Widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, this mob drama, based on Mario Puzo's novel of the same name, focuses on the powerful Italian-American crime family of Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando). When the don's youngest son, Michael (Al Pacino), reluctantly joins the Mafia, he becomes involved in the inevitable cycle of violence and betrayal. Although Michael tries to maintain a normal relationship with his wife, Kay (Diane Keaton), he is drawn deeper into the family business.

It appears as if we may be privy to what Tarantino’s final film will be, a Star Trek Movie.
While showcasing his penultimate film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” at Cannes, he revealed he has penned an R rated Star Trek script, and said, in reference to the potential of directing the film, “it’s a very big possibility.” _
There has been some concerned posed to this potentiality, citing Star Trek’s history of being family friendly clashing with Tarantino’s explicit style. In my opinion this is a silly concern due to the success of films like “Deadpool,” and “Logan,” and due to the fact that Tarantino’s name is enough to make the potential film a box office hit.
In my own humble opinion, I’m not not sure if I would be on board with Tarantino closing out his legendary filmmaking career with a Star Trek movie. I wouldn’t be completely opposed to it because of the fact that it’s Tarantino and I am not prone to looking gift horses in the mouth when it comes to his work, but however, I would prefer for him to end an epic, completely original note.
In a dream scenario, I would kill for Tarantino to tackle the horror genre before he hangs it up, but as this isn’t likely, I’ll take whatever I get.
What are your thoughts the potential Tarantino Star Trek film?

Paprika uses beautiful and astonishing animation and truly unique imagination to bring us an adventurous story into the dreams of its characters. It is full of clever details. With outstanding surreal visuals and dream sequences, very likable characters and a really original plot and concept. The distortion of reality, for example, is expressed by tricky POV shots or changes in the animation rhythm. Paprika is colorful, upbeat and full of cultural references. It would be stronger with a tightened plot, but its originality largely offsets its flaws. It is more action packed than "Inception" and more abstract than "Mulholland Drive", this eye-pleasing modern classic also offers witty dialogues, grains of wisdom and psychological foreplay between its characters. Dream levels are used as a backdrops of different genres with nods to Kubrick, Disney, James Bond and monster movies - which is appropriately entwined with allegory of love for the film that closes this story.

Director Sidney Lumet had the actors all stay in the same room for several hours on end and do their lines over and over without filming them. This was to give them a real taste of what it would be like to be cooped up in a room with the same people.

He also had to learn to shoot a musket, build a fire, speak two Native American languages (Pawnee and Arikara), and study with a doctor who specializes in ancient healing techniques. DiCaprio calls it the hardest performance of his career.

"The horror movies of Blumhouse Productions are somewhat of a mixed bag, ranging from the unique and atmospherically creepy Get Out to the completely horrendous Truth or Dare. The newest addition to their horror catalogue, writer/director Tate Taylor’s teen focused stalker film Ma lands somewhere in the middle. The lack of complexity in the narrative of Ma creates a predictable series of events that is scarce in suspense. The generic story partnered with Taylor’s uninspired directing leaves a film that feels as if it’s just going through the motions, with each scene being competently created yet holding little weight. However, it’s the added dimension of Octavia Spencer as the lead antagonist that keeps Ma from falling into insignificance, giving a lively and entertaining performance that helps elevate scenes that would otherwise be mediocre."

Lee finished his third drink and turned to Allerton. “I figure to go down to South America soon,” he said. “Why don’t you come along? Won’t cost you a cent.” “Perhaps not in money.” “I’m not a difficult man to get along with,” said Lee. “We could reach a satisfactory arrangement. What you got to lose?” “Independence.” “So who’s going to cut in on your independence? You can lay all the women in South America if you want to. All I ask is be nice to Papa, say twice a week.

