Synopsis

Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts – but the victims aren’t always the ones you’d expect.

5. The Shining (1980)

Synopsis

Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block.

Top 5 Must-Watch Movies by the End of this Summer (Guest Post)

The favorite season of many is almost gone, paving its way to a golden brown fall. And what better way is to fight the re-emerging autumnal nostalgia that slowly but surely closes in on us but to head to a local movie theatre and see what they have on the menu? After all, the entire year of 2017 is basically a huge cinematic buffet – according to the sounding announcements we have all witnessed throughout the year at least. Still, there are some headlines that have just premiered or are expected to make grand debuts soon, so we’ve decided to choose the freshest 5 we believe are the must-watch movies by the end of this summer.

 

#1 Annabelle: Creation

Genre: horror/thriller/fantasy

Release date: 8/11/2017

 

The horror fans are already thinking highly of the second installment of Annabelle (the first one didn’t go so well), which is taking place in The Conjuring universe. Rest assured this one is definitely worthy of your time, especially if you’re into creepy themes and you still think that Chucky rules. Annabelle: Creation takes place 12 years after the horrid accident dollmaker and his wife had when they suffered a tragic loss of a daughter. Now, they decide to give a shelter to a nun taking care of the group of local orphans. After all, Annabelle is safely locked away so she can’t hurt anyone…can she?

 

 

#2 The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Genre: comedy/action

Release date: 8/18/2017

 

With stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds and Gary Oldman we believe there’s simply no room for failure. The Hitman’s Bodyguard bursts with action and jokes that entice a genuine laugh. It might not be an Academy award material but it’s still pretty fun to watch, especially in the summer, when hard subjects and dramas are certainly to be avoided by all means. So we warmly suggest you this story of a bodyguard who is supposed to protect a hitman who needs to testify in International Court of law because we’re sure you’ll have a blast.

 

 

#3 Dunkirk

Genre: historical

Release date: 7/21/2017

 

According to IMDb, this is the first film from Christopher Nolan that is actually based on historical facts. It takes place during the WWII, and it tells the story about allied soldiers from Belgium, the UK, and France being evacuated while they are completely surrounded by Germans. And we can all agree there’s no better way to wake up from that heat-caused, summer slumber than being shaken up by a strong story about sacrifice and survival.

 

 

#4 Spider-Man: Homecoming

Genre: sci-fi, adventure, action

Release date: 7/7/2017

 

We get to meet Peter Parker as a teenager while he tries to align his high school life with the one belonging to his alter-ego, Spider-man. On the other hand, the city of New York is threatened once again by new and stronger evildoers so the Spider-man must come to the rescue! It’s needless to say this is a great new achievement from Marvel Studio that is perfectly suitable both for younger and older audience.

 

 

#5 Tulip Fever

Genre: Romance

Release date: 9/1/2017

 

Now, this is something to look forward, especially if you’re an incurable romantic and crave the times when online dating services didn’t exist. The trailer promises everything: a gorgeous orphaned girl who is practically sold to a wealthy but old merchant who hires a young artist to paint his young but miserable wife in the 17th century when the entire city of Amsterdam got caught in the tulip obsession (hence the title). Keep in mind that Alicia Vikander is already an Academy award winner so we’re really expecting her to give us all she’s got in this one!

If you have an entire cake to yourself, and you know for certain that no one else will eat it nor see you eat it, would you still cut it up and serve it on a plate? Or would you dig in with a shovel? (Assume nothing bad happens to your body as a result of consuming said healthy cake)

I would eat the entire thing with a shovel even if everyone I know was watching… Kidding I don’t really like cake that much…

Top 5 Movies That Deal With Dementia (Guest Post)

Movies that deal with real suffering of ordinary individuals are usually those that stick in our minds for years to come. Many older actors who have portrayed people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia have gone on to win Academy Awards or nominations, and will forever be remembered in the history of cinema. The following is a list of some of the best films on memory loss and how it affects everyone involved.

5.   The Savages (2007)

Starring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Savages is a touching story about two siblings who reunite for the sake of their father who’s suffering from dementia. This tragic comedy yielded some wonderful performances and nominations, including Laura Linney’s Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). Tamara Jenkins was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

  1. Aurora Borealis (2006)

An indie movie released without much anticipation, Aurora Borealis is a story about a grandfather, (Donald Sutherland), who suffers from dementia and needs more care than his wife (Louise Fletcher) can provide. They hire a home health aide (Juliette Lewis) to assist, and enlist the help of their grandson (Joshua Jackson) to provide proper care to Sutherland’s character who believes he can see the Northern Lights through his window. Although Aurora Borealis has never received much praise from critics or moviegoers, it is one of those films where Donald Sutherland steals the show for the millionth time.

  1. Age Old Friends (1989)

John Cooper, played by Hume Cronyn, wonderfully portrays an elderly man who chooses to live in a retirement home to preserve his independence and not be a burden on his daughter, played by his real-life daughter, Tandy Cronyn. He becomes friends with Michael (Vincent Gardenia), who is diagnosed with dementia, and is faced with a tough decision when his daughter wants him to come live with her. Should he leave a rigid retirement home and go live with his daughter or should he stay to help out a friend in need?

  1. Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch (2001)

Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch is based on a book by John Bayley and a true story of English author Iris Murdoch’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. This film will forever be remembered by its outstanding cast and its breath-taking performances. Jim Broadbent, who plays Bayley in his later years, won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. Judi Dench and Kate Winslet both landed Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for their portrayals of Murdoch in her older and younger years.

  1. The Notebook (2004)

The Notebook is certainly the most famous of all the movies on this list, and for a good reason. Based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel of the same title, The Notebook might not have received as much praise from the critics as it did from the audiences around the world, but it will forever be adored as one of the most romantic movies of its generation that break down both young and senior dating and everlasting love that knows no boundaries. Featuring Gena Rowlands and James Garner, The Notebook tells a story of a loving elderly husband of Allie who is trying to rekindle her memories destroyed by Alzheimer’s disease. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play the couple when they were younger and their chemistry is out of this world.
