When I saw the first trailer for this I wasn’t sure what to think. I’m a huge fan of Charlie Hunnam’s acting from Sons of anarchy but Pacific Rim felt a little flat to me(CGI aside).I’ve seen more than one version/incarnation of King Arthur over the years and not sure I’m ready for another one just yet.

KING ARTHUR from 2004 was very well written(starring Clive Owen, Keira Knightley and Madds Mikkelson)and I enjoyed it quite a bit ,despite it’s luke-warm response. Unfortunately films like this are the “medieval Western” of Britain. Not very much in demand and fewer and farther between.

King Arthur is to be released May.12th.New trailer below

Movie Monday: “Helio”

‘Helio’ is a award winning short film from writer/director/producer Teddy Cecil.  The short film has won over 50 awards, including Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.

The film takes place in a post apocalyptic underground society where a group miners work for light to survive. One minor gets an unexpected device from a rebel. The story never does not explain why there is a rebellion.  This leads to the miner now being chased by a government that tries desperately tries to stop the miner from reaching the surface. What he finds on the surface shocks and amazes him. The short has very little or no dialogue but that does not take away from the film at all.

The films has to pile a lot of information in the 19:47 length but does it very well.  This is a very well crafted and entertaining short movie.
