123movies4u Terminator: Dark Fate

Haven't been a Die Hard fan of the Franchise, but have seen the previous films. I must say compared to this Political Correct crap of a film, they were better, even Genesis was better & I didn't rate that film at all.

However the film did have some good to it as well. Here's the Pros & Cons:

Pros:

Great action sequences Great effects Badarse villain Arnold's in it (though for 1/4 of the film...)

Cons:

Too much female proper gander. Too political & shoe horned. Males portrayed as bad/weak guys & females portrayed as good strong characters. Several degrading snipes a men. I.e. female lead takes clothes of male character & leaves him behind in his boxers. She does this twice. O'Conner's character tells Carl to shut the f up. And so on. Male characters sidelined or belittled. Female empowerment overload, females stole the film & did most of the heavy lifting. Toxic femininity & misandry were rife in this sequel.

So overall, I have to say this film was a mixed bag. Sort of. But the female empowerment & political correctness is really starting to jar me off. This shoehorning in films today has gone too far. Male directors, writers & producers being forced to make a film which is both Politically Correct & portrays women as strong & men as weak. Long story short, the political message is made for equality but contradicts itself with male characters being put down & not being equal to female leads.

Overall. Another film of the golden age ruined with the Snowflake, Political Correctness movement of the 2010's... 5/10 Watch Terminator: Dark Fate on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u After the Wedding

One of those films best approached knowing as little as possible about the plot going in... But it's deft handling of character drama and intrigue-filled more melodramatic elements make for a very solid, surprising and well made film. Watch After the Wedding on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Dora and the Lost City of Gold

I used to watch this with my son when he was a kid, he's now 15. I took him to watch the screener as a joke lol. It was actually better than i expected. Although there are a few cringe worthy scenes that only little kids would enjoy, we both thought the movie was quite funny & overall entertaining. Solid 8 stars from me.

123movies4u Official Secrets

A morality tale for the 21st century, Official Secrets tells the true story of British Intelligence whistle-blower Katharine Gun who, during the immediate run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, leaked a top secret NSA memo exposing a joint US-UK illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council. The memo proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war. At great personal and professional risk, journalist Martin Bright published the leaked document in The Observer newspaper in London, and the story made headlines around the world. Members of the Security Council were outraged and any chance of a UN resolution in favour of war collapsed. But within days, Bush declared he no longer needed UN backing and invaded anyway. As Iraq descended into chaos, Katharine was arrested and charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act. Martin faced potential charges too. Their legal battles exposed the highest levels of government in both London and Washington ... Watch Official Secrets on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u 47 Meters Down: Uncaged

I sat down to watch this movie with unbiased Hope's as I do with any shark movie lover. It started off bland and I was bombarded with cheesy and vague character development. The old cliche highschool bully story and the sister or friends that stand up for the victim. The foreshadowing was the most obvious thing. Straight shot to let's sneak behind peoples backs and go cave diving all the while telling 0 people where we are going. That's not even all of it. Sharks that can somehow live in a cave so long that they evolve but didnt make it out? Yet they can literally swim backwards and are blind. The real kicker is the fact that they go off hearing instead of the pores on their snout. Oh and get this they decide to add in a few cheap jump scares to add suspense and kill off the people you were rooting for except for get this - the sisters- big surprise. The list goes on and on but I'm getting infuriated just attempting to type this review. Save your 10 dollars and go buy a cheap pair of swimming goggles if you want some real entertainment.

123movies4u Doctor Sleep

On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless-mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the "steam" that children with the "shining" produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father's legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant "shining" power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes "Doctor Sleep." Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan's own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul...

