Accident Man
2018 . Action, Crime, Thriller

image8

This is a solid action film, with an all-star cast of martial artists. You have Scott Adkins, Ray Park, Michael Jai White, and Amy Johnston. All four know how to fight and it shows, plus you don't need stunt actors to step in, so you can shoot the action without 30 edits per second. The movie is peppered with dark humor, and although the plot is somewhat predictable it still has a couple of surprises. Overall, it's a very entertaining film with well-choreographed and executed fight scenes and plenty of over-the-top violence.

Speed
1994 . Action, Adventure, Crime

image8

Phenomenal movie! The plot may seem simple and predictable but it does have a few twists and turns that you may not see coming. Keanu Reeves proves once again that he can do action, after Point Break. It is pretty impressive how much of the stunt work he did, considering CGI was at its absolute infancy, yet you see some wide shots where it's clearly Keanu being a badass. Sandra Bullock is also great in this movie. She provides a lot of comedic relief, which balances well with the action. Jeff Daniels and Dennis Hopper are outstanding additions to the cast that elevates the movie to the next level. Definitely a 90s action classic, with plenty of quotable dialogue that is well worth the watch. "What do you do? What do you do!?!"

Reservoir Dogs
1991 . Crime, Drama, Thriller

image10

My favorite Tarantino movie hands down. The dialogue during the dinner scene is a work of art. That is modern Shakespeare. And who could have predicted Michael Madsen would be such a good dancer, jajajaja. Honestly that scenes was ridiculous. It is so well filmed, scripted and acted that it tricks your mind into believing you saw the chopping of the ear on screen. The cast is outstanding, the writing is phenomenal, the directing, editing, scoring, everything is A++++. A movie classic and a must see.

The Fish & Chips Shop Beach
Barcelona

They have been actively expanding and by now have multiple locations throughout the city. However, I find the beach location the best, for the simple reason that you can buy takeaway and enjoy it while sitting at the beach. Value for money you cannot go wrong. The fish is of good quality and the portions are very reasonable. Although this is more of a British Classic, it works well for the beachgoer.

Ciutat Comtal
Barcelona

This is a tapas place, and although it can be considered a tourist destination, it is also legit. Often times tourist traps offer crappy food at a premium price, but this one is true to its culinary roots. The selection of both cold and hot tapas is very extensive and of premium quality and taste. If you go at prime time, expect to wait for 30+ minutes to be seated since it does pack out. However, if you are traveling with a group it is a perfect place to share some tapas with friends and family at a reasonable price.

Restaurant Can Culleretes
Barcelona

image10

This restaurant is amazing for 2 reasons. 1. It is one of the oldest restaurants in Spain, opening its doors in 1786. The restaurant itself is a historical capsule with ornate interior tiles, murals, and pictures of historical people that have eaten at the restaurant throughout the years. 2. The food is true to traditional Catalan cuisine. It feels like you are going to your grandmother's house. The kitchen still follows the recipes of old. You will not be disappointed. Overall, it is a must-try if you are in Barcelona. Make sure you look it up in Google Maps since it is hidden in an unassuming street within the labyrinth of the Gothic Quarter.

Charade
1963 . Comedy, Mystery, Romance, Thriller

image9

An absolute classic and one of Cary Grant's last films. It is an extremely fun film, that incorporates action, comedy, suspense, mystery, and crime into a well-balanced and fast pace film. The movie includes a very impressive cast of heavy hitters from the 50s and 60s and despite the age gap Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn have phenomenal chemistry on screen. For the longest time, I thought this was a Hitchcock film, but it is not. However, if you like the suspense and mystery of a Hitchcock film, then you will definitely not be disappointed. Overall, it is a fantastic film with a great cast, outstanding score, cinematography, and a very well-written plot that is filled with twists, and misdirections that will keep you guessing till the end.

The Last Mercenary
2021 . Action, Comedy

image6

It was a decent movie. There are a few references to prior Jean-Claude Van Damme Movies, so if you are a fan you will be able to spot these. Considering he is 60 years old it is still pretty amazing to see him move, that being said this movie is a lot more tamed than his earlier work, and the action is lacking at times. Overall it was a fun movie to watch on Netflix if you are a fan of JCVD, but it won't leave a lasting impact.

True Romance
1993 . Action, Thriller, Crime, Romance

Full Disclosure I am a huge Tarantino fan. That being said, I think Tony Scott did a pretty decent job translating Tarantino's Script into the big screen. Although you can only imagine what it could have been if Tarantino was in the driver's seat. The casting is ridiculous. Christian Slater (whatever happened to him?) and Patricia Arquette do a great job. You also get a ton of A-list actors like Samuel L Jackson, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, James Gandolfini, Gary Oldman, Val Kilmer, Dennis Hopper, etc. The casting alone is absolutely nuts. I highly recommend a watch it has a great balance of violence and comedy along with witty dialogue and phenomenal character performances. Not to mention a killer soundtrack P.S. This movie also gave Tarantino the funds and creditability to get Reservoir Dogs made, jajajajajajaja. So pretty much a win-win scenario in my book.

