Inside Your Head
Ricochet- oh my god this movie is good. John Lithgow as the villian. He is excellent, wicked, twisted and makes Denzel charcter go insane and crazy. John Lithgow is such a excellent actor and i love when he plays as the villian.

The plot: After tracking down and arresting Earl Talbot Blake (John Lithgow), a psychotic hit man, rookie Los Angeles police officer Nick Styles (Denzel Washington) is hailed as a hero. Several years later, Styles' life appears perfect: He has married his girlfriend, started a family and risen to the position of assistant district attorney. However, his world is turned upside down when Blake escapes from prison with plans to exact brutal and well-calculated revenge.

If you haven't heard or seen this movie than I would highly reccordmend it. Well packed action, suspense and drama.

John Lithgow
Hello Mr Morgan!
Another great series I've ploughed through quickly. This time John Lithgow stars as a serial killer who has been going for 30 years. Can Dexter learn from him? Or should and him to his slide collection. If he doesn't what cost could this have?
Well written with some very surprising twists and turns. Another one where you can't wait for the next episode!

Good all outdoor thriller as Stallone the experienced climber is fooled by a group of criminals into finding a stash of cash lost in the snowy peaks, good levels of action and nice Vista's prop up a better than average story mechanic, John Lithgow makes a great bad guy.

Watched last night as I’ve read the Stephen king novel and watched the original film so going into the remake will it be any good it’s okay not as good as the original there are some changes in this version from the original the main being the daughter being brought from the dead and not the son.and there’s John lithgow who usually plays crazy characters actually plays a normal character which is a change for him but for me definitely star in the has to be jete Laurence who plays the daughter and plays both versions of her character brilliant overall okay film still prefer the original

Now I have to say that I wasn't 100% sure of the story behind Bombshell that stars Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and an unrecognisable John Lithgow, what I did vaguely know is that the movie is based on the rather powerful and controversial media empire Fox News and of the story of the woman that brought down the man that created the well-known empire.

It's certainly a refreshing change from all the action and adventure films that I've been seeing lately and ys it is a slowish paced film, but Bombshell kept me interested in the storyline, as they fight to take on the power of Fox News and Roger Ailes (John Lithgow), this is a film that is pretty powerful to watch and is intriguing and interesting as Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) takes on the media mogul in a fight for justice.

Ridiculously early Oscar predictions:
Best Picture- Jojo Rabbit (they have never been keen on satire, but it looks like a winner at TIFF)
Best Director- Terence Malick, A Hidden Life
Best Actor- Antonio Banderas, Pain & Glory (plays a veiled version of his director like Roy Scheider)
Best Actress- Cynthia Erivo, Harriet
Best Supporting Actor- John Lithgow, Bombshell (they like villainous people)
Best Supporting Actress- Annette Bening (famous Oscar loser gets redemption)
Best Original Screenplay- The Farewell (QT has 2 already)
Best Adapted Screenplay- Jojo Rabbit (writers live satire though)

The best I can say about this film is that it was alright. The premise was good, although i don't think it was very well executed.

Jon Bernthal was great, probably the best actor in this. John Lithgow and JK Simmons were sadly underused, and I really didn't rate Ben Affleck. Anna Kendrick too seems to play the same character in pretty much every film she's in.


Still I liked some of the action and the comedy, although by the end I couldn't quite figure out what the point was in the investigation into the accountant?

I quite enjoy this movie I do think that the reveal at the end concerning Jon bernthall just felt a little too forced and unrealistic
