the Typical Viewing: King of Thieves

I’m not sure if it’s still in cinemas here or not, King of Thieves is another film that simply came and went (much like Gringo). It did have some sort of advertisement, very little from what I recall but it didn’t stop from bringing in a fairly big audience. I am glad that I did end up watching this film; whilst not an amazing film, it was a very enjoyable film to watch.Read More »

The Typical Viewing: The Happytime Murders

For some reason I feel like my review on A Star is Born is going to cause an eruption of disagreement. Just a reminder that what everyone likes, I may not…although with that said, I do have just as many films that I dislike that everyone else also dislikes, and one of these films is The Happytime Murders…oh boy.

the Typical Viewing: A Star is Born (2018)

The following review is an opinion of mine only. Other opinions may vary.

You’ve all, most likely, heard about the new remake of A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. Most have been pretty hyped up for this film. On Twitter, I saw a lot of people who watched the premier and said it was good. Someone even commented that it was “the best film they’ve seen this year”. On the same day as the premier, the cinema I attend also had a preview screening of the film. I didn’t watch it because I had to go somewhere the next day. However, when it did get released here, for the general viewing, I gave it a shot to see if it was a good film or not.

the typical viewing: the Equaliser 2

So you know how social media platforms would advertise upcoming movies sometimes? this happened to be one of the titles that was advertised on social media for a while. It looked like the kind of film that students would talk about…but nope. no one in my school had even heard of the first the Equalizer film. I didn’t have intentions on watching the film, but i ended up picking the first film for a fairly cheap price. I absolutely loved the equalizer. I thought it was fantastic (a little extreme but definitely a great film). It’s a perfect example of what most action films should be like. so with that said, I was pretty hyped to go and watch the sequel. I did question however, if it were going to be just like Deadpool 2, a film that lost the original films charm and wasn’t a particularly satisfying watch. Fortunately, the Equalizer 2 kept the same attitude as the first film and I came out of the cinema very pleased.

The Typical Viewing: Ichi the Killer

So here’s a film that many consider to be one of the most controversial films of all time: Ichi the killer. I would assume it’s an “in-yer-face” style of movie. It’s one of those films you’ll often see in many places, so your probably familiar with the title (and somewhat with the plot), without seeing it. I found a copy for cheap in a charity shop and decided to give it a shot. So I popped on the film later on during the day, sat down on my seat, not having a clue to what i was about to watch…it was awful.