123movies4u The Current War

Considering the top quality cast that was associated with this film it really seemed to be lacking in all departments, most of the actors and actresses are some of my favourites but this film was a real let down, it was pedestrian at best, the story could have been so good, but for me it just didn't spark into life at any point, shame as the trailer looked promising, ultimately it was a little disappointing Watch The Current War on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u The Peanut Butter Falcon

Had the opportunity to attend a special screening of a truly exceptional independent film this evening. "The Peanut Butter Falcon", from the producers of "Little Miss Sunshine", this funny & fun & heartwarming story is a gem from start to finish. It's been some time since I found a story so endearing. It's about a young man with Down's Syndrome & his quest to meet his professional wrestler hero. Along the way he meets a roughneck-on-the-run (played EXCEPTIONALLY well by Shia Labeouf) who reluctantly finds redemption through his not-quite-welcome traveling companion. Still not in wide release but, with THREE previous Oscar nominees (John Hawkes, Thomas Haden Church, Bruce Dern), I have a strong suspicion this tale of sincere human bonding will gain momentum in the current era of comic book superheroes & find its way to a theater near you soon...and well worth a drive, if not.

123movies4u Zombieland: Double Tap

I just got out of Zombieland: Double Tap

I wasn't the biggest fan of the first movie, i thought it was fun, but I never felt the need to rewatch it and i promptly forgot about it until the sequel was announced.

This is laugh out loud funny at times, I know zombie apocalypse movies are not where you expect to find laughs, but this has a lot of them. There was a lot of laughter in my screening.

Woody Harrelson is as awesome as he always is, and is on top form, its always nice to see Emma Stone playing a fun role, her parts down so serious lately!! Yes, i know she is an Oscar winner and she should be playing the best parts she can get, its just nice to see her having fun in a role again, as she is a good comedic actress, I love some of her facial expressions.

Now, when I hear the name Abigail Breslin, its always the little girl from My Sisters Keeper and Little Miss Subshine who pops into my head, I always forget the has grown up!! Even though I though i though she was great in Maggie with Arnie. She is fun here too, although her character is more of a plot device than anything else. A bit of a waste of her talents.

But it was Zoey Deutch who steals the movie for me. She was such an unexpected, delightful surprise. Playing the dumb blonde is a hard act to do well without being annoying!! Generally outside of one or two performances I hate the cliche of a dumb blonde character, but she nails it. I wouldn't be surprised if this is her breakout role. Watch Zombieland: Double Tap on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Black and Blue

Go see this movie while it's still in theatres before Training Day gets rebooted for a new generation. The casting is well done and the movie is well shot and the pacing is great. The soundtrack is awesome too. This movie is not for kids. Watch Black and Blue on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

As a fan of the books for over thirty years, I couldn't wait to finally see these terror tales on the big screen. Let me just say it was definitely worth the wait. This is one seriously scary movie! From corpses, scarecrows and creepy spiders, there's plenty to make you jump and cringe. The cast was amazing and Natalie Ganzorhn can definitely scream! I would avoid letting kids see this movie because it's very creepy. I must've jumped at least ten times. To be honest I'm surprised it managed to avoid an R-rating. Rest assured this is a fun, scary fright flick. I loved every second of it. Watch Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Luce

It's rare that a watch a movie that has me on the edge of my seat with my heart pumping. Unlike most action movies (which I love), this movie grabs you with its authenticity. It didnt feel like I was watching a movie, it felt like I was watching the life of Luce and the people around him. And that's a testament not only to the superb writing and directing, but the performances of the actors involved with this film. Now I wont be surprised if this film gets ignored by the Academy, but it certainly doesn't need them to validate its brilliance. Watch Luce on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

This movie touched on literally every emotion possible, while managing to not be sappy or simplistic. It's a fabulous tale that literally anyone with a heart will be able to relate to deeply.

Lots of talented actors wasted. Act 3, probably because a competent director was brought in to pinch hit, showed some signs of being an actual movie, but this train wreck was to far gone by that point.

123movies4u The Lighthouse

I agree whole heartedly with the review that explains this as an Art Film that's interesting.....for about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, we need a reason to keep going, and they really didn't give us one. Dafoe couldn't rescue this directionless movie script and Pattison needed rescuing himself - furrowing your eyebrows every ten minutes and stink eye does not constitute acting. 2 stars for a different, albeit not enjoyable, experience. Watch The Lighthouse on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Angelina Jolie was superb as usual, Michelle pfieffer just ain't got it no more. Harris dickinson is charming, a good actor and hot eye candy. Unfortunately the lead Elle fanning really let the film down. She read her lines as though she was down the pub. She's average looking even in full make up, when she tried to be deep she came along as pretentious. She's got nothing on her sister.

