Let Him Go Alluc (2020)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller

Alluc Let Him Go
A retired sheriff and his wife, grieving over the death of their son, set out to find their only grandson.

Alluc The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two
John Wayne as the weathered, weary gunslinger determined to give his mother a better legacy; Dean Martin as the lovable, harmless con artist; Earl Holliman as the wild west version of the middle child; Michael Anderson, Jr. as the baby whose full of p**s, vinegar and gunfighter worship and tired of living by everyone's rules. Watching these four "express their opinions" is enough to make anyone want front row seats to the next reunion.
James Gregory as Hastings, the new man determined to have the town in his pocket; Dennis Hopper as his son; George Kennedy as the hired gun who really, really enjoys his work. Martha Hyer as the mother's friend who's tired of the violence. All wonderfully written characters and fleshed out believably.
While I do agree that this movie has a varied pace that drags at times and the music is distractingly close to "The Magnificent Seven" I still see the story of four sons who never realized the value of their own mother until her death.
The opening scene at the railroad depot sets the underlying tension and up until the cattle drive, all the supporting characters are walking on eggshells. Whether the townsfolk refuse to speak of the father's death or they berate the sons for their treatment of, or lack of, their mother, the sons receive no breaks throughout the film.
Regardless of the music, the direction and writing are at times both sufficient and excellent. With the town's protection of the deceased mother and scornfull arguments to the sons, as well as the relationships of the brothers themselves, this entire story is fleshed out no better than our own actual lives. Since when do brothers need an excuse to wrestle? Also, who would you rather spend ten years away from if not your family?
All told, the movie and story reflects the family dynamic and its affect on its surrounding, how the family extends to include neighbors as well. Basically, I'm glad I bought it.

Boss Level Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Alluc Boss Level
I like watch romance movies sometimes and when I saw the trailer to this, it looked decent to the point I wanted to check it out. It's basically a Asian drama compact into a movie, with a cliché drama stuff in it with two guys falling for one girl kinda scenario. I thought the beginning started out pretty well, until it started to go in a route that has been done before just too many times and has been done better. There are tear jerking moments in this and will lead girls and maybe some guys to almost cry while watching it, mainly cause of the emotion that is poured out in some scenes. This movie is kinda like the Japanese version of "The Notebook" although it was adapted into a movie from a Japanese novel or manga. The story is basically about a boy who is dying very quickly and won't have a chance to reach the age of 20, but there is a girl who is deeply in love with him and her father is a doctor. Soon another guy is put into the equation who falls for the same girl and so on. It's decent romantic/drama and is a good date movie as well.

Fatman Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Thriller
Release: November 17, 2020
This is far better than some make out and certainly more worthy of attention than it's low average score would suggest. However appropriate the title, I guess it does give the impression that there may be more blood and guts than there is and some may be disappointed in that respect. The direction is certainly uneven and the acting perhaps more so and maybe there could have been less driving about in the dark but I still enjoyed it. There are some standout scenes including two excellent lift sequences and the early scenes down the cave are pretty grim. I thought the crazy DJ was going to irritate but in the end I found his antics quite endearing, especially as we (and he) are anticipating the inevitable. Admittedly the film slows now and again but never for long and the great ending is worth the wait.

Alluc Words on Bathroom Walls
There's a video on youtube called "First Look: Angel From Hell on CBS" that has most of the story and the better jokes and is 5 minutes long. Having seen that before watching the full episode, I would say A) I might have liked this better if I hadn't already heard the best jokes, and B) this might work better as a 5-minute-episodes web series.
The first episode is generally cute, with a very unangelic Lynch claiming to be a guardian angel. It's one of those shows where they don't want to say she is or isn't, which is cute but seems to have less potential here than in Wilfred (U.S. version), which handled that "is it real" thing so beautifully.
One issue I have with this series is that Maggie Lawson really doesn't seem to need a guardian angel. Her life doesn't seem all that bad, certainly not George Bailey bad. This inclines me to think that Lynch is not an angel, in which case she's a very skillful and disturbing stalker and why isn't Maggie calling the police?
Still, if your favorite thing about Glee was Lynch, you'll probably like this show. While I find her generally amusing, I was never as big a fan of her as a lot of people, so for me the show just isn't worth pursuing.

