Movie Reviews: A Closed Book aka Blind Revenge+Nuts+The Last House aka Cry For The Bad Man+G-Loc

A Closed Book aka Blind Revenge (2009)

Tom Conti and Daryl Hannah star in this tale of a home help with sinister motives. Simon MacCorkindale costars. This is based on a novel. Logic is the most minor of concerns. Conti is a famous critic/writer assailed by an external adversary. Conti does a luvvie accent. He needs a helper. One loses patience with this. Possible consequences aren't what you think.

Hannah destabilises his life in this hopeless tale of upheaval which is not compelling. This was a mistake that was not intriguing. This was inadequate. People have poor justification. There is revenge, sorta. This was negative. There is an aggressive approach. Anger is provoked. There is non adherence to logic and disarray and bad acting.

Best Lines:

“Good enough for God.”

“You hated everybody.”

“A national treasure.”

“The history of art ended with Rembrandt.”

Nuts (1987)

Barbra Streisand, Richard Dreyfuss and Karl Malden star in this tale of a hooker who has to prove she is competent to stand trial for murdering a client. This was facile. Leslie Nielsen is in this in a dramatic role. He runs around in tiny underpants meancing her and she kills him.

Best Lines:

“You're getting angry again.”

“I got a lot to be angry about!”

Nuts (1987) on Warner Home Video (United Kingdom Betamax, VHS videotape)

The Last House aka Cry For The Bad Man (2021)

A widow is harassed by rednecks. There is some real bad acting in this film. No one will help the widow. She gets out her guns. There is violence. This was not good. This was utter incompetence in fact.

Best Line:

“Scoop up your brother's insides and get the f**k off my property!”

G-Loc (2020)

Stephen Moyer of 'True Blood' and 'Ultraviolet', John Rhys-Davies and Capser Van Dien star in this crap mess which features exposition, stock footage and cheap looking sets/costumes and effects. There are petty grievances and this was not the most exciting. The characters are terrible, terrible people. They are raging egomaniacs who have utter selfishness and amorality and sheer indifference.

This was the nastiest. Why is Earth on the verge of a new ice age? Ill intentioned fractious twits with personal turmoil are havoc inducing. Nicholas Lea was in this somewhere. Avoid this.

Best Line:

“Warm sounds good.”