The story itself is a Romeo and Juliet type of thing. Aurora came off as unlikeable how she was so quick to betray her mum. She makes it clear from the start she chooses her man and his wicked family. There wasn't a huge, complicated plot, just lots of action scenes. Too childish for an adult, too creepy for children. There are some very strange characters that resemble beasts. The celebrity cast was impressive. 2 A listers, not bad. Good for family viewing. But all in all, I wouldn't want to see this again.

It is too bad Hollywood, once again, has to change a story to fit their perceived agenda.

The real protagonist in this film married a lady with NO children who was also part of a White supremacy group.

It was AFTER they had a baby they started to move away from their previously negative lifestyle. It was the miracle of life that changed them - matured them. Watch Skin on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u The Addams Family

The intention here is obviously to introduce a new generation to the Addams Family. The film starts completely fresh and tells the origins of the entire family as a stand alone film. As someone who grew up watching the 90s films, cartoons, and re-runs I actually didn't mind this. They presented a straightforward well contained story that has plenty of jokes for both children and adults, which I laughed at enough of to stay entertained throughout the film. Watch The Addams Family on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u The Lion King

The movie is adequate, that's not good enough for this live action though. Lion King is a masterpiece story that has been celebrated for years for its emotional and timeless value. This version falls really short. The voice acting is flat the tone is wrong and there is little to no emotion felt during a very slow boring few hours.

The only highlight in my opinion is Seth Rohan and Billy Eisner. Past that? A very forgettable and hollow version of the story.

Oh and Beyoncé over sings everything. Watch The Lion King on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith

If you saw the first movie The Other Side of Heaven, you will remember the sweet spirit of the storytelling and the heart of the beautiful Tongan people. This sequel is a heartwarming reunion with more inspiration and miracles. Bring tissues. I was a weepy mess.

The film is filled with lessons for us to learn, and not just for "Mormons." While the movie will have special meaning for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, everyone can enjoy it and be touched by it. As we're told in this movie, if you wait long enough, all stories have happy endings.

You can read my full movie review at MovieReviewMom (dot com) or on my YouTube channel. Here are a few of the highlights: Christopher Gorham is absolutely fantastic. He reminds me of Chris Evans as Captain America: his goodness. Director Mitch Davis chose Christopher because "he has a very gentle soul." He learned to speak Tongan very well in the first movie and his speech coach said his accent was perfect. Did you know that he is a trained auctioneer like his grandfather?

The funeral scene was touching and heartbreaking. Abigail, the goat, in a dress. Adorable. The moment that really got me to tear up was after the storm when Nancy yelled, "Hoorah for Israel!" From then on, I went through quite a few tissues. I loved hearing the Tongan people sing often in the movie.

When they were interviewing actors to play Thomas S. Monson, the moment they first saw Russell Dixon, they knew he was the right man for the job. After the real Thomas S. Monson watched the first The Other Side of Heaven movie in 2001, he immediately asked, "When are you going to make the second movie?" John Groberg said to director Mitch Davis, "I'm not getting any younger and neither are you, so it's time!"

I always love it when you get to see pictures and video of the real people of a true story in movies. You get to see a lot of that during the rolling credits, as well as a photo update of the principle "characters" in the movie. The film was made in Fiji because the tax rebate to film there was 47 percent. There is some humor, which is always appreciated. You don't need to have seen the first movie, but it certainly helps in order to appreciate the history and significance of some of the relationships. The music is noticeably good and sweeps with emotion. Some Christian movies are heavy-handed and even cheesy at times, but this one will fill your soul and make you feel.

