A gripping story of revenge as a young man returns to his home to see the effects the famine and Britsh rules have had on his family. The story is given a bit of bite not least because the young man is a mercenary returning from fighting with the British army meaning he is more than capable of avenging the death of his family.
This is a powerful movie that highlights the dark history of the British Empire. It made me reconsider my life choices of living in this country although not enough to take action.
The dark movie takes some twists as the protagonist makes his way through the countryside chased by British rangers who do not seem able to meet his match. One ranger has a crisis of conscience as he ends up helping the young man who has twice spared his life.
Although slightly harrowing this movie is well worth a watch.
Fun football documentary about the greatest footballer to never play. Kaiser, as he was known, was a hilarious character and and was determined to make his dream of being a professional footballer come through even though he couldn't play.
The Brazilian got his first contract in Italy mainly on the basis of being Brazilian and also friends with a footballer. He uses this as his in to a pro career and returns to Brazil from a European club. He moves around all the Brazilian main Rio based clubs determined on avoiding any actual playing time in case he gets found out. His methods for doing this are hilarious but mainly involve getting injuries and suspensions and moving on before being found out.
The Kaiser loves the life of a pro footballer and manages to supply the high life to lots of his teammates which is probably why they keep him around. What makes this story more endearing is that given our mastery of data these days no one could get away with it now.
Kaiser is a fun watch and highly recommended to any football fan
Rewatched this movie recently and was moved to tears by the end of it. Set in the 70s this massive miscarriage of justice made me sick to stomach and brought back stories I remember reading about as a your teenager.
The role of Gerry Conlon is superbly played by Daniel Day Lewis who is absolutely emotive in the movie. Pete Postelwhaite and a young Emma Thompson are also worthy of a mention in this movie about the Guildford 4.
Although they were vindicated in the end along with the Birmingham 6. They still lost 15 years of their lives and Guiseppe Conlon would never see justice. Also, Gerry had major difficulties readjusting to live outside jail and significant mental health which caused addiction issues caused by his incarceration.
A great movie that tells this awful story and allows us to see that it was not that long ago that high ranking people in the British justice system were willing to use desperate tactics and ruin lives to score PR wins. In the end, there was justice as no one was brought to answer for this treatment of innocent civilians.
A private war is the story of a war correspondent with an addiction to placing herself in highly dangerous situations. Marie Calvin goes above and beyond in her career as an esteemed journalist often getting beyond the front line and into enemy territory to cover brutal war crimes and atrocities.
The movie begs the question of what motivates a woman to place her life in obvious and present danger repeatedly. The adrenaline rush? To uncover criminal acts and mass murder? To save innocent peoples lives along the way? A desire to be the best at what she does? Whatever her driving motivations might be, Calvin shows the mental strain that such a life has caused her by the end of the movie.
Calvin is played very well by Rosamund Pike who portrays both her strong and vulnerable nature very well. It is good to real-life female heroine and she is supported well by Jamie Dornan.
This is a gripping biopic and a story of a fascinating life well told. The movie builds towards the battle in a Syrian city called Homs where the Assad regime carried out brutal shelling on civilian targets which Calvin finds herself in the middle of.