The Nest Alluc (2020)
Release: September 18, 2020
Alluc The Nest
Nice French Horror effort. I don't think this is just a French Slasher flick. The movie has a simple plot, as many American Slashers from the 80's but the truth is that the plot is very well developed and even has scenes that you don't expect and twist ending.
The characters are filled with clichés but not as dumb as in many American Slashers. I'd say that most of the characters are likable. The "villians" are also pretty good. The acting is good overall but this movie asks for little talent.
The gore is very good actually. I was impressed by some gruesome death scenes and excellent make-up gore. The direction is clever and fast paced. The movie is visually stunning because it has some really great shinny settings and some dark, macabre settings. Nice job.
"Deep In The Woods" starts slow but then gains strenght and ends pretty good. This is not a typical Slasher because there is more plot and character development than you expect. There are some creepy scenes and that's enough for making a good Horror movie. Give it a try, it's not a French Slasher that rips-off American Slashers.

John Goodman stars as the title monarch in this royal comedy.
Ralph is a Las Vegas lounge singer badly in the need for some
moolah when a group of British councilmen approach him one night
and bear him the news that Ralph is the new king of England
after the whole royal family has been wiped out in a freak
accident! Reluctantly, Ralph takes the job. At first, he seems
like a fish out of water, the fact being that he is an American
first of all, and that he is also a total slob! Being king might
not be so good after all.
This movie is funny because Goodman does a nice job being a
lovable slob trying his best to be the royal figurehead of the

Vanguard Alluc (2020)
Release: September 30, 2020
Giving one star to this movie is like over over over-estimating this piece of s**t. The worst movie i have ever seen in my life. Why? Why? Why?
All the characters are like horribly terrible copies of Hollywood chick-flicks. Even Chetan Bhagat can write a better story than this. Watching Katrina is not as painful as watching each and every characters here. Songs are painful to ears. Sheer torture!
Since the lead character is a woman don't fool yourself in thinking it has any message to give in that front.
Ultimately its all about finding yourself by writing some crappy book and find the love of your life. One sick movie (?) it is.

The quality of film that can only be delivered by Billy Bob Thorton. Along with Sling Blade, Levity and Monsterball I was immersed into the storyline, the actors and music of this fine, thoughtful and moving film.
I appreciate these films of substance, Thorton's pathway's to redemption rather than some of the later more commercial films and this one delivers to the max.
The soundtrack of rich folk music adds to an already exceptional presentation.
Can't wait for another film like this of his to come out!

Genre: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy

Alluc Come Away
There is so much to say about this terrible movie.I could write a review longer than the script but it's not worth my time. The trailer says "From The Depths Of Hell It Came,To Hold All Men Prisoner and Every Woman Slave!!" That's 100% false,it didn't do any of that. Not to mention that it's not a giant and they know where it's from..... This flick is so bad that the make-up "artist" gets his name in the opening credits and the make-up is just some dirt on the guys face. So anyway,a scientist and his daughter show up in some country town(sounds REAL familiar) and guess what?They immediately run into another scientist!!! Turns out the younger scientist was at a lecture given by the older one but the old guy doesn't remember.At the same time the sheriff shows up to hassle the old guy and warn him that the younger guy is probably a murderer, even though there's no evidence to support that. Most of the movie is spent using terrible writing and acting to get the characters to split up,it's silly. The old guy has come to town to search for artifacts to prove whites had been there centuries before Columbus and that one of them was a giant.After a few minutes of searching he decides to give up,then they stumble on a mass grave.They dig it up and without any evidence of a giant he gives up again.Then the younger guy finds the giant's armor while hitting on the older guy's daughter, AND IT'S JUST BURIED UNDER SOME LEAVES!!!!!!!! Oh,it gets worse. They decide to hang the armor on a tree and go to sleep.Guess what happens next?? You just wasted an hour and a half. Watch this movie expecting it to suck and it might not make you angry.If you never see it,you didn't miss anything.

Genre: Comedy, Horror, Thriller
Release: November 13, 2020
I watched this movie for its two hours and have absolutely no idea what it's about. Somebody got murdered or maybe they didn't and maybe somebody did it or maybe they didn't. This brought back memories of the good old days (bad old days?) when all CBC Canadian movies were stinkers. Lately stinkers have been the exception but this confused hodge podge of trendy feminism, mind reeling flash backs and mumbled dialogue makes up for lost time. I've never found Margaret Atwood's books easy to read. This movie continues that fine Canadian tradition. It isn't easy to watch. Maybe the trendy folks at the chi chi Toronto cocktail parties will pretend they liked it. Us folks in the boonies are a little less pretentious.