123movies4u A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

"A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon" is a British/French/American movie from 2019, but mostly British, directed by Will Becher and Richard Phelan and these two also worked a lot on the original (also very much recommended) Shaun the Sheep short film television series. But the big name attached to this project is probably multiple Academy Award winner Nick Park, so yes this is of course Aardman again. It took four years for them to make a sequel to the Oscar-nominated first Shaun the Sheep movie and while I am a bit skeptical that this can get in for Animated Feature again, I don't think it would be undeserving at all. This was a pretty good watch. I found it interesting that they actually were showing the English original (with the exception of translating on-screen text), but it did make sense because there is no spoken language in here and the talking by human characters is just indicated through noise that is impossible to identify, similar the way the grown-ups do it on those Charly Brown films. And yet completely different. But lets not get into detail there. I still think that as good as the animation and visual aspects may be, the audio is even better. The sound effect work, the choice of songs, the soundtrack, the noise made by humans and animals and so on, it is really all top-notch. And it elevates the comedy considerably. And there is a great deal of comedy from beginning to end. This is without a doubt the absolutely defining genre for this film and you will laugh so much here during these approximately 85 minutes. And that is mostly because of the excellent attention to detail. The key story about the alien is good (we will get to that later), but it is these minor moments and individual scenes that make it really worth the watch. With that I mean the pizza cutting off the tower-like haircut for example. Or how it is depicted as a ufo later on. Or while we are talking about pizza already, you can also include the pizza delivery boy moment at the door or when Shaun gets the pizzas to the other sheep and the dog takes it away from him only to give it to his owner then and the pizza is gone. Or during said scene when we hear the dog swear after he returns with the empty pizza box to the sheep and we see one sheep put his hands on the ears of a young sheep so he won't hear all the cussing and swearing. Or how Shaun saved one pizza from the dog, but that one is also empty. So yeah, this is basically just what I found funny in a segment that ran for under 3 minutes and there were many many other pretty funny moments, such as the dog's owner's clumsy attempts to make money with an alien attraction show.

However, the heart also won't be left out. There are some touching moments about friendship, childhoods, homesickness and so on. The moment I found most moving was when we see the alien there on the ground again because of Shaun messing up and how sad he looks that he will probably not get home to his planet and see his parents ever again. That was really touching, also to see Shaun's guilt in that scene and it proves that while the dog is not the sheep's best friend, he is still right most of the time and yet he is a friend nonetheless as we see him eventually give solace to Shaun when his friend is taken home again by his parents. Of course he is in the end and there is a happy ending obviously. Now I don't like forced unrealistic happy endings in live action movies, but here they are definitely getting away with it. No denying. It just fits in very nicely with the fun part too that in the end it is about the comedy again as we have the dog's owner accidentally going on the space journey with them when all he wanted to do was take a ****. Gotta censor that, so imdb will allow me to submit my review. Another hilarious moment there and the film sure goes out on a high note. The credits are okay, even if maybe with the different style of animation and the slightly messy Shaun song not as good as mostly everything before that. Let me think, what else can I say about this film here. Oh yes, the main antagonist. She does look a biut creepy, but really she is not evil or so. For her, her job takes her back to her childhood when nobody believed her when she met the alien's parents as a little girl and now when she stands right next to them, all she needs is a hug. She does not want to hurt anybody or so, which keeps it kids-friendly again. But before I end my review now, I want to mention two or three additional fun moments here. One would be the running gag of the alien (that looked like a dog to me a bit too) being able to copy certain sounds, which proves especially useful when they are hunted by a fairly aggressive canine who can't take a dose of its own though. But also this running gag is once again evidence of how great the sound work here was. Actually it would be nice for this film to get in at the Oscars in one of the sound categories, not that there is any chance for that to happen, but who knows maybe at the Annies. And more funny stuff included the wild ride with the alien in a farm machine or so and it's funny how Shaun looks after that completely exhausted. And how the dog takes tha blame not realizing the situation really does not look in his favor when his owner arrives. Okay I guess that would be all then. I could list a dozen more moments that made me smile, but I think I went with those that stayed most memorable for me from watching this film 1.5 days ago. It is probably subjective anyway what you will find funny the most. And will also have a lot to do with your age. The pretty young kids in my showing found mostly these scenes funny that did not impress me too much, the more in-your-face comedy you know, not the subtle approach I like. Of course, this film is also packed with all kinds of witty references to pop culture and movies that you will probably discover something new again on your fourth and fifth watch. E.T. is just one example, one of the more obvious with the moon. I will keep it at one watch for now though. In its best moments, this was a great film, overall "only" a good one. No major weaknesses though. I am also glad they kept it short and did not feel the need to stretch the film towards the 100-minute mark for marketing purposes. It is good the way it is. One for all ages. Go check it out. If you even need a recommendation that is, probably you have seen the first when considering watching this one, so you should be able to make up your mind yourself. I give it a thumbs-up with no hesitation. Watch A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u It Chapter Two

