10 Best Movies of 2017

I’ve given you my worst of the year list so I’ll end the year on a positive note with the best. 2017 was another year of change for Kneel Before Blog. The biggest change was that we switched to a star rating system for film around halfway through the year. TV will continue to be…

The Disaster Artist

The story of the making of what many consider to be the worst film of all time is chronicled in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist I’ll start by addressing the biggest question that people will have before going into this film. Whether it’s essential to see The Room or not will probably inform many decisions to…

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams – Season 1 Episode 6

“Human Is” The Philip K. Dick anthology series Electric Dreams continues this week, offering up its sixth instalment, Human Is.  An adaptation of a short story of the same name, Human Is garnered much of the pre-release hype for the series due to its casting of award-magnet Bryan Cranston in the leading role.  And so with hopes sufficiently raised we…

Why Him?

An uptight father butts heads with his daughter’s inappropriate internet millionaire boyfriend in John Hamburg’s Why Him? Frequent readers of this site will know that I don’t watch many comedies because the style of humour isn’t really to my taste very often. This particular one appealed to me because of Bryan Cranston. I think he…

The Infiltrator

Brad Furman’s The Infiltrator tells the true story Robert Mazur; a man who went undercover to uncover large scale drug and money laundering operations.

Trumbo

Jay Roach’s Trumbo casts Bryan Cranston in the real life story of Dalton Trumbo, a screenwriter who was instrumental in the end of the Hollywood Blacklist that prevented people from working due to their political beliefs. It’s a story worth telling as it was a very dark period in Hollywood and America’s history. There have…
