Outbreak (1995)

Outbreak (1995)

In July of 1967, In Motaba River Valley, Zaire, a virus with a 100% mortality rate starts infecting people. The virus becomes known as the Motaba virus, and it's so deadly that it causes severe bleeding and liquefies internal organs, killing within 3 days. The virus wipes out Motaba River Valley, and a devastatingly huge fire bomb is dropped onto Motaba River Valley in order to reduce the chances of further infection. The bomb was dropped on the orders of corrupt General Donald McClintock, even though an army surgeon, General Bill Ford, was against the idea. 27 years later, in 1994, there is another outbreak in Motaba River Valley. At the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), located at Fort Detrick in Maryland, Colonel Sam Daniels is doing research on the Motaba virus, and so is his ex-wife Roberta Keough, who works at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. A monkey carrying the Motaba virus stows away on a ship that is heading for the USA, and after the monkey's arrival, people in Cedar Creek, California start becoming infected by the virus. Sam and Roberta head into Cedar Creek with fellow doctor Casey Schuler, and they start searching for the monkey, thinking that the monkey is the key to finding a cure. Along the way, Sam stumbles onto some information that may be of help -- McClintock has been concealing vital information from the president of the United States. Since 1967, McClintock and Ford … (Read More)

Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla (2014)

reviewed by: max crawford "the eventual climactic monster showdown is everything a godzilla fan could hope for." if you're a film in 2014 and you're still relegating female characters to tragic backstory or hero's moping wife roles, you need to sit down and have a word with yourself. the only female character with any real agency in gareth edwards' godzilla is a 300-foot monster that eats nuclear submarines. it's a shame, because it's the sort of film you want to be shouting about from the rooftops, and adding niggling little caveats somewhat ruin the effect. not only is it an astounding spectacle, it's a proper godzilla movie, spitting atomic fire in the face of roland emmerich's misbegotten 1998 atrocity. the opening titles set the tone: over a montage of 1950s atomic bomb tests, the credits appear alongside tantalising snippets of information which are quickly whited out as if by a censor. the sequence was designed by kyle cooper, the man behind the main titles for se7en and every other film with a decent main title sequence, and it neatly reflects the teasing approach taken to revealing big g himself. that's right, there's plenty of trivial human nonsense to be gotten out of the way before we encounter any monsters at all, let alone their king. if you simply must have humans in your film, bryan cranston and juliette binoche are two pretty solid picks. their early scenes in a nuclear power plant in tokyo lend the film a grounding and emotional heft that's rare in a summer … (Read More)