It's been a while since I've read the book or seen the first movie; so I apologize if I get some things wrong.

TLDR; The film drags on in the middle by splitting up the crew and subjecting them to meaningless jump scares. This means little character interaction (which is part of what the first movie had going for it). By the time you get to the final confrontation with Pennywise, you're just tired of the jump scares and want it to be over because you're not really rooting for the losers. And if you are, it's mostly because of what was established in the first film.

Pros:

  • The film starts off great. Somehow the scene at the bridge manages to match the iconic opening scene of the first.
  • Skarsgård is an amazing Pennywise and is creepy as hell.
  • Stan's speech in Richie's second flashback is great and actually funny.
  • Casting is, for the most part, really good. I think it was hard for some of the adult actors to find a balance between being recognizable while still showing how they've matured over time. Adult Richie is too kid-like while Bev is too mature to the point of being unrecognizable.


Cons:
  • Bowers is half-assed. Literally just used for three jump scares and nothing else. Either imply that he died and leave him out or fully use him like he is in the book as the epitome of the corruption in Derry.
  • The final form of Pennywise is unsatisfying. It's literally a clown torso on some sort of arachnid body. They needed to go full arachnid alien like it is in the book. I think this part is just difficult to translate from the book though.
  • Stan's letter at the end cheapens his death. Instead of him literally being unable to handle his fear of IT, his suicide is portrayed as a sacrifice to save the others.
  • There's next to no character development and very little meaningful interaction between characters. I blame this mostly on the middle 90 minutes where they all split up. It's totally different from the first film where they are actually a team.
  • Speaking of which, this part where they all go their separate ways to find their "tokens" is so contrived. The story literally loses all its steam due to this and makes it feel way too long.
  • All of the monster scenes except the ones with Pennywise have terrible CGI. They might be gross and/or startling but you can see them coming and they don't contribute much.
  • About 1/3 to 1/2 of the jokes just kinda fell flat.
  • The constant jump scenes and long running time just make this movie exhausting to watch. It was just a constant cycle of "pan to character, give a little backstory, jump scare, repeat".

123movies4u The Informer

If you have seen the trailer this film does what it says on the tin. It is a decent cop/bad guy film that is a little different in its storyline.

The film rattles along a decent pace and has some good scenes. There is some quite good suspense and action along the way as well.

Where the film is let down is the ending is just so clear, aside from a tiny twist, from about half way through the film and even then, when it happens it's quite a damp squib. There are also parts of the story that just don't stack up, which is a shame as it has good potential. Watch The Informer on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

Different than expected. And even with the poor reviews I would have gone to see it since it was Will Smith! Fun movie with a cool ending. Watch Gemini Man on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

There's so much potential that has just gone to waste on this movie. The script just doesn't work so they spend their whole time just shouting at each other to try and make up for it. And Mr. B just isn't ready for this kind of movie... sorry. Watch Stuber on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Abominable

The movie had a decent (predictable) premise, however the actual execution of the movie and its story has so many holes that it loses all viability. The movie lacks creativity, is full of cliche and formula storyline, and is generally a waste of time.

I went into the movie with medium expectations, came out disappointed with the movie.

