‘Unknown’ – Thrilling Joyride!

‘Unknown’ – Thrilling Joyride!

I have always enjoyed watching Liam Neeson play these action roles where his character normally gets the loose end of the rope.  He plays yet, another character with the same dilemma in the movie ‘Unknown’.  I actually watched the movie without much expectation, just expecting it to be the normal action type of movie.  It is actually, but there is a twist in the end, as the character of Liam Neeson starts to unravel.  I didn’t sense it at first, but soon I realized that his character just had to be finished off because in his line of work, loose ends just have to be finished off!  I first learned about this type of plotline in that classic French spy caper – La Femme Nikita – where all trained assassins who go awry – have to be disposed of!

Well, since he’s playing the main character, Liam Neeson, could not be disposed of – and that’s how the story unravels. With the help of an unexpected heroine, played by Diane Kruger, they both try to solve the mystery of Liam Neeson’s real identity.  After that car crash which caused his coma, he has to find out who he really is! And that’s where all the fun begins!

I love seeing Berlin in winter! It’s cold and dreary yet beautiful to see.  The rave dance scene, the Brandenburg gate, the sleek, modern trains, the characters speaking in German, seeing all taxis to be Mercedes Benzes – all these create an atmosphere of dread for Liam Neeson’s character.

Well, there is collateral damage always for action movies of this type – but at least here, I did care about what happened to each of them – from the nurse, to that African taxi driver to that former Stasi employee.  All these characters help Liam find out who he is – and they all had to pay for their lives doing it!

Eye Candy in ‘Indie Boys’

Eye Candy in ‘Indie Boys’

I wasn’t expecting much from ‘Indie Boys’ but I was pleasantly surprised!  I actually like it!  Well, it has many imperfections but I’ve kinda lowered my standards for local gay indie movies to just a few criteria.
#1 There should be enough zizi scenes to keep me interested. CHECK.  This movie has three (3) zizi scenes, albeit short, but still interesting!  Guio Munoz, Charles Delgado and Kristoffer King go frontal in this movie and my favorite would be that of Charles, whose zizi scene appears in the end of the movie.  It was interestingly, a little bit hard!
#2  It should have some funny moments. The presence of movie reporter Shalala provides some light moments and veteran actress, Anita Linda, probably provided the best funny scene here.  Towards the end of the movie, she teaches the novice lead actor how to invite the public to watch the movie she just produced, in a teary-eyed way.  Satire at its best! Also, the audition scenes are hilarious and cringe-worthy at the same time.
#3  No glamorization of poverty scenes.  Yes, they are call boys.  Yes, they sell their bodies for money.  But I actually hate it when gay indie movies puts self-pity or glamorizes the poverty of the characters.  In this movie, there was none.  Poverty was presented as it is – as part of the characters in the movie.
#4 The presence of at least ONE HOT DUDE. For me it was Andrew Miguel.  Not quite a thespian but he’s ok.  Cute, hot and enough shirtless scenes. Sadly, no zizi scenes.

The movie is still showing at Robinson’s Galleria so go and catch it.  There was a good crowd during the last full show on a Monday night.  Not bad.
