    Simon Marwan: One plus one, does it make one? 

    I am completely stunned, I literally have chills from this...

    Denis Villeneuve has given us this masterpiece (2010) that is among the best of the decade. Prisoners (2013), Enemy (2013), Sicario (2015), Arrival (2016), and Blade Runner 2049 (2017) are all among the best if not some of the best films of the decade!

    Boyd 'Bible' Swan: Wait until you see it. 

    Norman Ellison: See what? 

    Boyd 'Bible' Swan: What a man can do to another man.

    This is a fantastic war film and a masterpiece of the genre and maybe film itself. The gritty unforgiving nature of the violence and cruelty displayed on screen maybe to much for some but it’s necessary. 

    Sergeant Davis: Thought you were dead, Collier. 

    Wardaddy: The Devil watches over his own.

    The characters are all well written and…

    This film is phenomenal! It’s not an action adventure of the type this genre usually dishes out, but it’s still an adventure.  

    Brad Pitt gives one of the years best performance for the second time this year!! This is a slow film but worth every minute, but I understand it won’t appeal to those who don’t go in for something this pondering. 

    Pitt’s character goes out into the void searching for his Dad, answers to unsolvable questions, and to face himself. The result is a stunning piece of Science fiction that feels way more reality than fiction. This is one for the decade.

    ★★★½

    Dang Dennis Quaid was great.

    Great and moving story about the life story of Bart Millard and the making of the chart-topping I Can Only Imagine.


    The film flows well with a pretty decent script and performances, especially Dennis Quaid and Trace Atkins.

    Probably the best film I’ve seen from the Christian  movie genre.

    The Director’s Cut


    This was a better film with all the added scenes and extended conversations. This felt more fleshed out and so did the characters and their motivations, as well as their struggles. 

    The filmmaking craft of this film is some of the best of the year and I really like it. I like it more than the first time seeing it but I don’t absolutely love it. Even though I absolutely love parts of it. Still one of…
