I’ll start by saying I’m glad this is the first movie I’ve seen starring Omar Sy. A truly brilliant introduction and first impression. If you didn’t already know of him or his equally talented costar, Francois Cluzet, you won’t forget either of them after this.
The Intouchables is a true story about the friendship between two very different people, a wealthy quadriplegic and his far from wealthy caregiver.
Written and Directed by Olivier Nakache plus Eric Toledano and highlighting the pricelessness of true friendship, this well paced French drama / comedy will have you smiling and laughing more times than you can count.
If you thought all that was enough things to love in one movie… there’s also the music.
More Bradley Cooper Please! It’s hard not to feel this way after his brilliant Oscar nominated performance in American Sniper (2014). Not to say that his new movie, Aloha is a similar kind of film, of course.
Writer/ Director, Cameron Crowe – the man responsible for the1996 hit, Jerry Maguire is back with the story of a celebrated military contractor (Cooper) who must choose between two love interests, played by Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.
Love triangles are notoriously tricky, particularly if you’re the one to do the choosing. So lets look forward to seeing how things turn out for the parties involved in Aloha. Maybe we can get a few tips.
Jennifer Lawrence is no where to be seen in this one. But you will find two great comedy Actors in the shape ofAlec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Danny McBride of Pineapple Express (2008), This Is The End (2013) and other Seth Rogen/ Judd Apatow films.
I confess that I am one of those people who watched the Despicable Me movies purely for the Minions. Imagine my joy at the news that a Minion movie was on the way, for summer 2015. Aaaaaaaahhhh!
Something tells me that I’m not the only grown up who exhibits signs of pure uncontrollable glee at the sight of the beloved Minions. Seriously, who can possibly resist the most adorable, yellow, happiness inducing and banana loving beauties?
The great new Super Bowl trailer for Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingman The Secret Service has convinced me to watch the film. I was only mildly intrigued before.
I does help that Kingsman is written by Jane Goldman – whose other writing credits include Kick-Ass (2010) and X-Men First Class (2011).
There is one thing that doesn’t sit quite so easily with me about this trailer – and that would be the claim by Alex Zane of the UK’s Sun newspaper, that Kingman – The Secret Service is ‘More Badass Than Bond.’ Please! PLEASE, I say! It’s incredibly hard to believe that there’s any other British spy movie more badass than Daniel Craig’s Bond. Incredibly hard to believe!
Walter Mitty is a man who has numerous vivid day dreams about everything he wishes he could be at a given moment but never is.
Directed by funny man, Ben Stiller, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty takes you along on a journey that leads to a point where Walter, as the movie poster suggests, stops dreaming and starts living.
This is definitely an entertaining watch and becomes most interesting and fun from the moment Walter meets the bearded and intoxicated giant (one of my favourite characters). It makes sense that the film becomes very interesting at this point because it’s soon after Walter decides to be adventurous, brave and start living.
For those who realise / feel like they haven’t done much that’s considered noteworthy and want to change that, Stiller’s movie is great inspiration to formulate a plan and take action
You’ll laugh as you watch this fun adventure / drama with several humorous characters to enjoy particularly my personal favourite, the bearded and intoxicated giant.
One of my own personal day (and night) dreams was about going to New York. I’ve been forever curious, so finally making that particular day – and night dream come true was super.
Despite the hackers, I’ve watched Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview and had a great time. I particularly loved the scenes with Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) and his Korean accent.
Fans of the lead Actor’s (Rogen and Franco’s) long standing movie bromance are bound to be very happy indeed. Especially if they accept that Franco’s character is really supposed to be that dim. Otherwise, like myself at first, Franco’s Dave Skylark may seem a tad over the top.
Rogen, Franco, Randall Park, Diana Bang and Lizzy Caplan all play their parts beautifully – along with some welcome surprise appearances from Franco and Rogen’s famous friends.
Having already paid the film my full attention and had fun, in true movie fan style, The Interview will now be one of those movies I have playing in the background (nstead of music) as I do other things.
