Love (2015)

Love is a film willing to show enough skin that some may mistake it for a porno; however, it also has a story that director Gaspar Noe slowly allows to unwrap worth thinking about. Those who don’t want to think too long will be plenty happy with Love given the massive amount of sex scenes and a 3D threesome For most people the threesome would be enough to qualify a spot on the best sexy movie list, but the added dimensions only make the scene even steamier.

The plot for Love is fairly simple, although it unravels in a bit more complicated fashion. The leads are played by Karl Glusman (Murphy) and Aomi Muyock (Electra). The two have been in a relationship for two years when they decide to electrify their already engaging sex life by inviting neighbour Omi (Klara Kristin) to join them for a threesome. Quickly the film shows that sex, emotions, and responsibilities do not always converge the way we hope they will.

Blue Lagoon (1980)

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

The Blue Lagoon is a film that suggests that regardless of education human beings will always find a way to copulate as they age and pass through puberty. The film focuses on two children (Chris Atkins and Brooke Shields) who are marooned on an island and left to fend for themselves. Somehow the two manage to build a large shelter and life for themselves. While this is somewhat hard to believe, it is sweet to watch them create a life build out of a simple passion to survive.

More interesting however is when they reach their teen years and discover their sexual feelings for each. Once they discover sex it is all they want, and there are enough scenes the film could be considered a soft core porn film if not for the very strategic covering of palm trees, Shield’s hair, and other island items. Before long the two have a child and things get even more complicated, but the sweet love and the sexy love scenes are enough to keep the film afloat.

Bound (1996)

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

 

Bound is a very unique film in that it manages to be a sex film, a mobster film, a thriller, and even sometimes a comedy all at once. The film centers around Corky (Gina Gershon), a sexy lesbian that just got out of jail and Violet (Jennifer Tilly) who is the girlfriend of a mobster. It’s pretty clear the two have a sexual attraction, and it doesn’t take long for viewers to actually see it play out on screen.

The sex in the film is more than just functional, it is highly erotic and that makes it very captivating for those who want a few titillating moments. At the same time, the plot is intricate and well planned making it a film that will keep you entertained. Turns out you can have your jollies and feed your intelligence too, although the first part may be a lot more fun if Bound is any indication.

Wild Things (1998),

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

One of the most Wild Things about the film of the same name is its plot. Literally the twisty plot is still being explained to viewers as the credits roll via flashbacks that are placed between chunks of the credits. Of course, the other wild things are the sex scenes that dot the film. Sure, the sex can be a bit sleazy and so can some of the plot, but the movie never pretends it’s not. The sleaze is half of its charm, and it is very effective.

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

Females will not be disappointed as well given the fact that male full frontal nudity is a part of one of the most notable gratuitous sex scenes. However, there are so any different sexual situations that everyone should be satisfied by the close of the film. Toss in the violence and the overall plot that revolves around Lolita like students, cries of rape, and a town where class divides the school and you have a dark high school noir film set to thrill.

Caligula 1979

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

Caligula is a controversial but notable erotic historical drama ha holds the distinction of being the only full length feature film to ever be produced by Penthouse magazine. The original vision behind the film was to create a pornographic film that was highly produced with a feature film narrative that was equally engaging. The end result was a political satire about how power corrupts that features un-simulated sexual content, and hardcore sex scenes that pretty much highlight human sexuality at every turn.

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

The film is considered a cult classic and any people still cite its political content and the concept that absolute power does corrupt.  Additionally, lead actor Malcolm McDowell was praised for his effective and steady performance even in negative reviews that tended to focus on the explicit nature of the film. There are two versions of the film in existence today, the original highly explicit movie and a cut from 1981 that does not contain explicit sexual material.

some-of-hollywoods-best-sexy-movies-part-3

The compelling screenplay attracted a great deal of well-known actors and actresses to the set. Other top billed cast members outside of McDowell includes Sir John Gielgud, Helen Mirren, and Maria Schneider. Penthouse Pets rounded out the cast to act as extras in explicit sexual scenes that often served as the backdrop for monumental moments in the film.

The Five-Year Engagement, is what you expect Review Trailer

the-five-year-engagement-is-what-you-expect-review-trailer

There is absolutely nothing new about wedding movies coming out of Hollywood studios and one of the reasons Hollywood keep coming out with these movies as they keep being successful.

This movie starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segal called The Five-Year Engagement is a film that has some great comedic moments and the performances by the lead characters are in many ways charming. Unfortunately, overall the movie fails to find a balance and it doesn’t seem to know whether it wants to be a crude comedy, or a true romantic comedy.

The movie is produced by Judd Apatow who’s previously known for producing the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The movie is also written by the scribe of this film and many people who go to the theatre will be expecting a movie of similar standards. Instead of this, the movie just has a standard plot about whether or not these two characters will get married.

