Solar Impact Alluc (2020)
Release: November 15, 2019
Alluc Solar Impact
Just as seen in The Kite Runner, a tragedy has to occur before responsibility is accepted.
I would not have given this film a glance were it not for the fact that Cynda Williams got star billing. It is definitely for those who are fans only.
In what is probably a common occurrence, she becomes pregnant and her boyfriend/lover/partner Mushond Lee (2001 Maniacs) is reluctant to accept full responsibility and marry her.
He spends his time with his group of four friends, while she is with her group. Some may feel that Cynda's friends are part of the problem, as they are telling her to force the issue, but the male group is just as bad. They may be questioning when he is going to marry, but their behavior suggests that conquests of women is the sole goal in life.
Sure, things may end up in the right way, but not before the issue is forced with a huge tragedy. It was if fate seemed to push one into a right decision.
The one thing that spoiled what was a fair look at the sexes, was the presence of the typical black stereotypical drunk that just went on for too too long.

Mortal Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release: February 28, 2020
This story takes place in "Pussyville." I am not making that up, nor am I touching that line. Similar to Felix The Cat in looks, we have "Master Tom" as the main figure in this story, which has literally no sound nor sound-effects, just title cards, courtesy of "Paramount Magazine" and a few comic-strip balloons
Basically, the story is Master Tom wooing a female. Their "trysting place," as the card puts it, is a garbage can. We also see what happens when "the cat's away," as five mice trash the house. They're funny to watch.
Without saying more, the ending of this cartoon is really unexpected. It literally made my jaw drop.
Overall, this is extremely primitive and dated but so bizarre that you can't take your eyes off it. It was part of the Popeye The Sailor 1933-1938 DVD set. Look for it under the bonus feature, "From The Vault."

Resistance Alluc (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, War
Release: March 27, 2020
When I firast watched this film,I enjoyed it thoroughly. Ironically enough in the advent of John Woo (his american popularity and his imitators) as well as Micheal Bay, Tony Scott, and Jerry Brukhiemer, it is rephreshing to see an action movie, a shoot-out action movie, where the emphasis is on efficiency and control rather than chaos. Unlike the John Woo pilosophy of keeping the guns firing non stop even if they hit nothing, Assassins works on the exact opposite theory of every shot has a purpose and a meaning and no shot is taken wildly even to distract (add on to the fact that in most John Woo movies, and especially Michael Bay movies, the guns are super loud, whereas in Assassins, pretty much every shot thats fired is silenced). I beleive there is only one instance in the film where shots are fired wildly wnd wrecklessly, and that is during the apartment scene where Antonio Banderas' character. Micheal Bein, shoots blindly through a wall at Slyvester Stallone's character, Robert Rath. Other than that, there is not really anytype of panic fire or wild bullet spraying (in fact I dont beleive this film even features automatic rifles of any kind). Strangely enough, this allows for events that move extremly quick: example, the first scene featuring the three title characters in the hotel. We see Antonio Banderas, in the blink of an eye alomst, take out 3 guards, walkinto the room they were guarding and then take out the 4 targets in that room in the same amount of time. In a way, it is very similar to the old Samurai films since their action scenes moved in a similar manner with nothingn then all of a sudden a few quick sword strikes and the conflict is over. That being said, this movie would require a certain type of taste in action movies or is a type of movie you have to be "in the mood" to watch.
sidenote: When I first watched this film, I had no idea it featured the would be superstar Antonio Banderas, nor that it was written by the soon to be Matrix creators. In that sense it is almost a fun movie to watch because it kinda answers the question "what did they do before they were famous?" and now you know.

Peninsula Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Horror, Thriller
Release: August 7, 2020
(warning may contian spoilers)This is a great movie, the animation is good for being from 1987.However I thought that bit with Valculra was too much, all she seemed to do was lose her clothes. There was some nudity in this film. There are two familar characters in this film, Sho and Mikzuki. I thought it was creepy when his two friends got killed right in school they also never really explained how they kidnapped Mizuki.The guver armor is cool but the part with valcura and the doctor who says (have you always had those two tumors on your back?) that was weird I mean isn't that woman a doctor so why would she ask valcura that? There is also guyver #3 in the movie who appears later in another guyer series. Whether this movie and the rest of the saga are connected I don't know. rating 8 out of ten.

