A – Z Challenger – Thrillers – D – Drone (2017)

A – Z Challenge – Thriller

Every Sunday between Damien, Kira and myself we are going through the alphabet and select anything from a Film, Director, Scene, Location, Item from a film or Reasons Thrillers Exist.

For this letter, I got D

My Pick


Drone Poster

Reason – For my letter I decided to pick a film that has only just be released, this thriller follows a private contracted drone pilot who must face the consequences of one of his missions when a Pakistan business man holds him family hostage as his family’s secrets get revealed. My quick sell is that this film has Sean Bean in.

Darren’s Wednesday Trip into World Cinema – Finland – Iron Sky (2012)

In my own feature on Talking Stars, I have decided to go around the world and search for the films people are missing, I will be trying to cover as many different country with this feature, so let’s fasten our seat belts, board the plane and set sail to worlds unknown.

After narrowly escaping one group of maniacs I headed back to main land Scandinavia and a fresh country, Finland. But not everything is how I remember as the news is covering a story about how the Nazis have had a secret base on the moon for years and are planning to return to Earth.

Iron Sky



Short SaleThis is a crazy adventure that is so far out there you can just sit back and enjoy the crazy concept behind it all. I feel this is one for you all to enjoy, so go and check it out.
