KINGSMAN - THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Hello All,
I know, I know…I missed you all too..

Now! This will incontrovertibly attract a lot of hate from 007 fans, but guess what? I'm one of those who thinks Ian Fleming is the epitome of how to make a perfect action hero spectacle. 

Or at least, I was until tonight. 

This film will blow your mind.  Quite literally, it is jam-packed with edge-of-your-seat action thrills and pure comedic gold.  Don't be expecting a moody companion piece like that of Austin Powers trilogy.  It keeps more in touch with what I call the best of British intelligence.  Although it's a lot funnier than the first installment and really builds upon the upcoming... #lipssealed

The actors are incredible, matching the character developments, the dialogue and action sequences are spectacular and the visual effects are from CGI heaven and should surely earn a nod come Oscar time…lol ok I am pushing it, but you get my point.


It’s the sort of film which made me want to find out about {MI5} the great British intelligence for a particular period. Sad of me? Maybe, but I don't mind, it was great fun.

Enjoy, I certainly did.


So until next I bid you farewell and remember "Manners maketh man." Do you know what that means? Then let me teach you a lesson.

MY WIFE AND I / ANABELLE 2

Hello Film Lovers! Cinema Foot Soldier! Film General!
It is that time of the week when we herald the arrival of delicacies from the Filmbooking kitchen. We have emerged from an interesting week that saw us laugh to the accent of the hilarious Chigurl and the entertaining escapades from the chemistry of Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. Our appetites have been steered up by the tantalizing trailers we’ve seen in the recent past. So what’s next? We are all thinking…
It’s an interesting meal table standing on the legs of comedy, drama and horror!!!
And guess what???  The same Chefs who brought us exotic meals such as THE WEDDING PARTY and THE ARBITRATION – have prepared something totally out of this world…. It has a recipe of the sensational Ramsey Noah, the much admired screen diva – Omoni Oboli and the humorous Seyi Law. The meal is quite seasoned with hilarious and entertaining scenes that promise to make you search for spaces to faint from laughter.
Ladies and gentlemen, from the stables of FILMONE DISTRIBUTION comes the much anticipated MY WIFE AND I.
Remember the table also has a horror leg??? O yes! BLUE PICTURES also brings to you the ojuju like ANABELLE 2.
So…. Whether you are keen on having a great time with family and friends or you are the kind not scared of the dark, the week is just perfect for you. Enjoy….

THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD

Hello All,
Fasten your seatbelts, ”Finally o! It’s About To Go Down” 
Love him or hate him (and it’s increasingly difficult to hate him), few would deny that Samuel L Jackson is a master of action. Perhaps SLJ finest hour, at least in this century for me was Pulp Fiction.  He is one of Hollywood’s unsung heroes that has single-handedly ruined the word mother******.
Welcome to week 34. Over the last twenty years movie directors has presented some of the most spectacular set pieces for the screen in modern times, and in a year when action cinema has been thrillingly revived, this feature marks a high point.   
Action movies has been around since 1903’s “The Great Train Robbery,” and when done right, it’s a form of pure cinema injected straight into the veins.. though I never saw TGTR in any cinema #justsaying, but you get my point.  It’s a very particular set of skills, one that’s thwarted many great directors, but in able hands such as Michael Bay/John Woo #bestever, who are capable of precisely choreographing a fight, battle, chase or showdown, to shoot them in inventive and thrilling ways.  (not like Dark Tower)  waste of time/popcorn/shawama with one sausage and one coke #justsaying.
To best describe this title would be foul-mouthed Deadpool goes to dinner with John Shaft in a location yet to be picked out by Google maps.  It is a thoroughly enjoyable, deeply satisfying piece of entertainment that transports you to a level of transcendence.
The booking department is very pleased to bring to your silver screens, The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

THE DARK TOWER

Hello All,
August 1st 2017, I look around the room seated in the middle with strange faces around me, it is notably observed, that we share one thought, incredible!
Hollywood, the best of Hollywood!! How they have taken a simple story of good and evil and transformed it onto a magnificent action feature on the silver screen that I have seen since John Wick’s franchise.   It goes without saying that there's only room for one hero in this story, and everyone knows the devil doesn't get to be the good guy. 
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  However, the forbidden truth, the unspeakable taboo - that evil is not always repellent but frequently attractive; that it has the power to make of us not simply victims, as nature and accident do, but active accomplices.  
And so it begins!! I think we've been down here in the dark long enough.  There's a whole other world upstairs.  Take my hand Filmhouse/ #FilmOneConstant tenants, and I'll be happy to lead you back into the sunshine.  I'm happy to go there because I believe most people are essentially good. I know that I am. It's you I'm not entirely sure of… 
Welcome to week 32..The Dark Tower.

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS

Hello All,

We are back!! Perhaps more confused than usual.  It suddenly dawn on me what many might refer to as a writer’s block, lack of inspiration, passion and the drive to imagine/create the extraordinary.  Where does it all come from? Have you ever wondered what if all that we have been thought, all that we know to true, turns out to be a lie of the greatest story ever told.

Welcome to week 31.  It is a question that we humans have asked for centuries and greatest minds of the human race are still searching for an answer.  “Where do we come from”.

In the vast shadow of space lies a city like non in the known Universe. Occupied with living species of superior intellect and technologies of unknown origin.  It is a city with no name, a city with no Presidents, no Commander in chief, no Emperors, no Evans, no Diezani and no Great Wall!!  It is a city of a thousand planets which brings me back to my confused state of mind.  {If we are created in his image, then who created them}.

So, as I often say! whatever the case may be, however the week is going, everyone needs a little relaxation time as often as possible and it remains our pleasure to offer you that and so much more, because your comfort remains our priority. Until next week, stay blessed.

Regards,
Remi Adeyanju,

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge


Jack is back!!
It is absolutely brilliant, astounding, entertaining, comedy to throw you off your seats and perhaps one if not the best of the franchise catalogue.
The month of May fights back at the box office and I can confirm that closing with a mega blockbuster title such as***wait for it!  Together with the children’s and democracy bank holiday will keep CFO smiling to the bank J
Honor is something all men are born with.  It cannot be taken from you nor can it be granted.
Filmhouse, we now stand on the dawn of a great exhibition showcase feature.   Tonight, our competitors #enemyfriend! Will bear witness to the unbreakable force that has made us the giant in cinema exhibition.
We will reclaim what a tried to take, we will restore the name they tried to forget, we will seat on the throne of unshakable box office returns. Tonight, the Filmhouse IMAX claims dominance over West Africa.
The booking department is super excited to present…Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge IMAX 3D

Alien: Covenant


Time!! The oxford dictionary defines this as the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. 
Alien!! A hypothetical or fictional being from another world.  The following events you are about to experience is not fictional but facts, that will leave you with more questions than answer and might perhaps bring your very existence into question.   If you are reading this, then perhaps there is hope for the human race to better prepare for inevitable.
In the year of our Lord 1979 we discovered we were not alone in the universe.  Fast forward {38 years} to be precise, in our search for understanding, we ventured into a void of no return…well, the flyer adverts said “dream Big, explore and tell a tale” they conveniently missed out “No Return”  
I once bought a book by an accomplished Cambridge scholar who said “death smiles at us all, and all a man can do, is smile back” I will be sure to pay him a refund visit in the afterlife. J
FilmOne Presents…Alien: Covenant 2017.
