Geostorm

 Geostorm (2017) on IMDb

I thought this was a great movie but it did not get high, only middle ratings, last I checked a 5.2 on IMDb.

I felt the direction and composition was very well done. Camera shake was NOT THERE when it should not have been. It was used when it can effectively be used.

It brought us into another world like movies should do.

The concept is that the US Government and world governments created a main satellite control station in space with a network of satellites enveloping the globe that controlled weather. It’s systems became hijacked as can be expected in all good vs. evil movies, and the thrill of watching the players try to save earth from catastrophic weather systems CAUSED by the satellite weather control systems allowed for a lot of major destruction to occur while they worked feverishly to reboot the system.

A quick note, this movie was over the top at times with unbelievable scenes, yet in comparing this to San Andreas I felt that these were just a stretch into the creative view. In San Andreas so much of the destruction due to a major earthquake was 100% unbelievable because such damage is just impossible, as was the boat breezing through the debris fields effortlessly.

Here we are in space controlling the weather and when the evil doer recodes the system to cause catastropic weather it’s believable because we see cyclones and tidal waves that could happen.

Sure the instant freezing is a bit over the top, yet it’s actually possible if there were to be such a system as the temperature of space is negative 450 degrees below zero.

I call this a must see movie for a family or friends that can enjoy catastrophe movies to watch together and just have fun with it.


The Craft is well crafted

The Craft is a great cult film. It’s about 4 high school girls that explore witch craft and what happens when one becomes too absorbed with it’s power. It was made in the days before camera shake.

Mute

One review stated “If it wasn’t for Netflix, Mute wouldn’t exist”.

My review:

I liked this movie but it did not get a high rating. It’s appearing on Netflix and as seen on an article on Hollywood Reportler that claims the movie might be as bad as Cloverfield Paradox (no comparison in my opinion) the producer says, “if it wasn’t for Netflix, Mute simply wouldn’t  exist”. The movie is also obviously one of dedication to the movie making arts, in the article it also says “Mute is a film defined by its director, who worked for more than a decade”. I am sure this film is not for everyone thus the middle range rating, but what is incredible about what Netflix doing it that it is providing movies for everyone, whereas in the past many films would not have ever been made, and unfortunately, many films never were.
