Rashomon: An appreciation of the language of Japanese Cinema

Daniel Craig Is Having Fun In Steven Soderbergh's LOGAN LUCKY
The only one who knows anything about blowing up real bank vaults is Joe Bang — The trailer for Steven Soderbergh's latest comedy Logan Lucky features a cast of simple-minded characters who appear to be in over their heads as they attempt an elaborate robbery. If this sounds like a familiar recipe, you know that Soderbergh is the master of untangling the intricacies of elaborate heists led by seemingly simple-minded characters. Only this time the characters are led by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as the Lucky brothers, along with an unheralded comedic performance by Daniel Craig as peculiar mannered 'Joe Bang.'
Baywatch - Movie Review
"Beaches Be Crazy" certainly sums up everything about this parody. Here's my take on 2017's raunchy comedy, BAYWATCH. — Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon and is a film based off the 1999's action-drama show of the same name. You know what I'm referring to: Lifeguards that patrol beaches.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" Review
I was a big fan of the original "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy: 2003's "The Curse of the Black Pearl" (which earned Johnny Depp a Best Actor SAG Award), 2006's "Dead Man's Chest" (one of Disney's highest-grossing movies ever) and 2007's "At World's End" (which didn't feature Depp on screen for the entire first half-hour).
Finally Sunday, Truffaut's final film
'All you need to make a movie was a girl and a gun'. This quote, attributed to Jean Luc Godard (although he himself claimed it originated with DW Griffiths) is an assertion that has entered film history and has taken on a life of its own. I would imagine that this rather glib statement was a way of Godard continuing his life's aim of deconstructing cinema and it's language. Of course it is not that easy, and nor should it be. To make a great film, even if it includes the girl and the gun, there should be someone to point the gun at and a reason to point the gun in the first place. It has to have a heart to it, something that is threatened, to achieve true greatness.
Two months ago, Warner Bros. released a modernized movie version of the 70s/80s TV series “Chips”. It was an abysmal failure, both on screen and at the box office.

First Look: Netflix Original Series 'Ozark' Starring Jason Bateman
Netflix released the trailer for their newest original series Ozark, a crime drama about seemingly good people who do bad things. Wait, isn't that Bloodline?

Okay, so on paper it feels like a cross between Bloodline and Breaking Bad, which by all accounts is a fair but unofficial value proposition.
