CHILD 44 (2015): Tom Hardy Is All The Reason You Need

The Movie My Life

Child 44 (2015), Tom Hardy Child 44 (2015), Tom Hardy

Here is the reason I was yelping with uncontrollable joy today.

There’s been some talk about the authenticity of the Russian accents…

It’s all business of course, the need to get the film to as wide an audience as possible. I’m just happy to watch the very talented cast including Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Vincent Cassel, Noomi Rapace, etc. and fully understanding what they’re saying without difficulty.

Such an interesting story. I can’t wait to see it unfold.

Happy Child 44 🙂

SUICIDE SQUAD (2016): New Trailer With Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith…

The Movie My Life

Suicide Squad (2016), Margot Robbie Suicide Squad (2016), Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Ben Affleck, Will Smith Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman Viola Davis, Common, Jay Hernandez and a few more are the stars of Suicide Squad.

From the trailer it looks like Margot Robbie’s part is quite a sizableness. I hope so because she looks seriously badass and I like it.

With David Ayer, the man who brought us Training Day (2001) and Fury (2014) as Director, there’s no way this isn’t a sure thing. I guess we’ll find out in just over 12 months.

I can’t help but only see Heath Ledger when I looked at Jared Leto’s Joker. Only time will tell of course, 12 months of time.

Happy Suicide Squad 🙂

LISTEN TO ME MARLON (2015): Excellent Trailer For Marlon Brando Documentary

The Movie My Life

Listen To Me Marlon (2015), Marlon Brando Listen To Me Marlon (2015), Marlon Brando

Stevan Riley has directed a documentary about Marlon Brando and the trailer looks fantastic.

Amongst other great roles, Brando is the man responsible for doing an exceptional job of bringing Author Mario Puzo’s character of The Godfather to life in the Francis Ford Coppola directed 1972 classic of the same name.

I know that Listen To Me Marlon is going to be great, especially for lovers of documentary film / biographies, fans of very talented Actors, those curious about the human condition and of course, the brilliance of Marlon Brando himself.

I really can’t wait to see it and congratulations to the person responsible for this trailer, for it is truly excellent!

Happy Listen To Me Marlon 🙂

I’M WATCHING OVER YOU

The Creeper By Tania Carver

Suzanne Perry is having a vivid nightmare. Someone is in her bedroom, touching her, and she can’t move a muscle. She wakes, relieved to put the nightmare behind her, but when she opens the curtains, she sees a polaroid stuck to the window. A photo of her sleeping self, taken during the night. And underneath the words: ‘I’m watching over you’. Her nightmare isn’t over. In fact, it’s just beginning. Detective Inspector Phil Brennan of the Major Incident Squad has a killer to hunt. A killer who stalks young women, insinuates himself into their lives, and ultimately tortures and murders them in the most shocking way possible. But the more Phil investigates, the more he delves into the twisted psychology of his quarry, Phil realises that it isn’t just a serial killer he’s hunting but something or someone infinitely more calculating and horrific. And much closer to home than he realised.

THE UNSOLVED HOMICIDES

The Last Place By Laura Lippmann

Five lives in the Baltimore area have been brutally destroyed over the past six years five unsolved homicides, seemingly unconnected except for the suspicion that each death was the result of domestic violence. In hot legal water  and court-ordered therapy  Tess Monaghan accepts an assignment with a local nonprofit organization, agreeing to review police documents on each case for inconsistencies and investigative blunders. But curiosity is leading the disgraced P.I. off the paper trail as she follows scant leads and intuitions into the most remote corners of Maryland  where a psychopath can hide as easily in the fabric of a tiny fishing community as in the alleys and shadows of Charm City. Because a single common thread to five senseless murders is beginning to emerge with shocking clarity to tie the loose ends together into one bloody knot  and the link is Tess Monaghan herself.

DEADLY DETERMINATION

The First Cut By Peter Robinson

On a balmy June night, Kirsten, a young university student, is strolling home through a silent moonlit park when she is viciously attacked. When she awakes in the hospital, she has no recollection of that brutal night. But then slowly, painfully, details reveal themselves  dreams of two figures, one white and one black, hovering over her; snatches of a strange and haunting song; the unfamiliar texture of a rough and deadly hand. In another part of the country, Martha Browne arrives in a Yorkshire seaside town, posing as an author doing research for a book. But her research is of a particularly macabre variety. Who is she hunting with such deadly determination? And why?
