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.

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

It’s Easter 2017!!


It’s Easter 2017!!
As with many of my generation it was star wars, Indiana jones, the good the bad & the ugly that first made me aware of a thing called “movies”.  Whilst many of the Indy’s adventures benefit few outside the niche group that is enthusiastic museum-goers, Star wars took us to the darkest parts of space and beyond and Eastwood brought us back to desert for “a few dollars more”.
Today’s generation is faced with a genre filled with superheroes that are genetically modified into the boss baby fresh at of crèche, to the city of a thousand planets guarded by the valerian army to protect a group known as the Power Rangers.
I like to take a moment to wish you all a very happy Easter, regardless of your religious persuasion (or lack thereof).  Easter is a period of reflection which is considered within the Christian beliefs, that which is neither more nor less than the annual commemoration of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. For this reason, these phrases may motivate you to think about the holidays a little more than superfluous.
So, I am going to end with this! whatever the case may be, however the week is going, everyone needs to remember that Easter reminds us that hope must never be lost for as dark as the road may seem, there always lies light at the end of it. May all your prayers be fulfilled.  Until next week...#dropspen#remiout
FilmOne presents, GO GO POWER RANGERS!

John Wick: Chapter 2


Hello All,

We are meant to believe that shadows only appear in front, behind and sideways, but never on top.  You are about to discover a new believe.

With the titular character ably portrayed by #Mrshadow as the quintessential and confident bad-ass, trigger happy, gun loving and  lonely character, the surrounding cast also held their chin high as they displayed true class in every scene.

While the world of movie making may have changed, one thing remains constant: action movies.  Are you ready for what is coming, are you ready for were we are going #MDJ But you better make sure you’ve made room for the glorious world of broken bones, covert operations, and killer instinct that make action flicks the ultimate in the movie watching.
The beauty of flicks like John Woo's undisputed classic Hard Boiled is that they're able to mask otherwise mundane, seen-it-before plots by simply blowing our minds in presentation. 

Filmhouse, do you know what makes a good action movie? A retired assassin with a double identity, an organization known to harbor crime in the dark corners of the underworld, a Customized black blazers from Tm Lewin, and one hell of a sexy bad a** mustang 2017 model.  Yes!! His back in another chapter in Moscow.

Filmhouse/FilmOne, the booking department presents John wick Chapter 2

KONG SKULL ISLAND


Hello All,

If you are reading this… the truth is out and the World will never be the same.Over the years in our search to discover who we are and where we came from, we have explored into unknown territories.  We discovered unexplained mysteries in the course of our journey with our technology and scientific knowledge we titled our discoveries such as; The Bermuda Triangle, Stonehenge, Salar De Uyuni and Aokighara.  We became Kings of these lands, worshiped by many and we were called the untouchables…or so we thought.

Logan, aka The Wolverine


Date of birth: unknown, Father/Mother: unknown, Name: Logan, aka The Wolverine, Battles won: All, Children: spoiler alert!! You are about to find out..

Welcome to the month of March. where heroes take us through an emotional rollercoaster, where heroes pass on to the afterlife and where the next generation of pace setters are born.  I am one of such #justsayingbirthmonth.

Everything that has a beginning, has an end.  I am going to try and not get too emotionally attached to this picture title, so I am just going to say…brilliant, outstanding, complete entertainment and a flat out masterpiece.

It is the year 2029 and the world is not the same as it was.  Mutants... they're gone now.. in the outskirts of Mexican border, just before the Trump Wall J, the last of the ageing ambassadors of the X generation makes one final stand.  A stand that will no doubt leave you on the very edge of your seats.  This movie is sophisticated and delivers a grand, tragic story.  If you loved the title Deadpool? then get ready to be blown away.

Seating back as the credits came up on the IMAX theater, my memory bank travelled back in time to a concentrated camp in East Berlin, to a castle in Yorkshire England, to an empire in Tokyo Japan.. Marvel has done a fantastic job in creating a character that transcends into different genres and well i guess they couldn't have ended it in any better way as a last farewell to the fans and his signature role.  

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.


FilmOne distribution presents Logan {Wolverine 3} the final chapter.

What is a Dogs Purpose? & Evil Will End January 27th


Dear All,

Welcome to 2017.  Finally!! we have a film that hits the spotlight this week and it’s not a dog’s purpose *choughs*.

It’s at an end to the evil who that has resided in the silver screens across 196 Countries since 2002.   It is perhaps a scaring thought to think that the existence of the human race would one day be dependent on the choices/actions of a single individual.  Hollywood over the years has distributed this notion with their big blockbusters to signify an impending end to all living things on planet Earth.