Marriage Story Alluc (2019)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Release: December 6, 2019
Alluc Marriage Story
One of the best documentaries i have ever seen. The disecting of nazism and especially Hitlers various obsession of race, purity, strength, the german people and the ideas and architecture behind it all is nothing but brilliant.
So many excellent photos and films and so well "framed" through the music and the narrator that i cant even begin to describe the feeling you will get from seeing this masterpiece!
Just take my word for it - if you are historically interrested into nazism and its background you have to make time for this one here.

Greyhound Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Drama, History, War
Release: July 10, 2020
ased upon the novel "The Good Shepherd" by C S Forester, this is the thrilling story of the leader of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as he faces relentless attack by a Nazi submarine wolf pack. The leader of the convoy's destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first Atlantic crossing. The story focuses on the his command responsibility as he fights the cold, the relentless night, the brutal sea and his deep fatigue as he chases down the attacking submarines in the deadly game of cat and mouse. The exciting story, a thrilling ride-along with the beleaguered captain, so deeply portrays the elements of battle command that for a long period of time the book was used as a text at the US Naval Academy.

The Old Guard Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Release: July 10, 2020
Alluc The Old Guard
A lovely piece of Japanese fluff, that has a more hard-core undertone that develops as we go along.
Not as 'examining' as it could have been, and still kept the tone - however, I stayed up all night watching it. Gotta see what happens next.
I don't particularly care for our hero - she seems to have had not much character development at all - I watch it for the proprietor's story, and a few of the side stories. (Why is it that I'm always more fascinated by the minutiae of the side stories in everything? Why are main characters so very wishy washy in this style of show? It's like they're not even human... just a vehicle to tell everyone else's story.) As a westerner who uses tenugui, there's a lovely scene with some lovely samples of them hanging around. I use the ones taken from yukata bolts, however I collect the 'art' ones.
I'd have been a lot happier if the underwear used for the show was of a higher quality - not the ones that get cut up, of course! It was a real let down to see underwear on the runway that was very so-so. Twee is the word that springs to mind. Surely there's a costumier somewhere who could have made something better just for this show and not too pricey! Maybe we're seeing a really great brand, but it looks like mid-range department store to me. A note of falsity that it's hard to move past.

First Cow Alluc (2020)
Release: July 10, 2020
Alluc First Cow
Although I have been aware of this musical, seemingly forever, I just very recently saw the whole movie on dvd. Unfortunately, while I was acquainted with many of the songs before, I had never really seen it in its entirety before, and I'm not sure why. Also, I've never seen it as a live stage show, be it on Broadway, in London or down the street at the local high school ...
So, then, I can only rate it as a singular movie experience, not comparing it with the Broadway or London stagings. Also, being Jewish and never really studying the life and crucifixion of Jesus, I don't have any strong or pre-conceived spiritual ties to the story.
For me, then, this is a cleverly written and very well-performed musical, that mixes irreverence, time juxtapositions and genuine emotions of sadness and wistfulness. I'm not sure that the movie enhances the great musical; in other words, now that I've seen the movie, I regularly listen to the cd of the musical, and enjoy both about equally. For me, Carl Anderson, as Judas, is the standout, but Ted Neeley does bring an angelic quality to the title character. all of the other supporting roles, including Yvonne Elliman, are done well.
I rate it 8/10 for its excellent music, good staging and for what seems like a faithful film-ization of the original..worth watching for sure!

Genre: Drama, Horror
Release: July 10, 2020
When elderly mother Edna inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam rush to their family's decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay's concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she's been clashes with Sam's unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back. As Edna's behavior turns increasingly volatile, both begin to sense that an insidious presence in the house might be taking control of her. With RELIC, first-time writer/director Natalie Erika James crafts an unforgettable new spin on the haunted-house movie.

