We don’t know exactly what you’ve been busy all week. Maybe with the tenacity of a donkey was working in his office, maybe melted in the sun, listening to the surf. Don’t know what you have planned for the evening: fun in the noisy company, a romantic evening with a friend or play alone. But we are sure that if you want to watch remarkable movie, you will easily find here in our Saturday collection. So, today I look…
1. «Dissenting opinion (Minority Report), 2002
Opens our Saturday selection is a mixture of science fiction, Thriller and detective story with a dash of relevant humor and a great cast. And let Tom cruise back for a long time on his Scientology, for both cheeks kneaded the placenta (former) wife and codaca to complete the program, recognize that he can play. Here the actor plays the role of the good COP of the not so distant future in which the pilot program can be found on has not committed murder and arrest the suspect before he commits a crime. All the fun begins when our hero himself is accused of murdering the man doesn’t even know… Spielberg famously Knows how to spin the story – here too, can not argue. And the film looks at one go: a lot of action, fight for survival and battle of wits. Will not be bored.
2. «Primal fear» (Primal Fear), 1996
This film deserves attention at least because this is the first serious acting work, Edward Norton, and prior to his debut, neither the critics nor the audience did not have any claims.
The picture, shot on the eponymous book by William Diehl, entered the top ten highest grossing films of 1996. «Primal fear» received «Golden globe» and nominated for «Oscar». And everything here is perfect: the actors, the plot, the complexity of the images, an unexpected ending and a real loyalty to the genre of detective Thriller. Look and reconsider with pleasure, so why not stop the choice on this movie?
3. «Calvary» (Calvary), 2014
Strong and quite heavy drama with Brendan Gleeson in the main role. The last one we saw in the image under Alastair «mad-Eye» Moody in «Harry Potter», as the charming criminal in «Lie low in Bruges» imbued with the soul of Kucinich police «Once in Ireland», and now Gleason tried on the guise of a Catholic priest in a small provincial town. With the role he coped well: one of his eyes is a thousand words.
Briefly about the plot: the aforementioned priest at the time of the confession to say that he would die in seven days and offer as soon as possible to complete and put in order all unfinished business. The film is beautiful: incredible and the severe nature of Northern Ireland could not be better reflected the General mood and atmosphere of this movie. There are a lot of strong emotions, dialogues and questions, the answers to which we seek life.
A reflection film, and of course, it is not for watching with popcorn in a noisy company. So if you visited an existential mood, feel free to press «Play».
4.»The Subspecies» (Subspecies), 1990
Now sophisticated audience, a fan of horror movies, to surprise, and even more scare is extremely difficult. But in the nineties this film was one of the few standing at the origins of the «vampire» genre. And he must see everyone who is not indifferent to the classics of the horror movie.
So, rubber mask, fake blood and shameful special effects, but what atmosphere! What a scene! The film was almost entirely shot in Romania – the home of horrible vampire stories. The count’s ruins, the leaden sky, the national folklore translated into the modern realities – all this creates a quite palpable and oppressive sense of presence.
The events in the film develop gradually, slowly, but you will not be bored. Three charming girls go to Transylvania for some research and stay in a remote village next to a medieval castle. Soon they meet a young scientist Stefan and the guy called to help them in word and deed as if he knows these places like the back of his hand. Well, then see for yourself. By the way, «Subspecies» there are already four sequels, but still worthy of only the first part. And suggest it for viewing.
5. «Cops in a deep reserve» (The Other Guys), 2010
Well, at the end we have chosen for you is action Comedy, where all the best from car chases, explosions, shootouts, great jokes (often dirty) and the stunning Eva Mendes for dessert.
The story of two office rats (will Ferrell, mark Wahlberg) who pants sit in police accounting, dreaming about the exploits and jealous of these «stars» of your site (Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson). But everything changes after the absurd and tragic death of the legendary guardians of the law, and our extras get the chance to show itself in all its glory. Then it becomes clear why the boys were not allowed in the field and kept in the deepest reserve.
And let the humor is not the most intelligent, it does not bother us, because at the weekend I want to give the brain a little rest, off mode snob and connoisseur-critics and just have fun watching a wonderful Comedy.
