I love independent movies. They’re extremely underrated and deserve more recognition. One film I’ve watched recently and really enjoyed was 2015’s Jackie & Ryan. Starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes, this romantic drama was filmed entirely in Utah and only took twenty days to shoot. While that sounds like it may not be enough time to put together a decent flick, I wouldn’t rule this one out. It’s a very enjoyable and feel-good movie that’s worth your time.
Due to being an impulsive person at times, I decided to see Thor: Ragnarok last night instead of waiting until Wednesday when schedule to see it with mom (sorry ma). I am thankful though that I get to see this marvelous film again, but it is an experience that needs to be seen again.
If I am being completely honest with myself, and it’s taken a while for me to be; the previous Thor movies were…subpar. Of course, the first movie was essentially the one that got me into the MCU. There had been Iron Man and that was great, but it was Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Loki that captured me. But, that was it. I always found myself fast forwarding to the Loki parts in the first one and The Dark World was….boring.
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.