Hamilton Alluc (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Musical
Release: July 03, 2020
When i saw Beowulf in the TV listings, i immediately hoped that a decent drama had been created, based on the historical poem, and produced to a high standard. I was quickly disappointed.
Although the story is very loosely based on the old English poem about a Scandinavian monster terrorising a Danish King, that is pretty much where the similarity ends. You are very quickly introduced to CGI trolls working a in human village in place of oxen, turning a wheel. It is at this point you realise the slant is farther toward the fantasy realm drama than the historical realm drama.
In terms of the characters, they are rather cliché and lacked depth. The sets are OK in parts and in others look like cheap fantasy set pieces. They also seem inconsistent as great halls with cast relief gates in bronze are hardly likely to be the product of a 20 person village. The grandeur of some of the buildings is far out of whack with the population size and any semblance of industry or agriculture.
Casting, and cast diversity - within minutes you are introduced to characters that are obviously Indian Asian, and also Black (African). There are quite a few characters with diverse ethnic origins. Again, if you were expecting something akin to the fantastic 'Vikings' or even the Stars productions like 'Spartacus' forget it.There is no attempt at historical, cultural, or geographic realism as a backdrop for this show.
A Black male actor appears in Arabic dress who speaks with a solid south England accent. I totally get diversity in a modern TV show about modern society, or even in culturally mixed locations like Rome, but in something apparently 'based' on an AngloScandinavian tale/poem it hardly fits. This reality works in both directions, if i were watching a show about the rise of a chieftain in Africa in 300BC, then i'd hardly expect to see the cast featuring heavily with Chinese and white Australian sounding actors (it just drags you out of the show). It's another element that constantly reminds the viewer that there is no historic setting for this and it is little more than a uber low budget Lord of The Rings rip off merged merged with the title Beowulf.
If this show were targeting adults, one has to ask, who watches stuff like this? The script, acting, story seems quite immature. It does feel more like a teen show, however it is on UK TV in a late evening slot. For this reason i suspect it won't pick up the viewers, and won't make a second season.

The Outpost Alluc (2020)
Genre: Drama, History, War
Release: July 03, 2020
Alluc The Outpost
Can take you a long ways!
What happens when giant space ships land in your city, the ships themselves forming a great dividing wall that traps you, your family - everyone in the immediate environment captive in what once was their city, neighborhood, home? What do they want? What do we do? A lot of questions have been asked, without many answers, but this is part of the entertainment following this well made show.
Colony really is surprising on every level, but in today's era of amazing television this is an easy show to overlook. In a way, this problem is self inflicted. Here we have a show with an extra-terrestrial component - that through a season and a half, has had very few big budget pay offs with regard to the off world oppressors. However...
If you're patient, this actually becomes a good thing. For reasons not yet explained the aliens remain puppet masters using sophisticated drones and recruited people to do their work, which is again, very mysterious in terms of objective. Colony provides very little information with regard to the invasion or whatever type of occupation humanity now faces. Which puts the viewer right into the position of the mystified characters, who are not only trying to put the pieces together, but also learning to survive the new reality.
The people recruited to do the alien's dirty work immediately fall into various levels of collaboration against their own kind. All collaborators work for what is vaguely labeled, "the authority" who are the alien overseers. People are divided, must take sides, choose the greater good - and stand with or against friends, family, co-workers and complete strangers. The potential dynamics of this new reality has been well developed with all the main characters.
And who are they? A dedicated cop, his business running wife (bar owner) and their three children. There are also a handful of periphery characters - but all connect in some way to this core family. The viewers share each of their difficult journeys, and watch their transformation as a result.
The content is timely, too, but I would argue that Colony borrows much more of its content from historical context, such as the French resistance of Nazi occupation. There is a grit and reality to this show that keeps everything grounded and believable - which truly is remarkable, given the premise.
Colony can be surprisingly brutal, but I never feel it is doing so in a gratuitous fashion. The cast have to make difficult choices, and the main character (Dad, Will Bowman, Josh Holloway) is a man of action. I really appreciate the way this show presents the destructive potential of firearms, and really coaching up the actors on how to handle weapons. The last episode I watched included a brutal home invasion that I thought was really well presented.
There are going to be a lot of unappreciated's, underrated's, under-watched type comments handed out to Colony, but I'd just call it a really good TV show. It has the added interest of science fiction elements, but they are utilized in a completely unique way to keep the show about people.
It also helps that Colony is well presented - good technical qualities, occasional special effects where needed, really good audio - and a nice look (that has to do with lighting, set design and again - camera work). The casting is near perfect and watching the characters evolve with the story has been one of the best treats.
Colony is a great example why every show with potential deserves a second season.
Incredible potential fulfilled, and one of my current favorite TV shows. 9 out of 10

