This is a very mature & violent movie which was executive produced by Whalberg, who also stars as the ‘Lone Survivor’, and you can see in his performance and from the credits that roll at the end of the film, that he was very invested in this story. The movie shows us dramatic events, the stress and trauma a modern soldier fighting the “war on terror” endures over a short period of time in their lives, one that leads to suicides and many other problems for our returning veterans. The film gives very emotional and violent experience that is just fantastic.

‘John Carter’ is sci-fi masterpiece that bears watching more than once, and is complex and nuanced enough that subsequent viewings will no doubt reveal new treasures and clarify the minor rough edges, that usually happens every time we watch any movie. The story is mixture of Planet of the Apes, Conan, Red Sonja, Avatar, Star Wars and Superman. The special effects here are organic. Also the cinematography of the film is spectacular and stunning.

The first season of the series came in early 2014 and it was renewed for its third season in 2017. Taylor Kitsch plays as California Highway Patrol Officer Paul Woodrugh in the show. The atmosphere and the southern ambiance of this show are so rich and the cinematography is very beautiful.

 

7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Wolverine is by far the best written and one of the best acted characters in the X-Men franchise. The movie is as good as the first X-Men movie, and better than X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand. The fight scenes in the movie are brutal and intense which makes them really awesome. The part and character of Sabertooth was really well done. There is action from start to finish and it’s non-stop. The opening title sequence should win some kind of award. The editing is perfect in the movie and you will surely get goose bumps in some scenes.

In this miniseries ‘The FBI and ATF seize religious leader David Koresh’s Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas in the spring of 1993.’ Taylor Kitsch gives an interesting and excellent perfomance as David Koresh. Michael Shannon is also excellent as an FBI Agent who tries to do his job right and with less casualties as possible. Telling this story in the form of a mini-series is interesting. Viewers can watch one episode, then research the story on their own, and discuss it with others, and then watch the next episode.
