Son of Fury
Five U.S. soldiers and their Sherman tank take on a bunch of Nazis near the end of WWII. Good cast, but the script could've used more punch. Predictable, but worth at least a watch, if you like the action genre.
A Little Babadook Will Do Ya
Essie Davis, who stars in "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" since 2012, does an excellent job playing the terrified, single-mother whose only child is obsessed with a child's book that was written in Hell (or at least, possibly, published thereabouts). Suggesting it gets watched not only, but maybe with a crowd. How many friends can fit around your home video system? The more, the scarier.... I mean merrier!
Major Force
Family that needs desperately to spend some quality time together with workaholic dad, escapes to the mountains for a ski vacation. Freak act of nature turns a special moment into a eye-opening revelation for mom and the kids. A dark comedy that hits home. Has one of the best endings I've seen all year. Worth the subtitles.
Victor Mature, Weep For Me
Released in 1948, this film today is considered a Film-Noir classic. Mature plays a Vitalis-wearing homicide detective, who was raised on them mean streets. His nemesis is his former street-running-buddy, actor Richard Conte, who is the poster-boy for everything despicable. Even Conte's mama can only weep and pray for his soul and she doesn't put much effort in that. Conte's on the run looking to reunite with his soul-mate, who may or may not be glad when they find each other in the end. Gritty and shot in black and white, back in the day when they knew how to do that so successfully.
GoldenEye in the Beholder
Ryan Reynolds has come a very long way since he starred in "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" back in 1998-2001. In this film (based on a true story) he holds his own in all his scenes with Oscar winner Helen Mirren.
Mirren portrays Maria Altman, whose family's artwork was pilfered by the Nazis during WWII and blatantly hangs in an Austrian museum. She engages young lawyer, Reynolds, to help fight for justice as they take on an entire nation.
