When a new holiday called Girlfriend’s Day is announced, Ray Wentworth (Bob Odenkirk), a semi-retired romance writer, tries recapturing the romantic feelings he once held to in turn produce the perfect card for the new occasion. Through his journey however, he gets caught up in a complex web of homicide and dishonesty as rival writers compete for the cash given to the person that can create the best greeting card.

A Quiet Place 1 (2018) – Review

Two parents must do whatever it takes to keep their children safe and as far away from the fearsome and murderous creatures that are seemingly roaming earth as possible. Consequently, the entire family are forced to live in total silence while remaining hidden away from the monsters that have ultra-sensitive hearing but no vision at all. A tremendously unique and gripping film that has fans eagerly awaiting the release of part two.

Polar (2019) – Review

A surprisingly action-packed movie that follows a talented, yet haunted hitman, who is nearing his retirement date and ready to collect a pension pay-out from the company he has been employed with. Unbeknown to him, he must fend off the same companies attempts to end his life, thus cancelling the pension pay-out he is expecting. In my opinion, one of the best films of 2019, but in the opinion of others, Polar is considered just a cheap and nasty John Wick rip-off. It’s worth noting that this movie is based on the Dark Horse Comics of the same name (Polar) with Mads Mikkelsen adopting the role of Duncan Vizla – the hitman.

Asher (2018) – Review

Ron Perlman stars as Asher, an ageing hitman that is slowly coming to the end of his career. Despite struggling through illness, he decides to pair up with a younger prodigy, but when that doesn’t go as well as originally anticipated, Asher and the people he cares for become vulnerable targets themselves. Not the most remarkable of movies but on the other hand, not the worst as far as low budget New York based feature films go.
