Listen: Gandhi Johnson, Brandon, Cindy discussed on One Two Review
"Your host Marley Kaufman. And I'm here with Brandon and NYC say, Hello, Brandon. Hey, Marlene glad to be here. And I'm also here with Alex live from Mexico City on his first leg of the pitch PU Mexican initiative say Ola, Alex almost pass one to review is a podcast wherein we rate and review movies in the simplest way possible. We give the movie one point if we didn't like it. And we give it sou- points. If we did like it do rate and review movies until we get to twenty points. And then we call it a day. Let's kick that intro. All right, folks, we are here to review movies. And that's what we're going to. Do. We are in our one of our first twenty four hour co Ed sleepover retested our metal seafood can get through twenty four hours of reviewing films trying to get to two hundred points. We're going to start with a film called a mother's love for a son. This was directed. By j l Bartlett says a two thousand fourteen film this films, the story of Cindy Johnson. And her son who's been bullied in class when the police won't help her with it Cindy has no choice, but to take matters in her own hands for me this film, had shades of milk absence. Ransom and Halle Berry's kidnap. What did you to think of a mother's love for her son? This movie was in a word shocking. You don't expect a movie starring children to be this violent? And yet there were some very disturbing scenes in it. I don't know Brandon. What is you think? I like these type of movies, I like the movie where you know, someone is bullied or. Done wrong. And they get to take the revenge, and this is one of those movies. Yeah. Absolutely shocking. That it happens to be revenge on kids, but kids got to get there camapigns, something I always say and to see that in film for once is really satisfying. And I mean, let's be careful here with the idea of like these are kids because they are. But I would say the bullies in this film are assholes these are bad kids. This reminds me of the bullies from the films in the eighties. You know, they're dropping the F word on the kid left. And right. They're calling him fat. There's just horrible horrible abuse to to our main kid. What was his name Gandhi Johnson that poor kid gets, you know, really run through the ringer. And I really feel like those bullies deserved the ultra violence that they end up receiving by the end of the film. It wouldn't be justified. If they weren't as bad as they were it's true. But these were still nine and ten year old actors. So there is something very upsetting seeing. Them tied up seeing them waterboarded. I mean, I don't know where Cindy Johnson learned these skills, but well SE Siegman, the the actress she's actually she has she's served in the FBI or something like her background is in clear, but she has some sort of history of actual what do you call it police work or whatever she's been in that field before? So I think she really brought that to the film. I've never seen her before. I think she was refreshing. She's built like an enemy fighter, which leaves some some. Yeah. Some truth to the movie intimidation is half the game of torturing somebody, and she definitely excels in that. And. Yeah.."
