Solar Impact Afdah (2020)
Release: November 15, 2019
Afdah Solar Impact
I liked it, I thought it was funny. And said some truth to it. But then again just about every movie has some truth in its name. Especially how Shari was dealing with a pregnancy, and a boyfriend who refused to get married because of being terrified which is really understandable. The relationship between the guys was really strange and amazing. Having that one friend that knows how to push someones buttons until they snap. We all have friends like that. But i have a question, do you know the song that was playing during the scene of Gregory's funeral? it really caught my attention and i want that song now. Any possible way of finding out the name of that song for me? thanks.

Mortal Afdah (2020)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release: February 28, 2020
"Feline Follies" is the first Felix the Cat cartoon, though it isn't exactly the Felix that was popular through the 1920s. The character looks similar and it was brought to the public by the same folks who made the Felix cartoons, though he is more like a real cat in this cartoon and they call him 'Master Tom'.
The film begins with Tom going out for a walk and meeting a cute white female cat. They spend time together--much to the annoyance of everyone but the mice! And, in the end, the ending (which I won't divulge) is very, very dark--and the sort of cartoon parents probably would NOT let their kids see! So dark that I was actually pretty shocked.
While this cartoon is much too normal for my tastes (except for the ending), it is historically important and worth a look if you are an aficionado of the history of cartoons.

Resistance Afdah (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, War
Release: March 27, 2020
Ok fellahs and dames, I saw this movie for the first time...yesterday...6 years this movie has been out and I saw it yesterday, pathetic I know, but I was definately not disappointed. Not only does this movie possess comedy, but it's thrilling. I was on the edge of my seat in some of the scenes. I honestly didn't know who to cheer for between Miguel (Antonio Banderas) and Robert (Sylvester Stallone). I enjoy them both and both their characters were hitmen. Even though Robert was trying to go through a change, he was still a hitman, end of story. Now Miguel he was a little more cut-throat. In this story Robert is starting to grow a soft spot and only kills the person he was hired to kill...leaving innocents out of it. While Miguel was ready to shoot a 7-year old soccer player to get what he wanted. Banderas plays this part well. I dunno if any of you caught this but when Banderas is handling a gun he does alot of the same things in movie. Scenes from the movie "Desperado" started to flash in my head when I saw Banderas and Stallone duking it out at the cemetary. Robert is then hired to hit a mark, which is a woman who is only known by a pair of cat eyes, to retrieve a disc, and also kill the buyers. Miguel is also hired for the same job causing a little game between the 2 hitmen. Ofcourse Robert can't come around to killing Electra (Julianne Moore), so he instead protects her and later teams up with her for some more delightfully planned out "fun". I really enjoyed this movie because I am the crime loving type. I also loved it because of the connection between Electra and Robert. A definate must see if you enjoy movies such as this. If you don't prefer them then go watch, "Aladdin".

Peninsula Afdah (2020)
Genre: Action, Horror, Thriller
Release: August 7, 2020
Only the pilot is out, so all the people whining about character development, plot development, and so on, give me a break! Watch 5- 10 episodes of a new show before judging.
Sure, it's been done before (Like "Intelligence", which I also enjoyed. Even "The 6 Million Dollar Man!"), but it's a fresh twist. I wish they had done a 2-episode pilot, to develop the story-line and characters a bit more, but it was fast-paced and there was enough to get my interest piqued...
We will have to see, but I am enjoying it so far. I am entertained, and that's what this is all about folks. "Formulatic"? Of course! Most TV is ...and if we've seen some elements before, it's because, hello!, it works! ...Plus it's what, folks like myself, want to see.
Robert Kazinsky is good in the main role - I can "see" his former self "coming thru" his new, younger self. I am also really glad to see Tim DeKay, as he's a great character actor - I was wondering where he'd end up, after "White Collar", another favorite show of mine - back as an FBI agent "again", there's a stretch, but he does it so well! ...This is full of excellent actors.
I love shows like this, because there's so much room for development, directions they can take it, a lot of potential there. It appears Fox ordered 13 episodes ...I can't wait to see where it goes!