123movies4u In the Shadow of the Moon

Edit: I realized only after submitting this review and getting tons of unhelpful votes that this movie has been heavily politicized and there are floods of people down-voting any positive review not for its content, but for its rating. For what it's worth, I cover the ambiguity of the movie's moral lessons in my review (that many clearly didn't read before down-voting). I happened to like that "is this really for the best?" ambiguity that ending entailed. Not once did I find this movie to be beating the viewer over the head with a political message; if anything, I found it opened one's eyes to the possibility that "for the greater good" is a flawed concept. I hate that this movie has been so politicized; as a centrist myself, I found no political slant to the movie and was surprised to hear of people wanting to boycott it. In this awful "cancel culture" waged by both sides of the political divide, I welcome movies like this that make viewers THINK. After all, if people are calling for a piece of art to be boycotted, you can be sure it has ruffled enough feathers to be a worthwhile discussion piece. So if you're a potential viewer hoping to avoid political bias, I say go into this with an open mind. I didn't find it as cut and dry as others, but then again, I'm not easily offended in the slightest.

"You're crazy," Locke says at one point when speaking to a man on one side of this moral debacle.

"I think we're both beyond the pale," the enemy replies.

THIS quote is apt, neatly laying out what I believe the true intent was for this movie. The murders committed are awful. The crimes they prevented were awful. Both sides are beyond the pale, mirroring the political divide happening around this movie's message that neither extreme can be a hero. How ironic; the controversy surrounding In the Shadow of the Moon matches its outlook. Now, on to the original review.

In the Shadow of the Moon somehow takes multiple genres and mashes them together to come up with a highly unique viewing experience that actually works. Locke is a cop on the job in 1988 when he investigates a series of mysterious murders that all happen at the same time and have multiple ties that baffle detectives and forensic investigators alike. So begins a chase over the decades involving a cop who slowly mentally degrades and a suspect who can't seem to be caught or killed. Another review stated the twist is too expected, yet they also said the movie could've been less convoluted, which sounded conflicted to me. The fact that the storyline was so complex and yet so easily understood worked well in this movie's favor, in my opinion. Because we follow the viewpoint of an investigator throughout the movie, we can slowly unravel the pieces to the puzzle alongside him so that the movie feels complete and satisfying without relying on plot holes or the convenience of confusing its audience by pulling the "because it's sci-fi!" card.

Who is Boyd Holbrook, and why the heck isn't he in more stuff? This was the first time I've seen him in anything. He did a fantastic job playing Locke. His character evolves so greatly throughout the movie, and he played each step believably and was a delight to watch. Cleopatra Coleman served her role as Rya well, but I wasn't as impressed with her usually stone-faced performance. She was believable, but she didn't stand out. Bokeem Woodbine was fantastic as Locke's partner Maddox. The sound design in this movie is outstanding, mixing distortion and music to ideally fit the mysterious but enthralling action pieces (particularly the first set of murders in '88 that are shown within the first ten minutes). The cinematography was fantastic to the point of being noticeable. This movie sucks you into its world and immerses you, its long takes allowing you time to focus on its plotline one decade at a time. In the Shadow of the Moon somehow is able to pull off multiple decades believably without relying on bashing the audience over the head with distracting nostalgia. Finally, while the movie starts out viewing these crimes as murders and ends up explaining the snowball effect leading up to them, it opens the door for philosophical questions regarding morality and time travel. I love, love, love thought-provoking movies like this.

If I have any complaints about In the Shadow of the Moon, it's that once the police thriller dissipates (as Locke becomes more deranged and isolated) and holds hands with the final sci-fi act, it slows down a little in pace. I was still glued to the screen as all story arcs began to merge and close, don't get me wrong, but the gritty city feel from the first half was so well-done I craved more and more. But looking over the movie with a critical lens, I can't see that they could've pulled it off any other way. This slowdown was necessary to the plot, and the development of both the story and the characters (particularly Locke) were handled with delicacy.