When love is not accepted as love all that is left is compromise. Oliver compromises by getting married, Elio compromises by accepting his pain, and Lee compromises by paying Allerton (who he knows doesn't and will never love him) to sleep with him.
My friend who I spoke about yesterday compromised by joining a shrine and becoming a monk for two years which he had to leave eventually, making another compromise, since he was the only earning member in his family. On the other hand my cousin brother (with whom I watched this film) refused to compromise and thus ended up becoming the most hated member in our family. He is hardly ever invited to family parties and when he is invited nobody speaks to him.
I still remember the day I watched this film. I came out of the theatre and the first thing I saw was the Harbour Bridge shining in all its glory. It was passed 10:30 at night I think and as it's typical of Sydney, everything was closed. There were a countable number of people apart from us taking photos or just talking. For me however, in that moment, the Harbour Bridge became the symbol of Pride. Standing tall and glittering, afraid of nothing and no one in all its majesty and grandeur. Fearless and well of course, Proud.

I had a lot of hope going into CONSTANTINE. I have never read the original "hellblazer" graphic novel, but the story is quite intriguing and has a lot of potential to be great; action packed theological thriller cross horror with a star studded cast. Sounds great right?
In actuality, however, the film's successes are not enough to save it from being marginally better than mediocre. Not terrible, just not fantastic. The kind of film you'll forget almost immediately after watching it.
Credit where credit is due, the cinematography is consistently very good, with some stunning shots and half decent special effects. Visually it's actually pretty impressive, and the soundtrack lines up nicely, giving the film a pretty polished finish.
This clashes with a confusing narrative, pacing issues, clunky dialogue and some tepid performances. I think Keanu can be fantastic in the right role, but this wasn't it. His portrayal of Constantine is apathetic to the point that it's nearly impossible to be invested in his character. For me the standout was Djimmon Hounsou as 'Midnite'. In conclusion, I'd say this is ripe for a remake. There's potential and even quite a few positive things about this adaptation, it just doesn't quite gel together.

The original screenplay by Charlie Kaufman had the 'Another Man' as a character who would help Craig reach the 7 1/2th Floor, however in the film, that little but rather interesting part was given to Octavia Spencer. She was later credited as the 'Woman in the Elevator.'
Craig. in sport coat and tie, studies the business listingsboard. He finds LesterCorp, and sees that it is located onfloor 7 1/2. Craig presses the elevator button and waits. Another man comes and waits next to him. The doors open, and Craig and the other man get in. The other man presses "9." Craig studies the buttons. There is no "7 1/2."
MAN #1: Seven and a half, right?
CRAIG: Uh. yeah.
MAN #1: I'll take you through it.
The man picks up a crowbar leaning in the corner. He watches the floor numbers light up in succession. After "7" and before"8", the man hits the emergency stop button. The elevator slams to a halt. The man pries open the doors with thecrowbar. Revealed is a standard office building hallway,except that from floor to ceiling it is only about four feethigh. Everything is scaled down accordingly. The number onthe wall across from the elevator is 7 1/2.
MAN #1: Seven and a half.
CRAIG: Thank you.
Craig climbs out onto the 7 1/2 floor.

Always Be My Maybe is another solid romantic comedy from Netflix due to great chemistry between its two leads. Ali Wong and Randall Park have great on screen chemistry, they make a great rom-com couple and they are both very funny. The script was a little cheesy at times and delivers a very generic rom-com structure that does not give them tons of room to experiment with. However, for his small role, Keanu Reeves absolutely steals the movie! He is hysterical playing an exaggerated version of himself and it makes for the best scenes of the movie. Thank you Netflix for giving us this incredible Keanu performance. As I said, the film follows the generic rom-com structure which creates a predicatable watch, but that won’t bother rom-com fans as you watch for the love and laughs, not the story. The laughs were good, but there were definitely some that didn’t land and some that should not have been as funny without Wong and Park delivering them. Overall, Always Be My Maybe is a fun romantic comedy that you can stream from home on Netflix that owes its success to its two leads and an outrageous funny Keanu Reeves. 7.5/10
