Dark Waters 123movies (2019)
Release: November 26, 2019
123movies Dark Waters
Perhaps this movie is not as disgustingly harmful as such movies as Larry the Cable guy but it is still a rotten and disgusting piece of cinema that can also do potential harm to the viewer. The tag-line is "drop dead gorgeous" but what you see will be completely the opposite with added disgusting features, which are not funny, simply puke worthy. Don't say I didn't warn you. The morons who made this movie should figure out that the term 'Asexual' means organisms which reproduce without sex and that it has nothing to do with spooning. This just goes to show the intelligence level of the audience that was intended. Besides the harmful factors, there exists no story or anything resembling anything sane or logical in this movie. Avoid this movie. Don't even watch it at gunpoint.

Cast: Anne Hathaway, Mark Ruffalo, William Jackson Harper, Tim Robbins, Bill Pullman, Louisa Krause, Victor Garber, Mare Winningham, Bill Camp, Scarlett Hicks, Kevin Crowley, Ming Wang, Anita Farmer Bergman, Brian Gallagher, Daniel R. Hill
123movies Queen & Slim
This movie is an excellent sci-fi romp combining intense actions sequences with a tense plot. Basically the story centers around an alien invasion of earth and a teenager who finds himself forced into the battle with the aid of a prototype suit of armour which could be the planet's only saviour.
I recently caught this movie as part of a anime run on Sci-Fi, and almost missed this enjoyable piece of science fiction. Detonator Orgun dives straight into the action with a sequence which although enjoyable is slightly confusing. After this sequence the actual story begins and starts the process of explaining the situation and characters. As the movie progresses the plot unfolds, leading to more excellent action sequences and a plot that draws you in. By the end it all makes sense, but somehow you still want more.
I would recommend this movie to anime fans, and sci-fi fans alike. If you can cope with the initial confusion, the remainder of the film bears the marks of a classic. Extremely enjoyable.

123movies Richard Jewell
Set in a Japan where the railways were never privatised protagonist Naoto Takayama has just begun his training. He hope to become a driver one day but ends up training in the security department with a group of mainly female trainees. Over the course of the series they will have to deal with a number of situations; not all of them security related.
The title of this series is somewhat confusing as there are rails but no wars I believe the light novel series on which this is based of features a group which fights to privatise the railways but they don't feature here. Instead we get a succession of dramas, some comedy and a fair amount of fan service! While the latter isn't extreme it is a bit gratuitous and may put some people off although I confess I couldn't help laughing at the scene where a model train is derailed when it bumps into one of the girls' breasts! There may be another boy in the group but this show is to all intents a harem show with Takayama at its centre; no opportunity to get him in an awkward situation with the girls is missed. Not all of the humour is of a sexual nature; female lead Aoi Sakurai provides quite a few laughs her gung-ho attitude. The animation is of a high standard; I was particularly impressed with how the 3D animation of the moving trains fitted in with the 2D character animation. Overall this is a bit of a guilty pleasure which I'm sure some will hate but I rather enjoyed.
These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.

123movies Sorry We Missed You
The Thing That Couldn't Die is a classic mind control movie. The Thing (a severed head) uses its powers to control several people throughout the film, including two luscious ladies. We get to see both of them in their nightgowns. The only regret is that the movie wasn't made today, so we could see a little more.
Overall, the film is well done.

Bad Boys for Life 123movies (2020)
Release: January 17, 2020
123movies Bad Boys for Life
I'd probably have to agree that the acting in this movie isn't the best I've ever seen. Whether that's down to all the actors apart from Sherman Hemsley and Rhonda Leigh being nervous, inexperienced or off colour: or average direction I don't really know. The conversations were a bit stilted. No two people ever seem to speak at the same time. But that did help my six year old to be up with the story at all times whereas with some of the modern style more realistic films she has to constantly ask me why this and that happened, so "every cloud.." as they say.
Mr O'Donnels "road to Damascus moment" is a bit easily accomplished to my mind.
The dog ( don't know if it was Orbit or Orion that did the particular scene ) doesn't do Ill that well either and looked fairly full of beans when diving into the pool to try and save the little girl,
Never the less, these minor gripes aside, it's a nice enough story and as you might expect won't keep your kids awake crying all night

