In a world where so many films and TV shows are rehashed and recycled, this is a breath of dread-filled fresh air. Compared to Hollywood, foreign films often are. And this one absolutely delivers again. They don't just make good bacon, them Danes. The whole film is focused on one Police dispatcher who takes a call from a woman who has been kidnapped. That may sound simple but it's just done so well. And at a runtime of only 80 minutes, it's easy for you to fit in.
We've all had bad days at work but fucking hell. Picture the scene: you're at the bottom of the North Sea tethered to a diving bell which is tethered to your ship which is over 2,000 feet above you at the surface just casually trying to do your job. Then, for some reason, which you're totally unaware of as it's happening, the ship begins to drift, meaning your diving bell is dragged off course, as are you. Bad, right? Well, it gets worse. Imagine then that your tether, the only thing connecting you to the surface, gets caught on something and snaps... Yeah, exactly. The fuck do you do? Well, watch this to find out.
Freddie Mercury was fucking great, the story of his life is fucking great and Rami Malak playing Freddie Mercury is pretty fucking great too so, as you'd imagine, this film is pretty fucking great as well. Whether you're a Queen fan or not, this is worth a watch. The world is absolutely a worse place for not having Freddie Mercury in it.
A group of ex-military hardmen get together to go into the jungle to rob a drug lord of all his fortune. It's a decent watch but nothing I haven't seen a handful of times before. I'm delighted it was on Netflix though because it meant I didn't have to spend £10 on going to see it at the cinema. Although, had it been on the cinema, I probably wouldn't have bothered.
This highlights another case of the persecution of black people, this time during the Detroit riots in 1967. Basically a bunch of arsehole racists use their badges to try to strongarm a bunch of black people into admitting they were doing wrong. It's a real-life representation of the abuse of power and the power of obedience, something psychologist Stanley Milgram was studying in lab experiments around the same time. Sadly, shit like this is still going on, five decades later and, even worse, many racist arsehole cops are still getting away with it.
A lot of this sounds like bullshit to me but there's no harm in thinking positively, practicing mindfulness or doing yoga. They can all make you feel better and prepare you better for your journey but I'm not so sure they're going to cure your cancer.
Based on true events, this tells the story of a little Indian boy who, whilst out on the rob with his brother, falls asleep on a train and wakes up to find he's miles away from home in Calcutta. Not being able to speak Bengali and having no money means he can't get home. He ends up in care and ultimately gets adopted by an Austrailian family with a mum that looks like Nicole Kidman and a dad that looks like Shane Warne 10 years into a meth binge. It's entertaining enough and might make you cry, if - you know - you're a little bitch.
If I start watching a film trailer and the first 20 seconds or so piques my interest, I turn it off. I avoid spoiling films for myself as much as possible. Trailers, reviews and the like are ignored regularly. The problem with that is, sometimes a film doesn't turn out to be about what you thought it would be. And that's the case with this. It wasn't at all what I expected. And not in a good way. Plus, the girl in it so blatantly has a Kiwi accent when she's meant to be American and it wound me the fuck up throughout.
This is the real life stranger-than-fiction story about three triplets who were split up at birth and how they happened to meet as 19 year-olds and what became of their relationships and their lives from that point forward. I'm a twin, born seven minutes after my sister. When people find out I have a twin sister, they often ask me, "Are you identical?" It takes all my restraint to not scream in their faces, "AM I IDENTICAL? TO MY TWIN SISTER?! YOU FUCKING IDIOT!"
This guy is the maddest cunt that's ever lived. How he can think this is even achievable, let alone actually fucking achieve it, is just unbelieable. It's absolutely crazy that he's so good at climbing when he's got his massive fucking balls to lug around everywhere. I do feel sorry for his loved ones though. And someone needs to teach him how to use cutlery; he spends far too much of this eating straight out of pans with fucking massive kitchen utensils.
