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

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.

Throwback Thursday – Jurassic Park

Throwback Thursday

We all like to look back on certain moments of our past and this feature gives us a chance to look at older film, well films that are from the pre-2000s.

My choice is the first is the first film I saw at the cinema Jurassic Park.

I have always felt this is a movie everyone should see once because it is a masterpiece in special effects, storytelling and just being able to scare us. i hope you all have seen it and if you haven’t well it should be next on your list.

Darren’s Wednesday Trip into World Cinema – Iceland – Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre (2009)

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.

Well I set sail once again leaving Norway behind I headed North to Iceland, I joined another group of tourists from all over the world as we looked to see whales but man did this trip go wrong, when our ship broke down and a fishing vessel offers to help only to chase us around trying to kill us.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre

GenreComedy/Horror

CountryIceland

Short SaleThis is a horror comedy that has a cameo performance from the great Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface) which does follow a group people being picked off by psychopaths, this is fun and enjoyable in place and is the most likely the only Icelandic film I have seen.

Where will I head next, come back next week to see?

Actor Focus – Nicole Kidman Number 2

Actor Focus – Nicole Kidman

During this month, we are each pick out a film or television performance from Nicole Kidman to share, this months was Kira’s choice.

This red-haired Australian bombshell made her film debut in 1983 and still is an actress who appears in Oscar nominated movies like Lion, but picking a film to suggest comes off easier for myself than you would imagine.

My Pick

The Others (2001)

The Reason I picked this filmWhen you get an A-List star in horror you often get a complete miss, but with the Others Kidman owns this role. The film follows a mother who lives in darkness because her children are photosensitive, she becomes paranoid the house in haunted but you will be in for a shock when you learn the truth.

This is a horror people will always recommend by horror fans because of the draw of the big name in Kidman and I will always be one to follow the trend on recommending this horror gem.

Come back next week to see what Damien selects from Kidman’s work.
