Movie Review Flashback: Netflix Delights With Two Original Movies

Last night after watching the premiere of American Ninja Warrior I was bored and desperate for a new movie to watch and so I went browsing on Netflix and I ultimately came across two Netflix Original Movies that were not only really fun to watch but actually very entertaining as well. So for all of you fellow Netflix subscribers and movie lovers I’m here to provide you spoiler-free reviews on these two original films.

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

If you love action movies and you love the comedian, Kevin James, this is a film worth watching for so many reasons. One, it’s got humor which is always a plus. Secondly, it’s surprisingly enjoyable if you’re just bored and needing a decent movie to satiate the new movie thirst. And three, it keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.

Kevin James’ character, Sam, is an aspiring author who writes a fictional story about an assassin and his top secret missions but when his publisher takes his story and spruces up the tale by tweaking the title and calling it “True” Memoirs of an International Assassin rather than its original title (Memoirs of an International Assassin) a lot of trouble and unwanted attention comes Sam’s way and he partakes in a non-stop adventure that’s truly exciting from beginning to end.

It’s also an entirely family-friendly movie with the exception of a bit of cursing and some violence but besides that there’s nothing inappropriate about this film whatsoever which is always refreshing. What would I give the movie, you might ask? I’d give 3.5 out of 5 stars and 84 out of a 100. It wasn’t the greatest action movie I’ve ever seen but it was very, very enjoyable indeed. Definitely take a look at it if you ever get the chance.

‘Hero’ Is One of the Most Beautiful Movies I Have Ever Watched

As you can tell from my blog, I love movies! I watch at least one movie every day and I love finding new films to watch. Kung fu movies are some of my favorite films and Hero, which was nominated for Best Picture in 2004 and has a 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes, is clearly one of the best movies of any genre that I have ever seen.

Hero is basically an epic brought to life, highlighting a Chinese story that has been told over thousands of years that signifies the birth of China as we know it. It is told in a poetic fashion, giving four different versions of the same story with each version displaying a new color tone.

The most deceitful version has the characters and the surroundings cast in striking red colors and tones but by the final version, which is the most truthful, the characters are adorned in white and their surroundings are pure of striking tones and are just more natural looking.
