Westworld Underrated and forgotten movies Trailer

westworld-underrated-and-forgotten-movies-trailer

The upcoming TV series ‘Westworld’ made me think of the original 1973 movie, which was fairly groundbreaking in its concept for the time.

The idea that we would have robots to entertain us and to allow us to live out our fantasies was just pure science fiction 40 years ago, but now as we move towards the reality of such entertainment the movie has a new meaning.

Plunkett & Macleane underrated movie Best trailers ever

Plunkett & Macleane underrated movie Best trailers ever

This is one of my all time favourite movies, it spares nothing in showing the filth and decay of the 18th-century. It features wonderful performances by Robert Carlyle and Johnny Lee Miller re-teaming after the huge success of Trainspotting.

The trailer begins very slowly, looking like a typical gentle British period drama, then suddenly bursting into life  as our heroes take on a life of crime, the pace is fast and the action is as exciting as any car chase movie.

The modern soundtrack by Craig Armstrong stands out and greatly enhances the movie, this is a forgotten gem I highly recommend.

Storyline

Will Plunkett and Captain James Macleane, two men from different ends of the social spectrum in 18th-century England, enter a gentlemen’s agreement: They decide to rid the aristocrats of their belongings.

With Plunkett’s criminal know-how and Macleane’s social connections, they team up to be soon known as “The Gentlemen Highwaymen”. But when one day these gentlemen hold up Lord Chief Justice Gibson’s coach, Macleane instantly falls in love with his beautiful and cunning niece, Lady Rebecca Gibson.

Unfortunately, Thief Taker General Chance, who also is quite fond of Rebecca, is getting closer and closer to getting both: The Gentlemen Highwaymen and Rebecca, who, needless to say, don’t want to get any closer to him. But Plunkett still has a thing to sort out with Chance, and his impulsiveness gets all of them in a little trouble.

The trailer shows the gentle relationship developing between the odd couple while at the same time Miss Portman shows an astonishingly high level of skill when dismantling, cleaning, and using guns.

Throw in a crocked cop (Gary Oldman in arguably his best role ever) and you have an action packed but gentle trailer that lets you know, love it or hate it, this is a movie that is not easy to forget.

Munich underrated movie review trailer

A true story from Stephen Spielberg is gripping and would just be another thriller if it was not an unbelievable retelling of actual events, very much worth seeing if you missed it.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a movie that most people seem to have over-looked. It is Steve Martin and Michael Caine at their funniest,

The trailer gives away the plot pretty clearly, but there are so many laughs in this movie only a fraction appear in the trailer. In fact the very funny ending for the trailer does not even make it into the finished movie.

Mel Gibson is Blood Father, and it looks good trailer

Mel Gibson is Blood Father and it looks good trailer

I think back in the 80s we all loved Mel Gibson he had a magnetic screen presence and made some great movies. then somewhere along the line he decided he would destroy his own career with so-so movies, religious extremism and lots of booze.

In my opinion he came back with the very underrated Get the Gringo

If you havn’t seen it take a look at the trailer you may like it

And now he is treading similar action ground with the August release Blood Father. The story looks like something we have seen lots of times before. Deadbeat dad try’s to save his long lost daughter from evil drug dealers.

But it does have a bit of that magic that Gibson used to produce without any effort, take a look for yourself.
