For some unknown reason, whenever I think of the film Wind River, I want to start singing ‘Moon River’ by Andy Williams. No idea why; it just happens. Wind River is a film by Taylor Sheridan, who is also responsible for such thrillers as Sicario and Hell or High Water. This latest film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, in very snowy Wyoming. The plot centers around the two attempting to solve the murder of a young woman on Wind River Indian Reservation.
Shot Caller doesn’t hit the screens until August 18th, but was released on DirecTV on July 20th. Ric Roman Waugh’s latest film was actually completed in 2015, but the release was postponed to 2017 due to Relativity Media filing for bankruptcy in July 2015. Thankfully, everyone gets a chance to see Nikol Coster-Waldau turn from family man to ruthless gang leader this August.
Pilgrimage recently released in the UK July 3rd, available in select theaters, as well as DVD/Blu-Ray and digital HD. For us US viewers, we will have to wait until August 11th to get our turn to view the Irish film. Admittedly, I streamed this movie online, because I absolutely did not want to wait. Don’t worry though, I fully plan on purchasing Pilgrimage once it becomes available in the Google Play Store in August.
If you’re a Blaine fan like me, you were most likely disappointed with the direction the writers took in late season 2. David Anders is well known for playing the lovable bad guy as Julian Sark in Alias and Dr. Whale/Victor Frankenstein in Once Upon a Time. For me, my introduction to Anders was from iZombie and Blaine quickly became my favorite character in the show.
No, this is not a Throwback Thursday, although the film (or films) I’m writing about are not current. At times, it takes me a while to watch movies or shows, and I am not the biggest fan of horror. Which, is the reason for not having watched any of the three Purge movies. The concept, from trailers; was not something that appealed to me. Not until recently and now, I’ve seen all three. Let’s begin a thought analysis, shall we?
If you loved Get Out (how could you not?), you’ll want to watch some of Daniel Kaluuya’s past work. The twenty-seven English actor is just starting his career, but he’s been involved in some big named projects already. He’s been in the well-known series Skins and Black Mirror and I can imagine that Get Out is going to catapult him into being a household name; especially since he also will be in the highly anticipated upcoming Black Panther movie.
My introduction to Kaluuya was in the 2015 film Sicario. The drama stars Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who gets recruited to join the CIA on a mission to take down a well-known drug cartel leader. Kaluuya plays her partner/only friend/mother figure.
The Walking Dead and The Punisher star Jon Bernthal is known for playing badass characters. From Shane Walsh, to Frank Castle and his roles in other films such as Fury and The Accountant, Bernthal usually is the guy with the less than reputable morals. Yesterday, the trailer for his latest project Pilgrimage dropped and Bernthal has gone Medieval.