Marriage Story Afdah (2019)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Release: December 6, 2019
Afdah Marriage Story
Having grown up watching Rob's films (The Animal and The Hot Chick were two of my first DVDs), my review is somewhat biased. That being said, this is most likely the best work he has ever done. Some people may laugh and say "Well, that's not hard to accomplish", but this is unlike any of his previous material (sure, it has some of the humor he is famous for). Here we see a different side of Rob, and the show tackles many serious subjects in ways I've never seen before. It really hits home if you live in LA and have spent time around wealthy/famous people.
Give it a chance! The first episode isn't as strong as the later episodes, in my opinion, and I almost turned it off. In the end, I'm glad I kept watching. Great job Rob, it's good to have you back with humor that has matured with my age.
Also, this show made me realize how similar he is to Michael Keeton in both looks and expression!

Greyhound Afdah (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 Afdah (2020)
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Release: July 10, 2020
Afdah The Old Guard
I found LUKAS' CHILD on a two disk set with the truly terrible THE SCREAMING and one of the worst movies ever made, HELLSPAWN. This was the best of them. The best scenes in this movie have a cult wearing skull masks feeding girls to "the child". The guy who plays the cult leader does a great job. However, the subplot about the detective investigating the cult and the snooping kids are both garbage. Watch this for the cult scenes, girls undressing, and some (unintentionaly) funny bits. It's at least as good as some of the things Roger Corman produced. The folks who made this clearly have a future in the exploitation/horror movie business.

First Cow Afdah (2020)
Release: July 10, 2020
Afdah First Cow
I'm probably the youngest person to even see this movie. Every time i watch it i practically break out in goosebumps from the powerful music. As a 16 yr old,i find this movie AMAZING, i mean AMAZING!!!!!! You don't even need to care about religion(though it helps) to love this movie. My all time favorite song is Could We start again please because it makes me nearly cry when i hear it. My favorite scenes are the ones with the ..what are they magistrates or w/e because of there voices.. i swear if i knew anyone whose voice was that whiny and/or deep i might just show it off and make fun of it myself. The only parts i really didn't like were the images that they portrayed Jesus in (e.g: in could we start again Jesus shrugs ...... would Jesus shrug.. heck no; also, he was so skinny and short and ....not Jesus looking..i mean they must've based it on the fact that he had long hair and a mini-beard.. and he could sing). But back to the point. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Jesus Christ Superstar. The first time i had ever heard about this movie/musical i swore to myself that i'd never watch it because it sounded sacrilegious to make a rock musical about Jesus' life and to only cover Matthew and John. And my mom told me it was a waste of time so i put off watching it for 2 years and i think that was the worst mistake of my life.. because when i finally watched it i was speechless. Mary Magdelene and Judas, Oh my gosh, the best singers of the whole thing. My life was so influenced. I recommend that anyone who doubts the Christian religion, hates musicals, and/or is a hypocritical idiot should watch this musical because it can seriously change lives.

Hamilton Afdah (2020)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Musical
Release: July 03, 2020
Was in the London Comic Con audience to listen to the panel and heard Katie Newman the ITV Producer explain how she dreamed up this vague concept related to Beowulf and then handed it to James Dormer to write- and I thought to myself this has a very little chance of being any good. You would think that ITV would have taken an established literary series like HBO did with Game of Thrones. The BBC learned its lesson with the dire Atlantis and used Bernard Cornwell's established series to create The Last Kingdom- which is not quite in the GOT league but is much much better than this dire mess. The best thing on screen is the CGI and that's not saying much. Thought I would give it another chance but the second episode was even worse than the first, monsters without provenance, wooden acting, a non existent plot and characters that appear to have emerged straight from 'The A Team'. A bigger waste of £17 million would be hard to fathom.

The Outpost Afdah (2020)
Genre: Drama, History, War
Release: July 03, 2020
Afdah The Outpost
Colony has a fairly original premise. The characters are at times a bit hard to stomach, but overall it's a pleasant watching experience. I found it well worth sitting through an at times annoying first season just to get through to season 2, which is much more interesting. The character development in season 2 has been quite impressive and they are now much more acceptable heroes and anti-heroes. Worth watching.

Luce Afdah (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.

Afdah Impractical Jokers: The Movie
This strange short story tells an old tale in a new way. Two ambitious, young children chase down a rabbit and find a small idol hidden inside. This idol has the odd power of turning insects into jewels. Soon, the two kids hatch up a plan to make an operation of itkilling animals to attract flies that are then transformed into more jewels. Connections to our consumer culture can be readily drawn.
Animated from a set of 1950s stickers meant to teach kid's how to read, Rabbit reads like a children's book brought to life in 3D. In combination, the horrific storyline and the innocent imagery creates a sense of twisted unease that has no equal.
Run Wrake is a seasoned animator/illustrator with a bizarre taste in the grotesqueness of pop culture. His website is chock full of more film pieces and probably the best illustrated biography page I've seen.

