The chemistry between Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington is the reason why 2 Guns is quite the thrill ride.

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, you’ll enjoy the the action, humour, the buddy cop dynamic and Bill Paxton’s intense and terrifying turn as Earl.

Edward James Olmos, James Marsden, Robert John Burke and Paula Patton also star.

A very memorable moment is when Wahlberg’s character reveals who one of the bad guys reminds him of. I heard the words as I watched movie in the cinema/ theatre. The observation is so correct and well delivered that it stayed in my mind for the rest of the movie.

Watch it because it’s good.

Happy 2 Guns 🙂

The trailer for the sequel to Ride Along (2014) is here. Watch it for at least two laugh out loud moments…

I enjoy Hart most in his standup comedy  and I’ll be watching this because of the two great comedy moments in this trailer. I’m also hoping like crazy, that there’s more good stuff where that came from.

Directed by Tim Story; Olivia Munn, Kevin Jeong and Benjamin Bratt also star.

Release Date (s): January 15th, 2016 (2016) January 22nd, 2016 (UK)…

Happy Ride Along 2 🙂

Based on a hit novel by Jian Rong, Wolf Totem is the new movie from celebrated French Director Jean-Jacques Annaud.

Set amongst the nomadic herdsmen of inner Mongolia, this is a story about the challenge to find one’s true place in the world; a struggle between humans and animals…

Annaud is best known for directing Seven Years In Tibet (1997), Enemy At The Gates (2001) and Two Brothers (2004). I’ll be watching because of his reputation and the main stars of the movie, the stunning wolves, of course.

Happy Wolf Totem 🙂

Quentin Tarantino has a new movie and this time it’s a western that’s centred around bounty hunters and set in post-Civil War Wyoming.

This trailer doesn’t exactly have me yelping with joy just yet, but of course I’m intrigued and I’ll watch because it’s Tarantino and I know many good things including super dialogue and cinematography are coming.

PEOPLE PLACES THINGS (2015): Promising Trailer For New comedy Starring Jermaine Clement

Read my spoiler-free movie review of People Places Things (2015).

It looks like I’m about to enjoy more clever writing and super humour in 2015. Thanks this time to the James C. Strouse written/ directed comedy, People Places Things…

Starring Jermaine Clement, Regina Hall, Jessica Williams, Stephanie Allynne and Michael Chernus, I’m really hoping that Strouse’s movie is as welcome a surprise as The Little Death (2014) – probably the funniest movie I’ve seen this year.

Happy People Places Things 🙂

IT’S COMPLICATED (2009): Good Lighthearted Fun Starring Meryl Streep & Alec Baldwin

It’s Complicated is a well cast comedy/romance starring Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep.

Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the film follows a divorced couple who reignite their relationship even though one of them has remarried.

The couple’s complicated situation which also includes three grown up children presents a great opportunity for both comedy and drama; something Meyers took great advantage of – evident in the way the subject matter is handled.

For me, what makes It’s complicated work is Streep and Baldwin’s great chemistry. The supporting cast which includes Steve Martin, John Krasinski, Zoe Kazan, Lake Bell, Hunter Parrish and Caitlin FitzGerald certainly don’t hurt either.

I’m a big fan of Baldwin, thanks in large part to his great work as Jack Donaghy in 30 Rock. As for Meryl Streep, I almost feel like, to love film is to love her, so there really was no way I would have not watched the film.

Tune in for the subject matter and some good light hearted fun – should you be wanting that sort of thing.

Happy Film Loving
