The latest trailer for the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars – The Last Jedi is here. Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver, the story continues with Rey (Ridley) on her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker following the events of Star Wars Episode 7 – The force Awakens (2015)

I like the first 20 seconds of this trailer. After that though, it becomes a little tedious and leavesย me thinking, ‘I know how to breathe but what else have you got?’ I found the trailers for the previous Star Wars movie far more exciting and thrilling – teaser trailer or not. It’s probably too early to call it of course. So I wait.

Star Wars – The Last Jedi Release Dates: December 15th, 2017 (UK & US)…

SILENCE (2016): New Trailer From Director Martin Scorsese, Starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson…

Oscar winning director Martin Scorsese’s latest movie doesn’t look like it has a single gangster in sight. Starring Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as Jesuit priests in the 17th century, the film follows the pair to Japan where they go on a dangerous journey to find their mentor (Liam Neeson) and spread the word about Christianity…

I’m looking forward to finding out what magic Scorsese can create in what looks like a very different genre of film than what we’re used to expecting from the acclaimed director.

Silence Release Dates: December 23rd, 2016 (US)ย January, 1st 2017 (UK)…

Adam driver is Paterson, a bus driver / poet in the newย Jim Jarmusch directed comedy drama, Paterson.ย Quite poetically,ย Paterson alsoย happens to be set in Paterson, New Jersey and promises to be an interesting observation of what oftenย happens in daily life and the poetry it canย inspire…

I’m curious about this movie because of Driver. I’d like to believe there’s something very special about itย because he chose to be in it. I’m also a poetry fan, when it’s good. However, one truth is very clear at this point. This trailer is nothing if not a definite sleep inducer. May the poetry featured please not be so.

Golshifteh Farahani andย Chasten Harmonย also star.

Paterson Release Dates: November 25th, 2016 (UK); December 28th, 2016 (US)…

WHAT IF (2013): For The Comedy & Relatable Love & Life Challenges

Thanks to good writing and a very talented cast, What If is funny, kind of kooky, possesses an uncommon realness and features a well chosen musical score.

Daniel Radcliffe, Adam Driver, Zoe Kazan, Rafe Spall, Meghan Park and Mackenzie Davisย are the stars of this Michael Dowse directed comedy / romance.

Kazan, an actress Iโ€™ve loved sinceย the beautiful Ruby Sparks (2012) is as adorable as ever and the chemistry between her character and that played by Radcliffe is very convincing.

Watch What Ifย for the comedy, the relatable predicaments faced by the characters and the useful wisdom about life and love.

WHILE WEโ€™RE YOUNG (2015): Comedy About Some Of The Challenges Of Middle Age

Witten and directed by Noah Baumbach, While Weโ€™re Young stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a middle aged couple, who are having difficulty letting go of the idea of themselves as young. Especially so after they meet and befriend two 25 year olds played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver.

The jokes about ageing are my favourite moments in While Weโ€™re Young. I also enjoyed the character study of the man Stiller plays.ย In particular, the wayย heโ€™s an example of what it can be like during middle age, when certain paths/ projects that had been an option years before, end up not being committed toย or completed.

I really hope that when itโ€™s my turn, Iโ€™ll be able to handle the idea of youth being something in my past with at least a touch of grace. However, based on the sizeable meltdown Iย had when I turnedย twenty. I wouldn’t advise betting on it.