Alluc The New Mutants
When this show first premiered in the 1960's, it was called one of the most violent shows in the history of television. However, if it were to come on today, it probably would just be given a TV-PG rating. Today's show push the envelope of blood and guts to a disgusting limit, but Mannix was mainly given that reputation because every show would feature a knockdown, drag out fight which usually would wind up with him ending up a bloody pulp and the other guy either dead or beaten worse than he was. However, this show, despite the violence was still one of the most popular shows of the late 1960's/early 1970's.

Although I vaguely remember this from the 90s,I saw this show properly for the first time the other day (bought Series 1 DVD). Essentially it depicts the lives of 2 divorcees trying to start a new romance together, despite constant distractions from his ex-wife + her teenage children.
Although the humour is feeble, obsolete even,the show is nonetheless quite substantial simply for 2 reasons:-
1) The actors - 2point4 Children's Belinda Lang plays the ex-wife, and the (back then) really cute Julia Sawalha,of Absolutely Fabulous and Press Gang fame,plays the teenage daughter.
2) The archetypal early 90s British setting; the show is a nostalgic trip into the modest mums, baggy/black-clad teens and horrendous suburban wallpapers of the day!
Second rate by all means; while the BBC had all the essential comedy classics, perhaps ITV intended to spare a weekly slot for such mediocrity. That said, I will give it 6/10 simply for the established actors and the kitsch-yet-classy early 90s cultural setting.

Alluc Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey
Although this movie might in some respects be considered politically incorrect today, it is quite funny in the context of the era in which it was written - some 30 years ago. Compared to a number of more recent movies coming out of Jamaica, the acting and directing are certainly of better quality. This alone is amazing, given the advances that have been made in film-making since the time Smile Orange was made.
Certainly, for anyone who is Jamaican, grew up or lived in Jamaica, visited Jamaica or interacted with Jamaicans in any way, the humour of this movie is hard to miss. At the same time, there were a few continuity problems and, in some respects, the film comes across as being somewhat amateur. However, it is quite nostalgic for people over a 'certain age' and overall is fairly humorous, which I think, was the intention. I'd love to see a remake!

Yes, this is a silly farce. So were "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers", and they are considered classics. I liked this better; certainly it's more suited for the whole family.
The plot is simple: wealthy Milton Parker has died and his will specifies that his survivors (servants as well as relatives) must complete in a scavenger hunt to gather up various items, which must be taken and not purchased. The items are placed into various bins per group of competitors, and the items are awarded points. Those who get the most points by the end of the time period wins the fortune while the others get nothing.
The rest of the movie consists of funny ways for the various groups to get the items and making it back to the home with them, along with one family who resorts to stealing from the others. Not high art, but good low art.

Alluc True to the Game 2
This supernatural/horror movie was way too ambitious for its own good considering it's very limited budget, talent and the story was just too over their heads, I've just seen way too many movies like it and most of them are way better than this mess. The only part that I liked was the creepy dream sequence in the beginning that makes you think that this might be a pretty good and spooky flick but I was dead wrong. It pretty much went nowhere terrifying from there and it was like a broken record going around in a pretty generic and boring path that lost my interest but I stuck it out waiting for something better but it never came through for me. It's a shame because judging from the trailer it looked like it was going to be one scary flick but I should know by now not to judge a movie by it's trailer but was so much looking forward to this flick, I'm very disappointed in the poor performance on display here. Overall this was pretty much a huge failure on all counts and very generic through and through, this could of been so much better if it was in the right hands. Not recommended!!! More of a 1.5 out of 5 stars.

