GameStar Movie Review – Elite Game, Insidious: The Last Key and Dad Hunt.
We’ll open your first film recommendation in 2018 with a poker princess, a demonic horror, a dozen comedies and one of Harry Dean Stanton’s last films.
Barely a few days have passed since 2018, yet there were curiosities in Hollywood. The next Cloverfield premiere, for example, has been postponed, we get a new Dragon Ball movie this year, it turns out that Dunkirk is also acting as a silent film and seems to be over for the sequel to Alien: Covenant. Puliwood was also very active, putting together a 2017 Discoverers article as well as launching their own awards ceremony, you can vote for the films in 22 categories.
We rarely show a preview of a series, but you have to watch one of Netflix’s new products, The End of the F *** ing World, as if it were a Dexter original series.
In addition, you can watch the series on Netflix from January 5, but before that the following four films will be released in cinemas:
Elite Game (Molly’s Game)
Social Network – Writer of the Social Network, Reporters and the President, Aaron Sorkin makes his directorial debut with a true-story poker story, Elite, in which we learn about the fate of poker princess Molly Bloom in interpreting big guns like the title character Chess Idris Elba or Kevin Costner. Molly was arrested a few years ago – along with several defendants – for organizing illegal poker parties and bets, which were also reportedly turned by well-known movie stars, big dogs on Wall Street and famous athletes. Most critics say The Elite Game has been a great movie, so we can’t say anything but sit down on it.
(Curiosity: Because he committed a federal crime, Molly Bloom couldn’t set foot in Canada, but at the world premiere, the ban was suspended for 48 hours to allow her to attend the Toronto International Film Festival.)
Insidious: The Last Key (Insidious: Chapter 4)
The Insidious series continues, now with a fourth episode not made by James Wan (of course he remained a producer), directed by Adam Robitel, a horror comedian, while the script is written by Leigh Whannell, who wrote the previous two chapters. But I wish he hadn’t, at least based on initial opinions, it was already superfluous to continue the story of the franchise and the medium investigating paranormal affairs, Elise Rainier (Lyn Shaye) – most critics feel very forced. Anyone who is longing for a horror and has seen everything before can give it a try, but rather only at home.
(Curiosity: Ethan Hawke rejected his first Insidious starring role.)
Not just any crew has been dragged to the Father’s Hunt by Warner Bros. In the directorial debut of the cinematographer of the Hangover Trilogy, Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are trying to entertain us with Glenn Close, Ving Rhames and JK Simmons. It’s a shame that the film couldn’t take away from the style and flaws of the comedies produced on the Hollywood assembly line, so it became like fast food: it could soon be forgotten.
(Curiosity: According to the original plans, the film would have been released as early as November 2016, but the studio postponed the premiere twice.)
While not Lucky will be Harry Dean Stanton’s last film, who died last year, his last starring role is quite certain, as he plays the title character Lucky, the a ninety-one-year-old, atheist old man who lives in a desert town at the end of the world in the company of similarly strange figures and passionately clings to his independence. But something changes. In addition, Staton has no less a name on the canvas than Twin Peaks ’father, David Lynch, so this drama is worth seeing for genre lovers.
(Curiosity: The film has won numerous awards, including at the Gotham Awards, the Haifa International Film Festival, the Locarno International Film Festival and the Hamburg Film Festival.)
