Well, what can one say... I guess the original draft was thrown into a dustbin half finished and someone picked it up and decided to make something out of it and failed miserably. The acting is not terrible, it's just that what they act is utter trash.
The plot, well there isn't one. Teenage girl have to go to a city in order to rent an apartment to escape the horrible life that she supposedly lives. She and her friends borrows a car that predictably brakes down and they are later picked up by a trucker who let them ride in the cargo compartment. He then dumps them into an abandoned warehouse where they are attacked by vampire things. All but two of them get eaten and the main character discovers that she is a vampire too and they escape to some other abandoned place where she kills and eats a hobo. And that's the end. That's it. Even this review has more content than this utterly pointless creation.

So I watched FURY for the first time last night. So incredibly predictable. Didn't know whether to turn of the telly or laugh....or both. I think the concept and premise had huge potential, but it quickly descended into very clichéd, and unmitigated crap.
You'll live, only the best get killed.
The Great Wall. Okay popcorn for a Saturday night. Nothing more. Rating C- if you've had a beer or two.
Rogue One. I really enjoyed this, the best since TESB imho. Only let down by dodgy cgi for Leia's and Cushing's faces, which was not important. The former could have been filmed from behind so that her face wasn't required, while Cushing could of had his scenes via hologram. Didn't let down the rest of the film, although a few more seconds of DV in combat would have been enjoyable. Rating A+.
A modern western/crime thriller movie. Ben Foster and Chris Pine play two brothers who rob banks trying to save the family farm. I don't want to give away too much of the plot. Jeff Bridges, who plays a Texas Ranger, just about owns this movie. It has a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is almost unheard of.
Even though the movie is set in West Texas, it was actually filmed in New Mexico. I recognized a motel from the movie, Sunset Motel, that is in Moriarty New Mexico.
My Honor was Loyalty, a low-budget WW2 film about SS Soldiers in Ukraine and France. Was on Aussie netflix, pretty bad acting, dialogue, effects, etc, also seemed vaguely apologetic (ok the SS did bad things but they were the victims as well).
In regards to Netflix - rewatched The Siege of Jadotville, enjoyable war movie about a forgotten action.
You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.
Rogue One is a very well done job. I loved the scene of Darth Vader mowing down a bunch of rebel troopers as the corvette readies to escape. That alone is nearly worth enough to own the movie. The cast is outstanding and the story almost makes sense.
Patriot's Day is another good movie retelling the story behind Boston Marathon attacks. Nearly every detail told is accurate and even adds the surveillance footage which boosts the movie's accuracy. I liked the gunfight between terrorists and cops, but I don't know if the scene depicting the gunfight is overly dramatic or not.
I give both movies a big thumb up.