Unhinged Alluc (2020)
Release: August 21, 2020
Pece Dingo's MIDNIGHT CABARET reveals it's hand early when the fragrant, shaggable damsel at the focus of it's "story" (Lara Harrington, looking fresh), a struggling actress named Tanya, finds herself thrust into a nightmare vision where she is pursued through a Gothic, fashionable Los Angeles by a straight edge razor wielding vampire whom she had witnessed feeding off another hunk in a downright sexual manner. He is stark naked, with plenty of rump shots as he scuttles up various staircases in pursuit of her nightie-clad, rain dampened body. Either the film is gay, or it's for the ladies, which turns out to be the case by the second reel when we get to see her apartment. It isn't a living space for a struggling actress, it's a stylistic flourish dream pad that Mies Van Der Rohe would have had trouble paying the rent on.
The premise for the film is actually interesting: A super high-class nightclub/cabaret type of hotspot staging neo-Grand Guginol type performances which blur the line between reality and dreams. Are the performances for real or imaginary? The answer seems to be yes, they are both. Everyone has perfect clothes, perfect hair, plenty of cigarettes, and behave as though they were in a Duran Duran music video. Which makes sense given the presence of lead actor Michael Des Barres, who fronted a Duran Duran spin off band during the 1980s. He glowers under his highly stylized hairdo, rasping in a mid Atlantic half-British accent while intoning the Prince of Darkness, ironically clad in a perfect white suit. His stage MC evokes a pre-heroin Boy George, and everyone in the cast is apparently on the verge sleeping together in the most casual of ways.
Slowly the dream imagery of the stage plays begins to spill over into Tanya's fashionable life as she finds herself plagued by aspiring rapists or hunky suitors who seem more interested in how they are being lit than actually getting away with anything. Even the film's would-be heroic cop, trying to get to the bottom of things after some untimely deaths, swaggers through the frame in a $1500 knee length designer jacket while wafting cigarette smoke through the diffused lighting. Is he a real person or a functionary of her dream? The film seems more interested in making us wonder if he'd be a good kisser more than how he pays for his wardrobe. The fact that he never bothers to read the lass her rights even when interrogating her over the coincidental murders of everyone close to her suggest that he's either inept or simply hot for a date.
The film gets one thing right which is putting the viewer into a state of confusion over whether what we are watching is supposed to be part of the nightclub act or reality, no easy feat since Ms. Harrington spends an awful lot of time running blindly down empty city blocks while always managing to look freshly showered. The story becomes secondary to the imagery, which has more in common with a Nagel print than it does a standard horror movie, with the complete absence of exploitational female nudity eventually giving the film's agenda away, which is to be respectable at all costs. Even when the characters are having sex the film manages to avoid being sleazy or voyeuristic. Here at last is a horror movie for couples, where all the guys are sensitive minded beefcake and all of the women are resourceful, quick witted, and have fantastic apartments. Nobody seems to have a job or need money, people speak in hushed stage whispers or listen in turn attentively, and hot chicks don't mind having 2nd hand smoke blown in their faces because the smokers all look so great.
In other words I'm not the person to be reviewing this film. It's poised, dramatic sensibilities are wasted on me and will find their most appreciating audiences in fashion minded females in their mid 30s who still go nightclubbing & are nostalgic for the 1990s. Guys watching this will feel under-dressed and somewhat at a loss for what to say, other than perhaps asking "So when do we get to see her tits?" You never do, but afterward you might just find yourself in the mood for a cup of International House French Vanilla coffee. And a cigarette.

