Wind River movie review

Alicia and I sit down to watch this independent release film about a rape murder on an Indian reservation. This slow moving crime drama suspense is worth the watch with good actor. Absolutely good writing and a decent directing job. This wasnt on our list but based on the critics comments and the directors track record of good directing and writing. I wanted us to see this unorthodox movie.

Cory Lambert is a wildlife officer who finds the body of an 18-year-old woman on an American Indian reservation in snowy Wyoming. When the autopsy reveals that she was raped, FBI agent Jane Banner arrives to investigate. Teaming up with Lambert as a guide, the duo soon find that their lives are in danger while trying to solve the mystery of the teen's death

Today Alicia and I went to the movies to see Blade Runner 2049.  We are such fans of Denis Villeneuve that I had to see this movie regardless of the reviews and ratings.  The day before we sat down and watched the original Blade Runner with the main protaganist Harrisson Ford.  This one stars Ryan Gosling as the new Blade runner hunting older replicants trying to stop a potential PR disaster with the way replicants and humans see their reality.  This is such an interesting movie.  See what we think about it.  You might be interested the way we both see it.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

On this episode, Alicia and I check out the second installment of The Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  We enjoyed the first one so much as well as a lot of other people that they made second one.   Previews show how exciting this one was going to be so we prepared for another thrill ride.

With their headquarters destroyed and the world held hostage, members of Kingsman find new allies when they discover a spy organization in the United States known as Statesman. In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.

Logan Lucky Review

On this episode of Urban Lifestyle Cafe, Alicia and I get to see the once retired Steven Soderbergh new movie "Logan Lucky".  Most people know Steven from his "Ocean" series (11, 12, 13).  With this movie goes back to his robbery, heist days with a new twist with different people.  I do like Steven's movies.  

Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway

Atomic Blonde

Sensual and savage, Lorraine Broughton is the most elite spy in MI6, an agent who's willing to use all of her lethal skills to stay alive during an impossible mission. With the Berlin Wall about to fall, she travels into the heart of the city to retrieve a priceless dossier and take down a ruthless espionage ring. Once there, she teams up with an embedded station chief to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.  It is based on a graphic novel by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart called The Coldest City

Alicia and I went to this movie ready for some kick ass spy stuff and really trying see what this movie was all about.  We saw some pretty good major actors in this movie along with Charlize Theron that help her along her trip to find the proverbial spy list with all the agents in the whole wide world.

Detroit (The movie)

Amidst the chaos of the Detroit Rebellion, with the city under curfew and as the Michigan National Guard patrolled the streets, three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel.

This episode Alicia and watch another one of the best directors working today (Kathryn Bigelow ) The director of the previous two blockbusters The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty.  Since we didn't have much history of what went on in the city of Detroit during this era.  We weren't sure if this was worth going to see  But when we found out Kathryn was director it, I knew we had to see it.  This is a very intense and contemporary movie of what is going on in our society right now.

Dunkirk Movie Review

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

If you don't know Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors.  His vision and story tellingability has fascinated me since "memento".  But proceeded from there with the Batman trilogy, inception", Intersteller, the Prestige and Insomnia the sleeper of the group.  I'm not a big fan of war movies but this was something I knew I would enjoy since Nolan had his hands on it.  He wrote the script as well.
