Good ensemble cast drama
A weird drama currently on Amazon Prime with a big cast line up. Including Nicole Kidman, Luke Evans, Melissa McCarthy and Samara Weaving to name a few. They all go to a wellness centre in a remote location to deal with their various issues. Is everything as it seems as Marsham (Kidman) who leads the retreat hand picked this group for other reasons. Her unconventional methods start to panic the group.
A decent drama with so many good actors on show. I did feel there would be a bizarre twist out of left field totally unexpected. However it never quite goes that extreme.
OK for a short series to distract you for a while.

A la Carte
A slightly odd quirky film that won't be to everyone's taste. From the trailer this looked something along the lines of @The Hunt (2020) or @Ready or Not (2019) where things turn left field quickly and a group has to try and survive. It's not quite like that.
A very upmarket restaurant in a remote location with a limited guest list turns out not quite to be the dining experience the guests expected. However a last minute addition to the guest list could turn things sour.
If you enjoy slightly odd films and can ignore a few plot developments which aren't very believable you could enjoy this offering.

A Perfect Getaway (2009)
A Perfect Getaway (2009)
2009 | Mystery, Thriller
If “Survivorman” hadn’t given me enough reason to never spend time on a remote beach, “A Perfect Getaway” has sealed my resolve. Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cidney (Milla Jovovich) are newlyweds honeymooning on a remote Hawaiian Island when rumors of a murderous couple begin to circulate. Cliff and Cidney soon find themselves in a triangle of couples, any of which could be the killers.

The film is more akin to a blending of “The Rundown” and “Idle Hands”, than the non-stop creep fest I had expected. Avoiding the exhausted remote Hawaiian island murder movie clichés, “A Perfect Getaway” contains a funny attention-grabbing game of who-done it complete with movie terms worked directly into the plot.

This is a film all about well-crafted characters. All the leads are fun to watch and everyone is bound to have a favorite; from the self proclaimed ‘American Jedi’ Nick (Timothy Olyphant) to the bubbly newlywed Cindy. For me it was the standout performance of Kiele Sanchez as Gina that was the most dramatic and suspenseful.

While I was hesitant to see a film about another a remote island in Hawaii covered in killers, “A Perfect Getaway” blasts past my sense of been there-done-that. The general feel of a mystery novel scattered through the lead characters creates a funny film reminiscent of my R. L. Stine years.

The location is beautiful and haunting, as is to be expected, and the camera is used in a way that truly puts viewers in the film’s action. While “A Perfect Getaway” does drag a little in the beginning staying into the real meat of the film is worth the wait. Additionally viewers will wonder why the film’s characters continue to spend time on an island reported to house a set of murders, but if you can discard these obvious mistakes “A Perfect Getaway” is a refreshing trip.

Nice location (0 more)
Very basic storyline (0 more)
Well I think I've missed a few entries as this is now the 7th entry in the Tremors series. Seen the first 4 and they did go very budget after the first 2 films.
This has the same old plot really, this time a big game hunter has set up a Graboid hunt on a remote island. Filmed in the lovely islands of Thailand. As usual things get out of hand and who who else do you turn to to deal with the problem than good ol' Burt Gummer.
The effects are pretty good, and this seems to have been influenced by Predator in a few scenes. Still tongue in cheek but you know what you are getting by now. One for Tremors fans otherwise you're not missing much.
