INXS: Live Baby Live
2 years ago via Movies on Facebook

hadn't seen this in a while and as a die hard INXS fan i fully enjoyed the revisit. The 80s hair and clothes are certainly amusing and Michael is sexy as ever. It is amazing to see such a huge spectacle - when the crowd jumps together to the opening part of Sucide Blonde.

The Post
The Post (2018)

½

"The Post" chronicles the story of the Pentagon papers, when American military analyst, Daniel Ellsberg, shared top-secret documents outlining the depths of the US government's deceptions about the futility of the Vietnam War. There is great acting, as you would expect from Meryl Streep of course, as the country's first female newspaper publisher, torn on whether to publish the information. It's true-life origins adds interest but its dramatic suspense is still gripping. And even though its capture is of a point in time of US history, one cannot help but draw parallels to similar modern situations of the press vs the US government and associated issues.

Second Act
Second Act (2018)

½

A now 40+ female worker reinvents her life and her life-story and shows Madison Avenue what street smarts can do. It is a familiar film trope and in its execution, "Second Act' does nothing new. But it is an enjoyable enough story with some totally unrealistic twists and turns. Jennifer Lopez does a good job.

Five Feet Apart
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A pair of teenagers with cystic fibrosis meet in a hospital and fall in love, though their disease means they must avoid close physical contact´┐ 1/2 It is immediately apparent that this is going to be a tear-jerker of the "The Fault in the Stars" sort, however, what unfolds is actually much better. This movie works on many levels. The plot is less predictable than expected and has the added quirk of being almost exclusively set in the hospital in which their medical trial is taking place. It actually reveals a lot about the disease of cystic fibrosis too so isn't as trivial as it could have been. Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse do well to convey a growing connection as teenage sufferers of the disease.

Mary Queen of Scots

It may be somewhat historically inaccurate and generally slow-paced, but there is still some good stuff about Mary Queen of Scots. The cinematography is impressive and there are some quality performances, even if they are part of the clear feminist agenda at its core.
