Beverly Hills Cop

September, 2020

This is one of Eddie Murphy’s best movies no doubt. Not only is it hilarious to see detective Axel Foley( talk his way through almost anything and use his unorthodox detective work to try solve the trouble he often finds himself in but also leaves you wondering what’s really going on in the crime world of Beverly Hills. The film is based and filmed in the 80s but still holds it’s own in today’s cinema.

If you like this one there is a Beverly Hills cop 2 & 3 which follows Axel solving other cases. 

 

 

Goodfellas

August, 2020

Good fellas is a directional masterpiece, the film stands out in all areas including visual, auditory and narrative excellence. This is the reason why it is described as a “classic”. Based on Nicholas Pileggi's book Wiseguys, Good Fellas is based on the real-life story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta). Hill is a young Irish-Italian gangster who grew up as a foot soldier in the dynamic city of New York. He later finds himself in more and more trouble loosing his motivation for a life of crime and the lure of the underground world in New York diminishes.  

 

42

July, 2020

To kick things of for our new segment with all the racial injustice going on in the world we thought this movie would be a great way to put things in to perspective. 42 is based in 1947 when Jackie Robinson a baseball player, goes from the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro League to the Brooklyn Dodgers and becomes the first ever African American Major League Baseball player. In the film Jackie doesn't take too kindly to racism to begin with, but now is on a higher platform facing greater racist hostility. It isn't perfect but it definitely is inspiring and very entertaining whilst being historically accurate, 42 is a must watch.
