The Gentlemen: How Do You Sell A Drug Empire Without Complications? – A Review

Release Date: December 3, 2019

Starring: Matthew McConaughe, Hugh Grant, Jeremy Strong, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, et al.

This movie starts with a simple premise – An investigative journalist, Fletcher, hopes to blackmail a bodyguard, Raymond, into paying him 20 million dollars in exchange for a metaphorical (yet literal) screenplay that’ll save his boss, Mickey Pearson’s life.

Funny stuff, believe me.

How the game quickly turns around, reveals the key players, and reveals Fletcher isn’t really the one with all the chips is marvelous.

This Guy Ritchie movie has all the markings of a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Love it, love it, love it!

Among many other reasons why Interstellar is one of my all time favourite movie, it gave me Mathew McConaughe to fall in love with. In ‘The Gentlemen, he doesn’t disappoint one bit. His portrayal of crime veteran on the edge of retirement, Mickey Pearson, is phenomenal! The rest of the supporting are too, with special recognition to Charlie Hunnan and Henry Golding’s Dry Eye.

PS: Dry eyes. Phucc. Who the actual fuck named these characters? 😂

Rinzy Reviews ‘The Dark Tower’ (2017)

Release Date: July 31, 2017

Budget and Box Office: $60M/ $113.2M

Starring: Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, etc. 

Since its release The Dark Tower has been generally criticized for being a poor adaptation of its source material – the novel by Stephen King. I just saw it and I say critics and audience might’ve been too hard on it. It doesn’t score much on the awesomeness meter, but it does try on the sensibility’s. 

Though not a strong contender for best film of the year, the movie boasts just two fairly strong performances from Idris Elba and young Tom Taylor. I had serious issues with the way Matthew McConaughey portrayed the role of a man with magic… It was very bad and unconvincing. 

The movie scores very low points for set, cinematography and costumes. Nothing out of the ordinary in any of these, which, I guess, aided its poor reviews. 

If you’re looking for something decent with a tiny western-modern feel you should see this The Dark Tower. Like I said earlier, it’s not unwatchable. 👌. 

PS: Whoever understood the unique concept of a Gunslinger and why Idris Elba’s Roland was resistant to the Man in Black’s magic should please explain. ☺.