123movies Terminator: Dark Fate
The film is a complete, lazy, uninspired cash-grab. They are so disgustingly, shamelessly DEVOID of ideas. I simply dont understand how this is even possible with all the amazing comics, fan fiction tales and James Cameron's own future war concepts being right there for the picking.
Say what you will of Linda's performance being great, of Grace's performance being cool. I don't remotely care because this film has no business even existing. It not only offers nothing new at all and has the stones to tell the same bloody story again, but it goes further than that by outright trying to fool you into believing its original groundbreaking.
How does it do this? By shamelessly exploiting the current cultural phenomena of pushing female super heroes everywhere. Problem is fantastic movies like Wonder Woman that accomplish this well, or Alita: Battle Angel doing even better, this film however just tries to ride that wave with minimal freaking effort and it is making my blood boil.
John Connor is dead. He gets shot in the first 4 minutes of the film. Okay, thats different. Fine. I can deal with that. But now what? Are you gonna come up with some super cool, different concept ?
Of course they aren't. They just replace him with a girl. And nothing at all changes. Like literally, nothing changes. Its so pathetically uninspired and I see people and media praising it for being like The Force Awakens.
Like what the actual F ? How is that a good thing? Ripping off completely and pretending its fine. Its just so typical of entertainment these days. Hollywood is so monumentally bankcrupt of ideas.
We could've done something really cool with the future war here. We could've gone further, and now that Linda Hamilton is back they could've made her the leader. Driven by her loss of her son.
Thats a freaking awesome story right there and Linda is still rocking it. But no... instead of doing something cool to respect the original, they throw it all out the window and gender swap John Connor with a chick from Mexico.
And we've established that there is absolutely nothing special about her at all. Now this is once again where the The Force Awakens problem by making your movie political and pushing the agenda that everyone who's not special can accomplish great things.
The only problem with this is that its been done before. And better. I am so sick of this. The director made statements on social media that this movie would scare people who had issues with women. Indirectly insinuating anyone who has a problem with the movie has a problem with women . The film also tries to pander to the current political climate with border talk between the US and Mexico which everyone is sick and tired of but who cares.
I'm simply at a loss for words when I try to figure out what is worse. Heavy political and agenda pushing influence in this movie, by gender swapping a beloved lead character for decades to pander, or by simply using this tactic as a mean of exploitation... to make a really lazy, easy movie and get people to watch it, thinking its some masterpiece... when in truth its just a lazy, pointless remake.
I'll leave that up to you, dear reader, to decide.
Nr 1: Linda was great. Really awesome, believable, strong and epic as always.
Nr 2: Arnold was cringe as Karl the Terminator. So weird, and the little hints at how men should behave made me roll my eyes. Having a non-physical relationship. Yeah right... in what universe, pal.
Nr 3: Mckenzie Davis was really cool. I expected to hate her character but i didn't. I wish she had survived at the end. But nothing good is allowed to exist in this franchise.
Nr 4::Dani was utterly filler. Her entire character is pure filler, pure pandering. This is not how to pass the torch. Wasted character.
Nr 5: The villain isn't scary. They said Rev 9 is the most dangerous terminator. Well, I dont buy it. He's being bullied, bossed around, thrown everywhere, easily kept at bay with guns and overall the nice, calm, human persona of the infiltration behavioral pattern just makes the character look like a really generic villain. Calm, evil, almost psychopathic, but that is not what a Terminator is. And hilariously Arnie's Young Cameo at the start of the movie posed MORE of a threat than the entirety of the Rev 9 throughout the entire movie. It is nothing short of insane how badly they understand what a Terminator is supposed to act like.
Nr 6: And this is possibly the worst part of the film in its totality. The movie has no replay value at all. It is very slow moving, quite boring, it takes so long and wasted so much time running around in Mexico, riding trains to the border, getting caught by border guards, passing out in drugstores etc etc.
Its so god damn boring and the action scenes are few and far between if you can believe it and they aren't very good either.
4 out of 10. Lame, uninspired, wasteful, lazy, generic, and perhaps more than anything - desperate - to win whatever audience attendence they can get by pandering and including political elements which will only conclude in the worst crime a movie can commit. Something James Cameron himself talked about in his interviews with great filmmakers alike himself.
That of creating something timeless that can be enjoyed regardless of how old it gets.
And Dark Fate is anything but that... I'm glad Arnie wont be back. I sure as hell won't either.

