(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-

What’s On NOW!?!: ALFRED HITCHCOCK’s “FRENZY” (1972)!!!

One Of My All-Time-Faves…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK‘s

FRENZY

…Remains As Potent Today As It Was When I First Saw It More Than 20-Years Ago.

In Short…

I. LOVE. THIS. FLICK.

Period.

:D

Released In 1972…

FRENZY

…Was The First Film From ALFRED HITCHCOCK To Receive An “R” Rating.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…When You See This Flick, You’ll Understand WHY They Saddled It So.

FRENZY

…Stars…

JON FINCH

&

BARRY FOSTER

&

ALEC McCOWEN

…And Was, Of Course, Directed By “The Master Of Suspense” Himself…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

:)

The Gist Of The Flick Is As Follows:

The “Necktie Murderer” Continues To Strike Fear Deep Into The Heart Of London…

…And A Man (FINCH) Is Desperately In Search Of The Real Killer (FOSTER), As The Police (McCOWEN) Are Already Convinced He (FINCH) Is The Murderer!

:D

I Don’t Honestly Know How Many Times I’ve Seen…

FRENZY

…But It’s A Metric-Ass-Ton Of Times, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

While I Love Most Flicks From ALFRED HITCHCOCK

FRENZY

…Ranks Right At The Tip-Tip-Tippy-Top For All-Time Faves!

To ME…

FRENZY

…Has Been Too Often Overlooked And Is GREATLY UNDERRATED.

Period.

In Fact…

…I’d Take Watching It OVER The Bulk Of Other Such Wonderful HITCHCOCK Flicks.

I’ve Always Felt…

FRENZY

…Was Simply Too Cool, All The While Other Folks Totally Dismissed It.

It’s Truly A Forgotten Classic.

Everyone Remembers…

PSYCHO

&

VERTIGO

&

REAR WINDOW

&

THE BIRDS

(just to name a few)

…But You Rarely, If EVER, Hear Anyone Mention…

FRENZY

…And I Think That’s A Shame.

FRENZY

…Is A Wonderfully Made Motion Picture…

…And It Deserves MUCH MORE LOVE Than It Generally Garners.

I (totally) Love It.

You (should) Love It.

We All (except for you) Love It.

;)

If You’ve Not Seen This One, My Peeps…

…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give It A Go!

I Do Promise…

…If You Enjoy Supremely SUSPENSEFUL Flicks…

…With A Healthy Touch Of Dry Whit…

…A Wonderful Cast…

…And…

…Of Course…

…Classic Storytelling At Its Very VERY BEST…

…Then A Flick Like…

FRENZY

…May Be EXACTLY What The Ole Doctor Ordered!

As I Said Before…

…It Is A Truly UNDERRATED Flick…

…And It’s VERY DESERVING Of Your Sweet-Sweet-LOVIN’!!!

;)

Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

Work Hard…

…Play Harder!

:D