The film runs for over 120 minutes and it has a huge number of minor characters who don’t really add anything to the plot. All they seem to do is increase the running length of the movie which will make the audience rather tired of what is happening on screen..

the-five-year-engagement-is-what-you-expect-review-trailer

The movie tells the story of two characters who are clearly very much in love. They get engaged and plan to get married, but as the title of the movie gives away, not everything goes as planned. Many things start getting in the way of their marriage and it gets consistently delayed. There are many things that gradually take their toll on the relationship after they get engaged, such as the fact they had to move house for Blunt’s character to pursue an academic career, and Segal’s character is not satisfied with his career.

The style of the movie is pretty standard and it follows the story about how hard it can be to keep a good relationship going. There are moments of comedic brilliance in the movie such as when the character of Tom decides to grow a beard like a mountain man. The relationship is strained even more as the characters find themselves attracted to other people and they eventually have to be separated for work. Of course, this movie is going to have a happy ending, and the climax of the movie is entirely expected. That said, there are moments to enjoy and despite its lack of cohesion the film does entertain.

Deepwater Horizon Lacks Consistency Review Trailer

deepwater-horizon-lacks-consistency-review-trailer2

Six years ago the worst oil rig spill in American history occurred. The crisis happened aboard the Deepwater Horizon and led to the deaths of 11 workers, a survival struggle for the 115 left alive on-board, and a huge oil spill that threatened the health of the entire Gulf of Mexico. In the fallout of the disaster BP was fined billions and deemed responsible for the spill. The story of how it happened is finally on the big screen for everyone to see thanks to Peter Berg’s aptly titled Deepwater Horizon.

deepwater-horizon-lacks-consistency-review-trailer1

There are two sides of this film, both of which will likely attract their own respective types of audience. However, only one side actually holds up in the film. The first half of the movie sets up the disaster and to be honest can get a bit tedious at some points. The technical jargon is a bit rigid and at times you may wonder why you are even listening to it. It does little to propel the plot forward.

deepwater-horizon-lacks-consistency-review-trailer

Those who enjoy the emotional component of a disaster film will enjoy the build-up of the relationship between heroic lead Mike Williams (Mark Walhberg) and his wife (Kate Hudson.) It does add a nice emotional element since viewers get to see her get visibly quite upset alongside her husband’s fervour actions to save the ship. Yet, this isn’t given enough screen time in the end to justify the dullness of the first half.

On the other hand, those that head to Deepwater Horizon to see some action are not going to be disappointed.  The second half of the film is packed with blowouts, fireworks, explosions and more. People seem to be diving for their lives every other minute and the pace is fast and frantic. In fact, there is so much non-stop action that you may start wondering when the film will end. At the end, it may be hard to believe that only 11 people died given the amount of carnage that seems to fill almost every scene.

deepwater-horizon-lacks-consistency-review-trailer

To his credit, Walhberg plays his part excellently. He has spent two decades perfecting the stoic hero figure and he plays his role excellently. It is Berg’s direction that seems to lack as he creates a documentary drama that turns into an action film. It’s the lack of a consistent voice throughout the film that really fails audiences, not the actors or the special effects.

The Magnificent Seven loads of action not much character Review Trailer

the-magnificent-seven-loads-of-action-not-much-character-review-trailer

The only surprising thing about The Magnificent Seven is the fact that it took this long for someone to finally decide to do a remake. After all, superhero films seem to be getting a reboot every decade, but it took Antoine Fuqua to re-envisage this classic film to. Of course, it is a lot more intimidating to redo a film that is a cult classic in itself.

Denzel Washington stars in Columbia Pictures' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

The original film came out in 1960 and was its-self a remake of the “Seven Samurai” directed by Akira Kurosawa. This time John Sturges was at the wheel and he put together an all-star cast that shared a great chemistry and excellent bravado. Of course, the fact that Elmer Bernstein wrote the iconic score certainly did not harm anything.

the-magnificent-seven-loads-of-action-not-much-character-review-trailer

This time around Furque does not quite capture the same high spirit as Sturges, but he does manage to add in a lot more shoot-em-up action scenes with close ups on the shots, bodies, and plenty of gunfire. The score originally written by Bernstein gets a few references, but it is left to play during the end credits so it’s up to the cast to really make the audience want to sit through two hours-plus.

Chris Pratt and director Antoine Fuqua on the set of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

The good news is the cast is made up of seven magnificent actors so watching the film is not too rough at all. Denzel Washington leads the rag tag team of cowboys with assistance from Chris Pratt. Haley Bennett is his love interest who begs him to come save the town from the greedy industrialist who is played with quite a bit of flare and fun by Peter Sarsgaard.

