Deepwater Horizon - Movie Review

Deepwater Horizon, the movie about the worst environmental disaster in USA history, was surprisingly gripping.

Admittedly, it had a slow built with too many silly family moments. 103 more words

Deepwater Horizon (2016, dir. Peter Berg)

Drama based on the true story of a drilling rig disaster. Another effective Berg/Wahlberg collaboration after Lone Survivor (and the subsequent Patriots’ Day) that tells a true-life tale with an emphasis on ordinary people, camaraderie, and a little patriotism.

(NOT QUITE) MASTERPIECE THEATRE: Revisiting "Soldier"

Here at “The Erratic Narrative” we’re embarking on a new (and, as always, erratic and a little sweary) series of posts, entitled ‘(Not Quite) Masterpiece Theatre’, where we will examine a variety of perhaps forgotten, but certainly underappreciated (or just flat out hated) “almost, but not quite” pieces of cinema across the genres. 1,369 more words

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (USA, 2017)

Directed by: James Gunn. After my lukewarm review of the first one, and after dozens of drawn-out, agonizing, self-shaming superhero movie reviews, it should really come as no surprise that I totally went to see this because although I hate these goddamn movies, and even though they represent everything that’s awful about modern Hollywood, they’re also really fun and mindless and enjoyable, and of all the dumb superhero movies out there, this is the one that takes itself least seriously and has the most fun. 259 more words

Escape from L.A. (1996) [review]

While this does have the usual sequel problems; there are so few, to the point where we have a film which is almost as enjoyable as the original. 447 more words

Film: Bone Tomahawk

A western horror I can handle. But this offering? Meh. I’m going against the critics who raved about this one. Oh the slow tension build they say. 94 more words
