The Old Man & the Gun

So he'lll never return to the silver screen ?



Well, what do you do then?
Well, that’s a secret.

With “The Old Man & the Gun“, we probably say goodbye to a real film legend. According to some sources, Robert Redford wants to draw a line under his rich film career in a stylish way. In my opinion, he couldn’t have made a better choice because in “The Old Man & the Gun” he can demonstrate his charming side one last time. This 83-year-old actor conquered all the women’s hearts effortlessly when he was younger. And to be honest, he’s …

The Old Man & the Gun

Its a dull, slow paced movie. An old thief robbes here and there, falls for an old lady and has ,,Robin Hood,, aura, but a hero without real adventure and motivation. He just does it, but we re not in any way obliged to agree, not even to watch this dull pelicula. Another great actor ,,bites the dust,, in a regretable movie. Shame!

I think everyone didn’t know what to expect from this film, is it going to be like the Jim Carey.,.. oh god no. Is it going to be like the animated short. Well no not like that either. It’s a modernized version of the grinch. And I don’t like it. I LOVE IT. Even if people don’t like illumination, god dang they a good movie. Most of their work is very minipulative. This felt like it had heart and soul. So we know the story so I don’t need to go through that but it does have it news things to …

Interesting, fascinating and captivating film

Wow.
You’ve given each other the perfect male fantasy.
Sex without emotional attachment.

Fascinating. That’s the best description for this film. “Jonathan” is not an easy movie and it excels in monotony. But give this not so action-packed, one location situated film a chance and maybe you’ll discover how unparalleled and brilliant this film is. The starting point is actually dead simple. Those who already experienced the concept of living together, know that this only has a …

“And he did.”

The last movie I saw at LIFF (Leeds International Film) and the final performance from Robert Redford (apparently) - and what a way to end this year festival.

‘The Old Man and The Gun’ is one of most endearing and heartfelt movies about bank robbery. A simple story with miraculous results. By the end, I don't know to root for or against the robbers. Throughout the movie I kept being reminded of a similar heist movie that came out this year called ‘Kings of Thieves’, but …

Halloween (2018)

Mike A - wrote on 11/23/18

David Gordon Green’s sequel to the 1978 classic is an okay film — It doesn’t really succeed as a horror film, but it presents an interesting evolution of Jamie Lee Curtis’ character Laurie Strode. Her confrontations with Michael Myers are some of the best moments of the film — they’re thrilling and effective — but unfortunately they don’t happen so often. It has its good moments, but ultimately it’s a fine film that could have been better.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

I like the part where she falls over.

OK, on a serious note...

‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ is a compelling true story that's both hilarious yet heartbreaking. The biggest giveaway I got when the movie ended - you can find the irony and humor in the darkest of outcomes.

I’m not the biggest fan of Melissa McCarthy, if I have to be honest. I don’t find her funny and ‘Happytime Murders’ left a cold impression on me. Ironically, I wanted some sort of apology after that. Still, nothing …

Widows (2018)

“May a man live well-enough and long-enough, to leave many joyful widows behind him.”

Remember Ocean's 8? Nah, neither do I.

‘Widows’ is an outstanding crime drama from director Steve McQueen. A female driven movie that doesn't glorify itself as such. It's smart and compelling - emotional roller coaster through out. The themes of corruption, politicians, sexism, race relations, privileges, and greed that mirrors society we know. I was hooked from start till finish.

Steve McQueen took …