Luce Alluc (2019)
Release: August 2, 2019
IN A NUTSHELL:
This psychological thriller is a movie that begs you to talk about it afterward. The cast is brilliant and the story is provocative, skillfully addressing some fascinating themes and questions about society and our identities. I can often tell what's going to happen in a movie, but this drama kept me guessing the entire time. It challenges you to think and look at what's happening from several different perspectives. Julius Onah directed the movie that is based on the play by J. C. Lee.
TIPS FOR PARENTS:
Some profanity, including F-bombs. Talk of racism, sexism, tokenism, privilege, assimilation Crude language and sexual references One of the high school girls talks about a terrible game that was played at a party. I sure hope that game doesn't really exist, but I fear that it does. You see a topless woman in a short shower scene and a completely naked woman in a long scene. Two times, you see and hear blurred sex scenes. Talk of assault. Vandalism
"We should speak our mind, no matter the cost." - Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) Violation of privacy Limits Family Accusations Truth vs. rumor vs. what we think we know Being put in a box Identity Trust Parenting choices
THINGS I LIKED:
The cast was absolutely fantastic and includes Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer and Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts. Also included are Tim Roth, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Deshaun Meeks, and Andrea Bang. I imagine we're going to see some Oscar nominations arriving in a few months that congratulate these performances. Kelvin Harrison Jr. is really great and has a bright future in film. Fans of Lie to Me: Season 1 will enjoy seeing Tim Roth. I loved the first season of that show and then it started going south. Luce means "light". Luce said that his adoptive American parents named him that because he had some light in him even though he had a dark past in war-torn Eritrea.
THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE:
I hated that pounding drum sound effect that went on and on in several scenes. This is a serious drama with no humor. We didn't have to see all that flesh. I much prefer scenes that are subtle and imply certain actions rather than showing you everything. It definitely takes its time to unwind the story. Some people might be confused and wonder what happened.

Alluc Impractical Jokers: The Movie
Insane and highly imaginative remake of 1960's children's illustrations. This is a great example of the current standard in graphic animation where bold techniques translate into fantastic visual artworks.
Two children discover a godlike idol in a rabbit after slaughtering it for its fur. This opens a world carnage and computer game style obsession where the children's desire to control the golden idol takes them over.
Previous Run Wrake animations have been even more off the wall revealing the unusual talents of this madcap genius.
Rabbit is a far more rounded work where the narrative is almost too defined leaving the ending a bit too moralistic.

Don't let the negative reviews on this show persuade you not to watch it. May of the people that have watched Shadowhunters and disliked it didn't do their research before the show came out. The directors and creators said many times you had to come to this show with an opened mind. The show is slightly different than the books because they creators wanted it to be fresh and for the book readers not to know everything that is going to happen. I'd recommend reading the first book before you watch the show to freshen your mind or while you watch the show because there are many things that you don't notice in the book that they bring up in the show. I's better for you to see what the show is about yourself then to see it through what others tell you. Stay opened minded, distance yourself from the books, and don't be quick to judge from the first episode, the show gets better after each episode.

The Blackout Alluc (2019)
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Release: November 21, 2019
Alluc The Blackout
This absolutely cheap, shot-on-video outing has little enough enterprise to merit a non-bottom rating, but there's the occasional directorial flourish to warrant a slightly higher score. Director Patrick Mathews knows for sure that he's making a turkey, so he attempts to throw in as much referencing and low brow humour as possible, as well as a couple of stylistic touches – I love the 'room spinning out of control' camera shot which betrays the leading character's deepening insanity.
Although the title and plot description make this sound like a gross movie, all we see are a few shots of the lead sitting around picking his nose – that's it. The rest of the story sees him transformed into a girl (no, no special effects or nudity here – for an exploitation film this sure is low on exploitation values) and then bumping off a series of high school teenagers as he gradually loses his sanity.
Brief gore comes from shots of our killer eating flesh from the girls he's killed, and the best special effects are when a girl's fingers are chopped off and a transvestite prostitute has his throat slit. Otherwise things are pretty boring, with bad acting all around – although I can't help but kind of liking the main guy – and the only person coming across as half professional is the detective. Add to this a lame twist ending, completely inept music, and a total lack of plot focus and pacing, and you have one bizarre, boring film.