Afdah The Personal History of David Copperfield
This show is amazing. Yes it had a few problems in season one and it took a while for the actors, writers and production crew to adjust and find their rhythm like many shows but season two showed what this show is capable of. This show has everything you could ask for. It has entertainment and good characters as well as well as good rep for pretty much everyone and its just getting started.The first few eps of the show might not be to your taste but everything gets better as it goes along especially the acting, effects and writing and direction. So if you quit in season one then give it another chance and stick with it because season two and especially 2B is amazing and even the last few eps of season one are quite good. It really sets the tone for season two and for 2B to blow our socks off and now hopefully season three will too.

Artemis Fowl Afdah (2020)
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
Release: June 12, 2020
Afdah Artemis Fowl
This is one of the first movies in her early career as an actress. I thought it was well acted and the plot was pretty good. I won't watch it again, for myself it was just a one time thing. I think it would appeal to kids and to families more than to adults. I was a little disappointed with the ending.
*Major Spoiler* She doesn't end up with the prince and I really wanted her to. I think they were going for a more realistic ending but honestly, life is realistic enough. I don't need "realism" from fictional movies. In the movies the girl is supposed to get the guy and vice versa. If you invest your time in a movie then you should get the happy ending. So no I won't watch it again.

The Blackout Afdah (2019)
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Release: November 21, 2019
Afdah The Blackout
The Nostril Picker is a crap film, whether you're a lover of trash movies or not. Yet I still feel it has enough good moments to redeem itself. The idea is unique - I've never heard of another film where a man can make himself look like a girl in order to befriend young girls. As silly as the plot is, at least its a bit different. This film could have been so much better if they had of added more gore and used better actors, as the killer is really quite pathetic. The best scene is when the male hooker goes to the police station to report that he was attacked by the nostril picker. "I demand satisfaction, now!" he says. It's hilarious watching him try to explain to the police officer that he was chased by a man holding a dildo. The gore isn't much to wet yourself over, at least not on the Vipco DVD version I watched. A girl gets her fingers chopped off (a poor mans version of the fingers scene in The Burning), the hooker gets his throat slit, and another girl is stabbed to death but all we see is blood splattering over a wire fence. The ending is quite good and actually original, which gets extra marks from me.
Overall, The Nostril Picker is quite boring at times but depending on your opinion, has a lot of good elements like the ones I've described. If you're a slasher fan I would give this a watch at least once, after all, a title like "The Nostril Picker" will have all your friends dying to know what the film is about.

