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.
