Sneaks' Movie Reviews: 'Ricky' (2009)

Movie: Ricky (2009)
Director: François Ozon
Rating: 6.1/10 Stars ******'
French foreign film,  and for sure not your typical plot-line. Actually the movie isn't all that unusual, nor are the relationships or interactions in the movie except the one element of fantasy which is when the baby-boy develops wings and starts flying around. Although, were something like this were to happen, the way that the tabloids and press treat the family and situation is probably realistic to what it would be if it happened in real life. I watched this one because it was on Netflix streaming. Check this one out if you are looking for a different kind/oddball  movie.

Sneaks' Movie Reviews: 'Things We Lost in the Fire (2007)

Movie: Things We Lost in the Fire (2007)
Director: Susanne Bier
Rating: 7.2/10 Stars *******'
Another interesting film by Danish Director Susanne Bier, and this time with quite a star-studded cast! A wife and mother (Berry) loses her husband when he attempts to save a woman from domestic violence. Berry's character tracks down her deceased husband's (Duchovny) best friend, who also happens to be a struggling heroin addict who is in and out of rehab (Del Toro). This movie shows something about times of transition and change in families and how relationship dynamics change and are affected when a family member dies. Check this one out, but be prepared for heavy.

Sneaks' Movie Reviews: 'Hellboy' (2004)

My Rating: 7/10 Stars *******
Yes, I know, I am still way behind on my movies list, so once again will try to post more reviews to catch up with what I've been watching (and so many good ones too), but no more than one per day. Hellboy was quite a bit better than I expected it to be. A sci-fi action flick about Hellboy (comic book character) who, along with his team of special beings has to face monsters and villains from all time periods to save the world from destruction and demonic invasion. Definitely check this one out if you are looking for some sci-fi action/comedy to watch. Its kind of too good to miss, so just make sure you watch it at some point :) Hard to believe its an 8 year old movie already!

Sneaks' Movie Reviews: 'Snow Cake' (2006)

Director: Marc Evans
Rating: 7.8/10 Stars *******''
Hi folks, so I just realized that I am about 3 months behind on my movie reviews, so I may have to step them up a notch, but have been busier lately and doing fewer posts in general. That said....This is quite a good movie and quality acting too. Rickman's character picks up a friendly young teenaged hitch-hiker who gets killed when a semi-track t-bones his car. He goes to the girls mother (Weaver) to offer his apology and consolation to the family to find the mother is Austistic and needs his help to organize the funeral and get things sorted again. During his stay with the mother he finds he makes some friends and discovers a few things about himself and his own tormented history. Check this one out if you haven't yet.
