In 2028, Nurse has run Los Angelos’s Hotel Artemis for 22 years but it’s not a hotel.  The only open floor is the penthouse and its a hospital for criminals.  They must pay monthly dues, bring no guns, have no visitors, do no business, and never bring the police to the hotel.  And Nurse keeps everyone in line with an orderly properly named Everest.  Each room in the penthouse has a name and the patient is only referred to by this name.  The current patients are:

  • Nice: A hitwoman who only goes after important people and has an interesting implant
  • Honolulu: A bank robber with multiple guns shot wounds and a stolen pen
  • Waikiki: A bank robber who tried to get out of life but kept paying his dues
  • Acapulco: An arms dealer with a big mouth and something to prove

But two patients will cause every rule in Hotel Artemis to be broken, leaving a bloodbath.

If you are a fan of John Wick, this is right up your alley.  This movie gives you enough back story on each character to see how they are all interconnected as friends, lovers, and enemies.  It’s hard to understand how this Hotel has stood the test of time.  However, with the rules and security, everything stays in place.  Also, you will get the added bonus of learning the truth about Hotel Artemis’s start by Nurse making a deal with the devil.  Be warned there are some violent moments, so younger children should not attend.  This is going to be a cult classic and it is possible for a part 2.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

I may be a professional but she is the business – Waikiki

Don’t cross my line – Nice

I am not fat – Everest

Get your hands off the Guc – Acapulco

Those things will kill you – Nurse

Adrift – Review

Adrift – Budget of $35 million – 1 hour and 36 minutes

Grifter Tami Ashcraft just drifted to Tahiti.  She has no job, direction, nor money.  Her plan is always the same.  Find a job, save money, and go to the next place.  While painting a boat, she sees Richard coming ashore.  Their connection is instant and strong.  After a few magical days together, Richard asks her to sail away with him.  She agrees.  But before they can get away, Richard is offered a job.  Sail a man’s yacht to San Diego and earn $10,000 and 2 first class tickets back to Tahiti.  Tami doesn’t want to head to San Diego because it’s home.  She is not ready to go home just yet.  However, out of fear of holding Richard back, she agrees to go.  The first few days are lovely but when a hurricane hits, the loving couple will be tested in faith, strength, and love.

Based on the novel Red Sky in Mourning by Tami Ashcraft and Susea McGearhart, this is the harrowing survival of 41 days adrift supported by true love (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  After Richard is injured, he guides Tami into sailing them to safety.  However, when they realize that California is too dangerous, the sail to Hawaii.  For them, it will be like hitting a moving target.  And if they miss, the closes land is Japan.  So with little water, little food, no power, no radio, and injuries, they have to fight to live.

I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars

Whatever job pays enough to get to the next place – Tami
