Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Matthew Vaughn, 2017)
When their headquarters is obliterated, the Kingsman’s contingency plan leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the United States.
What I like most about the Kingsman movie franchise and the graphic novels that they’re based on is the swagger with which they take on the spy genre; and it goes well beyond the tailor-fit apparel they flaunt so well. Matthew Vaughn and the gang seem to do all the spy things with a gentleman’s smirk. The plot, the action set pieces, and the instantly memorable gags operate right on the boundary of disbelief, just enough to make Kingsman stand out from Bond and Bourne (and Bauer). Even though “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is a major release and won the top spot of the weekend box office rankings (and therefore isn’t an underseen movie in any way), I was so impressed by it that I decided to make it today’s ADAF post. “Kingsman” shows that spy movies don’t have to be so serious all the time and it does so with a smile and a tip of the hat.

" It is our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he knew to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that? "
Happy Birthday ★ Will Smith ★ one of the best and most versatile actors in the last 30 years. In my opinion his best role was in "The Pursuit of Happyness" which he stared in along with his son Jaden. It was one of the best performances of the decade but sadly did not win him the Oscar which is long over due for him.

I’ve decided that I’m going to try and post more stills from my work. The next few are going to be from a project that isn’t released yet, but was an epic ocean experience providing some insane images. [1of6] #framez#sonyframez#a7sii

LAF - Movie Review:
Wendy and Lucy (2008)
Director: Kelly Reichardt + Writing
Writer: Jonathan Raymond
Producer: Larry Fessenden, Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani
Cinematography: Sam Levy
Synopsis: Over the summer, a series of unfortunate happening triggers a financial crisis for a young woman and she soon finds her life falling apart.
In my research of new films I happen to go on more often than not I came across Kelly Reichardt and her features. Wendy and Lucy is the first embarkment upon my collection of hers. I was not disappointed. Her style is perfectly melancholic, and she brings a sense of heightened naturalism in her films - just because through her use of film stock - the shots look continually beautiful. This is a very short and saddening story of a woman Wend in dire economic circumstances travelling across America to Alaska with her dog Lucy. The main conflict of the film is quite early on, and then the rest of the film is a coping. Michelle Williams is amazing. She is one of the best actresses working today. I am excited to view more of Kelly’s work.
