So glad James Cameron is getting the rights back! T2 is my favourite of all the films! Rise of the Machines was decent...but Salvation and Genisys, they were down hill. I don't think anybody can play Sarah Connor quite like Linda Hamilton, haha.

Voice from the Stone (2017)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1544608/

e39e41546528148.jpg 

A nanny gets care of a young boy who hasn't spoken since his mother died of a mysterious illness.

There are other elements at work here in this supernatural ghost story but by the time you've finished watching this, you will be begging to ask:

Where's the ghost?

Where was the thrill and suspense?

What the heck did I just watch?

Don't waste your time with this.

2/5

The Space Between Us (2017)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3922818/

bbc450546532121.jpg

A good premise wasted!

On the first manned mission to colonize Mars, 2 months into the journey, the mission commander discovers she is pregnant.

She gives birth and the baby grows up on Mars.

When he turns 16 years old, he wants to go to Earth to see where he came from.

If you can look past the plot holes and scientific goofs that were in the movie up to now, you can still enjoy this movie but no, because the screenwriters decided to turn it into a predictable cliched and stupid teenage love story, not even a good one at that.

This movie should be retitled to The Space Between The Ears of the idiots who wrote and produced this movie because that's all there is there and not one brain among them.

Want to know how bad this film is? To rate this movie Mediocre is being generous.

Diabolique (1996)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116095/

51cf8c546745072.jpg 

Predictable, dreadful, devoid of any life and soul, boring, totally unsuspenseful and unthrilling.

Appearance wise, Sharon Stone looks like a drug junkie. She also comes across the screen as she doesn't want to be in this film but hey, a paycheck is a paycheck, right? 

The other female lead, critically acclaimed French actress Isabelle Adjani looks like a fish out of the water trying to recite her English language speaking lines - maybe they should had gotten a French actress who have had more experience in English speaking roles prior to this film.

The pacing was so slow! Oh so so very slow, you'd think you aged 10 years by the time you've finish watching this very painful remake of the 1955 French psychological thriller masterpiece!!

Do yourself a favor and stick with the original:

The Secret Of My Succe$s (1987)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093936/

In my opinion, this movie is one of three films that quintessentially portrayed the 1980's and defined and created the big worldwide financial mess we are still in, 30 years later: greed, big corporation, over spending, the love of the excess, Reaganomics.

The other 2 films are Wall Street and Working Girl.

Helen Slater is incredibly beautiful in this film. It's too bad her attempt at creating a big screen celluloid Super Girl franchise failed.

Wall Street and Working Girl were very good. At least they showed in the end you get caught lol. 

I agree Greed is not good and I think by creating jobs and educating people for jobs in demand is the

way to go. When everyone is working it's a good thing for everyone and the country.

Still looks way too clean and sanitized!

Plus get rid of the stupid JAWS music in the trailer.

Nolan has no respect for the brave young men and women who died at Dunkirk.

Becoming Bond (2017)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6110504/

d48c31550055103.jpg 

I have always wondered where the Bond films will be today if Lazenby did his 7 films, including On Her Majesty's Secret Service (OHMSS), and Sir Roger Moore never did Bond.

Moore would had been too old by the time Lazenby finished his 7 pictures run around the early 80's.

Will Dalton had more than 2 films if he had taken over the role sooner than 1987 and not end up being compared to Moore?

OHMSS is still IMO one of the Best Bond films ever made and I know I am not the only one who think so.

At the end, the reason Mr. Lazenby gave for turning down a 7 Bond films deal was not any of the reasons we've heard over the years: he didn't get along with Broccoli and Saltzman or he was fired or his agent advised him wrong and told him to quit the role after only one film (that's written on WIKI) or that he was just a dumb ass or a fool.

The reason he gave was he wanted to live his life by his own expectations: not by someone else's and not by how people perceived him. He wanted to live his life as George Lazenby and not as a fictional character named James Bond.

Unfortunately the one Bond film was also the cause of him losing out on a life with his first and only one true love: Belinda Fingleton.

That part of the movie was bittersweet and sad at the same time.

Nevertheless, even if Lazenby did miss out on fame and fortune, he said he was happy with his decision and his life still turned out well: he got married twice, had kids and he didn't have to deal with his life being put under a microscope and the public scrutiny of Becoming Bond.

On the topic of actors who have played Bond -- RIP Sir Roger Moore.

Apparently there has finally been an actor cast to play Nathan Drake in Sony's Uncharted film, and it's Tom Holland. I wasn't too sure about this choice at first, until I read that this film is going to be a prequel to Drake's Fortune. I can see Tom as a younger Drake, if you compare the in-game look of the character in the sequence from Drake's Deception where he is fifteen. I just hope that they keep it within the timeline of the actual game -- so I'm assuming this film will either be based on, or take place during, the sequence in Drake's Deception where Nate meets Sully for the first time in Columbia at the Francis Drake exhibit.

John Wick is one of the best action movies I've ever seen. It's extremely underrated.
