Movie Issues: Seventh Son

He must hunt her down and destroy her before she turns the world into darkness. He recruits young Tom, the seventh son of the seventh son, to help him. Yea…. it’s one of those. Fun special effects, decent plot and interesting characters, but was a huge flop. Sometimes it can’t be helped. But please download and enjoy!! Read On

Review: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

In a year that is rather heavy with the spy genre flicks; Spy, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and, this Christmas, the latest James Bond film, how is one supposed to stand out from the other? Well, having the amazing Guy Ritchie as a director sure helps. His latest movie is The Man From U.N.C.L.E., based on the spy television series of the same name that ran from 1964 to 1968. Set in the 1960’s, while the Cold War was raging, two agents from opposing sides, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and the KGB’s Ilya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer), are forced to work together to extract a young woman, Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander) from East Berlin whose father is being held by Nazis who want him to build them a nuclear bomb. What could have been just another spy flick, ends up being a beautifully stylized film filled with all things that make Guy Ritchie movies so much fun.
