(ALMOST) Random (MIDNIGHT) Movie Mention: “UNKNOWN” (2011)

UNKNOWN (2011)

UNKNOWN

…Stars MY MAIN MAN Himself…

LIAM NEESON

:D       :D       :D

…And Stars…

AIDAN QUINN

JANUARY JONES

DIANE KRUGER

&

FRANK Skeletor LANGELLA

:D       :D

It’s Also Produced By “Mr. UBER PRODUCER“…

JOEL SILVER

:D

Alright, My Peeps…

…Check-It-Out…

LIAM NEESON

Is

Dr. MARTIN HARRIS

…He Thinks?

But, Is He Really?

Well…

…We Really DON’T KNOW.

((wink wink))

You See, Shortly Into The Flick, He’s In A Car Crash.

He Hit His Head Hard.

He’s Now In The Hospital.

And, He’s Just Awakened From A Four (4) Day Coma.

He’s In Berlin.

He Doesn’t Speak German.

He Has No Official Identification.

He Might Know Some People, But We’re Not Really Sure.

He Just Remembers That He’s Dr. MARTIN HARRIS And That His Wife ((played by JANUARY JONES)) Doesn’t Know Where He Is, Nor What Has Happened.

He Then Remembers She Should Be At The Hotel They Were Originally Going To Stay In, And He’s Got To Go Find Her.

BUT…

…When He Does Get To The Hotel, And He Does Find His Supposed Wife…

…SHE DOESN’T CLAIM TO KNOW HIM AT ALL.

And Now Another Man ((played by AIDAN QUINN)) Shows-Up And Says That HE’s ActuallyDr. MARTIN HARRIS!!!

W.T.F.

?!?!?!?!?!?

And NOW The Flick Really REALLY Begins!!!

:D     :D     :D     :D

UNKNOWN

…Is Really A MUCH BETTER Flick Than A Lot Of Folks May Have Told You.

It Just Had The Bad Luck Of Coming Out After LIAM NEESON‘s Surprise Mega-Hit-Flick…

TAKEN

:(

UNKNOWN

…Is Fun.

It’s Exciting.

It’s Suspenseful.

It’s Clever.

It Was Good Enough For Me To Wanna Buy It, My Peeps.

I’d Say That’s PLENTY Good.

;)

Some People Told Me “UNKNOWN” Was Slow In Too Many Places, Which Ultimately Hurt The Overall Presentation.

To Those People, I Simply Say…

YOURE IMPATIENT!”

Dammit.

I Thought This Was A Classically Paced Thriller.

I Could EASILY See ALFRED HITCHCOCK Directing Something Like This.

HITCHCOCK Loved The Whole Idea Of The MISTAKEN IDENTITY Caper.

I Think He Would Have Relished In Directing This Flick.

Or, At Least, A Flick Like It.

I’m NOT Saying “UNKNOWN” Is The Greatest Flick Ever, My Peeps.

I AM Saying “UNKNOWN” Is A Lot Better Than You May Realize.

It’s Also Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than People Gave It Credit For.

It’s Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than “TAKEN” Had.

And That Is A FACT.

Period Period.

If You Haven’t Seen “UNKNOWN” Yet, Give It A Go, Kids.

If You’ve Seen It Once, And Didn’t Bother Going Another Round…

…Please…

…Do Yourself The Favor Of Checking-It-Out AGAIN.

It’ll Only Cost You 113-Minutes Of Your Life.

A Drop In The Bucket, Ya Know?!

;)

:D       :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN” (1994)

So, Yeah, Kiddies…

…The Title Of This Piece Really Says It All.

Today, I’m Going To Talk About A Flick…

…That’s A Personal Favorite.

By A Show Of Hands…

…How Many Of Y’all Have Seen..

MARY SHELLEY‘s

FRANKENSTEIN

(1994)

…Featuring…

KENNETH BRANAGH

(As "VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN" AND As The Director/Producer Of The Flick)

&

ROBERT De NIRO

(As "THE FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER" aka "THE CREATURE")

??? ??? ???

Okay…

…Well…

…Not Many Of Y’all…

…But More Of Y’all Than I Expected.

So I’ll Take That As A Good Thing.

;)

KENNETH BRANAGH

…Does A Truly Wonderful Directing Job On This One.

The Story Is Much Truer To The Original “FRANKENSTEIN” Works…

…And This Version Is NOT For The Squeamish.

BRANAGH Totally Goes For Our Jugular In His Adaptation Of The Classic Story.

Blood.

Guts.

Sweat.

Tears.

More Blood And Guts.

Etc.

Etc.

KENNETH BRANAGH

…Likes To Keep This One Rolling…

…Hardly Giving The Audience A Chance To Breathe Before Something Else Crazy Happens That Leaves Us All Aghast!

But The Crown Jewel Of This Film…

…IS…

ROBERT De NIRO

…As…

THE CREATURE

.Period.

He’s Hideous.

He’s Mean.

He’s Tough.

And He’s Lonely.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…It’s A Lethal Combination.

Eventually…

THE CREATURE

…Realizes He Will NEVER Be Accepted Into The Community, Or By The Human Race As A Whole.

That He Will Forever Be Looked Upon As The Horrid Creation He Is.

And Then…

…Of Course…

…He Sets Out On A Quest Of REVENGE Against…

DR. FRANKENSTEIN

…Along With His Family…

…Friends…

…Whatever…

…And By Golly Jiminy Gee…

THE CREATURE

…Takes Them Out.

All Of Them.

He Doesn’t Discriminate.

Man.

Woman.

Doesn’t Matter.

For…

THE CREATURE

…In His Mind…

…He Is Extracting Proper JUSTICE…

…Against The Mad Doctor.

"WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN?!"

…You Quickly Ask.

Well…

…I Ain’t Gonna Tell Ya.

There Shall Be NO Spilling Of The Proverbial Beans By Me.

You Just Have To Watch.

;)

I’m Now The Proud Owner Of This Flick In An AMAZING Blu-ray Format.

The Picture Quality Is WONDERFUL.

The Sounds Are So Very REAL.

The Transfer Into The Blu-ray Format Is Simply BREATHTAKING.

I’ve Loved This Flick For A Very VERY Long Time…

(or so it seems, though time is whizzing by so so fast)

…And I’m Very Proud To Have It In My Collection.

KENNETH BRANAGH

ROBERT De NIRO

…Totally Went For It With This One.

It’s Dark.

It’s Bloody.

It’s Dirty.

It’s Damned Near Insane.

BUT BUT BUT…

…It’s A Total Keeper Keeper, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

:D

I’m Not Saying All Of You Will Like This.

What I’m Saying Is…

…I REALLY LIKE IT…

…And Perhaps After Reading This, Some Of Y’all Will Wanna See It…

…Or See It Again.

I Consider This One A True-Blue FORGOTTEN CLASSIC.

And I’m Very Proud To Be Blogging About It With Y’all, Today.

MARY SHELLEY‘s

FRANKENSTEIN

…Is Dark And Brooding And Disgusting…

…And All At The Same Time.

Trust Me, Kiddies…

…It’s VERY WORTHY Of Your Viewership.

So Why Not Give It A Go?!

AND…

…If You Have Access To This One In The Blu-ray Format…

…By All Means….

…SNATCH THAT PUPPY UP!!!

It’s VERY Worth It.