2021 . Action, Crime, Thriller

I thought the movie was pretty good. Obviously, it is getting harder and harder to top the previous film with over-the-top ridiculousness, however, I believe they managed to deliver. They bring back almost everyone from previous films Including Jordan Brewster, which was done in a fairly convincing manner. They also bring John Cena as Not-Dwayne Johnson, in a Not-Hobbs role, jajajajajaja. All that being said I was a bit disappointed with John Cena's character. He played it too seriously, which was a shame because he has great comedic timing, and considering the material he could have gone the more cheeky route, but overall if you need to replace The Rock it was a good choice. It was also great to see Helen Mirren, Lucas Black, Shad Moss, Kurt Russel (could have had a bigger role), Sung Kang, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham, and Don Omar come back for the fun. The plot is a bit of a mess, to say the least, they tried giving a bunch of out of nowhere backstories, in order to make the new character of John Cena fit, which seems bizarre considering this is Fast 9. They love to talk about the importance of family throughout all the movies, and I guess it makes perfect sense because this family has sooooo many skeletons and no one is very honest with each other. The return of Sung Kang was also a bit of "okay" let's just go with that type of moment. Then again you don't watch this movie for the plot, but for the action and the sheer ridiculousness of it, and on that basis they more than deliver. I really enjoyed it for what it is. I am also glad to see that they are bringing the franchise to an end while it is still on a high because it seems like they are running out of ideas and it would be a shame to see the franchise tank and fall off a cliff. Definitely looking forward to the grand 2 part finale, and I can't wait to see how they bring it to an end. Still remember going to the theater to watch the first one, and I have said it is always an adrenaline rush.

Hollywood Homicide
2003 . Action, Adventure, Comedy, Thriller

image7

For some reason, this movie usually gets bad reviews, but it is not a bad movie at all. It doesn't have much action but it has a decent level of comedy. I personally found Harrison's ford deliveries hilarious and he has some great good oneliners. Overall it's a fun movie that will keep you entertained with a decent crime plotline and some good action sequences, primarily at the end. Both Harrison Ford and Josh Harnett give it their all and show good on-screen chemistry. I recommend this movie as a fun entertaining movie for a Sunday afternoon.

The Suicide Squad
2021 . Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Comedy

image8

Based on what I have read regarding the 2016 Suicide Squad, I think this is closer to what Ayer had in mind before the all-knowing studio heads got involved. That being said this is what I was expecting when I originally heard a Suicide Squad Movie was being made. The plot is absolute garbage, to say the least, but if you ignore that and focus on the action, character choices, humor, character interactions, and outstanding on-screen chemistry you will not be disappointed. I had read very little about his movie before watching it, after DC's endless disappointments, my expectations were below zero for this film, but I have to say it was amazing. Gunn definitely earns his R-rating. There are plenty of great actors in the movie, and Gunn's choice of characters to include are phenomenal and add to the fun. Including Idris Elba as clearly Deadshot, but not Deadshot. Sylvester Stallone does a great job as King Shark and the fact he took the role, shows he has a sense of humor. Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn is perfect in this movie and comes to prove that the character of Harley Quinn is good in small doses and as part of a larger cast. However, the best character/actor is John Cena in my opinion. He steals every scene he is in. He is absolutely hiiiiilarious. His sense of humor is amazing, Mr. Peace, jajajajajaja. Overall, you will not be disappointed. Hopefully, the studio heads of DC, learn that the less they are involved the better for everyone. If they want to justify their salaries, they can go make coffee or get lunch, jajajajajajaja.

Six Days Seven Nights
1998 . Adventure, Action, Comedy, Romance

image7

Not a groundbreaking movie by any means, but it is incredibly enjoyable. The movie has a little of everything. It has action, adventure, comedy, romance, and a few thrills. However, what I like the most about this movie is Harrison Ford's cynical humor. This is by far the best part of the movie. His humor is absolutely phenomenal in this movie. I have to say Harrison Ford and Anne Heche have great on-screen chemistry and she does well setting up Harrison Ford for all the jokes. I recommend this movie as an easy watch for a Sunday afternoon. Even though you will most likely anticipate the plot you won't be disappointed and will be thoroughly entertained.

Russian Ark
2002 . Drama, Fantasy, History, Mystery

This movie is wonderful, it is a phenomenal piece of filmmaking. However, as much as I liked the movie, the making-off is just that much better. The movie is very good and it manages to put together a very compelling docu-drama. The acting is great, the costumes are fantastic, and the overall plot is well executed. This movie was filmed in 1 single take (yeap you heard that right), the logistics, and direction required to make it happen were outstanding. They managed to get it on the third take, which made it or break it at that point since they couldn't keep the museum closed for any longer. I highly recommend you watch the movie, and then watch the behind-the-scenes. If you are a movie buff you will not be disappointed.

Das Boot
1981 . Drama, History, War

image10

WOW!!!! This movie is amazing. Probably the best submarine movie ever made. The movie is like 3 hours long, but it goes by very quickly. I highly recommend watching it in German with subtitles, in order to truly experience the tone and emotional drama of the movie. Even though this movie follows a German Submarine crew during WWII, they did a great job of keeping politics out of the equation and really focusing on the lives of these soldiers living in a tin can in the middle of the war, not knowing what fate will bring. I believe you really get a sense of what it must have been like. The storytelling is wonderful, and you really get to know these soldiers on a personal level, which makes your investment in the movie that much higher. You may be surprised by the ending, but I think in the end it serves to show that war is war and in the end, there are no winners. If you like war movies and submarines, and phenomenal filmmaking you HAVE TO WATCH this movie!