Alluc The Invisible Man
Swiss Conspiracy opens with a screen of text, explaining that Switzerland has always been the perfect place for people to stash their money, acquired legally or not. How ironic it is that as I am watching this in July 2008, the State Department in Washington DC is formally requesting that the larger Swiss banks provide banking records to the IRS and to the Dept of Homeland Security here in the US. Swiss Conspiracy stars David Janssen, probably best known as the "Fugitive" and "Harry O" and Ray Milland ( Lost Weekend, and all those black & white movies from the 1930s and 1940s). Costars John Ireland, Elke Sommer, John Saxon, and a whole mess of bit parts. Janssen, as David Christopher, must figure out to keep the bank's clients from having their names and secrets exposed by a blackmailer. Has some cussing and violence, including a shoot- em- up right from the beginning scenes. No real big surprises in this one, but its an interesting What-If ... especially now that the U.S. is cracking down on its citizens moving money overseas. An hour and a half well spent. and some interesting photography of Switzerland to boot. Could have done without the silly "Sloop John B" euro re-make, which plays while Christopher is waiting for Denise to get dressed.

Alluc Brahms: The Boy II
Tom Trimble (Dennis Dugan) is an oddball scientist for NASA. Very clever but somewhat clumsy, he builds a robot named Hermes who looks just like him. Its NASA's wish to send Hermes on an experimental flight where, if all goes as planned, the rocket will travel faster than light and go back to the days of Camelot. However, as Tom is readying Hermes for the journey, the rocket blasts off and both of them go back in time. Once there, a pretty maid name Alisande takes Tom to see King Arthur while Hermes stays with the ship. Mordred (Jim Dale) takes an instant disliking to Tom but the young scientist captivates the King with tales of the history of the world, including his own time period. However, after a long listen, the King sends him to the dungeon anyway. It'll be up to Hermes to rescue Tom and change the King's view in their favor. In addition, can Alisande truly prefer Hermes to Tom himself? This funny take on Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is a pleasure to watch. Dugan is quite a charming and kooky performer and rest of the cast is great. Kids and families will love the re- created Camelot's scenery and costumes as well as the new gadgets Tom brings with him. No, its not the greatest thing since sliced bread but it is bound to bring smiles to young and old faces!

Onward Alluc (2020)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Release: March 04, 2020
This hilariously inept Italian movie was obviously, uh, inspired by the German art film "Christiane F", which was about a young teenage junkie and prostitute. If you like "Christiane F.", you will probably hate this though because it's almost an unintentional parody of that film. On the other hand, if you find the German film rather heavy-handed, moralistic, and depressing, this is frankly a lot more fun.
"Hanna D." is played by Ana-Gisel Glass, who looks too old to be a young teenager (she was actually about twenty) and too healthy to be a junkie. This is no doubt for the best, however, since she spends a lot of her screen-time butt-naked and/or engaged in various sexual situations. Glass surprisingly went on to a long career in Germany, but her only previous credit was as one of David Hamilton's barely-legal model/actresses in "First Desires". 'Hannah's" booze-soaked mother meanwhile is played by veteran European sex star Karin Schubert (who ironically later dove into hardcore porn to support her own drug habit). Schubert, and the woman who dubbed her here, should have shared some kind of special alternate Academy Award for this hilariously overwrought performance. There's plenty of sordid stuff here--prostitution, anal drug smuggling, murders, gratuitous sex, gratuitous showers, topless dancing, prison scenes, shooting up, ad infinitum--but it's hard to take any of this seriously. From the opening scene featuring a school-uniform-seduction-on-a-commuter-train (which I imagine went over like gang-busters in Japan), to a ridiculous scene where "Hanna" gets in a fight with her pimp and then goes into the next room and takes all her clothes off for no apparent reason, to the laughable finale containing the most unconvincing drowning in the history of the dramatic arts, it's 90 minutes of sheer cinematic ineptitude.
The incredibly generic plot has "Hanna" torn between her brutal pimp and a nice guy she falls in love with. Although credited to "Axel Berg" this was actually written and directed by the infamous Italian Rino DiSivestri, who gave the world "Werewolf Woman" and "Deported Women of the SS". I actually liked his first film "Woman in Cellblock 7", however, and I understand he actually received letters of thanks from real prostitutes for his movie "Red Light Girls". I can't imagine ANYBODY recognizing themselves in this movie though even if it was allegedly inspired by "real events". But what a hoot!