123movies Motherless Brooklyn
Well, there was really only one redeeming factor to this movie and that was seeing Twilight's Victoria, Rachelle Lafevre, in a starring role. She did a fabulous job portraying a girl who comes to the realization that her entire existence has been a lie and then is thrown into a spiral of crazy events. Rachelle still shone, despite the lack of reality and massive plot holes in this movie.
The movie pretty much gets going right from the get-go. Rachelle's character Elsa/Sophie is getting drunk with her boyfriend and friend, when her friend notices a milk carton ad of a missing child who looks just like Elsa. As a drunken prank, they call the number on the ad. And from there, things just get plain weird.
Basically, this was like that old movie, starring Kellie Martin (The Face on the Milk Carton), on steroids. With the exception of Rachelle and maybe one or two others, the acting wasn't all that great and the storyline was pretty unbelievable (not in a good way) and hard to follow. Jeremy London, who I normally enjoy seeing in movies, gave a very disappointing performance. The movie jumps from scene to scene with minimal explanation of the events and ends with a supposed twist that I found to be fairly predictable. Overall, 4 out of 10 and that may be generous. Come on Lifetime, you've done better than that!
Director: Edward Norton

Amy Fisher, aka the "Long Island Lolita", was a seventeen-year-old girl who, in 1992, shot and severely wounded Mary Jo Buttafuoco, the wife of her thirty-something lover Joey Buttafuoco. Fisher was subsequently sentenced to seven years in prison. The media have always been prone to sensationalising crime stories, but this tendency seemed particularly pronounced in America during the early nineties, the age of O. J. Simpson, Lorena Bobbitt and the Menendez brothers. Amy therefore became an instant media celebrity and all three major US television networks rushed out dramatisations of her case. "The Amy Fisher Story" was ABC's contribution; the others were "Amy Fisher: My Story" (NBC) and "Casualties of Love: the Long Island Lolita Story" (CBS).
I cannot compare "The Amy Fisher Story" with "Casualties of Love", which I have never seen, and will not attempt a comparison with the NBC version (known in Britain as "Lethal Lolita") as I have not seen it since was first seen on British television about fifteen years ago. "The Amy Fisher Story" did, however, remind me of another TV movie from the early nineties, "Too Young to Die?" from three years earlier. Both films are, to some extent at least, based on true stories and both deal with a shooting carried out by a teenage girl. Both feature an outstanding performance from an up-and-coming young actress, Juliette Lewis in the earlier film and Drew Barrymore here. During their teenage years both Lewis and Barrymore seemed to specialise in "wild child" roles- Barrymore's best-known was probably in "Poison Ivy"- and in Barrymore's case there was plenty of speculation that these roles mirrored her off-screen antics. Here she is excellent as Amy- a wild, out-of-control young woman, at war with her strict parents (especially her father) and obsessed with her older lover.
Of the two films, "Too Young to Die?", which is several cuts above the average made-for-TV true crime drama, is the better. I think it gains by the decision to fictionalise the story on which it is based. It advertised itself not as the true story of the Attina Cannady case but rather as a fictional story loosely based on that case, which makes it easier for the film to raise some very pertinent questions about an important social issue, namely America's use of the death penalty. The acting is also of a higher standard in that film; apart from Barrymore's few contributions in "The Amy Fisher Story" stand out.
"The Amy Fisher Story" did, by contrast, advertise itself as a dramatisation of a true story, and like many such films, especially made-for-TV ones, is told in a drily factual style. It is not, moreover, even factually accurate in all particulars. After his wife's shooting, Joey Buttafuoco denied that there had ever been any sexual relationship between Amy and himself, claiming that she had grown desperate when he rejected her advances. The film, which was rushed out soon after the shooting, takes these denials at face value, presumably in order not to jeopardise Buttafuoco's pending trial for statutory rape, but soon afterwards he changed his plea to guilty and served several months in jail.
In many respects "The Amy Fisher Story" is no more than an average film, but I have given it an above-average mark for Barrymore's performance. 6/10

