5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Movie......, Feb. 24 2015

“There is one thing i try very hard not to do when I write a review” is to give you the obvious, I like to give the stuff
that matters, if you look at the two actors, “Tom Hardy” an “Matthias Schoenaerts” (Bullhead and Rust an Bone)
two very good movies that he’s done, I applaud the director for not getting these two into a fight, which I think
Mr. Schoenaerts will win hands down, the guy an animal, an actually its the same director who directed Bullhead,
Michaêl R. Roskam, I just love Tom Hardy’s way of acting, I don’t think there is one director that can rush this guy
to do anything he doesn't want to do, he gives you everything in every scene he’s in, this movie “The Drop” is slow
for a reason, very methodical, which is characterized by method or order, they have to give “Noomi Rapace” something
other than these not so big parts to play, guess they haven’t found any yet, she wasn’t bad though, if you ever think
you can mess with the Mob an getaway with it you're so wrong my friend, Mr. James Gandolfini will be sorely missed in
the movie industries, I remember seeing him in The Mexican he played a Gay hit man, you think that’s funny,
an the tense moment in the movie had me on the edge, especially the last bar scene, was waiting for that outcome??
I would like to say this is my Last Review that I will ever write here on Amazon, so I would like to Thank all those people
who voted on my reviews, and a very good riddance to me, Thank You All,

“Ah here we go again” another war movie about a Sargent (Or Whatever) in the US Army that
hate Germans, I wonder where have I seen that before, was in the 60 or 70 or 80 maybe the 90,
oh no its in 2014, man we have come a long way, I really, really would’ve Loved this movie if I didn’t
see the part where Mr. Pitt took the young rookie “Logan Lerman” (Percy Jackson) hand to shoot the
German Soldier in the back, an then we come to the Best an most Stupidest part of this CRAP of a movie,
with the young girl an her Cousin, would you like like some eggs, how about me washing my face, don’t you
remember I hate Germans not my Comrades I left outside, I swear their has to be some people
that don’t know movies at all, The Longest Day” this is not???

“I never thought I would be ending up liking “Leonardo DeCaprio” until I saw Catch Me If You Can” then
The Aviator’ this one really prove to me he was for real an will leave his mark on Hollywood, he’s done that,
now that his acting abilities are for real, but I never saw Titanic or Gangs of New York to this day an never will,
the Great Gatsby” is one spectacle to be-hold that’s for sure, I think why I love this movie is for Toby Maguire
an Joel Edgerton an of course Carey Mulligan”which all three were very good, but DeCaprio was the one that
stood out from the rest, great love story, I can’t believe I’m saying that a with strait face,
actually with my key-board,

5.0 out of 5 stars The Reasoning For Five Stars. What He Say He’s Gonna Do He Does,, Feb. 22 2015
This review is from: The Guest [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
What a very unusual form for a movie, its like a Bourne Big Brother, without an in-depth story-line,
but “The Guest” is not a bad thing if you consider the rest that’s out there, Super-Soldier “Dan Steven’
(Downtown Abby), (A Walk Among The Tombstones) shows up at a house of a dead Soldier an claim to
have known him, right away the Mother took him in, but never suspect the first word that comes out of his
mouth was, your son says he loves you very much, as if she didn’t already know that, but in times of tragedy,
its easy to look past these things, one thing this has going for it is the acting from Mr. Stevens which was good
the rest was way on a sub-par level, the Daughter an the kid wasn’t that bad, but “Lance Reddick” (Fringe) he
looked scared to death, I don’t think he should do action movies he is a good talker though,
I don’t know if I can say its an Action movie, because the purpose of his visit was not as in-depth as I would’ve
like, you don’t just show up an start killing people, for some reason why they did not disclose what he was,
is beyond me, why the secret is still a mystery me, I could tell right away its not going to be good, even when
they found out where he was they keep it a secret,

“I honestly an absolutely believe that people in general don’t know what there’re missing not seeing a
movie like this, they just can’t for one time take a look at something so spectacular as this shows you,
movies like this need your undivided attention, the way it was filmed, with some of the longer takes that
I’ve ever seen on film, like “Once Upon A Time In Anatolia” an very recent the Canadian T.V show 19.2
with the one take of about 16 min without a cut, the shooting in the school, that was breathtaking to watch,
that show holds no punches the swearing is rampant, only on Bravo you can see that, I love it,
“Mysteries of Lisbon” is a movie you should watch, if only for the masterful Direction of its Director “Raúl Ruiz”
there is a story here even though a long one I never got bored of it, I waited so patiently for it to absorb me an it did,
the one an only thing that makes people stay away is the subtitles an its such a dam shame to do that,
I don’t think I could tell you the story any better than Mr. Tommy Dooley has done, so take his words an mine,
an enjoyed this movie, but like I said you have to be patient to watch this you can’t rush it, not like waiting for big bombs
to go off or a gun to be fired at you there is none of that here, just a story whiten a story of a story,
the first Disc is 118 min. part one.
the second Disc is 148 min. part two.
the third Disc is special features,
Portuguese & French 5.1 Dolby Digital. with English subtitles.

