    Arrival (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2543164/

    What the duck was this???

    What a stupid movie!



    They (the critics) dare to compare this film with Interstellar, Contact and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and put it in the same league as those movies?

    I didn't watch this in the theaters.

    If I did, it should had been named Departure as in: "hurry up and Depart our planet, you dumb aliens!!" so the movie can hurry up and end and I can hurry up and Depart for home.

    Some of the critics reviews said:

    1. "it unfolds in an unwavering tenor of chest-tightening excitement" YEAH! More like neck tightening agony because I had the sudden uncontrollable urge to hang myself during the entire time I was viewing of this movie!

    and

    2. "something to reignite your excitement for cinema!" more like to reignite my hate for the crap Hollywood puts out nowadays and then dare us to charge almost $20 a ticket to watch it!

    and

    3. "a must-see experience for fans of thinking person's sci-fi" If any of the today's audience had half a brain to appreciates a good film, maybe they will appreciate a good sci-fi but a good sci-fi Arrival isn't.

    The Great Wall (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2034800/

    The Hollywood lead whitewashing of history continues.

    If I were Chinese or Asian, I would find this movie racist, prejudice and offensive toward my culture.

    The West owe many of what of the things they enjoy today to China - invented by an advanced culture when the population in Europe were still in its cultural, industrial and agricultural infancy.

    Yet this movie makes China looks incompetent and of course, a White man in 960 A.D. comes along and saves the entire Chinese Song Dynasty.

    The strangest thing about this movie is that is a joint Hollywood China production and directed by one China's greatest film director.

    Weird that they (the Chinese involved in this production) allowed it to happen.

    There's Something About Mary (1998) The Director's Cut

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0129387/



    This movie is still funny after almost 19 years and Cameron Diaz never looked better than!

    The director's cut has 10 +/- minutes of extra scenes.

    I don't remember this scene in the theatrical version or the VHS version:



    After all this years and half a dozen viewings I still have a lingering question.

    How is Mary's parents house shaped? How does Ted looks out of the bathroom window from downstairs and he can see Mary and her Mother in one of the upstairs bedrooms???

    The house must be L shaped or U shaped or something???

    Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2119532



    Desmond Doss was a U.S. Army soldier in World War II who refused to even touch a rifle in basic training because of his religious beliefs.

    The U.S. Army tried to boot him out of the service first by having the drill instructors abuse him so he would quit basic training. His own platoon mates called him coward and traitor and they even beat him hoping he would quit. When that failed the Army tried to rate him a section 8: unfit for duty due to mental illness so they could throw him out of the army. When that also failed the Army attempted to court martial him and sentence him to prison in Leavenworth.

    Doss fought the the court martial and won and he was allowed to remain in the Army as a Combat Medic.

    During the Battle of Okinawa, Doss single handendly saved 75 of his fellow men: all of them wounded. Many of these men were the same ones who were with him at basic training and called him a coward and beat him.

    Doss did so while under enemy fire during a 12 hour period, most of that at night, by lowering them down a 350 feet ridge, one at a time, using a rope.

    For his actions, Doss became the first and only conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor for actions above and beyond the call of duty during World War II.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmon...Honor_citation

    Directed by Mel Gibson, this is the Best and Most Important war movie since Saving Private Ryan.

    Hacksaw Ridge not only deserves to be nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Andrew Garfield), Best Actress (Teresa Palmer), Best Editing, Best Screenplay, etc. etc., it deserves to win in each category.

    If the Academy snub this film because they have a personal agenda against Mel Gibson, then every member of the Academy can ducking go to hell!

    In-Cheon Sang-Ryuk Jak-Jeon (2016) aka Operation Chromite

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4939066/



    Decent war film from South Korea loosely based on:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle...n_infiltration

    Llam Neeson plays General Douglas MacArthur with great conviction.

    There was only one problem with this film.

    I kept waiting for Neeson to pick up a Thompson submachine gun or a Colt 1911 .45 acp pistol or a M-1 Garand and by himself, take on the entire 7,500-men strong North Korean defense troops garrison stationed at In-Cheon.

    Major Dundee (1965) Extended Restored Version



    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059418/

    Peckinpah is a good director but he has a history of making messy films and this is one of them.

    Filmed in Mexico without a concrete complete script and combined with Peckinpah getting distracted by the local entertainment: lots of tequila, latina women (including having an affair with a Mexican actress in the cast that he ended up marrying while on the set) during the filming of this movie, Chalton Heston had to take over.

    Then the studio cut the shooting schedule down which caused the filming to end abruptly even after Heston gave up his entire salary to keep Peckinpah on the shoot and keep the filming going.

    Even with this 29 min longer restored extended version, it still looks messy.

    A dozen set pieces with no end and no beginning and most of them with no relation to one another just pieced together to form a single film creating several continuity goofs.

    Peckinpah is one of those talented directors who directed a dozen or so movies and only a few of them were remembered and he never found the respect and fame he deserved.

    3/5

    The Crash (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3297382/

    Stay the heck away from this movie if you value your time and intelligence!

    I watched about 20 min of it.

    It thinks people are dumb and have no knowledge of how computer works, how internet works, how server works, how the stock market works; therefore it's easy to shove this stupidity down the audience's throats!

    If it was so easy for anyone to hack and manipulate the stock market computers (still running on DOS supposedly) as this movie wants us to believe, we will all be billionaires.

    I don't know who this Aram Rappaport director is but whoever gave him the $ to make this film must be a bigger idiot than he is.

    I give it 0/5 for the 20 min I watched.

    p.s. look at the cast names on the movie poster. The only explanation I have for them for signing up to be in this film is they all needed a new Ferrari and Lamborghini. What a waste of talent!
