In The Dark Tower, Idris Elba plays a gunslinger named Roland Deschain, a man who roams an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the ‘man in black’ (Matthew McConaughey). Deschain is also searching for the fabled Dark Tower in hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world…
The plot of The Dark Tower is certainly unlike any Stephen King story I’m familiar with and that’s reason enough for me to watch. There’s also the names Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba to convince me further. I really want this to be good; toes, fingers and everything crossed.
Katheryn Winnick, Tom Taylor, Nikolaj Arcel, Abbey Lee and Claudia Kim also star.
Office Christmas Party is the latest comedy from Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Olivia Munn and Jason Bateman.
Directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, the story involves a bunch of grownup office workers partying hard and behaving quite badly.
Ill advised as it may be, Jennifer Aniston and my love for her work on Horrible Bosses (2011) is the key reason I’ll be tuning in. Not that I want a carbon copy , of course, but I’d much rather this movie be like Horrible Bosses than The Night Before (2015). The former was brilliant but the latter, not so much.
May this also be nothing like Sisters (2015), a movie similar to The Night Before in the way that it features grownups unconvincingly doing things and behaving in ways that would make sense for teenagers only.
Nicolas Winding Refn, celebrated director of Drive (2011) and Only God Forgives (2013)has a new movie. Starring Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks and Bella Heathcote, what we have is a thriller / horror coming…
I haven’t watched Refn’s previous movie Only God Forgives (2013) but it’s clear to me that the man loves neon. This time round neon is not just part of the cinematography / mis en scene, but it’s in the movie’s title.
I’ll be watching because drive was good, as is Fanning. I just need to get brave first. You know, for the horror.
Keanu Reeves, Jena Malone Desmond Harrington and Charles Baker also star…
