Hereditary
(2018)

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Alexander
(Directors Cut) (2004)

Conquering 90% of the known world by the age of 25, Alexander the Great led his armies through 22,000 miles of sieges and conquests in just eight years. Coming out of tiny Macedonia (today part of Greece), Alexander led his armies against the mighty Persian Empire, drove west to Egypt, and finally made his way east to India. This film will concentrate on those eight years of battles, as well as his relationship with his boyhood friend and battle mate, Hephaestion. Alexander died young, of illness, at 33. Alexander's conquests paved the way for the spread of Greek culture (facilitating the spread of Christianity centuries later), and removed many of the obstacles that might have prevented the expansion of the Roman Empire. In other words, the world we know today might never have been if not for Alexander's bloody, yet unifying, conquest.

Trailer = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh6LKIdxqCU

The biography of Alexander by Oxford University professor Robin Lane Fox was an original inspiration and source of information for Director Oliver Stone. His reward was to be allowed to take a place at the head of what is one of the largest cavalry charges ever filmed. Professor Fox gladly dressed up as a Macedonean cavalry officer to live his dream of charging for Alexander. - Trivia

I found this a bit more entertaining. I liked how they contrasted Danny's fighting ability while under Bob Hoskins with his piano playing skills while under Morgan Freeman. Kind of reminded me of Golden Boy, the film about a person who had to choose between playing the violin and boxing.

The Take
(2016)

Michael Mason, a pickpocket living in Paris, steals a bag with a teddy bear in it. Not realizing the toy contains a timed bomb, he tosses it aside on a busy street. A few seconds later it explodes, killing four people. CCTV footage reveals Mason's face and the French police tag him as a terrorist threat. The explosion, although botched, was set up by a select group of the French Interior Ministry as a decoy so they can make a half billion dollar digital transfer from a bank (closed on French National Day) -- hence the title Bastille Day. In a separate CIA investigation the unruly agent Sean Briar discovers the real story behind Mason's "terrorist attack". The two men, on different sides of the law, collaborate to bring the corrupt members of the Ministry down.

I thought that this one had so much potential (and such a great setup!) and then didn't make it work. It was trapped between being a supernatural thriller and a crime drama and I didn't like the way that everything shook out.

The birth date stated in Peter Devereaux's (Pierce Brosnan's) file, May 16, 1953, is Brosnan's real-life birth date. - Trivia An actress would've took 10 yrs off :P


I think they were trying to create a new franchise for the former Bond star. Too bad they had to add a younger guy to the mix.

I think you were more generous to The Specialist (never bought the chemistry between the two leads, although the end song was pretty nice) and Hush (set in Kentucky! :oops: ) than I would have been.

I just didn't care for the whole
revenge for a rape/murder by cops
element. Such a disappointment.

I loved the utter creepiness of the trio of guys approaching the girl and offering to bring her dead brother back to life. And I liked the way that the movie showed how much her relationship with her brother meant to her. That whole part had a really strong heft. And then it was flashback time and I was like "Nooooooooo!".

Have you seen A Dark Song? It also addresses the whole "undergoing horrible rituals to bring back a loved one" plot, but much much better.

I just found your comments from last month about it. I think it got buried by the Shivers discussion so I didn't see it at the time.
Funnily enough, I actually mentioned Rumpled last year when I wrote about it:

Captain Terror wrote:
A woman enlists an occult guy to carry out a ritual for her, and about 90% of the film's duration consists of these two characters performing the ritual. Surprisingly watchable in spite of that, but this doesn't strike me as one that any of you would like. I'm sure Rumpled hated this one if he saw it. However, I'm giving it an extra star based on one weird thing that happens that was completely unexpected. Depending on the viewer it might be the best or worst part of the film, but it was something I haven't seen before, so that counts for something.

It struck me as one of those "nothing happens" movies that I like but Rumpled doesn't (see: Bokeh) :) Glad to know someone else liked it though. That "one weird thing" I mentioned was
the appearance of the angel.
I wasn't expecting the film to "go there" and fully commit to it, so I was impressed when it did.

A Dark Song didn't strike me as a "nothing happens" film (a sub-genre that I'm not entirely opposed to). I feel like the character dynamics along with the ambiguity of the "magic" gave it a degree of movement and energy that Bokeh didn't have.

The original Swedish title for the film was a direct translation of the original title, Producenterna (The Producers). The film didn't arouse much interest from the public. This changed when the title was replaced by "Det våras för Hitler" (Springtime for Hitler). Then the film became an instant smash. - Trivia
