then spend the entire day watching all the episodes back to back option. As you can guess, American Horror Story’s second season had the pleasure to be consumed all at once this year. Then all of a sudden it had the pleasure to be forgotten completely and if Sati from Cinematic Corner hadn’t mentioned my lack of review about the Asylum oriented season, this post wouldn’t be here. So thank you, Sati!
Not to over crowd the blog with trailer posts I’m gonna put two very serious and great movies into one. Starting with a Hollywood A-list packed movie Margin Call and finishing with yet another Clint Eastwood movie which stars the great leading man Leonardo DiCaprio.
• Margin Call: This is another Wall Street movie that seems to be a lot better than the one Michael Douglas and Shia LeBouef did simply because it is packed with such great actors I can’t even grasp the seriousness and awesomeness of this movie. Starting with Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons the list continues with Zachary Quinto, Paul Bettany, Simon Baker and Stanley Tucci. Some might be also excited for Penn Badgley and Demi Moore but I think the first six guys mentioned are definitely the creme topping of this movie. Who will be the cherry on top? Maybe it’s gonna be a what instead cause the whole story looks promising as well. Though it already had its opening at Sundance Film Festival it’s yet to hit the big screens this upcoming on October 21st
• J. Edgar: While Margin Call gathers a lot of great male actors, J. Edgar doesn’t want to fail to deliver the same amount of greatness. Starting with the man behind the camera – Clint Eastwood brings onto the screen the story of J. Edgar Hoover (written by Dustin Lance Black who put Milk on paper which of course he won an Oscar for) the list continues with Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick (his first very serious movie role!?), Dermot Mulroney and Judi Dench. Not bad either, considering that both of these movies probably end up winning a lot of awards. For J. Edgar you have to wait until the 9th of November. (PS: Leo with brown eyes is weird or is it just me?)
