Siren
1h 33min | Drama | 26 October 2013 (USA) | TV-MA
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083332/
~ Director: Jesse Peyronel; Writer: Jesse Peyronel (screenplay); Starring: Vinessa Shaw, Robert Kazinsky, Bess Wohl and more. See imdb for details. ~

A fantastic tale about a women with a medical “siren-like” condition where no human or animal can resist her pheromones, driving them crazy enough to take their own lives. This has forced her since puberty to live reclusively on an estate in the middle of nowhere for the rest of her life. She meets a man who has a disorder that doesn’t allow him to smell, making him resistant against hers. He is the first man she can trust, or can she? I thought the screenplay was grand, story line interesting, and production well done. Great plot. Watched on Amazon prime. 4/7/18

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Three Billboards outside of Ebbing Missouri (R: 2017)

Three Billboards outside of Ebbing Missouri
R | 1 hour 55 minutes | Crime, Drama | 1 December 2017 ~ Director: Martin McDonagh; Writer: Martin McDonagh; Starring: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell | See full cast & crew on IMDB. ~

The tale of a unsolved mystery and traumatic murder that struck the town of Ebbing, Missouri along a un-used old highway. Mildred Hays is infuriated with local law enforcement and decides to take in-your-face action against the local law enforcement to motivate them to solve the crime. She paints three billboards with controversial messages aimed at the local sheriff Willoughby played by Woody Harrelson. Violence, brutality, arson, and false arrests create a circus of activity in this small once quiet town. High action and deep contemplation, the ending would not be of my choosing even though its meant to carry on into your dreams that night. Well done and great plot.

The Post (PG-13: 2017)

The Post (PG-13: 2017)
~ PG-13 | 1 hour 56 minutes | Biography, Drama, History | 12 January 2018 (USA) ~
~ Director: Steven Spielberg; Writers: Liz Hannah, Josh Singer; Starring: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson | See full cast & crew at IMDB. ~

A great film with a blast from the past in the Nixon era covering a pre-Wiki-Leaks drama and coming out of government secrets and cover-ups over the Vietnam War. The controversy spanned over four presidencies continuing to put soldiers at risk and death because of it. When the secret files were release to the Times and the Washington Post, the ordeal has Nixon taking the newspapers to the Supreme Court, fighting for rights of freedom of the the Press. The fight was unprecedented and a landmark in history for the U.S.A.’s first woman newspaper publisher. I thought it was very well done, informative, and great roles for Hanks and Streep who worked well together. A must see. Eye opening and awakening.

~ 2 hours – Drama, Romance, Mystery, Adventure. Director: James Foley; Writers: Niall Leonard (screenplay by), E.L.

~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~ Viewed 2/9/18 at Tinseltown with Movie Pass ~

The Saga continues to the final chapter after Anastasia and Christian Grey return home to Seattle after a amazing honeymoon in Europe. Christian gets a bit over-protective and demanding of his new wife, in part to protect her against Hyde who seeks vengeance upon them both. Gifting her a life of leisure and her own publishing company, the two newly weds start settling in with a lavish life together with a very intimate and erotic zeal in life together. Things go down under quickly as the madman Hyde seeks to destroy them, eventually turning to criminal motives that endanger them and their relationship. It becomes a battle of committment vs. freedom, control vs. safety, as the Red Room is used in push-n-pull marital dynamics of individuality and the bonds of marriage. Questions of commitment vs. adultery, bondage and BDSM will make the mystery deeper as it extends to their friends as well. A pregnancy is thrown into the mix as emotions blow up intermingled with threats of murder, kidnapping, and violence. The plot toils and tumbles with high action, car chases, deceipt, sex, eroticism, and conundrums. Very well done and captivating throughout the entire screenplay. Rated: 5 stars out of 5.