The Invisible Man Afdah (2020)
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Release: February 28, 2020
Afdah The Invisible Man
The thing that attracted me to this movie was its title. I love Europe and have long had a fascination with Switzerland both for its beauty and its fierce, unwaivering independence and neutrality. Plus, I'm into women from the German speaking countries and this movie stars two beautiful ones, Elke Sommer and Senta Berger! So for $1.99, it was an automatic buy for me! So what if I wasn't clear about the plot?! To start off, the movie gets my award for the most attention grabbing intro that I've ever seen. A waiter in a fancy restaurant wheels a cart up to a table, pulls a gun out of his pants and shoots the customer - all in the first 30 seconds.
We later find out that the man killed in that scene was crooked arms deealer Georg Rasher of Vienna (the actor who plays him is uncredited) - one of five holders of secret accounts at a Swiss bank who recently received a blackmail notice that threatens to expose the account unless 1,000,000 Swiss francs are paid. In addition, the bank is told to pay 10,000,000 francs to keep the accounts secret. The total of 15,000,000 francs demanded is said to be the equivalent of about $6,000,000.
To investigate, the bank hires David Christopher (played by David Janssen), a former U.S. Department of Justice official who now resides in Geneva. In the course of his investigation, Christopher talks to the four living blackmailees - lovely Zürich resident Denise Abbott (Berger), who becomes his obligatory love interest, Texas businessman Dwight McGowan (John Ireland), Chicago crook Robert Hayes (John Saxon) and Dutchman Andre Kosta (Curt Lowens). It turns out that Christopher and Hayes already have a negative history with each other, which isn't surprising, as volatile and obnoxious as Hayes is.
Like many good mysteries, this movie gives us several suspects to choose from including Rita Jensen (Sommer), the mistress of the bank's vice president, Franz Benninger (Anton Diffring), and two men who are out to kill Hayes and Christopher, Korsak (Arthur Brauss) and Sando (David Hess).
Two other characters who add a lot to the movie are the bank's worried president, Johann Hurtil (Ray Milland) and Captain Hans Frey (Inigo Gallo) of the Swiss Federal Police, who is suspicious of Christopher and has several sarcastic run ins with him.
Eventually, the bank decides to cave in and pay the blackmailer. But what action movie hero would go for that?! Christopher, of course, attempts to foil the plot, which leads to a dramatic climax that provides a couple of surprising twists.
Some people complain that this movie is confusing. And I understand their point. To understand it fully, you have to pay very close attention to it from start to finish. It's very cleverly written and if you miss even a minute or two, you'll probably miss something important.
The two cuts of the movie that I've seen are relatively short - 1:20:57 and 1:23:22) - but not a single second is wasted. The movie has so much intrigue from so many sources that there's no room for boredom. There's lots of suspense, the action scenes are exciting and heightened by Klaus Doldiner's progressive jazz-funk music, the scenery (I'm fairly certain that it was filmed entirely in Switzerland) is fantastic and the combination of European and American actors give it a strong international feel.
Judging the movie by itself, I consider "The Swiss Conspiracy" to be a great movie. But its technical quality leaves a significant amount to be desired. Visually, it's decent, but the sound wavers from solid to weak, sometimes in the same scene. At several points, the dialogue is so soft that it's hard to decipher - so much so that I rewound, turned up the volume very loudly and sometimes still couldn't pick out the words.
Also, I warn you that on the cheapie DVD that I have, some of the editing is embarrassingly sloppy. And the transfer apparently comes not from an original source but rather a TV company as the obscenities are silenced! There is a free version available for download at http://www.publicdomaintorrents.com. It apparently is the theatrical version of the movie or at least closer to it than the cheapie DVD version is. The movie has apparently become public domain. I don't know how it reached that status but it's very sad that it did.
In conclusion, "The Swiss Conspiracy" is a great mystery thriller that could have been something spectacular with a big budget. Still, it is my favorite obscure movie of all time. I love the movie so much that I have a web page for it at http://www.geocities.com/theswissconspiracy and an e-mail discussion list for it at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/theswissconspiracy.
Only the movie's technical deficiencies prevent it from getting a perfect 10. As it is, I rate it 9/10.

Brahms: The Boy II Afdah (2020)
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Release: February 27, 2020
Afdah Brahms: The Boy II
UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL is a '70s version of the classic Mark Twain story, A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT. The story has been updated to the space age, with a lone young astronaut and his android double breaking through a time barrier in space and finding themselves back in King Arthur's day, where they must battle evil and romance willing maidens and the like.
It's all very juvenile, of course, but then you expect little else from a Disney production. However, like a lot of Disney movies, UNIDENTIFIED FLYING ODDBALL is a colourful romp through medieval times and one that's filled with incident, so there's plenty to enjoy here, as long as you like your entertainment basic and your jokes rather obvious. I thought the main American star, Dennis Dugan, was poor indeed, but the supporting cast of British character actors makes up for him: Jim Dale, cast against type as the villain; Ron Moody as the delightfully sneaky Merlin; a near unrecognisably aged Kenneth Moore as Arthur; and the reliable Rodney Bewes and John Le Mesurier in comic support.

This is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the most ridiculous (yet ridiculously-entertaining) B-movies ever lensed. SEE- the female star blow-dry her hair after removing her shower cap! SEE- the female star lock her mom's boyfriend INSIDE her bedroom! SEE- her vomit on every single item of furniture in a room, including its small dorm-size refrigerator! SEE- two curly-haired guys beat the crap out of a third curly-haired guy! SEE- a dope-sick junkie suck on a prison sink faucet! SEE- a container of heroin removed from a smugglerette's hairy European rectum (no CGI here, unfortunately)! HEAR- priceless lines such as "She's under the bridge-up to her eyes in dope and syphilis-good luck!" I wish every 90 minutes of my life were this much fun.
