Mute is a curious film, it has to communicate desire, secrecy, love, obsession, and probably the idiocy of relationships. I won’t say that it was a spectacular movie but it did get the job done.
Leo, who is (obviously) mute due to an accident in his childhood, tries to navigate the underworld in order to find his sweet Naadi. There are plenty of moments when you can see his desperation and even feel his anguish. This is the part where I give the director Duncan Jones a thumbs up. The emotions in the film are easy to interpret and for some Netflix movies that can be a sour subject.
Whether by design or the lack there of, some Netflix movies come across like the characters are reading from a book. Feelings are told rather than expressed, characters’ faces are left blank but their dialogue has so much emotional baggage that it makes me cringe.
Mute wasn’t all good either. There was a huge suspense gap for almost the majority of the movie. The characters while some of them were dynamic, others come across as flat in need of development. The flaws are so obvious in the movie that you don’t have to watch the whole thing to find them.
Despite the need for more dynamic characters, this movie had its moments of random beauty and grotesque exaggerations. If I had to take anything away from this 3 miles short of an excellent film, it would probably be something along the lines of life is all types of screwed up, but sometimes the creeper does get what’s coming to them. Even if it may take a while.
If you want to know if he finds her and how he stands up for himself, then watch the movie.

Daisy Ridley Promises Epic Lightsaber Duel In ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’
“We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”
The lightsaber duel is a staple of Star Wars lore. Every episode has featured some of the most iconic battles in cinematic history. Many fans were disappointed with the lack of saber action in Episode VII, even though the film primarily focused on Rey trying to discover her true place within the universe. ‘The Last Jedi’ attempted to give us more action but was over shadowed by Director Rian Johnson’s character arc choices. Going into ‘Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker’ J.J. Abrams knows what’s at stake, while bringing us the conclusion to one of the most beloved franchises in movie history. In a recent interview with Wired about Episode IX, Daisy Ridley shed some light on what we can expect in the final installment:
“The interesting thing about this film is that we concentrate more on the fact that [the lightsabers] are light,” Ridley told the publication, “Because the [old] lightsabers were so heavy, as Eunice [Huthart] said, who is our new stunt coordinator, that it was more like broadsword fighting, which isn’t technically what it’s supposed to be because lightsabers are supposed to be light, by nature.”
Since the “Skywalker” lightsaber that was a focal point in ‘Episode VII’ was destroyed during ‘The Last Jedi,’ it would appear that Rey will be getting herself a new “Lighter” saber. Daisy also, went on further to suggest we will be witnessing one of, if not the most epic Star Wars lightsaber duels of all time via Episode IX:
“So they actually made them lighter for us,”the actress continued “We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”
‘The Rise of Skywalker’ has a lot riding on it to properly conclude the “Skywalker Star Wars Saga.” J.J. Abrams is well aware of what’s at stake. One can only imagine that he will pull out all the stops to ensure one of the greatest endings in recent cinematic history.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Brings Us New Images And Character Details
“I don’t feel like I’m changing the mythology. I think it’s a continuation of the cause and effect”
The James Cameron produced ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has released new images, featuring the old school T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) doing what he does best. The photos also feature Mackenzie Davis who plays Grace a humanoid cyborg, and a new poster featuring the OG cast, Arnold and Linda Hamilton.
Director Tim Miller (Deadpool) is hoping to give fans a fresh look at the Terminator franchise, while keeping with the continuity of the old. He wants fans to understand the cause and effect principle that is constantly reshaping the future:
“I don’t feel like I’m changing the mythology. I think it’s a continuation of the cause and effect that [James Cameron] set up in the other Terminator movies, which is simply if you make a change in the past, it will change the future. So you have to expect that what happened before, or the history that Sarah had been told of the future, was going to change. I don’t look at it as changing mythology. I look at it as the natural outcome of the set of rules that Jim established in the first two movies.”
Arnold has returned as the T-800 in previous Terminator films, from ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,’ ‘Terminator: Salvation’ and ‘Terminator: Genisys’ which have all been met with tough fan criticism. This time around, Miller hopes to present the terminator in a new way, in which fans have yet to see:
“This version of Arnold is something that Jim has been thinking about for a long time. I think it’s a really great way for him to come back to the franchise. I understood the other movies and the way they handled him, but I didn’t want to do that again. I really thought that the way to do something unique for this film was to have Arnold’s backstory and the way he interacts with the rest of the characters be something we hadn’t seen from that character before… but I also think it has the expected amount of Arnold kicking ass.”
During a recent interview, Arnold was asked how he felt about this recent incarnation of the Terminator franchise and how he felt about the level of action this new film would provide:
“I would say [this movie] is huge action-wise. I was very satisfied with the ideas and the big action that this movie has. It’s really wild.”