Jungleland Alluc (2020)
Release: November 6, 2020
Before the Battle of Alamein reached its crescendo, and before the victorious finale in Tripoli, there was a long drawn out overture which lasted from June 1940 to October 1942. It was to turn this campaign into something unique in World War Two.
A featureless land fit only for war, as the narrator, J. L. Hodson stated in the early scenes. "If war was to be fought then let it begin here". In endless miles of rock-strewn scrub desert, where civilians hardly existed. If chivalry existed in war, then chivalry was here also; as the veterans on both sides claimed. This was the only campaign were a spirit of comradeship and respect existed between the opposing armies. They even shared the same popular song, "Lili Marlene".
How did soldiers cope with the desert conditions? The men of the Afrika Korps coped well enough. They were a highly disciplined obedient product of the world's most professional military establishment. The Italians, it is said, brought along their comfort women to make life a little easier. To British and Commonwealth soldiers desert fighting was an old story. Anglo-Egyptian Sudan in the 19th Century, Jordan, Palestine, Mesopotamia (now Iraq), in the 20th Century. They took it in their stride.
From 1940 to 1942 this campaign swung back and forth between El Alamein in Egypt and westward to El Agheila in Cyrenaica. Under General Wavell, General O'Connor a daring and imaginative commander, succeeded in destroying a large part of the Italian forces in Libya at Beda Fomm, in December 1940. February 1941 the Afrika Korps arrived on the scene commanded by General Erwin Rommel. A bold and highly respected soldier indeed. The Afrika Korps was about to become famous and show its ability.In Britain unknown desert place names became famous. Benghazi, Gazala, Bardia, Mersa Matruh, and Tobruk.
By July 1942 Rommel's successes had run there course. His long supply lines from Italy via Tripoli were harassed by the Royal Navy, RAF and commonwealth squadrons. He was stopped in his tracks a short distance west of the railway stop at El Alamein, a location that was to win a roomy place in British military history. Tobruk under a second siege had fallen to Rommel. General Auchinleck relieved General Ritchie and took command in the field himself.
Tobruk's fall was a blow to Churchill. He decided that new blood should conduct operations. He wanted to appoint General Sir Henry Maitland "Jumbo" Wilson. He also favoured Lieutenant General Richard "Straffer" Gott. But Gott's luck ran out; killed when flying in a Air Force transport aircraft shot down by the Luftwaffe. General Sir Alan Brooke suggested Montgomery. Churchill concurred. An unknown man outside army circles Lieutenant General Sir Bernard Law Montgomery was a man dedicated to the profession of arms; a soldier to the marrow in his bones. Montgomery's CinC would be General Sir Harold Alexander. An officer and a gentleman to his fingertips if ever there was one. For effect Monty, as he became known, wore a wide-brimmed Australian slouch hat which displayed a number of regimental and commonwealth badges. He ruthlessly fired senior subordinates who did not "measure up". He courted the correspondents. Putting them, "in the picture". Monty would, "...clear this chap Rommel out of Africa once and for all". Thus spoke the British Army's greatest self-publicist! The scribes lapped it up. Monty's self confidence seemed a dangerous weapon in itself.
Rommel decided to strike at the Eighth Army's defensive line which ran forty miles from the coast southwards to the Qattara Depression. Montgomery was building up Eighth's strength at the time. It was called the Battle of Alam Halfa. With air support the ground forces hit back hard. Rommel withdrew.
The offensive at Alamein opened up with a heavy artillery barrage. After twelve days of bitter fighting coupled with ceaseless air attacks by the RAF the Afrika Korps commenced the long retreat from Egypt into Cyrenaica, across Tripolitania, through the Libyan capitol, Tripoli, and into Tunisia. So after two years of a long hard slog the Eighth Army was on a winning streak. Fortune smiled upon the soldier's faces. In the minds of the British people, fed up with defeat and starved of victory, the BBC radio announcement was a delightful shock to the system. At last they had something to cheer about. As the young woman stated in the film, "There's plenty more where that comes from". There was indeed.
In Tripoli, the show place of Mussolini's much vaunted African Empire this documentary ends. Mister Churchill took the salute of the Eighth Army veterans. The Master of Ceremonies? Monty of course, brilliant but insufferable, wearing the now-famous black beret, displaying a general's cap badge and the badge of the Royal Armoured Corps. The victory parade was symbolic in another way. For this long bitterly fought campaign was Britain's imperial swan song. From now on, America would take an increasingly leading role in this worldwide conflict.
Apart from the British divisions there were also Australian, New Zealand, South African, and Indian divisions. And those brave little warriors from Nepal, the fearless Gurkhas. And here in this desert wastes was born the legendary SAS. Commonwealth commanders served the cause well. Generals Pinenaar, South Africa, Freyberg, New Zealand Morshead, and Air Vice Marshal Coningham, Australia.
And what of the two, three, and four star generals? Some known, some not so well known. Some relieved by higher command. Generals, Archie Wavell, Alan Cunningham, and Claude Auchinleck, overshadowed by Harold Alexander and Bernard Montgomery. Others? Neil Ritchie, Oliver Leese, Willoughby Norrie, Herbert Lumsden, Briggs, Dorman-Smith, Godwin Austen, Gatehouse and Brian Horrocks. Some did, "measure up", and some didn't, before and after Montgomery arrived on the scene.

If i could give this a 0 I would.The description makes it sound bad, but bad is not an awful enough word to describe exactly how rubbish this show is. jlo is like watching wood. She is also the worst cop i have ever seen on TV. Mostly she is relying on her jiggly old boobs to get her through. The script is stock, I don't care what happens to any of the characters. The only small saving grace is seeing Ray Liota back on the screen. Shame he chose this pile of poo to do it. I wish i could unwatch this pile of garbage. I hope the network cancels this now before it contributes to s further dumbing down of the TV industry. Do yourself a favour and block this so you can never accidentally switch it on!
