ROOM (2015): Brie Larson In Eerie New Teaser Trailer

The new trailer for Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamsson and starring Brie Larson doesn’t reveal very much. However, that’s part of what makes it good. Especially if you have an overactive imagination like mine…

I last saw Larson in The Gambler (2015), where she gave a good performance alongside Mark Wahlberg. As such, I’m quite excited to witness more of her talents in this leading role.

Happy eerie Room 🙂

Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci are the stars of Spotlight, a true story about abuse and a gross coverup…

Why empathy / love is key to the eradication of the ills. I’ll be watching because the cast is brilliant plus, I desperately want to see the good guys win.

Release Date (s): November 6th, 2015 (US), January 29th 2016 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

The latest trailer for Seth Rogen’s new film, The Night Before is here…

Directed by Jonathan Levine, starring Seth Rogen, Antony mackie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lizzy Kaplan and Jillian Bell, of course it’s a comedy and I already can’t wait. 

I’m just glad that as far as I can tell from the trailer, I can’t see any reason why Sony would have to pull out of releasing this one (fingers crossed).

Release Date (s): November 2oth, 2015 (UK), December 4th, 2015 (UK)…

HOME (2015): I Watched For The Cute Alien & Jim Parsons’ Voice

I knew I’d end up watching Home, if only because of Jim Parsons, an Actor rightly celebrated for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper in CBS’ The Big Bang Theory.

Also starring Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez and directed by Tim Johnson, Home centres around a cute purple alien called Oh and his friendship with earthling girl, Tip (Rihanna).

The Boov, Oh’s alien race are undeniably cute and Home has several amusing moments – my favourite of which is when Oh learns about dancing. The way the story of the Gorg is concluded at the end is also great.

You may find the ‘bad English’ / interesting way that the Boov speak quite annoying. I sure did at first. But now, after a second viewing, the word adorable comes to mind instead.

The story is engaging but don’t be surprised if you get the urge to watch The Big Bang Theory as Home plays. Something to do with the pace of Home, perhaps. It could also be more about the power of the brilliant character that is Shelley Cooper.

Happy Home 🙂

THE PERFECT GUY (2015): New Trailer Starring Michael Ealy & Morris Chestnut Thriller

The Perfect Guy stars Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathaan and Michael Ealy and it has a new trailer.

No one is ever really perfect, of course and this David M, Rosenthal directed movie deals with one scary extreme. The point when a masculine, protective male crosses the line and becomes something else entirely.

Looking forward to seeing how the story plays out; though I can probably guess. Still, I’m hoping that my expectations will be exceeded, especially considering the trailer has already shown what looks like at least 90% of the plot.

Happy The Perfect Guy 🙂

EXPERIMENTER (2015): Time To Think About How Good You Are At Obeying Authority

Based on the work of real life social psychologist Stanley Milgram, Experimenter focuses on the 1961 radical behavior experiments that Milgram carried out, in order to test the ordinary person’s willingness to obey authority.

With  Peter Sarsgaard, John Leguizamo, Winona Ryder and Anton Yelchin as the leading cast, I’m excited to see  how this intriguing true story plays out.

Happy Experimenter 🙂

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS (2015): New Trailer Featuring Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski & Good Music

I wasn’t sure what to make of the initial trailer for Zac Efron’s latest movie, We Are Your Friends, but after watching the second, my mind is changed.

Movies that have characters working hard, sacrificing and dedicating their energy to whatever it is that makes them come alive are always appealing. Especially when the characters are faced with outside pressure to do the contrary.

Directed by Max Joseph and featuring a supporting cast that includes Wes Bentley, Emily Ratajkowski and Shiloh Fernandez, I’ll definitely be watching – for the story the promise of good electronic/ dance music.

Happy We Are Your Friends 🙂
