Cloud Zombie's Film Cupboard - The Boondock Saints, Now You See Me, Now You See Me 2, Thoughtcrimes

Boondock Saints
Fraternal twins set out to rid Boston of the evil men operating there while being tracked down by an FBI agent. - IMDB 

When this film was first put on I wasn't sure, some gangsta type films can sometimes be a bit of a bore to me but The Boondock Saints carried itself well. It has a great cast that includes Willem Dafoe, Billy Connolly, Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery.
This is not your usual gangsta movie as such, the world and environment is the same but the people and the story are quite different, it also has a little Hustle/Oceans Eleven thrown in for good measure.

I give this film 5 out of 5.

Now You See Me
An FBI agent and an Interpol detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money. - IMDB 

I'm quite late to the party on this one considering the sequel has just made it's way onto streaming. Seeing the trailers for the second one made me want to give it a try. I was not disappointed either with this film, it has a great cast of people and it's great to see Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg working together again.
If you are a fan of heist movies, the TV series Hustle and similar such themes as well as illusion you will love this.

I give this film 5 out of 5.

Now You See Me 2
The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet. - IMDB 

It hadn't been long since I saw the first film when I saw this pop up in Amazon Prime, I loved the first film so I thought why not. It's more of the same so I can't complain but they have added more to the story which is quite intriguing and I certainly didn't see the ending coming. You should certainly give it a watch if you enjoyed the first one.

I give this film 4 and a half out of 5.

Freya McAllister suddenly starts hearing voices in her head on the night of her High School Prom. From then on her future ends and she is diagnosed as a violent schizophrenic and committed to a mental hospital where she spends the next eight years of her life in mental madness. One night Dr Michael Welles arrives telling Freya that she isn't crazy but that her voices are the thoughts of everyone around her. He teaches her to turn her telepathic powers into a powerful gift. What he doesn't say is that he works for the National Security Agency...- IMDB 

This film has always been a favourite of mine ever since I discovered it at the library in my teenage years. Thoughtcrimes has a great story line and wonderful characters which make you pay attention to them. A telepathic woman working within the FBI, you know something is going to happen.

I give this film 5 out of 5.
Thank you for reading!
