Calibre



Tensely solid Netflix UK suspense in a similar vein to Eden Lake.
Leaves you thinking far after the credits.
Ya, saw that too. Would you have done what that guy did near the end btw? So many questions.

Netflix is a pretty solid choice, pumping out so many good flicks.

I think that's the issue though - it's such a moral personal choice.
Do you kill your close friend to return to your new family but deal with the life-long guilt, or do you die and leave a widow and fatherless child?
I think only someone faced with that predicament right at that point could decide only then - so many variables.

Having said that - his friend was an alcoholic/drug addict, with no clear direction in life and lacking the morals of his own - so is his life truly worth salvaging?
Also - would his friend have done the same if the tables were turned? I don't think so, as at one point he had his knife pointed at his buddy and basically told him that if he didn't let him remove the bullet from the child's head, he would have killed him.

What would you do?

Coco and I must say this movie had some dark themes for a children's movie.

Ya, that's a tough one...he did 'save' me from the dad...maybe....but if I was that unlucky to do that in the 1st place, I'd just face the music vs making it worse. I didn't pay attn to the friend's personal troubles/demons, but I guess it makes it easier to pull the trigger.

Thing I wanna know is why did they run when the 'gravesite' was discovered...did the mob really suspect them?

I don't think so BUT they were already paranoid and scared to begin with, plus with a mob mentality like the small town has they could have checked their hotel/Jeep/knapsack and discovered the evidence, and then they would have been screwed.

I don't think one thinks rationally in situations like this - it's like when you have a bad date or an unprepared job interview - it's only AFTER when you look back on it do you see what you could have done differently/better.

Watched Blockers, thought it was funny. John Cena is a good in comedies.

Sicario 2

Not as good as the first but still worth a watch. Ending was, damn.
Really? I was very disappointed. Only good scene was the opening I found

Thoroughbreds

Tight, little, nasty thriller, with solid performances, and excellent direction.
Killer soundtrack as well. This and A Quiet Place have topped my list for 2018 over the past couple days.

Hmm, that's what i thought also...which made it so tense when they decided to run. If you have to do the whole charade, might as well play it to the end, but I guess you're right when ppl are *really* faced w/ this situation, reason may just go out the window.

Death Wish.
It was good to see Bruce Willis back to action. Maybe not at his best and the movie is not Oscar worthy, but still entertains.
Bruce has to work on his facial expressions, though. He looked almost the same when he was angry, or sad, or happy.
+1 for Death Wish. I just finished it. Not the most brilliant or unique script but very well executed. A few of those scenes were brutal
