Jett is an action thriller starring Carla Gugino as a master thief. After a stint in prison, she finds herself in a dangerous situation. The series was made for Cinemax but is now available on HBO Max. Season 1 ended just before the pandemic hit, and the series has not been renewed for a second season. A horrific cliffhanger at the end of the season makes the nonrenewal a problem.Continue reading “Jett, with Carla Gugino, brings action and excitement”
Gunpowder Milkshake is like a hundred other films you’ve seen where dozens of men get killed in dozens of creative ways by only a few heroic characters. This film fits that genre. With one exception. The heroic characters are women. It’s streaming on Netflix.Continue reading “Review: Gunpowder Milkshake”
The Haunting of Bly Manor can be considered horror – a ghost story. More accurately it should be called stories about love, life, death, guilt, sacrifice, and chicanery. It’s streaming on Netflix.Continue reading “Review: The Haunting of Bly Manor”
The Haunting of Hill House will be discussed and analyzed for years to come. It’s that kind of work of art. Watching it is like peeling an onion – you think you’ve found the meat, but there’s always one more layer. You dig deeper and deeper in tighter and tighter circles until the whole opens up, explodes, and you’re surrounded by layers again.Continue reading “Review: The Haunting of Hill House”
I don’t think I’ve ever paid money to see a movie starring Dwayne Johnson. That may change. The upcoming disaster movie San Andreas stars Dwayne Johnson as a father and Alexandra Daddario as his daughter. It also features Archie Panjabi, Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti, Ione Gruffudd and Kylie Minogue.
The film description: “In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.”
As you can see from the trailer, the special effects in the film look awesome. Disaster flicks aren’t my usual genre, but – Archie Panjabi. I don’t think she is going to have a very big part, but it is certainly something different from her role on The Good Wife.
All my life, which is a lotta years, I’ve been hearing that the San Andreas fault was going to crack open and half of California would fall into the sea. That’s what this movie is about.
What do you think? Will you give this thriller a try?
