The Silver Bullet ~ Morgan


Synopsis: A corporate risk-management consultant has to decide and determine whether or not to terminate an artificial being’s life that was made in a laboratory environment.

Release Date: September 2, 2016

Thoughts: Though I feel like I’ve seen this overall plot before (as recently as 2015’s Ex Machina), Morgan has a lot of positives going for it. It wasn’t made for much but it looks nice and expensive, it has a cast blooming with both interesting actresses on the rise (Kate Mara, Iron Man 2, and Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch, and Rose Leslie, Honeymoon) as well as veteran character actors (Jennifer Jason Leigh, The Hateful Eight; Paul Giamatti, San Andreas).  It’s also produced by Ridley Scott (The Martian)…but then again his son did direct it so I’m sure he’s wearing his producer hat while drinking out of his Best Dad Ever mug.  The last Scott offspring that directed a movie was Jordan and she gave us the underrated gem Cracks so here’s hoping an eye for unsettling films runs in the family.

Thoughts: Notable really for being the first movie that Rumer Willis has a sizable role in, this film looks to be a true indie pic all the way.   It’s these little movies that tend to sneak up on you and I’ve actually read several good things about the film and Willis’ performance.  Now judging by the trailer this is your standard tale of boy and girl seaside romance that is fetted by secrets and doubt…but maybe there’s something more here.  It’s anybody’s guess if Willis has the chops to make this acting thing work but everyone deserves a fighting chance, right?