Overall, this is one Netflix movie you need to put on your queue and give a shot. Netflix has a lot of misses you have to dig through to find stuff like this. You might not love In the Shadow of the Moon as much as I did because tastes are subjective, but it is undoubtedly a well-directed and put together movie with a unique merge of genres that you owe it to yourself to try. Fantastic work, Jim Mickle. Boyd Holbrook, I'll be keeping my eye out for you in other movies. You caught my attention here. Watch In the Shadow of the Moon on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Judy

Greetings again from the darkness. It's been 80 years since THE WIZARD OF OZ was released and 50 years since Judy Garland died. So why do we still care so much? Of course the obvious reason is that, for many generations, her adventures as Dorothy Gale from Kansas marked the first time many of us kids could put ourselves in the shoes (mine weren't ruby sparkles) of a lead character in a movie. Her fantastical journey ignited our imaginations and whisked us away to fight witches and flying monkeys, while making wonderful friends in a corn patch and enchanted forest. Oh, and that voice! However, there is another side to this coin. Judy's story is also an example of the dark and tarnished side of Hollywood ... she pulled back more than one curtain.

Renee Zellweger (Oscar winner for COLD MOUNTAIN, 2003) stars as Judy Garland, and her performance will likely put her in line for her fourth Oscar nomination. The film basically covers the last year of Judy's life, and director Rupert Goold (TRUE STORY, 2015) is working from a script by Tom Edge adapted from Peter Quilter's stage play, "End of the Rainbow". There is no Lollipop Guild here. Instead, the harsh realities of Judy's life are explored. The film opens with Judy and her kids, Joe and Lorna, performing on stage ... and then being unceremoniously denied a room at a nearby luxury hotel. See, Judy's career is in a bad way (admittedly undependable and uninsurable) - as is her health. She is broke, has no home, and offers for roles or performances have dried up. She ends up at her ex-husband Sid Luft's (Rufus Sewell) home, which after some former-spouse bickering, is where the kids stay.

With no other real prospective gigs, Judy accepts an offer from Bernard Delfont (Michael Gambon) to perform at his Talk of the Town theatre in London. Most of the film covers her time in London, and the challenges for all involved. She's 46 years old in the winter of 1968, and though her voice no longer carries the sublime purity of those early years, Judy still has incredible stage presence and an ability to connect with the audience. The challenges occur for her assigned assistant Rosalyn Wilder (who served as a consultant on the film, and is played here by rising star Jessie Buckley), as well as Judy herself. She misses her kids, and is battling loneliness and an addiction to pills - causing her to rarely eat or sleep. When her "friend" (and fifth husband) Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock) shows up, Judy's attitude perks up, but her already questionable dependability falters.

Flashbacks to Judy's teenage years at MGM are used to portray how the studio and industry took control of her body, soul and career. Watching studio head Louis B Mayer (Richard Cordery) bully young Judy (played by newcomer Darci Shaw) by pretending to be a father figure while keeping her weight in line with a diet of cigarettes, diet pills, and soup, is just painful. These scenes, including those with young Judy's frequent co-star Mickey Rooney, help us understand why she was in such a state by the time she hit London. Ms. Zellweger embodies the blend of frailty and determination and talent, as well as the insecurities that simultaneously drove Judy and held her back. Of course, few singers have ever possessed the vocal talent of Judy, but Zellweger admirably brings the appropriate strain and pain to the songs she sings for the movie, including "By Myself" and "The Trolley Song".

Born Frances Ethel Gumm, Judy Garland first hit the stage at age 2, and never experienced a "normal" childhood or traditional relationship. Despite her immense talent, she was never able to find peace with the pressures of performing. Years of abuse led to an early death, not long after she finished her London run. The film never backs away from the tragic story, but also allows one of the brightest stars of an era to shine through. For those who only know Judy as that homesick girl from Kansas, or maybe also as the rosy-cheeked youngster on the Trolley in the holiday favorite MEET ME IN ST LOUIS (directed by her future husband Vincente Minnelli), there is likely a shock factor in seeing the broken icon in middle age. The film also deals with that always-present bond she had with her audience, especially with the gay community - although a certain sequence of the film seems quite improbable.