123movies Little Women
I figure since no one's written on this yet, let me be the first. And this is from a fan, not a film critic, so hey. Well, it's Ranma, and for those of you who love Ranma, you must think this movie's like the toast of the town whatever phrases y'all use]. But, looking at it objectively, it's a horrid story. I am of the unfortunate few who don't understand Japanese and have to wait for english dubbed releases of movies, but when you get right down to it, this movie wasn't a great piece of writing. The beginning opens with I think just about every Ranma TV-show character ever made, but then they all vanish so you can get to the real story, which is your standard, "Girl gets kidnapped, it's up to Guy/Girl to rescue her!" It contains a few choice moments (prince Kirin eating meat!) but other than that, it's a pretty lame movie.
But to fans it's great!
I voted it a 4 because the second Ranma movie is better by leaps. [Not bounds, just leaps]

Before three aliens accidentally land into Valerie (Geena Davis)'s pool, she is a manicurist in The Valley, California, and is about to marry a doctor, Ted (Charles Rocket), who has always been unfaithful to her. Now the arrival of the three extra-terrestrials will change Valerie's life forever.
As a sci-fi comedy, some occasional singing scenes make this film also fit the category of musical. Although this is not exactly a profound story, it is light-hearted, colorful, energetic and successfully made for the purpose of entertainment.
The whole film is a hilarious party, if you're in the mood to relax, to lay back and to kick off your shoes without wanting to explore some serious issue, then you'll have a grand time watching this. The scene Valerie "destroys" about everything in her house after she sees her fiance with another woman was skillfully filmed and acted in a very funny and original way, while Valerie sings "I've lost my faith in you".
As Valerie, Geena Davis beautifully portrayed this cheerful, optimistic, lively and strong woman. Jeff Goldblum played Mac, a charming, maturer, steadier alien while his fellow travelers Wiploc and Zeebo (played by Jim Carrey and Damon Wayens respectively) are wackier and more fun-loving. All the characters in this movie are likeable and the film itself is just as interesting.