In an effort to drive Sarsgaard’s character out of town Washington enlists a crowd of helpers who  end up including Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Byung-hun Lee, Manual Garcia- Rulfo, and Martin Sensmeier.  The only problem is that the characters lack a proper back story and sometimes it seems like the one is tone is a bit off. It skirts all over the place making it hard for the audience to know what exactly to think.

In the end the action scene during the final showdown brings the film to a close, but even then outside of the action scenes it seems the movie is still missing the heart that it had in its original telling.

Matt Bomer Biography Filmography

Snowden is Slow to Deliver Its Final Punch Review Trailer

snowden-is-slow-to-deliver-its-final-punch-review-trailer

Snowden is certainly a relevant film in this day and age for a variety of reasons. First of is the fact that it tells the story of a whistleblowing event that happened during this decade. Second, is the fact that the real life Snowden is seeking a presidential pardon as Obama’s term comes to an end. With so many high expectations it is not surprising that Oliver Stone took it slow.

In his new biopic Stone tells the story of Snowden in a very meticulous, earnest, and detailed fashion. The only problem is that he is so serious about getting it right that sometimes the movie seems a bit dull. Stone is known for his over the top plots and crazy suggestions, but they are lacking from this film. So while it may be historically accurate, it’s not always that fun of a blockbuster.

snowden-is-slow-to-deliver-its-final-punch-review-trailerThat is not to say however that it is not effective. Snowden’s actions are still very controversial among most so a film with large production and leading actors is a great way to get the story out about really happened.

One reason for the less over the top caricature is the simple fact that Snowden is not the same flamboyant figure that is usually at the centre of Stone’s films. Instead, he is a bit of a techno whiz kid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a great job of countering the geeky personality with a guarded character that is aware of his moves. Of course, he had good reason to be measured and guarded which unfolds gently along with the film.

snowden-is-slow-to-deliver-its-final-punch-review-trailer

The film opens up in 2013 when Snowden first arranges a meeting between Poitras and two journalists. It’s within the first few minutes of the film that the audience learns that he is indeed a whistle-blower and has extensive knowledge of how much the government surveils its own citizens. Although the film spends a lot of time unfolding this life changing scene, it intercuts the event with flashbacks that explain how Snowden came to be in his current position.

However, despite learning about his brilliant and patriotic background the film shows us that he becomes disillusioned and alarmed at what the government is up too. He starts to argue with superiors and the cracks of what will soon become a major whistleblowing event quickly start to show up. The rest of the film is made up of the obligatory girlfriend and a cast of supporting actors that blow in and out too quickly to take note.

Bridget Jones Baby delivers nostalgia and great one liners review, trailer

bridget-jones-baby-delivers-nostalgia-and-great-one-liners-review-trailer

Bridget Jones is back again, and she is just as awkwardly adorable as she was when she first stumbled onto the big screen. It is hard not to feel for poor Bridget, who in her own words’ finds new ways to make new mistakes.’ While the new instalment in the Bridget franchise still doesn’t top the first, it is exponentially better than the second movie.

It’s been 12 years since we have last seen Bridget Jones played by Renee Zellweger, who coincidently has also been missing from the screen for a few years. However, ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ brings her back in full force as she is now a successful producer in her 40’s.

bridget-jones-baby-delivers-nostalgia-and-great-one-liners-review-trailer

Everything is sailing along just fine excluding the fact that she has broken up with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). At least until she realizes that she is pregnant, and is not sure who the baby’s father is. It’s classic Bridget, and sets audiences up for a very fun ride offering them two men to root for (or against) similar to the Mark and Daniel Cleaver debates of the previous films.

bridget-jones-baby-delivers-nostalgia-and-great-one-liners-review-trailer

Zellweger gives a very warm and lovable performance throughout the film and while she is not likely to snag another Academy nomination for her turn as Bridget, she is a lot of fun to watch. One of the downsides is that this alone is not enough to pull the film along as it is a mixed bag of delights and awkwardness in a not so Bridget way.

bridget-jones-baby-delivers-nostalgia-and-great-one-liners-review-trailer

For example, the sequel seems confused about whether or not it should try to be nostalgic or cash in on more modern dilemmas. The result is some great one liners and some glamping that is almost painful to watch. The soundtrack is the perfect example of the dilemma as it mixes classics like ‘We Are Family’ alongside Pharrell and Rihanna before popping up a Marvin Gaye track. It’s hard to get a real feel for the direction the film wants.

bridget-jones-baby-delivers-nostalgia-and-great-one-liners-review-trailer

The good news is the rest of the cast supports Zellweger’s great performance delivering some of the most memorable lines of the film in a simply delicious fashion. It’s hard to grow tired of restrained Colin Firth or not to life at Emma Thompson’s extremely sarcastic lines. Plus, Patrick Dempsey is tossed in as eye candy, and it’s hard not to enjoy his very different acting style against the more refined British roles.