“Warrior is dam well putting it mildly for this movie,
“I just love everything that Tom Hardy” does, an if you ever want to see a gem of his,
check out “Bronson” true story, that’s acting in it’s raw form, if ever, but this huge family,
I’m putting it mildly folks, drama of two brothers an their father who’ve lost contact with each
other is nothing more than heart wrenching to watch, never have i seen in any movie a father
“Nick Nolte” that was insulted So Bad, it was almost hard to watch, Nolte has been around so long,
like back in the day, of “48 Hours” an two much to mention off hand,
it was mention in the features about his own family, I guess going to that dark place was hard for him,

1.0 out of 5 stars Leave Me Alone Please,, Feb. 18 2015
“You see, this is what I’ve been saying for such a long time now, when I’m with a group
of my friends an you just mention one iota of any thing sexual, they look at you like you just
commit murder, an when S x M was prevalent back then people used to say you are one sick person,
to want to do that, now one woman turn that upside down backwards an forwards, an every which
way but very loosely an tightly around your body, people flock to this like flies on S***, and I remember
that saying as well, like when they say you’re a real pest, it’s the same as social media today,
but I think I will leave this one alone, to the people who don’t know how to have real fun, I bet though,
there is one guy who will be first in line to see this, CBC. don’t want to mention any names, I’m staying
out of trouble, I got this strange feeling I have my own imagination on how I could use my own skills to this,
I wish they would bring back porno movies, and do it in a different form, you know like the exercise shows,
or even a comedy show, if your joke is not funny??? I wonder how I could get rich, very quick,
I only have one Shade, forty Nine more would give me Goosebumps, ooh yea,

“Saving General Yang”
AD 986. Northeast China, the early Northern Song Dynasty takes it revenge on the “Khitan” army,
for a past massacre on it’s people, Abducting General Yang Ye. which leaves his wife an her seven
sons to rescue him, the one thing about this movie like the time period of 986 AD. it seems so forced,
like it wasn't spread out to it’s full length of the story, the battle scenes were short, everything just jump
upon you so quickly there was no time fathom what was going on, there were so much emphasis on loyalty
towards their Father, which is a know fact with there heritage, but to stress it so long was really boring,
maybe they didn’t have enough money to go as far as they wanted to, but, was not that bad or a terrible outcome,
it almost makes it nothing to write home about, not like “Red Cliff” which I’m sure had an enormous budget,
people must think I promote these type of movies, not so, just like to watch everything that’s interesting, and,
time period pieces to see how we’ve evolved as a world of people, when no superhero's were around,
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Mandarin (original) with subtitles, English Dub is way better, but the one thing you
have to know is, when there is a scroll to read in Chinese, you need the Subtitles. unless you’re a mind reader,

“The one thing I don’t get from this is funny” which people say it is, ruining other people lives with greed,
an selfishness of one mans determination to make his life better by any means necessary,
how is that funny, and this guy “Joey Coyle” (Cusack) got off on an insanity plea, now that’s funny,
the justice system at work folks, the one thing the director did here is, not to worry about making
this a top notch movie, or to even enhance it with extra scenes, it is a true story of an unemployed long-
shoreman (Coyle) who happens upon $1.2 Million in cash an decide to keep it, which is not a good thing,
any day of the year, or any week of the month of the year, there is always someone looking for an outcome,
when your ego gets the better of you It’s always a Very Bad Thing, I’ve been saying that forever from what I see,
the one thing though, the performance from “John Cusack” I just don’t know how to describe it, if it’s good or bad,
the real Joey must’ve been a real insensitive person, as we see from this performance by Cusack’
I’m going to have to use my own vision of what it was like to be him, an not say bad things about the movie,
16x9 1.78:1 the menu is play an scenes,

“You can absolutely say this could be connected to other movies, in terms of action an story,
but if it’s done on a massive scale of brutality, like it’s done here, I will say it could stand out on
it’s own, like the knife fight, don’t forget the BMW scene as well, but the one thing it has,
Sad very Sad, to think that people who do these downright nasty deeds, have a court date, But,
not here, I will be your Judge Jury an Executioner, with my relentless pursuit of your demised,
I keep saying this for people who like these type of movies, the subtitles are a breeze to get through,
but there is an English dub, I did not use it because I like to keep it in it’s original form,
watching this guy (Won Bin) with his gracefulness an such a determine style of playing this character,
is nothing more than outstanding, people you need to see this, thanks’ for reading,
please don't hold your breath, i'm good,