Dive is a two-part film that centres around the life of a talented fifteen year old diver named Lindsey (Aisling Loftus) whose ambition is to join the British Olympic team in 2012. One day, she returns from practice to find that her father is leaving and her mother is in the house with her new boyfriend. Upset by this turn of events, she begins to go off the rails, meeting up with friends and drinking in the park. It's then that she meets a sixteen year old boy named Robert (Jack O'Connell). They quickly become friends and end up having unprotected sex, which results in Lindsey becoming pregnant, putting her Olympic ambitions under threat.
The main problem with Dive is that neither the plot nor the characters carry even the slightest whiff of authenticity. In fact, the characterisation in Dive is so bad that it ought to be held up as an example to teach aspiring directors and screenwriters of how not to do it. For starters, it doesn't help that Lindsey herself is an unlikeable character; passive, dull and despondent, who seems to spend most of her time staring into space. There doesn't seem to be any convincing reason for her to be this way. We don't see her having any problems at school and neither her parents, nor her mother's boyfriend are shown to be in any way abusive, violent or negligent. If anything, they're shown to be caring and supportive. Not that it would matter, as Lindsey shows little affection towards either of her parents anyway, which makes the whole "off the rails" scenario look rather implausible. When Lindsey becomes pregnant and she is unsure of whether to keep the baby or not, no reason is given to make us believe that she would risk her ambitions in order to pursue family life; at no point do we ever see a religious, maternal or nurturing side to her character. Presumably, the writers didn't think it important to include any of this. And neither was any real attempt made to make Lindsey's relationship with Robert look convincing; they go from meeting to sex in less than five minutes of screen time, with no chemistry to speak of. The writers obviously didn't want to waste time establishing their relationship in an interesting, meaningful way that might actually endear us to either of these characters.
After a while, it becomes clear that the whole situation is ridiculous and that the characters are being made to behave in an implausible manner just to create drama and to drive the plot forward (In an interview, Loftus tried to handwave this by explaining that Lindsey's decisions were "instinctive," just in case anyone mistook her character for a thinking human being.) So it should come as no surprise that after listening to the actors describing their characters that they rarely – if ever – resemble anything seen on screen. Nowhere do we see any evidence of Lindsey being "brave," "astute" or possessing tremendous foresight, for instance. Likewise, nowhere do we see Robert's alleged charisma (not unless "Are you a princess?" and " You're gorgeous," are what pass for charisma nowadays.) But then again, the actors can absolve themselves of responsibility, as the blame clearly lies on the shoulders of the writers. If we populated Dive with characters that acted true to form, Lindsey would probably never have got pregnant in the first place and there wouldn't be a story. The result of all this is a film that only works providing you don't think about it, and even then there are other problems, such the musical score, which is droning and intrusive in equal measure. The dialogue is sparse and unremarkable. And then there's the symbolism, which is sometimes delivered with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer.
But what makes it so much worse is the way that the people involved in the production kept going on about how "natural," "honest" and "realistic" it all was (the frequency of these words is rather suspicious). If challenged to point out evidence in support of this, I have no doubt they'd struggle to do so.

Too bad, I really like Kristen Cloke and Gary Busey. But the director failed to put this together. There's a lot of action, a lot of promise, but it all comes off hokey. The director didn't do his job. Promising action comes off lame. So much seems contrived in a desperate attempt to save the film. This version of "The Rage" (DirecTV credits it as 1996) simply isn't worth the time to watch it. Another director would have done a better job.

123movies Like a Boss
The Anarchist Cookbook is about the a college dropout who joins some sort of naturalist cult like team who join together thinking they are at war with society and the government. Though they are rebellious in nature they do not go over the boundaries of stepping out of line especially when it comes to the law. Everything seems to be well and doubt. A group of friends,living together in harmony discussing peaceful tactics against a government they disagree with entirely. Thats until a strange rebellion named Johnny Black enters into their lives and then their peaceful revolt and their world spirals out of control. It was a pretty OK movie. A bunch of 2000 hippie peacemakers who believe they can change the world for the better. But it wasn't anything big. I give a D+.

