Okja is a powerful drama about a girl trying to get her friend back to safety. This film also has a powerful message about the food industry and animal rights. This film has excellent performances by the cast and awesome directing/writing by Bong Joon Ho. For 10 idyllic years, young Mija has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja - a massive animal and an even bigger friend - at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when family-owned, multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where an image-obsessed and self-promoting CEO has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission. This film is all around excellent. The cast is amazing with such performances by actors like Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Lily Collins and Steven Yeun. This film also had performances by actors with bright futures. These people included Devon Bostick and Seo-Hyun Ahn. The writing and directing were excellent also. Ho's directing was very quick paced when it needed to be and slow when it needed to be slow, unlike other action films that are inconsistent with it's pace. The writing was excellent, the film felt raw and emotional. The love between Mija and Okja felt real. You could feel the care of the activists and the coldness of Lucy and the Mirando corporation. The runtime was great, the film wasn't too short and it wasn't too long. The soundtrack was beautiful. The cinematography was beautiful. Okja delivered a heart felt film looking at animal rights and food production. Okja had excellent performances and an excellent message. Okja is truely a moving film. Everyone should check out this amazing moving film.
"Our sins have come back in a physical form... and they're pissed." Flatliners is a 90s cult classic, so classic that it's getting an unnecessary 21st century remake. I thought after the release of the remake trailer, it was time to check out the original 1990 Cult Classic. After viewing, I really enjoyed this film. It was an excellent Philosophical Psychological Horror/Thriller. Medical students begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights. Each has their heart stopped and is revived. They begin having flashes of walking nightmares from their childhood, reflecting sins they committed or had committed against them. The experiences continue to intensify, and they begin to be physically beaten by their visions as they try and go deeper into the death experience to find a cure. This is one of those thrillers that embark into uncharted territory, that territory being Philosophy and Religion. Those can be seen as touchy subjects in Film, but this film did an excellent job not getting to one sided on the subject. The cast was star studded, with such actors like Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, and Julia Roberts. Every actor put 110% into their performances and it shows. The Writing was excellent. The script didn't feel cheesy or cheap. It felt genuine and raw. The directing was excellent, the film included alot of amazing imagery. This is definitely one of Joel Schumacher's best films, up there with The Lost Boys before he took the turn into Batman Territory. The soundtrack was chilling. Good job to James Newton Howard on his excellent score. The film was a perfect runtime and never dragged. The film had an excellent message about how what we do effects people, wven if we don't see it in the "here and now" moment. This film was a fun film to watch and made you think about what you believe and what you might have done to other people. I definitely recommend that everyone checks out this film, even if you don't enjoy Horror/Thrillers this film is a good watch for everyone. Flatliners is definitely one of my favourite horror/Thrillers.
"It's A Boy!" The Dream Child is the fifth Instalment of the Nightmare On Elm Street series. This instalment is one of the not so good sequels, but it still has it's moments. Alice, having survived the previous installment of the Nightmare series, finds the deadly dreams of Freddy Krueger starting once again. This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world. The only one who can stop Freddy is his dead mother, but can Alice free her spirit in time to save her own son? This film delivered a somewhat interesting spin to the series. The new concept of an offspring brings a fresh idea to the series. The kills are some of the most crazy in the series. The most crazy kill in my opinion is the overeating kill. That kill is so crazy and graphic, it's so over the top. My favorite kill in this film is the Comic Book Kill though. I found that kill creative and interesting. The actors played their roles well, but the standout is the kid who played Jacob. He played that character so well for being so young. The negatives of this film include the really weird Daddy Krueger storyline and the weird baby spawn. The baby spawn is so well animated that he's gross to look at. Also some of The special effects look outdated. Other than that, this instalment is a good sequel with a fresh idea in the Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise. This one isn't one of my favourites, but I found it somewhat enjoyable. This one is definitely my 6th favourite in the Nightmare Franchise. Any fans of Freddy or Horror movies in general should at least give this instalment one viewing. Not my favourite Nightmare film, but definitely not the worst either.
"Welcome To Wonderland, Alice." The Dream Master is the forth instalment in the Nightmare On Elm Street Series. This is one of the better ones. Even though it's sometimes cheesy, it's still a fun horror flick. Following up the previous Nightmare film, the dream demon Freddy Krueger is resurrected from his apparent demise, and rapidly tracks down and kills all three of the surviving Elm Street kids. However, Kristen (who has the ability to draw others into her dreams) wills her special ability to her friend Alice before her demise. Afterwords, Alice soon realizes that Freddy is taking advantage of that unknown power she now wields to pull a new group of teenage children into his world. This film beings a cool new idea to the series. Alice gains the kids powers once Freddy kills them. One of them is good at karate while another is strong. She gets all those powers by the end of the film. That idea was an interesting plot point in this film. The acting was great again, a group of believable teenagers. The kills were over the top as always. The best kill in this film has to be the karate kill or the waterbed kill. Those kills are presented with a classic freddy one liner also. The weirdest kill though is the bodybuilding kill. It has weird visuals and doesn't really make sense. The runtime was good and the film was well paced. This is either my third or forth favourite in the series. It's definitely one of the better ones. If you love Freddy or horror films, check this one out.
"I Am The Wizard Master!" Dream Warriors is the third instalment in the Nightmare On Elm Street Franchise. This film is one of the better instalments in the franchise. This film is my 2nd favourite in the series. It beings some new interesting ideas to the series while keeping the charm of the original. Picking up where the original Nightmare left off, Nancy has grown up and become a psychiatrist specializing in dream therapy. She meets a group of children at a local hospital facing Freddy Krueger, the same demon she once encountered in her sleep. One of them is Kristen, who has the power to draw other people into her dreams. Working with a male doctor assigned to the case, Nancy helps the kids realize their special abilities within the nightmare world. When Freddy captures one of her charges, she leads a rescue attempt into Krueger's domain, in hopes of putting his spirit to rest once and for all. This instalment beings some new interesting concepts to the franchise. One of those ideas include the kids having powers in their dreams. Some of the kids have some sweet powers in their dreams. The acting in this film was great. The kids played the parts well. Heather Langenkamp and Robert Englund come back as their fan favourite characters. The kills were super fun in this film also. My favorite kill being the "Primetime" kill. The runtime was not too long and it wasn't too short. The only negative I have is some of the CGI. Skeleton Krueger looks animated and takes you out of the film. Other than that this is an excellent horror film. If You love the Freddy Films or you just love horror films in general, Definitely check this one out.
