Bone Tomahawk (2015)

the story is quite riveting, despite kicking off with a pace of a Japanese samurai film,

you will get rewarded for staying patient.

The hateful Eight (2015) – DCP version

After seeing the 70 mm version I went to see the the DCP version;

the movie, according to the sources is ~5 minutes  shorter, the missing scenes are not crucial to the film, so it is still the same movie, and it is still as god as it should be!

The real bad thing about the DCP in comparison to the film-print version are the shitty colours of the DCP version.

White Dog (1982) | Eureka!

Last Time I have seen it, it was from a VHS-rip;

the Eureka! blu-ray presentation is a nice to-digital transfer, the booklet of the issue is quite thick, unfortunately there is only the movie on the disc without any extras.

This film still has it, and like every Sam Fuller movie, it has an interesting Story.

The Green Inferno (2013/2015)

This is actually well done,

it has some new elements that the old cannibal movies did not have,

it also has some classic screenwriter / director moves.

The crash reminded me of the plane scene from the movie ‘Alive’ (1993), Green Inferno has some upgrades added to it.

 

IMO it plays a bit better than ‘Aftershock’

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

This was not a waste of time for sure,

simple plot, nice humor, great soundtrack, songs also well placed in the film (especially the truck – motorboat -love -scene with this song ).

Some CGI could be avoided, to much Berlin got artificially generated for my eye. They should learn from the German studios how to do it properly.

Also the KGB -Trabant had to much horsepower (more than a real-life one) in some scenes, could this vehicle take part in a John-Woo like chase scene – for sure. here’s the scene’s -anatomy guide.

just found a web quote:

So how do you turn a 26-horsepower Trabant into an action hero? To prepare the 601 for its role in The Man from UNCLE, the film’s stunt team replaced the original 0.6-litre two-cylinder engine with the screaming in-line four from a Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike – and in the process changed the driven wheels from front to rear. The result is a wickedly quick, tail-happy monster.
