Traffik (2018: R)

Traffik(R: 2018)
~ R | 1h 36min | Thriller | 20 April 2018 (USA) | Director: Deon Taylor
Writer: Deon Taylor; Starring: Paula Patton, Missi Pyle, Dawn Olivieri, and others – see IMDB for details. ~

An interesting movie about a couple about to become engaged during a special retreat at a cabin in the mountains but is soured by running into conflict with some bikers. It turns out that they hunt them down doing a murder spree along the way. Eventually a high level, international sex trafficking ring is exposed and its a fight for its survival. Challenged by a reporter who exposes the crimes and dangers, waist deep in trouble herself, the truth is exposed. The film was intriguing, captivating, high action, and had a good plot. Well done.

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions. Viewed at Tinseltown using Movie Pass. ~

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.

~ Rating: 4 stars out of 5. Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions at Tinseltown using Movie Pass. ~
