Random Thoughts of a Movie Insomniac #7: In a world of expendable teapots and other flicks.
Hello my dear and sexy readers.
The Expendables 2
The Brass Teapot.
In a World
Rid of Me
The Raid: Redemption"based solely on the concept of cops having to track down a crime lord who lives on the top floor of a large high rise. This one has them battling criminals on each floor but how they arrive there is a bit more interesting. The villain played by Lena Headly("Game of Thrones") is perfect. She is the girl you love to hate. Equal praises go out to Olivia Hubley who plays the new girl on the beat and Karl Urban as Dredd. I have only seen Urban as Dr. "Bones" McCoy in the reboots of "Star Trek", and he was unrecognizable in the lead role. For the entire movie he doesn't take his mask off which I gotta commend. I also gotta praise the cinematography which in my mind is really beautiful. I watched the end credits and was happy to see Anthony Dod Mantle's name listed. He is the man who shot the Oscar winner "Slumdog Millionaire" and the controversial Lars Von Trier flick"Antichrist" The slow motion scenes in "Dredd" reminded me of the prologue scenes from that movie.
What new movies have you seen recently?. Are there ones you think I should see, and are there ones I should fully avoid. Thanks again for your time. I will see you folks soon.