Let me say that this was one of the most visible TV movies to focus on 'closeted bulimia'. In this made for TV film, you have what seems to be the perfectly wonderfully "looking" wife who kept her secret of binging, exercising and purging until her body could not take it anymore - then her secret was out.
At the time this movie was aired, I didn't care to see it - I thought it was just another one of those overblown melodramatic features about selfish folks and their selfish chase after materialism. I thought I'd never meet any folks like this. But time has a way of exposing you to the truth.
Around the very same time this movie came out, after my graduation from college, I hadn't a lot of money from my new job so I had to live in an apartment building that catered to young working month to month people. We all discovered each other - and there I met a woman who every man was falling over. She was pretty, erotic, skinny. Everywhere she went men fell all over her. She was the kind of woman who could buy a man's undershirt and put it on (without underwear, mind you!)and make it look like a dress. She made me, who was of regular height and the right weight for my height feel really, really, fat. I went out to dinner on several occasions with my new friend. And she could put away the food! I thought "Wow!" and here I am...watching what I eat and I still don't look like this. What was her secret? By accident, I found out. She would buy BOTTLES of Senecot and take them promptly after each meal. When I confronted her about this her answer: "It's okay. My mom taught me how to do this. I need to look like this or men wont come near me - just like they don't come near you." At that time, I knew I could not talk any sense into her and just a few weeks after I discovered her secret, she moved away from the building.
Years later I actually sat down and watched this program - then and only then could I identify with each and every character. Especially during the group session scenes where the heaviest woman there said, "You all are afraid of looking like me." And another scene where this character's husband wascommenting on how one of the women makes $1,000 an hour and she couldn't because she was "a fat slob." That hit home. Hits home for many women. And because there was so much pressure on looking great to be on the arm of some guy, women DO go through horrible things just to be a "doll"/"trophy" figure, instead of men (and women) just loving people the way they are -- AND letting them know just that.
Did I say ... was? That this the beauty of this film. Done in 1986, it's 2006 and nothing has really changed. The same old ideals that put these characters in the position they're in, has only gotten worse. The difference is that there are tons of diet (oh forgive me for writing 'diet', I mean 'weight loss') pills and products consistently shoved down the faces of women. (I mean, the other day when they showed this film on Lifetime TV network, every other commercial was on weight-loss!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!) There is nothing wrong with looking or feeling good. There is nothing wrong with controlling and maintaining a healthy weight. But Bullemia (and anorexia) distorts that view, that though process. Add in media messages, female celebrities that are rails but look great in designer dresses at award events, music messages that constantly degrade women, personal family issues -- what can women do?!?! Closeted Bullemia has not gone away. Women are not feeling better about themselves and sadly 20 years later, nothing has been done to help - only hurt the situation.
"Kate's Secret" is a good film, and a nice place to start to show to every man and woman to begin the understanding of what many women feel they must go through just to be accepted in this society. But even in showing a film like this, there are going to be, women who were young once like me, who may not fully understand or have compassion for what is in the film - until it gets close to you.

How this dog of a series has lasted as long as it has is totally beyond me. Then again, idiotic shows like Big Brother, The Bachelor, or The Bachelorette just keep going and going and going.
I've tried watching this a couple of times and gave up in disgust. First thing they need to do is get rid of the guy playing the Manager. Not funny at all. Secondly, get rid of the writer. He can't write comedy to save his life.
There's absolutely nothing good to say about Superstore. I gave it 2 stars just because I was feeling generous. Really, it deserves 0 stars. This show is just awful. Terrible characters, terrible story lines, godawful writing. I seriously think I need to become a screenwriter because even I could write better stories than this clunker.
Don't waste a second of your time on this crap.

123movies Black and Blue
This is an excellent movie that exceeded expectations. My wife and I got to go to an advance screening and were expecting a solid 6 but it blew our socks off. Naomie Harris is phenomenal and her character Alicia's backstory is what made this such a good movie. To have grown up on those streets and know the people but to leave and serve in the Army to come back as a cop (presumably after her mother dies after you see her moms tombstone at the very beginning). This story is a great example about how one person can make a difference and that committing a crime is wrong no matter who does it.

123movies The Addams Family
This was the episode I had been awaiting more than any of this TV series . .. and I was NOT disappointed! The thought of the two superhero big-guns joining forces on TV was always a big dream of mine, and this does the job magnificently. Each hero is given their own distinct personality: Batman, dark and imposing; Superman, strong yet gentle. The personalities of the villains were also a great contrast. My highlight was the knockdown-drag-out fight between the Joker's girl, Harley Quinn and Mercey Graves, Lex Luthor's assistant. I was also surprised at the level of maturity that the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Lois Lane was handled. I especially liked the reactions of everyone when Batman threw Superman across the nightclub (especially Superman's)! What I didn't like was the way in which Superman discovered Batman's identity. I won't reveal it, but suffice it to say that Batman would be better prepared for what Superman does. All I've got to say is that I hope that some studio will bring this story to the big screen with the proper actors (Val Kilmer as Batman, Kevin Sorbo as Superman) and director (Tim Burton, please come home!).