For a film like this to work (it was not sanctioned by Judy's daughter Liza Minnelli), it all rides on the lead performance. Renee Zellweger beautifully captures both the tragic essence and the stunning talent of the late 1960's Judy Garland, an iconic and revered entertainment figure. The film allows us to understand the lifelong mistreatment and heartbreak of this woman, as well as the strength and joy she received while performing live. Balancing the "early" Judy with the "later" Judy was a brilliant way of bringing her life full circle. Ms. Zellweger's performance goes so much deeper than singing on stage ... she embodies the insecurity and frailties of a woman who was never afforded the opportunity to live her own life.

NOTE: There was a 2001 TV mini-series entitled "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows", based on daughter Lorna Luft's memoir, in which Judy Davis (lip-synching to Ms. Garland's songs) delivered an impressive and Emmy winning performance. Watch Judy on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Ad Astra

I was disappointed by this movie. It fails to deliver a coherent character arc for the protagonist despite being a character based film. It attempts to have multiple subplots that end in simplistic and mutually contradictory ways. If you can't write an ending that ties up all subplots in a satisfactory manner, drop some of the subplots.

The visual effects and overall visual presentation in this movie are good, but there are also scenes that feel like they're there so the film can be falsely presented as an action blockbuster in marketing. There are overlooked details, like the gravity on the Moon, so obvious that they ruin the immersion in the movie.

Overall, this film had potential, and credit has to be given for trying to create a more complex film in today's age of mass-market reboots and sequels. However, it failed to do so, and several scenes scream studio interference (not a surprise in hindsight, given the Mouse delaying the release of the movie after a hostile takeover of 20th Century Fox).

123movies4u Annabelle Comes Home

This movie is unoriginal, the plot is almost non existent, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are not a part of the main story, the scares are all the same, everything's in the same house, the comedy is predictable. I could go on but you get the point. I guess the acting wasn't that bad. After watching it I thought it had a PG(12+) rating because of the lack of gore or actual horror happening but it actually is rated R(16+) for some reason.. Also the Annabelle doll itself isn't scary at all so how they managed to make 3 movies based on it is beyond me Watch Annabelle Comes Home on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Rambo: Last Blood

I saw some of the reviews of this movie. One particular critic called it "a laughable Trumpian fantasy". I doubt they ever actually watched the movie and this is just the fashionably offended looking for something to complain about. The movie is an action masterpiece.

Formulaic? Yes but the sheer grit and psychotic rage emanated by John Rambo in this film is a step above what we have seen from him in the past. It's a culmination of every injustice, every disappointment and every cauterized bullet wound channelled into revenge for one too many unwanted grievance. The camel's back has broken and it is blood that will pour through the flood gates. If it's an action revenge thriller you want, that is exactly what you will get with this film. 10/10 Watch Rambo: Last Blood on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.

123movies4u Child's Play

First of all, if you want to watch this film do not watch the trailer because it spoils major death scenes and shows a majority of the ending if this film. The acting in this film was surprisingly actually really good. Both Aubrey Plaza and Gabriel Bateman did great jobs as their characters. The biggest one that shocked me was Mark Hamill as Chucky. When it was first released that he was going to be voicing Chucky I was hesitant but now seeing the film he actually did a great job. Although, I do wish they did the same thing in the original movie where they had a different voice actor before Chucky turned evil. Same thing with the actual doll because it looked way too creepy for any kid to actually be interested in buying it. But honestly, when he does turn evil the look does work better than the original doll. The cinematography, done by Brendan Uegama, in this film was just outstanding. You could easily tell that the lighting in each shot was supposed to look that way and helped set the tone and mood for what was about to go down or just to make Chucky look creepier than he already does. One thing I didn't like though is what they did with Chucky's origin. Now, this is a SLIGHT SPOILER so if you don't want to be slightly spoiled than just skip over this part. Instead of just having a serial killer they just had an employee who got fired for daydreaming corrupted Chucky. It's so dumb and it should have just stayed with the original way. The music that was composed by Bear McCreary was amazing and like the cinematography helped with the scene. The ending makes no sense but hey at least it sets up for a sequel right. In the end, Child's Play (2019) is actually better than the original with some parts and worse with others. Definitely check this movie out. Watch Child's Play on 123movies4u in HD Quality Stream.
