Ava is a Netflix movie about an assassin played by Jessica Chastain who works for John Malkovich and is ordered to travel the globe to take out high profile hits. For some reason a hit goes wrong which isn't explained but Ava had to watch her back. Colin Farrell acts as the hated villain who throws Ava under the bus. The plot was poor, much similar to John Wick only with family problems and the beginning of Mile 22. Other than the fighting sequences the overall movie was hard to watch. The cast also included Common and Geena Davis. I am not sure Netflix will renew a sequel due to the fact that the ending left a cliffhanger.
A Good Old Fashioned Orgy is about a few friends in the Hamptons who plan to have one last hooray on Labor Day before the family house is sold by the father played by Don Johnson. This comedic story is short and too the point with funny scenes and B rated sex scenes that stars Jason Sedeikis, Leslie Bibb, Tyler Labine, Lake Bell, Michelle Borth, Nick Kroll, Angela Sarafyan and Martin Starr. Will Forte and Lucy Punch play newly married couple that want to be part of the orgy but the group felt uncomfortable to have them as part of their final party. Definitely a super fun comedic movie to watch aside from what the title states.
Dunkirk was a periodical piece retold by Christopher Nolan about the largest civilian mission to evacuate over 300,000 British soldiers surrounded on the coast of Dunkirk, France during WWII. I never know that it ever occurred where Churchill ordered his people to do whatever possible to try to help bring their troops home. They successfully saved their boys with their ambushes plan. The movie won Oscars for sound and film editing as well as sound mixing. The story was told from three view points all intertwined in one story. I just hated when they went from present to past to when the soldiers make it back to their hometown. The few lines in the script did not truly tell anything about the story, there was more action and less storyline to follow. The cast included Tom Hardy as a fighter pilot, Kenneth Branagh as the Commander, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles. Overall it was a good movie with no plot that I can't see watching again.
Star Trek Beyond is the third film of the new reboot with the entire cast returning to boldly go where no man has gone before. The crew of the Enterprise finds themselves in another uncharted piece of space where they encounter a reptile like human species that ends up being the long lost crew of U.S.S. Franklin headed by Idris Elba. The storyline finds Enterprise destroyed again, I mean how many times can the infamous ship by blown to pieces. At least with Star Wars the Falcon is repairable with Trekkies they have to restart from scratch much like this one. The only good thing that came out of this one was the tribute to the previous crew and a mention of Ambassador Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Anton Yelchin who played Chekhov. The acting was subpar but the action sequences were fun to watch. The story was co-written by Scotty (Simon Pegg) which it was not bad but it just felt like a thirty minute television episode prolonged into a two hour no nonsense film. I believe Abrams loves Greg Grunberg, yet another movie he plays a cameo and what's up with that city in space which looks like a giant snow globe or an upgraded Deep Space Nine. I loved the music each Trek movie has a unique melody. Overall good movie to watch, but I wouldn't remember this one.
