I often forget to post and try to go back in time and add missed viewings. I know I've missed many and will try to be a better blogger with this...


November 2018

God Knows Where I Am
Directed by Jedd Wider, Todd Wider

This documentary will fill your heart. What a tale of a mental disorder, and how it can take over one's life. I felt the pain in the family as they spoke. Worth a watch for sure. 3.5 Hats
****************************************************************
Apostle
Directed by Gareth Evans

Watched this one on Dia De Los Muertos. Very cool. An "Irish" flick. It had its good and bad parts. Some were you knew what was about to happen. A typical "scary" theme. This one also had some "what was that?!" parts. Worth a watch. 3.0 Hats
****************************************************************

October 2018

Kuntilanak
Directed by Rizal Mantovani

Interesting foreign film. I am starting to enjoy these even more than the "American Made" Films. This one used great directing, allowing shadows, lines, and colors to give emotion. 3.0 Hats
****************************************************************
14 Cameras
Directed by Scott Husian, Seth Fuller

This one followed that 13 Cameras movie which I found interesting...and frightening. It's one of those "who is watching you?" types of movies. This is worth at least one view... 2.5 Hats
****************************************************************
The Birds
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Always a classic. Love watching Alfred Hitchcock Movies...and the Television Show. He was a brilliant Director; a little too fond of the blondes for me...Great movie. 4.5 Hats
****************************************************************
Devil's Advocate
Directed by Taylor Hackford

In the October Month, I try to watch a thriller a day. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. Had to watch this one AGAIN for the season. Great movie. 4.0 Hats
****************************************************************
Ready Player One
Directed by Steven Spielberg

Shared this one with my Video Game Development I Class. Was the last day, and what better movie to watch. If you read the book, and I recommend that you do, you will notice some changes. My second time to view. The first time was in the theater. 3.5 Hats
****************************************************************
The 3rd Eye
Directed by Rocky Soraya

A foreign film via Netflix. Liked this one! Wow. Not sure why "but" I was spellbound on this one. Great directing. Great camera shots. 4.0 Hats

The Most Assassinated Woman in the World

A very strange tale of family and dark secrets. A crazy ending for me. Thought I had guessed where the director would go...2.5 Hats

September 2018

Nightworld
Directed by Patricio Valladares

Another Netflix Movie. Not too bad. If you have sleep issues and want a fright, try it. Not my favorite, however, had great parts. 2.0 Hats

****************************************************************
Mom
Directed by Ravi Udyawar

Another foreign film via Netflix. Impressive. I thought it would be one to put me to sleep, however, I was transfixed. I wanted these persons to receive harm. Men released from a crime in a Male-Dominated Country. The women get it done! Was surprised by the officer at the end...3.5 Hats

****************************************************************
The Promise

Delerium
Directed by Dennis Iliadis

A very crazy, mental, head trip movie. Worth a watch in the wee hours. 2.0  Hats  

August 2018

The Lodgers
Directed by Bruam O'Malley

This one is one chosen during a drunken stooper. Just kidding...was up late and could not sleep. I actually fell asleep during this movie. It's really too bad for it looks like it could be a good one! An Irish Tale. I do like the Irish. They can spin a story so well. I'll watch again during October and provide a score then. 

July 2018

Alison
Directed by Uga Carlini

This one is more of a Documentary of the events that surrounded Alison Botha. This is very well done, and can show to you that we can, against all odds, overcome. WATCH THIS ONE. 4.0 HATS 

****************************************************************
Dead Like Me: Life After Death
Directed by Stephen Herek

This is my third time to watch this movie. Back in the day, I used to watch the series faithfully. The cast of characters just fit in my world. If you do not mind death, and cursing, this is one for you. 4.0 HATS 

NOTE: If you ever have the chance to view the series...DO SO!

****************************************************************
The Red Baron
Directed by Nikolai Mullerschon

Before I write my thoughts, the hubby loved this, and gave it a 3.5 Hats. For myself, I thought the acting was good. The scenes of the plane fights was GREAT. Loved that. I did feel that "Hollywood" took some FACTUAL history out. They stayed pretty true to history though. 3.0 HATS 

****************************************************************
Rememory
Directed by Mark Palansky

A very interesting tale of what our memories can show. This one has a strange feel to it. Didn't love...Didn't hate it. Good acting. 2.5 HATS

Saints and Soldiers

A real look at Bigotry and Racism. 4.0 HATS
