Ghost In The Shell Trailer


The Major is the leader of a specialist armed forces unit called Section 9; the Major and her team deal with specialist cyber terrorist attacks. The reason why the Major is such an effective leader and fighter is she's not entirely human. She was saved by a group of specialist doctors who work at a lab which is part of the Hanka group. The Major can withstand huge amounts of damage to her body 'shell' but that doesn't mean that she's completely invulnerable - if she pushes herself too far, she will eventually die. Her own mortality doesn't stop The Major from testing her limits.

The Major finds herself involved in what could be a huge cover-up; so big, most might presume it attested to nothing more than unproven conspiracy. Treading a line of fact and manipulated reality, The Major and her team must find a way to uncover the truth behind dangerous hacks.

The 2017 movie 'Ghost in the Shell' is based on the manga series of the same name. Whilst in the movie the lead character is known predominantly by the name 'The Major', in the original stories, she was called Motoko Kusanagi.

I, Origins Trailer


Ian Gray is a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the human eye. One day, a strange recurrence of the number 11 leads him to a photograph of a pair of eyes that could subsequently reveal the spiritual truth of the universe. The owner of the eyes is a girl named Sofi who, unlike Ian, believes that she has known him in a past life. Ian tends to avoid any non-scientific interpretation of his feelings but cannot hide the fact that he feels complete with her in his life. The pair fall quickly in love and decide to get married, but in a cruel twist of fate, she tragically and suddenly dies. Depressed and empty, Ian receives a call from his lab mate who reveals an impossible discovery; despite the fact that everyone is meant to have totally distinct eyes, she has found a person in India who shares the same irises as Sofi.

Seven Psychopaths Review


Excellent

Martin McDonagh gleefully plays with both the gang thriller genre and the moviemaking process with this enjoyably absurd action comedy. It's a little self-indulgent, acknowledging how difficult he found it to follow up his acclaimed film In Bruges. But a continual stream of hilariously clever gags make it thoroughly entertaining, and the seriously great actors are so playful that it's infectious.

At the centre, naturally, is an Irish writer named Marty (Farrell), living in Hollywood and struggling to write his next screenplay. He settles on the title Seven Psychopaths, and decides that his lead character will be a nonviolent Buddhist killer. Otherwise he's stuck. Then he discovers that his hyperactive pal Billy (Rockwell) is running a scam with Hans (Walken), kidnapping dogs and claiming the rewards from their owners. This all goes terribly wrong when they grab the beloved shitzu of the mercurial thug Charlie (Harrelson), sending him into a murderous rampage. And as Marty finds himself in the middle of it, his script starts to take shape.

McDonagh is adept at combining freewheeling wackiness with more astute observational comedy. This film isn't as emotionally resonant as In Bruges, but it crackles with the same sharp dialog and offhanded violent silliness. Most of this plays up the amusing shock value of sudden death, although there are moments that are surprisingly touching, mainly due to a wonderfully textured turn from Walken. Rockwell is the other standout as the manic, unpredictable Billy, an enthusiastic mischief-maker. And Harrelson has a great presence as the funny-terrifying Charlie.

Is Colin Farrell Movie Seven Psychopaths Any Cop?


Colin Farrell Martin Mcdonagh Michael Pitt Christopher Walken

Seven Psychopaths, starring Colin Farrell, hits US cinemas tomorrow (October, 12 2012). The Martin Mcdonagh directed film see a struggling screenwriter inadvertently caught up Los Angeles criminal underworld after a gangster’s Shih Tzu is kidnapped. It’s a comedy, unless you didn’t get that by now. We’ve trawled through some Seven Psychopaths reviews, so you don’t have to.

Early indications suggest that the film is really quite good, as it has a healthy rating of 95% on film-score aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Empire Magazine says it’s “a funny, dirty and very, very violent comedy that tilts at serious themes (as did In Bruges, but in a different way) and does so with a messy, irreverent, gung-ho energy.” Another review, this time from Entertainment Weekly, praises the film’s script, which was also penned by McDonagh: “An energetically demented psycho-killer comedy set in faux-noir L.A.,” writes Lisa Schwarzbaum. “Seven Psychopaths rollicks along to the unique narrative beat and language stylings of Anglo-Irish writer-director Martin McDonagh, channelling Quentin Tarantino.” High praise indeed!

In fact, most reviews were unanimous in praise for the crime-comedy, which stars Michael Pitt, Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken in an impressive cast. We couldn’t see any negative words about it, apart from the New York Observer calling it “genuinely humor-resistant.” But with its overwhelmingly positive reception, it looks like your cinema tickets for tomorrow night are sorted. U.K viewers will have to wait until December 9, 2012 to see it, though.

Jailbait Review


Good
Oh, bummer. Young petty criminal druggie Randy (Michael Pitt) has just run into his state's tough three-strikes-you're-out law, and as the cell door slams behind him, he's looking at a 25-year stretch. The question: how much of it will he have to spend with his cellmate and new best buddy Jake (Stephen Adly Guirgis)?

Jailbait, Brett C. Leonard's tight little two-character film, is claustrophobic and grim, not exactly a kick-back-and-relax kind of movie but one that's worth watching for the nearly wordless performance of Michael Pitt, whose reaction shots never fail to speak volumes.

Bully Review


Excellent
Larry Clark -- who wrote and directed his first film, Kids, at the tender age of 52 and in the process, broke the mold about what we should expect from a movie about teenagers -- returns to familiar ground in Bully, a striking and harrowing follow-up.

A slam-dunk natural subject for Clark, Bully follows the based-on-reality story of Marty Puccio (Brad Renfro), who along with his girlfriend Lisa (Rachel Miner) decides to brutally slay his "best friend" Bobby (Nick Stahl) as payback for a lifetime of abuse. Set in the ultra-trashy nether regions of southern Florida -- and I mean seriously, beyond-WWF trashy -- there's little to do but drive your car, play video games, have sex, and beat the crap out of your friends.

Bully Review


Good

A troubling vérité-style docudrama about worthless, contemptible, murderous teenage losers, "Bully" is a raw and graphic, half cautionary tale, half exploitation flick, similar to director Larry Clark's controversial 1995 film "Kids."

But as infamous as "Kids" was for its grossly candid depiction of drug use and careless, even vengeful sex, it was largely fictional. "Bully" isn't quite as coarse, but may be more chilling as it is based on true events: The circumstances surrounding the very premeditated but very sloppy slaying of a malevolent south Florida delinquent who physically intimidated and verbally abused his friends until, well, they killed him.

Fascinating in a "Cops"-meets-Psychology Today, can't-help-but-look kind of way, every character in this film is a vile imbecile -- the kind of nitwits who genuinely look to angry white rapper Eminem as a role model.
