Whether you need convincing that travel is a good idea or not, this movie does a good job of reminding you of travel’s great ability to help you see things with renewed clarity; whether it’s because of the people you meet whilst away or the physical distance from your daily routine.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt are in a movie together. The film is written/ directed by Angelina and they’re playing a couple in crisis…
I’m a tad late in writing about this movie. Reason being, I was disappointed that the trailer didn’t have me more excited. Upon reflection though, I think my lack of excitement may have been because I’ve seen some exceptionally thrilling trailers this summer, and By The Sea is a complete change of pace.
It could also be the case that the trailer simply doesn’t excite me. Further still,I may also be afraid I won’t enjoy watching a real life couple (that I admire) playing a couple who are clearly in trouble. It’s just too close to a worst case scenario that I don’t really want to contemplate.
I write all that to say that had the same trailer been released, but with Angelina and a different actor or Brad and a different actress, would I have the same reservations? I’m thinking probably not.
I’ll still definitely watch, of course.
Release Dates: November 13th 2015 (U.S.), December 11th 2015 (U.K.)
Apocalyptic films are here to stay people! Here comes one more starring Chloe Grace Moretz…
The 5th Wave is intriguing, though I love Moretz best in the original Kick-Ass (2010) movie. I found her performance just so, so inIfI Stay (2014). My fingers are crossed that The 5th Wave surprises me most pleasantly.
Live Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Ron Livingston, Maria Bello and Nick Robinson also star.
Release Dates: January 15th 2016 (U.S.), January 22nd 2016 ((U.K.)
If watching The Theory Of Everything (2014)wasn’t enough to awaken you to the considerable acting talents of Eddie Redmayne, the new trailer for his latest Tom Hooper directed movie, The Danish Girl should be enough to inform you of what’s what…
Alicia Vikander, Ben Whishaw, Matthias Schoenaerts and Amber Heard also star.
Release Dates: November 27th 2015 (U.S.), January 1st 2016 ((U.K.)
The actual Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook had zero involvement in the making of The Social Network. Still, considering how well publicised the legal drama around Facebook was at the time, one can imagine that there’s likely more truth in the movie than fabrication.
With reputable names like screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher attached to the project, as a fan of great writing, not seeing The Social Network would have been, to put it inoffensively, most ill-advised. Sorkin’s dialogue is absolutely my favourite thing about this film, particularly everything that Jesse Eisenberg gets to say in his role as Zuckerberg. The words, rhythm and pace are really a thing to experience.
A reason to watch is the example of what good screenwriting can look like. Another reason is curiosity about the movie version of the Facebook story. As I watched The Social Network, I found myself thinking about how much truth there is in the idea that often, many high achievers tend not to be the most likeable people, personality-wise. Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs are two impressive people that come to mind.
Andrew Garfield, Max Minghella, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer and Rooney Mara feature as the more than competent supporting cast. Looking at the picture above, I can’t help but agree with the line in the movie that refers to the ‘niceness’ of the face of Erica Albright /Rooney Mara. It is quite the work of art.
Written and directed by the Nolan brothers, (Jonathan and Christopher) The Dark Knight is the second movie in a notable three part series that started with Batman Begins (2005).
Christian Bale is back as Batman and this time he must face off with Gotham’s current havoc wreaking menace, the Joker.
Like all films by the Nolan brothers, The Dark Knight is no exception to the rule of storytelling excellence, engaging dialogue, action sequence prowess, a brilliant musical score and truly memorable performances.
As good as Bale is in the role of Batman – and he is very good, the most memorable performance in The Dark Knight is delivered by the unfortunately late but unforgettable Australian actor, Heath Ledger.
Whether he had passed as he did before the film’s release or not, it’s near enough impossible to think of and mention The Dark Knight without also highlighting what Ledger accomplished with this one role. His portrayal of the Joker is simply one of the most mesmerising things I’ve ever seen on screen. So much so that each time the camera wasn’t on him, it felt like the movie was moving noticeably slower.
The entire film is quite the achievement, thanks to a superior filmmaking team that includes, along with the leading cast, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and ‘super composer’, Hans Zimmer.
Most film lovers have already seen The Dark Knight. But to all who haven’t, get ready for a great opening and closing sequence, as well as a memorable plenty more in between.
One of the best moments in the opening sequence has to be the surprise of what William Fichtner’s badass Bank Manager character does when he gets on his feet. If you’ve seen it, you understand.
R.L. Stine is the real life award winning author of hugely successful young adult horror stories. Goosebumps is one of his series and the second trailer for the film adaption just arrived.
Directed by Rob Letterman, Goosebumps features Jack Black as R.L. Stine. Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee and Halston Sage also star in this action/ adventure / comedy that will be arriving just in time for Halloween.
The trailer editors appear to have tried to match the original goosebumps font towards the end of the trailer. Though I’m not sure why they didn’t at 1:03 minutes.
I used to love the books so I really hope the movie is worthy.
