Monkey Man

Dev Patel stars in this movie as an unnamed fighter who is named as Kid in the credits. He earns a small amount of cash working in an underground fight club.

His trademark is that every night he fights while wearing a gorilla mask. He is regularly beaten badly night after night by better and more well-known fighters just in order to earn his meager cash from the sleazy promoter. He actually gets extra cash if he bleeds. He has seriously scarred hands from his many beatings, and he intends to use these hands to unleash years of trauma starting from his childhood against those that he considers have ruined his life.

This includes the chief of police. Patel plays the role extremely well and will anything be able to stop him from his ultimate aim?

The Beast

The Beast is set in the year 2044. Artificial Intelligence seems to be controlling everything and everyone enabling humans to erase their past feelings which would remove any broken hearts from previous romantic encounters. Gabrielle, played by Lee Seydoux is constantly falling in love with different incarnations of Louis, played by George MacKay. Louis is from the United Kingdom who meets Gabrielle and whisks her away from her uncaring husband who is a violent American and who is determined to deliver retribution.

Gabrielle is hoping that with AI she can fully engage with Louis. This has to happen otherwise they could be doomed to return to their previous lives and all that goes along with that.

An interesting concept which will make us think how the future generations will cope with Artificial Intelligence.

Back to Black

This movie is based on the life of Amy Winehouse, the singer/songwriter. Marisa Abela plays Amy. Amy is considered by many to be one of the biggest names in the music industry to originate in the UK.

Back to Black was the title of Amy’s second and final album released in 2006 and was based on her at times tumultuous relationship with her husband at the time, British musician Blake Fielder-Civil. It seems impossible that she only ever released two albums.

The movie follows her career from her early days in Camden, North London throughout her various struggles with alcohol and drugs. Considered by many to be a genius and a ground-breaking performer which took her to global fame.

Her untimely death at the age of 27 in 2011 came as a complete shock to her millions of fans.


Abigail Movie Trailer courtesy of the Universal Pictures YT Channel

Stephen Shields wrote this new horror movie with a supernatural theme. Abigail is the twelve-year old ballet dancing Daughter of a very powerful criminal figure. A gang of fairly amateur criminals are tasked with kidnapping Abigail and keeping watch over her through a night in an isolated mansion. The perfect scene for a horror movie. It sounds a simple task especially as the plan includes the collection of a fifty million-dollar ransom.

Things go terribly wrong for the gang when it transpires they are now locked in the scary mansion and Abigail is certainly not a normal twelve-year old girl, but is a bloodthirsty vampire. The gang members begin to dwindle as expected, but that’s the only spoiler I can reveal as I still haven’t watched this movie yet. Looking forward to sitting down with my vampire sweets from the penny sweet shop and chewing my way through this one!

Be prepared for some edge of your seat and scary scenes.
